The Official World Class Ocarina Thread! (no it doesn't have to make the journey in 80 days) :D

Okay, here we go guys! Ocarinadiva has the ocarina right now. She is going to be the first to play, record, photo, then send our little ocarina on it's journey. Below is the list of participants that we have so far, and the proposed journey of our little ocarina. I sure hope it will make it's journey without trouble, and arrive at it's final destination unharmed and full of signatures.

(The person in bold has the Ocarina)

Just as a reminder, here is what you will be doing:

1. You receive the ocarina in the mail.
2. Verify that it is not broken (play it if you like), and let us know that you have received it.
3. Record (audio, or audio and video if you can keep the file size relatively small) something with it and put it on the usb drive that will be in the box with the ocarina.
4. Take a picture of you with the ocarina (with whatever/whoever else you want in the picture)
5. Post picture in THIS thread. Note: You can also post a video (with the ocarina) on youtube if you like. It's up to you since it is your video.
6. Pack up the ocarina and the usb drive (in same box with the same packing materials if you like) and mail it to the next person on the list (the list will be in the new thread that I start in a day or two.
Note: You will need to pm or email the next person on the list to get their mailing address.
Note: Please verify that you have placed both the ocarina and the usb drive in the box to be shipped (it would be easy to forget the usb drive in your computer or on a desk).
Last note (for now anyway): If you would rather put your picture, video or audio somewhere online, that is fine. Just please make sure the rest of us have access to this, since we are dying to see where you live and what you do with our little friend.

Now, go break a leg.............not the ocarina (hahaha!) :D

Oh Sam. I get to "kiss" you again.

Last time I tried an Ocarina that Sam had played he said that we had kissed. O.o
