I have been sitting here thinking.
Ok, quit laughing, I was really thinking, not just watching the arms on the clock move ever so slowly towards quitting time.
As I was saying I was thinking. Thinking about all the raids I have been on, all the instances I have run. Oddly I ended up thinking about how some television shows have characters you could almost see finding in a random pug some day. Not the actors that play them, but the characters they portray.
For instance, just to look at Gilligan’s island I see a few things.
- The Professor would have Gnomish Engineering as his profession. The man could make a radio out of two coconuts and an empty soup can, yet half his inventions went horribly, yet hillaroiusly wrong. (hold up a second guys, I want to try something.)
- Gilligan would play a hunter, and play it badly. Things would just seem to go wrong around him, for no apparent reason. (Hey skipper I fell through a hole in the world, again!)
- The Skipper would be a bear tank and raid leader, you can almost see him shaking hit hat at his monitor as he herds the cats. (Dammit Gilligan, that’s a 50 dkp minus! blue square is ice trap not snake trap!)
Skip forward a few decades to the show House. Can you not see House playing a horribly sarcastic Priest? One that mocks you while he heals you? I certainly can. Hell, I can see him playing a warlock and loving it.
How about Lost? Can’t you just picture Hurley nuking things as a boomkin and loving every minute of it? Or Kate running a rogue? How about Locke as a death knight?
Perhaps I am just seeing things, but I think some of these folks would be fun (or at least entertaining) to run with.
Either that or I finally just lost my marbles watching the clock.
