Ninja Car Protector

jam

Good morning! This morning as I was rolling into work and decided to record my second podcast this week (https://scottlatta.podbean.com/e/sep-20-2018-60/). The main focus of the podcast was me addressing the horrendous traffic that we have been experiencing here lately in the St Louis area. My morning and evening commutes on a ‘normal’ day will usually take about 35 minutes each (roughly guestimating an average). But this week has been traffic ghastly. Auto accidents and stalled cars have been raining from the heavens it seems…without there actually being any physical rain to blame. Adding together my morning commute and evening commute from yesterday, my total drive time was in excess of three hours – easily more than doubling the norm for those combined drive times.

Cleveland Indians vs the AL Playoff Contenders

Cleveland_Indians_logo.svg_

Hello! I am an avid follower of my Cleveland Indians, sometimes much to my chagrin. I usually do a piece once or twice per season to ‘break down’ my team’s performance and spotlight where I see concerns heading into the Hunt for October Gold. Many, many years ago I swore a personal oath that I would get a tattoo to commemorate if/when the Indians would win a World Series title in my lifetime. As of this writing, I have no such tattoo…but I’m ever hopeful. And for the record, it will be a full color or black and white rendering of Chief Wahoo. Those people who are offended by a cartoon rendering of an Indian or think that the depiction is offensive…get a clue and a life. I will not apologize for my stance on this topic and you can Google my other pieces that I’ve written detailing why the cartoon image should be left alone.

Friday Random Show Me Search

poppycock

Finally it is Friday! Thank the all-powerful entity behind the curtain of the universe for making this happen! So today, as I like to do on occasion, I have lined up a number of random phrases or nouns or funny words. From there I plug them into the magical Google search box and see what images are brought forth. Let us begin!

What Do You Have To Be Stressed About?

So I’m asking this for a friend. Actually no I’m not. Because frankly the question is intrusive and kind of rude.

Hi there to my repeat readers and also those who are discovering my blog for the first time! For those new readers who have not read much (if any) of my blog posts, let me just preface this introduction by stating that usually I take a topic and expound upon it as it affects me on a primal level. There is not too much continuity or a universally unifying theme for my posts except that I am giving my unsolicited two cents worth on an issue or subject. Continue reading “What Do You Have To Be Stressed About?”

Jurassic Tuesday

Good afternoon!

Tonight I am supposed to drive to the stadium to see my Indians play the Cardinals but Mother Nature seems a bit weepy so the game may be delayed or postponed. If such should happen, my backup plan would be to see Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom again!  Continue reading “Jurassic Tuesday”

A Holiday Weekend in May

Good afternoon and welcome to the last Tuesday in May 2018 of your lifetime! I tried to come up with something clever and catchy for the title but as of the writing of this part…I hadn’t tapped into anything yet. Maybe it will just come to me. Time will tell.

Concuss Thy Self

Hello and greetings! Today is Tuesday and it’s a foggy, fuzzy day just like yesterday. And no I am not making a visual assessment of the weather conditions of Loch Ness; although it would be cool to check out Nessie’s home at least once before I am rendered into a pile of dust.

Podcast Thursday

1-11. How about 1-11-111? What is this some sort of code? Oh 01-11-2018. I’m with ya now.

Today is podcast Thursday! So far today I have been listening to a few different podcasts including my own. Some of you may be asking: why do I listen to my own podcast? Well for a couple of reasons. First off I want to make sure the audio levels are decent and there isn’t too much secondary noise or whatnot that is detracting from the listening quality of the show. Second, I want to see if the show has flow and decent content. Yes I tend to map out topics beforehand and obviously I am the only one talking about them but you are never sure how external stimuli affect the logical flow and delivery of the material. And lastly, I am trying to make sure each show is a little bit different and not just a rehash of the same old thing from show to show. Being able to introduce new topics or adequately explain point of views is necessary; otherwise what is the point of putting out a podcast show? If it’s boring and senseless I might just as well make a show recording all the times I brush my teeth during the week.

So for all those people who have checked out my podcast: The Freak Show on the Podbean app – gracias!

Happy Thursday ~~ Peace.
