I'm Uncle D.L. and I... HATE... SNOW!








I could elaborate on the title this week... but I'm sure most of you know EXACTLY how I feel about the subject.

If this week's Classic Encore episode seems like it pops up a LOT, that's because it's one of our most popular request items.

Volume 11 was the very first of our "Remastered-With-Bonus-Tracks" episodes - the music was recycled from our mostly unheard debut installment - we added 5 bonus songs and some new breaks & features to bring the run-time up to 2 hours for syndication purposes.   VHUS was still finding its footing 11 episodes in... but we still like this one as much as our listeners seem to.

What occurred June 11th, 2014?   NIGHTWISH!  Stephen Kings' autograph: An ineffective aphrodisiac.  TRANSATLANTIC!  Why is The Devil ass-deep in ducks?  WITCHCRAFT!  Too old to bang my head, too young to die.  PURSON!    Money Laundering 101.    AVANTASIA!      Saint Vitus' Dance: A brief history.  GRAVEYARD!   Plus more blacklight-fueled prog rock, metal, comedy and classic rock obscura.  JOIN US!

VHUS: Proud to still have listeners in 52 Shithole countries!








For the record: I have several friends (and a few listeners) in Norway.   And almost every one of them considers the United States Of America a shithole.  With skyrocketing taxes and all-but-unaffordable medical costs leading a LONG list...  I'm hard-pressed to disagree with them.

Any chance Uncle could relocate?   The way things are going here - a LOT of us would like a new flag to salute.   We're not ALL racist dickheads.

If not Norway... Finland?   Sweden?   Denmark?   Poland?    Any takers?

-----------------------------------

As promised, Pod-O-Matic's data fairies have dropped off a fresh (free) basket of bandwidth.   And with this comes the long-demanded return of a long-absent VHUS Classic:

We recycled the music for VHUS 45 - Here's the 2014 original containing vintage rants & raves the vast majority of you have NEVER heard!

I got The Flu for Christmas. And I couldn't fucking exchange it!!






Welcome to 2018!!   I hope everyone had a reasonably good holiday.

Mine sucked.   Santa brought me a nice fat dose of THE FLU (the bastard even delivered it early) and I am STILL coughing up green crude oil 2 weeks later.

Our next Pod-O-Matic bandwidth injection comes next weekend, and with it: The long-buried VHUS Volume 5, unavailable since 2014.    Love a good rant?  v.5 contains a two-parter based on my personal experiences in the land of internet dating.   (More dating dementia will follow in volumes 6 & 7).

In the meantime, I still have some traffic left, so...

 
What occurred May 28th, 2014?   AGENTS OF MERCY!   OMG! My neighbor is a hooker!   ROYAL THUNDER! Listener Feedback: Metal wardrobe stereotypes rebuffed!   IRON MAIDEN!    The Devil's Mother-In-Law!    PREMIATA FORNERIA MARCONI!    Would Uncle rather have The Spud or The Hose?    LEAVES' EYES!    Cookie monster vocals: A necessary evil?    PINEAPPLE THIEF!

My Favorite Sci-Fi Flick? The Earth Dies Streaming!!








I'm a busy bastard this week, so I'll make this quick.

The download drought will end Wednesday, December 13th.   This will be accompanied by a fresh cycle of Classic Encore episodes, starting with VHUS v.8.

(To those of you who keep requesting Volumes 1 through 7... Sorry, never gonna happen.)

In the meantime:  STREAMING ONLY is STILL available via the POM VHUS home page and through all Pod-O-Matic mobile apps.

 
  






And lest I forget: The VHUS MIXCLOUD page is also open for streaming!







Sorry for the inconvenience.   (I'm becoming more and more convinced it was all an act of industrial sabotage.)

Progress Report: 
Work has resumed (slowly) on the VHUS DROPBOX DEPOSITORY.

Okay, Who Ate All The Damned Bandwidth?!?



Remember back when I casually mentioned that once VHUS retired to our little free site in the country, there might be a slight possibility that our meager bandwidth ration could be exhausted long before the month was up - leaving listeners unable to download classic episodes...?

Amazingly, that very thing has happened, largely due to a RECORD-BREAKING number of downloads over the holiday weekend.    Totally unexpected (though a tiny bit suspicious)!   

As a result, anybody visiting our Pod-O-Matic home page will be unable to download episodes* until VHUS bandwidth resets on December 13th.

Yes, it's a pisser.    (It might also be an act of sabotage by the competition, who can say?)

* UPDATED Addendum 11-30-2017: STREAMING ONLY is still available via the website and all Pod-O-Matic mobile apps.

Soooo... good thing we kept our MIXCLOUD page active.   No downloading there either, but there is MUCH streaming goodness available for all our new friends.  As well as THREE freshly-recycled episodes.

Looks like I'd better quit dragging my feet on that proposed VHUS DROPBOX DEPOSITORY, huh??

Hope you all had a good holiday.   I survived, but barely.
