Here’s last night’s show, ready to download. http://www.mediafire.com/?ax9tsqc1gtz4aye
It took me awhile to get really rolling, it felt like. Possibly because even with the heater on it was an icicle in the office. You can hear my teeth chattering. And I made the –now I see– poor decision to read a rather long article about fake art and fake artistry that I should have just summarized. Later on I read a story from the Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction. (Goddess by, I think, Albert E. Cowdrey). F&SF is a great magazine full of wonderful stories and it’s way worth the subscription price; they only put out six issues a year anymore but they’re fat ones, double-thick. Here.
Bob Young’s electronical efforts seem to have finally paid off: the stream to the transmitter site stayed connected the whole show. Yay about that.
I’m hoping to put in the new microphones and their shock supports this week, and tomorrow I’ll order the limiter we need for between the mixing board and the streaming computer. I had thought to use my homemade one, but it turns out to not be good enough, and a new one is so cheap. Suspiciously cheap. I don’t want to be contributing to worker suicides in some dystopian factory city hellhole in China. But we need the part. Tch… Oh, look, a butterfly.

Here’s a part from the middle of a movie about different people’s subway stories. Where the drunken rapping boy says, “I got /skeelz/,” it stuck in my mind. /Mad skeelz/. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C7Yym7FwbPY
