life with limits

friends,

episode 386 is here! interestingly, i had a kernel of a different idea in mind for tonight, but, upon uncovering a few old demo songs from 2011, things went a bit askew. which brings me to memory and emotion and the need for faith and thought and community. the circuity of it all is a bit of a mystery. for which i'm thankful.

i'm glad you're here, and hope you'll listen. :)

love,
russell

partly fiction

friends,

episode 384 is here and brings us to some thoughts inspired by harry dean stanton and the recent documentary about him called partly fiction.

my reaction to mr. stanton's conclusions and stance toward the world, reality, etc., is mixed and somewhat still-evolving. but his persona fascinates me - both as a person and the roles/characters he's played. and (maybe most of all??) the broad lines of connection that seem to exist between the two.

i hope you'll listen! and check the links below:

the interview - with the man
the trailer - for partly fiction
one of my - favorite movies
a great scene from - the straight story

love,

philip seymour hoffman

dear friends,

this week's podcast is here, and finds me a bit quiet and thoughtful. mostly because of the untimely passing of philip seymour hoffman. along with many many others, i've admired mr. hoffman's work for a long time. it's sad to see a strong talent leave too soon. and even more heartbreaking under these circumstances. words don't say these sorts of things. not well, anyway. but episode 383 is my small attempt.

my heart, and hope for comfort, to the friends and family most affected.

love,
russell

ps - as mentioned, i plan to talk more about harry dean stanton next week. you can see the interview i referenced here.
