There are some weeks that you just wish you could hit the reset button on your life.
You’ll notice that there has not been a GameHounds or Humpdate for longer than usual. Yeah, we noticed, too.
Not for lack of trying. We had repeated, yet unrelated, problems with GameHounds Episode 42 over several nights. So, after a certain point you just throw your hands up and say, “F*ck it.”
Which is what we did — but we did so promising that we’d deliver a massive, mindblowing, best-evar Humpdate this week to make up for it.
We pre-prepped the show. We double-checked our show notes. Hell, we even freakin’ spellchecked our shownotes.
We got listener Spazmatt, our guest host, online good and early. We didn’t even freak out when we had some audio problems. “We can do this,” we thought. “We must do this. For the fans!”
And then –after two hours of recording some of the most hilarious listener-generated rants we’ve had in a long time — only then did we realize that we had done the podcast entirely wrong and it was entirely unlistenable.
So, again we threw our hands up in the air and said, “F*ck it.” Not for lack of trying, but because it became patently evident that someone up there did not want us to release a podcast this week. And no amount of determination on our part would change things.
Thus we present to you the Not a Humpdate. It is not a podcast. There is no discussion of gaming within. It’s not really anything except an explaination in detail of what happened and why we aren’t discussing gaming.
You’re welcome to listen, as we’ve tried to make it somewhat entertaining. However, if you don’t want to hear Edie and Spazmatt bellyache about all the messed up things that have happened in the last week, you’re also welcome to ignore it.
Hopefully this curse will abate sometime before Sunday, when we really do release a new GameHounds episode, this time with guest host Commander Tim joining Edie and Cooper Hawkes.
Enjoy… actually, scratch that. Don’t enjoy. Because This is Not a Humpdate. Dammit.
