Firstly I need to apologize for the fiasco with the with the RSS feed today. It has been brought to my attention by one of my listeners, that my podcasts are too large for mobile device users to download.
I have been reducing the podcast files to at least half size. Unfortunately, I managed to delete my RSS feed in the process & had to start over. This also means that if you subscribe to the podcast, you will find 13 new episodes, although, just like DAVE, they are only repeats, albeit, in a more manageable size.
I am now waiting to see if iTunes will play ball, as none of The Garbage POD details are listed there. It could take a couple of days, but we will have to see.
The Letchworth Food & Garden Festival is this weekend.
There should be something for everybody over the two days & hopefully, the weather will be like the weekend, just gone.
Below is a sneaky peak at the programme for the event, have a gander & I hope to see you in the Garden City over the 19th & 20th between 10am & 4pm.
I wasn't 100% happy with episode 8 of TGP. This was down to technical issues, firstly my Tascam DR-07 decided not to give me any track information for the mp3s that I was trying to play into the show.
This meant I had to blindly skip tracks & hope the next track was the right one. To resolve this issue I had to remove the SD card from the Tascam & insert directly into the laptop. However this led to another issue.
I was using the laptop to talk with Adri during the Show on Skype, so this meant the mp3s on the SD card & Skype, were using the same channel on the mixer. Towards the end of the show, strange noises were coming through Skype (kind of like a tropical rain storm), which interfered with any items that I wanted to play into the show. I had to abandon a couple of items, as I thought the noise would have been too loud to understand what was being said.
However I have received some positive feedback about the episode, from Benjamin & Cariann Higginbotham of Spacevidcast, who said that for my first attempt at recording a Solely Space related episode, it was really good (actually Cariann also added that she liked our accents too).
These kind words made me feel whole lot better about the episode, but as I have said before, it's a big learning curve for us.
The UK release of Iron Sky took a weird turn a week ago, when Revolver – our local distributor – suddenly released the new plans for their long-anticipated UK cinema release. To the amazement of many – including ourselves – their plan is to put Iron Sky in UK theaters for *just one day*, 23/05/12 and then never again.
This is ridiculous, small independent cinemas, like The Broadway in the Garden City, will not show a film that is only available for one day as it is not economical to do so (The Broadway only has 4 screens).
Why are Revolver doing this? someone must have the answers?
If you have never heard of Iron Sky, here is the trailer for it.
