12:00pm Miracle Nutrition with Hearty White - A Thought Experiment

What do we talk about when we talk about talking about things? Where do elephants come from? What’s up? These are questions we ask ourselves but not usually out loud for fear of being labeled a person with unanswerable questions. But in Hearty’s world, all questions are asked and then quickly forgotten as Hearty attempts to trick people into loving themselves and others through the art of confusion.

Hearty White lives and doesn’t work in Lexington, KY, birthplace of Richard Hell. His radio non-career spans decades. He loves you in theory.

1.00pm Buttress O’Kneel - Optimise or Die!

Buttress O’Kneel is a plunderphonic culture-vandal from Australia who has been mixing, mashing and morphing found-sound since 1998. Honestly, she’s really too old for this shit, but it’s sort of too late to stop now.  Her Frankensteinian sound-mangling activities have been written about in several academic texts, so she must be doing something right, or worthwhile, or something, surely.  Please, let it all mean something. Please. 

Will you optimise?  Or will you die?  Or both?  For her “OPTIMIZED!” piece, Buttress O’Kneel explores the concept of the evolutionary optimisation of the humyn organism: whether it be motivational, spiritual, technological, multi-dimensional, or just growing a freakin’ beak.  Our culture seems to obsess over this kind of thing constantly: being better, faster, more capable, sleeker, smarter, upgrading until we die.  And then what?  These issues are explored with the irritating machine-gun editing and meticulous lack of overall cohesion that Ms O’Kneel is famous for.

1.15pm Osymyso - Sadtimism

The relentless chasing of happiness and the insistence that we should always be optimistic no matter what can have the opposite effect and make us all sad. So people can be outwardly very happy when they're privately very sad, hence a happy themed mix that sounds miserable. You can't be happy by just stating that you are over and over. It's not meant to be a massive downer as I'm an optimistic person just that you can't force happiness or fake it, just be grateful when it comes and to make the most of it.

The mix is called Sadtimism which I don't think is a word anyone's used before. I thought of sadimism too but it's too close to sadism and I wouldn't want to give the wrong impression.

Osymyso has been doing his thing since the early 1990's, lots of sampling, sound collage and daft beats. His career highlights are now so long ago it's embarrassing to mention them, he's currently in the process of seeking out a new career highlight to talk about. Due to work commitments osymsyo is in an effective hibernation, some would be mistaken for thinking he's stopped producing idiotic music but some fresh recordings will emerge sooner or later and he's hoping you'll stumble across them one day as you bounce around inside the internet.

1.30pm Nick the Bard - Optimized

A (bad) Transformers fan-fic based around the delivery of a single line from the episode "Divide and Conquer".  A line delivery I could never stand, even as a kid.  Who had the episode on VHS.  As one of only two Transformers tapes owned.  That got watched over and over and over. 

Nick the Bard started with WFMU in 2005, bringing along and leaving a mark with his own brand of stupid.  He lives somewhere in the suburbs of New Jersey with his cat Barry, collecting action figures and instructional VHS tapes.  Some have claimed him to be a wizard, others one of the few people that should be wearing a fez.
