Motion from the lotion

This was another one of those weeks where I stumbled into a good setlist by accident. Musta been the fact that it fell on the Leap Year, which is the most exalted day of all time. Or something. What the hell is leap year anyway (besides a reminder to vote)? Heres one answer.

Anyhoo, I got a call from a listener telling me to keep up the good work. I will take that as encouragement to keep on keepin' on. I acknowledge that the show has definitely changed over the years. Any fans of the predominantly videogame/soundtrack format have probably noticed a severe deficiency since I took over the board. No one has called to complain though. I'll take that as acceptance.
Since I'm the primary knob twiddler I will keep on doin' what I do.

Until next week, have a remarkable leap year recognition day.

American Strikeout

This is another crazy week. Several papers due next week; one on the War of 1812, one on the link between media and crime and another where I have to apply Marxist socioeconomic theory to a film. I chose American Psycho. The link is rather obvious; so much so that I may get called out for taking the easy route. We'll see.

I get the feeling that the only types of weeks I will be having from now until graduation. I will try my damnedest to bring you a quality show every week. I was going to try something new on this episode but ran out of time, so tune in next week for this potentially career-ending experiment.

The good news this week is that Carl King gave the show a shout out and placed a link to this blog on his friends page. This is exciting news. I don't know if we'll gain any new listeners but I shall try to maintain whatever questionable standards I possess.

Until next week, stay less frantic that I am.
