If you don't know about the Kid from Brooklyn (no, not me-another, older kid) you should. Mike Carracciolo says it like he thinks it in a way and with language that should be the envy of Evil Genius Chronicles' Dave Slusher. Mike's got a bunch of videos on the site with him spouting off on a variety of topics. Here is link for a video rant on Starbucks' prices. Hey, have a good laugh, know what I'm sayin?

Sharing the love…

Nothing I like better than getting some love back from an artist-in this case up and coming  sci-fi /thriller novelist: J.C. Hutchins of  "7th Son" fame. It's the little things like these that make being an amateur(dictionary definition: "to do something out of love) citizen radioist all worth it. Your welcome & thanks, Chris

Dear Mark,

I wanted to give you a quick shout-out of appreciation and  
admiration. As a longtime fan of Mike and Evo's podcasts, your voice  
has been piping into my eardrums for months now. The content you  
provide to their shows is wonderful. "Joe, did you say something?  
Joe! Say something!" Brilliant. Just brilliant.

Thanks so much for promoting Podiobooks so heavily on your podcasts,  
and for playing my promo for "7th Son" on a recent episode. It's a  
real treat to hear someone who really "gets" the potential for  
podcast fiction, and evangelizes on its behalf. And I also appreciate  
that you've posted a link 7S's Podiobooks page (and my website)! Too  
cool for school.

And since I'm heaping all this praise and thanks upon you, I also  
want to tell you how grateful I am that you mentioned 7th Son to  
Joseph at the small WORLD podcast. The way he tells the tale, you  
were instrumental in turning him on to the novel. Without that, I  
probably wouldn't have been interviewed on his program. Greatly  
appreciated, sir.

Mark, keep up the excellent work -- both in your 'casts, and all  
others that you contribute to. Thanks again for all your support!  
Take care, and drop a line anytime.

--Chris ("J.C.") Hutchins

The Sound of Music Business

Photo by Jek in the Box

Funny how the music business can sound just like "monkey business." Seems the music making monkeys are taking control of their music and the money making monkeys don't like the bananas they are left with. We play the following songs over a bed of verbal prose imagery and some song lyrics. Famous comment on Music Biz: The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side. Hunter S. Thompson
