I know you’re busy living your best life creating hazy Friday night memories filled with Saturday morning regret, but right now that obnoxious MSP Waves INTERACTIVE SOCIAL BROADCAST NETWORK host LPFaust needs you.
Interactive Social Broadcast - What kind of Sh*tty Branding is That?
Right about now you’re probably asking yourself WTF is an Interactive Social Broadcast Network? I was right there with you when @r0ndon said we don’t do radio on MSP Waves, so it’s a sad euphemism for “not radio even though it’s kinda radio,”… but I digress.
This “not a radio station/Interactive Social Broadcast Network” broadcasts on Discord…and Vimm.
I know, I know…Discord?
And while I have you in that state of car crash, rubber-necking confused curiosity, let me help you feed that misguided and impulsive curiosity with this shameless link drop to the MSP Waves Discord server (https://discord.gg/74n4e5).
You said Something About a regular Show…
For going on like two years now, I’ve been broadcasting during the family friendly hours of Saturday UTC 3:00 AM – 5:00 AM. If the whole UTC time thing seems like some made up euphemism for a real time zone (like the phrase Interactive Social Broadcast Network for radio station or Reality Television for shitty scripted television), the confusion is real. This UTC nonsense translates to a regular showtime every Friday 8:00 PM – 10:00 PM MST (10:00 PM – 12:00 AM EST/7:00 PM – 9:00 PM PST).
…and Something About a Contest
After two years broadcasting, our circle of intimacy on Joculation (LPFaust’s Interactive Social Broadcast Network show) has grown somewhat, and the time has come for LP to schill for a lead in show.
Somehow the idea manifested during the last show and took on a life of its own – and thus, a contest I had no intention of creating was born.
Each week, one hour before the Joculation show, a new contestant will have the Pirate stream on the server to broadcast their show. A panel of esteemed judges with lots of opinions and no taste will listen and decide if this week’s contestant should be press-ganged into the lead in slot every Friday night Before LP.
I know, I know you’re thinking this sounds like a gangland style jump-in initiation, and you’d like to learn how to become part of the spectacle.
Jump on the MSP Waves Discord server, tag and harass @r0ndon repeatedly until he answers or mutes you, and let he/him know you’re ready to try out for the LP Needs a Lead In Show Contest. It’s so simple and there is nothing quite as fulfilling as spamming @r0ndon with never-ending messages. It satisfies his deep-seated need for relevance and it could land you a spot on the “not a radio station.”
William Shakespeare once said, “all the world is a stage." As we strut and fret on the stage of life, always be sure to ask yourself, "why watch the show when you can be the show?"
