an email to my sister

I really can’t bear to stay here knowing that 76% of the people of Texas hate me.

I have been through this before tho, so I would like to say that I am beginning to explore the idea of moving to Brooklyn. Would you be willing to give me some of your financial guidance as I begin this exploration. The only thing that has kept me here has been money, and you are so much better with it than I.

I am so hurt and angry about this realization, I have been so naïve about this state, about how people feel about homos.

Give me your thoughts.

MikeyPod 19 | Houston Farmer’s Market

Last week, Riding with the Window Down’s Chris Doelle and I combined forces to bring you a soundseeing tour of the Houston Farmer’s Market. Here’s who we ran into:

Honi from Jolie Vue Farms.
Anita from A Remarkable Experience
Janet from ???? (sorry, I didn’t write anything down)
Gus- again I didn’t catch the name of his farm, but his story gives a strong argument for organic farming.
Janice from Words and Foods. I bought her Potato, Orange and Rosemary Soup. It kicked ass.
Robin from Central City Co-op

No Podcast today!

I won’t be posting another show until later in the week. I am working on getting my audio better and I refuse to do another show with that damned high frequency noise.

As a minor consolation, I posted a downloadable mixtape on my livejournal that you may enjoy.

Look forward to a brand new MikePod on the Bayou on thursday or so with nice CLEAN sound quality!
