I  was also hoping for cooler music from the last area. It fits the game and context just fine, but considering how good the rest of the soundtrack has been, I was expecting better. Oh, well.
Overall, the dungeons have been amazing in this game. Probably the best collection of dungeons in a Zelda game since...ever? They've just been so brilliantly designed!
This game gives me so much hope after the mediocre-fest that was Skyward Sword.

Finally getting near the end of Zelda: ALBW. I'm in Lorule Castle, which has been surprisingly easy so far. Maybe it's not the final dungeon? I guess I'll see pretty soon.

I've barely been around here lately. It's spring, and in my world that means I'm uber busy in ever facet of my life. Work, home, garden, volunteering. I enjoy it, but MAN do I just want a couple days with NOTHING to do at all. Not for the foreseeable future, though.

My wife's birthday is Sunday, and I haven't bought her anything yet. I have absolutely no clue what to get her! It's so frustrating. She doesn't really need or want anything. But she loves presents. so there's no way I can do nothing. I'm thinking a box full of cash. Seriously. I don't know what else to do. I'm having my Aunts bakery make her an awesome cake, and we're doing an all day Art in the Park/museum thing on Sunday.
Then there's friggin' Mother's Day! Man, I hate this time of year.

Because I watch Game of Thrones with my wife, who is always tired and never feels like watching it, we only just watched episode 6 of season 3. We even have HBO now, and still can't watch it as it airs. I should have just watched it on my own. hpmh.

I'm totally into Breaking Bad now. In the middle of season 2. Jessie is an idiot. And I want to strangle Walter for continually piling on the lies.

Enjoying watching Cosmos every week as well.

Great, as if I didn't have enough of a backlog here comes this awesome gem of a game, oh well
Same here. Lots of great games to play, and no time to play them. I plan on getting this as soon as I finish Zelda, ALBW. Looks fantastic.

From what I understand, a lot of those old tales were never children's stories at all, back in their origins.  They were just general folklore.  Somehow those "fairy tales" got watered down into becoming children's stories over time.  Examples in this tangent include The Little Mermaid, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Snow White.

Anyway, my drummer encouraged us (in the band) to actually watch Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.  I thought "there is no way in hell I'll watch this flick.  It looks and sounds so f'n stupid!"  But knowing that my drummer would probably pester me till I saw it (he himself had the same "man this is gonna be stupid" kneejerk), I watched it.  It was actually an enjoyable flick.  I didn't love it, but I didn't hate it either and just went along for the ride.  The premise is hokey, but the film heartily commits to it.  The action scenes are good and the history parts of this "alternative history" were mostly in-tact (though some liberties were obviously taken.)  The part I remember most was how the slavery advocates did not want Lincoln to free the slaves, because
Code:
the slavers were vampires and were keeping slaves as food so that they could feed secretly and the community wouldn't know they're vampires.  So if the slaves were free, then the vampires would not be kept in check.
 Which got me to thinking about stuff like the Donner Party and the darker aspects of American history that we're NOT taught.  

My wife and I tried to watch that movie. I figured it might be schlocky fun. Too bad the story was awful, and the movie just ended up boring and no fun at all. I remember feeling like there was no good explanation for anything that was happening. I didn't even bother to write a review, and I rarely do that.

The only part of Applause I like is the chorus, and that's because the music sounds like old school chip tunes.

I tried out this Dope song, which I hadn't heard yet. The piano is ok, but I don't like her singing. I can see why people would like it, though. It's less generic dance than a lot of what I've heard.

I have no particular bone to pick with Gaga. I'm hard on ALL music. Bad or repetitive lyrics drive me insane, and are a big reason why I listen to mostly instrumental tunes.

I have yet to hear a single Gaga song I like. Maybe one, but I forget the name. She's just too generic and repetitive for me(at least her radio stuff is). I imagine it works well in dance clubs and such.

6 hour day at work today due to "good" Friday. We are one of the few landscape companies that gives our Mexican workers the day off because they're big on the religion thing. Or at least my uber Christian boss thinks they are. I have a feeling most of them will use the day to do side work and such.

Looks like a stellar weather weekend coming up. Anxious to get out of here.

Finally finished the Ice Ruins in ALBW with a little Gamefaqs help. I missed lighting one stupid torch.
I just have the fire dungeon left, and then whatever happens with the castle after that.

I never understood the whole "cat person" or "dog person" thing. I think both are awesome. We have 2 sister cats, and they're great. Cats are about as low maintenance as it gets with pets. One of them follows me around all the time, so my wife calls her my dogcat.

We actually got almost an inch of snow last night in the Chicago area. Goddamn Winter just doesn't want to accept that we've moved on to bigger and better things. I had to bring in all my cold season plants that I've grown. They'd probably be ok, but I'd be pissed if the cold/snow damaged them.

I've barely touched A Link Between Worlds. Same thing happens to me every year. Spring hits, and I just don't feel like gaming anymore. Still, I want to finish it off, as it IS a fantastic game. I've been hopelessly stuck in the Ice Ruins. Fuck this area. Too confusing. I'm going to have to follow an FAQ through it. I've done just fine with all the other dungeons, but this one is making my brain hurt.
73  Media / Brush and Quill / Re: Book Thread Continued on: April 13, 2014, 03:16:35 PM
Grim, did I ever recommend to you The Elegant Universe?  It's an excellent book about quantum mechanics and string theory, and its strength is that it also makes that crazy material pretty accessible.
I don't recall you mentioning it before. I'll look it up and add it to my long list of "to reads". I'm trying to educate myself more on things of that nature, but I have to space them out in between more fun reads. Don't want my brain exploding.
74  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: April 12, 2014, 01:36:04 PM
The problem comes when you want to watch new shows as they air. I would happily get rid of comcast, but then how do I (LEGALLY) watch The Walking Dead, or Doctor Who? Game of Thrones? You're stuck unless you're ok with waiting until they become available for home viewing, which, in the case of GOT, is a LONG wait. I wish they would just let us buy what we want on an individual basis. 99.9% of TV is junk, and I hate having to pay for it.
Plus, who do I go to for internet service if not Comcast or AT&T? I'm sure they're out there, but I don't know of any others in my area.
Anyway, nice day out, gotta garden.

I finally gave in and started watching Breaking Bad. Did I already mention that here? I don't know. The point IS that after only 4.5 episodes I am only totally hooked. Great show. It's especially dangerous how netflix gives you 20 seconds then starts up the next episode. It's hard not to just keep on going.
