Mikel O.D. - mostpeoplearedjs's Podcast - mostpeoplearedjs's Podcast

So much time has passed since my last podcast I’ll bet you might think you thought I podfaded. Well, you can set aside your fears as Most People Are DJs may rust but it will never fade away! This is a catch up episode to let you know all the activity I have been up the last few months, including comic conventions like C2E2 and Motor City Comic Con and Movement, Detroit’s electronic music festival. Some of the celebrities (at least in my book) I met along the way included cosplay superstar, Yaya Han, Katie Cassidy from Arrow and hipster rap artist, Riff Raff Pics.
In the beginning of the show, I also talk about the positive and negative aspects to doing an email interview. The end part of this episode I play some clips from my interview with Marc Evan Johnson and Ben Blacker from the Thrilling Adventure Hour Podcast. They talk about how Marc became the voice of Sparks Nevada and what it’s like being backstage at a TAH show. Besides the podcast, Marc and Ben are working on a hundred different things, Marc did a pilot called Fatrick and Ben is doing a run on Marvels Thunderbolts.You can read my post from the interview at Spoiler Free Movie Sleuth. If you are at San Diego Comic Con you can catch the TAH crew performing and hanging out.
The music from the show is taken from 8-Bit Operators “Enjoy the Science: A Tribute to Depeche Mode.” A new 8-Bit collection of Depeche Mode covers that are brilliant and interesting takes on 15 of Depeche Mode’s best songs.

On the episode I preview C2E2, the Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo, a convention that brings the best of pop culture to downtown Chicago. A convention that is packed with so many cool things and people this will make the 3rd year I will travel from Detroit to experience the show.

On the the podcast I'll cover the panels and others things I am checking out at the show. You can read my full blog post preview for C2E2 over at The Movie Slueth, a great movie review site I am conributing to. Also on this episode I am playing music from Tunde Olaniran, an electro hip hop artist that I've played before and interviewed. The song "The Internet" features James Linck and is one of the highlights of Tunde's amazing live show.

On this episode I play music from 2 DJs and talk some TV. Heavygrinder is a DJ that plays a mix of metal and electro. Her sets are some of the most energetic that I have experienced. The song I feature from her is a recently released remix she did of NIN's "Into the Void." If you want to keep up with Heavygrinder you should like her facebook page. Tokimosta is a DJ that mixes soul, hip hop and even some jazz into her music. She has remixed artists like Hundred Waters and release her last record on Skrillex's record label.

This past year and into 2014 has been a very good year for TV shows. The two shows that I've been most into are HBO's True Detective and Netflix's House of Cards. Both of these shows feature well constructed characters and plots that keep you guessing what is going to happen next. The shows are so good that I want more of an experience than just watching the shows so I am checking out show related podcast. Bald Move does a great job covering House of Cards and for True Detective I am listening to True Detective Truth Squad. Both of these shows can be found on iTunes podcasts.

For even more TV talk I feature a few comic book friends of mine talking about their favorite TV shows. My comic book friends include: Dirk Manning, Jordon Trovillion, Ryan Stegman and Jim Towe.

For this episode I have developed a way of giving you the excellant things I've come across using as many forms of media as I can get my hands into. First there is the video that you see above which is a quick 5 minute youtbe video using my pictures and graphics about the topics I cover. Then, there's the podcast where I spend a bit more time on each subject giving more details. My first topic is the short film ABE which I found on the short of the week website. Then I move into music with 12th Planet a DJ that continues to expand and redefine dubstep. His latest smogcity mixtape gives you a good tatse of his music along with others on his Smog label. The Mast is a duo from Brooklyn that play etherael pop music. The track I play is "Nuclear Dragon" from the January CMJ mixtape. Lastly, Comixology has their site for indie comic people to submit their comics, which is a great way to publish comics independently. If you have the time try watching the youtube video and listening to the podcast. If you want to keep up with all things I am working on "like" the MPAD Media page on facebook.

I’m in the middle of diving into Macland while one of feet still remains firmly planted in PCville so please bear with me a little as I work my through of getting to a podcast format I’m truly happy with. This episode I am primarily trying to use my Macbook and IMovie, however, most of the material was produced on my HP laptop. Many of the photos you see in this 6 minute episode are pictures I’ve taken with my camera or images that I’ve edited for the show. On this episode I profile the electronic music duo Odesza. Be sure to check their website out where you can download their music for free. Next I cover the film short, The Flying Man, an astonishing little movie that stands on its own but also makes a great first chapter of what could be (and hopefully will be) a longer movie. The short looks great and is absolutely, devastatingly shocking even on the small screen.Featuring a short film will be continue to be a part of MPAD whenever I can fit it in.

My last topic, ISSUU , is a subject I’ve covered before, but I want to make sure people check the ISSUU website and app out because there is so much great content to get at ISSUU. Each MPAD episode I am going to feature a picture I’ve taken and give you the story behind it. This photo was taken at the same show I saw Odesza play and it’s 2 of the more interesting people I saw in the crowd. I like to think of them as “Hipster Heroes.” As always you can email your questions or comments to mostpeopelaredjs@gmail.com.

Here are a few great things that came together this week:

Back when I was reviewing magazine reading apps I mentioned how much I liked Issuu and wished it had an app. Well it looks like sometimes wishes do come true because Issuu just released their app for Andriod available at Google Play. Like the Issuu website the app houses thousands of digital magazines in an easy to use, appealing interface. I've used it on my Nook and I really like what I am seeing. You can read more aout the app here.

My first article for Real Detroit Weekly was printed on paper and online this week. I profiled hip hop artist Charlie Beans who is hosting an album release show for his new album How Dare You. The album is available for free download at bandcamp, you should check it out. 

One of my favorite new bands, I Break Horses, from Sweden announced their first headlining tour of North America. With a stellar, synth pop sound and captivating vocals, their track "Faith" has quickly become an avid listen for me. 

I BREAK HORSES tour dates:

04/14 Philadelphia, PA Johnny Brenda's
04/15 Washington DC DC9 04/17 New York, NY Mercury Lounge
04/18 Brooklyn, NY Rough Trade
04/19 Allston, MA Great Scott

Yes, as you can see I am still podcasting, as Mr. Young once put it, “Rust Never Sleeps.” Podcasting for me at this point is like using treadmill. It’s something I like doing and it’s good for me but it’s also easy for me to find a dozen others things to keep me away from doing it. Despite the distractions I am going to podcast more often this year, starting with this episodes recap of 2013 and look ahead to 2014. I’ve got 3 great songs smashed in the episode, 2 electronic songs and one hip hop cover of a Lykki Li track. If you have any feedback for me you can email me at mostpeoplearedjs@gmail.com. . You can keep up with me by liking my MPAD Media page on facebook.

Music:
Cazzette – “Heroes” from Spark Sountrack
Eddie Logix – Left of Center w/Charlie Beans and S. Kaiser
Germany, Germany – Run w/Brother Tiger

After another lengthy hiatus I'm back with an episode recorded from a hotel room in Kalamazoo, MI. This episode has a lot stuff I've been meaning to get to and I've finally found the time to record it. I've got music from three great indie pop bands including the Dismemberment Plan and Bear Mountain who I also interviewed last month. I also play a track from Los Campesinos! who have a new album out. I've been reading magazines on my tablet and I let you know what I think about that, (you can read my blog post here). My last section is an interview with Dubstep/Electronic music DJ Nit Grit.

I’m going back to an audio format for this episode because I had the itch to say a few words. Those words included some of the things I have been up to like seeing Elephant Stone, I even thrown in a track from them, and going to Zombie Con. I talk to Alex Winter about his documentary Downloaded which you can see now on iTunes and Amazon. I haven’t caught it yet but I plan to watch it very soon and let you know what I think. I also talk with SP Burke about his webcomic “Oh Goodie”. In between I fill the space with a new artist Parentz from Berkeley, CA. My good friend, indie hip hop fiend, Matt Schwartz has a new album coming out soon called “UppersDowners” and I play his new track “Pink Lighters and Red Cups.” I finish the show by talking about Peter Hook from New Order and his new tour with the Light where he covers the first 2 New Order albums. I hope to find some time to do this more often again as I had a lot of fun putting this episode together.
