Stone Roses song Pearl Bastard

The song has finally found it’s way to listenable means on youtube. It’s very obvious the Stone Roses turned this from Your Time Will Come into this, then into Sugar Spun Sister. But anyways, here it is for those that think 120$ is too much for that friggin 20th anniversary edition robbery.

Friday Night Horror Corner Day of the Dead

George A Romero’s 1985 zombie trilogies last episode was more about the human interaction between survivors and less about zombies.  Three distinct groups of people dominated this movie, civilians, scientists, and soldiers.  The group was sent to an underground compound to study the zombies and create a cure for the problem.  The soldiers were sent to protect the scientists and the civlians were sent to serve the soldiers and scientists.  Towards the end of the movie you see the breakdown between people who have lost hope, people who are in the last thows of civilization.  The possibility of the underground bunker containing the last vestiges of humanity make the soldiers edgy and willing to break down civilized laws, it makes the scientists disregard scientific morality, and makes the civlians want to pack up and head for the beaches.  This movie is yet another of Romeros insights into the human condition.  The lack of communication is what eventually leads to the breakdown which inevetably gets a majority of people killed and a few escape. 

The last of the “trilogy” but not the last of the Romero films this movie leaves a bit to be desired from the first two films but should still be watched as a cult movie.  Not as succesful as the first two films but still has the distinct Romero feel to it it is a definate to be watched film.

So curl up on the couch and grab yourself a bottle of your favorite get hammered beer and have some fun watching this one.

 

OR if you feeling particularly daring watch the three romero movies than watch contagium and return of the living dead.

so untill next friday remember dont go into the basement and don’t open that door.

Onyxia Level 80 raid

Blizzard announced yesterday that they will be bringing back Onyxia as Level 80 10 and 25 man raid content as part of a 5 year anniversary. You’ll also get a in game pet “Onyxia brood whelpling”. Cool! Now, I’ve already done Ony a few times so this wont be “new” to me. But I imagine there are many new players out there who haven’t seen her before. It’s a pretty simple fight, think nightbane 1.0. They’ll be redoing the tier 2 content for the raid. The thing is I’m only aware of the helm dropping from Onyxia. The other tier items being found in Blackwing Lair and Molten Core. And 8 pieces, up from the 5 that we get now. I’m going to call this now that the new Expansion, which has to be Cataclysm will do something drastic to the world “of warcraft”. As in azeroth being re-shaped. We all know Arthas will be the next fight. And that raid will come out sometime during the Christmas Season. Raids usually last 4-6 months and I forsee the Arthas fight lasting as long as the BT length. There will also be a BETA time for the Expansion and as we saw it ran a good 4-6 months. So I forsee these mini content patches. Ones where they will be patching in the old content for a short duration so players can experience the raids before they blow up the world. That’s just my .02 🙂

Here’s what they had to say.

“She has lurked in her lair and done battle with the many brave adventurers who travelled to that familiar location over the years. Now, in honor of the World of Warcraft 5-year anniversary, the dreaded brood mother Onyxia is being revamped to make a return to the forefront of Azeroth, as part of our big plans for the upcoming 3.2.2 content patch.

This permanent update to Onyxia will convert the dungeon into 10- and 25-player modes. We will be adding new items to Onyxia’s loot table that have the same model as some of the classic loot from this dungeon, like Tier 2 helms, with stats updated to match the current level of content. There will be a special new item too: a normal drake-sized 310% speed flying mount modeled after Onyxia herself called an Onyxia Broodling. We will also be updating the encounter mechanics to be more fitting for modern raiding, but we can guarantee players will get to experience the frightening horror of deep breaths once again.

Then for a limited time, after the 5-year anniversary event officially begins in November, anybody who logs in will receive an Onyxia Brood Whelpling pet.

We’re very excited to bring this classic encounter back to provide a fun new experience for both new and veteran players. Further details will be available in the near future, and we will be setting up the Public Test Realms soon to help test out this fight along with all the new content we have planned for the patch. Keep an eye on the forums for updates!”
