Communication Breakdown - Led Zeppelin


This is episode 12.

I'm working on a special show for Halloween. That's this Friday. The classical theme may go straight in the crapper for this one. (Not that that matters.)

We're now near real time.

Its so friggin' cold tonight in my little home office that I'm seriously contemplatin' setting a roaring fire in a trash can out in the side yard below the window.

Maybe I could burn some old tires, 2 by 4's, trash an' crap like that next to a giant inflatable rat.

Times are tough... My union buddies can use all the help they can get these days.

Speaking of tough times....

Tonight confirmed my feelings about this show: in the school, nobody listens.

One of my fellow students reviewed every show but mine. Like that's supposed to make me feel good. I don't even get reviewed when its the friggin' homework. Yeah, sure. Go suck an egg...

Like the video says in the show notes, its a communications break down, and of the dumbest kind.

Thank heavens for my podcast listeners...

Some of you have started to download the shows again.


And as is my wont, I'm starting this show with something that may yet be a classic.

"If Farts Were Made Out of Superball Stuff (w/ Fart Sounds)" by "Lynn JULIAN aka CookieCutterGirl" here on WSPCs ThymeWarp.


We got PSAs:


Campus Safety urges students, faculty and staff to sign up for text alerts, online @

This will be used to inform students, faculty and staff in an emergency.

This was useful last year in the bomb scare.

To sign up, students must know their Spirit ID # (Bring their Saint Peter's College ID.)


Imagine if you did not have your cell phone, facebook or myspace page, twitter account or your IM or Skype ID to communicate with your friends?

Well, political refugees in Elizabeth (?? NJ [?? facility]) only have Snail Mail to communicate with, and yet they pay one dollar per stamp.

Community Service is asking for your help by buying stamp books for these refugees during October.

This ends this Friday.


BED: "The Stars and Stripes Forever" by: "John Philip Sousa"

Don't forget to get out and vote!

Do your patriotic duty.

And remember, you can be a liberal Republican or a conservative Democrat.

The politics don't have a thing to do with the parties.

You could even be, , a free thinking independent.

Just go out and vote.


There are still no prerecorded promos, well except for "moi."

bed: Oilsands by John Jack

Tuesdays at 5 at WSPC:
"Peak Oil" , what it is, what it means to us all (and believe me it does, if you thought that 4.00 a gallon gasoline was bad, (and don't let the pre election slump and sag fool you,) the price of oil will reveal just how incomodious a commodity it is.

I'll be featuring podsafe music so I can retransmit them on a full-blown podcast, with an RSS feed, on iTunes without having to pay my soul out to the RIAA.


The music for this show is "Air of Spring" off an album by the same name.

Its a statement of sheer optimism...

Spring will come again... Eventually... Just as it does in Helliconia... (By Brian W. Aldiss ISBN: 978-0743-444 729 )

No news yet on the show promo. But I'll pretend that its going to happen.

Tonight, the magic word will be, but that would be telling...

Listen and wait for it.
