Gilneas Cometh

"My how things have changed, my friend.
The great kings have fallen.
The famed heroes have been forgotten.

And the Grand Alliance squabbles over table scraps.

They have forgotten the strength of humanity.

They have forgotten the viciousness of our spirit.

It is time we remind Azeroth why they once feared man.

Apocalypse Please

My main is a ret pally, and as you may or may not know we received some nice boosts to our class recently. I've just been ret until now because I was tired of wearing pink and lavender healing gear... I wanted to wear red. I wanted to wear black. And I wanted it spikey. But until now, I've never had the pleasure of taking on multiple enemies with ease... AND GRACE. But yeah, so until we get nerfed, I would like to recommend a song to play while you pvp... Apocalypse Please (instrumental) by Muse.

Because I'm not about numbers and stats. Im a machinima maker. When I pvp I want a cinematic, epic feel. So there you have it. Press stop on your linkin park. die. rez. and put this on. thank you.

Made a new movie. Homesick: The Making of a Supervillain. It started out to be just about a gnome who was homesick. I always thought their predicament was horrible. Not to mention, the Alliance goes from one project to the next (Outland, Northrend, etc) without ever helping the gnomes with their homeland. So, the movie was just me thinking how rediclous it was... and the cheery exterior of those little guys must hide some pretty sad stuff. But then, I started thinking about Dr. Doom, for some reason, and realized the gnomes are in a state that's ripe for the rise of supervillains... much like Dr. Doom... with his mixture of science and genius... and MAAAADNESS! Oh well... the ending was supposed to be awesome, but like I said, I didnt realize how full my hard drive was and it was taking a toll on my recording fps, so i just used some static background shots from google with some simple animations. Bah.

But here's a new idea (given wowmodelviewer gets updated since the last patch): GILNEAS! That's right, Gilneas. Much like the Crusade, it has, for some reason, been one of my favorite pieces of lore. I would imagine, that just like Scarlet lore awhile back, I like the lack of information... giving room to dream...

So, imagine Gilneas... one of the strongest of the Human nations coming back. Much like the Crusade, they hate the Alliance, hate the Horde, and hate all non-humans. Except unlike the Crusade, they still hold their kingdom... their royal lineage is intact... they (possibly) have an organized standing army... and they are (possibly) untouched by the plague. Add Worgen to that equation and it equals fun. Much like the Vikings' berserkers, let's say that the Gilneans now maintain regiments of Worgen shocktroops. It's like the Crusade with werewolves. So, um yeah... they finally open their gates to see the world has changed. Their mindset is still stuck in the second war... strong, warring human nations fighting demonic, crazed orcs. Theyd look around and realize they are the bearers of the old way... a banner that men like the Scarlet Crusade could fight under... and that they would bring it old school style... found a New Alliance that was purely Human... uniting the remnants of Stromgarde, Lordaeron, and the sailors of Kul Tiras... and lay waste to the undead and the orcish horde. BUT WITH WEREWOLVES! and damn the dalaraan wizards.
*They're from another time*
*When the kingdoms of men stood strong*
*They remember the old ways.*
*They had lived in isolation*
*Behind the protection of their wall*
*Until now*

How's the pie?

Finished Argent Crusade: Salvation... just my Terminator 4 trailer homage. Some people took it a little too seriously about the mispronunciation of "Tirion"... I think they missed the point, though. In my mind, it's just about letting it take you in and wondering what would happen if... I didn't make it to set of lore-alarms. So enjoy it.

Pump your brakes kid, that man’s a national treasure.

Oh yeah, here's some stuff from "End of War" :

I'm a lead farmer, mother f*cker.

I'll be updating this soon. I'm currently working on three different videos: 2 of which are WoW machinima, and the other is a video for a friend of mine... unrelated to machinima. Unfortunately, the non-machinima one is taking priority right now...

Anyhoo- If you're curious... besides the "End of War" movie, I'm also working on redoing the trailer to Terminator 4. It's going to be called "Argent Crusade: Salvation". Basically, switch out John Connor for Tirion Fordring and Skynet with Scourge... you know what that's called? Genious.

Mr. Warchief Thrall...

So, in my last post I previewed the beginning of my new movie... a re-enactment of Scryer lore. Now, I've got a work-in-progress for the ending that you get to see. YAY! It's sort of like an anti-war rally held in front of the Dark Portal by citizens of the Horde and whatnot. It's also a nod to Regean's Berlin Wall speech. Check it out.

The End of War

So, I'm working on a new movie. I rendered the little intro I have so far just to see how the colors look and whatnot. It's basically Scryer lore. That long quest you do when you first get to Shatt is where they tell you the story. Now you lazy people don't have to read/listen to it, but can WATCH IT! OOoooOOO. Oh yeah, and thank Caruu for finally putting some voice acting to a Gnomechewer movie. PREVIEW THIS BISH!

Yeah, I met Dr. Martin Luther King in 1962 in Memphis, Tennessee.

I’m walkin’ down the street, mindin’ my own business, just walkin’ along, feelin’ good. I walk around a corner. A man walk up, hit me in my chest, right? I fall on the ground, right? And I look up, and it’s Dr. Martin Luther King! I said, ‘Dr. King!’ He said, ‘Whoops, I thought you was somebody else.

Ok. So I finished my movie, My Violent Heart. It ended up turning out a little cooler than I had expected, especially the part where the girl in a polaroid says "we will be there"... it was kind of spooky when I first saw it which is exactly what I had hoped. Anyways, what more can I write about it. Watch it. Now. Bye.

Try holy water, death breath!

So, I finished my movie. And while it's rendering I'll just post some stuffs here. As some of you may or may not know, I had a pally named Coreyhaim, and a friend who named his rogue Coreyfeldman. When we transferred off of our server to Burning Legion I had to rename him because, FOR SOME REASON, I had a high level character on that server already named Coreyhaim. So, I thought "Whatever". And I renamed him "Cohagen" (I was watching Total Recall at the time). So, now my friend and I can't live out the ultimate dream of having an arena team named "The Coreys"! Oh well... my point being... here's some photos of me (Cohagen) and Coreyfeldman (the belf rogue, not the actor) from Comic Con and Awesome Con--

Cohagen, Coreyfeldman, Coreyfeldman's main squeeze and...

Freakin' girl mobs stealing Pikachu from meh.

Sexually threatening vampires trying to gank u?!1
(yes, they were handing out Lost Boys bandanas at Comic Con)

Werewufs too? np.

Put...the candle...back!

Ok, so I'm in the process of working on two movies right now. One is for some guy, and I'm stuck on where to go on the ending for that one... but the other is a personal one. It's called "Violent Heart". It uses a mashup between NIN and Faust, and it's kind of like a Gnomechewer lore version of when the Draenei split off from the rest of the Eredar. This video is like the Eredar singing the song towards the Draenei, somewhat explaining their actions past, present, and future. The lyrics are from NIN's "Violent Heart" and are so totally written for this event.

And of course, all major events in Gnomechewer lore are done through dance and/or song.

Here's some preview shots of what's going on. Hopefully I'll have it done within a day or so:

So I decided to start a blog. Not because I believe in keeping people informed, rather it was JEALOUSY! All the machinima makers have one, WHY NOT ME?! It's like a business card in the corporate world... it legitimizes me. So, I'm thinking I can post work-in-progress teasers like Soosdon... or tidbits about moving into a new apartment like Olibith...

Anyways, just expect to see Gnomechewer stuffs from time to time... if anyone will be reading this. Hello, God? It's me, Gnomechewer.
