I suppose it is a testament to how busy I have been that I am just now posting this. I actually started working in July.
Ampslam.com is dedicated to independent music. If you have any question, comments, or suggestions about the site, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, in the comments here, or basically anywhere where you can find me!

As many people no doubt did, I got an email from David Rovics about his fall tour. I asked him if the information was online somewhere and he said no. For the time being, I am correcting that problem:
Hi folks in New Hampshire,
OK so I realize the kids aren’t even getting out of school yet and summer
hasn’t technically begun yet, but I’m already making plans for September,
because that’s the way these things work…
I’m planning on being all the way up and down the east coast in the fall to
meet and greet politicians at both the Republican and Democratic National
Conventions in Florida and North Carolina, to do various shows in the
southeastern and northeastern US — hopefully including New Hampshire!
And the whole way this shoestring operation of mine works in a nutshell is
I make plans to go somewhere and then I blindly hope that some people in
their right minds will decide that one thing they want to do with their
life now is organize a gig for David Rovics when he next comes to town…
So if one of those people might be you, I look forward to hearing from you!
Hope to see you on the road and in the streets in this year of 2012!
Also, David is right, it is time to schedule for September. If you are in a Creative Commons band and you would like to speak with Tom and I on our show, Music Manumit, let me know!

jamendoAwards2011 – Jamendo.
Make sure you vote for Madison’s own Lorenzo’s Music in the Pop category as well as in the Rock category.
Other suggestions are:
Professor Kliq – Electro
David Rovics – World
Pete Prodoehl – Experimental and Instrumental
Emcee Lynx – Urban
Obviously you can check out the Music Manumit Podcast for other artists I’d suggest.

We put out the call to all of our interviewees for people they think we should interview, but often we don’t get very many suggestions. What about you, my loyal blog readers, who do you think we should interview. You can post here, hit me up on Status.Net or leave us some voice feedback at 646-495-9205 x 36355.
Also, I apologize about missing September, but if you want to know about what’s going on in my life, you should probably just listen to the podcast.

Ha! I started this draft on March 28th and never typed a word. No reason to speculate why, but here I am, nearly a month later fixing that. 🙂
We’ve got a StatusNet install, an OpenAtrium install, a Drupal install, a trac install and a news install up at what we are calling OSP for short.
We’ve contemplated updating the plan I have with DreamHost, but until AdBard revenue is higher, I can’t justify it considering I’m still looking for a roommate for my move and we’ll be paying $1100 a month for a couple months if I don’t find someone. Ad revenue the first month was $0.20, but considering we got that going at the end of the month and it was only on one of our sites, I was ok with that.
Tom Ray of Lorenzo’s Music and I are starting a podcast called “Music Manumit”. I’m dubbing Sunday’s episode “Episode -1” because it’s a test. I’m going to see if Tom will let us release it though.
I’m finishing up my web dev class with P2PU this Sunday. I haven’t done as much work on the class as I’d like, but on the upside that’s because I’ve started dating again. It had been almost a year since I went on a date. There were a lot of reasons for this, chief among them being the statistics course I took last semester.
So, I missed a potentially great talk on Linux because of user issues today. It also reminded me that I need to fix the sound issue in my VM. I really hate VMs, but I have to use one until Evolution works with Exchange 2007.

Several things are coming up and I need to know how best to help you and the Madison community.
October 20th is the next MadLUG meeting. We don’t yet have a topic. We could do something on Python or have a bit of a state of the union and really figure out what we want to do with the LUG. LUG attendance has really been pathetic. Should we move to Saturday meetings like they have in Milwaukee?
November 1st is the next Open Everything event. We do not have very many people signed up. We want to have this event in Pewaukee at a fabulous location, but if people don’t sign up, it’s not going to happen.
November 13th-ish we are going to have Open Music Madison. We don’t have a firm date, because our 1st choice of venues fell through. It looks like we may have to charge $5 a head. I don’t like it, but doing something is better than waiting to have the perfect event I say.
If you have ever been to an OE Madison or to a MadLUG meeting, please leave your thoughts or e-mail me directly at douglasawhREMOVEFORREALZ@gmail.com
