Jack Random’s Soul-Crushing Recording Mishaps Jack Random’s Soul-Crushing Recording Mishaps
Due to technical problems, Jack presents you a rerun of an episode from June. Jack and Kyle are joined by the "geek in training"... Jack Random’s Soul-Crushing Recording Mishaps

As all podcasters know, Skype recording programs are sadly still very unreliable.

So when Jack and Kyle recorded the latest episode of their podcast, fate was in an especially cruel mood and decided to turn it into 1.5 hours of meditative silence. Allegedly, it was the best podcast in the world. But this is not that podcast, it’s just a tribute -or a rerun- of an episode from June, actually.

Here is the original description of the episode “Jack Random’s Confusing Comic Conundrum”:

 “Finish off Jack and Kyle’s hellish week with the most resilient podcast on the damn net! We have geek-in-training Amanda Buchalter joining the guys this week to pick their brains on all things comic book related.
Marvel at the guys’ attempts to grace the program with “Breaking News” that’s really not news anymore!
Is 3-D overrated? Curved-screen televisions?
Listen and find out if Amanda can swim!”

    Ohhh…. I know all too well about the Skype problems. I wonder if it would be out of the question for someone to make a program that actually works all the time.

    Stalks and I lost one, too. Woulda been epic. We had fun, though!!

  • Tarmac492.1

    I have had Word wipe out a page or two of writing.

  • I_am_better

    When we were doing BOPX, we lost like 3-4 episodes in a row

  • Tarmac492.1

    I wonder if Vader would be able to use his Force strangulation hold over Skype. “You have failed me for the last time, Admiral—what?? What the fuck is this? Skype has lost connection? I am trying to wipe out the rebel Alliance and the Emperor wants us to use this cheap fucking software??? I am a Sith Lord. Just look at my Skype handle.NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

  • Tarmac492.1

    Uggh.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Whos running Skype? Joe Piscopo????

  • Jack Randomm

    Turns out that Skype updated, and the recorder didn’t. Throughout the show the “Recording finished” notification popped up several times, our guest’s connection failed, and I ended up with three seperate audio files. The wrap up was the only part that recorded.

    Anyway, FYI, Skype Mp3 Recorder Version 4.17 is available, and should be downloaded soonest.

    Fucking Skype is like the Disqus of call conferencing!

    Anyways, I’m looking forward to listening to your recent Poddy.
    That’s if its avialible on iTunes before I leave work.

  • Stalkeye

    Oh, Fuck yeah! It was soo damn great and I just wanted to smash my laptop when the vocals from your end couldn’t get through. It sounded like background noise. If there was some kind of filter that would bring your end of the audio to match mine, I would up that Shit ASAP!!

  • Stalkeye

    What happened to that last BOPX recording? I really hope Dee will release it. I really had a blast with you guys.

  • I_am_better

    I gotta ask him, maybe he didn’t have time. I have a recording of that saved, so I could edit that if I had a moment

  • You and your love-hate to Piscopo!

  • Stalkeye

    I had previously asked him about it and got an answer.
    I have idea of if or when it will be released he is considering working on it and truth be told, editing can be a bitch. There’s something that i still have to work on. (Time allotted.)

  • Tarmac492.1

    Maybe the greatest actor Depalma has ever worked with.

  • I_am_better

    Editing is a Bitch, yes. Doing it right now as we speak.

  • I_am_better

    Wise Guys!!!

  • Tarmac492.1

    Thank Youuuuu Mr Acavano.

  • Yeah will come…

    Time to invest in a stenographer. You can call her Ms Shankenberry. Every once in awhile she tosses in an odd but amusing non-sequitur.

  • I_am_better

    Okay.

  • Jack Randomm

    We have the iTunes thing figured out, so it should be up next week.
