Some of you may be asking, “Where the hell are we?” Well, as you may have noticed, we have not been releasing our weekly podcasts. It may be even more correct to ask, “Where the hell is Alex?” because in reality it is me that is gone. And by gone, I mean gone to college and away from Houston. We started the podcast while we were still in high school for our senior year and at that time I received my acceptance to the University of Texas in Austin where I am at presently taking summer courses. There is no possible way for Luis and I to create the podcast on a weekly basis even if I had the necessary time to edit and watch anime. You may have noticed that on our first podcast episode the voice quality was significantly lower than our subsequent podcasts the reason for this being that we attempted to do our podcast on Skype. This was ultimately more convenient but ended up being quite trashy if you ask me since we don’t have the necessary equipment than the guys, say, at Diggnation. The rest of the podcasts were done at our studio in Kingwood, Texas aka my room. It could be possible for us to do the podcast on Skype but it will be bad quality. If it risks the quality of the cast, I will not do it.
I hope you enjoyed the podcast. It was a great experience and for me I was finally able to release my opinions on anime. Some of you may have hated me for some of my RAGED articles (Full Metal Alchemist ring a bell?) but I did receive many, many encouraging emails commenting on the quality of our podcast. I agree, as far as my ego will permit, that the podcast we released was top quality. One of these qualities I particularly enjoyed was the background music which is often frowned upon because it can distract the listener. I played often with the music, picking different ones and searching for what was the best. It also let me put into action many of my favorite songs.
So, you may be asking, what of the future? I will be releasing articles every now and then but the podcast will be on HOLD until the SUMMER OF 2007 when I will be free to work on the podcast.
On a short note, we have more subscribers than we have ever had… ever.
