British Singer Eliza Doolittle on THE LAST PLACE ON EARTH!

Mike talks to characters from TLPOE!

HERE's effizode 25 of THE LAST PLACE ON EARTH with MIKE MATTHEWS!!!Click to listen to the show here...http://michaelmatthews.podomatic.com/entry/2011-04-04T00_49_53-07_00People watch TV at nightI'm doing this show instead, alright?Got a paper to write tomorrowHas something to do with something bizarroOh I went and watched THE FIGHTER one more timeI take it back, Amy Adams acted better than a mime It's funny how when you see a film againSome things you said before get tossed in a binNo there ain't no cure for the summertime bluesYes summer's almost hereSo get on your sweating gear! Hi this Mike Matthews.  Join me this week as we hear more of our interview with up and coming British performer Eliza Doolittle fresh off her big week at South by South West.  We'll also find out what Valentino the Parking Attendant and Bison Bentley are mad about regarding this show.  And we'll talk to a politician who's busy defunding one radio company so he can fund another.  Come with me to THE LAST PLACE ON EARTH!One of the cool things about having a show like this is when little things hit you during the week and you go...argh!  I can't wait to talk about it!  As if talking about it will help diffuse the "argh" from earlier.  Of course, when I actually sit down to do the show 9 times out of 10 I forget what it was I was "argh-ing" about!I just want to know, how are you watching movies on regular network or cable television anymore?  I'm not talking about the cable stations that don't show any commercials.  I'm talking the ones that now actually tell you that "this movie was modified, edited and TIME COMPRESSED."  Why on earth would you watch a movie that's been diced and sliced like that?  Are you that starved for entertainment?  Believe me, there are THOUSANDS of podcast out there, both just audio or with video that are far more worthy of your time.  I use Mediafly to listen to audio podcasts on this system made by Logitech called Squeeze Box.  It's not perfect;  shows drop out and other odd things happen.  But someone needs to make it easier for this privately produced entertainment to get to our general purpose televisions.  One of the reasons why people aren't flocking to this is because they want to just sit back and be entertained and not have to "search" or "click around" to find content.  But after watching 5 minutes of regular television, I can tell you there is no content on tv to be seen!So enjoy the show and check back here next week to hear more of our interview from that amazing band from Newfoundland called Hey Rosetta!You can subscribe on iTunes at:http://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/michaelmatthewss-podcast/id318601461Thanks!  Mike

Mike Matthews interviews singer/songwriter Irene Pena!

Mike talks to the characters of his podcast THE LAST PLACE ON EARTH!

HERE IS effizode 24 of THE LAST PLACE ON EARTH with special guest IRENE PENA!This is Mike Matthews bringing you another show from the one place on Earth that is the LAST place on Earth!  We have some great music waiting for us and Chely Shoehart, our 18 year old giftshop supervisor, makes a return appearance!  This week we have a very talented singer/songwriter from Seattle named Irene Pena.  She and I have an interesting backstory.  No, she's not an ex or anything like that!  We used to work at the same crazy corporation together!  And I mean CRAZY!!!  I ended up lingering within that very lopsided business far longer than Irene did, and it was to my own peril!  I ended up moving my wife and I to another state and then I got let go after a year.  Um, any cab money for the ride home, guys?  Oh, yeah, and that was one big BOYS CLUB!  And no, not the cool 80's band that featured members from The Jets and had one hit song "I Remember Holding You."  No, this was a bunch of unregulated a-holes pardon my francais!But after 2 years and several podcasts later, I don't miss that nutty company.  Yet thanks to social networks and the shrinking landscape in which we live, I was able to reconnect with Irene and hey!  She listens to the show!  So she's on this week.  Her self-penned tunes are awesome and you can hear them all right here!So my last guest, Hey Rosetta!, might be getting me onto the radio.  There was someone affiliated with them who is letting stations know about this show beyond what PRX.org can do.  At some point we might be on the radio again!  If we just remain on the Internet forever, however, I don't mind because I know that listeners like you are loyal and I shall continue producing this show for you!  I am trying to get this show on the campus radio station of the community college I go to.  Of course, they don't respond to emails, even from student accounts supplied by the very college they work for, so I must track down the program director to ask if I can play this show on their airwaves.But stronger than airwaves, please tell all your friends about this show.  We can build this thing!  It's a regular show that's out every week that promotes cool artists and gives you a fun audio alternative to all the other stuff.  Which brings me to other podcasts out there.  Really, it's all down to just radio and tv podcasts as well as big name celebrity podcasts.  Where are the in-home made podcasts?  Where are the not-big names?  I wanna hear something different!  I wanna hear a music show that's also got comedy and variety in it!  When I look up podcasts using the "music" tag, all I get is just music.  Shouldn't it have talking in it since it's called a podcast?  If it's just music, maybe it shouldn't be called a podcast.  Maybe it should be called an album!Oh, and I'm really tired of turkey meat.  Just thought I'd say that.  The ground kind.  Used to think it was amazing.  Now, just tired o' it.So as rain cascades down and various storm drains become backed up, and oh how I praise you precious storm drains!, here is effizode number 24...http://michaelmatthews.podomatic.com/entry/2011-03-26T15_10_52-07_00You can also subscribe on iTunes at http://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/michaelmatthewss-podcast/id318601461Thanks!  Next week it's more of our interview with Eliza Doolittle who has since been at SXSW and featured in Entertainment Weekly Magazine!See you then!Mike

Hey Rosetta! on THE LAST PLACE ON EARTH!

Mike talks with the characters from TLPOE!

HERE'S effizode 23 of "THE LAST PLACE ON EARTH" with special guest HEY ROSETTA!Hi, this is Mike Matthews hopping on the bus that takes us to THE LAST PLACE ON EARTH!  This week on EFFIZODE 23 we talk to a band out of Newfoundland called Hey Rosetta!  They recently played at the Rickshaw Stop in San Francisco and their little set was AMAZING!  We'll also let the Disgruntled Fiddle Player have a hand in interviewing new bands and I'll sing a very short song that hopefully doesn't get me booed off the stage.  It's all next on THE LAST PLACE ON EARTH!So I've had no time for this showMy life's been go, go, go!St. Patty's came and wentHad no boiled cabbage yetI caught poison oak almost 2 weeks backIt's slowly disappearing but I'm just about to yack I hope I don't have some flesh eating diseaseSince I'm made of flesh I'm kind of not very pleasedGonna dress you up with my love...Next time I'm out in natureI'll get to know the poisonous nomenclature!I have been so busy with school lately and then this poison oak thing has had my wife and I going to the internet regularly.  Is it supposed to look like that?  Is it supposed to look that hideous? I'm taking only 2 classes but the amount of work seems to escalate like walking down an expanding hall in your dreams!  It just keeps getting bigger and bigger.  Maybe I should quit this show all together?  Yes?  No?Which means I still haven't done my taxes!  Here we are, less than a month away and I've gotta hop to it!  Or, I could wait till the last minute.  It's not like my CPA charges me any less for getting all the stuff in any earlier.  Make her work!  Oh...wait...she's pregnant.  I should be nice.  Sorry.   This week we talk with such an amazing band called Hey Rosetta! and an amazing singer/songwriter named Tim Baker.  The band's name actually comes from imagery that was conjured up whilst Tim thought about the importance of the Rosetta Stone.  When we saw them perform there were six people on stage and they all played with equal intensity to Tim's voice.  The young group of people that made up the audience seemed to really enjoy them!Listen to the podcast by clicking here...http://michaelmatthews.podomatic.com/entry/2011-03-20T16_23_23-07_00Subscribe on iTunes by going to this link http://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/michaelmatthewss-podcast/id318601461Thanks for listening!  Next week we'll have new artist singer/songwriter Irene Pena!  Don't miss it!Mike
