Pimp thyself my fellow junkies!

  • Avatar of Arioch Morningstar

    Have a blog? A podcast? A twitter account you want people to follow? This is the place to pimp it out!

    I know many of us have found one another within the Social Media sphere, but I figured centralizing might be a good idea, so I’m starting this thread. We’ll see how it goes.

    Here’s where you can find me & mine:

    Blog: http://sadock76.tumblr.com/

    eMail: arioch@scottsigler.com

    Twitter: @sadock

    Skype: podiobook_pimp
    -if you send me a contact request with no note on Skype, I’m going to assume you’re a webcam whore. Include a note, please.

    Oh, and that’s right, I actually have an ongoing show now. Some of you may have heard of it. It’s called TUESDAY TERROR and comes down through the primary Sigler feed fortnightly. I’m always looking for quality fan fiction based on, in, or around the Siglerverse. Full details on how to submit your story, as well as a few FAQs & common mistakes, can be found at scottsigler.com/tuesdayterrorsubmissions

    I think everyone needs a place to pimp themselves.

    Just an FYI though, I think you need to be mutual friends on Twitter to be able to DM Frown

    Well, I write a serial (would podcast, but I don’t have the voice for it) – Mirrorfall, not very violent/gory and doesn’t contain much horror, but it’s geeky urban fantasy (which makes up at least a little for the lack of chicken scissors).

    I have tried to DM but like Gmork said, sadly if you are not following me, I cannot DM you.

     all you do is type in d @username and it works just fine. No worries. Spammers don’t bother with the TrueTwit verification, and I always look at the actual twitter page of folks before I block them.

    Spammers are fairly obvious, and I’ve found that most junkies are as well Cool

      Ask ten of your friends. Don’t judge it yourself. We all think we sound like crap. We need more geeky urban fantasy in the podosphere. Seriously. The only one I can think of off the top of my head that’s any good is Lester’s Metamor City.

      Or if you’re *really* shy, give it to a friend and let them podcast it. You’ve seen (and heard) what Scott has done giving his content away through RSS and on PB.com. It’s the way to go. Use creative commons to your advantage. Decent rigs are cheap. It’s the time you put into editing that really makes the difference.

      If you have a good story, get it up somehow. Remember those famous words: "Fear is the mind killer." Don’t let your lack of confidence in your voice inhibit your aspirations. Of course, if all you want to do is post your stories as a hobby, that’s cool too. I just got the impression that you would do more, but you were using your perception of your voice as an excuse to hold you back.

      Think of the solution, not the problem. Gorram, I’ve been using that an awful lot lately. Damn you Goodkind!

     I was actually referring the pastry princess portion and the question mark was supposed to amibuize the GirlCo part.

     Given the way SQ has her sig structured it was just difficult to do what I wanted to do quickly. I’m sure you’ve since seen what I tweeted about someone else *coughs* IAM *end cough* implying that GirlCo was not knowing that GirlCo ALWAYS had power, and plenty of it. So the idea that they could be weak is ludicrous. Now, they might appear so at times to lure some helpless man into a trap, but the reality is something altogether different.

    Let me know if you want to see more…

    Proving Grounds
    Lightening split the sky and rain poured down on the four gray figures huddled together on the hillock overlooking Villers-Bretonneux, a small French town was nestled in a valley surrounded by once verdant fields, fields that were now churned into a mass of near unrecognizable wasteland.

    The Germans steady advance across the French countryside paused just long enough to occupy the small village to be used as a staging base for their push to Amiens, only 30 kilometers further to the west.  Allied command was convinced that were Amiens to fall, the Huns would be unstoppable.  The year was 1918 and war had raged across the countryside for years. For many of those years the valiant soldiers of the ANZAC, or Australian and New Zealand Army Corp had fought alongside the French army in an effort to stop the German onslaught, holding the German military’s advance. 

    The four soldiers had adorned their drab green fatigues with bits and pieces of the local foliage allowing them to blend perfectly into the vegetation.  To see them there, they almost seemed to sway in time with the bushes that surrounded them.  One of the men raised his eyes to address the rest of the group; the three pips on his epaulette the only thing distinguishing him as a captain and the mission leader, Captain Ross.  Using a stick, he traced the basic layout of the village into the mud of the ground.

    "Alright gents, this is it.  Just remember your training and you’ll do fine.  Our mission is to eliminate Field Marshal Horst, the German bastard who orchestrated the brutal occupation of the quaint French village you see before you and by doing so clear the way for the retaking of the town.  The main force Aussie and French troops are planning to roll in here at O-dark thirty.  We’ve got to eliminate Horst before that happens.  We’ll be approaching the town from the south.  That means taking out sentries here, here, and here.  To cover our action, main artillery will begin shelling the north end of the town." 

    He poked at the ground with the stick, indicating the targets.

    "After which, we’ll work our way to the Hotel Mercure Saint Quentin en Yvelines Centre." Captain Ross’ face had twisted into a grotesque mask as he tried in vain to wrap his mouth around the strange name.  Grinning, he continued, "Bloody French names.  Intel indicates that hotel as the target’s most likely location.  Once there, we do him.  Questions?"

    Private Brandt’s small voice split the silence, "Sir, how many sentries do we have to remove?"  Brandt had come from Sydney and was a thin, wiry, unassuming sort of fellow.  His uniform appeared to hang loose, almost as if they were still on a hanger.  The gave the small man an even weaker appearance but the rest of the team knew better.  They had trained with him for months and his muscles were strong as cords of steel.

    "A total of six," the commanding officer replied, "That means each of you’ll be taking out two of them."

    Private Thomson spoke up, "How much resistance should we expect once we enter the village?"  In physical appearance, Thompson was virtually the polar opposite of Brandt, looking nothing so much as like a great bear, and a cuddly one at that, with a cherubic face and ready smile.  He had come from Wellington where he had spent his youth herding sheep.

    "Heavy." The Captain’s response was immediate and unwavering.  "Any other questions?"

    The last member of the team raised his head and locked eyes with Captain Ross.  Private Bennett was neither small and wiry like Brandt, nor abnormally large like Thompson, but somehow seemed to carry an air of professionalism and intensity that emanated from his entire being.  At this moment, the intensity radiated out from his eyes, a wellspring of barely contained power and focus.  Private Bennett took a deep breath, squared his jaw and spoke.

    "We won’t let you down Cap."  His words seemed to sum up the feeling and intent of the entire team as they all nodded at his words.

    "See that you don’t.  Remember where you are.  This German bastard Horst was at Bullecourt last year.  We lost thousands there.  It’s time for some payback."

    Private Bennett walked up to the edge of the hill they had been behind and lay prone on the cold wet ground, the smell of grass and mud filling his nostrils.  He held his British made Lee-Enfield rifle loosely in his hands as he calmly sighted down the barrel at the city, a mere 75 meters away.  Bennett had been a hot shot constable back in Melbourne.  On the fast track for promotion, he was everyone’s pick as ‘most likely to succeed’ in whatever he chose to do.  Now he found himself at war.

    Captain Ross moved from one soldier to the next, ensuring each of them was at the ready position.  He took the time to identify each of their targets and give words of encouragement. 

    Kneeling down next to Bennett, he whispered, "Just like in training, aim, breathe, hold, and squeeze."

    Bennett said nothing as he had already slowed his breathing in preparation.  He had once heard that expert snipers actually pulled the trigger in between heartbeats, reducing the chance of any internal motion pulling off their aim. 

    The rain continued to fall, forming puddles around his still form, much longer and he’d be lying in a pool of it.  The German soldier in his sights was standing on the roof of a small house on the outskirts of the village, his counterpart on the ground below him.  Although he had been tempted to aim for the man’s head, his training bade him to shoot for the target’s center of mass.
    They waited in silence.  A loud explosion was heard in the distance followed immediately by a second, and a third.  Captain Ross whispered the word ‘engage’ and three sharp reports split the night.  Barely two seconds later, another round of shots rang out, occupying the echoes of the first. 

    Bennett had seen his first target clutch at his chest, beginning to fall backward, before he slowly lowered his sights and took his second breath.  Unsure of what was happening, the other soldier had turned and was looking up at the roof.  Bennett’s second round took him squarely in the back, launching him face first into the side of the house where he promptly crumpled to the ground as his compatriot fell to the earth beside him.  Bennett rose, a slight grin on his face.  It had been easy.  Much easier than he had anticipated.

    Captain Ross lifted his binoculars and smiled.  Six shots, six kills, Excellent.  He assembled his team and they rushed down the hill to the edge of a large field.  The field, which may once have boasted an impressive harvest of grapes, had been turned into a morass of mud, laced with the detritus of war.  The team crouched down as Cap gave his orders.

    "Alright, keep down and keep moving.  Somebody probably noticed your handiwork back there and they’ll know something is up.  You keep moving, you hear me!  No matter what!"

    The four men spread out and launched themselves at the ground, beginning to crawl through the mud.  Bennett’s hands grasped for purchase as he moved forward, his hands clenching and unclenching rhythmically. 

    At one point, he reached out only to grab the arm of a French soldier’s corpse, obviously killed in a previous assault.  He stifled a gasp and fought to control his panic as he pushed himself across and over the bloated carcass.  It was then that he noticed the smell.  He had been too occupied with the task of getting across the field, but the stench of death that had encompassed the corpse seemed to tear away and adhere to the front of Bennett’s uniform as he continued on his way, a constant reminder of exactly where he was.

    He threaded through the bodies after that, some French, and some German, all of them dead, cataloging them as so
    mething to avoid in addition to the barbed wire and potential land mines.  He had been a peace officer back home, but none of his experience on the streets of Melbourne could have prepared him for this.  Although the edge of town was only 50 meters away, the minutes seemed to lengthen and the goal to drift farther away as they progressed slowly through the field.  Then, the shelling began.

    I guess there is a good reason for the increase for the 60+, hell why not get the extra points if you happen to have that particular record holder in your corral. since this will be my first Fantasy football season I can only guess by your comments that these kinds of changes do not happen often? how do they happen?

    happens in a private league such as the Galatic football league.  In public leagues the rules are set by the site administrators.  In private leagues you can set the rules as you wish.  One fellow in the pay-to-play league had Prator and he kicked a number of 50+ field goals.  Thus he made a suggestion that we change the points for kickers, the league voted and it passed.

    You know, when you think about it, Scott’s site is pretty much just an really overgrown blog  Wink Then again, you can say that about almost all podcasters. Blogs are the easiest way to disseminate ‘casts. I got a kick out of that when I was reading Podcasting for Dummies.

     From the raves I’ve been reading over on Twitter, sounds like this Cooley guy knows his horror. I pray he knows his audio production too. I always knew I was an audio snob, but I believe I’ve become worse after becoming a producer. Now I’m annoyed by even the smallest hiccups. I’ll be listening to a brilliantly authored piece with beautiful voice acting and thinking "Why the hell did he ruin such good material?" 

       Yes, it takes time. Yes, it’s boring as fuck. And you can vastly reduce the time it takes and wind up with a much higher quality product by putting some forethought into your recording. But if you don’t take the time to do it, your work suffers. So why do so many good authors skimp when it comes to audio production? Is it that most audience members can’t tell or don’t care? I find that hard to believe.

    to help us clueless people out.  It’s a been long and frustrating journey to produce podcasts that sound good.  For me, it took at least 6 months and I’m getting better at it all the time.  The problem with producing a very long work (more than 30 minutes) is trying to ensure you have all the words down the way they’re supposed to be as well as searching for the hiccups.  And when you’re mixing in a guess voice, it’s pure unadulterated hell.

    Did my best with Tattoo.  Prolly could have done better.  But too late now.  So hopefully you’ll enjoy it.  If not, then I expect a bitchslapping in the forums.

    And Evo is really good about letting you post updates if you want to Tongue out

       Especially if they increase the quality of the work. The goal, after all, is to offer a site that offers professional grade content for free. Let the audience decide what is good or not and give their hard earned $$$ straight to the author (more or less). 75% versus 8-12%, which is what you get from most of the big publishing houses. There’s a reason I’m a Podiobooks Pimp. I fell in love with the concept as soon as I discovered the site.

     As far as links go, there are two ways to do it:

    1. The ugly but easy way is to simply cut and paste the entire URL onto a separate line.
    2. The preferred way is to highlight whatever word/phrase you want to be your link, click the chain icon in the toolbar, paste the URL in the "Link URL" box, and then click the "Insert" button.

    I put up a website for this non-profit that I work with:

    http://perimeterpetpals.org

    We take our well-behaved pets (the crazy puppy has to stay home) to visit the folks at the assisted living homes, special needs kids, etc.

    I don’t have the site set up to take donations yet, but you can always contact the group and I’m sure they would find a way to gratefully accept any donations.

    Here’s a picture from a recent visit:

    [flickr-photo:id=4313042512,size=m]

    It’s my first Drupal site, so it still needs some work. If you have a pet that is fairly calm and can pass a basic obedience test, check into animal-assisted therapy in your area. http://www.deltasociety.org lists many groups.

    I take the kids (and grandkids) with me a lot of the visits and they have a great time and the oldsters find them very entertaining.

    Go see what all the Fiendlings are raving about. Paul E Cooley writes some badass horror with a few Junkie surprises thrown in that only a hardcore Sigler fan will appreciate. He’s also one of the most accessible authors I’ve met.

    Momma was the first of the “Fiends”Collection to get broadcast and it’s the oldest story I have. Therefore, I decided to go ahead and kick it out. Canvas and Breakers will be next. But if you like very twisted minds wrapped inside incredible intelligence, Momma is definitely something to check out.

    I thought you only listened to “complete” podiobooks? Not that I’m complaining…bwhahaha!

    Canvas is definitely my favorite of all my short stories, although I have trouble reading it now without thinking poorly of it. Kind of the same with all my short stories. After you’ve written them, and edited the shit out of them so many times, they kind of get old… But Canvas will always have a special place, especially since it brought in so many new listeners and also was sort of the inspiration for Tattoo.

    So, I’m sure you’ve seen me mention a time or two that I’m a huge indoor lacrosse fan.

    There’s a message board for the team I follow in Colorado and one of the other forum members and friend of mine runs a trivia contest every off season just so there’s something to do when there’s no lacrosse to watch. He always has some little prize that he gives out to the winner and was getting to a point where he was running out of stuff to find (tough being that last off season was the 3rd year, but it’s hard to find unique items for a 2nd tier pro sport).

    The first year I won I received a signed card by one of our former players and coaches, Gary Gait from when he played with the Detroit Turbos in the old MILL.

    The second year was a Colorado Mammoth neon sign that some bootlegger was making on ebay. I won that, too.

    Last year he decided he was just going to make a small replica trophy of the actual NLL Champion’s Cup that the league champ gets and start giving that to the winner each year.
    I happened to win that, too. :-P

    It’s pretty flippin’ awesome, it is.

    One thing – is it okay to pimp this on the FDO’s site? I feel kinda uncomfortable.

    That’s the whole reason I created it. As long as people aren’t spamming, we’re pretty cool about folks pimping their own stuff. The podosphere is more of a tribe than anything else. We all kind of help one another out.

    So my main job is with this company, echoEleven, and we have an eLearning authoring tool that’s pretty fraking cool – Podium. If you wanted to create an employee new hire course or something like a procedure/how to course, this has everything you need. I would love to have some of our educator-types out there give it a try and let me know what you think. You could create homework assignments for the kids that are auto-graded and get the report back before class with who completed the assignment, who didn’t, and what areas (objectives) they mastered and which ones need more work (formative assessment is your friend!).

    Anyway, there are lots of things you could create (I did a quick course on making your own pasta from scratch for a demo). You can take your existing documents, graphics, videos and pull them into a course very easily.

    The BEST part — for my Junkie friends (ok, for anyone) — you can sign up and create/manage up to 3 couses for FREE! Not a trial. They are your courses and you will have your own database and access to the Podium software for free. (Its web-based, SaaS, so no hardware to buy). If you decide you love it and need to create more than three course for your company/school/non-profit, then there’s a fee based on how many courses you need. It’s all on the website: http://www.authoronpodium.com

    Oh yeah, the courses you create can be published as SCORM or standalone (burn to CD or save on a network) or thru the echoLearning LMS (included with the Podium 3 for Free!).

    The Second Best part — I am the Director of Customer Experience at echoEleven, so I will be answering your emails and you’ll probably hear me on webinars and stuff. There’s already a bunch of videos on Podium on our YouTube channel: AuthorOnPodium and you can follow my Tweeting @AuthorOnPodium (that gets pretty deep into the eLearning, Social Media, and other education stuff). And my work blog: http://www.blog.authoronpodium.com

    Hey A, how about a DOM online course on “How to Prep and Mail ‘The All-Pro’” to educate any helpers next year? Or, “The Care and Maintenance of the Plaid Tank”? The possibilities are truly endless.

    Thanks for reading and I really would LOVE to have my Junkie friends get some useful materials out of this.

    When I was blogging regularly, I ran into several instances of things I couldn’t do. I just found out those were likely do to the fact that WordPress was hosting (WordPress.com) versus hosting things myself (WordPress.org)or going with someone else (eg Tumblr). Curious what your experience has been.

    This October I will be the MC at the slightly misnamed Mid-Summer Fantasy Ball put on by Team Wench. The ball is a fundraiser for research to cure MS. This year we have a steampunk theme. That’s where I come in.

    This is where you (hopefully) come in. The good folks at Balticon are going to let Team Wench include fliers in with the Balticon 45 registration packet, providing we can provide 6 volunteers for 3-4 hours on Thursday the 26th to help assemble the packets. If you’re going to be at SiglerFest and you’ve got the time to spare, we could use some hands to help with the work. Not sure exactly when the stuffing party is yet, but if you’re willing to help, let me know so I can pass the word on. Presumably, the more people we have, the less time it will take.

    Avatar of Doc Coleman

    I didn’t know you were a Junkie, too! Info I was given says that packet stuffing starts at 7PM on Thursday in the hall outside of the Valley and Hunt ballrooms at the con hotel. Help out both Balticon and Team Wench at the same time!

    The ONLY thing on the SiglerFest schedule that is in conflict with this is the offsite Junkie dinner. And if we have enough volunteers we can get all the packets stuffed fast enough to make the Junkie dinner.

    There’s a slim possibility I may try doing some sort of Skype collaboration to get true male/female parts, but I suspect the loss of quality wouldn’t be worth it. I’ll have to ponder that for a bit and then experiment. That’s assuming she’s game for it, of course.

    I love to sing, but I don’t do it in front of people! I think Maeve is pretty much the only one who ever hears me sing (there have been one or two exceptions…but its very rare and takes a very special person with a lot of patience who is willing to wait a long time to be that exception!). I used to be in Show Choir, All-County, All-State, Drama Club and have no trouble being on stage. But in the same room, or in front of a webcam…. I don’t know why, it’s just different. And I’m now (years later) quite certain I’m just not that good. Undecided

    Have to remember that music, like any artistic endeavor, is a subjective medium. It’s hard to tell if negative revies are the result of a listener not liking that type of song in general or if they’re dedicated to the version sung by the original artist. If the negative feedback tells you the “whys” then I thnk that’s useful, but if it’s a general “that sucked” kind of feedback then that’s just not helpful. If majority of people are saying you’re music is lovely then go with and definitely don’t dwell on bad.

    I love hearing alternative versions of songs and sometimes they’re even better than the original singer! Yours are delightful. You have a strong voice and carry a tune very well. You’ve sung some incredibly hard songs and sung them well — I don’t think many people can sing Adele and even come close to her talent, but you have. Laughing

I do have a particularly clear memory of myself driving and singing along to the “Once More, With Feeling….” soundtrack. I shocked my girlfriend at the time because it was SMG singing and I kept in the same octave as her. Apparently, she expected me to drop a few.

    It’s not Sigler Horror worthy, and it’s just a short, but it’s something.
    Did I get paid for it? Sort of. Payment is donation based kind of like Podiobooks, but I get the lions share. The leftover supports Flying Island Press. Which is a pretty cool ezine out there. Their companion podcasts are good too. The galley table is one that I listen to all the time.

    Read the story, listen to the read. If it makes you chuckle, chuck a buck or two.
