Tonight's theme [Feb. 23rd, 2009|04:41 pm]
The Time Machine Show

sonicblu
Tonight's show will be one of a great memorial to those who have recently departed us. I will be running a dedication show for them. Among the list of those being remembered are:

Forrest J. Ackerman-
I've known Forry going quite some time back, and although we knew his time was coming, we still had a difficulty in accepting the news of his loss. Forrest J. Ackerman was a tremendous man, helping millions get on their way to a literary and movie-making career. He was the editor of Famous Monsters of Filmland, and have starred in many horror and science fiction films. He and I are both very close friends with Carla Laemmle, actress in the original Dracula (1931) and a prima ballerina dancer in Phantom of the Opera (1925). When I heard the news, I immediately called Carla and talked to her for a while, which was a great stroke of comfort for the both of us. Forry was quite the collector of science fiction memorabilia, and everyone saw Forry as their own uncle, for his advice, his help, and his concerns.

Patrick "Furp" Reed-
The furry community mourned the abrupt passing of Furp, a very well-respected fur amongst thousands of people, from those that didn't know him well enough but really wanted to, to those whom he had offered first aid when they needed it. Furp was also the type of guy that knew how to party and when, and never held any grudges against anyone for any reason. He always wished the best for the welfare of each and every one of us, and went above and beyond the call of duty to offer aid and help wherever it was needed. He was only 29.

Sam-
Sam was a guy that constantly came into the record store when I worked there as an energetic teen, and I recall the many times he would come in to visit my boss, Doug, and we would all have a great time joking about things and playing some awesome guitar licks. Sam was recently removed from this earth by his own hand, as he committed suicide shortly after being prescribed sleep medications, which may have had a serious impact on his suicidal decision. Sam was very well respected, and was a supreme fan of music of many types, mostly classic rock and roll. Friends and loved ones of Sam's deeply mourned his loss, for he was more than a friend to some, and an all-around great guy.

Molly Bee-
Molly Bee was a very talented country singer, who started her singing career at age 10. She made her way to the Tennessee Ernie Ford Show, where she became a regular guest. Her voice was fantastic and her humor brought smiles to the many people that she worked with. I first met Molly Bee precisely one year ago. I was very eager to meet her, for I had listened to her music and loved the sound of her magnificent voice. She was a constant guest on the Tennessee Ernie Ford show, as well as Melody Ranch and I believe she was also on a couple episodes of Hee Haw, though I may be mistaken about that one. When I met with Molly Bee, I had nothing but great things to say about the experience. She was quite busy meeting with fans and friends alike, but she still had enough time set aside to hang out with me and relive some of those old memories by showing her some Youtube videos of her performances. She was very impressed with how much I admired her, and the visit we had with one another was indeed one to remember for eons to come. Recently, Ms. Bee died of a stroke at 69 years of age.

These people all meant something to me, and it really hurts when someone you love or admire is gone, but when multiple people in your life start to go, it doesn't make the pain of their loss that much easier to take. However, we must remember the people that we once knew, admired, and loved with fond memories of their existence on this earth and what they meant to us all. Then, think of them in a much better, more peaceful place, free of pain and worriment, and allow that thought to bring us relief. True that they will still be missed here on Earth, but we shall all reunite together at one point in time when it comes our turn to make that crossover into the afterlife, where we shall become one with those we loved and appreciated in life once again.

I hope to have a decent outcome in listener ratio for tonight's show. I will also be turning to the listeners for any words that they would like to impart onto anyone they've ever lost in life. If you've missed the link before, details on how to tune into the Time Machine Show are on the home page, left-hand navigation panel under the Planet Furry server on http://www.planetfurry.com/users/sonicblu. Feel free to tune in, post a message to my IM about anyone you wish to remember and any fond memories you've had, and come together with other listeners in the times of tragedy and loss. I, as well as the ones that have departed us, will most appreciate it.

Time Machine Reminder [Feb. 23rd, 2009|01:43 am]
The Time Machine Show

sonicblu
Just a reminder that the Time Machine Show will be returning to the airwaves of internet radio tomorrow night, Monday, February 23rd. Our return show will also be one of memorial, for those that have recently left us in the world, and how we remember them. I will be dedicating tomorrow night's show to them all: my mother and father, my good friend Furp, and Sam, a friend I've met when I worked at the record store back home who was really good friends with my boss, Doug. We will also be turning to you the listener for any words that you would like to speak on behalf of those you may have also lost in your lives as well. Please spread the word about the show's return, and of the nature of tomorrow's show. See you on the airwaves, and I'll see you on the flip side!

Computer Malfunctions Prevent Show from Appearing Online [Dec. 5th, 2008|05:35 am]
The Time Machine Show

sonicblu
[music |プリンス - トロと旅する~ポップス・コレクション]

Greetings. Here I am again, reporting of yet another computer malfunction. The same problem with the CD ROM drive keeps resurfacing, and this is the third time on the third laptop I've had to rectify the same malfunction. I will need to return this machine back to Geek Squad yet again, so long as it's still under warranty, might as well use the full extent of the service. Ergo, the show will be offline until further notice. I will report here again when I'm ready to air the Time Machine Show once again. Until then, keep your fingers crossed that it doesn't leave me in another two months of no-show, and I'll see you on the flip side!

Greetings listeners. Due to today's interview with a potential job interest and seeking venues with other companies, I will be unable to run the Time Machine Show tonight or tomorrow, but I shall return Monday. Wish me luck out there. :)

Time Machine Show is Back Online [Oct. 12th, 2008|02:00 pm]
The Time Machine Show

sonicblu
As most of you may or may not know, The Time Machine Show is back online and in full swing of things. Many apologies for the lateness of my posting. (After a few months of being out of commission, one tends to misplace the usual routine.)

I would also like to mention about a few upcoming events for the show.

On October 22nd, The Time Machine Show will be celebrating its fifth year anniversary for being on the air, so during the week of October 20th - 24th for the first two hours of showtime, I will be playing down some of my old Time Machine demo tapes that were made eleven years ago for a local radio station called CD 104. These tapes (which were mentioned on my Wikifur page) were made to get my foot in the radio broadcasting door, and I have not heard these tapes since they were made. I'm kind of interested to revise the old demo tapes to see how they compare to the show in this day and age.

From the 27th - 31st of October, The Time Machine Show will be running its Halloween Hype series, featuring the haunted hits and spooky tunes that will lead us into the Halloween season.

In other news, since I got my laptop back up and running again, I've been needing to play catch-up with my regular routine, but there are other things that need to be done. First of all, many of you may not have noticed that the Official Time Machine Show Website is down due to the domain name sonicblu.net running past expiration. The website is found at its old location at http://www.planetfurry.com/users/sonicblu until Sonicblu.net is back up and running again. I'm still unsure how long it will take to get everything finalized and ready, but you can still view the old web site in its temporary location until things get underway with my domain name.

That's about all I have to report this time around. Once again, I apologize for the many months of delay on posting about the Time Machine's return. Stay tuned for this locality for further updates, and I'll see you on the flip side!

Back from AC [Jul. 1st, 2008|04:54 am]
The Time Machine Show

sonicblu
Well the repair man came by with a replacement modem right as we were heading out for AC. Now that I'm back online again, the show will recommence during its normal scheduling, but my laptop is in need of repair. Therefore, I will run the show as long as I can before I can get a schedule arranged for the laptop to be fixed. Being under warranty, I'll be able to have the whole thing fixed without worrying about there being any fees.

I would also like to add that I will be heading back to Kansas City for 2 weeks starting on July 16th. I won't be able to run a show the night before, as I will be en route at 11:45 PM the previous night. I will be without internet while I'm down there, plus I will be working on bringing my beloved mate, Halfshell home with me while I'm down there. The show will return once again during its regular schedule on August 4th. So to recap, there will not be a show from Tuesday July 15th to Friday August 1st. The show will return on the 4th as per its regular schedule. Sorry for the show constantly going up and down this past month. Things do happen and they all seemed to happen right at the same time.

On another note, the very next broadcast of the Time Machine will involve a fund raiser to help raise the needed funds to help with the move. Halfshell is currently in a very unhealthy living establishment, and having lived there for a whole month, I can honestly say that the house is definitely not fit for anyone to live there. There is black mold all throughout the house, and the house itself is in disrepair to the point where it's next to condemnable. Having high blood pressure through the stress he endures there, plus bad asthma on top of dealing with black mold is a very lethal combination for Halfshell to have to live through. On top of all that, he also has little to no food in his house. By bringing him home to Columbus, he will be in a much safer and cleaner environment, he will be fed, and he will be well taken care of. Your donations and help will go for the cause of helping to bring him up. Listeners in Second Life can always donate as many Lindens as possible, while those having access to PayPal may send their donations that way. I will also be offering full sets of my CDs at a special discount rate only valid from July 1st through July 11th. Instead of the full set going for $50.00, I will offer them at $40.00. The CDs will also be personally signed. We will be working diligently to raise the needed funds to get Halfshell and his belongings to safety. Your donations will also help go toward keeping him in food until the day we move back to Columbus. Nothing is more important to me than knowing that my beloved mate is safe and taken good care of, and I know I can do that while he's here with me. What he cannot tolerate is his current living situation. It is very vital to get him out of there, and I will stop at nothing until I am able to bring him and his belongings to his rightful home here in Columbus. Thanks for your time in reading this and I will see you on the flip side when the show returns to the airwaves on Tuesday night!
