Haiku for you!

The High Drag Podcast is issuing a contest. We have 2x 100 million ISK promo codes for SOMER BLINK to give away to the writers of the best New Eden Haiku. Send in your short works of written art to Random McNally (in game name) or post it on the High Drag Webpage, or reply to the Eve Online Forum thread. As long as your entry is a Haiku and as long as it is about  New Eden, you will be eligible to receive 1x of the Somer Blink promo codes.

We will read the best Haiku(s) live on Zao Amadues’ twitch stream at 0200 Eve Time on Wednesday October 2nd 2013. We’ll also be recording episode 19 of High Drag.

Good luck!

Episode 18: The Eve Online Community

It has been a roller coaster ride over the last few days. What promised to be a Podcast episode worthy of the Eve Online archives, turned out to be just that, only, in just a slightly different way than we thought. We planned quite a  bit for this episode, but in the words of Jane Cobb ” What you plan and what takes place ain’t exactly ever similar.” Still, and surprisingly, this is one of our best episodes yet; because episode 18 is a celebration of all that is fantastic in the EVE Online Community.

In this Episode:

  • Zealot Comadrin pre-parties just a little too hard.
  • Fintarue outbeards Zao Amdues (We still love Zao)
  • Random McNally attempts to define “CREST”
  • Ashterothi schools us all
  • Kyle Yanowski rationalizes his ISK gambling habit and covers down on Tao of Zao
  • All of us Marvel over the wonder of the Eve Online Community
  • We announce a HAIKU contest worth 2x Somer Blink promo codes. Deadline for entries is 1 OCT 2013

Episode 17: This Whole Thing Links!

Episode 16: Participation Ribbons For Everyone!

Episode 16

Hey folks, you’re never going to believe this….

We have a full crew.  Yep, everyone, INCLUDING the braintrust of High Drag, managed to show up and put in an appearance for one hell of a discussion.  We start out with introductions and what we are doing in game.  Zealot leads us off with a Newb segment featuring ‘what non-dps ships are good’.  We talk about drones, Zao’s fits for the faction frigs and finally go into shout outs.

Personalities on this episode include Kyle Yanowski, Random McNally, Zealot Comadrin, Zao Amadues and Ashterothi.  Recording was featured live on Zao’s twitch stream located at http://www.twitch.tv/lokoforloki.

Music on this episode:

Baba O’Reilly by The Who (one of the greatest intro’s in music)

When The Heart Rules The Mind by GTR (does anyone else remember these guys?)

Flirtin’ With Disaster by Molly Hatchet (thats some down home, right there)

You Are A Pirate! by Alestorm (undoubtedly Zaos  theme song)

The Kids Aren’t Alright by The Offspring (undoubtedly OUR theme song)

Big Shout out to 3rr0rc0d3 and his space music.  You kind find his work at http://www.Minddivided.com.

Drops on this episode are from 3rr0rc0d3 and Northern MIsfit.

Zao’s ship fits will be posted soon™.
