Declarations of War #94

I was on Declarations of War's latest episode (#94) and I was quite the terrible guest. They are nice about it, but I was a bad guest. I did discover some things about myself:

-I'm only good at talking when I have a topic. Having a topic is easy enough in Eve. The problem is that I'm not good at more, casual chatter. I believe that I talk to much and find myself uncomfortable with talking without a defined goal, such as sharing a recipe.

-I hate speculating. I find that I have nothing to say when it comes to guessing what people may do. I don't know. I want to watch and observe until I do know. But, if you ask me what I think they will do I'll flounder.

-Attached to speculating comes the fact that I am an observer. I'm a lean back and watch the events go by. I'm not a major player in the greater movements in game play. The episode was very null sec focused and I realize that for everything I have learned I find myself more and more ignorant of what null sec life is like. I cannot speculate for it is unknown.

-I'm attracted to small details.

In general, I make for bad radio. I'm okay with that. I was amused at how terrible I was. Mix it with my general lack of humor and I'm a terrible and boring guest. I'm told that off the cuff stuff gives you are more honest reading. Well, the honest truth is that I'm boring. :P

I did apologize. It was nice to be invited. I wish I had been more... *waves arms* stuff.

  2. You weren't terrible. You chimed in when you had something to say and when you did it was worth listening to. As long as you're not the anchor.that's fine.

    There's an increasing trend in the Eve media to talk about uninteresting nonsense (like in the Meta show where they often talk for 10 minutes without saying anything about Eve) so I honestly wish there were more guests like you and less Eve extroverts who think the most trivial thing they do is interesting.

  3. To be fair, if they wanted to discuss null sec then they should have picked guests that can speak to that area of the game. It would have been worse to have someone who obviously doesn't know that aspect of the game speaking about it authoritatively. No one likes when someone does that.

    Disclaimer: I didn't listen, these are just my thoughts based on what you said.
