Final Update: Thanks for listening.

25 05 2010

Hey! Shim Here! I’m not sure if I can put this any better than Warez does, but “RL>MS”. The final straw for me was AVAN. That was the point where maple had stopped being a game for me. I cannot bring myself to play the game anymore, or even remotely touch the icon on my desktop, (partially because FURRY FANDOM has taken over my entire life.) and hasn’t been patched for at least 10 updates by this point..Though this isn’t about me.

Is amazing, that you all managed to stay faithful for us for so long, you put up with our constant delays, just to listen to half-baked information that you all heard months before the episode came out. You’d think we were Nintendo or something. You may be wondering why we decided to stop, of course, but all things have to come to an end someday. We decided that this end was the 6 month mark, and anything we could have possibly been covering back then, which was old news, would even be less relevant now.

I’m not as well spoken as Warez is, so this whole entire goodbye may come as a bit choppier than it normally is, but I want to give personal thanks to everybody who contributed, sent in their e-mails and v-mails to us, (We read them all on our own time, even if they never made it to the podcast), the guests, and especially Bag3l and Spazzcakes, for dealing with our unorganized mayhem all the time, and all of you listeners, for supporting us all the way, and continuing to be faithful to Aqua Road Radio, even when under new management by the end. And everybody who came to our parties, even if they weren’t much above “Cause chaos in the middle of henesys.”

Our time here was fun, and I really wish Warez, the man running this, could be the one to post this,

This has been Shim, telling you “Thanks for listening, happy mapling.” Signing off.

Episode 20 Wha?Who?…Huh?

26 05 2009

Long awaited and already outdated!
I got a little overworked working on my part of the script; worrying about getting it just right. But Shim finally cajolled me into just recording. I figured I’d better just to shut him up. It actually turned out pretty well, winging it a lot like Shrav and I used to with special guest, Erin.

Like in the previous episode were struggles. I was very nasally and breathy through large parts of it as I was still fighting off a bad head cold. There is hiss from Shim’s end, but I still overpower him with outrageous ssssssssssssssibalence at times. Erin seems a bit shy at first but really gets going later. We’ll get this podcasting thing down yet. But in the meantime you all can make fun of us as we continue to learn.

Hey guys, its shim talking…I’m sure warez is gonna kill me when he see’s this, but I’m gonna say, we haven’t recorded ep 20 yet… we’ve been been very busy recently.  School work for me, trying to bring my grades up >.<… Warez has been busy with work.  I’m going to say right now, we’re not dead.  We’re aware of the fact that we haven’t recorded yet, and we should soon.  We’ve just been really busy, please try to understand.  We’re gonna try to make ep 20 super super awesome!  but don’t quote me on that ^^

Episode 19 – Windbreaking!

27 12 2008

Delays for the Holidays,
Spazzy struggled with editing, I got sick….acute bacterial pnuemonia in the right lung. But with my antibiotics and yummy codeine cough syrup, I feel better, but it was besides the point as the episode had not uploaded so i couldnt have done anything anyway.

So heres our lastest long and rambly discourse with features old and new. Very new and interesting to many of you. We have as a guest one Chii, an entertaining young lady, so you’ll enjoy this. We get pretty loopy later on, so prepare yourselves to mock us. xD Stayed tuned for a special announcement after the playback finishes.

Like I said there are some quirks in this edit (a diff. one may upload at some point). Highlights of these quirks for you fans of minutae: From Minute 104 to 108 the show starts over in the background and it gets quite weird for 4 minutes! At Minute 140 Chii answers my question before I ask it. Shes a clever time traveller! During the vmail playback you can hear Shim and me laughing. I want to state clearly that this is at things we are typing to each other and not at the vmails. We’ve already listened to the vmails a dozen times by then and are thinking ahead to the next segment. I think this is obvious, but wanted to state it anyway.

So here it is warts and all….enjoy. And we hope your Holidays are going great and wish you a grand new year.

Official AquaRoadRadio Guild in Windia

24 11 2008

Yeah yeah I know we said we would never do this but……Well see many listeners have joined HS-Windia over the past months and while the attention was welcome by HS, there was a bit of friction. Not really negative, but HiddenStreet is a very purpose driven guild and listeners were joining just because they were listeners and not from any commitment to the HS mission. And life in HS really does require sticking to a strict Code of Honor. So to make life easier for all concerned….Shim (Shnoof) and I (MysticWarez) made an ARR guild (thanks to co-founders Spazz, Erin, sick and Winter.) We will still enforce legitness, but it should be a more relaxed atmosphere than HS. You are still free to apply to HS, but be prepared to meet and live up to the standards. The only requirement for the ARR guild is that you are a listener and post here on the blogsite once.

Upon a genius suggestion from IcyTheBandit, I am working on a Guild page here! Cleeeeck on the Guilds page……do it Nao!

Episode 18 – Good grief…Her again!

31 10 2008

Happy Halloween.  We were in the twilight Zone for this episode. You can tell because we’re kind of spacey and rambly in the beginning, but we get more coherent as it goes on.  Spazzcakes did really well at the transition editing, but struggled with volume equalization.  (Many people have told me that they notice the volume issues, but that it is acceptable as is. Therefore we will concentrate efforts on the upcoming episode, instead of trying to improve this one!)

This is another long episode. After I said we’d try to make them shorter. -_-  We cover Singapore, then there is a lot of listener contributed features.  Two Newbie Tips, a HotSpot, a Quest Corner, a Party Center, Bag3l’s newest Jukebox (ty Bag3l), another HotSpot, another Quest Corner and finally a ton of vmails and emails.

We need to make these things shorter….no really. xD

Episode 17 – Arsonist Fairies!

18 09 2008

Hello Listeners! I finally struggled all the way up the editing learning curve and got episode 17 online. We record over 3 hours of audio which i edited down to 2 hour and 50-something minutes. my work isn’t as good as Shravan’s was, but it is listenable.

This is a double upped episode. We start out covering the new Masteria expansion (yes its been that long.) Then we have DOUBLE HotSpots, a Party Centers, AND Quest Corners in one episode! Bag3l is back with another ARR Jukebox. So enjoy~!!

Sad news…Shravan out again.

16 08 2008

I’m sorry to announce that Shravan is on permanent (likely) hiatus.  He felt it was time to make the break.  His schedule was so busy already that he hardly had time for MS.  He will be concentrating on his last semester of college and getting his first job.   It is likely to be a long time before we see him again, if ever.

I however am no where near quitting.  I feel like I just got done with a break.  Also I did what grieving I needed to last time I think.  Maple is a lot like life. Things change.  People come into your life and leave it again.  Sadness and joy intertwined.  Time to move on.

I’ve already lined up a co-host for the next ep.  If you like him, let him know.  If not……lets hear some CONSTRUCTIVE criticism.   The script is shaping up and recordings are trickling in.  Let it be a flood!  If you’ve been working on something; finish it and send it nao!  I’m not stopping this time.  Gonna hit the ground running.

Episode 16 – Cherries & Tornados

21 07 2008

Hey guys! ^_^ We’ve finally got episode 16 up and running. We say it’s short, but really it’s like 2.5 hours long. >_> I think we’re becoming numb to the length of these things. o_O

Anyhooses, we’ve got quite an episode for you about all sorts of various things. There’s even a bit in there about private servers for those of you who are interested. We also have a Newbie Tip, a HotSpot, a Party Center, AND a Quest Corner all wrapped up in this episode. Bag3l came through as well and provided us with a 2nd installment of the ARR Jukebox, which, from what I’ve heard so far, you guys have enjoyed. There’s also a great explanation of the backstory of Masteria.

So we still like the T-shirt idea and we REALLY want to make it work, but so far, we haven’t gotten many responses from you guys. T_T So hurry up and get your vote to us if you haven’t yet! Just throw us a really quick e-mail that just says “T-shirts” in the subject and let us know what you think. Hope to hear from ALL of you. ^_^

All right then. Enjoy this episode guys. ^_^

Episode 15 – Newbie Tips Galore

30 06 2008

Hey guys! ^_^

First of all, let me apologize for all the delays incurred. We wanted to record on the 21st, but we had that whole Tespia thing we wanted to try out. In the end, it worked, so I guess it was a good thing, but due to scheduling conflicts, Warez and I weren’t able to record until this last Wednesday. I would have had this up by Saturday night, but Audacity decided to somehow change the name of the file and all the paths and not find the file when I only had another 1/2 hour left to edit.

So I gave up on Audacity and got/tried an new program called Amadeus Pro (yes, Amadeus is Mozart’s middle name) and it works BEAUTIFULLY. So I’ll definitely be dishing out some cash to get this (it’s not free, but it’s not like $599 like all those super professional applications).

Anyway, enough with my excuses.

This episode features…..surprise! Newbie Tips. Actually, that’s what it was supposed to feature, but the News took up like over half the time and by the time we got the the Newbie Tips we were pretty much like the living dead. We made a couple of predictions on Patch 0.57 (we recorded the night they were patching) and some of them came true. ^_^

Also, I ask you all to pay attention to the ending (somewhere around when I declare it’s time for the closing notes). We have a question for you guys that needs answering ASAP. =P

I hope you guys enjoy listening to it. ^_^
