This week started our roll out of the new Sorgatron Media layout and WordPress 3.0 Multi User account. Basically that means that all of the sites are going to be managed by one login and show posts, for example, will only need to be made once and shared across the show and main web site. So far the main SorgatronMedia.com is rolled over, as well as MusicFuntimeShow.com, since it’s one of the smaller of the sites I had to convert. The rest of the shows will follow in due time!
This was great to get Walt Ribeiro on board to do a show. I met Walt fist back at Podcamp Pittsburgh 3 and loved his session on how he just dropped everything and made a business out of himself in six months. He was a great personality that fit right in with our attitude on the show and sharing thoughts on the stories of the week.
We had some tech problems with Skype on his Mac for some reason. This has been a long standing problem that Skype seems to have less readily available options so that if there is a problem, there’s not much we can do to figure something out of it. Thankfully, the stars aligned and Walt had Google Talk installed, so we brought him up there. Again, I can’t go full screen, but I did find the ability to crop my Desktop Presenter so no one would no on the video stream. Unless you notice the small window behind me on the studio shot.
Great to be back in the studio. I had one of those rare moments where I had a chance to rant on some wrestlers that tick me off. So much so, that I posted the clip separately on request.
This is where I’m finding some trouble. On both recordings of the show, about 40 minutes in, Wirecast crashes. Actually not just Wirecast, the entire Macbook froze. I couldn’t recover the files due to the length being indeterminate according to VisualHub. Thankfully, we stream our show up to Justin.tv, who auto records everything! Show saved. A quick push to Youtube, download as MP4, convert to DV for editing, and we’re back in business to carry the editing process from there…
Another easy show featuring some very different music.
Chachi reviews his new Android T-Mobile G2. Thankfully this means he’ll have a new phone to shoot video on that should beat the pants off what he’s been using when doing solo shoots. Good conclusion to the ongoing next phone saga.
