a Little Explanation behind the "ProjectMOS" Name

One of the most recent additions to the Dr. Glass DPM Podcast is the "ProjectMOS" track.  This was made for several reasons and mostly serves as an outlet for some of the smaller pieces that are produced.  Namely, short clips and snippets as a test render, proof of concept, or even lecture material.

Because this differes so much from what is normally produced and published for the podcast, it has typically been left out.  However, enough requests have shown interest in seeing these anyways.  So what was decided was to publish them without editing or even with out sound.
