“When the mind is exhausted of images, it invents its own.” -Gary Snyder

Tonight I talk (again) about the ample chest of my grandma and what that meant to me when we hugged. After that, I accidentally talk shit about people who have muscles. And then I read a couple of very short poems & end the podcast more satisfied with life than I've ever sounded in the history of my time on the planet. It was kinda strange. But really good. And I'm back to normal already, so I'm really glad I got to spend that minute with you.

Lots of love to you all as this year approaches a full dissolve. While the 2017 You melts away, I wish you a 2018 brighter and stronger than you could have imagined. We're all in this together.

I will be feet from John Goodman tomorrow. My energy level is low. I once went to the proctologist. I'm vulnerable and I like that. The horse knows that his owner is a torturer. Watch your back.

Today, Thanksgiving, I finally tell you my Christian Bale fight story. It's too bad I did a terrible job of telling it. Whether you're sweating in the kitchen, hiding resentments or just being forced to hug a weird cousin, spend a little time with me. Go outside and hide for a while. Take some breaths. Remember it'll all be over soon. And hey, if you're one of those Americans that just loves the Holidays and is having a blast with your family, GOOD FOR YOU! Keep it up. Sorry for my negativity/reality. Keep coming back. I love you too.

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.

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.
