FeedBack comes first, so...


I'm waiting for things to arrive.

I've got a book coming, the dead-tree edition of "Free - The Future of a Radical Price" by "Chris Anderson".

He's is editor-in-chief of Wired Magazine and he's got a nice voice and delivery.

I'll be giving you the Amazon link to the dead tree edition because I think there's any more free downloadable ebook copy.

 (The book is here at last. [

And here is a two-tiered business model:

• one tier is a free model for the little birdies {the cheap, cheap, cheap} which is, perforce, an ad supported model {viz: my sponsors} and

• one tier is a free-mium model where for a subscription price of $50.00 per year the ads are separated out onto their own section of the wiki and don't intrude into a weekly, hour-long version of the program of the music with my commentary.])

I'm also waiting for a Samson Zoom R16 8 Track SD Recorder Controller Interface and then everything about my recording of this show might change, or it might not... It depends on various things...

I just bought a new cane.

Its the same ergonomic type as my current red one. (Red in nature is a warning, as in "Don't screw with me 'cause I can "kill' your [expletive deleted { Indian Elephant Sound effect }] ass!")

Ever notice that the curve on a cane is one way  while the curve of your hand i diametrically the other way.

My "pommel" handled cane provides me with the best and most stable support. I'm hoping to get an email from the manufacturer. (I've got other potential sponsors in mind too.)

This is "your" segment.

Say "your" piece on this segment.

Share with other MSers whatever "you" want to share.

Drop us an email: "charles at MSBPodcast.com"

This rightfully belongs in the Feed Forward segment.

I am starting to expand msbpodcast.com into an actual web radio station.

Starting in January 2010, msbpodcast will have an interactive component which will be called MS Web Radio [ http;//www.MSWebRadio.com ]

Right now its not operative and its only a repeater to bring people to the msbpodcast.com site but I'm going to retool the web site to handle the web radio component.

It will also be podcast so if you don't get to it, it will still be available after the airing.

MS Web Radio will be held for a half an hour every Sunday afternoon at 3PM (15:00) my time.

I will be taking my definitely, uh, unusual show and opening it up to everybody.

I'll keep you posted on my progress as it happens.

I'm working on it... I'm working on it... I'm cursing and working, but I'm working on it.

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,

There is one called "At the Back" by Karolina Wojdak [ http://www.artoshirt.net/servlet/the-370/MS/Detail ] which is beautiful in a deeply intriguing way. I am always fascinated by the way artists perceive the world.

They see the same thing we mere mortals do but they seem to take away a very different mental image from the same landscape my ultra- or magic-realist eyes merely sees.

I would try to out texture a fractal. That's why I'm glad to be involved in audio. (Although back when Wendy was Walter, I played with the shapes of sound waves and how that affected our auditory perception.)

I hope you folks out there are buying these because I'm not going to be outside much to look at them once the heat hits.


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  off  every order they process to a bunch of causes and YOU select the cause.

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

I'm talking with her, well we're Twittering and emailing back and forth, about having promo code for MSers.

The CADDI is for non MSers but it ought to be for us too.

I'm taking a break this episode and digesting the dead tree on tender hooks version of "Free - The Future of a Radical Price" by "Chris Anderson".

Wednesday, I watched episode 1 of "Ascent of Money" which to quote the PBS website, is "A four-part series that chronicles how the modern financial system came to be, including the evolution of money, the relationship between money and war, the role that risk plays in creating wealth and the interconnected nature of the global economy."

I'm waiting on tender hooks for my Samson R16 8 Track SD Recorder Controller Interface.

Its quite a trial testing all of these virtual "control surfaces" but I think I'm going to be sticking with the one that comes bundled in, Cubase 4 LE (the LE means "bundled in", doan'ch'nö [No Sir, I did not know. :-])

It seems to be the best of the lot.

---- "Dirtbag" by: "Will Kriski" http://www.willkriski.com/



 So I'm sitting at my desk with a three computers computer keyboards (2 Mac laptops and a PC desktop,) an M-Audio KeyStudio 25 MIDI keyboard, a Behringer 1204 FX mixer three mikes, four external hard drives and I'm going to have to make room for my new R16. Since the mixer is being replaced, it can go and old PowerBook can go too I guess.

I'm already going through some Cubase 4 LE videos and literature I found on the web in anticipation.

I'm facing some question as to where I'm going to put the DAW (the digital audio workstation.) Something is going to end up on the floor. You'll see why in a moment.

I'm listening to another audiobook"The Conservatory" by "Michele Roger" [ http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewPodcast?id=292035313 ].

I wasn't into chapter two but I was seized by an intense wish to get into composing again.

Chapter 1 ends with a little improvised Irish piece piano and harp piece called "Separation of Body and Soul" that stirred something in me that I had long thought out of reach.

I will be using my MIDI keyboard, some instrument samples, GarageBand, Cubase 4 or some combination of the two and I will be composing and playing again.

It will not be live, like I did with my guitar, but I will instead be using all of this technology to play again.

I will enjoy making music again. Composing two part inventions, partitas and whatever else strikes my fancy.

It'll take more time but it will be easier to get the timing right than it ever was. No more practicing and endless repetition.

Its been so long. Too long.

---- "Kick Bag" by: "BronweN" http://www.bronwenmusic.com/




I'm going to enjoy this.

When the R16 gets here I'm going  to move some things off the desk and set myself up to do all kinds of things with it.

MIDI instruments are my FRIENDS.

As you will see in the upcoming episodes, no, don't worry, I wont subject you to my own paying, but I will start inserting pieces as my theme and incidental music.
