  Stormy Weather
Powered by audblogaudblog audio post

We're about 75 miles East of Albuquerque (I did that without spellcheck. Check me out!), and I'm watching a thunderstorm off to the North of us. I'm happy with how this post turned out, but I wish I'd been a bit more descriptive of the colors in the sky: dull grey to angry black clouds raced across a sky that was painted pink and turquoise by the setting sun.

I wanted to talk about the cool Maize Maze that we drove past, but TMBG came on, and I needed to sing. I'm sure you understand.

My voice sounds really exhausted, as Anne and I begin the voyage home. This post is pretty long, and not all that interesting, so skip it if you're on dial-up.

  Bringing down the house

As I begin to report from the con, the crowd of about 10,000 people errupts into applause for Shatner and Nimoy.

  Take me out to the ballgame
Powered by audblogaudblog audio post

I recorded this about five minutes after walking off the mound at a Tulsa Drillers game. Yes, I threw a strike. Yes, it was thrown from the mound. Yes, I loved every moment of it.
  The Cherokee Restaurant

We were going to stop at Subway (there is one about every 22 feet between Los Angeles and Tulsa), but traded mass-market fast food for a made-to-order family restaurant.

It made all the difference.
  From the Cadillac Ranch

Just outside Amarillo, Texas, there are Cadillacs "planted" in a field. Our visit occurred just a few days after the death of the artist who planted them.

  Cuervo, New Mexico
Powered by audblogaudblog audio post

Talk about a ghost town . . . Cuervo, New Mexico was once a stop on Route 66. When Interstate 40 cut though the middle of town, everyone just up and left.

I'm not entirely happy with the content of this post, which represents my third effort. The first one was good, but too damn windy. The second one was just lame, and the third one (the one you hear) is what I call "just get it done and walk away."

In this post, I tell you that lousy audio is not audio blog's fault, and make a promise to talk about OnStar, that I don't keep.
  Day 2 -- Williams to Albuquerque
Powered by audblogaudblog audio post

I recorded this from the parking lot at Einsten Brothers Bagels, across the street from University of New Mexico. It's REALLY long. Dial-up, or the easily bored beware.
  Albe -- Albukwru -- Albuquerque
Greetings from Albu -- the hardest city to spell in the world.

We drove in yesterday afternoon, right after they re-opened I40, which had been closed due to a big and scary fire.

We saw amazing sites yesterday, and they will all be in the audio post that will end up above this post.

Oh! Check it out! The guys from Audblog hooked me up with a PREMIUM account, so I can post longer and more often. Expect several posts today, while we are driving across teh great nothingness of the Texas Panhandle.

  Greetings from Flagstaff
Powered by audblogaudblog audio post

I recorded this from the parking lot of a Mobil station in Flagstaff, AZ. Tune in to hear about our drive across the California and Arizona deserts.

  now hear this!

Because I intend to record them from the road, most of the audio blog posts I make will not have nice little words like these to accompany them. Maybe someone will listen to them, and post a title or summary in his / her / its own blog?

This post is really just so I can get a handle on how the technology works. I don't say anything important in it at all, but I understand that if you play it backwards, and say Bloody Mary thirteen times in a mirror, the kid from Life cereal will blow up.

And if you're wondering why this is at blogspot, and not WWdN, it's because I wasn't able to get blogger to publish via sftp correctly. When I have some free time, I'll set it up, and this page will display on WWdN.
Welcome to the WWdN Audio Weblog. Using the Great and Powerful Audblog technology, I can use my mighty voice to terrify and amuse you. But mostly there will only be content here when I'm on the road, or until we exceed our bandwidth.
