D’OH!!!

Doh

Episode 4 is late!!

I had no time to finish editing today. The day job kept me for 13 hours and then I helped a friend until five minutes ago. I have to be back at work in eight hours and forty-five minutes and I didn’t finish helping that friend.

I’ll edit during lunch. Who needs to eat?

Episode 3 – Almost Not Quite Semi-Professional.

So obviously I sound like a confused dork night now.

- Early quote from today’s show.

ale_logo

We may have found our motto.

The getting-to-know-you’s continue this week as we meet two more of our revolving group of Co-Hosts. Crystal and Rasheen step in for the evening to give us a glimpse into their lives and into their personalities so you listeners know even more of what you’re getting yourself into.

Part 2 of Screenplay Talk, Part 3 of The Sound Saga, and Part 1 of Wedding Dress Update.

All that, plus art and food.

Aren’t they great? They’ll be back for episode five.

We’ll be talking Dexter on that one.
[EDIT: Wait! I have a better idea.]

There may be spoilers.
[EDIT: There WILL be spoilers, but it's not happening on Episode 5.]

I’m giving double advanced super warning.
[EDIT: Yes. Yes I am.]

If there is some nerdy salute or an obscure and difficult to pronounce German word that would help in this situation, please e-mail the show at anotherlearningexperience@gmail.com and let us know.

The Ever Changing Logo, Cheap Live Music, and Shameless Self Promotion.

Another Learning Experience is more than just the ALEpodcast. It’s group participation.

…and the first thing I’d like to invite you to participate in is the design our logo. I want to change it. Often.

So, send me your designs in a 1400 x 1400 TIFF, PNG, PSD, or JPG and (unless it’s corrupted or grossly offensive) chances are I’ll use it.

Second, I’m taking suggestions on where I can hear local bands play original music where I won’t get gouged at the bar or at the door and won’t get stabbed in the parking lot.

I’d like to start promoting local music.

And finally, I’d like to invite anyone who wants to record an intro for the show to grab a mic and say this:

“Hi, I’m ____________ from ________________, and you’re listening to Another Learning Experience with Gerald Ortega.”

The beginning can be changed (“Hi. This is…”,”Hi. We’re….”, etc.), and you can add some personal stuff to the middle (“I just won the 10 meter dash!”, “…and We’re the cast of Annie Get Your Gun!”, etc.) – but please always keep the “and you’re listening to…” part the same.

I promise, as long as it’s audible and family friendly, it will get used eventually!

Episode 1 – Well, Well, Well…

It puts the lotion on its skin, or else it gets the hose again.

ale_logo_2

Hi Everybody!

Before you begin listening, I want to warn you that our premiere episode had some technical difficulties.

Technically, I’m a dumb-ass.

Just before hitting record, I hit “reset” and all of my careful mic settings went out the window and instead it sounds like I’m coming to you from inside the echoiest echo chamber to ever echo an echo.

…and my poor co-host James sounds like I’ve thrown him down a well inside that echo chamber.

But, because this show in-and-of-itself is a learning experience, even the mistakes go public. You’ve been warned. It sounds bad – especially the first 15 minutes. OK… 30 Minutes.

And with that, here’s square one.

What are you people trying to say?

Stats for week 0

Sorry we missed our goal of getting Episode 1 online on Monday.

I completely forgot Easter was coming when I said that. I couldn’t ask people to come in on a holiday!

Not to worry, episode 1 is recording later today and this one will be up and playing before I go to bed Monday night.

Our Starting Line-Up Is Half Full – One Week Left!

I’ve emailed, spoken, and met with a couple of dozen people – and so far three people are still interested in being part of our Original Cast…all of them men.

I wonder why so many women are apprehensive to venture into a strange man’s apartment all alone, where they know he has feet and feet of cables and lots of sound-proofing?

….ok… now it’s starting to make sense.

Ok. I’m being factious. I actually had quite a few women interested, but the Saturday schedule just did not work for any of them.

.

So… It looks like episode one will be a bit dude-centric. However, the search continues because I feel that without female input this will just be half the show it can be.

Speaking of Episode 1, it will be going up April 8th instead of the 1st – because I totally blanked about Easter. Oops.
