HikerJamz launches new show: After-Cache

jamzOur old friend, and “guest blogger” to this blog, HikerJamz has launched a second weekly show! That would be After-Cache, which is a pre-recorded show, and generally released on Sundays, on Spreaker.com. The first show was released on  Sunday, June 21st, and the 2nd show is up on the website right now! Best to go right to the source, correct? Here is an explanation of the show, and how it works, quoted  from HikerJamz himself:

“Hikerjamz After-Cache Radio Show is a new podcast show that I have just released 6/22/14 on Spreaker.com. Different than Blog talk radio show, this one will not have an option for live callers. The show is all pre-recorded from my Audacity program and uploaded to the studio on Spreaker.com and will run for 45 minutes every Sunday around noon, and will be available to listen soon after. The first episode explains how it works. You can e-mail me at [email protected] and tell your story or adventure of your favorite caching experience of the week or weekend, and I will read it on the air; or you can go to speakpipe.com/hikerjamz and record a voice message to be played on the air. There is only a 90 second recording time so if you need more time, just send what you have and record again to continue your story. I need to have the e-mail or recording by 10 pm. Friday night eastern (New York) time so I can have it ready to go on Sunday. If you miss the time, it will go on the next weeks show. This is a family friendly radio show so let your children participate also. They enjoy geocaching, so I want to include them in this as well and I’m sure they would have some exciting adventures to share! So check it out by listening to my first episode here www.spreaker.com/user/hikerjamz and join in on the fun! My Blog Talk Radio Show will still continue, but I dropped it down to 45 minutes instead of 1 hour.”

So please do check this show out! You can contribute via a “voicemail”, or via email. The OCNA blogger himself made a contribution via email to episode 2 (near the end). And remember, the “original” HikerJamz show is not going anywhere, it has just been cut down to 45 minutes from an hour. And of course you can check out the archived episodes of that show right here on this blog, as always.

Treasure the film update

indiegogo-banner

One of the most viewed posts on this blog the last several months was our original interview with Chris Williamson, writer and director of Treasure, a feature length micro budget film he is making to fulfill the requirements of his MFA in Film from the University of Central Florida. We interviewed him in mid March, while his Indiegogo crowd funding campaign was in full swing. That campaign has long since ended, but we here at the blog signed up for the Treasure Mailing list, and had received a few updates on progress on the project via email. The latest update was sent on Father’s Day, June 15th, 2014, so we figured we’d contact Chris for a follow up interview, to see how things are coming along.

Monster Coins winner announced!

random


We have a winner of 300 Monster Coins from MonsterCache! The drawing was at 7:00 PM Eastern Standard Time on Sunday, June 22nd, and the winner responded in about 24 hours (they’re currently traveling). That would be Tim AKA ATMA, a Monster Cache player from Texas. As always, our contest winners are chosen from the website random.org. We did not make a video this time either, although we are going to do that one of these days. Perhaps we’ll enlist the help of Geocaching Vloggers The Geocaching Doc, or The Amber Geocacher for some help in video production. No one wants to see a basic video with Mr.Yuck talking in his nasally voice. 🙂 So we’d like to thank Eric from Monster Cache for the interview, and donating the prize! If you haven’t yet, try Monster cache. Did we mention you can earn badges? All Geoclocation game players love badges! Your blogger currently has 6 of them, and has captured exactly 50 Monsters, and is at level 5. Check it out, we think you’ll like it.

Geocaching, with The Doc on the side

doclogo


A funny thing happened, on or before June 12th, 2014, when we went to post a Geocaching Doc video on this blog. We found we could no longer copy and paste a description of a YouTube video! We were using Firefox, so no problem, lets try Chrome. Nope, didn’t work there either. Internet Explorer, same thing. We’re sure Google has their reasons, but it is a fact you can no longer copy and paste the description, or “about” a certain video, as they call it, on YouTube.

So not to be deterred, and inspired by another Geocaching blog, which posts the latest video of another Geocaching Vlogger to their blog, we threw The Geocaching Doc’s latest video up on the sidebar of this blog via a WordPress Widget. Works like a charm, and when his latest video came out on his RSS feed, it updated to the newest one, replacing the previous one, just fine.

So we’re moving the Geocaching Doc to the side! The sidebar, that is, on the right hand side of this blog. Whenever he posts a new video to YouTube, it will immediately show up on the sidebar of this blog, via an RSS feed. Underneath the little thumbnail image on the sidebar, will be the Title of the video. When you click on said thumbnail image, the video will open in a large lightbox window  in the middle of this webpage. In other words, the whole webpage will be dimmed out, and you will see the video full sized in the middle of your screen.

We’re sure just about everyone has seen the so called “lightbox technique” all over the internet, and many just didn’t know what it was called. Now you know, and we’ll even give you the link to the wikipedia page on the subject, for further reading! We have discussed moving to the side with The Doc, and he’s OK with it. We too are OK with it, and feel it might even help this blog to load faster! A win-win all the way around. So you can, as you have for almost a year, see the latest from The Geocaching Doc right here on this blog!
