msb-0118 "Apophis"

msb-0118 "Apophis"


Well, here I go again. offering the opportunity, the site and possibly the equipment if they need it, to anyone out there who wants to have their own podcast in German.
"Sprechen Sie Deutsches?

Wurden Sie mögen ein Programm für Sie auf den Erfahrungen von jemand haben, die mit der mehrfachen Sklerose, auf Deutsch?

Leider gibt es nichts für Sie.

Sie müssen sie verursachen.

Dieses ist Ihre Wahrscheinlichkeit dann.

Verbinden Sie MSBPodcast.com und Anfang eins."

(Hopefully some native German speaker will take pity on his ears and spare me the indignity of this translation. :-)

"Et pour les francophones, je vous offre une collaboration, un site, et mème de l'equipment, si necessaire. Envoyez mois un courriel: charles (at) MSBPodcast.com ."

Feedback comes first, so...

I had some from another MSer.

I am of course respecting her confidentiality.

But I would just love to interview her or, better yet, (in your dreams Charles-A.,) get her as a co-host. (And no my wife won't get upset. For Pete's sake, we'd be doing this through Skype and there would be several national and state/provincial borders between us.)

She sounded/read like a real live wire.

It would certainly improve the dynamics of this podcast. (And, no, my wife isn't interested and that's that.)

If I wasn't having so much fun doing this, I'd suspect that boredom might be an issue. (Nah... Never happen. :-)

Feed forward comes next, so...

I'm astonished at how many people are being reached by this podcast. (There is even one from Tehran, Iran. [Now there is a communication problem. I know the alphabet {28 letters in four cursive scripts, with several diacritical marks.}

But, apart from the fact that we share a biology {thank you Sting}, I know almost nothing else.]

Could they use a mike and unfettered access to the MSBPodcast umbrella. Who knows? How about dropping me a line at charles at MSBPodcast.com.)


Well anyway, this new business will place some demands on my time. I'm about to have to do a lot of traveling and some weeks will see me unable to do more post some music.

I have to pay the bills 'round here, (unless some people would be willing to advertise, :-) so I won't be able to put out as many shows or stay up as late, burning the midnight oil (okay the, uh, 01:56 AM oil right now).

This ties into the next segment: Feed Me! I have to keep earning money at a day job because this podcast can't pay any bills ... yet.

Feed Me! come third, so...

Do you have a therapy, product, good or service that is of interest to MSers?

Consider advertising on this podcast.

Reminders on this segment only cost $0.03 per reminder per download of an episode. (A $30CPM targeted at MSers.)

It can/should lead to a full ad, in text, audio or video, which costs $3.00 per download.

That sounds expensive until you do the math and realize that if nobody downloads it it costs you nothing, unlike print, where you often can't even get an ad in to the specialized journals, or radio or TV where you'd just be wasting your money with the 0.0833% MSers rate of return. (That's about six times "below" the level of "statistical noise".)

But MSBPodcast is 100% in your market, and you only pay per download of your material.

No play, no pay.

Reach the MSers who would buy your therapy, product, good or service, with-out having to waste your advertising money on anyone who is "not" interested...

Main topic: "Apophis" ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apep )

I ran across this [ http://www.itwire.com.au/content/view/9748/1066/ ] article in "IT Wire."

Its about, well, quite literally, oblivion. Our own extinction?

To quote the article:
Still, it’s thanks to modern technology that the world’s scientists have been able to scan the sky and look for asteroids that could easily end the world as we know it. Let’s hope this genuine asteroid scare unifies humanity in accelerating spaceflight technologies, not only so we can protect ourselves from cataclysmic asteroids impacts, but colonize the moon, our solar system, our galaxy and beyond as it would seem we were meant to do.

After all, there are so many resources up there that are just waiting for us to use. While we’re in no danger of running out immediately of any of the resources we take for granted, despite the recent oil shocks and rises in commodity prices, our own solar system is a rich treasure trove of all the resources and even living space that we could possibly want for the foreseeable future.

If a possible asteroid impact dramatically speeds up the development of the required technology, turning science fiction into science reality, we’ll all be better off – and who doesn’t want that?
Yes, indeed-e-doo.

We now have something else to worry about: "Getting smacked by a giant piece of rock coming at us at several thousand miles an hour.'

But lets look on the bright side.

We won't get caught with out collective pants down.

We'll know it years in advance.

And the way things work in the gummint, they'll have argued over this until its half-past too late, tyeing it in budgetary red tape and secret committee meetings.

All the while the religious nuts claim its the will of [insert name of deity here], and that only the unbelievers will perish.

Meanwhile the chunk of rock and ices the size of Manhattan, that's got just about everybodys' name on it is just out there, but its getting a little less "out there" every freakin' day.

Let the whole world go to sleep with the same sense of uncertainty we MSerd do, and wake up often with the disappointment we do: "shit we still have it!"

Main topic, part "Deux":

I am about to get busy again at work. (Its not simple being a good project manager.)

I am leaving from my home-base in Noo Joysey, and traveling between Hartford, Connecticut and Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India in the upcoming weeks and months.

You want pressure, a.k.a. Jason Oblivion? I'll give you pressure.

Try doing all this traveling while having MS, when you're permanently and persistently sick, but you still have to be "on" 24/7 because hundreds of people are depending on you around the planet, and the only rest you're getting is in a noisy steel cylinder pretending either its a bus or a bird, and jet lag is an absolute bitch, or sleeping in cheap hotel rooms where they can still reach you on the phone.

I'm no sniveling, molly-coddled, ignorant, little white-boy pussy working at some McJob for damn-near minimum wage.

Your comment on my blog, (and I just cut and pasted. The misspellings, lack of punctuation and grammatical errors are all yours,) leaves me untouched:
"Look you little shit. I was doing a google tonight to see if anyone's talking about the show, and what they're saying, you know gotta get that feed back, and look what I find, you talking shit. Listen bitch for your fucking info I was sick as shit and in the fucking hospital, consider your spot gone. I don't want my world of chaos to inconvenience you anymore than it already has. I look at it like this you must be a way better podcaster than me since your like 90 years older than me and so much more wiser, so I'm gonna download your shit and we'll fucking see you little shit talking fuck. Do us both a favor just take my show off your Itunes, or what ever you use to listen to my shit cast. I'm sure your podcast will provide me with a shit load of content, old man thanks asshole."
Oh yeah, kid, you win the argument.

Nobody's going to take up the gauntlet now.

No way, Jose.

Can't ever debate against someone armed with such fervor.

But its like winning a race in the special Olympics, a.k.a. Jason Oblivion.

In the end, at the finish line, you're still retarded.

It's too bad you have embarked on this profession as you seem to have a very fragile ego, as you've shown in your emails and posts.

You'd never make it past your first "open mike" night as a stand-up comic.

Get over your glass jaw or make sure you youTube your first performance cause I'd love to see the audience rip you a second (or maybe its a third,) ass-hole.

(And I know you'll very probably read this because you're still ego-surfing for comments about "Jason Oblivion" on Google. [But don't try to start any further diatribes because you won't get any reply.])

The next song was selected just for you. Because you really deserve it.
