I’ll be packing up my Technics 1210′s soon.
Sadly the only time I seem to touch these beautiful tools of my ex trade is when I am moving house.
One day I will hook them back up to a mixer and break open my vinyl.
I’m playing around with stuff for AudioMo. Basically I’m thinking of taking the AudioMo website off a hosted WordPress install and put it onto Tumblr.
My reasoning is ease of use. AudioMo will be using SoundCloud in future and the lovely thing about SoundCloud is the post to anywhere option, well I say anywhere, it doesn’t auto post to WordPress. It can embed, and embeds nicely into WordPress. I just want to be able to do this all mobile and on the go. So a combination of SoundCloud and Tumblr would probably be a great way of doing this. I’ll keep playing around and see if I like this method.
I’ll of course keep those who are interested updated.
And the tune is below ;) just turn up the volume, oddly it’s muted on the video embed.
Apart from it being so AudioBoo centric. I am an advocate of diversity in audio challenges i.e. not app/platform centric.
But the fact it is very AudioBoo central isn’t the issue, I love AudioBoo.
The reason I am not taking part in Octaver is, it’s subject and list driven. I have never found challenges that tell you what to talk about as challenges. For me a challenge is to come up with the subject matter daily yourself.
But the actual reason is I am involved in a massive event that ends on Friday. I am also moving house. So most of October will be spent clearing the place I live in now. Trying to make sure my vinyl isn’t thrown out and my 1210′s equally get to the new place.
I totally support #Octaver and all audio challenges, I just physically can’t take part in all of them. But I will big up all audio challenges I am aware of.
This is probably my only entry for #Octaver13, purely cause it references a couple of songs.
Excuse the sound of my voice, I was using the bog standard iPhone earphones.
This is my Dad’s favourite song in the whole world.
I need to try and be at least half the man my Dad is. Currently I’m failing badly.
