Processpod 006: It's my 52nd this coming week!
A short one, some thoughts and a few bits of field recording from the Tam-Tams!
OPPSE! Forgot the podcast for this podcast! Fixed now, sorry for all the folks who get the version without it in email?
That’s a picture of me around 8 I think? Not sure, school photos. And, me from this summer sporting a new hat. Turning 52 on the 15th of September! Hope you dig the drums at the start and end, those are from the field recordings I did a few weeks back, mentioned in a previous processpod.
I didn't have something singular and specific to talk about, ramble a bit about the week's headlines, and my upcoming birthday. And things I want to remember to get done! Sort of but not exactly an accountability check in. I'll probably take next week off because of said birthday, if you want to wish me a happy one leave an audio message of that on Anchor! :D I’ll edit them into the next episode I put out. That would be fun.
I mention Rochdale College, here’s some links! I have a site where I had started to archive documents from my fathers papers from there, it’s here. Not a lot up but a few things! You can read about it here on Wikipedia, there’s this doc about it, Lionel is in it! I have a clip of that up here, it’s the second bit after the bit from an old David Cronenberg movie. Yep, my father was made into a fictional character in that. Here’s an article in the Star about Rochdale, The Globe here, there was a play? Never saw that. Toronto Public Library article, there’s an old TV show talking about it shortly after it closed here from TVO. A fun old CBC radio doc here with some voices I remember from my childhood!
There’s a ton more if you go looking for it, but that’s more than enough to get one started!
Here’s a screen cap of the tones I’ve been working on slowly, between naps.
