Music Heard on a Walk in the Night

Jul 27 2008 Published by under Audio, Music

We were just out for a walk and came across some people playing music in their house. Listen to the humans and the insects jam away into the night.

Live from Planet Zok – A New Project

Jul 26 2008 Published by under Live from Planet Zok, Website

The Media Collective is preparing a new project to begin this coming semester on Purdue Student Radio: Live from Planet Zok.

The show will be a mix of music, improvisation, and audio from the web site. There will also be a segment where listeners can call in and share their thoughts with the topic of the week.

We will be posting flyers around campus to generate awareness of this new project, but we will also need your help spreading the word as well. Tell your friends they will have a reason to listen to the student run radio this fall.

Here is our first design:

Taking Indiana Very Seriously

Jul 19 2008 Published by under Audio, News Channel Internet

While walking through the local farmer’s market and purchasing some lovely produce from the Cooley Family Farm, among other vendors, we were approached by Obama supporter wanting to know if everyone in our party was registered to vote. After telling her that we have been registered voters for a number of years, she asked if we knew about the Obama regional office opening at 514 Main St. We had heard about it, we told her. She then asked if we knew about the opening reception taking place at 1PM today, with former US Senator Birch Bayh as a guest speaker. That we hadn’t heard about, so we took a flyer and told her we would be there. We finished our shopping and went home.

When it was time to go, I headed towards downtown Lafayette. I parked the car in the 5th street garage and walked over to the address, 514 Main St. The office was setup in a decent size space, easily accommodating those that were in attendance. By the time the speakers started, the place was packed with local officials, young Obama supporters outfitted in the various Obama clothing lines, and several people draped in the campaign garb for local people running.

As usual, I recorded the whole thing. Below you will find MP3s of the entire speech, and each speaker’s speech as its own separate file. Further down, we included a short list of things we learned from attending this event. Enjoy listening to your local politicians.

Lose Yourself in the Hovde Fountain

Jul 08 2008 Published by under Audio, Video

I took a bicycle ride this morning and had some interesting thoughts around the Hovde Fountain (Engineering Fountain).

I take you closer and closer to the source of the flowing water, starting at the top of the steps Hovde and ending on the benches that surround the fountain.

Start the sound to get the full effect of the fountain animation.

Karaoke at Jakes (07-03-2008)

Karaoke at Jakes 07-03-2008

Some friends of ours convinced us to attend a Karaoke Night at Jakes Roadhouse. This audio is a result of that. We have three songs represented:

  1. You’ve Got To Fight For Your Right to Party! by the Beastie Boys
  2. Baby got Back by Sir Mixalot
  3. I Want it That Way by the Backstreet Boys

During the last one, there was a shoutout to our friend, Vicki. There is nothing quite like a bunch of drunk people trying to sing. I highly recommend checking Jakes out on Thursday nights for this reason.

Enjoy!
