ROUGH DRAFTS THE PODCAST SHOW #46: KOOL MEDITATION
below are links to find the latest episode:
i care about you, the listener
i have a post for this blog i’ve been working on for weeks now but i’m still not quite done with it. i don’t want to give it away but perhaps to give you a tease, part of it has to do with ariel pink’s bizarro song, ‘kinski assassin,’ and what it makes me think about. well, not just that. relax, it’s a pretty kool and extensive post.
otherwise, i’ve been back in the states for a while now and already had my fair share of ups and downs. i’ve been able to catch up and enjoy alcoholic beverages at bars with friends, both old and new. i’ve stayed in bed all day, sad and terrified for the future. i have spent money carelessly and beaten myself up about it. i have turned 25 and watched ‘boyhood’ for $5.50 and felt like a good person making smart decisions. i have watched ‘boyhood’ again and felt encouraged to be excited for the future. i have played time crisis with my sister. i have spent a day modifying my resume. i’ve been afraid i might not be able to stay in brooklyn after graduating.
but right now, i’m happy. i am writing this on sunday morning at 5am. this is two hours after joel and i finished recording our first 12 hour podcast. it’s pretty much 12 hours of us recording non-stop.
it was a magical experience. i had been wanting to make that happen since before leaving for china and we finally did it. it had been a while since i’d felt completely engaged within the moment. i can’t wait to tell you more about it soon.
but before that, here’s the 3rd part of the shanghai podcast series. it’s easily the weirdest of this four part collection. upon re-listening to it, i realized despite my very limited credentials, this is the first time i lead something of a meditation session.
also, that second picture is explained in this episode. fun fact. it’s the first ever picture i took with this friend in china and first ever photographic evidence of me having friends in china.
so, enjoy and tell your friends about this silly show if you like.
