Segarini: A DIFFERENT Kind of Column

The Bobcast Bob May 6th 2013 CroppedI have been thinking about trying this experiment for a couple of months. Proving once again that I have some sort of idiotic desire to make more work for myself than is necessary.

As usual, in theory, this looked like a good idea…in reality, it turned out to be a difficult, work-centric, time consuming exercise in frustration. This was not just 2 finger typing and adding pictures and links. This involved pictures, a stopwatch, a calculator, a pen and paper, and a goodly supply of patience, bourbon, and gumption.


The sad thing is, I know at least a dozen people who could do what I did in less time than it takes to type this sentence, AND do it MUCH better.

I will be looking for someone to do just that the next time I get a hair up my arse to do this again.

I won’t bore you with the details right now, and the bells and whistles (pictures with some observations, a few links, and maybe a nice gif of a kitten or Kate Upton) will be added later. I’ll post an update when they are.

But here, in all its slightly-out-of-sync  glory is my latest column…with a difference. Instead of reading it, you can listen to it and watch it. The link below is the only way you can get to it. It is unlisted on the net, but feel free to share the link with anyone you think might enjoy it. It is crude, a bit wonky, and should have a ton more visuals added to it, but you will get the idea. Of course, putting together a video crew might make a hell of a lot more sense, but I like the home-made feel of this.


The audio-only of this will be available in about a week, slightly longer and in its usual place on the internet. For the time being, however, this is the only way you can access it.

I hope you enjoy this experiment, and I would appreciate any comments you would like to share about it. Next week, I will update this ‘column’ and share your comments with the class.
