Through Your Interface — Favorite Line of Poetry/Lyric

Day Six of World of Saz 15 Days of Screen Shots challenge is about your favorite Line of Poetry/Lyric. My apologies, I seem to be saying this a lot, I’m kind of cheating. No lyrics or poetry jumped out when I read this one but a quote from my all-time favorite classic did immediately.

“I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.”

- Roy, The Movie Blade Runner

When BC came out my first character, my hunter, was somewhere around the low fifties level. I couldn’t go to Outland yet but nevertheless I bought and installed it, I guess as an incentive. I was so excited and this was back in the time I talked to my husband about all things WoW rather than you.

When the moment came and I was going to get my first glimpse of Outland he wanted to see what all the fuss had been about. Now I have no idea what this is about but whenever he walks by the computer when I’m in WoW he usually asks, “Hey, look up, what’s the sky look like there?” and this is what I saw.

So I have my non-gaming husband to thank for one of my best WoW moments, I felt like Roy, it was like seeing the attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion.

P.S. Thanks to smarty-pants Druid with insta-flight form for getting the shot. I don’t even think I knew how to take a screen shot back then.

  1. Being a sci-fi geek – that sky has to be one of my favorites in game, along with the huge moon visible in Nagrand. :)

    Video of the Gnomes vs Tauren event up on my blog :)

  2. You’re not cheating at all! I suppose I should have really worded it as favorite lyric/poetry line/quote, but had a brain flub. It’s meant to be a touch ambiguous, and I think you *might* have given me an idea/reminder as to what I want this one to be once I get to it.

    I’ve always been fascinated with WoW’s skybox. I only have half a million screen shots featuring the various skies laying around somewhere. So dang pretty! Therefor I greatly enjoy your choice of screen shot : )

    • Thanks Saz!

      That would be great if it helped as a reminder, I’m stuck on Day 7 which I thought I had covered but to my utter horror I’ve found that I don’t which probably means my next post will be a rant about my stupid, disorganized self!
