episode 2: fluffy's got a death wish


Welcome to Episode # 2 of Filling the Page. The PodCast by a guy who wants to do everything. This show features discussion on work environment, beer, books, and fluffy dogs. I was shocked to discover that I had to leave about half my intended material on the cutting room floor. I was more comfortable when doing episode #2 than I was doing episode #1, hence the verbosity.

Coming off several rock and roll shows, two back to back from this past weekend, I was feeling quite brain dead. But I had a good time recording this.

happy weekend

A quick, Happy Friday to my new readers….and to Brian and Zach. It’s been a good week. I got my new guitar – finally. I submitted my first short story to market, which coincided with my first successful short story completion. Today, I made a concrete decision to submit my novel in the next couple of weeks. Needless to say, there is definitely plenty to talk about on next week's PodCast.

Some subjects I’ll be hitting, not necessarily in this order:
  • Fitness and Focus

  • Working Environment

  • Cocktail of the Week

  • Gripes

  • Mini-book Review:

  • -Anthem, Ayn Rand

  • -A Game of Thrones, George R.R. Martin

Thought of the moment: It is impossible to listen to the Who and be in a bad mood. Don't forget to call and say hello as the voice mail is working now. (206) 222-CAPN

Be sexy,
Phil

her kiss was sweet

I know I’m loveable.  But, really…For everyone who has sent me a message, thanks for the kind words.   I firmly believe that I adhered to the PodCasting rule of firsts; however, your support and affection is much appreciated.  Several of you fine people have asked that I make this a weekly PodCast (as opposed to bi-weekly).   I don’t see that happening just now.  I’ll *never* be able to fit claymation into my schedule.

I’m not opposed to the idea of a weekly PodCast.  It’s just not in the cards right now. I’ve got hectic show schedules, international trips, recording of albums, writing of novels, and being magnificent to contend with.  

Oh. Voicemail is working now, too.  So, you don’t have to pretend to be fax machine.  Or you could pretend to be a fax machine.  I’m sure I’d get a kick out of it.

xoxo,
Phil

post title (required)

Happy day after President’s Day.    I was shocked to have yesterday off from work.  However, that shock did not stop me from enjoying my day. I managed to finish a web design project and I got about half-way through writing a new short story. I’m actually digging this one.  The last story I wrote gave me that bad, Sci Fi Saturday vibe.  Don’t now what I’m talking about?
Consider yourself lucky.  Lou Diamond Philips would know what I’m talking about, though.

Anyway, here is a link to something *very* cool:

problem child

Sometimes, you just need to know when to give up.  Right?  I wrote a short story a few weeks back.  I’m presently going through and editing it.  But, the thing is terrible.  I mean, it’s really, really, really bad.   You know what it makes me think of – one of those completely terrible Sci Fi channel flicks they air on Saturday afternoons.    Only worse.  

So, what do I do? Do I try to finish the damn thing? Or do I surrender to its crappiness?
I’ll be recording the PodCast *very* soon.   Oh, how much you have to look forward to!
