Zephirah’s Adventure: Easily Distracted By Dragons?

dragon.pngFor my readers that have been reading for a while, thank you. For those of you that are new here, welcome! I am going to make a completely obvious statement.

I am a huge nerd. I wave that flag proudly.

I even have a coffee cup that says “Nerds Rule” on it.

To answer the obvious title to this post. Am I easily distracted by dragons? Yes, I am. Obviously. This is not one of those moments or post where you should be hearing Talisen gently expressing to the fans that things are “a shit show, obviously!”

Dragon, the word itself, derives from the Latin language.  Draconem (nominative draco) meaning “huge serpent”; however,  it does not imply that there is any sort of mythological connotation’s to the word.  Also, the word comes from the ancient Greek word “draconta,” meaning “to watch,” suggesting that the beast guards valuables.

There is a long rich history of dragons and they were thought of as being the exotic animal that sometimes protective of the tower or princess. At other times vicious and dangerous creatures. Honestly, there is so much history that it is hard to sum up in a few short paragraph’s for a blog post and it is hard to figure out when or where the origin’s of the dragon started from. I would like to go into detail however, In this case the Wikipedia page for dragons does a great job of going into detail. It is a great and fantastic read. (Click here for the article!)

Another great recourse is from the American Museum of Natural History. They go into great detail and have sections that you can click through for some great information. (Link!)

I think I blabbered enough about dragons for the day. At least enough for a blog post anyhow! I will leave you with one of my favorite song’s by Imagine Dragons. Enjoy!

You’r WoW Soundtrack, Part 10: Rob Zombie!

Rob_Zombie_Living_Dead_Girl.jpgGreetings & salutations!

If you just so happen to live under a rock, do not have access to the internet, or a basic calendar, not only would you not be reading this but you would also not know that this Friday is the 13th. I decided to give this weeks blog post’s a theme.

If you have not figured it out by now the theme is Zombie’s. The theme is inspired by my D&D group that is currently running, Secrets Of Talonguard. If you are interested in listening to our campaign here is an iTunes link for you! (Click here!)

“Hellbilly Deluxe: 13 Tales of Cadaverous Cavorting Inside the Spookshow International” is the solo debut album by Rob Zombie on August 25, 1998. The album serves as his first release outside of the band White Zombie, with whom he released two multi-platinum studio albums. The song “Living Dead Girl” is the second single from the album and I absolutely love it.  The music video for the single derives its imagery from Robert Wiene’s 1920 silent film, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, with Zombie in the role of The Doctor.

 

It is wild to think that I have been a fan for this long but I have absolutely enjoyed the musical adventure. Thank you for all of the hard work and music Mr. Zombie. Really!
