Music will continue until morale improves

· administrivia, long story short, Migration, Musicology, Nanopublishing, Podcasting

Thanks to the enthusiastic example and coaching of my friend from work, Chach, whom I first met when she shared her paints with me and others at a Yes by Yes Yes (later Yes & Yes Yes) un-conference retreat in Palm Springs, I have migrated my clunky old spreadsheet into a nifty Airtable and it has made keeping track of recordings and postings way easier, which will enable me to fill in some gaps, such as:

  • music videos I posted to Youtube but not Facebook, or vice versa
  • performances solid enough that I want to post the audio portion to my Soundcloud
  • and perhaps most relevant here, catching up my catalog here on my own personal blogge

Mildly related also is that I am now writing my own songs, and the li’l database is happy to keep track of that distinction for me, too.

Odeo is Ev's next big thing

Looks like Ev is done finding himself and actually has a new business plan in the can: evhead: How Odeo Happened
Speaking of podcasting, I’m having trouble getting one working for Monkey Vortex Radio Theater. I installed the MT-enclosure plug-in to make the RSS feeds produce the correct enclosure information, and that part seems to work ok, but meanwhile, I’m still not really podcasting, in the sense that the iPodder software isn’t finding the files.
What am I doing wrong? Can someone who has got a podcast working via MT drop me a line and help me sort it out? Thanks!
Time for a podcasting category?
