I think it was last month in one of  Jonathan  Mosen's shows that he
played the music of John Lennon's Imagine with the voice of President G.
W. Bush saying the words -what a contrast.

Oh wow!  I had no idea what it was.  I had a server going for a little
while, and someone uploaded that to me, but my computer crashed just a
few days ago, and I lost a mega amount of stuff, but I'll see if I can
get that back, and if I do, I'll let you know.

Hi Mary:
There is a really great album I wish I had, it's a National Lampoon
thing from 1973 called the Basement Tapes.  It features, among other
things, just what you are talking about regarding editing someone's
voice.  They took Nixon's voice from several speeches and editing them,
made him say all sorts of things he never really said.  Really, it was
quite funny and a marvelous sound trick.  I am still looking for a copy
of it to add to my collection.  I have there National Radio Dinner album
but can't seem to find anyone who has this one.  I saw a program the
other day that demonstrated how pictures of real children can be brought
into a program that allows the user to create porn.  They can make the
child become animated and it was amazing what these guys did when they
brought a picture of a real kid to life.  Now that really scares me!

Hi all,
It's late and I need to quit to be able to get up reasonably early
tomorrow since I have a grocery delivery and want to start holiday
baking. I need to check out copyright and stuff on the various podcast
storage sites; am leaning more toward libsyn but have also looked at
ourmedia. I feel a bit more comfortable with libsyn but I suppose there
are good and bad aspects to each site. I know there's a blind podcaster
e-mail list someplace but not sure I want to join anything else since
BCT and the 4 or 5 other lists keep things flowing just about right; not
too hectic but plenty to keep things interesting. So I will have to do a
bit more checking; I'd rather not have somebody run off with my stuff
and claim it's theirs, but then it makes sense to just podcast public
domain stuff anyway. I like things to be rated G, so to speak, but still
get nervous about what people can use and how they can use it. I heard a
scary news story about how technology is so good now that they can take
tiny snippets and words from interviews, re-arrange them and make the
person say something he didn't really say. Somebody was doing that with
John Lennon, of all people, just taking sounds and phrases and words and
combining them into things he never really said, but it's in his own
Ok, I'd better quit thinking about this. Why is it that at night it's so
easy to come up with this weird stuff! Tomorrow I'll have forgotten all
about it or think it's silly. But it isn't, really; there's a relevant
point to it.
