I still get asked/commented to repeatedly about how it blows peoples minds that I don't see the blood elf men as embodying some sort of gay stereotype. Not only that, I see them as masculine. What needs to be understood here is the kind of men that my age group grew up drooling over... our '80s sex icons. I see blood elves, I see this:
These were our sex objects. You can't tell me Axl doesn't remind you of a male belf. (Speaking of, never google a current picture of the man. Some things seen cannot be unseen.) Now you understand. Welcome to the '80s.
Seriously, they missed out on the right blood elf dance. It should have been every move in this video instead of the Napoleon Dynamite thing.
Speaking of GNR, remember the epic video for "November Rain"? I went looking for the short story it's based on and found it here. All I can say is... I'm not surprised GNR liked it.
If you don't want to read it, this blog pretty much sums it up.
I'm amused that the story wasn't actually published until 10 years later.
