I’m alive. I’m still playing WoW way too much. Just been concentrating on getting my mining alt up to Panda land so I can gather my own Ghost Iron Ore for Elfi to use in her transmute. I finally made it to the Jade Forest last night. Too bad I can’t fly or else I’d just stop here. Lol.
I’ve also been working some voluntary overtime and I’ve had a touch of the blues coupled with exhaustion. As a result, things have been quiet here but I’m quite certain I’ll be back to blathering about all my normal nonsense in no time.
Since I’m currently a tad bit emo, this seems like a good post to include the picture of my Blood Elf I took when she got smashed up against a giant mushroom in Zangarmarsh and the camera didn’t know what to do. It reminds me of a typical profile picture from an emo teenager.
How did I manage to go from a post a day for a solid month to no post at all for almost 2 weeks? Well, part of the reason is because last week I had the plague and was too sick to get out of my recliner. The rest of the reason? I don’t really have one. Just haven’t gotten back in the swing of things after the week of sleeping. I have been logging in, but instead of diving right back into the serious business of grinding and gearing my main I have been hanging out on the Horde side with a couple of friends going through all the old content we can for pets and mounts. Derping around can be fun. Especially when you’re raking in pets and mounts while logged into Vent making fun of Canadians and the way they say all their words wrong.
Aside from that, I’ve been not doing much. Sadly, I recently told my SWTOR guild that I was leaving the game because I’ve lost interest in the Galaxy and wasn’t doing any extra work to keep my gear upgraded. I had also grown tired of both weekend nights being filled with raiding. I had been missing raids due to illness and obligations and with the holidays here now, I knew I’d be missing a lot more. I finally had to quit stringing them and myself along and just end it. It sucked. I have good friends there and I have an amazing time when I’m raiding with them. I had actually posted on the guild forums that I was unsubbing, but have since decided not to for now because when I am logged in I have a lot of fun. So we’ll see what happens there. I have a feeling that now that I’ve officially quit, I’ll want to play more than usual. Because that’s what kind of special crackhead I am.
I will resume regular posting here again soon, though. And since I’ve been running a lot of old content, it’s highly likely you’ll see more of the old school screenshots like I have recently posted. Until then, I’m just going to sit here and cuddle with Jasper (who COMPLETELY enjoyed me being in the recliner for a week).
Things are going to be slow on the posting front for the next few days so expect more completely random shots. Like this one …
Work has been crazy for me lately due to the after effects of Hurricane Sandy, so I did not get the chance to spend quality time picking out screenshots or thinking of some sort of theme. Instead, about 10 minutes ago I opened up my screenshot folder and just poked my finger at a few shots. Here are the results.
See my blogroll over there on the right side? It’s been pretty ignored for quite some time and I’d like to update it. Just this morning I edited the entry for Resto Is Epic to the new link and added The Sisterhood of Kia to the list; but I know there is much more to do. So I am begging you guys to please let me know of any links over yonder that need to be updated, deleted or new ones that I’m totally missing. I already know of a few in my feed reader that are not yet on the blogroll, so I will be updating those later tonight at work.
And that’s that. Another lazy post. Gawd, I’m horrible.
(p.s. – plz send me links so i can read all the things i am missing)
There are, as we all know by now, so many excellent WoW bloggers writing so many excellent WoW posts this week, last week and for many, many weeks before now. But this post isn’t about them. This post highlights some of the things that can be found when you type “World of Warcraft” into Google search and then choose the News option to see what’s new. Most of the time, it doesn’t really turn up anything interesting at all. But sometimes, it will blow your mind.
Let’s just start right off with an online commercial featuring Lou Ferrigno (of The Incredible Hulk fame) and what I guess you could call a PSA wherein he says you should play WoW to get all the sex. Well, he sorta says that. Actually I can’t really understand anything he’s fucking saying. But… here, just check it out for yourself. And after you watch the video, be sure to scroll down to the bottom of the page. It doesn’t look like there is any more page there, but there is: http://www.onlineschools.org/ferrigknow/sex-and-the-world-of-warcraft/
There’s a new short documentary that has just been released that features some really fabulous video and images from the game. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending) it’s a documentary about how the filmmaker’s addiction to WoW was ruining his life. At a little over 7 minutes long it’s worth a watch. He just tells his story and there’s not any WoW bashing or anything so it shouldn’t cause anyone to go in any rages to defend the game. Find the article and video here: http://www.filmschoolrejects.com/features/short-film-watch-irl-in-real-life-world-of-warcraft-addiction-anthony-rosner-doc.php
Always a big topic, a University of Minnesota student journalist looks into girls who are hard-core gamers in a world where most people believe gaming is for guys. Article is here: http://www.startribune.com/lifestyle/148279895.html?page=1&c=y
For those of you who live for the funny, you may want to consider playing the Family Guy Online MMO. According to this article, it’s like World of Warcraft except way funnier (uh.. I think I’ll pass). Read their reasons for the statement here: http://blog.games.com/2012/04/17/family-guy-online-preview/
And finally, in what may actually be sorta old news for some of you, I just discovered there will soon be a line of World of Warcraft MegaBloks. You can totally learn more about that here: http://www.comicsalliance.com/2012/04/04/new-world-of-warcraft-mega-bloks-images/
Can’t write a real post today because I’m too busy gathering eggs. For one thing, this character has no holiday achievements and doing the quests is easy xp. For another, as a self-diagnosed mount addict, I MUST FIND MOUNT.
