One year older, one year wiser.

This concludes our 2010 broadcast season. We laughed, we cried, we did a lot of craughing. The world is this much closer to ending. Maybe. Nostradamus had fat kidneys and frightening social disorders. Unreliable narrator at best.

Without getting sentimental, we would like to express deep thanks to our listeners for continuing to tune in and request songs, as well as sticking with the show as it has evolved to the current iteration. We've had a lot of fun doing this every week. Heres to more exciting LAN Parties in the future.

Slay bells ring. Are you fidgeting?

A mythical, jolly fat man drives our economy for half the year. This is cause for much celebration and caroling. Or maybe just an indication that our economy is weak. Either way, enjoy our podcast filled with xmas cheer. Don't drink the eggnog at the company party this year. We spiked it with rophenol. Well, maybe DO drink it. Whatever. You've been warned.

The show went a wee bit longer than anticipated, but the extra few minutes are packed with logical atheistic propaganda for your ears to savor. Enjoy.

Final exam time: Who has the best show on WIDR named The LAN Party2.0?

If you answered the above question correctly, give yourself a pat on the back. You're in the right place.

Exam week can be hellish. DJ Gun Rack is living a technicolor nightmare. Harvey Mushman is enduring yet another barrage of criminal justice essays.
Given the circumstances this week, the show went amazingly well. No one was shot outside the studio, no DJs were outed as having false credentials, and the show didn't have a narrow focus on any one music style. Damn fine broadcasting.

Stay tuned for next week's show, the annual LAN Party Xmassacre!

Today's forecast: HEAVY!

Welp, that was a bit of a chuggy show. We kept the talking to a minimum in order to cram in all the requests. Hope you enjoy all them metal bands with the hair and the shredding!

Exciting news this week; there will be a living, breathing human in the studio from 2a.m. to 4a.m. All you night owls rejoice! This means no more overnight robot after we're finished. If you hear an awesome song, you can actually find out what it is now!

Archive.org was being a bit wonky. We can't do the typical stream feature but we can offer the opportunity to download the MP3!

December Burst. Oops, we mean First.

Ready for another Michigan December?

We lost one of the great ones this week. Leslie, you will be missed.

Aside from the initial "rotation rack gambit", the show went swimmingly. And by swimmingly we mean a frigid Decemeber swim in Lake Michigan.

Continuing the legacy

Another show in the bag. Sorry about the webstream being down. AGAIN. Enjoy playing Gran Turismo 5 if you have a PS3 and a predilection towards racing games. (Harvey Mushman certainly does). Also, enjoy your Thanksgiving bounty. We'll be serving lots of cream pies over here at casa de LAN Party.

Facebook page is up

We got off our computer-chair pre-formed asses and made a facebook page. The link is at the top of the page. We trust you can see it. Let us know if you like that location for the link, and if you like the FB page!

Solo show complete.

It sure is quiet in the studio without Gun Rack to scream soft words of encouragement at me whilst I run the board.
Many thanks to Jon in Ann Arbor for the calls. The caliber of requests is impressive, sir.

I'll keep this short; I have been suffering sleep deprivation all week. The pillow is calling my name.

Studio Echoes

Good 'ol DJ Gun Rack is down in South Carolina experimenting with new gun rack designs and accessorizing his duelly with some chrome and stack pipes. He may make it back in time to do the show but lets not count on it. Slow and stylish is his usual traveling velocity.

What this means is that Harvey will be in the studio all by his lonesome. A horrible tendency to procrastinate coupled with a not inconsiderable workload from school this semester will most likely lead to some great on-air gaffs. Remember that the request line can be used for threats, too.
Keep it tuned to WIDR and listen in tonight at midnight to hear what explodes, malfunctions, or acts furtive when asked piercing questions.

The LAN Party 2.0 back again with that sound to jam your ear tubes

our two hosts were getting downright avant in their music selection tonight. We hope you liked it; if you did not please contact your local congressman.

We typically post the stream and the download link to the MP3 every week but we feel that doing so would be cloggin' the intertubes. We keep our dump truck private.

Oh phooey!

We can't lie to you like that. The LAN Party 2.0 supports Net Neutrality. Back that dump truck right up and let us blast some byte-dumps your direction.

The Political Party

Election results are still streaming in, but you can stream us right now!!!

The good news about elections being over for a few more years is that you can go back to watching television without being inundated with political ads (for a few months anyway). The bad news is that increased television watching most likely decreases your LAN Party listening. I know Jeopardy is your favorite, but c'mon! Wheres the LAN Party love?

Enjoy the Political Party theme:

Anniversary Podcast!

Hard to believe, but this show marks the 1-year anniversary of our podcasts. We'd like to say we've grown. We've certainly (only recently) perfected the podcrafting session. LAN Party history gets a bit fuzzy over the years but this is quite a milestone for us. Stay alert and hyper-vigilant for the podcast's terrible-two period.
Honestly, halloween is just another day of the year where we're tempted to accelerate tooth decay with awful, calorie packed candy-beans. It happened to be the first week we decided to hit the “record” button and save the show for generations to come.

Without further ado, heres the show:

In the interest of the show's continued growth and evolution I have a question for you faithful listeners; Should the LAN Party create a facebook page? I flip-flop on the issue but if the fans want it, we can make it happen. Let us know. We love comments!

Fresh podcast for our listeners. And a haiku.

Mushman phones it in
DJ Gun Rack brings the pain
Without Truth, what's false?

It feels lonely without the cast of The Truth to keep us company while we're busy podcrafting but we'll eventually regrow our hard, calloused perspective that frightens strangers and creates a hostile environment.
We're continually finding more CDs in rotation that we enjoy and feel the need to share with you. This influx of music is quite welcome, as the studio pickin's were rather slim in years past. A solid block of Mushman's portion of the show was all music in rotation. Exciting.

We heard through the grapevine that the webstream is still down. We apologize for our interweb listeners. If we knew how to fix it, we would. Instead, we'll just yell at all of the Apple computers in the studio as if they're the problem (Well, they are a source of problems. Just not this time.)

Can you handle The Truth?

Tonight's show was all about The Truth.

Yes, The Truth's final show followed our show tonight. We look forward to the next person who will fill the 2-4am Wednesday morning slot. If you want to hear The Truth installments from the past, click here.
Those astute listeners will catch on to the pattern in tonight's show. Truth is bandied about like a Muskegon whore.

We enjoy these challenges; look for more "theme LAN Parties" in the future. It will help weed out those heckling requests. If you have any suggestions for themes, let us know. Theres a comment button down there somewhere.

Things we can endorse and things we can't.

First Fuck Glee!

I'm glad shitty covers of shitty songs have created the illusion that this shitty show is somehow competing with anything the Beatles did.

So for all your Glee fans, so many more things to come, a series of books based on this shit show, they were asked to sing at the white house oh and why not, 7 or 8 soundtrack CD's most of which are out already, and you know what The LAN Party won't play any of it, Sorry Fox, you could of kept Mole Tweaker in a good show but you canceled it.


In contrast ICP turns out to be Evangelical Christians.

I won't pretend that I'm surprised, when I saw the Miracle video one of my first thoughts was, how is this any different from Christian Rap. This is one of those lack luster victories, as I don't give a shit either way, it's far too late. Juggalos already are having kids and are spreading the word of their lord god apparently. I truly wonder how they feel about it, I would feel betrayed, but that's me and I feel betrayed when someone get's my order wrong at a restaurant. Which by the way does not happen very often because I enunciate.

Here is a very succinct review of the "Miracles" http://emptv.com/videos/understanding-insane-clown-posses-miracles

I would like to at this point say that if Science does somehow ruin the magick then how does knowing god did it all keep the veil?

I suppose if I was a juggalo I would use this opportunity to talk about how positive a message it has been all along and that it now has given me the tools to be inclusive and not worry about what religion someone is or why they might be trying to convert me.

Violent J turns to him and says, softly, "If we moved furniture for a living we'd have a bad back or bad knees. We think for a living. We try to create. We try to constantly think of cool ideas. And every once in a while there's a breakdown in the engine… I guess that's the price you pay."

Shaggy nods quietly. "I get anxiety and shit a lot," he says. "And reading that stuff people write about us… It hurts."

It's something special when by the end of the article I started to feel for them, I suppose I'm getting soft in my old age or perhaps it speaks to the writing of Jon Ronson.


Now something we fully endorse http://www.redlettermedia.com/
If you don't know what this is do your self a favor and click on Plinkett Reviews, they are all epic and very good, but the Star Wars reviews are by far the most extensive and engrossing. Instead of watching the prequels watch his reviews of them and you will never feel the need again, because he spells out with humor exactly why so many of us hated those movies even if we could not put it into words.

Stock up on your Haterade.

What a show!

We noticed that the volume on the call-line phone was turned down about halfway through the show. If you called for a request and we didn't answer, don't take it personal. We also may have gotten that Protomen request incorrect. The lesson your DJs took away from this is to WRITE THINGS DOWN.

We kept the talking to a minimum and the rawking to the MAX! Lots of new music, and we attempted to throw in a few spooky sounding songs in anticipation of the 2010 Halloween show. Crispin Hellion Glover was our G.A.P.E.S. artist of the week. That was spooky.

A sad bit of news; The Truth with Don Cheadle will be ending next week. I'm sure Don has an especially good show for us all. You can listen to us if for no other reason than to warm up for The Truth.

To help dry those tears and replace the sad emotions with confusion and revulsion, let us present this week's LAN Party2.0!

A show to last until October

October is almost upon us like an advancing stranger in the night. I have my bear-mace at the ready. The good news about October is that the end of the month will be the anniversary of our podcasts. I, for one, am pretty excited about having made it this far. I will have to do some checking but next week should be our 50th podcasted show. Crazy.

Enough babble! On to tonight's show!

This turned out to be quite a heavy show, with some unintended metal requests in addition to the metal songs I had already decided upon. This does not bother me in the slightest, although I will admit to the show feeling a bit "off" at times. Perhaps it was the absence of DJ Gun Rack. Yeah. Thats it. Blame him.

Thanks for your continued listenership,
Harvey Mushman.

Open your ears. The LAN Party is here.

Good show tonight. Had lots of good requests (The pug singing Batman made DJ Gun Rack exceptionally tingly in the pants). Mayhaps this caliber of requests means people are getting into the new format. We hope so anyway.
The Cloudkicker song was also amazingly good. The fact that its free is just extra icing on the cake.

Anyhoo, enjoy!

We shall blazon the city!

After much wringing of hands and time spent by the mailbox, the GAPES stickers have finally arrived. We literally have stacks and stacks of these things so if you're interested in getting some of this goodness just let us know.

GAPES, an acronym for Great Acting Persons Entertaining Sonically, was coined by MC Hut during his reign over the show. The GAPES segment of the show is when we play music from public figures not immediately known for their musical contributions. We have continued the tradition by bringing you all of these tunes for your consideration weekly. Last night's GAPES segment featured none other than Klaus Kinski, the heralded actor. His German spoken-word-over-music was, to our ears, brilliant. Listen to the show to hear that song, if for no other reason.

The stickers appear to be very durable and of high quality, suggesting that sticking them on an automobile or similar environmental circumstance is feasible without the sticker degrading quickly. The arrival of these stickers is going to force your humble DJ to wash his vehicle a little sooner than it's annual spraydown schedule calls for. Oh well. These will hold the rusty pieces together nicely.

The Sandy Vagina Show


A caller today threw vinegar at us, unfortunately this solidified our resolve that the update we recently installed was the right move. The show was getting slow, our cache was filling up with vats of dirty sponges. We decided to take the plunge, we inserted the dick sorry I mean disc into the slot and away we went. We are now faster and less Derivative and if you can't handle it then perhaps you should just throw out those Roger Waters Pink Floyd albums, or Perhaps Division Bell should be thrown out, because you're a purist and only Syd Barret will do. Well we enjoy all three periods of Pink Floyd so I feel like if you accept that this is Radio Evolution, not Radio Status Quo, then perhaps the current phase isn't for you, but it's better than staying the same for us.

While MC Minority Vote is visiting the upper peninsula for the next few days, I will have to figure out all this computer jazz myself.

You sharp ears out there will notice that DJ Gun Control and MC Minority Vote are still figuring out permanent names. Be prepared for more change, as we are fickle creatures.

The show was as good as ever, except that rather bad selection I made from the rotation rack. :shudder: My apologies.

Rushin' around

Hey all you Kalamazoo residents! Wanna check out an awesome band that has no resemblance to the current shite on top 40 radio?

Russian Circles
will be at The Strutt on thursday, Aug. 12th. Doors at 8pm, show at 9pm. The band was scheduled to play at The Strutt over the winter but were forced to cancel due to a pathetic excuse for a blizzard that made people scared of driving for no good reason. I may or may not still be upset about this.
Tickets are only 12 dollars if you buy them in person, 15 if you buy them online. Why the tickets cost more online is a mystery I will likely never solve without first getting really pissed off about the gall of most companies but I will admit that it's better than the nearly doubling of the ticket price that ticketmaster gouges out of it's customers (this doesnt make it acceptable, just better than ticketmaster).

Anyhoo, I shall be there with my ladyfriend and most likely a few other comrades. Yes, I do have a ladyfriend despite the myriad factors suggesting otherwise. My co-DJ may also attend if he has the time. I will try to convince him.

As always, the radio show will air on Tuesday night/Wednesday morning. This week will be installment #2 of our new format. I've finally been putting my new fancy computer to good use and made a few liners and promos for the show. Keep an ear out for these little gems interspersed with the music.

The War On Those Who Know Where the Drugs Are Continues

So just that were clear here, me posting the link below to the story actually violates the law because the content on the page is copyrighted and so me posting this link here is very much illegal.


Unfortunately my reason for posting this material here is for both humor and critique, which are both valid forms of free speech, under the constitution. I mean if we're still using that old rag.

So with that in mind here is the story with little additions by me in red.

New York, NY, United States (AHN) - U.S. authorities have shut down several websites for allegedly hosting pirated copies of Hollywood movies and TV shows. News of the seizures came just a week after the Obama administration announced an enforcement plan for dealing with theft of intellectual property. (Obama is in the pocket of the MPAA/RIAA, but then it's not really surprising since this is the same guy that as one of his first acts chose to extend the patriot act, which is an act that uses the fear of gnomes who may attack our homes as a means to conduct illegal search and seizure, to help warrant these fears, what a tidy cycle)

A Manhattan federal court issued warrants on behalf of the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York that demanded the closure of seven sites: TVshack.net, Movies-Links.tv, FilesPump.com, Now-Movies.com, PlanetMoviez.com, ThePirateCity.org and ZML.com. I don't know most of these sites, but I do know FilesPump.com was literally a specialized search engine that searched direct download sites for keywords you entered, I suppose google will be the next to get seized by the customs? Oh wait they are all in bed together trying to slow down internet for us ORDINARY WORKING PEOPLE, while speeding it up for us CORPORATE ASSHOLES.

Wan't to see these cross agency clusterfucks defending large corporations from the very much democratic critique of the entertainment industry? http://image.bayimg.com/iaoheaacc.jpg

The websites are listed to computers located domestically in Colorado, Florida, Illinois and internationally in the Czech Republic, Germany, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom. Oh so that's why customs were involved in electronic transactions, because we now control the whole world, I see.

U.S. Attorney Preet Corporate Shill Bharara said in a statement, "Criminal copyright infringement occurs on a massive scale over the Internet, and reportedly not factually results in billions of dollars in losses to the U.S. economy. Very good play up the economy dollar because we have such a shitty one at the moment due in no way to piracy but due completely to corporate greed That translates into lost jobs and real hardships for ordinary working people. I could see how ordinary working people who work over 50 hours a week or don't have a job at all might not want to spend 20 dollars on a shitty movie. That's why we took today's action. If your business model is movie piracy, your story will not have a happy ending." Isn't it weird that he sounds almost like the good guy instead of just a corporate shill with some really bad data? Here is the data that does not make it in to their calculations that come directly from the MPAA and RIAA which are no doubt independent in their opinion with no bias at all, anyhoo so billions lost on sales, if they assume that if people couldn't see these shitty things for free that they would just buy them based on summaries provided by the same industry that makes them. For example if I were to download a Metallica album which I would never do, but let's pretend that I felt that I wanted to give them another shot, so the RIAA would calculate that as a loss of a CD sale, unfortunately I listen to this album and find out that it is bile. OH NO, what now, oh wait it's not a problem, I delete the horrific bile off my computer and take a deep breath of relief. The important bit is that I wouldn't have bought the CD without a good listen first. We no longer live in the times of hey here's the single hey trust us the rest of the CD is just as good, and really it wouldn't be a problem if you could return opened movies and CD's to the store by simply saying, well it's a piece of shit and don't want to listen to it anymore. However that's not the business plan is it, the plan is to pretend that shitty movies with no replay value need to be made with massive budgets for hot actors and no writers and then we all like sheep have to go out and before we can word of mouth each other how bad it is, shit they already got our money and got away. Well technology has advanced beyond that, and shutting down sites that if anything help promote projects that would never even a single sale is like shooting your self in the foot. Just because they throw lot's of money at something does not mean it's good or legal or anything else.

Visitors landing on the aforementioned web pages will now be redirected to a page that notifies them the sites have been seized by the government. However, after the seizures were announced four of the sites appeared to still be working properly. This may have something to do with them not having any authority on the internet, I'm really baffled by this land grab the U.S. Government is trying to pull, they are trying to destroy Net Neutrality with one hand to help corporations and with the other they are treating the ordinary folks who are out of a job because they no longer need all those grips on the CGI shitfests like Transfuckingformers.

Bharara believes Belief is fun, unfortunately it also has no proof seizing the websites will have a deterrent effect among people who would watch movies illegally. I'm glad the illegal movie watching hasn't had an effect on hollywood making better movies, so I highly doubt it will work in reverse, but hey it's cute watching the government trying to flex it's muscle and better yet watching a democrat president buying into the lies. Good job lobbies, those common folks you so give a shit about sure appreciate being called criminals, I just know they will change their ways and buy up all them shitty seasons of 24 now.

I think what bothers me more than anything is how arrogant the industry is, it assumes it's product is worth what they say it's worth, but it rarely is, very rarely. I can count how many movies I saw in theaters this year, and this isn't because I saw them online illegaly it's because I was trully excited by the plot and the actors and the director and I went sometimes out of my way to see these movies. I can count them on the fingers of one hand, because one of the movies I saw ended up feeling like a let down, because the trailer portrayed it as something it wasn't, now how many fucking times does that happen? Again it does not matter and isn't ever calculated because the key is to get people in the doors the first week and then completely forget about it and move on to the next shitty plothole.

The LAN Party 2.0 premiers.


So Fidel and Raul are dead. Good riddance.

So what did you think? Is the show worse, better, or fatter?

We don't know about y'all, but we enjoyed it.
We were so tired that we didn't even attend the post-premier party. We don't mean to act so milquetoast, we promise. It's just that Tim Robbins was there and DJ Water Buffalo gets facial tics around him.

Stay tuned if you don't hate the new format. Lots of awesome music will follow.

Time for a change.

As you may have surmised, the recent symbolic death of Fidel and Raul signals the beginning of a new era in the history of The LAN Party. But fear not, for as the Good Book says, "How can I tell that the past isn't a fiction designed to account for the discrepancy between my immediate physical sensations and my state of mind?" As we figure out what to do with those pesky leftover symoblic bodies (wheres Dexter when you need him?), let us regale you with a history of The LAN Party leading up to this point.

DJ White Wizard conceptualized and started the show sometime in 2005. Along with his cohort, MC Hut, the show enjoyed various timeslot changes and the addition of yours truly (then operating under guest status and known as MC Michelangelo) as well as the occasional appearance by DJ Donatello. Around fall of 2006, White Wizard departed the show and left me to fill his not inconsiderable presence. Along with DJ Donatello, I have continued to occupy the timeslot and provide music to you, the WIDR listener. At some point we changed our DJ names to Fidel and Raul Podcastro. I have to admit that it pains me to abandon those names, for they were excellent names, but both of us have realized it is time for a change and the old format as well as those names are behind us.

We have been stewards of the format White Wizard created. In this sense, the show has not been our own. My co-DJ was apt in his remark that we operate as employees, not the boss. I would be lying if I were to tell you that every week's show has been an absolute joy. In some aspects the show has begun to feel a bit like a chore. This isn't a good situation for myself, my co-DJ, or our listeners. Consider the show bought-out and to be under new management. Agressive expansion is in order.
In the spirit of WIDR's motto, Radio Evolution, we are allowing the show to evolve into a similar yet different presentation that we are excited to bring to you every week. The name of the show is still fitting, as we are still two dorks behind computer screens playing a unique mix of music for you every week. Perhaps a slight change is in order. The LAN Party2.0 or something similar? We'll see.

Another aspect of the show that needs addressing is the rather marked decline in seat time for co-DJ formerly known as Raul. After all, in the history of our involvement with WIDR he was here first. If we are to make this work, we should both get fair time in that captain's chair. His endless combing of the internet yields many, many awesome songs that deserve playtime. I look forward to what he will choose to play every week. I hope our listeners feel the same.

Many of the artists we played on the previous iteration of The LAN Party will still be present, for we love the music as much as you do. (Who in their right mind could abandon Flight of the Conchords, Brendon Small, MC Chris and all the others? Not us!) What we would like to add to the show is more progressive, engaging, thought-provoking music that may not be labeled outright as nerdy but is still music we hope you will appreciate.

Tune in tomorrow at midnight, right after The Reggae Revolution to hear our new interpretation of what The LAN Party can be!

Kalamazoo disc jockeys dead after apparent suicide-by-cop

[Flagstaff, Az]
Kalamazoo Disc Jockeys Fidel and Raul Podcastro (no relation) were killed in an apparent suicide-by-cop scheme on Highway US40 in the early hours of Thursday morning. The two Michigan residents embarked on a non-stop trip heading west to California following the broadcast of their radio show, The LAN Party, on Western Michigan University's independent station, 89.1fm WIDR. The men departed Kalamazoo at approximately 3:00a.m. Wednesday morning after posting the podcast of that night's show to their website. Heading westbound on US40 between Winslow and Flagstaff, Arizona State Police stopped the vehicle at a citizenship checkpoint. The men failed to produce any legal documents whatsoever. Background checks were duly made. Homeland Security confirmed that the two men were illegal aliens that operated under the ruse of upstanding citizenry while evading immigration officers. Once realizing their gambit was lost, the men fled the scene at a high rate of speed. Police engaged the suspects and employed the PIT Maneuver in an attempt to stop the fleeing vehicle. The maneuver was unsuccessful but apparently enraged the two fleeing DJs so much that they stopped their car and engaged police in a gunfight. Officer Harold "Harry" Sweatback was killed in the interaction. Following the exchange, the men again fled the scene and continued heading west on US40. Roadblocks were set up outside of Flagstaff in anticipation of the speeding car reaching the city. Tire spikes laid across the road were able to deflate the tires on both the suspect's car as well as the police cruisers behind them. The resulting loss of control of all vehicles involved led to a collision that caused the vehicles to roll. While upside down in a ditch, Fidel and Raul again engaged police with firearms until both suspects were shot and killed. Toxicology reports made on-scene suggest nothing out of the ordinary. An autopsy is to follow later in the week.
Initial time-line construction suggests that the two men stole a 1969 Dodge Charger on Tuesday evening after tricking the owner into letting them take the collector vehicle on a test drive. Owner of the vehicle, Paul Boognish, responded to our reporter: "Yep, theys [sic] drove off with my baby. Mite sad, it is. Oh well, I was too depressed to drive it these days anyway, what with the economy and the oil spill and all ." After departing Kalamazoo, the two carjackers headed west in an apparent attempt to beat all known distance-time records set between Michigan and California. The stolen Charger was selected for it's capacious gas tank as well as it's timeless style and accelerative properties. Credit card receipts from gas stations suggest that the car stopped less than 6 times before reaching Arizona and their subsequent death. The men placed several calls to friends and family members while eluding the police. All witnesses contacted by our reporter suggest that the two felt no remorse for their actions. Friend Nate Ditka adds: "Doesn't surprise me. Those two were in this country on expired student visas and were looking for a way out. Oh, and they were into gay shit, too."
More news to follow on this development as more information is released by the police and the medical examiner.
