“It’s a Miserable Life”

Episode 5 of Cave-In went up on YouTube yesterday: 

At the risk of sounding a bit pathetic, I’ve been watching it almost nonstop ever since. I don’t want to say that I’m enamored with the sound of my own voice (it may be true; I just don’t want to say it), but given the choice, I would much rather listen to myself than watch myself. 

My part starts at about 25 minutes in. This was the most enjoyable conversation I’ve had with Weldon so far. At approximately nine minutes, it is the longest conversation I’ve had with him by a wide margin. I kept expecting him to let me go, but he just kept talking to me, and it was great. 

It also felt to me like the most natural conversation that I’ve had with Weldon. I thought about what I wanted to say beforehand, as I always do to avoid the dreaded dead air, but then I had trouble hearing Weldon’s audio via YouTube beforehand (which I figured out later is because the headset that I use to talk to him only has one earphone), so that introduced a spontaneous element that I think loosened things up somewhat.

    • Thanks, Anne. I wanted to ask you how you felt about being compared to Charlie Brown’s teacher. I thought it was pretty funny, but I hope it didn’t hurt your feelings. For what it’s worth, I could understand you better when watching it without any headphones, just my computer speakers. Of course, it may have helped to have had Weldon providing context.

  1. Weldon the I.T. (Irritational Therapist) guy at his wondrous best!
    The way he handles these sessions is a miracle — he makes every call sound great! — and any technical glitches just add spontaneous fun to the mix.
    I think i can feel his character getting more rounded up with every episode… or maybe it’s his effect on my own? =) Well worth waiting for, either way!

    Happy New Year and All the Best in 2020 to everybody!!
