More Questions And Some Answers

I kinda didn't realise how late into the week it was. Well I have another podcast for you as always. This is another two parter, with a bit before and then an entirely different subject. First of all I talk about a problem I've had with blogging, and then I answer just a few more questions people asked. If I get asked any more then for now I'll probably just answer in the comments.




As per usual http://ramblingperson.podbean.com/ is where you can find it if it's not working here.

If you can't listen to the podcast for whatever reason, and are interested, the problem is that I don't feel so good about making impersonal posts now I've started to be more personal. Still, it's my blog, and I can do what I want. Ha.

  1. Of course we're listening, I've always liked the name Ethan myself, good rambling Mark!

    1. Ethan is pretty cool, and I do like it, but for me Caleb is one of those names that sounds like a fantasy name, but still works in the real world. I can't really call a kid Aragorn (well I could but for his sake I probably wouldn't) but Caleb has that feel to it. Meh.

    2. Aragorn would be an epic name!x

  2. Well, I think the podcast is important...time differences be DAMNED! You and Bersercules were born to podcast together. Go forth and MAKE IT HAPPEN! I don't know Madeline's schedule, but poor Nellie Vaughn always seems to have insomnia, so I don't think a time difference is much of an excuse there. Remember what the great poet Remi once wrote, “The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you. Don't go back to sleep.” Actually, I don't really believe that. I believe most people need to sleep more. Imagine if Hitler just slept all day, the world would have been saved a lot of misery. But Hitler didn't have a podcast program. But be that as it may, I need more podcasts. I need entertainment while I am downing a 2 liter of Diet Mountain Dew and Butterfinger bar for breakfast, or having my Taco Bell meal for dinner. (Mmmmmmmn, tacos.) Also, let us know when you need more questions for podcasts. I suddenly have lots of questions. Do you have answers?

    1. If Hitler had a podcast of his own then it could probably have done the world some good for him to have an outlet besides politics. It would be cool to do something with Bersercules though. He seems to have kinda a busy schedule. It'd be nice to have a permanent partner too. I always have answers, but I don't think I'll be doing Q&A for a while. I should do something different.

      Delete
    2. Yes we should do podcasts together! I just got a mic that I can talk in with out it sounding all fizzy (but can't use it for my video reviews cause I have to hold the mic an inch from my face!).

      Delete
    3. Well it's a lot easier than that review was. All we have to do is talk on Skype and I can record that and turn it into a podcast.

      Delete
  3. We all need to make impersonal posts from time to time. It makes the personal ones that much more meaningful.

    Also, I wouldn't want a sidekick either, if I was a superhero. Besides, much like Robin, aren't they usually incompetent and just end up making more trouble than they're worth?

    1. They seem to get in the way when you're trying to pick up hot superhero chicks. I'm going to try and get more comfortable with making every kind of post, so I can live for years to come.

      Delete
  4. Great post mate, I never really mind listening to at least some of your podcasts when I have the time. I'm with you on the sidekick thing, Superhero's getting sidekicks, especially chick sidekicks kills it for me. Do something with Bersecules again too if you can, maybe the rest of that Batman review!

    1. I actually don't know a superhero with a chick sidekick besides the times when Wolverine was paired up with one of the girls to make him look more human. It would be cool to do something with him again but it's up to him, and the video review was more difficult than we envisioned.

  5. Haha dude, that opening. Great!

    That's right. It's your blog, you're the man with power here!
    As for the ideas, just try them, see how they work out, and post it. Maybe people'll like it!
    YES I'LL TRY MY BEST TO DO IT it'll happen sooner or later. Also yeah sorry for being so young. ):

    Saving best for last, eh?
    Sidekicks can be cool but they shouldn't be, like, sidekicks you know. More like partners in crime, I guess? Bitchboy? Hahahaha!
    If you change your name you can't do any shitty puns with it. (ie "how about I Mark my territory?")
    The power of pi is, like, 3.1415
    Yeah it's still really cool you one-take your podcasts.
    An elf? Cool, but those are starting to get pretty cliche.
    "Goddamn badass battle-mage." Cracking up here man, haha!
    Ah yeah you mentioned the ideal you before. Dark and broody sort of fits you though. And yeah a fabulous rainbow colourful background would suit you perfectly ;D
    Not having elves is nothing to be ashamed of man. Like I said, they're getting old anyway.

    NEW QUESTION for next podcast (if that ever happens (I hope so)): If you were a MLP character, what would you look like, what species would you be (unicorn, pegasus, regular), and WHAT WOULD YOUR CUTY MARK BE?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hey I'd be the broody as fuck anti-hero who has a heart of gold and an unbreakable moral code, like Batman. Like I said as well, GET LEVY INVOLVED.

      As for the pwnies, dude, just, dude, I'm not going to discuss that in public on a podcast. However I will answer it here in the comments. (by the way there IS an online flash game where you create your own pwny and earn your cutie mark. I played it but never finished it) I would be a black unicorn with a purple mane and my cutie mark would be a quill on a piece of parchment showing my talent for writing. As for a name, Jebus only knows. Hell that could be my name Jebus Only Knows.

  6. u know what i think would be even more funny, doing a podcast while drunk.

    1. I do still want to get drunk and make a podcast with Jessie.

  7. Hellz yeah. It's your blog, you party how you want to. ^.^

    My sidekick, Coffee Man, would be superfluous because his only function would be to make coffee for me so I could fight crime; I can make my own coffee. :P

    (And it wasn't until just a few years ago that I learned how to appreciate the awesomeness of pie. I hated it as a kid.)

  8. Great ramble-cast!
    I think my hay fever has stopped this year :O Clever that your idea is about your lack of ideas! In regards to your lack of confidence, it takes some guts to broadcast the things you do in your blogs!

    1. Yeah I know I have confidence in some things, it's a matter of having confidence in more things :)

  9. I really enjoy listening to your pod-casts, but I don't think that I would join in with anyone else blogging. I like to do my own thing, so loner I am!
    If you could be a person from mythology, who and why would you be that person?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hey we can just be The Lone Rangers. That is an interesting question, and I probably would have loved to talk about it. If I had to choose just one, it would be Thor. My favourite of the Norse Gods, who are also my favourite section of mythology. I mentioned on your blog I was writing a fantasy novel, and I am borrowing some things from Norse mythology. Plus the guy has a huge hammer, what's not to love?

      Delete
  10. I'm listening! I'm sure many are! Your podcasts are great!

    Lack of ideas as an idea? Awesome!

    Lately your post have been more personal? I'm sure they always have been and you just never realized it! Everyone reveals a lot about themself when they write something!

    I have nothing to say right now so I'm gonna talk about carrots, carrots are great, Bugs Bunny eats them! Yeah cartoons.

    Last time for questions in the pod cast? FUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

    Why does the time difference matter? Your up all nite!

    The Comic adventures of Mark the Rambling Person and his sidekick Bitch Boy!

    How'd you know I'd look into womans shower rooms?

    No you said you liked to be asked THE specific question of "why" so I asked you "Why"!

    God Bersercules asks a lot of questions!!

    Your dream guy is a harem? a whole bunch of guys? like an orgy? What about a shape shifter? Like Mystique! She can be anyone!

    I could change my fight club to a punching bag club!

    No elves in your own book? Too bad you couldn't write any in! Stupid writing books in stone!

    Great podcast as always! I hope you keep it up!

    1. Last time for now. I'm not up all night, I get to bed at like 1AM now, and I wake up earlier too. It sucks really. I don't think I explicitly said what I think you would do, so you really just confirmed my suspicions here. I remember it as me saying I liked to be asked specific questions. I do remember saying I like to be asked why though. I like to be asked why because it makes me think about something. Being asked why helps me get an understanding, and pass that understanding on to someone else as well. Mystique could be anyone, but only one person at a time. Plus a naked blue chick? Come on, it's going to be tough to get her to be someone else. You're a bad influence on me. I can probably still write some in, it's just that I'm borrowing from a mythology I'm not sure has elves, and I've made my own race that are like elves as it is. I don't think I could insert them now.

      Delete
    2. Good to hear your sleep scedual is better. You were only suspicious that I'd look at girls in the shower? I've mentioned watching girls shower as a joke in two of my reviews (including our Batman one!) Yep Mystique can only be one person at a time, so no orgies! You don't think Mystique would change shape for her lovers? You think she likes blue to much? What about turning to Smurfette? I'm a bad influence on everyone who is normal. Don't write in elves if you have a race like them already, origanality is better then copying! I salute you for that!

      Delete
    3. I think that she would change if her lover wanted her to, but she's pretty hot as she is. Plus who can say they slept with a blue chick? Besides the Smurfs.

  12. I will tell you that you don't need a partner. That was never my intention. I asked Madeline if she would mind doing an occasional podcast with me because I wanted to do a few podcasts about psychology, and she has the credentials. She agreed. Somehow, she has ended up in every one of my podcasts. Finding out how to record and edit a podcast was a lot of work and stress, which I did completely on my own. One of you will work harder than the other, and you could end up with a great deal of resentment. I am only mildly happy with the end result. My podcasts are not what I had in mind. My vision has been completely pissed on. It has become two very annoying girls talking about immature subjects. That would be fine if we were 15.

    1. Well that's how it worked with the video review with Bersercules. He put in a lot more effort than I did, and I hope he doesn't feel that way about me. As for the editing and such, it's one reason I do everything in one take. I got a lesson in the agony that is editing today, I'm in no hurry to do it again. BUT! If you want to do a serious podcast with someone, then drop me a line sometime. I would be happy to talk psychology with you, or anything really. I'm very interested in psychology and what drives people to do things, it's probably something I could talk about for a while. Plus we agreed it would be awesome if we did something together. So yeah, consider it. If you even read this. READ THIS.

    2. Don't worry I don't feel resentment about it Mark. It works out for the best with us two cause I'm a control freak and you wanting to do more work would bother me more then help me!

      Delete
    3. Yes I suggested some jokes that you rejected. I didn't mind though either. It did work out the best for us.

      Delete
    4. You also suggested jokes that I used, but yes some of your joke ideas I couldn't make work in my mind.

      Delete
  13. Absolutely! That's awesome. I have been close with Madeline for ages, and she is currently under a lot of stress, so we stick with very lighthearted topics. That's great, but I would like to tackle more serious issues. Perhaps within the next two weeks we can record? I would do it sooner, but...I am going to Disneyland!!

    1. Well I have a lot of stress but don't worry about it, I have fun talking about serious things. I'm free next week myself at almost any time. This could be pretty damn awesome. Not as awesome as going to Disneyland though, enjoy yourself!

    1. I burst out laughing when asked that in another podcast. The answer is still pretty much the same.

  15. Oh gosh. Don't worry. I am listening :)

    me too. I enjoy being weird. haha. But I don't think I'm weird? I just enjoyed thinking I am what I am not. Haha.

    I heard a car? was that a car? haha.

    No sidekick? why? I wanted to have someone with me all the time, not the kind that would die for me. but just someone to accompany me.

    haha! I wonder what's a specific question?

    My dream name would be: Samantha, Alexandra, Elizabeth or Isabella. hehe..

    My aunt's name is Lydia :)

    You don't sound bad :)

    ciao! ^_^

    1. I'm not sure if there was a car, it might be though, I recorded it in my front room and I do live next to a main road. It's possible. I wouldn't want a sidekick because I wouldn't want someone getting in the way, or having to protect them too. Alexandra is also a beautiful name :) So is Isabella.

    3. I hope you hated him a good way, as a bad guy should be hated. I thought he was an amazing character, being so unexpectedly ruthless.

  18. Fire and ice arrows? Sounds familiar...
