It’s not a podcast, it’s just talking

January 16, 2012

It’s a new year, and Trev and Simon are like two new things, bought as presents and then kept by the givee just beyond the point that they can be taken back, or exchanged, or refunded. Why can’t we all learn from Sparks and their Suburban Homeboy mentality… “props to my peeps, and please keep your receipts…”

What am I on about? Who knows? This is the danger of letting me loose on the Trev and Simon blog when I have failed to maintain my own blog, Mummified Fox, so spectacularly. And whilst Trev is on holiday at the Huffington Post.

If there’s one thing I’ve heard four times so far this year it’s; “when are the two of you going to do another podcast?” It’s the most commonly asked question after “Do you still swing your pants?” and “Weren’t you that guy who once did something somewhere? With that other guy? The tall one.” And they’re the most commonly asked questions after “Do you do duvets?”, and that’s the most commonly asked question after “What do you do now?” and that’s the most commonly asked question after “How much for this?” as a too thin or too fat lad waves a bag of boilies in my face.

I now know no one knows what I’m on about, and Trev may take me to task (like a still angry Elvis Costello) for writing a load of old nonsense when all I said I would do was put up this little clip for your pleasure.

Here it is. It’s just us, talking nonsense for a few minutes in the bar at the BFI. We were there for a meeting with Alison Norrington from storycentralDIGITAL. We talked transmedia and then we talked Oobidoo. It’s good to get out of the house.

Some bits from Podcast No.13

November 25, 2010

Ok, so Podcast No.13 isn’t ready yet but it soon will be. Tomorrow hopefully. Not that it’s any big whoop, just two old guys talking, but here’s a little taster. I had to prop the camera on Andrea’s settee so it’s not the most exciting of films, but hey, what do you expect for nothing? A rubber biscuit?

I don’t get the rubber biscuit thing. I just remember it from The Blues Brothers. I know it bounces back.

Here’s four minutes of badly edited lowlights.

 


Trev and Simon podcast no.12… a little bit of video

October 26, 2010

Doh! this didn’t work out as planned! I’d edited the end bit where Andrea hides away and then makes a rude gesture. But something’s gone wrong and it’s edited itself out. Oh well… it’s just a bit of rubish. Think of it as an experiment. maybe next time we’ll film something proper. Maybe a play. Maybe we’ll script the story of when Mr Lynch called me (Simon) into his office to find out if I was a Nazi.And maybe Trev can voice me over as he does in the podcast. Who knows? Not me. Here’s some footage of us in a basement.


Trev and Simon Podcast No. 12

October 25, 2010

Well, that’s been a bit of a wait hasn’t it? Sorry. I’d love to say something like “good things come to those who wait” but it’s the same old nonsense. We hope you enjoy it. There is swearing, rudery, singing and impressions and accents. That’s the official warning. As our producer, Andrea, said “This is your filthiest podcast ever.”

Trev and Simon Podcast No.9

November 13, 2009

Podcast-title-9

I’ve been driven mad getting this post up. It’s taken yesterday afternoon and all of today. I’ve lost posts, I’ve uploaded and downloaded. Something in the computer has been reformatting everything. And then I realise. it’s Friday 13th. I suppose I’m luck to be alive. No more fuss and messing about. Here it is:

You can listen to/download it here- Trev and Simon Podcast no. 9

Just click on the link above to listen to it. Or to download the podcast: On a PC, right-click on the link, then select ‘Save Link As’ and download it to the selected location on your computer. On a Mac, hold down Ctrl and click the link, then select ‘Save Link As’ and download it to the selected location

And here’s what’s on it:

  1. Recording from the banks of the Thames
  2. Sweets
  3. **Warning! A technical hitch at 03:38**
  4. Remembrance Day
  5. Morrissey and The Specials
  6. Simon’s casting
  7. “Serenity now!”
  8. Simon’s mood
  9. Future podcasts
  10. Listeners’ questions
  11. Trev’s attire
  12. Bruce Forsyth
  13. Are Trev and Simon going back on tour?
  14. How Trev and Simon used to write
  15. More listeners’ questions
  16. Christmas presents
  17. Simon sings!

  19. Moustaches

And, after a bit of a test, that seems to work. Sorry for starting off the post grumpy, but when computer’s go bad I have no idea.

And I made a mistake in the noonpod. I say my choir’s concert is on the 14th December. It’s not! It’s the 7th. If any of you can come along, or want to come along, please choose the correct Monday. Sorry about that error. I blame Stumpy. Serenity Now!

Oh, and to those of you who asked questions, thank you. if we haven’t answered yours it may be because we answere it in Podcast 10… recorded about half an hour after this one, this time inside the Royal Festival Hall. We’ll put that one up next week. And if we still haven’t answered your question… sorry. Maybe it was rubbish. Or maybe we’re just rude. Or we lost it. Or we’re rubbish. Or all of these things.

Yes, all of these things.

We met a photographer in the Royal Festival Hall. he came up, said hello, and took a couple of pics. And he’s kindly sent them on. Cheers Richard.
