Somehow I managed to isolate all my vocals in the left channel on my podcast. I'll fix it, but I can't get to my website until after MobileMe is up and running. So, in the event that any of you had downloaded it before the site went down, listen at your own risk -- it sounds shitty. Wait until tomorrow evening, when I will have had a chance to reupload, presuming the DotMac-MobileMe switch doesn't go horribly awry. In which case, I will have more pressing issues on my mind than the podcast.
phamos: (twilight)
I will be posting a new link to the new episode of Radio Free Misanthropy as soon as the DotMac to MobileMe transition finishes tomorrow. Until then, here's a sneak peak at what you'll be listening to...

Check it out -- Radio Free Misanthropy (The Podcast Generation) Episode Two! Now with space for comments! Be aware, this link will load the podcast as a very large Quick Time file that plays in your browser. To get it downloaded straight to iTunes, you can subscribe on the home page. So it looks like I'm doing these at a rate of about once a month, which gives me time to gather up good music and then vomit it all out, leaving me without anything new to share and starting the cycle over again. Thank you, Abby, XMU, and Hype Machine, because without you there would be no Radio Free Misanthropy. Also, my drives to work would be much less fun.

Cool thing I just did: Went back and put markers with chapter titles after each song on my podcast. Then, when I synced the podcast with my iPhone and put it in widescreen/Cover Flow mode, tapping the screen once brings up a track listing within the podcast -- just like an album despite the fact that it's a single file. Easy to navigate! Skip the last 4 minutes of "Goodbye Horses" because it's extremely repetitive! Skip the parts where I talk because you find my voice annoying! It's all up to you, the listener!

Good thing I just learned: iPhoto has always been the bane of my existence, with the twenty different levels of file storage and duplicates and pictures totally disappearing on me because I moved the file around or something, whatever, I don't know. Well, iPhoto '08 has the iPhoto library in your Pictures folder as a single package. This makes it seem like you can't access those pictures, which might be extremely annoying. But really what it does is keep them out of sight so it's harder for you to mess with where they're stored in the hierarchy rather than change the organization within iPhoto. That way they don't disappear on you. But you CAN access the library hierarchy by right clicking and selecting "Show Package Contents" -- and, as someone over on TUAW suggested, you can create an alias of those contents to put in your pictures folder or on your desktop, so that you can access the files if you need to attach them to an email or otherwise upload them somewhere, but you wouldn't actually be fiddling with the data itself. And now, when I rearrange my pictures in iPhoto, it just rearranges them in that library package behind the scenes, so I won't have multiple copies in multiple locations and won't accidentally delete the one that actually IS still linked in iPhoto leaving a giant annoying "missing picture" graphic in its wake. I look forward to playing with this more. A lot of people find it counterintuitive to make it HARDER to access those pictures from the finder, but it honestly makes a lot more sense than the way iPhoto data was saved before.

Awesome thing I plan to do now: Sleep.

you know what's a fun word to say?


it's the generic name for one of my skin cremes.

it sounds like when homer goes "trambampoline!" which is also fun to say.

i'm on the guestlist for msshapes, and i guess i could go soon, but even though i have nothing to do here i really don't want to go downtown all by myself right now. i could if it was trash, because it seems more loosened up there. but misshapes is a lot more serious. still fun, but i dunno. i should just look for a way to pass the time here. don't want to stay out late becaus ei actually have something to do tomorrow afternoon -- i'm dj-ing a mini-set at the WBAR 4th of july barbecue. it's for the kids in the summer program here. i'm really looking forward to it. here's my planned little setlist:

radio free misanthropy! on WBAR! right now! go!
phamos: (mario)
wednesday: the killers at mercury lounge, houston street at avenue a, $10, doors open at 7:30 pm. the killers are a band that's just over its peak of trendyness in the uber-elite hipster circles. still, it will be a huge line since tickets are only available at the door. i plan to get there at 6 to wait.

thursday: listen to radio free misanthropy on WBAR, barnard college radio! this week, expect songs by james, the fever, dressy bessy, david bowie, and jj fad, among many others. tune in from noon to 2.

also thursday: the onion's "slacker and loser comics that we like" show, at the new york improv, $7 on internet, $15 at door, 9 pm. features some of my new favorites that i've mentioned on here before, like dimitri martin and eugene mirman.

friday: ted leo and the pharmacists at the south street seaport. never listened to him, but i know he's indie and it's free, so if it's a nice day out, why not go?

also friday: les savy fav at volume, 99 N. 13th Street at wythe in williamsburg, $16, doors at 10 pm. with q and not u and el guapo. i'll be taking my first-ever ride on the G train afterwards to april's party.

also friday: trash, at rififi, 11th st. between 1st and 2nd aves, free, 10 pm. went last week, hope to go again this week after the les savy fav show.

saturday: fahrenheit 911. might be going with brooks. i have my problems with michael moore, especially when he steps on camera to be the empathetic ear of his man-on-the-street-type interviews, which i find really disingenuous. but i am part of the choir and wish to be preached to. after all, it is shabbat.

also saturday: misshapes at luke and leroys. also went last week, and it seems to get going late, but it's a pretty cool space and it's an open bar, for anyone that's interested. rsvp to

sunday: the whitest kids u know at pianos, free at 8 pm. yeah, still haven't gone. but if amanda's still here, maybe we'll go.
phamos: (Default)
a reminder: my radio show starts at noon. you can comment over on my blog. that's also where the playlist will end up.
phamos: (mario)
my show, radio free misanthropy, starts at noon. i'll be posting the playlist here. this is also meant to be an open comment thread for anyone who wants to post as the show goes on.

edited to add: that was a bit of a rocky start. next time i'll start straight from my ipod, not dick around with a cd. and i'll remember to turn everything else off. :/

edited to add: no one has a show after me, apparently, so i'm just chilling here with my ipod on shuffle until i get bored. where was everybody? bandit is my only friend.

wednesday: bloomsday on broadway at symphony space, broadway at 95th street, noon to midnight, $18 (students $16). this annual marathon celebration of james joyce's ulysses features a cast of more than 100 actors performing and reading passages from the great novel. i figure i'll go for a little while and see if i understand the book better when someone reads it TO me.

also wednesday: invite them up at rififi, 11th avenue between 1st and 2nd streets, 8 pm, $5. eugene mirman and bobby tisdale host stand-up, sketches, films and readings. i saw eugene mirman at that last comedy show i went to. he's really funny and makes pretty funny short films.

thursday: the emerging comics of new york awards at the laugh lounge, essex between rivington and stanton, 8pm, $10 and 2 drink minimum. discover which up-and-coming comedians are about to bust through the roof of alternative clubs at this second annual awards show dedicated solely to emerging talent.

also thursday: radio free misanthropy, WBAR barnard college radio, noon to 2pm. yay, my first show of the summer! Look forward to songs by the bravery, le tigre, guns 'n' roses, and division of laura lee, among many others.

friday: rock and rollerskate at office ops, knickerbocker and thames in east williamsberg (morgan street L stop), 9 pm, $5. skate circles around these bands! they don't care, they're in a cage. live music by man in gray, the atomic missiles, and morning theft. in between band sets league radio deejays will knock your socks off. in the bunny skate room DJ dreemy is wheels a' steeling your heart. skates are limited, so come early, or you're welcome to bring your own.

saturday: the bravery with benzos, dirty on purpose, and sons of sound, at mercury lounge, houston street at essex, 8:30 pm (bravery goes on at 11:30), $8. i'm obsessed with seeing the bravery, because i really like the mp3s i got off their website.

the most blissful moment of the whole trip to pittsburgh? picture: driving home after the rowing trip, pitch black out, segev driving really aggressively and sneezing like crazy, me clutching my seat, terrible music playing on every radio station the whole way. suddenly, a radio station we'd never picked up before appears on the dial, playing "she's lost control". both of us just go, "oh, YEAH!" we listen to the whole song, totally psyched. segev's driving calms and his sneezing recedes. ian curtis is soothing us. after the song, the station goes to commercial, so i flip stations. on the next go-round of the dial, the station is gone as mysteriously as it came. no more signal, no more joy division, no nothing. it's as if the gods of manchester knew we needed a little relief just at that moment and smiled on us.
phamos: (mario)
i'll be dj-ing on the barnard college radio station this summer, playing upbeat indie, rap and pop. the show will be on thursdays from noon to two. i believe it will start next week, not this week. so listen! i'll be posting reminders and set lists here.
phamos: (honey)
i just got an email that said i've gotten a dj slot again for this summer. i'm going to be on thursdays noon to two, playing all upbeat-type music. i don't think i'll be on this thursday, because i'll probably have to train again before i go on. but i'll give updates on my blog as to whether or not shows will be going on and what the setlists were. you will be able to listen at wbar's website. so enjoy!

air america, the new liberal talk radio station, has blogs for two of its shows, the majority report (janeane garofalo) and the o'franken factor (al franken). the majority report is the better show, but the o'franken blog is better by leaps and bounds. but now, there's a blog for the whole station. um. but it's not run by the station. it's called, uh, bore america. which, indeed, is often fitting.
