♥ it’s time to spread your podcast pallet ♥

And the pallet continues! Here we are again with the third installment to Broaden Your Podcast Pallet, the one and only 2015 rendition. Before the holiday season ends and 2016 begins, be sure to take time out of your day to appreciate the newest additions to the audio drama community.

Are you searching for a hero? Wanna get away from reality? Someone to talk to? Perhaps you need to have a double take on that skeleton in your closet?

Looking for something fresh to please that sudden thirst for audio storytelling? Look no further as PodCake has six more podcasts you’ll certainly love.

1. Audio Diary of a Superhero

In the fact of a smear campaign by the International Department of Superhuman Oversight, Adria Collins releases her audio journal in a bimonthly podcast.

The life of a superhero seems glamorous at first glance, but Laura Henderson’s Audio Diary of a Superhero begs to differ. It’s only occurred to me now that no podcast I’ve come across has dealt with superheroes and if this is the first, let it certainly be an inspiration to your inner comic book nerd.

Told with excellent imagery and some gracious swearing, this show provides an interesting deconstruction of superhuman ability paired with the pain of disability. Juggling the two can’t be easy but Adria Collin’s quest to beat the odds is inspiring, funny, and…certainly super.

2. The Elysium Project

The Elysium Project follows those who are pulled into the world of a powerful formula that allows its subject to manipulate the world around them based on thought and desire.

And thus sci-fi rears its mechanical head once more. But this time, we have something a little different than your usual aliens and space travel. Try to consider the above synopsis to be a question to ask yourself: How badly do you desire control?

Manipulating reality sounds like a lot of fun until you learn that perhaps having everything you wanted from simple thought alone may not be all it’s cracked up to be. Fast, smart, and gripping from the start, creator Natalie Van Sistine delivers The Elysium Project on a silver platter and begs you hang on for dear life.

3. The Bunker

The Bunker is a breakfast radio show for the post-apocalypse generation. Set in the year 2414, the series chronicles the misadventures of David, Dave, and Tom as they struggle to a one hour radio programme from their underground bunker.

The apocalypse can’t be all bad, right? As long as we have radio, we can preserve the art of entertainment and communication and if we wish really hard, things might just turn up …living. What more could you ask for when the air is barely breathable and basic resources are a rarity to a dying population?

Listen to The Bunker, and suddenly the bleakness of a destroyed earth doesn’t seem some glum anymore. In this British comedy, we listen in on the last radio station after the end of the world for short stories, drama, and a warm helping of tea and biscuits.

4. King Falls AM

King Falls AM centers on a lonely little mountain town’s late-night AM talk radio show and its paranormal, peculiar happenings and inhabitants.

Moving to a new town for a new job can be stressful, especially when this new town may not be the modest little grove of trees and sunny faces you previously expected.

Slip into something comfortable and listen in on King Falls AM, your favorite talk show about a mountain town that is a lot more bizarre than it seems. This is your go-to podcast for the paranormal and a good laugh about a kooky community and the banter of our two hosts as they tackle the strange whereabouts of King Falls.

5. The Black Tapes

The Black Tapes is a weekly podcast from the creators of Pacific Northwest Stories, and is hosted by Alex Regan. The Black tapes Podcast is a serialized docudrama about one journalist’s search for the truth, her subject’s mysterious past, and the literal and figurative ghosts that haunt them both. Do you believe?

Do you believe in ghosts? This is likely a question you’ve been asked before and The Black Tapes runs with it in this brilliant documentary about the hidden horrors of the world.

This is a show that truly makes you question the events around you. How much of it is based on a plain of existence you are comfortable with? Are you willing to question what may happen after death? What is and what isn’t human? Then The Black Tapes is for you.

6. Limetown

Ten years ago, over three hundred men, women, and children disappeared from a small town in Tennessee, never to be heard from again. In this seven-part podcast, American Public Radio host Lisa Haddock asks the question once more, “What happened to the people of Limetown?

Oh my, I think I just felt a breeze! There’s a chill running up my spine, I just know it. It might be because I’m writing this next to an open window during a dark, rainy October night or because something as thrilling and creepy as Limetown exists and is here to stay.

Much like The Black Tapes, Limetown knows the most horrifying things are the one’s that hit closest to home. What’s more creepy and mysterious than a deserted town? Lisa Haddock is on the case and you should take part in her journey.

now, get to listening.

Marco Diaz Audio Log
Isolated Frequencies
Marco Diaz Audio Log

Marco records another entry in his ongoing audio diary log.

This is another idea I had help with putting together with @necrosishead. This is the first installment of “Marco’s audio log” (name is in progress, will be better later), it’s pretty much an AU of good ol’ Marco having an ongoing recording of events and such from his perspective. Who knows what kind of stuff we’ll see hear.

Here’s the dialogue: This is Marco making another entry in the log…. never really know how to start these… It’s been business as usual, well, as usual as it’s been since Star’s showed up, ha-ha, never a dull moment. Been practicing karate a lot more, considering the number of times Ludo’s been trying to get the wand recently, now I can train harder knowing I’ll be fighting alongside Star. Man! That girl can fight! So I have to stay strong if I want to keep up with her. I also have to be careful what I say around her. Like when I told her that the fortune cookie’s fortunes were true. Now THAT, was a mistake. It was a bit silly at first, even a little adorable, but booooy did that spiral out quickly. Especially when that resulted in me having to fight Ludo’s minion on my own for a bit. Maybe I should train with the possibility of Star not being by my……. side….. Nah, why wouldn’t she be there? I mean, ever since she’s been here she’s…. well, been THERE. Friends have to stick together! I have to trust in star like she trusts in me! Okay! I have to go, I gotta practice! Diaz out!

Entry #01-1920

In the name of the Devour, the Distorter, and the Promised End, guide me from the Blind Eternities.

That’s the creed of my small order of researchers. It may sound like a faith, but I’ve chosen them to be my gods under my terms. I just question if they can keep the end of the contract.

Ugin, Zorin, and Nahiri tried to seal it away, but Nissa broke that cycle of reinforcing the seal. The Gatewatch destroyed them, but they can still come to other planes now that they’re free from their physical bodies. The Eldrazi status now is silent and their spawns, scions, horrors, and worshippers are scattered, mostly in Zendikar and Innistrad.

I keep my numbers small, having only two close allies as the leading researchers, the rest are minor members split into two groups: Researchers to locate and study Eldrazi sites and specimen, and the Recon who test the “tamed Eldrazi” on hostile enemies on different planes.

One of the close allies is  a girl from Dominaria that made her first planeswalk to Kaladesh; She is my second-in-command, calling herself a Vessel of Ulamog just as I was dubbed a vessel of Kozilek. The only difference is that she has yet to make such a deal with Ulamog. The other close ally is the first skaab planeswalker I’ve ever met; she resides Innistrad, preferring not to go to other planes. The first planes walk lead her to Tarkir and she was trapped there until she learned how to control her powers. I named her as Monitor of Emrakul for several purposes.

Their names are Ghinna Karzzet and Lisa Alucard Curie respectively.

My order’s goal to research helps me prepare Eldrazis to help fight the Phyrexians on Mirrodin, but preparing will take time.”

Bioshock 30 Day Challenge

Day 27: What is your favorite audio diary?

Diane McClintock: *sighs* Another New Years, another night alone. I’m out, and you’re stuck in Hephaestus…working. Huh, imagine my surprise! Well, I just guess I’ll have another drink. Here’s a toast to Diane McClintock! Silliest girl in Rapture! Silly enough to fall in love with Andrew Ryan, silly enough t-

*explosion is heard, screams follow*

Voice 1: LONG LIVE ATLAS!

Voice 2: DEATH TO RYAN!

Diane McClintock: W-What….what happened? Oh…I’m bleeding….oh God…what’s happening?

I’ve yet to voice my love for other characters of the series such as Ms. McClintock. Her role as a character is meant to show the shifting ideologies in Rapture, probably from the upper class standpoint.This is beginning of her journey through the audio diaries, and this is the first glimpse of the civil war that brought the city down. In fact, this is the first audio diary the player comes across in the series. It’s a perfect way to get the player further engrossed with the story because of how open ended it is. What happens to Diane? What caused the explosion? Was everyone killed? In due time we come to find these answers, and even when we do this diary is still so intriguing.

Also, I replayed this diary a lot just because I loved Diane’s voice. :)

Frank Fontaine | “The Longest Con” | BioShock in Apollo Square

Frank Fontaine: Never play a man for the short con when you can play ‘em for the long one. Atlas is the longest con of all. Ryan wanted Frank Fontaine dead, I just gave him what he wanted. As Atlas, I got a new face, a clean record, and a fresh start. Now it’s time to take back Rapture and -

Diane McClintock: … Ryan did. I can’t wait to tell Atlas. He’ll be so pleased…

Frank Fontaine (Using Atlas’ voice): Uhh, Miss McClintock… what are you doing here? Let me just… (Back to normal voice) turn this off…

anonymous asked:

Hey, do you have any tips on how to extend your vocabulary?

Hi! Yes, I do have some:

  • Get a textbook and study the vocabulary it provides
  • Use language learning websites, apps, and games 
  • Open your dictionary and learn some new words from it
  • Make your own vocabulary lists 
  • Learn synonyms and antonyms for the words you already know
  • Read books, newspapers, magazines, comics, blogs, fanfics, wikipedia articles, etc.
  • Watch movies, tv-shows, news, youtube videos, etc.
  • Listen to music, radio, podcasts, audio books, etc.
  • Write diary/journal/blog, essays, stories, etc.
  • Translate texts from your target language to native language and vice versa
  • Talk to and have imaginary conversations with yourself and look up the words you don’t know
  • Talk with native speakers and ask them for any words you don’t know or understand
  • Change the language settings of your social media/electronic devices to your target language
  • Label items around your room/house with post-it notes that have the names of the items written on them

I hope this helps, good luck!

I could have been the toast of Broadway, the talk of Hollywood. But, instead, I followed you to this soggy bucket. When you needed my star light, I illuminated you. But now I rot, waiting for an audience that doesn’t… ever… come… I’m writing something for you, Andrew Ryan… it’s a requiem.

Companion!Sinclair AU Pt. 2

The last post is really, really popular and I didn’t expect it to get so many notes. So, here we go…

- The only time Sinclair gets pissed when you harvest a sister is if you do it to Cindy (only if you collect all of Mark’s audio diaries, though)

- He will comment on certain audio diaries: gives a moment of silence to Nina Carnegie once you reach her last diary, wonder how his diaries got to where they are, roll his eyes at Lamb’s, etc.

- Him and Stanley interacting. Just him and Stanley.

- If you aim the camera at his butt he’ll flirt with you.

- Aim it at his crotch though and you’ll get a wink.

- If you keep the camera on his face for longer than a minute he’ll joke about his Steinman teeth. After that he gets uncomfortable.

- If you aim your gun at him, you can actually chase him around the level.

- Instead of him being stuck in the train car at Siren Alley, Father Wales knocks you both out, kidnaps Sinclair, and is going to use him as a sacrifice. The whole church battle happens while Sinclair’s tied up to an altar.

- If you record him instead of letting him down, you’ll get some hilarious dialogue about you and bondage.

- At Pauper’s Drop, your first encounter with the Brute is him grabbing Sinclair like he’s King Kong.

- He’ll get annoyed when you get drunk.

- He’s actually scared to death of Spider Splicers lmao.

-You can actually save him. I’m going with his original ending of Lamb tying him up and torturing him, so you’re gonna have to battle legions of Splicers to get to where he is. Once you do, you carry him out while he’s out cold and it’s dramatic and shit.

- Good ending has him waking up in a hospital with Eleanor and some of the Little Sisters by his side. In the neutral, he wakes up alone with Eleanor leaving him a note about how she’s finding herself. In the evil ending, it’s implied Eleanor killed him.
