This was recorded on August 17, 2019, just a few weeks ago. Jackson’s Corner is a local restaurant about half a mile from my house. Zeke and I decided to make a morning sojourn of it, to test out some … well, re-discovered equipment. I’m very happy with the results.
I forgot I was recording, and on the way home, Menissa and I get into a conversation with Zeke. It’s all in fun, we know he doesn’t really talk. But … well, it’s fun. I almost edited it out, but hey, after seeing Frozen, I feel I have license to share my Zeke conversations. So there ya go.
Enjoy the episode, and feel free to send comments to either the Facebook page, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Oh, almost forgot the link. Kind of important, that.
Little darlin’s, it’s been a long, cold, lonely winter! But now, I see the smiles returning to the faces, because we have brand-new podcasts!
This is the first of what will be many new podcasts to come. Blind Geek Adventures is back in business, baby!!!!
So let’s go back in the Troup Time Machine to sometime in May of 2015. This was recorded, and left on my desktop to be put on the feed … and never did get put on the feed. I wish I had some reason as to why, but alas, I don’t. There are several upcoming installments which fit that description. So for a while, the old shall be mixed with the new. My best suggestion is just enjoy the content, and don’t think too much about it.
So. 2015. Four years ago. Life hasn’t changed too much. Menissa and I are still roomies, and we still live in the same place. Haven’t been back to another one of these markets, but I expect that will change this year.
Grab your headphones (DO NOT LISTEN TO THIS WHILE DRIVING!!!), sit back, or get on your treadmill, whichever is your preference … relax, and enjoy.
Bend Saturday Street Market
Holy jeez, it’s been a while! Yes, this podcast still exists. Yes, I plan on making more frequent contributions to it. I know, I did say in the beginning that this podcast would be irregular, but never in my wildest dreams did I think there’d ever be over a year between updates!!!!
Last Friday, I had my first (mostly) unassisted cooking experience. I decided to post it, as it certainly did qualify as a BlindGeek adventure. It’s a long ‘un, so strap yourself into something comfortable, don your headphones of choice, and give it a listen. I think you’ll find you laugh a lot. (Not at the cooking, I hope.) I know we who were there certainly did.
Here’s the episode.
DISCLAIMER: Language gets, shall we say, colorful at times in this particular podcast. Also, due to the nature of in-ear binaural miss, when we are finally enjoying the fruits of my labor, it’s … well … quite obvious that I am enjoying the fruits of my labor. Particularly the crispy bacon. If this offends or grosses you out, just know that everything turned out well and was well-received, so when we start to eat, you can feel free to move on to your next listen.
And please feel free to send comments to the Blind Geek Adventures Facebook page.
It’s great to be back!
Taking another bit of inspiration from the springboard for my love of podcasts and podcasting that was/is Blind Cool Tech, I give you this, a virtual sound-seeing tour of my new home.
And in the words of Forrest Gump…
…that’s all I have to say about that.
We’re going back to March of this year. This was one of my first walks in my new neighborhood. Zeke and I are accompanied by our friend Menissa, and we go forth to seek adventure and lunch at a restaurant called Superburrito. It’s a longer podcast than usual, because I figured I’d let you all discover this place as I did. It’s a chain, so there may be one in your area as well. I encourage you to check it out. Despite its title, the tacos are the real supers in town.
So don your audio-headgear of choice, download…
Wow, has it been a long time! Over a year! Not an intentional break, I assure you, and not something I plan on repeating. We’ll get into why the break happened in a future podcast, during a walk. And when I say future, I mean a couple weeks at most, not a couple months.
Anyway, assuming we still have any listeners left, thanks for sticking around, and welcome back!
On September 19th, I was one of many people who were out en masse in the wee small hours of the morning, in order to obtain the much-anticipated iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus. Zeke and I went unaccompanied, so I decided to record the adventure. Unlike most of these podcasts, this one was heavily edited for time. As it stands, it’s just over 90 minutes. In its full glory, it would’ve been about 160 minutes. Trust me, it’s better this way.
So grab a beverage, grab your headphones, download and enjoy.
