Nickelback Lyricosis

This is an example of Lyricosis that had me baffled for a while. I guess a good case of Lyricosis is one that you're blissfully unaware of until someone else hears you sing the words and asks "WHAT?".

"Little Women must have damn near killed you."

Your Face Here?

We've added a feature which you should see across the entire web site, over on the left. Quotes from various episodes of Dumbed Down Life, information about the music and topics from various episodes and even links to "friends of the show". Just a small picture with a tag line. What's posted is selected randomly. If you see something about yourself that isn't quite right then let us know, . Also let us know if you have any technical problems with the feature, it's pretty simple but we aren't able to test it across all the different browsers and operating systems.

Two Cams Are Better Than One

While it's great fun to create videos using just one camera, double the cameras is double the fun.

When Lance came over to visit recently we decided to shoot some "Q&A" sessions that will appear on the web site.

We made the films using two cameras and a iPod with a TuneTalk that allows you to plug in a microphone and record directly.

Lance is now in the process of editing together all the bits.

Once completed we'll be putting the videos into the "About Us" part of the web site and no doubt other places too.
