There is a time and a place....

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 (NRSVCE) states:

For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:

a time to be born, and a time to die;
a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;
a time to kill, and a time to heal;
a time to break down, and a time to build up;
a time to weep, and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
a time to throw away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
a time to seek, and a time to lose;
a time to keep, and a time to throw away;
a time to tear, and a time to sew;
a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
a time to love, and a time to hate;
a time for war, and a time for peace.

As was written in the Ancient Near East, there is a time in which to keep silence. This is one of those times. We apologize for any inconvenience and regrettably note that it may be some time until the program's return.

For everything there is a season but we just happen to be in a very wrong sort of one.

Locating old podcast episodes

I've been away at a job with an employer that is in the middle of a crisis. The crisis has been getting worse and frankly I have not been keeping on top of much of anything. When alternative download formats for podcasts were being rolled out, Archive.org was used for storage. Essentially that acts as our backup. Since the iTunes Music Store has dropped the podcast listing for the time being, users looking for old episodes can visit Archive.org to find more.

As to rebooting the podcast(s), we need to take things one step at a time. I need to ride out the crisis with my current employer as it is. Whether or not my current employer survives the crisis is thankfully not up to me.

A Renegade Broadcast

There are no show notes yet somehow this became produced for release. While an MP3 version can be downloaded directly, versions encoded in Free Lossless Audio Codec, Ogg Vorbis, and Speex are also available.

Found Audio: Music Along The River 2014

Where is the podcaster? Apparently he is set to appear in something set to air on WKKY-FM...

Caught Up By Circumstances

Due to spending 11 hours visiting an excellent facility outside Ashtabula County operated by the Cleveland Clinic Foundation and hideous winter weather increasing travel time in terms of additional hours, there is no episode for release on Wednesday. The Air Staff of Erie Looking Productions apologizes for this inconvenience. The second episode originally slated for Wednesday release will in fact be released later this week.

In the meantime, we suggest enjoying an episode or two of the 2013 reboot of The Tomorrow People that is available online.

LISTen: An LISNews.org Program -- Episode #263

This week we have an essay on information ethics, use the word "lethal" more times than usual in this program, and present a news miscellany that seems biased towards libraries news out of the United Kingdom.

LISTen: An LISNews.org Program -- Episode #261

This week's episode discusses election matters by starting with Lafourche Parish and then digging deeper into why the case of Ashtabula County District Library touched upon by INFOdocket is a bit more serious than it seemed at first glance. The in-episode audio quite incorrectly identifies this episode as #260 which was last week. This is the sixth anniversary of production, though.

LISTen: An LISNews.org Program -- Episode #254

This week we focus on a very particular part of the potential fall-out of the currently brewing fiscal emergency for the federal government in the United States.

The President's Weekly Address and the Republican Response are both replayed to help provide context as to the struggle leading up to the possible lapse in federal spending authority on October 1st at midnight.
