Blooper: Would Have Met

Posted in Bloopers at 5:00 am by Sam

Maybe the French have it figured out after all. In Episode 52’s Jacques Tati segment, my ever so logical tongue runs afoul of that thing called English.

This is the last of the bloopers. Should I be pleased or mortified that this blooper series has lasted even longer than the podcast itself?

Blooper: Wrong Turn In the Closing

Posted in Bloopers at 5:00 am by Sam

By Episode 50, we had closed the show so many times, we could do it on autopilot. Thing is, autopilot doesn’t always get you where you’re supposed to go.

Blooper: Well Uh

Posted in Bloopers at 5:00 am by Sam

In the ongoing effort to try to minimize the number of segments we start with the word “Well” (and other useless words like “So” and “Anyway”), I came up with the wonderful alternative, “Uh.” This is a bit you didn’t hear in Episode 50’s Fact Or Fiction segment.

Blooper: Unfairly Maligned

Posted in Bloopers at 5:00 am by Sam

In Episode 48’s Top 6 segment, I just…ran out of gas, I think.

Blooper: McBlaine

Posted in Bloopers at 5:00 am by Sam

For some reason, no matter how I tried to phrase it, I couldn’t quite narrate the fact that the badguys were inside the rocket, and our hero McBlaine was hanging on outside.

Then again, maybe my subconscious was trying to suggest that David Lynch should be the film’s director.

This blooper is, of course, from Episode 48’s Pitch segment.

Blooper: Hurt One Hair

Posted in Bloopers at 5:00 am by Sam

The worst kind of blooper is the kind that doesn’t get noticed until editing time. Well, not counting the ones that get noticed for the first time after publication by a listener.

But here’s a situation where I messed up, then recovered with a second mistake that got by us. I didn’t notice until it was time to edit. Sometimes mistakes like this can be covered in editing, and sometimes they can’t. Sometimes a sound or syllable can be removed from an undesired word, and the remaining neutral vowel sound can cover for the missing word. Sometimes a missing word is spoken elsewhere and can be pasted in. Sometimes a word or a line can be recorded anew and spliced in. Other times, no matter what one does along those lines, the vocal inflection is all wrong, and there’s nothing to do but leave the error in.

Here is an example of that sort of problem, from Episode 48’s Pitch segment. The hero of the story is apparently a staunch anti-masochist.
