R.I.P. Google Listen

Every Monday night TheCrypt holds it podcast which you can listen to live, but if youre one of those peoples that cant be around late nights on Monday then chances are you download the podcast and listen on your computer/tablet/mobile device etc. There are a number of apps that can do this, such as iTunes for iDevices, Mediamonkey for PC, and Google Listen for Android. Sadly today marks the discontinuation of Google Listen. Here’s a the official word from the G.

We launched Google Listen through Google Labs in August 2009, to give people a way to discover and listen to podcasts. However, with Google Play, people now have access to a wider variety of podcast apps, so we’ve discontinued Listen. People who have already installed the app can still use it, but after November 1, podcast search won’t function. You can access your podcast subscriptions in Google Reader in the “Listen Subscriptions” folder and download them from the Import/Export tab.

Although Google Listen is gone if you’re still a subscriber to our podcast via GL then we’ll still continue to drop on your mobile device weekly. For noobs picking up an Android phone or ones that weren’t aware of Google Listen or listening to podcasts via your phone, here are some alternatives….

BeyondPod (free/$6.99): Ive used this one before it does the trick but isnt the easiest to use.
Podder (free): Just downloaded this, I haven’t used it yet but reviews seem to be great and more favorable then BP.
Pocketcasts ($3): Can’t vouche personally but check it out.
Podkicker (free): Has a great search function, you might be able to find the HHH podcast on there.
DoggCatcher ($5): Supposedly the best podcast app for android.
DoubleTwist (free): Supposedly can do everything iTunes can do…
Stitcher (free): Supposedly really great app which can access lots of great podcasts.

There’s some suggestions for you’s some free and some paid (ballers). Any choice I’m sure will be a good one. Feel free to comment if you need any help or suggestions.

Action Bronson and Party Supplies present Blue Chips – live at #weRnyc (video)

Action hit me off with this video and some info about his FREE album he’s droppin’ with Party Supplies called Blue Chips, he’ll be droppin it via Complex/Reebok but no worries we’ll have it too. Blue Chips drops May 12th

Blue Chips is a project that allows me to give something back to all the people who have been supporting me during the last year. Party Supplies and myself linked up in the late fall and over the span of a few weeks created this project entirely off the cuff. We didn’t over think it, we just had fun making music with no pressures of making a “hit song”, clearing of samples or sales expectations. Thanks to the good people over at Reebok and our friends at Complex we are able to give it away to our fans for the nice price of Free.99. We look at this as a thank you of sorts to all the people who rock with us.

Rayman Origins

Well as I posted before I got an XBox 360 fairly recently and I got a great deal on a great game today that game is… YOU GUESSED IT! Rayman Origins this title is on every console and right now at Toys R Us it’s $19.99 the retail price is $59.99 I went to Best Buy which was closer and price matched for the 19.99 and bingo bango im back at the tepee  playing Rayman. The graphics are gorgeous, and the music is fun and entertaining and catchy as hell! The gameplay so far is pretty impressive and the controls are quite responsive. It’s also multiplayer (co-op) so you and the kiddos/friends/family can all play together under one roof like the good ol’ days! Get it while it’s cheap!

Xbox 360

Towards the end of the summer a terrible thing happened… I lost my internet connection… It didnt run away, I just couldn’t afford it anymore. While Fall drew closer I knew I’d need a new source of entertainment but what? This is when I bought an Xbox360 from a friend who gave me a deal on it with 1 controller and Halo Reach. I’m an old school gamer and the main system I had was a Wii which I waited in-line for all night when it dropped, only to feel disappointed shortly after initial launch due to the abundance of just trash games. My Wii has collected dust for years and it really only gets played maybe once or twice a year and then, there it sits, forgotten.

When I hooked up the Xbox which i only played once or twice prior to buying the system I was blown away by the great graphics and speed of which the games go. It was like Alice entering the rabbit hole just a whole new world. I’m not big on FPS (First Person Shooters) but I’m slowly adjusting because it seems that this is what the majority of games are now. I’ve had the 360 for a few months now and I’ve gone a bit crazy buying games off Amazon Warehouse and Gamefly among other sporadic deals here and there but I have yet to pay over $17 for a game and the cheapest games I’ve gotten hover around $3 or so and a handful of them I got for free.

My collection so far seems to be pretty good, I need a wireless adapter cuz I think I’ll be going LIVE this month do you guys know any other key games I should scoop at a cheap price? So far the 360 is bad ass and I feel like cornball that I’m this late to the party but fugg it atleast I showed up. I’m gonna try and report on some more gaming stuff since I’m not kinda into it and possibly post good deals from time to time.
