Kella Nightbow Nekkid! OMG!


If you play Warcraft, the beauty of this goes far beyond the actual drawing.

The Daily Blink is fast becoming one of my favorite little stops in my Google Reader and this comic is one of the reasons why.

I mean, c'mon. She's hawt. Maybe the next one'll put her on a mailbox?



And, I won't lie. Maybe if I send enough people their way, they'll let my little warlock guest one day.

Is the Governator the One, True Barbarian?

Newsarama reported earlier this morning that Jason Momoa has been cast as the new Conan The Barbarian.

After a couple of moments staring at the picture, I went ahead and tweeted out the news with fan girl delight. It feels like a good time for a reboot and Momoa feels like an interesting choice.

So, I was surprised when Rotten Tomatoes tweeted back that Momoa might be facing an uphill battle when it came to taking on the very "Arnold" role. In my mind, it's been long enough to allow for a new actor to step in and make the role his but I also know Rotten Tomatoes has been watching film reactions for a long time, so I'm not gonna blow off the opinion.

Now, I'll admit. Maybe it's because I think Momoa is sexier than Arnold ever was. Maybe it's the babe factor. Newsarama contributor Vaneta Rogers dropped into the conversation and her thoughts echoed mine.

Maybe we're dazzled by the dreads?

What do you think? Can Jason Momoa make you forget Arnold? Or is the Governator forever "Conan"?

The Over/Under On Toilet Paper. Bet Me It Doesn't Matter?

If you've never considered the ramifications of your toilet paper roll orientation, be warned.

Your relationship may be at stake.

As @loquaciousmuse tweeted earlier today:

If a guy I was dating had his toilet paper go under instead of over - possible dealbreaker. I don't put up w/ that kind of inanity.

While you may have never thought about it, allow me to explain and -- if possible -- save your relationship in the process.

Toilet paper can be placed on the roll flap up or flap down (as @SixOkay says). Flap up means over, flap down means under. With me so far?

Why does this even matter, you may ask? Let's compare.

Flap up:

  1. Not only do you have better immediate access to your favorite 2 or 3-ply (if you're rockin' one ply, say nothing. Certain things we just don't discuss) but you are in control of your destiny as to the number of sheets. 
  2. The tear is easily done one handed with a deft wrist flip or, in certain cases, with the clever applying of an elbow or forearm. 
  3. Once you've done your sheet selection, the roll generally stays in place, flap neatly up for the next use.


Flap Down:

  1. Control is more tenuous. 
  2. And access? Do I really have to mention how silly you might look scrabbling your hand against the wall trying to find the flap? Or, worse, the flap is facing the wall -- necessitating a bump to even start rolling. Then, well, do I need to go on? You know what happens. The roll starts going, then you have to stop it as the paper cascades towards the floor. 
  3. The tear is likely to send the roll spinning again. And, again, that frantic slap on the roll to stop the spiral of tissue.

Let's face it, people, there is nothing sadder than seeing that bit of Charmin nestled on the floor. Because you know. You KNOW you're going to have to rip a decent amount away and discard it before you'll even consider using more sheets. It's just...indecent.

You may never have considered this. Or you may be a lifetime over-flapper. Either way, I hope this little explanation has helped you find your toilet paper Feng Shui and relationship bliss.

Flap on!

Addendum:

Think this debate isn't serious? Check out the Cottonelle Roll Poll. (Thanks @onnabugeisha for the tip!)

Jennifer Love Hewitt Vajazzles?

Jennifer Love Hewitt vajazzles her vajay-jay.

Seriously?

Are you telling me there wasn't a classier, or less 5-year old way to say this?

The spa that does it calls it "cb with a Flair" (cb=Completely Bare). Now, that I like. But...

Vajazzle?

I wish you could see the image of me over here sort of shaking my head and wincing in physical and mental pain.

Think I'm kidding? (Starts at 2:45)



There's got to be a better term for this.

"Wax and shimmer?"

It hurts me, precious.

Maybe this is how they get Rpatz to sparkle in the Twilight movies? >.<

Star Wars Quote Brilliance - Pull up! All pants pull up!

Geo over at NerdSalad may have located one of the most brilliant Star Wars quote/meme/mashups of all time.

Top 278 Star Wars Lines Improved By Replacing A Word With "Pants".

Gems include:

"I find your lack of pants disturbing."
"I think you just can't bear to let a gorgeous guy like me out of your pants."
"Curse my metal pants."

and my fave:

"No I don't think he likes pants at all. No I don't like pants either"

I'm sure there are more that haven't made the list and, while I always get a giggle out of the "in my pants" meme, this one just kills me.

I wonder if this one made the list...

"You came in my pants? You're braver than I thought!"

Sometimes Being a Girl Gamer is Awkward!

I have a rather shameful gaming admission:

My name is Geek Girl Diva and I'm a "keyboard turner".

If you don't know what I'm talking about (and from the conversation I had last night, apparently you and I are in the minority. Everyone knows this stuff ::grin::) let me explain.

I play World of Warcraft. I play in a very good, progression-oriented guild on Moonrunner. We're currently in ICC, have dropped Festergut and we're beating our heads against Rotface, but we got him to 5% and he's gonna get dropped Friday night.

I raid 2 - 3 nights a week and I play every day in one form or another. I have 2 level 80 toons and, if you pay attention to this sort of thing, my main Felynne has a Wow Heroes gear score in the mid to high 2700's.

In other words, by pretty much any WoW player metric, I'm good.

However, unless you count the hours and quarters I dedicated to Phoenix and Tempest as a kid at the local liquor store and my love for pinball (Oh, Pinbot, you beast!), I've spent more time with a keyboard under my fingers than I have with a joystick or controller in them.

So, in the middle of a conversation last night with the guys in my guild, it comes up that I use my left hand for certain spells and my right hand for others during boss fights.

And the question came.

"How do you move?"

Now, if I'd known, I would have lied. Trust me. If I'd had a clue as to the reaction, I'd have blithely said that I use my mouse. Granted, it would have meant that I'd sprung a third hand or that I somehow had massively long fingers, but I would have lied.

But, nooooooooooooooo. No. I told the truth. Because I didn't know. How could I not know? Why didn't someone tell me?

Me: "I use the arrow keys"

If I ever doubted whether the guys in my guild love me, the moments of silence that followed have since washed them away. Because I have a feeling that any other person would have been subject to raucous laughter or mockery (both of which I firmly believe they kept muted, hence, the love).

Once the mics were cracked, I heard the disbelief. I heard the laughter under the words as the questions followed. They were genuinely surprised. I could tell. And it took a while for me to explain, to make them understand that I'd never been mentored. That I learned mostly on my own and that I'd never been taught any differently.

So, here I am -- an outted "keyboard turner" with a world of bad habits and muscle memory I have no clue how to unlearn. Sure, I can be rehabilitated, but imagine the pain I'm going to go through. I've got to forget what I know and learn again.

Now, I know this is tongue in cheek, but I'll tell you something. I did feel silly and I did get defensive. Not because they teased me, but because I know they mean well and that having a better understanding of how to use my hands during the game will actually benefit me.

Still, part of me feels like I didn't know, and should have known -- like I should have had a way to learn, or that the information was out there somewhere and I just missed it.

I really do think some of it has to do with the fact that video games just weren't a part of my upbringing. I never had brothers, or a gaming console as a kid. I didn't have friends I played with. So, it wasn't until I was an adult that I even really came into my own as a gamer.

Is it a female thing? Is it an age thing? Did my parents just not love me enough?

And, how do you learn these things when the normal channels don't present themselves?






Shameful admission #2. I look like this in my dreams ::grin::World of Warcraft Series 6 Forsaken Queen Figure

What Does Steampunk Smell Like? #BPAL Knows.

I have no idea how I missed this, but I'm recitfying it right now and making up for it by telling you guys ;-)

Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab has an entire Steampunk line of perfume oils called the Phoenix Steamworks & Research Facility.

Scents include the title scent PHOENIX STEAMWORKS (Burnished gold and oiled bronze notes with Abramelin incense and sage), THE COIL (Ozone, eucalyptus and mint with purple orchid, passionflower, white ginger, and purple lotus), and THE ROBOTIC SCARAB (Polished metallic notes, glossy leather, frankincense, star anise, and thin lubricating oils)

Additionally, the prints by Julie Dillon are gorgeous. For example, the one below gives extra sensuality and depth to a scent like VIOLET RAY.


You'll have to click through to read the description of this oil, but I'll tell you now, I know I plan to buy myself a bottle. ::purr::

I'm already hoping that they'll come out with some sort of gift set, maybe in a cool gear covered box? (hm? Maaaybe?)

Oh and, before you decide you're not a Steampunk fan, BPAL also has a section for Neil Gaiman, A Picnic In Arkham, and there's the Black Phoenix Trading Post (a personal stomping ground of mine)

There's also an amazing article called "Comes a Steampunk" over at Basenotes that delves into the varying smells of "Steampunkery". Definitely worth a read.

Pardon me while I delve back into my reading...

Sparklepires Sparkle! My Brain, she is broken!

I have to post it. I have to. I...seeee....sparkles!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

See it, bottom right? To take the quote directly from the description of the Twilight New Moon Wave 2 Action Figure Case on Entertainment Earth..

"Edward Cullen (Blue Shirt, No Jacket, Sparkles)"

Twilight New Moon Wave 2 Action Figure Case

What's next? The Emo Edward variant? The "Menstrual Scented Bella variant?"

My eyes!!!!

Gawker Says The Twinternet Is Tweaking Out?

I swear, I really don't mean to keep coming back to this. I feel like Michael Corleone. "Every time I think I'm out, they pull me back IN."

Gawker offered their take on the Vanity Fair Twitter Fail of 2010 and, you guessed, they think the uproar is just a bunch of cranky women being...cranky.
But is it possible the women portrayed want to have it both ways? They agreed to a photo shoot where they appear to be naked under a trench coat. They call themselves "girls"—not women—on their Twitter pages and blogs. It implies that using sexuality and "girliness" for personal and professional gains is fine, as long as it's on their own terms. Grigoriadis is being attacked for not "getting" that these women are SERIOUS REAL WOMEN, but I think her argument is that these women are incredibly serious—about gaining influence and power in a new medium in a way that also takes advantage of their attractiveness (in every sense of the word).
So, ladies, own it! Accept that you have a will to power that is based partly on your ability to exploit your sexuality. And you know what? That's fine. It doesn't undermine your professional achievements.
I asked Vanessa what she thought about the outsized, outraged response her article had generated. She responded: "Twitter is obviously an awesome tool conceptually and in aggregate. But it's gotten a free ride in the media in the past six months, and I was trying to poke a little fun at the quest for power on it, which can be kind of absurd. I didn't expect to be frisked by the Twitter police for it."

Two points and then I'm done. I swear.

1) By posing in that fashion, in a magazine known for provacative artwork, they're suddenly selling their sexuality above all else? If Vanessa Grioriadis had taken the time to highlight the fact that each of these women have brains as well as looks, there would have been less of a backlash.

But she didn't.

She chose comments and tweets that made each of these women look like they gain followers by offering nude pics and a good time.

2) I would bet serious money that if any of the women in this article had known that Ms. Grigoriadi intended to "poke a little fun" at Twitter and their use of the service, they would have declined. Which means, in essence, the author misled these women by asking them serious questions (and they've mentioned they were asked serious questions) and then cherry picked quotes that would fit her angle.

Oh and, y'know what? It's not unusual to say "girl" instead of "woman" on a Twitter profile. If you're going to take the feminist view, then doesn't an empowered female have the right to call herself what she prefers without it somehow reflecting on her empowerment as a female?

Look, I'm going to say it one more time. Quit bitching about the fact that these women are "bitching" and try reading what it is they're angry about. Judge them on their content, not your opinion of the surface.

That's really all any of them are asking for in the first place.

Is Twitter Just Another Popularity Contest?

There's been a lot of talk regarding Twitter the last couple days, and not just on Twitter. ::grin:: If you've been following, you know what I mean. If not, then just go with me on this because it's just a set up and not my main point.

So, what is my point?

I was talking with my friend Jon aka Rev (@revoked) about the last couple of days. I'd been blogging and tweeting more than usual about Twitter itself, which isn't the norm for me (let's face it, I'm not known for "serious" ::grin::) and Rev made a comment about disliking the idea of Twitter being a popularity contest -- something he discussed as part of a recent Borked podcast.

My first reaction was to immediately say "Twitter's not a popularity contest!". But I've always been someone who tries to be respectful of other people's opinions, so I actually said that I could see where he might feel that way and stuck it on background processing as a thought for later.

This morning I finally got the chance to put on the headphones and listen to the podcast for myself.

It's actually a pretty interesting conversation. Rev's got his take. Jay (@tesson), Dave (@cdeagle) and Daisy (@DaisyCor3) have their own. I'll admit they're friends, but I also think they're pretty sharp.

Here's the link. Conversation starts at approx 41 minutes in.

I'd be interested to know your thoughts as well.

Less Rant, More Rationale. My Letter To The Vanity Fair Editor.

I know I had a good rant yesterday about a certain Vanity Fair article, but I also wrote a letter to the editor. Since I know my ranty side can be a bit...much? -- I thought I might try a more rational approach. Here's what I sent.


It's easy to look at the anger, snark and hurt feelings that were more than apparent across Twitter and the blogosphere yesterday as some sort of Twitter geek defense mechanism.

But if you look at it more closely, what you'll see is a missed opportunity.

Vanity Fair posted that article online in addition to including it in the print edition. In doing so, I'm sure the editors hoped it would reach and build their Twitter followers and the VF reader base as well, both online and in print.

After all, print media is changing and an online presence has gone from being "hip" to a must in order to expand the brand.

I'm even willing to bet the goal was to reach out through the 6 women in the article, and their collective brands and marketing efforts, to their audiences. The numbers are mentioned in the article - right in the beginning -- 6 women who, collectively, have over 5 million followers.

5 million followers.

Any person, group, leader, with 5 million people paying attention to what they have to say would be considered a force to be reckoned with in the "real world".

So, here's what I don't understand...

Instead of taking the opportunity to highlight the accomplishments of each of these women, and how Twitter factors in, pretty much guaranteeing a positive buzz for Vanity Fair Magazine, the author chose to write an article that trivialized the accomplishments of each of these women and the value of Twitter in general.

Which means that, instead of having 5 million people saying good things about Vanity Fair Magazine and the VF brand in general, you have 5 million people discussing about how Vanity Fair screwed up and just "doesn't get it".

Here's where you don't understand Twitter -- and it's what I consider the real missed opportunity.

Each of those 5 million people has followers. Each of those people might comment and, in doing so, spread the word to those who follow them. To quote an old commercial. "They'll tell two friends, and they'll tell two friends, and so on and so on..."

And each of them is going to reinforce a negative instead of a positive. Which, I'm sure, was not the intention.

I do have a suggestion, though, and I hope you'll consider it. Because I know something else about Twitter that you don't.

Twitter users are forgiving and will, if you give them a chance, use their powers for good.

Find another angle?

I'm asking in all sincerity. Take this experience, write about it, get someone who understands Twitter to write it (maybe even one of the women in the article?) and give Twitter another, deeper look?

5 million people.

The exponential possibilities are endless.

Thanks for reading,

Tweethearts? Oh Vanity Fair! You Slay Me!

I'm not trying to come off like some rant crazed wench or anything, but after seeing this article in Vanity Fair, and this brilliant response on CNET, I just...oh, you know...

Dear Ms. Grigoriadis,

I think it's great that you took the time to write about some of the top female Twitterers (Tweethearts? Srsly?) and looked to offer some insight into how their celebrity (twilebrity? WTF?) has come about.

Except you didn't do that.

You gave me eye candy, cutesy words that include "tw" (twagic, if you ask me) and manage to more than amply deride these women's efforts even while writing about them.

Example:
Each day, these women speed easily across the Twitformation Superhighway on their iPhones and laptops, leaving droppings in their wake: “getting highlights before class,” “I hrd u had fun!,” “Wah, missing my twittr time!”
Between your choice of tweets to use and your use of the word "droppings?", do I really need to wonder what you really think? Y'know, just because people on Twitter read and write in 140 characters or less, we do understand grander concepts like subliminal meaning and sarcasm. Like, fr srs we do! omgwftbbq!
"But when it comes to listening, well, that’s where these twilebrities shine. It so happens that they are nice girls—the Internet’s equivalent of a telephone chat line staffed by a bunch of cheerleaders—and it’s all free. Any tweep who wants to talk to them will likely get a reply to his tweets (“u r so funny!”). They may also re-tweet for you (that means referencing one of your droppings on their Twitter feed)"
That's where they shine? They shine because they're girls on a chat line? So, you're likening women who have built followings in the millions -- who work daily to network and empower others, who have built their own businesses, produced their own webcontent and who work tirelessly towards humanitarian efforts -- to those "pick up the phone" babes I can see on my late night Fox affiliate and talk to for $2.99 a minute?

While I'm at it, allow me to include the Twitter names of the ladies you write about, since you FAILED to do so. This way, people can check them out if they so choose.

@DigitalRoyalty - Amy Jo Martin
@AdventureGirl - Stefanie Michaels
@JuliaRoy - Julia Roy
@FeliciaDay - Felicia Day
@PRSarahEvans - Sarah Evans
@Pop17 - Sarah Austin

I'm sorry, but I think you totally missed the point of what each and every one of these women is doing and, if I didn't know better, I'd think you wrote the entire article as a "subtle" way to get the VF Twitter address out there.

So, let me help.

@vanityfairmag

But, you may want to rethink that. Beause something tells me you may become more familiar with just how well liked, respected and popular each of these women are on Twitter once you start seeing the @replies.

(For you non-twitter types, that's not "twiplies" or anything. It's replies. Like we say in meatspace as well)

Oh and, are you on Twitter, Ms. Grigoriadis?

#justsayin

Addition at at 4:17 pm:

A few more responses to the VF article. Because they need to be posted. ::grin::

@mediate - Hot For Twitter! Vanity Fair’s “Twilebrities” Have Sexy Legs and @kiala over at @GeekWeekOnline Why Does Vanity Fair Hate The Women Of Twitter?

Oh and, turns out Ms. Grigoriadis is on Twitter. :;grin:: With protected tweets!

Anything You Can Do, Geeks Can Do Better?

Ask me if I believe in fate. I'm gonna say yes. Because I was beating my had against the desk in that "I wanna write, but don't know what to write about" frustration when I saw this...



...and I got to thinking. (For those of you itching to ask me if it hurt, consider yourself thwapped)

Anyway....

It's an interesting comment and one I know lots of geeky folks would immediately second.

However, while I'll admit I'm all for geek pride, I'm not sure I agree. Personally, I thought of a few things I'm definitely not better at and don't try harder to be better at. (Basketball being just the tip of that proverbial iceberg.)

So, what do you think? Are geeks better at everything? Do they try harder?

Or are there things geeks can't do?

#geekconfessions I haven't Seen Dexter or Doctor Who.

Before you close the browser window, lemme 'splain...

It's not that I'm not interested in both shows. In fact, quite the opposite. My life gets a bit hectic and the TiVo gets backed up, so there are times I'll avoid starting to watch certain shows because I know I won't have the time to devote the attention they deserve.

Of course, in certain cases, I don't get caught up in time and then I have multiple seasons to catch up on and I have to try and stay spoiler free in the process ::headdesk::

Good news? I've managed to stay almost completely spoiler free on both shows.

Bad news? I now have multiple seasons to catch up on either one, so I can only pick one for now.

So, help me out here.

Which one first and why?



p.s. my thanks to @geeksdreamgirl for the #geekconfessions hashtag. It gives me a nice neat way to do this and clear my conscience.
