FCC Song: Fuck you all so very much
Well the term blogcasting has already been coined by the blog spot people, but blogcasting should be the term used when you create podcasts from blog posts using speech recognition technology such as what these guys from Talkr have done. I had thought about this quite a while ago. I was planning on writing a program to parse a blog’s RSS feed and use The Festival Speech Synthesis System (unix/linux) to convert the text to audio, but being the procrastinator that I am the project never got done. This seems like an amazing untapped area of podcasting. I found about Talkr over at Tipmonkies.
This is another reason why I don’t buy commercial music. It is confirmed, the music industry is the scum of the earth, right up there with lawyers and drug dealers.

Looks like fox is podcasting your favorite TV shows. Maybe not your favorite, but somebody’s. I have not listened to one yet, but I will listen to one. Wonder if the commercials are played or cut out, i’m imagineing they are still in. I’m downloading arrested development right now. Now if they would just take a chance like the Sci-Fi channel did with Battlestar Gallactica and provide downloads of video, we’d be getting somewhere. The landscape is changing, time for the “old media” to evolve a bit.
