Favorite New TV Series: Heroes (NBC)

It's official. NBC's new series Heroes is not good...it's great! Yours truly, the died in the wool comics fan, was crossing his fingers in anticipation and fortunately the results turned out to be excellent. Lots of people are asking the question, "Is Heroes the next Lost?" That's not the comparison I'm making. I'm comparing Heroes to one of my favorite graphic novels of all time. Yes, Watchmen. I can't help but wonder what Alan Moore thinks of Heroes. I think he'd be impressed because there are similarities between the two.

Say Hello to Starcatt

Here we see my newest World of Warcraft character, the Night Elf Hunter Starcatt and her faithful companion pet lion Humar taking a rest on the hill overlooking the Whelgar Excavation in the Wetlands. I started this character during the summer and after leveling a Warrior (Devildog) and a Druid (Neq) to 60, my goal is to level Starcatt to 60 before the WoW expansion, The Burning Crusade, comes out at the end of 2006. Hunters are really good characters to solo with because, as Blizzard says, their only true friends are their weapons and their pets. All of these characters are on the Khadgar server.
