FeedBack comes first, so...

 

Okay, there isn't any. Considering that its been about my opsies lately, I don't mind. :-)

FeedForward

 

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.

FeedMe 

 

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.

Thesis:

 

There's not much happening because there's too much to do.

I am currently digitizing all my vinyl and that has to be done in "real time".

So I'm going to play some music by the "Wyrd Sisters" and the video is one of their performances too.

Its also the name of one of a series of DiskWorld novels by Terry Prachett featuring a bevy of central characters, none more central than Granny Weatherwax, (though Nany Ogg would beg to differ.)

---- "Travel" by: "The Wyrd Sisters" http://www.wyrdsisters.com/

 


Synthesis:

 

I am torn about whether to continue on my original course or to tell you of the awe and majesty of he Disk World and so lift your lives from the dreary and the mundane up to the imaginative and fantastic.

I "was" making this a show about imagination and the perfect execution that is shown in the second YouTube video accompanying this episode but...

Oh Hells!

Here goes very little.

Sit, sit. Are you all sitting comfortably?([shouted] Sit the [expletive deleted] down!)

We're going to go on a overflight of a most unusual place, consisting of a disk of earth and water, resting on the shoulders of four gigantic elephants all riding on the shell of "A'toon" the space faring turtle.

This place, a plate which is an entire world, consists of a pair of continents and an enormous ocean girt round by a circumfence.

The continents are the separate  XXXX, aka Terror Incognita, and the Agatean Empire on the counterweight continent which is thinly connected to the main conjoined kingdoms of Klatch and Ramtops.

Its populated by all manner of characters from the wizards of the unseen university in Ankh Morpork to the witches of Lancre and from the

 

 fearsome residents of the mountain of Überwald to the sinister touaregs of the deserts of Djelibeybi, passing through the more colorful characters who make The Shades in Ankh-Morpork such an interesting place to visit, at high speed.

Yes, cartography of the place is quite fascinating on the diskworld.

---- "Unforgiven" by: "The Wyrd Sisters" http://www.wyrdsisters.com/ 

 


Conclusion:

 

Now, I will endeavor to tell you that heads much wiser, and closer to the block, than mine have determined that "A'Toon"is a "female" space-faring chelonic.

I'll let that sink in, shall I?

What adventures can be had on a disk, carried on the shoulders of four elephants, riding atop a space faring turtle?

Let your imaginations run wild... Terry Pratchett certainly did.
