i hate april morons

Just for the sake of argument, let’s pretend that April Fool’s day “stories” on the internets were funny at one point. No matter how generous your definition of that date may be it’s still “a long fucking time ago”. You are all idiots. Shut up idiots. That is all.

why monopolies suck

I was on my way to a customer site today when the Cranberries “Linger” started playing. On TWO stations. Thanks ClearChannel! We sure owe you one… How is it that the FCC can spend so much energy keeping nipples and profanity off the air, but when it comes to something that’s actually profane they’re nowhere […]

look out! it’s a dramabomb!

Sigh. I keep guild drama off the front page most days, but sometimes it’s cathartic to just vent. I’m pretty sure no one from my guild actually reads these pages so the risk is pretty minimal. The core players in my guild have been around a long time, some going back years into EQ raiding […]

achievements that don’t suck

I know, I know – impossible, right? I don’t recall mentioning it here, but the achievement system in WoW 3.0+ left me largely unimpressed. It never really registered on my radar for that reason, but tonight I feel the need to brag just a little. Malediction the Undying A couple other people helped, too…

power, from a distance

President Obama was sworn in (twice) on Tuesday and apparently a few people wanted to share in the moment. Check out the images from GeoEye, especially that wide shot. Wow? Yeah. Wow is appropriate here. And, of course, I would be remiss in my duties if I did not also give due credit to the […]

the twilight has been assisted

We’re happily clearing heroic Naxx every week now so we’ve started peppering in more difficult Sartharion and Malygos attempts. Malygos is a beast in heroic and frankly pretty soul-crushing when shit takes a turn. If you give the thumbnail a whack and load up the hi-rez you can see the skeletons left over from the […]

holy crap

From the please be photoshopped department… Take a look at the bottom left of the hi-rez version – people sense that some shit is up.

and then there was one

First full clear of heroic Naxxramas is under our belts. Not nearly as hard as I expected, but still far easier than I’d have liked. Sapphiron was tough, especially since a great number of our players haven’t seen him in Naxx-10 yet either. No Calamity dropped; maybe next week 🙂 I’ll throw some pics up […]

the craft of war

This was posted up at MMO-Champion over the Christmas break. It’s really some of the best animation I’ve seen from ANY game so far so enjoy! Catch the HD version at this link. [vimeo 2625538 640 360] On a slightly related note, THAT is how rogues should be, none of this sissypansy dagger bullshit.
