1. Complaining with Kay, Episode 62: Special guest complaint half hour!

62: Special guest complaint half hour.

Michael Hardner complains about how Canadians view our healthcare system. Morgan Riley and I provide backchat and questions.  Lots of yelling with some constructive criticism.

Links of great interest:

The Lenihan (not Linehan) paper mentioned
–  CIHI

And, of course, the podcast.

2. The 48: Prelude and Fugue in A Minor.

I did it!  I finally did it!

This week: The Impossible Six Bars. There is no way this was written for a harpsichord or any keyboard instrument that doesn’t involve feet.

Editor’s note: Oops, looks like I forgot to make a post for the podcast…that came out on Monday. Sorry!

60: Stir-crazy.

– You know how people used to think fiction was bad for you? Maybe fiction is bad for you.
– I tried to keep telling myself “This is actually good! You don’t have to bullshit!”
– For some reason whenever there’s a deadline, that’s when your printer suddenly decides that it won’t print in black anymore.
– And I actually wrote that in my notes, with about 87 A’s.
– I think I need to read up on Rimbaud or get really blitzed on absinthe in order to understand it.
– If you’re an expert on Rimbaud: kaythecomplainer@gmail.com
– I’m running around like I’m trying to stop a submarine from exploding!

*Warning: Lots of swearing in this one*

– Hello!  I’m back!
– No excuse or anything, just feeling mutinous etc
– No big topic today, just me bitching
IN THIS ORDER:
– fucking weather
– fucking stomach flu (or whatever it was)
– fucking falling from my fucking bike

YES I KNOW THAT’S A LOT OF FUCK IN ONE PODCAST

– anyway, on a positive note: Doctor Who

BONUS: Every Second Counts

…Or how I learned to stop worrying and love Bach.

In this episode:

– HELLO HELLO HELLO HELLO.
– I wish I had an excuse for not podcasting for 5 months, but I don’t.
– I had a lovely time, while Toronto was turned into something…out of Robocop.
– People still think that it’s totally OK for the police to randomly arrest you, and if you ride a bicycle and you get killed that’s totally your fault.
– She could have had her wedding somewhere, I don’t know, like Sweden, but oh well.
– It might have been two bears, I don’t know.
– I drove there with my parents.  Like I’m TWELVE.
– Mostly we got underfoot and annoyed my sister, but it was fun.
– My sister’s cat still hates me, but that’s *fine*.
– So I did.  Well, I got really drunk on Jagermeister and decided I wanted to be a singer.  And the rest is, as they say, HISTORY.

Allow me to explain myself.

Clips from every show from 1-49, excluding the vodcasts and literary supplements (except for one).  If this is your first Complaining with Kay, I suggest listening to something else first.

Great thanks to all of you who listen, to Ben for creating and performing the theme.

Will be back next week with a regular episode.

Title stolen from George Hrab of the excellent Geologic podcast.

With a tear in me eye.

In this episode:
– There’s a weird kiosk that sells knock-off snuggies and blankets with Hannah Montana on them. No, really.
– A door is a very simple object. It either opens – or it doesn’t.
– There’s some mold growing on it, because IT’S A BATHROOM.
– The part of me that wants to be famous and successful and the part of me that actually wants to make music don’t have much to do with each other.
– You know what? I have no idea what these people want, and I’m just going to sing Caro Nome and, you know, actually enjoy actually making music. What a surprise.
– Nick and Nora: Just like Dashiell Hammet and Lillian Helman, except a comedy.

Me and Ben play Somewhere There (Leftover Daylight series) this Friday, Feb. 12.

In this episode:

– Just believing in a conspiracy doesn’t make you a jackass. It makes you WRONG, maybe in need of doing some more research, but not an asshole.
– I translated all his emails into LOLspeak.
– This was one of the worst pieces of music I’ve heard in a long time. And I LIKE R. Murray Schafer.
– They have for some reason decided that R. Murray Schafer is bankable.
– The orchestra is like a top predator, like the T-Rex of the musical ecosystem. And we’re like the small proto-mammals that can survive after the comet hits.
– Here’s an idea: STOP PAYING TOM CRUISE SO GODDAMN MUCH.
