JD's Blog, a place where sight and sound have no meaning, where time and space are illusions, and where a DJ posts his slightly off-kilter take on this, that, and the other thing.
 
I've loved radio since I was a kid and consider myself extremely lucky to get paid to do it. I'm a 2002 graduate of the DC campus of the Connecticut School of Broadcasting, I play several musical instruments and write books for fun. And I'm a huge fan of the Philly teams: the Phillies, Eagles, Flyers and Sixers.

Have you ever noticed that if you repeat a certain word enough times it begins to sound ridiculous? Take any word and say it over and over and over and before long it loses all meaning.

Try this: say "butter." Butter. Butter. Butter. Butterbutterbutterbutterbutterbutterbutterbutter. See? Now try to picture butter in your mind. Can you do it? Pretty weird, huh?

How about "shoe?"

Or "hat."

Or "key."

It just goes to reinforce the fact that words are created by people, and they hold whatever meaning we assign to them. So if I were to decide that a telephone was now called microwave, it would be. Of course if I did people would look at me sideways when I talked about apps on my microwave. Actually that might be fun to try. Cheers.
