Jimmy Fallon’s Video: We Are the World of Warcraft

If you hadn’t seen this yet, you’re welcome. It premiered last night on Jimmy Fallon and is probably one of the deepest songs I’ve ever heard… about gaming. Brought a little tear to the eye of my Belf Warlock.

I love that I recognize so many folks in that video from the WoW community and the Geekery community at large. Felicia Day, Chris Hardwick, Chloe Dykstra, and a few folks from the Frogpants forums as well. Y’all make my life.

FOR THE HORDE!

If I’m not careful, this is quickly going to turn into a nothing-but-youtube-videos-and-music blog, but y’all are okay with that right? RIGHT?

(I promise real posts are coming soon – they’re in the works.)

Musical!Inspiration!

I’m absolutely in love with the band Walk off the Earth and this song, Red Hands, it just PULLS at me in a way most songs don’t. I absolutely love it.

I realize that I got red hands, I wanna change this / Don’t ask me why I choose to lie, I stay blind, oh / It’s clear to me that you are human too, your accusations are burning through

The other song that I only just learned about last night is by a band called Alpha Rev who just played Blues on the Green here in Austin and they’ve quickly become one of my favorite bands. And this song, Sing Loud, has been on repeat all morning. So good.

Sing loud from the roof tops / Come dance on the rivers edge / Carry me over mountains to the end of love / Close the gates to the city / Hear the drums on the hillside / Carry me over mountains to the end of love

That’s it. That’s all I wanted to blog about today. Be good. Do good. Listen to good music.

The Girl Who Silenced the World

Sixteen years ago at the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (Earth Summit) in Rio de Janeiro, Severn Cullis-Suzuki was twelve years old. The founder of the Environmental Children’s Organization (ECO), she was there to speak to all the adults and tell them exactly what was on her mind.

She is now thirty years old, a published author, a celebrated environmental activist, and her words ring true to this very day. We still have a lot to learn.

(Many thanks to BitRebels for the introducing me to this video.)

Muppets Do Queen: Bohemian Style

Because if you know me, you’ll know I love all things Jim Henson. And Queen. And that’s really all you need to know to continue with this post..

Have to finish up some comics. I’ll do that this week. Ash and I and the pups are driving to Tennessee tonight (and the better part of tomorrow I suspect). It’s a 16 hour straight shot, let’s see if we can do it. Have a great Thanksgiving to all those who celebrate it (and have a great weekend to everyone else).

Geekery at its Best (and Hottest)!

I’m one of those rare species referred to as a “Girl Gamer” (though, seriously, I honestly don’t think we’re so rare – I know A LOT of girl gamers and to think that we’re a minority is kind of insulting). My drug game of choice? World of Warcraft. Both Ash and I have been out of commission for the past year I think for lack of funds, but in the coming weeks we’ll be starting up our characters again (the sole reason of my getting an office job is to pay for my addictions, you see). I hesitate to give our out names and server because it is more likely we’ll be switching soon and starting anew since it’s been so long (though I’m not sure I want to give up my Glenwyn Belf quite yet). In any case, I’ll keep you informed (because you care).

The other reason for this post. This:

Because there’s always that slim chance that someone has not seen it, I thought I’d post it (again? I think? I’m pretty sure I already posted this when it first came out but I can’t find the original entry).

Come on. Felicia Day? In character? Hot. (Also, be sure to check out The Guild. Funny stuff.)

Little Kit-kitty…

Happiness. Probably the number one most watched video on my YouTube Favorites.

How can you not love it?

Dan posted this first, but I thought it was definitely worth passing it on.

Scary Mary Poppins Video

Amused. And slightly worried I’ll have nightmares.
