I got a CD by Wishbone Ash today, named "Wishbone Four".  The only reason I got it is because I've heard they were an influence on Iron Maiden during their formative years.

It's garbage. :P
3422  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / New Alliance Race Will Be... The Draenei! on: May 10, 2006, 03:16:03 PM
This comes as no surprise.  If memory serves, right around the time the blood elves were revealed, some magazine said the Allaince would have the draenei...and summarily got hounded by Blizzard into retracting the statement.

I was hoping for ogres, personally. :P

Yeah, this one dumbass even managed to get himself slaughtered by like ten Defias after the Deadmines, out in the world.  What a douchebag. :P
3424  Media / The Soundroom / Something of interest for the metalhead guitarists out there on: May 09, 2006, 10:52:13 AM
This is pretty old, so you might have seen it before, but while perusing YouTube earlier I came across a pretty lenghty video interview/guitar lesson featuring Adrian Smith.

He doesn't sit down and discuss theory or anything like that, but he shares a few techniques and shows a few of the detuned Maiden riffs he plays these days.

Good stuff...even though I'm kinda irate that he can take a Squier Tele and a practice amp and sound heavier than I do with an SG and a Marshall stack. :P

I finished up getting my infernal tonight.  Wish I could saying dying all around the world in order to complete the quest was worth the end result, but I can't. :P

Danzig - Angel Blake

This song is a little ballsier than I remembered.  Good stuff.

Oops.  I meant to lock this before I went to sleep last night. :P

This is almost guaranteed to be locked, this question has been asked millions of times. :P

Nah, it's okay.  I can't recall it being done in a while, at least not on these newish boards.  I give this thread my Stamp of Indifference.

Well, we primarily play on the Alliance side, but all of us (except Dade, I think) have Hordelings to play on the side.  So no matter the faction you want to play as, we'll be around. :P
3430  The Rest / General Discussions / FFXI Opera House on: May 04, 2006, 04:15:39 PM
As much as I hate to admit that anything involving FFXI is interesting, that clip is...well, interesting.

With that said, I think it's hilarious that, even out of the context of the game, it still takes entirely too long for a group to beat the hell out of a single enemy. :P

People like this are why it explicitly says "Read this forum before you post a single word on these boards."

LOCKED =^.^=

Ok? So not meny people like the First Grandia? thats too bad but i'm not really here to talk about Grandia 2 or 3, if Grandia 4 has Justin in it then we'll talk about Grandia 4, i'm not saying there will be a Grandia 4, just if there is, ok so please leave Grandia 2 & 3 out of any of my topics, any way the last person seems to like Grandia 1,

What's this?  Do I see someone policing?  Good.  It's been a while since I've had to call someone out on it.

The last thing I need to see is someone bitching about how "their" precious topic is being ruined.  Two things:

1.  It's not like people just started randomly saying OMG GRANDIA 2.  It's called natural progression.  Conversations take on a life of their own.  It'd be ignorant to complain about it, especially since things aren't even that far removed from the intent of the original post.

2.  This is not "your" topic.  If it belongs to anyone, it belongs to me since it's on my boards.

Now then, carry on talking about this horrendous series. :P

I hope one of those "certain restrictions" isn't disallowing you to move a character from a PvP server to a PvE one.  I bet it is, though.

As much as I like my lock, I'd dump her in a heartbeat if I could get my mage off Shattered Hand. :P

Mercyful Fate - The Lady Who Cries

I swear to God, King Diamond is the only singer alive who could pull off this song without it sounding like a train wreck. :P
3435  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / The Misadventures of Alisandre, Part One of Fifty on: May 01, 2006, 02:52:05 PM
Meet Alisandre, Warlock of the Slutty Robes.  Unfortunately for this poor little gnome, the person who controls her really doesn't have a clue what he's doing at times.  As such, a simple quest to go look at an elite turtle turned into a continent-spanning orgy of confused exploration.

It was the Hinterlands, home of gryphons, trolls, and filthy dwarves.  The quest was simple:  find and take a photograph of Gammerita, a level 48 elite turtle.  As you might imagine, Gammerita had a serious issue with having her photo taken, and she went on the attack.  Like every warlock should be familiar with doing, I turned around and ran like a bitch.  And kept running.  And ran some more, because the damn thing was on me like a dog on a bone.

Once I finally came to a halt, I was in the far northeastern corner of the zone, well away from the safety that Aerie Peak provides.  Since I was so far away, and I had no real idea how to climb back up the cliffs I had dropped down to get to the turtle, I had a grand idea:  I'd swim north to the Eastern Plaguelands and get back to civilization that way.  My hearthstone was still cooling down, so I couldn't just zip back in a heartbeat.

Oh dear.

As most of you probably know (and I do now), the Eastern Plaguelands are landlocked.  But I had no idea.  So I swam and swam for what seemed like forever.  I saw no signs of any sort of civilization.  So I kept swimming.  And kept swimming.

I got my first glimpse of trouble when I saw that I was apparently swimming through solid ground.  But I persevered, continuing my long, arduous swim to something remotely resembling an actual zone.

Ah, there it was.  I got that lovely bit of text that said I was in the Eastern Plaguelands.  Finally, I just knew I'd find a beach of some sort so I could actually get on land.

I did.  Sorta.

Out of nowhere, about twenty minutes into this little jaunt, a night elven ruin appeared on the horizon.  No NPCs, no enemies; just me, my trusty felsteed, and an eerie sense that I was somewhere that I really wasn't meant to be.

(This area is found here on the world map, FYI.)

After seeing this, I got excited.  Surely now I was close to getting away from this damn swimming.  No such luck.  I kept swimming west, knowing that eventually I was bound to hit a zone, whether it was the actual Plaguelands or somewhere else.

Then I got some welcome text:  I had just entered Tirisfal Glades.  Lovely, I thought...but then I took around.  When I saw mountains in "Tirisfal" that put Ironforge to shame, I knew I should probably buckle down for an even longer haul across the seas.

So I did what anyone would do:  put myself on auto-run, open the map, and went to get some goddamn breakfast.

When I came back shortly thereafter, I was overjoyed.  I could actually see myself on a zone map.  But although I was in the water on the map, a quick cancellation showed that I was, in fact, standing on dry ground.  I despaired.

I shouldn't have.  The goal was near, the end was in sight.  Sure enough, within a few minutes, I was on soil that actually existed on a map, near a dead sea turtle just to the northwest of Scarlet Monastery.

It was about this time, when I opened my bags to set off fireworks, that I remembered the existence of my Ultrasafe Gadgetzan Transporter.  Oops. :P

So there you have it, a swim that nearly spanned a continent, seeing sights I'm willing to bet few people have seen before...namely miles and miles of uninhabited coastline and enough water to make you loathe the color blue. :P
