POISON - Drummer To Launch Podcast
POISON drummer Rikki Rockett has posted the following message on his MySpace
"So I've decided to do a Podcast. For those of you not familiar with what
a Podcast is, the Wikipedia Encyclopedia describes it, in part as follows:
Podcasting is a method of publishing audio and video programs via the Internet,
allowing users to subscribe to a feed of new files (usually MP3s). It became
popular in late 2004, largely due to automatic downloading of audio onto
portable players or personal computers.
"'Podcasting.' in its strictest sense. is distinct from other types of online
media delivery because of its subscription model, which uses a feed (such
as RSS or Atom) to deliver an enclosed file. Podcasting enables independent
producers to create self-published, syndicated 'radio shows,' and gives
broadcast radio programs a new distribution method. Listeners may subscribe
to feeds using 'podcatching' software (a type of aggregator), which periodically
checks for and downloads new content automatically.
"O.K., so what will I talk about? After all, I have to fill this Podcast
thing with some kind of content, right. So, what do you expect? Some babbling
rock-star jerk-off, obsessed with strip club boobs, and using a vocabulary
chiefly made up of words like fuck and dude and expressions like, 'What
the fuck-ever dude?' Orâ€¦ I could be one of those pseudo-intellectual-wanna-be
rocker types. You know, like how Gene Simmons is now, appearing on things
like CNN to talk aboutâ€¦ um, sorry, I don't remember. But, I'm sure it
involved sex somewhere along the line.
"Some may remember when I did my Dr. Rockett Show on KNAC.com. That was
big fun! I worked along with some really great guests to solve relationship
and other types of issues for folks. It started off as a goof and progressed
to extremely serious issues like rape and suicide. Along with the fun I
began to feel a huge sense of responsibility. Not to mention I wasn't handling
my own relationships so wonderfully. Yikes! So, here I remain, wondering.
"I do have a few ideas, though. How about one Dr. Rockett question. Play
a song or two from an unsigned band. Talk about one current issue and bring
a guest on to help with it. And, ask some guy, in some bar a super serious
question about something while he is drunk."
