(no subject)

Today I received my shiny little mp3 player that I have been considering buying for ages. It is shiny and delightful.
Anyway, I decided to have a look at this Podcasting thing that Warren Ellis has mentioned rather a lot on his blog (and being a fanboy I have to do what the mighty leader says).

So far, I've added few feeds, but nothing too interesting, until I found the metal folder on

There's a 2 hour metal radio show in there that I'm saving for my trip home, but I also stumbled upon the feed from this site:

It's "Polm's Metal Rampage", a low tech, 25 minute long show by a guy called Polm from Delft - and it's marvellous. I'm 4 tracks in and he's played some interesting tracks, but most of all he is great - he sounds like Strongbad with a slightly more dutch accent. He's only done one so far, but he's added to my podcast list and hopefully he'll have something new up soon.

Listen. Hear. Be amused by his banter. Be rather surprised at the change in pace from the first to second track.

This Podcast thing might be a good thing...
