Drinky Talky Thing 2011 #10

Spot the Batman, win a prize!

I have to admit that this is absolutely the last thing I expected to be posting this week was this – Welcome to the 10th Episode of the Drinking Talky Thing!!

I knew it would happen but it has only been 10 weeks since we decided to restart the podcast & the episode count at the same time.

But shockingly we have managed to keep recording for 10 weeks and I am now galvanised to continue – we made double figures there is no way this will be anything less that weekly from here on in (even if Gow has to record it solo at some point)

Well without further stalling for layout reasons here is the latest episode of the podcast

Drinky Talky Thing 2011 #4

If anyone knows where I can get some of this beer, please let me know!

Well it seems that the sanity of Gow’s friend’s seem to have returned to normal levels. Only on person cam up with a word that didn’t exist. That’s not to say that they made the word easy to work in.

This week we had the chance to properly use the new studio arm and mic together. Last week we got to us the mic but I had to get a replacement arm sent as the first was damaged in delivery.

I have to commend the eBay seller nottinghammusicshop who has been incredibly helpful and responsive.

Any as you can no doubt see I am rambling as I need to pad out the section next to the image. The reason for that is the podcast player does not fit in this gap and leaves a lot of ugly whitespace.

So without further stalling here is this weeks Podcast – as always the links for any story can be found below.

The Drinky Talky Thing Podcast, Episode #7

I've taken so many of these now I'm starting to rattle

Well here we are again – another Podcast where we have to apologise for the delay.

Despite the fact that we all live so close together, finding those moments where all of our schedules have a gap has proved difficult.

As if to prove that fact, this Podcast is missing Craig Albeck is missing, being that he was on his way back from a micro-payment convention in London.

What you will also notice is different in this episode is that I am considerably more drunk than normal. This is a result of the fact that I have been on painkillers for back problems, and this is the first time in 2 weeks I have had anything to drink.

On that note I’ll let you listen to Me & Gow, Try and stay on topic.

As a bit of a warning as this was another catchup episode, it is once again over 2hrs long, but this time it seems like it would be better not to split it.

Oh and if you make it through the whole two hours and happen to be ginger, I apologise in advance 🙂
