I feel like I've been living under a rock lately, lol. I've been getting into instrumental prog bands heavily this year and I somehow missed discovering the band, i built the sky.

I found out about them because they're endorsed by Kiesel guitars ofc Instagram friends, etc. recommended me check em' out. Kiesel, being the maker of my 7-string headless guitar. :]

Anyway, here's one of their most popular songs, "Intortus"

I like all their songs in general. All song titles of a reference to types of clouds with suffix ending in "us."

I'm in the endgame area of Ys VIII at 50 hours in. Feels good to beat the first Ys game I'll have played all the way through in a while, lol!

I tried this bow last year, and it was too heavy for me back then, but now I can use it pretty easily.
Cool and congrats. What's the poundage on your new bow? My recurve has a 22 poundage/pullback.

I'll check out that song, Dincrest. I liked Portnoy back in his Dream Theater days.

Awesome song to close out the summer as we turn the corner to fall. Extra points for video creativity

I'm about five~seven hours in Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA (PS4). Somewhere near the end of chapter two, I believe. So far, it's been fun getting back into the series. I get a little lost with the dungeons maps sometimes and knowing where to climb, what obstacle to knock down or get assistance on (fingers crossing that I have enough peeps to get that rolling).

Thanks, Dincrest! Yeah, I got back into progressive metal this year and have been finding a ton of cool talented young acts. Most of them are instrumental. Like:

- Intervals
- Chon
- Sithu Aye
- Polyphia
- Modern Day Babylon
- Animals As Leaders
- Clear Skies
- Scale the Summit
- Tetrafusion
and
- Arch Echo


I started back up the guitar after a near eighteen-year hiatus, and love every minute of it. I didn't have the attention span at 17~18 to sit down for an hour or two, practice, study music theory, scales, chords as I do now. Back then it was all about power chords and nothing else, lol. I'm having a custom 7 string made locally that's going to be out of this world. Sooooo stoked. I'll post here when it's ready. ^_^

Challenges are good. If this 1:1 training is as you say, you'll grow from the experience for sure. Knowledge is knowledge, my brotha!

It's been too long since I've shared some YouTube videos. ^_^

Oddly satisfying to watch. Almost sounds like a deep fryer when the slime goes through the machine.

Haha, you guys are just as funny as I remember! :)

@Tomara, I haven't been as disciplined at archery these last few months. I have a landscaper that keeps finding a ton of rattlesnakes in the yard above my driveway where I always had space and time to practice. =\. Maybe it's past time I invest in some rattlesnake boots to continue my archery hobby, lol.

These guys don't look half bad:

What's up, everyone? I don't know if some of you remember me... I used to post more often when I played video games regularly. I took a break from most of the last year to this year to finish college. I'm currently working on my last prerequisite so I can apply for grad school.

When I wasn't studying, I practiced archery and the electric and acoustic guitar. I recently bought a Zelda and Chrono Cross tablature books, so it has been fun learning some of my favorite video game songs on the fretboard when not practicing scales and chords.

I'm in a lull in my academia as a result of graduating this summer, so I'm catching up some games I missed out. Namely, The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II (Vita), FFXV, and most recently Fire Emblem Echoes 3DS and Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana that just came out for PS4.

Hope all is well!

*Edit* I've tried a chin beard, yet keep trimming it back to a stubble because I don't like seeing the white/gray hairs coming in my mid-30s range each time it grows out. ;P

Have you checked out BlueApron or GreenChef, Artimicia?

My dad has been doing that for a month and loves it. Everything comes in the box. Perishables last a few days so the ingredients are always fresh when they arrive. The food comes with a recipe that has pictures and directions under each step that are easy to follow. The end result? Getting restaurant quality food for a decent price IMO.

If I'm in a bind, I can always throw an omelet together with ingredients and spices I find in the kitchen or I'll make a sandwich melt or quesadilla. My go-to recipe though is heating up some sausage in a pot for a few minutes, transfer that over to the grill. Meanwhile, I cook up some pasta and sauce to which I add my own spices to the sauce. Badda bing badda boom.

Not spam, but anime/manga related. Mods feel free to move to General Discussions if you wish. Just excited to see such a huge store from the pictures. It would be fun to browse through and find a gem.

Every Gundam fan's dream. An awesome Gundam store loaded with Gundam swag. Too bad it's an expensive flight for me from the U.S. to visit this gem.

From http://kotaku.com/a-timeline-of-unsung-story-one-of-the-biggest-kickstar-1797466457:

Scott tells Unsung Story backers that the company has not received any of the Kickstarter money. He also says that he did not pay “any significant amount” to Playdek. “We felt it was better for all involved if Playdek no longer had any attachment,” he says.

“Lastly, we want to respond to those of you that have reached out asking for refunds,” Scott says. “I can’t know the sheer amount of frustration you have endured. We are here to help, but we aren’t in a position to do that right now. Please know that we are starting from scratch without the money you actually invested, so all of our funding needs to go into the game and delivering this Kickstarter. If we start giving refunds right now, it will simply hurt everyone who backed the project and limit our ability to finish.”

It remains unclear what Playdek and Joel Goodman did with the $660,126 they raised on Kickstarter.


Me thinks they went to Vegas and played Blackjack, Texam Holdem' and Slot machines. Gave all winnings back to the house. :P

Wow... I had almost completely forgotten about this game. Lol at the list of games Little Orbit has developed:

As a reminder, some of Little Orbit’s most recent games include Kung Fu Panda: Showdown of Legendary Legends, Monster High: New Ghoul in School, Barbie and Her Sisters: Puppy Rescue, and Adventure Time: Finn and Jake Investigations.

*edit* ...Double lol that Little Orbit has to start from scratch with just the designs from Matsuno. ¯_(ツ)_/¯
