Adult Swim’s Dana Snyder and FRED’s Ken Plume set out to have a literate conversation between two pals, but inevitably devolve into a verbal, and funny, free-for-all full of bickering, infighting, and the special kind of male bonding that comes from conflict expressed through the podcast medium. This, dear friends, is the online experience!
This past Friday on the Swimcast, we tried a rather interesting experiment: The Swimmies... one of the categories was "Best Podcast You May (or May Not) Be Listening To -- Of all the nominations, only one podcast won (by a vast margin...):
Hi I just wanted to clear up the Skype issue for any Mac users out there. You call us. You hear our answering message. You then speak and leave your message. When you're done leaving your message you click the BIG RED BUTTON AT THE BOTTOM OF THE WINDOW. It has a little phone receiver in the middle of it, and it essentially "hangs up" the call. If you merely close the window using the little red circle on the upper left of the window, all your beautiful message you left goes right down the poop hole, and is lost forever. Hope that helps as well. Now please call us and let us know how smart you are at doing this.
Skype account name : snydecast
I will not leave an unamusing youtube video after this however. I will leave you with this one, which rocks your genitals off!
Wanted to clarify the issue (or lack thereof) with the Snydecast Skype Voicemail as addressed on the most recent Snydecast episode...
I'm using the most up-to-date version of Skype (188.8.131.52) on the PC (WinXP to be exact) and I screencapped exactly what happens when I call the VM...
Example One: Once you get through Dana's spiel about ritualistically killing Plumey in order to make this Voicemail Greeting, you will be prompted to leave your voice message. As you can see, the Green Button does not light up and is therefore inactive. The red button, as you can see from the image, prompts you to click it once you are done leaving the message.
Example Two: Once you've clicked on the red button, it confirms (presumably) that the voicemail has been sent. Clicking the red button a second time will disconnect you from the voicemail completely.
I hope that helps out on the confusion of buttons. I have to wonder if since the Mac version of Skype isn't as up-to-date as the PC version, if this may be different as Plumey had originally described... if anyone would like to test it on Mac, please do go ahead and let us know here. I don't have eleventy billion dollars for a flipping AirBook (like some people do, Dana. :P) so I can't exactly test it myself.
As Dana mentioned in Snydecast 81. My friend (and former Swimcast host) Mike knows the gent who has posted most (if not all) of the Songsmith YouTubes found on this here intarweb. From what i'm told, a good majority of the songs came from the master tracks on the Rock Band games. Here are some links you can find his stuff at:
Alright Gang hot off Snydecast 81 here's the much anticipated vocal tracks for all you to put together with SongSmith, the program that makes me want for a pc. See how you can stink up these terribly stinky vocals, and possibly be the producer for the new Ken P D Snydecast Mail song! Use your limitless imagination, and a cheapy songsmith synth composed music maker to blow our minds! They'll all be played on upcoming snydecasts, so get to it already!
