Common Rotation

hello all, once again. i just wanted to let everyone know about Adam Busch's band Common Rotation. i just listened to a few of their songs on their website commonroation.com (clever, eh?) and theyre actually pretty good. a little...john mayor-esque, which usually is a negative quality (no disrespect to all you j.m. fans), but overall i liked it. you can also buy their CD "the big fear" on itunes, where, coincidentally, you can download CRZ! weird, eh? alright. thanks guys.

Andrew!

hey, guys. (this is nan) i just saw Date Movie with my sister, and guess who's in it?! (the title of the post is a tiny hint)...ANDREW!!!! it was so funny! he was in it for like 5 seconds, but they were the greatest 5 seconds of my life (more or less). so now everyone should see it, not only because of Willow, but now because of Andrew.

"Talking Head Syndrome" much?

hello to all ye supporters of the cause. thank you guys for listening and giving feedback-we really appreciate that. several (actually 2) of you have commented that a lot of the could-be-funny parts were hard to understand due our tendency to talk over each other. Sorry about that. That is actually one of the main problems we, the Not-So-Evil Trio, are trying to work on. That, and not constantly getting off topic. For the next podcast-which will be created after Ellie and Erin return from their CUESTA in Mexico- we will not only cover more topics in the actual episodes, but we will also TRY not to talk over one another. Um, this should be interesting. Thanks again for the support!

CRZ episode 2 is up!

Hey everyone, episode 2 is officially up! I dunno how long it will take for the feed to get updated, or whatever it does, but hopefully everything should work out OK.

Enjoy!

-Erin

EDIT: Sorry...earlier for some reason I was having difficulty with it showing up on the RSS feed. Apparently my XML feed is invalidated, and I was in the process of "fixing" it when it randomly showed up. So...I guess it should work now. ^.^;

everything is new!

Hey everyone. I made a new layout today for the site, as you can see. In addition, the the second episode has been recorded...but I'm going to edit it a little bit before I send it to mis amigos to upload.

Also, if you click here you'll be able to view our brand-new World Domination pics that our dear friend Gracie took for us yesterday.

You won't be hearing from us until March, however, since Ellie and I are headed off to Mexico for two weeks on the 17th. But fear not! We shall return in March and we'll be bigger and better and "badder" than ever.

Thanks for your support!!

coming soon

hey guys! on Friday we took some excellent WorldDomination pictures, which Erin will eventually put up for the world to see. We also just recorded the second episode of Cool, Refreshing Zima, which will also be up on the site soon, as well as on itunes. thanks for all of your support!

Yay! We're so happy!

On behalf of the Not-So-Evil Trio, I want to thank all of you guys who've commented (and even those who've just listened but not commented) on CRZ on this blog or someplace else. The feedback that we have been getting has been so nice, and it really makes us happy that we're doing this project. It also motivates us to bring you bigger and better CRZ goodness.

Speaking of bigger and better CRZ goodness, tomorrow the three of us are yet again crashing at my place, and recording the second episode. Image hosting by Photobucket Although we have not yet purchased a new mic to replace my poor excuse of a webcam, I think we've understood what makes the loud screechy noises, so we'll try and keep that to a minimum.

Thanks yet again for your support!! Image hosting by Photobucket

Ode to the Skateboard

Post written by: Ellie

The long-awaited (or not-so-long-awaited) poem has arrived! Nan and I slaved long and hard to create this epic poem [read: we were sitting in the library and got bored and decided to write a poem in 5 minutes]. So here it is, the fabulous masterpiece itself.

Ode to the Skateboard

Oh glistening wheels,
Spinning thy eternal spinniness
In the dwelling of Angel (theoretically),
Art thou not to return to our fair Xander’s basement?
Where he can practice on thee
So he stops crashing into inanimate objects.
Oh skateboard,
You tickle the heart like a cool and refreshing Zima
Despite the fact that your owner probably is on Zima, considering the way he skateboards….
Anyway,
Thine beauty is actually giving me writer’s block,
So here endeth the poem,
Dear skateboard of mine.

some exciting developments!

Hey everyone! I have some GREAT news~!

cool, refreshing zima is now on iTunes! Image hosting by Photobucket Check it out:




So yes, this means if you have iTunes, just search something along the lines of "Buffy," and we should appear. Then, click subscribe, voila! CRZ, direct.

In addition, I added CRZ to a few podcast directories, such as podcast.net, and some other ones that I currently forget.

Also...about the layout. And IE. For some reason, at least on the school's computers, this layout looks all funky in IE. Which is weird, since I tested it in IE. In Firefox it looks fine, though. Anyways, I'm sorry for that inconvenience, and hopefully by this weekend I'll have a special layout by me for the blog. Unfortunately all three of us are going to be extremely busy these next few weeks because of a show that Nan and I are teching that's this Friday and Saturday, and then the following week has many tests and quizzes due to the upcoming 2 weeks we have of special studies (Ellie and I will be in Mexico, actually). So although I'm really hoping to get that done, at this point I can't guarantee it. But keep your fingers crossed!

Lastly, for our one or maybe two fans, this weekend is beginning to look promising for CRZ Episode 2...so keep checking back for updates. Image hosting by Photobucket

Thanks guys!

How To Download CRZ

At this point there are 2 methods (or so) of downloading cool, refreshing zima.

1. On the post below (where it says "click here"), right click and save as to download. When the download is finished, drag the mp3 into iTunes, or whatever music program you use.

2. To get the mp3 to show as a podcast on iTunes, open iTunes. Click the advanced menu and click "Subscribe to Podcast." Insert the following URL into the box: http://feeds.feedburner.com/CoolRefreshingZimaRss

Then click OK, and the podcast should begin downloading.

Once it becomes available in the iTunes Music store, I'll post how to get to our link there.

Thanks for your support!!

CRZ Episode 1 is up!!

Horay! The first episode is up!!

Okay, I had a few problems with ourmedia.org publisher, and I couldn't get the mp3 uploaded, since it's a rather big file. However, some friends of mine came to the rescue! So, first and foremost I want to thank THX-1800 and Libertie from My Ruined Reputation, for letting me host the very first episode of cool, refreshing zima on their domain thingy. Thank you guys!!!

Secondly, I want to make a little announcement about the sound quality. There are moments where it gets a bit wacked out because of laughing or us getting too loud. It's not SO bad, but obviously, as THX put it, " Version 1.0 of anything always has some problems." We're working on it, though, and hopefully by the next ep this issue should be resolved.

So, here we go! Click here to download the very first episode of cool, refreshing zima! Enjoy!!

UPDATE:
I submitted the RSS feed to iTunes successfully, so hopefully it should appear in the store within the next couple of days. Thanks for your support!!

a few updates, and 29 hours and counting.

Hola again. I have a few updates for you today, and some exciting news~

Firstly, Ellie has been granted access to the posting, and Nan will be soon. Hopefully. So stay tuned for posts from the other members of the Not-So-Evil-Trio. Image hosting by Photobucket

For the blog, we may be posting some blog extras, such as NSET comics, production bloopers, and pictures of us. Also, I'll be making a real layout for the blog this weekend. I've been using premade templates since I really don't like many of blogger's. The first one didn't work in IE so I switched to this one. Anyways, the new layout should be nice, hopefully, and it will be put into effect as soon as it is completed, most likely shortly after the publication of the first episode.

Lastly, there are 29 hours and counting until the production of cool, refreshing zima commences! So get psyched, people! Image hosting by Photobucket
