Fatty Arbuckle

I've been dividing my time reading "I, Fatty", working on my stand-up material and preparing for a huge audition this Friday. I won't say what it's for because I don't want to jinx it.

Shoot. I probably just jinxed it by even mentioning it in this blog. Damn. I'm a moron.

Oh, and I also culled a ton of news stories to possibly discuss on the first podcast, to be recorded this Saturday.

News of note
--Kerry's grades at Yale nearly the same as Bush's, surprise surprise.
--Human leg falls from a jetliner and lands in someone's yard in Florida.
--U.S. Number One in mental illness. Yay!
--Crazy guy with a chainsaw allowed to enter this country. Next day=bloodbath. Oops.
--Anal bleaching is all the rage right now

And other such fare. Any subjects you think are worth discussing? Lemme know.

I'm going back to my book/writing.

I am betting that you will do great with the audition.

My comments:

--Human leg falls from a jetliner and lands in someone's yard in Florida.

Damn, I was wondering where that landed!

--Crazy guy with a chainsaw allowed to enter this country. Next day=bloodbath. Oops.

What? You all don't all have one of those 'uncles living overseas that no one ever talks about'?

--Anal bleaching is all the rage right now

Oh crap. It's anal and not animal! I guess my pet salon business is finished...

Blame Yahoo! for the long URLs.

How about the outpouring of support for Mr. Jackson? You get the feeling that people can't believe that this guy just might have some issues.

Good luck on the audition..you've already got the part.

A story ideas:

"My cousin robbed a bank..or at least tried"

http://www.kake.com/news/headlines/1559881.html

I'm still wondering how he got into planning to rob a bank. I don't have enough self estem too commit that kind of crime. But I'm glad no one was hurt.


How soon can we hear this show..any chance of a live broadcast. It's not hard to setup...at least not hard on a Mac system.

Check out the Nicecast application for broadcasting.

And, StreamGuys for a streaming server.

Good Luck Lady:)

Matt Hartley said...

Hey Yogifish. Those are some great ideas! As far as a time frame. Let's just say 'soonish'. ;o)

Now, you mentioned something that I thought was interesting - Live Streaming.

Let me tell ya, we'd love to do this. But bandwidth is really, really expensive.
For instance, with StreamGuys (great service I hear, BTW) it would run $1,000 to have 500 peeps at a level of quality that did not sound like crap.

Now having said this, I agree that many people have no interest actually waiting for an MP3 to download. Not just because it isn't 'Live', but because dial-up users feel that it is like watching water boil.

Long story short. A Flash player will be offered that pops up in a tiny window; thus allowing you to do other things like surfing other pages, checking email, or closing your Web browser altogether. Best of all, it will stream flawlessly over any Internet connection.

We are also going to make sure that we offer a RSS feed with our MP3 for people using software like iPodder. This way they can have the show delivered right to their desktops. Also, I am 'looking into' Ogg Vorbis and AAC audio as well (no promises, though).

A quick question about Nicecast. Does it offer P2P support to help with the bandwidth congestion at all? I'm just wondering...

To the rest of you out there. Please send me your thoughts and concerns that you might have regarding the 'technology side' of the podcast. Whether it be defining what the heck a podcast is to spending too much time trying to fool with it. I am here to help. Just hit me with an email. matt.hartley@gmail.com
I promise to respond when I can. :o)

Yogifish said...

Well I'll send you an email Matt to explain things. I'm changing some things on my site at the moment, but I do have a live stream that I play music from.

On the Nicecast site they have some streams playing to check out.

Again .. Good luck .


And tell Oliver Stone to go easy on the herbs if he wants you in his movie Lady.

:)

Matt Hartley said...

Great, I look forward to your email.

Good luck on the audition. Thanks for the quick response to the Durbin question, it seemed really weird to me that any politician would make a joke like that. I also didn't find it offensive although I am not Jewish.

Can't wait for the podcast I know that its going to be great.
