[Gothic BC] 49, going on dead: episode 5

In this episode: The video is more stable even if I am not. I explore the all-knowing trash heap. I watch a douchenozzle nearly get hit by a bus. I plan future trespasses. I babble about what I talked about in therapy. And I nearly get hit by a car. The fun never stops.

[Gothic BC] 49, going on dead: episode 4

In this episode: I am actually am 49 now, use two cameras, the basket falls off, getting back on the bike becomes a metaphor, I discover a museum, I probably over-share, and both figuratively and literally look at my life as, in, on and above a trash heap.

[Gothic BC] 49, going on dead: episode 3

In this episode I go for a 40-block walk in 30 ⁰C weather, buy a bike lock, avoid talking about what is really bothering me and babble about the significance of dead topiary hedges, Senate reform and other things that really don't have much to do with how I am feeling.

Featuring nosy neighbours, dead batteries, crow food, and failure on a Sunday morning....

[Gothic BC] 49, going on dead: episode 1

The first episode of stream-of-consciousness babbling video diary of my attempts as a 49-year-old goth to deal with depression through sunshine (ick) and exercise.

[Gothic BC] The Cure

On May 25 I was on Bad Vibes on CFRO (you can listen to it here.) Marc Godfrey and I were picking from a list of music that I brought with me depending on how the conversation went. I came armed with almost three hours of music for a one hour interview, with everything picked for a reason. This is the fourth in a series of posts where I run through those choices, including the ones that we didn't get to, and talk about why I picked them. 

In this post I'll cover the rest of the the Cure songs played and not played. But before I get started, I have one question. Is anyone reading these. Seriously. Comment here, like, +1 or comment on one of the automatic reposts, anything, because I really don't know what the fuck I am doing any of this (or anything at all) for.
