It's been a minute but rather than wait for this feed to die like an Elon Musk platform investment I decided to go ahead and make an episode. Sorry, not sorry? Topics today include: Catching COVID (finally), Mastodon is stupid unless we're talking about the band, Instagram e-commerce addiction, and a whole lot more.

Positivity is difficult to find unless you're at the 2022 Portland Blues Festival. Think about that for a moment. We've reached a place where the effing BLUES are the most positive thing going on in the lives of the average Portlander. That's sort of sad, is it not?

A post-Easter, rainy day podcast for my 16 Twitter friends, er, followers. Topics include: eBike regrets, a cardboard box full of dinner, the evils of candy and Russell Wilson, and buying miniaturized versions of almost anything.

Plague, racism, and now war...and nary a single shred of purposeful art or music to be found. What's wrong with this place?

On the 10th Anniversary of becoming responsible, a trip to Costco causes some self-reflection. I'm kidding. I saw a billboard and it irked me, so I did some digging and laughed at how stupid people are.

In which our hero (me) laments the utter lack of protest music in a time when we need it most - and when the only music that sells appears to be old music. But wait! There is one among the musical masses who dares stand up to oppression, whose voice will be heard whether it makes him unpopular or not! His name: Eric Clapton, guitarist with holes in his brain large enough to accommodate your fist.

Ah, the holidays. That ever-so-wonderful time of the year for burning conservative trees, insulting an entire country or two, enjoying the end of another entertaining sports season, and playing an unhealthy amount of video games.

Consider for a moment the absurdity of defining someone by their age, their race, their gender, or where they’re from. Alternately, consider the ridiculousness of describing something by the most obvious trait you could possibly think of and then feeling proud of yourself for doing so. Welcome to modern media, and I’ve had about enough.

    The Piketon Massacre

    The most notorious mass murder in Ohio’s history happened on the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Pike County. Four crime scenes, thirty-two gunshot wounds, eight members of the Rhoden family left dead in their homes. Two years later a local family of four, the Wagners, are arrested and charged with the crimes. As the Wagners await four back-to-back capital murder trials, the KT Studios team revisits Pike County to examine: crime-scene forensics, upcoming legal proceedings, and the ties that bind the victims and the accused. As events unfold and new crimes are uncovered, what will it mean for all involved? What will it mean for Pike County?
