The Naturecast podcast is a series of high-definition videos featuring nature being nature.
Spring has come early to the Clear Creek valley near Golden Colorado. These are some of the first blooms. A willow tree’s golden blooms are in stark contrast to a luminous sky that only seems to be that blue in the early spring. It is as if a switch has been thrown and now the world can return to color again after the monotones of winter.
I’ve been editing like crazy to launch CleverMedia’s newest podcast, MacMost.
Since we are all passionate about Apple it made sense for us to do a show about Macs. And geeks that we are, we also have a lot of inside Mac knowledge to share.
We feature Apple oriented news, tips and tutorials, answer questions and even have a contest in each episode.
In addition ,we post all of our video tutorials as stand alone videos for future reference. The Show is aimed at non-geeks who want to learn how to get the most from their Mac, iPod, AppleTV, iPhone or other Apple oriented products.
Check out the Website at http://macmost.com/ And if you can, subscribe to the podcast via iTunes and write us a review. You can also watch the show on youtube and blip.tv.
I know some of you you are still PC users, but there is even some content for you, especially if you have an iPod or the new AppleTV.
Please tell your friends about the show. Also feel free to let me know what you think and give me suggestions on how to improve the show or what you would like to see.

How do I swing?
I’mÂ a mcLaren Fan in F1
and a MG Lola fan in ALMS
People often ask the question but don’t want to hear the answer. you don’t want to hear that I’ve got this irksome skin rash that is driving me fucking nuts andÂ in between trying to scratch that spot on my back that I cant reach I’m typing this blogÂ entry in my boxer shorts. You don’t want to hear that I went to the dentist yesterday for a routine cleaning and that they decided to get Guantanomo on my ass. Why do they say “you may feel some discomfort” why don’t they just have some dude just come in and punch you in the jaw, the result is the same.
So how am I? Just fine, and you?
Secondly, Am I sooo wrong not to be in the mood to go to a St. Patty’s party tonight. Friday is the last night of the week I want to go out. First of all It’s an amateur night, both cops and drunks are on the roads. I don’t drink and drive so that means I going to a party and watch people drink and have fun until it’s way past my bedtime and then I’ve got to try to drag my wife home before she’s ready.
Sorry, but I’d much rather sit here and scratch, drink a glass of Cab, and type at the machine. Woot!
As VJ Shojo, I have several ventures underway in Second Life. I started in Second Life by building a small bar to promote the Podcast Salad Podcast. Soon I started building a Japanese tea house and garden.Â built a racecar and then Shojo Racing was born and I am now partnered with Exclusive Motorcars a SL car company. Then I built a house boat and a yacht and Shojo Shipworks was born. Through discussion with my friend Robina in SL I was convinced to turn the Podcast Salad Bar and Grill into a Llive music perfomance space that became the Stage at Bermuda.
Anyway to make a long story shorter, After a month of operation, I’m losing money on the venture. It was my original intent to have a manager run the place and keep acts booked and events scheduled for every night. But after a technical breakdown during a show my partner and manager decided she couldn’t deal with the personalities and the time involved with making the club sucessful.
So now I’m stuck with the club and without having the time or effort to make this thing an at least break even proposition. I’d like to keep the venue open But I’m at a loss for profitable ideas. Any comments are welcome.
