Title: just post
Post by: hatmoose on April 24, 2018, 04:36:43 PM
since it's quiet around here i thought i'd make a casual conversation thread, to lower the barrier to entry.

just post whatever you want to talk about, if you don't feel like making a big ol topic.

i've been listening to old time radio shows all day at my office job. i have a lot of free time there. my big ones that i like are:

vic and sade, a short comedy program that is basically 3 people talking to each other about minor domestic issues. it ran for like 12 years and is the most sublime thing ever. i want to go to wisconsin to look at the collection of scripts they have at a library there. it has a lot of running jokes that give me that phat dopamine or whatever when i recognize them, it's pavlovian. it reminds me a lot of the jon wurster calls on the best show with tom scharpling

yours truly, johnny dollar - a mystery show about an insurance investigator. the framing device is that johnny dollar is recounting the expenses incurred over the course of the investigation. it's a good mix of seriousness, pulpyness, and humor for me. i like hearing everyone's dumb voices.

i'll post about other stuff when i remember it.

thanks for reading

How did you get into that? The original podcasts, haha.

Speaking of podcasts, what are people listening to? I really like Judge John Hodgman and One Bad Mother. I listen to the kids podcast Story Pirates all the time too and enjoy it.

We're selling our house. It's stressful but exciting.

I've owned 3 houses and I'm only 32, so I know how stressful selling and buying can be. Good thing the market is really really hot right now, at least it is where I live. You should be able to make some money if you didn't trash the place  ::).

Post by: momitsnowme on April 26, 2018, 10:02:32 AM
We actually put a lot of work into it so I hope it sells easily. The market is hot here too. We should probably be thinking more about buying since that might be harder but the selling is really preoccupying

i started listening to old time radio stuff after i heard a program on a radio station we have out here called WBAI- there's an old dude named 'max schmid' who does a 2 hour show every sunday of all different radio programs.

i think the first thing i heard was either something like suspense (which is just different random 'thriller' or 'mystery' or 'horror' plays) or an episode of jean shepherd's radio show (jean shepherd was this old guy who was popular out here 40 years ago- he's most famous now for being the writer / narrator of the movie 'a christmas story')

it's something that helps me pass the time at my place of employ, and also for like half the months out of the year i usually take long car rides on the weekend (i travel to a drive-in theater about 90 minutes away for most of their screenings)

as far as modern podcasts go, i like my brother my brother and me and all the other mcelroy content; they seem like genuinely nice people who are also super funny.

i actually listen to like a million podcasts so let me just break it down:

comedy:
the best show with tom scharpling - it's 3 hours long, it's super boring, it's the best show ever. the calls between tom and jon wurster are like the funniest thing ever. if you've never heard it, it was originally a radio show but it's basically tom being funny as hell, taking some calls, and hanging out. about once every episode a 'fake caller' calls in and does a really ridiculous routine with tom, and it's always the same guy doing different characters and it's the best
hollywood handbook - this one is weird, it's basically two guys in an improv contest to act the most stupid without blinking. nominally, it's an advice podcast about how to make it in this wild world we call 'showbiz'
the dollop - this one is not actually that funny most of the time but it's not stimulating enough to fit into any other category. it depends on what you find funny. in any case, it's two dudes talking about random stories from american history that are usually ridiculous or otherwise awful. i like the erik prince episode done recently.
chapo trap house - they say really awful dumb shit all the time but i still listen, i'm pretty starved of 'radical' content so i'll take basically anything

good brain podcasts-
citations needed - this one rules, it's two fellows going in-depth on PR bullshit and how very carefully, deliberate narratives are formed in the media. highly recommend, just pick an episode that sounds interesting
you must remember this - 'hollywood' history podcast by a really smart lady. tons of different topics. i recommend the manson series or the one about jane fonda / jean seberg
supporting characters - this one is small and just for film nerds but it's lengthy interviews with important subcultural figures in the 'genre film' scene. i recommend the tim lucas one, but only because i'm already a huge mario bava nerd
projection booth - for film nerds, this is probably the best film criticism podcast i've heard. it's not amazingly intellectual but they go out of their way to secure some really great interviews with people involved in productions

tabletop RPG:
the adventure zone - it's the mcelroy brothers playing board games (originally D&D, later others) with their dad; the first 'season' is something that i've listened to like 5 times (it's like 70+ hours long lol)
neoscum - a comedy / improv shadowrun podcast that is super embarrassing to recommend but i'm way into it. they have improv powers i've never witnessed
glass cannon podcast - fairly serious pathfinder podcast starring a friendly group of dudes, still lighthearted enough to not be a total slog

i also got big into audiobooks. i started listening to a bunch of genre stuff but i've branched out to non-fiction now. i've gotten through william gibson's sprawl trilogy (neuromancer fukken rules y'all), dune, snow crash (cool except for the awful """sex""" scene towards the end), tons of conan the barbarian short stories, etc. i'm finishing up the conquest of bread now.

i'm the podcast queen. i've listened to them all. i can recommend stuff if anyone is looking for anything

i should learn one of the crafts that is mysterious to a lay person, like back massage or clicker training. i'm a total fool, if i hired someone for clicker training on craigslist and they showed up with the damn thing i'd be like "this is pretty legit. here's my billfold" before i even saw them wrangle a dog. huge market

clicker training is just an improvement on positive reinforcement dog training. people will pay you to do it because they hate dogs until they're obedient which is pretty telling about our society.

Here are some podcasts I like a whole lot:
The Boogie Monster with Kyle Kinane and Dave Stone
My Favorite Murder
The Adventure Zone
Cocaine & Rhinestones: The History of Country Music
My Brother, My Brother, and Me
Sawbones
Lady to Lady
Alice Isn't Dead
Within the Wires
Mother May I Sleep with Podcast
Small Town Murder
Crime in Sports
The Thrilling Adventure Hour
The JV Club
MonsterTalk
Lore
Wonderful
Buffering the Vampire Slayer

I liked most of The Black Tapes and Rabbits. I really liked the first couple seasons of TANIS, but now I think I might kind of be hate listening.

I like Welcome to Night Vale quite a bit, but am super behind and am unsure exactly where I left off so I keep thinking about starting again at the beginning, but haven't done it yet.

Non-podcast stuff:

My life has been in a weird, constant state of upheaval this year and it's really stressing me out/making my anxiety and depression real bad because my relative stability was a large part of what was helping me keep it together. So far this year I lost my health insurance in a string of dumb shit that were half my fault/half getting fucked by the company, got semi-secretly married in order to get on Rob's insurance, the building I've lived in for over ten years sold and our rent went up $250 a month as a result, the company I've worked at for almost 8 years got sold and now they've slashed hours, laid people off, done a bunch of really petty and infuriating shit, and I'm basically going to get bumped back down into the call center since their salaried data analysis team is scooping my job out from under me.

So now I'm going to be 31 in less than two weeks and I'm just clueless about what I'm doing and what I want to be doing and how to move forward.

I will never not be frustrated by the dynamic of working for a company to the point where they are so successful they get purchased and then everyone who did the work gets fucked. It's so upsetting. I didn't love the job but I definitely needed it/a stable workplace and this happened to me a few years back. I never really recovered financially and professionally. I love that I can get Medicaid but I've had it cancelled three times because of widescale clerical issues so I just had gaps in my medication and psych visits (happened to a few friends also). Just the bare minimum of getting and staying on your feet is such a goddamn challenge apparently.

I'm in a couple new music project that are about to record that I am very excited about. It feels good to be getting back into the swing of things, even though I'm 29 and sometimes feel silly for being a musician. I play guitar now and I'm extremely reluctant to call myself a guitar player, but I'm eventually going to have to get over it.


I also am in the early stages of potentially buying a house. It means saying goodbye to the house I've been in and running as a venue for over 7 years. I have really become who I am in and because of this house, and the prospect of leaving is sort of freaking me out. On the one hand, it's always been a rental, and therefore always seemed like it has to end at some point. On the other, I always had it in the back of my head that maybe my landlord would sell me this place. Well, it turns out, she would, but the price she wants for it considering the condition it's in is totally unreasonable. That reality is sinking in, and I found a place I'm starting to let myself fall in love with. A few of my housemates and my partner would come with me. Figuring out what the remaining people will do with the house, if anything at all, is weighing heavy on me. I don't want to leave anyone holding the bag on this rental, but I think considering the history and function of the house we can get people to move in. I worry about the house continuing to throw shows after me, even though I also love the idea of something continuing on beyond me. The house has never just been me, but especially in the last few years I have taken on the vast majority of the event running. I want to throw a big goodbye show for myself and the couple other housemates following, even if that seems big-headed. Growing up is strange.


I don't think about pix stuff a ton. I think the death of my own band and a split with a long time friend coinciding with everything revealing it's true shit self around pix creates just one big hole in my heart, but just like how I'm going to learn to move on from my house venue, I learned to carry on and define myself in other ways. Remembering pix stuff might start to happen more as I get back into booking, recalling some of my friends from other places, who knows.

I spent a lot of years feeling shame for loving music, but thankfully I am now aware that I'm a lifer.  Playing music, specifically drums, informs me so much of myself and the world around me.  I am happy to give myself over to it.

Which is a great attitude, and often I feel this way! I get glimpses of feeling like maybe I should be doing something else, but it's certainly not the main thought.

Having this big old house is breathing some life in to me, giving me a bit of non-music related momentum. Though it's going to be a lot of work, and I will assuredly be exhausted, I think it's also going to make me more excited to have music as an outlet.

What a beautiful house. UGH. I was looking at a couple smaller houses with long lots that would definitely need to be fixed up, but that I really wanted to make into a social space (it was already a split-residency). But even in a (relatively) affordable far end of Brooklyn (not the 'cool'/gentrified part of Brooklyn) that means they were about 1.2 million a piece even with the shitty ass falling apart house. My partner and I are seriously considering moving to her hometown, a growing but kinda meh place in MD north of DC because we just can't afford anything here and it's at least kinda cute? I really don't like the idea of owning property or being in this very divided, individual 'my house' situation but I also think we're at a dark place in society. My neighbors don't talk to me even when I try to talk to them (except a couple super old school elderly Brooklynites) and it's very mixed race and not gentrified so it's not even like I'm perceived as an 'outsider'. So kinda like, fuck it? I'll go somewhere else then, get my house, make it open to all the weird trans and gay kids getting kicked out of their parents house, let them play shows, grow food for a mutual aid organization... I guess maybe it's just opening a new door to a different kind of life project.

do you guys wanna try making like a discord server or something? i don't want to cannibalize whatever posts people would be making here but it might lower the barrier to entry for people interacting with each other; if you're not familiar with it, it's kind of like an IRC server type thing but much more usable. there's a mobile app, a website version, or a program that you can download. let me know what you think!

unrelatedly: i just got my prescription for estrogen HRT this morning, like 50 minutes ago. I have to go back a bunch of times over the next few weeks and do more blood testing and shit later, which is standard but pesky, but I get my first E injection directly into my ass on tuesday. I haven't really told anyone besides my partner. I'm pretty excited! It's been something i've been thinking about for a long time, i never thought i'd be able to do it. i don't have too much else going on right now, i'm going through a big hong kong acton movie phase right now and it's really fun. i freaking love anthony wong, yo. hit me up for digital files / recommendations lol. i'm pretty much just waiting for the spring / summer, i want to go back to the drive-in that i volunteer at sometimes and hang out with my buds out there. feel free to hit me up if you're anywhere remotely near PA, it's a fun weekend pretty much guaranteed. i hope you're all doing well

Closed on a house about two weeks ago.  It's literally 100 years old, and a bit of a fixer upper, but it is in a great location for walking and biking to everything.  I hope to fix it up and host some shows there in the future... we'll see. I know a house isn't for everyone, but I feel like I've been running to keep up with life, and this feels like I can dig in and not wonder where I'm going to live every year, if that makes sense.

Thanks Jer, and Rory. (and congrats on the first term of grad school, Jer!)

Yep, Rory, you nailed it.  Both wonderful and scary to have an 100 year old fixer upper.  It's been a rental for decades. In fact, I was renting a room, and the landlord approached me one day and made me the offer... even the price.  All I did was say yes, and then get to work on getting the bank to approve a mortgage.  Everything was included, appliances, random junk, the landlords books, tools, etc... as well as all the problems, lol. 

I inherited a broken lawnmower, and put about $15 into it to get it starting up on the first try. It feels good.  Put another $15 into repairing two leaking faucets.  I'm saving up to do some old attic knob-and-tube electrical, so I can then insulate it in hopes of making it warmer for cheaper.

Also, the house had been on fire at some point in it's past.  The wood they used to repair it looked as old as the original wood it was built with, but the old, charred wood is still there, they just ran other planks along side the charred ones.  I'll have to take a photo.  It's really weird to sign on to being responsible for something that is older than me, and will likely out live me.
Title: Re: just post
Post by: rory on May 23, 2019, 09:45:37 PM
I attempted to have a similar arrangement with the landlord at the house I was at for 7+ years. Ultimately she thought it was worth more than it was, and certainly more than a bank would approve me for. Ended up with a house that could very easily be a lucrative rental, but it's basically half a mile out of the neighborhood considered the student rental area, so the marketing for it was not geared towards investment properties - which really worked out for me. This house sat empty ofr 10 years, with the owner working on his cars in the (heated/drywalled) garage for that duration. A lot of the plumbing was/is happy having sat for that long, but I've worked to learn a decent amount about it. I'm saving up to re-route the water lines in the basement with PEX, because it's honestly only a matter of time before one bursts and ruins the gear of 6 different musicians.

Re-doing the knob-and-tube is a great idea and a hell of a hassle! We are doing some serious attic overhaul as well, and used the opportunity for just that same thing. I have not had all the knob-and-tube switched out in the basement, 2nd floor, and attic. I really lucked out by having a friend who is an electrician who is doing the work at a discounted rate, and working around our strange hectic house, while also giving us some lessons and pointers. I'm honestly pretty afraid of electricity, but my partner is enjoying learning about it.

That fire stuff sounds wild! My house has obvious former water damage, it looks like there was a major roof leak in a section, to the point that they tossed a lot of the floor boards in the attic in that spot. The mold in the rooms below was still find-able when we took the wallpaper down, and those rooms are also carpeted, which I imagine is a coverup. There's a brand new roof, though, and so far not a single leak. I feel like you and I are going to both find strange happenstances we can trace in the walls for years to come.

randomly thought about the board today, just popping in to say hi. i used to post fairly regularly from like 06-09. own a house with my husband in corvallis (between portland and eugene), slinging wood-fired pizzas on a rad vegetable farm, life is generally good! still being silly and drinking cheap beer (although a lot less these days, lol) and going to shows when i can, i'm very grateful for the DIY community in this sleepy college town. glad to see everyone is doin' well!

Hey Peeknuckle!  I remember you posting.  I feel like you regularly posted funny photos of yourself making wild faces in action. Happy to hear life is good!

i don't have a job right now, trying desperately to find one. admittedly, i don't want to work with the general public, i'm a little exhausted by random harassment. so i'm trying to get even min wage 'inside jobs.' it's slow going. it sucks. but i have, for the first time, a tight group of incredibly supportive, non-fair-weather friends, i'm dating a wonderful woman and have a really wonderful sometimes-thing with another woman, trying to stay positive. it's hard, especially when you constantly are getting kinda fucked over or miss out on things by technicalities and fractions and illegal shit (like legit was working on an ADA case with a lawyer). it's hard. but what's the worst that can happen, right? i die? i've been facing that down my whole life and it doesn't scare me anymore and i'm up to spite death as long as i can.

just popping by to say i love you guys and that i wish i had realized sooner that it's meaningful to try and struggle to be happy rather than just writing it off as an impossibility
