Thank you for the fine art & writing ( Just finished reading almost all of your stories, just the last one left for me !), it's nice to see someone trying to keep Neltharion's legacy going on after Blizzard just shrugged him off. Here's to more Nel!

Um, he has a name

Journal Entry: Sun Dec 21, 2014, 3:44 PM


Something I've noticed and I've noticed it with my own artwork as well.  

That someone would take a picture of a dragon that already has a name and reputation attached to it and call it something else...give it another name and some other origin.

I've noticed this about Deathwing particular...

 photo Deathwing_the_Destroyer_TCG_zps3e474a1f.jpg

Hell i've even noticed it when people take the images from my Deviant Art of Neltharion and call him something else...

Neltharion the Worldmender by Ghostwalker2061

Might as well be blunt here...

Okay, I realize that not everyone can draw a dragon.  Or even make a drawing of a dragon that looks decent.

But when you take an image of a dragon that pretty much already has a name and reputation known by many people, and then you call it something else...a few of those people who know who the dragon really is...is going to step forth and correct you on it.

Maybe it would be a good idea not to take a familiar dragon and call it something else from one of your "fanfictions" or whatever.  

Be like taking the image of Smaug...

Step Into the Light by Ghostwalker2061

And calling him Charlie with a whole new backstory that isn't attached to the already established one written by a very good and well-known writer.

But I see this more often with say Neltharion.  Why?  Because I realize not everyone plays World of Warcraft.  Hell I've seen a few times where someone will like feature one of my images of Nel let's say...the ones attached to the My Little Ponies thing that I sometimes do...and pretty much either saying: "Here is Twilight Sparkle with some giant dragon..." or "Is that supposed to be grown Spike or something?  Isn't Spike purple and not black?"

It kinda saddens me though...

Especially when I write in the description the name of said dragon.  Which is obviously not Spike.

So...I guess I just don't get it, you know.  Mostly because I don't yank someone's artwork of a dragon, famous or not, and claim it as looking like some dragon I made up...when said dragon already has a rather deep backstory on its own.

Hell, I had one idiot call Neltharion "Bahamut" once because he didn't know who Neltharion is...

Um, guys...

So No One Can See the Tears by Ghostwalker2061

That's Bahamut.  Okay?

So, please, guys...next time you wanna yank a well known dragon...even if you don't know who that dragon is...try to do some research on the dragon.  You might find something interesting on that dragon.  It's actual backstory, its history, what kind of character it is.

My Thoughts on Tauriel

Journal Entry: Fri Dec 19, 2014, 9:20 PM


I know a lot of people don't like her.  

She's not in the books. They hate the shipping going on between her and Kili.

And yeah, when I saw the final movie I was like: LADY YOU ONLY KNEW HIM FOR ABOUT A DAY!

I hated that she was there to be a love interest.

But I do like the idea of having her there.  Mostly because the damned book was just a sausage fest.

So much so that the Rankin-Bass animated film, to keep with the book, never even shown a single woman in all its scenes.  Look at the scene in Laketown.  Where's the women?  Not a single XX chromosome holder in that damned town!  There weren't any female elves either in Rivendell or the Woodland Kingdom.

So yes, I'm happy she was in the film because finally we had a woman on screen.

Hell I was happy to see women in Laketown, since in the animated movie, there weren't any.

Damn.

I hated that she was there as a love interest for Legolas and Kili to fight over.  I really did.

Hell I wouldn't have mind it if she and Legolas were together because they would have had the time to develop such relationship.  Kili and Tauriel did not.

But to piss everyone off, in this stupid fanfic of mine, it's Smaug who gets to bag the woman.  Why?  Because Legolas' father said no to him and Tauriel being together.  Because Legolas is a prince and she's just a commoner.

So why not her and Smaug?  At least they had over 200 years in the story to develop such a relationship.

But whatever.  

I'm glad Tauriel is in the movie, I hate the fact that a woman has to be there just to fall in love with one of the leads.  

Yes, that includes what I'm doing there.  It's just that I do it as a cheap F-U to what's going on with the actual pairing.

And yes, fangirls, Kili died.  Just like I said.

The Hobbit Animated Clip

Journal Entry: Thu Dec 18, 2014, 3:28 PM


You know, I have thought about actually doing a review of the 1977 animated film by Rankin-Bass.  Which is superior to that OTHER animated Hobbit Film from 1966.

But, here is the problem, I have the DVD of the Hobbit, and not its original VHS.  And this is why that's a problem.  The audio on the DVD has been butchered.  As in spliced and cut up.  Sliced to bits.  Most of the audio sound effects aren't even in the DVD.

So anyone who has never seen the animated Hobbit prior to the DVD release are missing a great deal of stuff.

Well, I do have a treat for all of you.  Consider this a Hanukkah from me to all of you.

It took me like almost a decade, but I managed to piece together the original VHS Hi-Fi audio with the clean cut DVD's HD look.

And I posted it on my Drive account.

Conversation with Smaug Original Audio


They shouldn't get that pissed at me for this.

This is the original Hi-Fi audio in with the DVD of the animated Hobbit, produced by Rankin-Bass and animated by Studio Ghibli.  Yes, THAT Studio Ghibli.

And it shows the unique design of Smaug for the animated film...the one that I do prefer to use when I draw him.  No offense to those who like PJ's version of Smaug...I just like this one a bit better.  

Unfortunately, I can't give a proper review of the animated film because the DVD's audio bugs the shit outta me.  But at least you can actually enjoy the original audio, which includes a lot of animal growls Richard Boone did for Smaug...and done WITHOUT any filtering.  Also, the sound of Smaug's diving when he's attacking Laketown, sounds like a nuclear bomb dropping.  It's this ear-splitting whistling sound.  It's perfect.  You hear that whistling sound and then look up to see the sky on fire by a giant red-golden dragon with a pissed off warg face and you're runnin' the fuck outta there.

And yes, my fellow Nerds, that IS Thundercracker as Bard the Bowman.  And he shoots Smaug.  So we do have that bit of awesome.

Smaug is played by Richard Boone, the guy most famous for playing Paladin from Have Gun, Will Travel.  He's also played Joe Friday's partner on Dragnet, and even had a variety show on cable TV.  

Bilbo is played by Orson Bean, who was on Scrubs once.  He's done a lot of bit parts for TV shows here and there and mostly is a writer for programs rather than an actor.

So, there we go.

And...

You wanna RPG, okay, meet me down at Organized Play in the Old City at 6pm on Thursday.  I'll see if I can ask the GM to fit you into our GURPS Stone Age game.  

Oh, wait, you mean online.  Yeah, I don't do that.  ESPECIALLY with people I don't know.  And I've stated that in journals five or six times already.

Oh and I'm done with Jonathan Long.  I've been done with him since 2011 when I started to write the Warcraft stuff.  Sorry.  I much rather just focus on the Warcraft stuff.  

I don't know who you are, I don't know what you would do...so I don't want to RP with you.  And I've stated that a lot to anyone who asks me.

And like I said, I've pretty much left Jonathan's story.  So even asking me to specifically play him in an RPG is an automatic no.

Man, you were so right about Rifftrax Live. I got back just now from their live Christmas show. They did the Mexican Santa movie, and an "At Your Fingertips" short to boot.

um...not really.  Okay, something you need to know.  I no longer pay attention to what he does.  Therefore, no, I am no longer dealing with him.  I don't know what he does nor do I show interest unless someone decides to point out if he's being a little bitch.

Is he being a little bitch?

As far as I've seen, no.
Felt like asking because I read about him on ED.
What a history you two have.

Yeah, that was made two years ago and updated a year and a half ago.  Roughly.  Trust me when I say if someone lets me know he's being a little bitch, I tend to notify people through a journal that they need to watch out for him.

Since he hasn't been a little bitch lately to any of my friends here or anyone else for that matter...I pretty much chalk it up to my prayers being answered that he finally either got his Internet taken away, or that there is a God and he at last smote Mark out of frustration.  

Either way, Mark has been very silent and I prefer it that way.  And since he's not being a little bitch, I prefer it that I just no longer agree that he exists in any form.  So, I really don't see the point of asking me about him other than to again remind me he exists.
