Dumpster Bust Radio #4: Pods Are Mod, Since You Asked…

Hot off the digital press:

Dumpster Bust Radio: Podcast #4

We’ve scrapped the Featured Story this week so that we can bring you even more things that you didn’t know you needed to know but then found quite necessary to reside in your informational medulla-type storage capacital recesses. And other stuff.

Great show! What's that number for the Jedi academy again?

If I can make one recommendation, I think it would be nice to have some other voices on your show (actual voices -- not your imitations). Perhaps some sort of panel discussion for evaluating your beloved TV shows? Otherwise, it sounds too much like a lecture.

You just name the time and the place.

I just posted this on blogcritics too, man...

eric, i loved this. i don't even know what to say about it, the whole thing just gelled, man. those skit bits were great. the traffic report, aw man, that was great.

the only thing i would offer in some sort of critical manner is that there's a bit of a pause between you introducing the bits and then the bits themselves. a second or so of "dead air" as it were. maybe that could be tightened a tad?

but that is, honestly, the biggest nit i could find to pick. thats one vermin-free head of hair right there.

and the music was brilliant.

just great, man. i hope to get the mondo thing recorded tomorow. i been up to my neck in bullshit this week.

great stuff man.

and thanks a million for the plug, man. god, im honoured to be deemed worthy of a mention in dumpster bust radio, thats for fuckin sure.

Eric Berlin said...

Thanks Duke. I agree about the second or so of dead air -- I need to tighten that bit up. I'm actually amazed that the show firmed up as tightly as it did -- was a bit of a mess at first, but I think that the overall style is coming together more and more each week.

Thanks regarding the bits as well -- I hate the fact that my voices kind of suck, but the truth is I love the comedic stuff, being a bit of an ass outside my normal (un-ass like, one hopes?) character.

And regarding the plug: it's well deserved. I wouldn't back no kind of no-account podcast scene.

Three o'clock - after school. Be there.

The Sore Loser said...

Seriously, I'm happy to do it. Just let me know what you want to discuss in advance so I can watch the show. I haven't been keeping up with the shows you mention, but I did catch the Apprentice last week, and I caught Project Greenlight two weeks ago.

Eric Berlin said...

3:00 High? Will the Duker be there (not The Duke, but the Duker, mind...).

I'll talk to you about this off-line, TSL, thanks.

Show was sweet. I laughed hard. I gave my friend a call and we both had a big laugh over the Jedi Knight Academy. Funny stuff.

Also, wanted to say thanks for the exposure. Was quite flattered to see an awesome show like this exposing music like mine.

I'm definitely spending my Saturday nights at Jedi Boogie Nights, from now on.

All right, that's all for now. Thanks again!

Great to hear from you, Froppo... (is that your name?).

It's my pleasure to promote some of the outstanding indie music out there, and your stuff certainly fits the bill.

Glad you enjoyed the Jedi Knights bit as well. I've toned down the skits element on DB Radio, but I still try and inject some humor into the proceedings.

Please stop back and check out Dumpster Bust anytime!
