Story of the day:  I'm short and hobit-esque.  That's cute right? 

Joke of the day:  mmm....ha ha ha ha. Sorry. *blush* I am learning to tell jokes. You'd think this would be a skill I developed say 1000 years ago.  Better late than never? Oh help us all.

Recommendation of the Week!!! 

Road Tripping Balls!  Live the road trip of @Skydart (Chloe Dystra of Just Cos) and @Nerdist as they head to TN!! Oh the zany adventures they have had! 

http://youtu.be/1Zo-iFA7T0Y?t=3m45s  This is the latest episode at the point where the now famous bad timing goat shows up!

GET WELL LARRY MILLER....or I'll be forced to tell more jokes!  Can the world deal with that??

RIP Greg Ham of Men at Work

The toughest part of this whole process has been the lack of feed back.  I have been trying to tweak the podcast by what I feel I like.  The problem is that I don't like listening to me.  So it is basically all shit to me.  I finally received some feed back.  The consensus is that I start off well then babble.  So this week I took a deep breath and really became the producer of my own podcast.  I hope you enjoy the results.

Recommendations:It's a double animation recommendation week!! The hard work of both groups of people create the awesome art that is animation.  You really cannot have one without the other.  If you are an animation (cartoon and anime) junkie like me, both are well worth your time. 
  1. Rob Paulsen's Talkin' Toons http://robpaulsenlive.com/category/podcasts/
      * Voice Actors
  2. Clay Kaytis' The Animation Podcast http://animationpodcast.com/
      * The guys that draw the characters. I forgot about this podcast until I started listening to Rob Paulsen's podcast. Welcome back old friend!

Here is a link to the article I wrote:

Get Well Larry Miller!

In this episode I will talk about:

  • Larry J. Miller! He was on an episode of "You Made it Weird" He also has his weekly podcast called "This Week with Larry Miller." He had a bad accident the other week. He is expected to fully recover. But they did re-post an episode this week. It is a good episode so go take a listen. But get well soon!!!!
  • My podcast is the red headed step child if Nerdist got it on with This week with Larry Miller and enjoyed a burrito afterwards. Now that's an image. Ok, this is only in my dreams but maybe one day? I'll be funny and inspirational but hopefully not bald. mmm...I'm going with silly with a touch of whimsy. Clearly I miss but...gotta keep trying.
  • It has been a tough week for everyone so I want to look at the positive stuff that happened.
  • I totally am not upset about being stood up by Nerdist for the 4th time. They did eventually reschedule but I'm really irritated. I do understand
  • Kickstarter is awesome. Both the projects I backed got funded! I donated to the Inspector Spacetime project. Also the Zack meets the Zombie book got funded!! It was tense there for a while.
  • I friended Ron Paulsen on FB. Honestly I rather he follow my twitter. I do more funny stuff there. NARF!
  • Recommendations of the week: Check out Scott Sigler on Nerdist! I've been following him on and off since 2005. If you like him then might I recommend Mark Yoshimoto Nemcoff . His stories are really cool. I would also recommend Mike Bennett "One Among the Sleepless" is soooo good!!

I end the podcast by attempting Larry Miller's brilliant pod closer

Thank you for listening.  Seize YOUR burrito!

Opening and closing songs are from the 2008 URI Ram Band. Opening song is "Get it on" and closing theme is "Voodoo"

In this episode I talk about the comedy central taping.  I got hang out with Gillian.  We saw the show twice.  Chris said hi to us.  I got a Chris Hardwick hug (tm pending).

I also met Chloe Dystra.  I was luke warm in my description of her.  The gentlemen around us asked "Who is that hot babe."  I told them it is the game reviewer and cosplay specialist Chloe Dystra.  She is very tall.  She was wearing heels.  I was not.

Ok, I'm hobbit sized so EVERYONE is taller than I am!!!  I get this. Nevertheless..she is very tall, young and beautiful. 

The portable recorder I am going to order is the Zoom H4N: http://www.amazon.com/Zoom-Handy-Portable-Digital-Recorder/dp/B001QWBM62/ref=lh_ni_t

I finally start reading from this awesome script.  It is epic.

I'm still waiting on tickets for CH's show.  Hope's spring eternal. 

My iTunes feed is still not fixed.  I think I will just delete and make a new on if this issue isn't resolved by next week.
