Miscellaneous Tony Stuff

Some other Tony (edit and Richard and Ed) related stuff. If you have any other material you would like hosted here, feel you should have an acknowledgement for a recording, point out any mistakes here, or wish to get in touch, please don't hesitate to mail me.

I have stopped adding the Flash Player, I'm afraid, as it apparently just stopped working. I'm not sure why.

I may try to work it out, or possibly use an HTML 5 Media Tag instead. More likely I will just ignore it completely and hope the issue will go away.

Another blast from the past, here's Tony on The Shambles from what appears to be 2006. The Nickelback references appear to date it as such :) Tony Martin Reports Newsbreak.

Here's a couple of links for the day.
The first is Tony on Justin Hamilton's podcast 'Can You Take This Photo Please'. If you like it, be sure to check out the rest of his catalog.
The second is a university project, very nice dedication to Richard Marsland, created by dshban from Champagne Comedy. Thanks for giving pure humbug permission to publish it, dshban.

Thanks again to AnotherMelbournite (@Captainsuburbia) for capturing this, I tend to miss the weekend ones, so I really appreciate his vigilance :)

Here is Tony and Sam Pang on 3AW again.

This recording claims the dubious distinction of the first purehumbug recording capped, uploaded, advertised, and linked to by the Scrivener himself before I even knew that he was on radio.
Tony and Sam Pang, 21 Mar, 2010

Thanks to AnotherMelbournite (@Captainsuburbia) for snaffling this, and Sniv Whettuce who will feel left out if I don't mention him ;p

    Thanks a bundle to Mark Lymbers who emailed me this spot with Clive Robertson on 2UE.
    It is a wonderfully candid piece on Radio, Comedy, Get This, Writing, MMM and Guy Dobson.
    I'm not sure about exact dates, he does mention it was 2 years and there months since Get This, so it is fairly recent, but, trust me, it doesn't matter.

    Two Tones
    The last stand in for Banana Lounge Broadcasting, probably the best of the three

    Unfortunately, 3RRR appeared to have audio problems for the first hour, either partly, or fully losing the left channel, so I have mixed the first hour to mono, so the levels do fluctuate a touch. The 2nd hour stands as it was on the stream.

    Update As it turns out the audio panning issues was only on the internet stream, the on-air audio quality was not affected, so ShitScared has kindly passed to me his rip from the loggers. The url remains the same, the audio quality, however, is much improved. Thanks SS.

    As it turned out, after last week's fiasco, we now have a plethora of recordings to chose from. I present you with Logifuse's, largely as it will be ready a good 10 minutes before mine :) Here it is, the 2nd of 3 stand ins by the Two Tones for Banana Lounge Broadcasting.

    Technical problems plague, I'm afraid, as Streamripper decides to stream 112MB of RRR stream to a null pointer.

    Update: A rather large bucket of thanks to Logifuse for getting hour one of the show and Jasmus for picking up the last hour, and Logifuse for getting them All Together Now! (sorry, pun dubiously intended)

    Thanks to Snatto Gauro from Champagne Comedy, here is Tony (and Greg Sitch) on Headley Gritter's 'Party Show' on 3RRR, just in case you weren't listening from midnight to 2am. To quote Tony 'Expect incoherent rambling and spilled drinks'. 3RRR is a great vehicle for Tony, pity he doesn't have a regular gig. A great listen.

    Richard Marsland's Sunday Mail articles
    It was great to see so many tributes for Richard on Sunday, it was very moving.

    Many thanks to shaw0090 from ChampagneComedy for these, Richard's articles in the Sunday Mail, comprehensively collated by shaw0090.

    He has copied and pasted them into a .doc document, which should be readable by most. If you are not able to open .doc files, try using Microsoft's Word Viewer (PC only).

    If anyone has real trouble opening it, and wants me to publish it on purehumbug, please let me know.

    Richard's Sunday Mail Articles

    December 06 2009
    Richard Marsland
    I have rewritten this a couple of times.

    I never met Richard, so it feels largely disingenuous to wax lyrical about what a lovely guy he was, how everyone he worked with had nothing bad to say about him or what a loss his suicide was to me personally.

    The facts are, I only knew Richard through Get This. I felt a certain alignment with him, as I used to be a panel operator for longer than I care to admit, and we have a very similar voices (and we're both Virgos), but I have to admit, Richard was better looking than me, and he had a sharper sense of humour. He made me laugh, and it still chills me to hear him on Get This saying things like 'I think I will have children'.

    Suicide and depression, unfortunately, is not foreign to my life, so I do understand the confusion and sorrow that his family and loved ones must be experiencing today. His death shocked me especially as, like countless others, I didn't see coming a mile off.

    If Richard has touched you in any way, please contribute to Beyond Blue and hope that your donation will go some way in preventing another rising talent lose hope in their moment of despair.

    Although it is hardly a pure humbug exclusive, here, first is Richard's open letter to all Get This fans, and, of course Tony and Ed's memorial podcast.

    RIP Richard Marsland. Rest assured, you are remembered.

    Here's Tony appearing on 3RRR this morning to give an 'understated' farewell Sam Pang.

    I really enjoyed this one, it's well worth the listen, though I'm sorry, I did clip the end of the 2nd last segment, I missed the line 'We need to make some money' (i.e. play some ads).
    If that ruins your listening pleasure, I'm sure logifuse or Shit Scared will supply you with the missing second.

    Thanks, also, to everyone who pointed out that Tony thanked purehumbug (indirectly) and linked to purehumbug (directly) via his Twitter account scrivenersfancy. I am happy that he approves, and I have to give the obligatory "How Good Is This!".

    December 01 2009
    Thanks again to Logifuse for this recording. The Two Tones back on RRR, sitting in for Dave Graney and Elizabeth McCarthey. They'll also be back from Dec 29th for three weeks over summer. Good news. Thanks also are due to surelypaul for spotting this originally in the RRR Programming.

    A wonderful editorial by Tony at the outset, I must say.

    Just a quick heads up, I've added 2 new
    ring tones. The first is a Venga Bus medely (Richard, Ed, John Howard, The world's oldest recording (Persons of Interest) ) created by Ludicrousity from Champagne Comedy (aka Megan), the second is the Ed Kavalee theme (as requested by HowCome? from GetThis Wiki).

    A Community Service Announcement

    I was recently contacted by the owner of a new Get This site JumperPants.info, the least official guide to Get This, where he plans to have all episodes of Get This transcribed! One benefit of this project will help tackle all those forum questions 'what episode of Get This featured ...'

    This is something I had planned to do sooner or later myself, if not fully transcribing all shows, to at least bullet point them when I finally get around to offering show streaming (I really must get around to that :/), however realised that the garganutuan (or was that elaphantile) nature of the task was probably outside of my abilities (not having a mixture of OCD, Aspergers and an unlimited amount of time on my hands).

    Jumperpants.info has nicely tackled this issue, alleviating the RSI risk for a single individual, and sharing the load.

    So, fellow Get This fans, I ask you to give an hour of your time, choose an undocumented epsiode, and start transcribing.

    Once you have chosen your episode, navigate to the page (the standard appears to be http://jumperpants.info/wiki/Episode_YY-## (e.g. http://jumperpants.info/wiki/Episode_07-74), where you will see an 'Uncreated Page' template. From there, click 'Create' and off you go.

    As I am not the owner of this site, I will not try to assume too much of his wishes, but, even though this is Get This and jumperpants is a Wiki, please resist the temptation to grafitti :)

    Your time is not tax- deductible :)

    October 16 2009
    Thanks again to the Champagne Comedians logifuse for recording this, and deanoss for spotting it on the RRR schedule.

    Radio (thanks ShitScared)
    You're the Top - Dean Elliot
    I found this gem whilst listening to a classic Jazz channel on (I think) Shoutcast radio. You'll recognise it instantly (though, unfortunately, due to cross fades, the top and tail are a bit obscured)

    Sampling (analogue obviously) well before it became popular!

    From Wikipedia :

    In 1962 Elliott released an LP on Capitol Records entitled Zounds! What Sounds!, ... The LP header read "Music and Sound Effects in a Stereo Spectacular!" and the subtitle captured the basic goals, sound, and feel of the album well: A Sonic Spectacular Presenting MUSIC! MUSIC! MUSIC! With these special Percussion Effects! Cement Mixer, Air Compressor, Punching Bag, Hand Saw, Thunderstorm, Raindrops, Celery Stalks (the crunchiest), 1001 Clocks, Bowling Pins and Many Many More!!

    I also found another Get This theme track original a month or so ago, but, until I'm sure I've lost it, I won't give it away yet.
