    So far so good... Again, I'm very sorry about show #13! It's safe to say that I've learned a lot from my many mistakes. Tomorrow I start my new job! Lulu.com "Peter Pan's Revenge" by Seth - third son of Albert (from the WHYME podcast) My brother's homecoming and a feeble rant about the war in Iraq. "Mr. Brocolli" by Tall Dwarfs Belated apology to Tad Dreis for mispronouncing his name. A reminder about the podcasting panel at Dragon*Con! (Atlanta, GA, Sept. 2-5) And last but not least...

    I'm going to be on a podcasting panel at Dragon*Con with Mur from Geek Fu Action Grip and Steve Eley from Escape Pod! It's even possible that Michael Stackpole from The Secrets podcast, and Michael and Evo from The Dragon Page will be there too. I go on for a bit about celebrities I've seen while at work. (Unfortunately I haven't yet been able to locate my promotional Forest of Love perfume, but I know it's around here somewhere!) -"Doing Your Dishes" - Tad Dreis Shout out to Seth from WHYME -"Back Spasm" - Seth - third son of Albert I failed miserably to get Audacity to play nicely with the two voice mails I wanted to include. If anyone out there has any advice, I'm all ears. Shouts out to Neil Gorman from Comicology and Kenneth Newquist from Nuketown Radio Active -"Baby It's Over" - Tall Dwarfs (They will be performing in Chapel Hill, NC at Local 506 on August 4!)

    Chapel Hill, North Carolina gets the show cranked up all the way to eleven! Apologies for the mysterious background static during the talky parts. I didn't do anything differently during editing, so the only possible explaination is that Audacity decided it doesn't like my microphone. That must be it. After some lame excuses for not podcasting more frequently, I get right into some local music. 1. Good For You - Tad Dreis (www.taddreis.com) 2. Sympathetic Thrill - Can Joann (www.canjoann.com, www.myspace.com/canjoann) 3. Ma Tutrice - Kapow! Music (www.buhananrecords.com, www.kapowmusic.net) 4. Ships As Friends - North Elementary (www.northelementary.com, www.sit-n-spinrecords.com) 5. Destructive Behavior - Eyes to Space (www.eyestospace.com, www.myspace.com/eyestospace) Happy birthday Mur!

    I had so much trouble getting this one recorded, that I was beginning to wonder if last week was a fluke! I'm having Audacity and/or mic problems, so sorry if this one sounds worse than my previous podcasts. Last night's Camper Van Beethoven/Modest Mouse show, mainly.
