The Weeklies - The Audio Edition
Once upon a time I gave audioblogging a shot. And then I stopped. Why? Well, there was the inevitable time commitment but that was pretty minor. What really stopped me was two-fold.
Fold 1 - I sound like a dork.
Fold 2 - I'm not all that funny when I don't have the benefit of hiding behind a keyboard and some heavy editing.
But I've put all these things aside at least for this week. I give you The Weeklies Podcast.
Now pardon me while I go cringe.

I liked it. Although you don't sound like I expected (and don't ask what I expected, 'cause I don't really know), but you definitely don't sound like a dork. I liked your musical selection too and agree that the summer is flying by.
Sweet - it's kind of nice to put a voice with the post. I actually liked it!!
You def don't sound how I expected lol but I'm digging it :D
Ok, who is it by?
The biggest downside to podcasts is that I actually have to listen to everything instead of just skimming over the bits that I don't find as interesting.
I liked that more than half of the podcast was a song. A nice song, too!
Strangely, you sounded like I thought you would! I agree with you that the summer is flying by and I am just not sure I'm ready for it to end (which I know it will do before I know it!).
loved it...I REALLY wanna know what book you are reading!
LOVE the song. Yep, also can't believe it's already July. But am looking forward to my vacation in a week! Then I'll be sad that the summer is half over!
Have a great weekend!
Don't cringe--I actually put my sorry-assed attempts at cover tunes up on the interwebs for people. I rather enjoyed this. And I now have another song to look up. Thanks. :)
Very enjoyable! PodCactus!
Can't listen at work :(
I'll be the dissenter here and say I like to read blogs. I'm a visual person. I can't do podcasts or audio books because I don't pay attention. My mind wanders, I need to be doing something else and then I have no idea what was said for the past 15 minutes.
Yeah, I really didn't expect you to sound like that. But I'm with Lisa - I'm definitely a reader.
I'm totally digging that song! Happy Friday.
I agree with Hannah...I like reading so I can skim what I'm interested in without having to pay attention to it all.
Have a great weekend!!
ahh , dont stop writing . I read you at lunch
I think we ALL have some degree of 'dork' in us, so if you put that aside, you sounded 'normal'!!!
While I'm used to listening to pod casts (my husband listens to Kevin Smith's pod casts religiously), I do like to have the text of what you're listening to or reading so I can reference them without needing to listen or re-listen. Speaking of which, I *need* to know what book you're currently reading -- no keeping us in suspense! ;o)
Overall, not a bad idea (pod cast), and I would not have listened to that song on my own... (I don't know how you find some of these bands!) but I liked it.
So, rock on with your dork self, and I'll do the same. ;o) Have a great weekend!
I liked hearing your voice! I'm with the others by saying your voice is not what I expected but digging it.
Thanks for the new music!
I'm a reader but hearing you every once in a while is cool!
Why did I think you would be much more nasally...and uptight (just because you vaguely resemble Jon Cryer doesn't mean you will sound like him. Thank God.)? I didn't expect you to have such a deep voice and soooo mellow sounding. Loved it. And the song too. I think this is great and fun to do every now and then.
The comments are fairly split between those who thought your voice would be different and those who thought you sounded as they expected. I'm in the latter group and I have no idea why people have expectations of these things, but we do and here we are. :-)
So how do I go about adding you to my Goodreads friends list? Is that weird? I usually go there anyway to find out more about books you mention and then add them to my 'to-read' list (or not, as the case may be). Being "friends" would make it a lot easier.
Have an excellent weekend!
AUDIOBLOG FOREVER!!!! How happy am I right now? HAPPY. And I had a BITCH of a week.
And Beth and Mia and Owen should do the same. ;)
Thank you thank you thank you thank you!!!!
Also, if you do have a random dresser kind of thing, HAPPY to buy it from you.
Oh, and Spock's Beard? Have you given up and decided prog-rock is the only way to go? ;)
Seriously, long, busy, hard week (still love my job, just so damned busy and a little lonely). THANK YOU!
LOVED it. And the song was ace. It frightens me how fast time goes by.. makes me very sad, actually.
I like reading, but would love a podcactus once a week or so.. :)
I probably said it another time you posted an audioblog, but your voice is just a bit deeper than I expect and it throws me off. (Not that I expect you to sound like a squealy little girl or anything, just more tenor than bass or something haha.)
