Ep. 1360: Where the show where theres a Twitch in our Tikker Video
There's plenty of live video broadcasting platforms to choose on the Web these days, but today we're chatting with one of the pioneers. Justin Kan is one of the co-founders of Justin.tv, and he drops by our studio today for a full episode about the origins of life streaming and how the site paved the road to Justin's new project for live video gaming, TwitchTV.
On today's show, once the amazing Benito finally gets the studio in working order, we break down the Level 3 and Comcast battle--no matter how you slice it, it's still very, very, VERY bad for the Web. VERY. Also, Cyber Monday proves, once more, that marketing works. And NASA is apparently set to announce that aliens are walking among us. And we're just buying the Playboy hard drive collection for the storage. --Molly

I wrote this while contemplating the theory (and oftentimes the futility) of war. In a larger sense it speaks against the philosophy of conflict as a facilitating means, and I'm sure plenty of my idealistic sentiments get wrapped up in there as well.

Forged by a demon. Foretold by a wizard. Found by a king. This is a "psychological fantasy," with dark and brooding characters and a wry levity. Very much in the storytelling traditions of Robert E. Howard and Roger Zelazny. A sweeping, morose fantasy whose thoughtful elements are heightened by an eventual maudlin comedy. First true fantasy to fully incorporate a gay, "brokeback" wizard. From the demented mind of author Francis DiPietro.

Known for his controversial approach to the music industry Gaz Reynolds returns to the ever competative world of POP with his new single 'Some Forgive' on World Domination Records, which includes remixes by Matt Stedeford, Marc Barnes and Starlet DJs, who are currently riding high on the Radio One playlist with their single 'Can't Stop Dancin'. Gaz also has a storming video to match! The video shows Gaz at his best with the back drop of a beautiful city (St Petersburg, Russia) steeped in magical history. The female role in this video is played by Russian model OLYA who is rapidly building her own fan base off the back of this video and it was recently rumoured in the music press that the two are a HOT item both on screen and off. The combination of both Gaz and OLYA is quite explosive and at times very sensual and sexual. Gaz and OLYA will quite literately take your breath away! A recent web cast from Russia on his website Gaz World gave fans a better insight into what to expect from Gaz in the future - more action, more fun, locations, more special effects and more importantly - more GAZ! Gaz Reynolds has an incredible back catalogue of 'HITS' including; 'I Don't Care', 'In This House', 'Where Will You Go?', 'Plastic Girl','On Holy Ground' and the international smash 'Electric Kama Sutra'. 'Some Forgive' certainly has 'HIT' written all over it! This is backed up by Ben Smith of Pressure Radio who recently said; "Nice vocals quality breakdowns pumpin beat wikid!" Judging by the radio spins its already recieving around the world its already a big 'HIT'!! Whilst the track takes Gaz's music in a new direction there is no doubt his fans will be pleased with the end result! The new single includes remixes by Matt Stedeford and guest vocals by the legendary JT The Bone Crusher. Having recently signed several international licensing deals on several of his songs and having bagged major radio air play on an international scale and a stack of major television contracts including BPM TV (4.5 million viewers) in Canada, YMN TV (98 million viewers) in USA and worldwide, and MAV TV (3 million viewers) in USA, and the airing of the video on Video C in UK, it seems the world is in the palm of Gaz's hands. The recent launch of his branded P2P Software and the new video being licensed to Intent Media has certainly helped Gaz climb the ladder of fame. You could even say he really is dominating the world with his World Domination Records Label and his hard headed approach to the ever changing world of pop! A recent article about Gaz published in Boston based magazine SKOPE by Melinda Green, described Gaz as; "A rising music star unlike any other who is a methodic genius". A spokesman for WNOK FM in USA recently said; "Gaz is a very popular Artist on our station which is why we regularly spin his tracks. 'Some Forgive' is just as popular!" KG95 FM, USA have been spinning Gaz tracks since 2004 when he had a major HIT on radio with 'In This House'. A recent rise in requests for his songs has guaranteed air play for 'Some Forgive' Recent additions to My Space, VH1, Aol Radio, MTV, All Music Guide, Rolling Stone, & LAUNCH websites provides further evidence that the interest in Gaz's music is indeed global!
