No secret, I LOVE WoW and it’s community, even trade chat on occasion… But my respect for those who create Wow Machinima, and create and sing parodies and original music, is immense. This post is dedicated to those few, I only wish I had more to post to this collection.
Silver Letomi, Wick – Hallow’s End (is Calling)
PvP Siennah, Ember Isolte, H.O.Y.T, CryKoda – The Morning After
Craig the Patient, Silver Letomi – Hallow’s End
Sharm – Vampire’s Lament
Wow Extraviganza – This is Halloween
Silver Letomi, Tyrannothefirst – Hallow’s Dream
Sharm, Dudeadin – Slenderman
And for some non-music, here’s some more WoW entries….
Nixxiom – A Silverlined Halloween
Steveomico12 – WoW Horror Movie

Gigi – Ravenholdt Labyrinth (Interactive Story)
Ok, so the Theramore events been ongoing now for just under a week. I’m afraid I have to share the opinion of so many others that have gone before me this week. What were they thinking???
If you have ready the book “Tides of War” (a book that I enjoyed for the most part, minus a bit of niggling about Go’el’s part), then you probably know just how epic the happenings at Theramore were. Blizzard let us down in the implementing.
If you haven’t read the books, good luck trying to work out wtf just happened.
If you’re alliance, well, I read about the story line you guys got. I’m glad I don’t have a high enough item level to play that side.
And for everyone expecting a world event………. well…….
Don’t get me wrong, I will still be playing wow even though I’m disappointed. I look forward to playing dual panda’s in just a little over a day. I actually went out laptop shopping yesterday to make it easier to level it through my Refer a Friend ( I ❤ my Obsidian Nightwing). I plan on making the panda monk my new main, tank. Side note: the laptop was a decision I came to a long time ago for non-wow reasons, so haters can stop hating now.
But lets get down to the reasons you guys are here, the goodies! As I mentioned last week the blog will be on vacation for the next couple weeks. Fear not I will return. (Well, maybe you should fear since the returning theme is Hallows End for October!)
First up is a new Live Wallpaper. Showcasing the town in all it’s, er, pre-bombing splendor! You can get Dreamscene to run this on your desktop here.
Also as promised, here is the newest track from Thegreyfoo
If you are interested in a bit of leveling music while you travel through the Mists, you should check out Fire Mage Radio. Special thanks to Mority for hosting the site until Krasus can bring it back to us full time. Look for it to be available about Tuesday midnight Aussie time (that’s about Monday afternoon for us Yanks). I’ll have a full post on these guys in the future. The best in WoW Parody.
I wanted to compile a list of songs that I love to listen to while gaming. Since the rules of the mix tape say it should be no longer than 60 minutes (the standard size of the old cassette tapes) I agonized over what I was going to include. While none of these songs are related to WoW in any way (I will post a mix tape for that in the future, promise), they do relate to a rhythm while I play. I love to find new music out there I’ve never heard, or long forgot about, what are your essential gaming songs?
And now for the music!
Firefox users: I am REALLY sorry guys. If you haven’t yet discovered, Mozilla is no longer standing behind their browser, preferring to fall back on being a non-profit organization. What this means is that most flash content is not working properly, or intermittent at best. If you can’t see the videos, I included links to open them in new tabs, or just reload the site in another browser and it should be fine….
Unfortunately Tinie Tempah has made it so his video is only viewable on youtube, but the link will open a tab for you.

This weeks post is dedicated to the beautiful Synthetic Siren, Sharm. The offering is a song that I have loved since it’s original incarnation sung by The Who, Behind Blue Eyes. Sharm sings the song beautifully and has given us a spin on the “How lonely it is to be powerful” take on the original. The parody is from the game World of Warcraft, and focus’s on the story of the knight Morgan Ladimore. Morgan was a knight who returned home after the war to find his wife and children buried, and in his grief struck out and killed the cemetery attendants who tried to restrain him. In death he roams the cemetery, killing all who venture near. The full story can be found here
