Gen Con 2014

Gen Con 2014

If you have never been to a Gen Con, Lumpy will spend almost one-quarter of the show playing some of the artists who performed there and talking about his experience. Lumpy had never attended a Gen Con before. There are a few things he knows for sure:

  • He had a great time
  • He got many interviews
  • He learned much
  • He has every intention of returning in 2015

We opened the show with a few tracks from some of the artists who were at Gen Con:

Both of the artists above are members of The FuMP.   Thanks to Through Gamer Goggles Lumpy got to attend Gen Con and that is what this edited news edition is all about:

Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid, The LumpCast has Returned…..

Yes, some things may best be left dead, but The Ol’ LumpCast is not one of them.  Be sure and tune in weekly on Fridays at 10 PM for the podcast that started it all for Lumpy.

I know it has been a long while and the LumpCast has been more or less defunct. Now that Meshelly and I have our groove down on Indie Soup and others at Indie Nation are learning to do more, it is time to bring it back from the dead. Join me as I spin all kinds of music but lean more to house and dance.

Warning: This podcast contains material that may be offensive to some and may be considered NSFW (not safe for work).  If you feel you may be offended, please exercise your freedom of choice and do not listen as I exercise my freedom of speech.

Personally, I am not really a huge fan of hip hop.  I appreciate it, listen to it, and feel it is the poetry of today but would more likely listen to rock, jazz or blues. Maybe my years are showing?

However, there are exceptions.  MC Lars and Weerd Science are always  on my Sansa Clip. I am serious when I say this… that status only applies to about a half dozen artists.  They are among my favorites.  While not my normal cup of tunage, I love this stuff!

MC Lars is an exception with good reason.  He is an exceptional master of words, a true DIY artist and, based on some personal conversation with him at Vans Warped Tour, a totally awesome human being.  It is with great pleasure that I read his Facebook wall and was informed that he will be performing at SXSW this year.  Kudos and congrats to MC Lars!


2011.10.28 – Boz and Lumpy – Mostly Halloween


Spooky, Kooky and Without Our Right Hand Man

Tonight’s podcast is a live show which originally streamed on 28 October, 2011. It was co-hosted by Boz and Lumpy. Tonight’s show is mostly Halloween themed.

We must caution the listeners that this show is both very long and very much not safe for work, small children and nuns.  It contains politically incorrect material and material sexual in nature… that and Georgie punches Boz.

Regrettably, Meshelly was busy getting tested for her potential hand transplant. Please give us a hand giving Meshelly a hand.

For those of you who do not know, Meshelly is our station’s programing director. Lumpy often calls her his “right hand man” which is an inside joke. You see, Michelle is not a man and she has no right hand. Currently, she is in line for a hand transplant. However, she needs to raise about 55K in order to fund this miracle of modern science. If is not a feat she shall achieve single handedly so please, get on over to Give Meshelly a Hand and help us out.

Today is Video Game Day

Today is, according to Brownilocks, video game day.  While some sources also claim July 8 is video game day, let us just celebrate it today.  When I think of video games, I still think of my old Atari 2600.  I think it has to do something with that first love thing.  I also remember the era very, very well for my family owned a video store. It was an era of new addiction.  To those of us who lived it, there is no doubt why the controller was called a “joy stick”.
