This week, Pyra complains about her even-more-screwed-up-than-usual sleep schedule, blathers on about DIY bellydance costuming and trying to use up her fabric stash, gets a one-week reprieve on tattooing, and the Wikipedia robots have finally decided/noticed Pyra existed as maQLu in 2010.
Yet another reboot: After getting lazy and skipping the show last week, this double-wide episode has a dose of the old version of the show as Pyra raves about the wonders of an obnoxious old cartoon called Kevin Spencer, swaps tickets with a scalper and learns what it’s like to be a Brenda, and despite prior proclamations, finds herself writing new maQLu songs.
Also: Unknown Hinson needs to get a Visa machine for his merch table, and back to belly dance means time to buy new costuming stuff, plus Pyra rambles a bit about DIY halter top costume plans.
This week, Pyra gets her shoulder hurt, sorta; plans to reformat one of her other podcasts; and discovers she might be accidentally micro-cheating on pranayama but it doesn’t matter since she changed pranayama techniques.
She also reads a blog about her continual mental chatter whilst going to a clear mind meditation class (take a wild guess at the imaginary guest star), talks about a mishmash of her readings and video watchings on Tao and meditation and amusingly honest lamas, and shares some disjointed thoughts on which kinds of desire lead to suffering and self-righteous converts.
