No buy week! No shiny offerings from the internets to tempt you with. Instead, I attempted to focus my efforts into prepping for the Con-extravaganza invading San Diego in 2 weeks or so. Dudes, I’m semi-official too! I totally have a biz’nass card to hand out!
I was also feeling a little under the weather, but next week I can assure you that I’ll have a little somethin-somethin’ to tempt you with. Hide your wallet Tomie!
I do have some gifts from some folks that I know in real life that will both tickle your eye sockets and tingle your tastebuds.
My amazingly talented French friend, Cecile offers up her Portraits from Pictures. Basically, got a photo? Want it to look awesome? Send it her way and she can work her magic with pastels and charcoals fancy them up into an original work of art. I’ve seen a few of these with my own eyes at our Game Nights and they are breath taking and I’m not just saying that because she’s one of my peeps, yo.
If you’re into food – and chances are if you’re a walking, breathing human being you are, my girl Jackie from The Seaside Baker hooks it up with her wonderful and easy to follow recipes. Matter of fact, check out her CrockPot Cheesecake recipe. Whip a few of those suckers up, throw on some fresh, festive berries and BAMBAMBAM, you’ve your Fourth of July dessert covered.
Other noteworthy interwebs gems:
Discopriest brings the funk with her Moving wallpapers, Lizzy throws down her Unrelated Opinions about life and gameplay leading up to Mists of Pandaria and Ava from Imageheavy evokes all sortsa nostalgia with a Friday Favourite Post highlighting the Isle of Quel’Danas.
Also, don’t forget Sevenly’s cause of the week benefits Feed My Starving Children and for each shirt you purchase a child in Thailand can be fed for an entire month. As always, the new cause begins Monday at 10am PST. Do good.
And my Sevenly schwag has arrived! Loved the packaging, stickers and info sheet, so I included that in my little photo montage :3 Last week $43,218 was donated to National Autism Association to provide kits for parents of autistic children. Last I read it was a record breaking week. Nothing confirmed yet, but totally rockin’ nonetheless!
This week’s cause benefits 1Love and provides abandoned babies and toddlers in Jamaica with food and care.
As always, do good and all schwag purchased with my own skrilla. Don’t even start no drama!
“Every two years, the Spirits of Competition grow especially fervent, and draw close to the mortal realm. During such times, members of both the Alliance and Horde can honor the spirits and earn Competitor’s Tabards by seeking to defeat one another in the battlegrounds. For victory in competition, they can also earn the spirits’ favor in the form of a prized gold medal – and the special pet it summons.”
Despite the tooltip saying that the event would occur every two years, the last time this event happened was in 2008 with the Beijing Olympics. I’d been playing Warcraft very actively at this point for about 6 to 8 months, if I remember correctly. The game was a lot different pre-BC and really didn’t hold my attention all too much because of a lot of walking, wand specs and the overwhelming urge to explore every area of the map. So needless to say, PvP wasn’t really my thing at the time and that’s what this achievement involved.
A few guildies received the in-game pet and tabard and I remember being green with envy, wishing that I was one of the “cool kids.” Well, four years later the summer Olympics are upon us, this year in London. The Fay-family is waiting with baited breath to see what offering Blizzard will bestow upon us. Will we get another shot at an Olympic themed tabard and pet? Or will we be subjected to another disappointing tabard with a duration?
I’ve got my Troll fingers crossed, mon.
All three of them.
Got pics of your tabard and pet? Show em off in the comments!
This week on FayTV(TM) I walk you through a new project I’ve been working on in Creative Mode, Faytown. Most of the projects are unfinished in the video, but you get a good idea of everything.
Also, check out The Joe Show! This week Joe and I discussed on a livestream Men in Black 3, Avengers (again), the American Idol Finale and America’s Got Talent.
How appropriate after my Epic Movie Day.
I re-rolled another priest on my home server of Korgath to have another Enchanter come MoP and instead of questing the day away I’ve been doing low level PvP. This latest batch of lowbies concentrated more on killing the other team rather than capping the flags. Flag 1. Ran it in with a Rogue friend. Flag 2. Ran it alone. Flag 3 was picked up by a Hunter and the ring leader of “LOL LET’S KILL THE OTHER TEAM.” He also got mad when I stopped healing everyone to get flags 1 and 2. Come flag 3, he’d grabbed it and started farming kills demanding that I heal him. I did it for a bit until I ran a little low on mana and he refused to LoS for a bit to let me drink.
Luckily the other team was more than likely raging mad and I swooped the flag up and ran it in to whispers of teammates asking if they could cap it or asking me to wait to cap so they can farm more kills. Pshha, screw that. I’ve healed you and capped the first two flags? This cheevo is mine!
Running as fast as they can Iron man lives again!
So I decided to Podcast this blog, mostly to see if I could do it. Also, better said than typed! Enjoy!
Another continuity issue I had that I didn’t mention in the podcast was Rhodie being recast in the Iron Man 2. Um.. Terrance Howard to Don Cheadle? THE EFF?! Not that Cheadle didn’t do a great job in Iron Man II, but dayum!
