Yep, it’s the last podcast of September, just giving a few updates and keeping you posted for more in the future… Be sure to check out Brian Vander Ark, he put on a great show at my buddy’s house in September!!
So… I know I haven’t posted anything on this site in a while – been a busy guy. But recently I thought i’d post something non-podcast related, because it’s been on my mind since over the last 48 hours. What is that, you ask? The new PS4 game, ‘No Man’s Sky’ (NMS).
When this game was first announced over 2 years ago, I thought it looked cool. When I found out it was a game where you could go from planet to planet exploring and discovering, it grabbed my attention. When I found out it was going to be released Aug 9th, I decided that i’d pre-order and get it at midnight, if possible. That’s what’s I did… I went to the local Gamestop, got the game – and installed it as soon as I could that night.
I thought i’d just download the day-one patch, then hit the bed… when I found out the patch was less than a gig, I decided to play for a while… almost 3 hours later, I was hooked.
This game reminds me of books I used to read by Isaac Asimov, the Lucky Starr-Space Ranger series. When I went back to do more research about it, learned that in one of the books (Lucky Starr and The Pirates of the Asteroids) there actually was an unmanned survey ship Atlas, makes me wonder if Hello Game’s Sean Murray actually modeled this game a little after Lucky Starr himself… When I play this game, I feel like I am a space ranger, donning my space suit and discovering the universe – in hopes to reach the center of the galaxy! This game is beautiful, one that I can see myself playing hours and hours – and wanting to discover more.
I know some people expected this to be a huge multiplayer game, but with 18 qunitllian (spelling?) planets in the universe of NMS, how do you really think you will see someone?? With the 5-6 hours i’ve played so far, I think i’ve been to maybe 6-8 planets, and none of them have been discovered before… Who knows if I ever will find one in the next month or two.
Well, I could go on about this game, but I encourage you to research it yourself. If you’ve ever wanted to be a Space Ranger, this might be the game for you… I know it’s something i’ve always been interested in..
OK – I’m off to explore new planets and continue to find Zaldor’s World as a Space Ranger in No Man’s Sky!!
I’m a big Prince fan.. I was shocked to hear of his passing on 4-21-2016, and I still am a day later. My podcast is my thoughts, as well as some singing along too… Enjoy and Rest In Peace Prince Rogers Nelson. You will never be forgotten, may your music live on…

I know I’m a little late to the game, as it’s the last day this is able to be viewed FOR FREE, but I just finished watching all 3 Act’s of Josh (and Jed) Whedon’s mini-movie: “Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog”! What is it, you ask? Why it’s a musical starring Neil Patrick Harris and Nathon Fillion – of course! And it’s very funny and worth going to see – NOW! Quick, before it’s not free!
Tomorrow (June 21) you can still see it, but there will be a fee to watch it… probably not much, and it will still be worth every penny!
Sorry for telling you so late, as it’s been free for this whole week!! OOPS! 😉
OK, looks like still haven’t put out a podcast, but i’ve been busy!
Streaming my Karaoke hosting show from Somewhere Bar and No Grill in Wyandotte, MI – And it’s probably the last night it will be called that for Karaoke! Next weekend it will be under new owner, but i’ll still be hosting karaoke – and streaming too!!
Okay, so there hasn’t been any new stuff here since I last posted.. sorry!
However, I’ll be streaming live karaoke tonight, how about that for a consolation prize?
Why no new show? Well, I ended up filling in for The Dawg on The Industry on BounceRadio.net on Monday night from 8pm-11pm instead! It was a lot of fun, played a ton of industrial music, some covers by industrial artists, and even took a call!
Hope to put out a show this weekend – but don’t forget to check out the live streaming Karaoke tonight!
If you haven’t heard, i’m starting a new show TONIGHT (May 13th) on Bounce Radio! 6pm-8pm ET tonight will be the debut of Zaldor UNLEASHED! What will be different from Zaldor’s World? Well, Zaldor Unleashed will focus on indie music, but will also feature interviews that haven’t been heard on Zaldor’s World – For example, tonight features a unheard interview with Thriving Ivory!!

Hope to hear from you or see you in the chat – it’ll be a lot of fun!
Yes, you may know that I host Karaoke in Wyandotte, Michigan at Somewhere Bar And No Grill – Well, the bar will be changing ownership soon, so we’re giving Somewhere Bar a great send off the next two weekends! I’ve been streaming the Karaoke live on the nights when I host – well tonight, I’ll be hanging out on a night I don’t host – and streaming it all live from my laptop! My good friend Jim will be hosting and we’ll be probably tag-team hosting it all night.
Since I’ll have a seperate laptop for the stream, I’ll be able to provide commentary while it’s happening – and add even more to the fun!

Unfortunately I received disappointing news yesterday. Matthew Ebel has decided to postpone his spring tour across the mid-west, which included a stop near me at my friend Erik’s house.
If you happened to purchase tickets, your money will be refunded.
The good news is that he is planning on giving it another go in September – so stay tuned for details!
I am extremely happy to say that the next Zaldor’s World (Episode 204) will include a brand new Nine Inch Nails song! Yes, that’s right – Zaldor’s World will be legally playing Nine Inch Nails! Trent Reznor just released a new NIN full length album called, The Slip – all for free on NIN.COM !
The best part? He’s releasing it under a creative commons license and also giving explicit permission to play it on podcasts! Right from the site:
we encourage you to remix it,
share it with your friends,
post it on your blog,
play it on your podcast,
give it to strangers, etc.
That is something I thought I’d never be able to do – yet here it is, right on NIN.COM !
New show soon, I promise! I just couldn’t wait to share this with you all!
Last night at the Beggars, Cetan Clawson Revolution, Bang Camaro show I got a text message from my good friend James at the Minutes After Midnight podcast – and he told me that there is a new NIN cd out!! It’s all instrumentals, and Trent is releasing it as a free download, or you can buy it for $5, $10, $75, or $300 for signed and vinyl copies! This is an incredible move by Trent, and i’m sure it will shake up the music industry even more! I’ll be buying my copy tonight!!!
It’s that time again, time for another top of the world mix! This episode is a bunch of genres mixed together, with some karaoke tunes thrown in for good measure… 🙂 Enjoy!
Special Thanks for Wander Wolf from Wander Radio for the awesome intro!!

Also, check out her site for her video tour diary too – great stuff from her on the road!
This episode is a special one – not only because there is only ONE Country Co Worker Voice mail, but because it was suggested by a listener, JBSaid! He suggested that I do a christian music based episode, and I found 4 great songs to send to you!
Not only that, but I also have the CCW telling us what the hell he’s listening to, and 2 karaoke songs from The Wander Wolf over at Wander Radio!

This is completely incredible! I often would love to bust out a song like this while in a public place (I have been known to sing while canoeing in the summer!) and get the crowd involved… But this is amazing! Check it out, live accapella performance in Paris by the group known as ‘Naturally Seven’
If you remember last year, I interviewed the band 8MM from their show in Detroit. I also reviewed their recent release, Songs to Love and Die By back in September for BlogCritics.Org Well, I just received word from their record label, Curbappeal Records that he band will be featured today (Thursday 2/8/07) on Grey’s Anatomy with a huge placement that plays the entire song! This is incredible exposure for this incredible band! You might also want to check out their video the the song ‘Stunning.’ It was made entirely on Juliette (the singer’s) cell phone! Very cool!
(Cross-posted from Blogcritics.org)
8mm is Sean and Juliette Bevan. Their names may not look familiar to you, but you may have heard the music that Sean has produced. He has been involved with Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson, No Doubt, Thrice, and many other well-known bands. This husband and wife duo was formed while Sean was producing Kill Hanna’s For Never And Ever, and the band made the last minute request to add female backup vocals. It just so happened that Juliette stopped by the studio and was asked to help. She had never sung in front of Sean before, and everyone was floored by her sultry yet delicate voice. This was the inspiration for Sean to create this downtempo and trip-hop project, and 8mm was formed.
In 2004, 8mm quietly released their 6 song EP, Opener. The band’s down-tempo trip-hop with a dark, haunting, and seductive sound quickly generated a local underground buzz in Los Angeles, and attracted the attention of the LA Times, Internet word-of-mouth, and Nic Harcourt of KCRW who “Got 8mm and put it on the air the next day.”
2005 and 2006 were very busy for 8mm, which saw their popularity gain momentum with ranking in the Top 3 of MySpace in Downtempo and Trip-Hop, plays on many podcasts, as well as a nationwide tour which they booked with the help of their MySpace friends.
September 26th marks the long awaited release of their first full length CD, Songs to Love and Die By on the newly formed Curb Appeal Records. The CD features two of the songs from their Opener EP (“Never Enough”, “Give It Up”), and eight new songs.
Nine of the songs feature the beautiful voice of Juliette, which has been described as a cross between “Billie Holiday and Jessica Rabbit,” and the first track, “No Way Back” gives the listener a wonderful introduction to Juliette’s hypnotic voice.
As the songs progress, you will become more and more enthralled by the breathtaking voice of Juliette and the guitar groove that Sean produces. The first single, “Stunning,” could easily be featured on a movie soundtrack as the credits roll by. In fact, many of 8mm’s songs could be included in a movie soundtrack, they sound that good.
At track six, “Liar”, the music slows even more for a slight acoustic break where Juliette sings about someone who is lying about the love they once had.
The CD then continues the dark, yet beautiful down-tempo weave, leaving you with the final track, which is sung by both Sean and Juliette, “Forever and Ever Amen.” This song is slightly different than the other songs, with it’s piano instead of guitar, yet it still keeps the core 8mm feel. Keep listening to the end of the last song, there is an additional 11th track, which is strictly acoustic guitar with Sean and Juliette singing along about an adventure between heaven and hell.
As I stated earlier, 8mm has a huge following on MySpace, with even an official remix page featuring remixes of “Stunning,” and with more to come in the future.
I have enjoyed 8mm since I first heard them on a fellow Detroit Podcaster’s show, >Digital Detroit Radio. After listening to his show, I quickly bought the EP and looked forward to this full length, as well as a future tour. I have played 8mm’s songs on my own podcast, Zaldor’s World, as well and I was even fortunate enough to interview Sean and Juliette in April of 2006 for my podcast (Episode 102), when they played in Pontiac, Michigan. They are just as incredible and hypnotic live as they are on the CD, and they are the most friendliest people you could meet. This CD should expose their incredible songs to an even wider audience and give them the attention they so deserve. 8mm will be touring again in 2007, they’re well worth going to see if you enjoy their music, and feel free to say “Hi” to them and tell them how much you enjoy their music – They’d love to meet you!
