So far, we've been getting ready for the D23 expo.. not much. lol trying to decide if we should be trying to get twitter followers prior, so we can live tweet, and possibly doing some giveaways while we are there. also figuring out interviews with important peeps and other MWers attending.. - MEHlanie_Mouse1053.3 #103 7-31-13 1:17AMLikeReply
Of this Mon/Tues/Wed, what day is the best for another Skype meeting? Maybe start at 8:15pm?
I'd say Monday. Tuesday is the LTM AP 58 years of Magic presentation, which I know I'm going to try to attend.. Not sure about the others. Wednesday I'll be busy. Also we finished recording today, we had issues earlier this weekend with sound. - MEHlanie_Mouse1053.3 #103 6-30-13 8:17PMLikeReply
i'm not sure actually but i'll let you know soon. we wanna know if we can have an official lounge cast account on MW so we can post videos and stuff? - nicoleface1694.8 #57 6-30-13 8:19PMLikeReply
So I just finished listening to the recording and I'll be honest, it's not our best. Some of the stronger points that I thought was Nicole talking about MU, Melanie presenting the AP event, Erika describing the Lone Ranger premiere and Trent describing the E3 Expo. But, there were parts of the show that seemed like we were unprepared or unsure of things. I think if we did weekly or somewhat consistent meetings, we can iron out these things. Also, being honest here, if I wasn't editing this show, I would have turned it off. I'm sorry, but the lack of confidence in your voices made me tired and felt like your energy level was decreasing as the show progressed. We can talk about maybe tweaking the format again so the hosts seem more confident and have more energy. Remember, we are the 'voices' of MW and do we want to show that we're boring? The August show should be the chance for us to shine with the D23 expo coming up. If we do get any sort of interviews there, it would be great to play them on the show. And we could always interview MWers at the event too. Just my thoughts on the show and we can only get better from here. - BaseballMickey_CM4496.9 #14 7-3-13 11:24PMLikeReply
Between our meeting, Erika, Melanie and I talk about a possible microphone purchase, re-format of the script, interviews for D23, possible vlogs (videos) of random tips/reviews/overview of what happened in the parks, 1 minute rants/review of certain news topics or experiences, ignoring useless and old information. - BaseballMickey_CM4496.9 #14 7-5-13 12:48PMLikeReply
I remember us talking about maybe purchasing a microphone to do interviews (now that we have a somewhat media pass with Disney). I found here on Amazon that plugs into an iPhone or Android and records right on the phone. If you look at th More...

Kevin thanks so much for the recap. I'll start brainstorming a bit in prep for next week!! Thanks guys! - EpicDio420.6 #385 6-7-13 9:40AMLikeReply
I can help with the research. Are we just looking for general info, or something more specific? Also, if it would be easier since I am in school and working and can't really make the Skype calls, I can help keep track of the social media. I have a lot of small amounts of free time that I spend on here, Facebook, etc. just not any huge amounts that allows for the calls/recording (unless I take vacation time lol). I still want to help any way possible until I graduate in September/October and I think that's where I would be most useful for now - SPandEvLover1550.3 #64 6-8-13 11:13AMLikeReply
Is anyone open this Thursday night for a Skype call just to talk and plan for the next show? I know I'm way ahead, but July's and August's shows are going to have a lot of events (ie: D23 expo, Long Ranger premiere, etc)
i might be able to! i'll know for sure on thursday but i'm pretty sure yes. - nicoleface1694.8 #57 6-4-13 12:00AMLikeReply

Hi guys! With the reunion coming up this weekend, do you think we should think up of a list of people we might want to interview there? or maybe a list of questions to ask those being interviewed? We shouldn't walk into the events unprepa More...
awesome! yes! it would be great if we had a list of questions we know to ask ahead of time. - nicoleface1694.8 #57 5-13-13 8:51PMLikeReply
we've had just basic questions in the past:
-how did you find MW?
-favourite MW memory

If you look back at the outlines on Dropbox, you can kinda see how our last show went. If you didn't know, we're only doing monthly shows now because of scheduling and in order to have better quality. - BaseballMickey_CM4496.9 #14 5-15-13 3:43PMLikeReply

How did the recordings go? Remember that we can use real Disney music now. I'll start working on the outline for the June show - BaseballMickey_CM4496.9 #14 5-6-13 9:57AMLikeReply
Since we have 2 big events happening (the Reunion and the 24 hour), how much of what do we want to cover and emphasize? Should we have MWers on about their experiences of the reunion? or those who went to the 24 event (pending on how it goes this year). - BaseballMickey_CM4496.9 #14 5-6-13 2:55PMLikeReply
First, I just want to say sorry for taking so long to edit this podcast but it is finally done and in the dorp box for all to listen to. If there is anything I need to fix, please let me know. - TheNewTrent717.9 #181 5-7-13 1:44AMLikeReply

I don't mind recording, since I've done all the LTM we mentioned. Also I did add some stuff already to the google doc if you guys didn't look lol - MEHlanie_Mouse1053.3 #103 4-17-13 11:23PMLikeReply
I also saved the most recent version of the outline in Dropbox with all of the notes from the meeting. Also, I made a few edits (like Best Post of the Month, instead of Week) and others. I don't know how to make that a Google Doc, but its there to read. - BaseballMickey_CM4496.9 #14 4-18-13 10:45AMLikeReply
hey everyone, it's been a while! i hope you're all doing well and during our little hiatus you possibly thought up some ideas for the show or even just cleared your mind so we could start fresh. :) i believe for now we should work on mont More...
I think we should shoot for one at the beginning of May, since the reunion is coming up. We should probably make that the main focus of the episode, since there would probably be a lot to discuss on the topic.. Interview with Admin like BBM mentioned I believe? Er, the story of mousewait maybe for those who don't really know? Discuss the reunion, what people can expect, encourage people to go, those types of things.. I think I'm free either day for a skyppe call but I'll check.. please let me know if anything here seems like "Wth" I'm typing while trying to listen to the event planning meeting - MEHlanie_Mouse1053.3 #103 4-10-13 10:55PMLikeReply
I agree, monthly shows sound good and May sounds good. I think we should cover the info about the reunion and also what to expect. But the meat of the show can be an interview with Admin and him telling his story. I think it would be nice for those who can't make it to the reunion can hear Admin in person about how the app has changed effected him. News wise, there is a lot to cover, but we can maybe summarize it. I also think we should reduce the time we spend on the news/announcements and get to the original content as efficient as possible. Monday and Tuesday work for me or if any of you are in the parks this weekend, I'll be there too. - BaseballMickey_CM4496.9 #14 4-11-13 10:34AMLikeReply
I just posted an outline for show 006 in Dropbox. Feel free to check it out. If you want to add any notes or changes, make sure you note what color font you are so it is easier to see the changes. - BaseballMickey_CM4496.9 #14 4-15-13 9:59PMLikeReply
i hope everyone, and everyone at this point i'm suspecting is melanie, trent, and dio, has had a chance to look at kevin's outline. i like it and not just because we aren't skimping on content to talk about since we've made it monthly. for every podcast i would like us to have at least one original content piece and for this episode it would be the interview with admin. i would like to discuss the outline in a meeting tomorrow! dio said she can only do during the day. i can after 12:30 but have to leave at 3. please let me know if you can make it. i'll also be putting kevin's outline into a google doc and sharing it with everyone so we can all input feedback/make changes. thank you kevin, and everyone who's responded! - nicoleface1694.8 #57 4-16-13 6:48PMLikeReply

I'm having the same issues. I'm going to follow up on my e-mail to Admin about that, not receiving e-mails when someone posts, and not being able to tag photos in the Lounge. I also think we should have stuff ready for when Nicole gets back. Should we post our ideas here or just have then ready to go? - EpicDio420.6 #385 4-3-13 8:48AMLikeReply
I just think the thing we were missing was a main feature for the show. We could still have all the other segments of the show: news, mw news and updates, question, but with nothing to look forward to in the show, it's just a show with no direction. The MW interviews could not do it alone. Dedicating the main feature to the history of some of the lands is a good place to start off until we make a name for ourselves and can have special guests come on or something special happens at the parks: limited time magic, new areas opening, etc. We should also just take a step back and look at what the format of the show and see if anything can be done with that. - TheNewTrent717.9 #181 4-5-13 10:08PMLikeReply
I think we should call a meeting soon to talk since we last met. There is a lot to cover and we can also share our ideas. I'm open Tues/Wed this week. - BaseballMickey_CM4496.9 #14 4-8-13 9:01PMLikeReply
