Finally! Soundseeing of the gay pride parade here in Houston. I walked around with my good friend Carolyn Johnson, ran into an old friend, and just roamed my first gay pride parade in years since I dropped the “self-loathing homosexual” routine. Also, new music from Lanky and Bronski Beat’s classic gay anthem, Smalltown Boy (iTunes link).
Getting settled in with the new laptop, I apologize if you wound up with two versions of this show. This is a preview of some upcoming interviews, and some thoughts about my impending homelessness.
well, there are still a few of the crackles. please help if you have any ideas what may be causing it.
There are only a handful of people whom I feel have truly transformed me, many of them with just a sentence or two. Maybe with words that they had held with them for as long as they have walked on the earth, or maybe something that had no idea that they held with them. Who knows. Since these are my last couple of months in Houston, I felt that I wanted to track a few of these people down and have them on my show.
The first guest in this series is my dear friend, videographer Jeanie. We talked over breakfast at One’s a Meal about her video project-Everyone Has A Story, the major turning points in her life and how our friendship blossomed.
Today I talked to Chris Doelle about his new Podcasting Network, Fresh Media Works. Also feature music from Triple Creme, Christopher Dallman, and Dalminjo featuring Anja Øyen Vister
I guess the title pretty much covers it.

Hollye Davidson’s The Artist’s Eye
**oooops! I said that Hollye’s podcast could be found at the PMN, which is totally not right. It is at Podcaster News. I don’t know what the hell I was thinking.**

Japanese rap activist, peace advocate and inventor shing02 joins me today to talk about his current project with Ryuichi Sakamoto. Stop-Rokkasho was started as a means of raising awareness about the opening of a nuclear reprocessing plant in the Japanese village of Rokkasho. The artists invite podcast subscribers and visitors to the site to download different versions of the song and create their own remixes of the track to post online with a banner about the project. Let me know if you participate so I can link to you too!
