Outback Witch House S01E03: Words are just words that you’ll soon forget

What’s there to say about this week’s show, other than that it came together at the last second? I was having a hard time compartmentalizing my life this week, still am honestly. As I said on the show, things coalesced around Econoline Crush’s “Devil You Know;” as I didn’t mention, the other cornerstone here was Laurel Halo’s “Light + Space.” I wanted to traverse the spaces I hear between those two points.

I was thinking about the amount of text I’ve written in emails in my life and how they’re the classic case of words you’ll soon forget. It would disturb me to know the word/page count. I was also thinking about some of my recurring dreams of late. One is the classic “have to go back to high school to finish some random class” dream. I also dream of: 1) Austin, Texas; 2) Roads and maps and walls; 3) Getting lost on public transit in places I don’t know yet; 4) Missing flights.

Just pulled a Tarot card at random and it’s The Hermit, reversed. Policy, disguise, unreasoned caution, concealment.

Outback Witch House S01E01: Post-Traumatic Love

Hey, folks. I’ve been doing a “pirate radio” show (i.e., using some janky streaming service to broadcast online out of my house) on Friday nights from 9-11 PM EST. I’m going to start posting playlists and past shows here, starting with today’s programme. I’ve been doing this for a month or two now, but this is the first officially recorded instance, so we’ll go with calling it S01E01. “Post-Traumatic Love” is a song by the band ACTORS that didn’t appear tonight, but this week it’s a phrase that resonates. I hope today’s OWH helps you recuperate and relax just a bit on this dead-of-winter weekend.
