Past And Present

I know on Thursday's you've come to expect something personal. This week won't be that much different. The only real difference is that I'll be talking about it instead of writing about it. That's right folks it's time for my third podcast. Which was technically my second but then EA went all EA. So this was pushed back into this week. The topic this time is changing things in my past, and how I wouldn't do it. I have one more idea for a podcast, which is I'm finally going to get around to talking randomly for Bersercules. For now though here's this weeks, and as always more ideas are always appreciated.






Also again, as per usual, should it not work you can find it at http://ramblingperson.podbean.com/2012/03/08/past-and-present/

  1. You sound blue, and a little frustrated in the recording.
    Whenever I regret something, I just go in and correct it. I've been doing a lot of that lately.

    1. I sound blue and frustrated a lot. Probably because I feel it a lot. I try to correct my mistakes but some just can't be corrected. At least not by you.

  3. Very nice. You actually didn't sound too blue, just not excited. Your accent and voice are amazing so that helps. Overall, enjoyed it immensely!

    1. I'm not sure it's possible for me to sound excited.

  4. There's a lot of wisdom in this podcast. Like the thing about, just keep going in life and you will find the answer. I just was thinking about that the other day when I was moping around, then I realized "just keep moving, just keep moving"...it seems the only way to cheer one self up. Also, I guess there is even a scientific explanation for it, as if you are literally moving your serotonin level goes up. And also the point you made about,...now I am probably paraphrasing...life never can give you more than you can handle, because if it does life just stops... I never really thought of it that way before, because I was always afraid life would give me more than I could handle. I would much prefer to just coast in life for awhile rather than try to plow through adversity. Though the times I seemed to be barely hangin' on were extremely unpleasant and mostly "humiliating" is the word I would use, apparently I survived them, as I am still here typing.

    1. Hey I'm not sure I've ever been paraphrased before. I've only been quoted a few times. It's a nice feeling. I don't think life can ever give you more than you can handle, most people are stronger than they ever give themselves credit for. It can be okay to just coast for a while but don't get too comfortable, don't stay like that for too long. Recovery periods are necessary but so is living. You got through and survived and you still can.

  5. This is the first time I've stumbled upon your blog. Well said, but don't default to "meh" too often!

    1. There is something very evil about neutrality, that is for sure.

  6. I would've been interested in your secret-secret love story. If you really don't want to share it, then don't though.
    Social media are a great tool for uniting people. For big stuff (Kony stuff) or small things (reuniting with people, like you did).
    You seem to have quite a few stories you won't ever tell anyone. Why is that?
    But yeah, I told you before, be happy with your past, it made you who you are today! (Also, don't have hope. Have trust. Works so much better.)
    I'd buy a Mark action figure! :D

    1. Honestly I consider reuniting with Jessie way bigger than Kony, but various other movements have been bigger than that. There are a few reasons why, but mostly it's that some are just too personal.

  7. The past sometimes defines you and makes you what you are but not always in a good way regardless.....good ramble though!

    1. It isn't always in a good way no, but it's there and we have to live with it.

  8. Agreed. The past has a way of tripping up the future.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Without our pasts, we can't learn for the future. Instead of dwelling on the past, worry about what you CAN change in the future. That's my motto, anyway, so well said! I definitely agree with you.

    1. And I agree with you on that there.

  11. I've always wanted to launch my own podcast.

  12. the past is who made us what we are today! bad or good, it got you where you are today so I wouldn't change it either if I had the chance.

  13. I am a fan of anything powered by podbean

  14. I'll try and give this a listen when I'm not in class.

  15. That opening line was great. You were only a finger's breadth away from playing it off perfectly before you broke off and felt awkward.

    Almost there, my friend. Almost.

    1. In my defense I was talking about slightly depressing topics. If I had something fun to talk about or happy then I'd probably be all exuberant.

  16. I'm so sorry that I can't comment on your podcast today, as my time and connection are very limited. I will attempt to download the podcast, listen, and get back with you when I can. I hope this week is going to be great for you.

    1. You can keep on hoping. It hasn't been so far, and I don't really see it getting much better. I hope you enjoy it when you get around to listening.

  17. I went through a bad break up when my GF of some 5 years went off with my best friend... and then like a dumb f'*k I took her back a year later... un-surprisingly, and obvious to everyone else, it didn't work out the second time either.
    But through the pain comes learning and through learning comes a better life.

    Personally I never regret anything...
    But if I had my life again - I'd change everything ;) why do it all the same?

    1. Well that is a good point I hadn't considered. I'm a stickler for doing things differently. As long as you learnt the second time it didn't work, it's alright. We don't always get things the first time.

      Delete
  18. Well, the past is really what shaped you to become the person you are today. So I agree, I wouldn't want to change my past.

  19. lol "penetration"...with a voice as calm, soothing, and British as yours that just lacks a lot of threat.

    I mean when I say I'm gonna penetrate your ears, most people lube up their earholes and get ready for deafness, shivering like chihuahuas. Of course I'm apparently intimidating as hell when I don't mean to be, so there's that.

    Anyway, good to hear from ya again~!

    1. Well that was the reaction I was aiming for.

  20. Damn it Mark! You are too wise and mysterious or me to handle!

    The past is the past and there is nothing that can fix that. Except alcohol, because after one kills enough brain cells, one finds it difficult to process thunks. I thunk once. It hurted my brain cells too bad, so I hurried back to the bottle to drown my sorrow. Drinking is a terrible coping mechanism, btw.

    I feel like you should tell the stories you allude to. Not only so we can look into the enigma that is your mind, but also so you can properly move on. Shit is shit, but we bros, bro.

    1. I'm not that much of an enigma. Beer doesn't really kill your brain cells that much, I'm not sure you can actually drink your memories away. Which is a shame because right now I could do with needing it. I am over them, mostly, it's just things I really don't want to share.

  21. We can't change our past but we can do something in our future. That's what I've learned. :) Nice topic! I clearly hear you.

    1. Well at the same time don't worry about the future sooner or later it's the past.

  22. THE best going away gift. Thank you sir.

    Lol you could try a posh Earl Grey accent. That would make my god damn day.

    1. Despite being able to pull some accents, I'm not sure how well I would handle a posh one.

  24. HOLY COW!! How did I not see this podcase when it came out!! You need... NEED! to email me when I forget to watch/comment on one of your podcasts!!

    Yes! Life is the problem and the solution! Keep on rockin' in the free world! And if your gonna burn in hell (if there is a hell) lets hang out in hell together!!

    I agree, no reason to change the past, everything makes you who you are... and even if you would wanna change the past, you couldn't anyway. Glad to hear your moving on and looking on the brightside of life!!

    I don't hope- I know! Things will get better for you!

    (yay! I'm still listening!)

    You sound enthousiactic in your meh! (My action figure talks but doesn't have kungfo grip!... he just sits and doesn't move... but he does have a penis... maybe he should have kungfu grip!... you know for his... you know...)

    (and at the begining of the podcase the line you use was quite funny and seemed like it was you talking uncencored! Thats how you should always be! stream of conscience!!)

    1. I have one coming up tomorrow you're going to just love. They have a seat saved for me in Hell. The Devil's.

      I don't think I'm ever all that likely to really move on and look at the bright side but for now I do accept the things I said here. I never listen to myself anyway.

      Kung fu grip is overrated, karate chop action is where it's at. Though I suppose with the right application of karate chop action you could still get the desired effect. I'm always uncensored in my blogs, I've occasionally swore and I've made a few dirty jokes. Usually right at the start of the podcast.

    2. I ment uncencored like saying what you want with no stoping your self, not swearing in discriminently like a mad man!

      Can't wait for tomorow!

      Delete
  25. But I am a mad man! I get what you mean though, it's just me being me, but I don't think that was really me being me.
