Episode 149 - Anecdotal Review of the 2015 Kindle Fire 7

This is an Anecdotal Review of the 2015 Kindle Fire 7.  But this is not a review, really.  Reviews delve into all the tech specs and whatnot, and frankly I don't care much about the specs of the Kindle Fire 7.  Just wanted to share my experiences with the cheap Kindle Fire.  I have a fair amount of Kindle experience from which to compare.

Episode 148 - The Choice

It is wise to wish to preserve life.  But it can be a wiser and more noble choice to risk one's life, or even sacrifice it, if you are actually accomplishing what you have hoped to achieve in your life.

Includes:

Rev Dr Martin Luther King Jr's sermon at the Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, Georgia in November, 1967 from The Internet Archive

Billie Holiday - Strange Fruit from The Internet Archive

Episode 145 -- Corporations are People

Just a little niggle with a comment by Congressman Rick Nolan saying that "Corporations are not People."   Well, not quite correct, at best.

Episode 144 -- My Life and My Town

A little bit of news:

I get to start a new podcast for one of the sims in Second Life, a community of common interests that I think the rest of the world will find interesting, too.

And a friend asked me to help him start his own podcast.  Flattering and gratifying, to know someone who knows me face to face thinks this podcasting stuff is a worthwhile skill that I actually have, after eight years of practice.

I finally got my music back!  Got my old account at CyberPR opened again, found a tune I really love (My Town) from a group called Antigone Rising, which I got to play on the podcast.  I missed having music!

Episode 141 -- Hot Mike!

A first try with the new tech setup, which should allow live recording from Skype while livestreaming with Shoutcast (into Second Life) and recording.  More fiddly, and I had my levels a bit too high.  Better next time I hope.

Have some dire financial issues which will impact the podcast, so I yelled for help on that.

I also got some further word from TR Kelley & The Raventones regarding their IndieGoGo fundraiser to help pay for producing their new album.  Yes, that is a link up there, go ahead and click!

 

And "Starstruck Enterprise" at the end, used by permission, which will also be on the new album.  Still trying to get some of the new tunes.  Again, next time.

Episode 140 -- Live from Second Life!

Just as an experiment, I recorded the whole show while live streaming it in Second Life.  No SL-specific content, but maybe someday soon.  Gotta figure out Skype for that yet.

I explained what happened with the feed, and some of you getting a whole lot of old episodes with your usual.  Funny story... well, maybe not funny.  One of those mistakes I figured out after it'd all happened.  Sorry about that.

Started playing from the stack of promos for Podiobooks.com.  The books are still there, so the promos are for existing books, just not the most recent ones.  First one was one of my own, "Flatland."

Talked about the upcoming new album from The Raventones, and played a song from their last album Odd Birds at the end, "White Crosses."
