Bob and Rudi Talk Trilogy

Bob and Rudi Talk Trilogy

March 3, 2022

If you think ...

Writing a trilogy is hard.

Trilogy-1024x573.jpg

Try co-writing a trilogy.  Bob and Rudi sit down around the campfire to talk about the six year odyssey, how it all started with a simple campfire, and why even after a two year break from the insanity, they're still not done yet.

Interview with a Triceratops

Interview with a Triceratops

March 2, 2022

Welcome to Before Phones (BP),

"Where the Dinosaurs Roam."

Triceraptops.jpg

In this episode, Bob the T-Rex interviews Dom the Triceratops.  Backstory:  I allow each guest to pick a dinosaur at the beginning of the interview, and I was almost positive Dom would pick Barney.  Then again, in retrospect the Triceratops makes sense since it's the dinosaur version of a rhino which is his favorite animal, or one of them.  This wide ranging interview includes new insights into the Before Phone (BP) era and other tidbids.

 

Interview with a Stegosaurus

Welcome to Before Phones (BP) ...

Where the Dinosaurs Roam.

In this episode, Bob (the T-Rex) sits down around the campfire for a trenchant interview with Rudi, who more closely identifies (and resembles) a stegosaurus.  Side note: Did you know that the T-Rex is closer in time to humans than the Stegosaurus epoch.  Yes, the Era of the Dinosaurs was that long, and practically forgotten.  That's where the Before Phones (BP) interviews step in and try to describe what the Geologic Age of Great Phonelessness was all about.

Campfire Concert at Muscovy Lake

Campfire Concert at Muscovy Lake

January 23, 2022

Hard week at work?

Trust me, I know the feeling.

That’s where the campfire comes in. Join the campfire to listen to Bobby Angel’s story telling in this four-song set at scenic Muscovy Lake. Songs include: Ballad of a Florida Panther, Ugliest Forest, Preserved, and Higher Moral Ground. The thing about Bobby Angel: He probably talks about the songs more than he sings them. Some nights he gets so lost in his thoughts he forgets to sing the songs altogether. Songs or no songs, there’s just something special about the campfire. It’s where we go to kick back and relax and reconnect with what’s really important in life. So, if you have a half an hour, go grab a couple marshmallows and enjoy the show.

Campfire at the End of the Road

Campfire at the End of the Road

January 7, 2022

The darkest hour ...

Is just before the campfire.

At least that was the case for this stranger who thought he hit the end of the road only to realize that all roads start anew at the campfire.  Assuming he wakes up.  Moral of the story: Hang in there and better days await.
