And it's our pleasure. Nothing could make the work we put into it more worthwhile than you finding new music :D Which ones did you end up checking out!

I did listen to other recommended OSTs although they didn't work for me, but new ones that sounded interesting were FFXI Forever, Chrono Trigger Symphony (although I picked up the first one, not the current third one) and the prescription for sleep CD :)

Haven't had a chance to listen yet though. I do a lot of listening while at work to block out the random chatter and phone calls in the cubical farm :)

Favourites: Child of Light, FF14, Lightning Returns, Danganrompa 2

Honorable mention (first heard it in 2014, came out in 2007): Anata wo Yurusanai - this was a detective game released only in Japan. I only tried this soundtrack out because Nobuo Uematsu was the lead composer. Jazz musicians round out the music team. The result is a very striking jazz compilation that reminds one of Uematsu's works as well. Note that reviews seem to be split between enjoying the work and finding it a bit boring. I would imagine if having an album with more mellow jazzy tunes vs one with more ups and downs appeals to you, you might give it a try. It is available on iTunes although spelled as "anatawo yurusanai" here.

Ps thanks for this feature - I ended up downloading 3 new albums to try!

I don't have trouble with book font sizes, but it always drove me batty when the text is too close to the inside of the book, making breaking the spine and cracking it open and flat in order to read what's squished in there.

Love my Kindle. Plus I can carry about 300+ books and counting....

Did you win money or just runny eggs?

I am a little worried about listener fatigue - 18 minute long song???

As far as reading "bad" literature goes, some folks just do it to see what all the fuss is about or do it because they made fun of it and were told "don't knock it till you're read/seen it!"  And they either have massive MST3K fuel or closet-ly like it but spew hatred for it. 

I have no patience for bad books, but I am one of the guys on RPGFan's "cleanup crew" who reviews bad games and/or games no one else wants because I have a morbid fascination with bad gaming.  I like to see if it's as bad as everyone says it is.  I did this years ago with SaGa Frontier- I rented it to see how bad it was since everyone talked about it sucking... I loved it!  I thought the game was fantastic. 

Put me in the "wanted to see what the fuss was about" club. I read a chapter, and was repelled by the bad writing. Did not buy. Life's too short for crappy writing.

Oh god don't bring up Fifty Shades >_<
Not just the subject matter but that has to be one of the worst written books I've ever tried to read that wasn't self published.

Some of my coworkers are nose pickers :(

Granted I'm a compulsive joint cracker (note: Some of this is intentional, some of it, uh, I have some joints that just crack constantly on their own) and keep pulling my hair out so wevz.

wrt dreams, my dreams are also screwed up lately and  this has been ongoing for awhile now and it's making me not want to sleep.

It's like, sleep is not /resting/ but just six hours of weird visions followed by getting up and standing in the cold for like ten minutes until a bus comes and I pass out again.

--- edit ---

Drinkin' low sodium V8 hashtag tastes like I don't give a shit about anything anymore.

Hubby freaks out my mother at dinner by popping his knuckles, toes and knees. It's a good thing the parents like him.
My computer keyboard at work started out white, but is now some shade of grey. Very nice to know that's all me.....

Totally worth the brag.  Been playing for all of 5 minutes and had to come and share.


I'm a happy girlie (and, well, the owner of 3 of these systems now, but given the mileage I've gotten out of it, I'm not too blue --- plus two of them were gifts, so I don't have crazy collector status yet)

Damn you, now I am tempted. I always play my 3DS with no 3D because the supposed 3d is blurry and hurts my eyes.

Filed taxes. Got like 2k back. As always. I have no idea how this voodoo math works.

Thank your choice of gods that we live in age which has computer software available to help us with that "voodoo math" (which it indeed truly is). I fucked up my taxes last year, and had to manually fill out and mail in a 1040X. All that crazy math, and checking which deductions apply and blah blah blah. Gained new found respect for the way our pappies had to do it. I remember mine sittin at the dining room table for hours with all that paperwork. No thanks. I want my taxes done by a soulless machine, and my pizza ordered through a Sexbox, dammit.

That's why I married an accountant 😉
H&R block will do them too, but they don't look for all the extra deductions you can claim. Although not a tax accountant, my husband found enough that he doubled my refund.

You get "educated" to not waste your money in the lottery?

I moved in with my girlfriend this past weekend. She has a 12 year old son, so it's cool because he and I get along and play games and stuff. I started playing Magic The Gathering again so I could teach him. I forgot how addictive this game can be.

They know to fear the sneaky blue Mage around here.... <_<
