Apologies, Server Farted

Apparently the host server wigged out overnight and while I was out with my family today. The main result of this seems to have been some weirdness in the RSS service, and it turns out some of you may have gotten up to two dozen repeat posts. Here on the main website, the Twitter feed repeated itself twenty times, and on the LiveJournal feed at http://warren-ellis.livejournal.com/ there are eight repeats of the most recent del.icio.us dump (and god knows why that happened). The latter, I’m afraid, I can’t clean up, because there’s no instantiation of it on the main site. Sorry about that.

In other news, I have a joint of pork from a rarebreed-pig/boar cross. Much darker than ordinary pork. It is in fact Dark Pork. Which will probably soon be a series from DC Comics. This will go well with the bottles of beer I bought from the Felstar Brewery out of Felsted, an hour north of here. One’s called Dark Knight and I swear the other is called Spooky Chick. Spooky Chick is in the refrigerator.

The 4am: Second Season

I do an irregular podcast here, called The 4am. It’s composed entirely of music sent to me by bands and musicians. If I like it, I play it, basically. You can find the first 13 episodes in the sidebar player — they’ve been played some 55000 times.

Haven’t done one since March. Now I have a decent set of speakers for this laptop, it’s easier to resume. So I’m starting from scratch, for a second season of The 4am.

It won’t happen, of course, without new music. If you think you’d like to be on the podcast, please email me your music (mp3, 128k or better) at warrenellis @ gmail.com. That email address is only used for the podcast. Including a link to your site is always useful — saves me having to hunt around for it myself.

Tell your friends if you like. But I can only play mp3s sent by the artists themselves. if you send me mp3s from bands you really like, I just have to delete them. Okay? Thanks.
