Another episode of What is Brenda Listening to Right Now? A great sing-along by the Flobots. Thought about it while biking into work this morning :)

Took Larry's advice and tried Wickham Park, but it was too windy and I had to crash the drone on purpose many times to stop it from hitting people. I put the panniers back on my bicycle; the drone fit in there fine (it's not one of those super expensive drones). The city you can see on the horizon sometimes is Hartford, CT. I might try droning in Hartford's Bushnell Park sometime, but that is usually even MORE crowded. Might get some sweet shots of the capital, though.

I like it as a drone that will teach you how to fly a drone. The expensive drones fly themselves :)

DC Wins.
 
DC Superhero Fight Club

Just in case you were starting to think Marvel was the only superhero game in town today, The CW has released a Flash/Arrow promo featuring ... well, EVERYBODY. It's Superhero fight club time in a literal cage match.

http://geekslife.com/dc-cage-match-the-flash-the-arrow-vs-everybody/
I’m not even sure where to start with this. Marvel is not the only company showing off awesome stuff today. The CW has released a promo video for the final episodes of Arrow and The Flash, and it’s a literal cage match with all the heroes and all the villains fighting it out to blow off steam. More of this, ... Read More

Ding 66, and I've left Fiery Pit for awhile to return to Reclamation Rock. Leveling up is going fairly slowly. There's a lot of grinding going on. Almost all the old level 60 content has been bumped up to level 70. This means that we're all doing a lot of work just to get back to doing the content we've done before. I have reminders to go check out Sharandar and Dread Ring again.

I haven't received any gear upgrades. I was fairly well-geared before, but I was hoping for one or two new items on the way up. I haven't seen any blue items drop at all. I've seen lots of green items, but... they all went to leveling up my artifacts. The new item level stuff means that artifacts and all my other gear are no longer headed to the scrap bin. I was worried about that.

Of course, this could all change once I hit 70 and start working on the new gear. As long as it doesn't require grinding dungeons with pickup groups, because that isn't happening. Three or four hours spent to ultimately fail in a dungeon with people dropping out left and right -- that's what pickup groups are like in Neverwinter.

Still unsure what to do with my pets. My purple pets all can level to 35 now, and for just a trivial number of astral diamonds -- merely a million or so -- they can unlock legendary status and a new level cap of 40. Since a 40 pet level is equivalent to an 80 adventurer level, this could end with pets more powerful than their owner. That could be a game-changer for some classes.

If level 40 unlocked a new pet skin, well, I'd be down with that. But for now... I might upgrade Pauli the Powrie, but then, her mega-attack is really slow and usually too late. My Mod 6 pet, the water elemental Aquafan, is powerful, but he's blue, and it would cost 700K AD just to get him to purple before I could then pay 1MM AD for the legendary.

Libre, here, might be my best option, after all.

I'm not sure what's up with that little whirlygig that keeps flying around me. Does everyone get them during this Wonders of Gond event, or is this a new thing because I have a Doohickey equipped? I guess we'll see after tomorrow, once the event ends. I hope it does stick around.

Drone Flight #5, Center Springs Park, near the Manchester downtown. The drone still has issues once it gets too far away. I really like flying the thing, but I could do better. The video resolution is truly terrible. But, cheap drone. Connecticut in Spring.

I guess it was nice of G+ to assemble my drone video fragments into a "worst of" reel. Not the edit I would have made (I would -- and did -- strip out all the crashes and make this https://youtu.be/UQSxd-o-EjE )

Still, there it is. #dronewemust

+Jeff Rimer the music autoawesome uses is the same music in youtubes creator studio, and you can download all the music from YouTube's creator studio. Its all royalty free. - there's actually some decent tracks in there, although most are crap.

Today's installment of "What the heck is Brenda listening to RIGHT NOW?" A bit of older rock with Evanescence. I remember listening to them on long car trips... whenever I hear this song, I'm taken back to empty roads between distant California cities.

I already love Within Temptation! Though quite a lot more symphonic than Evanescence.
