If you do it on Friday or Saturday night I can play the part of the drunk a-hole. Not a stretch for me. :)

I'm horrible with time differences (and I can't be bothered googling), but does this mean it will be about 04:30am for us in the UK?

Re: DIC TV

I have collected a page of thoughts on what a good DIC TV episode might look like.

The format of the show should take after Nintendo Power magazine.

1) Letters and call ins

2) A short comic featuring loveable characters featured on NES and SNES games.

3) <Ishkabible mentioned this, but it's not in Nintendo Power anywhere =( > Language Showcase. I'm actually very fond of the idea of doing introductory level things in a new language each week. Part of the fun might be for the experts to write extremely obfuscated code to do the same thing and then msg it live so all the newbs to that language can be like "wtf is that?". It could be extremely fun.

4) Previews: A segment where upcoming technology can be discussed and drooled over.

5) Power Profiles: An interview with someone who is good at being interviewed.

6) Playback: A section or mention reminiscing about games of old. Or reminiscing on the FAIL semantics of languages that made our lives harder until they changed things in the latest version.

7) Reviews: Talk about some code that you've done (or someone's done in the community), or talk about some famous person's code. Or review some important technology like in Previews, but it might not be all that new.

8) Community: The community section is dedicated to Nintendo-related things.

Some of this I took straight from wikipedia's nintendo power page so it might need working out.

We should also talk about how the government is trying to kill our jobs with SOPA-like legislation (that also is not in Nintendo Power magazine, but I think it would work out).


Also, does anyone else notice that it's a lot easier listening to a podcast with a host + a co-host that is patently less prepared yet still playfully engaging and supportive? Would there be any chance we could get a co-host going? An example would be The Ruby Show or Stuff You Should Know podcast (although the ruby show guys both prepare equally it seems like, but on separate topics which makes their show a little more "void" and "spacious" regarding back and fourth between the two).


P.S. plz introduce and segway the show with comical, dic related slogans

"Welcome to another 45min episode of DIC TV, we try harder and longer for your pleasure."
"Here's some DIC for thought, did you know..."
I can't think of any others, maybe some will occur to you guys.

Thanks for the really great suggestions. Being such a new show, these first few episodes are bound to be a process of refinement--meaning much of everything is subject to change. Personally, if gabehabe wasn't almost completely across the word from me, I'd ask him to be co-host. I could imagine that would be an interesting show.

I fully intend to call-in every other week while slobbering drunk and make shameless sexual advances toward the host. What was that number again?

I sent it to you over pm...

It might not sound like it's the call in line, but for what you have described, I fully assure you that it is.

In that case, Skaggles, I'm going to take over hosting when we start having people call in. Public phone sex is a fetish of mine.
