|What you're about to read is a collection of pointers to some of the music I've discovered on the iTunes Music Store, music I like enough that I want to share it. If you're an iPod owner and an iTunes fan (and if you aren't, what are you doing here?), maybe you'll find something new. Click on any of the CD covers to bounce over to the store and sample a few tracks. And then maybe stop by my other blog for a few well chosen words (and maybe a random snark or two).|
|Have some music to recommend? I can always use a few pointers. Use the comments link at the bottom of the page.|

|The ScapeCast / The ScapeCast Crew|
This post is a first, for a few reasons. For one thing, although I've
mentioned podcasts in a few previous posts, this is the first one I've
devoted to a podcast. And for another, it's the first time in
this blog I've hawked something with which I'm associated. I do it
all the time in my other blog, but not
here. Until now, that is.
Disclaimers aside, I'd want to tell you about The ScapeCast even if I weren't part of the voice "talent". (Keep those quotes in mind; you'll need 'em.) It's a great show, both because of its subject (I've been addicted to Farscape since episode four or so; the addiction remains, long after the last episode reached the air) and because it's awfully entertaining in the way it tries to figure out just what it is about the show, its characters, its plotlines and its visuals (okay, not so much about the visuals; it's kind of hard to do on an audio only production) that makes so many otherwise rational individuals such fanboys and fangirls. (And let me go on the record as pointing out that there are easily as many of the latter as the former, which is pretty unusual for something in the Sci Fi realm.)
If you've ever seen Farscape, you'll find a lot to enjoy in The ScapeCast. And if you haven't, well, we may not convince you, but we'll certainly make you wonder. What, I won't say.
Oh, and my contribution to the show? I read, which I've been doing since I was four or so and at which I've developed some facility after so many decades. I even do funny voices. Funnier than my natural voice, anyway.
