Vidcast 1: WWRp 3X3 Pack!

VidCast 1: WWRp3X3Pack




ThreeA radio is made possible by a team of dedicated threeA fans. One member of the ThreeA Radio team, Yama86 (also known as Yamata86), has created a series of unboxing videos. These impressively shot videos feature a variety of different threeA figures, and give fans a chance to view them in a way that static pictures just can't do.

ThreeA Radio is proud to present the first of what will be a series of special VidCasts created by Yama86. In this episode, We take a look at the World War Robot Portable 3X3 pack, which featured a collection of 1/12 scale Large Martin, Damn Large Martin, and Bramble figures, as well as a 1/12 version of Blanc DePlume.

Thank you, Spanky Stokes!

Episode 8 is just about ready, but in the meantime, here's a quick interview that appeared a while back on SpankyStokes.com. HUGE Thank you to Anubis2Night of Fallen Regime.com for conducting the interview.

http://www.spankystokes.com/2010_09_08_archive.html

Eric, I love the new podcast can you tell us a bit more about it. How did you get started?
The podcast started with an idea I threw out on the old threeA Legion forum. I'd had a few beers that night, so the little voice telling me it was a silly idea was out of commission. Surprisingly, response to the idea was overwhelmingly positive. I think what sealed the deal for me was when Ashley chimed in and said "Do it!"

So Eric how long does it usually take to produce a episode?
Gathering the material is pretty simple; the hard part is the editing. When recording a conversation with other threeA fans, it's easy to get caught up in the moment and drift off topic. Listening, then re-listening to the recordings and deciding what to prune is where the minutes start to turn into hours. Sometimes, the recordings turn out perfect as-is; other times, it takes a little work. A thirty minute segment can take up to 2 hours of work to clean up.

So how has the experience changed so far as you've produced it? Do you have any future plans for where your gonna take the show?
The podcast is still a baby; it's finally learned to walk but it isn't running yet. Producing it has changed in many ways as the show has evolved, but the biggest change has been deciding on a set format for each episode. Ever since cracking that nut, putting the episodes together has gotten a TON easier.

I'm also learning how to more effectively use my recording/mixing software with each episode. The program I use is a freeware program called Audacity. It is surprisingly flexible, and has a ton of cool bells & whistles. The hard part has been finding out where those bells & whistles are, and how to use them.

As for the future, I'd like to eventually earn the assistance of some regular contributors. I'd also like to eventually find a regular co-host. I could go on and on for hours talking about different threeA toys and Ashley Wood comics by myself, but I think it's more entertaining for listeners to hear two or more people discuss a topic.

Do you know if Ashley Wood has listened to it yet?
Dude, I have no idea! I'd like to think that he has, and that he approves of the show, but I haven't asked him yet. I have the utmost respect for Ashley Wood; his accomplishments as both an artist and a businessman are frankly astounding. Not only that, but he seems like a genuine, down to earth good guy. But in the end, I'm not doing the podcast for him. I'm doing it for his fans.

Any plans on trying to get Ashley on?
Not yet. Gotta learn to walk before I try to run. (LOL) Earlier, I referred to the podcast as still being in its infancy. Having Ash on now would be like turning the podcast into a child-star! And child-stars don't tend to end up well.

Also, having him on would be the ULTIMATE; I feel like there would be nowhere to go after that but downhill. However; with that being said, I'd jump at the chance to have him on the show. I'm just not going to push it yet.

Is there anything you really want to cover on the podcast but haven't yet?
TONS. What springs to mind right off the bat is an idea presented to me by Samir, one of the threeA forum moderators. He suggested having some of the resident artists and art collectors hold a discussion on Ashley Wood's art. I've been in touch with several people, and the idea is still in the works. Unfortunately, they're spread all over the globe, so finding a time that works for all of them has proven to be difficult.

Do you plan on Doing a live podcast for the next 3A event?
For episode 3, Chas, Yama, Solodice and I did a live recording during the Heavy Bramble drop, and it was a blast! I'd like to do something like that in the future, but with more participants. The energy generated by drop-nights is an amazing thing, and it's kick-ass to have the chance to capture it for the podcast. I'm not going to be able to do it for the TK Baka drop, but after that, I'd love to do it again.

If there's one thing you want people to come away from with this what would it be?
An awareness that they are part of large community of like-minded, really cool folks from all over the world.

Wear your threeA fandom with pride!

"What Does Nom DePlume Look Like?"




Episode 2 of the ThreeARadio Podcast is now online. Thanks to all of the folks who have contributed with design work, music suggestions, audio submissions and online discussion.

In this episode, I take a look at the book World War Robot, which features art by Ashley Wood and writing by Ashley Wood and T.P. Louis. The book is actually not a ThreeA publication, but since a huge amount of ThreeA toy ideas come from the book, I figured it was worth looking into.




This episode clocks in at over 2 hours long, and that's AFTER extensive editing. Much of the material cut from this episode was too good to discard, so it is being incorporated into episode 3.

Editing, Editing, Editing... Oh; and editing.

Spent quite a few hours editing today. Fun, but tedious- Turns out I'm only about a purple-belt in Audacity.

But I'm a tenacious f*cker, and I managed to plug away until I found a way to make the program do what I wanted. Things are coming together nicely; still on schedule for the show to drop this Sunday. Only question now is whether to hold out for one final piece of audio, or polish it up as it is now.

Oh; and here's the logo -

Things are coming together nicely, and it looks like the premier episode will be ready for posting this Sunday! Special thanks to ThreeA Legion members Pituvision, BakerTheZombie, Devours, Gimbat, ChasBrok, Sir Dirty Girty, and Madame Maniscalco for their assistance and support.

Coming soon...

This is pretty much an experiment. Many podcasts out there are 'niche-podcasts', but I'm not aware of many that are as 'niche-y' as a podcast dedicated to the toys, apparel, and art of Ashley wood.

Hell; I'm not even sure if I WANT to know about other uber-niche podcasts.

Anyway; my big toe has now been dipped into the podcasting sea. Here's hoping that there isn't a freaky undertow waiting to sweep me away....

More to come...
