Aight, so I wanna get back to regular podcasting, after a few years off it. The only reason i stopped was the constant technical shit just got in the way of it and it became too much of a headache. I’m hoping a few years down the line etch has gotten better and more integrated and I can do it without having to spend half a day screaming at the computer. Anyway, I tried Ustream out the other day, and to be honest that was still a massive pain in the ass and I couldn’t get my mike, soundcard, Traktor, and the interface to play nice even after following a bunch of Soundflower tutorials, also you have to pay like $100 a month not to have adverts on that shit.

I’m not sure if I wanna do a single weekly Doncast, where we chat and hang out and play music and shit like the old days, OR if I wanna break it into two, one where I just play music, and one that’s just chat. The latter is attractive as I’m about to doing a lot more DJ work for which I need practice, and I usually have way over an hour of new music a week to play anyway. Ultimately when I’ve got my full live DJ/sample set up working it’d be like a weekly live old school ATD mixtape, which would be fucking cool.

Meanwhile, I’ve been enjoying a lot of chat only podcasts lately during my beach runs and morning mountain walks, and fancy doing something I could enjoy myself in such a fashion. One doesn’t always want music, sometimes one wants soothing golden vocal tones. And there is much to talk about, and I am about to start having some very major Adventures again, and will no doubt be meeting interesting people along the way, and a regular talky podcast would be a great opportunity to share some of that. I realise I don’t have time to write more than one lengthy text blog a week, and those are a limited form in many regards anyway.

SO. This week I’m trying out this thing called Mixlr, which is an audio only streaming thingy that thusfar seems pretty dope and has been reliable. It has a chat room, and you can add a schedule and stuff. There’s no video though, which is no doubt partly why its reliable, but maybe that loses something. Anyway, I’m gonna carry on testing it this week, leaving the schedule of the next appearance on the page so keep an eye on it. Next one’s 1pm tomorrow (Sept 3rd), which is 5am LA time. Let me know your thoughts on all this, what you’re after, any ideas you have for online places to do it, all that. One of my favourite things about the old Doncasts was hanging out with you guys on a weekly basis, so I don’t wanna lose that aspect.

OK, I gotta go do crunches now, big ass day tomorrow. LOVE YOU GUYS PEACE!

Akira The Don is on Mixlr

Don has officially raised Henry’s TRAP to classic status. Also acknowledges he should really find time to do that trap remix he always wanted to too.

Classic bit in which Doug Stanhope dares to wonder if perhaps its not always tragic when people die before they’re 100.

I saw Ranking Roger on Saturday at Croissant Neuf after we played. Dude was BRILLIOR. Played loads of awesome tunes off of an Ipad and performed a bunch of his own tings, including an Andrew WK-solo-show-esque version of this.

TechCrunch reports:

If you’ve been to San Francisco in the past few months, you’ll know that the entire city is plastered with iPad advertisements. The situation is even more out of control now that it’s WWDC week and thousands of Apple developers are in from out of town. So one rogue group of artists decided to have a little fun.

The group Freedom From Porn has been going all around the city and altering the iPad ads to add a little porn to them. To be clear, these aren’t really explicit additions, instead, they’re more subversive. For example, see the Steve Jobs’ Facebook page below.

The group, which has this blog, is apparently doing this because they think Jobs’ take that the App Store should befree of porn is crap.

Anyone out there on the streets still seeing these or has Apple managed to take them all down?

Be sure to check out the video below.

Props to TheAlScott.
