They are independant & have done many things interesting from a relationship / fanbase building standpoint.

Every day of 2012 I have made sure to pick up my Canon 60D and take at least one picture. This night I came to 10pm and had shot nothing, I went outside and was inspired to try some long exposure photography.
It’s interesting how some of the shots look almost like it’s daylight, or a cloudy day.
The shots with streaks of light running across are focused on this road, where I would wait for a car & just let the camera do it’s thing.
I expect to do more experiments with my camera in the future.
For years now I have listened to This Week In Tech.
However, the content is inconsistent. More so since they are intentionally trying to get different groups of people on the show each week.
What happens on the show is primarily dependent on the group. The feel, pace, and topics are not dependent on what happens in Tech each week, but what hosts are on the show.
My life is also changing. I don’t have 20 minutes to devote to talking about political topics, or baseball, or other topics that are interesting to the hosts and potentially myself. I want to keep up with tech in general, but I am just not getting out of TWiT enough of what I want.
For years I have also watch The Soup.
It’s a great way to get some laughs, keep up with some elements in pop culture, and takes up less then 20 minutes a week.
I don’t mind spending a hour to hour and a half on Tech … it’s a big topic.
what I really want is an audio based podcast that at the end of it I generally know what is going on (past and near future) and a better understanding.
I want The Soup mashed up with TWiT.
Any ideas? Suggestions?
Generally, I am a sucker anytime a band I know of puts out the tracks for the public to remix.
A couple days ago I stumbled across a link to Newsboys.com/remix
Within an hour I had:
- downloaded all the tracks
- loaded up into an audio editor
- familiarized myself with the sound on each track
- came up with a vision – start with the lead vocal and add in a minimum audio, but still keep a good beat
- generated my first draft
At that point, I really had not listened to the original song, at least not in a few months since my last Zune Pass ran out.
Thursday morning, I upload the song to the contest (this was after a quick email with Greg Seneff, a copyright lawyer, about the rules).
I then listened to both my remix & one of the ones they provided & realized I could improve.
The interments were too low, adding in the female background vocals in one or two parts would add a lot, and some fading of tracks a couple places.
In the end, I came up with this: Way Beyond Myself – Less is More Nation 2
This is a part of a competition, and I would not mind winning, so if you would – go to the page and “vote”.
Also, if you want to hear the first version I did, it can be found on my soundcloud profile.
