It’s funny, lately I’ve been posting more frequently and promoting my podcast/videocast all over the place, but the number of subscribers is going down while at the same time I’m getting lots of positive feedback. Go figger.
I videoblogged my family’s weekend trip to Tokyo Disney Sea. From the point of view of the video’s host, I should have done more narration, but I was there as a husband and father, so I wanted to focus my attention on my family. As much as I love to share my life with all of yuns (that’s plural for you), frankly, it’s not a something that appeals to my wife and I respect that. I did have her listen to some of the audio I captured with the binaural mics and she was impressed, so at least she can understand the appeal. She is who she is, I am who I am, and that’s that. There’s no need evaluate the situation any deeper than that. That’s where couples get in trouble.
Half way through the day it hit me that 90% of what you hear in Disneyland is, well…fake. It’s a really, really well-done fake, but listening to a podcast recorded there, heck, you might as well be plugged directly into the PA system that’s pumping out all the sound effects. I’m not a Disney hater; they’re absolutely the best at what they do. I’ll save the details for the next podcast.
In the meantime, I posted the video I shot to commonbits.org. To retrieve it, you’ll need to learn how to use BitTorrent. There’s a tutorial here. If you can’t figure it out, don’t worry about it; we’re not talking Oscar award-winning cinematography here. It’s not that great of a loss.
The guy running commonflix.org let me get away with it this time, but the content doesn’t seem to be the kind of stuff that’s normally hosted there. If anyone knows a more appropriate site to use, please let me know.
So the file linked to below is a torrent file that contains data used by programs like iPodderX (Mac), DopplerRadio (Win) or Azeurus (Java) to download the actual video.
