nice vid, although I still find it kinda weird that all of a sudden videos (albeit bad quality ones) are so readily available.

read on for the comments:
" He makes Christopher Cross seem edgy."

the comments also link to the Rolling Stone review. The reviewer clearly must not have been of the single KEXP-listening 30-something female variety.

Baseball Player: I was partying, drinking, sleeping with gorgeous women every night, until one day Ned showed me there's more to life.

Homer: (scours) You professional athletes, always wanting more.


Sorry, I just felt like adding a random Simpsons quote I was reminded of.

(Sidenote: that's my photo in the Rolling Stone review.)

Here's more:

The guy who does Ryspace.com recorded the audio for the show, I think. He's posted a Sufjan track and promisesmore in the future.

granted, it's only half a line, but Billboard seemed to like John's performance

Someone did... But they didn't archive it. And the sick bastards only left everything up for a week. AND SOME OF US ONLY DISCOVERED IT AS IT WAS CLOSING. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRGH!

But...there is a banter archive? I'm not aware of this one that was only up for a short time that GMM is referring to...but Liesbeth's is still very much in existence. Right, Liesbeth?

if I am indeed a sick bastard, it is for a reason. Well, several reasons actually. One is that I don't have the bandwidth to have every bit of banter up at the same time. But even if I had, I'm not sure I would leave everything up. You know, anticipation adding to the enjoyment and all that. It just wouldn't do for the banter to become something to boringly browse through to find the fattest bits.

But since it might be a little while before I can update the banter stage in teh Library again, I could do a re-run of the old banter for a bit. LET ME KNOW IF THAT WILL STOP PEOPLE SCREAMING THEIR HEADS OFF.

I would offer to help host, but it sounds like you've got it covered. If you do, ever need hosting help, I have something ludacrus like 50gigs of bandwidth a month. Enough that I've felt confident hosting the FLACs of live shows, anyhow.

Winamp will play flac files. (http://www.winamp.com)
You can also use a program like FLAC frontend to convert flac files to .wav files if you want to burn to cd and play in the stereo, etc. Just download the frontend program/interface from that page, install, and drag/drop flac files into the window and click "decode." I'm sure there are ways to decode to other file types than wav's, but I'm not all that flac-saavy and this seems like a good way to get stuff onto cd's. (I have no idea what this does to compression/quality, but it's good enough for me...)

That's *exactly* what you do! Well done!

Hot tip: if you find recent versions of Winamp unnecessarily bloated, check out OldVersion.com for an older version of Winamp. I've been using v.2.81 for years, because I've never had a damn problem with it, yet!

Hot rumour: As I understand it, newer versions of Nero convert FLAC files to WAV for you as you burn them, or something. I still trust FLAC Frontend a little more, but if you want to skip the step, that might be something to look into.

In a slightly offtopic reply, watching the video for honest led me to watching the video for new girl which lead me to watching thriller (yes, that thriller) which lead me to watch the simpsons vs star trek which ended with me watching the panic at the disco singer get hit in the head with a bottle.

The point? None, really. Work is slow and I like youtube.

To tie back into things that matter, a ton of LW videos have been showing up on there lately.
Yay youtube.
