I don’t normally listen to podcasts, but on this last bit of travel I tried out a bunch that were suggested to me via Twitter. Here are some reviews:

Quirks and Quarks

This is a great science radio show but I’m not sure it was engaging enough to focus on completely. It put me to sleep several times on the airplane which was nice of it.

Real Time with Bill Maher

I like a lot of Bill Maher’s stuff even though he’s the whitest man in the world. This podcast is just the audio from his HBO TV show, which seemed like itd’d be all right, but the crowd cheers and laughter were so loud compared to the speaking I had to keep dialing the volume up and down to keep it from blowing my ears out. I gave up part way through the first episode. Next time I may run them through a compressor first.

You Look Nice Today

I wasn’t sure I’d like this hyper-literate ultra-nerdy sorta hipster comedy talk-show, but it worked for me and I wish I’d brought more.

The Ongoing History of New Music

I was excited to see this show on iTunes as I love it and looked forward to catching up, but it only feeds one minute previews! What the hell!

s_12272405571116964 Gonna go out on a limb here and say the show last night in Denver effing blewww. It was amazing. I don’t really want to suggest it was legendary but I had a difficult time through security back to Canada and am thinking word might have gotten around.

I also don’t want to characterize a particular Denver sound man as “a douchebag” but I’m not sure how to finish this sentence without doing exactly that.

I will likely blog more about some lessons I learned once my brain unpacks.

It was nice to meet Jeff though even if it was just shouty bar conversation. NICE TO MEET YOU JEFF.

This past Friday was the occasion of my birth. I am now old enough that I wasn’t sure what age I’d be turning. Thanks for all the kind wishes.

I am in “crunch mode” for the Denver show on Thursday. I am also “nervous”. This’ll be only my third solo show but it’ll also be the first one where I’m not doing my own sound.  So maybe that will be good? Maybe I have nothing to worry about?

Very much enjoyed this video for Dropping out of School that Brian Ross just sent me:

Ugh, so busy. I didn’t even blog about Halloween. Here are some shots:

We were kind of busy (and lazy) this year so we didn’t really get up to a lot of the ideas we had. But I got to play with my jigsaw and made this witch and cat:

The resulting shadow was pretty good, though the cat didn’t show up very well:

My costume turned out nicely. This flash photo doesn’t really do it justice:

I’m really not much for scaring kids so what I would do instead of jumping at them or anything was stand completely still. The kids would see me and know something wasn’t quite right and they’d stare and stare. And I’d stare back at them and they’d just be completely unnerved, thinking something was going to happen I guess. And it seems I’m okay with doing that to children as I feel no remorse.

There are some upcoming Brad Sucks shows:

November 7th & 8th: Playing two nights at Kelly’s Welcome in Manotick, ON. Full band.

November 20th: The Bluebird Theater in Denver, Colorado. Solo.

There’s a pretty good possibility I’ll be doing some touring in the new year, so be sure to put yourself down on the map on my live page.
