The band chat about the latest Lovespirals news including their recent website overhaul, gear acquisition, fun song licensing placements, new songwriting and recording, as well as chat about finding good “guy hair” in SecondLife, “What Is War-N Listening To On iLike?,” are RSS readers just for geeks, and much more. And last – but not least – Ryan and Anji share a clip of “Sundrenched,” the 7th completed track from their upcoming 3rd album.
Lots of updates are being made to the band site this month, the biggest of which is integrating WordPress into it so we can connect with the blogosphere at large. Now the front page of the site has a continuous feed of our news, podcast, and blog entries — all mixed up together, but tagged with categories. You can still view just news or blog entries on separate pages if you like, as well. We’re still ironing out all the kinks and figuring out what works best, but it looks pretty good and it’s functioning, so feel free to poke around and make some comments!
i watched the macworld keynote on my computer and saw the new iPhone demonstration by steve jobs. a video ipod, cell phone, and portable computer all in one; what a damn cool idea. i’m not sure if i’ll be an early adopter and get one when they’re released later this year. however, if this is the way things are headed, then i’m excited. having google and google maps at my fingertips is something that i’ve wanted for years. ever been out somewhere and had to call a friend to do a google search to find some info for you? maybe i’m just weird, but i have. plus for doing shows, i often bring a laptop with me for additional music support; backing tracks and such. the iPhone will be be able to handle that with ease. i’ll be keeping my eye on this and see how it plays out over the next months and years.
Ryan and Anji give a brief rundown of their New Year’s celebrations — including Anji’s Tofurky Roast feast, the band wax poetic on recent audio equipment updates, including a Ryan rant on speakers and subwoofers, Ryan becomes an iLike convert, Anji shares fan mail connecting her to French Maid TV, Anji shares her “Internet Land Bridge Theory” and that’s about it…

I thought I’d put together a Top 20 list of my favorite podsafe songs of 2006, then I realized I should present it as a podcast. Duh! It was fun to put together, but boy were the shownotes a pain in the ass… Anyway, I did all the hard work so you can just enjoy the tunes and direct links to the band’s mp3s and websites. Lucky you! Check it out.
