Eclectica v2, Ep.2! It Liiiiives!!! XD

This episode is dedicated to the great Mr.Owain Phyfe, who has inspired me in so many ways since discovering his work now many, many moons ago. The picture below isexactlyhow I remember him; the day I first plowed dreamy-eyed but determinedly through the VA Renaissance fair, to find out where that -enchanting- music was coming from. And ever since, I have been positively captivated by his incredible voice, his passionate, unique creations, and his lyrical style. To my knowledge, Mr. Phyfe was a self-taught musician, ancient & medieval linguist and surely, a scholar, and for that, he blows me away even more. Sadly, he passed this year due to pancreatic cancer, but his memory, through his artistry and pure, captivating music, will live on. Thank you for your song, Mr. Phyfe. You were the first and only real bard I think I've ever met, and you inspire me to this day. On a brighter note, I'd also like to give a shout-out to Madlenka, Bagoas, Mavi, Nina Amaya, and my other friends who're...

Beannachtaí na Féile Pádraig Oraibh - A CeltiSode!

CeltiSode 2010! Happy (Belated) St. Patrick's Day, Everyone!! First off, let me please humbly apologize for the HUGE delay that this episode has weathered. Thank you so much for your patience! I truly hope you find the show well worth the wait. :):) Whether you hear this on St. Paddy's itself or tune in during any other time of the year, I hope this day brings nothing but joy to you and yours, and that you enjoy this slightly super-sized episode as much as I do. (And that's after listening to it a million times during its arrangement, so that's saying something! ;D) This show is chock-full of fantastic music, made by some unbelievably skilled & gifted musicians! Some of this is work I've collected over many, many years (through places like myriad renaissance festivals, Thistle & Shamrock shows, and a good few Celtic festivals), while other pieces were acquired more recently; explicitly for play on this show. Celtic music has been a part of my heart for as long as I can remember, and...

An Eclectican Mother's Day; 2010

Happy Mother's Day, Everyone!!! An Eclectican Mother's Day, 2010 Welcome one and all! There's little preamble needed for this episode, other than that I hope you enjoy this little musical tribute to mothers of all shapes, types, sorts & sizes (and hopefully that you do so with your mother. :)) There is some blues and a mother-daughter song put in here to send a "hello" out to my own mother, but there are also songs about Mother Earth and other types of mothers, as every mama is special. ^_^ May all of you have a splendid Mother's Day, and a big "thank you" to all the mothers out there, as well as all the fantastic people (male & female) who've done their own shares (if not moreso) of mothering in my life. :) I Love you, Mom. Yours Forever in Song,DJ Selchie Track List Paul and Storm - Mother's Day SongMean Gene Kelton and the Die Hards - Sweet Mother BluesLance Larson - Happy Mother's DayKevin Reeves - MotherEzra Thomas - Momma's Song (or the Mother's Day Song)Roscoe Chenier - A Mot...

A Sickly Apology for the Saint Paddy's Day Show's Delay

A Sickly Apology for the St. Pat's Show's Delay Greetings everyone! Unfortunately I'm sick as crud atm, and that's delayed the production on the Celtic/St. Paddy's Day show. :( Please forgive me for this delay, but know that as soon as I no longer sound as if I've been gargling gravel and can finish a sentence w/o coughing, I'll get back to recording my voiceover portions of the podcast; so it will be live and active and ready to go! I have a HUGE show planned for you, chock -full- of great music and stupendous musicians that I truly hope you'll agree to be worth the wait. ^_^ (Plus, they'll have less talking than has been heard in previous eps, so you can just get right to the music!) Until then, please enjoy this one silly selection from Brobdingnagian Bardsman Marc Gunn, as well as this snippet's lovely background music by Poitin! (Whose name I was not even about to try mangling on air. ;)) Both are graciously made available by Marc and the many wonderful bands at CelticMp3s.com,...

The Magic of the Harvest Season

Eclectica's Faerie Harvest Happy harvest season, everybody! In honor of so much faerie-influence being present in my life, I've centered the next few shows on the world of Faerie, and I really hope you enjoy the music featured! It's a delight for me to share this music with you, and I hope you find just as much magic in it as I do. :) Whether you're into celebrating Hallowe'en, or prefer to just sit around the table with your family and friends for a good old Thanksgiving dinner, I hope this latest episode of Eclectica finds you well! For "many longs" as my grandmother would say, I've had the next few episodes in the works; so instead of blabbing all over the place here, I'll simply let the next (and long-time coming) episode of Eclectica speak for itself! Here's to a marvelous Turkey Day, more things to be thankful for than you could ever possibly count, and an All Hallows Eve that's nothing but pure magic! Track Listing: 1. Caprice - Enter Laoris2. Elvendrums - Walking in the Wood...

Episode 7: Audible Anomalies

Eclectica Episode 7: Audible Anomalies I've been sitting on this episode for a bit; trying to decide whether or not to publish it as-it was when I first "finished" it, on the night of its creation. Since my microphone woes have not quiiite yet been resolved (though a remedy is fast approaching on the horizon- with the help of UPS ;)), it occurred to me to try something new for a change, and put a little twist in the mix. What exactly? Well, I thought I might let my screen reader speak for me this time, as our temporary show announcer! ^_^ I thought it'd be something neat, new and unique, you know? But in the end, I decided to go with the advice of a more seasoned podcaster. Therefore, in lieu of letting Jorgan the Electronic Voice Announcer speak up for me (to save you all from having to bear with my cruddy microphone), I chose to re-produce it, w/my own (hopefully pleasing & endearingly oddball) voice. :) As for the rest of the show's content; a couple of weeks ago I got a "bee in ...

Giving Props Where Props are Due

I've been wondering about what happened to a favorite local DJ whom I no longer hear on the radio anymore, so tonight I decided to go research what was up. Un/Fortunately I found a site that discussed the problem; a station-wide "transition" from one format to another, and it inspired me to write this in response. ..It also reminded me of why Eclectica exists, thus I thought it only right to mention that here, and give proper credit where credit is due. :) Download Eclectica Props Here * * * * * * * * *

The Slightly Super-Sized, Wuvvy-Duvvy Valentine's Day Show!

Direct V-Day Show Download Okay, maybe it's not completely lovey-dovey, but upon examination of the songs I've predominantly used in this episode, some might think it's close... I'm a sap, n' it shows. ;) I tried over and over and over again to make the music I wanted to use in this episode line up to create a storytelling ep. of sorts, but nothing ever quiiite worked out- so I just used a refinement of my first list; where the items have been lined up the way they are because they just sound good that way. :) One could say that they're now in little thematic groupings of things like "love lost," "love gained" and "love sought," but the only two pieces w/real placement meaning are those placed at the very end. ("Where Beauty Moves" and "Breakable.") Upon final examination (and the nagging feeling that I was missing something- which inspired this realization) I kind of wish I'd put "Where Beauty Moves" before "Strict Machine" (as the feelings of the song would go better together, it'...
