I'm thinking that what should happen is that first we decide who wants to help with this idea, then they pick a segment they would love to do and then we all put in a sort of draft script to test it all out..

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.


... YES. I am loving this idea the more I read this post. Perfect!

yes trying i out on g chat sounds good! Ill start working on an intro segment and the commodore report.date for testing still to be decided

EDIT- Since I have no hope in hell of pulling off a Colbert ( the man is a god and I am a mere mortal okay) I have decided to stick close to my roots and instead pull off a Good News Week-esque news opening monologue deal ( for some examples youtube search Pauls opening Monologue Good News Week). I have had some success in doing things like this ( had to do an audio web broadcast for my IPT HSC and it worked wonders until it got turned off mid-cast due to a Michael Jackson joke..still had the whole class loling though)

Do we have a way from preventing certain people from talking in this chat channel? I'd hate for our programs to get trolled, but at the same time I want them to still be open to view for the public.

Um, that's a good question. I don't know how to police a station.

And I don't blame you, Gaz, Colbert wears some mighty big shoes to fill! XD

Right well I got to work and here are some example ‘ news stories’ that I came up with, this is only a first wave draft and please tell me what you think.

" I' ve got 99 problems but the truth isnt one of them, after all who needs that pesky truth?. This is the Commodore Report!"
* queue theme music!*

" Thankyou thankyou imaginary listeners! Yes this is the Commodore Report, our first broadcast in fact so you' re listening to a virgin broadcaster listeners, please be gentle. Just a bit of a heads-up for all of you with a ' sensitive disposition' this is not the news show for you! though since all of my listeners are muscle bound savages with anger issues that would make a Felguard envious, slutty dagger eared airheads, evil walking corpses with missing lower jaws and of course Goblins so being offensive is the least of my worries! Now what am I here for..oh yes news!”

“ Lets start off with something we all want to hear, the Horde war machine, if it could indeed be called a machine, its less of a machine and more of a bunch of shirtless bastards running straight into the enemy because apparently their muscles are more protective than steel armour. But yes the Horde has won several resounding victories against the Alliance despite us having the subtlety of a darkmoon faire clown with his dick out, with much of Kalimdor bowing before the might of said pants-less clown I mean er..Garrosh. Stonetalon Mountains, The Twilight Highlands, Ashenvale all have a stable Horde control and meanwhile over the ocean and far far away our rotting compatriots continue to hold much of Lorderon despite the six foot tall furballs of death that oppose them.”

“ To homeward news and the Bilgewater Tax Office has been forced to close after a new ‘ everything and all’ tax resulted in the grizzly murders of eighty six of their one hundred collectors, the surviving collectors were reported to have been abandoned in Orgrimmar naked with the Alliance symbol tattooed on their back and chest, and were then found in a mass grave outside of the city suffering from a severe case of ‘ axe to the face’ . The everything and all tax was implemented several months ago by our ignoble and absent Trade Prince Gallywix himself after he stated to the press that he required the increased tax funds for his solid gold, Hyjal sized statue of himself standing on a pile of macaroons giving passers by the finger that would be placed square in the centre of Azshara. As with everything ever stated by the fat old sod this idea garnered almost universal hatred from the Bilgewater People who kindly responded with their own suggestion ‘ piss off’ . The Life insurance polices for the now deceased tax collectors will put towards funding the research and construction of Shredder tax collection suits equipped with flamethrowers and rocket proof armour.”

“ In Orgrimmar Boss Mida, the leader of the Bilgewater delegation in Orgrimmar and the slums, has reported a twelve per cent increase in profit from the lucrative construction contracts offered for the building of the many Horde outposts and military bases that will soon be dotting Kalimdor. Her Tallness stated that this wave of contracts was only possible due to her ground breaking work with Horde relations and the reconstruction of Orgrimmar and that her efforts will enrich the Bilgewater Cartel as a whole. "

Thats all I have for now.

roflmao! Awesome!

My only suggestion is, just to play it safe, remove the "with his cock out" bit. I know there's a warning and the beginning but ya never know! Better to be safe than sorry. ^_^

Alright I'm gonna keep adding news posts in different posts simply because I want to keep this on the top of the forum list..

"So recently I've been hearing rumors of the Alliance planting spies within the ranks of the Horde and using that dirty abomination that was born one hot summer night because of an idiotic Elf queen who though 'hold on why don't we plumb the depths of this ancient utterly powerful well thingy and figure out how to harness its power despite the fact it will be akin to putting a giant 'free meal' sign above Azeroth for everything in the nether to see, yes thats bound to work out with no unfortunate consequences!', yes of course I speak of magic what do you want a cookie for figuring that out?

But yes the rumor mill, busy as it always is, has churned out this little curious spec and when I heard of this I immediatly sent a letter to everyone I knew and neither of them had any idea what I was talking about and told me to stop asking for naked pictures of their wives, well sod them! I'll just go back to staring through their windows..er where was I?

As I sat in my study, a roaring fire..roaring in front of me and a glass of brandy in my hand I thought 'what ho a conspiracy theory that I have not heard of or instigated myself to get back at that girl that stood me up the other night? I must find the truth!' so I put on my top hat and adjusted my mystery solving monocle like a dapper Gilnean and sprung into action and what did I find out dear listeners?

Nothing, a big steaming load of nothing swarming with dozens of nothings about to be lit on fire by a little piece of nothing who has nothing else to do but set nothings on fire and take shits..er nothings in other peoples dinner. There is nothing whatsoever to this gold damn rumor and anyone else who says otherwise deserves to have a giant rancid nothing dumped on his head"



...Holy shit that was long. Now for my remembering I present to you a list of potential joke points within news segments ( oh who are we kidding they're close to rants now), I will try and work these into news stories I promise.

1-the point- 'oh what point?' I hear you dear listeners screaming into the radio, prostate a- quiver to which I reply 'well listener the point is like my right hand, it beats the fuck out of me'..Yes as masturbation joke, swing and a miss moving on.

2-The Evil rant Now you see all these evil guys running around who's plan is either A- an extremely convoluted plan to destroy the world or B- a blunt and relatively straightforward plan to destroy the world, either of these options have stereotyped as 'the asshole way' by our proud fellow Hordians and as an asshole I am offended! Why cant I hold the world to ransom for Thralls collection of Blonde Human porn? or agree to save the world from evil demons then set half it on fire and still expecting respect and payment ( and wenches) with the infuriating infallible logic of a complete tosser'

3- the war rant "This whole war is about as pointless as wanking off a castrated dog, we wont get any thanks for it and the only reward we'll get is wrist exercise"

4-The Mida "Boss Mida so far is the only public figure I haven't found fault in, its like Tirion and Neutrality if Tirion regarded Neutrality with an almost sexual lust and Neutrality invited Tirion over to its Gold plated tower to flick Cashew nuts at poor people..at least thats what happened in MY head"

5- The Horde v Neutrality " Look Neutrality was a big delicious jam filled doughnut with creme on top and The Horde is a big pie with chocolate in one side and meat in the other and look at me dancing around the issue 'dancy dancy la de da' Alright lets skip to the point! Is being with the Horde good? YES! is it better than being Neutral? NO!

6-Paranoia! "Now a paranoid person, which I'm not one of regardless of what everyone says about me behind my back"

7-The end "Well The Commodore Report has finally rolled off my rigid, unfulfilled body and is now snoring face down into the pillow with only the promise of a bit part in a later segment as a spirited midnight quickie later on. So from my newsdesk of lies and fake truths this is the Commodore signing off!"

I dont feel sorry for you poor bastards having to read through my rambling crap..

ENJOY!

I have a feeling Snuffit will have selective hearing for this segment... she is very good at capartmentalizing. XD

But my gobs strongly /agree with #5. Can't wait to see where this goes down!

But yeah. Is there a way to add a permanent warning to a channel? ...Or should we do this on mumble/vent/some other thing? It might be good to have something with a more controllable area. That way we don't have a risk of being banned for foul language or something.

Yes, it would require some voice acting, but that could make it hilariously fun.

Eh I think a warning before each potentially lewd, crude and rude segment will be enough personally.

O.... M.... G.

Do you even know how big a Jim Henson fan I am? I literally have a Kermit tattoo on my calf. I'm a bit appalled that anyone would need to be told what inspired that theme! XD

That is to say... OMG LERVE.

Heh thanks for the support..and I thought it best to add a bit at the bottom to openly admit I took someones idea and ground it into paste before scooping out the yummy bits and fitting them in my idea..
