Audible Radio vs Silent Pantomime

Radio is based on audible speech, without sight. But in-person communication is based on sight-driven mumbles, pantomime, mimicking, silent-laughter, and lip-reading. And when you put in-person people back-to-back, those who can audibly hear the others in the same room are the winners.

How do you reconcile the audible world of mass-communication radio mentors, versus the silent communication world of in-person communication?

WYAY Re-Launches Career

—– Social Media means actually calling television, cable, radio, or other broadcasting venues to present your opinion or to hear theirs.  [Donate to KeepYourHouse].

—– So Newsradio1067fm WYAY let me on twice this month, once on 12Aug2016 and again on 26Aug2016. I was flattered and did well, for those 2 individual short 15-30 second call-in spots. That’s a total of about 45 seconds, if that.  But I passed my Social Media goals for Aug2016, while I’m passing my Social Security goals in the 2020s. Please recall my inventions and initiatives: (1) Save The Caller, (1) Sympathetic Broadcasting, (1) Sympathetic Listening, and (1) Media Is The Mentor.  I’m not leveraging for a job; I just do this for fun, because it’s social media.  [Donate to KeepYourHouse].

—– And thanks again to the hosts and operators of WYAY. Their anchor shows are [It’s Only] The Kimmer Show in the afternoons, and The Shannon Burke Show in the mornings.  The hosts just asked,”All that for just 45 seconds?”  Watch out for Johnny Ho; that’s an inside joke. [Donate to KeepYourHouse].

—– Previously, I had two-months of airing 3-5 minutes a week on WGST’s THE COMPUTER DOCTOR SHOW, as The Gamemeister in the 1990s.  My in-person in-studio bit was terrible, although I enjoyed it.  And it was a great learning experience for me, although it was largely forgettable.  I think the host did everybody a favor, when he told me we were done.  I did it for free, and without complaint, and I’m still not complaining.  And I continue trying to forget those short bits, in jest.  [Donate to KeepYourHouse].

—– And I continue interviewing for my real gig, of either a cashier position or a delivery driver position.  Yes I actually AM interviewing F2F and P2P for those jobs, ask around.  And I leave promptly before incurring a Disturbing The Peace citation, ask around about that also.  And thanks again for the ride, WYAY.  [Donate to KeepYourHouse].

Louisiana Flood. 20Aug2016, Saturday

—– Louisiana flooding. —- Contractors and builders are known for making great foundations, great footers and wonderful pylons. I’ll agree that the solutions are sometimes expensive, but they are cheaper than rebuilding houses in known flood-zones. Knowledgeable people will agree that the entire state of Louisiana might be a flood-plain. I say that without buying a FEMA map. So call your local builder, ask them questions, and get a bid to make your house flood-proof. There’s no reason to just move out of Louisiana just because of a flood. Build your KeepYourHouse better with the help of a contractor, so you can Keep Your House. And yes, you can see the next one coming. Donate to KeepYourHouse. [Donate online to KeepYourHouse]

—– I use IHeartRadio, to see if my KeepYourHouse efforts are being used. I use that more than a regular AM/FM radio. And when I go to sleep, I just turn the sound off, so I’m still listening overnight, although I’m really not listening overnight. And sometimes in the grocery store, I turn the sound off. And sometimes at different times of the day I turn the sound off. Okay, I regularly listen to iHeartRadio with the sound off, so I’m on all day long. [Donate online to KeepYourHouse]

Brother Gives Brother Three Employment

—– I’m the baby brother, and I will always be.  So everything is always higher than me and bigger than me.  On top of that, I enjoy fitness and nutrition, while I instead find that most associates enjoy being fixit people.  And people gather with those that are alike.  My gym memberships, aside from my two distinct undergraduate degrees of a BBA and a BA, have been among my best investments.  [Donate online to KeepYourHouse]
.
INTO FITNESS—– And I am the only one in my family who is actively into fitness.  I once got fired from a temporary job because I had gym responsibilities.  I worked out at the gym that day, and called in absent to my graveyard shift temp assignment.  They released me the next day, for failing to report to work.  [Donate online to KeepYourHouse]
.
SOUND OF VOICE—– I learned late, but from early years, that people didn’t like the sound of my voice.  I always liked my classes in primary school, middle school and high school.  And I enjoyed them so much that I always answered the teachers’ questions.  But most students know that everything said in class is test-able.  So when I would ask a course question, the other students rebelled.  I discovered in later years, that it was the reason for a lack of friends.  But I did get good grades, while I failed to notice my bullpen was empty.  [Donate online to KeepYourHouse]

GAVE THREE EMPLOYMENT—– The older brothers got me my first job, probably as urged through my parents.  I was the substitute city newspaper delivery boy in my primary school.  The older brothers came through again while I was in middle school, as I was the substitute lawn mower in Florida.  And in high school, they came through again referring me into a graveyard shift cashier job at a convenience store where they worked.  But between the three jobs, I got myself my first paying job as a busboy, then as a warehouse janitor, then as a summer organist and finally as a music store front-end cashier.  But it wasn’t until many decades later that I consciously tried to climb, ask for better positions, and ask for better jobs.  In my early years, I really just fell into jobs, took them, took the pay and floated onto the next one.  [Donate online to KeepYourHouse]
.
WHICH WAY? —– In job interviews, since everything is really about money for me, the authority figure always asks me to speak of myself.  But I know from earlier years that others don’t like me to speak or use my voice, since everything is test-able.  So I hear the authority figure asking me to speak on the one hand, and telling me on the other hand that he will punish me if I do speak.  And the authority figure used to be one of the peers who sat beside me, telling me to be quiet.  [Donate online to KeepYourHouse]
.
FIT OVER SLACK —– While I spend more time in the gym, I gain confidence doing the activities I value and at which I am skilled.  And while sitting at work, in the cafeteria, I’ve learned to use that fitness as a competitive tool against other employees who are unhealthy.  Others sacrifice their time and health, thinking they will get paid more for career perseverance.  But I counter that employees who are fit and healthy bring more to the company, than those who are sedate, whose heart and lungs are slack, and who can barely walk from the employee parking lot to their desks and back again.  [Donate online to KeepYourHouse]
.
ALREADY DONE —– I’ve already got my two distinct degrees.  And each work place indoctrinates new-hires into the company’s practices through on-the-job-training.  So I only need to compete during interviews and the workday, based on health and fitness.  I’m still the baby brother, and I always will be.  But now I usually win.  [Donate online to KeepYourHouse]

Since I’m on my own, I presume the above isn’t too (a) premature, (a) putting the card before the horse, or (a) presumptuous. [in the style of HER MAJESTY’S SECRET SERVICE , 1969] “Granted”.  “Your two weeks respite is granted.” “That will be all James”.
