Viral Play S02 – Mess Hall 2

Posted in Podcasts with tags , , , , , , , on February 18, 2011 by Carlos Macias

In a bit of a call back to Episode 6 of Mess Hall, we follow up with Eddie Rodriguez as he reminisces about his moment of seclusion (aka “moving out”) in a segment we dubbed “Solo Living Tips.”

Listen in to hear about how to get free cable, electricity and other amenities if you ever find yourself in similar financial straits. Carlos, Louie, and Jrock also talk a bit about Coachella, hands-on with Nintendo’s upcoming 3DS, the evolution of music/genre mashing, open-world games with consequences (i.e. Mass Effect 2, Fallout 3), the upcoming LA Noire, and Latin America encouraging the globalization of game development.

All in this week’s episode of Mess Hall. Sit back, relax and listen in as we use any excuse — my little brother’s birthday — to party.

Viral Play, Episode 9 – VCR Monster Edition

Posted in Podcasts with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on January 4, 2011 by Carlos Macias

On our second show back from a quick hiatus (yes, as in a new Mess Hall’s been out on iTunes for a minute now) we do it up big and bring in the full cast of VCR Monster. Jordan Kennedy and Andrew Serrato help us ring in the new year with talk of resolutions, defining their sound, feedback hate, Jordan’s custom-made guitar/MIDI hybrid “DG20,” secret first shows, and Moms as an EP cover.

But, of course, we couldn’t let a Jordan interview go without getting him to open up about his stylin’ hairdo and how that plays into his overall philosophy on VCR Monster personality versus the in-the-band vibe as a member of Media.

Oh, and stay tuned after the interview to hear rapping sensation J. Andrews freestyle over an iPhone synthesized, freshly-made beat by VCR Monster. Sit back, relax, and listen in on our latest historical document…

Viral Play – Mess Hall Ep. 6

Posted in Podcasts with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 29, 2010 by Carlos Macias

School season, child rearing, headbutting, missed interviews. All a part of what’s been happening with Viral Play lately.

No worries, though. The show must go on, and it will. Only maybe not as timely as before — because we’ve always been timely, ‘members?

Anyway, to tide you guys over until a proper Viral Play we bring you a special episode of “Mess Hall.” Carlos and the gang hid from the rain at “Jimmy and Eddie’s Apartment” (patent pending) to talk about the moving-away-from-home experience, the Conan/Leno situation, NBC hate, goals of the upcoming “Talk Show,” Jimmy’s new nickname, and end it with talk of athletes’ extracurricular activities (think: Tiger Woods).

Even Hitler comes up! Truly a mess hall episode not to be missed.

Viral Play – Mess Hall Ep. 5

After some extensive, extensive editing here’s Mess Hall’s new year episode. Don’t worry, even after cuts most of the foolishness still remained for you to frown upon. All our friends came out including last week’s guest, Jeramy Lowe, Ariel and Adrian Otero, Carlos Macias, Louie Recinos, “Jrock,” Elias Valenzuela, and plenty more.

Mainly, we tried talking about Adrian’s recent trip to England but the conversation quickly scattered into “disorganized chaos” covering Bioshock-esque underwater tunnels, Jamaican lager, a couple of local stories, missing gloves, the definition of a rotation, and Eddie’s Capitalism minute.

Oh, noooo! Just when we get the podcast up and running on the iTunes, we stumble on network/bandwidth/nonsense issues. Unfortunately, for now, we’ll have to go back to just streaming and downloading through the ever-reliable DivShare. Thanks for those of you who’ve already subscribed and we’re looking for ways to keep you updated.

This week on the show Carlos and Louie welcome *ahem* Senior Airman, Communications, Cable, and Antenna Maintenance Journeyman Jeramy Lowe. He tells us about his misadventures while on leave, comparisons between Air Force life and the media’s depiction of it, and we finish it up with his motivation to enlist. Sit back, relax, and listen in on our latest historical document…
