World of Warcraft (WOW)
Those of you who have been reading me for a while know that I have been interested in YouTube for a while. Perhaps it is because I don't really watch television. I don't know. Many of the videos are of low production quality, but I subscribe to minouye, and he has a recent series on World of Warcraft (WOW).
World of Warcraft is a MMORPG (massively multiplayer online role-playing games), made by Blizzard Entertainment. Apparently millions of people play this game, and there are expansion packs, a market to allow others to "level up" your character, etc. I have viewed four of the five parts (those are the ones available to date), and I am amazed that there is this world I knew nothing about. Millions of people do this, and I did not even know about it. I think I am a little out of touch, however.
When the first Survivor program aired, years ago, there were pools at work. Okay, I did not know much about how the pools worked, but I am think it was some way to gamble on who won the reality TV program. And people would talk about the show the following day, for more time than the show lasted. Completely boggled my mind, but these were my co-workers, and they seemed fairly normal. But it was a different world. I did not know that world, like I don't know World of Warcraft.
I suppose blogging is a different world. But it seems more easily to relate to. Perhaps that is because I am part of it; I don't know. One thing I have learned from blogging is a bit about HTML. I mean, before I had a Blogger account, I had no idea what an anchor tag was, and some might argue that Blogger should have kept me in the dark with a better interface. I am all for that. But mostly, blogger taught me to write a one-page post in 20 minutes. And I really like that.
Today, I was supposed to do a random Friday blog, but, well, I have been busy and have not really thought about it much. Sorry. They are fun to do, but I don't feel random today. I also normally do a YouTube entry, and this will serve that purpose. But it is not really a review.
I have been really impressed with the number of votes cast for the various contestants. More importantly, I have seen some discussion on other blogs. And I have done a little bit of reading. Not as much as I want to do, but some. One of the blogs I saw originally, I really liked, and now, I can't remember the name of the blog to add it to my blogroll. Frustrating. Guess I will have to visit all 57 again to find it.
Have a wonderful Friday. There are so many worlds out there. Don't get lost in your own little worlds. Or maybe you should. Occasionally getting lost is what we really need.
