If you haven't heard of the GBCP podcast then here's an episode to let you know what we're all about

I'm sure many of us are still dealing with the fact that Ryan Davis is gone. The pain of this has certainly been eased by the many blogs and posts on here which has shown just how many lives he's touched. The GBCP crew is also remembering Ryan Davis in the best way that we can. That's when we realized that the GIant Bomb community should do a big tribute to Ryan that would have as many community members as we can have. That's when a brilliant idea hit us all that was so obvious.

Instead of doing a regular episode of the GBCP podcast, why not do something more? So here's what we're going to do. The GBCP crew would like to hear your thoughts on Ryan's death. You can record your own thoughts about the big man himself and talk about whatever you want that. It can be an emotional discussion of how he's effected your life or it could be your favorite moment about Ryan. Anything goes but remember to keep it on topic. We'd also like for it to be short and sweet so keep it under 30 minutes at least. If you'd like to be a part of this please email the podcast at giantbombcommunitypodcast@gmail.com with your audio recording and your name on the site. I'll let you know if we'll use it on the podcast. Don't worry about being rejected. I won't be picky and may just use all of them. I want anyone from this lovely community to pitch in and make a Ryan Davis tribute to be proud of. This special tribute will work for any schedule as you can record it whenever you want to. It also doesn't have to be just one person talking about Ryan Davis. Try to be as creative as possible with this tribute. We'll let you know when this special episode of the GBCP podcast will go up.

Email giantbombcommunitypodcast@gmail.com your audio recording if you wish to be on the Ryan Davis Tribute episode. There is no set deadline but we'd like it to be next week's episode.

I'll definitely try to set aside some time to say something into a microphone (even if it's just me making whimpering sounds and saying "fuck!" over and over).

@chaser324: I'm sure we can edit out the REALLY incoherent parts. We all know its an emotional situation, and we will be super respectful of everyone's thoughts and not cut out any parts of anyone's stories.

I'll take you saying fuck over and over again. Sure most of us feel the same way. :(

Is there a chance for a sticky or something? Considering the amount of blogs and shit.

You can always bring company to talk about it. I know it's difficult to talk about it by yourself.

Yeah, I suppose I could ask my friend who also likes Giant Bomb. hm. I'll see what I can do. Even listening to Michael Pachter discuss Ryan gets you a little choked up right now. Hopefully plenty of people here will muster up some coherent(or incoherent) thoughts for the cast.

I'm not really much of a talker, and I don't like the way I sound at all. The recording I sent is extremely short, and probably will be the shortest out of all the recordings. However, my thoughts were to the point and very simple. So don't feel bad if your recording is too short or simple if your friend doesn't agree to record with you, because I can tell you that mine will be guaranteed to be much shorter than yours and anyone else who does one.

Don't feel embarrassed about how your stories sound! Everybody is different and has a different voice and personality. Everything we've gotten sounds great!

Thinking about contributing to this but I don't currently have a microphone or anything to make a digital recording. I honestly wouldn't know what to say as just another faceless user who never met him.

Do you have a laptop? Or a smartphone? You could probably take audio from either of those. Doesn't have to be anything special. Just as long as we can hear you. None of us are particularly special, but we all have something to offer.

@mezmero: you could probably pick up an old rock band mic super cheap at a GameStop and those work great. Really anything you have to say is appreciated. The more personal and unique the better.

@truthtellah: The time to beat is 26 seconds. =-P However, I'm seriously thinking about resubmitting a longer and better one as I want to add a few things to what I already said, because I'm not happy with the one I sent in.

Hey guys, thanks for all your submissions so far I've been editing them for clarity and getting them ready for compiling, and they've all been great and extremely touching to hear.

@mezmero (and anyone else)If you want to contribute but would rather not (or cannot) speak, please feel free to email us a text submission and myself or another member would be more than happy to read it for you.

@nyxfe: Damn... how long do I have to re-record mine and send mine in? I wanted to get to it today, but I wasn't able to do it because I couldn't get a moment alone (without my mother listening in to what I say). Once I get that moment alone without her knowing, I'll be doing that recording immediately.

Well I planned on compiling them around Sunday night/mon morning, so plenty of time. Also I thought yours was fine, but feel free to re-record!

Do you want me to rip the audio from that and include it? If you have the raw audio handy email it giantbombcommunitypodcast@gmail.com

@nyxfe Email sent.

@rorie Is that you embedding your own hot video, or mine? Because I *only* see doggie cuteness above me. As for the settings I'm using...

I have tried setting it to private and back to public again, as well as turning off allow embedding and turning it back on. No go.

What happens when you try to embed my video right here, Rorie?

FIXED! Thanks!

Will definitely record something when I get home.

In the process of sending it now. There is some weirdness with the recording in the latter half I couldn't fix. But maybe you can.
