Holy shit - we're already up to 3!! Vowed this would be the beginning, or the end, of the dicks&janes podcast, so listen and find out. Further thanks to Bob & AJ for not being Adam Curry, the real Bob & AJ (again), character flaws, plug for Uncut magazine. New intro with a Kerouac laugh and some juju music, and a show fueled by plenty of vin rouge. Oh ya, and a shitty birthday too.

Dicks&Janes Podcast #1 - four months in the making, and you wouldn't know it!

Listening to Adam Curry's DSC yesterday I heard the promo for Kobe Beef, which otherwise I never would have found. It's very good, and I'm impressed with Terrence's show, and his rambling insights. Now wondering if I should still try and go ahead with mine, or make it more of a talk show, or... So ya, no further ahead, but the idea ain't dead - yet. Main problem is I can't afford the time!!! I've got a business to run!

time standing still - not

Well, 2 podcasts cemented together now, and a good start on dicksnjanes podcast #3. But not much further ahead in figuring how where and how to post these so that someone out there can actually listen to them! May ask Bob of Bob & AJ for some help and guidance...

now in reverse!

Saturday morning, normally my favourite time of the week, but now simply frustrated. That nasty feeling that comes when you don't have a clue what you're doing - in this case trying to write an rss to go with my mp3 so that others can find and listen to the First Dicks&Janes podcast. Already started on the 2nd, but so far, only one listener- by CD!

standing still

Not much progress; finished the podcast but haven't decided yet if, how and where I should put it up for grabs. Thinking of a new .Mac account, useful for other things too. Also sent in a piece to Bob & AJ, and hope maybe they'll choose to use it in their show - but no idea, and no control. My note said 'you decide'. I have to assume they got it okay.

Song playing on random - 'Reach for the sky cuz tomorrow may never come.' True eh...

...and yet, so close

Weird! Somehow managed to get thru all the crap that threatened to destroy this podcast before I even got started, and sure as shit, was able to put some pieces together last night and this morning, digest it all while walking back to Thompson Park, and - Houston- we have Liftoff!! Well not quite, but a hell of a lot closer than I was yesterday - just have to figure out where and how to put it up, that first Dicks&Janes podcast.

And, almost as a sign, on the walk home I tuned in the latest Bob & AJ Show - and guess what - there I was!! That guy from Scarborough - me!! On the Bob & AJ podcast!! Now how cool is that eh! If that ain't a sign to go forward, then man, I can't imagine what more I'd need to get going. Thanks guys!

long way to go...

This seems like yet another step backwards in my as yet very tentative attempts to create and post a podcast. Beginning to doubt I'll ever get there, cuz the longer it takes, the more I have to wonder why I want to anyway... It seemed so clear earlier, but with all the time wasted doing the technical stuff, the fun gets lost. Maybe best to keep it simple, and stick with my unrehearsed rants using just iTalk on the iPod eh. Nothing fancy, no need to race after Adam Curry....
