Its been a while... hasn't it.
Well, as of this moment, as I'm writing this out, I am no longer part of the CyberNauts Cast. Well, I haven't been as of Monday of November 26th. So as of the past 2 weeks, I haven't done anything podcast related at all. I haven't touched an episode to edit, or plan out recording times, or none of that crap that I just don't really have the time or effort for right now.
To make a long story short, we had an episode set up where were going to interview some people one of my (ex) co-host wanted on. Within the middle of the interview recording with these guest, we had some trolls show up and make a mockery of things which made that interview went south fast (and ill admit, looking back at some of the things that happened, it was kinda funny). I was more disappointed in some people than I was angry, because knowing the people that trolled the interview, it wasn't going to do any good to blow up on them. My ex co-host didn't see it that way, and wanted to put a perma ban on the perps. Knowing how our system works (which ill let you in on a secret, WE DON'T HAVE ONE!), I thought the ban idea was pretty dumb. But what made me angry was the fact that I wanted too move on and not think about it, while the person who had this set up would never let me hear the end of it, and that is what seemed to tick me off more than anything.
Not only that, but there is some clash of personalities in the group that was happening before this incident, which I clearly saw when this took place. There was no way we could all go back to working on the same page again. Then I realized that it was better for one other guy ( and including me) to split off from the podcast and leave it up to the co-host to take the reigns. I wanted to drop the guy from the site, but after remembering he started it, I wasn't going to argue with the guy and felt it was a better and more mature decision to let him handle it. Since then, its been a nice break from one thing that occupies my time to work on other things, such as a social life, schooling, and spending time playing Skyrim (23 hours in so far... and so much more to go). A well deserved break was what I really needed, and it is paying off.
But the transition to make this happen wasn't that bad. He agreed with what me and my other co-host had to say, and we did a final episode briefly (and completely BS'ing the whole thing) mentioning why we were leaving. But all I can do is hope for the best with the new leadership.
But... that doesn't mean I'm done with podcast forever. As a matter of fact, me and the other guy (plus another co-host) will be starting another podcast officially by the new year. It's still in me to podcast, and that is something I won't let go unless that time comes one day. With what we have been discussing, its going to be a bi-weekly release-ish podcast that is going to stick to this blog's formula. So much so, this blog has a sister site: The Anime of Yesteryear Podcast.
So far all we've done is made test post on who we are. I've got a section where I will list off the anime (and video games/WHATEVER) we will be reviewing each week, so there is an archive for people to hear what we have to say on something. We will shoot to get our first episode out by the new year, so stay tuned for that.
And with that said, I have another batch of episodes for you guys. And I will working on getting a magazine scanned and shown... maybe around Christmas, or tomorrow... who knows (but me). But if I don't hear from you honky cracker-jacks, Marry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!
