Chuckle-Bits Radio: Final Episode Update 3


Jesus Christ, I did it. My first sweep of the edit of the final episode of Chuckle-Bits Radio is done! What I mean by "first sweep" is that I've fixed the audio problems described in a previous blog post. I've also cut chunks of boring dialogue, parts where I breathe into the mic, and pretty much everything Stevie Grant says.

All I have to do now is go through the cleanly edited footage and add all the stupid sounds and jingles. This means, if all goes well, that the episode will be done sooner rather than later. Although don't be surprised if it's still a few weeks before it gets published.

Okay? Okay. Okay!

Chuckle-Bits Radio: Final Episode Update 2



I've managed to edit 1 hour and 38 minutes of the 2 hour and 33 minute raw recording of the final episode of Chuckle-Bits Radio. The total run time, as of now, is just over 2 hours, which means I've cut half an hour of garbage and have roughly 22 minutes of content left to plough through.

Sounds simple, yeah?

Well, that 22 minutes will probably take me another editing session to complete and export. Then, as I described in a previous blog post, I'll need to take the edited recording and add all the stupid sound effects and songs Chuckle-Bits Radio is known for and Chuckle-Bits Radio listeners love so much.

Well, at least it'll be done by Christmas.

HOTDOGS: A Quilt



I made a quilt, completely unaided, with help from Emma. You can see it in the fancy gif above. Maybe you like it, and maybe you don't. Either way, I'll never find out.

Chuckle-Bits Radio: Final Episode Update


Good news: I managed to find the Audacity editing files for the previous episodes of the super smash hit comedy videogame podcast Chuckle-Bits Radio. They were on the other hard drive—the external one. Silly me. Here is the list of files I now have access to:

STEBIE OHH.mp3
STEBIE NUH.mp3
STEBIE DAYUHUH.mp3

Bad news: The final episode of the super smash hit comedy videogame podcast Chuckle-Bits Radio will take approximately one million years to edit.

Chuckle-Bits Radio: Final Episode - It's Happening!!!1




Yes, Stevie Grant and I recorded one final episode of the hit videogame comedy podcast Chuckle-Bits Radio. Yes, the unedited MP3 is sitting on my hard drive right now. And yes, I intend to have it edited and published... sometime soon.

But here's the deal: The quality of the recording is... subpar. Skype didn't work. MP3 Skype Recorder didn't work. And it took Stevie Grant two hours to realise that his microphone needed to be positioned beside his mouth.

Also, I might have accidentally lost every single Audacity editing file for every single previous podcast episode, including all of our ever-popular jingles, theme songs, and sound effects, in an unfortunate computer formatting incident back in February. All that survived was an instrumental version of Pumpkin Hill from Sonic Adventure 2.

I'm going to try and perform my editing magic. I'm going to try and make this work. But if it doesn't, I just want you all to know...

That it's all Stevie Grant's fault.
