“I can play the hell out of a kazzoo by the way.”

Via Lil Twist’s Ustream, Lil wayne leaves the faithful with the following words of wisdom, before heading off to watch DVDs solitary for 8 months:

“I’m out this bitch. To all my fans, my real fans, I really, really, really truly love you. I love you with all of me, for real. I’ll probably be loving everything else because I love you so much. Thank you from the bottom [of my heart]. Do not forget about me ’cause I will forever think about you, and I cannot wait for you to see me again. I’m out.”

Emergency message from Mr. Donovan – has had a major computer malfunction and it looks like he won’t be back up by 5 – he’s working hard at it for all of you. Please think happy thoughts.

Well, that was a horrible six hours. Just after 3pm, I, AK Donovan, acting under the suggestion of the techies at Ustream, installed an Adobe server thingie so that the Doncast would stream in better quality… and it destroyed my computer.

Fully destroyed my C drive, my Windows installation, my software, and my Sac VS Pip remix lyrics to boot. Amongst other things. I have spent the time since formatting, and reformatting my hard drive, and reinstalling Windows. Thankfully, this has worked, and I am now reinstalling all my software. I am likely to be up all night doing it, as I use a lot of software, from a lot of different places. Frankly, working out what I was using for certain things is going to be task enough… but I consider myself lucky. It could have been much worse. And it was my own stupid fault for even considering turning this workhorse of mine into a bloody server. Fool Donovan!

I did find this all particularly upsetting, however, as this I year I have fulfilled all my promises, and stuck to all my schedules. Now I have a dirty fail against my good name. Bah!

So, my apologies to you that were hanging out in that chatroom waiting on my arrival. I hope it wasn’t too disappointing,and that you at least had some worthwhile conversations, or something.

I am afraid that all the time I’ve lost today means I can’t reschedule for tomorrow or anything – I have a remix to rewrite, amongst other things – so we shall have to try again next week. I have a good feeling about this new installation though. it is cleaner, more streamlined… I think good things will come of it.

Anyway, did I miss anything in there while I was trying not to swear loudly?

OK gang! Today I shall be recording the first All New Weekly Doncast, LIVE from Don Studios IV, via the magic of Ustream… The broadcast with start officially at 5pm UK time, but I shall be testing on and off prior to that time. Yes the royal we will be taking requests, and doing shout outs. Whoop!

We did it! THAT WAS FUN, EH? Cheers gang! You rule! Now to see if it recorded…

Oh no! You guys! Ustream’s default recording is flv! Mono! Sounds like crap! Looks like what went down tonight will only be experienced by those that were there!

Which is kinda awesome when you think on it.

* thinks on it.


Well, a Doncast will happen again. Same time, 5-7pm GMT next Wednesday. And I will record it with my own machines of recording, and my mike levels will have been sorted in advance based on what we learned this week. So who knows? Everyone might get to share in the magic!

EDIT: FYI, the comics I was moidering on about were Final Crisis and Cerebus…
