World of Warcraft BfA Blues

IMG_1845

I’ve learned a lesson from the last two expansions and that was to use the app to gain rep even though I’m not actually logging into BfA anymore due to boredom. I kick myself for not doing this during Legion. I didn’t achieve flying until the very end there since I dreaded the monotonous world quest rep grind.

Now I’ve been doing only rep missions for reps that I need for the Pathfinder Achievement. I expect when I log back in to have earned it. (whoop deedoo!)  I’ve finally used up my resources so I’m done with Blizzard until the next patch comes out.

 

Manga that Shine Fall 2018 – My Top 3

thecomiq

I’m loving The Comiq by Yu-Gi-Oh! creator Kazuki Takahashi. The way he drew the faces turned me off a bit at the beginning but I was won over by the great backgrounds with nice inking and of course the story.  It’s a classic who dun it?! murder mystery and I’m sucked into the story already. I only pray that VIZ media doesn’t drop it from the North American digital edition.

In real life, as well as this story, prison inmates are made to draw manga backgrounds to acclimate into society. Up-and-coming mangaka Ryota Sakamaki is hard at work on a new series, advised by his sister Mihana and taunted by the super-popular mangaka Seiya Himekawa.

Ryota’s work begins to reveal unsettling parallels to a murder that took place years earlier—and he learns Baba, the supposed murderer in the case, is drawing his backgrounds. Convinced Baba is innocent based on the drawings, Ryota sets out to prove it with the power of manga.

Dr. Stone and The Promised Neverland are still going strong with the stories hitting some suspenseful potential climaxes at the same time.  Who will die and who will survive are still in question as both series leave you hanging at chapters end.

The Promised Neverland is slated for an anime and I would bet Dr. Stone will have one eventually.

MadSeasonShow is my ASMR

I’ve noticed a lot of hype on ASMR videos on YouTube and mentioned on the local radio station. ASMR are sounds like just feel good. Like a tingling from the top of your head down your spine or just a relaxing feeling that could make you want to drift off to sleep.

YouTube’s MadSeasonShow is my ASMR. Not only does he make great World of Warcraft content videos his voice is just wonderfully dead pan.  He even jokes about the mono tone in this video.

I like his channel. He’s not pretentious, informative and seems like the dude I would want as a guildie.

 

Warcraft 3 – Arthas before and after

sidebyside

Danderchi

Give him a haircut and he could pass as Dio Brando. I love it.

Me: Oh I agree! Broody and menacing.

LesFuries

Such a tiny head. Such big shoulder pads.

Reimos_Drevon

As all shoulder pads should be.

Thagyr

Decapitating him is a challenge with those forts on his shoulders for sure.

Me: Good points everyone! What is WoW without massive shoulder armor.

Eadstompa

He looks like Sigvald from Warhammer.

Me: Totes magotes.

 

 MadFonzi

For some reason he reminds me of Griffith from berserk with that new model.

Me: meh…Griffith had that white hair poodle curl going on.

sirfannypack

Wish they discounted the game for people who already own Warcraft 3.

Me: My frugal self loves this idea!

There seems to be two camps now. 1. Oh hell ya, he’s hot! (my camp) and 2. small head, big shoulders and looks like Sephiroth.
