January 2007


It would make my day if they pulled the camera back to reveal this was being performed entirely by mimes.

Now I will never be able to take Jean-Claude van Damme seriously again. Wait a minute…right, not a problem.

(Sorry for the lag in posting. Many exciting things happening, including a possible hosting move. Watch this space!)

So Burning Crusade went live tonight at midnight, and I’ll admit it – I was through the Portal as fast as I could get on (which took close to an hour between installing and patching!). More about the launch event and some proper screen shots later, but for the moment, here’s Dey standing on the Stair of Destiny and praying she doesn’t have to try to run by the big fiend at the bottom:

Welcome to Outland!

11 hours and counting to the launch of World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade. My 58 Night Elf Hunter is sitting mounted at Nethergarde Keep, ready to race to the Dark Portal the moment the installer finishes. (Not quite brave enough to actually camp at the portal. There are scary enough things hanging out there now…who knows what will happen when the expansion goes live?) Will post a picture of Deyna in Outland as soon as possible… 🙂

AppleTV? iPhone? Draft-n router? John Mayer? *pbfffft*

2 hours of keynote, not one shipping product, no mention of Leopard and no new/upgraded Macs. A lot of people’s Keynote Bingo cards got busted this morning. On the plus side, I’m saving a few bucks…unless, of course, the ModBook is legit. We’ll see in about 3 hours…

…and the usually gregarious rumor mill is unusually quiet. Either Apple’s security team has done their job this year, or (iPhone notwithstanding) there’s nothing massive coming. Apple’s not tipped their hand either way, so there’s nothing to do but sit by the computer and watch one of the non-webcasts. Can’t wait!

Ok, I’m probably the third-from-last person in the world to discover Bash.org, but this was too funny not to share:

It’s nature. How do you make nature against the fucking law? It grows everywhere. Serves a thousand different functions, all of them positive. To make marijuana against the law is like saying to God made a mistake. You know what I mean, it’s like God on the seventh day looked down on his creation:
“There it is, my creation, perfect and holy in all ways. Now, I can rest.”
[Mimes God looking around – spotting pot]
“Oh my me.”
“I left fucking pot everywhere.”
“I should never have smoked that joint on the third day ..shit.”
“That was the day I created possums. Haha. Still gives me a chuckle.”
“If I leave pot everywhere that’s gonna to give humans the impression they’re supposed to… ‘use’ it.”
“(sigh)Now I have to create Republicans.”
