    September 27, 2005: I'm having a hard time articulating this blog entry. It's hard, because I've made a decision to not be involved with the Los Angeles Podcasters Group's (LAPG) booth at the Podcast & Portable Media Expo in a month and a half, and the decision is based on a combination of ethical, personal, and purely gut…

  • Hello, It’s Me!

    September 23, 2005: ... I've thought about it for a long long time... Oops, wait, this isn't a Todd Rundgren song, it's a blog post, and long overdue at that! Yeah, it's been a couple of weeks, almost exactly, since I've posted. What's up, Matt? Well, work at the Cursed Day Job (CDJ) mostly, and red-pen work with…

  • Brave Men Done!

    September 3, 2005: It happened on Friday, September 2nd, 2005, at 3:21 PM at a corner table in the Starbucks on Bear Valley Road in Victorville, California. On the overhead sound system, one of two songs was playing -- I'm not sure of the timing. It was either the Old 97s song "Salome," or Marvin Gaye's "Inner City…

  • One More

    August 21, 2005: Yeah, so it's about two minutes to two, been a long day, good day... and I have one more. This is how I do it... no blogs forever, then, when it's really worth it, you might get two, three in the course of twenty four. Maybe sometime soon I'll be more prolific. Now... well. Here…

  • LA Podcasters Meeting

    August 20, 2005: So I met some real live podcasters in the flesh today... some folks whose work I've listened to for the last few months. Don't think they've listened to me (yet) cuz I'm kind of a small fry... but based on my Feedburner stats, that may have changed after today. It was a fun meeting. It's…

    August 1, 2005: I just wanted to say that today, July 31st, 2005, at around 6:50 in the evening, I passed the fifty thousand word mark in Brave Men Run. I've never written anything this long. It's going to be finished soon. I'm happy!

  • Coming Back To Nate

    July 28, 2005: My, that's a provocative title, no? Well, it's nothing like that... it's simply that I'm finally getting back to finishing my novel, Brave Men Run. See, July has been just awful when it came to writing. There was just too much pressure from the Cursed Day Job, too many outside things taking not just my…

  • Favorite Song Ever?

    July 17, 2005: It's the Go-Betweens "Bye Bye Pride." Originally from their "Tallulah" record, it's appeared in various forms (mostly live) on other recordings of theirs -- most recently a semi-acoustic live version on their new disk, "Oceans Apart." I know it won't have the same effect on you, but for me, every time I hear it, my…

  • We Win

    June 29, 2005: All right, folks! Here's a reminder that it pays to speak, to act. Earlier this week, it came to my attention that Nike was using a knock-off of classic, iconic Minor Threat album cover art to promote a skateboarding tour. Dischord Records never gave permission to use, never approved of, and never condoned the Nike…
