Yeah, I gave you an eclectic list to begin with so I didn't expect everything to mesh for you. Glad to hear you liked that Haken track.

You might also like this track off that EP album:

Oh, and here's one I forgot to add to the list. It's one of the best Soilwork songs I've heard in recent years and has a funny video of an old dude getting down with some hilarious dance moves, hah:

Geebus! About time. Person of Interest final season to air beginning May 3rd. Episodes will air twice a week. Total episode count will be 13.

More info here:

I hope since the season is a half order that the quality will measure up and be climatic leading up to the finale.

I might stream for the site if anyone's interested.

You've got one RPGfan here who would enjoy watching your stream. ^_^

*edit* Read another article on Kotaku about this upcoming release http://kotaku.com/even-square-enix-has-given-up-on-vita-in-the-west-1764736201.

......So for now, it looks like it'll be out on PS4 (and Steam), yet no Vita correct?

*double edit* I wonder how Tomoki Miyoshi measures up in music composition compared to Yasunori Mitsuda. The only title I saw that he worked on before Setsuna was Soul Caliber 5 and Monaco.

Here are some good metal songs I've been digging:

Insomnium - Ephemeral
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5DjmQXtZUx4
Good stuff by Insomnium and I just read that they just booked a few studios to record their next album.
Story: http://metalstorm.net/events/news_comments.php?news_id=28835

Omnium Gatherum - Skyline
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4SIo0VA2lFQ
Headbangn' worthy of In Flames' Clayman' "Only for the Weak" of ol'

Onmyo-Za - 青天の三日月
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fcVSDmJmJfU
Good harmonics between the male and female singer at the chorus.

The Gentle Storm - Heart Of Amsterdam
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2q2Wx5H6wkg
Many instruments, many styles and filmed in historic Amsterdam. Another great project from Arjen Anthony Lucassen.

Wilderun - The Garden of Fire
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v1DOGUgPy7c
Fast drum tracks in this one. Symphonic folk metal

Pyramaze - Fearless
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JU_xvG26Xjk
Good song to get pumped to.

Haken - Crystallised
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zk9Wk96yzBY
19:25 minute song, but so worth it. It's an awesome musical journey.

Heh, I was rocking a Daft Punk look with tux and motorcycle helmet before switching to this look. Here's my character, "emerald" with man's best friend:

Fjords of Scandinavia...

Nice! Me thinks I should catch a plane from the States and attend a prog/death/power metal concert, or two or three while I'm wayfaring through the greenery. ^_^

My idea of my "happy place", Moraine Lake, Alberta, Canada.

Given that I just recently got some nice swag at REI and two pairs of high-end running shoes, I'll probably just save the tax return or re-invest it. I know how boring, but probably the more responsible thing to do. Gosh darn this getting older feels.

- LUIGI NEEDS MORE RESPECT!!!  I'm not saying I would vote, but I would have more respect for any presidential candidate who expressed sympathy for Luigi.

I foresee an opportunity for comedy gold here. Be that, an SNL skit or some creative-type to produce something short and pithy on YouTube. Imagine a disgruntled Luigi, years categorized as second best. For the most part, except Nintendo's Year of Luigi in which ran in March 2013. They could even chime in his infamous Luigi glare from Mario Kart Wii U. Start with Luigi sitting in a low-lit counseling session coming to grips with his past.

What helps me when I've found I've wasted money on a bad game or a bad meal or whatever is I think of something else I feel like I enjoyed enough to have been willing to pay extra for and imagine the money went toward that.

Gratitude. Yes, that's an excellent attitude and reminder. I'm currently grateful for XBCX. I waited years to play but have loved every minute and inch of the open-world exploration. Also, I'm thankful for Fire Emblem Fates. I'm getting my tactical rpg fix there now. :)

Thank god I didn't put any actual money down on this horse (meat and glue). (Changing the title because screw it. Another one bites the dust.)

Thanks for the title change, Aeolus. I needed a good laugh out loud for my $50 that's heading down the drain (unless by a miracle, I get it back).

@Dincrest - It's always troubling to see an uncomfortable tantrum in public. A little self-awareness and self-control can go a long way to resolving this. There are merits to anger, just healthier when it's contained constructively towards problem-solving.

@Daggerstrike - That's awesome man. Hope your venture goes well with that arrangement you had in mind for your backyard.

A wishy-washy update from Playdek yesterday. They resolved some issues with their first creditor, now they're working on their second creditor. If successful, they could be a better financial standing to refund backers who want their financial support back.

@Dincrest - Heh. That's funny. I'd probably want to practice like that legend on YouTube, Lars Andersen https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BEG-ly9tQGk. Although I wouldn't practice running, catching and shooting back arrows as in ancient times because that just sounds crazy dangerous, lol. I think I'll, at least, start with a fast delivery set and release between arrows.

@Marshmallow - Nice man. If I get a recurve bow, I'd eventually like to do a makeshift target setup somewhere safe at home as well. The Samick sage takedown looks like a decent bow to start off with. I think these are very close to the bows we're using in class. The bow they gave me is a 22 poundage but feels like it weights 25. The instructor told me the weight was kinda a wash, so no big deal about the extra 3 lbs.

@Tomara - Right on. I know the prices can be flux, but like most products prices often vary on brand name recognition. I'm aiming for a price range in the middle (pun intended). I've checked out the Hoyt compound bows. They look pretty sick.

*edit* Here's the bow they got me on:

Started up a new hobby: archery. It's a lot of fun. I like the mental and coordination challenges that come with practice. I enrolled into one of those five weeks beginner classes and loving it. We practice at a public outdoor field.

Some of the guys (and gals) that come to this place have expensive recurve bows. Although I was told by someone that some of these advanced archers are sponsored for Olympic training.

Instructors have us starting at 20 meters. I'm thinking when week five rolls around, we'll go for the 40-60 meter targets. (The field can accommodate for 90 meters)

When I'm practicing, I focus on my sight and clear my mind. Strangely therapeutic. Only negative about it is that it doesn't improve my athleticism. I guess I'll have to stick to walking/running for the cardio, heh.
