The Sunday Cop-out, Wherein Dueg is Suspicious

So one thing I enjoy about Sundays is that I like to make these cop-out where I just come up with a loose topic, spend maybe ten to twenty minutes minutes typing on it and then will ask for your opinion.  It’s a good way to kill some of my coffee time in the morning.  I don’t feel obligated to put them up since Sunday is usually a slow day anyways with everyone online playing WoW or off taking care of errands, but I enjoy them.

So yesterday while typing up my Saturday RP I was playing some music off my playlist when Modest Mouse’s Dashboard started playing.  Now this is one of my favoritest of all time and forever songs and I’ve always thought of this song as Dueg’s theme song.  The line “it coulda been, shoulda been worse than you would’ve ever known” just about describes my feelings after a bad pull where somehow we all manage to stay alive (mainly because I’m so awesome).

I immediately went to my Draft folder for WordPress and typed up a quick title (The Sunday Cop-out, Wherein Dueg Sings a Merry Tune) and saved it, as I’m want to do when inspiration for a future post strikes.  So I get up this morning, grab my cup of coffee and whistle my way up the stairs, snuggling in at the Dueg Station and reading through my daily blog posts before posting just like every Sunday.  Then I came across this.  That’s right, WoW Insider is stealing from me.

At least that’s how it would seem and since I don’t feel like doing any detective work, I’m just going to jump to that conclusion.  However, it’s not good enough for me to just blister them with this obviously scathing post about their thievery, oh no.  I will now seek to convict them in the court of public opinion as well.  Therefore, gentle jerkwads, I will now put up a poll and you can let me know as well whether or not you think WoW Insider has truly committed a crime here or not.  Vote or die!

Lemme know what you think, and if you’d still like to let me know what you think your char’s theme song is, go for it in the comments.  We’ll show stinky ol’ WoW Insider!

    I don’t think I’ve ever thought about theme songs before. But, I did enjoy turning on RHCP – Can’t Stop for a while after being inspired by the druid Hafu’s arena video. And no offense to Wow Insider, but your post was far more entertaining to read:D

    I can’t access Blog Azeroth from work anymore, but I did remember that I came across a character theme song topic months ago inspired by Blog Azeroth.

    Sorry dude! 🙂

    That said, Ambrosyne did a small series of healer friendly dailies and days later WoWInsider commented on another blogger than ran a series shortly after her. I can’t find it, again blocked at work, but it’s tough not to think that someone didn’t steal the idea. Unfortunately it happens! 😦

    Welcome to the party! http://www.blogazeroth.com/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=1040

    We’ll call it ‘fashionably late’ just to be nice 😉

    But yes, WoW Insider is totally stealing ideas though.

    As for my theme song? Apparently I have three:

    This: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z7tpz3NAr6k when I made the character
    This: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MXGAif4dKhs when I started the blog
    and, according to my tankin’ buddy,
    This: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y1H7vZYBeHc

    Though I think that last one sounds like porno music. At least they’re making sure to keep up Savage Roar.

    Wow insider writers often get their inspiration from wow bloggers.. not necessarily saying it did happen at this time, but it wouldnt suprise me. Some bloggers are in fact wow insider writers.. and will grap their ideas from the same places we do.. :p whatever pops up in our Rss.. .
