Long Weekend Audio: The First Of Many Casts

Last Updated on: 4th May 2022, 01:23 pm

Well…our first audio is up. We had hoped to have it up last night, but we kind of fell over after we finished recording it. The file got uploaded to the server, but hell if I was going to write the post around it. So I’m writing it this morning.

Poor Steve had to start it alone, because Trix had to take care of business. But I figured I’d make my presence known. If you wondered why Steve suddenly made some yelling noise in the middle of his sentence, no, he hasn’t lost his mind. I was down below, making the Tugboat noise at him. I hoped the mic would pick it up, but it didn’t. The Tugboat noise? Yes, the Tugboat noise. It’s about 6 minutes in, but there it is. Probably if I hadn’t seen it, I wouldn’t believe it either.
If you don’t feel like waiting 6 minutes for 16 seconds of Tugboaty goodness, you can download his promo right here. Eeeeeee!

After I distract him with randomly-placed Tugboat noises, Steve manages to get his groove back, and talks about our new website, and how it’s awesome to have audio capabilities back. He then moves on to baseball, and how certain Blue Jays are doing really well while others were awesome, but need some help.

When I got back, we talked about wrestling, and I finally sort of mention Tugboat, but we really couldn’t do him justice. That moved us on to how much wrestling has changed over the years, and how hard it is to be a new fan today.

Next up, I gave a brief update on me, and how Trix gave me a little bit of a scare. This led us to talking about how awesome it is to move over from Blogger to a place where we actually have some server space, and the awesome that is Skynet Communications. We also got to rag on Blogger importer for screwing up who wrote what, and being just a wee bit bizarre.

Somehow we got from here to talking about the new Guelph Central Station, AKA the land of confusion where our city buses live now. We talked about how eventually we hope it will be easier to navigate, but right now, it’s a total zoo, and we’re all confused, which is really fun when transfer times are next to 0. We also talked about how it’s kind of dumb to have a heap of bus platforms and no real shelter, since the inside of the building won’t be functional until 2013. Also, we mentioned that that light at St. George’s Square is no longer an all-way stop, so don’t die, everybody.

As we talked about the crappy decision that was changing routes in January, we some how wandered into describing our creepy landlord from the old apartment building.

Next up, Steve gave his opinions on foreign music. What more can I say about that little piece. Oh, I can link to the video I mentioned as part of the conversation.

While Steve went to get a beer, I talked about how awesome Shane’s podcasts are, and how they brought back memories of training.

Things begin winding down with another plug for Skynet Communications. Somehow that led into a talk about how the “underline” key is now called “underscore” and wondering how that happened.

We wrap things up by reminding people that they can send us questions and we will answer them in an audio mailbag, but we need more questions, so keep sending them in.

And that does it for our first 53 minutes of chaos. If you feel so inclined, go get it. Enjoy, and there will be more to come, I’m sure.

  1. I’m glad you explained the Tugboat thing. We don’t need people thinking I have some sort of medical condition. Well, no more than they already do, anyhow.

  2. Oops. Homeboy forgot to subscribe to the comments.

    Oh, and what can you say about my music reviews? You could start by saying that I’m one multicultural fellow. That would work.

  3. I can’t listen to this yet since I have a game soon, but I’m looking forward to it. This is my first comment on the new Comet. Haha. See what I did there? Comment, Comet. More coffee please.
