So there was once this blogging friend of mine that I knew I could take at his word.
But it appears he found a closet…
Called it away from town… (more…)
So just for the record… yes I have a Warlock, an Affliction Warlock..
But I am wondering what rock the Bear has been hibernating under, because the rest of you you know I have had it for a long time.. some time in 2008 I started my Lock Twinking adventures with Twinking your level 19 Warlock: Part 1. Introduction. The thing is, I could never bring myself to finish the experience, so the Lock was languishing at level 17 for 4 years.
There has been a long quiet spell in our guild lately and Dara and I found ourselves playing BGs over and over again… it was starting to get stale. One of the problems with BGs is the scenery doesn’t change too often, so I decided to change the personal scenery and add the Lock to my BG stables (currently housing Mage, Shaman, Druid, and an unloved DK).
So the Lock got dragged out of storage, Dara dug up her young Shaman and we started the leveling process.
Not long after that we rerolled… Did I say I liked the Lock?
Now we had two alts each, A Lock and a Pally for me… A Shaman and a Rogue for Dara… leveling in tandem.
One of the advantages of leveling on one character for 5 levels, then switching to the other, is there isn’t much time to get sick of the 1st one… at the 1st sign of boredem, we just switch toons.
One of the disadvantages is it feels like we just completed that painful collection quest… oh yeah we did… on the other toons.
There was a moment, early on, where I found myself face to face with a Horde Mage in WSG.
So I killed a Mage!
and yes I liked it.
Stupid Mage should have iceblocked…
Our “juniors” are now well into their 70′s and some things are very clear now (more…)
I don’t know when the last time was I looked at my blogroll.
To be honest, I don’t know when the 1st time was that I did a cleanse, maybe today was the 1st time, whatever the case it was a little soul destroying.
My mother was 87 when she died. There were times when the subject of her friends would come up, often in relation to her moving somewhere more manageable, maybe closer to her friends.
It was times like these that her eyes would gloss over, the tears welling in her eyes.
Her friends of course were gone. The world moves on, time passes, lives end and of course, relative to this post, blogs stop.
Often they just stop.
One of the hard parts about cleansing the blogroll was checking each blog.
There were a couple of bloggers that appeared to have just stopped on their “best post”. They are posts I remember well, even years down the track, posts I a confident received links from WoWInsider, they were just that good.
But… that was it… stopped… gone… but yet, still on my blog roll.
I wouldn’t have looked at the blogroll for a while to come if it wasn’t for Daraiste asking me the other day.
What will happen when you stop blogging… will your posts still be there?
I wasn’t sure what she meant and when I pressed her she responded with.. (more…)
A note for Bill Hick’s fans, this isn’t a post about Bill may he R.I.P. (or rant and rail as he sees fit).
Klep (and others for that matter) questioned my tone the other day and my reply was that I wrote in my voice. I knew what I meant but was grasping for ways to illustrate my point.
That was until Monday while listening to a 2 hour long Joe Rogan Experience podcast when the subject of Bill Hicks came up.
For those of you unaware of Bill Hicks he was a comedian from the U.S. bible belt with decidedly un-bible belt material.
One of the things they touched on in the podcast was Bill’s ability to clear the audience from a room (more…)
It’s my party and I’ll write if I want to…
So apparently these days it’s inappropriate to celebrate achievements…
Don’t celebrate Battlemaster because a lot of people don’t PvP, which is unfair on them and might discourage them from entering the Battlegrounds. Hell, even those that do love Battlegrounds might get discouraged when you provide them with a role model and encouragement (more…)
I interrupt my irregular post schedule to let you all know something…
It’s something I have been meaning to say for ages, but I never knew how to approach the topic.
I have been blessed today, as one of the 25% of my regular commenter demographic (spammers) has dropped by to just say it out loud.
Apologies to the non-bloggers amongst you, this post is really for bloggers.
The Meme has passed, so what now?
I say fight, but you may feel better with love. From a blogging perspective it’s all the same to me.
(I know, ironic… but I bet I’m not alone)
The Godmother suggested there was more space for more memes, but I disagree (and in so doing, I am meeting the requirements of this post).
For me link love and link “hate” are much better meme surrogates. It is significantly more interesting, to write and to read (especially for the non-blogger), yet allows us to pepper our posts with a selection of links to bloggers old and new that may agree or disagree with our views.
I guess I must at this point declare my lack of interest in reading blogs, any blogs really. At one point in time I would try my best to churn through 60 blog posts a day. While it was interesting it contributed to blogging burnout. If I don’t have time to write a post, then taking the time to read 60 others is really quite insane.
… but they would just be the same words that have been spoken by my lover’s lover.
So, without wasting a moment more of your time, I will pass you over to Bear, who on this subjects speaks for me.
He’s like a brother from another litter.
Gnomer and Out!
PS: Thanks to Lisa and Anne for arranging an awesome piece about the Sixth meme at WoWInsider… guess Martha has to make some room for them on the tree as well! WoW bloggers take off and unite with Sixth meme
