Dryer machines have these things in them that catch lint, and when it gets too much lint on it, you use this little cloth type of thing to clean the lint off. But it is a hard cloth.
"Lint screen" is probably what you call the thing inside the dryer... I don't know what the cloth itself would be called, exactly.

Yeah, I knew what you meant. I have a whole box of those, so I'll try using them.

I had a headset mic (doubt it was the same one), but I didn't really like using it, and it broke anyway. I think I used it to record my two earliest flashes on my site before I switched to a regular mic.

I don't know about that, there. I have a headset and Cooledit Pro, and it hasn't been working out great. Might just be because I yell so much and because of the headset the mic ends up being way to close to my mouth and giving me lots of scratchy sound [Crazy Eric's Krazy Car Factory, The Adventures of Emo Boy, etc], which sounds like shitzle.

Yeah, I'm under the impression that a headset mic is generally... not better than a stand-up mic.

Definitely not for recording for Flash cartoons. They're better for online games and stuff. Well...I don't know that firsthand, I don't play online games but...I read that somewhere.

For some reason somebody wanted me to do voices for this yugioh flash and I did. And the voices came out fine. No static or nothing. I'll post if anyone wants a listen.

But the real reason I said use a headset is because it won't matter how clear your voice sounds if the acting is horrible.

EDIT: Yes I'm aware of the difference between the quality of mics. Sometimes it's just better to leave it to the voice actors.

EDIT 2:

I don't know about that, there. I have a headset and Cooledit Pro, and it hasn't been working out great.

Just turn your recording volume down when you record your lines. (Like DOWN, maybe quieter than your System Beep) That's basically all you need to do. And if you get that "roboticness" make sure your room is as quiet as possible when recording and get the noise profile to be a little lower than what your current recording volume is. It should turn out fine after that. And if it doesnt, then I don't know because that's all I do and it works so blegh.

Well yeah, but... I might as well use a better microphone instead of going out and buying... yeah...

That's a very good point. I think a lot of people nowadays overlook the actual quality of the voice acting and look for quality in the voice recording instead. Really, as long as it's understandable and coherent, the recording quality is good. It's the internet. Nobody's going to make something of extremely high quality.

That's true. Especially when some people compress the living daylights out of it and their efforts go to waste.
Bleh. I'm bored.

Oh Nar, you should stop acting like you're one of those amazing people that nobody knows about.



Oh my Gaylord! When I scroll over the store... button, some type drawing of a female person appears on the screen! A new character perhaps? Miss Caring? ...Nah.

I'm not. I'm acting like the non-amazing person quite a few people know about.

...Oh. It was your like-it-or-don't-whatever-you-probably-clicked-a-wrong-link-nobody-knows-about-this-cartoon aditude that lead me to believe that. Then again, there is a fine line between those two things that the common web animator portrays himself/and very rarely herself as.




Also, why is my hilariously common phrase quoted in your sig?

I joke about that kind of attitude. I'm not really self-negative, whether it be concerning my cartoon or anything else. Hah, this is making no sense.
Anyway, I put that in my sig because it just made me crack up when it was actually in the topic and I figure it'd look funny out of context.

Oh, and that one girl mentioned in your other post is a new character who will debut episode 12.

I like the new intro, but just promise me one thing: don't change the logo again. It used to be similar to the current one, then it turned into a TV, now this. I'm not saying it's bad, but a logo is a symbol of identity. If you keep on changing your identity, hey, you might end up being Japanese. Or worse. English! Like me.
Bleh. I'm bored.

Yeah, I know. It's a nice place to live, as long as it's not 10pm on a Friday.

AaaaaaaaanewwAAAAAAAAYYy

I saw the new GEOWeasel, Nar. Fan-friggin-tastic. This has been the one cartoon ever that I've actually fell off my chair. And that's hard, considering its cool and happy and has armrests. The whole Nar Beatboxing Thing was just brilliant. Of course, now I instantly have to go leave billions of emails in your inbox to cater to my needs.

Promise not to sue me if you got hurt from falling out of your chair and we'll be cool.
But I have no emails. I'm so lonely :cry:

I would have emailed you if I needed anything. But right now, all I need are Oreos. Why are they so damn hard to get where I live?

Sorry to bump, but if anyone's interested, still checks these forums, or has been wondering what happened, I finally put out a new episode, both on the siteand newgrounds if anyone wants to check them out. Also, the episodes go back to weekly updates, with the exception of next week.

New game, new game, new game, new game, new game, new game...

I liked this episode. The animation in the fight scene was well worth the wait, and I liked Dr. Schnoz squidging up against the wall. RoboSpaz was quite funny too. Nar talking oddly after playing the video game creeped me out though. It's not natural, I tells ya'! I hope Jimbob solves his problems with the fridge though.

One problem though. Weas says 'He's your brother and your girlfriend.' Nar isn't a girl, unless it lives up to the promise of sex in the AdultSwim opening. I also feel a bit sorry for you about the X-Box gag. I do fully agree with you, but I can imagine some people on NG aren't going to like you for that.
