Erika and Kaye continue the discussion about the new tv shows coming out this fall, or as we later realized some that never made their way to air. Wine, Erika’s celebrity man wish list, North Korea and shows to watch on Netflix (after you are done listening to this podcast go watch Derek) are all covered in this episode. Make sure you listen carefully for our exciting impression of Will Arnet in his new sitcom coming out this fall.

Resurrection may be a word that is too strong for this situation. The podcast was never really dead. While not generating new content, people continued to download episodes and listen to them. So while it rests it is still sought as a source. Maybe it’s more like coming out of hibernation.

Sometimes I feel like I need to explain why I took a break from creating new content. I imagine someone, somewhere actually caring that I made, what felt like, the move of the century which upheaved the standard operating procedure of my life and sucked me dry of every bit of energy I could muster just to get by daily; or that it took me 5 months to get my home computer setup and an additional 3 days to get all of the Windows updates completed. There were probably other things that happened that prevented me from working on the podcast, but it doesn’t really matter, because someone(s), somewhere(s) is still downloading what I created over a year ago to listen to what my guests and I have to say and that’s pretty cool.

It’s also very cool that I have friends that have said to me, “Hey when are you going to do a new podcast?” Or, “We should do a new podcast soon about the TV shows coming out again this year.” Hearing these things have encouraged me to think about what I want this to be. I anticipate writing more blogs that may or may not be tied to a specific podcast so be sure to subscribe to updates (hint, hint) of this blog. I anticipate reaching out to a larger spread of friends and acquaintances to learn about how they feel about specific parts of life; securing a place where we can all share our thoughts and feelings and take on the world and share our stories. I want to move the idea from being an educational podcast with solely interviews to being more of an aural art piece for listeners. Some topics will likely be more serious than others. More music will be incorporated to the conversations along with different genres of aural art forms. I’m also toying with the idea of introducing an alter ego to the podcast (doesn’t that sound exciting?), which will hopefully add another layer to the experience.

Thank you for being patient, encouraging and excited. I, too, am now excited to explore the next stage of The Lazy Learner.

The Lazy Learner Art

I’m OBVIOUSLY an amazing artist with my fancy stick figures and all. I won’t lie, I also utilized Paint (the most awesome image editing software ever) to make it look even nicer.

Ok, ok, I know it’s not amazing, but that’s not the point of this whole project. I do not intended any of this to be amazing or even the best podcast ever in the history of the world. But I have reasons for doing this project. Here are the main two.

The first, and most important reason, is for me to do something artistic in nature that feeds my many passions and interests and helps me grow my relationships. I sit at a computer all day in a cube, but with an amazing view, so I won’t complain about the cube. While I like my job and love my co-workers, the job doesn’t lend itself to a great depth of creativity artistically. I wanted to do something I have never done before that was artistic and required me to think and create in a new way I have never explored.

The second reason is a little less obvious; in my much earlier years in life, and even sometimes still, I am a perfectionist. I refused to do something unless I knew I could do it perfectly and be outrageously successful. As I’ve grown older (sad face) and wiser (questionable pensive face), I have learned that being DONE is better than not doing at all. I’m using this venture to practice and learn how to set small, attainable goals, or do-ables to complete a project with out it feeling overwhelmed by the pressure of perfection.

I had a goal of having some kind of art before releasing my first podcast. So, here it is. While it’s not perfect, it’s not amazing, it’s not a colorful graphic that blows you away, it’s done and I have attained my goal of getting my art done before my first podcast release.

It’s very exciting and I really cannot wait to share the garden of my mind with everyone! If that makes no sense to you please visit my About page!
