View Full Version : What's delaying FCTV?

Hello FCTV fans.

We figured some of you might wonder from time to time why FCTV takes so long to make. To help answer this question we will try to post things here to let you know "What's holding-up FCTV now?!?"

For instance, this week we could talk about how it is a holiday weekend, or that it is our anniversary, or that our little slice of Tatooine looks more like Kamino right now. We have had more rain in the last week than all year. Our yard is now more lake than lawn. And where we live, rain and power don't get along. When you get rain, you lose power. Making FCTV is like a hover board on water - it doesn't work without pow-wer.

But, that is NOT what we are going to say now. What we ARE going to say now is that we wasted time on a different project. All this talk of Trek vs Wars got our little Jawa minds wondering, "How can we rip them both off at once?" This is what we came up with.

Thank you.

If you download the pic (so it is not in a frame) you can see the number written under the bars. It's nothing that funny really, just pi (3.14) out to about 8 digits then 001 or what ever followed by the parity checks and what not that are part of that bar code standard. Oh and I just checked, oops, I missed a number in pi.

Ok, this time we can't work on THIS week's FCTV because of an OLD FCTV we were supposed to be done with.

A new chapter has been open for FCTV 050109 - Apocalypse Sow. On that show, Pete clearly gives us a sign to watch for - Kyle Newman with Ben Quadinaros. Well on THIS week's show Kyle gives us the conditions under which he would buy a Quadinaros figure - the right packaging.

And so we give you this:

In case you missed it in the other thread, this was the hold up today:

(To the tune of Gilligan's Island)

Just sit right back and you'll hear the tale
Of the extra long force-cast
It started as a tiny show
But soon became more vast

The hosts were mighty Star Wars fans
And I'm sure that we all know
Five call in guests on skype that day
Made a four hour show, a four hour show

The hours started dragging on
But the guests were just so great
If not for the fun of the playful hosts
The show wouldn't run so late, the show wouldn't run so late

Now the show can be found on the site of this awesome fan-based page
With Jimmy Mac
And Jason too,
That Clone Wars guy and his leash
The mp3 player dude
There's Kyle's spot and Mr. Macht
Here on the Force-Cast show

So this is the tale of the show that went
On for a long, long time
Take this all with a pinch of salt,
Tequila and a lime

Now Jimmy Mac and Jason too
Will do their very best
To make the listeners comfortable
Through this grueling test

Cell phones, PC's, and web cams
They've got technology
Not Robinson Crusoe
They're Techie as can be

So join us here each week my friends
You're sure to feel alive
A Star Wars fix and so much more
Here on the Force-Cast Live

What is this? People are now trying to get me to go after Eric? You mean you all actually want to be subjected to bad puns and even worse poetry? Trust me I have a big crushing rant coming and I'm saving it for when he says something worthy of comment. I mean if I have a comeback for every snide remark my comebacks will become less special. *Cue sentimental music* You see I don't do this for me, I do it for all of you. I think you all deserve to have my best not a halfhearted attempt. You see when Sheldon, Shazbazzar, Mandy, and even you Kitfistofan, come onto the forum and see that I have responded to an Eric insult you want to walk away knowing that he was totally, completely, with out a single doubt crushed. I do it because I care. You all deserve nothing but my very best. And I pledge to you all today that next time I destroy Eric, it will be for all of you. I thank you for this time and I want you all to have a great day. *End Music*

One of reasons we can't get to an FCTV this week, is that yesterday was Luke's 1st birthday! There is a big party this coming Saturday (Theme: Star Wars Ep. 1).

Yeah, what with the dreaded real life and the holidays, and all, and some weeks there is no FC for the FCTV to be about, it seems that there is no longer an FCTV every week. To help you know when to keep your eyes peeled, and when to just give up for the week, we will try to post a "coming soon" notice when we are making one. ...just for the time being, to help us all though this crises.

"The Little Church That Couldn't"

Long, long ago and far, far away
An adventure got started that continues today

It started with brothers devoted to good
They started a church as they thought they should

They called themselves Jedi and tried very hard
To master lightsabers in their backyard

But this is the start of when it all fails
For they weren't the only force users in Wales

Just as the dark always follows the light
Wherever there's Jedi there's Sith Lords to fight

From here "The Tale of Darth Binbag" picks up the story
Up to the point where he's carted off in a lorie

For the brothers, things don't end there
More was in store for this Jedi pair

They were banished from shops due to hooded robe
They were hassled by yobs and xenophobes

The press liked to follow them wherever they'd go
Like it or not they were the new freak show

One of the brothers had had quite enough
He'd move out of town soon as he packed all his stuff

That cut the church members in half
Leaving too few people to follow the path

Without a flock for the shepherd to tend
The great Jedi church has come to its end

But try not to cry over their sad Jedi fates
'Cause always in motion the future awaits

And always their memory we'll keep in our hearts
Of unthinkable stories and questionable smarts
