About 3/4 through so far.

The Legend of Chun-li is so bad it's...well bad...but it's funny bad. Worth watching for Chris Klein's overacting.



Got the idea for the DW logo all thought out. Just got to finish some paying work first...unless you know, you guys pay me....

Links mentioned in the podcast:

A report on working conditions in a Chinese factory making Microsoft mice

I called Jeff Zucker an "embolitic coprophage." Wikipedia entries for embolism and coprophagia.

Also, why oh why do I sound least like Keith Olbermann when I'm trying my very best to imitate him? Acting fail. I'm going to have to work on that. Fortunately, you guys aren't going to have to put up with that for the next podcast.

Realize this is a bit late, but I can be there between 7:30 and 8:00 if you guys need someone. Have to attend some dinner thing tonight, but will try my best to get out earlier (that is, if anyone else is able to tonight)

Default Nerds on the Rocks/Dual Wielding Feedback Thread

With the site somewhat up and functional, I thought it was best to stop bogging down the forums with like 2-3 threads a week dealing with the podcasts.

This will serve as a general feedback thread for both podcasts.

And once we get further in the week will merge the other feedback threads.

Quote:
In this special, mega-sized Nerds on the Rocks/Dual Wielding podcast, the Nerds and the Gunslingers combine forces to talk about the biggest event in gaming, e3. They give their thoughts on Project Natal, PS Move, the 3DS, Zelda and so much more. So pull up a stool, grab a nice cold one (hopefully on the rocks) and enjoy this very special podcast.

This is the first episode in .m4a format with chapter divisions and everything. There should be a link in this thread, but BAB has apparently decided to make you click through to the Nerds on the Rocks website to get it. It also should be going up on the podcast feed whenever somebody gets around to it. Please check it out and let us know if it works for you because we may stick with it for future podcasts.

I took this opportunity to introduce you all to some of my favorite songs from OCRemix. I'll have a track listing later today.

You should really work out who talks when. It was a bit chaotic this episode, and I felt some participants didn't get their say.
I'm at 1/3 right now. I'm doing two or three things at the same time, so it's a bit hard to follow everything.

Well to be fair, its a bit chaotic because we had 5 people on, which probably won't happen too often.

On the same hand, it makes the conversation seem more naturally when people are talking over each other/to each other. As opposed to, you speak, stop, someone else speaks, stops, responses.
