G'Day!
So some of you may have noticed it's been a while since a new ep has gone up and with everything that has been happening both in our small little world and the word at large, I thought I would jump up on the ol' soapbox and give an update and ruminate on some of the recent(and not so recent) happenings of your favorite Bearded Drunks and this crazy world of ours.

So before we get too far ahead of ourselves, the last month has seen the loss of some incredibly talented folks and I would be remiss not to touch on them, if only briefly.

Lemmy - I gotta admit, Motorhead is not particularly my cup of tea, but Ace of Spades is a great some and by all accounts Lemmy is a legend in his own rite, not to mention the only original band member to make it through every incarnation...so in tribute, here is Ace of Spades.
Bowie - Not so long after the tragic passing of Lemmy, and only 2 days after releasing an album of his own, the freaks, geeks and non-sheep lost their idol, legend and symbol of the strange, David Bowie. This man influenced so many people in so many different ways that even if you didn't like Major Tom, The Thin White Duke, Ziggy Stardust, the man who fell to earth or even the Goblin King, you just escape the influence Bowie had on our culture. Not only a prolific musician, Bowie was also an accomplished actor. Anyone over a certain age will forever know him as Jarred the Goblin King from Labyrinth, but alot of folks may miss him as Tesla in The Prestige and if you have seen his crack at Pontius Pilate in The Last Temptation of Christ, you are missing out! 
Finally, in the same week and of the same age we lost a master thespian in his own right, everyone's favorite villain, Alan Rickman. From Hans Gruber to the Sherriff of Nottingham to the eternal Goth Severus Snape, we loved to hate him, but the man himself was a beloved icon of both screen and stage. My personal favorite role of his was in Galaxy Quest, playing Alexander Dane, the washed up actor who hates his career, life and every bastard in it. So to say good-bye, below are some of his best moments from that performance.
Last of the big-assed video windows, I promise! I just felt the need to pay homage to 3 great people who will be sorely missed within the entertainment world. But onto us! Like I mentioned, you may have noticed that there has been no new episodes of the podcast for a while and indeed, the website and social media seem to have shriveled in activity like an old man's... anyway, there are a couple reasons for this, but don't give up on us just yet!

Firstly, Mr JD stepped back from TDB and RvsR about half-way through last year, the location change was a reason and a resurgence in interest in art was another factor, incidentally, the talented little shit is on instagram, you should go follow him Here as well as a place to buy his prints Here. The upshot is, this has made this whole operation, for the time being at least, a one man band, and to be honest, it's a lot of work and the Podcast Format was designed with 2 in mind, so for those of you out there who have stuck with me through that transition, I love you and thank you! But it has been hard I try to find my solo feet and figure out how to make the show viable. I suppose it would be easier if I didn't have this pesky little thing called a life, but work and family are something I sorta need, you know? hahaha.

Secondly to this, I recently moved to a new location over the xmas break and have found out that I apparently life in an internet black-hole with nothing changing until at least May! So for the time being, I am gonna have to ninja-upload new episodes at my day job and hope no-one noticed the upswing in bandwidth! Add to this that I am also going to be starting a new Podcast in the coming months and I thing I may have over-extended, but Fuck It! what's the point of living if life was easy eh? So I expect new episodes to start firing away within the next couple weeks!

A new Podcast? Caught that did you? Yes, starting towards the end of Feb is going to be a new RvsR Media Podcast all about Books. You see, I am a prodigious consumer of the written word in all it's forms, from comics, to trashy novels, fiction, non-fiction, sci-fi, thrillers, dramas, the classics, the list just goes on and on. I don't really care what I am reading, but a book is never far from my grasp, whether in hardcopy or electronic form. So I thought, why not talk about the shit I read? The majority of resources out there when it comes to the written word are either heavy literary snobs or gushy, retainer wearing nuts who compose their own slash fiction about Jacob and Edward(or whatever YA Series is currently in vogue). Neither of these seem conducive to helping people discover the joy of reading, especially in a world of you-tube and attention spans that are shortening at a rate comparable to Top Fuel Dragster. So keep your eye's and ear's peeled for that as it develops!

Finally, this year I want to start writing more, pontificating in a way that my mind can be better at sometimes(Self-Editing is easier with the BackSpace button) So I will be writing more blog entries this year as well, lets aim for the goal of once a week and go from there shall we? I just find writing to be so cathartic(aaannndddd arrogant, big-word dropping target reached! ahahaha) and I have the Web Space, so why not use it??

Well, that's all from me for now, Update delivered
. See you in the Whisky Barrel!

"For the most part, the opening of the glass is not more extensive than the greatest part of the dish.

Most wine glasses have stems, albeit """"""""stemless"""""""" wine glasses are currently accessible in an assortment of sizes and shapes as well.These glasses are ordinarily utilized more coolly than their conventional partners, as they refute the advantages of utilizing stemmed wine glasses"

That is why we need to savor and enjoy the talents of people alike. We need to learn as much as possible from them because we know they won't stick so long. I personally lament every time I hear an actor dying. It's like I have just watched them yesterday on tv. Not only their families and relatives are devastated of their passing. Fans all over the world who watched his or her rise had also been suffering.

Nature always helps a writer to learn from its elements. Nature always try to teach new lessons and a writer transform its experience into words. He can transform even silence into words. This blog taught me a lesson.
