Episode the Sixty-Second: Reviewing the Mop & Lucky Files & Chop Socky Boom
Welcome to our experiment in locations. We recorded this episode live from our favourite place here in Guelph, The Joint Cafe. The Joint Cafe makes the best macaroni and cheese, french toast and molasses ginger cookies in the world (at least according to me, Candice)
They were very gracious and accommodating, letting us take up a table with a bunch of equipment and keeping us well lubricated and sated with coffee and cookies.
This may be a permanent solution, but it will almost certainly be where we record the next bunch of episodes since Synndicus Studios is making a move out of their current location, in the heart of downtown Guelph, to some unknown new and exciting location.
Let us know what you think! The sound is certainly different from our usual, but hey, we got coffee and cookies.
And on to the content!
We got some news from the folks at Standard Action about their webcomic, going live tomorrow! (Or is that today?) Be sure and check it out.
And then we watched a webseries about making a webseries… Chop Socky Boom is another one of those shows we’ve never seen but is part of the Super Mashed Up series of crossover web series.
It’s only four episodes so far, but a successful Kickstarter campaign and great reviews and awards from the webseries community means more are on the way.
In the meantime, watch the opening credits over and over and over.
And then, head on over to The Mop & Lucky Files and learn how you can become a Personal Espionage Specialist. This is a plucky girl detective show appealing to an older audience than Ruby Skye P.I. The first season follows one mystery from beginning to solving. But the mystery we all want to know the answer to is, “How does a person end up with the name Mop, and what are the chances she will find a best friend named Lucky?” Hopefully that will be tackled in the next season.
Thanks for listening to our experiment in recording studios. Let us know your thoughts about recording in the wild. I guess we will find out if you listen to our show for the content, or for the excellent sound quality.
And one final note… Our biggest fan Rob Routledge moved even further away from us this week, all the way to Nanaimo, BC. Good thing he won that shirt before he moved so we didn’t have to ship it to him. He assures us he will spread the good word of Limited Release out there on the island, so we expect to start seeing more tweets, Facebook comments, Google+ fans and emails from BC!
