Green Glasses Weekly – Episode 3 – Unstable Political Mines

Subscribe to our Podcast!

Hello Hello again good world! We have another brilliant podcast for you to massage your ears with this week. This time around we fiddled with the format a little, increased the bitrate and stereo-ized the whole production so it will be like an orgasm for your mind!

If you want a summary of what you will be hearing check out the song selections below. We also talked a bit about an epic independent game called Minecraft that has been rocking our collective world lately as well as some serious government-shit that has been pissing us off. We allowed you fine folks to comment on our question of the week and even went so far as to read your responses on the show, so keep an eye out for that.

Question of the Week:
With all of the crazy budget cuts going on over in Wisconsin these days and similar budget cuts being proposed by Michigan’s own Governor Synder, how do you feel about education funds dropping and teachers salaries being cut? Is sacrificing the schools worth balancing the budget?

Happy New Year

So, I think I am going to only post in this journal from now on. The only people I really care to read my journal read this one and in the end it was the first journal I ever started. So I suppose it is the one I should keep. (Even if I did abandon it for two years in favor of greatestjournal.)

Anyway, it is a new year, ain’t that exciting?

I still have very limited acsess to the internet these days which has lately started to bother me more and more. I feel very disconnected from the world when the only news I really get is from magazines (local TV news is pretty much useless.)

Today I am job hunting, I am going to hit every fast food and retail store in Charlotte and, if gas permits me, do the same in Potterville.

Right now I am at the public library checking on my email and making sure I have all of the right phone numbers for all of my previous places of work.

I really hope something turns out this time, as I really need a job pretty badly. I have been broke for quite some time now and it is the major suck sauce. To the extreme.

So, some of you might wonder what I have been up to in my jobless days. That is a good question.

I have been doing a lot of writing lately, scripts, stories and music. It has been mucho fun for sure.

I am planning on having my first CD released sometime in the coming few months. Depending how much I can focus on finishing the tracks I have and getting a few more under my belt it could be out anytime between March and July. So far I have 11 almost complete tracks and I am aiming for a number between 16 and 20 (not for any particular reason, I just want to have a lot of variety.)

Otherwise, life is pretty boring. I don’t really get out of the house much on account of my lack of income and I live the life of a shut-in. But I do prefer solitude most of the time so it is not all that bad. The only major downside to living out in the middle of nowhere is the lack of all of the comforts I grew up loving. Delivery food, Internet, Cable, Busses. All things that I took for granted when I lived in Lansing, but now that I am at a place where none of those gone, they are dearly missed.

I don’t really know where I am going with this post, I am just kind of in a rambling mood today I suppose.

New Years was pretty fun. Drew man came out and we had a Video game/Evil Dead Marathon session. It was pretty supreme. Later in the night on New Years Eve Kim and her friend Matt came out. It was nice to see Kim but Matt was more or less a drunken asshole. His presence I could have done without.

But yeah, that is all for now, I need to be off again.

Peace out Home-grillins…
