Where’s Mikie?

February 24, 2015

600px-Astronaut-EVAYou know, I’ve been wondering that myself! After all, it’s been almost four months so you’d think that by now there would be a new show. Well, since I’m Mikie, I have the answer: I got sick, as in very sick, like you’d better drop everything and deal with this or … well, let’s not go there. Yup, we’ve been doing battle with, how can I put this, the “c” word. I’m confident that we’ll manage but it’s going to take a lot of effort.
So we’ve had to take a break but it won’t last forever (unlike me, ha! Sorry, cancer jokes are so tempting these days). I’m going to try to return this Spring when we get more information about the, you know, disease.
Just wanted to let you all know because I love you all and thought, since you’re listeners, you’d like to know.
I mean, we never really thought we’d last five years, the show that is (ba da boom, there’s another one!), but thanks to you, we’re still here (oh please, make it stop!).
So to all of you out there around the world, now’s a good time to catch up on your Mikie Show playlist; but don’t put it off for too long, we’ll be back with another show before you know it!
Thanks so much for your support.
Love and Peace,
Mikie

Fall

October 30, 2014

aspensI guess they call it that after the leaves falling. Most other places it’s some play on “harvest” (herfst in Dutch, for example). Not a lot falls in the desert where we are but we still say Fall. Probably easier than Autumn.

A lot happens in the Fall. Especially in this part of Fall when you get a new episode of The MIkie Show!

It’s true, all you have to do is click the first three words of the second paragraph to gently float down to a pile of leaves filled with top-notch entertainment! Thanks so much for your support!

Wandering

August 26, 2014

wandering tattlerYes, we all do it, including we here at The Mikie Show. Or is it we hear at The Mikie Show? No, then we’d have to add more like “we hear at The Mikie Show… that there’s a new episode of The Mikie Show hot off the presses!” Okay, no presses, nothing hot, really, but still, it’s here!

All you have to do is click on the highest temperature word in the third sentence and off you’ll wander where here isn’t that important! (in case you’re wondering, that’s a “wandering tattler”)

Whoo!

June 06, 2014

whooIt’s been a while since we talked. I mean posted. Talking is posting these days. Posting used to mean mailing something.

It’s inevitable, verbs change their meanings. Not by themselves, mind you, ha, a verb isn’t alive with a brain. Sheesh.

Predicates, too. “I went home” means what, exactly?

Okay, back to Whoo. What’s up with that headline? Doesn’t “whoo!” mean you’re happy? So we’re happy we haven’t talked?

No, we whoo not about being out of touch, we whoo about being back in touch! See, it’s a new meaning to touch but not whoo!

Phew.

And so to celebrate, we’ve posted a new episode of The Mikie Show that you can access with a click of a mouse (really?) or by using your touchscreen! Just click the fourth word of the fourth paragraph and you’ll happily find first-rate entertainment’s best new meaning: a new episode of The Mikie Show!

Just in case, to satisfy all that pent up yearning for more first-class entertainment, we’ve posted a new episode for you to bite into and lather all over yourself with and… uhm, sorry, just calmly click the best word in the first sentence and slowly link over to the creamy part of the internet.

Hidden Joke

March 11, 2014

GeocachingOkay, it’s not that hidden and, heck, not really that funny. So why bring it up? Well, because it’s kind of hidden and it’s sort of funny which makes it: trivia!

Yes, The Mikie Show behind-the-scenes trivia-wiki has a new entry! We can’t wait to tell so here it is: Notice in episode sixty-eight when Mikie and Claude head off to a stream in the woods? At the beginning, near the Railway Diner, Claude says he saw a rabbit and a dog. When, after a long drive, he and Mikie arrive at the stream, Mikie notices a rabbit and a beat later, there’s the sound of a dog barking. So kind of sort of hidden and funny. Yay trivia!

Thanks again for your support.

Why Am I Stabbing Myself In The Head!?

February 22, 2014

Inicio_projecaoOkay, okay, I’m not really stabbing myself in the head. I mean, the pointy end is pointing the wrong direction, see? I’m actually stabbing my otherness in the head. Not sure why my otherness is wearing shoes but no matter, I’m still here in the real world, unstabbed.

There is a point to all this (sorry): there’s a new episode of The Mikie Show just outside the ether, waiting for your psyche to absorb! All you have to do is click the first two words of this post to head on over there, shoeless or not!

Olympics!

February 08, 2014

Bobfahrer_DavosHi there. Just want to share our enthusiasm for the Olympic Games. It’s so much reality, so unpredictable, hurrah!

To help get you all in the mood we have a suggestion: click here to listen to episode eleven of The Mikie Show! In case you missed it, that episode we had the good fortune to interview two athletes from the Latvian Olympic track team. Turns out they train in our neighborhood during winter. We caught up with them prepping for the 2012 London Games. My favorite part was Dimitri’s description of what it feels like to enter the Olympic stadium with your country’s team during opening ceremonies (he represented Latvia in the 1500 meters in the 2008 Beijing games).

Okay, have a fun listen and and we hope you get to enjoy the winter games!Snowboarder
