~Happy Thursday With Existential Curiosity~

 
KAFKA QUOTES

By believing passionately in something that does not exist, we create it. The non-existent is whatever we have not sufficiently desired.

A (wo)man of action forced into a state of thought is unhappy until (s)he can get out of it.

Believing in progress does not mean believing that any progress has yet been made.

Evil is whatever distracts.

Start with what is right, rather than what is acceptable.

 
In the fight between you and the world, back the world.

 
 
My fear is my substance and perhaps the best part of me.

 
Not everyone can see the truth, but (s)he can be it.

 
The mediation by the serpent was necessary. Evil can seduce man, but cannot become (wo)man.

~Happy Moan Day: When The Carpets Run Red~


Fyo Kafka: Mami doth sayeth, "Raaaaaawrrr"

Fyo Kafka: Hence, I doth sail-eth forth. Away, doth go I. Away from thou soilent carpet!!!   =)
“Now, my beloved, step down from your chariot, and let not your foot, my lord, touch the Earth. 
 Servants, let there be spread before the house he never expected to see, where Justice leads him in, a crimson path."  
-The earliest known reference to walking a red carpet in literature is in the play Agamemnon by Aeschylus, written in 458 BC.

***********************

OK, so the reporting stats above represent the evolving listenership chez Playtime With Sandra Radio

I sat down on Thursday with my ever-near pen and notebook and jotted down the aforementioned results <and broke them down even more, and more still, in mega-specific detail, but that'll be published on my Archives site later this weekend> which were available in a slightly more raw format in my BlogTalkRadio Reporting section. 

Then, today, I went back and listened to my 2nd most popular episode "For The Love of Augustus" from July 29th, 2012 and heard where I mentioned my half-year stats <26th episode>. 

Ok, can I please brag for five minutes and be all silly grin to tell you that, no matter how happy I was to have just under 8,000 or so listens six months in.... having over 40,000 listens via BlogTalkRadio just six months later is just, like,....daaayuuuuummmmyyy?!?!  =)

But, wait. 

How did I do it? 

I wish I could pinpoint one specific apex, turning point, gem of a tip in action, or what have you.

But, then again, maybe I don't! ;) jk

Well, look, I know for darn sure that a large part of my jump in listenership would not be possible without the lovely, brilliant, indomitable Jess Edwards of Naked Girls Radio.

Jess, Ms. Birthday Weekend Lady, herself, has been in radio broadcasting out in the Windy City for a great deal of time. She has thereby exuded the powers of being a collabo extraordinaire with a musically dynamic platform. 

So THAT combination and open cross-promotion would be The Gem, in large part. 
Additionally,  due to our mutual love of music, models, indies, and all things aural, well there ya are! 

Now, aside from Naked Girls Radio, I am forever grateful to all my guests who have appeared on my show and who are waiting <with heavenly patience, I might add> in the wings for some air space. 

Nearly half of my collective series of shows in the past year have featured some starry, brilliant, shiny person or collective.  Many of my new and longtime  IRL and e-friends eagerly await each interview and pester me adorably for more, more, MORE! 

And, so, yes, of course!!! It is written. ;)

Um, and, although I have yet to have a perfectly streamlined show 'brainstorming' pre-planning operation nor an intentionally pre-scheduled 'deep analysis'-reserved allotment of time:

->   I DO check in on my show reports with some sort of regularity and 

-> I DO read podcast forums, blogs, and how-tos from time to time and

-> I DO take, keep, read, and re-read show notes, therein!


So, in seeing how far I have come ( and seeing how much more I want to do) , I just want to tell anyone and everyone who is in the process of any project or endeavor to do one thing before ANYTHING and above all. 

And that is to "DO". 

Period. 

Not "To-Do"

To-Do lists are speculation. Conjecture. Musings. 

That is not action. 

And, thus, the only way to effectuate an action is to get your booty, brains, beauty, braun, or brilliance in motion

Please DO!

Happy Ta Ta Tuesday With The Other 49er


  “Perhaps one did not want to be loved so much as to be understood.”


If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stomping on your face----forever.”


If you want to keep a secret, you must also hide it from yourself.”

 
It's a beautiful thing, the destruction of words.”

Power is in tearing human minds to pieces and putting them together again in new shapes of your own choosing.”


'You're only a rebel from the waist down' , he told her.”

 
I enjoy talking to you. Your mind appeals to me. It resembles my own mind, except that you happen to be insane.”


An Ode To Orwellians,
Sandra LONDON
