Audio Foolishness

As you may have noticed, I like talking to myself about TV shows. I like using my blog as an outlet for that sort of thing, because my friends, social networks, and IRC aren’t all interested in all the same things I am. (I don’t think there’s anyone on the planet who shares all the same interests as me.) Also, I hate spoilers, and I don’t want to risk spoiling things for other people without the ability to warn first. And I rarely watch anything within 24 hours of its airing, so it’s odd to try striking up conversations about things that aired days, weeks, or even months ago.

But anyway. My TV rambles have always been more talking than writing, so I’ve been wanting to try doing it in audio form for a while. But I couldn’t really use my microphone until recently. And on a whim I decided to try it out in late February, rather than waiting until summer. So rather than typing up unordered lists for each episode, I recorded myself saying sentences. It’s still just as disjointed, but with brief silence instead of bullet points for separation. And I ended up doing stuff for January, February, and March episodes, so I’m not gonna bother listing every show before the cut. Also, there are no text spoilers, but there are tons of them in the audio files.

Note that this is merely an experiment in audio, so I don’t guarantee amazing quality. I did my best to keep it from being a technical nightmare, and I think I at least achieved that. I encoded them as FLAC because they did not compress to MP3 well, and I don’t expect people to load a bunch of 30 second clips of me onto their iPods or whatever. On that note, it’s unlikely I’ll try to turn this into a podcast or anything, because the content is too varied, and I don’t have that much to say about any individual show. (And a group discussion wouldn’t work, because the stuff I said in the first paragraph.)

Also, there are inconsistencies between the files, namely in the volume and my tone of voice. I guess I was more alert and energetic in some recording sessions, while more quiet and monotonous in others. I also can’t seem to put the microphone in the same place every time. Oh, and I have been very dehydrated lately, so I had lots of gasping noises to edit out, lest people think I’m a mouth-breather or something. I probably went through a few gallons of water while recording all this stuff.

Anyway, here are all the files. Yes, that’s really my voice. I wish I sounded as deep as I do in my own head, because I want to be Masako Nozawa when I grow up. Also, I sound very nasal because I can only breathe through one nostril.

(EDIT: Forgot to add this sooner, but I was clearly falling asleep while recording Young Justice 1-23, and I know I misspoke the season number for a couple of Chuck episodes, too.)
