Holy crap! We have a working RSS feed! You can totally subscribe to us on iTunes now!

Bono and Oprah are psyched

Hey Broadcast listeners, David Hulford here with some good news! Despite the obstacle of not knowing what an RSS feed was as of 24 hours ago, and the fact that I'm still not 100% on what an RSS feed is even now notwithstanding, we totally have an RSS feed! It works! I used it to subscribe to our podcast on iTunes, and it totally downloaded the latest episode right into the damnable thing, with our logo and everything!

I tell you this not only because I am super excited to have successfully idiot-savanted my way through its creation, but because now you can subscribe to us on iTunes too! It's so easy that even a guy who isn't quite sure what an RSS feed is can do it, I'm telling ya! Here, I'll walk you through it, first let me figure out how to include the HTML code in order to--


RSS Feed Orange Box Thingy

That familiar looking guy right there is what we in the business of not knowing proper Internet terminology call a "RSS feed orange box thingy" and is extremely useful! Clicking on it will allow you to not only subscribe to our podcast feed on iTunes, but on Google Pages or Podnova or Pageflakes or all sorts of RSS feed catcher things I've never heard of. So click on it and you'll find yourself on a page listing all those options and more! ...Anyway, for purposes of this explanation let's assume you just wanna use iTunes because you aren't some crazy Pageflake using weirdo. Click on "Add to iTunes," which will launch iTunes, (assuming you have it) then a whole bunch of magical computery stuff will happen and BOOM, there we are on your iPod! Easy, no?

So anyway, if you aren't at a place where you can do it now, and let's say for some reason Windsor goes into some sort of blog entry writing frenzy and pops out like fifty updates, you can always find our little orange friend just under our new snazzy logo on the right column of the page.

Next up: Figuring out how to get our humble moon podcast into the iTunes store proper...

Two Orbital Rotational Platforms and a Microphone

Hey there Broadcast listeners, intrepid Lunar Media team member David Hulford here, doing a bit of moon-blogging ("moon-blogging" is Internet slang for "Blogging on the Moon"). This is my first entry, as Lunar Media team member John Windsor beat me to it, and I thought I'd use the opportunity to tell you a little bit about not only myself, but our mighty fine Internet-radio-program. ("Internet-radio-program" is Internet slang for "podcast")

So how does one go about introducing themselves? With the basics, I suppose. My full name is Davetholomew W. Hulford (the "W" stands for "Westminster") and I was born with a full head of hair in Philadelphia in 1985. Then for the next eighteen years or so, not much happened.

Windsor and I met in our senior year at Penncrest High School (Go Warhawks!) in 2003.We were both involved heavily in the arts, and soon collaborated on a short film entitled "Final Project" which was called "bold" and "visionary" and promptly lead to my being suspended.

Upon graduating in 2004, I went on to do various writing projects and artsy things, most notably a long stint as a set decorator and mask-master at a local college.

Then in 2009 Windsor and I were sent to the moon by a government program studying the effect of near weightlessness on lazy people. Soon after arriving, before we were assigned our moon-jobs, we met Kudos, our hyper intelligent dolphin side-kick and accomplished poet in his own right. It quickly became clear that Windsor had a knack for communicating with this noble sea-mammal, and I had a knack for communicating with Windsor, so our roles were soon set.

A year or two after our lunar relocation, we began seriously discussing the possibility of starting a podcast, initially coming up with (and quickly dismissing) fanciful concepts and premises. ("Like, what if we acted like we still lived on Earth, and like we pretended to have a dog that was really good at poker named Rosebud?") Soon though, we just decided to go with what we know: Movies, music, books, video games and television, plus life on the moon, and marine biology.

We quickly cut the intensively researched and exhaustively detailed marine biology section of the show (Kudos was saddened), and we were left with what you know and love as the Lunar Media Broadcast today!

Anyway, thanks for checking out our companion blog, and we hope you keep checking out our weekly Broadcast.

David Hulford

p.s. We're still figuring out how to do all of the podcasty stuff, like RSS feeds and stuff, not to mention our eventual hope to get on iTunes, so if you know about any of this stuff, or of someone who does, please drop us a line and let us know at a minimum what we're doing wrong, and ideally what we should be doing to do it right, cause our lead web designer is a dolphin who neglected to mention to us that he studied web design through Devry University in like 1998 and hasn't had any experience since. Thanks!

Episode Two


In the second episode of the Lunar Media Broadcast Windsor, Hulford, and their dolphin sidekick Kudos discuss the Green Hornet, Darren Daulton, The Kinks, and the incredible usefulness of Moon Shoes for those actually on the moon.

Episode One


The inaugural episode of Lunar Media Broadcast, where Hulford and Windsor discuss Thor, L.A. Noire, and the late, debatably great Michael Chrichton with their dolphin pal Kudos.

Hello People of Earth!!!

Windsor here!  That's John Windsor of Media, Pennsylvania, coming to you from our undisclosed location on the moon.  Let's jump right into this! Here are my likes and dislikes:

-Soft pretzels
-naked ladies

-The Red Hot Chili Peppers
-Pearl Jam


     Any crap, part of our job here on the moon is to broadcast weekly and update the world on how things are going, so myself and my moon friend David Hulford, along with our trusty hyper-intelligent dolphin pal Kudos, have decided to do our jobs in the form of a podcast.  In said podcast we will bring you the latest in media and entertainment stuff such as movies and video games, and other such things we are interested in at the moment.
     Moon time can be slightly different than Earth time sometimes, but we promise to keep our weekly podcast as weekly and up to date as possible, because really, what else is there to do on the moon?
     Hulford and I will regularly make our way to our moon theater to bring you the scoop on the latest movies, and even some older movies as well. Kudos will chime in here and there with his hyper-intelligent dolph-pinions and even share some of his beautiful poetry from time to time. Pretty much your standard things-we-like kind of podcast with a half drunken zero gravity twist.

     Surf's up, motherfuckers!!  We're gonna get you wet!!  Take it...
