It’s been a bit of a slow week here in LRRland, after the chaos that was last week. Beyond just my birthday, we did a lot of running around and shooting in order to facilitate our new meeting and shooting schedule, and this week presented the fruits of that labour. Our new schedule means that you can expect a better, faster and stronger LRR going forward — one that is better able to plan ahead to produce high-quality phail. It also means way less stress for us throughout the week, which is AWESOME.
As Frost points out, Nick Suttner (a fellow Canadian) mentioned our Geometry Wars Developer Spotlight on 1Up Yours last week . . . though he was (shockingly) unaware of its source. While I probably don’t need to link the biggest gaming podcast out there, but I figure there could be karma in it. . . and I don’t have any swamps :).
Fun fact: The second-to-last line of Song of the Fanboy was at one point “I need you like the 1Up Show”, accompanying several other lyrical missteps that were eventually remedied.
Bait and Switch
Our new LRR schedule (of doom) has somewhat thrown off our podcasting routine. Up to now, we have recorded podcasts on Monday and put them up midweek; however going forward, we will be recording them on Saturday. The downside of this is we’ve had to move our update time from Thursday to Saturday — the absolute earliest James can get them up, sans time helmet. The upside is that we will be better able to respond to your feedback regarding the videos instead of simply assuming that you loved them. Plus you’ll have a whole week to get in those 15 seconds of fame entries that you are TOTALLY GOING TO DO.
Nothing Good Ever Came From MySpace . . . Or Dit It?
Be sure to tune in to this week’s LRR Community Profile, in which Tim interviews The Rocket Siobhan. I found this one very insightful, as this is the first example of anything good coming from MySpace trolling . . . especially MySpace trolling involving Morgan. Incidentally, make sure to spam Morgan’s facebook, harass him over the phone, or at least drop him a PM via the forums on August 26, as we celebrate a quarter century of putting up with his crap.
Just the PAX Ma’am
There has been more discussion regarding the PAX meetup since last week’s post, so I thought I’d give a quick heads up as to where things stand. In short, some sort of Saturday evening event is leading the polls, and since some of you are not of age, a resteraunt will likely be the best plan. As Graham is not coming, his love of Dick’s will not necessarily be a factor, but as others of you are into Dick’s as well, that’s not to say it’s out of the running.
James, Matt, Morgan and I will discuss the options again tomorrow, and hopefully I’ll be able to announce something more concrete by bedtime.
And thats it! I’ll throw up a 15-seconds tomorrow night after the podcast goes up, and I’ll try to wrangle a preview pic as well, as soon as I figure out who has one.
In the meantime, Jer out.
