Guess what? I’m an idiot.

Yes, today Tom and Andy joined me in my house for our fortnightly podcast recording. For once we were all on form at the same time. Tom was the most verbal he’s been in years and jokes were flowing like good wine.

Then I looked at the field recorder to check how long we’d been going, it said 00:00:00. For the first time in nearly four years I’d forgotten to press record. Well, unless you count the nine hour podcast we did where I forgot to press record and we lost the first half an hour. However that was being broadcast so people at least heard it.

Normally forgetting to record would be annoying but this time it was completely gutting. We tried to repeat what we’d done but our hearts just weren’t in it. So we’re going to try again next week.

Not sure why I’m blogging about it. After all is was only a silly mistake but sometimes you feel like you’ve let everyone down and this is one of those times.

Still, if the worst of my worries is forgetting to record a silly podcast, my life can’t be all that bad. Of course it doesn’t help that I’m dying and may only have another 40 years to make podcasts.  Will people be still listening to podcasts in 40 years? It will probably be all brainplugs, robot radio and hover-talking.

If you want to cheer me up then subscribe to Dab and Tench on iTunes. There is a new one out. Me and Andy are stupidly proud of our tiny achievement, so do it to put a smile on his stupid hairy face.

 

I’m going to get very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very drunk now.

Byes.

Back in the early days of this Century, I made some money by saying the odd funny thing in public. On one of these occasions a fellow funny talker told me that I should write a blog (because that was the sort of thing funny talking people did back then.) Now, I’m not the sort of person who does things the easy way, so I rejected all the ready made blogging platforms and started my own website. Since then it’s become a repository for whatever stuff is bubbling out of my brains and a directory of various podcasts and videos that I’ve made with my friends and is completely unnecessary.
