Welcome to the First Episode of The Whatever and Whenever PodCast
Welcome to episode 001 of the Whatever and Whenever PodCast, actually, when we recorded this episode, we had not even thought of a name for it. Meshelly and Lumpy just knew that we wanted to add another show to the line up at Indie Nation. We wanted to do news and music… and we wanted to simply use it to hijack the stream when nothing else was scheduled. We also knew we wanted something that would be fun and safe for work. Our thought was something like a drive time show, mostly music, some fun banter and some recent news.
So on the mics we go, fired up idjc (Internet DJ Console) and off into cyberspace we blasted. And remember, you will never know when a new show may stream live and, in the end, time-shifted or live, it is hopefully great content.
We opened the show with Liquor & Wine from Polina Kourakina.

Another fun filled episode of friday Night FnG. Just us goofing around. By now Lumpy is convinced that we are destined for Hell with all this heavy rock we’ve been playing. Boz can’t seem to get his head together as he fumbles his words and forgets all to often where his place is in the show – almost like as if he just woke up! lol We always like to give shout outs to all of you who follow us from all over the globe and in chat. Give us a holler and let us know you are hearing us and what you think! firstname.lastname@example.org Lumpy@indienation.fm
For this week’s episode of the LumpCast, I thought I would kick back to some of the musicians we have had the pleasure to get to know in the recent past, some locally from Cleveland and others from elsewhere.
I am playing short sets and spotlights for this show. Many of them are recordings I actually did with a Zoom H2 Portable Recording unit when these musicians played live at local clubs in the Cleveland, Ohio area.
Listen in as Cleta, Omnidragon, Boz and Lumpy spin and eclectic mix of indie music.
In this week’s live news show we discuss the death of Kim Jong il, Windows 8’s picture log in, MIT‘s sharing of course software, Isaac Newton‘s notes, BT sues Google, a camera that can capture photons in motion and much more. Join us for a three hour show featuring news and the best independent music on the planet.
As usual, we started with some music:
- We started with a few from Brother Love
- Soccer Girl
- From Alice Cooper
- I’m Eighteen
- No More Mr Nice Guy
- From Chance
- Finger on the Trigger Makes a Man Feel Bigger
Band Width Hog Myth Debunked
A study done by DSL Reports seems to beating up a falacy. TechDirt reports that the myth of the “bandwidth hog” has long been used as a justification for band width caps. To be brief and short, the study can find no data to back the ISPs claims. The article at TechDirt also states that, since many ISPs will not provide any data to back their claims, they are and have been well aware of the fact that the bandwidth hog is not disruptive.
Back to the queue for more music:
- My Atari by Sudden Death (actually Devo Spice)
- Platform Wars by Devo Spice featuring The Great Luke Ski and Dual Core
- From Jonathan Coulton
- Creepy Doll
- At Work Now and Code Monkey
Google Chrome Reported to be the Most Secure Browser
The research was funded by Google, which might make any reasonable person suspicious of its conclusions. Accuvant insists that Google gave it “a clear directive to provide readers with an objective understanding of relative browser security” and that the conclusions in the paper “are those of Accuvant Labs, based on our independent data collection.” Accuvant also made the supporting data available as a separate download so that it can be scrutinized by other researchers.
The article states that the 102 page report is very fair and the lab stated it will update the report as the browsers continue to develop.
Quoting the OpenDNS web site:
DNSCrypt has the potential to be the most impactful advancement in Internet security since SSL, significantly improving every single Internet user’s online security and privacy.

More Woes for Adobe and Flash
CNET is reporting the the troubles for Flash just won’t seem to stop. The Adobe company’s Reader program has vulnerabilities. Similar problems are reported in Flash Player In both the Mac and Window versions the program can be hacked to crash and the culprit can gain control of the computer.
The article states that it gets around the Internet Explorer sandbox on windows machines. It also states that it is unknown how or if it works in other browser. While some versions of Adobe products have fixed the problem, others are not expected to be mended for about a month. The article suggest using alternative products.
New Windows Defender Runs Outside Windows
CNET reports via an instructional article that the newer version of Windows Defender will be able to run outside of the Windows OS. The malware protection software will be available in both 32 and 64 bit versions and could be run off a thumbdrive, CD, or DVD. The program is under 300 MB in size and also offers the option of saving it as an ISO file vs. an executable program.
A few more songs:
- From Pale Hollow
- Rolling Through The Days
- Satisfied Mind
“Native Client” Showcased at Google
After hearing about this one, I asked “how can one not be impressed”. According to a post at CNET, Google had unveiled a project it has kept under wraps for three years. Native Client, as it is called, is claimed to improve browser performance by by two to ten times.
To demonstrate this, they played games in a browser tab… games normally played in a console. Those who viewed the demonstration claim that the games moved smoothly and performed well. Native Client, also dubbed NaCl, is open source.
The goals, according to the Google spokesperson are to bring more to the web and security. They state they are in the “prove it” state of the technology. The review at CNET is more extensive and has a very impressive video of the platform in action. Native Client is to go public in 2012.
This one was a last minute addition thanks to Cleta and Meshelly.
We closed it out with three more songs:
- From MC Lars
- What Is Hip-Hop?
- Distant Planet
- The Giving Tree

Mostly from Lumpy’s Live Archives
This is a show that originally streamed live on Friday, 4 November, 2011. We went with mostly material that Lump captured Live. We must caution the listeners that it originally streamed late at night and that the material should be considered “NSFW” or Not Safe for Work.
First of all, yeah, I am late. I am still recovering from my eight hour Wednesday night, Meshelly and I did our usual 6-8 PM EST broadcast of Indie Soup. Since the episode was favorites, we played a few by this artists of course. After Indie Soup, Zack Daggy, Jeff (aka isicfitv), and I ended up in a long an productive conversation. Keep checking back folks, there is going to be much kewlness happening here at Indie Nation.
Nonetheless, that is likely best another post. Now for the better-late-than-never Pick of the Day, Chance.
I remember the first time I checked out today’s pick of the day. I thought wow… I also remember the first time I played his material on what was then, The LumpCast. The listeners were like wow, kewl, and gimme more. Now I almost never play only one track by an artists on my shows. I like to give you a few tracks. In this sense, today’s pick was very tough for me. Chance is a hard artist to pick a favorite track. I would suggest you just check out more of his music at mynamewischance.com.
i have always said that the thing I enjoy most about podcasting and promoting indie music is the interaction between myself, listeners and artists. If you wanna keep me happy keep the emails and voice mails coming. Chance was no exception. We exchanged occasional emails for a bit and then he kinda got busy in the real world. In a very kewl way.
Shortly after we e-met, he had a personal first in his life. He became a father. What I enjoyed about it was watching him blog about it. Make sure you check out his blog when you go over to his site. Like many a musician, he writes some great stuff and tells some great stories. And yes, his newborn is growing quick but he is still blogging away and, yes, he still does music.
