Watch Me Entertain Myself!

Sacha Guitry once said, "You can pretend to be serious, but you can't pretend to be witty." Oh yes, I'm the great pretender.

The Loneliness Fabcast, Parts One & Two

“My loneliness is killing me...” sang Britney Spears. And so, ooops! The Fabcasters did it again. We decided to record a Fabcast on the topic of loneliness.

Every year the Christmas season brings with it cold winds and even colder emotions. Christmas seems to be the time to swallow (all that food) and wallow (in all that emo-ness). This year is no different. As early as November Migs noticed an increase in letter senders bemoaning their lonely status for Christmas. Even a local commercial made use of the term SMP (Samahan ng mga Malamig ang Pasko). And while we rarely hear about it, an increase in depression and suicide is often recorded in December.

So as a fitting end to 2010, the Fabcasters gathered once more to record a two-part series.

Due to technical difficulties encountered by yours truly, the production of this particular Fabcast was not done using the usual equipment, from recording to editing. Also, the period in between Christmas and New Year was a very busy one for me. These would partially explain why there was a considerable delay in the release of the second and last part.

This is why I decided to just post both parts here at the same time. Those who (for some weird reason or another) just check out the Fabcasts only through my blog (why, I have no idea!) will be able to download and listen to the two-parter without experiencing considerable delay in between parts.
