    Can’t hear any audio .

  • 2. John B1_B5  |  March 13th, 2006 at 8:55 am

    Ok, I found the audio (on the topline ) . Audio quality sounded a bit “tinny” .

    As for cell phone charges – it’s not a problem for me, as I have it all “under control ” .

    That font you’ve used ini that logo is very ’70s Studio 54, Samuel.

    Makes me want to sing “Stayin’ Alive” and boogie!

    What happened to the MS Paint a la the Samuel Awards? Perhaps a Dolgnwot-inspired art piece could be in order!

  • 5. Samuel  |  March 13th, 2006 at 11:49 am

    Yes, well things recorded with the digital notetaker do sound tinny.

  • 6. wonko the sane  |  March 13th, 2006 at 3:45 pm

    A good choice, Sam. I was kind of hoping you might go with ‘The Cream of Samuel’, but anyway, Editorial Echoes is a servicable handle for your show.

  • 7. Chuck A. Spear  |  March 13th, 2006 at 10:22 pm

    Yes a fine choice of title Samuel Sam..uel Sam.. ue..l. Have you considered doing the automated voice for phone companies? The woman who did the Yarra Trams and Connex stops got paid $300 per hour.

  • 8. wonko the sane  |  March 13th, 2006 at 11:54 pm

    Wow, that’s a lot of money just to speak for a while Chuck! But I guess it would take lots of skill to get the pauses between the words exactly right, and the strange, disjointed inflections in each word correct.

    Sam displayed good form for a first crack though. It could well turn into a nice little earner if he could be put in touch with the right people.

  • 9. Chuck A. Spear  |  March 14th, 2006 at 12:01 am

    Well I know companies prefer a female voice. Maybe If Samuel spoke in the same register as he used in his original Persiflage intro he may be in with a good chance. Yarra Trams have just changed their desinations for the Commonwealth Games so they are looking for someone to do the voice recordings for destinations and stops.

    I find myself humming the themesong during moments of intense stress or intense boredom. It has a calming effect on me for some reason. It’s so jaunty and offbeat. Except the last part, which does get a little high-pitched.

    Hey chuck, are you in a band? What’s their name?

  • 11. Chuck A. Spear  |  March 14th, 2006 at 2:12 am

    I did hear some pre-games gossip today while I was strolling through Federation Square. I heard that God Save The Queen will be replaced with Persiflage at the opening ceremony. I hope this does not change Samuel’s position on the Royal’s.

  • 12. Chuck A. Spear  |  March 14th, 2006 at 2:15 am

    Yes I am in a band. We do not decided on a name yet and we have had no gigs. We are in the rehersal stage and have done some demos. Are you?

  • 13. wonko the sane  |  March 14th, 2006 at 2:21 am

    Nah. Most of my mates are in bands though. My good buddies are in a band called Peeping Tom, Great Southern Electrics and Mushroom Giant. Have you heard of these bands?

    I used to write about music in Melbourne. But as Zappa said, writing about music is like dancing about architecture, so its no real claim to fame.

    If I were in a band, I would call it Mang.

    You can take that if you want chuck…

  • 14. Chuck A. Spear  |  March 14th, 2006 at 2:31 am

    Thanks. I will add it to my list just above ‘The Gordon-Stewarts’. I have not heard of those bands but I will keep an eye out for them. However, I have more than likely read your words before. I have friends who play too. So that is my claim to fame. My other claim to fame that is I had to break into Ian Rilen’s house on NYE 2000 because he locked his keys inside.

  • 15. wonko the sane  |  March 14th, 2006 at 2:39 am

    You know Ian Rilen? I used to drink and play pool with him in Sydney at the Excelsior in Surry Hills. He used to play in a band called The Wetsuits. And now the Love Addicts.

    The Gordon-Stewarts is an excellent tribute to Samuel and a snappy name for a band. Peeping Tom play heavy groove music, they sort of sound like Gentle Giant, Blue Cheer and Kyuss. Very cool. Nice guys too.

    What sort of music do you play? Any marimbas or xzylophones?

  • 16. wonko the sane  |  March 14th, 2006 at 2:40 am

    Sorry to get so off topic by the way. Highly irregular.

  • 17. Chuck A. Spear  |  March 14th, 2006 at 2:53 am

    You serious! I met him that infamous night in 2000 at the Dali Bar in Darlinghurst. I will save the story for another time.It is quite funny as I am sure you will understand. Yeah I seen Love Addicts a few times. Last time was at North Melb Town Hall.

    I spose we play middle of the road rock. I don’t know who we sound like. Lyrically I try to insert some humour. Because I can’t take anything seriously.

    No marimbas but use a harp.

  • 18. Chuck A. Spear  |  March 14th, 2006 at 2:58 am

    Our first single will be called ‘Miss Jane’. I record it all on my home studio setup. I will keep you informed on the progress.

  • 19. Chuck A. Spear  |  March 14th, 2006 at 3:01 am

    I will put our debut on the backburner however, to complete the SGS EP. The world needs SGS more than Miss Jane.

  • 20. wonko the sane  |  March 14th, 2006 at 2:50 pm

    Chuck, naturally. That’s a project that can’t be abandoned.

    Hey Chuck, check out this yarn I wrote for my website on Peeping Tom. I think you’ll really like them. There’s also a bunch of mp3s to listen to on the site down at the bottom — there’s cd reviews on the band too.

  • 21. wonko the sane  |  March 14th, 2006 at 3:02 pm

    It’s worthwhile listening to the mp3 at the bottom of that yarn chuck. It’s part 1 of the 3 part epic. any song that starts out ‘this song’s dedicated to Kev…. thanks Kev’ has to be a winner. Plus the song mentions Hogans Heroes, so extra points there too.

    I’m off to listen to part II of Editorial Echoes…
