Give me money!

So, law school starts in 3 weeks and 3 days...or orientation does, anyway. If you've listened to previous shows you know I've been pondering how best to monetize the show. Right now the best thing you can do to help me keep the show going is donate to my webhosting for (osp). While it's true osp and MMPunkcast don't have anything in common besides me, right now I'm in the middle of moving, looking for an apartment and all of that jazz. I am going to try to get flattr buttons up for all the shows. I apparently made one for the first show even though it's got -NC tracks in it. I guess I'll leave it up since no one has said anything. I'll continue to get flattr buttons up for shows that don't use -NC, which probably means I'll no longer be doing -NC. Whether I move to using -ND is still a decision I need to make. I probably won't because I'd like to use tracks here and for MMP.

Just in case you are wondering, I am planning to work for free culture/free software once getting out of school.

Anyway, for anyone who does not have a flattr account, feel free to donate to the webhosting. I doubt I'll be able to register as a 501(3)(c) to allow non-fee Google Checkout, but I will look into receiving donations via other means besides Dreamhost. I'm up for suggestions. Also, is there a way to make a flattr button before you know the URL of the show?

Music Manumit Punkcast - 003

It's a 2 for 1 deal today! Due to my slackness the June and July podcasts have come out today. I know it's poor podcasting form to release two in one day, but I'm a believer in the "release early and release often" philosophy.

On the thought of releasing early and releasing often, I have found myself spending more time on the intros than I thought I would but I think that's because it's just me rather than a discussion with Tom. Things are so new and in flux that I have a lot to say as well. Eventually I hope to say "this is the Music Manumit Punkcast" and be done with it!

Anyway, this show is a rerun of the Music Manumit Podcast interview with Australian singer/songwriter Isaac Graham. We discuss his punk roots, folk punk, his affiliation with Copyleft Record and more!

Per usual, I'm releasing only in the open format ogg. You can download it from the amazing If you have an Android phone, this file will work. Many browsers also have ogg support built in. As for media players, Songbird on Windows/Mac will play ogg files. If you want an mp3 version, let me know - just don't tell me you want it for an iPhone because I might not do it. I can get away with being a dick about it because this is punk rock baby!!
