Lying Media Bastards

July 27, 2007


Hey folks.

I’ve been seriously lacking in both writing and radio shows on the site lately. And I just realized that I don’t think I ever warned y’all that that was going to happen. Things have been really unsettled for me in the past few months. Long story short, I’m working two part-time jobs, temping for another organization that could probably lead to part- or full-time employment, and will be starting an online graduate school program in about a month. So I’m juggling a lot more stuff than usual, will be juggling even more shortly, and I don’t know that I can set any of those balls down. Unfortunately for my radio show, a lot of the temping schedule is last minute, keeps falling on Thursday afternoons, and I can’t really say no to much of it, at least not for a while.

And on a much more frivolous note, this past month has hit most of my geekly obsessive buttons as well: Harry Potter movie, Harry Potter book, new Guitar Hero game, Comic Con this weekend, and then I’m getting a new laptop for school… Very distracting. I’m not proud.

Frankly, what I need at this point is a lot more discipline and organization, which are not exactly my strong points. Cheesy as it is, I keep thinking back to the opening quote of a Jet Li movie which says “Mastering others is strength. Mastering yourself makes you fearless,” which I do find a bit inspiring. I need to work towards that (the second part, anyway).

So I’ll try to manage my time better, post here more often, and piece together some quality radio shows when I can. I probably won’t be doing the live Thursday afternoon radio shows very often, but as 99% of you listened to the podcasts anyway, that’s not too much hardship. With any luck, I’ll manage to share enough screeching, knowledge, adrenaline, wit, rhythm, analysis, and adjectives to keep your disappointment at bay.

  2. I just found your website via ACME. Wow, great job with your website!! And I live in San Diego too. Nice to know another local cares about media reform. I was thinking of starting an AMCE group, and now I’d love to find out what all else you’re up to. I’m going to India for a month, so maybe we can talk when I get back after Labor Day.
