FYI: Something to entertain the masses?

I'm thinking about opening up an audio blog. You know, just bitchin' about stuff, maybe some weird stuff. Mostly while I drive around the state working on crap. I'm not much for words at times, so not sure how it will go, but why not. I have alot of free time driving all day. So why not do something to entertain the masses? Sounds like a good idea to me. I will post a link to the feed when it gets rolling. I don't think it will be included with this feed, NML is a music show, to promote hard working musicians like myself, and I don't think it should be fucked with. NML is fine just the way it is.

Speaking of fucking with NML, I just downloaded v33 and noticed Fruitcast re-encoded my mp3 files! I'm pissed! I encode at 192k and always in stereo for the best sound quality possible while keeping the file size manageable. Fruitcast re-encoded my mp3 files to 128k mono! It's not bad quality, but it's not what I would have chosen. So if you have been having issues with sound quality, and would like the show in stereo at 192k, you can get it here at the show blog. Just click download this show, but if 128k mono is fine with you then, the feed should be fine. It is a smaller file, and sounds OK, but it's just not the best ya know...

Headbangers Lab is tomorrow! Got some great bands in the set list already, DON'T MISS IT!

I hear you about the re-encoding of the files. I had this gripe as well, but I voiced it to the creators of fruitcast a little while ago. Their response to it was that when they originally set it up, that's how the ad's were encoded, and for compatibility for any add to be injected, they just did it all the same. Now, there's good news on the horizon, because they also mentioned to me that they were in the works of version 2 of their backend, and one of the things they intend to change is possibly leaving your original encoding, and re-encoding the add to match, or to at least re-encode at 128, stereo, not mono. Apparently, it's not just an easy thing to do....

hmm....
