Episode 74. Comic Gong adjacent.

image2

Last weekend I went to Wollongong’s fast growing comics and pop culture festival “Comic Gong”, and met up with Sean Sheap, S’Hershel, DJ Hifi, Brendan and Angus. And we talked. I ate a burger beforehand, and it was dee-to-the-licious (Thanks Three Chimneys). We laughed, cried and ate chocolate. One of these things we actually didn’t do, I’ll leave that open to interpretation.

Episode 73. It’s not funny, it’s important. #shedmusic

image2

Sean Sheap and S’Hershel* met me at the Charles Hotel in Fairy Meadow on a Sunday morning and we soaked in the glorious ambiance and had a chat. The Charles holds some significance for Sheap, which he goes into when we were sitting on the front courtyard, where we held court over the rest of the yard. The fact that we were the only ones there at the time isn’t important, we rocked that place… HARD! +Tom Gleeson voice+

Also, for anyone reading this the day of it’s release, my beautiful and talented wife Louise is a part of a photography exhibition called Paws For a Cause this Thursday night at Three Chimneys in Wollongong. It’s an animal photography exhibition and fundraiser sponsored by the great people at Three Chimneys and Symbio Wildlife Park wherein 10% of all photos sold will go to the charity of the purchasers choosing, which are as follows: WIRES, NSW Wildlife Information, Rescue & Education Service & WARN (Wollongong Animal Rescue Network). I’ll be there, I hope to see yawl there too.

Episode 72. Float forever @ Cocoon Floatation.

image2

Okay, this one has some backstory. Two years ago, Megan from Cocoon Floatation in Figtree contacted me after listening to this podcast and asked me if I would like to try out floating and podcasting about it. I think when I originally got the emails from her I thought she wanted me to podcast from inside the tank.. Yeah I know, a ridiculous notion, and how I came to that conclusion, I don’t know. Well I do know; I’m me and interpret things “creatively” sometimes.. Yeah, that’s a nice way of putting it. I guess actually podcasting from inside the tank is not entirely impossible, but after doing it I realise it would be probably counter productive to what you’re meant to get from floating.

Anyway, I flaked for a long time. At the time I hadn’t recorded the podcast for a while, a few months at least, and I’d convinced myself that I may have been done with podcasting, I was finding it hard to put myself out there, and the thought of going to this place and doing something like floating in salt water in a dark (albeit very spacious) tank and then talking about it freaked me out. Well, fast forward two years and I finally took the plunge for the first time in January, and I’ve been back another two times afterwards. This episode is me talking with Megan for about ten minutes after my second float, and then the remainder is Megan, myself and my sister talking post float after my third time. Why is it structured that way you ask? The simple answer is sometimes, I can’t grasp the simple basic operation of this audio recorder that I’ve owned and been using for four years now. If you listen, I’m sure I’ll over explain it even more. But hey, it was a great time every time I’ve been, and it’s one of those things worth trying. For me personally, I think I get something different every time. I’m looking forward to float four.

Thank-you so much to Megan and Cocoon for having my sister and myself over there, and for being so patient considering the procrastinating I carried on with in terms of actually getting there, and the technical difficulties that ensued once I finally did get my shit together. At the end of the day we got it done and I feel pretty chuffed with the finished product.

Episode 71. To be or not to be; likeable.

image2

The Skype crew has a new name, thus the Church of Daptology is now in session. We discuss how one becomes more likeable by reading listicles, as well as a bit of half baked politics and there’s even a “too much information” moment from myself. If I’m realistic, Pod Kembla in general could be accused of having too much (useless) information about me and my idiocy.

Episode 70. Hash tag, yay podcasting.

image2

Taking it back to the source this week, the Skype crew returns and we’ve added a new member. Joining Matt, Nugz and myself this week is Vaughny. We talk that Daptology Philosophy (trademark), like we only know how to do. More to come on that in a week or two.. Stay tuned; the revolution will be podcasted and then consumed at your own leisure.

Episode 69. A Kurt between two Sean/Shaun’s (live-ish from Bulli).

image2

On location! I met up with Sean Sheap and Snidermayne at the recent “Illawarra Record Fair” at Bulli Workers Club. We talked a little music, a little hot button vulgarity and a whole lot of crap, and it was marvellous. Special mention goes out to Lord Lucifer of the Devil’s Jukebox for making a cameo on this humble rag-tag podcast, and for putting on a great event along with the Crate Diggers Collective.

Episode 68. Mike Elrington.

Mike Elrington is a blues musician originally from Adelaide but now based in Melbourne. He will be playing at Janes in North Wollongong on the 10th of March, to launch his recently released album “Two Lucky Stars“. Mike graciously indulged me with his time to chat about his album, music and life in general. A little house keeping; near the end of the episode I mention Stevie Ray Vaughan, what I meant to say was Neil Young.. If that means nothing to you then that’s fine by me, if it does then I’m glad to clear it up for all of us. Anyway, many thanks to Mike for taking time out of his schedule to wax lyrical on Pod Kembla.

Episode 65. Exactly.

End of year outrage wrap ups, singularity fears, festivities; this is Pod Kembla.

Nugz and Matt joined me in the “studio” (aka the back room of my house) to talk the talk we like to talk. The motto to come away with for 2015 comes from Nugz; #sortitout

Here’s the AV Club article if you want to see what the rest of the outrage was all about. http://www.avclub.com/article/year-outrage-24-times-2015-totally-lost-its-shit-229852
