New countdown, new feature, new song!

So, in addition to this great new podcast, you can look forward to me telling you all about my Frightened Rabbit concert on Tuesday! Easy, now. Calm down. All in due time :)

Better late than never, right folks?

Well, last night I just didn't get around to recording. But tonight I did! I'm going to pay for it in the morning...Enjoy!

#3! Now with non-deafening action!

Here it is, folks. The third Appetite For Distraction Countdown. I think I've finally got the technical stuff down, so my vox and the songs won't kill your ears. Enjoy! Comment! Request dedications!

Countin' 'Em Down Again!

Here's this week's countdown (better late than never, right?) Enjoy!

Also, send in some dedications! Or send me some thoughts on the songs on the countdown. Do you like one? Do you hate one? Do you like all of 'em? Hate all of 'em?

Countdown #2

Back in!

Well that was a scary hour and a half. Lesson learned. Log out when I'm done with GMail.

PS Thanks KT. :)

Locked out.

So, I guess I need to be more careful about signing out of GMail at home. I just got my account locked for up to 24 hours. Sigh. This is really jarring to me. I spend a lot of my time sending and receiving email and GChatting.

I feel very cut off from the world right now.

Are you a "good" blog or a "bad" blog?

So, I clicked on my Google reader this morning and I had a whole bunch of posts about something called Paul Haig day. This is something I hadn't heard about before, but apparently it's in its second year and it started when JC (aka the Vinyl Villain) posted a song by a musician named Paul Haig and his post got shot down by Google/Blogger. I'm pretty sure that this has happened to every mp3 blogger and it's a VERY upsetting experience.

JC blogged about the experience and Paul saw the post and did something about it! He not only authorized the posting that JC had done, he posted a bunch of other mp3's for free download!

So, I'm reading all of these great blog posts from my community about the blogging world and how we're saving the industry and I am totally behind that! But I'm worried about my own blog. I don't want to be a drain on the industry or an example that someone could use against the blogging community. I have learned about so much great music through this community and I certainly don't want to be responsible for negative publicity against it.

I'm planning on posting another countdown podcast tonight. Should I not? Should I stick to only posting bands that aren't precisely going to be on next week's countdown, if you know what I mean?

I know I'm not the best blog on the internet, but I want to at least be a "good" blog and not a "bad" blog, you know?
