RnR :: Big Holes & Broken Farts

Playlist for
Tuesday, March 27, 2012  
This was the second show for Rock N Roll Armageddon with Eggs and Noodles....Pad Thai.

Big Holes and Broken Farts......This title comes from a combination of three elements:
- Eggs shoved a big piece of metal in her ear to stretch it out. 
- We were both going through horribly painful breakups with men we believe to be our one true love in life. 
- Eggs was really gassy that day.
I cry so much. My heart is truly broken.

and water will spring from my face

I took a gamble and put my heart on the table.

I lost.

Love hurts. Too much.

I don't remember feeling this desperately heartbroken and sad - ever. I thought I loved before, but I cannot remember ever feeling the way I do now; the way I have felt for months. This must be the first time I've experienced real, true love. And it blows my mind how intense the feelings are; I can't believe that not one person has ever died from a broken heart. It is physically painful.

I've always been annoyed with love/breakup songs/movies, but that was before I could identify with the feeling. I've been prepping for Rock N Roll Armageddon by listening to nonstop music and writing down songs that I might want to play on the air. Two pages of notes later, I notice the heartbreak theme.

I get it now.

Woe is You and Me

oh how bad its been
and how bad it will be
oh how thin things must seem
it's hard for me to say
but one day you'll see me break
and water
will spring from my face
crying how high must we rise
to build a memorial to tall to fall
because it is the ground

oh how bad it's been
and how bad it will be
oh how thin things must seem

i pet every dog i see
i say hello to every cat i meet
yet still i feel incomplete
but i guess that's the way it goes
and there's no reason to know
why no one will save you
when you jump off a boat

oh how bad it's been
and how bad it will be
woe is you and me

then the man sitting next to me
bought me a drink
said excuse me but i think
that you need this more than me
i said thank you sir
i surely do
and how was your voyage
and how 'bout you
he said

oh how bad it's been
and how bad it will be
woe is you and me.

Why am I doing this? I completely forgot.

I miss the good old days of my blog, back when I used to actually write. Maybe now would be a good time to follow the format of one of those lazy sitcom episodes where all the characters gather together and use flashbacks to have a big long "remember when" conversation.

Remember when I moved to Springfield and that random dude came in my bedroom?

Remember when my neighbor watched a lot of porn (and I was, apparently, watching him watch porn. I just realized that).

You not only watched him watch porn, you tried to analyze and understand the logistics of it all, "...I mean, have you ever tried to rub your belly in a circle with one hand, while patting your head with the other?..."
Anyway, do you remember when my plumbing was messed up for eight days?

Of course I remember! ....we totally missed Thanksgiving because of it. And Thelma was a crazy lady. Remember that time she yelled at me?

How could I forget? You wouldn't shut up about it for weeks.

---I digress---

I could write more blog posts about the stuff I'm doing, but I seem to be busy trying to find my direction and missing opportunities to write about my experiences along the way. Since my last piss-poor blog post I've hung out in St. Louis, visited family in Bowling Green, KY, started my first batch of Kombucha and lots more. I'm taking photos, but not writing any details about my experiences.

Something cool that happened yesterday: Jodi invited me to DJ with her for a couple hours every Tuesday... Rock n Roll Armageddon. I don't have facebook, but the show has a tiny one. Go over there and like it or whatever you Facebookians do.

So I went yesterday to WQNA and sucked at being a DJ. I was completely unprepared and totally afraid of speaking - the complete opposite of my normally rambling self.

Gearing up for Rock n Roll Armageddon!! 4:30-6 on 88.3!

I see how this works. I show up to the radio station on Tuesdays around 4 and I get to play music I like and talk on the air and have fun with Jodi. I know what to expect so I am preparing now for the show next week....by listening to Nobunny radio on last.fm and writing down songs I like so I have an idea of what to play instead of blowing dumb and having absolutely no recollection of even one song I like and would be fun to listen to.

I was worried about my not having any experience but Jodi assured me it was no big deal as she desperately needed a sidekick. When I arrived at the station I met the station manager, Deb Antoine, who said WQNA is in danger of going away due to non-interest; kids just aren't interested in radio. I think people, in general, might be more interested if they knew they had a platform for communication that supersedes the internet. Hmmmm. I wonder if there's a way I can help spread the word? Hmmmm. I need to think about this, but it'll have to wait. I better get back to work.

RnR :: Welcome Noodles!!!

20 March 2012

This was my very first show. I never imagined myself to be a DJ. I have a horrible voice, mumble a lot, speak monotone: boring, if you will.

One night I had dinner with Jodi, Eggs, as she's known on the show, and I asked her if I could come see the studio because I'd never been inside of a radio station before. She said the guy she'd been hosting the show with (Lee, aka Steak) for the last few years had moved away. She asked if I would be her side kick. I said yes. 

And this was my first show. I said nothing. I was in shock. It was weird. 

Then I went home and realized, "Hm. We get to talk about stuff and play music. I see how this works."

It's fun. 

I'm lucky.
