Warcraft: Last Week Of Legion!

Not all expansions are created equal. Each has their own issues and good parts to them. With that being stated, Legion has been one of the better expansion experiences that I have had.

Not sure if I would put it at number one but at least it was a solid experience.

I also know that I have mixed feelings going into the next expansion for a couple of reasons. I am sure some of my worries or things I have on a list that are a cause for a concern are going to work out better then what I expect. I have to give the Battle For Azeroth expansion more of a chance before I go full tilt nerd rage on it. Let’s face it – with all the drama already surrounding it up until this point has been a shit show.

I dont want to be one of those guys or gals that complain without knowing what the hell I am talking about or even before I see it and have a chance to test it out on live. Criticism is only good if it is constructive.

Even with the mix of emotions that I have, I am looking forward to Battle For Azeroth and will have mostly fond memories of Legion. I wanted to take the time for everyone at Blizzard for doing a good job up until this point and I will see the rest of you on the flip side of the expansion launch!

Shout Outs:

Weekly the podcast All Things Azeroth has a “Question of the week” that I usually participate in. This week’s question was, What content creator (Blizzard related or otherwise) would you like to give a special shout out to? My answer was quite simple and I am going to use it for my shout outs this week. So, Other then the obvious answer being the crew here on this podcast. I would like to shout out TheGameCase for having me on my first podcast a while ago, for showing me that I have the potential to do such creative things. For Draven, for also inviting me as well – for the same reasons. Frazley, Lord of the Punted for teaching me that you have to power through the mistakes you make and be a better person for it. For Ben & Jon from Azeroth Roundtable for being a very good pair and having the ability to have differing opinions and still able to have a great & entertaining conversation. For Barf, not only being the lead of the greeters in Convert To Raid, but for being one of many of my biggest supporters, and giving some of the best advice. Also, Sal – the best shaman’s ever – and one of the sweetest ladies I know. Lastly to Rho for all the fantastic work he does.

Album Review: PTX Presents: Top Pop Vol 1

PTX

Pentatonix, (abbreviated PTX) is an acappella group from Arlington, Texas, consisting of vocalists Scott Hoying, Mitch Grassi, Kirstin Maldonado, Kevin Olusola and Matt Sallee. Their new album, PTX Presents: Top Pop Vol 1, was released April 13th and they will be doing a follow up tour in the summer. It marked their first album with Sallee and without Avi Kaplan.

I know I am going to sound overly critical here, and if you like the album, I truly am sorry.  I do not want to sound like a super fan of Avi, and I am, but I do not want to disregard the other talent here. I love their voices, all of them. Including the new guy, Matt, but I am really not feeling this album.

The first two songs, Attention and Finesse, seemed to be to fast. Attention in particular I felt like the higher register / vocal ranges shined but the lower vocal hid behind a tree.

As far as the third song, it was more about the arrangement of the two songs combined here. It was not bad, I would have like more of “Are you that somebody” or even that song covered as a single itself.

Havana, Perfect, Stay, and Feel It Still were just ok. They were not bad but did not wow me like PTX usually does.

Praying, with such an emotional message, I felt like it was lost here.

I usually love PTX, but this album was a miss.

First Impression Thursday: Beta Battle For Azeroth

wowscrnshot_050218_165509-e1525366121755.jpgAloha all of my fellow Azerothian friends, Zephirah here! You’r friendly neighborhood priest.

Guess what? GUESS! I will give you a few seconds. 5, 4, 3 . . .  I cant wait anymore! I GOT INTO THE BETA! If you can not tell I am super excited, and no I have only had 1 cup of coffee so far this morning!

I started out with choosing a Mag’har Orc and swiftly went through the introductory “Battle For Lordaeron” scenario.

Honestly creating the character’s are always a fun thing to do. This was no exception.

There were not very many bugs going through the scenario or in general. There were a few though that were rather annoying. (Yes boys and girls I already reported these things!) For example, when you land to start questing for the Mag’har Orc’s in particular there is nothing available to pick up which is rather annoying and the biggest bug they have. I just mostly want to see things, everything looks good zone wise for as far as I had gotten through.

Otherwise, we mostly know all the news that is out there via various other blogs and podcast but I will post a progress update with random thoughts!

 

Book Of The Month: The Girl On The Train

The_Girl_on_the_TrainThe Girl On The Train is a psychological thriller novel by author Paula Hawkins that was released on January 13, 2015. The story is a first-person narrative told from the point of view of three women. Rachel Watson is a 32-year-old alcoholic, Anna is young stay-at-home mother, and Megan Hipwell who has a troubled past and who lives down the street.

The film rights for the novel were acquired in March 2014 by DreamWorks Pictures, that was released on September 20, 2016.

I was looking to read something to read for April and ran into a few ideas. For this month I had decided to grab the audio book via my local library’s app on my iPad. I have read a bunch of reviews that were incredibly positive. I will watch the film after I listen to the book.
