My father died decades ago, gone so long that memory is the only way to interact with him. Music is a big part of those memories, and he was the only member of our family who didn't play an instrument. He still left his musical notes in the form of taste, curiosity, and patience. Hopefully, that is one of the things the world still sees of him through me.

While identifying artists with only one song on my MP3 player a year ago, I noted that some of the tracks qualify as "not safe for work" (NSFW) and set them aside for a follow-up podcast in the future. Now.

This Sunday in 2016 is more than just Mother's Day observed in the United States of America. It's also a day the world recognizes as the end of one of the bloodiest military conflicts in world history. Most of us, though, do not really recognize the date, at least not like we recognize dates at the beginning of that same world war. Perhaps we don't commemorate enough of the right days.
The theme for World Storytelling Day 2016 (March 20th) is Strong Women.
"Part Time (A Neosurrealist Preparing Responses Before an Exit Interview)" combines dream narratives and imagery.
"What The Neighbors Think" relates a story from SWIM (really) that is NSFW (definitely).

Simply Syndicated is the home for many of my favorite podcasts. They have been producing several shows since 2005, and about 4 years ago I made a list of my favorite moments from the first 5 or 6 years. I'm expecting most, if not all, of those original podcasts to be available via Simply Everything in the near future, if they aren't already there.

My Sunday School teacher when I was in high school worked for the local newspaper where he was, among other things, the music critic. A good guy, he wasn't the type to denounce rock 'n' roll as "the devil's music" or anything like that. On the other hand, he did tell me that I would one day grow out of my interest in early Black Sabbath and no longer have any use for their albums. Well, I have since bought the original eight "Ozzy years" albums on CD, so that prediction completely missed the mark. No, I still love many aspects of early Black Sabbath and never hesitate to share that love. I have some friends who have made the most of the phrase, "mix tapes mean 'I love you.'" That came to mind when I stitched together this last (for this year anyway) Halloween tribute on Inappropriate Conversations.
