GOOOOD MORNING FHT! its me Gaz the eel coming to you live and direct from the middle of nowhere, a stinking, depraved garbage heap that I like to call my second home..but I'm not here to talk to you about Silvermoon am I? No I'm here to offer an idea to you kiddies!"

Right anyway...I come to you today my comrades in Mida servitude to present an idea..an idea that could be used by the guild to spurn interest in Mida and our heroic struggle..

Pirate Radio. ( rest of post cut to make room for master post..sorry)

MASTER POST
(WIP)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Name: None so far- open to suggestions
Broadcasting time:Once a week, most likely Friday or Saturday
Roles: So far me.
DJ codenames for volunteers- Gaz-Commodore ( the captain of this ship of subversive slammers)
_____________________________________________________________________

Content ideas! ( so far, all of these are open to discussion, debate and change so keep the ideas coming!)

1- Commodore Report-Starting off with a bit of news in a twisted Stephen Colbert type parody fest, headlines for the week including not just real news but faux made up deals designed to show Gallywix in a bad light and post Mida as the leader needed for the Bilgewater Cartel!.

2- The View parody ( a merger of point 3 and 2)- Once again I have no idea what the view is...but from what I hear on this thread it sounds very good

"And of course there will be the latest stories like 'How to know when your ruler is a idiot despot', tragic stories about Goblins foisted aside and messed over by Gallywix (with prizes rewarded to them and the viewers/listeners!), and OF COURSE the latest fashion tips and celebrity upkeep!"- Snuffit

4- The weather- self explainitory though I think it would be awesome to do something akin to Ollie Williams from Family Guy ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jG0k1xaj87M Could be better quality but still)

* NOTE* Ollie Williams parody could be included in a BUNCH of stuff

5- Commercials- Simple, we get people to send in ads they want and we post them..

6- Contests- {Coming soon}

7- A radio play- something like war of the worlds I'm assuming? MOAR DISCUSSION PLZ

8- Alex Jones- No idea who that is...MOAR DISCUSSION PLZ

9- A Grind my Gears segment- simply a rant about stuff ( also from Family guy- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dHtRnOXXZ0w) DISCUSSION PLZ
_____________________________________________________________________
Advertising and getting it out there!

1- Forum advertising- { coming soon}
2- Trade- { coming soon}
3- HNN- { coming soon}

*bbzzzkkt* Sydney Briar is Alive... Sydney Briar is al*bzzkt*

Gaz... I have to tell you...

This is genius.

Pirate radio is so perfectly Gobliny, so very FHT, it must be done.

There is so much that could be parodied here too. Talk shows, Orson Welles, old 30s style story radio programs... dear Gold, the potential...

This has to happen.

Yes.... yes.... YEEEEESSSSSS!

/slams a solid slap on Gaz's back.

This is brilliant! I love this idea, and it is a wonderfully goblin-y one. (Snuffit right now is demanding to be the next Oprah, but feel free to ignore her. It's not THAT kind of talk show, after all.)

This sounds like it would be SO much fun!

Idea list! Would be sweet to have as many of these as possible XD

Oprah Style - talk show -self improvement, interviews

Alex Jones Style - Investigative news/talk show

Old Time Radio Show Style- War of the Worlds, The Shadow, subversive storytime

Weather Man - "Comin at ya from tha Sunshine Chopper! Looks like it'll be hot, dry, and sunny today in Durotar today, with a chance of sundown eventually...."

Stephan Colbert Style - subversive parody

Commercials!

Contests?

Alright its time for draft idea 1.0..just some general..kinda patch notes and the framework of this glorious idea! ( in dot points..)

1- Broadcasting Schedule- I'm thinking once a week during either Friday or Saturday ( as those are the days I know for sure I have free)

2-Advertising the broadcasts- Now advertising the broadcasts itself I had three rough ideas for this. 1- The Wyrmrest Forums, 2-Trade chat ( and also advertise broadcasts both a few days before they are due and a few hours before each one) and 3- We use the very well known HNN to do a story about strange broadcasts before the first broadcast is due to the begin and a story after the last broadcast ends ( more on the stories later)

3- Content:News- well as this is meant to be not just entertaining but also have an underlying political motive I suggest a news portion of things happening around Goblin kind with both real news stories and...slightly exaggerated items portraying old Gallywix in a bad light ( blaming him for things etc)

4-Content:Guests- GUESTS! prominent members of the anti-Gallywix movement for one which we can use once again to push the political agenda who after a brief interview can answer call ins from listeners.

5: The end?!- yes I already have an idea for the end ready..A gook like Gallywix wouldnt let a pirate station like this continue badmouthing him and to enrage people more HE causes the end of the broadcasts via a raid ( still details)

Thats all I have so far..POST IDEAS ITS BRAINSTORMING TIME MY FRIENDS!
( I will add ideas to the first post later)

I like the Stephan Colbert idea I love that man..he is one of my idols. Commercials we could do as well but I dunno I would feel like we would almost be stepping on some toes there maybe ( HNN has been around forever and advertises a lot of stuff for guilds etc)

Contests work as well.

Thats it I'm adding all the ideas so far to the master post

I definitely don't want us stepping on the toes, HNN rocks. With commercials I was thinking more like silly pretend ones, although come to think of it I kind of doubt pirate radio would have commercials at all, huh?

I can SO see Gaz doing the Colbert thing! This fills me with squee! XD

The Story Radio Show idea mostly comes of my love of old school Detective, mystery, and sci-fi radio shows of the 1930s -1950s, it may be a little out there. Maybe Rou could put something together every so often but not regularly.

Oooh, this idea sounds really cool! Already wondering what Zissele could possibly contribute... maybe a radio cooking show (if those even exist)? (... actually even if they don't exist that might be pretty funny)

Eh, even if she doesn't get a show, if there's something she could possibly do behind the scenes, I'm sure she'd be willing to do it... as long as it doesn't involve technical stuff.

Zissle, ZISSLE. Instead of Oprah... LETS DO 'THE VIEW'. Goblin style! (...which isn't too far off the actual View, really.)

Yeah, Snuffit is loving the talkshow idea. Her head is getting very big. And of course there will be the latest stories like 'How to know when your ruler is a idiot despot', tragic stories about Goblins foisted aside and messed over by Gallywix (with prizes rewarded to them and the viewers/listeners!), and OF COURSE the latest fashion tips and celebrity upkeep!

/cackles as she rubs her hands together.

We could use two more people for it, to make it really 'view' like, but that might be a little much to coordinate.

And Gazeel would make the perfect Colbert. Especially considering that the tongue-in-cheek would fool some people into thinking that it's Gallywix support! (Seriously, everytime I see a republican go into it acting like it's a serious interview only to be surprised.... /facepalms. Do any of these guys watch his show before deciding whether or not to be interviewed by it?)

Oh dear, Alex Jones... sorry, I'm on team Young Turk LOL.

The Young Turks vs. Alex Jones Part 1
The Young Turks vs. Alex Jones Part 2

But, especially based on these videos, Jones is likely more goblin-y. I could do something on Fridays possibly since that's my day off, and my character Isvalbard always wanted to be a political pundit. Brumley could easily do a religion / cultural show too.

Oooooo Shuchirch, Brumley's father, used to be a fortune teller before he... well, kind of became a mad hobo living in Mt. Kajaro. He's moderately sane now though, so I could easily see a fortune teller show, or at least commercials... think Lady Cleo =P

Barwin, my hunter, could do a Bear Grylls Goblin vs. the Wild show, or possibly a nature show. Hell, he could even do a hobby show since he lived alone on the Lost Isles for so long, and enjoys collecting bugs.

Like...like...like and like!

I do love the idea of a Goblin v Wild show especially if it plays on the Bear Grylls 'go to move' of drinking your own piss..( except of course we change it from drinking your own piss...)

EDIT- I'm also thinking that since we have a lot of content ideas and if we can flesh most of these out we should stagger them from week to week ( keep a couple of key segments and then mix and match the rest)
