Do you want to know what scary is? Well for this halloween we are doing a few scary things!
First! We will be having the show on Friday night at around 10pm central for Control Point, and 12pm central for The Shaft. How is that for scary?!
Also, talk about scary.. look at that photo.. what could it mean? Find out soon..
Be sure to catch the full show with the Chaps from Hat Films! You can subscribe to the shaft via iTunes, or listen directly from the site: http://www.theshaftpodcast.com
Here is some preshow footage! Enjoy!
SKYBLOCK SKYBLOCK!! Eric & Brent on SKYBLOCK!!!
Eric finished the bts of We built this town, and it is now viewable on youtube. You’ll get a glimpse of what it took to film it. You can also get a closer look at the tattoo and all the sets that were used, including the huge green screen stage.
We were talking last night about starting to do more videos in the future, and more songs. There are already a few in the pipe, and then hopefully we have some surprises coming up at the end of the year as well.
I also want to give a bit shout out to ToastedJelly who has been dealing with moving our servers from one host to another, which is no easy task. Also, our new server wants to start low on ram and ramp up. It’s common. Ever host we’ve been with has done the same thing. So, please bear with us as we get the ram increased to what we need to make sure the server is not laggy. And if I hear of ANYONE giving TJ a hard time about it, don’t be surprised if I ban you. None of this was his doing, and he’s doing everything he can to make it a smooth transition for all the players. Seriously, he’s been fighting hard to get more ram in to start with.
Hopefully we should have it up soon.
Oh yeah.. and you did vote today didn’t you? Only 10 days left… that means 10 more votes from you!! <3
Thank you all that have voted today, and seen our new video and produced minecraft content that we get to enjoy as well, and of course the whole Mojang Team who has created this game that was so incredible it sparked a microcosm that is now a megacosm and put us all together in the same room. Well as close as you can get separated by the array of tubez in the way.
Speaking of minecraft and being together… This weekend, on The Shaft, we’ll be talking with Paul Soares Jr again and see what he’s been up to since we last spoke with him and what he has planned for the future. Pretty sure we’ll slip in some minecon talk as well.
Join us at 3pm central on Sunday (Or earlier) for The Shaft, and be sure to vote for us daily for the podcast awards!
We’re trying to figure out a way to do this without it becoming some sort of spam fest. The Voting for the podcast awards has opened, and it’s going for 12 days, and you can vote once a day! So, PLEASE, vote, Once a day!
I don’t think there’s anything we get except for a little extra press, which always helps.
Anyways, head on over to the podcast awards, and vote for The Shaft, under the Gaming section!
We released the new Minecraft music video. Haven’t heard if notch likes it yet, but seems that a fair amount of folks are enjoying it! Let us know how you feel with a comment at the bottom of the video. [Video: We Built This Town]
We have also been nominated for the Podcast Awards, in the category of gaming! Voting starts tomorrow, and you can vote once a day - EVERYDAY for 2 week. We will try to keep the twitter spam to a low rumble, but we are very excited.
Our good friends over at dealnews.com is sponsoring the DWPP with an 80 port switch so we will have plenty of room for everyone to plug into!
If you haven’t heard of dealnews.com, then you’ve probably been living under a rock somewhere. They have been able to find me enough deals that it’s one of my few daily bookmarks. Highly recommend you go see what they have to offer, and be prepared to pull out your wallet, because you WILL find something that is a great deal, and you have to have it.
There are going to be a lot of great events at the DWPP, and so far, it’s turning out to be one of the biggest Cons we’ve hosted. [Click to see Full Schedule] Here is just a bit of what we have planned:
TF2 2v2: Pick your team mate and we’ll load up the server with Cyber-Punk and then the fun begins! Who knows.. maybe you’ll find a spy in the discotheque!
CP: After Dark - You know what that means. Some crazy TF2 action.
Rock Band - If we have enough teams, there will be a tourney. If not, just a lot of fun Rock band action.
Ruggbys Trivia - We’ll eat lunch on Saturday at Ruggbys, a local sports bar. They have a trivia system, so if you have an ipad or iphone, download the free NTN trivia app so we can have plenty of trivia boxes to go around!
SC2 - We’ll be running some Star Craft 2 events as well for people who have a copy of this game.
WizWar - Wes will be running his world famous WIZ WAR! Sponsored by @joehills
TFC - Robin Walker from Valve has given us 24 keys for TFC, so we’ll get an awesome 12v12 match going!
We Built This Town - Release Party & Birthday Bash to celebrate One year of THE SHAFT!
Minecraft Resource Gathering - The Makers Local 256 will be hosting a minecraft gathering tourney with software they built to keep track of everyone’s resources!
Board Games - All weekend long you’ll be able to play some of the board games you’ve never heard of. There’s always fun to be had with these gems.
Minecraft Build - We will have a server up all weekend long where you can go in and build to your heart’s content.
We hope that this sounds like a lot of fun, because I know we’re all super excited, and can’t wait for the first arrivals!! Which oddly enough are going to be some of our Canadian brothers and sisters. I guess they can’t wait to leave that country or maybe the Mounties have developed some incredible transportation system.
See you all in just a few days!
