Jeff, Carrie, Mike and Gonch review this week's news in the amusement industry.
Link: CoasterBuzz Podcast
Thanks for making my morning with some fun informative debauchery!
The show notes definitely don't capture how much fun we were having on this one.
Go figure -- I get married and STOP going to parks.
It's just fun having someone to go with who enjoys the parks at the same pace and in the same ways I do, Greg. :)
I think the sound issues are getting cumbersome with the podcast. I wasn't even on the call for much of the beginning comments about Coasting for Kids. I was dropped and then came back just as Jeff was finishing his comments. That can make for some awkward transitions. :)
I should probably watch the chat window more closely, but when the laptop turns off its screen, I totally forget. It's strange that you didn't hear anything.
The call dropped me a for a moment or two right then as well, but it reconnected quickly and nary a beat was missed.
After that it didn't drop at all.
Aside from the brief drop, I have been having sound issues for the past few shows. I am losing chunks of what's being said. I think the issue may be in my internet connection, but it's very challenging.
As long as it isn't black-outs from drinking. :-)
Maybe you need to do an old fashioned tape sync... :)

(who, much to his surprise, actually *did* a tape-sync last week...)
Edit: Damn you auto correct. This keeps up I'm gonna have to stop using the iPad to post!Last edited by RideMan, Wednesday, August 3, 2011 8:55 PM
What is this, 1993? Should we A/B roll edit our video too? :)
What's this? You have video on your podcast? And here I've been missing out all this time...
Well, the term 'tape sync' is a bit of an anachronism. But when I was trying to book studio time last week, I actually offered to record on my computer "even though tape syncs are so 1993". Then we went into the studio, where we had ISDN available...and did a tape sync. :)
Ensign, there have been podcasts with video. But mostly Jeff is ribbing me because he knows that (like him) I learned to edit video using video cassettes and a deck controller. Today that's such a lost art that you can't even find the equipment for it anymore!

Video killed the radio star.
Computers killed tape. Thank God.
When I get a chance I'll have to rifle through the archives and look for podcasts with video. That ought to be a hoot.
There's only one that I remember. Very early on (sitting at Lighthouse Point?) at the end of Cedar Point's season.
A portion of one of our earliest shows, at Holiday World, with Will, was also recorded with video.
