values


friends,

 

i'm happy to announce that episode 560 should be my last from the road!

 

this week is inspired by a song, the artist steve taylor, and the concept of values clarification. the lines between caricature, propaganda, and our individual responses to satire, parody, and social criticism, fascinate me.

 

this is - steve taylor

this is - lifeboat

this is - the video

 

the songs:

- as it turns out (a fish may love a bird, 2006)

- stare decisis (songs from the kitchen ep, 2009)

- bones (don't even try, 2012)

 

i hope you'll listen.

 

love,

russell

flattery


friends,

 

episode 559 is inspired by the experience of blandishment, generally.

 

specifically, i'm struck by how small moments between strangers can affect us.

 

sincere balance is often hard to find.

 

the songs are:

- easy love (a fish may love a bird, 2006)

- the future (don't even try, 2012)

- roses (lost demo)

 

i hope you'll listen.

 

love,

russell
