My FIRST PODCAST!

“Just Push Play”

Transcription of the Audio

This is my first Audio-post!

(La La La La) — From Beginning of “Speedy Gonzales”

Ok, thats the beginning of a song that I’ve been listening to a lot recently – although there’s nothing “recent” about the song – it’s a 1962 track by Pat Boone. It’s called Speedy Gonzales and is conceptualized around a very famous Mexican Cartoon character – a mouse by the same name. And this song by Pat Boone (in fact) is inspired by and, in many ways, a tribute to Speedy Gonzalez.

It talks about everything Mexican – From Tortilla, to Enchiladas, Tequila, and Rosita. It’s a very lively song and as I was telling a friend the other day, this song can bring a dead man alive.

So I’m gonna leave you with the Youtube video of the song – in fact it’s a blank video with the music playing in the background – ‘coz I don’t think they had music videos when this song was released.. Enjoy the song!

And, if you’ve heard this audio post – do let me know, drop me a comment – I wish you guys could drop me an “audio” comment as well – I’m sure that’s gonna happen sooner rather than later – but till that time, I’d be happy to “read” your text comments as well.

Here’s wishing ALL you guys a Very Happy Diwali! πŸ™‚

And here’s the Speedy Gonzales track:

  1. Thanks Ruhi..

    Glad you liked it..

    I actually realized I was a little stiff in the podcast… was a tad nervous as to how it would turn out… But am happy you liked it… This can be a lot of fun actually.. πŸ˜€ ..

    My voice appears a lot heavier (deeper!) on the podcast than it actually is… Surprisingly enough, when i Listen to the SAME mp3 file on my PC, it sounds fine.. it sounds a little different here.. Amyway, maybe we can have more of this… πŸ˜› ..

  2. Nice. Nice. Great effort! All these electronic devices do mess up voices because I think they tend to rip away the high frequencies for the purpose of storage efficiency. I have always felt that with the audio I listen to on the phone as compared to in real life. Of course, I would not like to interpolate your frequency too much or I would land up thinking that you sang the mouse track. πŸ˜‰

    One comment though: might be a good idea to post a transcript of your audio post as well since not too many of the search engines can index audio. Of course, only if you are interested.

    I could never remember the name of the mexican mouse which could run fast! Thanks for helping me remember πŸ™‚

    Oh, and you could have called the post ‘Mouse Track’ !! Ha ha.

  3. @ Kpowerinfinity

    Yeah.. but you the it depends on “what” device you’re using.. I loved the sound from my SE Walkman Series Phone.. No distortion… no loss.. Good qualiity… (not advertising for them!) πŸ˜‰

    And point taken.. Thats a good suggestion.. Was planning to post the transcript myself… was too lazy to type it out.. πŸ˜€ .. But I will…. Thanks!

  4. Amit,

    I think you sounded very cool and professional. You should hear me talking over my Voice Mail. 😐 I become so conscious. You should definitely do more of these. I loved the way you modulated your voice. πŸ™‚

    Btw, the song is really cool. πŸ™‚

  5. @ Ruhi

    Thanks a lot..Your words are very encouraging.. I’ve actually been an active debater and enjoyed speaking in public.. I guess that shows.. πŸ™‚

    I can do a LOT more with my voice.. (like crazy funky stuff.. Like I said.. I was a little conscious myself.. Since it was the first time I was doing something like this online..

    And im glad you liked the song.. I usually recommend LOADS of songs to people.. More often that not, they end up liking it.. πŸ™‚

    (Am I sounding too full of myself?.. lolz!)

    πŸ˜€

  6. AMIT HARLALKA!!!

    Nice to hear your voice after a long time…(u never care to call and so do I :P)
    But in any case, was great effort… Isi tarah hum logon ko gyaan dete raho

  7. @ Atul ..

    Thanks mann.. Will call.. I have managed to lose my fone for the second time in a year! .. I wonder how I am so “consistent” .. I am “still in the process of updating my phonebook!” πŸ˜€ ..

  8. @ Poonam,

    Glad you liked it.. Im gonna write a “How-to” on Podcasting pretty soon… Actually it’ll be more like a “How I did it” rather than a “How to”.. coz I need to figure out things myself first.. Maybe readers would comment and give me solutions to some of the problems I faced as well..

    Wait for that one! πŸ™‚

  9. hey cool to see u ahve a podcast…gives me ideas for myself…but common ur voice sounded so serious for a podcast on speedy gonzales..i was expecting more animated voice…lkike speedy gonzales on red bull

  10. @ Pure…

    Ha!… Thanks for doing the honors!

    Actually.. like ive mentioned in the post, the audio file becomes slower and (and my voice soudns deeper!).. so the next time I do an audio post, I will have to speak faster (and on a higher pitch).. so that once the correction happens, “ladies” get to hear the REAL tone… πŸ˜€

  11. Interesting. πŸ™‚

    Loic Lemeur’s company Seesmic would enable video micro-blogging and therefore comments too. QIK might also be useful.

    Considering you are hosted on WP’s real estate in a free service, I wonder what they would think of it if we all started leaving embedded videos in the ‘comments’ space… Just a thought.
