Christmas Music, One Last Show
Some material may not be considered safe for work (NSFW), children and arachnids over 3 feet tall
Cleta, Knowles217, OmniDragon and Lumpy were still up for spinning some Christmas music. This one, as well is about the music and not talk. We didn’t cover any news. We simply spun Christmas music and told you what we played. We hope you all had a great holiday season last year and hope you are starting off having a great new year. Enjoy the last in the Podcast of Christmas here at indienation.fm
Starting it off with and featuring Christmas Music, Wish Background from Kevin MacLeod. After the nice 20 minute background track, we went to our first story: This week we will discuss Go Daddy, SOPA, Google Googles and more.
Boycott Makes Go Daddy Change It’s Stance on SOPA
After many people complained and many transferred domains away from the company, ARS Technica received a statement from Go Daddy. According to the post at ARS, part of it read:
“Fighting online piracy is of the utmost importance, which is why Go Daddy has been working to help craft revisions to this legislation—but we can clearly do better,” Warren Adelman, Go Daddy’s newly appointed CEO, said. “It’s very important that all Internet stakeholders work together on this. Getting it right is worth the wait. Go Daddy will support it when and if the Internet community supports it.”
In a related post, CNET reports that 21,000 domains were transferred from Go Daddy in a single day. The same article also states that the next loss, due to how many still transfered in, was only 1,020 domains.

Did HP “Mitigate” the Printer Flaw?
Remember late in November when we debated whether the HP laser jet printer flaw was real? According to a post CNET Security, HP has “Mitigated” the flaw. As the article states, mitigate means “to make less severe or painful” As we speculated back in November, the article states a lawsuit was filed against HP claiming that they were aware of the flaw and released the product anyhow. HP is still stating that there are no reports of the printers being exploited in the wild.

Hi Tech Eye Wear from Google
They will be branded “Google Goggles”… CNET has a story about some spectacular spectacles reportedly in the works by Google. They would enhance your view with information about your location and display it in 3D . The article also mentions that Apple is working on a similar product. The story, however, is speculative for they are only rumors and Google won’t comment on rumors.

What Did You Do on Christmas? We did another “Podcast of Christmas !”
For Lumpy, Christmas is for the children. My family celebrates it on Christmas Eve and I spent most of my Christmas Day organizing Christmas Music. This podcast originally streamed live on Christmas Day, it is Christmas Music with only a tad bit of chat in between. Merry Christmas and enjoy: Special kudos and thanks to Cleta and Knowles217 for joining me on this holiday special. Here is a list of what we played in three and half hour show.
An Interview with Corrisa Bragg
Recently, I got a chance to interview my friend Corissa Bragg a local singer/songwriter and actress. We chatted a bit about acting, music, her upcoming journey to India, and her last hurrah here in Cleveland before the big trip.
Bragg recently stared in “My City” a short that follows a young musician on a course of self discovery as she decides what to do with her future. The film was written and directed by local filmmaker Kyle Retter and was shot in partnership with Shoot It Already Films this summer. It will be premiering at Arts in Collinwood December 28, 2011, at 7 o’clock and admission is free. Come early for some great food, drink, and a chance to hang out with the cast and crew, doors open at 6.
One of our staff thought this was the best music news of the year.. Cleta may be right. Merry Christmas All!
Sean Quigley – Little Drummer Boy
Locust though it might be this one…
Rebecca Black – Friday – Official Music Video
Personally I liked this one…
Reindeer – Ein Astronaut & The YouTube Musicians Christmas Collab Club

Podcasts of Christmas “Twas the Night Before Christmas” and “Eli’s Soap Box Theater”
For this Podcast of Christmas, Rob and Lump decided to just stick with spoken word. After all, what is Christmas with out hearing the timeless “Twas the Night Before Christmas”.
We also decided to go with something new, “Ruth the Christmas Chicken” by Eli Fletcher.
While we agree that Christmas is a holiday that should be mostly for children, adults need to have some fun with it as well. This podcast is NOT intended for children. It is NSFW which means Not Safe For Work. We are going to be playing adult music and humor music. If you are offended by such material, go back to church and pray for our souls.
Greetings Indie Nation listeners,
Yes, it is that time of the year again where the malls and stores will deafen you with the same thirty versions of six Christmas songs. To be honest, Lumpy feels more like Scrooge this year and is having a hard time getting in the spirit. The reasons are pretty simple:
- They started the Christmas music before Halloween
- They are playing the same music year after year in the same order
- I don’t have a job
- They are setting up multiple Santas at the exits, asking money for multiple causes… man the kids are going to be confused… it is worse than all the Krishna’s at the airport
- Last and largest, THERE IS NO SNOW
I am busy digging out my always over-stuffed inbox. As a station manager, I reckon that is a nice problem to have… I know that more than a few of you dig every time we play Amber Ojeda. She has a gig tomorrow and I thought a quick post was in order. I am just going to quote the email:
On 11.11.11 I will be performing an ALL AGES SHOW along side some of my favorite musician’s Mic Holden & Bryce Wilson. This is my first time at The Witz End so come out and show this new venue some love with me!!
Also performing is the vibrant Adam Stern who is releasing his sophomore album “Cosmicology”. I can’t say enough about this performer. Not only is he a good friend, but a brilliant musician and songwriter whom I respect very much.
I have a feeling this is going to be a very special evening. I hope you can make it out to share it with us.
The doors open at 7 PM and Amber goes on at 9 PM. Admission is 10 dollars. Again it is at
