I was a little political in the sixteenth episode of TheBlogcast. I petition the show’s listener to fight back against ACTA, which ultimately failed. It keeps rearing its head under different alias’ though. Most recently, pieces of it were embedded into the TPP. Keep fighting for your privacy, folks.
There was a live release by Matthew Good a few years back where he comments how part of being an artist is the permanent record of one’s own idiocy. He was commenting on one of his own tracks and some of its lyrics and how moronic they were. I listened to the opening of this episode and I truly felt embarrassed. I am not the same guy now that I was back in 2009. I actually considered not re-posting this episode, but I felt that it was important that I did. To me, it demonstrates that people can and do change. I do apologize for the cold opening of this episode. Take comfort in knowing I’m not the same man.
The thirteenth episode was paying homage to what inspired me to do my own podcast to begin with– Rough Sundays which was produced by Aric S. Queen. Rough Sundays was a show dedicated to those waking up after a good Saturday night. Strangely enough, the resurfacing of his podcast in recent weeks is also partially responsible for me bringing my own show back. Bandwagoning? Perhaps. Do I care? Not really.
In lucky number 13, I was apparently ranty about something. Not sure what it was yet, as I’m still listening to it. Will I actually reveal what I’m somewhat pissy about? Listen to find out.
The carton of eggs episode where I talk about Johnson exercises gone wrong.
The all indie show. In this episode, I play nothing but unsigned acts and marvel at the amount of great music out there that no one is listening to.
In the tenth show of TheBlogcast, I celebrate by doing a little dance but offer the listeners nothing in return. The music gets shaken up a bit by offering some Japanese pop and rock. I also talk about a study about gamers and depression.
In this 9th episode of TheBlogcast, I play some cottage time requests and comment on the Bill Clinton North Korea reporter rescue. The show has found itself at this point.
At the time of this recording, the City of Toronto city workers were on strike so I whined about that and I also got excited about an upcoming cottage getaway.
A Canada Day show. All Canadian bands/artists. Some recognizable, some iconic, and some that you might barely remember. On the bright side, no Justin Bieber.
