Jeff and Pat review this week's news in the amusement industry.
Link: CoasterBuzz Podcast
So.. Lots of IT stuff to the Starlight Experience... Suddenly I have an idea for a VIP tour topic ;) Guaranteed one person to sign up.
Re: Light Shows.. I hear you guys.. When I was in college I produced Laser Light Shows for one of the largest Laser companies in the US. Even did shows at Darien Lake back then. Was the best job ever as it was total artistry involved. (didnt use DMX controls, but analogue pots and pangolin animation software on Amiga 2000s).
Best part was the fact we were using YAGs and Argon Lasers for outdoor shows, which while aligning made many-a-holes in my shirts, buildings across the way, etc.. God I miss that job, but pay wasnt the best and was always on the road.. Thanks for helping me reminisce. ::sigh::
I think lasers are cool, but they freak me out because of their potential to fry your rods and cones.
We had an unusually good time doing this show. We wandered a bit off topic, which drives some people crazy I'm sure, but we can't be single minded week after week. We're diverse like that.
Best ending in some time, too.
And that's what I like about the podcast...wondering just where the conversations will lead.
Hey, guys, don't worry about how old we're getting...I'm actually pushing 50, and remember my first digital watch (a TI from Radio Shack. Man, those red numbers were SO AWESOME! :) )
And no closing music? I almost missed the ending!
Yeah, I goofed up on the music. If you really miss it, you can redownload it, as I fixed it and put up the replacement last night. (Hint for those subscribing via iTunes: Delete it, then close CoasterBuzz Podcast list by "turning" the little arrow. Click the arrow while holding down alt/option, and it will offer you the "get" button" to download it again.)
Oooh. So the 'first edition' of podcast #145 is a collector's item. :)
I'd call it a mistake, but whatever floats your boat!
It's like when a baseball card gets misprinted and distributed before the mistake is caught and corrected. Those become quite collectible.
I'm sure Podcast #145 will one day become as valuable as a T206 Honus Wagner card. :)
I wasn't sure if that was a mistake or not. In some ways it made the ending even funnier as it came out of nowhere... like a bonus track on the podcast.
Yeah, at first I thought, "Hmm...I guess they didn't have any good outtakes" and just as I was about to select a new podcast to listen to the ending came on...
And these kinds of antics are exactly the reason it would be awesome to get the entire crew together for Fall Affair. Me, Mike, Gonch, Rob, Greg, then perhaps throw some other regulars here in there, start a camp fire, let the good times roll.
Yeah, I need to work the podcast back into my schedule. I'd have ESPECIALLY loved to rant a bit after your comment about a minivan full of teenagers with a handicap sticker at the mall (BIG pet peeve of mine these days since my girlfriend DOES need one; hell, if we're out together but she's staying in the car we refuse to use the hangtag anyway, since I'm perfectly able to walk wherever...)
