Dear Reader, Remember Aileen Wuornos' hair? That's what mine looks like right now. I always thought I kinda looked like her (with more frequent baths) anyway. I'm downing sparkling water and Alka Seltzer. This is my bacchanal. With love, Robyn

I don't know if I'm capable of ANYTHING at this point or ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. I did just go to the grocery store in a city I'm not familiar with just to get Saltines, so I accomplished that. I love Saltines and am 100% more comfortable when I have them at arm's length. I also just put on my sweatpants again because I have two hours to kill. That counts for something. I guess I'm equating "doing something" with being comfortable? I could aim for worse.

In summary, I DON'T have a crush on Jeffrey Dahmer even though I pretty much said I did. I DO have a crush on Rainboy. I AM very depressed right now. I WILL be in San Francisco this weekend. I WILL kick you out of the podcast if you're an awful human being. I DO have a perfectionism issue. I wish things were different, I want to tell you you'll be happy, and I DO love you. Many thanks for listening and I'm sorry for so many things.

Also, shoutout to the person who posted that they actually read these little blurbs I write! Thank you fam.

Today we go back to our self-hatred rating system to see where we're all at these days. I'm a 4.7 out of 10. I explain my love of my high school closet, but I don't go into details just so you can imagine me way more interesting than I actually am. And then, we let Etel Adnan take over.

“Morality is violence. An invisible violence at first. Love is a supreme violence, hidden deep in the darkness of our atoms. When a stream flows into a river, it’s love and it’s violence. When a cloud loses itself in the sky, it’s a marriage." -Etel Adnan

This is a one-off. I said I'll never have a guest on my podcast, but I changed my mind. My dad is my favorite person to have conversations with, and being with him and my mom the past two days made me so happy that I wanted to share a piece of it with you. I hope some of you like listening to us. And there's also ANNE CARSON!

I love you guys,

take it with you

Iphone_trans Listening to podcasts on your mobile devices is extremely convenient -- and it's what makes the podcasting medium so powerful.

You can take your favorite shows and mixes with you anywhere, but to do so requires some quick and simple steps.

Let's walk you through that process together.
step 1:

Click the "Subscribe With iTunes" link in the page's sidebar:


This will require that you have the iTunes software on your computer.

(You can download iTunes here.)
step 2:

Now that you've subscribed to the podcast on iTunes, the feed will display in your "Podcasts" section on the left navigation bar.

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:

Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.


Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!

The beauty of this process is that now, every new episode of your subscribed podcasts will automatically sync to your device every time you plug it in and open iTunes. You can now take your favorite shows with you everywhere you go.
