    I’m Reading Everywhere You Don’t Belong by Gabriel Bump

    This week, I used an Audible credit and got the audiobook of Everywhere You Don’t Belong by Gabriel Bump. So, once again, I’m being read to this week as I go throughout my day. I’m almost half finished with it. This might be one that I also buy the print copy of, because there are […]

    I Made An Awful Podcast

    Hi, I’m Eric and I buy things that I don’t know how to use and start strange projects with them. Everyone was telling me that I should have a good quality microphone, for good quality 2022 stuff, because it’s the future and what-not. So, I bought one. Then, I wondered what I was supposed to […]
