LAMBcast #139: Celebrating the LAMB’s 5th Birthday

by Dylan · November 1, 2012 · Featured, LAMBcast, Podcasts · 10 Comments

In this time of celebration and rebirth, I thought it only fitting to reflect back on the LAMB for a bit.  To talk about how it all began, where it’s been, what’s gone right and maybe wrong, and where we might be going.  I was joined by Joel, Nick Powell, Kristen, and Pat on air, and I must give thanks to Nostra, Branden, Candice, Fogs and Jessica for their birthday messages (the latter two even sent in voice mails!).  Finally, thanks to Andina, who wrote up a whole post wishing the LAMB a happy birthday.

    Great show!

    I was wondering why the link to the podcast isn’t is this post as well as it’s an extra step to go to Facebook if you want to stream it.

    • Dylan Dylan says:

      Thanks!

      That’s done for bandwidth/cost issues. I can’t put the type of streaming player that shows up on Facebook here, and the one that does show up is kinda screwy in the way that it works with Podomatic. The one issue I’ve had with them is the way they count your bandwidth kind of regardless of whether or not someone hits play on a player. I don’t understand it totally but I know when a player used to be here, we’d run out of space quickly and that would cause all sorts of problems. Downloads don’t have that effect.

      • Nostra says:

        Ah, that clears it up, was wondering why the extra step was done, but that is a good reason. 🙂

        • Joel says:

          I don’t like not having an embedded player on the post directly unfortunately Podomatic doesn’t have a very good player for the reasons Dylan are describing.

          However, look from the bright side of it? Now its super easy to give us a iTunes review! 🙂

          • Nostra says:

            It would be if I listened to podcasts at home on my iPad, but I usually listen to them at work either on my PC or my Android tablet. Don’t have an iPhone 😉

  2. Happy Birthday Lamb!!!! 5 Years and still growing strong. I’m very happy to have met a lot of great writers and movie lovers.

  3. Kristen says:

    Kudos for using my a scene from my favorite movie to promote this! Sixteen Candles images can be used for anything!

    • Dylan Dylan says:

      How serendipitous! I was looking for more lamb/sheep birthday images, but they were all too similar to what Joel had already used. So I just wanted an iconic movie birthday scene.

    The other cancelled game I wanted to bring up but forgot during the recording was Jason’s Photo Shop competition. I think thats the best proof of a great game that unfortunately didn’t work out. Also when it comes to Man I Love Films success with screenshot game I do think that Facebook is the key for that one. At least when seeing others also host similar games. I have gotten two admissions for people who wan’t to run our Facebook page and I’ll be suggesting to the one who is chosen that he starts up that one again but on Facebook this time.

    Also something I thought about during recording is how many new LAMBs find us by the sheer amount of banners on member bloggers. Especially when they on multiple members within the same sub-commenting group. Its a very good word of mouth source.
