Saw these in a Bay Area mall and had to share, because they were the most entertaining and colorful voting posters I’ve seen in a long time. They are courtesy of the California Museum, so I guess it’s still backed by the state, but it’s refreshing after all the texty tabloidy...

We have apparently entered the compound word phase. Which would be great except that the words are still somewhat questionable at best. For instance, Blob cannot pronounce “ankka” so ducks are now “kakka”. Which can be somewhat confusing, especially when we are trying to ...

You’ve probably seen The Guild, a wildly popular web series about a group of MMORPG players that play a game similar to WoW. If you haven’t and you play any sort of game in the genre, you really should. They started doing little music videos as bonus features in the past year, probably as a result of their getting more budget and having better equipment/sets/costumes/crew/etc. The writing has always been hilarious, though, and the lyrics for this video are no exception.

I like Gaga. She makes sparkly, bouncy music and knows the value of elaborate and sometimes garish costumes. I also like WoW. It is sparkly and bouncy in its own special way, and the whole point of the game is to play through content so you can wear increasingly elaborate and garish costumes. This music video parody is the mating of two of  my favorite things into one wacky video of awesome. I dare you not to end up humming this all day after watching it.

The boy pointed this out to me earlier today and it really is one of the most hilarious WoW-related skits I’ve seen in a while. Dating n00bs is dangerous territory, yo.

Hmm. If the above embed doesn’t work, it is up on Youtube here.

The internet is a great place for making friends. And sometimes more than friends. Even the really nice ones you don’t have to pay for! Don’t know how? That’s okay, because you can Google a guide for that, too!

Need more help? Two undead guys even wrote a really awesome guide, divided into three levels of increasing difficulty. Ignore the stupider comments — no thread can be all win, I suppose.

1. How to pick up women, WoW-style.
2. How to date women, WoW-style.
3. Dating women (heroic level), WoW-style.

And although the above can also be just as easily reversed for the ladies, I’ll also trot out an old classic:

A Girl’s Guide to Geek Guys

There you are, get crackin’! *raises eyebrow in general direction of a low-level pally friend*

There are many good reasons not to play hide-and-go-seek with your favorite pet war mammoth. Large fines from the city for having to unlodge said mammoth from the places it managed to squeeze itself into? Definitely one of them. Or perhaps, like in this picture, having to call out all of the combined fire brigades from Stormwind, Westfall and surrounding towns to get the damn thing back down from the tree once it realized it couldn’t climb. Mental note, we’re just buying Jumbo here a bag of peanuts to keep him amused next time.

According to the wonky new Armory, my hunter is sporting the “BM 19/26/47″ build as her primary spec. It’s early in the morning, sure, but even I knew something was wrong with those numbers.

Galena's BM 19/26/47

/does some quick calculations

Yes, I am apparently level 101. Woo-ha! Okay, Blizz, I guess I can forgive you all that nerf business if this is the way you see fit to recompense me.

…of course, I wouldn’t refuse if you threw in a free spirit beast too, eh? ;-)

I’ve been using the term “basement monkey” for the past year without really stopping to think where I got it from. Lately, however, I’ve had a few people ask me to stop and repeat it, making me think that the term is not as widespread as I’d assumed. I’m pretty sure I can’t assume responsibility for its creation, but I thought I’d provide a more thorough definition for those who requested it. ;-)

Main Entry: base·ment mon·key
Pronunciation: \bās-mənt\ \məŋ-kē\
Function: noun
Inflected Form(s): plural basement monkeys
Etymology: probably first appeared in the official WoW forums at some undetermined time in the past few years; of derisive origin; akin to Basement Jockey, except much more annoying
Date: circa 2008

1: A semi-human primate mammal that spends most of its time playing video games and considers itself so “hard core” that it “pwns” everything and everybody in their immediate 500 yard radius by merely looking at them. Often has only a vestigial ability to spell and use correct grammar, a direct result of spending too much time pounding attack hotkeys and too little time formulating conversational speech. Is often fond of Chuck Norris jokes, making racist/sexist/classist and/or homophobic slurs, and generally being a giant jerk-of-all-trades. Is typically very insecure of onself in reality and hides behind inflated alter ego to compensate.

Identification: Basement monkeys are typically young middle-class Western Caucasian males (though the latest figures have shown an alarming spread of the species across various ethnicities and continents in recent times) with a history of interest in fantasy/sci-fi novels and computer programming. They disdain authority, general society, and hygiene. They feel no need to be considerate of other people, either in reality or online. Usually have severe anger management issues as a result of little to no proper social conditioning.

Habitat: Basement monkeys typically live in the basement of their mother’s or other relations’ house. [See also: crowded nest syndrome.] This is because they have no job and no girlfriend, so lack both motivating factors to move out and the financial means to do so. This turns into a self-perpetuating cycle.

Diet: Basement monkeys are typically omnivorous scavengers who feed off the leavings of other members of the household. When they have to forage for their own meals, they rapidly inhale sub-nutritional snack foods so that they have more time to be on the computer. Caffeine is also an essential part of most diets, since they need the jittery boost to stay up until wee hours playing in PvP competitions.

Reproduction: Basement monkeys reproduce asexually or through cyberporn. This is because most of these creatures have personalities that will never attract a mate in real life. They recruit more of their kind by infecting like-minded players online, much in the manner of an internet virus seeking new hosts. A sizable percentage of basement monkeys use sexual mimcry to attract potential recruits, usually by playing avatars with big breasts who like to run around starting areas in little to no clothing and dance on mailboxes.

Well, it looked awesome when we picked it out at the saleslot. Shiny new status symbol, what’s not to like? It doesn’t even guzzle gas, though it does seem to provide a lot of it after a large meal… surely the stable hands knew how to deal with that anyway. Perhaps we should have thought about where to park it, though…

War Mammoths — bigger might be better, but when you can’t get through simple doorways, it’s as embarrassing as trying to fit a Hummer in a compact space at the grocery store. Sigh.

He appeared out of nowhere on a lazy January evening, and forever changed the way we would see ghouls.

Well, okay, let me rephrase that.

1. We’re not entirely sure if it’s a he or a she, it’s hard to tell when everything’s rotted off. The undead are funny that way.
2. I suppose that to be more accurate, it appeared out of a handful of corpse dust. Or possibly one of our dead guildies.
3. It was only lazy that evening because a good percentage of the raid spent part of the time wiping the floor with their faces. Sigh.

But anyways!

Other ghouls had come and gone, but none capture our imaginations — and hearts — as much as… Bonegobbler.

It’s true! Our poor GM (who summoned BG) didn’t hear the end of all the giggling and bad innuendo for a full five minutes.

It was a memorable night of feasting, dancing and sworn promises.

1. Great feasts!
2. Plague Quarter DDR! As our old buddy Noth put it, that’s one rockin’ “slime and crap filled dance studio.”
3. And promises of “Oooh, my bad. Won’t do that again…”

Unfortunately, it all ended as most torrid affairs do, with a violent breakup.

(I believe Bonegobbler actually exploded, if we’re being accurate.)

We thought we’d never see our favorite ghoul again. Then, earlier this month, shock of shocks! BG was spotted in the company of another guild death knight!

Was this a ploy to gain attention? A minionage of convenience? Was Bamf merely a rebound toy? The rumors flew.

Happily, as of this past weekend, all that swept under the rug. BG and our GM have decided to start seeing each other again. They claim it’s an on-again-off-again thing, because they both need some space. Still, we are glad that they have worked out their differences and can enjoy one another’s company once again. Ah, spring love.

This pally made me do such a double take whilst walking through Ironforge that I had to snap a picture. Five bucks says she’s played by a dude.

Dear Blizzard,

When you actually get around to hiring clothing/armor designers who are not horny 15-year old boys, please give me a ring.

Oh, what the heck. If you want plate metal bikinis, I can give ya plate metal bikinis as well. I’m down with the Princess-Leia-in-chains style influences. But lordy, at least show skin in a way that looks planned, not like she just plain forgot to put on a piece of clothing this morning, eh?

I realize that they’re called “legguards”, therefore you felt the need to, y’know, guard her legs, but these really look like glorified stripper boots. Which might be the idea, I concede, but in that case why the turtleneck?

So many questions about this design, so little time.

Lurv,

A.
