I just watched the Maron tv show they have up on IFC. Oof. I liked the final 15 seconds of the main episode for the pathos part but the rest of it - oof.
There is no greater fan of the podcasting medium than me nor anyone who has been involved appreciably longer. However, I don't think it's a great hook to hang a TV show off of, based on this and Comic Book Men as data points. In both cases I was a big big fan and charter listener (or close to it) of the podcasts and was predisposed to like the show. In both cases, I couldn't bring myself to do it. I tried 1.5 episodes of CBM and that was enough. I don't have IFC on my cable system so I don't see myself even caring enough to try to acquire this illegally. Oof. 4 years ago
Oh day job. Colleague IMs me asking if I've got some time to work with him. I was away from my desk and got back to him within 13 minutes, by which time he was already booked up and no longer available. Good gravy. 4 years ago
In this episode I start with a song from Tommy Stinson’s new Bash and Pop album; I talk about why the show is so late; I talk about habits and their inertia; I relate a story of losing track of a toolchain; I describe my trip to India; there is some severe illness in my family; I discuss the current handling of my podcast queue and some shows that give me joy.
Here is the direct MP3 download for the Evil Genius Chronicles podcast, April 24 2017

For the first time since Xmas 2012, I am caught up on my comics TBR pile. I actually even read the Django Unchained series which I had bought and then sat on for a year and a half until I got around to seeing the movie first.
The only time this ever happens is when I'm a few weeks out from picking up my books. Otherwise, of course, the pile stays full. It's kind of nice being caught up and knowing when Punkin and I go to Free Comic Book day Saturday after next, I will be reading those books in reasonably short order. 3 years ago
