So the Nickel Stops

2005 comes to an end. In Chinese custom if you make it to new years it means you escaped being consumed by a big evil dragon, whew-looks like we made it. Thanks so much to all readers/listeners, my D-Voice posse, and especially to those of you that provide comments and feedback. Today's show is a hodgepodge of cool music particularly my bad boy homies from Brooklyn-Organic!; who rock my world continually with their funky music. John and Bennett you guys are the best. Keep your eyes and mouths open on what happens in southern US post hurricane reconstruction. The best of all to all of you in the new year-let's all play together and grow together!

MindField:The Long Tail Wagging the Dog

Photo By James B
So much talk about the Longtail these days in the blog/podosphere. Concept originally espoused by Wired editor: Chris Anderson late last year. I offer some different spins on the Long Tail concept/philosophy as well as some possible applications in my own life. Play some new songs along with a few favorites previously played over this past year. Give a shout to Frank Key from Resonance FM-The Hooting Yard, thanks to Steve Eley for referring. The clock tick, tick, ticks. Closer to the New Year-new opportunities.

Big Heart to Match?

painting by Todd Mohr
Todd Mohr of BHTM fame is a fairly progressive-minded guy. In addition to being eclectic musically(their music incorporates, rock, folk, jazz and blues elements) Todd is also a philosopher , podcaster, and a visual artist as well. Kudos to him and the band in their endeavors to adopt the Creative Commons licensing model/etchic for their music. The best of luck to them.

Been real busy with a lot of things. Hope you are well. I've beendoing some PR preparation ... for the band's winter tour andconsequently our new business model. It's been a bit of a hairy ride but exciting. ... we would be possibly the first band of our size to adopt a free culture model. ... In the mean time, I've been trying to educate my bandmates and others on why this is an important move for Big Head Todd and the Monsters, as a definitive change in how we relate to our audience. Your audio bits were very helpful. Thanks also for expanding my contacts, I haven't reached out to anybody yet, but intend to soon.

Happy holidays

50 Foot Wave Goes CC

Speaking of kick-ass women in rock, oh... was I not speaking of such women? I am now-namely Kristin Hersh of Throwing Muses and now 50 Foot Wave. Kudos to Kristin and the Wavers for going Creative Commons on new EP and putting it up for free download, purchase or donation, ala other CCers like Jonathan Coulton, Brad Sucks, Simon Steadman, etc.

Did I mention that it kicks ass as well? Ah, aging and pre-holiday business. Check out cute holiday themed video by Brendan with The Waitresses-Christmas Wrapping music track.

Be sure to check out his podcast and blogging so you can better understand the basis of my inspiration. He recently celebrated 1 year of blogging-stop by and say hey.
