Loxy Makes A Good point

Remember when Loxy and Grabia did that podcast?

You don't? Well, that's understandable. It was posted over a year ago with a few technical difficulties and then there was never any follow-up. It's too bad, too, because it was a beaut. Sure, a little rough around the edges, but for a first attempt it did all right.

In the comments of the "attention grab" post below, Loxy mentioned a YouTube debut. Now, I'll be honest, you don't want to see me in video (isn't print bad enough?), but we all know Lox is easy on the eyes.

What there's room for here, and I've tossed the concept around with friends, is an expanded media element to all this interminable "blogging". Personally, I'd love for Grabia and Loxy to to team up again and offer quick, 5 or ten minute musings on the Oilers and whatever. I'd love to see someone take up the YouTube route and do some video blogging/discussion.

Instead of reading about some of the things that happened at the bar while watching Pay-Per-View, why not record it, edit it down to the gems and post it the next day as a game follow up? You could have quick man on the street interviews, crazy fan interviews, hell, phone up bloggers across the world and get some opinions, explanations, etc.

On a further note, I know when I first started speedboating around the computer tubes I was mystified by all the tech terms relating to stats. Still am! A beginners guide somewhere would likely get a lot of attention, be fun to compile and help out a lot of fans, thereby raising the quality of discussion above "saw him good".

And now I've used up my alotted thinking time for the day. Back to BDSM jokes with Jabba the Hutt....

We are currently in negotiations. Unfortunately as a member of the radio media there is a clause in my contract about podcasting that I need to work through.

Yes, we keep planning on doing it, but then we start talking about Pretty in Pink vs Sixteen Candles, and we get distracted and forget about it.

Looks like a friend of mine beat me to it:

Loxy & Andy
I finally listened to it during the summer and I meant to comment. Somewhere. And then forgot about it.
Despite the difficulties of a first time production, it was enjoyable and I was looking forward to the next installment. I think you were on to something good there.

Well, I'll give it a listen, but there's always room for more. Just like pumpkin pie.
