I just updated my Voki that was once on Eclectica's MySpace page, with the new audio intro I just made tonight for sites like the Podsafe Music Network, Podcast Alley, MyPodcast.com, and so on. :)
So, whatcha think..?
Merry Christmas & Happy Yule Everyone!!!
Many Thanks and Much Love,
"DJ Selchie" :)

And lastly; Eclectica's first-ever blooper reel:
(If t'were put in the papers, its headline might read "Podcaster Cracks, Swallowing Microphone Whole." ;))
Now I go lie down for a min... I'm having.. issues.
Hope y'all like!
And just in case you're new to the blog and haven't seen it before, you can find the show's main page here. (Or at the left sidebar of this page. ;)) E's also got a MySpace page, a MyPodcast.com presence, as well as available feeds on lots of the podcasting sites out there (like podpickle.com, podcastalley.com, etc.) You can also find the show (w/a quick search for Eclectica) at iTunes. :D
That THAT is all you shall hear about that, my lovelies. ;D
So now you can hear my podcasts w/o having to DL them, which I hope will really increase prospective listenership. ^_^
"What the hell are you TALKING about woman?!" you say? Well, here's an example- used w/Eclectica's Episode 4: (Which was VERY bellydance-friendly. ^_^)
Hope you Like!
This episode is also dedicated to all of you who might be dealing with the loss of a loved-one, too.
I spent a long time working with incarnation upon incarnation of this episode- trying again and again to put a proper tribute together for my friend, Jeff. But for some reason nothing really turned out right: No podcast ever really fit, and no playlist ever felt truly Right... So in short, his tribute show kept eluding my grasp, and I was afraid that it would never really coalesce.
But for some reason I got inspired to tackle this project again last week, and have since been working on it diligently- no more avoidance, frustration, or procrastination. Everything seemed to fit or flow, and when it didn't, I was able to work through things until they did. ^_^ It's finally finished and feels Truly Right, and I am so grateful. ^_^ ..I guess it just wasn't time.. or I just wasn't ready.
But now it's done, and I invite all of you to listen, if you wish. :)
You can either download it directly here, visit the Eclectica home page @ blogspot.com (where you can find all the song info & artist links), check out a streaming AND downloadable version of it at my MyPodcast page, or you can also find it at iTunes for free download & subscription there. :) (But I have like nooo tags on the thing there- 'cause I still have yet to figure that trick out.)
I hope you enjoy it, and that.. if those whom we miss are still with us in some way, that they enjoy it too. :)
- I figured a few tricks out w/Audacity, and this ep. doesn't have any major flubs or big issues like other previous ones have. I worked on it all night & into today (as I totally got inspired n' it lit a major fire under my butt- you fellow artists know what that's like), and I'm so glad I did. :D:D
- My mic still sucks, but I found a new way to lessen the multi-track-garbling issue, and I'm really, really pleased w/Eclectica's latest episode. ^_^
- The credits are still forth-coming (another detail oriented, time-consuming thing I need to do when I wake back up), but they will indeed be there- so you can find all of the artists' awesome music. :)
- I hope all of you out there in Listener Land like it too; and like I say on the end of each ep- if you have any ideas, comments, questions, concerns etc. for Eclectica or its content, I'd love to hear from you. ^_^ (You can either go to the e-mail address mentioned in the show, or just ping me here. :))
And now I'm off to go write something about this in my Tribe blog real quick; since there're so many bellydancers there, n' this ep. has a lot of ME influence. *glee*
(But to those of you who're not into that sort of thing, don't overlook this ep. because of that! It's got Renny stuff in it, all sorts of silliness, and some generally neat songs in there, too! ;D)
Oh yes, and for those of you who're into it, my wee li'l show can also be found on iTunes. :)
Cheers for now, y'all! *waves n' dances off- only to then pass right out*
They have some -lovely- shops there, n' after a meal and some shoppin', today was a really relaxing, unexpectedly fun treat. ^_^ See? Sometimes it's a little clearer that God watches over us.. no? My afternoon wasn't wasted, I got to treat myself to a little villainously ghetto Micky D's (which I never have), and found some gifties for friends, even. :D:D OOH! Plus -just- before I got the call from MA that my ride was outside, I was able to pop over by B. Dalton's, and got some BOOKS! :D:D I snagged the "Zombie Survival Guide" (and I bet you thought I'd already have that, didn't you? ;D) and the first book from the Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris. ^_^ (If you're not already familiar, it's the books which inspired HBO's "True Blood" series- that I also enjoy as well. :))
So all in all, today was a good day. :D
Plus it's raining- which always smells and feels so crisp n' good, I got to sleep in 'till waaaaay too late, and now I'm gonna stay up and finish my most recent episode of Eclectica. :D:D
Yep, t'is a good day. *beams*
Hope it's a good one for all of you out there, too! ^_^
Gawd, do you know how ODD it is to hear yourself not only "on the radio," but on a big, public forum..? A published, like.. PRODUCED thing...?? And know not only that it's you, but that you did it??? Gawwwd.. it is bizarre...! :D:D
Good.. but BIZARRE!! :D:D
I'm working on getting my podshow up on iTunes, and a bevy of other podcast feed sites, and listening to my podcast in full for the first time over mypodcast .com is SURREAL.
If you're so inclined, I humbly invite you to go check it out, and join up as a "fan." :):)
And secondly: If thou ckickest yon image above, thou shalt be redirected to mine podcast's yon MySpace page. ;)
2. MY PODCAST HAS AN INTRO!!! ^_^ It ain't perfect by any means, (I have no fancy mic or other recording equipment), but thanks to Audacity Eclectica's first intro is ALIVE, BAYBEE!! ^_^
I'm in the process of putting the full p-cast together nights, and hopefully within a short time I'll have my first podcast up & running! :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D
(..Can ya tell I'm excited..? ;D)
If you're inclined to take a listen, you can find my first two attempts at putting Eclectica together below. :D:D
First Evah Intro. (I doubt I'll actually use this rough cut ON the show, but methinks it's an okay start.. no? :))
First Evah Disclaimah. ;) (Which will at some point be followed in print and in audio by a citation of who the background music is from- which happens to be The Crime Syndicate; the recording being "Middle Eastern.") Methinks I'll get a few more background pieces to boot, so I can switch it up a bit at times. ;D:D
Hope ya like, and thanks so much for listening! *glee*
