Just wanted to say I very much enjoyed your introduction cast, I was listening to Ring Cast when I played LotrO but I haven't lately and therefore can't being myself to hear the show as it makes me want to play ^_^ And I already have two other MMOs active.. But I did miss your voice and this gives us another viewpoint on both who you are and what gamers are really like. I find it's somewhat similar to the Addicted Gamer podcast's idea, though with a more personal touch and a 'bloggy' feel to it.

Stereotypes have always been something that has irks me since I first learned of it's concept. I've never been one to fit any mold either and I do not see people as bearing labels. People are individuals first with fears, qualities, shortcomings and talents we all share at some level but make us all unique depending on the many, many combinations of characteristics out there. Maybe this is why some of us want an MMO to finally give freedom of stat distribution and unique classes, we want to be as unique in game as we are in life. And maybe some would believe our characters in game are a projection of who we want to be, but I think that's a mistake, we already are everything we want to be we just have to go out there and apply it. ;)

Anyway, great show! Looking forwards to episode number 2 and what other thought provoking rambles we'll get to hear. ^_^

Loved it. Love you.. Woohoo! haha.

Anyways, I'm glad you are enjoying just ranting because it's always fun to just yak away, rather then read something off. =)

As far as girl gamers, I think that the tide is turning. Women are playing MMOs more so then they have in the past. The more of us out there, the more people will respect us for being good players rather then some kind of ornament.

Well done, Lady Sinaea. Grats on numero uno!

OK so I was not one of your "many fans that was beating down your door for this podcast" And when I heard about you from a few othere podcast I thought I would give you a listen. It was not at all what I thought it would be. I don't no why I just thought that I would hear you bashing on people or games. No idea why I just thought that. I am glab thats not what it turned out to be. I injoyed listening to you going on about nothing. Hmmm Don't know why. I do know that I will be giving your next show a listen.
I would say grats one your first show ,but this is just a nother show you do now. Right? You are a host to what was it...guildwars podcast I think you said. May have it all wrong.
any way good job.

Great job girl! I really enjoyed this first episode. I always enjoy your Sinaea rants. I still enjoy the comment you made at ConNooga about all the people dressed up like asians... AND they aren't even asian! Classic Sinaea.

Keep up the good work, and killing makes us all smile.

'Thanks!' by Sinaea

Ha ha, Brad, I'd forgotten about that.

Alik, I'm really glad that you were pleasantly surprised. I appreciate your "new listener" perspective even more, because it comes from a more unbiased viewpoint. :)

Thanks for the comments and encouragement, everyone!

You have a show where you just talk about yourself? Uh huh. Thanks for coming over and commenting on my show while not even acknowledging that I am on it. Good luck with your show!

'Onyx Reserve, huh?' by Wookieefoot

I'm not really sure how I heard about your podcast, I wanna say it was through Brent's show. Great job on your first show and I look forward to hearing more. I especially liked your little cigar section. I actually have a 50 Ct. humi with various goodies inside. I picked up an Onyx Reserve Belicoso a couple months ago, it was recommended by one of the guys at my local B&M. I'm not really into box pressed cigars, so I was a little leery at first. I was looking for something reasonably priced and peppery, without having to buy an Opus, lol. And it did the trick. Although I'd say my go to smoke would be my Gurkha Aniversario Perfectos, they are so yummy. Or any Gurkha for that matter.

Again, great first show and I sub'd to hear more!

I found your PODcast from the collective and I have to say.... it's pretty bad. While i sit here and listen at work this pod cast has to be the least favorite. You said that you would like to have constructive criticism towards your shows. This to me seems to be an outlet for you to discuss how you feel and whatever. Not to be mean or anything but nobody wants to hear rambling for an hour. My piece of advice to you would be to go out.... away from your computer and socialize with human beings.

On the other note if you continue to do the show you should pick one topic and talk about it from the start to finish of that particular episode.
