Hello again internet, it’s been awhile. I wanted to provide our fans an update on why you haven’t heard episode 40 yet. We recorded the original episode 40 about two weeks ago, and unfortunately it wasn’t up to the standard that I have as the founder of Lost Level. Lostlevel.com has evolved a great deal since its inception, and we are currently to a point where I want to produce the best quality episodes possible rather than posting something just to hit a dealine. With 39 episodes under our belt we have learned a lot. I feel that we have came a long way in terms of audio quality and content. So our 1st attempt at episode 40 just didn’t feel right. I was going through something personally, and it come through on the cast. I made the tough decision to sit on it, and we rerecorded a brand spanking new episode 40 last night. It was a huge success! It was a great episode, full of good conversation, and a landslide victory for yours truly in our first ever “Verses” segment. Ok, it wasn’t a landslide, but The Amazing Spider-Man isn’t as good as some people (cough) on Lost Level feel it is. Seriously, a smart kid like Peter Parker using Bing? HAH! I woke up early to edit it today, but the curse struck again; the levels are way off. I tried using a different laptop to record last night and that didn’t work the way I planned. So I am trying to fix the levels to make the episode listenable, but I am only seeing minimal positive results. I am currently searching the internet (not with Bing) to see if there is a way I can adjust the levels better.
I want to thank you for your patience, and I hope that my explanation regarding the obvious “curse” of episode 40 sheds some light on the current situation. I have not ruled out the possibility of hiring a priest to rectify the situation. Needless to say we will be back to producing episodes on a timely manner very soon. In the meantime, what have you guys been playing? It’s the summer lull for gaming and we are currently catching up on some back log that I am sure we will be discussing in the near future. Episode 40 will see the light of day! I promise… It just might be our 3rd attempt…
