Where did the time go?
Sometimes I need little extra push to get myself pointed in the right direction. There are countless methods out there that proclaim to cure a writer of their creative blocks, or motivate even the most lethargic pencil pusher.
Nostrums! Snake Oil!
Autism-causing vaccinations! OK, maybe not that last one.
As a slacker fueled by distractions, I have attempted just about every method out there to escape the event horizon of the anti-productivity black hole. Yet, even my ever-increasing mass does not seem to attract enough accountability to keep me from ignoring the goal all together and justifying my inaction.
Something a little more drastic must be done.
I’ve been attempting to change some stuff around here on Worthless Genius, and I came to the conclusion that I need a better tag line. Though the current one does apply pretty well to what I talk about here, I think it’s about time to switch things up, and maybe head in a new direction.
My ongoing love affair with the unknown has been bolstered once again by the Mysterious Universe podcast.
Season 2 has been a refreshing mix of the new and the old, with Benjamin Grundy returning with a new co-host, Aaron Wright.
I have been a listener since the early days of Season 1, and I’m super excited that they have again released the back catalog, this time on 8GB brushed metal USB drives.
The podcast that has been held so highly in my heart as the best podcast ever made, Mysterious Universe, has returned after a long hiatus.
There was some speculation about the return, when the website changed to show that things were ramping up, and now we’re finally being treated with brand new episodes.
So how does the new “season” of Mysterious Universe stack up to the classic?
Reader of Worthless Genius “sr71a” pointed out in the comments of the Requiem For A Podcast article that the Mysterious Universe site is showing new signs of life, with the tantalizing words “Undocking soon in 2009…”:
Entering the site presents you with a screen that allows you to sign up for updates when they are available:
No Longer in "Podcast Hibernation"
Needless to say, I am super excited about this development, but there are a few questions that I have:
- Will Benjamin Grundy be at the helm once again?
- Will the quality be on par with what was done before?
- Have I grown out of the content of this podcast?
I’d have to say a resounding NO to that last one. If you were a fan of this wonderful podcast, head on over and sign up for the updates. I know I will be happily awaiting the return!
