A return to personal posting

Is it just me or does the iTunes podcast logo remind you of Magneto as well?

When I restarted this blog at the beginning of the year I had intended to use this as a personal blog as well as kicking off the podcast properly.  As you will plainly be able to see by the fact that the whole homepage is filled with only the weekly podcast posts, that has kinda taken a backfoot over time.

So today I have decided to take the time to make a personal blog post and to give me a little bit of a push i am using a trick I saw on Lifehacker a while back. Using a program called focus booster I am writing this post with a 25 minute timer ticking away, whatever is written by the end of that timer is what my post will be.

Why, you may ask, would I want to do that? well for one simple reason only – If I can output one coherent post in 25 minutes then I have no reason to not do so more regularly in the future. 25 minutes is not too much time to put aside in an evening.

So, when coming up with a topic for this first attempt at this posting trial I was left with one key thing in mind and that was the podcast. Now as well as recording the weekly podcast I actually listen to quite a few, so today im going to give you a brief overview of some of the ones I listen too regularly. (more…)

Episode #18: Sometimes Gow doesn’t understand

This was exactly the look Gow gave me when I tried to explain the previous podcast title

Well for weeks now I have said that I should write these intros as soon as were done recording.

Well for once I have managed it, which is good as I really would have forgotten about the lemur.

This podcast was originally going to be titled ‘Double the Random’ as this week Gow had the same random word suggested twice.

However while we were listening to the break song, I set that and he stared at me like a confused lemur.

Fortunately you guys don’t have to be confused as everything we talked about is linked below.

Another regular feature got a revamp this week as well – the mid podcast songs. From here on in they will always be suggestions from listeners.

So if you have a suggestion for song to be included in the podcast then put it in the comments of this post or send them too @DrunkenGamer or @D_Gow . They will be put on the short-list and you will be mentioned in the podcast itself when played

Anyway enjoy this episode of the Drinky Talky Thing.
