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.

Free Music is Best Music Unless It Isn't But Ussualy Like the rule with Food it is...

Yes it's that time aGAYn yes we here at the LAN FARTY enjoy spreading the word about places to find legit free musick.

So this day on our plate of fuck the RIAAssness we give you Bifocal Media, now even tho Bifocal sells CD's and does the small indie label thing, they like many indie labels know that if nobody hears their artists then nobody will be even tempted to buy or see them live unless there is word of mouth. The one way I know to create word of mouth is to create sleeper cells of fans.

So without further bull here is their MP3 page

As you may have noticed it lands on a band called The Kickass, and this is simply because they do in fact kickass and it is because of their album "Death Metal is for Pussies" that we sought out more information about them, and thus found this treasure trove of trying before buying.

The Lan Party is a non commercial latex free alternative to cock rings, now with more sauce!
