Wednesday Aug 19th
Aside from a few updates (please read the schedule carefully to catch them), there are a few things we should talk about.
Firstly, the whole Drunk Kiah thing got a bit out of hand, so I wrote a post about it. If you have an opinion about it, you may not appreciate mine. You can read it HERE if you’re interested.
Secondly, I was just Facetiming with my husband and he was talking about Zed’s Zippy Line. He heard a caller ask a very interesting question: how can they tell if someone recorded themselves saying it and then just sped up the recording? AAAAAHAHAHAHAHA! Brilliant!!! The thought never occurred to me AT ALL – I am not nearly devious enough and would never consider cheating on a contest, but really, that would be a stroke of freaking genius! Have you timed yourself? How many times can YOU say it in 15 seconds? The fastest I heard was someone winning $400 for saying it 8 times, and they said it pretty fast. If some devious mind decided to record themselves saying it clearly and concisely and at normal speed, they could use an app like Tempo to speed it up. When the timer starts, they hit Play and that recording zips through that line clearly, concisely, and super fast, earning the player what? Maybe an extra $150? I couldn’t do it. It’s not in me, I wouldn’t feel right about it.
Or let’s say that they don’t use the app, but simply record themselves saying it so that they don’t make any mistakes – when you’re live on the air, it’s easy to get stage fright, stumble over words, and even forget what you called for! But I suppose that’s the catch – they need you a little off guard, otherwise it’s not really a contest, is it? It’s just you saying the words perfectly, and where’s the challenge in that?! Hah! So don’t do that. Don’t record yourself. Do it fairly, do it live, and don’t be sucked into cheating by greed. The $150 isn’t worth your dignity and integrity…
Keep Trying and Happy Dialling!
