in the toilet.

We recorded a great podcast, however, due to extreme technical difficulties, we lost it all. See, we record the podcast on 2 different computers, then merge the tracks together on 1 of the comps… we need to do this via a usb key, when transfering the audio to the usb key, the usb key froze, and the file was gone forever.

So no culturedcast this week, no culturedcast next week, you will have to wait 2 more weeks to get a new 1, I apologize.



The new format

So, since we’ve gotten alot of hits, we have also received ALOT of feedback. The main theme of a majority of the emails were “Why or how are you cultured? you sound like most other gaming podcasts” and “I thought when you guys would deviate away from games, you were really funny.” So because of this, Chris and I have discussed things, and came up with a new formula.

We decided that about 15-20% of the culturedcast will focus on games (so 15-20 minutes, since its about an hour long podcast) and the rest of it will just be filled with everything from personal stories (which was in large demand, Chris’s bay story was loved.) to just mindless ramblings about this or that.

Also, Eric will not have a microphone again this week, stop bugging me with that.

So let’s hear what you guys think of this? either drop us a comment here, or go over to our forums and let us know.



Culturedcast: server issues and announcing culturedcast 2.

Alright, so as we know the podcast (culturedcast) went live last saturday. It quickly went back offline because we exceeded the servers bandwith (considering it was 5gb, I take that as an achievement.) I was expecting perhaps 20 or so people checking it out and downloading… now if we are to go by the sites counter, it’s currently over 1500 hits (1100 of those being unique page views.)

So because of this I have to change servers to meet the large demand. I will be doing this move to the new server this weekend. I’ve already started to transfer over stuff, but since I have quite abit of stuff to do, it’ll be ready for sure by this weekend.

Also, I’d like to officially announce culturedcast 2 that will be ready for download by saturday.. most likely Sunday though.

Due to next weekend being Easter, we will probably take a week off.

Enjoy everyone.



update on my x-files watching.

So, I just finished season 2, and started season 3.

As much as I enjoyed season 2, the first 2 episodes of season 3 blew my socks off… Firstly, I wasn’t expecting Skinner to take a stand like that. Mulder literally coming back from death, and those aliens running around was just awesome… I’m already hooked to season 3. What a great show.

1 thing confused me though to no end, it seems like Mulder was driving a blue 2001 chevy cavalier at the beginning of season 3… the thing is, the show was recorded in 95… So I’m still trying to figure that 1 out.

If the first 2 episodes are any indication for the rest of the season, I think I’m in for a good 1.



The surprise (culturedcast)

So, Here it is, The Surprise.

It’s 1 of several things, firstly, we redesigned this blog. We also redesigned the forum so it looks similar to this (check it out here)

Lastly, the biggest surprise of them all:

We now have a podcast called “Culturedcast” please check it out and feel free to download it here. Culturedcast 1 is available for download now.

Alright, so I have discussed many things with the few people in the know about the surprise. I promise that this weekend you will have the surprise.

We are shooting for a saturday date, however, a Sunday date is probably more likely.

also, you only have 24 hours left in the brawl contest, so you better get rolling.
