Episode 128 - Perfect is Enemy of Good

Some Dork with a Microphone.  Just an update so there's something not way old in the feeds.  I'll do more later.

Show Theme "Hot Swing" from Kevin MacLeod of Incompetech.com.

Followup to Episode 126.  Now we know what Second Life is, what is it you do there?  Just about anything and everything, I suppose.  Second Life as Social Media.  Second Life as a virtual world and "actual" place, where you don't spend time killing people or critters for gold.  Mostly. 

 

Oh, it turns out Chris Kirby has a brand new album, "Wonderizer."  I just got my MP3 copy from Amazon (and then Chris wanted to send me one, oh well...) and I look forward to listening to it.  Might be getting a signed CD for a later giveaway, we're talkin'.  ;)

Episode 126 -- Second Life : This Is Not Your Life

Leo LaPorte said on "This Week in Tech" that he abandoned Second Life because "it's all about sex."  Made my jaw drop to the floor.  After I picked it up, this is what I wanted to tell you about Second Life, what it's not "all about," and what it is, at least from my viewpoint. 

Used a tune called "Day Job" from Chris Kirby's album "Vampire Hotel" on the show.  Back when I interviewed him on The IDSL he said I could use his music on my show.  He may even vaguely remember who I am.  I encourage you to buy and check out the rest of the album, too -- I think the title tune from "Vampire Hotel" reminds me of almost all the clubs in Second Life where I've DJed late into the night.  Except of course we take vampires a lot more seriously in Second Life.  ;-)

Oh, it turns out Chris Kirby has a brand new album, "Wonderizer."  I just got my MP3 copy from Amazon (and then Chris wanted to send me one, oh well...) and I look forward to listening to it.  Might be getting a signed CD for a later giveaway, we're talkin'.  ;)

Crap, quoted Cunning Minx from the Polyamory Weekly podcast, and forgot to provide a link.  Till now.

Episode 125 -- Four More Years!  Four More Years!

Yes, this is my 125 episode, and as of tomorrow it'll be four years since I started.  Yay.  :)

A GOOD DAY!.

I got a call for a short Temp assignment, which happens to be working for a temp agency that's working for another company that's working for our Public Radio folks.  Only three degrees of separation.  Wow. Sure will be nice to be working again.

Oh, and I found my lanyard for my glasses.  And you should care because....  ?

Started recording from practice scripts I found at the Edge Studios website.  Recorded 35, and put a couple in this podcast.  What do you think?  Talked about doing a demo disk, if I can make up my mind what should be on there.  Eventually I'll get it.

1-800-COLLECT Demo

I've always started with seriously Entry Level jobs, with not much in the way of qualifications.  Broadcasting and voiceover requires coming in the door with talent and skills. Maybe I have them, but I find it hard to ask for that sort of job.  Very new to me.

1-800-OK-CABLE Demo

Four years.  Wow.

New Group Quest Intro & Outro

I could do one for you, too, ya know.  Just sayin'.  Call me.

Did a few other folks, too.  Here are a couple examples:

The Rejoiner I didn't do for "Evo@11."  :)

Rejoiner for Annie and the Awkward Cakeman on B.T.R.

Rejoiner for Boise and Beyond podcast

Piteous whining.

IDSL-ish tune for the day....

A little "Face Funk" called "Snacks" from The Twin Cats' new album, "Thick."

Episode 124 -- Experimental Hybridization... Huh?  (218-234-CALL)

Experimenting with recording the regular parts on my portable Zoom H2 Handy Recorder, and the music parts of the show via SAM Broadcaster, combining all of it in SAM.

Part 1

Where does "Internationally-Renowned New Media Celebrity Grizzly Smith -- Yes, That's Me!"  Come from?

Finally getting around to playing some of the music from Ariel Publicity I've accumulated.  A bit about The IDSL, which may or may not have been a successful podcast, and may or may not be coming back.

Music

Marie McRae - Until I Met You

Part 2

Podcasting Administrivia - We Should Talk Podcast and what's up with that?

Music

Kelly Richey - Only The Bird Knows

Part 3

Many different online services I'm on.   Not sure why.  Twitter make sense.  Facebook I'm tired of, and seems pointless (especially Gangster Wars or whatever) but everyone is on Facebook, so I need to be.  Friendfeed, but I'm not really there.  My podcatcher (MediaMonkey), but I tend to let a lot of podcasts "age out" and I don't hear all of them.  How many people are like me, downloading but not actually listening?  "Long tail" downloads -- I get a lot of those.  Annoying whining about Libsyn 3, and why they didn't just make it simple, if they could.  "Criminalization" of cigarette smoking.  The War on Drugs -- AKA the Federal Price Support Program for Illicit Pharmaceuticals.

Music

Sora - Heartwood

And Finally...

My turn to forget to hit the button twice on my Zoom H2 Handy Recorder.  Begging for Comments.  Begging for Donations.  Begging for Work.

Okay, one more piece of Music...

Cady Finlayson & Vita Tanga - All Set for St. Pat's

 Theme: "Hot Swing" from Kevin MacLeod.

I started a rant last time about Second Life.  Decided to Revise and Extend my remarks here, about the Mainland, exploration, Search, what SL is For, and so on, and so on.

Part 1 -- Second Lifeless

I've been on Second Life for over a year now, and most of the things I've tried to do there have turned out to be hopeless and pointless.

 

Part 2 -- I'd better get on this one...

I finally have the necessary stuff to do a project I was asked to do for Behringer, in exchange for...

 

Part 3 -- The Internet is Over

Why Prince was right.  Kinda.

 

Part 4 -- The High Road

Terry Fallis' new sequel to "The Best Laid Plans" is out in podcast form.  Yay!

 

And finally...

Stuff I really gotta get done.  Soon.  Really.

Part 1 -- A Learning Experience

A little bit about how school is going, and how I'm going to school.

 

Part 2 -- Regular Rates

Voicework, and actually getting paid.  Wait, I'm supposed to have some idea how to do this?

 

Part 3 -- The New Local Radio

My thoughts on streaming radio as the new local radio station.  With just a bit of a rant in there.

 

... And Finally ...

Comments on live streaming this show, and on commenting.  I'm including the comment line in the shownotes, but haven't updated my own podcast outro.  Sloppy of me.

Yes, I'm back, more or less.

 

Part 1 -- School

How's school going?  Well... it's going...

 

Part 2 -- Podiobooks

Seventh book, Orthodoxy, is up on Podiobooks.com.  Thinking the eighth will be "Eugenics and Other Evils," also by Chesterton.  Big deal?  Yeah, kinda.

 

Part 3 -- A New Plan

What do I have planned?  Wait, a plan?  I should get one of those.

 

Part 4 -- Final thoughts

I will try to continue Grizzly's Growls, and restart The IDSL.  I will certainly keep doing the audiobook stuff.  Might even get a job somewhere along the line.  We'll see what they'll let me do in that line.

 

I really need to redo that Outro with the new comment line and whatnot.  Some Day Real Soon Now.

I Remember Joe: 2010

Just heard the latest of these today, and I realized I'd forgotten this year.  Do I remember Joe?  No... and yeah, kinda.

And the rest of it isn't mine anyway, so go ahead and listen.
