EGC Clambake For March 30, 2006

Here is the Bittorrent link and direct MP3 download for the EGC clambake for March 30, 2006.

On this show, I play a song by No Walls; I talk about the first Uplifter meetings; I mourn the death of my (second) iPod Shuffle and fail to recommend the Mobiblu 1500i as a replacement; I play a song by The Gossip; I talk about homophobia and why I think serious homophobes are a danger to others; gay marriage doesn’t have the power to affect the sanctity of your marriage, silly rabbit; I play a song by Continuous Peasant and do the boot scoot boogie.

    I hate to say I told you so but I told you so. Did you hear Leo Laporte on Giz Wiz say that Creative Labs has been making far better mp3 players than Apple for a long time? I still love my Muvo. I also really like the Sony Frontopia ear buds. They actually have mini cabinets and are designed not to break. How refreshing. I actually didn’t hear this podcast yet but am about to. Funny how gays are the last minority it is okay to hate. I don’t care what people do in their bedrooms and I hate all people equally.

  2. You ramble? If you ramble, I guess John Coltrane rambled too. I guess anyone trying to take “giant steps” will ramble. You’re coming through loud and clear here in Taiwan. We don’t make Muvo’s here only IPods.

    I have to amend my comment. My Muvo is said to last 5 hours. I never needed it beyond that or even 4 hours so it ranks low in that regard. Hi Blues!

    You might want to look for an iRiver iFP700 or 800 series flash player on eBay. My iFP799 runs so long on a 2100 mAH cell, I can’t give you hours. I just swap the AA cell when it shuts off after several days @ about 4-5 hrs/day. I’ve given some thought to picking up a spare before they become scarce. Moore’s law argues against this strategy, though. I might grab a 256 MB unit as a backup for field recording in case something unfortunate happens to the ‘799.

    Thanks for the input guys. At this point, I’m slowly getting used to the crappy parts of the MobiBlu and learning to work around them. Really, I found the Shuffle far superior and perfect for what I want to do with it, but that whole going TU every 6 months is just not workable. Even if I move to something else I will keep the MobiBlu and maybe use it as a tiny emergency recorder for being out and about like Hugh and the iRiver.
