Our next news story of the night comes from a, article at Torrentfreak.com

Download a Copy of the Pirate Bay

The Pirate Bay has released copies of its site for download recently, and due to new technology, the file is only 90 megabytes. If you would like to download this file, feel free to head over to thepiratebay.se.  The Pirate Bay has recently announced that they will stop hosting torrents. Instead, they will be using “Magnet Links” which will require minimal bandwidth to run a proxy site.

Our next song was by Acid42 feat. Yu:Mi

We read another article from Torrentfreak.com

Why Pirate Bay Changed Their Name from .org to .se

The Pirate Bay Moves to .SE Domain To Prevent Domain Seizure After the court case against the founders of The Pirate Bay concluded, the operators quickly moved the site to change from .ORG to the .SE just to prevent the US authorities seizing the domain. This was a serious risk just because the court case has completed. They did find the owners of the Pirate Bay to, be guilty of certain things. Earlier today, Sweden’s Supreme Court announced its decision not to grant leave to appeal in the long-running Pirate Bay criminal trial. This means that the prison sentences and fines against the defendants are now final.

The Pirate Bay website itself, however, wasn’t part of the trial and will remain operational as normal. That is, unless the U.S. government chooses to intervene.

The Pirate Bay avoids walking the plank, for now

Can The Pirate Bay exist without torrents? The future of the Swedish torrent tracker arrives on the last day of February, which is when the site administrators have announced that they will be phasing out torrents in favor of magnet links. Although it sounds like The Pirate Bay will be closing, the move is, designed to ensure that the site continues on.

We ended with this song Butterfly Effect by Lamb-Sounda Alien Spy Remix Sounda.

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.

Lestat - Vision of Sorrows

Vision of Sorrows Album Cover

While this great goth band is out in California starting their 2011 tour with a handful of dates there, I figured it would only make sense to give you a sample of what you will hear when going to see them at any of the clubs they play and also to give you a little insiders look at the road rules/plains, trains and automobiles adventure the band had in just getting out there to kick it off. A look at the facebook page of singer Evan Nave (Originally known as – Razz) has a nice pictorial of the sites and scenery along the treacherous drive to San Jose where the tour begins. After a long hiatus, this innovative group reformed in the summer of 2010 and set out on a newly heightened mission. This time to take things as far as they can possibly go and on this my friends – Indienation.fm has the pleasured honor in giving you the play by play of the rise of Lestat from it’s own proverbial ashes. The most important changes in the group from their inception in 1989 are the acquisition of an organic drummer versus a drum machine. In other words folks – there’s a real human being behind the drum stand in former Disown drummer – Scott. Not to take anything away from how this gifted band sounded before. It’s just nothing compares to the raw sound of real percussion. Also different this time around is the acquisition of former PKS Bass player – War. Both I presume are in place of the absent founding member – Jess. Along with Evan to round off the line up are founding members Tim Smith serving as the nocturnal pulse on the keyboards and guitar temptress Susan Zsuska. Down boy! Down!

The current campaign is also in effort to pump up the long anticipated release of the bands’ new album and 4rth release entitled ‘Arisen’ . Along with new music will be a remix of the the Siousxie & the Banshees classic ‘Red light’ which originally appeared on the inaugural ‘Theatre of the Vampires’ album. The title track ‘Arisen’ can be seen and heard live on You Tube and is highly recommended to any and all of you who love the Goth Sound. Keep an eye out for more features on Lestat and other great picks of the day. For complete news, concert dates and venue locations, history and all propoganda visit the Lestat website posted in the links below.

Housy Grooves – Serious Old Skewl LIVE Groove

Play

I think this is one of my favorite long jams of all times. Ladies and Gentlemen, may I share with you “Housy Grooves”, the marvelous work of Dr. H. P. Winkler. There are a number of kewl things about it. First being is that it is free and available at The Internet Archive. Heck, they even have embed code for you to put a player up with it. Now how kewl is that?

Second, is that it is part of the new media by being on the Stromklang Net Label. Now don’t get me wrong, CDs have their place, for me, if they are signed by the artists. Otherwise, they are just becoming coasters, marred with concentric rings of coffee and coke.
