Apparently I can’t frame a shot with my phone to save my life, but at least I’ve got something. Had a douchebag crawl up Gia’s ass just off whyte ave last night. Brad had opted to not park behind me as he would have been past the sign; too close to the intersection and thusly, illegal. Didn’t stop this cunt-rag from parking 10 inches off my bumper. Only upside was I got to use one of the tickets I printed off of youparklikeanasshole. What did we learn from this? 1) Bring the good camera more often 2) It’s a good thing dave doesn’t own a big, metal vehicle 3) It’s time to make up some custom tickets to leave on windsheilds 4) People is bitches, and bitches must die.

I’ve now got the last piece of equipment on the current list for the streaming setup. Today I went out into the big blue room with a stack of CDs as reference material. I picked up a set of Sennheiser HD-555s from a rather nice audio shop in Edmonton called Gramaphone. I managed to convince the little brother to finally get a set of cans as well, and he decided to get the same set I did.
I still need to decide what I’m going to do with the mixing console. I’ve been pondering building a sound-treated enclosure to put my mic in, and if I do that I’ll probably put it above an small incline for the board. Said enclosure would also give me the opportunity to build in a switch to turn the mixer on and off, as behringer neglected to provide with such. And because it’s dave, I would most likely put in some sort of light to illuminate the mixer. Also tied to the switch, of course.
After cleaning up a little tomorrow, I’m going to post pics of the new kit. It’s only right to include geek-pr0n with a post-toygasm entry.
Last night made me happy because I found Jamendo. Tonight made me happy for a different, though related, reason.
Tonight, as I type this, the last three tracks on the playlist for my show tonight are rounding out. I’ve completed the first episode of “Take the Next Step” on Hypatia Media. For the last month and a half I’ve been doing private test streams but tonights show is the first official show. The first above board, completely CC licensed show. I’m absolutely ecstatic. It was brilliant, despite how sad it was. I was so excited to finally be picking CC music for the show that I forgot to get material together to talk about.
There’s definitely a list of things to be taken care of. I still need new headphones, I want to find some better software to stream with, I might need a new sound card and I want to have the live tags working for song info. But ultimately we’re alive. We have no idea where our fearless leader is but I don’t care. I’m just going to keep streaming, keep pushing, and hopefully keep hooking people in. I’ve got some homework for the week. I’m hoping everyone out there will heed my call and provide some bumpers over the next few weeks.

So tomorrow, after work I’m buying toys.
Going to grab a small mixer, a condenser mic, perhaps a pop filter, stand and cables.
Time to inflict myself on all you.
