What was going to be...

just didn't happen. I had planned to try something a little different with this post. I was going to produce a podcast. Yes, that's right, a podcast. But you know what? I just don't have a radio voice. I had a few tunes lined up... some old, some new and believe it or not, some blue. I put the tracks down, recorded my intro to each tune as it started. It included why I liked the tune, and then after I had it all down, I played it back....

*notes to self:
  • Stop saying "at the moment".
  • Don't say "God I just love this tune, it's my favourite" before every song.
  • Cut selection of songs back a little.
  • Not every song "rocks!"
  • and most importantly DON'T sing along with mic turned on.

So, the question I pose to myself today is, should I shelve the idea or persist and just polish up my mic technique a little more. I guess I'd like to try it again. I like the idea of doing a podcast, so I guess I'll give it a go again soon. Plus I have designed a very cool logo for my podcast as pictured above and I'd hate it to go to waste...

But not this weekend, Mum and Dad are visiting.

Podcasts are a bit 2005... we want live streaming video! :P

Tom: Yes the podcast is so 2005, but let's face it, i don't think the playing tunes concept really would work on video... :)
TomCat: I'm sure I will.
Monty: Thanks buddy.

just add beer etc.

Muz, I'm thinking that Tom's wanting more than just you playing tunes on the "live streaming video"...methinks he wants a, errr, performance!!! ;-)

Muzbot said...

Tom will have to speak to me in person if he wants a "performance". It's not going to happen on video.

Tom said...

No, you're right, the playing tunes wouldn't work... and after I posted that I remembered you'd actually already done a video. So, silly comment really!

Monty seems to be gagging for a live performance though :P

Muzbot podcaster! would love to hear that and can you include notes to self on it? laughed out loud to the written ones ;) xx

Don't delete! I wanna hear MuzKareoke!
Nobody, except the totally vain, likes the sound of there own voice. Relax into it babe, think as though you have a mate on the couch and you're sharing your favorite tunes.
We're all in!

ps your voice purrs like your bike - share it round
like tim says, beer is the answer.
