Codpaste is a 14-part podcast about the history and practice of sound collage and mashups. A collaboration between Vicki Bennett (People Like Us, previously) and Ergo Phizmiz (previously), Codpaste is an entertaining and instructive wander through such topics as cartoon music, Negativland, easy listening, and William S. Burroughs. There's even a curriculum [30mb pdf] to go with it! Most episodes are about 30 minutes long, feature the same editing techniques and sound sources that they discuss, and are enhanced by Ergo and Vicki's wonderfully quaint accents.

(OK, they're perfectly ordinary accents, I suppose. But I like 'em!)

Thanks! Between my love of PLU and a quick look at the playlists makes me know know I'm going to love this. I'm actually looking forward to paperwork tomorrow so I can dig in.

Damn, I really want this, but I want to download the mp3s and burn them for use in my car. I can't figure out how to get the damn mp3s from the site, even though it is full of podcasting 101 tips. Man I hate podcasts. What was wrong with soundfiles? Clarity, folks. *grumbles into coffee*. Anyone know how to get the mp3s?

Well, you know what they say.

"If you can't beat them, join them?"

Put 'em on a big piece of tape is what we say.

I fear this is going to be a lot less political than I want it to be. Damn art, having other purposes.
