L ong ago, back in the ancient mists of time, my 1.09 acres of property was (somewhat) well landscaped and looked pretty damn good considering this is the middle of nowhere and it doesn't really matter.

In recent years, I've been quite ill and let it all go straight to hell as I hadn't the energy to look after it or the cash to get ripped off by landscapers.

Now the dump is full of out of control 'junk' trees & vines - Ack! The bastard vines! - and now I need to rip it the hell apart to get it looking decent again. Even the decorative trees & shrubs are overgrown or worse - entangled in the aforementioned prickly vines which will rip the skin off your hand if given half a chance, so thick gloves are required for all of this.

Every day that it's not raining, I go out there and retake control of a small portion of my land from the arboreal menace (after having torn the goddamn vines off of the house first) & end each day entirely exhausted. This is the first time in a couple of years I've been well enough to do it, so you "do what you can with what you have where you are."

That's the title of MMH-225. Why is that show still not recorded/posted? Because of the goddamn arboreal menace, that's why! I need to move my ass and get this godawful yard drudgery done before my health goes south again.

The other day, it rained and I took the opportunity to nail down the bgm I want to use for the show and updated the script a bit. Realistically, the podcast (MMP-51) is likely to be made first if I'm going to be as exhausted from hauling around massive tree branches as I am right now every day.


In slightly more positive news, it's time once again to see if anyone's left on the site who reads this drivel. I do this occasionally - just because.

So if you're still with me here, I want to pose a question. One of the shows to be completed (it doesn't matter which one) is written to be hosted by one of my vampire characters - or an entirely new one. If anyone listens to the shows, they'll be familiar with them and can suggest which vampire should host - or if I should just say screw it and host them both myself.

If I get a response to this, the shows will be recorded that much sooner. If not, I'm going to go full on Rambo against the arboreal menace and complete the landscaping first...and maybe wash some of these windows; they're kind of filthy. And the outside window trim needs painting again....

Well, you get the idea.
