I waiting for confimation from the powers that be, or in this case a wind-up midget butler named Crap, to tell me I have a new home (http://secondlife.isfullofcrap.com/2007/05/coming_soon.html). Through a series of some very rapid events over this past weekend, I became a partner in a new sim. I am very excited about this, I get my own 1/9 of a sim to play with as I see fit. I have neighbors who I know and I will be across a beach from my podcasting co-host Tamara.
Now does anyone know how to herd the ducks into their crate so I can move them?
If you need me I’ll be packing up my castle, I don’t trust SL Movers, they broke some vases last time and I’m still missing some silver candlesticks…
OK, I was wrong their could be something more out of control than interviewing Crap and Radar: Interviewing Will Pitre. I was told that podcasting is supposed to be fun, well in the past two days I don’t think Tamara and I have laughed more. I know why Will’s podcast is 5 minutes, I don’t think he could stay on topic longer than that. I think having the phone ring (I will not say who’s phone) in the middle of a tangent might have helped get us back on track for about 5 -10 minutes, then somehow the price of sex-gen beds came up and it’s all a blur after that. I hope I will be able to edit this all together into a coherent segment, if not blame William Pitre. Do a search, IM him and tell him it’s all his fault.
Thank you Will for coming on our show, I did enjoy the conversation. It’s a shame some of the best parts were off the record. And for some reason the only picture I could find of you was on SLBuzz of me, Crap and you relaxing at the Speakeasy.
For what it’s worth: If you pay more for your bed than the land it sits on, you may need to evaluate your priorities.
I knew what we were getting ourselves into. I knew the second the idea left my head and Tamara and I talked about it. We knew that herding cats would be easier. We did it anyway.
Last night we interviewed both Crap Mariner and Radar Masukami for our next episode of Going Broke. I say interview for last of a better word. Tamara and I asked an occasional question, Crap and Radar talked about whatever they wanted to. I haven’t listened to the whole interview yet, I know there is a lot of me just laughing. I know that topics got off course. I know there might be parts that should never see the light of day. I know I will be editing and laughing at the same time. This time the editing won’t take forever because of sound problem ( I hope) but because I can’t slice and dice audio tracks and laugh uncontrollably at the same time.
To Crap and To Radar,
Thank you for coming on our show. Thank you for being yourselves. Thank you for your input on the subject at hand. And thank you for being my friends.
Ok, I will admit when I saw Torley Linden’s SLBuzz photos in a Panda avatar, I wanted it immediately. I waited, buying a furry avie shouldn’t be a purchased rushed in to. But after over a month I still wanted it. So I went Panda shopping. I ended up at Wynx and **poof** I’m a panda. I showed a friend and he said “You have to wear that on Friday at the Bucket Party”. Not one to pass up on surprising people when I show up at Bucket, I went for it. I found myself an orange hat and off I went.
Will Panda Daphne show up some more? Maybe. You never know. So if you see me shopping for hats or bows, know it’s probably not for my human form. Even as a Panda I need to look good.

I will probably be able to write more here on the days immediately following a podcast release. The good news is we only plan on releasing them every 2 weeks, the bad news is it takes us at least a week to prep for a show and if we are doing interviews that’s could easily take a few extra days because trying to schedule Tamara, me and the interviewee is never easy.
The podcast is going well, I feel like I need to apologize for the sound quality, but everyone is either being nice or understanding about it. I’m new at this, I’m still learning, I will get better. In the days after a release, I like to relax a bit. I went dancing last night, did a little shopping… I mean research for the show, and caught up with some friends. When I’m editing a show and trying to get it listenable I feel like I lose time, it’s nice to catch up with my friends. I asked a few podcasters if editing gets easier, I’ve been told no but I will get better at it. I’m sure I will get a process down and I won’t be spending all my time doing it.
Like the title said these are my random thoughts, I will try to keep them on a topic once in awhile, but to be honest I don’t want to put that much thought into it.
Until next time,
OK I created a WordPress blog… now I just need to find time to do something with it. There is more to me than the podcast, really. I figure I will use this to talk about things other than shopping in Second Life, hard to believe but they do exist.
