We often utter a small sigh of nostalgia as an expansion leaves us. Don't get me wrong. I am very excited to see a new world and I can't wait to play Cataclysm. But I have fond memories of my years in Azeroth. I sometimes look back on the way things "used to be" and miss old, familiar faces.

I've covered Yesterday's News by Slashdance before, but as I sit here wondering what the future will be like, I am reminded of the sad story of the dwarf who makes the summoning stones. The summoning stone was once hailed as an innovation that saved immense time and trouble. Now? They're barely used. This is a fantastic story, and it all sums up how I feel looking forward to Cataclysm. The ability to capture that kind of complex emotion is part of the brilliance of Yesterday's News, and I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I did.
