Figured I would post. Once in a blue moon and all that...
I am interested to see next week's Doctor Who. This is the episode in which my "always seeing James Bond actors as James Bond" goes up against "always seeing Doctor Who actors as Doctor Who." Now granted, a lot of Doctors don't go on to play big time roles (I do get a chuckle thinking about the Doctor as a Death Eater). I get the feeling, "James Bond is a Timelord, it all makes sense now," may occur. I just hope the return of the Timelords (if it happens as such), is more "We're fucking Timelords and prepared for this shit" and less, "we have this super magical deus ex machina is this room over here."
Also, "Sherlock Holmes" is a fun romp. While I am no Sherlock nerd or anything, it was nice to see Sherlock and Watson kick some ass and take some names, like the real men of action they are in the books (admittedly it has been a while since I have read any of them). This next part may be a bit SPOILER-Y. I almost wished that Guy Ritchie would of left more of the mystical tint at the end of the movie. I think I could of lived with a re-imagining which Holmes has a bit more Cthulhu mythos tinge. The "magic" is all revealed as clever tricks and science. Which is fine, except a fair portion of them the audience has no chance at figuring out since they didn't get all the information either through omission (bad story telling, bad) or have no hope of getting (no smell-o-vision movies).

I apparently caught up to the idiots on Shadow Council with my Death Knight. Was trying to finish up Dragonblight on Sat. through severe lag and competing with 5 or more people on each quest. On top of that, it was Barrens chat night, except less amusing. I also had a lvl 76 warlock pestering me (a lvl 74) for help to take down some 74 elite. Now I have no issue being a meat-shield, but a 'lock asking for help screams 'PHai1' and I can't be bothered to spend 30 mins trying to help some guy with something that any competent player can solo
So back to Argent Dawn. Time to give my pally some lovin' Need to steal a Greench kill anyway.
Edit to add: Wrathgate is A-W-E-awesome. The follow up, not so much. Basically, playing through events that more or less returns everything to the status quo is sort of hollow. While I know why they can't, it is still a storytelling let down.

In case people happen to be looking for me! Which is likely not the case!
Play Warhammer Online!
Server: Phoenix Throne - Order
Jaspur - Witch Hunter
Oswalt - Engineer
Maerika - Warrior Priest
Stormgrinder - Ironbreaker
Those are the 4 most likely characters I will be on. I have a smattering of others. I can't even remember my Destruction character names.

Scala & Kolacny Brothers
is a Belgian girls choir. They do covers.
I also suggest checking out "With or Without You" and "Creep." I could probably link them, but you are all grown up now and can use the internet on your own.

So yeah, I just realized that one of my domains expired. Specifically, the domain I use on my LJ contact address. Not that I think anyone really tries to holler at me through LJ, but if you tried to since like April, I didn't get it. :)
"Dude, what does mine say?"
"Forsooth. What does mine say?"
"Verily. What does mine say?"
"Forsooth. No, what does mine say!?"

For the 4 of you in Pittsburgh that read this still...
Thinking about drinks/dinner/whatever for my birthday on the 27th. Drop a comment with ideas or interest. If nothing else it is a Friday night. Come get blitzed!
This is probably one of the best put together WoW vid I have seen....

(Speaker warning! Dropping Bass. No I mean it!)
In other news, Age of Conan is going pretty well. Having a good time giving dudes a beat down. Other than a few graphical glitches that updating my vid drivers appears to have fixed, I haven't had any problems. I am still working through the single player quests, but for the 3 or 4 of you that may think about buying it, I am on server Zug. It is PvE, but the RP servers are all FFA PvP so f' that.

Yes, what ever cell phone ad had me looking around for a song. This is a good dub-remix. NSFW on the basis of your coworkers will think you are into freaky doll bdsm.
