All I can say is wow…. (wipes drool from chin)
I’ve played World of Warcraft for over 3 years now. I started on the UK Servers and then moved to the US servers. I’ve met hundreds of people in that time. Sadly, not one of them told me about the Level 90 Elite Tauren Chieftain that play at 8pm server time every day. The play an actual song called “Power of the Horde”.
It wasn’t until I started looking for pictures of drum kits to use on my blog that I stumbled upon this not so hidden but awesome tidbit in Warcarft. As I remember seeing a drum kit for WoW while doing one of the many runs through Blackrock Depths. It was in The Grim Guzzler bar. Upon further reading I found this little piece of info:
My Warlock Kyllia just happens to have one of those remotes. So I took a trip on down to watch the show.
Contrary to belief of people I know, I’m not that big into WoW as they may think. Turns out this is a real life band comprised of Blizzard Employees that play at all the Blizzcons and have a number of other Warcraft songs they play.
When I went to add this post, all there are on YouTube are old versions of this video in crappy size. So after 3 days of fighting with a way to convert Fraps (and clip together as it made 3 segments), I uploaded it today to YouTube in HD format
I’ve had some time now to really think about things. Now that the initial flames from my nearly fatal incident. That and everything else that was flooding my mind. All in all, it’s nearly over. Time for me to begin fresh one last time. I realize that I really only have a few years left in this world, and while I mean to squeeze out every last minute by losing weight, eating better, continue walking and being more active. Time to make new friends and re-embrace the family that loves me regardless of my recent situations. Everyone involved knows exactly what I mean by that. Those who don’t, simply need to ask me or watch and learn
For many years I’ve chased the dream of a wife and kids. Three failed marriages and many bad decisions later, I realize that perhaps I was just not cut out for it. Short of death, communications have been lacking. I love my kids regardless of what they may think of me. I love the kids that were never mine as if they were. They are all grown now and on to lives of their own. I wish them all the luck in the world not to repeat my mistakes. While to many this isn’t the highest of goals to achieve. However, the caveats are that, I never wanted to be rich. I was always happy so long as the bills were paid and I could come home to them every night. That was good enough for me, but it seems never good enough for the ones I chose as my partners. They always wanted more. For better or for worse meant nothing to them. When the worse came, they up and moved on. Claiming things like we grew apart. We didn’t grow apart, they simply wanted more financial stability. Proving repeatedly that money means more than love. I’m hurt emotionally, but I’m surviving. However I am changing my goals. I’m not changing who I am. I still welcome someone to love me. However they must love me as I am.
I want to finish my movie. Really it’s just a short film. Something I wrote the script for in 2007. I even went as far as finding voice actors on the net to cover the parts of the callers, the narrator and other fill-ins. The film itself is nearly done short of needing an actor, and two extras. A place to shoot, some props and an HD video camera with some software. OK, so it’s only half done. I stopped when I realized the equipment I bought was defective and couldn’t get the company Samsung to do anything about it. With lack of further funds to buy a new camera, I stopped the project and all but forgot about it. It’s time to dust the pages off, buy a new camera, find some college students eager to make YouTube gold.
It’s about a tongue and cheek look at a support tech and his typical day and how customers could make life so much easier by simply following some rules. The Ten Rules for Calling Tech Support. Anyone who has seen the script loved it. I’m sure it won’t win me any awards, it will still be a load of fun for everyone involved as well as those who watch the finished product. This is my first goal. Anyone who can contribute in any way are welcome to do so. Please contact me!
My second goal will require me to save up a few bucks first and buy an old used drum kit. Because I want to join a band. I don’t want to join a band trying to be famous like I did in years past. I just want the group of guys who get together on weekends and jam out in a garage or warehouse somewhere. Perhaps like in high school, perhaps play at private parties or small gatherings if we happen to be any good. This would be more of a social experience for me than a venture to make money. Relive the glory days a bit. I don’t think I’ll ever be as good as my son on the skins, though perhaps someday I can really sit down and show him his old man can and has. One thing I gave up to be the dad was my drum kit. So my children really never have seen or heard me play outside of a Drumscape machine at the Busch Gardens arcade. Rock on!
I remember well the days of being picked on by my classmates. Bullied (back when we weren’t wimpy little sods that cry on the internet about bullies and all that boo-hoo bullshit we’ve got going on now) about being a nerd, and a geek that played Dungeons and Dragons, and we used computers before the internet and before flipping Facebook. I get a kick how now all those people who ridiculed me and my friends, now need our help on a daily basis. Because now Geeks are cool
My musical tastes are somewhat vast. Rock, Metal, Jazz and even some Rhythmic Tourette’s Syndrome (commonly known as Rap) along with even harder to believe (for me that is) Country music, as well as some Classical bits are included. My current favorite band has recently changed. It used to be the Foo Fighters. Dave Grohl and company are still quite kick-ass, but their last two albums just didn’t do it for me.
I’m quickly becoming a huge Sick Puppies fan. And while this song isn’t real recent, it certainly covers how I feel today.
As always, my Lord and Master Foamy, has once again read my intimate thoughts (fourth paragraph) and has put it in perspective for the masses with an IQ higher than a bagel has.
If your life could have a reboot button, like the one in this Foamy Cartoon, would you use it?
Many, many times I have sat and wished I had done things differently. Taken better care of my health, made different choices concerning relationships, career choices and many, many more. In short would I use a reboot button? Hell Yeah!
Yeah I’m a tad late on realizing this. Sorry. But I’ve been watching Felicia Day and crew since it began 5 years ago! It’s something I’ve been able to relate to and enjoy the cute little webisodes they make.
