What's playing on my PC?

Well hello,
Over the last, month, I had left my guild in which I was close to becoming an officer, I had joined in pre-ulduar after leaving my guild of a long time since pre-wrath, it just didn't work out in the end.
But I left the newest guild due to the members not liking my methods of raid leading, but I'll summon it up into a few points:

  • If you talk in vent when you aren't meant to, I'm going to tell you off.
  • If you be a *insert bad word* in my raids, I will be that to you as well.
  • Don't stuff around during boss fights, only talk when you are meant to, if you aren't a healer, tank or other important role, you just do your job, and do it properly.
  • I try to do things ASAP so we can have fun, I make my raids fun for everyone, so don't be bad.

I had a few complications with 2 members, one being *the 8th best priest* on the server, yet, a very bad individual, he was later gkicked after an officer left due to the *8th best priest* saying bad things about him - so instead of the priest talking to the officer about the bad things he did what I consider, immature.
The other one was someone who turns up to raids in a bad state, and used donations to gain leverage, I had sorted any bad tensions with him, and I assumed the first individual had sorted it.

After the priest was gkicked there were some unhappiness, he was a good priest but if the officer has his name run through mud, what was done was done, he cannot expect to get away with it, he was a previous raid leader, his title was taken off him due to abusing his powers, his last warning and then he got gkicked.

So all through that and crap sorted aside, I was demoted as the priest used his gear to gain leverage and got me demoted.

Moral of the above story - I'd take better people, rather than better geared, to a raid. As a raid leader, I would like things to be efficiently done.

So that made me think how much of a bad community WoW is as a whole, so I decided to quit WoW for the time being, as I don't feel like forking out $50 to transfer to a more mature community (I hear the RP servers are more mature) well, I just can't fork out $50 for it.

So I decided to pick up Eve during the WoW phases in Ulduar, which as I hear has been nerfed to the point of PUGable.

So for now, I am playing Eve, it isn't as hardcore friendly as one would think, but it's good none-the-less.

So, I finished watching Avatar: The Last Airbender

As an adult, I normally DON'T watch cartoons.

I saw my nephew, who's 10 years old watching Avatar, he's been watching it on Nickelodean since season 1, and I'd sit and read and watch the TV for an episode here and there, and thought most Anime was the same, but Avatar wasn't really anime by looks, and after reading about it, I see it's inspired by Asian culture and history and stuff.

So, I watched all seasons over the course of 3 days and found that it is a totally awesome show, and I feel a part of me has gone, now that there's no more left.

True story, it's a cool show, even for us adults. I tried the Nick game thingy, which sucks, but hey, it's meant for kids, not adults.

The shows very dramatic and such, and reminds me of HBO's Rome, in terms of dramatic music.

Good show, I reccommend it to anyone who dislikes Anime, but likes the ideas behind it.

I mean, who doesn't like people flinging magic and such at people? It's a win-win situation.
