Puppet Show 2

Yo. You're quarantined. It sucks. Do you need a laugh? Try this. Recorded in November of 2017 and never released. The incredibly absurd idea of doing a puppet show on the radio. Starring Seth Adam Kallick, Naomi Kline Karzai, Morgan Hamilton, Nat Raum, Shodekeh Talifero, and me Nate Yielding. I still haven't figured out a permanent home for the show but Seth has wanted me to put this out forever.

I know most of you probably dislike long statuses. Read below only if you are a fan of the Bitter Scenester.

Do people like the Bitter Scenester podcast? Is it worth continuing? If you haven't noticed the Bitter Scenester has been on hiatus since last summer and before that the production has slowed down considerably. This was due to significant financial difficulties leading me to acquire another job in addition to the one I already had and as a result I have very little excess time.
When I first started The Bitter Scenester I had never listened to a podcast before. Now I listen to podcasts all the time. I have come to realize that most podcasts are run by teams of people and that there is usually some compensation for their efforts. The Bitter Scenester has been run exclusively by me with some help for promotion by my friend Robbie Horowitz. We have not received any compensation for any episodes. On the contrary it actually costs a significant amount of money to run the podcast. It costs a yearly fee for the soundcloud storage, the feedity RSS feed, money to promote each status to advertise the episodes, and also my time.
This is all coming to a head right now because I have received an email from soundcloud stating that my yearly storage fee will renew on May 14th. I can not afford to pay this. I also do not want to keep a past creative project on the back burner indefinitely while it is costing me money. So that is why I am seeking your input. If The Bitter Scenester is worth saving then please comment so. If not, then please say that as well. Does the city need another voice to promote local music? It seems to me that Lydia Wooleaver, Sam Sessa, and WTMD are doing a pretty good job and it is actually their jobs to do so. If I am to continue then I will have to start a go fund me or patreon or something like it to cover my costs. Thank you for reading this and have a good day!

Hey folks! I haven't put out any episodes in a little while as you may have noticed and I'm sorry for that. Times have been a little tough and some of my equipment I use to record broke but I have fixed most of my equipment issues and have just been hired at a new job so anyway the short and skinny of it is that I'm going to put out a new episode soon. It's been to long. I'm excited for it and you should be too. Oh also in sorry for the last episode not having any of my vocals on it. That was more equipment failure. I have nothing more to say. Have a blessed day, bitches!

Aural Archipelago

Beluk is a yodeling-like vocal tradition found in only a few pockets of West Java. Just like some yodeling traditions, beluk originated as a form of long-distance communication between Sundanese farmers working in the rice fields of highland West Java. While it developed into a narrative form connected with religious texts in many areas, in the village of Cikeusal that original form, beluk sawah, wordless and intense, has been maintained until the present day.

Listen to the high-def recording and learn more about this tradition at the new Aural Archipelago post here: http://www.auralarchipelago.com/auralarchipelago/beluk.
