Marble Operator at GMX V4

The fourth annual Geek Media Expo concluded earlier today. Marble Operator was in attendance, as KissofJudas and I were there.

There were lots of interesting guests at the expo, ranging from voice actors Billy West and Rob Paulson, to Nostalgia Critic/That Guy With the Glasses Doug Walker, and even British adult film actress Tanya Tate (which seems very odd, but she was labeled as “superhero cosplayer”, so, whatever).

However, KissofJudas and I were there for one specific reason, and that was Marble Hornets. Troy Wagner, Joseph Delage III, and Tim Sutton were there, along with a special guest, Brian Haight. As Troy joked during the opening ceremonies, they stuffed him in the trunk of their car and drove north to Franklin, TN for GMX.

Throughout the convention, the guys had a booth near the dealers’ room (for much of the panel they were at the end of the hallway outside the room, later on they moved inside the actual room). They sold DVDs and autographed stuff, and generally chatted with anyone who visited them. It was that Friday evening that KissofJudas and I got in line, had them autograph our DVDs. (Note: I have the original, typo version of the season one DVD, which Troy and Joseph enjoyed seeing (“Hey, you’re one of the originals!”)

It was great meeting them for the first time. I mentioned the podcast, and they thought it was cool.

Anyway, the Marble Hornets guys hosted two panels at the expo. The first was a Q&A session, which I recorded on my 3DS. (I sat in the front row, holding up my 3DS to record, and Joseph kept staring at me) I’ll see about uploading this footage to YouTube soon.

The second panel was a live commentary on season two, which started at around 1am central Saturday night. In the half-hour leading up to it, Tim tweeted that it should be a pyjama party and people should show up in their pyjamas, and that he definitely would. Sure enough, he did.

That’s enough for now. I’ll set about filing a report on the report for Marble Operator podcast, so that’ll be up on the feed soon.

I had a great time at GMX and had fun meeting the Marble Hornets guys.

UPDATE: This is weeks old, but I have the MH Q&A panel posted on my YouTube channel.

Radio Free Caemlyn’s Creepypasta Series

So, it’s October, it’s autumn, it’s harvest season, but in particular, Halloween is at the end of the month. All sorts of creepy shenanigans ensue.

Since earlier this year, I’ve been recording creepypastas for the podcast. What is a creepypasta? Well, the name comes from the phrase “copypasta”, which itself is a bastardization of “copy and paste”; the phrase refers to stories that are not original content, but rather copied and pasted from another source. Creepypastas are simply scary stories that are generally copied and pasted in new threads. Like so many Internet memes, creepypasta and copypasta were phrases used on 4chan, mainly the /b/ section.

Anyway, etymology lesson complete, on to the point of this post. As I said, I’ve been recording many creepypastas for Radio Free Caemlyn, and, given the nature of that podcast feed, things tend to get lost in the shuffle. Here, then, is a linked list of all the creepypastas I have recorded for RFC.

Radio Free Caemlyn’s SCP Series

On Radio Free Caemlyn, I have been doing creepypastas. Part of this has been various SCP entries. For those unfamiliar, SCP is a collection of creepypastas, based on an organization, the Foundation, and their attempts to Secure, Contain, and Protect hundreds of objects that possess unexplained, perhaps even supernatural, abilities, that could greatly damage not just mankind, but the world. Each entry is structured as instructions on secure containment of a specific object.

I’ve recorded a number of these for Radio Free Caemlyn, and, as a way of organizing through the cluttered podcast feed, I here present a listing of all the SCP entries I’ve recorded.

SCP-002: The “Living” Room

Radio Free Caemlyn Main Series

Over on Radio Free Caemlyn, the episode listing is cluttered with various ideas for shows. There are Friday Night Trivia episodes, there are creepypasta recordings, there are poetry readings, and there are the “main series” episodes (usually studio episodes wherein I discuss various topics).

To make sorting through things a bit easier, I’m going to post all the “main series” episodes here, and update as necessary.

Note: I actually didn’t start numbering with episode one. Don’t know why, don’t remember why, but for some reason the first episode is labelled as episode twelve. Doesn’t make sense, but there you have it.

Another note: subtitles for these have nothing to do with episode content. The episode descriptions contain that information. The subtitle is always some sort of play on the episode number. It’s a thing I got from the Mike O’Meara Show podcast.

Anyway, episode listing:
