Generic Update + Three Year Plan for studio upgrades.

Things have been going well recently. Claws & Convo continues to grow as the show approaches it's 10th episode in three weeks. Our good friend Bear has been helping us out a lot, even covering our lodging for Anthrocon and helping to find precious computer hardware to improve the broadcast.

Meanwhile, it would appear that I may have a job opportunity (though probably temporary) working in a workshop in Bloomfield. If that goes through, I'll need to find  a place to live in the aria. I rather live in a regular house rather then an apartment, though with out a room mate I won't be able to afford it. Low rent housing tends to lack valuable studio space, which I'm going to need for the kinds of things I'm planning. I'm running out of space as it is.

If I'm able to find a room mate, then I'll look for two bedroom with a dining room which I'll turn in to a studio with a computer workstation. It'll be used to broadcast shows like Claws & Convo, recording and mastering music, and as a computer network room. It'll give me all the space I need to start working on computers again. I'll also have the space to have several dedicated systems for handling a live broadcast, including servers for shoutcast, IRC, and Teamspeak, as separate systems for recording and streaming audio & video (...eventually).

Cheguar Talks: Labels

Starting a new video series called "Cheguar Talks", where I just speak about these sort of philosophical subjects. This one is about labels, specifically self applied labels.
