When Is The Johnny Whitetrash Show Coming Back?

Hello from The Canadian Desert, where I am sitting in a recliner waiting for the caffeine and alpha brain to kick in. It has been less than twelve hours since I deleted my Facebook account, and my back up Facebook account. I feel better already…

I am typing this on a laptop that is actually on my lap. Maybe normal people do this shit all the time, but for me the laptop never sits on my lap. The heat from the bottom of the Macbook makes my balls sweat uncontrollably.

I tried to record a podcast the other day, but the medicine kicked in too quickly and I fell apart about fifteen minutes in. There were also technical difficulties, OBS kept dropping frames. I think the problem was using the MacBook to stream via wifi vs the desktop with a hardwired connection and which server I chose to bounce Restream off of. You would think the closest server would be the best choice, but what the fuck do I know? I’m pretty sure I can fix this for next time, but The Johnny Whitetrash Show isn’t going to ramp all the way back up until early September. By then I should know what my life off the internet looks like and how to work around it. That’s the real challenge in life isn’t it? To balance the things you have to do vs the things you want to do.

If I haven’t mentioned it yet, I got laid off from my day job. This doesn’t mean I get to sit at home and collect government money and play video games all day while eating Nacho Cheese Doritos and drinking Mountain Dew Code Red. It means I’m getting relocated to a different department. And so much for that right now…

Getting back to the podcast, I am going to release the failed recording in the main feed. I just have to record an open and close for it. Because folks, that’s how I want things to be in the future. A live raw recording session streamed to as many services as makes sense and then a minimally edited product with an open and closing bit added uploaded to the main feed. So far the main feed means YouTube, Vidme, and the RSS feeds that go to Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Stitcher, etc. I guess you can include Soundcloud for now, but I will be working to pull my stuff off of there. I don’t trust that the site will last, and it really is a useless expense at this point.

I have Milo’s interview with James Damore on as background noise. I originally started listening to Milo because I disagreed with a lot of what he said, and I think it’s important to listen to people you disagree with. I still actively try to destroy my own echo chamber as you can probably tell if you look at who I follow on Twitter. The weird thing that happened is Milo started making sense and the people who try to ban him stopped. I tried to address this in the failed recording — which is what the episode might be titled. I had one idea when I started recording, but like I mentioned, the medicine kicked in too soon and it really became a mess. So the current plan is to record an in depth opening tonight and release the podcast tomorrow. And so much for that right now…

I spent yesterday afternoon playing Sonic Mania. I think I might do a proper review like post after I’ve beaten it. If I beat it. Confession time, I never did beat Sonic The Hedgehog 2. Don’t judge me. I never beat Super Mario Bros. either. My princess was in a different castle. I also watched Summerslam and Game Of Thrones. I think I’ll save my opinions about those for a podcast. And fuck it all for right now…

I don’t feel like typing anymore.
