We travel 150 miles to socially distance

Sometimes you find yourself thinking "I wonder which name they were going for - and do they know there really aren't any women named Abraham out there?" Things might be different in Ghana, of course - I say Ghana because all their Likes seem to be tied to that particular country....but who can really read the mind of this "Abarham Abrish"

I DIDN'T EAT THAT: Finally throwing out all my not-Top Ramen with freshness dates in years such as 2007 and 2005 (it's entirely possible I bought some of these before moving to Minnesota?!) RIP chicken+Creamora noodles, strange economy brand noodles and interesting imported delicacies I'll never know because I needed to eat white rice for the ten thousandth time
14.9 12:33 Happy Friendiversary! Sorry good ol' Facebook couldn't find any photos of us together. (Friendiversy video with Christian)

I don't want to alarm you, but after broadcasting this show... Sean McPherson followed me on Twitter

WEEKLY PLUG: I'm on the actual physical radio at 5! Maybe a few minutes before. KFAI 90.3 FM and streaming from kfai dot org!
11.9 20:53 
I'LL EAT THAT: Well..... they were okay. That's about the most I expected given I wasn't sure Dr Pepper should be anywhere near beans. I didn't really taste any Pepperness, but whatever it was wasn't BAD considering I'm usually not into "sweet" beans. Bonus: they're vegan! The more heat I applied, the better they got, so maybe you really gotta BROWN 'em. Aaron I'm ready to mail you two cans once you think the mail will get them to ya, thanks for the suggestion! #FridayNightBachelorChow #BeAPepper #FullOfBeans #hashtag

Hi, I'm Robert Reich. Here is a photo of me, Robert Reich, which proves I am Robert Reich. Please ignore the "sent by Nolan for MoveOn" notice at the end of this long-ass text. But also, can I have $3 a week for as long as I can get away with?

A little decor upgrade "before and after" - only one thing could supplant the $2 Jesus I bought at Howard's yard sale four years ago and this was it. Thanks to Ian for the opportunity to proudly own AND display this Hap Mansfield original painting! (Don't worry, Jesus fans - there's always room for Jesus in my house)
5.9 20:37 I walked 28+ miles this week. I do not expect this to be a regular announcement

Another fun time playing new music and your requests! New music from The Killers with k.d. lang, Seether, Blue Öyster Cult (thank you Sean), Phoenix, IDKHOW, Disclosure with Kelis, a new remix of Robyn, new CNCO, Declan McKenna, Mong Tong, Bob Moses, Hælos and Carw! ELEVEN requests! And one look out the window to see Andy. Here's the archive if you missed it or would like to hear it again!

Wow, what a fun time guest hosting True Brit! Radio - my third time and definitely my best, thanks in no small part to what I consider a successful AND epic-length "Stump Ron" segment (all I forgot to do was entrap him on air by asking if he'd finally accept my Facebook Friend request) along with a fun bunch in the Discord from whom I managed to coax an instant request and one VERY enthusiastic caller who called three times - twice to request I play "I'm Going Shopping" a second time :) If YOU missed any of it, or would like to relive it any time over the next 14 days, the archived version is right.......THERE! I'm back at KFAI and back on the air in...whoa, now just 14 hours!

5.9 02:44 Charlotte wasn't around when I left at 11ish. I saw her underneath the railing just now, but between the time I looked down to fire up the camera and looked back up, she had disappeared - gone back into hiding. I think she wants me to stop stalking her but is too polite to outright break up with me. This is the story of my life...
4.9 09:35 
BONUS RADIO CRZ! Tonight at midnight I'm guest hosting True Brit! Radio, where - yes - I will attempt to Stump Ron. I'll also share some of my favourite 1980s remixes along with some of the newer UK finds I've recently been playing on KFAI Weekend on Demand, which I'll be BACK at KFAI for 15 hours after I'm done!

The wind (or a bumblebee) took out the spider's web again, except for three pretty strong base strands. I'll check back at midnight as I can see this is the content you're here for. Here's a crappy video from this morning when it was still up

So exactly how far DID I walk tonight? Was it:

A. 3.84 miles in 64:01
B. 4.04 miles in 64:04
C. 4.12 miles in 64:08
D. 4.56 miles in 64:54

Depends on whether you believe Samsung Health, MapMyWalk, Strava or Google Fit....which is weird because I think they all use the same GPS and step count from the phone (or maybe the phone AND the Pebble?)

Anyway, I might buy one of those Samsung Fit "watch" things at Costco next time I'm there and see if that makes things even more confusing...

Screen grabs for the academics follow in the comments...

Hey hi! Guess what? I played TWENTY-FIVE REQUESTS (!!!!!) on Saturday, including at least one from everybody I tagged. I'm glad for the musical tastes represented here - yes, ALL of them - but if for whatever reason you aren't hearing what YOU wanted....well, I'm hoping you're ready with YOUR request for THIS Saturday!

Okay these may be the best "nacho cheese" chips I've ever sampled! GAME CHANGED

Hey wanna know what happened to all the requests I begged you for Thursday night? Tune/stream into KFAI (90•3/kfai•org) in TEN MINUTES for TWO SOLID HOURS of YOURRRRRRRRRR PROGRAMMING! A very special "fifth Saturday" episode of KFAI Weekend on Demand is coming courtesy me - and YOU!
29.8 13:31 This is the best (and truest) joke about LaLa I've ever shared (so yeah gotta share it again)
27.8 21:26 Curfew's fun, isn't it?

What's something you'd like to hear that I'd be able to find tonight or tomorrow and play on Saturday? Preferably something you're NOT hearing on the radio already, although if it's something that used to be played and isn't now, I'm probably down. But for real, what's your favourite Zambian funk track?

If it's Saturday, it must be me making my weekly self-plug! Tune/stream into KFAI in four hours for two hours of new music and your requests, presented by MEEEEEEEEEEE from 5 to 7 (CDT). Don't be late - my first cut will be Mom's request! More fun at the Facebook page for KFAI Weekend on Demand (which could also use your Like if you are amenable)

Ah yes, the old "end of Friday" email....

...yep, it's official - teleworking until 2021. At least.

Cocktails ahoy!

LIFE UPDATE! It's really weird seeing interviews for my current job come across On This Day from a year ago. Today, 19 August, I passed the six month mark at MNIT, which earns me certification as a permanent employee. My probation is over! I still feel that this is the last place I will have to work in my life and the ease that comes from knowing I'll never have to write another resumé or hustle for another interview (unless I want to!) is priceless. It took me surviving two years of hellish uncertainty, but survive I did and I'm now in the perfect place at pretty close to the right time. I'm so lucky and so fortunate with how things have turned out for me with this job after so many months aimlessly wondering if I'd ever find a role at all, much less a role that was right for me. Between that and getting a time slot at KFAI, where I am ALSO under probation but have incredible freedom to program my playlists (and am very slowly gathering unsolicited compliments AND a following!), my life in 2020 ain't all that bad...once you get past the crushing loneliness of near-constant quarantine thanks to the rona, of course. ;-) Anyway, to those of you who had to read my statuses since 2018, I hope you feel rewarded reading this one. If not, that's okay...this was mostly for Mom to read later!

Last week I finally bought a big ol' cheapo Bluetooth speaker which I am now calling my son and dragging all over the house but I'm NOT talking back to him...much.

RIP last bottle of discontinued salad dressing in the entire world - I'll miss you. (No, I won't tell you what year the freshness date on this bottle is)
17.8 17:01 
How about a little Weekend for ya? New music from Nickelback(!), KoЯn(!!), 070 Shake with Tame Impala, bdrmm, Secret Machines, Badly Drawn Boy, Sufjan Stevens, JTC, Smoove & Turrell, LAZERTITS, Midnight Oil, YĪN YĪN, Annie and Sofi Tukker & Gorgon City! Old music and requests from Prince, Heart, Puffy (the Japan one), Freezepop, Pointed Sticks, Q-Feel and KMFDM! Oh and a little Depeche Mode, too. All this PLUS that CD-R from Malta we received last week AND even more. And ME! ANOTHER NOTCH! Can you believe we squoze it all into two hours? We'll do it all over again Saturday afternoon!

Hi there! Quick reminder that I'll be live on KFAI at 5 (CDT, 6 EDT, 11 BST, 3 PDT) so please adjust your plans accordingly so that you can tune in on the radio OR streaming live from the website and join me as I test your patience with - yes - Nickelback

Bad news, everybody - continuing extreme weather coverage is preventing me from watching WWE SmackDown!
