Week 4/29 – Recap

I thought I would share with you some of the things that happened this past week, which you may or may not care about.  Maybe I will make this a regular thing, who knows. Depends on if there was a lot that went on during the week I guess. Oh well, here it goes…

World of Warcraft:

It is Children’s Week in WoW. Go take your pet for the day out and around Azeroth and Outland, and turn them in for a cool pet! I contemplated on keeping Jaina’s Autograph for myself, and keeping this human child as my pet until he expires. I got Speedy the Turtle instead. I also got Eggbert from the Outland one.

Hmmm… Jaina’s Autograph and Human slave or Speedy the Turtle?

I am now 0 – 20 for Baron’s Mount, and decided to start on my Wintersaber Trainer’s Rep again when I get sick of farming Stratholme. Currently half way to Honored with them.

[Pattern: Sunfire Robe] dropped and I wished I was a tailor. The pattern was won by a Shadow Priest. The Mages and Warlocks which were tailors all cried in unison.

[Design: Loop of Forged Power] also dropped, but the crafted ring is Bind on Equip, so I got myself [Sunmote] x 5 from the guild, and I am now waiting for one more [Primal Might] transmute before I can get this baby crafted.

We decided on a new strategy on Eredar Twins. The strategy overall is much simpler than the last, but relys on everyone to be on their “A” game. One person doesn’t move in time will trigger an instant wipe. Got one twin down to 60% with only 21 people in the Raid during practice runs. We’ll see how this goes with a full raid.

The Epic Gem Vendor on my server is currently at 61%. It is going really, really slow. Come on everyone, do your dailies! I know I know, even I get lazy sometimes and not do them either.

BRK’s Running of da Bulls was a huge success. 373 level one Taurens running around Azeroth starting trouble.

Speaking of Tauren, we got a Tauren Mage in the raid one night. Doesn’t he look cool?



The first of four movies to be released, Evangelion: 1.0 You are [Not] Alone, was released on DVD on April 29th, and became the best-selling DVD in Japan in 2008 so far. If you are looking for an english Dub of this movie, I highly recommend [Anonymous].

Iron Man was released in theatres this weekend. I watched it, and enjoyed the movie a lot. For those of you who haven’t seen it yet, go watch it! And stay til the end, there is more after the credits. If you saw it already and left before the credits finished, now you have another reason to go watch the movie again.

Video Games:

Grand Theft Auto 4 has sold a record setting ~2.5 million copies in the United States on opening day. I am one of the buyers and am currently enjoying the game. First thing I did was run over a few pedestrians, and went straight to the strip club, and I know about 90% of you out there who got the game did the same. My gamertag is Trunks1022 if any of you own this game on the Xbox360 and want to do some multiplayer mayhem.

Finally got to Disc 4 on Lost Odyssey. It is a really great RPG for the Xbox360. You should really give it a shot if you enjoy any role-playing game.

In Real Life:

The Sixers lost to the Pistons in Game 6 of the playoffs, losing the series 4-2. Nobody expected them to make the playoffs let alone take two games from the Pistons. Good job guys.

The Flyers beat the Canadiens in Game 5 of the playoffs, winning the series 4-1. They will now face off with the Penguins in the Eastern Conference Finals. A little Pennsylvania rivalry going on here.

The Phillies are now in first place in the NL east. Chase Utley and Pat Burrell are still on fire.

My sister is graduating from Seton Hall next week. Congrats to her! My cousin and trusted sidekick is also graduating from Rowan University next week. Grats to him too!

Happy Cinco de Mayo! Don’t forget, Mother’s Day is just around the corner!
