The Importance of Coming Home

We finally finished our binaural microphones, so we had to go out and record something. These cuts are from the Chauncey-Village area on October 26h, 2008, the Saturday of Homecoming that year.

To get the full effect of these recordings, please listen with a pair of headphones.

My setup gets caught on the back of a guy’s shirt. Almost ripped the gear out of my hands.

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!

What’s up with that? S01E06

Music from Wolfram Music Generator

Finally, another show has been released. We’re a little backlogged at the moment, but we plan on getting through this audio and serving it up in some nice, short, Internet audio packets. This episode focused on two questions, with some different options (war and Iraq) thrown in when it looked like they didn’t want to answer the one.

  1. BO? How do you combat it?
  2. Economic system? What’s your favorite?

Another episode from the same raw audio that made up S01E01. There is another stab at an intro, some new insights into old topics, and the lovely charm that is Purdue. Music is courtesy of Wolfram’s Music Generator. Enjoy!
