Inebriate! Audiobook: "Trunk and Disorderly" by Charles Stross


Fantastic free audio-novelette, like science-fiction Wodehouse as read by the tipsy shade of Vincent Price.

The Death Of Dynamic Range


How the music industry is ruining their music.

Bicycles with 5000-watt, $4000 sound systems


If you thought it was stupid on a car, imagine how well concert speakers fit on the back of a BMX.

YouTube - Authors@Google: Neil Gaiman


Entertaining as always. Since it's just speech, download the .flv and extract the audio for your listening pleasure with:

mplayer -dumpaudio -dumpfile output.mp3 videofile.flv

Harry Potter and the Underage Blow Job - NSWF auto-playing audio


Mash-up made from Stephen Fry's audiobook readings. The scary, scary thing is that I know the original context of a lot of those samples. :(

FSI Language Courses

 # [via]

"...the home for language courses developed by the Foreign Service Institute. These courses were developed by the United States government and are in the public domain."

Assistive Media audio archives: magazine readings


Best podcast ever, as well as a great thing for the disabled.

LiveJournal Radio


Public LiveJournal voice posts, nonstop and amazingly compelling.

BoilerCast: Purdue University podcasts


They don't seem to be blocking access by IP range (yet?), but it's explicitly for students/staff only. Pity: random lectures are always fun listening.

Revenge CD

 # [via]

"Tracks include: 1) Drill; 2) Party (At Least 200 People); 3) Orgasm (Outstanding)..."

Small things, links and miscellany, sparkling with light. Sam's tumblelog.
