In this episode, I start with a song from Sarah Shook and the Disarmers; I talk about the upcoming Dog Days of Podcasting; I discuss the weird joy I got from a bunch of comic book boxes; I talk about wiping out devices and starting over.
Here is the direct MP3 download for the EGC clambake for September 15, 2009. I play a song from Chad VanGaalen; I talk about post-Dragon*Con longings; I play a snippet from George Hrab’s Geologic podcast; I talk about my desire to pursue Collection Drawer as a sponsor; I discuss how the boring clerical parts of comic book collecting makes me happy and how you know when you’ve picked the right hobby; I play a song by Blitzen Trapper and say good bye to a good dog.
Just to make this even weirder I’m going to try embedding the Ustream widget right here on the blog as I unbox and try to assemble some comic drawer boxes. What could be more fascinating?
Update: The experiment seems to have gone fine. The people watching the stream got to see lots of shots of my dog trying to be helpful and licking the boxes as I was trying to assemble them. I’m going to redo this again tonight for the vlog since I’m pretty sure my footage from the camcorder was useless.
Thanks to Derek Coward for actually providing me the information the directions lacked on how to assemble the second end of the shell. I ended up getting a little stuck and Derek bailed me out from the chat. As a side benefit, a guy whose been my friend for pushing 25 years joined in the chat and we talked afterwards. Good times!
Tonight and for the near future, I’ll be live on Ustream Monday nights at 8:30 PM Eastern time. Most nights I will be recording episodes of the podcast in that time slot but tonight I’ll be shooting a video of me unboxing and setting up my comic book drawer boxes that just arrived today. If I can figure out how to stream the camcorder video as I shoot it, I’ll do that. Otherwise, I’ll just set a laptop nearby and let it ride. We’ll see how this works out. Tonight might be interesting or it might be a disaster. Anything is possible but drop in and check it out.
