Chillin' in Phoenix

Hey Sports fans-your favorite Bluesman is kickin it in Phoenix, AZ and enjoying the cool dry weather and vacation. Nice to spend time with my mom and meet some of her many friends she's told me about over the last couple of years. It's also a first meeting Evo Terra and Mike M. from Dragon Page. I'm actually sitting in the Dragon Page studio typing out this post. Summer of the Kick Ass Mystic Ninjas just walked in the door. Life could be a lot worse but in fact it keeps getting better.

I will attend a Chinese New Year celebration this Fri. eve at the Phoenix Chinese Cultural Center.

I'm a happy Bluesman today-I feature info/output from 2 of my favorite people from the blog/podosphere: Dave Slusher and Jonathan Coulton. Today's news piece is from Dave's post on Evil Genius Chronicles blog, and audio clip is from his Clambake of Jan. 12th. Jonathan graciously gave me a shout out on a mashup of some JC and Brad Sucks songs I published. He also has some video/JC song mashups linked in this post.
Public Enemy-No Meanin No (Brooklyn Bluesman Die SF remix)
JoCo's Brand New Brad Sucker(Brad Sucks:Dirt Bag Jonathan Coulton:Brand New Sucker, Town Crotch, Furry Lobster)

To immediately listen to this music station I've created simply click on this link or copy and paste it into your Internet browser: "Pirate Love Radio"

This station was generated off of inputting "Pirate Love" by the New York Dolls as my reference song.

This station plays on Pandora, a music listening and discovery service. Pandora
enables users to easily create streaming stations that explore their favorite
parts of the music universe.

Mindfield: Of Dreams and Sleep

I had heard about this project a week or so ago. I had no idea it was going to made available so soon, or what the terms of use were, or how absolutely kick ass the service would be. I'm talking about Pandora, a music service that lets you set up unlimited channels of music that it helps you select based on artist or song reccomendations you make. It then proceeds to emulate your taste. You can edit out any songs you don't like at any time. Best of all you can opt for free service(site will display ads) or paid service(ad-free).
Update: You can share your stations with friends via share/e-mail link Too cool for school!

Going Through the Dictionary-"A"

Realized while I was looking through my ITunes that there were many songs that got passed over due to my sorting by "date added." So expect a series of shows featuring stuff that got re-shuffled by"name." So today we begin with the numbered stuff and the "A"s. Play a promo for FreeCulture.org, one of my favorite activist groups, and give a shout out to the CC-home fries man-congrats on his happy 100th! Do a characterization based on Brooklyn: A State of Mind essay.

Giving credit where it is due

My Nana(grandmother) always taught me to "give credit where it is due." My main model for magnanamosity. The worthy recipient a hand is Craig Bonnell from the Swedes Please blog. This guy has great Swedish music reccommendations day in and day out, many of which have ended up on the podcast. Kudos Craig-have a slammin '06!
