Thrilling CARS Audio Extravaganza!

Shum Stra iz in our interwebs recordin’ our Help Desks and has the audio of the first question in yesterday’s Help Desk. Why go to all the trouble of reading it when you can just give it a listen (936k MP3)?

Why don’t we do this all the time? Because we hate you. And we suck.

It’s a rather unfortunate combination.

  1. John,
    Your writings are more than enough for the unworthy, like us.

    The other problem is that the police might recognise the ‘heavy breathing’ voice as well as the ‘threatening violence’ and ‘death’ calls.

  2. I almost felt like dancing for a sec there.

    And I disagree with Nxxx on this one. CARS needs to move into video podcasts, with comments allowing imbedded images, sounds, and olfactory and kinesthetic touches.

    All you need is bandwidth, banddepth, and bandbreadth. And a server farm.


  3. The audio is very fine, but since we’re talking about a dance, I was hoping for some sort of Labanotation or something.

    On the other hand, I can’t read Labanotation, or, really any kind of dance notation, so don’t go to a lot of trouble on my account.

  4. That would require quite a lot of funding, Ace. There’s very little profit in farming servers, especially trying to compete with today’s industrial agriculture. What happened to good old fashioned server husbandry?

    The costs mount fast: a soundboard, lighting, makeup artists… that’s right: makeup artists. The Entity may have evolved beyond the need for a “meaty sack” body, but that doesn’t mean it takes no pride in its appearance. Quantum makeup’s expensive, even the cheap Revlon stuff.

  5. Hey ! Doesn’t it sound like Zappa ?
    And, er…in fact CARS doen’t need real actors, as there’s lot’s of pretty voices in every mac !
    Oh, Vicki…
    and, oooooooh


  6. Thank you, Streetrabbit.

    (hint: it’s a the-site-is-not-live-yet page. Which makes the linkety somewhat pointless.)

  7. I’d always assumed it was pronounce Vorjak, like the composer. Guess I was wrong…. 🙂

  8. “Shum Stra iz in our interwebs recordin’ our Help Desks …”

    Non-native-speaker here: What does this actually MEAN? (Not that I expect it to be worth the bother.)

  9. ZunePhone Getting Closer, Closer, Closer, ….
    ZunePhone, ZunePhone, ZunePhone, ZunePhone, ……..
    That’s all I seem to hear from everybody where ever I go! As I told you people back in July, “ZunePhone is getting closer!” It’s closer than it was back then by several months.
    I can confirm that among the massive feature list of the “ZuP” (as I like to call it) will be:

    4g Network capability
    FM Radio
    Lo-res GPS
    Terra-Server DirectAccess
    WhisperPhone Technology
    Volume Control
    SilverLight Animation
    IE 8 (Light Edition)
    IndirectBuy Technology

    The list goes on and on and on …….
    That’s why it’s taking us so long, we are doing this the Microsoft way! RIGHT!
    Sure Apple sent over their little snitches and sneak-thieves and stole our ZuP Alpha Mock ups (which they used to make the iPhone), but we will let that slide.

    Get the “Real Thing!” Zup! Coming closer, closer, closer, closer, clo………..
