Here is the text of the podcast.


Oh New Orleans
www.podtrac.com...


I am Conspiracy

I will hold you, and stroke you
I will touch you

Kiss your secret places

I will take your mind in my mouth
And promise you release

You will come with me
And I will show you soft, and shiny sparkly wondrous things

And give you hope

And you will follow

And I will suck the life from your bones.


Ya wanna get some?
Ya wanna wanna wanna wanna get some?

You fool.



I am conspiracy.

I will sit back and do nothing
Even though I am paid to act.

I will let your home - your family - and your community
Be destroyed
Even though I could stop it.

I will say your home is poisoned
And throw you out in the street
with nothin
but debt

Then - I will give you a cot - in a place with locked doors
And I will take your land for next to nothing
And say I'm bein' generous.

I will give your land to my friends
And let them profit
Where you did not.

I WILL take your home - -your guns - your job - your life
Then indenture you
And sell your labor to my friends at cut rates

And I WILL make everyone BELIEVE
that you are
Lucky to have the work.

I am CONspiracy

Ya gotta get some
Ya gotta gotta gotta gotta get some


I am Conspiracy

I will hold you, and stroke you
I will touch you

Kiss your secret places

I will take your mind in my mouth
And promise you release

You will come with me
And I will show you soft, and shiny sparkly wondrous things

And give you hope

And you will follow

And I will suck the life from your bones.


I am Conspiracy

Feel me
Feel my passage move the air

Know me
Like the hunting wolf knows the breathing earth
Fear me
Like the timid rabbit fears the shadow of the hawk

Know me - know me
Know me
By my shadows
And the ripples in the waters

Know too that without a hundred senses - you can't know me

I am your fantasy
Changeable
Seductive

I dance in the shadows
And hide in plain sight



Ya gotta get some
Ya gotta gotta gotta gotta get some
Ya gotta get some information
Ya gotta find out

Ya gotta get some
Ya gotta gotta gotta gotta get some
Ya gotta get some information
Ya gotta wake up

Ya gotta THINK.

Love It!

sofi, that is SO COOL!


I'm reminded of the "audio performance art" that was "hip" back in the sixties.

I really dig the way you use your voice in this -- it's real art.

My only nag is that the noise loop transitions are somewhat shrill, and I fear for those who may listen via headphones.


But definitely, you can add me to your rapidly growing list of fans.

Keep 'em coming, because we gotta get some.

Thanks guys. ...I am REALLY pumped about podcasts - it's playtime IMO, and a wonderful way to introduce complex ideas and information. The 20 second sound byte.
But it works!

Majic

Thanks for all your help - I might not have kept trying if you hadn't been there for me.

FYI all - I made a horrible podcast before this one - and (blush) posted it. Majic jumped in with some GREAT advice and info (below). ...I also got some freeware called "switch."

Majic Podcast Wisdom and Encouragement ...It helped me, and it might help others too...

"Sofi, you've GOT to get the sound quality fixed. Through the noise and distortion, I'm STILL digging your reading style, so it's like being taunted.

Speaking as someone who has also had mic problems in the past, here are some things to check:

Step 1. Lots of problems like this can occur at the jack where the mic is plugged in. Specifically:

a. Mono mic plug into a stereo jack, or a stereo mic plug into a mono jack.

b. Mic plugged into the “Line In” jack instead of the microphone jack.

c. Mic plug loose or not pushed in all the way.

Step 2. Other problems can occur because the gain or signal levels are too high or too low:

a. Check the volume control (if you use Windows) record settings to make sure the Microphone is selected, and that the mic volume is neither too high nor too low (adjust it and see what happens).

b. If possible, look at your waveforms in the recording software you're using.

1) If they're really huge and touch the top and bottom edges of the waveform display, your input level is too high, and is causing clipping.

2) If they're really small, the input signal is too weak (which is what it sounds like to me). That can be because the mic volume setting is too low, or any of the causes in Step 1 above -- or maybe something else.

You might be surprised at what is causing the problem. I know I usually am.

For what it's worth, I have personally encountered each of the possibilities in Step 1 myself. That's why I know about them.

If it is at all possible, I am really hoping you can solve the distortion problem so you can record this again and lay it on us in glorious hi-fi.

Your voice deserves no less."

A little piece of advice to all. Do NOT listen to Sofi's PODcasts in the dark on your own, late at night. Spooked the crap out of me.


Great stuff, Sofi, you have a lot of talent. Still trying to figure of your voice is scary, sexy, or both.

You Mean There's A Difference?

I'm thinking "both".

I love your PODcast. Creative and unusual. Artistic. While making dinner, I kept lilting. "Ya gotta, gotta, gotta get some..."

Agreed. Sexy/scary.

Also thanks for posting Majic's tips. I may need them.

Scary? Moi? ...The world is scary. I'm nice. And sweet.




Thanks guys. And you just keep lilting BH - "ya gotta, gotta, gotta get some - information" is a MUCH better message than most of what's out there. IMO.

Just remembered - someone said something about "cruel"...


WARNING: Do NOT listen to this podcast with headphones!!! ...There is a "storm" that just might blow your eardrums.


I use speakers - and forgot that some people prefer headphones. Sorry. I promise never, ever to do that again.
