The DrunkenGamers Drinky Talky Thing Episode #4

Yorkshire Puddings - The Ultimate Festival food

Well it may be late but it’s finally here, Episode 4 of the Drinky Talky Thing.

If you didn’t know that Gow, Myself & Craig were at Leeds Festival at the weekend when we would normally record this.

This time Craig (AKA TurkeySaladBoy) managed to join us for recording.

Things get a bit weirder with the extra person, but I’m sure you will all still enjoy it.

To make things a little more fun Gow did his random word thing again – and some of the suggestions were just impossible.

So without further padding, give it a listen

Here are some of the things we planned to talk about

The Sponsor
Clearly has to be The Yorkshire puddings at leeds festival – a festival food with no equal, with so many various uses and fillings that we had previously not imagined Read More

A Week In #DailySongs Podcast Episode 10

This is a Spork! It is the ultimate utensil.
This is a Spork! It is the ultimate utensil.

Well here we are again, I did say that this episode would be available faster than the others.

The reason for this is that my ‘Guests’, Craig & Gow, have pretty much become regular Co-Hosts.

While in many ways this is a good thing, it did mean that the balance between music and talk was getting very music heavy. In order to try and rectify this I made a slight change to the format.

What the three of us do best when were together and have beer to hand is talk, and having to stick to explaining all the #Dailysong’s was  putting a little too much structure in place.

Instead this week we took a look at the new articles on NewsLite.tv (http://newslite.tv/) and give our views on the stories. The #DailySong’s are still included, but only a selection picked at random.

Here is the result.

Its a bit messy, as its the first time we have done it this way. As a result comments are not only welcome, they would be really useful.

At one point we do discuss a story about a minture cannon, that really could do with looking at the video – that can be found at http://newslite.tv/2010/05/10/fully-working-mini-cannon-fits.html

As for the music, we would like to thank everyone that provided tracks to pick from by using the #DailySong hashtag on twitter. This weeks we included suggestions from @Nezerith, @AngelSmit & @AnjelusX

Anyway, I’ll leave it there

See you next week

A Week In #DailySongs Podcast Episode 9

Who lives in a pineapple under the sea...

Now normally I would not put two podcasts up on the same day, but I really wanted to get back up to date this time.

The reason for this is I’m planning to change-up the style of this podcast a little for future episodes.

In these podcasts so far we have recorded the audio between tracks in advance and then I have edited the tracks in afterwards. That is what causes the delays, if other things get in the way being a person project is the first thing to get pushed back.

However here is Episode 9, once again joining me for the podcast is Gow & Craig, thankfully a little more sober than last time. Not that this made them any easier to control.

Don’t take my word for it, listen for yourself

Now hopefully the new method will mean that this weeks upcoming episode will actually be out tomorrow evening.

See you then

A Week In #DailySongs Podcast Episode 8

My New Avatar
My new Avatar for the new Thirteen1 site

SOOO, Yes I know this is very late – but its been a very busy couple of weeks in my defence.

We launched the new Thirteen1 site finally, when your done listening to the podcast go check it out, http://www.thirteen1.com.

For a second week I had “help” recording the show, both Gow & Craig decided to call round to my flat this time and record in person.

This lead to yet another week where we ended up with technical issues. Despite all having separate mics, my pickup seems to have been a lot higher than everyone else’s. What this means is you may hear a bit of echo when there are others talking.

You may also be able to hear my wife, Jo & Craig’s girlfriend, Emma chatting away in the background – that’s how high mine managed to set itself.

Other than technical issue there was also the amusing task of trying to keep both Craig and Gow at least semi on track and under control, as they were already drunk before we started and I was drowsy due to cold remedies. Hence accidentally at the start saying this was Episode 9 :p

Anyway have a listen it’s rather amusing as a result.

Well I’ll cut the explanation there as I have to go edit Episode 9. That will be live in a couple of hours.

A Week In #DailySongs Podcast Episode 7

DrunkenGamer and TurkeySaladBoy
Myself & TurkeySaladBoy Rocking out on Rock Band a few months ago

So another week has rolled in and its time for me to do another round-up of the weeks #DailySong output.

This week however is a little different from all the ones that have gone before.

I started in last weeks podcast including guest tracks. This week I was going to include a track selected by Thirteen1 member Craig Albeck (AKA TurkeySaladBoy).

We decided that it would be a good idea to jump on skype and have him introduce the track himself, at which point Daniel Gowen (AKA Gow) decided he wanted to join in.

What follows is pretty much the unedited conversation – they hung around for the recording of the whole podcast and all the introductions. Apologies for the crackling at the start – Gow’s mic fucked up!

Play

As mad as it got, I actually prefer this format – It was a little bland with just myself doing the intros.

Next week I’ll bring them back for more madness but this time have the hardware set up in advance so we get better quality.

We should also be joined by at least one other member of the Thirteen1 Team as were planning to record our first magazine podcast directly afterwards.

Till Next Week.

A Week In #DailySongs Podcast Episode 6

Two Years of Thirteen1
Two years of Thirteen1 down - Hopefully many more to go!

Well its been an interesting week overall, and a nice mix of songs.

This weeks Episode also has the first guest track, as the #DailySong hashtag builds users on twitter I will include some other peoples tracks for variety.

As it was short notice so unlike the plan I couldn’t get the source of this weeks guest track to record an intro but I will work on that for next time.

This weeks Guest was a friend Jon Butterfield aka @Webdude75. So without further babbling here is this episode.

The other important factor this week was the launch of our second anniversary of Thirteen1.

For two years now we have created this magazine and its been a crazy ride and a steep learning curve, however I think as time has progressed we have really improved over this time.

Hell we have even improved dramatically since our first year.

To check out the latest issue over at http://www.thirteen1.com now – hopefully you will also get to see the new site as well 🙂

Till next week.
