First off, Illidan died tonight and I was there. Curse broken. Finally.
It was a little slow to start as we were training a new fire tank, but he picked it up quickly. This was our cleanest kill, with only one person dying and that to the crazy DoTs at the end of the fight.

Xenocide is, indeed, considerably less inexplicable if you happen to start at the beginning, rather than two thirds in. Who'da thunk it. But having the books on my MP3 player sure makes it hard to resist listening when I should be working. On CDs, there's no real opportunity.

Hellboy II was fun. The fights were never too long, they brought home the funny and the story wasn't too stupid. I don't ask for much more than that anymore. I was rather suprised at how sympathetic the villian was - that was unusual. Sure, he was ruthless and desperate, but he motive wasn't all bad, just bad for humans, is all. But then, I really liked watching the man move, (and they let us do it lots) so that may be it.

saw hellboy my self as well. did you not love the costumes? there was some great ones. I'm still not sure what i thought of the story line. it was almost like watching a few diffrent movies at once. men in black, Shrek, and some others thrown in to the mix... but i must say it was worth seeing on the big screen...

Oh, yes, the costumes were gorgeous; I kept getting distracted by them. :D And I agree with you about the storylines, too, at least as far as there being several and only one was fleshed out.

warning to readers...second half has a couple of Hellboy 2 spoilers

first Gratz on Illidan, im envious. Can I be like you when I hit 70? you is my WoW hero!

On the movie..
We all have seen it here, and what a movie. I can soo see you and some slinder handsome guy pulling off those two costumes. You have the skills to do the cloth part, and you have the smarts to cover some sort of plyable material with gold foil for the crown. I can see you making that look AWESOME! I would so do Red for a grouping like that. ive got the tall and wide down..just need to bulk up or get some fake body suit to pull it off..but I wont cut my hair that short tho...either that or the new guy..I could so do that..

I both drool and quail at the thought of making those costumes.

Red's hair isn't short - it's in a queue in the back, kind of Japanese style.
