Communication Breakdown – Episode 29: Marriage Equality

MarriageFeatured

Episode 29 of the podcast is live. This one starts out on an odd note: I swallow a gnat during the opening seconds. I begin talking and see a gnat fly around my face. I breathe in and the gnat gets sucked into my mouth and down my throat.

The big topic this week is about marriage equality. The LGBTQQA crowd can now legally get married in the state of West Virginia. I give my thoughts on marriage and look at this. Then I read a list of people’s Facebook comments they posted. There’s some ignorance there.

I give a status update on the next B-Sides book in my series and when I should be publishing volume two. I announce the stories that I have queued up for volume two and let you know which ones are finished and which aren’t.

And that’s everything for this week. Episode 30 is coming up, and I’ll try to have something special planned for that interesting number. If you have any questions, comments, concerns, etc about the podcast feel free to let me know.

EGreen Goes Face2Face in New Album

E Green WV Rap Face2Face

As a musician, you rarely get to witness the progression of another musician’s project from start to finish. Hashing out the concept for the album, the track selection, and recording the tracks are all processes that usually occur behind the scenes. If you work with the artist directly you may be able to piece together what’s going on, but most of the time the journey will be traveled by the artist alone. I’m very fortunate as a part-time writer/part-time musician because I get to see the best of both worlds; I’m able to see the journey other artists go through so I can gain a greater appreciation of their art and struggle.
