Podcast pilot episode is in processing

Check it out here, it may still be a day or so.

A whole lot of work and a whole lot of waiting for a five-minute podcast (only two-and-a-half of which is actual reading), but I’m learning.

I was delighted to remember that my good pal Oliver St. John had gifted me with an excellent sci-fi musical riff to use in a book trailer I never ended up making, and so I had something neat to put in here as a mood enhancer. It had some Strauss (Richard and Johann) from 2001: A Space Odyssey, which I also kept but separated out into additional bits. It’s all arranged by Ollie though.

I quite like the sound editor in this program, and I love the way I can edit out my snuffling and snorting after I’ve read a segment. I fucking sound like a coke addict and I had none of the fun of actually getting to take tons of coke in order to sound that way.

Still, not the best production values around – still a work in progress. I’ll put up the next part ASAP.

About Hatboy

I’m not often driven to introspection or reflection, but the question does come up sometimes. The big question. So big, there’s just no containing it within the puny boundaries of a single set of punctuationary bookends. Who are these mysterious and unsung heroes of obscurity and shadow? What is their origin story? Do they have a prequel trilogy? What are their secret identities? What are their public identities, for that matter? What are their powers? Their abilities? Their haunted pasts and troubled futures? Their modus operandi? Where do they live anyway, and when? What do they do for a living? Do they really have these fantastical adventures, or is it a dazzlingly intellectual and overwrought metaphor? Or is it perhaps a smug and post-modern sort of metaphor? Is it a plain stupid metaphor, hedged around with thick wads of plausible deniability, a soap bubble of illusory plot dependent upon readers who don’t dare question it for fear of looking foolish? A flight of fancy, having dozed off in front of the television during an episode of something suitably spaceship-oriented? Do they have a quest, a handler, a mission statement, a department-level development objective in five stages? I am Hatboy. https://hatboy.blog/2013/12/17/metalude-who-are-creepy-and-hatboy/

    Actually the sound editor is annoying as fuuuuuck and cuts whole wads of sound clip out for no reason, and then when you try to put music over it, it puts the music over an old clip instead. Working on it.

        Yay! You are the reason my Line Went Up just now. I added a second episode, a bit longer. Man, that editing process is a huge mess. I think I may have to make episodes a paragraph at a time rather than record a whole chapter and then edit it in bits (otherwise it gets glitches in it and random chunks get edited out, and I need to listen to it so many times, I hate it by the end)

        I don’t know when, or even if I’ll get Episode 3 done at this point. The editor is so fucking bad, and I’m overworked as it is.
