Tom Ray, of Lorenzo’s Music, and I got the Music Manumit podcast going this weekend. We had technical difficulties on the pilot episode, but Episode 0 will go up soon. You can get my raw recording for the pilot epidsode. It’s released under CC-BY-SA. Also, you can get the unedited of the “second” show. Note that the first is in flac (lossless) and the second is in ogg (due to problems the first time). I also recorded on UStream. I need to change the name of the USteam feed, but not going to worry about that now. We’ve also got an IRC channel on Freenode called #musicmanumit. If you’re not familiar with IRC there is a web client where you can name yourself whatever. No need to register. We are going to release a “New” show and a “Music-only” show. Both should be in mp3 as well as ogg. Though Tom and I both dislike mp3, we’re hoping to reach an audience that does not know about software freedom and free culture and help the understand the benefits and release there is a lot of enjoyable music out there in every genre.
June 10th I leave for the World Cup. I will be blogging for Sportazine while there. I ended up speaking a bit about my planning struggles on Music Manumit, even though it really had nothing to do with music. We did discuss the opening ceremonies at the World Cup a it though.
Missed a blog post in May, but I’ve been hitting the dating scene hard and though I don’t know yet how things will turn out, I definitely have a keeper at the moment. I also just moved, which is a painful process, but I really like my new place other than the loft bedroom being rather warm. I don’t have Internet right now because TDS doesn’t do data-only to where I live and I had avoided Charter at first since their website does not support Linux.
