RTMT: Slight of hand...

Chibi Maker is so addicting...
This morning's Random Tuesday Morning Thought is brought to you by "Wait a minute. What just a red-hot minute." 

Someone's, something's, wait. What?


A whole lot of mage information just blew my mind this morning, and here is what I'm trying to synthesize: Blizzard, WoWInsider, and Ceniza, this is what you're telling me:

1. I should have been focusing on Ceniza this whole time? New talents? New powers? Mages were just being neglected for the time being…but still needed? Still wanted?
2. WoW Insider lets go of my favorite mage writer, and then writing this column…wait, what? (Favorite mage writer link) Why? Why can't Vid still be writing this? Doesn't seem right. 
3. This is a deep reminder to play characters and classes we love, and who cares if they are weakened, marginalized, and neglected? Their time will time!  Flame on, Ceniza! 

Why, why is it, every time a mage is involved I am enchanted and cheated all at the same time? Damn, mages, priests, and warlocks - oh my. The three of you made a trifecta of awesomesauce. Okay, Ceniza. I hear you. You're biding your time with the walrus men, but I won't neglect you before WoD, promise. You might turn me into a newt!

Damn, no more time to write about mages and Ceniza this morning. Must blink away...

Music to listen to while crying about mages:
Dahahka sent me this message for some Lent songs: 
Hopefully most of these will be new to you, and you can share your favourites with the world!
First up we have my favourite songs from the Bastion soundtrack: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EDagBGdMtQ0
Now, today's Band Of The Day is an outfit called The Whitlams (Gough Whitlam was a famous Prime Minister in Aus history). All these songs are from their debut album, Eternal Nightcap.
I think this first one will appeal to you, just personality-wise. You Sound Like Louis Burdett: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RaQlVvzDYiw
This is a really powerful story told over three songs..Charlie No. 1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BEr1cHVG2gcBuy Now, Pay Later (Charlie No. 2): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BEr1cHVG2gcCharlie No. 3: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=20PgADuXKvc
To round off this band are, fittingly, the first and last songs on the album.
A song that I have identified with many times over the long, lonely years...No Aphrodisiac: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rlEOOpkV3RUAnd another kind of whimsical one to finish up...Band On Every Corner: http://www.last.fm/music/The+Whitlams/_/Band+on+Every+Corner
And just because I can, I will share a great Japanese song [sic] Aruku Around (Walking Around): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vS6wzjpCvec


  1. Thanks for the music! Here's one I like, I got it from Roo's blog. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KW7uvYz9yjA

    One day I will level a Mage successfully ... one day.

    1. Tome, that song is awesome! My co-worker ran in asking if I was having a dance party - great stuff! As far as those mages go, you have a warlock or two, and I'm sure they would have words with you if you ever let that mage escape. But I must confess, they are grand fun.


Thank you for your comment!
