Spot sings LoL carols

Tonight, I made Spot the Octopus sing two holiday carols for 25MTS!

1. Spot the Octopus – League of Legends Jingle Bells

2. Twelve Days of Snowdown, but, uh, I can’t upload things > 2 mb. haha

Well, here they both are on Posterous, because it has a built-in flash player. http://spottheoctopus.posterous.com/spot-sings-lol-holiday-carols

Lyrics:

Jingle Bells

Flashing through the snow
whole team M I A
o’er the lane we go
ganking all the way

Bells on Kog’maw ring
ace the last team fight
what fun it is to /taunt and sing
a SLAYING song tonight

O!
Jingle bells, cho’gath smells
Singed is drunk on nogg,
Mundo mash, Udyr smash
and Trundle’s left his bog…

Jingle bells, Trynda wails
Anivia laid an egg
Evelynn fed the Xin
and Gangplank lost a leg!

12 Days of Snowdown

On the first day of Snowdown, my Sum’ner gave to me, a Garen spinning in a tree.
On the second day of Snowdown, my Sum’ner gave to me, two feeders bottom
On the third day of Snowdown, my Sum’ner gave to me, three freakin’ ninjas
On the fourth day of Snowdown, my Sum’ner gave to me, four neutral wraiths
On the fifth day of Snowdown, my Sum’ner gave to me, five Hearts of Gold
On the sixth day of Snowdown, my Sum’ner gave to me, six minions marching
On the seventh day of Snowdown, my Sum’ner gave to me, Seven Christmas skins
On the eight day of Snowdown, my Sum’ner gave to me, eight Rammus Tremors
On the ninth day of Snowdown, my Sum’ner gave to me, nine stacks on mejai’s
On the tenth day of Snowdown, my Sum’ner gave to me, 10 champs-a-fighting
On the eleventh day of Snowdown, my Sum’ner gave to me, eleven Turrets shooting
On the twelfth day of Snowdown, my Sum’ner gave to me, twelve Jungle Camps

25 Minutes To Surrender: episode 8 progress report

I’m helping Jamal at Eudemonia with a League of Legends fan podcast! It’s called 25 Minutes To Surrender and it’s tons of fun. Jamal is doing a great job of pulling everyone together (read: lighting fires under our butts) and generating show content. Our other regular cast members are Aaron, Will T, Razvan, Greg, Chi, and Kyle F.

Every week, we go over the free champions, picking a few and highlighting their current metagame viability. We move on to many varied topics of interest to new players all the way up to experienced ones. In the past couple of episodes, we’ve covered drafting/teambuilding/countering strategies, items, silly things like new skins, jungling strategies and champions…

Every other week, we have a special guest on the show. Faro actually came to the store and hung out; Elementz and RiotPhreak called into the show via Skype. These interviews are tons of fun. I learn a LOT… a lot a lot a lot. Phreak gave us some leaks too, and insight on how Riot does balancing and is committed to e-sports and such.

Someone that is not me posted about us on reddit already, commending our sound quality. This makes me happy in the pants.

I also just posted 25MTS to teamliquid (the premier english-language starcraft 2 forum) because they just created a subform for league of legends.

We might be able to interview Brackhar, the designer of Anivia, Taric, Janna, and Nidalee. He responded to me on his AMA. His AMA is really great–there are some really good questions and answers.

=D
