Some Days I Feel Like A Broken Typewriter
We’ve all had them. Those little moments in life where you know things are broken. Thats how I felt on the drive home from my last day at work. I had just been laid off… for the third time. I tried to put it all into perspective once I got back to my shiny new apartment which I had just moved into a few weeks before. I had just paid out a few thousand dollars to outfit with the latest extravagances like dishes, a microwave oven, a bed, and a TV. Nowadays my savings goes toward covering rent long enough to keep an apartment I haven’t even fully moved into yet. Just days before my layoff, internet access was something I just needed to hook up “tomorrow” after buying a new computer which I had been saving up for, for quite a while. Now internet access and a computer are extravagances I simply cant afford.
I am sad to say that due to being laid off unexpectedly (yet again), the relaunch of the Listening Post has been pushed back, indefinately. I will continue to move forward as much as possible, but this relaunch is clearly going to take alot more time than I hoped. Without a computer or even internet connection of my own, it becomes very difficult to continue the work needed for interviews, reviews, collecting podcast feeds and the myriad of other things needed to make this blogcast work. I was looking forward to relaunching this website before all this happened and I still am, but this is also my third time “rebooting” my life. So please be patient.
To paraphrase Miracle Max from “The Princess Bride”, The Listening Post is not “all dead” its only “mostly dead”…
