Pass The Whiskey - Episode 1: That's Our Title

Oh, hey! So...

I had this SUPER SECRET PROJECT IDEA... THING™ where there would be an all Whiskey Media site friendly podcast and we focus on the community and such, in an effort to spotlight and take a swig of that good ol' Whiskey fun. Or something. Maybe spotlight and profile a user and make a podcast biweekly. ...Obviously, this already needs an overhaul because I don't know what I'm doing and decided to just wing it despite constant sniffling. Sexy, oui?

   

So join me, slowbird, and JJWeatherman in our "Our Self Esteem is Super Low, and This Cannot End Well" launch of PTW! We talk about E3, prove how we aren't professional, express our exhaustion, and talk about magic and ponies!

Pass The Whiskey - Episode 1: That's Our Title 
 
Feel free to fire me a message or comment below with your input, heck, even tell me about what you had for lunch if you feel so inclined. And if you want to listen to JJWeatherman and send him your cool stuff, have at. I dare you, even! We also have a Formspring if you'd like to send us feedback/questions/hate mail anonymously. And if it's bad, maybe it won't be that bad, yes? Pardon my sniffles, I'll be healthy for next time. If that even happens... 
 
Things to work on: 
  • Everything
  • Don't let this turn into Slowbird's Comedy Hour Featuring Sparklykiss, that's letting the bad guys win.

i could use something to listen to while playing Fallout 3. i'll give it a listen at this very moment!

Posted by CharlesAlanRatliff

I'll be sure to give it a listen soon!

Edited by JJWeatherman

This is our first attempt at this, duders, so keep that in mind. We'll try to have a real plan next time, and hopefully it'll just continue to improve. :)

Posted by ZeForgotten

I'll give it a listen when I have more time.

Posted by AjayRaz

that was fun to listen to! it was good to listen to alongside fallout 3 because i was in a scary library. i'd totally listen to more of this kinda stuff !

Posted by rmanthorp

-checks to see if the microphone quality is good and the volume levels are not wack because amateur podcasts are usually the worst thing ever for stuff like that-

Awesome it totally checks out! Will download and listen to it later :D

Good stuff, keep up the good work!

Posted by Hot_Karl

I love it!

@AjayRaz@Thunderducky@VinceNotVance: Thanks, guys. :)

Maybe a bit more order to the discussion topics? But I have a feeling any kind of order might kill it, like adding matter to antimatter.
 
Hope this goes well for you guys, and that you maybe find a way to cycle important Whiskey Media community personalities in guest spots for many jovial times (since all the best podcasts have four people as is my understanding of podcast science.)

The plan is definitely to get some community guests, but we figured we'd get our bearings a bit first. Look for that, though! 
 
Also: Good lord, I need to stop giggling and speak more! D:

Fuck. You just had to go and trademark what was so going to be the title of my upcoming podcast too!

@Sparklykiss:  @JJWeatherman: Five minutes in and digging it. However NHL 12 is the shit. Post more when i'm done. 
@Abyssfull: Should have mailed it to yourself.
Posted by RE_Player1
My bandwidth is pretty limited but I might put this on my iPod shuffle and listen while I play basketball. Great title btw.

Alright now that I finished up I enjoyed and can't wait for the next one. I'll see about Forza scrub league I might jump in.

See, and you lot (Sparklykiss, at least) thought I was crazy when I said you were going to absolutely crush We Are Race Night on day one. This is a fabulous response! I'm sure you already have destroyed our measly downloads.

I'll give this a listen later, once I've gotten through my backlog of Bombcasts, and have more thoughts then.

I'll give it a whirl, why not.

Posted by Daniel

I love this, great work guys! Keep it up.

Posted by GoranP

Fun listen, loved all of the incredible Vita jokes.

Posted by 71Ranchero

Sounds good so far. Ill put it on my ipod and listen at work.

Posted by slowbird

@Sparklykiss: From your previous comments, I kinda figured you would write this off as a test and we would make our first "real" episode next time! But hey, people seem to like it, so I guess it worked out. I don't know how or when, but we need to work on some kind of XML feed so people can subscribe someday!

Also I was the only one with any structure thanks to my E3 Games list! We should feature a different list each episode, maybe from different Whiskey Media members if they give us permission to read them!

Edited by Sparklykiss

@Mento: Wait, what? What's this "oar-der" you speak of? I don't understand!

@PsEG: Pshh, girl, you do not know what you are talking about.

@GoranP: Oh boy, then you should hear all the other jokes I have! (Or not! Especially if you love yourself!)

Thanks everyone for checking this out and such. Will say that I had anticipated this just falling back a few pages and be gone forever within 20 minutes. Derp.

EDIT:

@slowbird: Well, yeah. I was. I was going to be all "DIS IS DA DUMB" delete and move on. But after not sleeping and being bored, I said fuck it. Saying fuck it leads to this sort of thing, so, ha cha cha! I have a few ideas (lolnoidon't) about what to do next, so... Yeah! Ponies!

Listening now. Great idea, I was wondering when someone would make a Whiskey-wide podcast.

Posted by slowbird

@Sparklykiss: There will definitely be more ponies. In fact, here's more ponies right now.

Also, people...is the opening song too long? Tell me if it is.

Oh yeah, if you guys like to hear my dumb nasally voice making bad jokes, you might want to listen to another community podcast run by PsEG where we talk about Forza and other racing stuff!

Posted by Aronman789

Pretty cool, looking forward to more. 
 
To be honest, I thought this was going to be horrible.

This is getting promo'd on the home page.

I like this a bunch. If / when this podcast ends up on iTunes, you have a subscriber! Also:

@JJWeatherman: From one guy who kinda hated GTA 4 to the other: you should really check out Red Read Redemption. Not only is it the first Rockstar game I've ever truly enjoyed, but I enjoyed it to its completion. And I never beat games!

Posted by LordXavierBritish

PONIES.

Edited by Trace

After giving this a listen, I have to say: Great job, seriously. I know there were some concerns about how the recording went, but it came out almost entirely fine.

The conversation does get a little too disjointed near the end half as you're scrambling for subjects, but I think you're well aware of that. Sparklykiss, you're clearly taking the role of host during this podcast, so don't be afraid to command that conversation. Bend it to your will.

This podcast is still The Slowbird Comedy Hour Featuring Sparklykiss (and Friends) in my heart, but Pass The Whiskey is acceptable as a name. For now.

Have you guys played or finished ANY game ever? 

Posted by essi2

That was really good.

Abit more structure and it'll be just right.

Posted by mracoon

Finished listening to it and I thought it was a great start. Getting a bit more structure would be useful and having someone from Comic Vine (you could ask Cory/Undeadpool) would make it more representative.

That was a really fun listen. Also, thumbs up to whoever came up with the title.

I just learned to speak. Give me a break.

And welcome back.

Posted by Hizang

Listened to about 5 miniutes of it, I will listen to the rest later, really good guys well done.

@slowbird: That video made my heart so happy. And watching this more than 3 times in a row leads to tears. :D :D :D <3 <3 <3 PONIES.

@Aronman789: Thanks! And it could be horrible! You just don't know it yet!

@ethan: You're getting promo'd! :D (Thanks, Ethan.)

@LordXavierBritish: PONIES. Also: CUPCAKES. SO SWEET AND TASTY, CUPCAKES.

@PsEG: I'll try, but you know how I am with that stuff. D: Thanks a ton, though. Really.

@blacklabeldomm: Yes! I completed Earthbound in 2005!

@Underachiever007: Charmander doesn't haven't thumbs. BTW, it was me. It was all me. I'm humble.

And we really appreciate all the nice feedback and such. Yep. :D And even though the next recording isn't 'til the Monday after next you guys have me supernervousohgod. :D

Posted by slowbird

@Sparklykiss: did someone say CUPCAKES?

NOW THE 8-BIT VERSION!

Posted by Sparklykiss

@slowbird: I just sang along to the 8-Bit version... And with a bit too much confidence, too. I don't regret a damn thing!

@JJWeatherman: Yo, JJ. Can I get in on this at some point, assuming you guys use Skype to record?

We do use Skype.

As far as being on, you should ask Sparklykiss. She wears the pants on this podcast. :P I do know that we already have a couple of guests in mind, and with this being recorded every other week, it could be a little bit.

Posted by GreggD
@JJWeatherman: Hey, I don't mind waiting. But yeah, I'll send her a PM about it. Thanks. :)

At this rate, it may just become a weekly thing. And since I sat around not wanting to upload it 'til the other day, recording this upcoming Monday would be too soon, we can prepare after this week break. I dunno! Words! Ideas! I should be doing my essay!

Listened to this this morning, pretty entertaining. It would be cool to have a 4rth spot as a hot seat and have a new person every episode.

Posted by Mars_Cleric

Downloaded, will listen to it after my exam tomorrow

so it better be worth it...or else...

Posted by Claude

Loved it. I give it five scoops of ice cream.

Posted by Sparklykiss
@Atramentous: Thanks! Hopefully we can get a good flow and stuff. 
@Mars_Cleric: That's not intimidating, oh no no no. D: 
@Claude: Sweet! :D Dibs on the chocolate, guys. Oh. And blueberry. Slowbird and JJ have to fight for the others! Thank you, Claude.
