Rant: Force of Habit

rant force of habit

In The Incredibles, as Syndrome is about the vanquish Mr. I, the fan-gone-bad pauses to explain his actions. As he does so, our hero counter-attacks. “You caught me monologuing!” Syndrome chides himself. And it’s true: monologues place their creator in a particularly vulnerable spot. If he or she can’t sustain the listener’s interest, there’s no one– absolutely no one— else to blame. And like the shock and awe-meisters who attacked Iraq, brother, I know what it’s like to bomb. Still, in cyberspace no one sells ice cream. Ba-doom-boom. But seriously folks, I’ll get that damn headset Monday, and resume podcasting with one of our regular cast of characters. And I’ll start phoning newsmakers to get the inside dope on the dopey things going down in Motown, and elsewhere. Meanwhile, an experiment, if you will. If you won’t, I hear you. Er, feel you. Um… understand.

    Wow. The podcast audio quality is so much better. Robert now sounds taller, and probably has a beard.

    I detected hints of scotch and pipe tobacco.

    I like when they type in the background and it sounds like they are drawing on a bong!
