  1. Handsome.

    Handsome.

  2. John Roderick on String Art Owls, Copper Pipe, and Bono’s Boss (The Merlin Show; 2007)

    I really enjoy re-watching my first interview with Roderick every few months. I hope you do, too.

  3. He is also the founder of the inscrutable yet admirable SuperTrain movement.
  4. Like I say: visceral.

    I’ve no idea how this only has 50 views, or how I missed that this was posted finally - 2 months ago. I give the gentlest “whoo” like the crazy northwest owls to this lengthy talk about social media in the lives of John Roderick, Jonathan Coulton, Merlin Mann, Scott Simpson, and the ever classy John Hodgman. All helping people.

So, I guess, I’d give it a B+.  (The B is for Bear.)

    Just doing some blue-sky solutioneering for Roderick on options for riding a bear-dog.

    I think this really might work.

  11. A John Roderick Interview [Macdrifter]

    I really enjoyed the John Roderick interview from the good old days of the Merlin Show.

    I was totally unaware of this earlier and excellent interview series. It’s 7 parts and it’s a great snapshot of an interesting guy.

    Here’s episode 1, but don’t cheat yourself. The best parts are all of them.

    This is, indeed, a really terrific interview that nicely captures John’s thinking at an interesting time in his life.

    I’ll second the nomination that you watch it all the way through. John’s the best, and, yes, he does help a lot of people.

  12. John Roderick - “Not Moving to Portland”

    All your bicycles are dreaming of their brakes.

  13. I’m pretty sure that people who hate cities just haven’t yet confronted the fact that they are hairless pig-insects living short, striving lives among the writhing masses of their fellow swine, all of them stacked high in crudely fashioned dirt shit-heaps.

  14. In case you’d ever wondered about the time John’s pillows turned into owls, here’s an excerpt from the March 27, 2012 episode of Roderick on the Line, Ep. 26: “Go Practice the Car”.

  15. John Roderick on String Art Owls, Copper Pipe, and Bono’s Boss on Vimeo (The Merlin Show; Prod. Ben Durbin; 2007)

    People ask about the exact origin of Roderick on the Line.

    But, while the whole story of how John first ended up sleeping at our house one night in 2002 has never been told in the exhaustive detail it deserves, I can tell you that this 5-year-old video captures the first time I officially interviewed John as an actual thing.

    I like it a lot, and the unintentional genesis of Roderick on the Line is clearly in there.

    Alongside John’s 2011 interview for Back to Work, you’ll definitely get the feel for why we thought chatting each week might be a useful way for John to help many, many people.
