Coming September 9: The Big Live Live Show: Live!

Posted by Jeff (5329 posts) -

        

Hey, what are you doing on September 9? Actually, wait, don't answer. I don't care what the answer is--just cancel whatever it is. Because what you should be doing on September 9 is setting up your largest computer monitoring monitor and aiming a web browser squarely at us, because at 10AM Pacific Daylight Time, we're kicking off an all-day broadcast that's going to start down here in the basement and, by the end of the day, explode into a full-on street party.

The Sites de Whiskey Grande (that's us, Tested, Screened, and Comic Vine, I think) will be coming together to present something like eight hours of delirious action, featuring game demos, interviews, something that closely resembles a world premiere, some sort of dance-off, footage of what goes on in our underground bar, the ability to ask us questions, some sort of sandwich-related fiasco, and much, much more!

(Actually, I should state that we might not have a sandwich-related fiasco, and that just about all of the above is subject to change. It's a live demo, folks.)

But I can 100-percent for-sure guarantee that this will be when you'll hear the super-specifics about our upcoming network-wide membership program, which will let you sign up for hot-ass services like higher-quality videos, a mobile-optimized version of the site, and... well, actually, how about I just show you the mobile-optimized version of the site, courtesy of this video shot by Mike Horn and Dave Snider earlier today... cool?

You know, Dave's been posting a bit more about the upcoming paid membership plan over on his blog, so you might want to check that out for a sneak peek at what's coming your way. Otherwise, I'm going to get back to haranguing guests to make sure they're actually going to show up, and we'll see you on September 9!

That's because Anime Vice has no editors, at least not at the Whiskey office.

#31 Posted by Horace (141 posts) -

If only you still have Kessler as an intern.  You could have made him stay locked away on his own stream playing through the broken version of Kane and Lynch 2 before he could join in.  But t'is not to be :(

#32 Posted by pbhawks45 (819 posts) -

Excited. School's gonna be going on, but hopefully you guys will archive the show on JustinTV.

#39 Posted by Jeffk38uk (725 posts) -

Hmm, reading snide's blog on the whole subscriber deal, you guys are really making sure Whiskey Media is accessible to free and paid fairly. Gotta love that. 
 
Do hope this live live show of live will be archived when we cant watch it live.

It's because that site blows, is operated by robots, and is going under before then.
#44 Posted by RustyScrew (83 posts) -

wow that's like the 3rd day of school for me
but i'm on the east coast so i'll only miss like almost 2 hours

Bring it. You'll spare yourself a lot of hassle if you introduce it to drunken shenanigans, schizophreniacs, video games, vulgarisms and obscenities at an early age.

#47 Posted by Jazz (2335 posts) -

After just watching the first hour of D-Wars, I will be happy if I never see a dragon ever again. 
DO YOU HEAR ME BIOWARE

#48 Posted by V_Ben (115 posts) -

wow, 8 hours? For the love of god this better be recorded in its entirety. I have an exam the next day! :(

#49 Posted by buzz_killington (3655 posts) -

I hope it's Justin.tv so I can stream it in class.

#50 Posted by Ratcabbage (269 posts) -

The "sandwich-related fiasco" has me intrigued. I'm very pro-sandwich.
