So there’s this show on TV called “24”. It’s wrapping up it’s 7th season, so if you wanted to see one of the freshest and most entertaining shows in the past decade or two, you’re too late. But I digress, as usual.

24 has a catch phrase. Y’see, the gimmick of the show is that it plays out in real time. 24 hours, and there’s this malign clock constantly ticking throughout the entire show. The clock is everywhere. It is always there, mercilessly recording the passage of time, counting down to a major character’s death more often than anything else.

Every episode, at least one character will say “we’re running out of time” or “we’re out of time” or some variant thereof. Sometimes they’ll say “you’re” or “almost”, but the phrase is basically always the same.

As a family, we began to ritualistically watch the show starting in season 2. It got to the point where we would all cheer whenever the catch phrase was spoken.

And then… we began noticing the phrase elsewhere. In fact, everywhere. It’s to the point now where it’s nearly impossible to watch anything that does not include the phrase “running out of time”.

Take, for instance, a recent experiment where we collected a random plethora of TV shows and movies that have nothing at all to do with 24.

We watched Zoolander, for instance, a highly odd comedy about mildly insane morons. The catch phrase in question was used twice.

A coincidence? I think not. (more…)

Never Give Up! Never Surrender!

Some of you ridiculously long readers may remember a crazy guy named Voxmortis. Suffice to say, he’s an extremely good friend of mine. We used to get up to all sorts of crazy crap. Until he quit the game, the bastard.

Anyway, he’s back, and playing a Death Knight of all things. In fact, we’re leveling our DK’s together because that’s what obsessed friends do.

We arrive in Terokkar, ready for some hard questing. We see that the timer for the Bone Waste towers is a mere 5 minutes.

“Hey!” says we, “If we can grab those, that gives us a damage AND experience boost!”

So off we rode into the Bone Wastes, fully prepared to flag and stand around with no fighting involved at all.

We had taken the towers in Zangarmarsh the day before, and met no resistance. We didn’t expect this to be any different.

Imagine our surprise and disappointment when we arrived at the nearest tower to Stonebreaker Hold and discovered a flagged level 80 Paladin. (more…)

Sixth of Sixth

The newest blog meme is simple. Post the sixth screenshot in your sixth folder. Gnomeaggedon tagged me, so here we go.

Cynical? Yeah, I may be a cynic, but I don’t express that in everything I do!

Forget I said anything.

Tag! You’re it!

Aurdon! Pike! Josh! Galertruby! Megan!

Bacon Bacon Bacon

There is plenty of food to be eaten in WoW. There are sausages, various types of fish, even steak from endangered species.

I’m calling it now, the Shoveltusk are an endangered species. I hate those damn things so much, I make it a point to kill as many of them as possible. And then sell their skins for profit. You think the Tuskar were a little ticked off about that Big Roy thing?

Just wait until they find out about all those Shoveltusk.

Nesingwary has got nothing on me.

(Random update: 80, and kinda freaking out. Things drop that are technically an upgrade, but they have obvious healy stuff on them like mp5. No one else wants them, so I find myself sporting healer stats. I am deeply ashamed.)

There is, strangely enough, only one type of bacon in the game. And that is the Helboar bacon.

Disturbingly enough, it’s only available as a one time quest reward. (more…)

Cheese!

My mind is a dangerous thing. The left half is regularly drunk, and the right have has a speech impediment. Thus, when they attempt to function correctly, things get lost in translation, and occasionally very strange things spring forth.

Like my sudden craving a couple nights ago for melon and ice cream while running Heroic Shattered Halls.

Or my sudden obsession with collecting all the in-game cheeses.

This newest craze, I fear, will turn into something dreadfully ugly, until I have at least one specimen of every single type of cheese the Azeroth and Outlands has to offer. So I spent about half an hour today, running around, and collected every type of cheese currently available in game.

I am missing two pieces from my collection.

Holiday Cheesewheel, which is only available at Winter’s Veil.

Spiced Onion Cheese, which is only available at Brewfest.

Sadly, I did not have the foresight to see that I would become utterly obsessed in collecting cheese, and so did not purchase these when I had the chance.

I had considered collecting alcoholic beverages instead, but I think that might reduce me to tears, what with all the Beerfest exlcusive drunks… err, drinks.

Ahh, well. Cheer and Beese do kinda sorta well go together, so maybe it bould wehoove me to collect them. That way I can drink cheese and eat beer whenever I like it to feel!

Ultimate Super Burger

There’s this cafe I always stop at when traveling to the west coast, called the “Gold Pan Cafe”.

One of the items on their menu is called the “Ultimate Super Burger”. Not kidding. No really. Ultimate. Super. Burger.

Allow me to describe it for you.

  • Freshly baked (as in that morning) kaiser bun.
  • Two quarter pound patties, each made from top of the line cuts, flavored and cooked to utter perfection. Never overcooked, never undercooked.
  • Both patties are topped with three strips of bacon.
  • Both patties have what I believe to be Monterrey Jack melted onto them. Could be cheddar.
  • They take three eggs, and cook them together into the shape of a patty.
  • Both patties are slapped together, then a mixture of melted cheese and mushrooms is piled over the whole thing. Beef patties, egg patty, bacon and all.
  • Lettuce, tomato, onions, and green onions, all ridiculously fresh. As in, you ordered the burger, then they went outside and picked the tomato that they’d need. That fresh.
  • Condiments are basically mayonnaise and some other things.

Sound good to you?

It did to me.

I ordered two of them and some onion rings on the side.
