there were few things i "liked" about this podcast...

1) gordons views on what a waste it is/was.

2) actually really the only redeeming thing....i was incredibly surprised at veronicas vocal abilities.

the girls got chops! and sounds good!

in the future when i am relistening to podcast for information review i will have edited this podcast down to just veronicas song, her voice soothed the savage in me that was raging from the techno-waste of time that the rest of the podcast was/IS!

sorry i do listen to be entertained but primarilly for tech info, not gaming or kids nite out. someone should have reviewed this kareoke idea and nixed it. but even good managers make some bad decisions.

I got a few good laughs from the Podcast and It showed alot of creativity that I liked very much.   Life not perfect and we have to take what we can get. For the people that did not, I 'd like too see you do better  and then see how hard it is putting on a show.  The podcast to me is a bonus to a great magizine and a fun time for the Maximum PC staff. Keep it real people.  WTF, over!! LOL

My Minute by Minute reaction listening to the podcast 
0:00-2:40 - Waiting for something to happen
2:41 - Confused and wondering if I'm listening to the correct podcast.
5:46 - WTF ?? You guys brought Eminem as a guest star ?
5:47 - Disappointed because its not Eminem but still enjoying the music.
9:11 - Nodding in agreement with Gordon - WTF was that ???
10:03 - Laughing uncontrollably while screaming in PAIN.
13:12 - In agreement with Gordon (again!) I really cant believe you guys spent all this time to fucking do that.
13:26 - Laughing out Loud.
17:15 - Started to Cry....and laugh at the same time. Veronica has an Angelic voice
21:54 - Sad cause the pod cast is over.
 
Good Job guys, that was the best 21 minutes and 54 seconds of my life, seconds only to when my first child was born (if I had any).

Episode 100 of the NoBSPodcast was actually Episode 2 of the YesBSPodcast. The first being the Teenie boppers show.

fuser197

Worse than even the Youth of America episode, OMFG.  People that actually listened to the whole and actually liked it are masochists, and you guys are sadists for creating this episode in the first place.

avatar

knexkid

Little harsh, but I would agree that it actually might be worse than the Youth of America edition....oh well.  I look forward to next weeks!

that's good stuff guys!!!!!  the cameo at the end is awesome.  kudos all around, i say!

Not too bad for episode 99b.  Cant wait to see what you guys do for number 100.

 

That's sarcasm BTW.

lancethepants

Initially I was disappointed seeing that it was only 21 min, but I thought it was great.  I listened to it at work, but I can't wait to get home and listen to it again without all the noise of the workplace, just cracked me up.

kkern

That is an awesome crack!  I also enjoyed the reference to that other Will Smith guy.  Still chuckling to myself.

For the 100th episode, that was totally unexpected...and very enjoyable!  A+

According to the outtakes, it sounds like a script actually exists.  Will that be given away via Twitter sometime soon?

Tekzel

I agree, hell even if I didn't enjoy the entire podcast (which I did, even the really, really bad Eye of the Tiger) Veronica's song would be entirely worth listening to the whole podcast in itself.

avatar

jcollins

I thought it was an amusing podcast for a one off (it's not something that should be done often though).  You guys sing better than I expected out of geeks.  :)  I know I couldn't do it without being really horrible.  I imagine it was a lot of work, and I hope you had fun doing it.  Veronica did steal the show on you guys though.

avatar

jwe1064

Bravo! I especially liked the hate mail song at the end

So, I am ready to listen to the podcast and I notice the title is the 100th episode. COOL!  Then I see the length is only 20 minutes or so.  FAIL!  You put us off and hyped up how cool the 100th would be for a 20! minute episode?!?!  FAIL!!!

Then, I actually listen to it.  Absolutely f-ing awesome.  Best "anniversary" episode of any podcast I've heard.  You guys hit it out of the park.

However, I feel compelled to warn you that you will be hearing from my lawyer.  You see, I was getting my lunch together when I started listening.  I was just starting to sit down and eat as the podcast was "ending".  Then, Veronica proceeds to start the Portal parody in which I litterly started to laugh out loud.  This then caused me to start choking on the food in my mouth at the time.  The Heimlich maneuver was performed but permanent damage may have occurred.  (all true except for the first and last sentence in this paragraph)

This was absolutely worth the wait.  Keep up the great work and I look forward to the next 100.

I wouyld just like to say I think the podcast was excellent. Who cares if it was not the same as all the other 99 podcasts. Keep up the great work and to all the haters out there go listen to the rant remix podcast and I'm sure you will feel better.

I'm going to have to agree with Gordon's "What the fuck was that?" I see he had the good sense not to participate.

April 1st was two weeks ago, guys, and this would have been perfectly acceptable on that day and that day only, as a bonus.

The last thing I need at 6:30 in the morning during the drive to work is two pasty white nerds trying to sing or (shudder) RAP

This plan should have ended when you guys realized that no one there has any vocal talent whatsoever. And as most karaoke sessions tend to go, it takes a girl to school you all in the singing ability department.

and almost as enjoyable.

i wrote this while relistening to the podcast . it is the day after now iv'e had a chance to sleep process my thoughts relisten to the podcast think happy thoughts take a dump,vomit, have some hypnotherapy done to try to erase all the bad memories frome the podcast  so all that was belonging to yesterday is now out of me . with all of that said im still disappointed . im not as mad as yesterday but all is good because at the end of the podcast will said we will be back next week with the real show . we can only hope they dont do anymore parody shows, and with will stating that maybe this show was a farse for the real 100th show. i am sorry about my comments of the last few weeks but i am a involved , passionate listener of the podcast and reader of the magazine so i cant stay mad at you guys because you were just having fun . we alll need that now and then .

 

still a listener and subscriber to all that is maximum pc . keep up the good work. 

 

 still think you guys should do a episode where your all drunk and call it    "no bs podcast #101 the blame it on the achahol edition" i would love to here gordon drunk and do his rant. it would be classic        LOL!!!!!

I'm at a loss of words.  Well, not really, that was just so bad I kind of just want to forget it.  I like your podcasts for 2 reasons: one, because they're informative, and two, because they're funny.  This was neither.  You can't really debate that there WAS any useful information in here, but I could have accepted that if there were some humor in place of the information, but there wasn't any humor either!  I'm no professional music critic, but in my opinion all of the people who sang in this episode were completely tone deaf (with the exception of Veronica Belmont, but she wasn't exactly "Cher" either).  The rap didn't rhyme or have any rhythm in it either.  I actually listened to the whole thing waiting for the songs to either get better or quit the terrible musical angle and let Gordon rant or something.  That was so horrible that I'm actually deleting it from my 'Podcasts' folder.  This is like Terminator 3 to Terminator 1 & 2.

I'd save it, if only for the Still Alive parody...

avatar

el1tevandal

Wow you guys really shouldn't sing. As in should not sing at all. Though it was a nice change of pace, and a good idea for someone who can sing, and it did make me laugh... mostly at your inability to sing.

 The end song though with Veronica Belmont was amazing though.

avatar

Keith E. Whisman

You actually made it to the end of the podcast without turning the thing off after a few minutes?

I can sum up this podcast in two words:

 

Epic Fail

 

Have you forgotten what magazine your writing for? because it sure as hell seems like it, you advertise 'Maximum PC, Minimum BS', ok well I think you all got it backwards, I mean comon it's the hundreth podcast so you decided to celebrate it by singing? Who the fuck came up with that idea? I mean it was bad enough that it was only 21 minutes long, but it was 21 minutes of pure bullshit, I mean it got to be so bad that I kept clicking forward on my zune to see when the actual podcast would start. I really honestly think that this was the worst max PC podcast I have ever heard, and I am an avid listener, I think even the episode number 97 (dubbed Failcast by one of you) was better. No, I lied, it wasn't just better, it fucking walked up with a shotgun shot episode 100 in the face and kicked it in the balls, then it proceded to teabag its dead body. As a final note I can honestly say that I am still undergoing therapy and treatment for my loss of hearing due to this podcast. The doctors told me that the only thing that saved me was the fact that it was only encoded at 128k, any higher they said and I most likely would be comotose.

ok, rant over...

in other words, please, we listen to the podcast to hear about the world geekdom, no off key singing. 

avatar

Keith E. Whisman

Um... What can I say? Um... This reminds me of that episode of South Park where George Lucas and Steven Spielberg were raping Indiana Jones repeatedly thoughout the show. Only that show was fun to watch and this wasn't.

It did give me an idea though and I hope you guys can do it. A musical episode. The No BS Podcast Musical. You guys do a normal podcast but instead of speaking you have to sing everything. Well not everything but it would be good. Or even the NoBS Opera version. You guys will have to put white powder in your hair.

But man. I hope not to sound like a broken record but I'm going to have to share the same feelings on this podcast as will 99% of the other listeners that posted befor me.

You know I love you guys but this is.. It's just..... God I can't stop crying. It's like there has been a death in my family. I witnessed the rape of the NoBS podcast. 

avatar

knexkid

I'm sorry guys, but woof.  That's all I really have to say.  Please stick with the normal podcast.  I did like the last song about how terrible the podcast was....it was spot on.

avatar

Moggraider

I loved it. It's nice to have a change of pace. Great job. Here's to 100 more.

Now I have to kill myself to get the singing out of my head.  Legendary.

 

Also, the levels of nerd rage is pretty funny.

I only wish that the podcast was longer. Really. I enjoyed it. But I'm at work crying because I'm laughing so hard and my coworkers were looking at me like I was insane. My favorite was the Newegg rep / customer skit. Yes I was a little disappointed but I do realize that the podcast is free and I do appreciate your efforts to continue to deliver one weekly (or so). As long as I have an iPod and there are podcasts, I will d/l and listen to them.

is my internet messed up or is it REALLY 21 minutes long? i waited for the las two months for this, hoping for a 2hour awesome show, and all we get is 20 min? while i was waiting for episode 100, i listestened to other podcasts like BuzzOutLoud and TWIT and when i listestened to 99A  it was a real dissapointment. So is this. Please, can you make the new ones more like the old ones? or i'm probobly gonna stop listening from now on.

That's Right. YOU GOT PoWNeD! (not)

WTF was that? Can you say "epic fail"? The only saving grace for this ep. was Veronica Belmont's song at the end, which summed up nicely exactly how I felt after listening to the previous 15-ish minutes of this trainwreck (BTW, what's the procedure to get a refund on the time wasted on that?)

Never, and I mean never, attempt to sing again.

Don't Listen to the Haters,  What you did was funny:) Just don't do this on a normal show, only do these kind of episodes on special occasions only.  Other than that I thought the songs were hilarious.

avatar

comptech08

well although this podcast is funny, i really don't listen to podcasts that much.  But i have listened to enough to tell that the quality is declining.  Its the same with the site.  The news is not like it use to be, thus one reason why i cancelled my mag subscription.  They need to get this back in to gear like it use to be a few years ago, or i prolly will not be coming back.
