Yeah, about 50 minutes is good. Our slots are 2 hours and it gets overbearing, for listener and DJ. Also try to pick a theme and stick with it or have your drops sort of planned out (what you'd like to say), it keeps your focus and keeps the energy up.

I know he's no spring chicken, but still, kind of surprised.

Our station gets  an HD signal from the local NPR affiliate UPR (Utah Public Radio), and we have an internet stream.

Unlike some we don't have archives available, but my show is at http://radio.usu.edu on Fridays 8-10 pm MST. We also can't "promote or endorse" an album, if we call it great or something we have to say "in my opinion" which I just ignore, but the FCC thing is going too far with some language. Our contracts have a Lenny Bruce list of what we can't say which is a great source of comedy, and it can't be "sexual" which considering what I sometimes get away with is a laugher but I don't talk as much anymore. If we get a small FM signal we'll have more liberties but we need listenership for that and its the Ipod generation so what can you do. Plus Cache valley is pretty much owned by that UPR group and no one gets in without their say-so, good ol' libertarian Mormons!


The funniest thing happened when I was being interviewed at the station and the director did a drop saying he was about to play some "face melting metal for you all." He played Chevelle. I honestly didn't think I'd last a week but its been 3 years and they've let me go off.

I've been putting doom in my show but its mostly Skepticism and Evoken. FCC bullshit keeps me from making it really ANUS proper but I try to keep the quality high, recently debuted Into Oblivion and the new Blaspherian but its a college station so I don't know how much longer I'll be on.

I wasn't able to play the files (lousy lack of media player skill...) but I really enjoyed the live videos and bits from the myspace. Is there a way to purchase the album? I'd love to hear more and get it on my radio show for my last semester at USU.

Good work.

I'll be going to the Salt Lake City screening that night, whenever it is. Tower Theater has midnight shows friday and saturday and usually a 930 showing before then of a movie of this type. Its a nice theater for what it is, a small indie place run by movie fans. PM if anyone wants to go along or carpool or something.

Sadly not yet. I hope to get started next week after we get our new dj schedules for the summer. Its an internet stream as well as an HD radio broadcast so anyone can listen in but I hope to get some saved for general accessibility.

I haven't heard anything about Radio Nihil recently either, but I do recall that the site was asking for DJs for the show at one point. This is something I can offer, albeit in a strange way. I have a metal radio show up at Utah State University and recently we have gained the ability to record shows for our blogs or whatnot. I will freely admit that much of what I do with the show is inspired by Nihil and KCUF, and I try to mix the music up with ramblings or thoughts of similar quality. One night I read TSZ in german with music as breaks, and plan to have interviews with local philosophers, theologians, or other philosophy readings in the future. Granted, I still have to play station liners and ads, or make occasional announcements (my late night showtime gives me more freedom there), and its all metal instead of the mixture that Nihil was, but in the meantime of getting Nihil up and running again I'll be glad to provide a sort of "Nihil lite".

I can certainly guarantee though that my phone will be put on vibrate during the show :D

Play.com is a UK shop but they claim to have free shipping.
Here's a pre order for cheaper than I've found at Plastic head, which also lists it but isn't 'in stock' until the 13th. Wish I could account for quality but the low price might be an indicator of that.

The song isn't influenced by any movie, it's influenced by the actual murderer whom those movies, as well as Psycho, are loosely based around.

Japel, the album is The Red in the Sky is Ours. There is actually quite a bit of violin throughout the album, particularly the first half. I believe the song you're referring to is the title track.

Someone give this man a hug....then stab him in the back.

Its almost a shame that Dimebag Darrell died so that idiots like this would live. I used to think that Cannibal Corpse were an intelligent group of people that made horrible music, but Boy George here isn't giving much hope for that possibility.  :P

Perhaps, waking up to artillery fire wasn't that much fine either. ;D

About as fun actually as that Devourment show. :'(

That club event was very cool. Unfortunately I had the opposite sort of experience during a Redrum show featuring Images of Violence and a number of friend formed bands. Devourment was playing and I was sitting on the red couch near the mix board. I couldn't keep my eyes open at all but instead of having a rest I was constantly feeling disoriented and frustrated. My dream basically became my memory and mind bonding and I can't keep track of whether I am awake or experiencing a dream, so I tend to not trust my senses even though I am awake (in my dreams the landscape is constantly changing) but trust them enough to wonder about the hallucinations that do occur. It happens to me in odd situations such as when I was driving home one night and pulled over to rest, and in Basic Combat Training when I would wake up and see shadows doing odd things with my perception, and then not believe or understand the guard when he told me the Drill Sergeant wanted to see me because I thought it wasn't real.
I'm not sure if I can recall the effect of music on my dreams, since by then my brain is scrambling the memory of the dream and experience so it doesn't always stay. I can remember at times falling asleep to a long playlist of Carlin or something else, and during my sleep Carcass and Morbid Angel come upon the player, so that some bizarre sound enters my half awake mind or even my dream and all dialog or listening within the state is blurred into the distortion of the music and the world becomes chaos and I find my character (whichever way I am formed or participating) retreating from the objects around due to their lack of sense and looking for something else.
I've also experienced the affect of music and sleep in regards to memory and recollection. I used to listen to Korn when I was in the Army and one of their albums was the only cd I had in AIT school, so I listened to it when going to bed, because I enjoyed the ambiance of it, at least in that it was as far as I had gotten with experiencing ambient music outside of Tool. I don't tend to that band anymore, but on the rare occasion I have listened to that album for whatever reason, the smell of AJAX, old wall paint, cheap mattresses and a dusty floor always comes back to me, the sensation of being in those barracks rooms comes back to my perception.

I certainly can't say I don't love their horned skull logo that I put on the hood of my car, but for the most part they are strong rock music. I like some of their songs but the theatrics are a little too predictable. The performance is strong but lacking in communication and sometimes energy.
