interesting. when i click "create show", all the options are youtube stuff. 
so your station is youtube playlists?

i like your instructions on how to set up an analog station.

i've built a playlist feature into dbCinema, also. In dbCinema, a playlist 
is a sequence of BrushSets and Brushes. A BrushSet is a set of brushes. A 
Brush is a configuration of about 100 parameters. That can include a Google 
image search term, or a local folder of images, configuration of the type of 
images to be returned, if it's a Google image search. And configuration of 
the type and shape of the brush. And the path it follows. And much else.

The resulting playlists will play a particular brush or brushset for a 
configurable length of time and then move on to the next BrushSet or Brush. 
It's ambient video, painterly video. It's not regular video at all.

There is this whole empire of representation in broadcast media that is so 

Still, I enjoyed some of the funny Star Wars stuff I saw on omgimon.tv. Nice
