The show: The Herb Whisperer is carbon negative and is now on hiatus. Fraserhead will hold the fort.

Earlier this week our accountant shocked us with the news that The Herb Whisperer is carbon negative – not carbon neutral like we originally thought. To get him to a point where he is carbon neutral will involve him expending a lot of carbon by making lots of international flights. This means The Herb Whisperer will be on hiatus over the next several months.

Hiatus is not a country in the Caribbean. In fact, The Herb Whisperer has taken up semi-permanent residence in The Andrew Ridgeley Suite at Club Tropicana on the Gold Coast in AUstralia. This involves a lot of poolside action and being served pinacoladas by George Michael lookalikes. The Gold Coast is one of the weirder parts of world.

This does mean that the podcast is out of action for a while.

But it also means that in the secluded privacy of the RDU studio Fraserhead, as well as continue doing the show, can just sit there watching classy music videos by Make The Girl Dance for their new single “Baby Baby Baby”. If you look closely, you will notice that the video image is mirrored (eg. shop names are backwards). Yes, Fraserhead notices things like this.

And here’s today’s playlist in full…

No podcast this week sorry.

The show: Jet Jaguar drops in

Jet Jaguar
Jet Jaguar models a bright orange hoodie from the Tommy Hilfiger “Guantanamo Bay” collection.

We didn’t scare him off. Jet Jaguar, as promised, did drop into the show for an hour* to play some brand new tunes, chat about Malty Media (his collaborative radio show with Aquaboogie), and subtly plug the hell out of the latest compilation he appears on Apropos of Nothing.

Off air it was more like a Gitmo interrogation session – ironic really because Mr Jaguar was wearing a bright orange hoodie from the Tommy Hilfiger “Guantanamo Bay” collection.

At least we got to the bottom of the mystery regarding his website’s odd domain name www.nonwrestler.com. Turns out that way back in the day when Mr Jaguar was trying to register the Jet Jaguar domain name he discovered that a Mexican wrestler already owned it. Henceforth he decided that instead of trying to come up with a new moniker it would just be easier to use the term “non wrestler”. Now, that’s genius.

And a bonus for you music geeks – Jet Jaguar recommends AudioMulch.

* It’s possible that Mr Jaguar stuck around for an hour because we hid his wallet (so he couldn’t catch a bus or taxi) and cellphone (so he couldn’t call for help).
