There's also text transcriptions, show notes, and a proper explanation of the term 'kazumpet'.
I hope you enjoy the first episode, and share the link anywhere that might enjoy hearing from a couple of clowns embarassing themselves with a microphone.
Found myself speaking with the parent of a small child I was amusing* at a restaurant:
"Are you an actor?"
"Not exactly. Why do you ask?"
"Well, you're very animated..."
"And yet, you didn't ask if I was a cartoon."
*OK, truth be told, we were amusing each other.
mh, processing, discalculia thoughts
So, when I was a kid, I imagined that all of the arabic numerals had personalities and interpersonal relationships. Key to this was that every pair of numbers that added up to 10 were 'best friends'. While I couldn't recall how much 7+3 was (when it was just math), I did know that 3 and 7 were friends, that none of the other numbers liked 7 very much, so, oh! that means the answer there is 10!
Re-boosting your own posts for 'the morning crew' or 'the night crew' is an acceptable and encouraged practice here. We are largely a community of supportive people who enjoy being given the opportunity to help each other and boost content we may have previously missed.
You should never feel ashamed of promoting yourself, especially as an artist, when it's so difficult to reach people. If anyone doesn't want to see your boosts, they can just scroll past.
Superstition, data collection, metadata
With folklore, folks used to be cautious about what to do with hair and nail clippings. As those could give a witch or sorcerer power over you.
We have this now with our electronic clippings, we give our clippings to social networks and that gives a whole heap of power to them and to the buyers of that data who can then analyse it.
There's an analogy for you. 😏
I love how in Watership Down, the writer made up words for the rabbits to use to talk about things about their environment.
Hrududu: An onomatopoeic term that refers to any motor vehicle. A tractor, car or any motorvehicle.
Tharn: Petrified with fear, i.e. "deer in headlights".
Hrair: A great many; an uncountable number; any number greater than four.
Like a delightful cafe with a built in sneeze guard, the Emperor Norton Coffee Hour returns to the #CircusInPlace video chat!
Join the clowns and their online friends starting at 7pm UTC-5 for a cuppa, and then hang around as we spend the night practicing juggling, handstands, and other circus skills.
Defying gravity can be lonely work. The company is deeply appreciated.
I've been described by reliable sources as a zen fool, benevolent super villain, misanthropic community leader, clown father figure and Impish Cabaret Rasputin.
