#39: the silence of the room

Kinda too tired for show notes at the moment, and very interested in taking a bath, but let it be known that VR SEX and Bi Polar rocked the shit and piss out of the Middle East Upstairs on Saturday night. Click those links, my dudes.

#38: whingeing all over the place

I play what I want on this show. And I have low-key spring mania.

We’re ostensibly watching The Batman right now, and I tell you what, I am bored out of my gourd. So I made this garden-based promo. Wait, John Turturro is here now? Well, okay. *yawn*

#37: feels like being cloned

Big news in the Callan world this week that I didn’t mention at all in the show (oops?), but yeah, I’m going to be starting my PhD in the fall, so that’s fun and kinda nuts.

New promo text as follows: Come in for a doomin’ onion and stay a while at the Outback Witch House, here on Uncertain FM every Wednesday from 8-10 PM Eastern. We’ve got your fix for goth, new wave, punk, post-punk, post-hardcore, and other genres that feature moody people and synthesizers. Find out more at

#36: now that it’s gone, never again

Things I am really into right now:
1) This week’s show
2) The little purple flowers all over the lawn (are these creeping myrtle/part of the vinca? I can’t tell)
3) Shaking Seafood in Roslindale?!?! like wtf is up with those BREADED WINGS
4) Design Justice, which I should have read ~2 years ago
5) The Lot community radio space in Brooklyn. We started thinking about how Uncertain could do something like that.
6) Panda sitting like an uncomfortable human and attempting mind control regarding the office door
