'This American Life' on striving to be an "Everyday superhero"

From Google Chat
i get to salsa today among other stuff. workshop tonight. improv and scott pilgrim + new blogging
btw i read ur blog. i likey

or are you just being nice

its good.
only a small sample tho
u need more stuff.
i like the "how they don't think" at the beginning

yeah, looking to write 1 article per week

then i thought maybe why u i like animals is cuz they do cool shit w/out overthinking it like "shit i can fly"
like maybe you just like being a superhero minus the baggage of great responsibility = an animal

not really
i suppose the first part kind of
but i just find them fascinating
cos theyre so varied
all diferent shapes and sizes
variety is the spice

until ur blog i never realised that animals were so varied
its like comparing humans to all the mutants in the xmen. so much more than just distinctions between race, class etc...


must be kismet...
been wanting you to listen to 'this american life'...

yeah yeah ill get around to it one day

this weeks free mp3 -

Kelly McEvers with the story of Zora, a self-made superhero. From the time she was five, Zora had recurring dreams in which she was a 6'5" warrior queen who could fly and shoot lightning from her hands. She made a list of all the skills she would need to master if she wanted to actually become the superhero she dreamed of being. Sample items: Martial arts, evasive driving and bomb diffusion. She actually checked off most things on the list...and then had a run-in with the CIA. (16 minutes)
