Sorry for the lack of updates. Life happened, and it took me a while to catch up. For now, the schedule for this podcast is being changed from once a week (followed by nothing for months...) to once a whenever. At least until I get more of a buffer built back up. Anyway, happy listening!
Hi, and welcome to the Open Licensed Music Podcast, the show where we highlight music from artists who let you share their music. I'm Ralph Wacksworth, and today's episode is featuring pop and rock. Much of the music this week has vocals, so with that out of the way, let's get started.
Released.cc - Overture Cello Hardcore (3:16)
Mississippi ( The Phoenix Mix ) (5:46)
Doing Eurodisco (Overboard) (ft. Shannon Hurley) (3:44)
Matter of Time (Mumblemix) (ft. Shannon Hurley) (4:40)
Making Me Nervous (2:31)
That was Released.cc - Overture Cello Hardcore by Released.cc, which is available from SoundCloud and is licensed under an Attribution Noncommercial Share-Alike license. After that was Mississippi ( The Phoenix Mix ) by Loveshadow, Doing Eurodisco (Overboard) (ft. Shannon Hurley) by Ic3m4n, and Matter of Time (Mumblemix) (ft. Shannon Hurley) by Incoherent Mumble Train, all three of which are available from ccMixter and are licensed under an Attribution Noncommercial license. Finishing up was Making Me Nervous by Brad Sucks, which is available from Jamendo and is licensed under an Attribution Noncommercial Share-Alike license.
I'm a big fan of webcomics, and there are a lot of really good ones out nowadays. But some cartoonists are not only awesome enough to put their work up online, but allow you to share it. For example:
- xkcd, a gag-a-day comic covering general geek humor
- Enjuhneer, a story comic about the cartoonist's experiences attending a tech college
- Spiked Math, a gag-a-day comic about math, with a strong emphasis on horrible puns, and
- Skin Horse, a story comic about mad scientists' monsters working in government social work jobs
They make for a very fun read, and the cool thing is they're all open licensed!
Don't tell me (edited) (3:30)
Shaky Bone Disease Epidemic (3:30)
Circus Freak Flattery Drum N Bass Mix (4:19)
Falling More In Love (4:46)

Then we had Circus Freak Flattery Drum N Bass Mix by Kamihamiha, which is available from ccMixter and is licensed under an Attribution Noncommercial license. Finishing up was Falling More In Love by Celestial Grounds, which is available from Jamendo and is licensed under an Attribution license.
Today's app-of-the-day is Dia, a very nice little diagram drawing and editing program. Basically, you draw in shapes and connect them with lines or arrows. It works great for flowcharts and wiring diagrams. And if you want to change something, you can just drag the shape and the lines connecting it to the other shapes move right along with it. It's available for Linux, Mac OS X, and Microsoft Windows. Download it today at http://live.gnome.org/Dia
Now for a short noncommercial break from one of our nonsponsors, followed by more music.
The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes
Drop Down (3:14)
The Highlights (edited) (3:41)
lee-dai jones lord he rides ep (3:39)
That was Drop Down by Mike Falzone and the Peppermint Trick, a slightly edited version of The Highlights by Sunwill (which I have a hard time hearing the lyrics of, so I'm not entirely sure what it's about, but the music's awesome), Che by Thoola, and finishing up was lee-dai jones lord he rides ep by Lee-Dai Jones, all four of which are available from Jamendo and are licensed under an Attribution Noncommercial Share-Alike license.
So, that's all for today. Remember - piracy of commercial music only proves your dependence on that model and justifies further censorship and restriction. So don't pirate it - replace it with something better. Listen to open licensed music, donate to the artists behind it, go to concerts, and buy music from artists whose record labels don't see you as their enemies. Support artists where your support actually counts.
