No more Static Noise


Fuzz

2,056 views

I have decided to kill off Static Noise. Even though it's been months since we did a show, and it's been about a year since we did them weekly and regularly, I let the guys know that I have no plans to bring the show back. I also removed it from iTunes so we could stop paying the $20/month we paid to host it.

The show was a lot of fun. We had some good times. But there were some problems behind the scenes that made it more and more a chore to do a show. It basically stopped being fun like it was in the beginning.

As for me hosting the show, the truth is that for the past couple years I've been dealing with depression, and it really hampers my ability to plan for anything in the future. It took a lot to get me to do a show. Once we were doing it, I was fine. It's the first part that was the problem. I know it was frustrating for the other guys that I was so inconsistent with scheduling.

I also didn't feel we were doing our best with the show itself, and as a result the show wasn't growing. During our peak we were getting around 10-15k downloads a month, which was awesome. Towards the end we were lucky to break 4-5k.

I decided that would should re-focus on content for GDA for now. That's not to say we'll never a show again. I love chatting with Mikey, Jimmy, Matt and Jack - and I think when we're "on", we put on a fun show. I'd just like to do it at a point when I'm feeling up to it and feel like we could really do the show that I think we can do.

Thanks to the thousands of you that listened every time we put out a show. It was really great to connect with so many of you and have you guys laugh at our stupid jokes and over-inflate our egos.

I loved Static Noise when it was around. It was wonderful and fun to hear you guys chat about all things Green Day. I think it's a good idea for you to end it though if you're not/weren't happy with where it is/was going.

I hope something like this might rear it's head in the future...

You never know... when my radio station gets its new call in system in place, maybe you guys could call in and we could have a GD chat show. Maybe. :P

Hope you feel better soon Andres! And as sad as I am to see the show go I also fully understand why you don't want to continue doing it. Also 20$ a month is quite a lot, had no idea you had to pay that to have the show on iTunes!

Brave of you to admit that. The early shows were absolutely fantastic, I downloaded and loved every one of them. And those early morning (for me) live shows were just hilarious, good memory I'll always have. The more recent shows were not really hooking me but thank you for all the effort and time you've given to Static Noise nonetheless!

I know I'll miss you guys screw around on the podcast. I'm really sorry to hear that depression is something you struggle with; it may not seem like much, but we're all here for you. We care.

Aww, that's too bad. I loved Static noise, it was the thing that made me laugh when I was in a bad mood. It was impossible not to find somthing funny in each episode. Constantly looking on ITunes for more episodes, so hopefully someday, static noise will be back, so just know that if you ever decide to come back with the show, you've got a fan here who will listen :)

All things run their course. It was fun while it lasted. Here's to new ideas and new projects!

This was all pretty heartbreaking when I messaged Andres yesterday and asked "can we do a podcast?" Learning that there would be no more episodes of my main connection to GDA and that someone as amazing and wonderful as Andres has been battling depression was a tough pill to swallow. Needless to say Andres has and always will have my love and support, and if at any point he/we feel the time is right to do the podcast again, you better believe it'll be the best motherfucking comeback you could hope for!

Oh, and Tman684... keep it coming! ;)

Sad news... I will be forever thankful for each one who made or took part in that amazing show! So much fun and laughter, so many intersting Green Day news and stories and rare facts! In my worst days the podcast always made me smile! You were like a guide for such a novice in Green Day world as I was! THANK YOU! (sorry for my bad English).

PS: Tony and M1key - I love you, guys! :)
