RUHtf: Raretones

Sick of your "Baby's Got Back" ringtone? Embarrassed to answer your phone when MC Hammer yelps "Can't Touch This" out your phone's speaker?? Those of you who have phones that are capable of adding ringtones, I have learned how to make and put them on my phone.

Here's a couple;
Nick Cave: Dig! Lazarus Dig!

(For reasons that will be obvious at the end, my current and favorite tone)

Naz Nomad and the Nightmares: I Can't Stand This Love, Goodbye


To download, right-click on these:
Dig! Lazarus Dig!

If you need help getting the tones on your phone, this website helps:

Rest In(die) Peace

Well...Indie 103.1 is gone...but only in its former incarnation. This may seem a sad day, but let's face it...terrestrial radio is GONE. Do former multi-platinum artists like Prince, Radiohead, McCartney, or Neil Young care about radio anymore? No...because radio doesn't care about them. Trying a new style? Forget about being played on the radio. Want to experiment with your music? no..we'll just play your old hits.

Indie now has the potential to change the paying field. This will be an interesting transition.

Well...i've already discovered the "backdoor".
Indie is "portable". No need to go to their website, click the "Listen live", then choose your player.

You can simply bookmark this link.

Here's the proof of concept:

Its only a matter of time before someone takes this info and creates an ipod/iphone app, a web clip, or whatever else windows users use.

RUHtf: We still feel the same

Those of you who know me (and of those, those of you are keeping score), know that I met Terry, the love of my life, 12 years ago today. A group of us "Yellow-Roomers" (followers of KSCA and denizens of the radio station's message board) were gathering at Perq's to show our support for the soon to be defunct radio station, and see Walter Trout. Neither of us expected to meet the person we'd be spending the rest of our lives with.

Well..at about 7:10 or 7:11 that evening, this picture was taken:


Later in the evening, this picture was taken:


We were a natural fit.

Read about the full story here.

Obviously, music is/was a tremendous part of our lives. It's what brought us together.

Here's one of our favorite bands, Zoey's Trip, doing a rare version of "our" song, "I Still Feel The Same":

I wonder if they knew they were writing it for us??

Happy "meeting anniversary" (or "meetaversary"), Terry. I love you!
