The Darkest Night Was the Day: Transmission 231, 2015 August 25

September 29, 2015

jealousofshitandshine.jpgAnother weekday, another program: here's something else I did, seemingly long ago. On this night I was clearly getting some stuff out of my system; it felt good at the time, and still does, I daresay. This mixtape ripples with anger, but perhaps you will get a different impression (or, if you share mine, will find it useful at least some of the time).

Diary: lately I've been reading Memoirs of a Geezer by Jah Wobble. I have to admit that I am an unfocused reader these days; I'm unfocused about a lot of things. Something that struck me was one really brief conversation the author had with a friend in which he (re)affirmed his life's purpose. If only it were that easy! I could use that conversation, or that friend, right about now. I have been certain for a while that my "purpose" is not volunteer disc jockeying or any of the behind-the-scenes stuff I do. So all of this is just biding my time. Has if felt that way to you? And biding it for what, I wonder?
