Poll Time Again

Saturday Songs – September 29, 2012

I have to admit something.  I have a guilty pleasure.

Okay, that really is not all that surprising coming from someone who lists Evil Dead 2 as one of his all time favorite movies.  But this is a little different.  This is a musical guilty pleasure. a particular favorite that I have had since I was in high school.

I am a Debbie Gibson fan.

I have her first five albums on CD, and the first two on cassette.  I even watched the Atlantic Records Fortieth Anniversary Show on HBO because she was one of the performers.  Granted, Yes, Phil Collins and a whole host of other performers were a part of it, but her performance was one I had to watch.

I even had posters.  Heck, I even wrote a story that had her on a date with a character I created… who happened to be a superhero.  That story has long since been lost on some floppy disc somewhere, never to see the light of day again.

Anyway, here’s one of her songs from her fourth album.

Debbie Gibson’s songs and albums are available on iTunes, Amazon.com and at your local music shop.

My 5 Favorite Races To Play in World of Warcraft

"World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade&q...As noted in an earlier blog, I am an Alt-aholic, meaning that I am addicted to creating alternate characters in MMO’s.  While I played just about all classes in City of Heroes (moment of silence, please), I do tend to favor certain races and classes in World of Warcraft.

4 Things To Add To World of Warcraft

World of Warcraft

Like the rest of the World of Warcraft community, I was up at 3 am (EDT) waiting for Mist of Pandaria.  I do have to admit, it was pandamonium (cue canned laughter for the bad spelling pun).  I was lagging with the newly created Panda monk, mostly because there were 17,000 Pandas running around all at 3am.  I was having more fun with the battle pets, though I think that most of that was because there was not the concentration of people all trying that.  I’m sure that the 90 gold cost to start may have been a hinderance, too.  But, playing the Pokemon style battle pets actually gave me greater incite as to why Ash had to catch them all.

But, in playing last night (especially during the lag moments in Pandaria), I got to thinking that there are some things that World of Warcraft should consider adding to their next big addition… whenever that may be.

Quote of the Day – September 24, 2012

Christopher Eccleston as the Ninth Doctor

Do you wanna come with me? ‘Cause if you do then I should warn you, you’re gonna see all sorts of things. Ghosts from the past; Aliens from the future; the day the Earth died in a ball of flame; It won’t be quiet, it won’t be safe, and it won’t be calm. But I’ll tell you what it will be: the trip of a lifetime.

Tumblr on Notice

I’ve put Tumblr on probation after I noticed a couple of junk mail ads on my Facebook timeline supposedly coming from my Tumblr account.  I have taken security measures, but if it happens again, I will be shutting down my Tumblr account.

G.I. Joe Invades The Workplace

No, this is not the plot of the next G.I. Joe movie (coming soon… maybe… I don’t know anymore).  I thought it might be interesting to imagine what a G.I. Joe line (the real 12 inch Joes, not the little ones, and certainly not those goofy Sigma Six Joes) based on my place of work would be like.

For the record, I work at a local television station.  Pondering this, I actually realized that there is quite some potential here for a toy line.
