Raising a Raider #14 The Sad Little Caboose

Just when Gamu thought 4.3 would leave him behind, it springs him forward.

Raising a Raider #13 Gear, Gear, Keep Your Cheer

Gamu's life mate dinged 85 and then began to seek out gear. It wasn't as smooth as one would hope for.

Raising a Raider #12 Full Quartz Press

I kind of winged the title while posting because I realized I forgot to do one when I made the segment.

Pardon is up!

"Pardon" a fullcast written by Marshal Latham and produced by Bryan Lincoln, is now up on the "Journey into..." podcast. I participated as one of the voices, the rather "simple" turkey Bradford, I hope it wasn't typecasting. It's an all AIE cast so check it out!

12 Days of Winter Veil Choir Casting Call!!!!

EDIT: The Time for submissions has passed. The Song is finished and will be released soon. Details on which shows it will be featured on will be posted on twitter @Revngeek and on this blog.

Assignment: Winter Veil Parody
Seeking: Singers and instrumentalists
When’s it due: Monday Dec 5th

Note, there is now a NERF! Many were finding the instructions below confusing. No problem here's a new track to sing along with, if all you want to sing is the choir melody. You will hear the lovely tones of Huntsthewind. Sing what he sings when he sings it. Again send back just your voice. Have fun!

Nerfed Sing along track

A while back I did a song about AIE, in which I did it “Playing for Change” style. Don’t know what that is? Click here …It’s cool I’ll wait…Ok, cool huh? I wanted to do something with folks from all over recording a song together too. How did the AIE song turn out? Well, click here ……yeah I’ll wait again. Well Winter Veil is almost upon us and I’ve written a take on “The 12 Days of Christmas”, if you don’t know what that is…Google it.

Anyway, I want to include as many people as I can. So, there are solos and a choir part. Most of the solos, I have people in mind for, but the choir is open call! That’s right YOU can be in the choir!

How can you accomplish this? There are things I can provide but some things you’ll need. You will need a decent microphone to record with and a program to record JUST YOUR VOICE. Either use a program that will let you track record you with the track and then isolate your vocal track, or load the file on an mp3 player or one computer and record on another. Please send the file in a high quality mp3 format. You’ll need to email it to revngeek at geemaildotcom I split that up so to avoid spam crawlers use the normal gmail spelling. :)

I’m providing recordings of the parts:

The Melody - This would be the easiest to try.

If you’re feeling a little adventurous and wanting to get back in touch with your high school choir days? I’ve got some harmony parts. Here they are alone with a 2,3,4,1 click to get you started on the first beat. This is my first attempt a 4 part arranging, so be kind.

Harmony line 1 (alto-ish)

Harmony line 2 (tenor-ish)

Harmony line 3 (bass-ish)

But Revn it’s hard to do those parts by themselves…well then have them with the melody in one ear and the harmony in the other.

Split (alto-ish)

Split (tenor-ish)

Split (bass-ish)

But Revn, I don’t sing so good, but I play a mean (insert instrument here)!
Then use this instrumental track and get funky

Now the lyrics:
As a Choir member you have :
On the first day of Winter Veil Blizzard Gave to me...
a mount and Diablo 3.

On the second day of Winter Veil Blizzard Gave to me...(space)
And a mount and Diablo 3.

On the third day of Winter Veil Blizzard Gave to me...(space)
And a mount and Diablo 3.

Etc through all 12 days. Do note that day 12 the intro and outro stretch out.
You also will sing all the day 5’s this is a badly illustrated notes up and down version: You will likely just sing day 5’s intro right into the 5th day line, but for 6-12 there will be a break.


Also for Days 9 and 11 the line changes

Coming -----------------awwwww
----------------- Month

------------I got
At Least------------- pet

I’m keeping the rest of the lyrics under wraps JJ Abrams style for now.
Any questions feel free to email at above address or DM twitter revngeek.
Excited to get started on choir assembly…get recording my minions!!!!!

AIE-A (Non Official AIE Anthem)

An unofficial anthem for the guild AIE. This was done "playing or change" style with contributors sending in their tracks to be assembled together. The guildes who contributed were: Koltrane, Buryal, Zobbo, and ScottyM.

Real Azerothian Heroes #18 Mr I Don't Speak the Lingo

This one was born the night my wife yelled in frustration, "How can this tank not know what a pat is?!"

Saturday, October 1, 2011

Real Azerothian Heroes #16 Mr. Raid Nerf QQr

Ever notice that some of the loudest complainers have the least to complain about. The tears must flow!

Real AIE Genius #8 Mr. Live Meet-up Attender

We've got to go outside sometimes, might as well be to link up with fellow AIE folk.

Raising a Raider #5 The Wouldn't Work Jerk

GIMME GIMME GIMME! We so love those folks who can't be bothered to level a profession or at least acknowledge what we had to do to get it leveled. For a look at the buffs Gamu talks about go here. Also, be sure you're listening to the full episodes of Convert to Raid!

Saturday, September 17, 2011

Real Azerothian Heroes #15 Mr. AFK Raider

Credit for the idea of doing a "Mr AFK Raider" needs to go to a guildie I met at the Dragon*con AIE meet-up but I can't remember which one. Let me know.

Real Azerothian Heroes #14 Mr. Trade Chat Linker

Yay, The Instance is BACK! So from Show #243 Here's another RAH. There's a reason I do my best not to stay in major cities for too long.

Raising a Raider #3 Stratagy Tragedy

There should have been more catch-up work after coming home from Dragon-con. I always let my segments be played on their respective podcasts before posting here. ISP downfall took out one show last week, and illness another, but Convert to Raid stands tall! So here's this weeks installment.

Raising a Raider #2 The Level Lesson with the Lich King

BooBear asks for another installment of the lessons Lil Gamu learns while becoming a raider. Be sure you check out Convert to Raid for even more on raiding.

Real Azerothian Heroes #13 Mr. Mob Pack Skipper

I'm as guilty of this as the next tank. Shout out to my guildies who were along for the run that inspired this one.

Tuesday, August 23, 2011

Raising a Raider #1 The Mean Master Looter

BooBear took the mic and wasn't going to give it back til she got a raiding story. This one had an important lesson in knowing who you run with.

Real AIE Genius #7 Miss Spoiler Protector

This is another I have to share the credit with my wife. I can't believe I didn't notice it, in as how I almost assaulted a guy who tried to spoil Half Blood Prince for me.

Friday, August 19, 2011

Real Azerothian Heroes #12 Mr. BOA Smashadin

A full heirloom set does not equal, up, up, down, down, left, right, left right, B, A, select, start....A Shout out to AceRulz from AIE who happened to random into the same group with the "inspiration" for this one with me.

Real Azerothian Heroes #10 Mr. Clever Character Name

Some are clever, some are funny, some are lame, and only a few are against the Terms of Service.

Wednesday, August 3, 2011

Real Azerothian Heroes #9 Mr. C'mon Blizz

With the world full of so many experts, how is it there's so many problems that could be so easily fixed?

Real Azerothian Heroes SE#1 Monday Pug Raid Leader

This was a "Special Edition" I did for the guys over at Convert to Raid after some of them took me along on a Monday Night Raid. If you have any interest in raiding check out their show!

Real AIE Genius #5 Miss Movie Quoter

Geeks love a good movie quote. I will own my mistake...I said Cellulite instead of Celluloid. I'm human, when I'm not an Orc, Tauren, Goblin, Blood Elf, Troll, Undead, etc.

Friday, July 22, 2011

Real Azerothian Heroes #8 Wounded Hyjal Defender

Run those dailies enough times, you begin to ask, "How do these guys keep getting in trouble?" Side note....if my energy sounds down on this one, it was...did it after getting my daughter to bed after her first visit to the ER. She's fine now. Enjoy

Thursday, July 21, 2011

Real Azerothian Heroes #7 Mr. I've Got Mana for Days

Have to give credit to my wife for this one. She ran into it pugging on her shammy. Before you she wasn't the healer.

Wednesday, July 6, 2011

Real Azerothian Heroes #5 Mr. Bio Break Inventor.

Isn't it great that 3 little letters can cover so much.

Real Azerothian Heroes #4 Mr. Trade Chat Troll

I love trolls of the healing, tanking, or DPS flavors, but Trade Chat Trolls I have no use for. After a day of watching a rather nasty exchange in old channel 2, this gem came to be.

Real AIE Genius #3 Miss Pebble Reporter

Wait! What happened to #2? Well That was the same as real Azrothian Heroes #1, but with a different intro and outro. It was after that that I spun them into their own lines. Anyway, on to this nugget o' fun.

Noticed how often people were talking about pebble....and inspiration struck. Who doesn't want a pet rock anyway?

Real Azerothian Heroes #3 Elf Mailbox Dancer

Creeping us out since Vanilla....

Real Azerothian Heroes #2 Mr. Inn Musician

How about that band!

Real Azerothian Heroes #1 Mr. I've Been Here Since Vanilla

Who doesn't love that guy who's seen it all and knows everything?

Real AIE Genius #1 Guild Chat Topic Changer

We've had those moments when someone says something they shouldn't...Who rises to the call?
