Moviewatch: The Final Countdown… Kazookeylele!

Weirder than a summer snowfall.

Weirder than a summer snowfall.

There are some very creative people in this world.

People that are creative tend to take things, and create new things out of them.  Someone took peanut butter and chocolate, combined them, and made Reeses.  Someone else took hammers, attached them to strings, and engineered a piano.

This guy seems to to have made a most horrible mess, however, and an entertaining one at that!

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you The Final Countdown… on the KazooKeyLele(Kazoo+Keyboard+Ukelele)!

Kazookeylele – The Final Countdown

Moviewatch: Damien Walters, Ninja Extraordinaire

Not quite as pictured...

Not quite as pictured...

Ninjas were thieves, assassins, and probably some of the most athletic people to have ever existed.

Here’s the issue: some of the things they were able to do were mythological at best.  That’s what I thought, anyway, until I was shown this movie of your modern ninja.

A certain Mr. Damien Walters.

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you…

Damien Walters Showreel 2009!

Musicwatch: Love Theme, Guns of Patriots

One word: Gorgeous

One word: Gorgeous

This is a special edition of Moviewatch: this week, we bring you music instead of a movie.

Why?

Art is, in my humble opinion, the closest thing to magic on this planet.  It’s the only thing that requires only an imagination to understand and to feel on a level that influences minds, and changes the way you think.  A painting can inspire you.  A book can lighten your mood.  A song can keep you going despite your limits.

Music is, in my opinion, also the most influential and powerful of the arts.  Where literature can make you cry and laugh, and visual arts can make you do the same, music does it differently.  Because of how ambiguous music is, and because of the lack of language barriers in most music, it can affect everyone.  In addition, it relies on the emotions and experiences of the listener: it sounds sad because it reminds you of something sad in your life.  It relies on you, not as much on the text.

The love theme from Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of Patriots is one of the most beautiful things I have heard.  It’s in a language I don’t understand and I still feel the sadness and agony of loss this person is singing of.

It made me cry, and I’m not afraid to admit it.

Ladies and gents, I present to you this special moviewatch…

Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots – Love Theme!

Moviewatch: Happy Up Here

Fear Incarnate.

Fear Incarnate.

Have you ever wondered what happens behind the scenes?

By behind the scenes, I obviously mean in space.  Where are the aliens in Azeroth? I see nothing of the sort.

The dranei come close, though.

But what would happen if you saw real aliens? Like, the aliens in here.

Would the Alliance and the Horde finally put aside their weapons and come together to defeat these new invaders? Would the aliens simply drop off some flowers? Who knows.

Either way, those aliens are really…

Happy up Here!

Moviewatch: Falcon Punched Before Eating

Properly executed gank.

Properly executed gank.

I made a post before on how to survive on a PvP server.

The answer to your survival was a simple one: gank others before they can gank you.  This is the truth, and it always will be: if you are a carebear on a PvP server, 9/10 times that person won’t be a carebear back.

The only way to gank properly is to gank others when they are at their worst.  And when is the worst time for anything to happen? Obviously, when you’re eating.

This very capable PvPer shows us how it’s done: when you’re about to eat.

I present to you this SNL sketch with a twist…

Punching Before Eating!

Moviewatch: Flirting Garbage Men

Don't "mess" with these guys...

Don't "mess" with these guys...

When you walk down the street.

On Garbage day.

Look to your left.

… are there garbage men?

Watch out for the garbage men, for the smell doesn’t even affect their sinister abilities… to woo any person they so desire to woo.

Do you want to blush at a man who handles your detritus?

I think not.  I think not.  Not unless they have a shower first, but even then.

I.
Should.
Hope.
Not.

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the dangers…

… of Flirting Garbage Men.

Don’t worry, Mrs. Klin already knows.  She’ll be fine.

You Better Believe It

My Ego is growing to epic size.

I have been awarded not one, not two, but three seperate “Honest Scrap” Awards from three different people: Faulsey from Master’s Call, Cait from One Among Many, and Oriniwen from Artisan Level!

/bow

You better believe it!

Now, what’s this award about? Well, let’s take a look at the plaque.

/polish

“This award is bestowed upon a fellow blogger whose blog content or design is, in the giver’s opinion, brilliant.”

/Ego Growth

Well then.  I think I rightly deserved at least 4, am I right? Here, have some fanfare!

…Colemand, what’s wrong? Hey! Stop poking me! What in blazes is wrong? What do you mean there are “instructions”? No one mentioned this to me! Curses!

What type of instructions? I really want my awards now.  Okay, let’s read them aloud.

  1. When accepting this auspicious award, you must write a post bragging about it, including the name of the misguided soul who thinks you deserve such acclaim, and link back to the said person so everyone knows she/he is real.
  2. Choose a minimum of seven (7) blogs that you find brilliant in content or design. Or improvise by including bloggers who have no idea who you are because you don’t have seven friends. Show the seven random victims’ names and links and leave a harassing comment informing them that they were prized with Honest Weblog. Well, there’s no prize, but they can keep the nifty icon.
  3. List at least ten (10) honest things about yourself. Then pass it on!

Damn straight I’m bragging! I deserve at east 5 of these things! I am fabulous, am I not?

/Ego swell

… This must be a joke in poor taste.  Things about real life? 10 of them? I should get at least 7 awards for this.

/grumble

1.  I am a music student somewhere in southern Ontario.  For all you non-Canadians, that’s in Canada.  In case you’re curious, I play a Euphonium.  That instrument, I recently found out, is a soloing instrument.  That was fun when I found out.

2.  I really, really like ketchup.  I won’t put it on dessert, but anyplace you can think of putting tomato sauce, I can put ketchup there.  Among this list is fish, pasta of almost any kind, and steaks.

3.  My favourite colour is a dark, rich green.  It’s such a soothing colour… which is necessary for days when things go “badly”.

4.  I have an amazing girlfriend, Mrs. Klin.  She’s super in every way, even if she does make less sense and talk faster than Lorelai Gilmore.  P.S: Huney, I love that about you as well, like a whole lot, just so you know.  <3

5.  I am about 6 feet tall.  Being tall is great, as it allows me to see over people’s heads.  I can’t imagine what it must be like to be small… all I have to say is this: armpit.  *shiver*

6.  I have the opposite of musical A.D.D.  I can listen to a song I like for well over  6 hours straight.  Phoenix Wright Cornered Theme? You betcha.  Les Jours Tristes? You better believe it.  My roomate doesn’t though.  He really doesn’t want to.

7.  I have hardly watched T.V in well over 5-6 years.  My favourite show ever was Stargate SG-1, and I can remember my favourite episode was the time warp episode.  Here’s why.

8.  My memory is terrible for some things, and amazing for others.  If someone has a cure for my selective Alzheimer’s, I’d love to hear it.

9.  I hate alcohol.  I can’t stand it, it tastes terrible.  The only time I like alcohol is one of two things: 1 glass of wine with my supper once in awhile, or rum in my rum cake.

10.  I tend to be overdramatic from time to time, and make a mountain out of a molehill.  Maybe it’s my now-stumped imagination trying to resurface? Possibly.

Well, there ya have it.  10 things about me from real life, and nothing incriminating.  You just lost 10 seconds of your life you’re never getting back.  Happy?

Now I am supposed to give this award to a minimum of 7 other deserving people? Well, I guess I am the best judge of that, seeing as I got 3.  I am so full of trophies, I can give one to each of my teamates too!

1.  Faulsey, I know you gave me one, but you are indeed a good friend and a blogger I respect a lot.  You’re a great guy, and I never really minded your big blue goatness.  Have another award! *Ktonk*

2.  Big Red Kitty.  You are a blogger I have read for as long as I’ve been playing a hunter seriously in any way.  Your blog is of the highest quality, and always entertaining.  Have an award! *Kthoonk*

3.  Nance, m’boy, Alterac Volley has quality in spades.  It’s informative, and it’s clean, simple, and easy to understand.  I also think you deserve extra credit for being the brainchild behind WoWHeadlines.  Awarded! *Kthunk*

4.  Drotora, your blog may be darkly coloured, but it’s a bright light in the hunter blogging community.  Your posts are always interesting, filled with information I always find useful.  Awardedededed! *Kachoonk*

5.  Samuel Tempus.  You may be a gnome, and a rogue no less, but your blog is a very entertaining read, and your roguely shenanigans almost make me want to really level my rogue.  Think Fast! *swish* Damn evasion!

6.  John “Big Bear Butt” Patricelli.  You are a great guy from what I’ve read, and even though I don’t comment regularly enough at all, I respect your blogging prowess a great deal.  Shapeshift out of this! *Kawhaka*

7.  Sarai.  Your alt-o-holicism knows almost no bounds, and yet you proceed to write interesting and compelling stories about almost every single one.  That is award worthy! HA! *Kachunkawhakawok*

8.  Rilgon, you are a stubborn goat.  Seriously.  And I like that about you.  You don’t back down from a challenge, and you always, always practice what you preach: “It’s our effort that determines who we are.”  Well said.  Not so well caught.  *Kchonk*

9.  Pike.  What can I say that hasn’t been said? You’re almost as well known as BRK, your wisdom and teaching have garnered the respect of thousands, and your avatars are adorable.  You know what else is adorable? You guessed it.  You certainly couldn’t catch it though.  AWARD TRAP! *Kasproing*

There you have it! I have done everything! I have all the awards! All mine! Gwahahahahaha!

Hey! Colemand, what are you and Cluro doing? Hey! HEY! Stop that! Those are my… HEY! NO! DON’T TAKE MY TROPHIES! NO! NOOOOOOOOOOOO!

YOU CAN’T DO THIS TO MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEeeeeeeeeeee…. !

*Crash*

We now return you to your ego-deflated blogroll.
