WoW Moviewatch: Ninja Raiders [Update] {WoW}

Jan 15th 2010 2:22PM """I read your comment, and for someone who doesn't keep track of what Michael Gray does, you seem intent on telling him how to do it."""

So because I suggested a new video be featured on the spotlight each time, I am telling someone what to do? As far as I can see here, respectful feedback from faithful readers is encouraged, and allowed.

"""As I stated, Michael Gray doesn't spend all day on MovieWatch. People send him links, presumably he watches it and features the good ones (and, occasionally, the mediocre or "it's my first time" ones). This movie, despite being featured once, is still regularly sent to MovieWatch. This could be due (in part) to the original post occurring while people were on holiday (Dec. 22). As a high quality video, a second blog entry would still be informative to many while hopefully not offending the sensibilities of those who have seen it before."""

Who are you explaining all of these inner-most details for, yourself? People here who just want to see new content featured on already understand this. You are getting just a scosche too into this here my friend.

"""Also, despite the fact that you don't actively seek out machinima, you seem to have knowledge of a large cache of unseen, quality, WoW-related movies that MovieWatch should be featuring instead. Assuming you weren't simply being hyperbolic or hypothetical, I would suggest that you send these links to MovieWatch so that they could be featured.""""

Pardon me for assuming there are more videos out there in the huge world of the internet to be featured than the exact one twice in the same month. You keep suggesting I send him a video, are you claiming he is out of videos to show? That's why he reposted? That's clearly not the case, in fact it goes against your entire point. I know I often go out on a limb with my thinking, but wooh, the one that other videos exist that warrant attention must be too extreme for you to comprehend .. I don't need to seek out videos to have that understanding. Furthermore, there is no need to get all pyscho-analytical, or come to the defense of the writer. There is nothing mean spirited, or authoritative about my ideal, nor am I misinformed .. I simply enjoy watching new videos when they are featured here and look forward to something I haven't seen before.

Jan 15th 2010 1:08PM Maybe you didn't read my comment Qot .. I stated that "I don't seek out WoW movies" and that is why I liked the section here at, because it exposed me to them. I am not here to keep tabs on what or what not Michael Gray does, or does not get paid to do. I don't see the fact that he writes other sections here as a valid reason to re-blog the same video twice .. and I don't think that's what he is claiming. He just wanted to show it again, because he really was impressed by it. But that's what archives are for, the content isn't lost, it's still here.

All I was saying is: yes, there are many unseen videos out there never featured, so let's see a new one each week shall we? I don't think that's an outlandish notion or suggestion.

WoW Moviewatch: Ninja Raiders [Update] {WoW}

Jan 15th 2010 12:45PM To clarify from my previous entry, I truly love this section on because I never seek out machinema on my own .. yet every time I watch one of these clips, I enjoy it immensely. That being said, with so many wonderful, unseen WoW videos out there on the net, I just don't see the need to feature the exact video twice within the same month .. even if it's the holy grail of WoW videoism, it would seem logical to shine a spotlight on something not previously featured on the blog.

The Twelve Days of Winter Veil: Day twelve loot code giveaway {WoW}

Dec 22nd 2009 11:39AM I'd love this, would match well with my herbal heal :) is LFM: Priest and Hunter columnists {WoW}

Dec 4th 2009 11:07PM I threw my name in the hat for the Priest column. I co-host the Video Game Outsiders and Warcraft Outsiders podcasts and appeared on the WoW Insider show this summer. My priest Chelley is the GM of The Illuminati Order on shadowsong, a guild for friends and fans of the VGO/WCO podcast and blog.

I'd love to be able to infuse some humor into the Priest column like some have suggested here. Time and time again I hear from my listeners that they love because of the great writing that's accessible to everyone from casual to hardcore. From what I gather, if people want heavy details they go to sites like EJ. WoW Insider, to me, is about not only being informative, but also just plain fun and interesting to read. I would also like to see more female writers get the shot to talk about games as well.

Good luck with everything Brig, we enjoyed having you on the WCO podcast. Actually, I think my co-host John has a bromance/man-crush on you!
