#32: A Year of Podcasting

It’s been one year since I posted my first episode of this podcast! A huge thank you for those of you who have been listening for this long! I talk about the future of this podcast, new equipment, and the redevelopment into Complicated Noise. I’m also developing a system to reward those of you who link to me, leave feedback, etc. I also chat about what’s happening lately and finally getting a new car.

TIPped Off

It’s been one year of The Idiologic Podcast! Can you believe it? Instead of throwing a huge party and inviting all the friends I don’t have here and making a huge speech, I’m just going to say a huge thank you to all of you who have popped in every so often to hear about what’s happening in my life. I know sometimes it’s really not all that exciting. I’ve said it a dozen times: I don’t expect that to be what I’m remembered for after I die anyway.

But, there is one thing I can tell you is that a name change is coming because well, I was never that impressed with the name of my podcast. It doesn’t really make much sense. I am not even really sure what an Idiologic is. I don’t expect anybody else does either because it’s pretty much misspelled anyway.

NOT the cover… even I know it’s ugly.

I’ve been in the process of renaming my podcast to Complicated Noise. It won’t be really changed much as far as content goes, but I hope that it gets better, especially at the end of the year. I’m looking forward to keeping the project going and to make it better. I’m pretty excited to get back to tthe USA and start recording again.

That’s why I’ve been really quiet lately (that and work has been keeping me busy). When things are working how they are supposed to, I will share it with you here.

I’ll talk more about this in my next podcast episode. 🙂

#31: USA-Bound (in Nov)

So, I’ve booked my trip back to the USA for about 10 weeks starting in November. I talk about my upcoming trip and my anxiety/stress levels with work and the crappy stuff I order from Wish.com. (This might seem like one of my ‘forced’ episodes because, well, it was. If I put it off, it was likely that I would get lazier and lazier.) I’m here though and that’s something, right?

Wish Trash

It feels like every time I come here to type anything, it’s apologising because I hardly show my face. I’m not apologising this time. Someone told me that I do that way too much and it’s a habit that I need to break. I said I would try to chill out with the perpetual sorry cycle.

Anyway, I’ve been a bit busy with work stuff. I’ve realised that I’m going to lose about 5 paycheques at the end of the year, so I thought maybe it will be smarter for me to work and save while I am able to. Right? Right. That’s the responsible and adult thing to do, I guess. I don’t want to be a burden at the end of the year for my family OR my partner.

I guess this is stuff I’m going to talk about in the next podcast episode. I bought a microphone but I got it from Wish, so it’s not working with my Mac and won’t work with my phone without the little adapter. It’ll work with my iPhone SE (possibly–haven’t tried). That’s if it works. I’m sure I could open the microphone up and it’ll probably be hollow. When will I learn that everything from Wish is a gamble or complete shit? (OK, if cheap and crappy is what they do. I know that.)

Oh, I did get a really bright digital clock from there… that’s not too bad but it lights my bedroom up at night (on the lowest brightness setting, even).

I’m rambling. I hope you guys are doing well! Catch you soon!
