Happy New Year from Sidepodcast

Happy New Year from Sidepodcast

2009 has been and gone and it is to 2010 that we turn our attention. Happy New Year to everyone who reads, listens, participates, lurks and shares with Sidepodcast. I hope you are having a great day, and that it is the start of a wonderful year.

  • Mr C has already done the rounds and thanked everyone he can think of in a special end of year wrap up post. There is also a handy list of some of the highlights of the year, a sort of Best of Sidepodcast in articles rather than audio.
  • I mentioned our New Year's Resolution post yesterday but it is worth repeating again as there is still time to make those promises that you are bound to keep for the rest of the year. They can be F1 related or otherwise but we will revisit them at the end of 2010 and see how you got on. No pressure!
  • As Mr C took the time to thank me in his aforementioned post, I will abuse my position in the daily to thank him right back. I'm not good at the lovely huggy stuff, but needless to say Sidepodcast wouldn't be what it is without him and his clever code, late nights and amusing insights. I can't imagine anyone else I'd want to run this site with, so thanks to Mr C.

That's enough of that, we have welcomed in the New Year, and now it's time to focus on 2010. As ever, I will see you in the comments.

    I have to say, Mr C ruined the countdown. It's a bit of an anti-climax when he shouts YESSS at seven.

    Stoopid commenting the time.

    They probably couldn't get a panda. I thought I saw a couple of penguins as well. The BBC stole your idea for a zoo with animals beginning with P.

  • Steven Roy01/01/2010 at 00:05

    Gawd, what's he up to now?

    He is on with Alan Carr and that annoying Tate woman. They have been plugging it all week. I wonder if channel 4 went on a Giggles course

    I have a tip for you, if you want to melt your dried out wax for your skis, don't use the microwave. It goes kaboom.

  • Kathi01/01/2010 at 09:57

    also sticky wax is sticky

  • Jeremy01/01/2010 at 10:13

    the trick is to use your left hand to feel your right arm and vice versa, not right hand for right arm and so on.

    Putting a cd in the micorwave is amusing,

    Its like a firework display on a plate!

    I used to enjoy doing that as a kid with chocolate chip museli bars in foil wrappers. Then one day I realised it was probably a bad thing.

    it did. The wax too. It is now on my skis ... and in several other place.

    :P My new year's resolution is to get fitter. I can't give up on the first day. Although I can't find the usb cable for my mp3-player and doing sports without something to distract you from it, is just cruel. On the other hand it is probably to cold for my mp3 player anyway. It is quite the wuss.

    OK I've decided to stay inside and watch some TV and eat candy.

    would someone please tell Europe that a minimum price of 700 euro for a flight from nice to barcelona is ridiculous, its only a 1 hour flight. Those two cities are stupidly hard to travel between :(

  • Amy01/01/2010 at 11:38

    700 Euros? Are you kidding me???

    no :( as much as I want to go to the south of France I'm thinking I might have to drop it because its just so stupidly awkward/expensive.

    I think you are booking it too far in advance. The low cost carriers don't release their flights more than 6 months in advance I thought?

    Can you not just hire a car or take a train instead?

    I think you are booking it too far in advance. The low cost carriers don't release their flights more than 6 months in advance I thought?

    the low cost carriers don't seem to fly that route at all. Actually I lie, Vueling do so I might have some luck with them but it depends if the days they fly work out. I think every airline should fly everywhere 7 days per week :D

  • Amy01/01/2010 at 11:43

    Can you not just hire a car or take a train instead?

    I don't want to drive in Europe and the trains are silly in that area, theres no direct one and they're slow. I am short on time, I want high speed trains!

    Hello all, Happy New Year.

    Thank you Lukeh for the entertainment last night, hope you feel better soon, lots of sleep & chocolate milk usually makes me feel better.

    Amy, would it be cheaper to fly to a major airport (London/Paris/Rome) from Nice then fly to Barcelona?

  • Amy01/01/2010 at 11:59

    I am in awe of your mad skillz and bravery. I'm terrified of trying to come to Melbourne in March!

    psssh Melbourne is easy! I am conveniently ignoring the fact i made a friend come with me the first time. But it was the first time I'd left New Zealand!

  • Amy01/01/2010 at 12:01

    Amy, would it be cheaper to fly to a major airport (London/Paris/Rome) from Nice then fly to Barcelona?

    Never tried that but it looks like hard work. Let gravity do the work

  • Nick in Dubai01/01/2010 at 12:47

    That sounds tiring!

    Pssst... its easier going down hills ;)

    can't afford that.

    Ah i hadnt thought of that, the idea of skiing for free is quite alien to me!

  • Steven Roy01/01/2010 at 12:51

    I only caught the last half hour of the New Year's day concert from Vienna. BOO. Brilliant as usual although it had the weirdest conductor ever. Hope it turns up on the iplayer because I want to try and figure out how the orchestra knew what he wanted them to do as he didn't seem to move his hands for a lot of the time.

  • Steven Roy01/01/2010 at 12:52

    Ah i hadnt thought of that, the idea of skiing for free is quite alien to me!

    Dont they have the music written down in front of them?

    I thought the conductor just sought of danced along for the crowds entertainment, just telling everyone when to start and stop?

    He is supposed to keep time and tell them when to make changes. The conductor was 85 years old and had no notes at all. The first part I saw he was just standing there shaking like he had Parkinsons

    reading back through the comments...

    I love the sheer number of drunken tweets after his earlier sober declaration of "May tweet later on phone, but if I don't have an absolutely awesome new years celebration everyone!!" :D :D

    i may have captured it for posterity:

    eheheh :D at least i know he's like Mr C when drunk.. hehe :) loveable drunks are brilliant :)

    Just looked at twitter now, deary deary me...

    i did try and tell you you'd been tweeting but you wouldn't believe me :)

    tell him to get rid of it because its the dumbest tattoo ever :D

    don't be mean about Jenson's tattoo.. it's not that bad. His tattoo on his ankle is cute too.

    He wanted to go into more detail over my criticisms of the gossip column and the time taken to publishing stories on the BBC F1 website. But in his signature it says "This e-mail (and any attachments) is confidential and may contain personal views which are not the views of the BBC unless specifically stated", which is why I might be sounding cagey about it.

    If you write it as the first character then it says, "Invalid comment" presumably because of no content.

    I would say that it has to be honest. He is aware of the GMM issue for sure (I was not the first to raise that concern) and there seem to be a lot of things we are not aware of as punters that restrict or constrain what the BBC can offer on the web. He implied that we, as dedicated F1 fans, are expecting something that the BBC cannot and will not deliver from their F1 website.

    Looking back at the comments, I would suggest that we may have been rash at the time to dismiss a lot of stories that turned out to be correct.

    I suppose they have to be careful not to be seen as competing with dedicated F1/racing sites, being publically-funded, although I don't know how a gossip column sits with that...

    But the problem with these lists is that they always ignore all of the times that they were wrong. I don't particularly think the beeb should be dealing with rumours and speculation. They can break stories if they like. Or if they feel they can't break stories then they can report news.

    In my subsequent reply I noted that with Eddie saying a lot of incorrect things and the website running a gossip column it didn't help the credibility of the stories.

  • Alex Andronov01/01/2010 at 17:07

    Gosh Doctor Who is messing with the natural state of things here at Katherine's parents house and we are having to have dinner early! It's played merry havoc apparently.

    Kat and I never eat at the same time day to day but apparently here it's pretty much set. But Katherine's mother has made Katherine's father make an allowance so it's all over in time for Doctor Who!

  • Gavin Brown (RubberGoat)01/01/2010 at 17:07

    The thing is, and I said this in my subsequent reply, is that he should use his blog column to outline some of these points that he emailed to me because I am not the only one with the concerns. What bothers me slightly is that there are a lot of unknowns about how the website is run and I think it would be best if some of these were laid out in the open...

    I agree with that. The BBC shouldn't have to justify the times they were right, because it shouldn't even be a question. They should have the facts or a very good reason for posting without them.

    That's true. I really didn't like the way he simply brushed aside the classic races thing a few months back and then gave a silly reply on his blog about it. Just be honest and explain properly if people are asking.

    In a way its a good idea as it seperates the news from the speculation. But that divide needs to be made clear which it isnt at the moment.

    Effectivly they need to say. We arent reporting this as news because we have no knowledge or evidence of it happening. But this media source (or sources) think x,y & z.

    People will soon see which sources are reliable that way. And at the same time it covers the BBC from missing a story which later proves to be true.

    They just need to be clear on the difference between speculation and news

  • Nick in Dubai01/01/2010 at 17:13

    I suppose they have to be careful not to be seen as competing with dedicated F1/racing sites, being publically-funded, although I don't know how a gossip column sits with that...

    If they link to the stories they will drive traffic to the original sources

    Can't help but think of the episode of the Simpsons where Mario Theissen loans them his summer house and there's a sticky note on absolutely everything.

    Maybe that's what BBC F1 needs. More sticky notes.

  • Kathi01/01/2010 at 17:22

    Kat had to write her comment twice after the first one got eaten somehow. She included a single left angle bracket because she wanted to point at the fireworks eg "left angle bracket- fireworks"

    At least that's the only thing she could think she had got wrong.

    That had the same problem a few times.

    Some people like non sense though, look at all the football speculation in the red tops, most people realise that a lot of the speculation rubbish, but its fun to look at the possibilities.

    I used to read the BBC's football gossip column, and it was quite entertaining. I

    if you go down that route you may as well just make everything up. peter sauber has a twitter account and he's announced mr.c is going to be his second driver.

    Other people might not mind discussing the possibilities of certain rumours despite the fact they were highly unlikely to be true.

    I dont think i could be bothered with it nececarily, but I dont think the BBC should avoid telling people what the speculation is.

    If anything it could put GMM out of business as the Beeb could link to the original story (or Publication). And in one short post they would effectivly have covered all of GMM's daily output.

    So they should link to GMM then?

    I dont see any harm in linking to a story and Putting (in Spanish) next to it.

    The key is to say its speculation. If they say that, then its far better than them reading it as 'News' on some GMM site surely?

    As I see it, the 'crazy stories' serve a purpose for a lot of peoplein f1 and the media, I dont think they are going to go away, i guess the best we can hope for is for a think line to be laid down between them and the real news, so people can tell the difference

    NO!

    Whilst the gossip column isnt for everyone, if it was done daily it really could slow GMM down, in the UK at least.

    The problem is it isnt going to go away. People love to hear the latest news, and there will always be people willing to serve something up to meet the demand. the infomation age has made this all the worse.As I see it the best we can hope for is someone like the BBC to say, this is news, this is speculation. and if they could add a disclamer saying we have tried to confim these stories and have been unable to do so, then mores the better.

    I agree at the moment though the gossip column doesnt do a good enough job of saying it is speculation though.

    I think this might be a good thing. we dont need more f1 journos being put out of business because they cant compete with the BBC's resources.

    They could do other thinks though, more interactivity would be good. And maybe 1 or 2 F1 forums during the off season to discuss all the latest news with some of the people involved?

The middle column being a list of the blogs available - with a seperate blog for each person on the team (ted should not be hidden in mole and why is lee's on a different site) and no mole. And the third column should be a reverse chronological list of all video content.

    I have moist cheeks from the moments between Wilf and the Doctor, as well as the final last words. As silly as it seems, they were just... heart breaking. :(

    He never met Sally Sparrow. Besides if he'd visited anyone else, the main story would have been wrapped up about 10 minutes into the programme.

    Like my resolution said. I hate him right now. I may grow to like him later.

    also what happened to the Master? did he die or what?

  • Christine01/01/2010 at 20:02

    He never met Sally Sparrow.

    He did, she gave him a folder.

  • Lukeh01/01/2010 at 20:02

    He never met Sally Sparrow. Besides if he'd visited anyone else, the main story would have been wrapped up about 10 minutes into the programme.

    He did meet her, at the end of Blink. I just thought, for it being the most popular modern episode and the chemistry between the two when they did meet, he'd just say hello again maybe.

  • RG01/01/2010 at 20:03

    Like my resolution said. I hate him right now. I may grow to like him later.

    Why hate?

    Hello all, watched the End of Time Part 2. Best Line:

    There is a reason why he's world champion.

    The tardis is supposed to change with each doctor - new rooms, control changes (new buttons/levers!) etc etc.

    It didn't change between Ecclescakes and Tennant. I think RTD just wanted to get rid of it and have something new for Moffat and have his own Dr Who rather than RTDs

    A very very fast air-going vessel, I guess...

    well.. i'm assuming there was some pre recording.. Jess was in Hawaii the other day.... i think (from her tweets).. so i assume Jenson had a sneaky visit to the Mclaren factory without Mr Brawn knowing last year...

    True, but this was uber-dramatist Russell T Davies' last episode. He was never going to leave it as "Ooh, I'm a new Doctor - where's my paintbrush?"...

    No it didn't - and it was wrong not to!! Moffat is possibly more buried in the canon than RTD has ever managed though...

    Well either they got Lukeh to do a bit of Photoshopping or he wore the shirt for the photo when he visited McLaren and they simply hid it from us until the contract thingy was out of the way.

    Knowing how well I know Lou, photoshopping such a picture would result in much trauma. ;)

    Grr. :)

    I like what Gavin linked me to this morning - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CMNry4PE93Y - as I woke up looking exactly the same.

  • littlepurplegoth01/01/2010 at 21:45

    Well - at least you were drunk tweeting more than drunk dialling...

    (I can't be the only person who has had to remove someones phone to stop them drunk dialling?)
