I talk about being mentioned on Rocketboom; I discuss the “talk radio voice” and why that just turns me off nowadays; I play a prerelease song by Michelle Malone; I talk about feeling emotional and expressing love and learning to put that dude machismo behind you; I talk about meeting Marjane Satrapi; I play a song by Jonathan Coulton; shirts are in; bye.

  1. Contrary to the Marlboro Man and Clint Eastwood, “High Plains Drifter” culture we grew up in-being a macho man is diametrically opposed to being a real, feeling, well-rounded man. My compliments to Mrs. Slusher and all the other people in in your life helping to bring about this transition. The road don’t go away bro-we either walk it, or we don’t.

    I’ve enjoyed all the shows you’ve done; this is the second one I gotta hear again, just to make sure I got it. The other one was the 10/4 episode; the correct term for the lifestyle expressed there is still important.

    Man, so nice to hear a *new* Michelle song! A trip to her website reveals a performance in Vienna VA on 12/1 here:

    I have a date (my lovely wife), will buy tickets online over the weekend, and Nancy and I will prepare ourselves to be the oldest audience members on Dec 1. Report on the experience will follow.

    I hear you on the macho man stuff.

    Just over a year ago, my wife and I started going to a Greek Orthodox Church. Everybody there gives their loved ones a smooch on the cheek, guys and girls alike. It’s way cool.

    It does feel pretty “un-american”, which is just so silly. In europe, some countries more than others, and the middle east area, it’s no big deal.

    This one went way out of the ballpark. Some insecure people insist on calling people names. I’ve heard people try to insinuate this person is gay or that person has some mental illness. It’s not a very mature way to act. Even people who think they are liberal and open minded do it commonly.
