Its been a long time since Ive posted something personally and I’m sorry, but I got two reasons for it. One of them is a reason I would call legit and the other one is not as legit. The short one first, which is also the legit one. This semester I’m taking two philosophy classes, which mean that there is a lot curriculum to read, plus Ive been busy with not one, but two mandatory assignment which I am and was supposed to write couple of pages. I handed in my first on two weeks ago, then I got another assignment (not philosophy but programing), and when I handed that one in. I had to start on my third one, which I’m working on right now. This one is due to Monday, and I’m half way through. Hoping to get done before the weekend. We’ll see.
So, now you probably wondering what my other reason for not blogging is. As you maybe know, I played World of Warcraft some years ago. And now Ive started to play again. It all started with a friend of mine introducing me to World of Warcraft the trading card game (which is great), it’s kinda like Magic The Gathering but with some other tweaks (everything is “mana”). Then I thought about how I missed WoW and wanted to try to start again. So I bought a month of subscription. I’m having a blast, but it is something hard to control how much I should play. I haven’t even had time to start playing Dead Rising 2 which I bought on Friday. Other then playing WoW, I use my time to play boardgames and a lot of Heroclix. Man, I’m starting to really dig Heroclix! I also waiting to get my Watchmen set in the mail! going to be awesome!
Guess that all I have to say for now. My original idea for this post, was to make a post with pictures of all the stuff I bought the last month and tell you all about it. Still going to take pictures of everything, but not sure how much to write about it. We’ll see. Going to do it when I get the Watchmen set. As not to bore you while you wait for the pictures, I’m going to post cool and interesting stories/images I find on the interweb. Like I did earlier today.
This movie just looks better and better!

So, I’ve started a new project! Original planned it yesterday when I came over this Flickr page. I’ve seen picture of the Danboard before, but I did never know it was a 365 days project. So that got me inspired to do my own. First I thought I should buy my own Danboard, but nah. Then I turned around (all my vinyl figures are in the shell behind me) and then I saw my Momo bear wave at me! And I just knew it, that’s the one. So guess that’s kinda how it started! I also fixed a Flickr account, so will just embed it in. Hope that won’t be much of a problem. Thought it would be easier that way. Oh, I still don’t have any name for him…
Hello everyone! I would introduce myself, but I don’t have a name at the moment. Luckily my photographer is working hard to find it. I say it, because I just replaced it. I stored it in my secret world where there live tons of Momo bears!
Been some days since I posted last time, have to blame exam and me taking two days of and chilling at my cabin. So going to post a new post every other hour today to get on track with all you’ve missed and all what I have experience the last week. So I’ll start with last Monday (a week back in time). I’ll try to stay in presence.
Today I bought Guitar Hero Band Pack! I’ve always wanted to try out the drum kit, but have thought it’s been to expensive. Then suddenly I saw a Gamestop ad where they where selling it super cheap if you traded in four of your games. So I picked Amped 3, Skate, Dead Rising and MX vs ATV out of my self (need to buy Amped 3, Skate and Dead Rising back!) and headed down. First time I was there (Saturday) they we’re all out and didn’t know when they would get some new back. So I was all mopey and didn’t thought I would get one. Then I went back on Monday since I had to pick something up for my work. I packed my games just in case and looked inside first one Gamestop, and they hadn’t got anything, then I checked a second one and they had one Band Pack left! “Woho” I thought and said. So that’s how I got my hands on a Band Pack. After that I had to carry it from the store and back home. That was very exhausting! I’ve forgot to mention that Guitar Hero Metallica was a part of the deal, so I got an extra guitar (now I have three, so going to try to sell one)!
The Metallica version is okay, with a lot of Metallica songs (duh), but not many other cool songs. They need to start getting songs I like! What about some Dream Theater Guitar Hero, or Smashing Pumpkins. Or what about region based?! Some Norwegian and Swedish Guitar Hero would be awesome! Maybe I’ll just pick up Rock Band to solve the song issue.
Thought about drums: I think it’s a lot of fun, very hard. A lot harder than guitar, but I’m getting a hang of it now. Started to play a little bit medium (I’m playing mostly Hard and a bit expert on Guitar). It feel really great to play on the drums, but it o make a lot of sounds just hitting the pads. Need to find a way to dampen that, I’ve read on the Internet that you can use linen to cover them. So maybe I’ll try that one time.
Yesterday World of Goo (co-)creator Kyle Gabler released the soundtrack to their brilliant game World of Goo. It’s the same in-game songs, so if you have played the game your going to enjoy the soundtrack. The servers went down pretty quick last night, but are now up and running. So check out 2dboy.com or download it from me.
As some of you may know, the new expansion to WoW is hitting the store tomorrow. Plenty of places is having midnight launches, but no one beat 7-Eleven about being early. Check out this video from gametrailers.
