RSS Feed Shortened

The podcast feed for my podcast “The Overnightscape” has gotten really huge, so I decided to cut it down in size. Basically, back when iTunes started doing podcasting,it would play the OLDEST podcast in your feed as a sample, so I chose #186 because it was a decent show. And I never deleted any shows from the feed. So, by yesterday’s episode, #537, there were 352 shows in the feed, and the feed was over 370K in size! I’ve decided to only keep the last 100 shows in the feed so it doesn’t get unmanageable. Right now the oldest show in the feed is #439, and the feed is around 112K.I know people use the feed to download older shows, and with this in mind I am working on an “archive feed” (or feeds) with all the older shows to make downloading easier. Until I get that done, the previous RSS file is still on the site, named “rss2.xml” – this is temporary so only use it of you need to get the older shows, as I won’t be updating it.

Update: I fixed the video so it looks better now.

No Video Tonight

I’ve been working for hours and hours and I still can’t get the video rendered properly. I’m gonna keep working as long as I can, but it’s not looking good for tonight.

Video Delayed

I’m running into a lot of problems with preparing “The Overnightscape Video Review #2” for release. So I’m going to have to give up for tonight. Hopefully I’ll get it up tomorrow night. This whole video thing is very new to me and I’m getting up to speed on a lot of the different processes and methods of working with video files.

Video: For Joey

[youtube]6nL_INMkxL0[/youtube]

Chas and Teddy and searching for Joey… will they find him? Filmed in and around Madison, NJ circa 1988. Written and Directed by Frank Edward Nora (host of The Overnightscape podcast).

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6nL_INMkxL0

Starring Mad Mike, my brother John, me as the thug with the crowbar and baseball bat, and my friend from college Yasutoshi as Joey. The full version of this video has 5 or so more minutes in the beginning, which has a very different feel to the rest of the piece, so that’s why I cut it out. I actually wrote scripts to several more adventures of Chas and Teddy but I never filmed them. The audio of “For Joey” was heard on my old Internet radio station, Bluffcosm.com.
