Cate Blanchett’s fake Elvish Talent

deathcupcake:

Zevran says the most inappropriate things, therefore I love him (although some of the shtick gets a bit old).

However, I just got Shale yesterday, and I think it might be battling for a tie in favorite one liners.

I just realized I hadn’t run much with Shale and Sten so I’ve been running around with those two and Wyn and oh, it has been fun.Especially when Wyn doesn’t like Shale calling her “elder mage.”

Shale is a good tank but his spells are so fiddly to figure out tactics for - the only drawback. He is fun to play as, though.

deathcupcake:

Two more from this morning.

Yeah, I am easily sidetracked, why do you ask?

I need the Sidetracked one as a title. Eventually there will be an mmo with that and it will call to me…

deathcupcake:

Currently annoyed with main work system because it’s been going up and down all day. I want to get the rather large project done and out of my hair!

Currently relieved that the apparent leak in our downstairs is fixed, but now wondering if we’re going to have to replace the carpet (which is continuous throughout the lower level). Or if it will finally dry out.

Currently wanting to try a new tactic for the Fort Drakon entrance fight and stressing because I might not have picked a good team (I went with my usual, since they’re the best geared and have the most tactics in place).

Big spoilers under cut.

Ah ha, you have now experienced Disappointed/Grumpy Alistair. I am hugely weak against that. Actually I don’t want to disappoint anyone in my party, which is a problem because that sort of happens easily.

Also I have not come to Fort Drakon and am going to totally glom onto any tips you suggest because I am going to finish DA this summer. (If I keep saying that, I’ll do it, right?!)

CollegeHumor Exclusive: "Weird Al" Yankovic Music Video: FOIL (Parody of "Royals" by Lorde)

Like any budding comedy lovers with a boom box or basic cable, we grew up loving Weird Al Yankovic. So when he asked us to help him make the music video for “Foil” (a parody of “Royals”) off Al’s new album, Mandatory Fun, we agreed. Actually, we high-fived each other, threw up from excitement, composed ourselves and agreed.

Over a few marvelous weeks in February and March, our writers and producers worked with Al to bring his “Foil” video to life. Here is the result in all its Yankovician magnificence, featuring cameos from Patton Oswalt, Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant, as well as CH alumni Elaine Carroll and Andrée Vermeulen.

See behind-the-scenes photos here.

I love this video for the turn it takes around 1:17 when you realize it’s not the level of weirdness you thought you were getting at first.

Also Weird Al has always been able to do impressive-expressive-eyebrow-gesture-fu that I admire.

Weird Al’s releasing a video a day until July 21st from his new album. Links all of those found here, WeirdAl.com All of them so far are fun for the usual - weirdness and celebrity cameos. The English major in me is enjoying Word Crimes a lot.

I am having some delightful Al-nostalgia music listening in celebration.

"Wait no, I don’t want that shot! You have to listen to me, we have the same hair!!!"

The Secret World. Still figuring out if I like it or not. I am liking the Mad Scientist hairstyle at least.

Now for a bit of the DA:O intro. Like DAII, I am just not getting the basic controls of this game. I find myself wanting to space bar through conversations, too. >.<

Yes, I made Vel a bit squinty-eyed. It makes me laugh.

I am having SUCH a giggle over this because your mage and my mage (the one I’m now trying to finish with)? They have the same hairdo. Mine’s in red (such a non surprise). Except mine has a dorky hat. Many of the mage hats are deeply silly. And there’s no “turn helm off” option either.

Jareth x The Iron ThroneYou remind him of the babe, and there is no way this could end badly.

Now I&#8217;m never going to remember what the original chair he was sitting in looked like&#8230;Heh.
