Shamoozal Radio #6 Whore Daddy Call-in: What type of fanboy do you hate the most?

Okay, we’re going to try something new for episode #6 of the podcast. We have set up a Skype line for you guys to ‘call’ and leave us a voice message that we’ll use for our whore-daddy segment.

The topic is “What type of fanboy do you hate the most?“.

Now obviously, most of us equate fanboism with video games, but it’s not limited to that. Comics, Movies, TV Shows, Wrestling are all fair game. Please limit your message to roughly 30 seconds and try to keep the cursing to a minimum (otherwise Joe has to waste time bleeping you, Shamoozal is for the children). During the recording session this upcoming weekend we will listen to the best messages, play them as part of the show and pick the best one. The winner will receive a free Shamoozal T-Shirt of their picking from the Shamoozal store.

SRP#6 is being recorded this upcoming Saturday (March 10th) so we need to have all submissions in no later than Friday, March 9th. That gives you just 5 days to get going, here’s what you need to do:

1. Download and install the Free Skype client: http://www.skype.com/download/
2. After you install, create a new Skype Name (also free).
3. Once you’re logged in, Click ‘Add’ in the Contacts tab and type in Shamoozal.
4. You’ll need a mic setup on your PC to do this, any mic will do.
5. Select Shamoozal in your Contact list and click the green call button, you’ll get the standard Skype ‘Leave a Message’ recording.
6. Fire away with your whore daddy.

The winner will be announced during the podcast, so you’ll have to listen the following week to find out who won.

We want to do more of this type of stuff in future podcasts, with more enticing prizes and more inflammatory topics. So hopefully we’ll get some good feedback this time around. Don’t hesitate, Friday is just a few days away!

Whore Daddy: Don’t Make Steve Mad!

Wow, I wasn’t on the Smorgas Board all day, I come home to check it out and see that someone totally sent Steve over the edge. Come on guys, support the cause, spread the love!

“You know, diggnation, this week in tech, 1up yours, all these podcasts have one thing in common… thousands and thousands of listeners.

Shamoozal Radio Podcast? Not so much, but we’re trying.

Those guys put out an episode and it’s gonna get dugg right to the front page of the Digg Podcast section. They also have corporate sponsors helping them out, but that’s neither here nor there.

Now maybe I shouldn’t care as much as I do, but usually once a day I check our digg page to see if any new people have thrown us a proverbial bone aka a “digg”.

Yesterday, I noticed we had 9 , and I thought to myself “Wow, one more and we might get put in the sidebar of ‘upcoming podcasts'”. That could lead to new people being exposed to the show, and exposed to the cartoon, and becoming part of the Shamoozal community that Phil has been trying to get off the ground.

Now, I’ve kind of let it go that we’re getting like 2-3 diggs on our blog posts (and usually 2 of them are me and phil), and I didn’t take it personally that we only had 9 diggs for the podcast when there’s like 15-20 people on here posting regularly. 9 Diggs is still 9 diggs, and hey for a small start-up podcast with little following, I’ll take what we can get with a smile and a “Thanks for listening”.

So imagine my dismay and surprise when I go to check out our diggs today and find that we now only have 8 for the podcast. Now, I know a thing or 2 about a thing or 2 when it comes to digg. I know that to remove a digg you have to deliberately log in and undigg the story/podcast/video.

So my question is, why?

Why did you do this to us?

Did we hurt your feelings when we said that Macs are garbage?

Do you have a hard-on for George Lucas’ fat-ass daughter and take offense to the idea of her deep-throating a Quizno’s sub?

Please help me to understand what it was that compelled you to log in on the digg site, go to your profile page and click ‘undigg’ next to our podcast. Because to be honest, I’m at a bit of a loss.

We’re trying to spread the word about Shamoozal kids, be it through the podcast or the nerdlog or whatever, the goal is getting Grey and Jacquo out there to the internet masses.”

After embarrassing Steve, and all joking aside, I do believe in our content. Word is starting to get out and there’s an increase in traffic. I think it’s only a matter of time before things catch on. Shamoozal is a word you won’t soon forget.

Shamoozal Radio #05

8-Bit Music Trivia Banner

It’s time for Shamoozal Radio #05, and we hope you’re ready for nearly an hour and a half of news, banter, trivia, and everything else we managed to cram into the show. We kick off with our Shamoozal News segment and learn a bit more about the Nerdlog straight from the horses mouth, and also read some “feed back” from Ninja, along with a few hints at the next Shamoozal cartoon and even an announcement for the return of another Shamoozal series.

Then the crew looks back at the last game console generation and picks out their favorites, along with some listener feedback. After that, tune those ears in for our 8-Bit Music Trivia segment hosted by yours truly. If you grew up in the era, you’ll be sure to enjoy it, as I promise nothing but pure NES nostalgia.

After that, it’s pretty much on as we go through some “Nerd News” and rant and rave about our own personal “Whore Daddies” for this edition of the podcast.
