It’s Christmas Time Again with Grant’s Advent Calendar Podcast

Grantsadventcalendar

Whatever your religion, you probably have some traditions that center on the Winter Holidays — whether Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza, Winter Solstice or just seeing it as a time for celebration for being “halfway out of the dark!”  One of our traditions has a New Media twist to it.

Every year for the past 4 or 5 (I would guess) we have subscribed to a podcast by Grant Baciocco — Grant’s Advent Calendar. We first met Grant through his great work on The Radio Adventures of Doctor Floyd — a pioneer podcast that brought all the fun and silliness of old time radio to the 21st Century.

Grant’s experience with the Dr. Floyd podcast led him to podcasting one of his Christmas traditions. Each  year his parents would fill an Advent Calendar with trinkets and he would open one door a day, much like many other kids. Grant’s grown up now, but he still brings his “childlike excitement” and silliness to the Advent Calendar each year.

Grant produces a video a day from December 1-25 where he opens the appropriate door on the advent calendar and shares its contents with us. But he also does more — so much more! Each video contains a skit, a parody, a musical number, an on-location opening — you never know quite what to expect each day — which is exactly what an Advent Calendar is all about.

Visit Grant’s Advent Calendar on the web! Episode 1 for 2013 is already available.

You can also catch Grant’s other series, Uncle Interloper Space Explorer on the same channel!

Dog Days of Podcasting – Day 10a – Video: Lifehack 1 – Finding cool new books to read via your library’s sorting shelves

Lifehack 01

 

Want a great way to find cool books to read? Visit your local library. That’s right, your library. Then locate the “Sorting Shelves.” Ask the librarian, if you can’t find themselves. Sorting shelves contain books which have recently been returned by other patrons and are being sorted by subject, so they can be reshelved in their proper locations.

You are almost sure to find something interesting here via pure serendipity. It only makes sense that those books which have circulated recently might be of interest to you, too. These shelves will be a great mixture of every genre, from cookbooks to philosophy, as well a collection of both new books and old.

Next time you are looking for something interesting to read, check out the sorting shelves at your local library. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

Dog Days of Podcasting – Day 8 – Turning Panoramic pictures into videos

Part of the “Dog Days of Podcasting” 30 Day Challenge – http://dogdaysofpodcasting.com

I really like panoramic pictures and in this video I take about 8 of them and turn them into an interesting video. This is just another example, for the Dog Days of Podcasting, how many different types of media can be used to create your podcasts. Your show, your audio, your video doesn’t need to be like anyone else’s — and especially like traditional radio or television. Experiment with whatever you have. Re-use media, arrange it differently, mash it up with something else.

You can see the quality differences here between panorama done with my iPhone and those taken — in multiple slices — with my traditional digital camera. The higher quality the photos that come in, the higher quality the video out, so you may want to take some time to shoot and stitch the panorama before using it in your video editor.

You can see (and interact) with some of these panorama in higher quality on my Occipital Account — which created the 360 Panorama app I use on my iPhone.

Video: Dog Days of Podcasting 01 – Introduction

Dog Days

Here is my kick-off video for the Dog Days of Podcasting event. I am going to use this event as a showcase for all the different ways and methods of podcasting available. You’ll see video shot with camcorders, iPhones and more, audio recorded with my iPhone and high-end audio recorders and even some photo montages and slide shows. There will be interviews, environmental videos (showing a particular location) and all my regular podcasts, too.

Dog Days of Podcasting – 30 Podcasts in 30 Days

For complete information, visit http://dogdaysofpodcasting.com

From the Dog Days of Podcasting Web Site…

“Essentially, it is a challenge to do a podcast for 30 days in a row.

In 2012 Kreg Steppe was looking to give himself a little push in regards to recording his own personal podcast since he wasn’t recording it very often. That turned into a challenge for himself to record a show everyday for 30 days believing that after 30 days it would turn into a habit. Once it was mentioned to Chuck Tomasi he took the challenge too and they decided it would be a great idea to record starting 30 days before Dragon*Con, culminating with the last episode where they would record it together when they saw each other there.

Turns out there were some of our friends that also wanted to get in on the action and took the challenge too. So it grew into a challenge 7 of us took.

This year we are inviting more podcasters to get in on the action. Keep in mind, it’s a fun challenge, and you will not be shamed (too much) if you don’t record every 30 day. It is kind of like the way Drew Carey describes “Whose line is it anyway?”. A fun game were we earn points, but the points don’t matter.

What matters is that we all have fun recording and listening to each other.

Start Date: July 30th, 2013 End Date: August 30th, 2013 Rules: Podcast Once a day for 30 days. Show length is up to you. Most vary from 3 – 5 Min.”

Subscribed 38: EthosLab – Minecraft Done Technical

Today’s edition of Subscribed is another member of the Mindcrack Server, like BDoubleO, VintageBeef and others. Etho is one of the foremost members of the group and has (as of this writing) 860K+ subscribers to his YouTube Channel. Etho takes on the more technical side of Minecraft, developing amazing machines and processes within the vanilla version of Minecraft — something that, in some cases, isn’t easy to do. 

Ethos also has a wry sense of humor that comes out during his individual videos and also in his co-op play with other members of the Mindcrack server. While the more technical videos are a bit beyond my Minecraft skills at the moment, I usually watch just to see what amazing stuff can be done within the Minecraft environment and hear Etho’s unique take.

Sometimes it can be useful to schedule blog posts to go out on a specific date and time. For example, you might be on vacation or away from your office, but still want that content to go out. Both WordPress and Blogger provide support for scheduled posts and this video shows how to use it.
