Living in Las Vegas #128: What to do When Your Studio Dies (Audio)

In a first for the Living in Las Vegas Podcast, after over six years of successful shows, we have a complete studio failure at the PodWorx studio (vs. the Vegas Video Network studio). This episode is the result of that event. (Anybody want to buy a $7900 computer. . .that doesn’t power up?)

Roku Trivia Question: We Have a Winner!

After pouring through our entries for the Vegas Video Network One-Year Anniversary trivia question for a Roku 2 XD Streaming Player, we have a winner.  As a reminder, here’s the question:


"Beginning with the first Pub Crawl episode on October 6th, 2010 and ending on October 8th, 2011, how many episodes network-wide have we produced on the Vegas Video Network?"

We excluded any video that wasn’t part of a show (VVN Events, studio building videos, etc.) The contest closed at end-of-business Friday, October 14. Because we didn’t get an exact correct answer, the rule is the closest answer without going over will win.

 

First, let’s take a look at the numbers:

SHOW

# of Episodes

Pub Crawl

 

48

Getting REAL (Estate) in Vegas

  48

Living in Las Vegas

  46

Awkward Silence 2.1 (& 1.0)

  37

Let’s Bet!

  34

Golf & Other Fore-Letter Words

  23

Top of the Food Chain

  22

Talktails

  19

Cup of Morning Sunshine

  10

Behind the Curtain

  6

Strip Search

 

5

Local’s Choice Radio

  1

TOTAL

 

299

 

Our winner is Tony from Canada with a guess of 277 is Bob with a guess of 295. (Yep, I forgot to count Strip Search in the first post. Whoops!  My guess is Tony is hating me right now!)  I should give a helluva attaboy to Bob from Vegas Life Today who was the closest with a guess of 295, but he was over the total. (Nevermind all that. . .Bob is the winner!)

We’ll be contacting Tony Bob and get his shipping information to get his shiny new Roku player to him.

Congrats Tony Bob. . .and thanks to all who participated!

Vegas Video Network One-Year Anniversary Live Show

On October 2nd, 2010, the VEGAS VIDEO NETWORK was launched. In celebration of this special event, we take a look back at the year by highlighting the business, the people, the videos (great highlight reel here!) and momentum behind VVN. We wrapped up the party with a triva question for our online viewers (live and video-on-demand), for whom the winner will receive a Roku 2 XD player.

Be the first with the correct answer and win a Roku 2 XD Player.


Here’s the question:

Beginning with the first Pub Crawl episode on October 6th, 2010 and ending on October 8th, 2011, how many episodes network-wide have we produced on the Vegas Video Network?

Contest will close at end-of-business Friday, October 14. First correct answer wins. If no correct answer is received by EOB 10/14, the closest answer without going over will win.
