I've come into an interesting online community. Starting with Kevin Pollak's Chat Show on Sunday's at 6pm eastern time where Kevin spends sometimes up to over 2 amazing hours talking to guests, they also have an interactive chat room at the bottom of the screen. From this chat room I have made many, many online friends. Coupled with this blog (that I hate when I neglect for so long sometimes, my apologies!) I have friends from around the world! It's an awesome feeling. And these aren't people I just chat with through Facebook and Twitter. I mean like talking on the phone and using webcam, A LOT. lol Though its only been roughly over a year I feel like I've none some of these people for ages!
Black Sky Radio has been another big part of this. You can check them out at http://blackskyradio.com/. 2 of the hosts @Nightmare54 and @JennaAtBlackSky you can follow on Twitter. They always post links to the site and when special guests will be on for interviews and callers can chime in with their questions. Also, much like the Kevin Pollak Show, there is an interactive chat room that they set up so we the fans can all interact, ask questions, and just have a shitload of fun.
Up until about 6-7 months ago if I worked a morning shift and got home at 3pm I would have nothing to do so I would pass out, sleep til 8pm, then not be able to sleep all night, wake up in the morning, rinse and repeat. Obviously this was not good for my sleeping schedule but I just have such a hard time sleeping at night in general that napping in the afternoon would become the only rest I would really get. Then on Black Sky they added the chat room, which u can open from another page at http://tinychat.com/blackskyradio. Then u can listen to the music on their main page and then if u want during the down time Nightmare and Jenna can entertain u in the chat room. This became my savior. It kept me from napping and wasting my afternoon sleeping.
There's a lot of regulars in the chat with people from around the US like me in DC, people in Missouri, Texas, Los Angeles, and quite a few people from Scotland! We can all talk in the chat or also join in on the webcam fun. It's always a great time.
The past couple weeks, every Wednesday they have been having someone from the HBO series Band of Brothers since the 10 year anniversary is around the corner. Our friend in Scotland has been getting these interviews and for the past few weeks they've had Scott Grimes (voice of Steve in American Dad), James Madio (Hook), Ross McCall (TV's Crash), and coming up this Wednesday Dexter Fletcher (Hotel Babylon, Kick-Ass!!). The hosts are always awesome and the interviews very comfortable. They can have a guest on for hours and u wouldn't even know because its so engaging and informative.
Also tune in tomorrow for Fiesta Bo, @fiestabo on Twitter, who is Tom Hanks apprentice. Should be an awesome interview. Plus, when you come visit the chat room u also have the pleasure of seeing me! lol. I'm not there all the time as sometime I work in the afternoons.
So tune in!
