A Curious Cocktail

The best things are often a mix of something old and new.  A familiar, tried-and-true flavor with a fresh twist.

That’s kind of our dynamic:

We’ve got a experienced bartender and man-of-world putting together a podcast to enlighten, to entertain, to sate the masses. He’s seen things, he’s read things, he’s learned things.  And Bar None is the culmination of this man’s journey.  He’s the old favorite, the sure bet, the classic.

The making of Bar None is the start of my own.  A jack-of-all-trades by nature, nurtured on by the most addictive spirit of curiosity, I am crafting a world around this podcast.  While his job is to craft the firewater, mine, dear horses, is to bring you to it.  Years of experience in theatre and education, sales and marketing, fundraising and networking, have led me to this point: a wild and fresh frontier on the rolling audio waves.  I’m the wildcard.

He’s an old hand, and expert and a craftsman.  I’m more the travelling salesman, armed with my charm, my wits, and my will.

 And this time, I think I’m finally peddling something more than snakeoil:  I’m peddling gold.

We’re mixing this thing now, but when the order’s up, I think you’ll like what we have to serve you.


Better by a Site

So we’re playing a bit fast and loose here.

The last site we had was… well it looked kind of… I mean…

It looked like an early 90’s website.

Boo hiss.

And we’re not about the early 90’s.  Well, not the 1990’s.  Not yet, anyway.

So we’re still mixing up the medicine (the tune in my head goes to Chumbawumba)

Here’s the deal.  I’ve spent the last two hours playing around on weebly, on wix, on wordpress, and frankly, I like wordpress best so far.

Not just because it’s my roots.

Not just because it uploads images without crashing (weebly!).

Not just because it links to social media automatically (wix!)

Not just because it lets me post from my phone (wix again!)

But because it just looks better with my photos.

So far it’s been the best site to show off our upcoming podcast on. Bar None.

So tell me, midnight readers… what are your thoughts on the various platforms?
