The Avalon Song (Zafaria Remix by DJ Friendly)!


Sorry . . . I'm just excited because for the past few weeks I've been messing around with The Chez's Avalon Song. I emailed him after his song hit the world, and asked if I could remix his tune for fun, and he said YES!

I've now uploaded this remix to my Google Doc site where I keep all my remixes:

The Avalon Song (Zafaria Remix by DJ Friendly)

And, if you don't know what I'm talking about, here's a link to a few posts ago where I talk about the awesomeness that is The Avalon Song. I love the original, obviously, and I think it's really cool (and to be celebrated) whenever anyone in the community expresses themselves creatively like this. *round of applause for The Chez*

Anyway, I hope someone at least enjoys that remix as much as I had fun making it. :) hehe.

Happy Dueling!

Interviews, thanks, and new commercial!

I've been asked by a few other Wizard101/Pirate101 bloggers lately for interviews, and I thought I would share those with you in case you missed them.

1- Interview with Around the Spiral with Edward Lifegem
2- Interview with Housing Manual (formerly A Deadly Pirate)

Thank you both for your questions! We have such a kind and wonderful community. I really appreciate everyone's kindness. Thank you!

Just wanted to say that I've been happily playing Pirate101 and enjoying the heck out of Aquila. I'll be sure to post a follow up to Edward's questions about which world I liked best in the new expansion soon! After last weekend, I'm level 61 now and staring down the Labyrinth. I absolutely cannot wait to take on the Hydra and see what all the fuss is about with my own two eyes. :)

Also just wanted to link to the newest Pirate101 Commercial that's hitting the airwaves officially today (started a bit early last night).

I think it turned out great!

Happy Dueling!

Feeling Overwhelmed? Dude, just game! ;p

Heya! To say I've been ignoring my blog is a total understatement. Sorry about that. I've been feeling overwhelmed I suppose -- actually, this whole past year has been pretty overwhelming in general. You know you've got it bad when you start browsing pages like this instead of pages like this.

But to say I haven't had any time to game would be a total lie. Just to catch you up, I've now dinged 57 in Pirate101 on my Witchdoctor and entered Aquila, and of course, destroying Marleybone's version of the Death Star (or what have you) was extremely satisfying!

My Marleybone experience was super fun, and I loved riding around on my Pennyfarthing mount!

Best . . . mount . . . ever. But to be honest, right now playing Pirate101 for me just feels a bit like HURRY UP AND FINISH THE GAME! I need to get through it once on my own, and it's kind of weighing on me that I haven't been all the way through yet.

I will say that it feels pretty awesome to finally have a new ship though after steering around in that Marleybone Galleon for so long. Bring on the Aquilian ships! I love the design, and I love everything about them. (psst, you really should head over to the official Pirate101 fan sites to see if they're holding contests right now wink wink.)

And, to switch games entirely on you, over in the world of DC Universe Online, my character has hit CR 80, whoa . . . never thought I'd hit CR 80 . . . . I've been busily doing my daily missions trying to earn marks and get new gear. Currently that means splitting my time between Ace Chemicals and Stryker Island performing a couple quests for the steelworks foreman in each location until a grand total of 5 missions is reached for the week, and then you get a pretty challenging instance that awards you an awesome piece of gear and a slew of marks.

I'm looking more and more like a member of Daft Punk.

The past few weeks our static group has been having a heck of a time trying to take down the Judge in this insane Tier 3 instance. Last Sunday we pulled him down to 10 percent life and lost it. It's a frantic encounter that's full of complexity and something that has been a bit of an uber challenge for our group. In every game we've play (aside from Diablo 3), we've always run into one or two encounters that just stonewall the group for a few weeks, this is our wall lately.

ANYWAY, today is the last day of school for our kids, so THIS IS AWESOME! Not to be selfish or anything, but this bodes well for my blog. I would spend an hour and a half in the morning getting my kids off to school and now . . . MORE ME TIME! hehe.

So, hopefully I can blog a bit more here in the near future.

Happy Dueling!
