  1. Hello there! I'm Mordi, Mordigrim, or Brad. Your pick! I talk about my kiddo all the time too. I think that's par for the course. What's your favorite thing about having twins? Are they playing any games yet? I think at 4 my kiddo and I were playing a Pokemon campaign together (I'd read to him, he'd pick our attacks and name all of our "mons") and playing classic games (NES, Atari, etc. emulators). What's your favorite music to listen to with your kids? What's your favorite music to listen to when your kids aren't around? What's your favorite take-out or delivery food? What's your favorite homemade meal (and who in your life makes it best)? If the person who knows you best had to describe you to someone who had never met you in one sentence, what would they say? Feel free to hit me back with any questions you have! Happy to have you here, welcome to the forums!
  2. That's a weird way to spell Mimikyu.

    Intro [Wow]

    I agree with a lot of your choices! I'd also likely take a Pokemon game for each Gameboy iteration. I might consider taking Mario Kart 64 since I'd definitely take BotW for the Switch for my Zelda fix. GameCube I'd probably take Metroid Prime over Smash Bros. And I'd take Mario Party 10 for the Wii U and Super Mario Galaxy for the Wii. NES would be Super Mario Bros and SNES would probably be Donkey Kong Country. I don't have strong feelings about the Xbox or PS bloodlines, I guess. Maybe KotOR for Xbox, and I'd agree with Halo 3 for 360. THPS2 is a solid choice for PS2 and I never played the following gens of PS but I'd probably take Spider-Man for the PS4 and play it for the first time.
  4. Hopefully our future is much more Star Trek and much less Wall-E IMO. Interesting choice opting for the unknown of the future though, most people go past (or present) with a question like that. Pros: infinite respawns. Cons: infinite deaths. Pokeworld is such a great choice. I have no idea what city or region I'd choose though, there's just so many great ones to choose from! I'd definitely want to travel a lot if I lived in Pokeworld. Then again, I want to travel a lot in our world too. Seems like it takes a lot less to travel in Pokeworld though if preteens have the means to wander entire regions and here I am a working adult and can barely afford a trip/vacation cross-country

    Intro [Wow]

    Hey! I'm Mordi aka Brad! We can be Brad bros! I call dibs on B. Rad though. I was also terrrrrrrible when I started in TBC! We have so much in common I've never done flat roofing (or any roofing for that matter) but a buddy of mine has been doing it for over a decade and from the way he talks about it I can't imagine how anyone sticks with it. I certainly don't have the strength or fortitude to do a job like that. So you're chosen to be a part of a long-term study where you have limited access to electronics. You can play console video games as much as you want and you can bring any game and any number of games you want. The study has every console ever made available for you to use. However the catch is you're only allowed one game per console and once you choose the game for each console you can't change it for the duration of the study. What games and for what consoles do you choose and why? What's your absolute must-have food and/or beverage on the hottest of hot days? How about on the coldest of cold days? Look forward to hearing back from you and getting to know you, welcome to the SoH forums! Feel free to ask me any questions you might have!
  6. Hey there! Mordi here. I believe you were the new friend helping us PVP noobs get some World PVP quests done last night, yeah? Frost DK is a favorite of mine from a lore/flavor perspective. Are you excited for the return of 2H Frost? I'm finally getting around to finishing my Shadowmourne farm on my DK, I'm probably a week or two away still. I've had Shadow's Edge since WotLK but just never bothered to finish it up, now that I can transmog it I actually feel the incentive to get it done Grats on Invincible btw, I got super lucky and got mine in a relatively short number of runs. Still one of my favorite mounts. What are some of your interests outside of WoW? What's your favorite "IRL" thing to do? If you could live in any place at any point in history, when and where would you go and why? What if you included fictional worlds/times, would your answer change? If the person who knows you best had to describe you and your personality to someone who had never met or seen you, what do you think they would say? Happy to have you here, feel free to hit me back with your own questions if you want!
  7. What a great story, I love it. That feeling really is the best. It's amazing how those things can stick with you for so long. WoW was the first game that ever really gave me that feeling and that's probably why I'm still playing it some 13 years or so after I started. Dude, right? I can remember when my son was that age. It sounds weird but that time period was when I really started to see him as his own unique human being and not just an extension of me that I had to coddle and protect. I can remember when he started showing interest in things on his own, not just because it was what I liked (the Jake and the Neverland Pirates phase went on for far too long imo lol). Taking him to the zoo around that age is one of my favorite memories, just watching him absorb all the sights and sounds and just really take everything in for the first time. It's an amazing thing to watch. In my experience, this only grows more pronounced with age. We had a LeapPad. He loved it. It was definitely his favorite thing for a solid couple years. I don't think he quit playing it on a near daily basis until we got a Switch and he graduated to Super Mario Odyssey. Right now his biggest obsession is Minecraft. He would play Minecraft every hour of every day if I'd let him. I never got into Minecraft so I can't even really help him with that one but at this point he's more likely to be teaching me things than vice versa. It happens so fast, one day you wake up and your kid is smarter than you in a lot of ways. I knew it would happen, I just didn't know it would happen at 7 years old
  8. My local BBQ spot makes a pulled pork grilled mac & cheese and it's so good that I sometimes have dreams about it. Buttered Texas toast, melted cheese, a scoop of their made-in-house mac & cheese, and a pile of pulled pork. Cole slaw and fried green tomatoes on the side and a cold pint of a hazy IPA and it's good enough that if it was my last meal I'd look down on my empty corporeal husk and think "yeah, that was a good choice". So anyway, I'm Mordigrim, Mordi for short. Brad is also acceptable. I'm not picky. I started playing in TBC and I also raided through most of Cata. I left raiding partially through Dragon Soul to focus on real life things, although to be honest I was probably a bit burnt out as well. What's your favorite raid or raiding memory from those early expansions? My favorite raiding memory is still clearing Heroic Lich King. A group of friends and myself left a toxic guild that had hit a wall and couldn't get through the encounter and formed our own 10-man guild. It took a lot of work but downing it felt epic, it was such a great in-game story and encounter and the vindication we as players felt of doing it on our own without the toxic people we left behind was awesome. I still wear "Bane of the Fallen King" as my title more often than not. That group would mostly end up going our separate ways for various reasons and that's when I landed in SoH. SoH has been my home since mid-T11, even after I left raiding the community here kept me around. Gaming with a kid in the house can be a challenge! I have a 7 year-old son and I can't even tell you how often I'll be mid-dungeon or at a pivotal point in a BG or something when he suddenly needs my attention Just last night I was in the middle of a Horrific Vision with Esta and Malovo and sure enough, the kiddo had gotten the orange juice out of the fridge and was crying because he couldn't get it open and he needed orange juice right away. The in-game follow feature has bailed me out several times now lol. He's starting gaming himself now which can be fun, he played WoW for the first time a little while ago and so far his favorite thing is being driven around in my Mechano-Hog. It's the little things, I guess. What are some of your favorite things to do with your kiddo? You're setting out on a fantasy adventure to save the world from a big bad evil guy and their legion of minions. You can bring two people with you. One must be a real person but can be from any point in history, you have the capability to pluck them from any point in time to join your party. The other must be a fictional character but can be from any fictional work of your choice. Who are your two adventuring partners and why? Look forward to getting to know you, feel free to hit me back with any questions you might have!
  9. Ok so I don't really use recipes for anything outside of baking. I kind of have guidelines, I guess? Learning to cook was just hanging out in the kitchen with mom/grandma and just helping and watching what they did, there wasn't a written recipe for most meals. I can give you tips and tricks but I don't really have a recipe to share. Tips for fried chicken: Use peanut oil to fry in (assuming you don't have an allergy). It's the most neutral tasting frying oil imo so you taste the chicken and spices and not the oil. I use a big Dutch oven for frying and keep my oil temped at about 325, allowing it to rise back to 325 between pulling one batch and dropping the next. I like to "marinate" my chicken in a mix of buttermilk, dijon mustard, and cayenne or chipotle pepper (depending on my mood). Overnight is best but in a pinch you can let it sit for as little as 2 hours. When it's time to fry, I have three bowls of stuff to make breading. First bowl is flour (unbleached, all-purpose), baking powder, kosher salt, ground black pepper, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, smoked paprika, dried oregano, and whatever other dried herbs/spices I'm feeling that day. Sometimes I sub chipotle powder for cayenne, sometimes I add rosemary and thyme, it really varies. Second bowl is a beat egg, buttermilk, and dijon mustard (sometimes I add a shot of Tabasco chipotle sauce here too). Third bowl is flour, salt, baking powder, and panko or plain bread crumbs. Each piece goes from bowls 1-3 straight into the oil. Don't overcrowd, should be about a fingers width between each piece. Pull it when it's golden brown and then I use a cookie rack with paper towels under it to drain the excess oil. Probe for temp, if it's not 165 I just put it on a cookie sheet in the oven at 325 to finish cooking while I do the next batch. Tips for gumbo: Start here: https://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/shrimp-gumbo-recipe-1946875 Alton Brown's Good Eats episode on gumbo has some great tips (like baking the roux while you prep everything else, baking a brick roux is so easy and has changed my life for the better). If you can find the video, check it out. I use more vegetables than Alton Brown. My initial mix that goes into the roux is usually onion, celery, carrot, bell pepper, and jalapenos. I also don't add my garlic right away, I usually add it just a bit before adding the tomatoes and stuff to avoid it going bitter while the other veggies are being cooked down. My wife doesn't do seafood so I usually skip the shrimp broth and make a chicken stock instead. I usually use the meat from a whole chicken and a couple links of andouille sausage as my protein in the gumbo and saute some shrimp for myself on the side to toss into my own bowl. If I remember correctly, Alton advises against using both okra and file powder. I disagree. I add okra when I add my tomatoes and spices and then add file powder to taste to each bowl. The best gumbo side in my opinion is cornbread. More specifically, cheesy jalapeno cornbread. I do cheat here and use Jiffy mix. Two boxes of Jiffy corn muffin mix, one can of cream corn, minced jalapenos, and thick shredded cheddar. Bake per the instructions on the mix, super easy and so good. Saaaame. Whenever Bath & Body Works has a sale I stock up on shea body creams to survive the cold months
  10. I would like my bonus points now as I'm well aware of one of the funniest characters on P&R. April/Andy are my favorites but the Sapersteins are all absolutely hilarious as foils/antagonists for Tom. I think I am an aggressively needy raccoon who howls a lot some days. We have two dogs. Both mutts. One is German shepherd/pitbull mix named Ragnar who is super lovey and needs affection and pets at all times. The other is a black lab/blue heeler mix named Boyd who kinda has the personality of the average house-cat. He loves attention but only on his terms and when he's in the mood for it, he hates rain and walking on wet ground/snow, and absolutely positively must have a blanket or pillow available for lounging at all times. I love Harry Potter! I have all the books, grew up reading them (Sorcerer's Stone was given to me in 6th grade and Deathly Hallows came out when I was about 20 so I was just the right age for peak Potter fandom), and have been trying to get my 7yo started on them (without being overly pushy about it because I don't want him to be like "ugh Dad I'm not reading your dumb wizard books"). When my son was born he was in the NICU and we were encouraged to read short stories to him when we weren't able to hold him so he could hear our voices and feel our presence and the book I took with me to read to him was Tales of Beedle the Bard. I think I would definitely be a Hufflepuff (I'd like to think loyalty, kindness, and tolerance are traits I exemplify on my best days). I've never read the Golden Compass series but I should! I liked the movie and have thoroughly enjoyed the HBO series so far (I have only watched the first three episodes). I think you've inspired me to add the books to bookshelf sometime soon. Disc golf. Even when I'm not gaming I'm still doing what might be the nerdiest of outdoor activities. There's a collecting aspect to it as well and I dye discs too so there's also an art outlet for me in it. I also volunteer every summer at a camp for kids with type 1 diabetes (I have t1d and was a camper at the camp as a kid, my wife was a camper there too that's how we met) and that's super important to me. Oh and there's my Pathfinder (think Dungeons & Dragons if you're not familiar) hobby. My Pathfinder group also plays lots of board games and occasionally Magic the Gathering as well. I have a lot of interests, I guess. Southern fried buttermilk chicken. It's my go-to comfort food, it reminds me of being a kid and visiting grandma's house for dinner, and it's probably one of the first things I learned to cook myself. Gumbo. I. Love. Gumbo. Again, total comfort food. It also takes me several hours to prep and cook and it becomes an all-day activity for me and I find the process of making it very meditative/therapeutic. Chicken Pad Thai (preferably from my local spot, Chim's Thai Kitchen). I can't not include at least one Asian dish of some sort and of all my Asian favorites Chim's Pad Thai is probably my most favorite. Lox and everything bagel sandwich. I feel like I need to include a breakfast meal on this list and if I had to pick just one this would be it. Chicken Alfredo. It's my wife's favorite food and I'd be heartbroken if I couldn't make it for her/us anymore. Full disclosure, if I answered this question again tomorrow it might be an entirely different five answers Bear. Bears are my favorite animal. I've always called them my spirit animal. I love bears so much. I love the way they look, I love the way they lumber around, and I love the idea of hibernating through the winter and just skipping to spring. Plus my wife says I'm basically Fozzie Bear already so there's that. I'm drawing a blank right now but I might come up with more for you later. Hopefully some other folks pop in over the next few days and say hello as well!
  11. Evil Dead 2 is easily my favorite of the genre too. It's the perfect balance of classic horror and dark humor. I love everything about it. I'll definitely check the podcast out, I'll queue it up Monday when I'm back at work. However, don't go praising my tastes too much just yet. Yes, I absolutely love all those things. But I also unironically love things like Katy Perry, rom-coms, the color pink, and I'm super into Bath & Body Works scents. I have a wide variety of interests
  12. Hey there, Jocelyn! I'm Mordigrim. Also Brad. Sometimes Mordi. Rarely Bradly. Occasionally Bardly. You can choose whatever one you like (or make up your own) and run with it, I'm not picky. If you're looking for a guild full of cool people you might be disappointed. Speaking for myself, I certainly trend more toward being a nerd than being cool Tell me more about your half-bengal cats! How many do you have? What are their names? What are their personalities like? How long have you had them? Why half-bengals? What are some of your favorite book series? What is the one book series everyone should absolutely read at least once? If you had to choose one famous (or infamous) person or fictional character as a role-model for the way you'd like to live your life, who would it be and why?
  13. Triple best friends, it is. Evil Dead 2, Friday the 13th Part 3, The Thing, The Shining, Hellraiser, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Pet Sematary, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Halloween (yes I know those last two were 70's lol) are all favorites of mine. I'm a sucker for nostalgia flicks in general but classic horror specifically is definitely a favorite of mine. What's the podcast rec? I'm always looking for new podcasts to get me through the work day.
  14. Fel fire, I hope. I haven't played 5E, I'm only tangentially aware of the ruleset from listening to podcasts that play 5E. I think if 1E Pathfinder is a 10 out of 10 on the complexity scale, 5E is probably a 4 or 5 and 2E Pathfinder is probably a 6. Still more complex than 5E but significantly easier to pickup than 1E Pathfinder. But again, I haven't personally played 5E so I may be off on that scale. Did we just become double best friends? Here's my beloved battle vest (that's a Suicidal Tendencies patch hiding under a fold on the front lower right). Some patches I still need to add are Fugazi and Descendents, then probably some Rocksteady stuff if I can find it. I'd like to add a Toots & The Maytals patch if I find one that matches the aesthetic, otherwise I may just settle for a Trojan Records patch. Might also paint some checkers on somewhere. It's a neverending work in progress.
  15. Hello there, new friend! You can call me Mordigrim or Brad, I answer to either. Mordi also works. If you fancy your own variation, that probably works too. I see that you are maining a Warlock. That means we are automatically best friends. You have no choice in the matter. Ok so first let's talk D&D. Are you playing 5E? What's your current race/class? I'm a Pathfinder player. Currently still playing 1E Pathfinder in two ongoing campaigns, my main is a Lizardfolk Barbarian at the moment. I've started buying 2E Pathfinder books too, it's a bit more streamlined and not as crunchy as 1E so I'm hoping to teach it to my 7yo son. He's been vaguely interested in my Pathfinder hobby for a while but after seeing the movie Onward recently he has decided he's all in and wants to play a fantasy RPG. I'm definitely looking forward to it. You mentioned music. What kind of music? Are you a multi-genre person or do you have a favorite genre? If you could see any three bands/artists (alive or dead and from any point in history) in one night at a show who would you pick and why? You're transformed into a tree. You can be any kind of tree. Your roots can be placed in any place in the world but as a tree you can't make the choice to move at any point. You're a magical tree that can see, hear, smell, and perceive the world around you but you can't speak, communicate, or otherwise interact with your surroundings (aside from natural tree things like growing limbs/roots, dropping seeds/leaves, etc). Tell me about your new home and life as a tree.
  16. I'm 100% with you on that. I much prefer making things myself and any time I can make something from scratch instead of buying pre-made, I do. I love learning new techniques and recipes, experimenting is half the fun. I also find making things I know and am comfortable with to be almost meditative in a way. Making a dough by hand or chopping lots of vegetables or making a good roux are all things I can get lost in, sometimes I just put on some good music and zen out making food. Can I get the Grizzly Hills soundtrack to play on my farm if I choose there? Because that might be enough to change my answer I'm glad you liked Perfect Day! I love turning people on to Dem Atlas. His music is super catchy and fun to sing along to and he's super energetic and charismatic live. He was also incredibly friendly and humble the couple times I met him after a show. Great great artist all-around imo. The song "Hay Fever" was written about the day Micheal (Eyedea) had to have his dog put down, it is an interesting and macabre coincidence that he also died in October (the lines "winter takes the warm away, spring takes the cold away/summer takes the rain away and fall took away my friend" are certainly quite haunting with that knowledge). It hits me in the feels every time, I think if you listen to the lyrics again knowing it's about his dog it has a whole new emotional impact. There's a few lines that conclude with "but I don't need you out there somewhere if I have you in my thoughts" that are both super sad and also weirdly comforting to me. It also reminds me of another Eyedea song, "Here For You", and specifically these lyrics: I see the beauty of it all, and it feels like a dream And at that time I appreciate the rivers course Some call it God, reality, momentum, force I stare up at the naked moon, and she stares down at me Outside false boundaries I’m all I look outward to see The universe is not something separate from yourself I know you feel alone, but that's why I'm here to help I know you feel alone, but just look up at the stars And everything that is out there is what you really are Eyedea was such a beautiful writer. I miss him as much as one can miss someone they never personally knew, it's weird how you can feel so connected to someone through their art.
  17. I love this answer because it's kinda similar to what my answer would be. I would have to pick chicken Alfredo because it's my wife's favorite dish and it's something I make for her as a pick-me-up whenever she has a rough day at work or is just feeling down and it always brings us both some happiness. It's the ultimate comfort food for us. I love making my own sauce (people don't seem to realize how easy Alfredo is or how much better fresh homemade Alfredo is than canned!) but I have to admit I don't make my own noodles. My back-up plan if it was a baking-only competition or something would be cheesecake. Sometimes for family events I make a cheesecake with Oreo crust and sour cream topping and my family just goes crazy for it, it takes a while to make a proper cheesecake but the results are well worth it in my opinion. I love how much thought you put into this! I had to Google Philippine Eagles to see what they looked like and their tuft of feathers on their head reminds me of the Muppets in the most adorable way, I love it. I've always told my wife if I could pack our family up and leave our lives behind for any place I'd take us to Scotland and live in the foggy Highlands raising Highland cattle (I just love their early 2000's Patrick Stump hairdos to be honest). I've never been to northwest US/southwest Canada but I can totally picture the aesthetic in my head. What would be your favorite fish to fish for on your dream farm? I do a lot of largemouth bass fishing where I live now, I imagine on my dream Scottish farm I'd probably be fishing for trout. If I could pick a fictional world (and also not get mcfucked lol) I'd choose Pandaria. But the Shire and Pokeworld (not sure which region, I'd have to think about that) are excellent suggestions. Atreyu and The Weeknd? You get a solid A+ on this answer. I didn't know the other song so I pulled it up on Spotify and it's great too. Excellent choices all around. I think my choices might change day-to-day but right now they'd be something like this: Positive: "Perfect Day" by Dem Atlas (very tough to decide between that and "Sunshine" by Atmosphere) Negative: "Hay Fever" by Eyedea and Abilities (also considered "The Hammer" by Kublai Khan TX but decided my negative moods are more often related to sadness than anger) Neutral: "Everlong" by the Foo Fighters (this choice could/would certainly change every day, maybe even several times a day) Today? Thai noodles/stir-fry sounds great. Yesterday? I probably would have said Southern comfort food. Tomorrow? I might decide I like Jamaican jerk chicken better than any other food in the world. My tastes are varied and my favorites change often. Some of the staples for me are American Chinese (we have a regional variation of cashew chicken around here that I could eat my weight in every day and never get sick of it and who doesn't love fried wontons, crab rangoon, and pot stickers?), Southern comfort food (fried chicken, fried okra, corn fritters, fried pickles, jalapeno corn bread, oh my I'm getting hungry), and BBQ (mostly KC and St. Louis influenced around here, sweet tomato-based sauces, burnt ends, ribs, pork steaks, etc). My wife's favorite is Italian so that's also on heavy rotation around here. My favorite thing that I cook myself is probably gumbo. I swear the only real answer to your question is "all of them." Macho Man Randy Savage. https://youtu.be/8C4lK41SX-Q He wore the best clothes, had the best catchphrases, and even when he wasn't making any sense at all he made people believe in him with his energy level alone. Edit: my wife says the real answer to this question is Fozzie Bear, for his terrible jokes and general demeanor (she also suggested that when I'm cranky I'm more of an Earl Sinclair from the Dinosaurs). Bear. Big ol' grizzly bear. I just love bears so much. I'd just lumber around, not really afraid of anything, munch on some salmon maybe, sleep for months at a time, and generally just be all fat and snuggly. Bird would be a close second, just to be able to fly.
  18. Hello there, Soju! I'm Mordigrim. I also answer to Mordi. Or Mord. Or also sometimes I'm called Brad. You're welcome to choose the one you prefer and I'll roll with it. You can probably even make your own variation and I'm still likely to answer to it. Ok so you're going to have to answer some questions. They're super duper serious. You're asked to tryout for a cooking show and you have to cook or bake the dish from your repertoire that your friends or family enjoy the most. What do you make and why, who is it you're thinking of when you pick the dish? What are your top three favorite birds that aren't chickens, ducks, or geese and what makes them great? If you could choose any location in the world for your dream farm and travelling to visit the people you care about wasn't an issue, where would you go and why? What if you could include fictional worlds or locations, would your answer change? If you could choose three songs to be played when you enter a room depending on your mood/tone (one positive, one negative, one neutral), what would you pick? Happy to have you here and getting to know SoH and I look forward to reading your responses! Feel free to hit me back with questions of your own!
  19. That sounds like a sad fact to me ☹ I now feel a greater obligation to create the image for you.
  20. I love everything about this visual. I want to draw this character, name him Jimbowski Gesari, and use him as an NPC in a tabletop RPG game.
  21. 1. I'm not riding a horse, I don't have that skill in my repertoire. You could be, I guess. But for some reason I imagine you're actually a centaur and this is a trick question. 2. I'm mostly a human person as far as I know, no dog or cat genetics in me that I'm aware of. I do have dogs, we have two family dogs right now. But I also like cats even though we don't live with one at the moment. I'm a fan of animals of all kinds really, I don't discriminate. 3. Hard to say. Am I more or less likely to go insane if I'm not exactly mentally stable to begin with? My younger self would probably be more bothered than my current self who was embarking on the time travel adventure to begin with. But is time linear? Does driving my past self crazy affect my current self or does it create a new alternate timeline with a crazy me? 4. Being a force user would be pretty sweet and leaves the door open to a wide range of possibilities. I also really love Lying Cat from Saga and although his power is a minor one relative to a lot of other fantasy powers it would be really cool regardless. Having access to arcane magic from a Pathfinder/D&D world would also be great. And, I mean, who hasn't wanted to be either Wolverine, the Hulk, Thor, Superman, Spider-Man, Green Lantern, or even Deadpool at one point or another? There's really just so many options. I think I'd take Lying Cat though, it's simple enough that people won't expect me to be a hero or savior of some sort so I can stay low-key and have low responsibility ("with minor power comes minor responsibility" - Uncle Brad) but it's also a power I'd use every day several times a day. Or maybe I'd just take flight. I deserve an F on this answer just because I'm being so indecisive.
  22. Dang, you got me on a technicality. Ok, I have to give you a passing grade for your critical thinking.
  23. They're basically Girl Scout Thin Mints in M&M form. Aka the greatest candy invention in generations. Now to grade your responses. 1. I'll give you a B. You've clearly put some thought into it and chosen a winning team. But any team that doesn't include the Macho Man Randy Savage can't get an A from me. 2. A+. Jalapeno, pork, and pineapple gets an automatic A regardless of the food form it's topping or accompanying. Nachos, tacos, pizza, sandwich, whatever. Those three are just great. You could have picked almost any other two toppings and as long as it wasn't something that ruined the entire dish you were getting an A off those alone. That being said my five would be chorizo, queso blanco, chopped canned chipotles in adobo sauce, fresh avocado, and roasted corn salsa. 3. Solid A. All Eyez and Morning View are fantastic choices. Journey isn't my jam, but I can respect it. I'm tangentially aware of Queensryche but can't say I've ever listened to any of their albums start-to-finish. I don't know Madeon but the mention of 8-bit is enough for me, I'll be checking that album out soon. Some easy picks for me would include When Life Gives You Lemons, You Paint That Shit Gold by Atmosphere (indie hip-hop), In Utero by Nirvana (alternative rock), Metamodern Sounds In Country Music by Sturgill Simpson (outlaw country), Teenage Dream by Katy Perry (pop), Misfits (aka Collection 1) by the Misfits (punk), Legend - The Best of Bob Marley & The Wailers (reggae), and Ascendancy by Trivium (metalcore). There are several others I'd try to sneak in by further exploiting subgenre differences (notably Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) by the Wu-Tang Clan (classic/90's hip-hop), Led Zeppelin IV (classic rock), and probably Good Kid m.A.A.d City by Kendrick Lamar (modern/mainstream hip-hop)) but those would be a few of my first choices. 4. D. Ok so there was no actual question 4 so I can't in good conscience give you a full-on F. But you didn't have any questions for me/us and I feel like that should at least be noted. So I'm giving you a D for now and should you have any fun questions for me that grade can be reevaluated based on the quality of the questions.
  24. Greetings, Jimmy Jim Jimmy Jim Jim Jim Jim (https://youtu.be/F663h2R_FDk for anyone not familiar with Muppet Treasure Island). I'm Mordi, Mordigrim, Mord, or Brad, Bradly, or Bardly depending on who is addressing me. I'm most likely to answer to the Mordi variations or just plain Brad. If you're looking for a team-first atmosphere, SoH is a great option. I started playing WoW in TBC and bounced around from guild to guild as various groups rose and fell due to various circumstances until I stumbled upon a recruitment post for a T11 Heroic progression group looking for a Warlock. As they say, the rest is history, I've been with SoH in some capacity ever since then. I do have some super important, very serious, not a joke at all, make-or-break questions for you. You're entering a high-fantasy dungeon. You're you from real life. You can bring any four people or humanoid characters either fictional or non-fictional and from any point in time or any fictional universe to help you survive and hopefully complete the dungeon. Who do you bring and what are their roles? What is your role and how do you contribute? You're constructing the perfect plate of nachos. You're allowed five toppings; no more, no less. The chips themselves are not a topping and do not count against your topping limit. What five toppings do you choose? Bonus question: what beverage do you pick to accompany your plate of nachos? You're making a Spotify playlist. You may only use whole albums and for each band you choose to add to the playlist you can only use one album from that band. You may add as many different bands/albums as you like. However, no two bands/albums can be from the same genre (subgenres can be tricky so as long as you can articulate why two things aren't the same genre you get a pass, basically it's an honor system). What are some of the bands/albums that definitely make your playlist? Feel free to hit me back with any super important, very serious, not a joke at all, make-or-break questions you have for me.
