Make beautifully visual playlists mixing Youtube videos, Soundcloud tracks and online mp3s
As radio struggles with its place in a mobile world and as podcast creation leaps upwards, a new kind of playlist is needed. One that allows – with both audio & video – anyone to combine their passions in one place. Music, podcasts, listen again radio, interviews, favourite concerts – all collected together into a collection with some of that ‘specialness’ & visual flair albums (and books) used to excite us with.
So we’ve built the first iteration of a new kind of playlist – Adio Collections. Our Chrome Extension lets you grab Youtube videos, Soundcloud tracks and any online MP3’s exactly at the point you stumble across them. Adio wraps both audio & video together into a highly visual package, with a coherent interface designed for mobile & made for sharing. We’ve added Dropbox upload for teams, Flickr search for better covers and an Adobe online image editor for filters & enhancement.

Robert Vaughn, the urbane actor who starred as the American spy Napoleon Solo on the slick 1960s NBC series The Man From U.N.C.L.E., died November 11th 2016. He was 83.
Vaughn, who received an Oscar nomination for playing Paul Newman’s hard-drinking buddy Chet in the 1959 drama The Young Philadelphians, died of acute leukemia.
At The Story Collider, you’ll hear from scientists about all the times things went wrong, and occasionally right, in their labs, but you’ll also hear from people who haven’t had a formal connection to science since high school. We have physicists, comedians, neuroscientists, writers, actors, doctors, and many, many more telling their story. Some are heartbreaking; some are hilarious. They’re all true, and all, in one way or another, are about science.
There are around 5,000 species of lizard around the world. Delve into the evolution and biology of these fascinatingly diverse reptiles. Featuring clips from Dragon Island, Namibia’s Wild Wonders, and Venom Islands.
“I wanted to give people literal and figurative snapshots,” Cumming told the New York Public Library’s Paul Holdengraber at the first event of the library’s Live at the NYPL series. Probably the most touching of these is a shot of himself with his grandmother. On the day the photograph was taken, Cumming said, his grandmother defended him from relatives who wanted to tease him about his newly bleached blond hair. “If I was young,” she said, “I’d be a freak like Alan too.”
The Graveyard Book begins, as so many children’s novels seem to do these days, with a multiple murder. A mysterious character known only as “the man Jack” sneaks into a family home and kills mum, dad and older sister. When he reaches the nursery, however, the family’s two-year-old son is missing, having scooted out mischievously into the night. The man Jack, whose silence and hunting skills seem not quite of this world, follows the scent of the boy to a nearby disused graveyard. 8 hours of Neil reading it live…
WHILE it’s not true that 15 percent of all Internet traffic is cat-related, as the Friskies cat food company asserted in 2013, it does make a convincing urban legend.
“For some reason, cats took off, and then it’s this avalanche that just sort of keeps piling up,” said Jason Eppink, the curator of How Cats Took Over the Internet. “People on the web are more likely to post a cat than another animal, because it sort of perpetuates itself. It becomes a self-fulfilling prophesy.”
There is very little else to say about this Collection other than it is safe for work (if you have headphones on)…
The Manchester rockers’ debut brought them teen adoration and topped the charts. As they prepare to release their epic second album, frontman Matt Healy talks stardom, drugs and Taylor Swift.
Movies are great, except for when they suck. Sometimes, even great movies suck… you just don’t realize it until some asshole loser points out all the flaws he can find. At Cinema Sins, we’re dedicated to pointing out all the sins we can find in movies, some big and some small. Some are downright microscopic.
Icke’s mission to promote “infinite consciousness” started badly when the former BBC Grandstand presenter called a press conference in 1991 and described himself as a “son of the Godhead”. When asked subsequently on Terry Wogan’s chat show if he was claiming to be the Son of God, he did not disagree. Intense public derision followed but Icke has since become a prolific author, lecturer and anti-hero of alternative media. Although still as mad as a hatter, you can make your own mind up watching this Collection.
Well, this is not my Collection to talk about but it was one of my high spots of Audioboo in seeing Imogen using it as it was first conceived of: an inspirational trip to China and capturing the sounds that otherwise we’d leave behind.
Much of the appeal of a Bethesda game lies in creating your own adventure in the enormous spaces they provide, but Fallout 4’s many depths are poorly served by the tutorials – even central mechanics are explained with cursory text windows, soon forgotten, or sometimes never touched on at all.
Consequently, some of this world’s real magic can only be found by poking around. Here are some tips about where to look, starring our own character – who, entirely coincidentally, resembles Jeremy Corbyn.
In this Adio Collection, we have gathered together from many places audio & video of Neil’s readings - a bleary-eyed Jabberwocky in the woods near his home, Click Clack the Rattle Bag from the New York Public Library, the Hugo Award winning A Study in Emerald short story and much more.
Sit back & enjoy a special 3 hours in Neil’s company.
Way back in the early 2000’s, Brian Blessed recorded a voiceover for an advert for an old company of mine, PlayJam. For some reason, whether vocal exercises or not, he left us with a selection of these single words and an existentialist flurry of a descent into the recesses of his consciousness…
Although a fan of BBC Radio 4, this Collection was made to see how easy it would be to create something even more listenable for a long car journey or two…
Josh Oppenheimer’s film The Act of Killing is an examination of the Indonesian mass killings of 1965-66, in which between 500,000 and 1 million people died. The Act of Killing is truly unlike any other documentary film. Oppenheimer identified several of the killers from 1965 and convinced them to make a movie about the killings. The actual film costs money on Youtube but this will give you a good idea of what you pay to see.
