UPDATE: The show has been fixed and the link is back online. Enjoy synchronized podtacular goodness sans glaring editing mistakes.

Pod Art this week comes from Kimo23. Keep on fraggin’ trucks!

Thanks once again to Freak in a Box for editing the audio for this week’s show!

    Painkilla thinks everyone is a modder?! Who would of thunk it!

  7. Painkilla05 says:

    lol 1:28 AM

  8. Gemini Ace says:

    What about me?

  9. CapnKrunk says:

    Did anyone else’s file have some weird editing going on?

  10. chelski UK says:

    you know, i usually love the shows awkward silences. But this episode has set a new podtac record.
    started – 37:50 ended – 38:35!
    Damn thats a looong time…

  11. Painkilla05 says:

    Funny thing is, you listened to it all!

  12. RusOmi7677 says:

    Heres the deal I just got done listening to the show and the “you play to much halo when” well i wish i could have sumbitted this earlier but this is something i have actually done..”you play to much halo 2 when you are going thru a divorce and the only thing you ask for is your xbox and your halo game”

  13. GLewis says:

    well the reason for the sliences few the past two episodes is that my file for somereason runs slower then the others. So like where the silence is you can hear my talking very faintly (thats genami ace’s comp speakers) aka thats where i was talking. But i guess in the editing process it got messed up a bit, a minor flaw thats easily fixed but takes awhile. so yeah i’ve been on 5-6 episodes so far and everyone one of them has had the same problem. WHAT AM I DOING WRONG? lol maybe freak in a box secerly wants to kill me

  14. KIMO23 says:

    send this in for the next show!

    ps. whoever submitted that picture must be really cool.

  15. foomojive says:

    I think it’s time to explore other ways to record our show. This is obviously not working. Any ideas would be welcome.

  16. Painkilla05 says:

    Hotrecorder is sweet. I especially like the sheep.

  17. Paradox says:

    The unfraggable truck is coming soon.

  18. foomojive says:

    I have a mac. I can’t use hotrecorder or castblaster. It looks like IF the problem was audio syncing issues, then I’ll have to get audio hijack pro ($30) and route the audio all over the place with soundflower to make it work. Juice57 helped me try Gizmo conferencing today and that sucked BAAAAD. That would work if it were 2 people though, and there’s even a cough button. (what a concept!!)

    We figured out what happened on episode 52. Freak in a Box is working on fixing the episode. I don’t want to go into it because I’m sure this particular problem won’t happen again. In the mean time…

    The credits have been redone at the last minute at a great expense in an entirely different fashion. Arrrriba! Llamas trained by Jose.

  19. Painkilla05 says:

    Yea, Macs can barely run anything!

  20. Paradox says:

    Foul demon. I blind you with spotlight and use dashboard gage the speed that i drive over you. :)

    Foo mo, have you been watching Monty Python and the Holy Grail Lately?

  21. KIMO23 says:

    i dunno if foo mo has, but that is the greatest movie ever.

  22. Paradox says:

    Here is the promised Fragtruck:

    FMJ, you can use this in next weeks show as the art if you want.

  23. QualityJeverage says:

    It’s the Fraggertruck!

  24. spudmonkey says:

    Hey Foo Mo, if you have a mac u can buy iLife ’06 for aout $70. the new garageband is made specially for podcasting. my grandma uses it for hers

    great show guys keep up the good work!

  25. Eclipse says:

    I liked how they were talking about Halloween then all of a sudden Foo was talking about sand castles.

  26. foomojive says:

    lol ok the audio is fixed guys, please re-download for a show that has conversations about the same thing at the same time. :)

    Yes, I know much of monty python and the holy grail by heart. And by much I mean more than nothing.

    I really don’t want to spend $70 if I don’t have to. I actually got a system working that records a skype conversation (called nicecast) so I may use that in the future. It depends on whether freakinabox would rather try to fix the problems we’ve been having with the old system or trade separate tracks and higher quality audio for simplicity and instant synchronization.

  27. Shoe Jables says:

    GLewis should be the official co-host to moofo
    heh heh.
    Seriously, he should. There were too many people on the last episode. Don’t interupt one another damnit. Not my favorite episode, but it was good. Lemme in on a show sometime. I won’t be the most knowledge on the halo 2 thingy, but I can get drunk and be funny. Not the drunken funny where you throw nickles at the babblin drunken fool, but more…well…yeah maybe that kind of funny. Its a fun element to play with in podcasting.

    Your truly heaven sent,
    The Jabes of your dreams.

  28. GLewis says:

    hahah antoher assistant! Thanks guys but i think foo’s got his own plan on how he wants podtacular run. Any foo i know how to record over XBL its kinda tedious but hell it works.

  29. Mintz says:

    Ewww, recording over XBL. Get outta here….

  30. Painkilla05 says:


  31. foomojive says:

    Yeah I’m gonna probably record over skype with another app. Similar to hotrecorder but for the mac. We will have PERFECTLY synchronized tracks this way, but my voice will be the only high-quality one. The rest will be recorded after they’re transferred over VOIP via Skype. It’s worth it though for a bunch of reasons I won’t go into.

  32. Painkilla05 says:

    And Freak can have eps out much faster.

  33. GLewis says:

    syning is not hard at all i dont see the problem

  34. foomojive says:

    I don’t either but hey, if it’s all one track, syncronization problems are impossible! Yay!

  35. Sugar Daddie says:

    Awww! Does that mean no more looong silences? :(

  36. Halo Ninja says:

    By the way guys, thanks for saying roffelkopter on the show. Got is stuck in my vocabulary and I’ve said it about 50 times in one day. Lol. ^^
