Absinthe Affair: Evolution!
The Hogmanay edition of the Absinthe Affair will be the last show broadcast via Mixlr and available via the embedded media players on the Absinthe Affair and Steampunkery websites. While this is mainly due to Mixlr screwing with their iPad/Desktop apps and making them pretty much unusable for what I want to do – Evolution of the format of the show is long overdue and so this seems like a good time to make changes.

The idea behind these changes is to make the Absinthe Affair a real community where listeners can feel they are part of the show and are free to relax for a couple of hours each week – Far far away from the world and its problems and infuriations.

After a short break the show will return at the start of February at its usual 8pm Tuesday evening slot but will be broadcast live via a stand alone media player from Backpack Studio. Listeners can tune in directly via the link to the media player provided in the weekly event hosted by the show’s @AbsintheAffair Facebook Page – Where listeners can Q&A with guests, make requests and dedications, chat and share news, events and information.

Founder and host of the Steampunk Almanac – Atticus Oldman is an artist, designer and digital educator based in the west of Edinburgh. A life long passion for victorian art and culture combined with a flare for the theatrical and creative eventually developed into in the establishment of a number of projects under the title of the Steampunk Almanac Of Atticus Oldman.

A core element of Atticus’s work is to encourage the expanding list of outstandingly diverse steampunk themed bands, musicians and musical performers to include the north of the UK in their tour arrangements. To further assist this ambition – Atticus has embarked on a mission to promote Steampunk music, arts and events to a wider audience via the digital airways by way of ‘The Absinthe Affair’ – A two hour aether-broadcast recorded in a lost location deep within the wynds and vennels of the living heart of Clockwork Caledonia’s ancient capital Auld Aether Reekie.
