He's now working with Spartan Youth Radio to tell all bullied ogres, trolls, gremlins and other "monsters" that IT GETS BETTER.

Imagine an alternate version of history where plastic was never invented but we had the technology of today and the aesthetic sensibilities of a century ago.  Computers would be encased in wood and brass, we'd be travelling by airship and clothing would be made of leather, lace, cotton and hemp instead of rayon and polyester.  Music would be music, not commercialized clones.

Abney Park embraces the Streampunk lifestyle in their clothers (do not call them costumes), their musical instruments and their lyrics.  Hitting over 90,000 hits on a single YouTube video, Abney Park may not be mainstream but they are followed by fans across the globe.

"Espanola, Ontario is different than Espanola, California but I like it here. The people are nice and I cannot get enough of the natural beauty. If I am ever terminated as governer of the great state of California, I might consider buying some land here," said Mr. Schwarzenegger.

Students were thrilled. "This is incredible! I mean, Arnold Schwarzenegger in Espanola? He's, like, my favourite movie star and I was really excited to meet him," said Joss Maguth, a grade 12 student and aspiring actor. Grade 11 student Chad Boursay was execting more. "He looks totally different up close. I was expecting the Terminator but he's just a normal guy. A little bigger. A little harder to understand with the accent, but still pretty normal. He could be one of my friends."

Students at Espanola High School gathered in the Spartan Youth Radio to watch live CBC streaming of the Presidential Inauguration of Barack Obama, the 44th President of the United States of America. Though the students are proud Canadians, they shared their views on what is already a pivotal point in their shared history. Mr. Stewart shares his ideas on his vision of Canadian Prime Minister who also happens to be First Nations, Inuit or Metis.

If you would like to skip the speech and go straight to the student's response, fast forward to approximately 19:43.

Musical Stew 3 - Surf Tunes!

2008-12-18
Length: 16s

Surf music is much more than Jan and Dean or the Beachboys...it's a genre of music that lets loose, has a sense of humour and riffs off a lot of pop culture references.

Spartan Youth Radio's Mister Stew takes you on a journey from Denver to Finland, from Tennessee to Britain to bring you some hot beach music.

Pop out a lawn chair, open up a lemonade, take off your shoes and sit back for five incredible surf tunes. If you close your eyes tight you might even think you're driving an opentopped muscle car down an oceanside highway in California.

8 Bit Chipper Channel Episode 1: Fresh Cartridge!

2008-11-20
Length: 19s

As music gets more and more heavily produced, there's a growing group of artists who are experimenting with technology from the primitive early days of gaming.  8-bit can refer to a style of electornic inspired by the sound of old computer consoles from the 8 bit era of video games.  This music will often reflect sounds from technology that is seen as primitive or "outdated" such as the Game Boy, Atari and Activision systems and home made synthesizers.

DJ Anonymity (I hope I spelled that correctly) brings you some incredible retro-inspired music with new twists.  Take a time trip back to the 80s with FRESH CARTRIDGE, the first in a series called 8 BIT CHIPPER CHANNEL.

Length: 2s

From craphound.com:

Marcus, a.k.a “w1n5t0n,” is only seventeen years old, but he figures he already knows how the system works–and how to work the system. Smart, fast, and wise to the ways of the networked world, he has no trouble outwitting his high school’s intrusive but clumsy surveillance systems.

But his whole world changes when he and his friends find themselves caught in the aftermath of a major terrorist attack on San Francisco. In the wrong place at the wrong time, Marcus and his crew are apprehended by the Department of Homeland Security and whisked away to a secret prison where they’re mercilessly interrogated for days.

When the DHS finally releases them, Marcus discovers that his city has become a police state where every citizen is treated like a potential terrorist. He knows that no one will believe his story, which leaves him only one option: to take down the DHS himself.

The McGowan family consists of two parents, and seven boys - no daughters. And while Megan remembers all of the boys as being uber brats, she never expected them to grow into total hotties. Total hotties whom she's sharing a bathroom with. But Megan never realized that infiltrating a family of guys would lead her to find out so many strange quirks about all of them. And leave her crushing on more than one.

Now Megan has to try and fight her romantic feelings, communicate with Miller - one of the boys who happens to have Asperger's Syndrome, a type of Autism - and survive the McGowan household. Otherwise, she'll be headed to South Korea, where she'll have to wear a uniform to school."
