Garage Band and Podcast #41

I have received several emails from listeners who don’t have Ipods but use different mp3 players about Podcast #41, namely, they can’t listen to it. Garageband only generates ACC files, apparently and Audacity won’t import them. I’ll try and get a straight mp3 version up later today. Let me know if you prefer just a […]

Finally, a new podcast. You would think in between trying to find a new call, selling a house, and doing the HGTV home improvement thing, I could squeeze in more podcasting time! In light of my son’s 18th birthday, here’s some reflections on reality show, YouTube, and the spiritual journey that might make me sound […]

Samson by Regina Spektor

Between Itune store recommendations and Slacker.com’s similar artist lists, I have enjoyed discovering new artists. Regina Spektor is a new fav and “Samson” is one of those haunting songs of heartache that ends up in the closing moments of “CSI” or “New Amsterdam” (another new fav). The cool thing about “Samson” is that it really […]

Gary Gygax Fails Saving Throw

Ok, I’m not the first to say it but my son just came up from the basement to let me know that the co-creator of Dungeons and Dragons died this week. Come to find out he still lived about 40 miles north of me in Lake Geneva, WI, the place where the magic all began. […]
