shake shake shake!

Well. The first edit/rewrite of the Crescent is done. The next round will include polishing and the hand-over to my first reader.


I finished the final chapter last night and was pleasantly surprised to be able to say - "Gee. I kinda like the way that ended." Well, those might not have been my words *exactly*. I probably said something to the effect of - "I'm so tired. This bed feels so good...and oh yeah, that didn't suck so much."

A reminder: next week is the final round of Pickle Tales (holy toledo!). Its down to me and the mighty, Laurence Simon. I suspect the gloves are off and things should be really, really entertaining.

Current research (milk-shooting-out-the-nostrils goodness):

I think we're straightened out here, more or less

Well, the sum total of the grief here was switching the act of switching from the old school blogger to the google powered blogger. I think every thing is back on track. Thanks to PG Holyfield and Zach Upton for a. discovering the problem (PG) b. pointing out when it had gotten worse (Zach).

And while I'm in a thankful mood -

Thanks to all you awesome people for voting me through to the final round of Pickle Tales.

That's all for now. If you're feeling unfufilled -- go hug a puppy.

more technical difficulties

Well gang, the feed is all twisted. Episodes are being released to new subscribers out of order - and maybe even 're-released' to you current subscribers in wacky order. Wacky!

I'm working on it. :) Thanks for the patience.

Technical Difficulties

Apparently, none of the FTP episodes are showing up on iTunes and possibly even other podcatchers. I'm lookin' into this and will hopefully have the feed working again.

And if not.

I'll just change providers - blogger be damned!

pickle tales round 5

I can't believe this competition is nearing the end. Go check this latest round out at the PodCast Pickle forums and vote for your favorite.

This round I wanted to take the opportunity to promote some of the great stuff out there that is available under the Creative Commons License.

Music appearing in my entry was found on the PodShow podsafe music network. Which is also really worth checking out. You can find that here.

The artists: Adhesion, Fonkmasters, Colie Brice.

I found most of my sound effects on the Freesound Project which can be found here:

And here is a listing of the effects I used in round 5. Freesound will actually create an html list for the user to make giving credit where credit is due easier: Sound Effects Listing (opens in a new window)

episode 15.5: i'm still here, but you probably knew that already

My lovely listeners, here is a brief audio update as well as a promo for Captain Tee Morris and his upcoming and anticipated new PodCast novel:

I make an appearance in Billibub Baddings, so be sure to check it out!

As requested, Daylight Come, the Pickle Tales round 4 winner, has been posted on MySpace for download. Sorry it took me so long to get it you.

That's it for now. In addition to the continuing Pickle Tales saga, you'll hear my voice on an upcoming skit on Comedy4Cast. In addition to that, I'll be doing a read for the kick ass podcast Barfly very soon.

For those of you that have sent me promos to play (and voice mails) I have not forgotten about you. You'll be in the next full show. Promise :)

I have not Pod Faded

I haven't pod-faded, in case you're all wondering. Believe it or not, I actually recorded Episode 16 of Filling the Page last week. It was rushed and just not up to the standards of quality I've come to impose on myself. So, I won't be posting it.

I'm investing my efforts into the Pickles Tales competition at the moment and that, along with a couple of other PodCast projects, is taking up the casting bandwidth. The PodCast will be back in Febuary, full force. I'll continue to work on all my other projects between now and then ,with the plan to have some new, cool stuff to share when I do release Episode 16. You see, for me, it's more important that I produce a good podcast and not just release episodes for the sake of meeting a schedule. It's not for lack of love for you, my audience - if anything, it's the opposite.

I'll be posting my round four winning tune - Daylight Come (Penelope's Song) on the feed tonight.

Below is a shot from Friday night's show courtesy of Zach. Iota is, hands down, one of my favorite places to play. Ever.

And today's APOD is just to cool not to share:

Pickle Tales Round 4

Voting runs until tomorrow at noon, my little friends. Sorry I haven't posted on this sooner! This was a really challenging round for everyone involved. I talk about that in more detail in the forthcoming episode of FTP. Keep your ears peeled (pealed?) Until then, go check out Round 4!

This Friday night, I'm playing double duty at Iota in Arlington. The Pharmacy Prophets are headlinging and I just discovered I will be doing a solo set (along with Steve) to kick off the night. Hope to see some of you out there!
