Title: Mike's Skype Thing
Post by: B_Buster on January 15, 2014, 01:39:25 AM
Tonight was the trial run of Mike's Skype Thing. Join me and fellow FOTs next week on Skype, Tues. 9 pm-12 am EST as we commiserate with one another until the return of The Best Show. Connect with me on Skype (Michael Lisk from Bayonne, NJ--there's a photo of me) and then join us next Tues. night.

I'm not trying to impose my will (okay, I am trying to impose my will), but is there any possibility of you doing a Mike Show on the Internet until the return of The Best Show? I (and probably many other people) think that would be incredible.

How does it work? How many people can connect at once? Are they all talking over one another?

I'll probably give it a chance at some point, regardless, but I'm interested to know the details.

Connect with me on Skype and then we'll have a group chat. I'm sure it will be a little chaotic at first as we lurch towards making it lively, but I envision it as a virtual Massa's Tavern where people say stupid shit and talk over each other, but occasionally stumble upon something brilliant.

Also, as a means of imposing order, I will act as the moderator/teacher/group therapy leader/facilitator/bartender who will occasionally call on group members at random. Please be prepared to contribute (i.e. not too drunk).

A little tiring at points, but fun. The inclusion of Sarah and Petey were highlights. The person who said "Petey's been on my mind a lot lately" was a bit troubling.

Tom will probably have his show by then, but the anniversary of the Jonestown Massacre (November 18th) does fall on a Tuesday this year. Something to keep in mind.

Would you like to co-host next week, Kormodd? It's a support group, so everyone is welcome to speak. This way it might not be too "tiring" for you.
Title: Re: Mike's Skype Thing
Post by: Kormodd on January 29, 2014, 11:43:05 PM
I would not. I'm a horrible speaker. I briefly did a podcast with Sarah and realized that doing such a thing was not for me. I'll make small contributions next week as I did this week.

It wasn't TOO tiring. I simply said it was A LITTLE tiring at points. Jeezum crow. I like the show and think it will get better as you guys get used to the format.

Question, what if one were never a caller to the show, but a regular listener, feeling a real gap in her Tuesday night. Can this unknown person join the skype support group? Is this too big a step for a shy person?
Title: Re: Mike's Skype Thing
Post by: Kormodd on January 30, 2014, 11:58:38 PM
Yes, that unknown person can join Mike's Skype Thing. That person can also choose not to speak if she doesn't want to, and there's a text chat if she wants to communicate without speaking.

If anyone's interested in watching Blake's 7, the show that Sarah and I were talking about last night, the entirety of it is on YouTube. Be warned, though: you'll have to put up with terrible sets, costumes, and special effects. I posted a video of Avon's greatest insults (which didn't embed for some reason) in the YouTube thread, but I guess I'll repost it here.

Post by: Kormodd on February 06, 2014, 11:43:29 AM
Thoughts on the chat:

- Mike should make sure he mentions the Skype handle of the person who's hosting the chat when he tweets about it.

- Mike vs. Sarah and the torture porn discussion were highlights. I especially liked Mike's story about a person coming up to him at an FOT meet-up and telling him about a disturbing murder. "I just attract those types of people for some reason."

- I wish this thing were on something more stable than Skype.

Title: Re: Mike's Skype Thing
Post by: Kormodd on February 19, 2014, 01:27:17 PM
Thoughts:

1) Mike should put out a tweet before the Skype Thing telling people to add fredericksmindthing as a contact, soFrederickse can invite people in the chat. If Fredericks's getting inundated with contact requests while hosting the chat makes things cumbersome, I can invite people into the chat if they can't get in. Just send a contact request to "Kormodd." What a pain in the ass, but I guess that's Skype.

2) Turning on "dynamic view" makes it much easier to see who's talking in the voice chat.

3) Tom's talking in the text chat, with Fredericks and Mike responding to his comments in the voice chat, was a lot of fun.
Title: Re: Mike's Skype Thing
Post by: fonpr on February 19, 2014, 05:58:23 PM
I could only add people already in my contacts.

I'm a smoker, and I don't find the way Rustin Cohle smokes to be particularly strange. Holding the cigarette between your thumb and index finger is unorthodox, but it's not verboten among real smokers. I mainly prefer to hold a cigarette between my index finger and middle finger, but I've held one between my thumb and index finger before, and I've seen other people do it too.

And yeah, I'm trying to kick the habit by using e-cigarettes.

And I'm reading The King in Yellow now. In it, "The King in Yellow" is a play that drives the people who read it crazy and makes them devotees of the King in Yellow, who seems to be some sort of unpleasant divinity who lives on another planet; his followers want to overthrow the U.S. government and appoint an emperor to represent the Yellow King on Earth. So far, human sacrifice isn't demanded, but murder is deemed necessary to eliminate unsuitable pretenders to the emperor-ship (a complicated genealogy is created by one of the characters to determine who this person is). Mike would no doubt find the book to be pure junk, but I'm enjoying it.

I've seen it. I've never really put much thought into how characters in movies smoke cigarettes (I had to rewatch one of the scenes in True Detective to see what Mike was talking about). I guess I need to start paying more attention to what I watch.

One of my favorite all-time hang-ups was a Halloween when Frank asked Tom if he gave out big candy bars because he was rich .  Tom stumbled a bit, like a great hitter getting frozen by a change-up. Then he recovered and GOMP'ed Frank. Great memory.

Was that a compliment, Mike?

Regardless: lastest Skype chat is up.  Here's a description: A disgruntled Tom Scharpling, still sworn to silence, types like a madman to our (mostly) merry band of Skypeteers. Various members of the chat read his texts. However, due to the weight of the responsibility, the burden gets passed around, frequently.

Tom had a thing with Satellite radio back in the day, there is a great story about him and Little Steven in the archives somewhere. Here is a blog post I found from back in the day.


THE FATE OF THE SHOW
SEPTEMBER 4, 2005

Hey everyone.

I wanted to write to let you know a few things about where the future of the radio show is at and about my move to Sirius satellite radio.

I've given it some thought, and I think that I'm going to try and give it another shot as far as smoothing things over with Little Steven. Being on satellite radio has been a goal of mine for years now, and to be so close yet so far away is something that has been taunting and tantalizing me all weekend long. I need to go for it. Perhaps compromise is the best way to approach this situation - after all, most of the great art and achievements throughout history have been arrived upon when a bunch of people put their heads together and came up with a collective decision. Perhaps I can try to do the Toilet Talk the way that Little Steven sees fit.

I'm going to swing by his mansion in a little bit to try and smooth things over. I'm thinking about bringing a gift by - something to 'bury the hatchet' as they say. Does anyone have any suggestions? A cake? A money clip? A gift certificate? Please email me with advice.

Another weird wrinkle is that it looks like Sirius radio owns pretty much every existing element of The Best Show On WFMU, including all performances and callers. So if you have been a regular caller, it looks like until this thing blows over and my lawyers get into it, your audio likenesses are owned by Sirius. I'm not trying to say that you can't use your voice to order food at a drive thru. I'm just saying that you might want to talk to a lawyer before calling into Sean Hannity for the forseeable future.

I will attempt to straighten this out as soon as I can. Please be patient.

Sad but determined -

TCM had one of its runs of foreign films the other night, so I DVRed a Bunuel (Diary of a Chambermaid), two Truffaut (The 400 Blows, Jules and Jim), and an Antonioni (La Notte).

I've seen Blow Up (eh), but I don't know that I've seen any Bunuel or Truffaut. I really like Kurosawa (I've seen everything but a couple of his earliest films), Bergman and Fellini, so I try out the other great non-American auteurs when I get the chance. I see on the schedule that I missed a couple of Louis Malle's movies, so I'll catch something by him next time around.

I don't own an iPhone. I did find this tidbit regarding an individual who was discussed in the latest released episode of Mike's Skype Thing.

I talked to John Popper of Blues Traveler a couple days ago about the saga that left him unconscious and in his skivvies in a Mandalay Bay hotel room on the night of March 20.

Above mentioned episode right here: http://fredericksnprcast.podbean.com/e/stop-talking-youre-boring/ (http://fredericksnprcast.podbean.com/e/stop-talking-youre-boring/)

I'd also like to mention that we agreed to shift the time of the show to 8-10 P.M. EST on Tuesday nights. Until the Best Show returns. Hopefully not much longer.

Mike was talking about running, and it got me thinking, so I went for a run today. The last time was in 1999 or 2000. It was fun!  I didn't crap my pants!

The new New Pornographer's album is a great running LP (the first 20 minutes at least, that's as far as I went).

Yes. Tom's acknowledgement was touching. However, Mike's silence regarding his own show is rather disturbing.  While I am fully aware of his disgust with the whole MadLibs debacle, it seems rather extreme to act as if the entire year long run never happened.

Hey Fredericks, Care to do a Mind Thing tonight since there's no episode this week? Mike suggested on Twitter that we do it!
