A big thanks to George Hrab for the intro.
I'm Laura and I'm doing the show without Dwight or Sasha tonight.
I don't like Christmas. It's just a lot of pressure and I fail at Christmas traditions, besides I'm not religious. I do like other holidays though.
I play "Christmas Here on Mars" by the girl group Bubble from the EP Bubble & Black Halos Xmas 2001.
Even though this podcast is called The Coffee and Tea Show, it is more of a comedy discussion and indie music show. But we do drink coffee and/or tea during production. Tonight I am drinking Kroger store brand coffee. Why? Cuz I am broke. However, I did grind the beans, so nyah!
I play the great Texas blues piece "Coffee Man" by Calvin Owens from his album The House Is Burnin'.
We had a really good Thanksgiving with the inlaws. No problems. We're all fat and happy.
I play "Honey-Bee" from the Scottish singer Super 8 from his album Daysaver.

I was looking over my stats and noticed that some folks listened to Coffee and Tea Show from a link to Noisely. I wondered what that was and was really impressed.
It's a web-based player from the podcast directory YouLoud. You go to the site and type a few words of your interests, and the site does the rest. This would be a good way to try out some podcasts and have something playing while you do other work on your computer.
I am very impressed. Does anyone else have any other easy-peasey sources for podcast listeners like this?

This show was recorded way back on November 5th, but computer problems (i.e. bad power supply) precluded editing the show and uploading it in a timely manner. In fact, we haven't been able to record Coffee and Tea Show for a while! But hopefully everything has been taken care of and we'll soon be back to a regular recording schedule. We really missed you guys!
Tonight's show consists of our guest podcaster Daniel, Dwight and Laura.
We start out with a discussion of possible voter fraud due to electronic voting.
First song: "Liberty Jones" by The Shakes.
Our next topic of discussion is Fundamentalism. Also what is our favorite Thanksgiving food. We discuss our favorite Bible verses because we're wacky like that. Daniel points out that the Bible was polytheistic at first. Green bean casserole is pretty darn good. According to the Bible you shouldn't mix fabrics and you should have blue tassels. Who wants a vibrating shaver? Everyone must miss Sasha so much. Chestnuts are pretty nice.
Laura has been enjoying the Hellbound Alleee podcast lately. It's a smart pro-secular-thought show with quirky music in the Mondo Diablo episodes.
Suddenly a demon is summoned.
The Coffee and Tea Show is part of blubrry.com and gapodcastnetwork.com Podsafe Music Network supplied tonight's musical interludes.
Last song: "Coffee Shop" by Smallfish from their album What If.

I am so tired of waiting for the power supply so I can put up a new show. Every day I ask Dwight if he has any tracking information, since it was he who ordered it. It was supposed to arrive this week, or so we hoped. I wanted to podcast a couple of shows this weekend because it is difficult to get any in during the week, but it looks like all is for lost.
If you miss the sound of my voice, you can always catch Sean and me on Rockypod because I am still trying to get that show online through hook or crook, but this show is my baby--my first podcast--and it feels neglected. I haven't called Sasha to see if she wants to record lately because of the computer issues.
Once you start podcasting regularly you start thinking about it all the time. You want to save your stories for the show. You listen to people tell you things because you want to pass those tales on. I feel like we have so much to say but someone slapped duct tape over our mouths.
Anyway, I have a couple of people lined up as guests on the show as soon as I can confirm a time to get together with them. I think you'll like them!

I am posting this at work (after I'm off the clock). Why, you may ask?
My computer is down and has been for about two weeks. I am waiting for a new power supply to come in (it has been hard to find one--the computer is a 1999 Sawtooth Mac G4 and there were 2 versions of the power supply made for that year. Needless to say, pricey as well.).
I do have a show in the works but haven't been able to post it or even get to it. Sasha's been very busy with school and hasn't been able record for a while but Dwight and his friend Daniel helped me record a show.
Bear with me folks, and keep subscribed. I love you all and miss you.

Today I went to the grocery store where a little boy pointed me out to his mother and said, "Momma, Halloween is over and that lady still has her Halloween costume on."
But I feel pretty good though because right before that a lady came up to me and asked me what color my hair was because it was so beautiful.
We're going to be working on Podcamp Atlanta today at 9:00 Eastern with an online meetup. We wanted face-to-face at Java Monkey in Decatur, but that was nixed because so many of the organizers live way north of there. I think that some of us still plan to meet there next Sunday though.
I can hardly wait. We plan to have Podcamp in March, though details are still being worked out. Anyone in the south who either has a show or wants to start a podcast would do well to attend this free event.
