The ADD Minute And A…: Wondercon

Just because their logo is here doesn’t mean this is an officially sanctioned review. Or a review period. Or any kind of a conversation that might make any sense.

The ADD Minute And A…: Wondercon

DJ Austin Rich tries to help DJ Really Sloppy make some sense out of what he saw on his recent visit to a comic book convention.  Shouldn’t they actually call these “media conventions” now?

Here’s a link to the “State of the Sundry” video DJ Really Sloppy mentions.

And, if you’re curious about anything else that was mentioned…well, just Google it already – do we have to do all the work for you?  But, seriously, they go over a lot of crap, so just Google it.*

Duckies! 003

Egg-celent! Egg-stravagant! Egg-…tastic?
Oh, forget it, let’s just go shopping.

February 10th 2012?
(Featuring a “lost” episode, mistakenly uploaded to post in 2013 by DJ Really Sloppy, instead of 2012, like it should have.)

Wow.  Time flies when you’re having fun. Nearly a year ago, DJ Really Sloppy and I did a fantastic pair of Soul Shows back to back, and in doing so, created some fantastic radio.  In that time, a lot has changed: I left the studio I’d been with for years to venture off on my own, and DJ Really Sloppy became unstuck in time, appearing randomly on the show in a variety of capacities.  But this time, something rather unusual happened: a show he recorded a full year ago was (finally) uploaded to the server a full year later.

DJ Really Sloppy says that he called me a year ago, immediately after he recorded this show.  But I only received that call when I went on the air to do a show today.  Regardless, you get to reap the radio benefits, in the form of a fantastic show by Mr. Sloppy himself.  I’ll leave you with some words from the DJ’s mouth:

This is strange.  I had called DJ Austin Rich after I finished this show last year to see about getting it posted on the Blasphuphmus blog, which I only vaguely remember.  At the time I thought he was acting kind of weird.  But when I checked in with him today, he said I’d actually just a short while ago interrupted the show he was going to do that day.  Whatever, here’s some songs from a year ago.

And, wow, what a horrible choice for a random quote right after Gilly Hanner’s song about getting the crap kicked out of her by the cops at the Satyricon riot.  I wasn’t even paying attention.  Obviously.

p.s.  Since DJ Austin didn’t really have much in the way of songs on the “egg theme”, leave your suggestions in the comment area and maybe he can give it a try again later.  Say, for Easter?

DJ Really Sloppy here.  Just thought I’d throw some songs from the soundtrack albums from the original “broadcast” version of the show Buffy the Vampire Slayer up here to go along with DJ Austin Rich’s recent review of the comic books for season 9.  These are a few of my favorites, along with a couple other not quite random musical items.  Hope you like what you hear…and if you do, there’s plenty more where that came from!

Also, can I get a Blasphuphmus tech over here?  My miniaturization ray doesn’t seem to be working.

Episode 175: Summer, Jam

THIS is a summer jam.

Episode 175: Summer, Jam (3365) 
(Featuring a selections of seasonally appropriate songs, selected by our long-lost, unstuck-in-time co-host, DJ Really Sloppy.)

While the idea of doing a summer show seemed like a good idea at the time, it turned out that this week, I had nothing.  Not a single idea for songs about summer, outside of just listening to surf music.  Fortunately, my good friend DJ Really Sloppy accidentally called me, and babbled for about an hour about what he thinks of when he hears the term “Summer Jam.”  The results are this program.

Episode 166: Moth Hunter, LIVE!
(Featuring a live performance by local circuit-bend  experimental pscychedlic, Moth Hunter!)

Join us for a very special live performance by local circuit-bent, experimental noise artist Moth Hunter!  This performance was recorded in his home studio on 08 May 2012, at roughly 8 PM that evening, and was quite possibly one of the best performances I’ve heard using these kinds of home-brewed items.  I was also able to shoot some great footage as well, giving you a truly multi-media experience just short of being there with us.  Couple that with an appearance by DJ Really Sloppy, and a few other odds and ends, and you’ve got this week’s program.

Moth Hunter

Moth Hunter

Moth Hunter is one half of Knuckle Children, a fantastic noise duo that has been creating sound experiments since at least 2007.  Both have appeared on this show before, and Moth Hunter DJed a Halloween show, too (those shows are available here).  We’ve been trying to set up this show for a while now, and after a couple of false starts in the last couple of weeks, we’ve managed to sort out the technical and scheduling details that had enabled us to bring you live music.

I have to say, I’m really excited to have live music back on the show. While Historic St. John’s has offered a number of great opportunities for the direction this show has been heading, I’ve been very sad that it is difficult to include live music in our studio.  However, with the addition of new equipment and the changing landscape of digital recording, this is no longer a challenge.  This really opens up new possibilities for our program, and we’re already lining up other possible ways to exploit this technology.

At this point, I’ll let the music speak for itself.  Thanks for listening.

See you in seven.

Episode 164: Flight F – I – N – A – L (20 January 1999 Retrocast)
(Featuring a retrocast of a program from 20 January 1999, as part of our 14th Anniversary Explosion!)

Join us for a special 14th Anniversary Retrocast of a program from 1999, where we present the fascinating audio-drama that dares to create, “…a dramatic comparison to death.”  Presented in this episode: three quarters of the original broadcast (recreated from cassette recordings and partial playlists that have survived into the modern era), PLUS!: A brand new A Minute With The Pope, a feature that comes and goes with the whims of The Pope Himself, and a confused phone call from DJ Really Sloppy, who has recently become unstuck in time and seems to be having trouble figuring out exactly what that means for a person as confused as him.  Plus a couple of Phantom Surfers tracks for good measure.

As you can tell from this show – which approximates what it was like to hear us when we first started – our murky origins have many of the elements that came to dominate our format now.  I knew I wanted to play music I liked, and as a huge Over The Edge fan, I knew I wanted to do some form of re-mix on the air.  But as a novice, just getting started, my first forays into this realm were not as skilled as they have become.  That’s not to say that they were bad, but that they were of an amateur level.  The ideas were in place, but the execution was not what it would become.

I remember finding a copy of this record – one that I had heard sampled and began to wonder exactly what it could be – and knew instantly that sooner or later it would appear on the show.  In what form, I wasn’t quite sure.  But one night I showed up to do the program solo, noticed that I had packed it along with a bunch of other stuff, and it was then that I went to work.  The results – or, at least, most of them – are audible in the show you’re hearing today.

Note: If anyone can identify the Satan’s Pilgrim’s song included in this playlist, please let me know.  Thanks!

See you in seven.

Episode 162: 14th Anniversary Explosion!

Happy 14th!

Happy 14th!

Episode 162: 14th Anniversary Explosion!

As the 14th Anniversary of our first broadcast was on Sunday, today’s show is a retrocast of selections and samples from our earliest recorded programs from or KWVA years.  In the late ’90’s, College Radio (the kind of radio I prefer) was a very different place.  We had different technology, and a different approach to what qualified as entertainment.  Fortunately, the glory of cassette tapes has maintained a way for us to capture these broadcasts and re-present them to you here, and now.

However, there is a slightly sinister element to this episode, too.  In somewhat of a sequel to “It Looks Like Thousands Of Stars” (and episode from 18 July 2007), I accidentally encounter a space / time anomaly, where I encounter none other that DJ Really Sloppy, who has also become unstuck in time.  As I continue to experience the sounds of past radio programs, I hope that by listening to them may offer me a chance to return home afterward.  Will I?  Tune in and find out!

This episode was a lot of fun.  While the official archive of our programs does not include every show we aired (or, even, complete shows), we do have a number of recordings of the shows from our KWVA incarnation.  Digging through that archive – now digital, thank Earl – allowed me to pick some of the more well known moments captured on tape.  As you can tell, I was heavily influenced by Negativland’s “Over The Edge” program, and you’ll find that these mixes and whatnot are but the tip of the ice berg when it comes to what the show really was like.

Having done a lot of preliminary editing, there will be more “best of” programs as I sort and organize the material.  But this is a show I’ve been wanting to do since 2004, and only now do I have the technology to really bring it to you the way I was hoping I could.

Along with this show, we’ve also released a new podcast feed, entitled “14th Anniversary,” that we suggest as a compliment to this program.    It contains a number of programs that illustrate more of the kind of program this show was like in the early years, as well as some other anniversary broadcasts, including: an interview with Exene Cervenka, two programs featuring Holden Craft’s appearances on this show, and the surviving audio from our very first program on 15 April 1998.  It’s all part of the anniversary fun.

I hope you enjoy these strange and twisted audio creations I made during my radio show really late at night in Eugene during the late ’90’s after I would get fully loaded at the bar and broadcast on FM Radio.  They were as much fun to make as they are to describe.

See you in seven!

Traveling Through Time Part III

Episode 160: Traveling Through Time Part III

Time Travel has always been my favorite Sci-Fi subject, and I’ve toyed with the subject myself on this very program a few times before.  But it is not always a subject that easily translates to music.  For some reason, there are just not that many songs about the Grandfather Paradox.  Nonetheless, myself and DJ Really Sloppy made a bonafide effort to piece together a short musical tribute to some of the artists that have tackled the subject.  Abstractly at times, yes.  But you know how it goes.

This episode also marks the introduction of our new studio!  Soylent Green Is People Studios has undergone some improvements in the last week, and we’re happy to report that the show now sounds… well, like a radio program.  I appreciate the patience that listeners have shows in the last several weeks as we’ve recorded in some less-than-stellar enviorns, and your reward will come in the form of bigger, better, and more impressive sounding shows.  I’ve got a slew of new ideas that will be coming your way in the coming weeks, and now we have a good place to create it all from.  If you’ve dug what I’ve done in the past, then you know that what’s to come will be right up your ally.

I want to give a special shout out to kiisu d’salyss, who performed much of the backing music that is throughout this episode.  kiisu and I have been friends for years, and he’s appeared on this show in a few of the different bands that he’s been in, and as a solo artist.  For the music in this particular episode, the music was performed on a Kitara, a computer / keytar / guitar hybrid, manufactured by Misa Digital.  I’m hoping to incorporate more of his performances with this instrument in future episodes, and I really want to thank him for his willingness to join the madness that is our show.  If you hear something that sounds spacey in this show, it’s him.

This one is short and sweet, just the way these shows used to be.  I’m still trying to pin down exactly how long this show is going to be, now that I have the freedom to go as long as I want.  For the time being, I’m going to say that I’ll go anywhere between an hour or two, depending on my mood and the theme.  But I do have some ideas for some longer programs in the future, so we shall see.

See you in seven.

Gun For Dinosaur

Episode 159: A Gun For Dinosaur

In the ’50’s, amid the din and clatter that was dramatic theater on the radio, the show that blew almost all the others away was undoubtedly X Minus One.  They had an amazing crew of writers who went on to do a number of outstanding things, among them Isaac Asimov, Ray Bradbury, Philip K. Dick, Robert Heinlein and Frederik Pohl, just to name a few.  It was the kind of show that could not be missed, and is a big influence on my entire aesthetic.

As part of our Traveling Through Time series, we present A Gun For Dinosaur, writeen by L. Sprague de Camp, originally broadcast on NBC on 7 March 1956.  I’m proud of this audio essay, which also includes The ADD Minute And A … with DJ Really Sloppy weighing in on the subject of the Geek & Sundry launch at Wonder Con.  And, of course, we have A Minute With The Pope, recorded entirely on his iPhone.  I like to think we attempt to deliver a new interpretation of those fantastic radio stories.  With music.

As DJ Really Sloppy seems to have become Unstuck In Time, next week will mostly likely continue our Traveling Through Time series.  Will he survive his experience unscathed?  Tune in next week, to find out.

Episode 156: Starting Over (Again)
(Our very first episode on FunemploymentRadio.com, with special guests, my new bosses Greg Nibler & Sarah X. Dylan!)

Welcome to a new era for Blasphuphmus Radio.  I wrapped up my first show in the Funemployment Radio studios, and man it was a blast!  I can already tell that I am really going to enjoy the new possibilities that this show is going to offer.  Already, I’m impressed with what I put together for today.

There are a number of new segments.  Now that I have installed myself in the Lava Lamp Lounge (beneath the Funemployment Radio studios here in Portland, Oregon), I have been able to put together a number of new and fun segments for the show.  We have A Minute With The Pope, featuring audio oddities that are sent to me by The Pope of The Church Of Blasphuphmus.   We have The Sounds Of Portland Oregon, featuring field recordings of the sounds that surround us.  We have the first installment of my Community Service series of audio journals I kept when I served my time in February.  We also have a conversation between myself and DJ JustanotherDJ about the as-yet-untitled segment that he will be hosting from week to week.  Oh, and we even have a bunch of music.  It’s a taste of what this show is going to become as we make ourselves comfortable in the Lava Lamp Lounge.

Special thanks goes out to Paco Jones for writing the new theme music for the show, my wonderful (and understanding) girlfriend, and Greg and Sarah for helping me get this thing off the ground.  I had a lot of fun, and I know it’s only going to get better.

See you in seven!

The Final KPSU Show

Episode 155: The Last KPSU Broadcast Show
(Wherein we celebrate the last Blasphuphmus Radio show on KPSU, and celebrate our move to Funemploymentradio.com!)

(Note: This recording contains background hiss during the voice-overs.  This was an unavoidable tech issue with the live stream at KPSU.  I’ve re-built the episode, and have cleaned up as much of the hiss as possible.  It’s like listening to an old tape version of us talking now.)

In the Spring of 2004 I wandered into the KPSU studios to see if I could revive my radio program, which had been off the air for a little while and was looking for a new home.  By the 25th of June, I was back on the air, and was given a paid job that lasted me quite some time.  It was the beginning of something new and exciting, a challenge that I could face with new ideas and experience, and a new way to interpret a radio program that I felt very strongly about.

In that time I’ve had a number of incredible experiences, have met amazing and incredible people, and have gotten to have my say and play my music to a number of fantastic listeners and fans from all over the place.  It has been one of my favorite things to do, ever.  Now, as I am faced with a new chance to start over, to reinvent the show, and to face new challenges to make the show something completely different again, I wanted to mark this occasion not with sadness, but with a party.  And that’s what happened during this show.

A number of people joined in the fun to make this one happen, including Miss Meghan from the long-lost Songs The Lord Taught Us, DJ Swill who provided the swill, DJ JustanotherDJ via our sister-station down south, Jaycation, Jonathon Boober and Miss Rikki (all three current and amazing DJs at KPSU)… even Ricardo Wang dedicated an entire hour to us at 12 Noon.  It was a really heartfelt, and amazing show, and not only did I play some great songs and have a great time, but it was the perfect send-off.  I can’t imagine anything better.

Of course, this is not the end.  Not by a longshot.  As we take a week off to re-tool, re-align, and re-vamp our program for its new version at FunemploymentRadio.com, we will return on 06 March 2012 with something new, something old, something borrowed, and something that rocks.  I’m really excited about the new direction the show is heading in, and I think that alone will overcome the sadness of leaving something that I’ve grown to know and love over the years.

To everyone who listening and came to the studio yesterday: thank you.  Here’s to something new!

Episode 151: R&B Explosion! (Soul Explosion! Part II) (444)

SHOW NOTES for 02/04/2012 – DJ JustAnotherDJ

Inspired by last year’s Soul Explosion episode (as you know, it takes me a while to get around to things), I put together an R&B Explosion. This partially arose from the fact that, well, soul music arose from R&B, which itself sounds nothing like it did originally when you hear the music currently defined as “R&B.” Where’s the rhythm? Where’s the blues? So, I thought it was time to look back at what this music was…maybe not right at the beginning, but closer to the beginning, and maybe try to get an idea of how it developed into what was then called “soul” – not to far off from its originator.

And, I may not have to many actual answers for you, but I believe quite a few other people do, if you’ll look around a little bit.

Today’s playlist:

I know I usually give you a web address for stuff, but seriously – just go look it up on Wikipedia. That’s where I’d end up sending you anyway.

Episode 146: A Seasonal Show (22259)
(Featuring another simulcast from DJ JustanotherDJ and our Southern California affiliate for Blasphuphmus Radio.)

With the holidays in full swing, I knew that holiday shopping and whatnot would prevent me from being able to assemble a two hour show this week.  Fortunately, DJ JustanotherDJ (at our Southern California affiliate) is regularly able to get my back in situations like this, and it was easy enough to program the quantum number generator to switch the feed to him for the first hour of the show.  With that in mind, we present one of the more unusual interpretations of holiday broadcasting, as DJ JustanotherDJ dives into A Seasonal Show.

A Seasonal Show (22259)

SHOW NOTES 12/17/2011

Hey, folks.  DJ JustAnotherDJ here.

THE NIGHTS ARE GETTING LONGER!  No, I’m not trying to depress anyone – beyond any S.A.D. they may already be going through on their own.  That’s just my first correction.  During the show, I said the days were getting longer this time of year, when, of course, we all know it’s the nights.  I guess since I’m a night person, I just kind of turned things around there.  I did a lot of that this week.

My other correction is that “Splinter” is actually about the Snow Queen, not the Ice Queen.  Guess that fairy tale isn’t all that famous after all, if I can’t even remember what she’s the queen of – no, that would just be my problem.  It’s famous enough.  The version of the song heard here is a “bonus” track, which isn’t as easy to throw onto a CD as it is on vinyl – it’s actually contained in the track for the final song of the album, “White Linen”, after about 15 minutes of silence.  Stupid CDs.  Though, for my money, better than “the Cloud.”  Hey, lets all line up to buy things we can’t actually possess!  Yeah, that’ll end well.

For the “bells” section of the show, all those songs are from 2010.  In fact, a couple of the bands had their debut that year, and they all were formed generally around that time.  Interesting how there were decades of music with no bands that had the word “bells” in their names, then, all of a sudden there’s, like, four.  Life is an odd place.

So, yeah, maybe I can’t get seasonal music right, but I hope I played some songs that you liked.  And, I also hope you all have a happy whatever-you-do for this time of year!

Abstract Cat Sez: Trouble in YOUR Soul

Episode 141: Trouble In My Soul (238)
(Featuring another episode from our sister station down in Southern California, hosted by DJ JustanotherDJ.)

Due to circumstances beyond my control, I will be  late for my show this week.  Fortunately, I can count on DJ JustanotherDJ to cover for me at a moments notice.  He’ll be doing his regular show from our affiliate in Southern California, so Ricardo Wang is going to switch the feed over to their signal for the first hour, while I try to get to KPSU ASAP.

A couple of program notes from DJ JustAnotherDJ:

I’ve been told this is where DJ Austin puts his commentaries about his episodes; I don’t really have a commentary, as I was really just playing my usual assortment of songs, which I do try to get to fit together some way or another – however, it did seem like playing “Trouble In My Soul” set a bit of conceptual/lyrical theme, when compared to the other songs.  Some things just put themselves together like that, and so it was.  And who wouldn’t feel a little trouble in their soul in this day and age?

OK, or ever in human history.

But, I digress.  Program notes:

I’m not really sure if the Mexican Dubwiser (know internationally, according the the ever-reliable internet, as Dubwise Selecta) album will be released, though I have seen a remix EP for this very song.

The band Fatty Gets a Stylist is a side project of Australian artist Kate Miller-Heidke.  At least, in Australia it is.  Apparently, (I’m guessing), someone decided having a band or an album named Fatty Gets a Stylist may not go over so well with the rest of the world.  So, renamed.  The copy I own still bears that title – and I ain’t changin’ it.

(Featuring a February retrocast from our So-Cal Affiliate, hosted by DJ JustanotherDJ.)

DJ JustanotherDJ manages the Blasphuphmus Radio affiliate in Orange County, and has made a couple of appearances on this show when he was visiting the PDX area. However, this week, we bring you a retro-cast of his show from February, to give you a taste of what our show sounds like south of the border.

We have affiliates worldwide, in every city, so it is difficult to keep you abreast of everything that is happening everywhere. But DJ JustanotherDJ does an excellent job of spreading the word of Earl in his neighborhood, and this seemed like a good show to introduce you to his style. Hopefully, you like it as much as we do.

Episode 047: Audience Participation b/w Electric Folk (w/ DJ Sackbut)
(First hour: random guest walks in & picks songs. Second hour: DJ Sackbut schools us in Electric Folk.)

Covering for What’s This Called? this week, our show expanded to a two hour block that is, for all intents and purposes, two different shows for the price of one. How, exactly, can we do that? By having an hour of rock music (picked out by myself and a bewildered member of our listening audience that wandered into the station), and then by having an hour of Electric Folk, selected by my good friend, DJ Sackbut. I hadn’t seen him in quite a while, so there were plenty of behind-the-scenes shenanigans. However, that in no way interfered with the awesome radio we were able to bring you.
