Valentines Day / Eternal Springs
Quick Episode recorded during a Valentine’s Day Blackout. Just saw Adam Sandler’s Palm Springs (Hulu) and it rivals my Valentine’s Day fav. The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (Netflix). Both are genre-bending mind trip romances and I found similarities in marketing and contrasts in their structure and scenarios. I recommend both!

Ep. 31: A Coinkydink in the Matrix
H/T to This American Life, their recent No Coincidence, No Story! episode had me wondering about a significant experience that I can’t explain away as JUST a coincidence. I also by chance met someone who knew a brother I didn’t know about, which led me to find other siblings who knew of me. I keep seeing my birthday everywhere is my most engaged post, when lets me know it happens a lot. Do you believe in the Simulation Theory? Peek into the rabbit hole! But what does it all mean? I have a theory. Listen up!

Ep 28: Watchmen’s Tulsa Massacre in Historical Context
HBO’s Watchmen premiered on Sunday. If you’re not familiar, it is a series that is set decades after the DC Comics graphic novel of the same name that ran as 12 issue maxi series from 1986. The setting was an alternate U.S. in 1985 centered around a costumed crime fighter murder mystery. The series was groundbreaking and genre changing with political commentary and adult themes. In 1998 it won the Hugo Award, that annually highlights the best in science fiction. Many fans either didn’t know about the massacre and many felt the plot was too political. I’m not going to address the other elements of the show but wanted to discuss the Tulsa Massacre and other events concerning white supremacist violence that were widespread events in American History that we may not be aware of. Topics referenced: Red Summer The Tulsa Massacre The Wilmington MassacreThe Rosewood MassacreAlfred Moore Waddell Winston Salem’s Confederate Monument Removed Mass Racial Violence in the United States Feel free to add corrections or additions in the comments.

#26: Bird Boxing
It’s been a minute since I’ve posted to the podcast but podcasting is WAY easier than vlogging, so I wanted to get one final episode in this year! I will share my thoughts on the Bird Box craze. The Netflix show has become the event of the holiday. Opinions, complaints and hidden meanings. You know you want to watch. Edit that I couldn’t fix without it sounding chopped should be, “They want you to see the world the way they see the world.” Enjoy!
