Episode #183 Shownotes

Another PodCrawl is in the books. Virtually all the audio in this episode was recorded during the day of podcrawl, with only a couple of explanatory pieces added in afterwards. With one exception the audio is presented as recorded as well. I did edit out a truck going past while I interviewed Jordan Reyne. So it's all pretty raw and will hopefully give you an idea of what was going on during the day. Some of the audio quality isn't brilliant because of this.

It's only now that I realise I forgot to release any shownotes for last weeks episode after I returned from PodCrawl, so here are the videos and an mp3 from last weeks show.

Only one produced video, but a lot of high quality live performances. As I mentioned in the show the Loopsy Dazy video is extraordinary. The video shows exactly how the track 'Alalia' was made. What you hear on the video is the same as what got released as an mp3. It's fascinating watching Mikey and Eleanor improvise together and create wonderful music in front of you.

Episode #181 Shownotes



This picture shows the finish of Stage 4 of the Giro d'Italia, the day after Wouter Weylandt died. All his Leopard-Trek team-mates finished together as a tribute to their dead colleague. 3rd from the right is the American sprinter Tyler Farrar, who is a rider for the rival Garmin-Cervelo team, but was Weylandt's best friend and training partner. A great show of respect that is moving and thankfully rare in modern cycling. This image along with a picture I found of Weylandt and his girlfriend I used for the album art for this episode sums up the tragedy and irony of this death. Dying almost exactly a year after his biggest victory and with a pregnant girlfriend at home is just too cruel.

I get the impression that people didn't like 'Curse of the Black Spot' because of the lightweight and somewhat frivolous tone. In my opinion there needs to be this type of fun episode in Dr Who, especially when the tone of the Moffat era has been more adult and arc-heavy than the Davies era.

Thanks once again to Caroline of The Bugcast for her extensive feedback this week.

A reminder that I'd like people's opinions on whether I should produce an extra feed on WMVP for large format, HD versions of the show.


The Hesta Prynn video is awesome and the Hussle Club one is nicely shot as well.

Episode #180 Shownotes

I stated when the coalition was agreed last year that I thought it would collapse within a year. I now believe this even more, but unfortunately if the coalition does collapse the Liberal Democrats would be in a very weak position. Unfortunately I think that Liberal politics are heading back to the bad old days.

Between recording this episode and writing these notes I've seen episode 3 of Dr Who. I admit I was dubious about pirates in Dr Who, but I was pleasantly surprised. Get a full review next episode. The next episode is written by Neil Gaiman, which I am looking forward to immensely.


Almost a full compliment of videos this week. 3 pretty nice produced videos and 2 good quality live performance vids.

Episode #179 Shownotes

This week's episode title provided by Alex Albrecht from The Totally Rad Show.

Remember you can now find Weekly Music Video Podcast at wmvp.tv.

To clarify a couple of things I talked about regarding Dr Who. Not all the two-part episodes I discussed were written by Steven Moffat. 'The Time Of Angels'/'Flesh And Stone' and 'The Pandorica Opens'/'The Big Bang' were written by Moffat. 'The Hungry Earth'/'Cold Blood' were written by Chris Chibnall. Even though I mentioned it elsewhere in the episode I forgot about 'The Empty Child'/'The Doctor Dances' from Series 1. So in conclusion 'The Empty Child'/'The Doctor Dances' from Series 1 and 'Silence In The Library'/'Forest Of The Dead' from Series 4 were both excellent two-parters. 'The Time Of Angels'/'Flesh And Stone' and 'The Pandorica Opens'/'The Big Bang' from Series 5 were both spoiled by the second part. It's still not a good ratio.

I feel that the best way to open a series of Dr Who is with a more light-hearted episode. 'Rose' in Series 1, 'New Earth' (or depending how you look at it 'The Christmas Invasion') in Series 2, 'Smith And Jones' in Series 3, 'Partners In Crime' in Series 4 and 'The Eleventh Hour' in Series 5 all have a certain amount of frivolity to them. You can get serious after the first episode, but you need some fun to help settle in the viewer in the first episode.


Got a couple of nice videos for you this week.
