Greetings!


and welcome to an extra quick edition of Marko's Fuzzy Friday Open Thread for the Street Prophets group. A certain Favorite Female of mine would like to steal the computer to watch "Pride and Prejudice" so I'll just share an update with you regarding what's on my drawing table this week and ask you a question...

I like to listen to podcasts while I draw. Video is too distracting but podcasts and online radio seem to allow my ears to play while my eyes concentrate on my drawing.

Other than a couple dozen pages of sketches, thumbnail page layouts, character studies and so on for a graphic novel I'm slowly beginning to create I found some time to work on my meticulously crosshatched croquil (crow-quill) dragon drawing.

All that fiddly line work while listening to:

The Dead Authors Podcast
This American Life
Wait, Wait... Don't Tell Me!
How to do Everything

And there are a few others that I wander off to occasionally, like BBC Radio 4 and Daily Kos Radio.

And then there's...

Fresh Air
WTF with Marc Maron Podcast

...which I tend to binge on and then forget about for a few months.

Do you listen to any podcasts? online radio? any of that vast realm of streaming audio content out there caught in the interwebs?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
