BTE Netcast – Episode 2 – Mediocre Movies

Short episode due to technical difficulties. With Foozar waiting in line to see the Dark Knight, we fall back on movie and E3 talk. We review Hellboy II and Hancock, both mediocre movies with too much hype behind them. Spanky, however, disagrees.

IMO, one of the BYTVE.

Although nobody will click this link or see it all the way through, I think it’s worth mentioning. At least I know my little sister will care.

BTE Netcast – Episode 1 – Oh hai!

Long time coming, this is the first episode of our netcast. We’ve recorded quite a few of these so stay tuned because I’ll be posting all the shows in the next few days or weeks (bandwidth limitations).

In this show we talk about Wanted and introduce the revolutionary lolcat rating system. Another topic you’ll hear not only in this episode but in many to come is Halo, the game that brought us together.

The Hip-Hop Files

Having done graffiti myself (and getting back into it lately), I found this video very interesting. A big source of inspiration when I went tagging was listening to Cypress Hill, House of Pain, and that kind of music. Also, I found break dancing to be fascinating and when I got a chance to do so I helped a friend of mine DJ at parties. He hated it when I scratched his records.

Mexico was late to the graffiti and hip-hop party but the influences are very much the same.

This is an old one (think 2006), but still cool. If this comparison picture had been created today, the Crysis rocks would look more realistic than the original picture. Of course, they would only run at 3 frames per second, but that’s besides the point.

If friendster and facebook are to be believed, it’s a special day today. Spanky finally turned 13 years old… at least mentally. Let’s wish him well even though he’s kinda weird. Party at your place Spanky? After Denny’s of course.

Seriously, do et. Cold Storage, the remake of a favorite of ours “Chill Out” was released today and it’s free so go get it and while you are at it, download the free gamerpics and theme. The latter two will only be available today, July 7th. I’ll be playing tonight if anyone’s interested. Gamertag: qbix.

Netcasts (podcasts) for your consideration

You may have noticed a few links on the sidebar of this site to Gamers With Jobs and Games for Windows Radio. Those two sites host what I would consider some of the best gaming-related netcasts I’ve listened to. If you are new to netcasts/podcasts I will be writing an overview/tutorial on what they are and how to make the most of them in a future post, but for now think of them as syndicated radio shows in MP3 format without all the rules imposed by the FCC to commercial or public radio broadcasters. And by the way, free of charge, and for the most part, commercial-free.

You can subscribe to netcasts through iTunes if you have an iPod, or through the Zune software if you own a Zune. Subscribing to a netcast means your client (iTunes or Zune software) will download the latest episode automatically the moment it becomes available. I should also note that you do not need an iPod, a Zune or any other MP3 player to listen to netcasts. If you want, you can listen to them on your computer at any time since they are regular MP3 files. In fact, you can subscribe to netcasts through Google Reader which is a nice way to decentralize the content, but as I said I’ll go in depth in a future post.

For now, here’s a list of netcasts worth listening to and a sample episode (cherry picked by me) of each. I hope you enjoy them.
