Going down in flames since 2008


TANcast 011 – Translate Server Error

August 10th, 2008 . by Tim Babb (TANcast's #1 Host/Editor Fan)

This week the TANboys start of with a truncated salute to the late Bernie Mac before pissing all over the Olympics, China, and McDonalds! Then they move on to Tim’s Vegas day trip to see Star Trek: The Experience and strike a blow for gay rights. Noah reviews the movie “Be Kind Rewind” and Tim reviews “Pineapple Express.” Then the fellas revel in their Brad Pitt man-crush before spending way too long talking about Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever. They talk trailers for Tropic Thunder, Max Payne, and The Punisher and rumors for next season’s CSI. Then talk of brain farts leads to Tim’s poor performance on the Netcot podcast. And then, in a last ditch effort to lower the level of the discussion as much as possible…they talk whores for a while.

    [this is me commenting as I listen. because I have no life. also because I always have something to say and forget. wooo?]
    OK, I’m not a huge Chris Crocker fan either…but it’s annoying me that people honestly believe that he’s completely serious about everything he says. Because about 95% of the time…Chris Crocker is joking.
    hahahaha. teef.
    not nearly as many remarks as I anticipated. now I feeling foolish.

    Tim, seriously…I used to be a huge Trekkie, and even I would have been hard pressed to spend THAT amount of time at the Experience.
    Chris Crocker is one of those things I consider myself lucky to have avoided. I have no idea who this person even is.
    Thanks for another podcast, guys. Makes that drive from Rancho Cucamonga to Anaheim that much more enjoyable.
    So essentially, the drive has been upgraded from being anally raped by Superman to just having a cathater inserted.

    I think you are way off. This podcast is perfectly suited for those of us who heard you on Netcot. Netcot was nice, but there was always that little something missing, and I think I have found it at TANcast. Whether it is Noah commenting on his massive junk, Andy’s not so skewed view on politics, or his more than skewed view of himself, the circle is now complete.
    How many listeners are you up to now? 5?

  4. TonyNo Gravatar Says:

    Ya know, it’s always funny to comment on how few people you have listening/reading your work….but it really has me curious.

    Have you guys been able to come up with a number on how many people are listening to the podcast?

  5. NoahNo Gravatar Says:

    We actually don’t know how many people listen, I am sure there is a way to figure it out but Andy is the resident nerd. So I leave it to him to figure out. I am sure there is more then 5 but not many I am sure compared to other Podcasts.

    I actually just found a way to make our web server spit out convenient podcast stats!

    It turns out that all I needed to do was slaughter a kid (a goat, not a child) under the August moon in a circle drawn with the urine of 5 virgin pan-handlers (the modern equivalent of Gypsy princesses) while chanting “Ech-Apa! Sehrp-Drow! PEE AYCH PEE !!!” and making the sign of the cross over my third nipple (thank God I came equipped with a spare!) until a cloud the shape of a bunny slid across the moon’s face.

    Once that was done, I came back inside, fired up the WordPress Admin console, checked the settings of the podPress plugin, and located and switched on “stats”.

    That last part was a real bitch.

    I’m shocked. In just over 24 hours since I enabled logging, this single episode of TANcast (posted 5 days ago) has been downloaded from the website, listened to online, or pulled via the feed (mostly iTunes) by 15 unique IP addresses other than me and we have had 54 total “unique views” of all the podcasts.

    I’ll be really interested in seeing how many unique IPs grab the next episode. We may have underestimated the size of our listener base, thinking it microscopic when it might be merely tiny.

    And another thing I’m curious about…
    You guys have your podcast up on iTunes….is there any way to get it up on the Zune Music Store?
    Doesn’t bug me either way…just the lazy bit in me would like to subscribe through there, but it’s just as easy to save it off the site when it’s put up.
    And if I’m getting too annoying, just lemme know, and also let Tim know. He knows where I work, and he knows that I’m not allowed to retaliate against anything he does to me.

  9. AndyNo Gravatar Says:

    Tony, I’ve now submitted our podcast to the Zune Marketplace. We’ll see if they let us in.

    When in doubt, you can always point your software to:


  10. TonyNo Gravatar Says:

    Andy, that’s cool. I’ll keep my eye open for it.

    And let’s be honest, I’m going through their podcasts right now, and with the million and one podcasts they have in their medicine section about sex, swinging, Lesbian Mafia, Naked News, etc., I’d be very surprised if they wouldn’t let you guys in.

    Keeping my fingers crossed, and when it’s up, if they have any way to rate it, you’ll get a high one.
