Episode 165 - The Everlasting Man by G. K. Chesterton - Part I Chapter VIII The End of the World


Just a quick note, in case you've been wondering.

I've recorded more G.K. Chesterton books than of any other author.  I like his writing, and I like the way I sound when I read it.

That doesn't mean I agree with everything he says, and I am not endorsing his beliefs.  He was I gather considered a liberal by the standards of his day.  By modern standards he'd be a bigot and a racist.  He was profoundly parochial in every sense of the world, and proud of it.  His views were those of a man of his time, place and background.  He could use terms and language that in a public venue today would  make jaws drop and fists rise.  And yes, I quote them word for word.  Because yes, that's what he wrote in the book.

That said, he was an intelligent man and a good writer.  And he spoke in a manner that has gone out of fashion.  It seems the fashion lately to despise people who don't agree, and to see malice in every opinion and action, what one writer has called the "indig-nation," a whole society whose first response is anger and hatred.  As mentioned in the introduction to "Heretics," Chesterton could disagree strenuously with his closest friends, and they remained his closest friends.  He admired them and treated them with respect.  They returned that view.  That's refreshing, and it's sad how rare that's become.

So I'm recording this book because I was asked.  And I'm recording this book for the reason I recorded the others, because these books are worth exploring, it is valuable to be reminded that good ideas and wisdom weren't invented in last week's latest self-help book.  Sometimes the old books ought to be dusted off and reread.  And it's much easier if someone, me for example, can read them aloud to you so you don't just see what was typed, you know what was meant -- at least as well as I can figure that out.

So now that I've got that off my chest, let's get on with recording the book.

Episode 164 - No Fly No Buy - Not Buyin' It


I have a severe allergy to too-clever political speech.  This is my abrupt sneeze on a timely topic.  Sorry.  Here's a tissue.

Episode 163 - My Well-Regulated Mansplanation


I casually mentioned on Twitter that the late Chief Justice Warren Berger was wrong about the Second Amendment.  And he was, indirectly.  I got jumped on with both feet by someone with lots more followers than me.  And when I responded without fawning, Twitter decided I must be hacked and took me offline.

So here's my well-regulated "mansplanation" of what I'd only suggested I might say before.  It's not as articulate as it might be, and I didn't make an effort to respond to the million-follower trolls and flamewars in detail.  Just said my piece in 10 minutes or so, and stopped.

It's a discussion we damn well better have now, while we still can.  As some old white guy once said.

Episode 162 - The Everlasting Man by G. K. Chesterton - Part I Chapter VII The War of the Gods and Demons


Got the Karaoke machine working.  Turned out I simply needed to unplug and reseat the cable from the machine to the mixer, and it seems fine now.  Here's hoping.  And then The Everlasting Man...

Episode 161 - The Everlasting Man by G. K. Chesterton - Part I Chapter VI The Demons and The Philosophers


Just a brief mention of trying to get my Karaoke machine working for singing in Second Life.  And I forgot to mention the new logo, based on a gift from a fan (on Second Life, dunno if he listens here)... which as you can see is gorgeous!

Recorded this episode and this chapter of Everlasting Man on the Blue Yeti.  Better?  Took six hours to edit, especially the traffic noises.
