As fickle as the breeze

Monday, December 5th, 2005

While outside last night, I noticed the wind blowing in the trees. I have a script that calls for wind sounds. I went inside to retrieve my recording equipment. By the time I was ready to record, the wind was gone like—The Wind. Perhaps it would come back. I had about 45 minutes of recording time available so I just started recording not much at all and went back inside. When I came out to shut it off, I decided to record someone throwing themselves on the ground to plead with a hooded phantom. Maybe there's something useful on the recording, maybe not.

ADD Cast Appearance

Sunday, December 4th, 2005

I just got back from recording ADD Cast #8 with Paul Fischer & Martha Holloway at ADD Cast. Topics included happy monks, pop filter poems, and the new Podioplay I'm producing. I also talk a bit about Jonathan Coultan & John Hodgman's DC show on Friday night (2005-12-02).
