Greatness in Me, You Can’t Make Me Feel Less: Transmission 489, 2019 October 16

January 30, 2020

portuguese-man-of-war.jpg"This is surely not rock bottom," my notes read (even my notes are pretentious), "but felt like cheating somehow, and also a program with an old agenda." Well, I did return to some very recent spins, trying to--what? correct mistakes? erase moral debts? Listening back the agenda doesn't seem that old, but I'm definitely in no position to assess that. I think the big mistake of the summer was that I tried living in the moment, but for reasons beyond my control (at least that's what I'm telling myself!) "the moment" was a kind of terrible I wasn't prepared for.

But who(m)(st) are we kidding? I make mistakes every summer.

Since this program was broadcast, 106 days ago now, I've gone on the air 19 times. I'm currently editing a sound file from 37 days ago--6 shows ago.

(One of the problems with the "chronicling and specifying my slothfulness" is that the Wednesdays keep coming, you see, and so do the radio appearances. Also, I've not been mentioning my listening habits, mostly at the gym--I just finished listening to a transmission from 71 days ago. So that's four different times I'm inhabiting at once--the past I'm trying to write about, the past I'm listening to, the past I'm editing (!), and the present I'm trying to stay afloat in. How is your existence going, friend?)

The current churn is bringing to mind some existential questions about this whole radio thing. I don't know at the moment why I do it but I know I have to. And it's not even a job! There's not even a Patreon associated with this thing (I'm either too busy or too lazy to get that together).

Will it feel better if my "four temporal planes" collapse into one? Will the questions disappear, or maybe even be answered? Stay tuned to this gripping series.
