What’s that? You want to hear me talk about the history of modern religious conflict in Ireland?! Well you’re in luck, due to reasons, I have just finished talking about that very thing! An amazing coincidence to be sure. And oh man how sick am I of typing out descriptions for these things? Can’t I just post the damn file and be done with it? No, no. That wouldn’t do.
Anyway, as is typical with Onii-chan Explains, it’s not terribly funny and it’s more educational. Plus I talk about my thoughts on stuff. If you don’t care to hear the history of The Troubles, you might want to just take a break for a week and wait for my next funny video about porn. YEAH!
Ok, ok. I don’t really go to war. But I talk about… well, a war. I can’t promise this will be of interest to you, but I was asked by an active duty infantryman to talk about my thoughts on the US war in Iraq and Afghanistan, and I’m not the type of guy to shirk a request from a soldier. Especially not one that lets me prattle on like an idiot for 45 minutes.
That said, if you don’t want to hear a lot of talk about the sort of bullshit that goes on in America as regards a fairly unpopular piece of our foreign affairs then it might be in your best interests to skip over this one. I’m not so much explaining anything as I am talking about some personal thoughts in a form that other people can hear at the behest of someone with a vested interest in it. Also, I probably repeat myself a good bit, but I do that when I am trying to make sure I get all my thoughts out there over the course of 45 minutes with no script. Haha.
Still, some people might just like the soothing sound of my manly voice, and fuck it, that’s good enough. So… I would say please enjoy, but that doesn’t seem quite right for this episode. Probably not as funny as you’d expect a podcast about a war with Islamic extremists to be.
On the plus side, it gave me a fucking stellar reason to post tits and guns. Two of my favorite things. Oh and a little tidbit, this is the 100th post on OCnE. Hooray?
Well, I said I was going to do this silly series about 800 years ago, so here’s the first episode. Consider it a quick primer on Maintaining Perspective in a world full of prefabricated ideals and open biases. Critical Thinking is a major part of what I’m discussing here, so give it a listen and hopefully it’ll in some way be useful to you.
Also, still looking for people to help grow the site. There’s lots of things that’d be worth doing around this joint, like community building and stuff like that, so if you’d like to be a part of OCnE in some way, be it blogging, helping come up with some fun community ideas, or whatever, please hit the Ask Onii-chan page and shoot me an e-mail so we can begin talking about it. I have some pretty cool ideas for community stuff, and it’d be good to have some folks to back me up. Haha.
Oh and as an aside, I’d especially like to get some female participation for the podcast. A female voice would really add some interesting outlooks to the bullshit I talk about. If you’re a dude, please don’t let my want of lady talkin’ dissuade you.
