Whole Lot of Nonsense - Get Chance on Coverville

In this show, I ask y'all to help me out. There's a musician named Chance, who has done a cover of the Milkshake song... you know it,

"My Milkshake brings all the boys to the yard,
And their like "It's better than yours"
Damn right, It's better than yours,
I can teach you, but I have to charge".

You have -got- to hear his cover... imagine a power rock version of that song... sung tongue in cheek... it's great. You'll need to buy the CD to hear it. Trust me that it rocks!!!


Alright, now why am I telling you this? In case you don't know this guy named Brian Ibbod, he does a PodCast named Coverville. Brian's doing his annual cover countdown show. In order to get in on this countdown, the song needs to get nominated several times to get on the list, and then voted for once it gets nominated. So, I'm asking y'all to help out with the nominating part, and if we get his song nominated, then I'll ask you to vote for it... but we have to get it nominated first.


If you would please go to the Coverville site and click on the nominate button, and tell Brian that you want to put Chance's version of the Milkshake Song, from his CD "eleven through fifteen", I'd appreciate it.


Special thanks to Mike from Coffee House to Go who has already kicked in his nomination... and admitted his love of Shamrock Shakes...

Whole Lot of Nonsense - Show 38 - My View on Current Politics


In this show, I take on a topic I've been avoiding for the last couple of weeks. I'm going to rant about the nature of the current, past and potentially future political environment. I've got a quick PodCaster Hockey League update. We've got a review from Griffin, and a wicked, cool song from Ookla the Mok.

Whole Lot of Nonsense - Show 35 - CSA... not the abbreviation you're thinking of


I've been enjoying the produce we've been getting from our local CSA - Honey Brook Organic Farm, so I figure, "Hey, I PodCast... let's PodCast about this... and it's a good social action thing to do...". Listen to me and others talk about how great CSAs are. This show's song is from Tons of Fun University and is called "Come a Long Way". The bed music for the CSA quotes comes from Savium called Animus Girl, courtesy of the PodSafe Music Network. The twang in this show also comes from the PMN and is from Bloingo.

LinkedIn for DVoices. Good or Bad?

Gentlemen... and so far we are only gentlemen... I present to you LinkedIn.

I would like to see all the members of DVoices join in, but I would in no way be disappointed if you felt as Groucho did. Let me explain what LinkedIn is, as I understand it, and what it's not.

What It's Not:
  • It's not Amway. I don't get points for getting you to join, there's no Kool-Aid, I don't get any kind of discounts for bringing in new members and I don't get a free iPod if you try out more than one service they offer.
  • It's not going to require any kind of payment just to get in. If you guys don't know already, I'm cheap. I'm not a cheap date, that's for sure. I would be the guy, however, who'd let you order steak and a ceaser salad, and since we'd be splitting that, I'll just have the bread and some water, please. There are tiers of service available in LinkedIn, but I've not found anything I can't do with the basic, free service that I've wanted yet. There may be some restrictions on introductions down the line of your contacts... but I'm not there yet.
  • It's not a marketing clearinghouse's wet dream. According to LinkedIn's privacy policy, they don't sell on addresses to marketers. As a member of LinkedIn, you also have right of first refusal when people try to contact you. You can restrict levels of information that show up on your web-viewable profile, and you can restrict a lot of other viewable items as well. I'm pretty sure you can shut down all kinds of other views, but those choices do seem to be determined by your tier of membership.
  • It's not PodCaster specific. I've found a bunch of PodCasters on LinkedIn, no question. I was invited by a fellow PodCaster to join in. I've also found a bunch of people with whom I've worked, consultants who've worked with me in the past, some people I went to school with and some friends who work in their own industries.


What it is.
  • It's a way to keep in touch with former work colleagues. I email back and forth with people, and talk about general stuff. With this tool, I can find out what they're doing. Maybe they just jumped companies. Maybe they just got a promotion. Maybe they just started their own consulting firm.
  • It's a way to find out who my contacts know.I discovered that a guy I know, who moved to Phoenix, has a friend who's a technical writer for one of the papers on the East Coast. This is the biggie for me. Excuse the analogy, but one man's trash is another man's treasure. Sure, you know that guy who's the editor of that magazine, because he's a friend of yours from College. It didn't occur to you that you should let your other friends know, because he's just a guy you know. Would it interest you to know, then, that as PodCasters who fall into our specific group, we're fighting for recognition within our own congregations that we're doing something of worth, and that we'd love to have a story written about us and the work we're doing? LinkedIn gives me the chance to ask you to introduce him to me, if you think I'm worthy, and let me ask him that question directly. Just sit quietly for a second and think on that.

I'm sure Aron has his own network of musicians and technicians. I'm pretty sure that they're online as well, but I don't know. Michael has probably got an online network of publishers and authors, as well. Mark has got his business network of suppliers and purchasing agents. Some, or most, of the people who are on one networking site, are on more than one. LinkedIn seems to be a good place to coordinate our different business and social networks.

I'm not saying LinkedIn is the answer. In fact, if you've got a networking process that works better, let me know. I ($(*&% at keeping track of all of my business contacts, and what they do, and who they work for... I'm just bad at it.

Anyway, everybody... let me know what you think. If you'd like to try it out, let me know, and I'll invite you in as a contact of mine.

8.05.2006

LinkedIn and you... not so annoying together...

Alright, as mentioned by His Reigning Shogun-ness, Mr. Forman, I'm posting about LinkedIn...

Guys, I think we should try and start using this site for DVoices as well as for personal business development.

Now, this is not an AmWay ad.
No, this is not a SecondLife add-in.
I don't get points for adding new members.
I'm not trying to get a free iPod out of this.

I was invited into this website by Mark Hunter from the TartanPodCast. I trust Mark's opinion, so I checked it out. I read the privacy information. I tested out some stuff. I found some people in my professional background I've not heard from in a bit. I reconnected with some old consultant contacts. Took about 3 days, and most of that time was waiting for people to get back to me.

I also have the right of first refusal on just about any traffic that goes through this site. If you want to contact someone on the site, you'd better have an email address for them yourself, or you have to use your network of friends to get someone to introduce you. No cold calls. No unsolicited email from people looking to meet you.

The site is not as intuitive as I'd like, and there are different tiers of service, basic free and some professional paid features. I've been able to get fairly far along on the basic free service, and won't go to the paid service unless I start doing some heavy-duty networking.

If you don't want in, that's totally cool with me. If you've got another way to maintain a business network, let me know. I'm curious how we can maintain and grow out contacts so that we have people upon whom we can lean when we're looking for new jobs, work, transitional opportunities... all that jazz.

I'm also thinking that we can use this to seek out new PodCasting opportunities. As this medium grows and becomes the kind of thing that you can do as a vocation or an avocation, we'll need to have some rock-solid contacts. I'm thinking that this kind of network may help us pursue those choices we may want to make as we move forward in PodCasting.

I may also be pipe-dreaming.

This is one of those things where I think this will work. Whether or not it's going to work like I'm thinking is a large function of what I put into it... and I think our group can put lots of good things into this network.

Send me an email at bpende at gmail dot com if you'd like me to send you a specific invitation, or head on over to LinkedIn if you want more information and want to just sign up yourself.

Thanks for your time.

We now return you to your regularly downloaded RSS feed.

Whole Lot of Nonsense - Show 31 - Whole Lot of Cycling... PodCast from the comfy seat...


So, I recorded this one on my first commute to work. I also secretly edited pieces in from my return ride as well, but I don't remember which parts they are, so maybe you can't tell, either. I talk about why the heck I'm doing this, what it means to me... and ramble a bit as I lose oxygen to my brain from doing more exercise in one day than I have ever done... at the point I recorded this. I've done this commute three times now, and I don't sound much better. Maybe I'll switch to using my commute as time to record my PodCast... hmmmm....

This wolf is a little stubborn. Especially when I want to learn something new. I may not be able to offer to much at the beginning but I can be very entertaining. Ever see a Wolf walk on his back paws? with a ball balance on his nose? Neither have I. But it does paint an interesting picture doesn't it.

Show Notes: Still laughable, but here nonetheless.


This is available as an mp3 for download.


Whole Lot of Nonsense - Show 30 - Distributed Homeless Programs


This show is all about a Distributed Temporary Homeless Shelter Program... man, that's a mouthful. The First Universalist Church of Southold, NY and the Peconic Community Council are front and center in this show. You get to hear an intro from the Tour of Somerville, a couple of time sensitive promos and a song from a band that few people outside of Jersey have ever heard from before...


Today's song is Black Sunday from Hunchback. These guys RAWK!!! No, they really deserve that.

Whole Lot of Nonsense - Show 27 - Political Prisoner?!

One more pin in the Frappr Map. Keep 'em coming.

In this show I talk about a political prisoner here in the US - Leonard Peltier. I also mention a report by Amnesty International. Fantasy Hockey Season is almost done, and I give one of the last few updates about the PHL. I do mention the NJPA and the Trenton Computer Festival. Come hang out with us and help us take over the building... in a nice way. So we can identify you as a member of the NJPA army, make sure to get yourself a shirt from our NJPA store.

We play a song from Mystic River Singers called Evolution. Rock on.

Don't forget that you can get some of the great PodCaster Hockey League gear at our PHL store.

That - quick - mumbling during the opening music is me doing an ad - unpaid, unsolicited - for Writely.com. I use this site for managing my show notes, and have used it in a collaborative fashion for writing a couple of articles and a press release for NJ PodCasters. The site just got picked up by Google... so they're gonna be around for a while. Once they reopen enrollment, you should swing over there and check 'em out.

Some key links?



The show's intro comes from Bubble, and is called Head Case. Our outro is a song from Steadman, called Wave Goodbye. These songs can be found on the PodSafe Music Network.

All in all, 23 minutes I hope you don't want back.

Whole Lot of Nonsense - Show 26 - Too much caffeine...

Dudes! The pins in the Frappr Map are still coming in and we thank our newest members. Quickly.

In this show I talk - quickly - about how you can act locally and help other people who are doing good works far away. You don't necessarily need to just send money to a faraway place. Fantasy Hockey Season is still going on, so I give an update about the PHL. I do mention the NJPA and the Trenton Computer Festival. Come hang out with us and help us take over the building... in a nice way. So we can identify you as a member of the NJPA army, make sure to get yourself a shirt from our NJPA store.

We play a song from Lunar Drive called A Great Traditional Word. Tres Cool.

Don't forget that you can get some of the great PodCaster Hockey League gear at our PHL store.

That - quick - mumbling during the opening music is me doing an ad - unpaid, unsolicited - for Writely.com.

Huzzah! We're still getting pins in the Frappr Map and we thank our secret newest member.

In this show I talk about why I do what I do, and what I hope to keep doing. I also give an update about the PHL, and have an announcement about the NJPA and the Trenton Computer Festival. Hey... If you want to show your New Jersey PodCaster colours, make sure to get yourself a shirt from our NJPA store before you come to visit.

We play a song from Black Dillinger, from African Dope Records called Big Trouble. Man, I do love da reggae.
