Again with the offers.

"Alors les Francophones, vous attendez apres quoi exactement? L'offre est encore bonne. Joignez vous a et creez un podcast en Francais"

"Dann die Deutschen warten Sie, nach denen genau? Das Angebot ist noch gut. Verbinden Sie hat Ihnen und Verursachen Sie ein podcast auf Deutsch."

Feedback comes first, so...

I've had some from the Netherlands.

We're on the verge of getting a Dutch speaking MSer to do some podcasting, in Dutch of course.

I remember walking along the "Zuiderzee", between the rain swept new lands, the Netherlands, "les pays bas" and the cold, rain soaked, gray sky stretching over the cold, rain soaked, gray North sea; staring at the huge earthen dike as the rain slicked road receded into the mists. (It rained a lot when I was there; a lot!)

This 'spreading the MS word' is not happening overnight, but then "Rome wasn't built in a day". (Hmmm... Rome... I wonder if I could get a Italian MSer to podcast? [Taps his teeth with the well chewed barrel of a pen and stares off pensively.])

Maybe you don't care, but I do. (Mouhaha! Its all part of my plot for "vurld domination." First I take Manhattan und zen I take "Berlin" [But der Chermen, zey are being very, very crafty... ] :-)

Feed forward comes next, so...

There is really nothing that anyone wants me to share with all of you, so get ahead of the curve and share something with them.

It can be anything ... a recipe, a tip or trick, a story or even a joke.

Tell me so I can tell everyone.

We all win when we share of ourselves.


Tomorrow is an ultra short, special edition of the podcast: "Bum Rush The Charts."

You're being asked to go to the iTunes [ ] music store, a buy a tune ("Mine Again" by "Black Lab"), support the concept of independent media, propel that tune up the sales chart without big record company support, and "Bum Rush The Charts"

Its only going to cost you $0.99, (almost half is going back to the community because "Black Lab" are contributing half of their take to a scholarship fund.)

You get to tell big media to wake up and get their heads around the fact that their listeners matter, that the artists matter, and that the distribution matters.


Meanwhile, there will be no show on Friday as I'm off to a mandatory training session, (as if you could teach this old dog new tricks. :-)

Feed Me! come third, so...

Do you have a therapy, product, good or service that is of interest to MSers?

Consider advertising on this podcast.

Reminders on this segment only cost $0.03 per reminder per download of an episode. (A $30CPM targeted at MSers.)

It can/should lead to a full ad, in text, audio or video, which costs $3.00 per download.

That sounds expensive until you do the math and realize that if nobody downloads it it costs you nothing, unlike print, where you often can't even get an ad in to the specialized journals, or radio or TV where you'd just be wasting your money with the 0.0833% MSers rate of return. (That's about six times "below" the level of "statistical noise".)

But MSBPodcast is 100% in your market, and you only pay per download of your material.

No play, no pay.

Reach the MSers who would buy your therapy, product, good or service, with-out having to waste your advertising money on anyone who is "not" interested...

Main Topic: The Clapp Heard Round The World.

Of course, the subject doesn't makes any sense, regardless of weather or not you've read the the topic.

I started putting together this episode which was supposed to be all about Laura Clapp, but I sort of got distracted.

The music got all European and I left my infatuation with Ms. Clapp behind in a labyrinth of remembrance.

I really wish I could get a French MSer to get on board.

---- "Mexico" by: "The King Of France"

Main topic, part "deux":

Think I'm kidding about the French?

Guess again, "mes mecs".

I remember reading "Le Petit Simonin" when I was too young to really appreciate it and the very Parisian "Argot" polluted my speech for over a year.

Everyone was either a "gonze" or a "gonzesse"; I was "une lumière"; my buddies were "mes mecs" and we were always trying to keep our "esgourdes"clean around the "toubib" to avoid getting a shot.

Then I discovered "Fernandel" [ ].

For a good stretch, I became utterly unintelligible to anyone who was not from "Marseille, alors, hein?"

I just loved "la bande dessinée".
  • "Tintin" [ ] with "Milou" and "le capitaine Haddock" ("mille million de sabords, australopitheque, bashibouzouk..." and on and on,) or
  • "Spirou" [ ] and I loved, loved, loved
  • "Modeste et Pompon" by "Franquin", [ ] (There is one cartoon by Franquin that still cracks me up, years later, whenever I even think about it. [Question: "How do you make a man happy in his dotage?" Answer: "Tell him a joke when he's young." Damned if it isn't true...])
And there are too many others "bande dessinée" to count.

I had a very strange, very multi-cultural, while still unilingual, and terribly onomatopoeic childhood. :-)

That set me up nicely for later learning English by reading comic books.

When my family finally got a TV I was ready for it.

Ted Zeigler [ ] a.k.a. "Johnny Jellybean" was god and I venerated at the black and white Electrohome altar.

There was no sound effect that Johnny Jellybean could dream up that I was incapable of intoning, and often did, driving my parents utterly up the walls with distraction. :-)
