TomCast 017: Better Late Than Never

Getting this week’s podcast sorted has caused some issues. My internet died on the day I’d set aside for research and recording so I couldn’t do that at home.  Instead, I bundled my iMac, mic and other peripherals in my car and headed to my parent’s house, only to find that their internet is down as well.

Not one to let trivial things like this get in the way I’ve recorded a show with music that I already had on my computer. As I write this on the WordPress app, I’m dreading the process of uploading the podcast and artwork via 3G on my phone.  Hopefully it makes its way to your ears. I’ll make sure the tracklist is up to date as soon as I can.

TomCast 015: Catching up with Latest Releases

This week I’ve been struggling with some internet troubles and an ISP with no interest in helping me fix them.  Nevertheless, I did manage to procure some new tunes whilst perusing the latest releases from some of my favourite web based music sources.

Sadly, not having an internet connection at all when I came to record the show, I couldn’t do any detailed research about the artists so info is a bit scarce.

I did add a backing track when I’m speaking to make up for it though.

TomCast 014: Something With A Bit Of Swing

This week’s podcast concentrates on music with a swing sound and influence, I’ve got various different swing related grooves for you that will make your feet tap and your head bob.  Maybe with some full on dancing too!

Quick side note because I’ve had a good week for various reasons.  The first is that I’ve now got a proper microphone  so the quality of my voice recording is now much better!  Woop!

Also, I had this week off work so I spent some time designing some new artwork for TomCast (now you don’t have to put up with my speaker cone infested face!).  I’m not much of a designer though, and there’s no way I could produce a vectored cassette tape.  Of course, the internet solved the problem, so I would like to thank Antoniu over at his webpage Fuzzimo, he does loads of graphic design stuff and puts it out there for people to use, you should check it out!

TomCast 010: Recap

Slightly different format today.  I thought that as this podcast pushes me into double figures, I’d have a recap of some of the music I’ve already played.

Today’s episode contains different tracks from artists I’ve already played.  One artist from each previous podcast.

TomCast 009: A Nordic Adventure

Today I’m taking my parent’s to the airport.  They’re going to Norway to hopefully see the northern lights which I am incredibly jealous of.  That, and my love for Iceland and it’s music prompted me to have a search for Nordic music.  So come and take a journey with me on this Nordic adventure, discovering music from Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, and Iceland.

Inspector’s Diary: Hard Times

Dear Diary,

It has been many weeks since I last wrote to you, it has not been possible.  Since family died, life has been cruel.  Am only able to write today through act of kindness, I must be brief.

Two days after death of family, M.O.A. evicted me from Class 8 dwelling.  I could not find affordable residence, have been living on streets of Arstotzka.

Winter is bitter cold in country, is difficult to stay warm, especially at night time.  I have found other homeless citizens, most have also been cast aside by Arstotzka’s Ministries.  Left without way of sustaining themselves.  But all are good men and women, I have been welcomed, they helped me survive.  Showed me ways of getting food and keeping warm.

Arstotzkan Police service does not take kindly to homeless, sending armed officers to raid areas where homeless dwell.  We are constantly moving, trying to keep away from police.  I very much wish to stay in one place, but it cannot be.

We live in fear.  Cold, and hungry.  Barely able to live.  Things must change.  This country is disgrace to its citizens.  I want to put stop to it.  Arstotzka could be great, could become deserving of glory.

Things will change.

Soon.

“Inspector’s Diary” is based on the video game Papers Please by Lucas Pope.
