Patch 3.3.3

So, I've been a huge fan of SLASH/dance's Frame of Mind video for a very long time. I can honestly say that it is one of THE most inspiring WoW machinimas I've ever seen. If you haven't seen that one, it is a MUST SEE...

But I have not been a very good SLASH/dance fan! D: I didn't realize that they made even more machinima-ey goodness 'til my friend, Baheena, posted Yesterday's News on her Facebook feed! Thanks, Baheena!

The above video is SLASH/dance's entry to the World of Warcraft Rise to Power Movie contest sponsered by Alienware. Although they didn't place, this machinima is definitely worth watching! Enjoy!

And for more SLASH/dance, visit their website!

Patch 3.3.2

Big plans for this weekend! Nuku is going up to visit his cousin and will be coming home with a new PC. His cousin is a computer tech./consultant, and he offered to put together a decent computer for me. It's not going to be top of the line, but it will be WAY faster than 2.2GHz, possibly triple if not quad core, and it will meet the only requirement I have for this machine: to be able to run WoW at full settings. I don't really play any other game, and we can't be spending a whole lot of money, so we figured that was a reasonable desire for our budget. No Farcry2 rig here, buuut I ain't cryin. ^_^

EDIT 03/20/2010 12:26AM: My love corrected me in a comment. But it's worth adding to the original post. Apparently I WILL be able to play FarCry2 at max settings. LOL. I obviously dunno anything about this stuff... ^_^

Here's what my sugar daddy..*cough* I mean, my husband is building for me today:
-Radeon HD 5770 GPU
-GIGABYTE GA-MA785G-UD3H Motherboard
-4GB Super Talent DDR3 Ram
-AMD Phenom II X3 CPU AMD Athlon II X4
-640GB Western Digital HD
-650W COOLER MASTER Single +12V Rail Power Supply

Smile! You're on Candid Camera!

Patch 3.3.2

*Gasp!* A backstage photo has been leaked onto the internet! At least its a good one right? The only other person allowed to even be in the dressing room with me is my man! So, I'm sure Nuku is partly to blame for this! XD

A little bit of roleplaying doesn't hurt now and again, right? =) Hope you like the "photo".

Changed my "Band Name"

Patch 3.3.2

Hey ppl, if you've linked my "artist" page anywhere, I changed my band name from "Ember Isolte" to "Girls Do Play WoW", so the url is no longer, it is now Sorry for the inconvenience, I just decided to rebrand myself early on and change the name to something more.. generic. =)

*Whispers* I really wanted to change the name to make it easier for me to come up with some kind of logo/memorable brand. You know, I was really inspired by PvPGurl, WoPairs, RavenSylphe, and all these other artists who have a certain look and feel, but for the life of me, I couldn't think of a good generic name... Even though it was staring me in the face on my blog!! So, I'm running with it. My lead singer is definitely always gonna be Isolte, but maybe with this new name I can work my other toons in as band members. ^_^

Patch 3.3.2

Testing out Simplaris Blogcast for Facebook. If it works, my "fan page" will be updated automatically once a day with new posts from this here li'l bloggy woggy. ^_^. Thank you, Donna, for suggesting the Facebook app. Here's hoping it works as well as I think it should. XD

EDIT Fri. March 12, 2010. 6:48AM: - Deleted. Found out Simplaris doesn't do auto pinging for blogs. I can get the same functionality from Facebook's included "Notes" tab. I just want to find an app that posts on my Wall when I update this blog. *Keeps searching*

Eiffel 65's Album "Europop" = Draenei

Patch 3.3.2

Just having a little fun relating Eiffel 65's album "Europop" to all things Draenei.

  1. "Blue (Da Ba Dee)" – Self explanatory
  2. "Too Much of Heaven" – C'mon. They're from outer space.
  3. "Dub in Life" – I dunno what this song is actually about.. but it's a good song, so just pretend it applies.
  4. "Living in a Bubble (feat. Papa Winnie)" – Draenei Paladins.
  5. "Move Your Body" – Female Draenei Dance. 'Nuff said.
  6. "My Console" – I know it's about PLAYSTATION, but the track title makes me think of spaceship control center.
  7. "Your Clown" – Male Draenei /silly.
  8. "Another Race" – *sings* "It's another race from outer space.." Draenei [period].
  9. "The Edge" – Their plight on Draenor.
  10. "Now Is Forever" – Draenei life on Azeroth.
  11. "Silicon World" – Draenic Technology?
  12. "Europop" – Another general, dancey song that can apply to any WoW race, so just pretend it applies.
  13. "Hyperlink (Deep Down)" – What happened to the Exodar.
  14. "Blue (Da Ba Dee)" (extended mix) – Self explanatory.

Isolte is...

Patch 3.3.2

... currently making new link buttons for the side bar. ^_^
Look over there *points* ======>

EDIT 8:00pm:
Silly The buttons finally look the way I want them to, but I had to edit them after uploading, so I re-uploaded them after deleting...whew. So, they look a little screwy now but as soon as photobucket catches up with me, I think they'll be all better. ^_^

Also, I do all my designy work on my Mac, so my blog is best viewed *drun roll please* ...on a Mac! (Tested in Safari 4.0.4, Firefox 3.5.7, and Chrome 5.0.307.110). Also tested in the most recent versions of Firefox and Internet Explorer for WindowsXP and Vista... though I really do believe it just looks better on a Mac. Lol. Fonts just don't look the same on a PC as they do on a Mac =/. Oh well. I try my best to make it all pretty for you PC users since most of you are! XD
