The End - 2000 to 2009

Reign of Distraction


Contains Music

This was a last minute video done for my Film History and Theory class. It was extra credit (Which I needed!). All the footage was recorded in a total time of about 3 hours. Editing the video took about another 4 hours. God willing, the professor will like it!

For all those Warcraft fans out there, you’ll like this!

      Masha’Allah … I thought it was really good :)
      Although … totally unrealistic! 😛 Just kidding…

      I think mmorpgs are much worse since they depend on hours upon hours of repetitive tasks. Very unrealistic for an addict who is failing to get a 4.0 gpa the next semester. People don’t become addicted to these things unless they have underlying problems. He didn’t fail classes because he had bad time management, he either lived off the “don’t try, don’t fail” motto or didn’t care about school. I know I read too much into it, good video though for the time it took to produce.

      haha, thats awesome.

      bro, i used to have the same problem. I tried the whole time management thing but my nafs always got the best of me.

      My advise, break your warcraft disc.
      I did it and it worked wonders :)

      a word of caution, you WILL go thru a couple months of depression from the withdrawal.

      but alhamdulilah, the end justifies the means.

      just my 2 cents :)

      masalam.

      The story is fake! Although it could be real.

      @ahmed:
      Guild Wars? You must be crazy! lol If I wanted subpar graphics and serious lag I’d play WOW on a dial up modem :)

      @Paradise One: Oh no! you didnt have to break the disc. I admit I went through my WoW addiction, but mostly when I was unemployed. Now I only play a couple times a week, though now as I am finally approaching 70, I’ve hopped up my play. Gotta love those MMPORG’s.

      @MR:
      Cool Video. I love how in 2010 your still in freshman classes.

      Masalaam

      you just show my FULL life on video in 2002…ROC was crazy addicting. I did horrible in school because of it. When TFT came out…it wasn’t as bad as before, but was still bad..I sold the game later and bought Fiqh ad Dawah by Muhammad alShareef w/ the money earned.

      Just recently (About 3 months ago), I accidentally played it at a friend’s house and HAD to by the game again, which I did. AlHamdulillah though, even after buying it again, I haven’t played the game for over a month.

      And in regards to BNET gaming…forgive me for my enthusiasm and game talk…

      forget custom (WOW and DOTA are wack)…..ladder ALL the way..orcs…Level 25 Shaman here, son!!! thats what I’m talking about!!! FS to grunts w/ casters to tauren..second hero SH…Tier 3 in 15 min!

      Those scenes with the eyes moving left and right while watching the screen reminded me of Requiem for A Dream… sick movie…
