Yo! There’s not much time left before the holidays are upon us, and we’re probably already passed the safe shipping threshold for ordering things and having them guaranteed to be delivered by Christmas. That means it’s entirely the wrong time for a holiday shopping guide, so it’s a good thing that this is barely a shopping guide, and more of a meditation on giving. There is a gift guide at the bottom, it’s a little non-traditional. The middle bits are about consumerism and death, so maybe skip those if you’re actually looking for a gift guide.
I’m super excited to announce that my record label, Analog Revolution, will be releasing Micahel Cera Palin’s The Loose Ends of Act One on vinyl, shipping in Q2 2024. I’ve been friends with the folks in Michael Cera Palin for longer than any of us would care to admit, they played the grand opening of our makerspace, and I am just incredibly proud of the body of work they have developed, and to have the opportunity to help bring this in to the world.
As part of my quest to make a living producing media, archiving media, and building tools to produce and archive media I’m proud to announce a new show! 研究 戦隊 ポッドキャスト レンジャー or Kenkyuu Sentai Podcast Rangers is a twice monthly podcast featuring myself, my oldest friend, and a rotating cast of supporting anchors, discussing Super Sentai, Power Rangers, and the process of turning one in to the other. The first episode is out now.
Our Monthly/bi-weekly/quarterly/yearly podcast Expedition Sasquatch has just released a new episode! It’s Episode Number 13. We’ve been producing this show since early 2019, and releasing episodes since June of 2019. That’s an average of one episode every four months, although in reality it’s actually 4 episodes in 2019, no episodes in 2020, 3 episodes in 2021, and 6 episodes of 2022. We’re aiming to release an episode every two weeks for the forseeable future. Check it out:
