Game On!

Patch 3.3.5

Glad I decided to go back and check Twitter this morning or else I would have missed this tweet by the loverly @madcowsummer:
Full of squee! New music vid "Game On" from @feliciaday and The Guild: It's so very deliciously Bollywood! #GAMEON

And for your [hopefully] viewing and listening pleasure...

<a href="" target="_new" title="Season 4 - Music Video - &quot;Game On&quot;">Video: Season 4 - Music Video - &quot;Game On&quot;</a>

As a fan of the web series, The Guild, and also a fan of Bollywood productions I totally dig this video. And the fact that my geeky-girly tastes are constantly being validated by my game-girl idol, Felicia Day, makes my existence a lot more happy. XD

Patch 3.3.5

Just a quick question that I do not expect quick answers for: What do you do when someone starts to RP with you to the point that they're [annoyingly] emoting FOR you?

Example: "AnnoyingRPer sheaths his sword after the kill while Isolte's eyes meet his with a shocked and slightly excited gleam in them." Please gag me with a totem!

RealID 2

Patch 3.3.5

Well, Blizzard heard us and they listened. Just take a sec to show your appreciation over on the forums, cuz it's the least we can do after bitching at them. ^_^

Patch 3.3.5

Just to let you guys know where I stand on this RealID business.

Although I think its great that people have a choice to use it in-game or not, and though there is the option of NOT posting on the forums anymore, I think the idea of forcing people to post under real names in the future is just plain stupid for a number of reasons...

1. Anonymity - A lot of WoWers play the game to escape from reality, and those who post on the forums, will have to just stop if they want to keep their real life separated from their game life. Not to mention there are RP forums..for role playing.. hello?

2. Trolling *rolls eyes* - Blizzard says it will reduce trolling.. Yes it will reduce trolling ON BLIZZARD FORUMS. Just because the trolls will choose not to post (for fear of exposing themselves) does NOT mean they won't keep READING and possibly trolling good posters elsewhere, like social networking sites a simple Google search would bring up under the person's real name (if they use it for social networking of course,) especially with the new ammunition of having someone's real name in their hands.

3. Privacy - It's just a downright invasion of privacy. Aren't there laws against this kinda stuff? You'd think after the whole Facebook fiasco, Blizzard (and all other companies planning to "socialize" their networks) would learn that privacy is very important to their users... But that just makes sense, right?

Anyway, I was going to let my subscription just keep going, but as it is, I canceled so that Blizz won't have my money ('til I decide to play again of course). ^_^ I'll most likely still come back for Brewfest since I don't want to wait another year to get the Reins of the Violet Proto Drake.. But anyway.. Poop in Blizzard's eye.

Thank You

Patch 3.3.3

Hey y'all. Just wanted to say thank you to all of you. I hate blanket-thanking you, because I'd like each and every one of you to know just how much your support means to me, but that would take me days to write out each individual conversation I'd like to have.. So, I hope you understand.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for your support. <3 You really know how to make a girl feel grounded/centered. I don't know what I would do without your support.

Thank you for reading, following, poking, liking and all that other good e-stuff! I'm genuinely sorry that I have nothing more to give you than a "Thanks" at the moment.

Weta Legs... Continued XD

Youre all probably tired of hearing it, but I actually have potentially good news regarding the stilts that I thought I'd never have.

I commented on a video of the stilts on YouTube that the inventor, Kim Graham, posted, saying that I was a customer.. it's a shame Weta is no longer making them.. and that I'd like to know if she's looking for another company to produce them. She replied! Basically saying she's looking for another company but hopes in the meantime to build them herself and for me to "drop her a line."

I emailed her directly today and she already replied! Nothing set in stone as far as getting the commission on these yet, but my spirits have been lifted being able to work with her directly. ^_^
