It’s called the cult of inspiration and it is rewarding

Back in the oft-heard chair of the WMFO studios (hey, it’s freeform…the chair can do what it wants), I felt right at home as I settled in for a night of Bubbles in the Think Tank EAST style silliness. But Read more ›

The week has come today

Well, it’s official.  No Bubbles in the Think Tank EAST this Saturday night.  But you will be treated to an extended Classic Rock Mine as Mike holds down the fort in my absence. But, fear not.  You’re silly fix is Read more ›

So meet me on the corner of your life

We’ve met here before and we’ll meet here again.  At least that’s what I always tell myself. I show up at the appointed place and time.  I check the time.  I straighten up.  I look both ways.  I exercise my Read more ›

Well, that’s the good with the bad

Not everyone loves everything we do at Bubbles in the Think Tank.  Sometimes I don’t even love everything we do. Say it ain’t so!  If Belinda can’t love it, then what are the adoring masses to think? Sometimes, I love Read more ›

They’re mucking up the rhythm and the joint can’t swing

Wait…who’s she talking about?  When’s she talking about? Thanks to all for the good times in the Beatle Detritus show.  Not only can you listen to the archive of the show below, but you can also catch the archive of Read more ›

If you want me I’ll be swinging with the monkeys

I feel like I’ve been in heavy rotation of late.  Perhaps it is having been in high demand, or just the spinning of the head.  I’d have to slow down to find out.  That’s hard to do when you’re being Read more ›

Just Delightin’ In Your Company

I was wondering this week just when it was in my life that I decided that I need for everything to make me laugh.  TV, radio, books, all the usual stuff.  But also food, work, public transportation…you name it. I Read more ›

I will do my level best to…

…plan more than just the RadiObituaries on occasion. …consider how to reinvigorate Think Tank field trips in this new online-listening era. …keep the promises I make on air. …more clearly delineate where the shows are on this site. …continue bringing Read more ›

Laugh if you want to or say you don’t care

Slowly regaining balance and achieving equilibrium, awaiting the departure of… oh, it doesn’t matter. Just try to enjoy this special Halloween episode and I’ll be back with more silliness soon enough.

Vertigonally speaking

No show tonight, you Bubbles in the Think Tank EAST lovers. Your hostess, Belinda, has been stricken with vertigo of all things. At least I can think about Arrested Development, Jimmy Stewart, and High Anxiety. Things could be worse. I’ll Read more ›

But one thing i don’t understand

Ok, maybe a few more things than one… How Arrested Development was ever cancelled. Why Jodie Foster makes such dark movies. Where’s my jetpack? Spontaneous Human Combustion. How I ever got so lucky as to have Bubbles in the Think Read more ›

When we search our own hearts and not others

Each time I undertake another episode of Bubbles in the Think Tank, I’m searching for something. Sometimes I find it by the end of the episode, other times the next day.  Occasionally it takes years.  Good thing I’m not in Read more ›

How you ‘spect to get your corn meal made?

I’ve been thinking a lot about process lately.  Those who know me know that I frequently do, but that’s usually more about organizational process at work.  These days, it’s all about mine. Stunned to think that Belinda is thinking only Read more ›

Some nights you gotta quit while you’re ahead. I could have gone on, but chose instead to pack it up and go home a mere 20 minutes or so past our scheduled end time.  Oh, there was momentum that I Read more ›

Everything is cool ’cause he’s there digging me

A sampling of joys in my Bubbles in the Think Tank life: When listeners let me know (even before the show starts) they are disappointed when life keeps them from listening. Playing something that I know Not Todd will love. Read more ›

I try to find a way to make all our little joys relate

Another week, another show.  At least that’s what one might expect I feel. I spent eight hours on a train today on the way to DC.  I came prepared with my laptop, a  magazine and snacks.  Thank goodness. Not only Read more ›

The truth is hard to swallow

Still feeling a bit fussy following this week’s show, so I won’t blather on. What happened, you ask?  The show was perfectly lovely, but events outside that perfectly manicured bubble were incongruous to the love shared within. I shall merely Read more ›

Our weekly rendezvous

It doesn’t matter what is happening.  This is what is happening.  Nothing else happens that doesn’t affect it.  Its effect on all that I do is manifest at all moments.  I experience nothing in which it is not. It was Read more ›

You’re just talking about words

I’ve been quizzed a few times over the years about why I will occasionally play material that is clearly not funny on Bubbles in the Think Tank.  I usually just fall back on the standard “it’s not a comedy show, Read more ›

We were just too pure and peaceful to decide

I think it would be superfluous to add any comment on current events if I doth quote “Lemmings’ Lament“: We all want to go underground and get back to the earth, We don’t want nothing if it isn’t free. A Read more ›

Never rush a pug

What?  You think a blog headline like that is irrelevant to a Bubbles in the Think Tank post?  Ok…so I’ve been watching the dog shows again, and I don’t believe that you can’t dispute the accidental precision of the random Read more ›

Blow those covers off

When I was still hosting the home show, Bubbles in the Think Tank ORIGINAL, I played the cards close to the vest. No last name, no job references, no lots of things. And you say to yourself, “Didn’t she tell Read more ›

While the WMFO transmitter has been at the spa, I’ve had chance (no…I’ve made the choice) to listen to a Boston area talk radio station during my weekly drive in to the show.  It’s been a harrowing experience.  The talk Read more ›

A sweeping probe of what you want

At least I hope you want it.  You keep coming back for more of it, so what am I to assume? I’m secure knowing that Bubbles in the Think Tank makes me happy.  I believe that it holds the relative Read more ›
