Apologizing Is Terrifying: Transmission 479, 2019 August 14

Ariwo_-_Quasi_2.jpg"It hasn't been so bad, has it?" I ask toward the end of the program. "Yes and no" is probably the most appropriate answer. As objectively as I can, I'll try to suggest that the first 70 minutes or so of this broadcast are pretty non-catastrophic. Even so, listening back, I feel like I am just forcing my new agenda. As usual, the music is decent, but.

"Magic's Message" is just a bad track, toxic in its masculinity and its free-enterprise bootstrapping. I shouldn't have played it, but for some reason I thought it worked as a segue. So much for that organizing concept. Naturally the show fell apart after that. Fortunately it's a brief unraveling.

This transmission is better than the previous couple of outings, but I must confess that it's one of a few false dawns before things really improve (October, I think? sorry). I had to be very angry on this night because things had really come apart at work and I knew that I had to make a change. (I did, and it feels great!) Also, the Catharsis Family Circus was moving, and in this Critical End Time I was losing my noodle. Another hiatus was around the corner, though I didn't know it yet. Maybe it was a mental health break?
