Shared Topic: – Australia day transmog

So, yes, another lame topic from me for blog Azeroth – but I swear this is what gave me the idea for the Mog the world in 80 days idea!  You have to remember guys, I came back after 12 months and BA seemed to have stopped doing shared topics, so I was really just trying to think of quick ideas that others would add to.

Please add some more topics to the mix, so we can start moving dates around and having blogs other than mine being thrown in the deep end :p

I created this outfit for both the Shared Topic and the Mog the World comp, I wanted to looking like the sailors who would have descended on this land – including the ship!! Thank god for Stormwind Harbour :p

Australia

Australia

I am wearing the Bloodsail outfit basically, but am disappointed to realise you can’t actually transmog it.  I have to find other items that look similar, because I actually really like this transmog overall, so I shall hunt down the Bucaneers cloths soon – unless I can make them…hrmm….must investigate tonight.

On a more serious note – I know there is a lot of argument for and against national days that involve the slaughter of the indigenous population, however I sit on the fence because whilst I am against the slaughter that occurred in some cases hundreds of years ago – I am still a patriot and love my country.  Every country has faults, and a history – most countries have been involved in war – including killing innocent people doing what they are ordered to do.  Human society is not one built on love and respect and happy feelings, it is built upon fear, control and domination.

To use Stargate as a reference – we are not the Nox, or even the Asgard and even with our arrogance as a species; the Tollan are even more aware of their issues and had better control.  Yes, TV is written and this is real life, but they set a better example of what we should be trying to achieve within our tiny corner of the universe.  I don’t doubt there are other intelligent species out there, but if like the Asgard, they could watch us – I would stay hidden as well.

How does my tangent even relate? I love my country because it is where I was born, where I grew up, where my friends live, where I have a house, warmth, work, food and (sometimes) safety.  Australia may have done horrible things 200 years ago, but I have only been alive for 34…I have seen much worse in other parts of the world in the last 10 years compared to my 34 years in this country.

    So true, every country has faults and there is nothing wrong with being patriotic and love your country :) It makes me happy read about it, because I love my country, Norway, and I’m proud to be a Norwegian after all our country has been through if you look back at history.
    I just found out a few days ago that I got relatives in Australia, so I might actually visit them some day and then I’m going to learn more about Australia :D

      Syrco that is so amazing that you have Aussie relatives, we are definitely worth visiting here – it is a very beautifucl country by all reports…although..Norway is like my dream destination – maybe we should swap!! ehehhe

        Why is that? I asked my relatives in Australia and they said they have never seen snow and they’ve always wanted to see Norway :P I’m so going to take them skiing and ice skating! I can’t wait to visit Australia, I’m so sick of this cold weather :P But it won’t be for a few years, have to save up money, not cheap to travel that far :P

    You know, that’s a great idea for a transmog. We had Captain Cook wallpaper in the bathroom growing up :P

      That wallpaper could either have been very cool or really racist?? Some wallpapers back in the 70′s were so much fun and quirky…If it wasn’t so horrible to remove and if my hubby could handle my horrific taste…I would love to wallpaper with some crazy stuff!!

        From what I remember it was just his portrait with coordinates and a date – more informational than anything. I remember having flowers on my wallpaper while my brothers had Star Wars.
