Welcome one and all to my raiding recruitment post for World of Warcraft!

Bear with me, this recruiting thing is new to me. But this is serious.

Are you excited about raiding (on Alliance side) once Warlords of Draenor is released, but you’re concerned with the changes coming to raid team sizes? Do you really want to raid, but you don’t yet have a team?

Why not consider joining Team Wanda and the Band of Misfits (Azuremyst-US)?

Team Wanda has had consistent success raiding in World of Warcraft, both normal and heroic modes, for years now but always as a ten person team.

Team Wanda is a progression raid team that is serious about killing bosses and completing achievements, but on a limited weekly raiding schedule. Balance!

With the changes coming to raid team sizes in Mythic, Team Wanda is looking to expand it’s roster with some determined, skilled raiders who are willing to work with others as part of a team, put forth a ton of effort and concentration into each boss attempt, and can consistently be on time and prepared.

Have I scared you off yet, or are you still interested?

Here is the plan.

During this summer, in less than a month, Team Wanda will be expanding from the current 10 person team to a 25 team, and begin raiding normal Siege of Orgrimmar. The first 25-person raid is planned for Wednesday, June 4th.

The purpose of starting the 25 team now is to take advantage of being able to play current content cross-server so that the new 25 person raiders can shake out, get used to working as a team, and give prospective new players from other servers a chance to get to know Team Wanda (and vice versa) and decide in advance whether server transferring to Azuremyst-US and the Band of Misfits guild for WoD raiding will work for you.

Let’s be honest, it also gives a new raider from another server a chance to make a new alt on Azuremyst, level up to max and get geared out before WoD is released, so the cost of a server transfer can be avoided if that’s a problem.

Team Wanda’s raid schedule is;

Wednesdays at 6 -8 server (PST)
Sundays 4-8 server (PST)
Occasional Saturdays 4-8 (PST) (during progression)

All schedules will be up on in-game calendar at least a month in advance, so you can plan for raids accordingly.

Team Wanda still needs about 7 full time raiders to fill out the Mythic team. 

One sad note… we’re full on Hunters. I know! But what can I say, Hunters are a popular class.

We would prefer to also have at least 3-4 more players to be part of the team that would be comfortable being rotated in/out on a weekly basis. This is called a bench, we would need it to ensure raids every week when a few people might have real life conflicts. So if you are serious about wanting to raid and giving your all, but you just can’t commit to raiding two or three nights every single week, you could choose to join the guild and be one of the members of the bench.  You’d obviously need to try to absolutely max out your raiding main so that when you are needed off the bench, you’re ready to go. Swapping in and out will help keep the gear up there.

So. Interested?

If you’d like to join and give it a try, contact Alkeehol#2134 (Tom, Team Wanda’s raid leader and Band of Misfits guild leader) for further details. Remember, our first 25 person raid is scheduled for Wednesday, June 4th.

Tom says he will be making himself available in the coming weeks for any inquiries. Remember, cross-server raiding is available until we get closer to the actual expansion, when it will be fish or cut bait time. Or server-transferring time, anyway.

Tom says that your current gear level is not a big issue, as we are building a team primarily for Warlords and not for Siege of Orgrimmar. Siege normal (and eventually heroic) is just our training ground for the new expansion.

You should be willing to start on the legendary cloak quest if you do not already have one on the character you are planning to raid with, as the buffs to drops coming later in the expansion will make it much easier to obtain.  With that in mind, green level gear will NOT be acceptable, there is an island full of free purples to get you started. This isn’t planned as a carrying service, even though it is pre-expansion raiding. There is an expectation of wanting to progress, which means putting in the work to do so, on both a team level and on an individual level.

Loot? I bet you have questions on loot.

Suicide Kings is currently the leading candidate for the 25 person Mythic loot system, however that isn’t set in stone just yet. Tier pieces are on a separate loot table and will be dealt with on a case by case. A majority of the raiders in our current team are fairly well geared in heroic gear, so gearing new players isn’t going to take a long time with the abundant drops that come from 25 mans.

Speaking for myself, BigBearButt’s raiding main, Ursinerate, has a decent smattering of heroic gear and I’m one of the bench players for the 10 person team. So when Tom says the current team is fairly well geared, he’s not kidding.

Yes, we’re serious.

I know the idea of expanding a raid team at the start of summer may sound strange, but if you think about it, when better to begin preparing, trying out new players and getting a team nailed down before the expansion comes out?

Currently the plan is to just tighten up and focus the team in advance of Warlords raiding, running as a 25 person normal Siege of Orgrimmar team and getting all the kinks worked out.

HOWEVER, that does not preclude any existing heroic raid progression.  Our current 10 man team clears Malkorok heroic weekly, and we would like to be able to get back to that if not PAST that point with our newly expanded 25 man squad in the days before Warlords of Draenor.

Wait, Bear. I thought you freaking quit?

Um.

Well, I haven’t yet. At this time I have canceled my account, but there are still 13 days active before it shuts down, and I really don’t know if I am going to be able to break the WoW habit or not, especially in the face of Team Wanda raiding. Maybe I’ll renew for the summer, maybe I won’t.

You should keep in mind that this isn’t about raiding with BigBearButt, I may or not be there, and if I’m not there over the summer I probably won’t have earned a spot in the team once Warlords of Draenor comes out.

If you talk to Tom, you should do so because you want to be part of the most kick ass and fun team full of upbeat energy and ‘can do’ attitude without whining or bitching I’ve ever seen. A team that doesn’t suffer fools gladly, or at all.

If I came, would I feel welcome?

It’s a sad commentary on our times (or on what I see on the internet, anyway) but it’s important to me to say that this is not an all frat-boy college-age raid team. There are people from all walks of life in this team right now, of all ages and sexes, and they are joined by a burning desire to kill some freaking internet dragons.

Don’t come expecting a problem and hoping to find something to offend you, and don’t bring your own problems with you to slop on other people. Respect goes both ways.

That means people won’t be talking racist or sexist crap, but at the same time there may very well be tons of jokes about how drunk some people (including the raid leader) may be during off night raids, because all walks of life are welcome, INCLUDING the hard drinking dragon slayer.

Long post, but we’re kicking it into high gear and hoping to fill out the team before the first raid on June 4th.

Interested?  Contact Alkeehol#2134 through Battle.net or send me an email with your questions to thebigbearbutt@gmail.com and put “Team Wanda” in the header.

I saw a friend mention on Twitter today that he was about to embark on the wonderful journey that is treating Sleep Apnea.

Welcome to CPAP.

I’ve been using CPAP to treat sleep apnea myself for over a decade now, so I know there can be a lot to wonder about in the early weeks.

I didn’t know I had sleep apnea myself. I went in to be checked out because I snore. Like a hibernating bear. We had heard that some treatments for sleep apnea could help reduce or eliminate snoring, so I went in to have a sleep study done.

It was either I do that, or one fine morning Cassie would have had enough and slit my throat in my sleep.

As an amusing anecdote, my snoring was bad enough that one night while we were vacationing in a hotel up in the north woods, Cassie fled the room, went to the bathroom and fell asleep in the empty hot tub, huddled in blankets to try and escape the racket.

Sometimes, sleep apnea can be more life threatening than you realize. I’m telling you, she was gonna shank me for real.

Anyway, so I had a sleep study done and sure enough, I was diagnosed with fairly severe sleep apnea, and the use of a CPAP machine was prescribed.

I sat down and this was the conversation I had about my options afterwards.

“So here are two machines you can choose from, and here is the durable medical provider you will be using for everything, and here are a few mask styles, pick one.”
“But… how do I know what kind of mask I should use?”
“Just pick one.”
“How do I know what size to get?”
“Just pick one, try it, and if it doesn’t fit you’ll have to buy a different size.”
“Can’t I try some different sizes? Or get fitted or something… like, scientific?”
“No, if you put a mask on your face it can’t be resold so you have to buy it before you can try it on.”
“But… that’s got to cost a fortune.”
“That’s okay, your insurance company is paying for it.”
“But what about the machine, isn’t that expensive too?”
“Oh, you’ll be renting that and your insurance company will be paying the monthly rental fee.”
“For how long?”
“For however long you’re on the treatment.”

I’m not joking. And it hasn’t gotten much better, since it’s in the interest of durable medical equipment providers to do this, because hey, it’s not you that’s paying so what should you care if the rental fee for a CPAP machine, for three months, is more than it would cost you to BUY your own machine outright. Right?

Well, some of us do care.

The first thing you should know is, so long as you have your prescription for your CPAP equipment, specifying the pressure settings, you do not have to use any of the equipment providers most clinics try to guide you to. You can be a smart consumer.

I started with a small company called Midwest Medical, and they made a LOT of money off of my insurance company before I switched to a different one called Apria, which also got ridiculous amounts of money until I finally did my research and bought my own machine.

Since then, I use two online retailers of durable medical equipment, CPAP.com and CPAPxchange.com. I have most recently been using CPAPxchange for my equipment, masks, mask repair parts, hose covers, mask wipes, and I just bought a new machine last October from them, because they’ve been pretty outstanding in both price and service. I had one water reservoir arrived with the seal not quite right, and they shipped me a replacement instantly.

I don’t get any kickbacks from them, by the way. This isn’t a paid advertisement. I’m telling you about them because the Auto-CPAP machine with heated humidity I purchased last October cost me, total, $510, the Icon+. It’s been very good, except it’s loud. And I have to unplug it every morning, because the power supply transformer is under the water reservoir, so it heats the water in the chamber up just enough for condensation to form in the hose during the day. But I wanted an Auto-CPAP that was small, cheap, and had a heated humidifier with heated hose. All things considered, it’s outstanding.

Anyway, so for both those websites you can upload your prescription, they keep it on file, and you can purchase your equipment from them.

Also, while even to this day local medical equipment providers refuse to let you try on masks, these website stores have a policy where you can try it and return it if it doesn’t fit. You’re not stuck with a big bill on equipment you can’t use.

The online stores also have resources for many of their masks for fitting charts you can download, print out, cut out of paper and hold up to your face to figure out the right size before you order.

So, buy your gear wherever you want, but be smart. If someone tells you to rent for three months, and it’s going to be more than $500, why not just buy the damn thing? Then you’ve got it for years.

Now, CPAP fixed level or Auto.

Simple answer… auto CPAP will adjust to your pressure needs, and as long as you MAKE DAMN SURE your prescription specifies a high enough top level pressure range to suit your needs… even if your prescription changes over the next few years, it will adjust to you and keep your treatment at the right level. If you get a fixed pressure system and your prescription changes over time you’ll need to take the machine in for maintenance.

I would strongly advise you get a system that has a heated humidifier built in. A CPAP machine is going to be blowing air under pressure down your passages all night long. A heated humidifier will keep you from drying out, and that is very important. If your gums get too dry consistently, it can cause serious dental problems. Not to mention feeling like someone is sandpapering your throat.

I personally use a heated humidifier, and I also have a hose with a heating coil running through it, and I have a hose cover (an insulating blankie) wrapped around my hose. I’ve found that it all helps prevent the humidity from condensing in a cold room and becoming water once it reaches you. Yes, in Minnesota on cold winter nights, it has been known to get cold in a bedroom and condensation in your face sucks.

Your mileage, of course, may vary. I think I could do without the heated hose, since I’m using the hose cover.

All of this stuff can be bought online, by the way. I LOVE the hose cover, because it also helps protect the hose from getting kinked/crimped/crushed. Cheap too.

Okay, so mask sizing, online buying, know where you can find options, heated humidty, check.

Now the quality of life stuff.

I hate having stuff shoved up my nose. Some masks are designed with nasal pillows, a fancy way of saying they’re gonna shove stuff up your nose. I hate those things, so I use a full face mask. Also, that way if my mouth falls open while I’m sleeping, I still get my treatment. And I mostly don’t snore. I like a full face mask, but you should try what seems good for you. My personal favorite is the Quattro. Great cushioning, good headgear, and the mask itself is very quiet. believe it or not, the air leaving the vent holes/exhaust holes can get quite loud on some masks.

But the machine… what do you do if your machine is noisy? My current machine sounds like a jet turbine on takeoff.

What I did was make a sound chamber.

soundbox-closed

soundbox-open

It’s stupid simple to make one.

You need a cardboard box, a knife, and a box of sound absorbing acoustic panels from a home improvement store. They sell them in tile sizes so you can mount them on walls to absorb echoes. And you should be able to find them in a store for cheaper than most of the online places I saw that wanted an arm, a leg, and the mortgage to your house for some foam. I think the box of foam tiles I bought was around $30, the link above is to the pack I bought at the time. What price silence?

I cut a hole in the front of the cardboard box, cut the acoustic tiles to line every surface (with a matching hole in the front, of course) and made sure there was plenty of space all around the machine on the inside of the box for air flow. Air comes in through the hole in the front, has to move around the machine to the intake at the rear, and then into the machine and up through the hose. There are so many acoustic absorbing surfaces any noise would have to pass through, the thing runs dead silent.

None of it is glued, by the way. I trimmed the tiles so they all just fit together fine. The foam is stiff enough not to flop around.

It’s perfect, as long as you don’t mind having a machine in a cardboard box.

Oh, and since it’s just loose panels and a box, I can take it apart and stick it all flat in a suitcase when we travel. This box has been all over the place.

Then there is hose management.

One thing that always drove me crazy was having the hose pulling at the mask on my face.

So, I built a little handy-dandy hose hangar.

hosestand-placed

hosestand

It’s as simple as can be. A piece of wood big enough to slide between mattress and box spring. Some standard pipe pieces from a hardware store. I believe that’s a 1/2″ flange at the bottom with a threaded socket mounted on the board, 1/2″ pipe up to a reducer, a 1/2″ to 3/8″ reducer, then 3/8″ pipe up to a 45 degree bend and a T fitting. I started with 1/2″ for strength at the base and went to 3/8″ cause CHEAPER. And I used a S-carabiner that fit into the T fitting, that happened to have a big enough hook for the hose to slide in, but you could use rope or any sort of thing you cobble together as a hammock or sling for the CPAP hose to rest in.

The key thing for this is, the hose is hanging directly over my head, so no matter which way I turn in the night, nothing gets tangled, and nothing pulls on the mask.

Hmm. I think that’s all the tips I can think of for now. If you have questions, please by all means ask. This stuff is expensive, and you’re going to be spending a LOT of time sleeping with it on your face. It’s best if the stuff works for you.

Thanks for your time.

Do you recall, many moons ago, sweet Elune it was way back in 2008, I did a post called “I don’t know what it is, but it has Aggro?

My good buddy TishToshTesh came up with this insane rendering of my son’s idea for an Engineering Hunter Pet.

You know…

THIS THING.

Gnomish-Aggro-Fish-Tish-Tosh-Tesh

Some of you thought it was an impossible dream.

Some of you even laughed, and not an evil genius, mad scientist laugh appropriate for the occasion but a mocking laugh, a laugh tinged with a tone of derision.

Let’s see who’s laughing now, chuckles.

The first stage of the process has begun.

In the game?

Hell no, in the real world!

Feast your eyes on this, and gaze unbelieving upon the seeds that sow the coming apocalypse.

fishonwheels-kickstarter

And THIS is the video for what they call the Fish on Wheels Kickstarter project.

Look at it.

LOOK AT IT!

Yep.

They’re coming.

Wheels and a guidance control system today, CHAINSAWS AND ROCKET LAUNCHERS TOMORROW!

Mark my words.

You think this is an accident? Oh sure, you see the cute little fishie in the video, they have you thinking, “Aw, how cute, what threat could they possibly be?”

That’s exactly what they want you to think.

But look back up there at the picture at the top. See the grin on that goldfish in the picture?

DO YOU SEE THE GRIN?

There is a day coming, mark my words, there is a day coming when you will walk into a supermarket looking for some tunafish, and there in the aisle will be a dolphin in an armed ATV, and that dolphin will yell at you through their tinny little  speaker, “That better be albacore, BITCH!

And on that day, you will remember.

I warned you, but did you listen? No!

Oh, and while you’re here, why not check out the aggrofish shirts in our lovely gift shoppe?

Thanks to some serious help from the transmog experts in Elitist Jerks mumble chat Tuesday night, I discovered and obtained the final capstone on my Horde Hunter set.

I knew I needed that something, that piece of flair to touch the set off nicely, and I found it in the Vengeful Gladiator’s Longbow for 750 honor.

I am extremely happy with this look, the overall appearance really says ‘serious hunter’ to me.

Ebonsoul the Hunter

If you’re interested in putting together this same set, some of the pieces can be a pain to get and require patience and Auction House stalking, but it’s absolutely NOT gated by raid difficulty. All of these can be obtained from nothing more strenuous than running Heroics to get Justice Points to convert into Honor Points to buy the bow.

The set consists of;

Head – Stylin’ Adventure Hat - BOE hat crafted from a bind on pickup Leatherworking pattern.
Shoulders – Black Dragonscale Shoulders - BOE shoulders crafted from a bind on equip Leatherworking pattern.
Chest – Steel Breatplate (for the silver torc look around the neck and the lack of arm art) – BOE chest crafted from a trainer-purchased Blacksmithing recipe.
Shirt – Stylish Black Shirt - BOE shirt only purchasable from Lisbeth Schneider in Stormwind, which means you need to do some Neutral AH dancing to get it Horde side.
Undercity Tabard
Gloves – Ebonhold Gauntlets - BOE world drop, Auction House bait. Whelpscale Gauntlets (both faction quest reward) and Savage Gladiator Grips (BOP BRD drop) are alternatives.
Belt – Ebonhold Girdle - BOE world drop, Auction House bait. Devolved Drake Girdle (Alliance quest reward) is a lookalike alternative.
Pants – Ebonhold Leggings - BOE world drop, Auction House bait. Savage Gladiator Leggings (BOP BRD drop) and Sunstrider LEggings (Horde quest reward) are alternatives.
Feet – Ebonhold Boots - BOE world drop, Auction House bait. Savage Gladiator Greaves (BOP BRD drop) are an alternative.
Weapon – Vengeful Gladiator’s Longbow - purchased with 750 Honor Points from Kezzik the Striker in Netherstorm, either faction, you can earn 1500 JP from Heroic boss kills and convert to Honor to purchase at 500 JP to 250 Honor conversion. At the moment you get 100 Justice Points per heroic boss kill, and I got enough from just four heroic runs in one night.

I do love this set. I wonder, would it look as good on a human?

No matter how determined, every Hunter has someone to rely on to watch their back.

Watch My Back

Let’s talk about this web series Blizzard and Paul Jr are doing, okay?

Azeroth Choppers, a show whose time really hasn’t come.

Here, check out the most recent episode.

You’d think I’d love this show, because it’s got two things I really like; World of Warcraft and Orange County Choppers…. oh wait, I mean Paul Jr’s custom bike builds.

Thing is, I don’t like it. It’s not even okay, it’s annoying as hell.

In fact, I’ve got a LOT of problems with this thing. Enough that I want to drop the flag and call bullshit on the whole thing.

The first and least irritating point about the whole scheme is, not once, in either episode, has anyone mentioned that the World of Warcraft developers and art crew have already designed two choppers and put them in the game.

If the whole point of the show is to see how incredibly awesome and cool it is to have this guy design two Warcraft themed motorcycles, one Alliance and the other Horde, why in hell wouldn’t you mention that you’ve already done your own take on it yourselves?

THEY”RE ALREADY IN THE GAME, DAMNIT.

If you didn’t play World of Warcraft, you could be forgiven for thinking the choppers on the graphics intro to the show were created specifically for the intro, and weren’t really in the game.

Not once, at any of these meetings where artwork was passed around, ideas traded, concepts tossed out, not fucking ONCE did anyone happen to mention, “Oh yeah, and we already designed our own take on these two faction choppers, here, check it out, tell us what you think.”

Not once? Really?

Or… did they intentionally not film any of that because this is supposed to be some kind of wonderful new collaboration?

Bullshit.

If this is to drive enthusiasm with the existing fans of the game that also love badass hogs, then why not show us exactly what Paul Jr thought of the Blizzard designs already in the game.

Seeing what Paul Jr, a master custom bike designer, thought about the existing bike designs would have been actually relevant to the show and to Warcraft game fans. It would have been an awesome thing to see. Pretending they don’t even exist feels like they’re aiming the show at everyone except WoW players.

I for one, having long familiarity from watching OCC and the bike build offs, would have loved to have seen what Paul Jr thought of their designs from his experienced artistic eye.

Guess talking about chopper design in a video game in a TV show about chopper design in a video game was too much like crazy talk.

I mean, come on. They’re passing around these beautiful full sized high-rez concept art pieces, but nothing about the in-game choppers? No big pictures of bikes with sidecars, the PWN license plates, the trikes the Goblins use, none of that? Not once while talking about what a Horde or Alliance motorcycle might look like did the thought come up.

Bullshit.

Fine, let’s move past that.

Let’s move on to the big “who are you, and what did you do with Blizzard” part of the whole thing.

What we supposedly have here are some of the real powerhouse artists and creative people in Blizzard going to another artist, one that works in chrome and steel, and commissioning two custom pieces of artwork inspired by World of Warcraft.

We’re talking the BIG TWO, here. Chris Metzen and Samwise Didier. These two guys are amazingly talented creative geniuses who have created something that has absorbed my free time and my life outside of family for over eight years.

But let’s not bullshit each other here. They are the heart of a company that is world famous for their mantra – “We’ll release it when it’s done.”

“When it’s done.”

Think about it. Before there was a crazed fan base or a WoW, there was a company named Blizzard that had made it’s bones by saying they wouldn’t release crap just to make a ship date. They’d release it when it was done and up to their standards, and if you want it you’ll just have to wait instead of playing some buggy half-assed shit pushed out the door to turn a fast buck.

So what are we getting here, from these creative giants that have spent years putting quality and artistic vision and excellence before bullshit ship dates and arbitrary deadlines?

In the second episode, we get “We gave you ten weeks when we first commissioned these bikes, but now we’re telling you you’ve only got five. Because fuck you it’s dramatic.”

What the flying fuck is that about? No explanation why.

Put episode one and two together, and what you get is, “Hey guys, glad you could come to this meeting where we are supposed to talk about the design sketches and concept art for what the bikes will look like. What’s that Paul Jr, you say you already have platforms made with frames and tires and shit? ALREADY? Wow, totally blown away. Oh, and I guess it’s a damn good thing you’re already that far along since surprise, we just cut your time in half, hahahaha fuckers.”

Horse puckey.

Either it’s all pre-scripted bullshit for artificially pumped up drama, “oh wow, impossible time to complete, impossible man, oh my god what’ll we do, oh wow.”

OR.

Or it’s all true, it’s not scripted and fake, and the time being cut really was a surprise for Paul Jr, and especially for his two build teams.

Probably not, but let’s pretend. Let’s pretend that it’s being honestly presented.

I’m not going to bitch about not adding more people to each team in the face of changed deadlines. In complex systems, adding more people to a project can actually make things take longer if the existing people have to take the time to train up the new people.

On the cynical side, if they brought ten more skilled craftsmen on board to complete the builds, where would we get the fake drama from? Also, how would we get to know the builder’s personalities if there was an army on the build? And we probably shouldn’t outsource components to other machine shops in the area that had extra waterjet or CNC capacity to make the deadline, because there isn’t much thrill in competently getting things done. Without raging around kicking things and whining about deadlines.

Regardless, we’re pretending that this is all honest and on the up and up.

WHAT THE FUCK are these two artists or Blizzard management in general doing going to another artist and telling them there is a deadline that must be reached and to hell with quality craftsmanship and beautiful art?

Blizzard setting arbitrary deadlines for another artist? Really? We don’t care if it’s ready or not, you have to make the ship date? REALLY?!?!

ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?!

Either way, it’s got no heart.

Don’t get me started on Chris Metzen representing Alliance. Yeah, like he has ever, ever shown a preference for Alliance. Yep, when I think Alliance fanboy, I think Chris Metzen. Talk about scripted for TV.

It’s just a shame. I love me some OCC, I’ve enjoyed all the bike build shows that have been on for over a decade.I’m personally more a fan of Russell Mitchell and his Exile Cycles, when I finally buy one of my own that’s where I will go, but I still love all the build shows.

I still sit around the office with my maintenance crew and we’ll talk about some of the builds that Paul Sr and Paul Jr have done. I think the Dragon bike that OCC did was amazing, and showed what they could do when given a rough idea and were let loose.

Just, why? What benefit do you get from telling an artist working with chrome and steel that he has to rush it?

The carry away here really is, either the whole thing is completely fabricated made-up scripted bullshit, or they really did just tell an artist that the quality and craftsmanship of his final creations isn’t important, just throw some shit together in red and blue with spikes on so we can get this show pumped out to the fans.

Such a great idea for a collaboration and a show that had me so enthusiastic, and here it is I’ve watched episode two, and I’m laughing.

I’m laughing, but it’s not funny. It’s sad.

Holy crap Samwise, Metzen, you’re supposed to be living the dream! Making your own rules, having a blast, showing the world that the old labels of geek and nerd and all that other crap dumped on computer programmers and graphic artists is so last century, you’re fucking AWESOME, you’re Boris Vallejo and Frank Frazetta, you’re geniuses that have done it YOUR way and now you make the rules in the new world, you are the ones everyone else watches and tries to race to catch up to

This is what you come up with?

Is this really the best way you can think of to get the greatest custom Warcraft-themed bikes that ever were?

Because if you’re not trying to get the greatest goddamn custom bikes to fit your vision for Warcraft, what the hell is the POINT OF THE SHOW?!
