I’ve been planning on mentioning this for a while now.
For months, several months.
A long ago I bulk changed the format of my podcast tracks—to appease the many podcast aggregators that are mp3 only.
I didn’t realize archive.org used such aggressive settings with their auto-derive function. 🙁
Since then, I’ve been creating my own mp3, but there’s still a yuge majority of ill-converted tracks in my feed. I’ll have to edit them one at a time, like 30…five. Like having to look through the original files of thirty items, and updating the feed items accordingly. Most were originally broadcast as m4a, but not all, some were mp3 to begin with, so I can’t just bulk change all extensions.
Maybe there’s a WordPress log somewhere of the changes I made, hunting that down may be monotonous as well.
Not looking forward to it
Been avoiding it for months
The beginning and the end are worn.
Virtual instruments controlled by samples.
A G-man posing as a number station.
A preachy New Year’s reveler.
Ice calving from an iceberg.
A hammer strike.

Example of my Technique
Brusier.m4a is a field recording I made on a warm October morning between a dry cleaners and a restaurant. A downspout was producing a crazy discordant noise. I think it was ice from a freezing up A/C unit on the roof, but I’m not sure.
Kids and dogs wandered by wondering what the hell I was doing crouched down holding my phone up to the downspout.
The recording became
bibruser3_stems_OuiDecay-001 the rhythmic jangly stringy percussive cohesive backing layer of Junkie.

Franklyn Monk Dronecast #34
So, I sold blood plasma in order to keep this website going.
And cycled back in the Texas heat, and passed out on my porch.
Smashing my head on brick. Ended up with thirty stitches.
A week later I get them taken out to find they “didn’t take” and I’m gonna loose a huge chunk of my eyebrow. I’m bummed about it.
I’m going to do it again as soon as I’m healed enough to donate.
I’m serious about my art.
