    • Yes
    • [b][size=7]YES[/size][/b]
    • Larry's merely part of the establishment now (i.e. yes)
    • Yes, as this promotes affirmative action

Kong in Concert was a high-quality album, IMO, so it was my pleasure to host last night's listening party, of sorts. Along with the first 2 hours of assorted work from the community and Protricity's call-in, we had 3 1/2 hours featuring the complete Kong in Concert album along with several interviews featuring the artists of KiC & project director Digital Coma. THANK YOU to everyone who called, as well as everyone who stuck around for the full show, which was definitely the longest one ever. I apologize if the 5.5hr MP3 looks daunting or unlistenable at first glance, but the material on there, particularly Kong in Concert alongside the various artist interviews, is worth your look.

Head over to my webspace to pick up the 225MB/5.5hr MP3 (MP3 mirror) along with this week's decidedly fucked up AIM transcript. I know some people are like "OMG, stop with the prank calls, but I'm a big advocate of both equal time and not taking the show format way too seriously. For myself it's actually farily hectic as shit dealing with the prank calls live, but when I listen to the MP3 later I can appreciate the stupidity more.

In any case, I'm indeed hoping to have Mustin on the air at some point in the near future in order to let him have his say on Protricity, OCR, his conception of remixing, the commercial release of remixed material and any broader issues beyond that. As a big figure in the remix community, but one who mostly stays out of OCR and VGMix, he doesn't usually have a chance to engage in debates about remixing outside of OneUp Studios so it'll be good to get his angle without anyone twisting his views. Now enjoy the playlist!

Larry's uploading #30 to my webspace now, for anyone that didn't get it(myself included).

If anyone else still needs #29.99, reply now/soon. I'm taking it down tomorrow night.

Escape: The Movie needs one or a couple of people to do the soundtrack for it. It's not much, maybe half a dozen tracks at most. (Thread here.)

In the interest of getting the show out ASAP, I'm gonna release it without correcting any low volume levels on some of the interviews, so I wanna apologize in advance, but I don't have time to sit through 5.5 hours of convos and pranks.
Are there plans to master the volume levels? Binnie and Icy Guy are way too quiet :(

also, I've got every hi-quality VG Frequency mp3 archived. If anyone wants all of the episodes from #21 - current, they'll fit on 3 cds and I'd be happy to burn you copies- just send me a B&P. For those of you who don't know what a B&P is, (most-all of you) here are instructions:

PM me if interested.

You couldn't just say blank CDs and stamps?

I'd like a copy of the VHS tape from episode 27, if someone could arrange that.

Not sure why it does a double .mp3 when you download it. You might have file extensions hidden for filenames in Windows. That's the first I've ever heard of that problem.

The VHS tape of show #27 is at my house. :'-( Shit, I've got to get it sent here and make the copies! I'm sorry, my fellow Georgia collegiate bros! And we've gotta start planning to have you bros come down again to guest host!!!

We need someone with a relatively large vehicle(enough to carry 2-3 people + their stuff) that lives along the I-95 corridor somewhere north of baltimore interested in going down to crash VGF some weekend. You'd have to leave early enough on friday to get to baltimore around 2pm, then down to tennessee to pick up EdgeCrusher, then from there to VGF-Land. I'd pitch in about 40 bucks for gas & such, that should cover most of the gas for my segment of the trip(assuming a fairly high MPG vehicle...if it's a gas guzzler I'm still only putting in 40 bucks).

This would probably have to be done this semester sometime, since I'm taking a lot of evening classes for the spring semester and I wouldn't be pick-uppable until 9pm or later, meaning we'd arrive down there sometime around daylight, I think. Not exactly sure how far it is down there, but it's pretty far.
