You know what's better than a white guy talking about geeky shit on the Internet?
A white guy talking about geeky shit in the Internet into a microphone.
That's right, folks. My mic is here, and I'm cutting my teeth on the ins and outs of using it. Right now, the quality is somewhere between "this is pretty okay" and "recording with an actual potato."
Jokes aside, I'm trying to figure out how to record shit, build an RSS feed, make the stuff I record entertaining, and all the other fun rigmarole that comes with trying to record something halfway decent.
Right now, I'm settled on two different types of episodes, that will be clearly indicated by their titles. First, I'll have regular episodes. These will talk about various things going on with gaming, movies... maybe even some anime, if I feel like it. Anime's pretty cool, and I think I'm sort of proficient in it. There'll be opinions. There'll be jokes. And hey, maybe there'll even be some quality content sometimes!
Second, I'll do reviews. These will be, more or less, spoken versions of my reviews. I plan to chop some bits off to make them a bit more concise and easy to listen to, so it doesn't feel like I'm just blathering at you about some shit I watched, or played, or read, or whatever. Some people get bored by reading, which sucks, but it's true. So why not listen to my opinions straight from the horse's mouth, right?
Of course, with feedback, I'll play around with format, length, so on, so forth, until I figure out a formula that works.
As far as the YouTube content I mentioned goes, I'm still working on that. It may be a tad later than anticipated (?), as I really want to make sure I do it right, and while that's a bit of bummer for anyone who really wanted to watch another person react to video games on YouTube, I think it's a good idea. The content's still coming within the next month or so. Don't worry about that. I just want to make sure I don't put out something super awful and cringe-y. At least, not at first. Some cringe as I go forward is okay. I'll learn. We'll learn together. We'll get through it.
So, that's where I'm at right now. I'm recording mock-ups of what will be the podcast, and the first episode may be going up within a week or so, along with one or two reviews, most likely of Unravel, Deadpool and (if I'm up for it) Zoolander 2: Unnecessary Sequel Boogaloo.
More Sonic Jam is coming this week, along with a written review of Unravel, and probably a Backlogged entry. Thanks for your support, as always.
