WoW Insider's Cataclysm Launch Giveaway: Ethereal Portal loot code {WoW}

Dec 7th 2010 10:56PM She asks me why
I'm just a hairy guy
I'm hairy noon and night
Hair that's a fright
I'm hairy high and low
Don't ask me why
Don't know
It's not for lack of break
Like the Grateful Dead
Darling

Gimme head with hair
Long beautiful hair
Shining, gleaming,
Streaming, flaxen, waxen

Give me down to there hair
Shoulder length or longer
Here baby, there mama
Everywhere daddy daddy

Hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair
Flow it, show it
Long as God can grow it
My hair

Let it fly in the breeze
And get caught in the trees
Give a home to the fleas in my hair
A home for fleas
A hive for bees
A nest for birds
There ain't no words
For the beauty, the splendor, the wonder
Of my...

Hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair
Flow it, show it
Long as God can grow it
My hair

I want it long, straight, curly, fuzzy
Snaggy, shaggy, ratty, matty
Oily, greasy, fleecy
Shining, gleaming, streaming
Flaxen, waxen
Knotted, polka-dotted
Twisted, beaded, braided
Powdered, flowered, and confettied
Bangled, tangled, spangled, and spaghettied!

Oh say can you see
My eyes if you can
Then my hair's too short

Down to here
Down to there
Down to where
It stops by itself

They'll be ga ga at the go go
When they see me in my toga
My toga made of blond
Brilliantined
Biblical hair

My hair like Jesus wore it
Hallelujah I adore it
Hallelujah Mary loved her son
Why don't my mother love me?

Hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair
Flow it, show it
Long as God can grow it
My hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair
Flow it, show it
Long as God can grow it
My hair

Dec 7th 2010 8:20AM I am the very model of a modern Major-General
I've information vegetable, animal, and mineral
I know the kings of England, and I quote the fights historical
From Marathon to Waterloo, in order categorical

I'm very well acquainted, too, with matters mathematical
I understand equations, both the simple and quadratical
About binomial theorem I'm teeming with a lot o' news
With many cheerful facts about the square of the hypotenuse

With many cheerful facts about the square of the hypotenuse
With many cheerful facts about the square of the hypotenuse
With many cheerful facts about the square of the hypotepotenuse

I'm very good at integral and differential calculus
I know the scientific names of beings animalculous
In short, in matters vegetable, animal, and mineral
I am the very model of a modern Major-General

In short, in matters vegetable, animal, and mineral
He is the very model of a modern Major-General

I know our mythic history, King Arthur's and Sir Caradoc's
I answer hard acrostics, I've a pretty taste for paradox
I quote in elegiacs all the crimes of Heliogabalus
In conics I can floor peculiarities parabolous

I can tell undoubted Raphaels from Gerard Dows and Zoffanies
I know the croaking chorus from the Frogs of Aristophanes
Then I can hum a fugue of which I've heard the music's din afore
And whistle all the airs from that infernal nonsense Pinafore

And whistle all the airs from that infernal nonsense Pinafore
And whistle all the airs from that infernal nonsense Pinafore
And whistle all the airs from that infernal nonsense Pinapinafore

Then I can write a washing bill in Babylonic cuneiform
And tell you ev'ry detail of Caractacus's uniform
In short, in matters vegetable, animal, and mineral
I am the very model of a modern Major-General

In short, in matters vegetable, animal, and mineral
He is the very model of a modern Major-General

In fact, when I know what is meant by "mamelon" and "ravelin"
When I can tell at sight a Mauser rifle from a javelin
When such affairs as sorties and surprises I'm more wary at
And when I know precisely what is meant by "commissariat"

When I have learnt what progress has been made in modern gunnery
When I know more of tactics than a novice in a nunnery
In short, when I've a smattering of elemental strategy
You'll say a better Major-General had never sat a gee

You'll say a better Major-General had never sat a gee
You'll say a better Major-General had never sat a gee
You'll say a better Major-General had never sat a sat a gee

For my military knowledge, though I'm plucky and adventury
Has only been brought down to the beginning of the century
But still, in matters vegetable, animal, and mineral
I am the very model of a modern Major-General

But still, in matters vegetable, animal, and mineral
He is the very model of a modern Major-General

The Shattering plot summary: Garrosh and Cairne {WoW}

Nov 2nd 2010 5:01AM This feels like a forced, although well written, attempt to shoe horn in likability to what has consistently been a linear character. Did Garrosh get a Campbell's condense soup version of the treatment Scrooge got, at some point here? It smells of Trope "Character Derailment"

As a side note the full letter to Magatha doesn't sound right. It sounds more like some diplomatic "[F-Bomb] You" that a High Elf or Alliance figure would say. Rather than a note of displeasure of having been robbed of a clean fight, that would be more in tune of how Garrosh would word things. He calls my Queen a "bitch", I doubt he'd be so elegant in his wording.

Breakfast Topic: What does your class choice say about you? {WoW}

Oct 11th 2010 2:36AM DPS DK w/ tank-ish solo alt spec
hunter w/ bear as primary pet choice

Reasons;
Paralleling real life, in game I frequently end up setting off on my own adventures, due to a small pool of friends, and a natural loner streak. Thus I have a natural affinity for classes that are durable for solo'ing.

sub breakdowns;
The DK is definitely wrought from my more malicious, brooding & violent tenancies, and a blood-lust that's been both a boon & a liability at times. (contrary to what the misguided believe it's not video games that made me violent, rather going to school & getting jumped frequently is the main genesis of these traits).

The hunter is a strait manifestation of my more nature connected, self sufficient, fairly misanthropic, Neo-Luddite side. (yes I understand the ironic juxtaposition here) The back woods with minimal equipment is my other habitat :)


As for religious/philosophical sway, I'll be playing a shaman &/or druid when Cata launches.

side note regarding religion: I don't care too much what people believe in for the most part, as long as they are not waving it in people's faces (I abstain from voting for any politician that tries to use their religion as a reason why I should vote for them) or committing proselytism.

Cataclysm Beta: Death knight talents and specializations {WoW}

Jul 15th 2010 11:13PM WTB Corpse Explosion... that talent was a the buku-fun button for Unholy tree, and maid raid wipes a mini-game to see how many people i could 'splode

Cataclysm Beta: New 31-point talent trees, spec bonuses and more {WoW}

Jul 14th 2010 10:39PM Yes i under stand these are still subject to change and some aren't finished.

Hunter looks lackluster and unimaginative imho

DK... I want my Corpse Explosion! that talent single handedly made DK's a riot to play when a raid starts going to hell. I managed to CE 21 people on a failed Thadius attempt once.. That had me laughing the rest of the night.

At current I'm just not seeing anything in my fav classes that says "fun!" :(

Blood Sport: Arenas might be awesome in Cataclysm {WoW}

Jul 6th 2010 12:39AM I second this notion. Been digging Beirut for some time. I got stopped by the cops once for having Mount Wroclai cranked too loud as I was driving through town. The officer was nice and let me off with a warning because I wasn't playing "overly bass heavy crap" as he put it.

Cataclysm Class Changes: Death Knight {WoW}

Apr 9th 2010 1:45AM Tentatively, I don't like this resource change. I rather like the current system, and this newer system sounds like they're trying to shoehorn DK's in a more rogue like resource play style. Which after playing a rogue for 60levels.. I do not like.. this also makes me dred the Hunter changes (as I fear we'll be ranged rogues at worse, ranged warriors at best). I don't want to be one of those "OMGWTF!!eleventy!Bliz ruining my class" types, but if by their own admission the current system works.. Why are they doing such a drastic overhaul? It seems like a waste of time & resources, id est: they're reinventing the wheel.

Instead of pushing us into using partial runes (a logical guess), it would be better (in my opinion) to give us a bigger base RP bar, and add / tweak RP based abilities to use when runes are on CD. e.g. : something like RP abilities do extra damage when runes are on CD or something of that ilk. (In theory anyway) Making it beneficial to use RP as an alternating source of damage that would more or less eliminate this "wasted potential damage." This (again in speaking theoretically) could also provide an avenue for tweaking the "bursty-ness" of damage output, or out right evening out the damage output instead of oscillating between high & low output.

my apologies if that was hard to follow, I just got back from the bar so its even more likely that this won't make as much sense to others as it does in my head.
