    Default Pipeline PREVIEWS Podcast: Saturday, 07 Oct 2006

    I just finished editing it. Of course, it was recorded in two parts and I have yet to figure out how to merge the two parts in Garageband. That's tomorrow's first To Do item.

    The whole chit chat between Jamie and I lasts almost exactly one hour long.

    Wow. We do so go on.

    More tomorrow.

    HA! We're like a comic book sewing circle. :D

    Thanks for the update.

    bring one file into the other and select SHARE. Garage band will compress them into the same mp3 or aiff file.

    I found the problem was that I could copy-and-paste a track from one file to another, but that the master volume changes wouldn't be carried over with them. So I just redid that on the back half and all is good now.

    The podcast is up! Download all 27 meg now, everyone!

    I can look that up when I get home, but I know it's less than I've spent in years now. Part of that just comes as occupational "hazards" -- comp copies -- but other parts come from more judicious spending habits. My weeks at the comics shop lately range from $15 to $60, but seem to be settling down around the $30-$40 mark lately. Every now and then there'll be a week with two hardcovers and I'll spike up to $90 or so, but that's not that often anymore, thanks to the glory of Amazon.

    I listened to the Indie Spinner Rack Dave Sim interview and the newest iFanboy podcast yestedray. I think I can make it through this one.

    Should I have my copy of Previews open when I listen to this? Do you just go over the comics section, or do you get into the really back part with the books and toys and magazines and such?

    Thanks.

    You don't really need to have it open, but we do reference a bunch of items. It's not a page by page recap, but instead we talk about topics that inspired us as we looked Previews over. And it is more than just about the comics section. We touch on statues, toys, and posters to name a few. :D

    That's not too bad.

    I've been averaging over $100 a week (after DCBS discount ) but I'm in the process of cutting back big time. I've basically cut the amount I'm getting almost in half.

    I guess I generally drop in the low $200's in a month from DCBS with weekly shipping, sometimes a little higher. I also buy a handful of titles (10-12?) from my local shop.

    If you count in busts and statues that I buy, I've recently been pre-ordering them even cheaper than I can get through DCBS so that $'s somewhat seperate. But I'll get 1 or 2 mini-busts a month on average.

    AND - Aside from that I play on ebay a bit or dive into back issue bins, so I may drop a few bucks that direction each month too.

    I don't have access to it now, but I'll post a month's complete order later. If you want to see a sample of what we buy each week check out any thread on this board that has "Shopping List" in it! :D

    Great job on the podcast, guys. It was nice to hear some back and forth interaction. Plus, you both approach previews differently and we (the listener) get more from the podcast due to that. Maybe you could do this with every Previews?

    Just checking the spreadsheet I keep -- it looks like my weekly comics take is about $15-$30 before any trades or hardcovers. Obviously, one of those would double the spending, just about.

    13th - Thanks. Doing this again in the future is a definite possibility. I'm looking at other ways to bring even more people into the podcast, too, but we'll see how that goes in the next couple of weeks. . .

    I get my books from DCBS and highly recommend them. They do a great job getting me my comics. The 40% off for the main publishers with DCBS is really great discount.

    Here is most of what I've been getting recently...

    I'm in the process of trying to cut back on my spending due to some financial concerns. That and I'm just getting too damn many comics books. Last week I got 30 comics and the week before I got 40. I'm filling a short box a month and need to slow that down substantially as I'm starting to run out of space to put them.
