Below is just a plain old listing of all the stuff I have written, recorded, or somehow posted on the site. It is sorted by month and year. Check them out and share them with the world... wooorld.... ooorld... orld.. (dramatic echo).


The ShaneCast - Episode 67 - You Complete Me

I am chattering about what I have been up to and how I built myself a new recording booth. I also get into a few other things you may have already heard. But... hey. That's me.

The ShaneCast - Episode 66 - Getting Sorted

First things first, I wrote a book. Please do check it out because it is incredibly pretty and I am going to toot my horn about it over the next little while because I am quite proud of it. Oh, and I did another episode of the ShaneCast talking a lot about my book and some other stuff.

I am fighting my way to complete some challenges I set up for myself and I am ready to kick said challenges asses.

The Late Hour Podcast - Episode 1 - Where It All Began

A couple of friends sat down one Sunday night and talked about doing a podcast together. This is the first episode that they did a month or so later. It covers all kinds of topics... late at night.

The Sound of Awesome - Episode 115 - What's Up With Small Talk?

I talk a bit about small talk and how it is hard for some people to start chatting with people they don't know. I am not one who is very good with small talk but I try my best. I do know many people who have no idea how to begin, end, start, stop, etc. They are completely lost. They prefer (much like myself) to skip over the small stuff and treat people as if they are kind of awesome right away.

The Sound of Awesome - Episode 114 - Hard Connections

I talk a bit about friends and being vulnerable and how it is those two properties of people in the world are what makes life and friends worth having and nurturing. Life can be hard and when we feel like we must carry all burdens on our shoulders without having anyone to help us out... that sucks.

The Sound of Awesome - Episode 113 - Research Into My Brain

I've been thinking lately about how I should do a podcast or some sort of creative sharing that includes reporting on things I learn... but not make it as boring as it sounds. I have often tried to start these sorts of projects but my schedule doesn't allow for it and some of the things I talk about daily worm their way into my personal projects. This is an attempt to not let that happen.

The ShaneCast - Episode 65 - When You Get Another Piece of Someone

I received a piece of someone the other day and it reminded me of just how important that is. I can't say enough about the act of creating a letter and sending it to someone else. The mere effort to make a physical object and sharing it with another human being makes such connections much more important.

The ShaneCast - Episode 64 - Creative People Under Stress Make Nothing

I have been gone for a while and I only am just realizing how much stress changes my behaviour. It is silly, I know but stress can do all kinds of crazy things to you -- including halting you in your creative tracks. I think this newish knowledge is going to push me forward. As I always say, knowledge is never the problem. It is usually something else that pulls us in all kinds of weird directions.

The Sound of Awesome - Episode 112 - More Faith Needed

Another trip to the vet (a day later) for her surgery. It is hard to have a dog in pain and the surgery fixed it all. How can you stand by and not take responsibility for a pet. Most of us know this already but I have received some negative comments regarding the spending of money. Lame.

Faith In Pugs

There isn't much to say about this episode -- but I had to take my little pug to the vet because she had some serious health issues that needed tending to. My life is not always about Serendipity the Pug. It was a little stressful since she was always such a little trooper and we have been so focused on the heath of Serendipity.

The ShaneCast / Episode 63 / Overly Overwhelmed

The world is very overwhelming at the moment and I am experiencing a day where I feel a little left out.

The ShaneCast / Episode 62 / It's All Broken Still

I am becoming a broken record but that won't stop me from speaking my crazy mind. Aren't you all worried that everything is going to hell? Or wait, is that just me?

The ShaneCast / Episode 61 / Turning A Corner

I have some positive things to say about myself and I am quite happy about that. As most of you know, it has been a couple of years worth of change for me and I have been dealing with it the best that anyone can. Broken ankles making me feel a bit more delicate than I would like. Changing the entire business we run and adding a bunch of cool things but haven't to let go of some of the old things. Anyway. There is so much to be happy about and I think I have finally started to "get it".

The ShaneCast / Episode 60 / Shut Up, I Know Who Preston Manning Is Now!

There was a time when I wouldn't hurt a fly. And then the Borg came. Oh, wait, not the Borg -- it was politics. I won't sugar coat it, there was a time when I had no idea who Preston Manning was. The year was 1995 (somewhere in there) and I was perfoming in an improv show. I was endowed with being Preston Manning and I had no idea who that was. I didn't know his mannerisms. I didn't know where he lived. I didn't know what he did. I faintly recognized the name but I didn't know where I knew it from. So, I was made fun of... since. This story won't die.

The Sound of Awesome / Episode 110 / Life & Buckets of Balls

I have to be moving to get this podcast out. This will make you all feel better. I don't know why but, hey, trust me. Why? Because, that's why. I know what I am doing... or do I? Is it all a sham? No, of course not. I am sure you're not really reading this right now. There must be some reason you're here? Is it for me? Or for you? (Insanity? Yes?)

The ShaneCast / Episode 59 / The Desperation of Meeting

Things get a little heated with me on this episode. I have been reading far too much about the disconnection of the social media dweller and I think it is incredibly important for us to step back and stop for a while. I am quite emotional about this topic and I am not entirely sure why. It is something that I feel our country and society is headed for a significant problem but we're too distracted to notice what is going on. I know that this episode won't solve anything but, hey, what can you do.

The ShaneCast / Episode 58 / Musings On Video Blogging Nonsense

I blabber about some future project that has been kicking around in my brain for a while. Hopefully, I will get it done. Actually, I know I will get the video blog started. I have been doing the podcasting thing far too long to not know how to do one properly. I am just having an issue getting to the motiviation and, more importantly, the moment where I won't be afraid anymore to expose myself to the world. You'd think I would be over it by now.

The ShaneCast / Episode 57 / Writing Books & Protecting Kids

I am in the middle of writing a new children's book about blogging and I was surprised how hard it became. With blogging, how do you explain to a young child that they are awesome and not a bad kid just because some asshat makes fun of you. I have been having a tough time attempting to distill a bunch of knowledge stuck in my head and make it all logical and simple. I suppose it means I have been doing this type of work too long and I really need to start writing it down more often. This project has been testing my skills and it has been good for me.

The ShaneCast / Episode 56 / We Will 3D Print Our Extinction

I convince myself that we're headed to a 3D printed extinction. I don't know if it will happen but there is a very real possibility that someone will accidentally kill themselves by tinkering with bio-medical equipment. I am no expert but I think it is the most likely scenario for our ultimate demise. We're not ready for the technology. Of course, would we ever be ready?

The ShaneCast / Episode 55 / Random Thoughts and Internet Vigilantism

I start off in one direction and somewhere found that Internet bullies was a more fascinating topic.

Shoes In The Living Room / Episode 16 / Games In A Box

We dust off a tin box and see what games lurk inside. Action ensues and a champion is revealed.

The ShaneCast - Episode 54 - The Feels and The Wrong Microphone

Using the wrong microphone is amazingly awesome as I chat about all of the things I have been thinking and feeling about the world.

The ShaneCast - Episode 53 - Enough With The Machine People!

In this episode, I chatter about how I am attempting to expose myself... to new experiences. I do lapse into the whole evolution of communication rant but not for too long.

The ShaneCast - Episode 52 - That Bug In My Ear

I chatter further about the disconnect people have between themselves and other human beings. I know it will get old eventually but, right now, I am feeling very strong on the subject.

The ShaneCast - Episode 51 - May It All Be With You

I talk a little bit more about things I should really stop ranting about. I hit Star Wars, personal projects, and then I rant (again) about how being an adult is hard.

The ShaneCast - Episode 50 - Suffering But I Made It With A Smile

I talk about how I fell into the comparison trap and wallowed in it for a few days. But I made it out only to have to cuddle my pugs.

The ShaneCast - Episode 49 - What Star Wars Says About Me

I talk about Star Wars. What more do you need to know?

The Sound of Awesome / Episode 109 / When The World Got Bigger

I recall a time when I had a moment when I could see the world grow.

The ShaneCast / Episode 48 / Leveling Up To Weird Guy

I join a party in progress and realize that I am that weird guy who shows up, acts a little weird, and then leaves... it was a brilliant experience but something I don't ever want to repeat.

The ShaneCast / Episode 47 / The History of Serendipity the Pug

I start to talk about one thing and end up chatting about my dog Serendipity because... well, she has been dominating my world this last year with her lack of mobility. I am not sure if I have ever really talked about her in such detail but, hey, one must have a hobby.

Shoes In The Living Room / Episode 15 / We Were Only Level One

We sat down to play some Munchkin and found out just how ruthless Allyson's style of gaming can be.\\We sat down to play some Munchkin and found out just how ruthless Allyson's style of gaming can be.

The ShaneCast / Episode 46 / Getting It Deep From Dave

I invited a good friend to the show this week. His name is Dave and he and I share very similar thoughts about a whole lot of things. We talk about religion, philosophy, and a few other tidbits you may find riveting.

The Sound of Awesome / Episode 108 / How The Stress Grows Claws

I talk about a bunch of things but the stress still makes itself known. I talk about a bunch of things but the stress still makes itself known.

The Sound of Awesome / Episode 107 / Stating The Obvious: The Universe Wants to Kill Us

I talk a bit about my day... and then get all serious and try to convince you that the universe is out to get us. I talk a bit about my day... and then get all serious and try to convince you that the universe is out to get us.

The Sound of Awesome / Episode 106 / Where I Mention That My Work Ethic Is Stupid

I talk a bit about how I work and how I want to work and how it all doesn't match up. At least, I don't think so.

The Sound of Awesome / Episode 105 / Fighting The Midday Blues

We moved out and fought the midday blues. With the building being sold and our wonder at what the next chapter is in our lives, we made a huge move recently.\\We moved out and fought the midday blues. With the building being sold and our wonder at what the next chapter is in our lives, we made a huge move recently.

The Sound of Awesome / Episode 104 / We Beat IKEA Furniture With A Sledgehammer

We purged a lot of stuff from our old office and got rid of some crappy furniture. There may have been some thrilling heroics.

The ShaneCast / Episode 45 / Who Talks About This Stuff, Anyway?

I talk a lot about personal growth, business, and a few other cool things I have been up to. Basically, who talks about the stuff I like to talk about...


Our fifth adventure means we talk about chocolate and video games. How could this conversation go wrong? We touch on some older video games like Scorched Earth which is an epic game. Also, we're getting used to doing this and we hope we're making it awesome. Thanks for the positive feedback we've received!

The Beer


Our fourth kick at the can is a low energy episode where we talk about deep topics that men are concerned with: 50 Shades of Grey and a bunch of other really... non-manly things. We're real men! Really! We are! We don't need to justify Valentine's Day and Steak and Blowjob Day.

The Beer


Our third episode begins with a tragic event. We couldn't find the beer we all wanted... it was sad. We just used beers that were laying around the house and talked about those -- because, if you can't say something about the beer you have on hand, you shouldn't have any beer in the house in the first place! (Except Dave. He didn't. He drank soda water. The silly boy.)

The Beer



We embark on our second episode with a new friend -- Lock! He is a beer expert with beer drinking experience from three continents. He is a fountain of beer knowledge and shows us quite often how much we need to learn. We secretly think he has injected hops directly into his central nervous system.

The Beer


We moved out of our office because something cooler was appearing over the horizon.

Here we are, people. This is where it all began. Mark it on your calendars because there is no going back! We've hit the scene and we're going to make our mark. We're not entirely sure what that mark will be but we know it will be awesome. Just remember: The boys have arrived on the scene.

I can't explain this episode at all. You should just listen and see why...


A quick note from Shane and Anthony about Podcast Movement.

I need structure to get started in the creative sense. I talk about that and a few other things regarding 2015. I also talk about a few things from my childhood.

I talk a lot about books and stuff. You may want to get ready for this one.

Recorded right before I hit up Disneyland. I realized I was going to do something silly like (sort of) start a band. Let's see where this goes...

I talk about looking for silence in my noisy world. I search again for silence in which to record this podcast and the universe appears to get in my way.

The ShaneCast / Episode 37 / The Unsexy Process

I talk about process and how I make this podcast. It is probably as boring as it sounds.

The ShaneCast / Episode 36 / The Loving Fear

Jim Carrey gave a speech about fear, work, and decisions.

I’ve often said that I wished people could realize all their dreams of wealth and fame so they could see that it’s not where you’ll find your sense of completion. Like many of you, I was concerned about going out in the world and doing something bigger than myself, until someone smarter than myself made me realize that there is nothing bigger than myself! (laughter)

My soul is not contained within the limits of my body. My body is contained within the limitlessness of my soul — one unified field of nothing dancing for no particular reason, except maybe to comfort and entertain itself. (applause) As that shift happens in you, you won’t be feeling the world you’ll be felt by it — you will be embraced by it. Now, I’m always at the beginning. I have a reset button called presence and I ride that button constantly.

Once that button is functional in your life, there’s no story the mind could create that will be as compelling. The imagination is always manufacturing scenarios — both good and bad — and the ego tries to keep you trapped in the multiplex of the mind. Our eyes are not only viewers, but also projectors that are running a second story over the picture we see in front of us all the time. Fear is writing that script and the working title is, ‘I’ll never be enough.’

How do these change your life? A lot.


The ShaneCast / Episode 35 / Neighbours and Conferences

I talk about how I am attempting to expand my social circle and crawl out of my shell a bit. I also blabber about conferences.

I talk about some projects that have cropped up lately with people trying to break down the isolation walls between people and strangers.

The ShaneCast / Episode 16 / What's In Your Digital Legacy?

This one is a bit all over the place but I try to sort out the world of having a digital legacy. What sort of legacy do you think you may have in the digital realm or do you even want one?

The ShaneCast / Episode 15 / Don't Regret A Thing

I talk a little (or a lot) about regret and how life is not going to work out the way we all think it should. Of course.. are we programmed to think of life as a series of planned stages or do we take it by the horns and smash it's face in?

The ShaneCast / Episode 13 / What Can You Do With Expectations?

Just talking a little about how I am breaking free from the fear monster.

Allyson McGrane guest stars and we talk about Valentine's Day... and I stepped in dog poop.

Dammit, fear! Why don't you just leave me alone!

Whoa, friends, family, and other stressful things takea  hit in ths episode. Don't get confortable quite yet as you may be next...

Crack addicts, e-mail, business, and other things are discussed in this episode. I am all over the map but I make it interesting or, at the very least, confusing to listen to. Make sure to listen closely.

This one is from the vaults. Recorded back in 2012, I was apparently annoyed by a bunch of people talking about how there is truth to existence or something. I was a little pissed off.

Shoes In The Living Room - Episode 6 - From The Vault of Avenue Q

This one is from the vault. We recorded this episode (when the podcast didn't have a title yet) back in January of 2011 right after we hit up a production of Avenue Q. We chatted about some other productions and just follow that train to see where it went.

I talk about Rob Ford. Why? I have no idea but I think there is more to the situation than meets the eye...

The ShaneCast / Episode 6 / It's All About The Captions

In order to push my recording forward, I decided to challenge myself. I have a few friends who are deaf and some of mentioned they wish podcasts had captions or people took the time to write out what they have said. Thus begun this challenge...

The ShaneCast / Episode 5 / That Was Twenty Years Ago

I feel like there are fewer days ahead than behind me. I know this is most likely bullshit but -- hey, when you can reference thing in the previous 20 years of your life... you may have these questions too.

The ShaneCast / Episode 4 / You Can't Tweet 911

Why don't you call people anymore? Telephone calls are annoying you? Well, notifications for other communication services are equally annoying. Are you going to tweet 911?

The ShaneCast / Episode 3 / Walking A Think Red Line

I lay it out on the table as to where I stand about a few things -- the universe, religion, and the universe. I tried to tackle the more important things in this life. Just some of the big things.

The ShaneCast / Episode 2 / Back In Black

I've been away for a while and I tell you all about it. Well, not too much... just enough to make you curious and want to get up all in my business. You're name isn't Skeletor, is it?

Shoes In The Living Room - Episode 4 - Go Fish & Make It Worth Your While

Shoes In The Living Room - Munchkins Love Downton Abbey During The Apocalypse

Lock Fulton appears on this intense Munchkin-centric episode and he helps us fight against the pending apocalypse. We also dish on all things Downton Abbey because it is cool just like the BBC.

Just talking about work some more... yah, that is about all I talk about these days.

Just talking as I normally do... almost two years after the last talking thing I normally do.

Shoes In The Living Room - Episode 2 - Trademarks & A Visit To Whiskey Town

We talk about Candy Crushes gaining a trademark on the word "candy". Of course, there are certain limitations yet Shane is outraged. This turns into a conversation about Apple and their history with trademark lawsuits and a bunch of other related things.

Photo from Zombie Dice entry on Wikipedia.

Shoes In The Living Room - Episode 1 - Just Who Are These Crazy People?

We talk about a whole bunch of stuff that you normally talk about all the while playing a few hands of cribbage. This is the first episode in what we hope will be an ongoing series and fun and excitement. We don't script our show and whatever is discussed is... well, it becomes the topic of the episode.

By the way, guess who wins?

I appear to be talking a lot about this stuff of late... it seems to have latched on to my brain and it won't let go. This will be the last for a while because, wow, am I trying to be a Debbie Downer - or what!

Ah, yes. Mr. Narvey is back. He is guest podcasting and we talk more about relationships and all of that. I must have a one track mind these days.

I start out talking about why I named this podcast The Sound of Awesome and, somehow, find myself talking about phones during dinner and in most social situations. Don't know if you fell this way but mobile devices should be limited... to getting smacked up the side of your head! Just kidding.

I yabber about negative attitudes, how to fix them, and how Jonathon Narvey keeps me sane.

I muse on a bunch of things about relationships, emotions, and all of that. Am I right? Wrong? Who knows, it is always a big huge mess when people try to reason these things out.

The ShaneCast / Episode 1 / I Want To Suck Your Blood On A Saturday Night Fever

This is the first episode of The ShaneCast. I put this together back in 2012 and haven't done any since. In this episode I talk about how I have been doing a podcast since the late 70s. My mother is am amazing woman and she decided that recording my little self was a great idea. This is me reviewing myself all these years later.


Here we are, on the way back from my visit to Victoria. How I like to drive and how the pugs are not so happy about the whole thing. The introduction of "The Ticker".

This is more of a warning. Learn how pugs HATE cars. Learn how they wish they were doing anything else.

Another episode and another guest appearance!

I hadn't given a huge amount of thought to the Book Warehouse because I shopped there only once in a while - but I am sad to see it go.

We also talk about some other random things about the changes from physical to digital media... and how I don't like it too much.

It was a brief but quite odd experience. I was walking along, talking to myself, holding my phone in ways that caught their attention. They asked me about what I was doing and one of them knew what podcasting was. You rock, Vancouver Police Department.

Or is it just a different way that a lot of people don't understand. Here is a personal rant about how I struggle with being a huge introvert, how it gets me into trouble, and how I resent it.

Ally makes a special appearance in today's episode. We talk about purses and how fashion hurts girls.

Yah. You heard me. Vancouver City Council had better get on this immediately. Die, Alder Trees!

Where I talk about my pants, height, and all of that stuff.

Nothing terribly exciting but it is a site where you can see pretty much everything I am doing online.

Just a quick trip to the new club I am a member of.

Just a quick review of 2011 (sorta) and how I am looking forward to looking up.

There has been some talk about the holidays being over and I think it is not true. My dad had a knee replacement and I learned about the value of doing things slowly for a change.

I made it to the Vancouver Blogger Meetup. Surprising, I know. Should I not be out there representing the culture I help to create?

So, this is 2012, huh? I don't see the difference. Let's all get used to change and move forward. That is what we are supposed to do, isn't it?

I had a blast tonight and I had no idea that I would. Oh, I also feel very old.

Back to the grind stone and moving forward with cryptic descriptions.

Another day done.... Time to rest.

Hey, if you aren't podcasting, what are you doing with your time?

It got cold. I blame the cold. Yah, the cold.

Go she her show.

Another in a set of rambling confusion as I state my coming weekend...

Exploring a bit as to why I am crazy...

The SoA continues...

Just a quick note that I am back in action.

From the top of the world, I hike at 4000 feet. First holiday in a number of years. So, why not record it.

Ugh. Broken record, man.

Feeling tired last couple of weeks...

Yah, well, one needs to take the long road around... when one can't seem to think straight.

Surprisingly, I have things to say that I don't think I can say... Weird, I know. But sometimes you think there is something you can't say when... maybe you can. Yet, even if you can't, there is always a way around that rule. Or not. Confusing.

Do something new or special before you regret it...

Just a little thanks the crew. I suck up to these guys a lot since I tend to overwhelm them with my personality of Awesome. Sounds great, right? Muahaha.

Can't sleep. Here's a late night blabbering about PAB. I am spouting about it just because I am in the moment.

This event rocks... I am learning quite a bit about how podcasting works -- but not just that. It is about creativity. It is about the ability for people to share themselves in various ways. To create art, thought, and everything in between. It sounds hokey at one level but, honestly, it is pretty cool.

Holy, Hell. What is it with this humidity? I flew away from the comfort of an ocean town to a river infested capital city!? Hee hee.

Yah, PAB! Boo planes.

After the distraction...

Day after tomorrow, I will be in Ottawa. What is this conference about? What should I be wary of? Is there something I should be doing to prepare or should I just sit back and enjoy?

When is there too much work in your fun? Can you survive insanity? Is there an easier way to post things? Is that the solution? Do you need friends? Are you up to the challenge?

Will the services we use to share our digital selves explode at some point in the future? And will our speech and freedom go with it? Does anyone notice?

Maybe we will all reflect on what happened.

We failed Vancouver. We allowed a riot to happen.

The S&M Rants
Two Nerds
The Social Nerdcast

Where thoughts become reality. I chatter about quantum theory and how I would like that my thoughts would be able to live on outside of who I am. Creeeeeeepy.

A fire started during one of our events... this is the result.

Playing games with others... can get you down some days.

Yah, well, we all think we are, don't we?

Okay, well, if you live here you have to complain or love it some time.

You gotta be somewhere, and I gotta be somewhere. Make sure you get to that place at that time. Don't ignore it.

The Sound of Awesome / Episode 4 / No Music In The Streets

No music? No, No! There is a tonne of music out there.

The Sound of Awesome / Episode 3 / Make Love to Books

I challenge you to love your books... no, LOVE, your books.

The Sound of Awesome / Episode 2 / Too Much Responsibility Makes Shane a Blah Blah

Another episode where I talk about being overworked and... stuff.

The Sound of Awesome / Episode 1 / Welcome to The Sound of Awesome

We all have to begin somewhere. This is a podcast where I have rules: I must be going from one place to another, and I must be walking. These are the things I think about... love it or hate them.

The Vicious Bunny Podcast / Episode 3 / Christmas Content

We decided to do a Christmas podcast and just mention a few things we wanted to improve over the next coming months with various things in our businesses.

We also talk about the importance of content and how Shane wants to make it his mission get people to recognize the value of what they have to say and how Vicious Bunny Creative is able to help them achieve those content goals.

The Vicious Bunny Podcast / Episode 2 / The Value of Web Development

Episode 2 of the Vicious Bunny Podcast is a casual discussion about the value of web development and how years of undercutting and devaluing (due to various influences in both technology and social perception) have hurt the industry. This perception is slowly changing for the better but more can be done through education - because building web sites is really hard work.

Shane Birley, of Vicious Bunny Creative, talks with Ken Driediger, of Two Dog Software (no web site yet).

The Vicious Bunny Podcast / Episode 1 / Talking About Blogs

This is our first podcast. We were just getting used to recording together and this is our fourth conversation - and the first one worth posting! We kept this discussion down to 15 minutes (roughly) and only scratched the surface about what blogs are. There are so many ways blogs can be used and we talk a little bit about the different blogs we (or Shane) reads. We will most definately talk about the importance of blogs again.
