Download it now!
BTW, here are the lyrics to the song for those who are interested:
We want a podsafe Christmas song
We want a song that's safe to play
Don't think us rude, we don't want to get sued
By the thugs at the RIAA
We want a podsafe Christmas song
Santa don't delay
Give us a podsafe Christmas song to celebrate Christmas day.
Enjoy and Merry Christmas! :)
It's the beta version for the next level menu for TV. Apparently, they are tying in with online content. I'm pretty unsure what kind of impact this should have on the podcasting world, but it's a pretty cool step to say the least. Check out more exclusive photos and the story here.

Apparently, a few illustrations have been either banned or removed from the Flickr set. This includes all of my drawings, but most notably, all of the wonderful drawings by illustrator Ape Lad were removed from the Flickr set. This comes on the heels of a Boing Boing story from earlier in the week that the 700 hoboes project had reached 100 drawings. Not only that, but Ape Lad's drawings were being used to illustrate the stories on BB and on Drawn! Talk about a slap in the face.
Now, I understand that the original call to action by Boing Boing was for 700 different illustrators to draw one hobo each. But come on now. Would it really be a terrible thing to see more than one version of the same hobo? Would it be awful for one illustrator to draw more than one hobo? Would the world be worse off if there were two or possibly three versions of Crane T. Eyebrow Smeller? I think not. In fact, I think it would be rather cool to see different interpretations. IMHO, it makes the set better and more interesting than it already is.
So I think I'll try drawing one more and see if shows up in the set. I've been promised by the Flickr staff that my drawings are again public. In any event, Ape Lad has started his own group to showcase all of his phenomenal hobo drawings. And some other artists are joining this renegade "bum group" as well. As fas as I know, this is the only place where you can see the missing Hobo drawings.
Check out the group here. And in the spirit of the holiday, let's give thanks that you can still see the drawings on the net. For now.
UPDATE: Looks like BB has taken notice of this travesty as well.
UPDATE #2: Here's a clever one -- take a photo of your hobo and upload it to Flckr! Brilliant!
UPDATE #3: We encourage everyone interested in contributing to the 700 Hoboes Project join the Flickr 700 Hoboes Group. Unfortunately, we can't do anything about the other hobo illustrations that aren't NIPSAed on Flickr. But with any luck, this project will go on much longer than the original 700 expectation.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. There has been a bit of controversy with the 700 Hoboes project. Apparently, I can't have a Flickr set of just illustrations. So a few cartoonists, myself included, were banned (temporarily) from the project. Anyway, I've started uploading some photos to my Flickr account and this is one of them. My meeting with a wax Al Roker last Feburary in Vegas.

"EUGENE, OR (T100 NEWS): Former MTV video jockey and "father" of Podcasting, Adam Curry is poised to release a line of action figures based on the many of the hosts of today's hot phenomenon called Podcasting. The figures, to be relased by toy giant Hasbro, are small representations of some of the hottest Podcast shows including "The Dawn and Drew Show," "Jawbone Radio," and even Curry's own show called "The Daily Source Code."
Other characters such as the "Dawn and Drew" figures have props that go along with the figures, such as a replica of the farmhouse they broadcast from with real working farm animals. There's even a small computer inside the farmhouse that they would use to record the shows in real life. The Jawbone Radio character is wearing a small T-shirt with artwork from the real host and artist of the show, Len."
Wow! What an honor. :)
Thanks to Mr. X for the heads up!

Oh man...I got an e-mail alert today...this is so tempting...but I'm playing 4 games right now! And I don't even have enough time to play those! How the hell am I going to play this??
UPDATE: Ok, I broke down and got it today. If anyone wants to play with me, I'm an Undead Warrior named Worradius.
That sounded so geeky.

I saw this on Boing Boing and Drawn last week. It's called the 700 Hoboes project. An writer named John Hodgmanwrote this piece.. It's basically him reading 700 fictional hobo names. Well, different artists have decided to try to illustrate all 700 of them. There's a pretty good group of them on Flickr. So I decided to add my art to the foray. Seems like a pretty fun project. I'll probably do more, if people like em. that is.
And for those of you who have been voting in our poll as to whether or not Nora and I should show ourselves, you should be pleasantly surprised. There is a sketch of Nora and I done specifially for the calendar. So if that's not a reason to buy, I don't know what is.
Go check it out here.

Ah. yes...it's back to doing some podcast art. This time I am creating some quick new art that will be going into a 2006 Calendar of my artwork. There has been some interest from the podcasting community for a calendar and I plan on delivering. Up above, you'll see some artwork for the Podcast Rant podcast. Mighty fine!
Here's a little something for the folks over at the Restart Podcast. Any reason to draw Vader is fine by me!
And finally, here is something that I did for the folks over at Smart Popcorn.com.
And finally, here's a little something for my friend, Brad at theWhole Lotta Nonsense Podcast. It was a drawing based on a panel from Pearls Before Swine.
More on the way!
As I've mentioned on this blog and on our show, ExtraLife remains one of my favorite podasts out there. Great sound, engaging and always funny. Plus, now it has me on it, so ever bettah!
You can check out the show here.

In the meantime, go forth and vote!

Anyway, it's an honor. Here's the link. (Thanks, Patricia!)
I talked about this topic on the show a bit and I want to officially go on the record here as saying that I don't think vidcasting is a totally bad idea. There is some serious potential. As a listener pointed out to me, our friends Bryan and Gene are doing their own vidcast. But their vidcast is in a television format and is powerful enough to keep you entertained.
I will stand by my statement that watching a video version of a podcast is not the way to go. Unless you are Howard Stern and there is some interest in seeing what is going on in your studio, watching hosts chat back and forth is simply not interesting.
What didn't make it into the article were my comments about the production of vidcasts. I personally feel that it takes a totally different skillset to produce a worthwhile vidcast. The beauty of podcasting is that you can multitask while listening. You can sit on a train or in your car and still be immersed in the show. A vidcast needs 100% of your attention. And you have to think a bit differently when producing in the visual medium. And my opinion is that few people can make the transition from "radio" to "tv".
Anywho, I hope I don't come off as too much of a wet blanket, but someone had to take the opposite side. If you're interested, you can read the whole story here.

Preferably on a PS2, online, with a headset. I wanted to play last year and all my buddies were on PC servers, which I couldn't access. I know for a fact that I am getting this game next week. So is anyone out there going to able to play? Anyone? Anyone?
ON EDIT: I got the game on Monday night and am currently playing it. It rocks. I love playing instant action as a Wampa on Hoth or killing tons of Gungans on Naboo. If anyone else is up for playing the PS2 version online, please drop me a line or just leave a comment here.
