The Beast Appears
Recently, I was tagged to participate in Gnomey’s meme regarding screenshots. I was surprised at first that anyone would tag me, since my greatest weakness is my reliance on text over images. If you count the number of posts and the number of screen shots I’ve used, you’d probably find that I’m at on average 1 screenshot for every 75 posts.
Still, I appreciate being thought of (and thanks to Saga for that). Unfortunately, though, I’m nowhere near as organized in my screenshot endeavors as the meme would assume. Like many before me, I cannot produce the sixth screenshot in the sixth folder, as I have only the one folder. What I’ve done, then, is provide several screenshots.
The True Sixth
The first is the actual sixth in my folder. Entitled “The Day Deathwing Came Finale,” it was a shot I took to send to Rio (whoops, brain error there at first!) at his excellent Postcards from Azeroth site. He eventually used a different ones from the series: “Martek the Exiled” and “Lucien Tosselwrench.”
I find this a satisfying find for two reasons. One, it depicts a climatic end to one of the funniest and most enjoyable quest lines in all of Azeroth. Two, it has a gigantic gnome in the background, a perfect tribute to the gizmo-obsessed troublemaker that started this all. To you, Gnomey!
The Unvetted Sixth
Still, that was a chosen, processed piece, which I don’t think was the goal of the meme. So next, I chose the sixth unprocessed piece, and image of Stubborn (appropriately) in bird form and simultaneously mounted. Occasionally, I had these things happen, and when it did, I took these kind of humorous pictures. Yes, my UI is all over the place, yes, you really have to squint to see, but I like the picture all the same. A photographer, I’m not.
One More for Fun
Honestly, I just like this one. The only purpose for putting it here is to share it. Yes, my original DK’s name was SkulleryMade… I’m ingenious, I know.
So, my duty is fulfilled. Like many recent participants, I don’t have a clue who hasn’t been tagged, and frankly I just don’t really know that many people yet. This tentacle of the meme stops with me.
