This is part of the secret laboratory project I've been working on lately. The other part is something truly epic that will (hopefully) be finished this week. Concerning this portion of the experiment, I've been tinkering with recording software in order to rip various audio samples that tickle my fancy. I've sort of got it down at this point, although I'm having difficulty ripping audio from DVDs. If anyone has a tips on this, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Welcome to the inaugural No Funeral PodTape. What the hell exactly is a PodTape you ask? Well, it's equal parts podcast and mixtape. I've been kicking around this idea for awhile now and it's finally going forward. Much like the current MP3 blog and the zine before it, this is a constant work in progress.
Everyone is familiar with the concept of a mixtape. What sets this apart from other, lesser-quality mixes is that the music is culled from my vast collection of No Funeral-approved recordings. The other thing that sets it apart is the samples inserted between the songs. This isn't a mere collection of music. I'd like to think of the No Funeral PodTape as an experience; the whole being greater than the sum of the parts. That's the goal, anyway.
For the first edition, I've pulled choice selections from Jello Biafra, Bill Hicks, and Hunter S. Thompson; interwoven with the tracklist below. Feel free to leave feedback and comments about what works, what doesn't, and where I should go cram it. This is an experiment in audio radness that conveniently fits onto an 80-minute CD-R (or easily fits on you iPod). Enjoy!
