Tonight I’ve managed to cobble up an alternative computer for broadcasting the podcast live – the result of which means I’m podcasting with a massive screen in front of me. It feels almost professional, if it wasn’t for the fact I’ve fiddled with the microphone settings and can’t get it back to the way it used to be. I spend the whole podcast sitting very still because every little bump seems to make the sound go weird.

In music news I managed to go to two gigs this week. Two! Jesus and Mary Chain last Friday and Cheatahs last Saturday. My legs have just about recovered and I try and give you rambling reviews of both gigs.

Another new podcast and another new cup. Perhaps I should always make the photos for the podcast a picture of my current hot drink in my most recently purchased mug. This mug is from Edinburgh’s fantastic Artisan Roast. Coffee of distinction for sure.

On today’s podcast I’m a bit grumpy. There are many contribution factors from technology with in-built obsolescence to peeing toddlers. What fun.

Music-wise, tracks from the wonderful Jonnie Common, Wozniak, Stanley Odd and more. At least there’s good music to cheer me up.

1. Jonnie Common – “Binary 101″ (Played courtesy of Song by Toad Records)
2. Stanley Odd – “Pastimes” (Played courtesy of Stanley Odd)
3. The Planes – “Milk Maid” (Played courtesy of The Planes)
4. Wozniak – “Five Star (single mix)” (Played courtesy of Wozniak / Morningside Young Team)

Tonight the podcast may jump the shark.

On last week’s show, for very little reason, I played some great tracks that have been featured on the podcast over the last almost 5 years. I was going to do something similar today because I quite enjoyed making it up as I went along, and entertaining suggestions from listeners on Twitter. However I accidentally sorted the playlist consisting of everything I’ve played by duration… So I thought, I wonder if I can make a podcast by playing every track in order of length from shortest to longest until I get to 45ish minutes. Since there are so many under 60 seconds this could end up being a mad panic. A mad panic with lots of Grindcore and Screamo.

I realise this is something I probably should have saved for that upcoming 5th anniversary, but who cares. Let’s do it.

After last week’s show in which I played a track by Schwervon someone tweeted at me to say (admitting they hadn’t listened for a while) that they really enjoyed it and were keen hear more… A quick glance at my “previous podcasts” playlist in iTunes suggest they’re one of the most played artists on the show!

Anyway, this got me thinking. I’ve played a lot of things on the show over the last 5is years. And I’m sure many people just dip in and out, so I thought I should do a show where I stumbled through that “previous podcasts” playlist and played some tracks that I (and maybe you) had missed or forgotten about.

It’s a bit of an experiment – in that the podcast playlist is normally set in stone before I do the show. Doing this requires a technical change which I’m sure will go horribly wrong.
