How's everybody doin' today? Obviously, it's the start of a brand-new week, and -- just like January 1st is the beginning of a whole new year -- I hope you can treat today similarly: reach out and seize the day, make it your own, tame the beast, and run with it!
OK, on the business ...
As I said somewheres in this space earlier this year, I'm trying to up the MainPage posts through a variety of means, one of which is to give 'SciFi ShoutOuts' to like-minded folks. In some respects this means I'll be giving props to folks in SciFi, Fantasy, and Horror, but I've always tried to remind readers that I consider myself a bit eclectic, I have interests beyond genre projects, and I encourage everyone to do the same.
In the last few weeks, I've found myself part of a circle of peeps on the ol' Twitter who've been doing their best to promote podcasts. Again, these recommendations are not limited to any particular type of programming but they're willing to push and promote darn near anything ... and that's anything in a good way, not corrosive or corrupt. Though I don't pod as do others, I have gained a handful of new followers from such exposure, and I've decided to return the favor in the way that I did ... that being SciFi ShoutOuts.
This morning, I gave my first listen to the 'cast 'This Blonde Can Talk About Anything' put out by Mellanie (yes, with two L's but maybe I have the other letters wrong). She opined about the entire Will Smith situation at the Oscars, making her obviously trendy (a good thing), giving it her own moral and cultural spin (again, a good examination); and I thought she presented her arguments in a relatable and cogent way. Anyone willing to step up to the microphone with a desire to present entertainment news with a perspective -- open and honest -- deserves a bit of discovery (so far as this knucklehead is concerned). I decided to give her a ShoutOut for SciFiHistory.Net's readers.
I found her program with here. Any and all readers are encourated to check her out.
As always, thanks for reading ... and live long and prosper!
