welcome to renegade radio, we hope you enjoy your stay

welcome to renegade radio, we hope you enjoy your stay
if you stay around and relevant long enough, even your own history page becomes outdated. that's what is happening to us here at renegade but this is good. damn good. it means we're picking up steam and out of the ashes of busted attempts by others, we're still growing. we'll face that hurdle ahead of how to pay our BMI fees soon enough, we hope. you see, the sooner we're paying those fees the sooner our own "relevance" takes it up another level. it's a problem that isn't going away and as we continuet to grow, we'll be facing it like other sites who've tried and looks like failed. speaking sp...

offline, holler at the iceberg - explained

here at renegade we've gone through more players than any man, woman or child should have to go through. we've been searching for the perfect one that fits and plays everywhere and for the love of midget sex to people with short attention spans, there just are not many out there. the one we have now is fantastic but not as easy to configure as i'd like. oh, it would be if i did it every day but face it, we don't change the stream provider very often. until now. basically what this message means is that our server hosting the stream isn't getting the data so no, you can't listen to the stream u...

excuse me, mr president. we are not safer today than yesterday

excuse me, mr president. we are not safer today than yesterday
over the years our president has come on tv time and again to tell you we are safe. the bad guys are not going to get us in our sleep. because of his efforts we've not had attacks in our country and he will continue to ensure we do not. this was stressed recently in his state of the union address. really?  does anyone really think the world is safer? i don't. while not the entire fault of obama, his actions to seem to divide more than heal. his policy, certainly not traditional in the terms of making people safer. how do these things just off the top of my mind make us safer? for gun cont...

millennials killed the radio star

millennials killed the radio star
the sad part is, most of them won't even get this reference. recently an older article came out where the writer was pumping his chest proclaiming that his generation killed the music industry. a lot of words came to mind but all them were after a healthy bout of laughter from the headline alone. after reading the first paragraph it was painfully obvious they were referring to the RIAA's business model that yes, is in fact 100% dead. but the millennials didn't have jack shit to do with that death. as soon as mp3's hit the public web it was game over. it was only a matter of time before file sh...

shit, 9 days into the year, changes already

and i gotta admit, i feel kinda "on the edge" when i can start my headline w/profanity.  :) changes so far are not major but they are in fact, changes. we dropped the old chatroom because as it was functional, we're after a little bit more than that in the coming months to this entire year. the most notable change to date is this chatroom bit. you see, we found chatwee that allows 3 social logins and we don't have to maintain a userbase OR make you create yet another online account. let's face it, the fun of that wore off 16,391 accounts ago, right? ALL HAIL SINGLE SIGN ON!!!! and there w...

gearing up for 2016 - yep. that's what we're doing

we've got some cool plans for 2016 and want to thank everyone, again, for sticking with us while we grow and continue to make listening to our music easier for you. we've got at least one person to add on board who is kinda family already, and we'll be revamping the Long Island scene soon so keep an eye out there. for our site, we'll have a new 24x7 cloud server by the start of the year, 1st week is our goal. how will you know? hopefully you won't tell other than the music has been updated.  :)  shows are dropping to 2 hours quite a bit as people are more focused on better music, not...

Harley, fence repairs, and $350

Harley, fence repairs, and $350
Funny how things work sometimes. This bit of odd humor that I can’t make a pop tart moment but however, the timing is still impeccable and not at all planned. There are funny parts to this, and there’s a few tear jerking moments. In the end, I just had to be glad it was over. Well almost. My gates still need to be fixed so they shut first. But I jump too far ahead. Many months ago I decided after 18 years it’s time to replace my falling off gutters and get the house repainted. Go through the motions, find the contractors, and ok the project. Normal enough and happens every day in this country....

Si vis pacem, para bellum

Si vis pacem, para bellum
Whenever you start quoting latin, you know you’re quoting some old OLD verbiage. This statement in fact is found in Book 3 of Latin author Publius Flavius Vegetius Renatus tract De Re Militari, although similiarly found in earlier works such as Platos Nomoi. By now you are either totally confused as to where this is going, or you know at least a little latin and have a pretty good idea. Peace. We all want it. The liberals and progressives, the conservatives and religious people. Well, most religions. It’s something dreamed about since the dawn of time and likely even before Italians started so...
