After some deliberation I’m putting the show on temporary hiatus. Reason being life is getting in the way of making the show you deserve to hear.
We’ve had a good five year run and I fully intend to bring you many many more years of the best in Creative Commons Music. But now is not that time, and the show will suffer in the interim.
That doesn’t mean we won’t have some special episodes when the mood arises; far from it. But the regular every-other-week transmissions are not happening until further notice.
Nobody is more bummed about this than I am, and I’m looking forward to when I’m able to share music with you. That’s important to me, but other things need to take precedence.
Take care and stay metal!
The next episode of Open Metalcast is going to be delayed a bit. Have been pretty busy lately and my will to put together a show has been sapped. I hope this will give everyone a chance to catch up and pick up the albums from the previous episodes.
We’ll be back shortly with more of the great Creative Commons metal music you’ve come to expect. Count on it!
Just a quick note that Open Metalcast is taking a brief hiatus for this week. We’ll return, ready to bang heads, crush skulls, and give you the finest in Creative Commons Metal music on 7/23.
Hope to see you then!
I just uploaded the last few files to Archive.org this morning. If everything went according to plan, we should have every single file from Open Metalcast up on Archive.org (save for some special announcements). If you notice a link on this site still pointing to this site, please let me know. I’ll probably do one last sweep to make sure, and once that’s done, I can put that project to bed.
All future episodes will have their audio files distributed via archive.org. Please let me know if you run into any issues.
Thanks for listening!
Just a quick update to let everyone know that I’m moving the archives of Open Metalcast to the best place I can think of for archiving. Heck, it even has archive in the name. Yes, I’m moving the links to archive.org, which should hopefully lighten the bandwidth load on the server (which has been performing admirably in the past few days. Yay, Linode!) and move it somewhere where it can be kept in perpetuity. The new listeners from Metal Injection have literally used up 1/3 of my bandwidth allocation for this month, which is awesome on the one hand, but is pretty unsustainable in the long-term. So, hopefully this will keep the bandwidth bills low, and keep you in the awesome Creative Commons metal you’ve come to expect from this show.
Note: You don’t have to update your links or RSS feeds. This should all work transparently to you.
If you have any problems downloading any of the shows, please let me know (craig@openmetalcast, or leave a comment below). It’s a slow process to move everything, but in the long run it’ll hopefully nicer for all of us.
Thank you for all of the downloads! You’re all making some great problems to have. 🙂
