Halloween Mix Tape 2012


For the first post, I’ve compiled a list of some of my favorite songs to listen to during the Halloween season. Some of these vid’s may be incredibly cheesy, I didn’t make them, but the songs are good. Also, caution when opening some video’s, some are NOT safe for work, they will be labeled but use caution with any of them. Without further pause, the best of my Halloween mix.

Switchblade Symphony – Witches

Aqua – Halloween

Inkubus Sukkubus – Wytches

Within Temptation – Forsaken

Avenged Sevenfold – Piece of Heaven: this is NOT SAFE FOR WORK…. and probably most religious, sane, or normal thinking people….

Rocky Horror Picture Show – Double Feature

The Exorcist – Mike Oldfield – Tubular Bells

Rob Zombie – House of a Thousand Corpses: Lyrics may not be considered safe for some work, check description on the video for lyrics if you’re not sure. Note the woman moaning*

Insane Clown Posse – House of Horrors: Lyrics may not be safe for work, Explicit

Lords of Acid – Kiss Eternal

Little Shop of Horrors – Mushnik and Son

Nightmare Before Christmas – Oogie Boogie’s Song

The Fog

Alice Cooper – Man Behind the Mask

Jace Everett – Bad Things

The Ramones – Pet Cemetary

Scissor Sisters – I Can’t Decide: the video is clips from Dexter, should be enough said

Thou Shalt Not – If I Only Were a Goth

Ushiromiya Maria (Horie Yui) – Happy Halloween Maria


Thera…….more?


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.

Download the video 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.


More MoP Live Wallpapers!!


With the release of MoP just weeks away, the blog will be focusing on goodies for the expansion until it’s release. Not long ago I released a spoiler video showing one of the places in Pandaria. Well this week I don’t have one new MoP wallpaper, I have THREE! See if you can find the locations when the expansion pack goes live.

You can get the Dreamscene application here

Install, and just right-click your WMV and choose “Set as Desktop Background”. Enjoy your new wallpapers!

Spoilers Ahead!


Mixtape #1


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….
