PodCast & Portable Media Expo

Alrighty, gentlemen... 'cause I think we're all gentlemen at this point... Who's planning to be at the PodCast & Portable Media Expo (PPME)?

I've got all my plans set. I'll be arriving late Thursday night, and leaving on a red-eye out on Saturday night (0.30 on Sunday am).

Rumours abound on who'll be there, and who won't. So, let's use this thread to figure out what's going on.

As I'm registered for the conference, I'll be able to get hold of the audio and handouts for people who can't be there... so let me know if you can't be there, but would like to get some of the info. The whole set of handouts is supposed to be elctronic, so I shouldn't have to carry stuff away.

Here Come them Guitars!

Wow, I might need to seek some Venture Capital funding so I can get someone to help me with the blogging-$4 million shouldn't be too much. Enough silliness, please welcome 6th member Nick Carver of Milwaukee, WI and No Idle Frets podcast. If you haven't heard his show yet, make sure you listen, nice jazz guitar music-podsafe of course. Wow, that makes the 2nd midwesterner after Mike. Cool, we're bound to get a Californian at this rate.

Thinking of Michael B.

Please note this is a special multi-media podcast inspired by and dedicated to the very gifted, and unforunately right now, the very ill-Michael Brecker. In this you'll find some excellent music in the background and foreground from Michael B. and others, talk about some adjustments to DAO program and Cory Doctorow's new work in progress, hear a lecture by the late Hunter S. Thomson, hear me introduce my audio partners in crime, ride the podcasting wave-great shout from Brother Love, talk about the concept of podsafe music, and read a passage from Brooklyn: A State of Mind. It runs long: 68 minutes. No I'm not going to make this the norm. In summary, if you would like further info about Michael please visit his site, and leave an e-mail let him know you care! You people are the best! Oops for program end being cut slightly short. The gremlins!

Fast and Furious

I don't know first I'm trown a curve ball by Aronski doing more casts in a 3 day period than the 3 months preceding. Then we get the IBC kid in and before he even brings the pizzas to the first Dvoices poker game, we get Mike Potter from Coffee House to Go Podcast storming the barn. Mike does a really neat Poetry/Literature Coffee House style podcast as welll as run a small literary publishing co., and about 3 blogs that I know of. Rumor has it that he is also the Chicago Bear mascot but we have no photos to prove that yet. Bada bing bada boom-the den of thieves welcomes you. Now hurry up and make some coffee for us-:)


Asian + European Flavour

Thank you Mark, Aron and Brad for welcoming me to your family. I hope to bring another Asian point of view, as well as a European flavour to this corner of the podosphere. It is really exciting to be in podcasting, and I am honored to be in such good company.

Reading Aron's invitation: "Hoping to expand our own understanding of podcasting, music, life, love and the universe [...]", I realized that is exactly what my podcast is about! What do they call it? Fate?

Peking Duck Pizza?

Hey Guys,
We got this guy here from Milan, with Taiwanese parents, he lives in Shanghai, works podcasts, and chases his beautiful new bride around the apartment, while yelling, "Amore, bella amore!". I think that means waiter more wine or something. Enough babbling-welcome to John Tai of the Italian Born Chinese podcast.


Critical Need for Michael Brecker

Some serious news-a lot of you may know Michael Brecker from the Brecker Brothers or various other musical works. He has a life and death situation. Please check this site or Parking in Bitterman Circle for details.

PIBC#26- URGENT appeal for Michael Brecker

A special short PIBC with perhaps the only important message ever shared on Bitterman Circle. Jazz musician Michael Brecker is very ill with MDS and need our help. By getting our blood tested and registering our information, we could help him (and others in similar situations). Please visit any of the links below for more information and if you can find it in your heart to get tested, thank you in advance.


My posting about it....

"Angle of Repose" from Wide Angles by Michael Brecker

"Confirmation" from Three Quartets by Chick Corea (on drums!) and Michael Brecker

This is available as an mp3 for download.

This week is about:
  • how pissed off I am at the religious rights hypocrisy in scientific education
  • the death of my favourite Aunt Suzy (she died yesterday) - I'll blog more on this later. Although, I think this PodCast captures my feelings quite well
  • thanks to everybody helping me emotionally deal with my Lyme's - especially my wife

All in all, ~28 minutes I hope you don't want back.

Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom:1

Well friends the adventure begins-this is first episode of Cory Doctorow's: Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom a Creative Commons published novel. I am reciting this fine novel by Cory with Creative Commons and podsafe music in the background and during pauses. I plan on doing one reading (chapter?) each week. I give my warmest thanks to Cory for personally assenting to this project, to Mike Potter over at Coffeehouse To Go podcast for informing me that this work existed, and to Edinburgh Scotland's musical giant's-Sans Trauma whose music was a must in my mind for accompanying this project (their song Stare at the Floor opens and closes each episode). I feel strongly that the future would be very bleak without writing as interesting as Cory's and without music as captivatingly gripping as Sans Trauma. One last plug-I was introduced to Sans Trauma's music by Scotland's Tartan Podcast-the finest music podcast on the net that I know about. Host Mark Hunter is the music podcaster's podcaster providing a rich mix of delightful music to suit all moods, and helping to sooth savage beasts like me.

Some Housewife From Topeka wrote......

Well, the Bluesman wanted to create a home for the wayward lads, a podcasting group for the guys and gals who not only defy pigeon holes but tend to fly out of them on a regular basis. As the world begins to learn of podcasting, alliances and sub-cliques everywhere; The Disembodied Voices Podcast Group.

Beginning as a small group of podcasters with diverse yet similar needs, the DVoices will be a home to those have a want to belong and no interest in being assimilated. Hoping to expand our own understanding of podcasting, music, life, love and the universe, I guess this is an invitation to those who are seekers, wanderers, listeners and just a bit off center.

Further demonstrating the east coast is not the least coast Dvoices is now one short of a Gang of Four. Welcome to Brad Pendegraph-Whole Lot of Nonsense Podcast newest member of Disembodied Voices podcast group. I can see the first 3-on 3 game in the near future!


Batter Up

Hey there, a report from the other side of midnight, the central time zone, where the temp rides the 100 degree F mark and it's no big deal, the lawn cries and the flowers collapse, where false cowboys have addresses and I have part of a day off. At my other blog, I done busted my software and now live in fear that I could accidently scramble all of my data so that it would finally make sense. I'm sure I'll solve that soon.
In other news the bathroom looks like a cardboard box now that the 340 lb. cast iron tub is out (and grabbed off the lawn by persons unknown), the dry wall and tile lay shattered in a landfill north of here, close to the reminants of two layers of vinyl flooring and in the same county as the sink, the cabinet and the molding. Being home often means projects on fast forward, resentments, cat naps and kitten patrol. A podcast of the domestic quality is soon to come... not always as popular as the out of town ones but a man's gotta do...
I'd like to thank the Brooklyn Bluesman for taking point on the DVoices project, grabbing the bull by the horns and giving it a name. It still remains to be seen if it will be a party of two, shouting at different sides of a harvest moon in two broken yet eeriely similar dialects or a party of partially educated ner-do-wells who may not win any sporting trophies but will probably find a way to insult the other team without them knowing it. We all gotta have goals.

Game on!


Podcasting For Dummies!

Some designated Podcast software to consider: Castblaster, Propaganda, and Mixmeister. Can't endorse any of these since I haven't used any yet-all of them currently only available in Windows format. I'm still using Bias Peak 4.1.1 an exellent recording software. The advantages of at least some of the 3 podcast specific programs I mentioned is: 1) the ability to direct record in mp3 without having to convert-saving a lot of time waiting for lengthy file conversion, 2) Write show notes which will publish to specified blo/website and produce related rss enclosures, and give you ftp upload link to your podcast host within program.

If any reader has experience with any of these please feel free to comment.


2 excellent resources for creative commons music for inclusion in podcasts. A lot of electronica with other musical forms as well.
