Yesterday a new podcast came out featuring Andre Stojka and Katie Leigh.  I personally do not care much for Whit's new voice.  Be watching this month for a new poll where you can vote on which Whit voice you liked the best.  You can listen to the podcast here.

Did you notice the "About Me" link at the top.  This leads you to a new page with information about me.  I may be adding some new pages soon so keep warching the blog.

Oh, and while I'm thinking about it, don't pay any attention to the text below that tells you at what time I posted.  I must have picked the wrong time zone.  I usually do not post at seven something in the morning like it claims in some earlier posts.

Glimpse at #5

In other news I got an email containing a glimpse at the repackage of #5.  NOTE: This is not the final cover.  Just preliminary artwork.

The Inspiration Station Part 1: The Review

Monday, March 8, 2010  |

Finally!  Odyssey is releasing new episodes to play over the internet and the radio.  It's so exciting!  Anyway, here's my review of the Inspiration Station.
The biggest thing that I didn't like is that Andre Stojka is playing Whit.  Andre's voice sounds way different than Paul Herlinger.

Also something kind of confused me.  Connie told Whit that she had talked to his friend.  However she didn't explain anything else about this remark.  What's up?  We'll probably find out in part 2. 

The episode seemed to explode with newer electronics.  The computers and phones in older episode made funny noises and sounded very un-computer-ish.  Sarah at the Unofficial Odyssey Podcast noticed this too.  "It is definitely weird," she said, "hearing stuff about all these electronic devices...BAM! you have headphones, cell phones, DVR, GPS, laptop, dvds..."

She also noticed a goof alert that the Odyssey team made.  After the computers and displays all malfunctioned, Whit said that he had never seen anything like that happen before.  But he had.  When Dr. Blackgaard and Richard Maxwell used Whit's modem to hack into the Applesauce program. 

Anyway, I liked most of the new characters.  Connie acted kind of mean though.  She doesn't usually do that.  Especially to Whit.  Eugene was rude to Matthew.  Even so, I can't believe what Matthew did to Whit's electronic stuff.  Hasn't he ever heard that it's rude to mess around with other peoples laptops/iPod's/phones. 

In conclusion Focus did a good job with their new episode, and I can't wait for part 2.  Plus keep watching this blog for new reviews as new episodes come out.

Read Sarah's review.

New Logo

I'm thinking about making a new logo.  There's a few possibilities below.  Go over to the sidebar and vote for which one you like the best. (Note: The logo with the most number of votes will not necessarily be the new logo.)  Also I may make some more, so these are not the only choices.
