All the magicks


Actually, I like my coffee with cream. A little less evil, just like my magic.

First things first, new episode of It’s Unclear Podcast is up. We’re already in season 2 at this point (look how fancy) and I guess I never shared it here. Get it on iTunes. I have also reconnected this blog to Facebook, for what it’s worth.

The first week of using Blue Apron is done and so far I like it. It’s as close to having a mommy as you can get without someone actually cooking the food for you, if that is what it takes for us to actually eat something but crackers and cheese for dinner (not a bad thing) then so be it.

I’ve started listening to the radio a lot more recently on the weekends (Saturday afternoon and evening shows on KEXP are highly recommended) and I’m really digging Moon Duo

We’re in a state of constant remodeling and spent weeks painting our bedroom and I’m fucking sick and tired of it. The level of frustration and anger painting walls creates in me is a bit strange but it is what it is. I’m done and I think it looks like shot but I’ll settle for “good enough” like a loser. I need to remember that at least we have a Condo and not a house because with that type of endless project I’d just resign myself to live in a disgusting nest forever and ever.

I like roasted chicken as much as the next person, but while it’s hard to really fuck up it’s also easy to just have it come out ‘okay.’ So yesterday I made beer can chicken just to read, as it was in the oven, that the whole beer can chicken thing is somewhat bullshit, aside from the fact that having the chicken sit on its butt makes for a more even (and faster) roast. It tasted okay, but I think the next time I might just invest in one of vertical roast contraptions. Speaking of food, I’ve come across these DIY instant noodle recipes and, if I can get myself to do it I might just try making these.

Anyway…I don’t have a Sirius subscription so I have to take advantage of the rare opportunities out there and it turns out Howard Stern’s interview with Bill Murray is put up on Soundcloud!



In other, more personal news, we had to take the kitty to the vet, which is never fun for anyone, even though she’s relatively calm and collected, if not excited. That’s better though than having a cat that fights tooth and nail to not get into the carrier, not get touched by the vet, and so on. She got her shots, everything’s in order and the kitty is doing fine fine fine.

As usual, with a flip of the switch, fall is here and it’s windy and grey and rainy and chilly and I’m happy we have a car this time around.

Also, to toot my own horn, episode 2 of It’s Unclear is available and you can subscribe and download it on iTunes or stream it on Soundcloud, whatever you prefer. We talk about Halloween stuff, so this week would be perfect to listen to it, if you haven’t done so already!

Whoops, here it is!

So, after a long long time and a lot of back and forth a friend of mine and I recorded a podcast! It’s called It’s Unclear and we’re going to try to record it pretty regularly, I hope. But thanks to technology you don’t have to check anything, but can simply subscribe to it here on iTunes and the new episodes will show up on your computer as soon as they are out.

So if you want to hear my amazing ESL-laced voice, tune in for talk about fake sugar, humans with tails, and idiot princes.
