Syndication

Well, it looks like it worked! With a little help from my brother, and stAllio!, the SAR Blog has successfully migrated to its new spot here, at:
http://www.blog.some-assembly-required.net/

Blogger has informed me that our feed subscribers will need to update their feed subscriptions to the following:
http://www.blog.some-assembly-required.net/feeds/posts/default

So, hopefully people will get the message about that somehow. I will look into how this will affect the podcast this weekend, and hopefully be ready to continue podcasting by next weekend... Again, wish me luck...

Thanks for listening!

OK, here we go...

I'm posting a bit early this week, as I'll be "migrating" my blog this afternoon. In a worst case scenario, things crash and burn and then I won't be able to post this weekend, so I decided to upload Episode 45 before making the move...

Up until now, Blogger has supported "FTP publishing", and hopefully after I move everything over to their servers, things will still work as smoothly as they have been. I've been podcasting for about five years now, with very few problems, and that's saying a lot for a technophobe like me!

So, check out this week's episode (#45 - the last episode of our 25th quarter). We've got some special programming coming up next quarter, before we settle in for more new episodes, later in the summer, and then for the rest of the year. In the meantime, stay tuned for a collection of some of my favorite interview episodes, for the next few weeks!

Wish me luck with the transfer... there should be a note soon about changes in the URL, etc. You'll have to update your bookmarks, or subscriptions, and/or who knows what else. Sorry for the inconvenience... I hope you'll stick with us. You can always find each week's new episode here at some-assembly-required.net, no matter what happens...

Thanks for listening!

This week's episode represents the first really big taste of our upcoming CD compilation! Check out Episode 254 HERE.

To mark the occasion of the show's 10th Anniversary, in 2009, Some Assembly Required and mnartists.org teamed up to invite sound collage artists from around the world to submit fifty-second tracks composed of at least 50% post consumer material. The upcoming album, titled "50/50", has been taking a bit longer than expected, but rest assured, a final push is under way, and the release is coming very soon. In the meantime, check out some of what I think are the standouts, in this week's episode (#254).

Since about twenty of this week's tracks are less than a minute long, there are an unusually large number of artists featured this time around. The list of artists who have previously responded to the SAR Q&A is therefor a bit longer as well...

There are over 150 of these online artist features at the Some Assembly Required website HERE, but for now, check out these twenty one...
