Star Wars Edge of the Empire - Galaxy Is Ours 12-21-13

I've been having a bit of trouble lately with uploading the last session of my Edge of the Empire RPG campaign to Dailymotion.  I've contacted support and am working on the problem.  I figure in the meantime, I can at least offer the audio file for those who want to listen to it.  Hopefully, we'll get the videos loaded soon.

***Update***

Hey, look!  I fixed the issue.  Also, I forgot to press record on the most recent session, so there might not be a new one for a little while.

And now I hold the *.mp3 just out of reach to taunt you!

The Amazing Adventures of Captain Farr Novarider and the Wild Horses - Episode 10 - The Return of Aislyn Apehlion

The re-release of Episode 10 of the Amazing Adventures of Captain Farr Novarider and the Wild Horses is here!  Tonight's episode The Return of Aislyn Aphelion.  In which and old enemy returns. Will our heroes manage to hawk the ancient alien artifact they legally procured from Baron Helion? Will they manage to outrun the enigmatic villainess? Will Reagan give two craps? No, Not really, and not a chance.

But first, a quick update on Season 3.  It's ready!  Kind of.  So here's the deal: I'm finishing up converting the episodes into *.mp3 and *.mp4 formats, and then it's just submitting for copywrite (which really won't delay anything).  So what's the hold up?  Money.  The reality is that because of a move and the holidays, I'm broke and need to wait until afterwards in order to afford more advertising.

My promise though, is that these episodes will begin to release on July 2nd.  I should have no problem getting them out by then, and worse comes to worse, I just won't be able to advertise them as much as I would like to.  If you want to help out, you can always click the donate button right over there.  No... Up more.  No... Look - look where I'm pointing.  Above the... NO! IT'S RIGHT THERE!

*Sigh*  What ever.  Just have your free *.mp3.

Holy crap!  It's the re-release of the Eighth episode of the release for the Amazing Adventures of Captain Farr Novarider and the Wild Horses.  Who would have thought?  Tonight's episode is: the Battle for Turgel.  In which our heroes must rush to the aid of a small resistance group fighting against a tyrannical Baron.  Because he's a jerk and that's what heroes do.

Star Wars Edge of the Empire - Galaxy Is Ours 11/30/2013

It's the totally cool 11-30-13 session of the Star Wars Edge of the Empire campaign - Galaxy Is Ours.  Your host and gamemaster are Devin Peters; and the players are Shawn Meads as B1-33p "Bleep," and David Sanders as Maria Delgaza.

As a note, this might be the last recorded session for awhile.  Skype has seen fit to prevent any 3rd party recording software from being used, so I have to figure our a solution.  I'm told that Skype has something built in, but that it costs money.  I've also looked into Mixcraft, but it looks like I need a special set-up.  Until I can get this issue sorted, the sessions won't be recorded.  Sucks for you.

Also as a note, Part 3 is primarily us just discussing character advancement. You can give it a skip if you want to.

I'm happy to present my first Star Wars Edge of the Empire RPG campaign I'm calling Galaxy Is Ours.  I'll be your lovely Gamemaster for the evening, and Shawn Meads (my sole player) is B1-33p - better known as "Bleep."  Currently in service of Loghk the Saint - a Hutt known for his benevolent ruthlessness - Bleep has been tasked with obtaining a package that Loghk wants for himself.  Can Bleep survive my machinations?  Listen and find out.

News Flash! Operation Dancing Queen

For those who haven't seen my last few pissy tweets, Blip has decided to shut down my channel as it isn't receiving enough views for their preference and they hate puppies.  What does this mean for the series?  Well, I certainly haven't busted my ass off for the last three years to just let the Amazing Adventures of Captain Farr Novarider and the Wild Horses die.  I don't care how few of you there actually are, I'm at about 90% completion of the final season and have planning done for the series finale.  I am not going to just give up.

The "U" in Enjoyment

It is a popular hyperbole in my generation and those following to label something as being "the worst ever."  In reality, we love this exaggeration.  Websites, movies, video games, television shows, books, and songs aren't safe from this over-amped embellishment.  Entire Websites, movies, video games, television shows, books and songs are, in fact, dedicated to finding and condemning these offenders of the senses.  But are they really the worst ever?  After all, we do talk about them.

Even I will admit to being guilty of being asked about any teen schlock-buster, rolling my eyes and saying, “Psh.  Hunger Games?  More like Boring Games.  Am I right?”  But the reality is Hunger Games wasn’t all that bad.  Certainly it had troubles in film-work and issues with characters and actors, but at least I remember it.

Let’s take example from a movie that absolutely everyone would agree is a terrible movie, Plan 9 from Outer Space.  In this movie, an alien race visits the Earth and finds that the human race is becoming too destructive.  They decide to enact the titular Plan 9 (although what happened to plans 1-8, I don’t know), in which they raise the dead from their graves to get the human race’s attention, resulting in chaos and eventually the aliens literally blowing themselves up in the skies over LA.  Sounds convoluted?  Absolutely.

Plan 9 is largely considered one of the worst films of all time.  The film plays almost as a check list of things poor movie-making.  Strings clearly visible on models?  Check.  Plot points introduced at the climax of the narrative?  Check.  A nonsensical mish-mash of both horror and science fiction tropes?  Check.   Boring and repetitive dialogue?  Check. 

Other examples of terrible films include Manos the Hands of Fate.  A movie which I’ve seen dozens of times now and still can’t recount the plot.  Yet I love that the film decides to play one repetitive piece of music whenever Torgo – the villain’s mysterious sidekick – decides to walk three steps.  Eegah was a vehicle for squirrel faced teen idol who – as far as I can tell – insisted that his character have a sweet dune buggy and a pretty girl friend and he can sing – but not actually so dub over his voice – and he’s strong and he’s smart and he can beat up a cave man (no really).  Even Troll 2.  A movie entirely devoid of trolls deserves mention.

Yet, we remember these movies.  They are legends in the field.  In fact, I would recommend doing yourself a favor; get some friends together with a couple of pizzas a few drinks and watch these movies late at night.  They are hilarious and you will not be disappointed.  Laugh as they Plan 9 tries to pass a short balding chubby guy off for the tall gaunt Bela Lugosi with a voluptuous head of hair and as actors bump into the very clearly cardboard tombstones.  Yell at the screen as the kid in Troll 2 finally – FINALLY – figures out half way through the movie that the town of “Nilbog” is Goblin backwards.

For every truly excellent film out there, there are many more countless bad movies.  I personally have seen many movies, both good and bad.  I can honestly say that I have an equal love for cheesy movies as I do for movies like Blade Runner, Casablanca, and The Third Man.  So what are really the worst films of all time?  In my own experience, they are the truly boring, banal, boiler plate movies.  I even have trouble finding examples to think of simply because no one (including myself) remembers them.  And that is the greatest offense a movie can make.

It's Update Time

I just realized that I had been rather quite, both on the blog as well as my Twitter account (aside from my disturbing plan to sell bumper stickers).  I wanted to let everyone know my gratitude for your continued visits to the site, as well as welcome any new comers.  There aren't many of you, but it's still more people than have seen any of my previous projects (and now I feel down).

The Third Season of The Amazing Adventures of Captain Farr Novarider and Wild Horses has been coming along much slower than anticipated for a number of reasons.  One being life, another being that the episodes are a bit longer in general, but I'm also putting much more work into them to make sure that they're better quality. I felt really good about the Second Season, and want to bring the same quality - if not better - to this season that I did that one.

At this point, Season Three is about eighty-percent complete.  I still have to do some sound effect and musical layering for two episodes, and do the final review to fix a few writing issues as well as make sure the general quality is good, as well as complete the artwork for the title cards.  Once that's done I'll have it here and on my blip page as soon as I can.

This will be the last full season of the series, as I do want to move on to other projects.  For those fans who have listened to the series since the beginning, I can't thank you enough.  You may be silent, but I know you're out there and I hope that you'll stick with me to the end of this endeavor and onto to future ones.  I already have plans in the works for my next few projects, and I'm really excited to face the new challenges that they bring me.

Random Aside

If I were smart - actually smart - I would have gotten into the bumper sticker game ages ago.  Figure $0.05 per unit to produce, marked up to $0.50 for retail, for a single profit per unit at $0.45.  A single lot consists of 500, for a profit of $225.00 per lot.  See where I'm going with this?  A conservative target sales quota for a single product (or SKU) would be 4,000 lots.  That's a total profit on a single SKU of $900,000.00.

Best part?  No politics.  Complete and abject mercenary production.  I could be simultaneously produce the equivalents of the COEXIST sticker as well as the Calvin urinating on the COEXIST sticker.  People ultimately wouldn't know or really even care.  How many of you honestly put research into the political morality of Big Bumper Sticker - show of hands?  You; in the back.  Put you're hand down.  We know you're doing it ironically.

Speaking of irony:

[Insert Eloquent Quote Here]
   --Fatuous Jack ass

That bumper sticker would easily get double the figures I came up with above due to the irony.  Being a member of nerd culture, I know we're vulnerable to anything nostalgic.  The TriForce (marked up for licensing fees) would net double as well.

Of course, no amount of money would cover the amount of alcohol and therapy bills I would need to cope with the fact that I'm making a living off of bumper philosophy - easily the lowest brow form of dialogue in existence.

The Best Day Ever

It's Pi Day! Few other days are so worth celebrating than Pi Day. What did Columbus do? He stole a map from Portugal to prove something pretty much everyone had already figured out centuries before. Valentine's Day was created to help out the failing greeting card industry. But Pi Day? The irrational constant Pi shapes grand structures and monuments. Only the first 39 digits of pi are needed to calculate the circumference of the visible universe with an accuracy of merely the width of a single hydrogen atom. Albert Einstein was born on Pi day. And without the number Pi we wouldn't have delicious blackberry filled baked goodness.
