Hour 2 (2017, Please be kinder)
Written by Agent 47 on January 31, 2017
Did I just copy and paste the summary from hour one, well yes, but that’s because it’s the same show, and really because I NEED to get this posted so that I can post the show from this past Monday tomorrow. I’ll try not to be so lazy on that one.
I should add, as I write this, this show streamed about 8 days ago, and leading off this the second hour I played “I Talk to the Wind” from King Crimson. At the time of this typing the news is 9 hours old. John Wetton frontman of Asia and short time member of King Crimson is dead. Hey Death, just put the scythe down, give it a rest for a while why don’t you.
2017 New year, new show. Well, not really new. The show itself IS changing a little bit. In the most obvious way I am expanding into a 2 hour program. This is the maiden voyage of the new long format Box of Chocolates. There will probably be more rambling from me, for the most part. Although I want to produce and better execute my thoughts, just a little bit, but enough to not have it be a sprawling mess of a dumpster fire where I am tripping over my own ideas, and forgetting what the hell I wanted to say. 2017 This first hour I discuss the bawling infant (of the 900 lb. variety) in the room. Yeah, the election didn’t go as most people I know had planned. Although, normally, that in and of itself is okay. Normally, however nothing about this has been normal to speak of. In my opinion. 2017 Mind you I have been paying attention to the election cycle at the national level for only 27 years now. So I don’t want to get too hyperbolic about this particular go round, but in my scant quarter of a century of paying attention, this tasted all kinds of different. Just odd, and bizarre. At any rate I’ll probably re-visit the subject again later. 2017
