Minstrel Cycle Eight (aka Attack of the MP3s)

It has been quite a while since I posted any songs, but I haven’t been just sitting on my laurels. I have been working on College Physics, which I somehow managed to pass with 84%. Additionally, I have been recorded several songs, in MP3 format, which seems to work better, since WMV sometimes goes a bit wonky at times.

F2P and Velious

Copyright 2010 Sony Online Entertainment

Sorry, no witty title today.

There are two things I would like to talk about.

1) F2P – I understand the debate. I can foresee the inevitable server merges that might result after some people decide to move over to the F2P servers. What I would like to state, and granted, this is my own opinion, is that it isn’t necessarily a bad thing. The only bad part about server mergers is that other people, with better stats, might be able to supplant those in the top spots on the server that doesn’t move.
Back when I used to play the first EQ, my server, Bristlebane, merged with Solusek Ro. There were several other mergers that occured. However, if you take a look, they are still releasing expansions. That suggests to me that server mergers don’t necessarily spell the end for a game. Continue reading ‘F2P and Velious’

Casting Call

I’m issuing a general casting call to folks on the Najena Server. I plan on shooting the video to “I’m Punting Gnomes” this weekend. I need about 20 gnomes, with featherfall and some means of FD. I also need 10-20 characters of other races, with the dance moves from the Nights of the Dead quest (see above picture).

Shooting will occur around noon (US CST), and will take place (primarily) in Paineel.

If you fit that criteria, and are interested, please send an in-game mail to Necrotherian on Najena server.

(Addendum: Received no response, so I ended up filming it by myself.)

Minstrel Cycle Seven

I’ve had a lot going on, but I have taken time to record a few more songs. I hope you like them, but if you don’t, then feel free to go write and record your own.

On a side note, you may have noticed that I have used the .mp3 format as opposed to the .wav format. There are two reasons for this. The first is that, at least in my opinion, the .mp3 format suffers less quality degradation than the .wav format. The second is that, if people possess the right software, they can put my songs on their mp3 players. I don’t think that this is possible with the .wav format.

So without further ado, I bring you Minstrel Cycle Seven:

Peeps are ‘fraid to chat in BGs – A parody of “Ridin’ (Dirty)” by Chamillionaire feat. Krayzie Bone.

I’m a Priest – A parody of “I’mma Be” by the Black Eyed Peas.

I’m on my Arasai – A parody of “Outside” by Staind.

And finally,

They want Necro hearts – A parody of “Don’t Phunk With My Heart” by the Black Eyed Peas.

Until next time,

A Chair to Kneel Upon

I would love to go to Fan Faire this year. I really would. Unfortunately, however, not only did I apparently miss the deadline to purchase the platinum pass, I am also quite busy and will probably remain so for the foreseeable future.

Since I won’t be able to go, I can only call upon others to do something in my stead.

I need everyone who is planning on going to kneel on chairs.

I know that this sounds like a rather weird request, but there is a reason behind it. Everquest II is the game I play, and the game I love. However, even after 6 years since release, they still haven’t figured out a way to make our characters sit down in a chair properly. Your characters, being residents of a completely virtual environment, will not be able to make their voices heard. Therefore, you must represent them to the developers.

The quickest, and least likely to get someone booted from the Faire, method to achieve this is to sit the way that your character would. I have a feeling that if the devs see a room full of people kneeling when they should be sitting, they will get the point; even the ones that insist that there is nothing wrong with the way that summoners have been handicapped during the last 3 expansions.

So I encourage you to let the devs know, “We will not continue to take this one sitting down.”

Until next time,

Confirmation

For a while, it has been surmised that the next City Festival will be in New Halas. If you look at the chat text above, you will see what I believe is “in-game” confirmation of that assumption.

Until next time,

Minstrel Cycle Six

I recorded a few more songs.

So without further ado, here they are:

Did I Get XP Debt For This? – A parody of Deana Carter’s “Did I Shave My Legs for This?”

Don’t Take the Bard – A parody of Tim McGraw’s “Don’t Take The Girl”

Gigglegibber – A parody of Rihanna’s “Umbrella”

I’m Sorry Farmer – A parody of Eminem’s “Cleanin’ Out My Closet”

Just Mute It – A parody of Eminem’s “Just Lose It”

Raid Night – A parody of Black Eyed Peas’ “I Gotta Feelin’ (That Tonight’s Gonna Be a Good Night)”

Well, that is about all I have time for tonight.

Until next time,
