Me Explaining the Point of Dead Air Podcast [dawt] tumblr [dawt] com
me:go to http://deadairpodcast.tumblr.com
Megan:i don't get your dead air podcast
Megan:it's just white noise, right?
me:yes, like its gonna be a hundred episodes of just static, its ridiculous
Megan:you're making it?
me:yes, an exercise in futility
Megan:why are you doing that? I truly don't get it
me:OK, 1) on top of the bizarre/ insane idea of hundreds of episodes of static that it is predicated upon, the FUNNY PART/ VALUE is the elaborate nonsense description of what the episode is about...
ok- let me read that
oh- that's funny
me:2) i am inverting why you would subscribe to a podcast, using it for an entirely diferent purpose than audio, the interesting part is the blurb, not the audio, so people sign up to read the blurb, not to listen
Megan:oh, got it
me:it is an experiment in turning a tool on its head, using it for an entirely different purpose than for what it was intended, 1 part guerilla 2 parts absurd 4 parts nonsense 8 parts insanity 12 to the nth degree parts ridiculousness
