Listener Feedback [Jun. 4th, 2006|09:59 am]

Here's something you guys can file under "Bonus Material". Since I wasn't going to be on this past episode, I thought I'd try to be part of the show, at least in spirit. So I wrote out a gag listener feedback letter. Here's how it went:

Dear Alpha Counter Guys,


Your show licks balls. Whoever let these two homos on the air clearly must be inbred. One of them sounds like an epileptic monkey with turrets syndrome while the other sounds like he not only fell off the short bus, but got run over by it. What sense does it make to base a show around a game genre that isn't even covered by their own network? Street Fighter games haven't been hot since the last time The Simpsons was funny. And that episode about porn; was that a sweeps week?

As an avid listener of internet radio, I'm outraged. I will certainly never allow Alpha Counter to be played in my home, nor my friends. This show will be my inspiration to campaign people never upgrade from dailup.


Sincerely,


-The Grey Ghost


PS - Where's Bridger?



Unfortunately, I don't think Matt caught the gag, because his only reply was "Uh...what?" Ah, well. I thought it would be funny.

Alpha Counter Post-Pwn3d This Week [Jun. 3rd, 2006|06:47 pm]

So....crap.

Yeah, this will be the first week that Alpha Counter will not go on air in some form. For myself, I've just been beaten down by my work and haven't been able to work on anything creatively. Borderline burnt out. So this weekend, I'm trying to relax as much as possible to regroup and unwind.

Matt was cool with trying to go on without me. I was kinda curious to see how he'd do solo. Before we went on air for the first time, we did a couple test episodes, one of which was of me hosting the show by myself, as a means of preparing for the case of Matt calling out one week. So I know how I'd do solo. But Matt looked around for a temp co-host (possibly Bridger or Caemdare) to kinda fill the void. I'm cool with that, though. I'd be just as curious to see how that would go too. I'm just one where when I have to let go of the reigns of a project that I'm a part of, it's interesting to see where that project goes without my contribution.

Sadly, at the last minute, Matt was called away for an emergency run for his job. Ain't that a bitch? But as I know from my own job, it happens. So, bummer... But whenever we find a drawback to the show, I always want to make it up to the audience. Kinda like how for the last week we couldn't be on, in addition to a "Best Of" show, I made sure that we contributed brand new material in the form of new commentaries from Matt and myself as well as a brand new rant that I had produced. For this week, I want to promise the audience that next week, we'll come back and fill up an extended 2 hour show. I think that by then I'll have rejuvenated enough and put together enough material to make it worth while.

See you next week, folks!
