Woooo! Podcast! :D



But I suppose we could have some of this, too.




I am still very very stoked to get my Rampage, on its way from across the pond thanks to El Duque.

And it's great fun to hear all of you having clearly a great time, and fun, and bouncing off each other following the agenda, more or less (who cares about the agenda anyway, that's the host's problem :P ). I'd love to try out BotCon one year, and I almost did this time round. Next year seems more promising!


Sad to hear Strafe is not as good as it's been looking so far, I've been put off Slash as it is, and now this. :-(


Is the next episode the BotCon bash bonanza?

Provided there aren't weird technical problems we can't overcome (always a possibility when recording god knows where), then yes. :grin:

This post is another opportunity for me to warn folks that aren't into hearing us drunkenly ramble at Botcon to steer clear of 95. It will likely be very raw with lots of cursing and substance abuse. Which, come to think of it, is a great follow up to a rock band themed episode :lol:

And consistent burping, might I add. :P

I believe that the Transformers Collector's Club took some used Arcee toys and repainted them to Transmutate without caring about any of the other important things on the toy. I'm glad I didn't subscribe because you all make it sound like the toy is hurting your lives. :lol:

I strongly disagree with Seibertron's opinion on non-attendee sets. Those who couldn't attend the convention would just go to the secondary market, buying from eBay scalpers after the show.

FunPub already makes the Primus packages available first, and I missed out on a loose bagged set, of which only a tiny minority were available for non-attendees.

And the at-show exclusives have certainly made me wish I'd attended BotCon to avoid eBay markups before, like SG Optimus from BotCon 2012 or Starscream from BotCon 2014.

A lot of what I heard was Skype chat notifications, background TV and phone message 'blings'.
Were you referring to something else? :-?

Who kept belching during the episode? They kept getting louder and louder, thank God I wasn't on or I would've wet myself.

Great episode, guys!

I laughed my ass off when Razorclaw mentioned the movie Bumblebee repaint I tease him about.

PS - He totally deserves it...

I think the next episode should have multiple farts in the mic... Or how about someone taking a piss mid-show capturing all the toilet twinkles and finishing with an epic flush?

If you were a true fan, you'd have rusty screws too.


It's all that figure licking goodness.

I have a wireless headset so there's been a few episodes of WOJM that I've been talking and gone to the bathroom.

In all seriousness, what's up with all the background noise? I enjoy the podcast a lot but that shit is obnoxious.

Ok, what is everyone referring to here? I legit don't know.

Is there background static noise due to the recording quality? Is it a noise someone is making on purpose? Did Jon edit in something I am unaware of?

For real here...what is the actual issue?

Sometimes you can hear background noise like people talking (not on the show) or a TV. In this particular episode someone kept belching into the mic which, as the episode went on, became a little distracting.

Also it sounded like someone was playing with the Universe Onslaught mould, because I kept hearing the Siren and gun sounds from the electronics.

Hrm, ok...we will fix it next recording.

tbh, I did not hear any of that while recording.

Maybe someone was pushing mute thinking when making those noises and it worked for the call, but somehow made it onto the recording?

I don't even know if that's possible, but I'll correct it for next time.

That would actually make the belching in the episode pretty funny...and keeps the mid-show piss in a future episode a possibility.

If each member is recording their own voice track it's possible since they'd have to mute that input too.

All of the above and general toy noise every episode. Noise pollution totally distracts me from enjoying the show. Every time I started to become immersed again, belching, tv noise, toys clicking. Take your pick. In a medium that is solely sound, it becomes obnoxious incredibly fast.

Belching and TV noise should indeed never happen and we'll do our best in the future to eliminate it.

As for toy clicking, we've actually gotten a lot of feedback that it's part of the charm of the show. Also, it can help when talking about a toy to have it in hand sometimes and seeing as Transformers transform, this can be a side effect. In short - that's going nowhere, but we'll try to be sure not to constantly grate a ratchet joint into any microphones :)
