I tried to find a video of the Emperor’s New Groove where Yzma gets turned into a cat and it’s hilarious and adorable. But all I could find were fandubs, most of which were terrible. Why the heck do people make versions of this stuff and put it out there on the internet! It’s a big “hey everyone, look at me and how I wasted my time!” Except less cool than that.
A week or so ago, Travis of Obesity Panacea, Jason of the Thoughtful Animal, Christie of Observations of a Nerd, and Sci all got together to record a podcast on things that might help you when you start out in grad school. Sci learned several things from this podcast:
1) My voice sounds really funny. Seriously, it sounds NOTHING like I hear in my head. I’m going to have to change my intonation on everything now so I can sound normal to myself.
2) Canadians really DO say “about” like that and it’s hilarious.
3) Christie is awesome. I mean, I knew this before, but really, she’s great.
4) My crutch phrase is “I mean”.
As a group, we also learned that we were all far too serious once the recording actually came on. When we do this again, there will be a two drink minimum. Also, it’s really hard not to interrupt people when you can’t SEE them. Hence, Sci has decided she wants to do a video podcast, using sockpuppets, because it would be both intentionally and probably unintentionally hilarious.
But anyway, here it is! I think we need to do another one, there’s a lot to cover, anyone got any specific questions they want answered?
