What the %$##!!

OK, I've never made it a secret; I do like to watch the reality shows, and yes...I watch American Idol. Here's my question, though...

Who the hell is voting for Sanjaya? I mean, he seems like a real nice kid, but come on...really now.

That just ain't right.

Don't forget that all the podcast files (yup, the whole archive, starting from show #1) can now be found at our new home at Catch ya later.

On The Move...The Podcast Files, Anyway...

Well, seems as though the "New Blogger" has a limit on how many podcasts it will forward along to Feedburner. This simply will not do.

Since I already had an account with, it only seemed natural that I go ahead and move all the files over, including the entire archive. I am in the process of doing that now, so I apologize if you all of the sudden are getting a bunch of old files showing up in your podcatcher. Then again, perhaps you missed some old shows and this will give you an opportunity to go back and find some new bands and tunes featured on Opinionated Ramblings.

Anyway, the primary feed won't change, and I'm going to keep the blogger site active. I will just link to the Podshow address so you can go find the file if you need to. Commentary, videos, and other stuff will still be posted here, including shownotes from each episode.

Please stay subscribed, and feel free to send some comments and feedback. And Thanks!

What the...

OK, iTunes...what's going on?

For all iTunes subscribers (including myself!), it seems we haven't gotten the last 2 shows. It's like iTunes shut O.R. down at the end of 2006.

I'm not sure what's going down, but I'm gonna look into it pronto. In the meantime, shows 051 & 052 are below. If you didn't get them, please click on the titles and download 'em the old fashioned way. And thanks.

Podshow Number 52 - St. Pat's Day!

Hey Everybody! Happy St. Patrick's Day (well, almost, anyway).

Today's show is a mixed bag of St. Pat's and Irish stuff, at least as we tend to think of the holiday here in the states; a little something for everyone with a bit of cheek thrown in. We've got Traditional, Kilt Rock, Alternative, Folk, and even some Irish Hip Hop - 10 great tunes in all.

Please note: not all of today's show is work-and-child-safe. Be Advised. Here's the lineup and links to the band's websites...
  1. "Drowsy Maggie" by Celtic Stone
  2. "Drunk Tonight" by The Bloody Irish Boys
  3. "Old Black Rum" by Great Big Sea
  4. "Beer, Beer, Beer" by Brobdingnagian Bards
  5. "One Night with the Irish" by Ken Dirschl
  6. "Step Up" by Steffen Coonan with MC Dave Long (I misspoke the website on the the link to visit the site)
  7. "Irish Sky" by Makeshift3
  8. "Whiskey in the Jar" by Dust Rhinos
  9. "Pitcher of Beer" by The New Autonomous Folksingers
  10. "Enniscorthy in a Bottle" The Bloody Irish Boys
Lots of great stuff, all available on the Podsafe Music Network. I hope you enjoy the show!
It's Guinness Time. Catch ya later!
