EGC Clambake Episode for Dec 31, 2004

Here is the Bittorrent link and direct MP3 download for the EGC clambake for December 31, 2004.

This is either the last podcast of 2004 or the first of 2005 – we’ll have to see how the official scorers mark it. There is an odd intermittent clicking that I didn’t hear at record time, so I might have to burn some of that karma I talked about in the Wired article. Oh well, you podcast the audio you have not the audio you want.

In this episode, I send my good wishes for a speedy recovery to Tony Kahn; I discuss my correspondence with Russian composer Artemiy Artemiev; I play some listener audio feedback; I talk about the Wired article and Kevin Devin; I talk about how the linearity of speaking things causes me to wig out sometimes; I play a song by the Bambi Molesters and talk about sneaking them into WREK’s rotation; I talk about how I accidentally dumped 3 months of radio shows I was saving and how that made me feel free; I discuss my own issues with anal retention; play a bit from a BBC 4 documentary on Dungeons and Dragons.

This episode is sponsored in part by the fine folks at iPodderX!

  1. I just want to say that the more podcasts I listen to, and the more IT Conversations I consume on blogging and podcasting, the more I am inspired to improve and build my own weblog. So your efforts and the time you spend on podcasts serve to create conversations and build community. There is a feedback mechanism in blogging and podcasting. Thanks Dave!

  2. hi dave, I’m new to the world of podcasting, and have enjoyed your last two shows. On the clip of the Radio4 BBC programme on D&D, the Scottish voice you heard dissing D&Ders was one Dominik Diamond, a minor celebrity here in the UK. He is most famous for presenting a now defunct TV show on videogames called “Gamesmaster”, and currently presents a new show called “When Games Attack” on British satellite TV channel Bravo. He is also writes a regular newspaper column and has presented several other TV shows here, as well as being a sometime stand up comedian. Check out his entry on Wikipedia. earlier this year he gave a talk on working in the media to the students at the Cumbria Institute of the Arts (in North of England), and someone kindly recorded the presentation in MP3 ( so if you dig him, check it out! Best wishes, and keep up the interesting podcasts!

  3. Darren, interesting stuff. Thanks for the feedback.

    Alan, thanks for the information. I, of course, have never heard of this guy here in the US. He sounded like the kind of guy who has that “professional raconteur” delivery down, kind of like a Dennis Miller or Bill Maher. I might listen to that thing. I don’t care what the hell he says or how stupid it is, I just like that accent.

  4. Here’s a connection that I thought you might find mildly interesting given your comments about linearity in this podcast.

    You mentioned correspondence with Artemiy Artemiev of Electroshock records. On the same day that I listened to that part of your podcast (Friday 7 Jan) I did a websearch for a Cd by an Italian musician, Oophoi, and discovered that some of his stuff is on the Electroschock label. Oophoi came to my attention by listening to a programme on BBC Radio 3 named Late Junction, and in that same podcase you had an excerpt from BBC Radio 4.

    Given that you say you are into ambient music I reckon some of the Late Junction output might be to your taste. It’s available over the net by using the Listen Again links. Radio 3 is mainly a classical station, but they also broadcast new music. There’s another program, Mixing It, which has weird and sometimes wondrous new stuff.
