This edition is the celebration of the one year anniversary of the lifespan of Musings of the Living. It looks at how much this podcast has grown. We also focus on things that are small with big effects or expand to a lager size than was originally expected. Some examples of this are a story, a high school band making it big and interviews with people that live in a small town with big, beauteous surroundings and have had big adventures. Perhaps one of the great highlights of this anniversary commemoration is the return of an old friend.Minute to Magnanimous
In this edition a lot of our sections are trying to look back at things we've done in the past and returning to those while moving on. Some examples are the intro song and transitions which are from a very old song of Joel's, but we have changed them a bit.Returning to a New Time

This edition of Musings of of the Living is quite revolutionary. It's a testing of our musical skill including a song by Erik and a new section titled "Top 3 Songs".

In this edition of Musings of the Living, we experiment with pitch, hence the title. We include an opening song, which is based simply on the dial tone of a phone. We also have our second original song that we've recorded and after that Joel reflects on his photography. To finish it all off, we do our musical spotlight on Neil Young and then let you exit our world with a remix of a grade 10 applied mathematics class.Fluctuating Octaves and Oscillating Falsettos
Small Town Glory

Small Town Glory

2006-01-29--:--

This edition is shorter than the rest, mainly due to an absense of Joel's writing and a comdedy section. It's focus is on the beauty of small town and rural life. You will get a glimpse of Canada by listening to the emerging new band The Sword Swollowers (name in continual process of change) first song, The Rockies.You'll then get a taste of Erik's knack for storytelling as he completes the story that he started last edition. The musical legend Johnny Cash is then focused on in this edition's musical spotlight. Enjoy!Small Town Glory
Heroes on the Radio

Heroes on the Radio

2005-12-08--:--

Heroes on the Radio focuses on the quirkiness of an everyday life in which everyone can and is a hero in some odd way. We open up with a quirky song that uses everyday sounds to establish a beat. Going back to the idea of responses a quick dialogue on the song follows. A new serial story begins after this, read by Erik this time. Then we've got a one time interview with a local cat-saving hero: Jo-bob.We sequel that with a new section to the podcast that will hopefully give you an idea of the kind of movies and books we read and watch as well as introduce you to some new films and novels. We've taken a small break from the musical discussions as we need to find another band/artist that both of us know enough about to sustain a conversation. Then Joel stars on the guitar doing a duet on his own to ease out of the realm of the living's musings.Heroes on the Radio

Produced in record time by Erik and Joel, this episode contains quite a few songs, including Erik Berg's debut song, which you will hear. A timely discussion about the return to school will be heard and a discussion on the famed band: Nirvana. I also read a piece on how marks are over-rated in the education system.

The debut! Joel Penner unleashes his first song on the general population (Artistic Screaming Grace), while Kelsey Heinrichs gives a very helpful response to it. Joel's debuts with his writing as well with an odd piece on how his teeth portray changes in his life. And to finish it off, the short-lived reporters Bob Zoodoggle Joe Smoochka, who were reporting from an island at the time passed away before their first segment even got on the air. A tragic tale indeed.Hope you enjoy it!Stutter of a Lifetime
