Couldn’t get my head round magic today, so opted to waste my time in a different way instead – namely by trying to rid myself of the albatross of temptation that’s been on me since Blimpy’s first podcast. So here, then, is my first effort. I really enjoyed making it, even though it terrified me, and I really hope you enjoy some or all of it.
And now the caveats. It is VERY creaky, as I repeatedly point out during the thing itself (I apologise too much, sorry). The sound levels are rotten, my mic is terrible, there are little plosive puffs of air all over the place, I ‘um’ and ‘ah’ like a good-un and I am well aware that three songs early on are almost inaudible. I don’t know why that last one should be but if you turn them up REALLY LOUD then you can hear a bit and I didn’t have the heart to re-record it all….
Still, in spite of all that, I invite your thoughts, your criticisms and your advice. Either way, I’m doing another one soon, with less mistakes, so you’re stuck with me.
WARNING: This podcast contains some sweary talk which made me feel very big and clever. Sorry.
