TBC Day One

The Burning Crusade was released last night at Midnight. The first expansion pack for the MMORPG World of Warcraft. I went to EB Games last night in Century City and hung around outside in the cold to wait for the store to open to receive my pre-paid copy of the game. EB gets no link love because they told me to show up at 11pm and made me wait outside till just after midnight. Why they couldn't let us in a few minutes before to keep warm was beyond me.
However, hanging outside with the rest of the players was a great time. I'll never get to meet them again unless I go to a Blizzard Convention, which is unlikely. But we had fun talking about the over powered Alliance and Pally's. It was nice to hear Pallys in line admit that even they admit to being over powered. My favorite part of the night, after covering what to expect in TBC, gear, PvP and guild drama was guild names. Here are a few of my favorite.

STD's Are BOP
Short Buss All-Stars
You Can't See Me Behind This Tree In PvP
And Two Stealthed Rogues

Followed by a great video of regarding Guild Drama. It was recorded on TeamSpeak but the animation is really creative. I especially liked the Whelp animation.

"Hey, it's me."

Harrison Ford was the reason I became an actor. At ten years old, Han Solo, was the coolest hero I'd ever seen. I wanted to be Han. Later I would want to be, Indiana Jones and Rick Deckard. As both Harrison and I got older our tastes changed. He did films like Frantic, The Fugitive, and Witness. Heck, I even liked K-19.

All that said I was concerned that Mr. Ford was making Indy 4. With George turning down Frank Darabont's script I became reclusive and started watching the first three Indy films again and again. Afraid that, what happened to Star Wars would happen to this great series.

Until this morning when while reading TheForce.net, I found this link:

Ford's Star Wars snub

Then I remembered why he's my hero.

Good call Mr. Ford and thank you.
