Episode 259 - Teasing Out The Possible With Small Gestures


It’s snowed again, though it rained some this week and there has been some melting.

This thing in New Zealand makes me angry as hell. I’ll do my best not to get angry on the podcast.

I have a theory., the provincial conservatives are bullies who never grew up. That’s the leadership, the hangers on, they’re like the kids who wanted to be cool, so they hung out with bullies and said ‘what are we doing next?!!!’

Isabelle has been doing so much cool stuff with her project, she talks a lot about it in the episode.

Episode 258 - Dret Medium


Looks like it is getting somewhat nice out. Quite sunny today and not too cold. Of course, there is a damned ‘special weather statement’ about impending snow and ice pellets, so we have that going for us.

Isabelle’s art project has begun. She’s painting podcasters. Pretty cool.


Everything is always going through the internet outrage machine. Then people are always angry. We don’t think that’s healthy, take that from me, who used to always be angry….

Like, how do people have the energy to keep up the anger. There are times when you should laugh and such.

Isabelle has been thinking about how she defines herself. I like that.

She interviewed an artist colleague the other day, which is cool. It will show up in the That’s Not Art feed.

We were supposed to be interviewed by Mark Blevis today, but, circumstances beyond his control changed that.

Episode 257 - Gumballs and MSG


Seems pretty ok out right now, about -8C or so.

Jon is joining us today, and probably will a lot in the next while. He decided that he wants to come. Fine by us. I like the company while shopping as well.

Oh man did we have a storm. Like, it was crazy. To top it off, Mis, the virtual Yooper was to fly in Sunday, no dice. It’s almost surprising that he made it in for the Monday.

OK, I wrote all of that before we went, and damned backpack studio crashed. However, we had other errands to run so it worked out.

Isabelle is doing an art project based on pictures of podcasters podcasting, so send yours!

Isabelle went to a pow wow this afternoon!

Isabelle is on her way to Halifax in about a month to see her friend’s MFA final show. Pretty niiiiiiiice.

Oh turns out Jon couldn’t be in this one, he was originally, but yeah, it crashed.
