3 x Friday the 13th = ???
The first one is NEXT WEEK!
It is hilarious that to our gaming community, Voltiare has become a greater iconic figure of Friday the 13th than the hockey mask-wearing Jason Voorheese. Ooooooh, I wonder who would win in a supernatural creep-off fight between them? (Oh yes, that is the official Twitter question. It should be assumed that Voltaire has Deady... and probably access to various Star Trek and Star Wars technology.) So NEXT WEEK is Friday the 13th... and we will be summoning Voltiare in-game (probably by standing in a dark room and saying his name three times in front of a mirror) where he will appear and hopefully play his new song "Riding a Black Unicorn Down the Side of an Erupting Volcano While Drinking from a Chalice Filled with the Laughter of Small Children." (Yes, that is really the name of the song.)
Voltaire says he wrote this song after he asked his fans on Facebook how to describe his music. One person responded, "Your music is like Riding a Black Unicorn Down the Side of an Erupting Volcano While Drinking from a Chalice Filled with the Laughter of Small Children!" Voltaire had one of those "YES!!!!!!" moments... and named his new album and hit song after it. Note: All of the songs in Voltaire's new album, except for the 3 we are using for the upcoming event, are strictly for fans age 15+. However.... fans of all ages can get his special, um, "dark, funny and all age appropriate" album, Spooky Songs for Creepy Kids... read some reviews.
Voltaire was not the only person to create a Unicorn-themed song based on recommendations from his fans. In fact, the artist who made the song in the next video has the EXACT same story. But our Friday the 13th would be a whole lot creepier if this rising youtube star appeared in it O_O
Galanoth: Why would you post that?
Artix: Um... someone posted it on Voltaires wall. I thought it was funny.
Galanoth: You are going to upset all the anti-bronies.
Galanoth: In fact, posting that may have actually moved the end of the world up from December 22nd!
Artix: LOL! OK, you are right. I will take it down.
Artix: Um... ok, I cannot figure out how to remove a youtube video from a post.?
Artix: OH MAN... IT IS STUCK ON AUTO LOOP!
Artix: ZHOOOOOOOOOOOM! HELP!!!!!!!!!!!
Rolith: *laughs in the distance*
The new Friday the 13th event is next Friday (only 8 days away.) All of the holiday mega releases really crunched us. We have never had this little time to do an event - so it is going to be a real challenge to see what we can do. Cysero, I talked with Voltaire last night and got a concept. Alina is writing the script now. This event will most likely be three segments long. But you can bet your bottom gold coin that we will be riding a Black Unicorn down the side of an Erupting Volcano! (Wait... or will we?) AQWorlds is so unpredictable.
