my first three attempts at cooking
Meal #1:

Meal #2

Meal #3

 

Mon, 18 January 2010 podcast updates
A few updates, in case anyone was wondering: The Attic Enigmatic- This will return with episode 14. I've already recorded for it. Just gotta put it together. The Cinematic Attic- I have a plan to put this on a more frequent schedule (whatever that means). JJ and I are scheduling regular semi-weekly movie nights to view the type of films I'd talk about on the podcast. We plan to watch the movie and then record a conversation about it. In the meantime, I have material recorded for one or two episodes that just need put together. The Stereoplanetary Attic- Have another episode or two recorded. (Again) I just need to put it together.

 

Mon, 25 January 2010 more cooking ...and a bridge Meal #4

Meal #2 redux

Meal #3 practice

One lane blind bridge that I cross everyday

 

Tue, 23 February 2010 podcast news

Just a quick update on the podcasts: A lot of the new podcast ideas announced when this page began are on indefinate hold. Also, the postscript podcast companion for The Comic Book Attic is up in the air. I have, however, thought of two more podcast ideas that I would like to add to the list of potentials: Paperback Attic, a podcast spotlighting older, forgotten paperback genre novels, and VHSoteric, a podcast spotlighting obscure, perhaps forgotten films that have never seen a DVD release. ...And, yes, that second one doesn't have the word "attic" in it, but I couldn't resist the awesome "VHSoteric" name. The Cinematic Attic will be taking off, with episode -4 out now, and episodes 15-18 recorded and in need of editing. With episode 16 onward, JJ joins as co-host/sidekick.

Mon, 23 November 2009 chef mike
I have begun a new hobby... or is it an art? I have begun delving into the wild world of cooking. Might this lead to a podcast on the topic? Who knows. Meanwhile, stay tuned for some video of my first attempt at a full-on meal. It's never too late to try something new. What was my first foray into foodland? Well, I started with something simple. Something I've made parts of before. Something meat and potato-y. I made beef strips over couscous, with sides of mashed potatoes w/ gravy and corn. Also, I threw in some garlic bread twists. Yes, I know, I like my starches, and the bread may have been a touch out of place, but I wanted to give it a shot. Maybe I'll chronicle this stuff in re-tooled Attic Enigmatic podcast... Yeah, that sounds like a good idea...

radiohead!
Okay, apparently I've been under a rock somewhere because I just found out about this new free Radiohead track, downloadable from their website: http://www.waste.uk.com/Store/waste-radiohead-twisted+words.html Also, word is there's a new album out in 2010. Bated breath is mine...

Welcome

Welcome to a new podcast project by the lunatic responsible for The Comic Book Attic, The Cinematic Attic, The Stereoplanetary Attic, and The Attic Enigmatic. This page will host any and all podcasts that do not fit under the auspices of one of the above podcast pages. Here are some of the ideas for upcoming podcasts: Attic of the Unknown: a podcast about the unexplained. Attic of a Thousand Canvases: a podcast looking at works of art. The Attic of Forgotten Tales: a podcast reading and commentary of forgotten, public domain novels. The Attic Reading Room: a podcast about books. Attic Audio Theatre: a podcast playing old radio shows. Attic Web: a podcast about interesting and/or weird stuff found online.

announcement concerning this page and the Attic podcasts

I have had to rethink and restructure the podcasts I do in terms of cost and time. As of this writing, I have five libsyn accounts (including this one), and only one of them takes decent advantage of its account space. As libsyn prices go up and available time to record podcasts fluxuates, I've had to consider an alternative to the five account situation. The Attic of Babel was created to function as a place for many different podcasts that you could subscribe to separately through the splitfeed category option. This originally did not include podcasts that already had their own account pages. This will no longer be the case. With the exception of The Comic Book Attic (which will stay as it is, where it is), all other podcasts by me will be housed here at The Attic of Babel account site. Over the next couple months, I will be moving all content (episodes, blog entries, etc.) of The Cinematic Attic, The Attic Enigmatic, and The Stereoplanetary Attic here. They will reappear in the chronological order of their original posting date. Their original posting date will be noted, as well as all comments that were left on the original blogpages. When all content has been transferred from those three sites, the original blogpages and feeds will be deleted. When all is said and done, there will only be two libsyn account sites for Attic podcasts: The Comic Book Attic and this one. I apologize for any inconvenience. With luck, this will streamline and centralize my podcasts while saving me a bit of money in the process. Mike Pindell

Sat, 15 August 2009 all my podcasts are now on this page...
...except for The Comic Book Attic (which is still accessible from this page, however). All future episodes of all my podcasts, current and future, will appear on this Attic of Babel blogpage (except, again, The Comic Book Attic, which will retain its own page). To access podcast episodes of a particular title, click on the individual category links on the left side of this page. The Comic Book Attic link to the left will take you to a placeholder page that contains a link to The Comic Book Attic blogpage.

JJ shot this walk down a Brookline (Mass.) street where I almost lived. Nothing too exciting here; it is what it is...

Fri, 30 October 2009 podcast news In an effort to make The Attic of Babel even more a one-stop place for all my podcast and blog content, I will be doing two things: 1. Moving (a bit at a time) all The Comic Book Attic blog and podcast content here. This doesn't mean that the CBA page will go away, nor does it mean that the content will be deleted from the CBA page; I'm just going to back-up that content here. (Even if I wanted to combine the pages, there's soooo much content on the CBA site, it's going to take years to catch up with the present.) 2. Move the little content there is on the Fulton County Library podcast page over here as well, and then clone-post the new content here from now on. This podcast and blog content will probably not interest more than a local audience, but it's a podcast I do; therefore, it is included.
