I don’t know you anymore

I don’t know you anymore

By Darren Weeks The crashing waves toss your life about You chose the tempest, shunned the harbor’s safe route A stubborn heart in a sea of lies A myriad choices that prove unwise Yelling, screaming, slamming of doors Hurtful words rip the soul like sores Betrayal of trust, unrepentant, unmoored I don’t know you any…

It’s Hard to Be Asleep

It’s Hard to Be Asleep

The enemies of truth and freedom are fighting hard to keep our voices squelched. The truth is that we are killing their ability to lie to, and deceive the public with impunity. They are constantly having to do damage control and new innovations in false story-telling to try to pull the wool over the eyes…

A Society of Humping Dogs

A Society of Humping Dogs

I can’t remember ever praying for a white Christmas. I’m not saying that it never happened; I just don’t recall it. Perhaps, I might have done so, once or twice, in my youth, when I was fervently hoping in vain that our local superintendent would cancel classes for the day. As an adult with a…

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving

A lot has happened since my last entry. I have not had a whole lot of time to do a lot of writing, or much else. There are so many things happening at a rapid pace that I can scarcely keep up. Work has been extremely busy, lately. I have been trying to deal with…

Processing for Remotes

Processing for Remotes

In my last entry, I talked about my desire to locate a decent audio processor to normalize the dynamic range of the audio for my remote broadcasts. I use a somewhat aggressive audio processing scheme. I am aware that there are people who listen to the broadcast through headphones on portable devices. You don’t want…

Taking the Show on the Road

Taking the Show on the Road

I have long wanted to be equipped to easily do Govern America from any location, and on short notice. My intention is to be able to have a couple of bags of studio equipment that I can grab and go. Think of a “bug out” bag, only for remote radio broadcasting. Originally, I thought I…

Darren Doin’s

I finally got my motorhome winterized. I’ve been trying not to procrastinate it, even though I’ve been dreading it because it is kind of a big job. It is really important to get it done right. In theory, it’s pretty simple. In practice, it’s a lot of back and forth, inside and outside the unit.…

Closing Time

Closing Time

I have a painting over my fireplace by Mark Daehlin, entitled “Closing Time”. It features an old man and children, standing next to a river, raking leaves. The grandson and dog are on a small dock next to a boat, the boy pointing up at the sky as birds fly south for the winter. The…

Creature of the Night

Creature of the Night

Being a solitary person, I’ve always been somewhat of a night owl. I enjoy the nighttime and the peace and quiet that it affords to focus my thoughts on reading, research, reflection and rejuvenation. Daily, I see people who get lost in the hustle and bustle of their routines and they are trapped in these…

Content Management Platforms

Content Management Platforms

I was a latecomer to the world of content management systems. I used to always hand-code everything with a text editor and would spend hours trying to figure out why my cascading style sheets, javascript, CGI and perl scripts wouldn’t do exactly what I wanted them to do. I’d bang on them, get frustrated, give…

Rebirth of a Journey

Rebirth of a Journey

I decided to relaunch this website after several years because I needed a place to hash out ideas on a variety of subjects, separate from my Govern America website. That site is focused on political and governmental issues affecting our country. I felt the need to have a place where I could write on a…
