Live From Inside A Colon? 22

Well, we weren't really sure where we were this week, but Chris DiBona stopped by anyway, and we talked about AOL's filtering, Nvidia's new X servers, and not much else, but we managed to talk for awhile. Make sure to give it a listen if you've got the time.

  • Carmen. He's a rapper. He's an R&B crooner. He's rock & roller. He is the ultimate musical giggalo.

    Kurt needs to show up sometime relatively soon. Perhaps he could fill in for Rob next time he's gone.

    I'm sure he would enjoy it. :)
  • The TB is nothing like the MC. The TB was a mono bass synth The MC is a all in one rompler for DJ people who go: "hey it says 303". Cowboy Neil should get some real synths. No more Groove approved geeks in space.
  • Oh you bastards I'm gonna sue. Well ok I'm not but I can't beleive you forgot to insult the Irish We Will not be denied.

    Anyway, Ok there is a DVD of Castle of Caglisotro with a digitaly remastered visual and a remade music score should be cool, a lot better than Battle Athletes

    Please any listener to Geeks in Space go to YTV.com and than to their gundam section and say that you liked the show. If they decide to air it Digimon is gone

    Enough about Anime, like usual the show was preety funny, but lets face it an hour would just be the best anyway having Chris is always a good episode. But I would really love to hear Kurt as a guest, or that girl from Jennicam cause I was looking around thesync and apprently she has a show too. Oh yaa about Christian music some of it is great, I was just sorta clicking around the channels and heard this great rift like just the coolest then all of a sudden I hear the lyrics "God is good, God controls me" I don't know about you but that just sorta freaked me out.

    Then theres the stupid pledge of aligance that all ontario kids will have to say next year but that is a completly diffrent story, and message.

  • You mean I have listended to all 26 episodes at least twice, hour after hour of you guys talking trying to get another opinion on the events surrounding the open source community and after all this you say "At least we had a good time. Thats what this was all about"!!

    Anyway, you can be sure that I am just going to send Kurt a half-rate wiskey recie instaed of my Ultimate Drink...

  • acctually i think chris isn't the first guest to be on twice.
    wasn't emmett also present for the library filtering update???

    Does anyone know where to get vcds of lain? email me *** Linux: because a good pc is a bad thing to waste.
  • In almost every episode they mention that they will have to cut parts out during post production, but these parts are still in the episode, so what *are* they actually editing out of these episodes. It keeps me up all night wondering what these guys are talking about that needs to be cut out. Seriously though, does anyone have a clue where you could rent the Serial Experiments Lain DVDs, my local Blockbuster doesn't have them, and I'm too poor to afford them.

  • OK, once again, that Madonna interview thing is a column by Garry Trudeau of Doonesbury fame. Trudeau's name probably got removed by that right-wing AOL filter.

    Also, my vote for best musician who's, like, way into God 'n stuff goes to J. S. Bach.

  • I'll second that. Rob, however is irreplaceable.

  • by Anonymous Coward
    A guy who named himself Hemos, is ridiculing the title "Cowboy Bebop"! ^_~
  • First, the intro music was much better this show. Not so bad as when the intro goes way too long.

    Also, was that little blip at the end intended? Or was that a reflection of an error in "post"? Speaking of "post", Nate, what program do you use for the mixing, etc? I know there's Goldwave, but he's only got a Windows port. What is it that you use to mix GiS?

  • I really don't think anyone that posted they're story on slashdot would mind having there story being published in a print form. Why would anyone want to post their story to slashdot and not want more people to hear it? I know that I certainly would want to have mine.
  • Not almost every episode, every episode. They even admitted [during this episode] that they were too lazy to edit it out in post production.
  • First, what was the name of that THX movie they were talking about (or y'all, if any of you, the people _on_ the show). I couldn't really hear the title because, as usual, they were talking at the same time.

    Second, where was that madonna interview at, that sounded pretty funny when whomever dictated it did.

    Third, what was with the 2 minute long exit music? It's really hard to hear what anyone is talking about. I heard something about whisky and something about cutting something out in "post-production."

    Last, I don't think there is a worry that the they are going to offend anyone, I can hardly ever hear what they are saying. I never heard the classification of people they were insulting, so I figured they were just insulting the human race in general :).

  • Great Idea - WE WANT KURT!!!!

    He doesn't need to fill in for anyone, have him as a guest or something. BTW, since we're talking about guests and stuff - I really liked it when Roblimo was over!

  • ...and they just gave me a glass of gin.

    Best kind, and I believe that's called the "Churchill Martini" -- the recipe is:
    1. Strain chilled extra dry gin into glass
    2. Look at a bottle of extra dry vermouth
    3. Serve
    Even if I didn't want it quite that dry, it would still beat the half-and-half thing that I usually get when I forget to be specific enough in ordering. It's got to be dry (though I actually prefer Bombay Sapphire even though it's not as dry as Tanqueray or Beefeater). That orange juice thing sounds interesting in its own right, but THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS A SWEET MARTINI! I feel better now. By the way, I've discovered that really good things happen to the martini when you mix it in advance and keep it in the freezer overnight before drinking (shake it hard before pouring, though). Try it.

    As for whiskey: a twelve-year-old single-malt scotch is where it starts being drinkable, but it should really be eighteen. However, once you're there, drinking it any way but straight would be a waste. Spending >$40/bottle also has the nice side effect of preventing you from drinking too much.

    Also, about you guys having a thousand moderator points: assuming you were at least partly serious, why bother giving yourselves points instead of just unlimited access?

    Finally, this may not have been the longest one you've ever done (by my clculations, it's actually the second longest, after number 25), but I'm pretty sure it's the longest that you've ever gone on after saying that you were done. Were the last eight seconds intentional?

  • When hemos announced the release of the Hellmouth series in book form on /. it caused something of a heated debate about who really owns what they post and just how ethical it is to sell them in book form without asking anyone prior to publishing.
    check out the line at the bottom of this page "Comments are owned by the poster"
    /. does this to clear themselves of any possibility of a lawsuit ( and rightly so ).
    If the comments are owned by the poster, how can /. sell them?
    What's worse in my mind is that this book had been planned for sometime and yet no one at /. bothered to place a poll about how the original posters felt about this.
    When the book was announced on /. for the first time some of the original posters that contributed stories to the Hellmouth series were upset at this and denounced it.
    I ask people to boycot the upcomming book in my sig file because I thought part of what this community was about was against geeks being exploited for thier work and value.
    Thats what the book means to me, "Geeksploitation" after all wasn't it rob that coined that phrase in an earlier episode of Geeks in Space???
    Despite the fact that profits from the book will go to a charity or some such orginization, it does not change the fact that this book had been planned for some time without concent or approval from the majority of the creators ( the posters aka "Geeks" of which I am one ), besides which many of the geeks here experiance the same teasing and ridicule that most geeks face and to bring up these stories in the first place was probably a pretty tough thing to do.
    Those stories are in thier uncut form on /. in the archives read them and read the posts conserning the upcoming book.
    I like what Katz did with the hellmouth series, it's probably his best work,Geeks were and still are treated like crap after the columbine massacre.
    But, we should never allow our most basic principals to be exploited or forgotten.
  • Try looking it up next time, guys... I suppose I could have said "Prozac" or "Ritalin" to be a little more modern. My point being, this one really didnt' have a point.
