Voyages of Vanguard #47

The HIGHLIGHTS from show 47:

* Me and Luper talk about the recent patch and how cool the Mekalia event is!!

*I make Luper very uncomfortable by asking her to show me her PC stats. Even though I am very comfortable with my stats, raiders often have a hard time confessing their uhm, possible shortcomings. Please feel free to cut our conversation apart and make a funny segment out of it!

*Some Immersion Project suggestions!

Some trivia:

 1) Luper recorded, once again, from the inside of a jet engine. With a fan on. While monks chanted behind her.

 2) Luper said the "S" word TWICE. She is in the corner on a time-out right now.

 3) We recorded early enough in the morning to make us both sound kind of goofy once in a while. More than normal. Luper sounds like she smoked a carton of smokes, but she doesn't smoke.

 4) I might have been wrong about how many FPS our eye can see. See here.
 Here's the second part of the thingy. There, so the 4 grand you spent on that machine that gets 150 FPS was SOOOO worth it. I spent 1200 on mine and the rest of the 4k on beer.

The song of the show: Interesting story behind this amazingly beautiful song. No artist writes music like it anymore:

A lawsuit was filed in 2004 by the family of Solomon Linda seeking damages for the copyright of the song "The Lion Sleeps Tonight."  Mr. Linda had written and recorded the song in 1939 under the name "Mbube," which is Zulu for "The Lion." In 1952 he sold the copyright of "Mbube" to Gallo Studios, the company that produced his record, for 10 shillings (about 87 cents today).  He also got a job sweeping floors and serving tea in the company's packing house.   Born in 1909 in the Zulu heartland of Africa, Mr. Linda never learned to read or write, but he knew music and had the ability of writing lyrics.  He died in 1962 at the age of 53, with $22.00 in the bank.  His wife could not afford a gravestone.

Over the years, more than 150 artists have recorded the song under the name, "The Lion Sleeps Tonight."  The song has survived many versions; a jazz version, nightclub version, folk version, pop version, and finally a 1994 Walt Disney hit movie under the name "The Lion King."  Mr. Linda and his family should have enjoyed a very comfortable life, but instead, the family lived in Soweto with barely a stick of furniture, sleeping on a dirt floor carpeted with cow dung.  His eight children survived on maize porridge, known as pap.  When they passed a grade in school, their reward was an egg.  Two died as babies, one of malnutrition.

Solomon Linda's daughter, Ms. Nsele contends the family was hoodwinked by a South African lawyer, now deceased.  They have won their law suit, and Ms.Nsele commented,, " I was angry before.  They didn't ask permission.  They just decided to do anything they wanted with my father's song.  But now it seems we must forgive because they have come to their senses and realized they have made a mistake.  The Bible says you must try to forgive."  Her daughter Zandile corrected her by saying, "Not 'try'.  It says 'forgive.'"

In February of 2006 an undisclosed settlement was reached between Linda's heirs and Abilene Music, who held the worldwide rights.  The heirs received payment for past uses of "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" and an entitlement to future royalties from its worldwide use.  A trust has been set up to administer the heirs' copyright of the song.

'The Lion Sleeps Tonite' by coppertopper
Submitted on 2008-06-28 13:31:07 CST
Awesome to see the background behind this song. I immediately went into Karaoke mode when it started playing.

Now if Beau could just stop flirting with luper and step aside so us single guys could have a shot... ; )

Seriously, this podcast listener can only stand so much bad-morningshow-discjockey wannabee schlock, and Im past that point. But I really want to know about your experiences playing VoV, from Lupers experienced and knowledgeable perspective, and Beaus n00b experience, so that I can decide whether to re-up or not. Can we get on with the editing down to the good podcasting please???

Thanks?

Wait...ah screw it. Thanks for listening! :)

Gnomes heads have to be big to hold our massive brains. Awesome job on the cast as usual.

BTW: just joined VGbloodmages and joined the in-game chat channel but I think it's just me in there. It's cool though cuz I can pretend like I am in charge.

'Needing to sate my Vanguard fix needs' by Meithar
Submitted on 2008-06-30 02:46:30 CST
I have enjoyed the last few podcasts greatly, good job on all the interviews. I took about a month away from the game after my guild disentrigrated and have been taking a delve into Age of Conan. I am gearing up to get back into Vanguard and just heard some disturbing news on the forums.

It seems they are thinking of changing the Shamans soon. Perhaps ya'll (that's right I said ya'll ..... Texas / Arkansas born here) can get some more info into this and discuss it next time and or get some dev interaction into the topic. I really hope that the projected changes do not happen, I really love my Orc Hyatet Shaman as he is now.

Take care and keep up the interviews they have been alot of fun so far.

'Transitions and roleplay' by Mashidin
Submitted on 2008-06-30 08:06:50 CST
Hey guys, fun-to-listen-to podcast as always. Two things: as far as replacing the "Coming up next" or 'next up" transition statements for leading into the next subject I would suggest you use the great music fade-ins that pop up randomly in your casts as a device to move the conversation from one item to another. Set it up kind of like a late night talk show or the nightly news for example: "Next up, after the break...", "following this awesome music interlude/break/explosion!!..", "We have to break for some Maiden, but we'll be right back to talk about..." or some such thing. Me not so good with words but I'm sure you get the idea.

As for the other thing, it would be my honor to be your Nemisis, Beau. Yes I know I'm a Raki as well but I'm a Monk Raki..a Monk Raki gone bad. I'm envisioning me kind of like Lo Pan from Big Trouble in Little China and you can be Jack Burton only with out the 18-wheeler. just a thought, although I'm certain I'm at a loss as to what I'd do when ever we met. Dastardly emotes, blackmail you with incriminating screen shots? Who knows what plans I could hatch as a nemisis.

Anyways, you all keep up the great work.. and watch your back. dum duM DUUUUUUUUM.

'Of course!' by Mashidin

Why didn't I think of that?! Surely a dark elf would know better than a raki what to do with incriminating screen shots. I bow to the master criminal. /bow


'Meet me by the bike racks' by RandolphCarter
Submitted on 2008-07-02 11:28:24 CST
Mr. Turkey,

I'm seriously considering challenging you to a duel. I've listened to your latest podcast on the sly at work and you had me giggling like a school girl in my cubicle. My boss already thinks about as slick as sandpaper. This isn't helping much. Please keep the humor to a minimum or I'll be asking you to choose a weapon, sir.

And the sad thing is I’ve never played Vanguard.
