Gaming like a motherfucker


Welcome to my Monday Morning Rant for Monday the 19th of April. I’ve not done much the past week but play computer games (playing Outriders right now) so I rant about that!

Vidami Video Looper + Pedalboard

vidami
I got a recommendation in the comments on one of my recent podcasts for a Vidami. I did a google search and found this American made product. I’ve been learning new tricks with the help of a fair few YouTube videos but this pedal box takes it to the next level as it allows you to very easily loop segments of a YouTube video, then slow them down too, best of all it’s completely hands free (as you use your feet). Setting it up was super easy (just download an extension for Chrome), using it is super intuitive and I was slowing down solos on YouTube within minutes and actually learning new licks with ease. Highly recommend it!

pedalboard
Also I’ve been meaning to make a pedalboard for a while now to stop my pedals from moving around and also to raise my pedals off the ground (where they tend to get covered in cat hair!). I had all intentions to just make something out of a wooden bath mat for cheaps and that hipster look and I had absolutely no intentions to pay hundreds of dollars for a bit of metal and ultimately what I think is a bit of a trend and complete rip off. I ended up buying a cheap $75 China made pedalboard that came with all the mounting stuff I needed and a carry bag too.

Monday Morning Rant


This morning I rant about the Rock ‘n’ Roll attitude of Chrissie Hynde of The Pretenders, Stevie Nicks too, social media and a mate who like myself, turns into a bit of a monster when drunk.

Goodbye Buzzsprout

I’ve made the call to terminate my monthly subscription to Buzzsprout, a service which hosts my podcasts and seeds them onto other platforms like Spotify etc. Buzzsprout run a Facebook “community” which IMHO has been a complete waste of time as you’re not allowed to promote or discuss your podcasts with others who use the Buzzsprout service, so instead people end up asking really generic, safe, boring and useless questions.

Last week the moderators put this message up:

Moving forward, there will be ZERO tolerance for soliciting this group with your goods or services.

There are no warnings and you will be banned from the group after your first offense.

It doesn’t matter if someone is asking for an editor and you simply offer your editing services. Our group is not the place to promote your own services.

Acceptable:
“Does anyone know of a podcast editor?” Yes, I used We Edit Podcasts and really liked them

Not Acceptable:
“Does anyone know of a podcast editor?” Yes, I am one. DM me.

I replied in the comments with “Way to kill your community guys! Good one!!!!!” and got this response from a moderator: “Justin Fox this won’t kill the community, but it may become a little more quiet; that’s totally fine. Much preferred actually.
A few well thought out, high quality responses will provide more value than dozens of low quality replies every time”.

Gotta love that snide reply huh?!

“There are no warnings and you will be banned from the group after your first offense.” – This is the bit that doesn’t sit right with me. I’ve founded and run a few successful communities in my career and not once ever did we ever have such a black and white rule as this. To this date I’ve spent $180 US Dollars on their service and I’m glad they won’t be getting another dollar out of me in future!
