Add A Little Color!

<-------------BEFORE /

Saying Goodbye to WoW

Contrary to popular belief my life over the last 11 months has been overrun with stresses and strains that demanded attention and I felt an escape was inevitable. Hence World Of Warcraft. I used this as an escape from the real world and have now discovered that this escape was unnessesary and foolish on some occasion as it became and obsession and started effecting my health and my life. I'm sorry to say that I will be taking a break from the game with no forseeable return in the future at this stage. If I do return it would be on a smaller time frame.

But I will miss the many friends I made online. Remember guys I still do get emails, so you can contact me there, as well as AIM and MSN accounts are both active. I didn't consider myself the best druid player but it was nice to play in a few premiere guilds during my time which included joining the ranks of Dungeon Kings, Endless, The AT/Qiraji and finally the guild I will always call home on WoW, Night Eternal.

The following people will never be forgotten
-Star (Forever and ever babe. <3)
-Gorum (take care shorty!)
-Tistal (Bestest sister award!)
-Jeril (Take care of MY Starflower mate)
-Dinosaur (Wrath mate.)
-Terenpy (thanks for the entertainment)
-Kozzus/Krystallic (you two really knew how to push my buttons!)
-Pataris (Keep the epics, I'll take the life.)

Many others I didn't mention but the list goes on. Thanks for being there guys.

When Personalised Number Plates Go Wrong.

Everyone dreams of the day when they have enough money to warrant getting a very nice Japanese made, finely tuned, sleek, shiny and posh car to show off to their mates and to drive around in. That pay comes into your account and suddenly you want to show off that shiny dollar by spending it on a soft top. But then what?

Body kit? Trolley handle?
Trust me, put down Need for Speed and keep reading.

Personalised numberplates.

This is the ultimate way to show off, by the pigs (police men you uncultured swine!) tagging you with a speeding ticket under the registration number of your choice. But choose carefully!

As I was driving home from my sister's house after flogging her and my brother-in-law at their new boardgame, I noticed to my amusement the numberplate of the soft-top in front of me. Could it have gotten any worse? Check this out.

To this bloke (ego on the sleeve, trust me its a blokes car) that would probably spell ASSASINATOR, to give him some street credability. But when I saw it all I could see was

This guy clearly likes the portrayal of having a massive prosterior, and isn't afraid to tag his car's reputation on his massive behind. Maybe his job is modelling the larger man's clothing lines, hence how he earnt his keep, hence how he came to have a car he probably can't fit into comfortably, hence how he comes to being recognised for an achievement award in my blog and even benefits a post about it.

Personalised number plate for me will be MITEY1. Mitey 1 because when Jango Fett got his Firespray Class Prison Cruiser, he named it Slave 1 (hence there would be more to come, but at this time focus on it, because it is beautiful!) It will be on my shiny repainted Mitsubishi Magna which I leart to drive in, the car now being referred to as either 'blues clues' or 'blue' or 'that pile of shit over there that oddly resembles a car'. Jango Fett would be proud.

The mediocre adventures of Starflower?

Took six weeks to learn this program, but when it really came down the details, it was more about teaching myself things than it was applying what I learnt. It was an adventure learning it and I really had heaps of fun animating a clip about World Of Warcraft.

The main character is my friend Starflower. I even make a guest appearance. I'm thinking of making more of this, or even a sequel! Sorry it only goes for 30 seconds, but please do enjoy!

What you see here should resemble a red dot in a circle. But if you click it the movie will start! : )

New shirt!

My best mate Jono (dude!) bought this shirt for me over the net the other week and it arrived yesterday. It suits my personality perfectly I've decided :)

Thats not me by the way, thats just some dude wearing the same shirt, but you kinda get the idea. I'm more buff than that anyway.

Try two: Dodging Veggies.

Alright. Stupid spellchecker wiped my entire post last time, no thanks to those who don't think I can spells. Yoos know who you is.

Warning: The following post outlines ways to dodge eating vegitables at a dinner table. For my own safety while continuing these carefully thought out plans, I advise that if you are a parent or guardian of mine that you stop reading now. This might be harmful to your health!

Ways to dodge the eating of vegitables 101.

A course instructed by Mitey.

Aim: To dodge the eating of all types of vegitables or 'healthy greens' in some hope of making it seems that they were disposed of into our mouths. Extra credit will be given on deception.

-Everyone knows siblings take most of our blame for things, so why not scrape your vegitables onto their plate. The 'look its Elmo!' Worked on a sibling of mine, allowing me to scrape peas from my plate onto his. Unfortunately if you don't have siblings, you can always invite your friends or other relatives over for dinner! (just check with your parents first!)

-If you don't have siblings, this can also sometimes work on a parent. Tried it on my Dad to reasonable success, only to later find he eats his vegitables first before most of his other food on the plate (must be to wash the taste out. hehe)

-The cracks in the table are always a good place to smuggle them, only the force to get them into that small crack can prove difficult at times and only rids you of smaller veggies.

-Serviettes. These useful pieces of dinner toilet paper are made to wipe your mouth after a meal, or spit out stuff you don't like. Need I say more?

-The tiny space under your plate can sometimes serve as a good hiding place for a short time. Just remember to be the last to leave the table if you do decide to do this - as you can then move them across the table into the place of where another person was eating. That way you dispose of them, and also incriminate someone else in the process!

-Throw 'em on the floor. Sucked in to those who need to vacuum the floor! The members of your household may discover them and be angry a few days later, but you still got dessert and kept the cockroaches/mice happy. Just remember if all else fails, you can always say you were setting a trap to victimise a mouse or cockroach straight into a trap.

-Extra credit to those who can start a food fight at your table. That way you only throw your veggies, allowing you not to miss out on the finer points of the meal.

-Eat them! (ok, it might not sound a logical way to decieve your parents, but mine wouldn't believe me if I ate a vegitable anyways, so your back to square one regardless!)

-Ignore the last point, and just pocket them for removal later (Don't leave them there! Your parents might be curious as to their apprearance in the washing.)

If you master any of these skills, or have some of your own, please leave me a comment.

God Speed!

Tonight I ate chicken with vegitables! /gasp /shock /horror!

I know Mum was impressed, and Loz might be too!
I still don't particularly like the taste of celery, but carrots help Mitey see in the dark, so I'll always eats those :P

Man its cold!

Yes, normally I don't get cold around this time of year, but resorting to a jacket that looks like I should be skiing, and a beanie means I feel the cold this year.

Hmmm.... a heater for my room might be my next purchase! :D

Someone pass the icecubes!

RE: Ripoff merchant.

In response to my post on Saturday, May 20, 2006 Lauren posted this on my comments page.

"Go ahead- rip me off! :opLOL you made me laugh with this post.So, are you going to rip me off some more, and join in the non-coke drinking, lots of fruit/vegetable eating challenge?I dare you!"

Before I rip you off again Loz, I need to say there will be no imitations of eating habits, as I quite enjoy the occasional glass, can or bottle of carbonated black stuff and am in no great hurry to over consume fruit or vegitables.

But I will bring popcorn to watch you eat vegitables!

Jason Chan Art dot com.

Check this out all, I found this American artist on Blizzard's fan art section of their website. You can see more of his work at its worth taking a good look around. He is into Starcraft, Warcraft, Diablo and many other anime. His work is pristine and his characters show a great promise of character and beauty.

I seriously recommend his work, and would love to see him working for Blizzard or the such. Jason if you read this, email me if you want a referee for your resume. =D

Scream for me.

WARNING: The following post contains spoilers for X-Men 3: The Last Stand. If you do not wish to ruin the movie for yourself, please ignore this post!

Can you say bad movie?
Can you say, disappointing ending?

Hey guys, went and saw X3 the other night, and I got to voice my overopinionated hate for a movie that should have been stacks better. First of all I am a fan of the comic series, and the television series from the early 90's. But this movie explores the ideas of a universe very much like these, except for the fact that a company has found a 'cure' for the so called mutant 'X gene'. The storyline also follows Jean Grey. If you watched X2 you know she was KIA, but Cyclops finds her, and Jean kills him - hey, and this is only 20min into the film!

You cannot kill off key characters! It would be like killing off Padme Amidala/Skywalker in Episode 3 of Star Wars before she even meets Anakin!

That would be humorous.

But overall it was a well deserved plot to a movie bursting with familiar characters. Juggernaut, Ice Man, Phoenix, Magneto, Pyro and dozens of others all make scenes into the plot, one of my favorite lines in the film is when Juggernaut is released from his prison, and Pyro inquires about his huge cement and battle torn helmet.
"Whats with the helmet"
Juggernaut looks at Pyro with considerable rage, then smirks and says:
"It keeps my face pretty"

I am glad that the dedication to the characters is still there. As always Wolverine has some good one liners, as does Iceman and even Rogue. The kind of individual personalities that makes the X-Men series all the more interesting for me as a fan.
But if ever you do a Marvel-based movie of any variety, don't do the following:

-Kill off key characters so early
-Take away the abilities of a fan favorite when according to other media's they gain more power later! (thanks guys, Rogue is ruined)
-Have an army of mutants but don't display their unique abilities enough in a combat that should quite clearly be all about mutant powers!
-Roar, where was GAMBIT!


A good movie to see is Benchwarmers. ROTFLMAO

Nice to see the guy from Nepoleon Dynamite in another movie role.
