The first video that accompanies this post is from Chris Sheridan. More on Mr Sheridan later in the feed forward segment.

The second video that accompanies this post is in HD (if you getting this in iTunes or through a web browser, just click on the image and I'll take you there right now [ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jqxENMKaeCU ])

Its got some of the most beautiful aerial cinematography I've ever seen.

I watched it in HD on the home/office laptop and most of the footage is absolutely stunning.

It ends well too.

I agree with the conclusion of the movie: "Its too late to be pessimistic."

Its not an embed because that wasn't an option. You've got to go to Google to watch it.

I just came across a tweet on Twitter that immediately caught my attention.

 

Chris Sheridan, a.k.a @ mswithnofear is an MS blogger who seems to be my kind of person.

 

He has a video on YouTube (at the front of this post or you can click right now [ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5joocCR0u6U ])  that tells you to go to his site and download his ebook.

 

So I've just downloaded his free ebook from his site. [ http://www.mswithnofear.blogspot.com/ ] and it all makes sense.

 

I'm trying to line up an interview with him.

 

I  detect a kindred spirit in his "can do" "full speed ahead and damn the torpedoes" attitude.

 

I wish that this book had been around back in 1985 when I was diagnosed.

 

Best of luck to him.

I now have TWO sponsors.

I told you, way back when, getting the first one was the toughest.

Now I have two and it didn't take another three years and several thousands more dollars of spending on my part.

The links are synchronized with the messages on the m4a right now.

It you're listening on this through iTunes or through a web browser, just click on the image for the sponsor and I'll take you right to the appropriate web page.

If you're on an iPhone or an iPod touch, you should be good to go too.

----

The first sponsor, you should be all familiar with and maybe even have bought some t-shirts.[ http://www.artoshirt.net/servlet/the-MS-Artists/Categories ]

I'm still in love with my T-Shirts,

I'm wearing one right now.

The one by Mark Carpenter that says "Its the little things in life..." [ http://www.artoshirt.net/servlet/the-336/Little-things-by-Mark/Detail ]

Dang but it looks good.

I love black-and-white photography.

That sort of explains some of the posters and art hanging on the wall around here.

----

I received the CADDi in the mail, and, after trying it out, I feel that I can honestly recommend the CADDi by BARBCO. [ http://barbco.biz ]

The picture of the CADDi in use sort of says it all.

BarbCo is very generously giving a dollar of every order they process to a bunch of causes and YOU select the cause.

[ http://barbco.biz/MultipleSclerosis.htm ]

What the picture doesn't say however is that the the sleeve of the CADDi is customizable.

I'm going to try to get St Peter's College to carry it with their school logo on it.

The same thing goes for WSPC, the school's radio station.

I'm also going to pitch it at WFMU.org which i where I'm currently interning fr Mr. Doughlas Rushkoff [ http://rushkoff.com/ ] and at WBAI.org as promotional items to give away on fund raisers and the like.

The CADDI is for non MSers but it could/should be for us too.

Thesis:

 

I'm on again for a course on digital recording at school.

I'm also taking my vinyl and media shifting it to CDs and MP3s.

I should end up with a honking huge iTunes library. My music collection will end up almost filling a 320GB drive with over 20,000 items, continuous play time is going to run to maybe a couple of months

You can look forward to the next 400 shows recorded during the school semesters being made up of the results my media shifting.

Part of the reason is that I can get away with it because the school's licensing agreements.

This podcast is sort of under the radar while I'm in school, part of WSPC web streaming my show, so I can play anything.

Synthesis:

 

I'm listening to a podcast of "The Wall Street Journal This Weekend" as I type this, not for financial news (in my case finance is very simple, how poor have I gotten today?) but it is a sign of how fast the podcasting world is changing.

It is getting less insular as it moves from high-tech cults of personality like Adam Curry, Jason Calicanis, and Leo Laporte et alia, to non-profit broadcasters like NPR, PBS and WFMU  et alia, to corporate outfits like the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal and other corporate communicators.

I just have to stay alive and podcasting while the production techniques of other mass media outlets are melting down under the onslaught of the desertion of advertising from mass media.

I have some ideas that when I find a job again, i will start advertising in Momentum though it will not be to convince MSers to tune in but instead to convince makers of stuff for MSers to use MSBPodcast to get their stuff in front of people.

Its the same old story, a chicken and egg situation.

Conclusion:

 

I'm all set for my summer recording course.

Wish me luck. I could use the marks, the skill or just a job in a recording studio.
