This Is Not a Humpdate, Dammit

In: Podcasts by Edie Sellers

19 Nov 2008

There are some weeks that you just wish you could hit the reset button on your life.

You’ll notice that there has not been a GameHounds or Humpdate for longer than usual. Yeah, we noticed, too.

Not for lack of trying. We had repeated, yet unrelated, problems with GameHounds Episode 42 over several nights. So, after a certain point you just throw your hands up and say, “F*ck it.”

Which is what we did — but we did so promising that we’d deliver a massive, mindblowing, best-evar Humpdate this week to make up for it.

We pre-prepped the show. We double-checked our show notes. Hell, we even freakin’ spellchecked our shownotes.

We got listener Spazmatt, our guest host, online good and early. We didn’t even freak out when we had some audio problems. “We can do this,” we thought. “We must do this. For the fans!”

And then –after two hours of recording some of the most hilarious listener-generated rants we’ve had in a long time — only then did we realize that we had done the podcast entirely wrong and it was entirely unlistenable.

So, again we threw our hands up in the air and said, “F*ck it.” Not for lack of trying, but because it became patently evident that someone up there did not want us to release a podcast this week. And no amount of determination on our part would change things.

Thus we present to you the Not a Humpdate. It is not a podcast. There is no discussion of gaming within. It’s not really anything except an explaination in detail of what happened and why we aren’t discussing gaming.

You’re welcome to listen, as we’ve tried to make it somewhat entertaining. However, if you don’t want to hear Edie and Spazmatt bellyache about all the messed up things that have happened in the last week, you’re also welcome to ignore it.

Hopefully this curse will abate sometime before Sunday, when we really do release a new GameHounds episode, this time with guest host Commander Tim joining Edie and Cooper Hawkes.

Enjoy… actually, scratch that. Don’t enjoy. Because This is Not a Humpdate. Dammit.

Yep, that does kinda suck. I know your probably frusterated but we can wait. I am sure you guys ain’t doing it for the money. That means odds are your doing it for us. So remember, we will always be here and appreciate what you all do. So every once in awhile when the sh!t hits the fan sit down, relax and have a nice stiff drink.

Well, maybe now you guys can have a real BADASS show on Saturday..

Wow, I can only imagine how awesome that should could have been. Thats just some bad luck and normal everyday human functionality mishaps. When I first started the ep, I thought something TRULEY tragic struck. Good to hear that everyone is willing to stick with it though. Your dedication is what makes the GAMEHOUNDS possible. The listeners getting grumpy though, thats a shame.

Hey everyone. Yes, Kosamus, it was indeed awesome! I had a blast recording it with Edie. I ony wish everyone could hear it. It really was so much fun! And, Hoshneer, I think the few stiff drinks I did have contributed to what made it so much fun! I’m looking forward to next Wednesday–it should be just as much of a blast. See y’all then.

(That’s one “t”, Edie!)

I’m sorry folks for screwing up Episode 42, and I’m even more sorry to have to say:

Tim can’t make Saturday’s show, he’s gonna roll with us another time.

On a bright side, now that I’ve finished Gears 2 as promised, I can give full impressions. I’ll vear away from spoilers.. :)

I wouldn’t worry about it. Look how long it took me to get my podcast mic to work propperly.

These things happen and sometimes can be beyond your control.. Just do your best, that’s all we can ask.
