Foycast XII: Curse of the Skype Recorder

Foycast XII: Curse of the Skype RecorderI thought it was only the number 13 that was supposed to be cursed. Turns out 12 would be an unlucky number when it comes to the Foycast because this 12th (technically the 13th) episode of my totally senseless podcast was cursed by a Skype recorder.

I did a 107-minute long Foycast with Matt Fini about three weeks ago. That show has since been lost to the ages because the Skype recorder decided for whatever reason to not record the show even though it indicated that recording was on. A damn shame because that show, to be completely honest, was much livelier than this second show I did a week ago with Uncle Creepy.

Fortunately, or unfortunately, depending on how you react to the show you’re about to listen to, it also fell victim to the curse of the Skype recorder. The show I did with Uncle Creepy ran nearly 80 minutes, but shortly after the 40-minute mark the recording turned so wonky half the show became unsalvageable. You even hear some of those problems beginning when my voice briefly begins to echo. This forced me to edit the show with a very hard, very abrupt ending that pretty much comes out of nowhere.

Suffice to say that Skype recorder has since been deleted from my computer and replaced with what is hopefully a better version that won't destroy future Foycasts because heaven forbid the world be denied the Internet’s 227,000th most useless podcast.

So if 40 minutes of Red Dawn remake discussion and the horror that is Vampire Dog is enough to entertain you, you’ll probably enjoy this 12th installment of the Foycast.

I swear the next show will be much better.

    It wasn't that bad...unless saying it was will guilt you into doing another one. Then it sucked.

    Anyway, as one of your (possibly psychotic long time listeners, I remember you guys talking about doing an all-Bigfoot Foycast a long time ago. Any interest in digging up that idea?

    That had to be the most painfully boring, awful, horrendous, waste-of-time, piece of shit, tedious, mind-numbing, atrocious, abortion of a Podcast in the entire history of internet Podcasts.

    I give it 2 and a half knifes. 3 knifes if I’m feeling generous.

    The DC guys really seem to enjoy making podcasts like a kid enjoys going to the dentist, lol.

    The real shame is that all of the good stuff from this edition was lost due to the Skype recorder. Yay.
