AV Rant #193: Making It

August 13th, 2010

One more week and Dina is back. For this week we have a special guest host – Tom’s wife! See for yourself if he affords her any more respect than anyone else. On tap for this week – The Audioholics videos, iTV, the Dell tablet, and 120Hz cables. Blockbuster – back from the dead or just on life support? Magnolia moves up in the world? Tom gets his first delivery (from Porcupine Tree), his second (from OtterBox) is on the way. Thanks for listening and don’t forget to vote for us at Podcast Alley!

    Bwa-ha-ha-ha-he-he! Dude. Tanel rocks. The whole green screen thing? Comedy gold :p I have to believe that she was just kidding, but she sounded pretty convincing (and there WAS that whole thing with Dina not knowing who Stephen Hawking is).

    Anywho, great to have Tom back; echo-y room and all 😉 Really fun to hear Tanel! And looking forward to Dina’s return next week!!

    Alternate titles for this podcast:

    “5 inches equals 10 inches – Tales of Miscalculation from an Engineer”

    “THIS… IS… MARRIED LIFE!” (spoken to the tune of SPARTA)

    Always great to here Tanel as my wife and I both listen to OFM. This podcast very much reminded me of daily life with my wife. She’s always saying, “It’s not that I don’t care your hobby, it’s just all I care about is that it works when I want to use it.”

    I just wanted to make a comment that the Dell tablet isn’t really a tablet at all. It’s just a big phone. The Droid X and EVO 4G are both 4.3″ phones, the Dell just went a little bigger to 5″.

    Well first of all your log in for this site is screwed up! It always rejects the proper log in until I purposefully enter an incorrect log in and then when I go back and put in the correct one then it will work…some kind of issue with cookies and firefox I guess?

    Great to have you back doing the podcast, great to have the Mrs. on as well. I hope you follow through with the PT interview that would be awesome! make sure to ask them about what kind of av equipment they have? just curious. Hope it is a long unedited multi segment.

    Funny that you just got the PT Blu-ray “Anesthetize” mine just came in the mail Saturday. Outstanding audio quality. I hope Blu-ray audio really succeeds as a format. I got to see PT on Saturday in San Diego. They did a good set (1 hour 10 min) not a full show as there were two other bands on the bill. The venue is small so you could really hear and see them well except for Gavin who (because of the small stage) was sort of shoved in a back corner, but you definitely knew he was there, his base drums shook my guts. The bad thing was a small group of drunk “Coheed” fans were constantly heckling SW and really spoiled things up to a point. Apologies to the Tree for San Diego (even though it isn’t my town)

    The echo was just incredible, could be the ‘This Week In Spelunking’ podcast if I didn’t know better.

    And hearing Tom tell Tanel “THIS is five inches” made me very glad you don’t have ooVoo working yet….
