CNQ Podcast Is Ending...A Blog Hiatus...And Don't Forget to Vote...

After 45 episodes, I've decided to put the podcast to sleep. You can still listen and download the shows on iTunes until the end of October, but they'll disappear at the first of November. It was a fun thing to do --essentially it was pirate radio. Thanks to everyone who listened and to all the bands and musicians who let me play their songs.

I'll probably decide to do another one down the road -- if/when I do, I'll post it to Mixcloud, I suspect, and share that link here and over on the Facebook page. Go follow CNQ on Facebook, if you're not already. How cool would it be if you did.

Meanwhile I'm going to put the blog on hiatus as well. I'd like to turn CNQ into more than just a music blog, and post about my other interests -- my shitty music project Occult Character, conversations about the weather, Madballs, headlines I saw but didn't read the article, lawn gnomes, etc. And maybe try to sell some of the paintings I've been doing here too. I've got a lot of paintings all of a sudden. I work in volume.

My thoughts are with anyone and everyone affected by the hateful word-vomit of our current President, and/or the hurtful policies of the administration. That orange demagogue's rhetoric is directly responsible for the Pittsburg massacre, the pipe bombs, the Kentucky grocery shootings, as well as countless other hateful acts of crime and violence. And if you voted for him, you're culpable for all this as well. What did you think would happen? And how do you sleep at night.

To all I say: stay safe, and, if you know as I do that this unstable circus peanut in an over-sized suit, the administration, and the Republican Party at large is absolutely unsafe for the stability of our Republic and the world at large, then please vote. I'm certain the two-party system is wrong, rigged, and needs to change, but for right now, there is a clear "lesser of two evils" situation and we can convert to Full Communism (or Full Collective Anarchism, or what-have-you) down the road. Maybe after the Singularity. For right now, I encourage you to just vote on whoever will place a check on Trump and his Republican sycophants.
