Liveblogging! Commentary for “ITDE” 8/25/07

Well, my blogging host is down for a while tonight, so I’m dryblogging on Wordpad. There’s nothing quite as pathetic as trying to blog in Wordpad, let me tell you!


As usual, nobody was here when I arrived, so I annexed an extra 30 minutes in the name of “It’s Too Damn Early,” and kicked everything off with a long cut from Glenn Weyant’s Anta Project. Weyant, who you may recall from his work with Phil Hargreaves on the Whi-Music release “Friday Morning Everywhere,” uses the United States-Mexico border as instrument and inspiration for recording. Apparently, he’s been doing this for quite a long time!Ordinarily, I pride myself on picking up rather quickly on interesting experimental goings-on in the world of music, but I must admit that it hurts a little to have missed Weyant’s cello bow and chopstick activities for all these years. Then again, I suppose a certain sense of self-preservation may have precluded Weyant from announcing this sort of thing to a world where sippy cups, pudding, and nail clippers are so threatening.

I’m finding it difficult to keep up liveblogging without actually uploading anything… I’ve been hanging out in various chat areas of Soulseek, introducing some listeners to new music– a very organic process, I might add. I am really happy with the progression this broadcast is taking, everything seems to blend well and make good sense. It’s also nice to be able to recommend things that are in a similar vein to what listeners are hearing. Looks like I turned someone on to Rune Lindblad– and that’s got to be a good thing.

Truthfully, I’m looking forward to a little respite from all the trivial work that goes into one of my liveblog entries. It is kind of a bear to track down all the web addresses, etc– and even though I’ll end up doing it for everything in the playlist anyway, I still feel a bit unburdened.

I’m ripping the broadcast at home this evening instead of in the studio, as an experiment. We’ll see how it goes. It occurs to me that if I get home, and it has failed, I’ll be a bit upset. This is why you should ALWAYS listen live, hahaha. Hmm. I need to get on the mic a bit tonight. I’ll do so after this track, “Roman Kosh.”Okay, well, I didn’t get the reprieve from liveblogging– just a delay in sentencing, as it were. Looks like I have to make up for lost time now and start getting those links done. Otherwise, it will cut into my couple hours of sleep I try to steal before having to properly wake up for the day. This would be a good day for someone to drop a 24-pack of Coca-Cola on my doorstep.

Update: The recording at home failed. How prophetic of me! Actually, I managed to get 11 minutes and 36 seconds worth, but that’s far short of three-and-a-half hours isn’t it? Besides, nobody dropped any Coca-Cola off for me. No Coke, no show, hahaha. And I better not find any brown M&M’s, either!
