The Idiot Box

I'm here once again with a podcast. For the benefit of those who don't get to hear it, or for those who want to know what they're getting in to, I shall give you a quick rundown of what to expect.

-A thank you for all your nice comments yesterday making me feel better about myself over lil miss kitty
-An update on my goal to lose weight. It turns out I lost 20 pounds without even realizing it. Which is awesome.
-Good news and bad news. The good news is that I'm going to see a counselor. The bad news is that I can't sing, and I'm never going to sing in a podcast. I recorded myself singing, and was going to put it into a podcast, ,but no. So so awful. Sorry guys.
-I talk about TV for like ten minutes. Mostly shit from my childhood. I also RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGEEEEEEEEEE at Michael Bay. .
-I got my kitty to purr into the microphone. I'm not sure it picked up but I hope it did.







As per typical usual it can be found here:http://ramblingperson.podbean.com/2012/04/19/the-idiot-box/

I really need to upgrade my Podbean account now. The only question is do I choose the system with a huge amount of space or do I pick the one with less space, but monthly space increases? I'll probably go with the second really. ALL THAT SPACE. Plus I won't need it immediately.

PS Sorry about all the sniffling. I haz teh poorlyz. This is not a very healthy household.

  1. I don't have the time to listen to it right now but I will later buddy, so thanks for providing it in a recap for us anyway. Losing 20 pounds without realising is a damn good achievement which you should be very proud of mate, congratulations. If you can lose 20 without trying, imagine what you could lose if you did try!

    1. I was trying my ass off :) It's just that I didn't remember what my starting weight was, so I didn't realize I'd lost that much. Plus I kept gaining a little bit here and there and so I put the scales away, and check every few weeks to a month instead now.

  2. You sounded like you had a cold, great weight loss and Michael is not that bad, he can't do any worse than the last movie!

    1. His movies aren't bad. As movies. As adaptations though they're just wrong. Morally wrong.

  3. Good job on the weight loss! I know you worked hard to achieve it - but the way you said that you had lost twenty lbs without realizing it was just great! That's huge... trying or not trying...

    I couldn't hear your kitty purring - but I heard her meow so that was cute.

    Thanks for this podcast and I really would like to hear you sing lol.... You have to use reverse psychology with me ;-) .... tell me "no" and I'll definitely want "yes"!

    1. I am trying my ass off ^^ It's just like I said, I knew how much I weighed, but I didn't consider how much I'd lost altogether. It was silly of me to focus on what I still weighed without reminding myself how well I'd done. I checked and the purr isn't that audible but yeah her meow was there and cute :3

      Sorry but it really isn't happening.

  4. What a way to start my day...being told you are going to bring me "bad news." I didn't even have any bad news to begin with yet, until I came here! Leapin' lizards! Anyway, I think most people are horrified when they hear themselves singing, your singing is probably not as bad as you think. The sharks that shoot lazers thing is from Austin Powers...you have to be my friend now. My next post is about the teenage mutant ninja turtles...I announced that before you posted this podcast, so I am not even being a copycat. I think the energy of the blogging universe is in synch now, all of us on the same wave length...it's freaky how that works.

    1. Hehe I mentioned them because Leah told me that he is going to do a Turtles movie and he's going to change a lot. Which is something he shouldn't do. The sharks with lasers was indeed Austin Powers. I know that kind of thing can happen with women on periods but I don't think it can happen to bloggers.

  5. BEFORE WE MOVE ON, regarding your podbean subscription or whatever the hell you're planning on doing: I'll soon be switching to another web host, which comes with a huge amount of space, and I wouldn't mind hosting your podcast mp3s there. I'm already planning on leasing away some of my disk space since I won't need all of it right away, so maybe that's an option? How much would your podbean thing cost?

    1. Welp we're discussing that on Twitter now. Possibly.

  6. Well it's a good thing she's getting out the last scraps, right?
    20 pounds is quite a lot, right? Really good going man, keep doing whatever you've been doing, and "a lot lot more to go" will be over in no-time!
    You're so awesome all the ladies NEED to meet you sooner.
    Dude at least post what you recorded? Even a fail is a bit of an accomplishment? Or email it to us three? :3
    See above comment for podbean stuff.
    TV series were and still are always awesome. Sonic the Hedgehog was awesome. Also what Mario cartoon? Is that actually a thing? Is that the one they use in YouTube poop a lot?
    Kids TV is rubbish these days. There's a few tiny gems, but over here there's waaay more terribly dubbed American series which is just stupid. ):
    Why is saying saying "black" bed. It's just a term, right? "Nigger" is a more offensive one.
    Soundtracks are always cool, OPs should be good or else the popularity of the series doesn't max out to its full potential.
    A guitar that shoots laserbeams? I still should build one that has a gun incorporated.
    I got the shark reference, do I get extra friendpoints now?
    But most of your favourite series are a bit before my time, also another country, so bluh.
    TNMT was pretty cool, though I don't think I've seen the original. Ruining a boy's turtles is quite dick a move. Death sentence.
    Meow. :3 Though I didn't hear the purr, sorry.

    1. It's not too bad she's digging the last scraps of her special food, but it means she's still scavenging, which isn't so good.
      20 pounds is indeed quite a bit. It's about a 12th I guess of what I want to lose. I'm not on track for how much I want to lose by when, but I'm still doing good.
      I'm not even going to email it to you guys, it was just horrible.
      I think it's the same one they use for a lot of YT Poop. I think they also use the other series I mentioned. There's a lot of rubbish, but there was also a lot of rubbish "back in the day". Dude you don't say that word. Some people class even "black" as an offense. It sucks but true.
      You just need a gunblade.
      Can you get anymore friendpoints? Aren't you maxed out?
      I KNOW RIGHT?! TOTAL DICK!
      The meow was very cute ^^

      Long comment is long.

    2. I win the long-post award, topping even you on my last post!

      But what are you supposed to call people with that skin colour then? Just address them as african-americans or what?

      Delete
    3. Nah I think I've left longer on other blogs. I think you have to say that and hope that they are American and of African descent. I don't think anyone bothered to think how ignorant the term "African-American" can be. Especially as there are a lot of white Africans.

  7. I doubt I'll ever record myself doing it, but I love singing, and I think I'm pretty decent at it. Even rapping (yeah, that's right, white boy got skills, you saw it). The point is to have fun, and that's all that matters. Who cares what you sound like? Record yourself singing, and I'll rap for you. How's that?

    Also, congratulations on your mystery 20 lbs! You want to take about 10 of mine?

    1. I'd like to hear you rap, you can write them quite well at least. But nah, it's not happening. I still like to do it, and I'll probably still sing, but I doubt I'll ever post it. I'm worried enough about adding 10 myself, I can't be taking 10 pounds off someone else.

  8. aye, i've been losing a pounds steadily as well, and all im doing is like instead of getting fries i'll grab a salad for lunch. feels good

    1. Well I haven't changed what I eat too much, but I am working out a lot.

  9. Rest assured, you aren't going to get hate mail from me because, like your counselor has deduced, you are totally awesome! :D

    And you lost twenty pounds...without trying?

    Must. Control. Girl. JEALOUSY!

    1. Well like I said before, and on Twitter, I worked my ass off to do it. I think I'm fighting genetics as well as just weight here. It sucks but the end result is going to be worth it. No need to be jealous. Thank you though ^_^

  10. Actually it's a good sign that you're councilor wants to see you sooner. It shows that they are good at what they do and will really be of help to you (and you're awesome, accept it!). Twenty pounds is rather a lot, so be proud of yourself and keep at it.

    1. I am quite proud. I just like the idea that she said four weeks, and then actually called me back and rearranged.

  11. Way to go on the weight loss. I usually like my good news last, but you put it in a way that i enjoyed it.

    You're right. Kids shows and cartoons were much better than they are today. I was a bit before the Sonic times(although I thoroughly enjoyed them as young adult), but the truth still holds in my case.

    Sharks with laser beams......gotta get the reference. Gotta be friends. Haha...maybe I'm just having a cerebral flatulence. It'll pass, soon.

    Your kitty sound great! I'd sing if I had such cuteness around me.

    1. She is quite cute and spends nearly all her time with me. She even sleeps on me sometimes. She sleeps on me and then disappears before I fall asleep, but she's always there when I wake up. I said they weren't that much better. Sometimes I'm really not sure they were. We had our gems sure, like Sonic and Kenan And Kel, but there was a lot of bad, like Sweet Valley High. A lot of teen shows today can be compared to Sweet Valley High.

  12. wow 20 pounds without even trying....I'm envious

  13. Congrats on losing the weight. 20lbs is a lot

  14. I use to hate rewatching shows, but then I started liking it again when I got older.
    I heard the cat meow when you picked her up!
    Yep you can talk for a long while! Thats why you're Mark the Rambling Person!
    Can't wait for next thursdays podcast!

    1. Well we'll see what happens next week. I don't like rewatching things that much. Though there are a few things I've watched a lot, it depends on how I feel. I do like to wait for some time to pass until the next time though because I like to forget some things.

    2. Don't worry when you get older your memory will go and you'll forget things really easy!

  16. Your podcast just reminded me that's it time to update my podbean account. You have no idea how much I hate spending money. It looks so good in my purse.
    Is Super Mario 3 the one with the tanuki suit? Remember when PETA complained about that?
    Oh, you're taking me back with that Kenan and Kel talk. I watch one of them every Saturday on Saturday Night Live. I don't know which one exactly, but he is hilarious.
    I dislike Michael Bay,too, but I have to admit, his movies make my brain feel like I am on drugs. Ooooh, the pretty lights.
    By the way, you are sounding more upbeat these days.

    1. I hate spending money too, especially when my OCD kicks in because I have a multiple of ten and I want to keep it that way.
      That was the one with the suit yeah. I don't remember PETA complaining about it though. Those bastards will complain about anything.
      I think it was Kel that went into SNL. Or it could have been Kenan. I think they both went into comedy but I'm not sure who went where.
      Like I said his movies aren't bad if you take them as just movies. The problems arise when you take them as adaptations. Transformers was a decent movie, but it wasn't a decent Transformers movie.
      I was ranting about the things I love and condemning a man to death, I was bound to sound happy.

    1. Thanks, good luck to you too. I've just gotten tired of being unable to change. I thought it was about time I made myself change.
      I hope it goes well for me.
      I STILL love Sonic the Hedgehog :P He was my idol growing up in some ways. For the longest time my favourite colour was blue cos he was xD
