Creative Day: What is Constantly Calibrating?

Yesterday morning I sat down and thought to myself, “What should I write about for today’s Creative Day?” Well as you all might imagine, it’s never a good sign when I have to sit and think about what would be best to write about. Most articles I’ve written for the site have been ideas that popped into my head and immediately made their way onto your screens. This was not the case for yesterday’s article as evidenced by the fact that I’m referring to it as yesterday’s article. This has become a common problem for me since Constantly Calibrating began: getting articles out in a timely, regular fashion. The major reason for these complications is that had you asked me three months ago about my daily plans, I would not list running a nerd-culture multimedia website. (Yes, I realize our site barely qualifies as multimedia currently, but in this area patience can be a virtue.)

The honest truth is that if you asked me a little over two months ago about my plans for the site I would probably respond back, “Site? What site? Constantly Calibrating is just simple podcasting Steven and I came up with.” Well this past Sunday was three months since we started the podcast and two months since I started devoting serious time to the site. These days it seems like 80% of my time is spent planning out things for the site, but here lies the major issue. Planning is one thing, implementation is something entirely different.

Let me pause here for a moment, because I feel some history of where Constantly Calibrating began might be necessary. Those of you who listen to our podcast have heard us talk at varying lengths about our origins, but now seemed like a good time to actually explore this. Instead of going into another lengthy explanation, I’m going to copy an email that I recently sent to the organizers of leetUP. leetUP is the nerd carnival organized by Kevin Pereira, former co-host of Attack of the Show on G4, and also the event that spawned the idea for Constantly Calibrating. The email was my attempt at a request for leetUP to make an appearance near Phoenix during its upcoming tour, but it started as a simple email expressing my love and admiration for the event. Read on for my email as well as where we hope ConCal goes next. Continue reading

Big announcement time. Starting today you can officially find our site by directing your choice browser over to www.ConstantlyCalibrating.com. Make sure to bookmark the new address, that is if you’re into bookmarking or have done it before for us.

A New Author Enters the Arena!

Hey, so with E3 fast approaching it seemed like the right time to welcome another member to our friendly little team: Brad Coggins, or Xanoxim as he will be known until such time as we venture out into our own site. (Soon.)

Give him the same vague and unfocused enthusiasm you all have shown Steven and I.

Calibrating Our Own News

Good morning to you all!

I just wanted to take some time out to sit down and thank you all for taking the time to visit our little site here. The support we have been receiving has been phenomenal. There are a couple of news items related to us that I would like to mention while I have your attention though. Wait, no seriously they’re kind of important! Don’t look away! Hey you can watch porn and read our site at the same time, it’s not difficult, just give me a moment. What if I told you there was the possibility to win a code for the Ghost Recon: Future Solder closed beta on the Xbox360. Do I have your attention now?

Our podcast today is brought to you by the letter S for Skype or Static. Steven and I decided to experiment with using Skype to record a podcast this week and it worked out phenomenally, except for one catch. Apparently Skype was altering the input levels throughout the recording to account for Steven’s low not-in-the-room voice, which caused my already higher voice to come in blisteringly loud. I managed to fix most of the spiking issues, however my editing skills are quite limited so there is still a bit of distortion. My apologies, but rest assured that we will make sure this doesn’t happen again. On today’s podcast we discuss our thoughts on my recent purchase of a Kinect; our opinions of The Cabin in the Woods; and summer movies we are looking forward to. This is Episode IV of Constantly Calibrating, thank you and enjoy!
