Mike's Skype Thing
« 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.
See God, Kai

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.

I second Kormodd's suggestion.

An internet Mike Show would be tremendous.

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.

I really don't appreciate your sarcastic, anti-comedy tone, Bro!

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.
See God, Kai

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).

I don't have a webcam. Is it still possible for me to participate in this?

I don't have a web cam. A web cam is not necessary and in some respects would only be a distraction.

You guys are livin' in the 80s!

Or at least the mid 2000s.

Tearing into us one by one does sound appealing. I'm in!

Goddammit, I'm at work at that time. Any chance we can see it at other times? Mike fans need their fix. Drinking Coors Light alone is no fun...

I am going to try and record it and post over at the Fredericks Mind Thing site.

I used this app for my short-lived podcast; it automatically records everything you do on Skype: http://download.cnet.com/CallNote-Premium/3000-2349_4-76014515.html

This looks great. Thank you.

Hopefully it will work out better this did: http://fredericksnprcast.podbean.com/2014/01/19/communication-breakdown/
