I started this Blog to get back to a more regular writing habit to express my opinions and views on music, books, etc. which may also get re-edited and posted to the O.D. (http://www.odmag.com) website.

MPAD#8 -- This Night Has Opened My Eyes
(This is the fabulous pic. Paul took of Erica Durance)
Most People Are DJ's #8 could be my best podcast yet!
It's the Poptopia/Most People Are DJs crossover episode as Paul French and I spar back and forth over who our favorite superhero is, what we thought of the Toronto Comic Convention, what we think of Marilyn Manson and more!
songs by The Mobius Band, The Positive Touch Experience
Media Clip by Marilyn Manson
And a really funny mashup (you'll have to listen to find out what it is)
So check it out on Friday, September 2nd.

Preview to this Weeks Most People Are DJs
Since my podcast is taking over the majority of my free time I'm going to use this blog as an extension of it. Here are some of the topics I'm planning for this weeks show:
Music: The Orange Peels
Ten In the Swear Jar
Reviews: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Once Upon A Time In Mexico
a mashup from Mashuptown Radio
There's been a bit of disturbing news on the podcasting front that the RIAA may start cracking down on podcasts that play unliscensed music. While, like most podcasters, I get permission for most of what I play, I think we should be able to play whatever we want because the quality is similar to FM Radio. Those people that are editing podcasts to get music are not getting very high quality music. If the labels were smart they would look at podcasts as another avenue of promotion like so many friendly indie bands do.

My Very Own Podcast: Most People Are DJs!
I've started my own podcast "Most People Are DJs" where I spew incessantly about stuff I think other people need to know about.
You can download directly from here - (save as MP3)
The title comes from a lyric by the Hold Steady, an awesome band, I've hopefully mentioned before. The coolest news is they'll be on Late Night with Conan O'Brien on July 19, and Last Call With Carson Daly on July 20th -- DO NOT MISS IT!!!!
Other stuff -- Have you been watching Entourage this season? It's geat!
I've also been trying to catch all the Veronica Mars epsiodes I missed out on.

I'm on a Podcast!
A couple of nights ago I met up with a couple other guys at the Detroit Podcasters Group. We had a couple of beers and loads of fun -- even better we recorded it! Go to Zaldor's World to hear a half hour of the wacky antics.
Matt and Zalodor gave me the beginner's crash course on Podcasting and I think I'll be doing my own very soon. More info coming.
I checked out the premier of Stella last night on Comedy Central. It wasn't quite as good as I expected. Being a fan of the State (when is the DVD coming out!) I was looking forward to Stella since it has 3 of their cast members. I have to also say that Michael Ian Black is the best commenter on all the VH1 80's, 90's etc shows he takes part on.
Despite the oddball insanity that ensued during the show, the unecessarily, gory ending was too over the top. Let's hope Stella gets better!

Just got back from California -- again. I hurt my back yesterday, so I've just spent two hot and sunny days (with Michigan it could be the only two we get!) inside laying down with an ice pack. I was lifting something heavy and I think I forgot to bend the knees.
Any way, hhre's a couple of cool new wave sites:
Old Wave Radio: New 80's Music!: #11: Valley of the Dolls Girl
Terrific Podcast spotlighting new bands that play music like I like it!
New Wave OutPost
Great site with good message board on New Wave artists. Up until recently the site owner posted hard to find 80's songs, which can be ordered on a 2CD MP3 comp, but you have to really search the site to find the link. If you find it, order the comp, 200 blasts from the pasts, including old local favorites, like Rhythm Corps!
