Home can be anywhere

When I first started playing World of Warcraft I did what most people do I rolled a hunter. Granted mind was a Dwarf not a Night Elf like most people. Even two mouths after launch in January of 2005 I could see there were way to many Elves in the game. Something that hasn't really changed since. I got to level 52 by June but between my computer have its power supply being hit by lighting and general burn out I decide to hang up my gun return my bear to the wild and let my Dwarf live out the end of his days with the Goblins in Tanaris.

I love that hunter dearly but he was just a character in a RPG like so many others I have played over the years. Sure I grouped with him, even had him in some guilds but all and all. I soloed most of my way to the 50's. And when I started getting quests to go into places like BRD and all the other Blackrock instances. They sounded bigger and more remarkable than anything I had let seen.

Four years after being left behind once my Dwarf hunter is once again sitting and enjoying his time. Now he sits in the shadow of Nax dreaming of killing Arthus with his Bear still at his side. He is unlikely to have that honor just like he didn't ever make it into Blackrock Mountain, or the Black Temple. But as grunt in the Alliance he does what he can to help. Some people strive always for greatness and when they don't get here they aren't happy. However It important ever character know its place in life.

opening music found kinda

I found the music I was looking for and it looks a bit out of my skill set to perform right now. =( There's nothing wrong with knowing one's limits. But this has lead me to looking for Open Source copies of Abblasen by Gottfried Reiche. Trying to find a clear answer on who owns copyright is handled with classical music.

Here is what it sounds like if you're interested.

Also, taking some love from the John Bachelor Show, this is what I would like to use as an exit music. Its a piece from 1929 played by Ray Noble and Sung by Al Bowlly. Al Bowlly was killed during the Battle of Briton.

My hope is to make the sound bed of my podcast song different than other Warcraft podcasts as well. Anyway, not much else to say other than boo to trying to figure out copyrights on 80 and 300 year old music.

Opening Music

How things start matter. And for a podcast, having music is important. With my other preparations, I have been writing some opening music something in the style of the news magazine Sunday Morning On CBS. Hope its turns out well. Only time will tell, it's my hope to make something everyone can enjoy.

Something different

It's my hope is that the Podcast that this blog was created to serve will be something different than the normal Warcraft Podcast. Right now, I'm still writing notes and would like to create a library of podcasts before I put any out so I will be able to update every week. This will not be a news podcast but rather will be looking at themes within the game how they reflect on us as a people. And also it is my hope to have a regular section talking about what I feel is the best to level different reputations.

Hope to see you all there.
