THE URANIUM CAFE PODCAST: EPISODE 03

Posted in Podcast on September 2, 2011 by Bill Courtney
With episode three of The Uranium Cafe Podcast I actually discuss some movies I have seen lately. Lot of technical testing wit the first two podcasts but over all things are working as well as they can. Happy to report I figured out how to use the 1 Pixel Out Flash audio player in Blogger. High level tweaking here readers and listeners, but I like this player much more than the Google reader player I was using before but it took some work to figure it all out. I do ill-prepared reviews of four films in this episode: Earth vs. the Spider, Sharktopus, Mortuary and Sea Beast. But that is the idea here for me, some from the gut reviews but next time around I may pepper things up with more trivia. But that is more the style I use for writing and do not want to get bogged here either. In any case, here is episode three and hopefully number four is not too far around the corner.

THE URANIUM CAFE PODCAST: EPISODE 02

Posted in Podcast on July 7, 2011 by Bill Courtney
With the 2nd Uranium Cafe I am still playing around with some new software including Sony Sound Forge, which I now use to record the podcast onto and then do my final editing in Sony Acid. Sound Forge is great for this type of thing and I highly recommend it. Slightly higher learning curve than, lets say, Audacity, but well worth in the end. In this episode I babble a bit about  the Internet in China and how it is that I am able to get all these movies here in China and some of the pros and cons of pirated DVDs. Was going to discuss the remake of Earth vs the Spider but decided to do that next time as the episode was running a little long. Some editing and audio glitches but good enough for now. You can tell that two different podcast sessions were patched together at about 3 minutes 30 seconds and ending at about minute 21. The sound quality and my mood is totally different from the parts at the beginning and end and it is a bit amusing. There was a technical disaster and some of the the podcast was screwed up so bad I had to do it this way or redo it all from scratch. By the way, I do not drink, total teetotaler,  and so I am not drunk in the section in the middle but I sounded pretty wasted If I don’t say so myself.

THE URANIUM CAFE PODCAST: EPISODE 01

Posted in Podcast on June 23, 2011 by Bill Courtney

This post marks the return of The Uranium Cafe Podcast but there is not much going on here other than testing out some technical issues with my audio hosting service and getting relaxed with my recording software again. Some problems with the microphone but I know how to fix that and I simply forgot to wrap some thing around the mic. One day need to spurge for a reasonably priced condenser mic. Not just for this podcast stuff which is not really all that urgent to have impeccable audio but for some of of my music recording where it is a little more urgent. Again, just a test here. I did keep the episode at exactly ten minutes which is my goal. Ten to no more than fifteen minutes. Movie talk next time. This time you get to hear me screw up a simple phrase of Mandarin. Hopefully all of this is going to work out.
