This is a very sleep deprived HNG coming to you from New York City. I’m here visiting my nieces and having a great time with them. Unfortunately for me, I usually go to bed around midnight-2:00am California time. Combine my sleeping habits with the time zone change and my body wants to go to sleep between 3:00am-5:00am New York time. Since I’m typically waking up around 8:00am that’s not working out too well for me. 5-hour Energy has become my new best friend.
Oh, and we recorded this a while ago when I was very sick so my voice is all scratchy and Janeway-sounding. I was also suffering a bit from sick brain so it was difficult for me to put my thoughts together at times. But considering how awful I felt, I thought I did pretty good.
Thanks to Mark and Isaac! It’s always fun to talk Trek with you! Listen to the podcast here:
I was still sick when we did this so there are moments when my voice cracks and I sound like a 13 year old boy going through puberty. Since I typically dress like a 13 year old boy it was actually pretty fitting.
You might also notice that I got really excited and more talkative during the Thor part. What can I say? He’s my favorite comic book character
Thanks to Isaac and the guys at World’s Best Podcast for another fabulous evening of nerd talk. It’s always a pleasure! Hope you enjoy our discussion:
I’m sick for the second time in a week and I have a gopher that is destroying my yard and my life. So lame. Just before I got sick the first time I participated in a Star Trek discussion with Isaac and Mark over at World’s Best Podcast for a new section of the podcast they are calling “Ten Forward.”
If this all rings a bell it’s because I participated in a Daredevil discussion with them about a month ago.
Just like before, WordPress has issues with the above audio player and it can take a while to buffer. If you’re having problems just click here to listen to the podcast. Sorry about that, I’m trying to figure out how to fix it.
Look for more stimulating Star Trek conversations in the future!
Having a picture of yourself in a miscellaneous superhero costume comes in handy more than you'd think
About a month ago I got an email from Isaac over at World’s Best Podcast asking me if I’d like to participate in the occasional podcast session. I’ve never done a podcast before so I said I would be delighted! After a meet and greet via Skype it was decided that my first guest appearance would be for the Dardevil movie discussion.
I’ve gotta say, I had a lot of fun participating in this. Isaac and Adam are fantastic and it’s extremely refreshing to geek out with other nerds. Usually when I start talking about this stuff with virtual strangers they either look at me like they think I’m insane or like they want to pat me on the head and shoo me out of the room before I embarrass either them or myself. Except at Conventions aka My Happy Place.
Two things I learned from my first podcasting experience:
1. I need to get a better mic. I’ll do that at some point.
2. I need to not play with the microphone cord. Ever. I did that a lot and, totally unbeknownst to me, it resulted in some lovely I Am T-Pain vocal sound effects. Luckily the podcast gods were looking out for me and I did it mostly when I was listening so Auto Tune Tracy only pops up at the very beginning of the podcast.
So, without further ado, here’s Isaac, Adam and yours truly discussing the movie Daredevilstarring Ben Affleck, Jennifer Garner, Michael Clarke Duncan, Colin Farrell and Jon Favreau. Hope you like it!
