I kind of have a feeling right now, that feeling you get when you walk into an abandoned property and find it not torn apart or defected in by squatters. Yes...it's been about a year and a half since I've done anything here, and I'm looking to clear out all the dust and cobwebs. I know I don't know owe an explanation, but I would like to offer one.
I was building something. Something I thought could reach out further than I ever could here. Something that was a bit sexier, and easier to consume. Something with which I could actually enhance on what I do here the the ping pong of actual conversation, versus my monologues. Something...well, just something better.
My return here all but solidifies that that course of action has run.
In my Denton days, whether you're hearing this for the first time or I'm reminding you, I was a member of a podcast, which I left due to differences of opinion in the creative direction for the future. I'm not trying to dump anything negative on my former colleagues; they had a vision they wanted to pursue that I didn't share, and their vision has prospered onto the actual radio airwaves. I'm happy for them and their success.
I had a different vision. A vision that time and distance from the point of that first podcasts' inception did not diminish. The time came that I felt I should act on it...and so I did.
So that's what I've been doing for the past year and a half, operation a podcast filled with much of the same content that I would be talking about here, with a crew of friends that shared my vision. Since around February though, we haven't been able to coordinate our schedules well enough to make a recording. A four month hiatus on something that I was actually able to hold to a fairly regular schedule feels like a confirmation that the podcast can't maintain itself anymore.
We had a good run. But my podcast was built out of sticks and spit from every free service I could find, and I definitely didn't have the resources to pay my cohosts/buy their time to come out and record...this conclusion was inevitable. This was a free time activity, and when there's no free time to spare, well...I'm beating a dead horse at this point.
What's my conclusion here...what's my point? I'm back. I'll figure out how to link to the podcast so that this massive gap in content can be bridged.
Oh yea, I'm forgetting to tell y'all the name: The NerDFW Podcast. Do you sense a theme in the things that I create?
I'll have some more up this weekend I hope, some actually new content.
...I hope that I'm actually back. I hate having all this...whatever in my head and no outlet for it. Yea, I hope that I'm actually back.
Keep your heads up, your minds sharp, and your hearts open.
