Sci-Fi Corporations: Weyland-Yutani

I’ve started brainstorming various corporations from the science fiction film world, and thought I’d introduce a new one each week, starting with my personal favorite.
The Weyland-Yutani Corporation is from the various Alien films. Simply called The Company in the movies, Weyland-Yutani is responsible for bringing humankind face-to-face (literally) with the alien species, in hopes of great advances in The Company’s bio-weapons division. Thanks, Weyland-Yutani!

Free Juggling Lessons!

We won’t be able to podcast tonight, and I’m disappointed. I’ve gotten used to our schedule, and look forward to our Sunday evening recording sessions. It’s my own fault, though. When we first signed up for Libsyn space, I failed to keep in mind how archiving works. Once a podcast is one month old, Libsyn archives it, and frees up that much space to add another episode. Our first podcast was very short, and so the space made available when it archived was equally small. Since we already did a mini-cast last week, I didn’t want to get into a routine where we need to mini-cast two weekends in a row before getting enough space to have a regular show. Long story short, we will return next Sunday evening with a full-length episode, and be on the correct schedule from then on. In the meantime, I’ll work on some bonus content for the show.
I do know how to juggle three balls, but don’t have any lessons to share. Would you have read this post if I named it Incredibly Boring Excuse for Not Recording Tonight?

Episode 5 Shownotes: 50% Less Awesome

We’re getting ready for our next podcast episode by not brainstorming a topic. We have limited space on Libsyn until the 23rd, so will need to record a shorter show. Maybe I should just edit out half of each sentence we say. Perhaps the verbs. There will be too many of them anyway, don’t you think? In reality, if I would just cut my usage of the word awesome by 50%, each podcast would be about ten minutes shorter, anyway.
I’ve not mentioned this before, but if anyone is curious about the music we play in the podcast, it’s my own, written under the name EyeOh. There’s a link to my sorely-in-need-of-an-update music site on the sidebar.

Tastes Like Chicken

All four members of the C.A.V.E. will be downtown tonight, shambling around as part of the first annual Zombie Walk (capitalized to increase importance). I spent the morning brewing up blood, and rubbing mud on my torn clothes. Zombies have it tough. Walking is very difficult for us, but to make matters worse, we survive on brains, which are notoriously difficult to get out of their containers. We keep organizing walks like the one tonight to raise awareness of our plight, but they keep getting mistaken for invasions. I’m sure we will podcast about it tomorrow.
