Moriarty & Pity - A live reading from Balticon 50

One of the great things about Balticon is they ask me to do live readings, which, as you might imagine, since I record my voice for fun, I love doing.

This bit is the beginning of a work in progress starring Moriarty and Pity, characters my wife,J.R. Blackwell, and I created together. They are absolutely horrible people, and I think you'll like them quite a bit.

 

The Voice of Free Planet X is written and produced by Jared Axelrod.

The Voice of Free Planet X theme is by Russell Collins.

Queering the Feed - Panel Discussion at Balticon 50

I wasn’t planning on releasing this recording so soon. But in the wake of massacre in Orlando, it appears that queer people simply existing is a radical act. So, here is a panel about queer people existing. I was struck, listening to it again, by how much laughing is in it, how much joy, how much hope. There’s complaints, too, and disappointment and sorrow. But it begins with laughter and ends with an expression of solidarity, and if that’s not a radical reaction to all of this, I don’t know what is. 

I’ve made it a point to do these “queer visibility” panels for the past couple of years at Balticon, because, in the words of our forefathers, if you don’t start none, there won’t be none. A month ago, I thought it was important to stand up and be noticed. It’s more important now.

I’ll talk about Balticon properly in a few days, That episode will have a live reading I did. I’m not charging the Patreon supporters for this episode. We’ve all paid enough, already. 

In the light of the devastation, discussions like this feel so small. In the light of the devastation, discussions like this feel colossal.
