Don't Discount Omarosa - Carl Blare 180814 The
white people's code for discounting women and black people includes the
"bad review" (disgruntled employee, etc.) and the general public falls
for it even while priding themselves in being non-racist; non
misogynistic. The louder the "superior" white bosses defame the
black/female the more likely it is she's being honest. Plus Omarosa's
book has a clever title.
We'll be reviewing "Unhinged" following what offers to be a pleasant read, and then we'll follow up.

Worship - 180808_4:04 PM CDT The
phenomenon called "worship" is another piece of why religion seems
ludicrous. Children grow up with the ridiculous story about God's need
for being worshipped. Millions in Sunday church outwardly demonstrate
their "worship" of the no-show called "God".
I have been
worshipped, and got to thinking about which ordinary mortals qualify to
attract such reverance, and that's what I'm writing about.
humanity's general social pool romance, heroism, fame and beauty are prone
toward occasional adulation. A few of us manage to qualify in more than
one category. For example, radio, TV and movie personalities are
worship magnets, together with musical artists. Being visibly
recognized determines the frequency and quantity of fans, an
abreviation for fanatics. Radio hosts are protected from too much
recognition so long as their photograph has not been put on billboards.
like Donald Trump are worship self-starters but sustainance eventually
requires an added boost of greater and greater public recognition and
much energy is spent tabulating the numbers.
poses a management problem when, say, a woman falls in love but
triggers no reciprical emotion, over which many men leave town with no
forwarding address. Or visa-versa, gender wise, except that these days
a simple #METOO declaration can flip the matter of who ends up leaving
Therefore being the object of worship is like any other
human "achievement", it has benefits and penalties. It's something you
end up wearing like clothing. You'd feel incomplete without it. __________________________________________________ Tuesday August 7, 2018

When a Studio is a Pod - 180805_10 PM CDT Radio
broadcasts and recordings have been done in studios since the beginning
of time, a special room set aside for studious undertakings. At KDX our
studio couch has stories to tell, but meanwhile, across the street...
Podcasters operate from pods, which Wiktionary's Definition 5 calls: A small section of a larger office, compartmentalised for a specific purpose.
radio programs and podcasts are technically the same thing, so we best
accept the fact that studios are interchangeable with pods.

Top of the Month - 180804_5:39 PM CDT As
The Blare Blog moves into its second month we are very concerned about
our numerous radio friends in Northern California, now being scorched
by historic wildfires. This afternoon we began relaying Fire Updates
from KZYX in Philo, a station near the worst of the burning, with new
mandatory evacuation orders being announced for several locations.
the same time wildfires continue in Oregon, Washington, Arizona and
Colorado, as well as European fires, fueled by extreme heat and drought
conditions in the northern hemisphere.
