Hanging Around On Friday – Cool Clothes, Lots of Laughs, A Bit Of Madness And Furry Animals

Valentin Mavrodin hides behind a purple cowOh dear what have we unleashed on the Traffic Exchange community? Valentin from SurfAholics Alpha messages me on Skype and the conversation goes somerthing like this:

Val: “Hey Patrick I am thinking of doing my second spreecast.”

Me: “OK cool. When do you have in mind?”

Val: “Hmmm, in about 30 minutes.”

Me: “Er ok. What are you going to talk about?”

Val: “Well I don’t have anyting planned at all. I thought I would just get on Spreecast and see what happens.”

Me: “This should be interesting. Count me in.”

So it is his second show and he has no script, nothing at all to really talk about and he does a show which lasts for three-and-a-half hours and is packed full of fun and laughter for the entire time.

He has five special guests during the show, didn’t try to promote anything at all and just set out to have a good laugh and hang out with people from the TE community.

Jon Olson was first up but he has just woken up and at times still looked a little sleepy. Or maybe it was just something I said?

Raymond Wooten – bondsman in CTP and a member of Cash Surfing Network – Team 1 – came on camera to say Hi and was rewarded with some surprise XP from Val and Jon for doing so.

Carl Davies, the guy who likes to dodge slow flying sponges, (come back to this blog tomorrow for more about that) tried to get on but couldn’t connect and Nathan from the Bravos also tried to get on air but his cats wouldn’t let him.

Terry Allison from The Alphas was next up. He tried to win 100 million XP by making Valentin disappear just by concentrating really hard while looking up very intently.

Sadly all he managed to do was make the host look a little blurry so he got no XP at all.

Matt Badura was supposed to be working offline today so he came to the show heavily disguised in the hope that nobody would recognize him. I think the name at the top of the screen gave things away though…

He did, however, manage to make Terry disappear but nobody told him about the 100 million XP giveaway so he didn’t win anything. Matt, if you are reading this, Terry would like to come back now as he has things he needs to get on with.

Valentin explained why he will never make it as a professional goal-keeper and the show was peppered with a lot of tiny animals including a purple cow and some cuddly toy tigers.

I don’t think I have laughed so much in a long time and I think I can quite safely say that a new star of Spreecast has been found.

  11. Yeah that was entartaining for sure.I wanted to demonstrate by doing this Spreecast that you don’t have to have any content at all to start one.That was a great end of the week!

    • Patrick Griffin says:

      Yes this was a good example of the “just get on with it and get it done” mentality.
      Most people would have needed some sort of notes or something written down to fall back on in case things went wrong.
      The fact that you didn’t have any of that means that you are both creative and perhaps just a little crazy.
      But I think I knew that already. 😉
