Really, Blizz? Pretty sure that since your next expansion is introducing the Monk class, that you should have gone with Chuck Norris as a Monk. Also, having Chuck Norris as a spokesman would have been relevant about 6 years ago, but right now I'm just not feeling it. While I do like the "Hi, I'm X and I'm a X" commercials, this is probably my least favorite of those released.
With Thanksgiving less than one week away, the Christmas shopping season is most certainly upon us. Instead of purchasing gifts from a Big Box store, why not consider browsing through Etsy or purchasing a locally made item? Geeky crafters take time and put their heart and soul into their products. To ensure Christmas delivery, you'll want to place your orders as soon as possible. Here are some of my favorite Crafty Geeks. Check out their inventory and place an order for your favorite nerds!

I have not read this series by Suzanne Collins, but it's definitely on my to-read list! The film adaptation of the first book, The Hunger Games, will be released this March and stars Louisville, Kentucky native Jennifer Lawrence (X-Men: First Class, Winters Bone - for which she won an Academy Award) and Josh Hutcherson (The Kids Are Alright, Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant), who is from Union, Kentucky. Check out the trailer after the break!

Valve is the latest in a string of companies to have their information accessed by outside means. On Sunday, November 6, the Steam's forums were attacked, which lead to an in-depth search by investigators. They concluded that a database containing personal informal such as user names and passwords was accessed. Valve founder Gabe Newell released a statement regarding the attack. While there is no evidence of credit card number violations. it is probably wise that everyone with a Steam account go ahead and change their password. I, for one, even changed the associated email address.
I am truly sorry this happened, and I apologize for the inconvenience.
Stay tuned for more information as it develops.

Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim releases this Friday, 11-11-11. To get you through the next few days Youtube user Dan Bull has released an Epic Skyrim Rap. It's got mad flow, dog. For shizzle, my nizzle. In all seriousness, it's a very cleverly constructed rhyme and incorporates a lot of aspects of the game, e.g. the ability to use magic in one hand and wield a weapon in the other. Pretty sweet. Check out the video after the break!

Most folks I know are huge fans of Mel Brooks' "Young Frankenstein." How could you not be? It's amazing! The touring production of the Broadway musical is at the Lexington Opera House this weekend. One of the songs from the production is called "Transylvania Mania." Conveniently enough, Transylvania University, where I am a history major, played the University of Kentucky Wildcats in basketball on Wednesday evening. Shortly before tip-off, faculty, staff and students from Transy joined with dancers from the Town and Village School of Dance of Paris, Ky. to perform "Transylvania Mania" flash mob style.
