Kontroversial Keith: Saying It and Meaning It.

  • Norwegian Wood the Movie

    I finally managed to see the movie version of Norwegian Wood. Definitely, I was disappointed by the director’s interpretation in how he ended up cutting numerous parts and emphasizing the sex aspects over some of the more critical dialog or introspective parts. But I have to say that the general look and feeling of the…

  • The Generation War

    Right now, there’s a huge war going on, but it’s not a physical one being waged. It really isn’t class structure either, although part of it involves classes. The war being waged is a generation one where there’s a lot of older views that are conflicting with the way the world is evolving. This isn’t…

  • How You Can Contribute To Prevent SOPA

    The big controversy in congress is about the SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act). The thing is that the primary supporters for this bill are Big Media. In my opinion, this is the last desperate attempt by Big Media in their fight against new media (i.e. the internet) by giving the government and themselves the ability…

  • Tempest Keep First Try

    After reading that Tempest Keep was doable solo, I decided to give it a shot with my two friends. First note: LOTS OF GOLD DROP. Great place to farm if you want to do something outside of Heroics and Cataclysm raids with just a few friends. I think you probably need between 4-5 people, at…

  • Making Progression With My Warrior

    Since this weekend was rather slow in terms of people being on, I decided for the most part to push my warrior finally. I finally managed to get her over the hump of level 60 with some power leveling help from a few friends. Once she hit 62 though, I took her to Zangarmarsh to…

  • Why Dailies *ARE* A Good Game Mechanic in World of Warcraft

    There was an interesting topic on the Blizzard discussion boards that I could not post to since the limit was reached. However, the original post described dailies as being a poor design to World of Warcraft because “it feels like a job.” While I acknowledge the sentiment, I think that the poster has failed to…

  • Why Power Leveling and Instance Grinding Isn’t the Best Method for Leveling in WoW

    A while back when I was leveling my first few toons on a PVP server, I got into leveling via instance grinding. At first, it was pretty fun because you just had to learn the instance and “go with it.” Sometimes, you met horrible players and other times you met great players. But the thing…

  • Why Level Caps in Games Sucks

    I’ve never been a fan of level caps in RPGs. AD&D had them in many games. If you bought something like the original Pools of Radiance Gold Box edition, you were limited to 8 or so on average. Only by getting the expansions you would be able to receive more levels. The problem I found…

  • Mist of Panderia Announced at BlizzCon 2011

    As anticipated the latest expansion to the World of Warcraft series was announced at BlizzCon 2011 on Friday. My first reaction after seeing the introduction of the Panda (or rather Panderan) race was: WTF?????? Quite honestly, I thought it was a joke. But alas it’s not April Fools. Even reading the reactions from others, a…

  • American Pro-Wrestling and Me

    I used to blog quite a bit about the pro-wrestling scene. For over a year now, I’ve pretty much stopped watching all current pro-wrestling. The problem is that I simply dislike the products heavily and find nothing compelling anymore. I do have a few people that I like, but I simply do not want to…
