    • Regular RT Account? What's the Point?

      3 weeks ago

      JakeHCoker

      Remember a few weeks ago (or was it just a week) when Burnie said on the RT Podcast that a lot of people are just waiting for them to pull out the rug beneath us like we're waiting on some kind of conspiracy or ruse? I never considered myself one of those people, until today. When I saw that RvB season 15 went up yesterday for First members I was still excited because it meant I would be able to watch today. But as I, and many other regular members, discovered that's not the way things are anymore. Regular members now have to wait a week to see content we previously only had to wait a day for, which by then will already be up on YouTube which is already a more convenient and reliable streaming site.


      Now don't get me wrong, I was a sponsor for years because I wanted to support RT as well as get access to some of that awesome exclusive content like special episodes of Immersion and RT Shorts. But once the community site started going to shit I decided not to renew because honestly the only content I had to come to the site for was RvB. The show that started it all. Now I can't see any reason in having a regular account on the site aside from keeping up with some people in the community. Now getting a First membership looks less like a way of supporting RT and more like the only option if you want to see stuff when it comes out. 


      I can't tell you the number of times I've seen an ad on Facebook or Twitter for a new episode of something only to realize it's for First members only. There are now First only series. There's an exclusive panel at RTX for First members. First members have early access to convention tickets. And if you check the comments of the latest RvB episode, you'll see a rift is starting to form between these two types of members. But that's not something I plan to stick around to see. I've really started to lose hope that RT has any plans to address any sort of problems or criticisms we put forward. Hell we're seeing a lot of long time members leave the site on a near daily basis. I'm not going to delete my account -- to much history on here, but I probably won't be logging on anymore. 


      This sucks.

    • Rick and Morty Season 3 Surprise Release

      So I had to make a blog for my marketing class, and decided to revive an old one from my film class. After Rick and Morty surprised us all yesterday by streaming the newest episode, I decided to do a post about it. I'd appreciate it if you'd check it out here and let me know what you think.

    • Life is a funny thing

      4 weeks ago

      JakeHCoker

      I always feel like I'm taking one step forward and two steps back. While I'm happy to be making content again, there are two setbacks in life that are really affecting me right now. I recently had my heart broken, and was just reminded of it recently in a rough way. And tonight, for the first time in my life, I was fired from a job. Turns out I'm a pretty shitty server. 


      I'm not really mad, but I am understandably frustrated. Luckily I've been saving up a bit lately, so money isn't a huge concern just yet. I've already started applying for other jobs and I know that everything is going to work out. 


      But damn I could really use a win right about now. At the very least some direction in life. I'm not going to quit recording the podcast though. On the contrary I'm probably going to record an episode tonight just to really get things off my chest. We'll see if it makes it online though. I'll try to keep looking on the bright side -- I hated working at that place. The money was good, but it was by far the most stressful job I've ever worked. Hopefully I'll have a better one in a week or so. 


      Wish me luck :/

    • So Sleepy

      I feel like I didn't get any sleep last night, and today is filled with classes and work later. I'm going to try and squeeze a nap in after this next class, but I'm not super optimistic about that happening. 


      On the upside I've been getting quite a bit of side work done today. I got my test episodes of the DeviantRED Podcast up on iTunes and made a new logo for it.

      I like it, but I'm still a little unsure. How do you guys feel about it?

    • The Podcast That Was 10 Minutes Too Long

      1 month ago

      JakeHCoker

      So the fourth test episode of the DeviantRED Podcast came out in the early wee hours of this morning and forced me to upgrade my SoundCloud account in order to keep all my episodes visible. With this small commitment I'm beginning to wonder if I should really start promoting this podcast through other means. My hope is that people who listen to the podcast might actually enjoy it and refer it to others, but in reality I know I've got to get people listening in the first place. I only planned on making 5 test episodes before the official start of the podcast, but there are a few things I'd like to change before that happens. 


      An official icon for the podcast. I've been using the image @OneBlueWolf made for me several years back, but I've been trying to find someone to make a new official icon specifically for the podcast. I've got a few ideas on what I'd like, but I've yet to find anyone who's willing to make it. I should mention that I'm more than willing to commission this project out for a reasonable price!


      Along the same vein, I'm also looking for an intro song to replace the sound of us opening beer bottles at the beginning of each episode. Like the icon, I've put out some feelers to several talented artists, but have yet to hear anything back. I'm only looking for a 10-30 second intro, like the RT Podcast or the WTF Podcast have. Nothing crazy, but it does have to be original. 


      So if you know anyone who's artistically inclined, send them my way! 

    • Mistakes were made?

      JakeHCoker

      So I just finished recording the 3rd test episode of the DeviantRED podcast because for some reason I'd rather be crazy at 3am than sleep. I'll be uploading it on my SoundCloud later today, but I thought I'd go over a couple of the talking points here and on my blog before hand. 


      - Hit 5,000 views on YouTube

      - Started Twitch Streaming

      - Why I won't be streaming Halo, and the origin of my dog Mako

      - Finishing off the last Abita beer and why it sucks living in a dry county

      - O' Reilly's Auto Parts website has an amazing easter egg

      - Chuck Barry's death

      - Funny but absolutely horrible internet stories including the one mentioned by @extremeblarg in my last journal. 


      I'm sure that last bit is going to come back to bite me someday... Probably someday soon.

    • What're your favorite funny internet stories?

       For me it's the one with the guy who found out he was into prostate stimulation that Burnie read on the podcast a while back. What internet stories crack you up every time?

    • Productive few days off

      1 month ago

      JakeHCoker

      If you caught my last journal, you know that I recently took another shot at podcasting with the DeviantRED Podcast. First test episode came out last night and I'm thinking I might record another later tonight if my co-host is feeling up to it. 


      Today I decided to venture into somewhat new waters and did my first ever Twitch stream. Several in fact, but the only one I'm leaving up is my video in Galaga


      Both experiences are turning out to be a blast, but I think I'll be devoting more time to the podcast since it's what has really been on my mind lately. We're still working out the formula for it, but I've had a lot of fun ideas and hopeful interviews planned ahead. Should be getting in my mic stand and pop filter tomorrow so I can put down my shirt over a clothes hanger over the mic setup and be a little more professional. But for now I'm going to try to squeeze in another test episode and maybe a beer or two.


      Peace ^_^
