Brent's Other Podcast
Host: Brent
Brent from can't talk about MMO games all the time, so this audio, video, screencast collection is an opportunity for him to spread out a bit and discuss other topics. All are guaranteed to be nerdy. And he'll be sure to talk about games plenty; it is unavoidable.

Brent's Other Podcast #1
Fri, 6 Feb 2009 04:38:00 GMT [download/play]

Brent from needs yet another forum for self-expression (apparently) and has decided that "Brent's Other Podcast" will serve that end quite nicely. This is the introductory episode where Brent talks a bit about this show's objective, the status of the VirginWorlds MMO News Podcast and Twitter.

I think this will be both good for you and for us.

Nice to feel less restricted and to talk about other things, helps you keep the passion.

Look forward to more of these.

...I'm telling ya, video is it man! That's it right there! That's the next thang with the internet. It's real, it's IT. Too bad I am so ugly, but still, doesn't stop me from making videos.

Keep em up! Sometimes you just need a lil something different in ya life to spice things up.
No, not THAT Brent. Weirdo.

Don't care about twitter or blogs but I did/do enjoy your original podcast. It was a great way to pass the time while I work. So long as the topics are mmo related I'll keep the podcast in my itunes.

It was nice to be able to see your facial expressions it adds a lot to what you are saying, at least to me. I have a slight hearing disorder that is cognitive not physical, and part of why I listen to the podcasts here is in an attempt to train myself to retain information I hear.

But a vidcast once in a while makes for a nice break. I enjoy Beau's vidcasts too, though the last one was odd... Silly Beau :) Hope you do more of these, it's nice to put a face to a voice!

Thanks for explaining Twitter. I'm one of those "don't quite get it types," but I can now appreciate its usefulness.

The video is a nice touch. That scenery is all too familiar.

Thanks for the update, Brent. Good to finally hear from you and I hope you're hangin' in there. Just wanted to add my 2 cent vote against video podcasts. I listen to podcasts while commuting in my car and so have no use for video. Plus, my player seems to choke on most video formats. Plus, I've got about a zillion more things I'd rather do in my precious free time at my computer that watch video podcasts, like say, play MMOs! So anyway, no big deal. You do whatever suits you best. Just wanted to put forth a dissenting opinion.

Keep up the great work!

I think it is nice to know haw someone looks when their talking, it puts more personality into it for me. Although I still like sound too.

Talking about something like twitter is cool because it helps me get on the same page as everyone else in case i'm missing anything, and that is good when you are part of a group.

It's good to see visual things to help explain stuff your talking about but this was great for the topic this time as a starter.

Props are always good but not sure what prop could be used as far as to explain twitter but maybe other subject.

Actualy your facial expesions worked pretty well in talking about stuff too.

I was hoping to hear the gaming news. Don't really care about the inner workings of your site or twitter. If I want to know about twitter I would go to a site about twitter. I just want to know about MMO's.

I don't get why you would need to do a video podcast when all you are doing is talking. I also don't get why you would do a podcast about podcasting. That's like a musician doing a CD about being a musician doing a CD. Doesn't make sense.

Think I will stick to podcasts about gaming

'Impressive' by Shalimar616

It looked like 1 take! Very impressive sir -- I was expecting at least 1 edit somewhere but it looked like a contiguous stream of Brent goodness. Is anyone else wondering if he was shooting with the camera in his other hand? Or was there some one else in the truck? Some of the camera angles suggest it was a solo shoot -- even more stunning.

I am now Twitterzized and am looking for other tweeters.

My twitter handle is ShalimarTroy for those interested.

I hope everything works out for you with your diificulties.

'Self-shot - Single-take' by Brent
Submitted on 2009-02-09 01:35:26 CST
Yes, you're right, Troy, I shot that in one continuous 16 minute shot with the camera in my hand. Oddly enough, I never practiced it and write no notes. Honestly, it was a lucky morning. Number is on the way is is hardly as well executed. :)
