The Facebook Zynga Podcast 2/21/11

That is right I am blogging about the show. I am not letting anyone stop me. John knows where to find me if he has any issues with my blog.  He was not the one to contact me to shut me down it was a friend of his.

What a great show tonight!!  I don't know what it was but things ran pretty well and mood was great.  John must of taken some happy pills, well he did mention he was out last night so maybe he was still drunk...LOL  ONLY KIDDING!!!  

John was joined by Tre and Jeremy who was filling in for Joanne who is sick. Sending her get well wishes.

John started out with the obituaries...big improvement with those this week.  

Mafia Wars News:
Talked about the Dead Man Talking mission (all these missions are a pain can't get to the game)
Broken Heart event coming to end..FINALLY one day left.  Talking how in the beginning of the event hearts were being subtracted not added.  
They talked how missions need to get spaced out for players are getting overwhelmed.  Tre says catering to those players who have gotten through everything and have nothing to do.  Lower level players will get frustrated and quit.  My opinion, they do need to space things out.  Lower level players are very overwhelmed and looking to quit.  Not just MW all the Zynga games. They are shoving missions down our throats they need to back off a bit.

Ancient Relic is a new and it ends March 1st.  Don't think it can be done several times. For the last item doesn't open until Friday which means you will have to go crazy over the weekend to get stuff by Tuesday.  The Grand Prize is great.  

Tre ~~Travis Mack is a friend and his girlfriend's mother passed after a long battle of cancer.  He is holding a free for all March 9th Check out the Facebook Zynga fan page or the Pinnacle War page for more information or contact Tre.  Its free but donations are welcomed.  He is helping with funeral expenses so please come by show support and have fun.

Rick Olsen of the groups Bogus Pomp and The HubbTones.  Rick talked how Bogus Pomp does Frank Zappa music.  1993 Frank Zappa died and we all remember where we were.   Like were many knew were they were when John Lennon died.  1994 Rick and friend Jerry Outlaw started this to remember Zappa and the got received so well, in the US and Europe.  Its a celebration of his music not just for us but for the people there.

On Sunday, Feb 27th the band is holding a benefit for a good friend Debra who is a photographer.  Someone broke into her trunk and stole all her equipment, which put her out of work.   $10 requested donation.  It will be held at Local 662, 622 Central Avenue Downtown St. Petersburg FL, starts at 8pm. Check out Facebook page for The HubbTones.  Bogus Pomp there are videos on Youtube.

Back to MW news
They talked about how they changed the wishlist.  Some things you can send as a gift and put on your wishlist. Now Zynga pulled them from gifting as well wishlist.  Tre~~i hate when they change something and you get used to it and adjust it how you play the game.  Then they come along and change it again. I hate when they do that.  Also I am getting tired of all the pop ups, they are getting so annoying.  They need to find a better way. John~~ I suggest a long time ago that they do ticket tape, lets us see what they want us to see and if we see something we like we will click on it.  I agree with the pop ups, I was trying to ice someone and i kept getting heart pop ups.  I don't want to lose my ice over pop ups.  

Zynga News
