I know it's been some time since I spoke up around here, and for that I am sorry. It's funny how time flies.

The radio show was on a bit of a hiatus there. There were a few technical problems here and there, and I've been working on hard on writing up new material. I'm hoping we'll be back next week.

While I'd prefer to broadcast the news and inspiration pieces to help keep up morale, I'd be open to suggestions if anyone has any. Anything you might want to hear or maybe even add to the show? Let me know.

Joe O'Hara.

This is tiresome. I am tired of being sent to strange realms. I want to go home.

I do not expect that any of you will be able to assist with that request, so perhaps you will aid me in a smaller one. I do not wish to live in a suite of muggle rooms powered by muggle electricks and with a view of open space that reminds me how perilously close I am to certain death.

Is there a real house anywhere? A house alone, preferably in a field of real grass? I am not in a position to be demanding. A cottage would do. Even a barn. I do not know who owns the land here, such as it is, but I can pay in the muggle dollars.

Filtered away from Higgs and the minions they know of.

When we fought together three years ago, we thought we'd be away from the fear The Man reaped down upon us. Now we have a new foe. And we need every man woman and child to fight together again, if we're going to bring an end to this one.

We've lost faces we knew, since then, but gained new ones. Some I'd be very proud to call friend, and even family.

We need to group up, so we can watch each other's backs. There is a hotel in wheel one, close to the one Loki and his family has claimed, that will fit us all comfortably, without cramming us in like sardines in a can. There are board rooms, and other rooms we can use as battle rooms.

Please join me in this, once Higgs is taken care of we can move back to the comfort of our homes. But if this sleazeball is willing to attack one kid, then we know he doesn't have a line that he wont cross.

Hello Party People!

Name’s Higgs Monaghan, but y'all can call me just Higgs. It’s a pleasure to be on your wonderful station and I look forward to getting to know y'all.

Little bit about little old me… well I come from a place quite like this except, you know, less alive. You could say “fuckin’ deserted” but that’s a cuss and my mamma raised me right.

Man oh man. It sure is nice to hear the hustle and bustle of a big empty station with lots of little voices. It feels goddamn electric!

Who feels like a chat?

I need advice. I want to go to the con, but I want to dress as Jessica Rabbit, because why not. I have solved the boob problem. But now I have the 'I'm five foot flat, how do I look taller' without obvious hooker shoes. Any suggestions?

So, I've been enjoying having my grown children around me. They're cooks, and musicians. The three that have the X-gene have never known the prejudice that I did, and actually love their mutations. And it's all because of this place. Because of you guys. Because we come together in times of darkness.

So in celebration of each and every one of you, Clan Barton would like to have a concert. We'll take requests, and depending on how many we get will depend on the date. We'll take on everything from ACDC to ZZ Top, and everything in between.

We love you guys, each and every one of you.

My music taste might be considered somewhat... outdated, especially around here. Can anyone give me any recommendations for my radio show? Requests?

Are you all right? Spirits are pretty low around here. It's understandable. That new door's something else... I was thinking, maybe there's something we could do to distract people? What do you think?

We have a new door, people. We've got it for a month, up until March 29, and the plaque says it's going to Hell. And then it says that "Abandon hope, all ye who enter" quote, and I swear the door's talking, so that's great.

I stuck my head in, just to check it, and it's a city that's like a load of ruins (some of it's on fire) and the sky is fucking angry like you wouldn't believe, it's red. And it stinks. I'm so glad I'm not Na'vi right now.

The door room's in the spine at the moment, just by Wheel 5. [Accurate directions]

i am bored. despite all the excitement this is a dull place. so I propose a tournament. let us test our skills in duels of the sword. no supernatural abilities are allowed only skill. if you cannot fight without them and still wish to fight you can have a league of your own. Ww can hold two separate tournaments.

i would also like to thank my sister astrid who will so gracefully volunteer to provide the catering. she is not aware of this just yet. i would welcome suggestions for a price too. i have little things of value.

who is brave enough to answer my challenge.

Times like this, I miss Gatsby. He’d be as tickled as me about the 20s rolling around again now.

Anyone want to see in the New Year with me? Let’s dress like it’s 1919 and mix with the locals in a gin bar.

Backdated to around 7.30am, December 21

We've got a door for Christmas! It's going to London, England, and it's open from now until January 11 next year. It's opening into a church? [Photo of the massive stained-glass window]

The door's at [location of door room on the station].

Does anyone own it?

Filtered away from anyone under 18 and her daughters.

I'm considering opening a second location on the station. This one would be much geared toward... A gentlemen's club feel. Put it in a place that would be less likely to be found by youthful sort. I say gentlemen, but I wouldn't discourage women of an age to come in and alleviate stress with a willing participant.

Would there be any interest in that sort of thing here?

If anyone needs to talk (confidentially, of course) about anything that happened with the clown in Derry, or anything at all, I'm here to listen. I can offer counsel, or I can just be an ear. You don't have to be Catholic or anything, I can keep God out of it, whatever you need.

You can drop into the prayer room between 4-6pm any evening, or knock on my door at [apartment number], or call, or text, whatever.

I've been asked a few times about setting up a genetic database, and while most of this shouldn't be a problem (I forsee a lot of plants in my future), a natural subdivision of this database will involve you, the people on the station, and also the various animals and pets. Would this be something everyone would be okay with me setting up?

The database would ideally be something that will grow with each door, every new arrival and so on, especially if/when we start exploring local space. On the top level, it would be something that could be used for education (which plants in this part of the park belong to the same family), genealogy (finding out exactly who you're related to, if required, for both people and animals) and so on. Data on this level would be available to everyone and also pretty restricted for that precise reason. I would provide a more in-depth level of access for medical staff as well, for reasons explained below, and everyone would be able to access their own data.

By the way, does anyone want a job helping me with plant samples? I don't know if you've noticed or not, but this place has a shock-load of plants.
