Fucking awesome.  Those two books are things I didn't know I needed in my life, but definitely, definitely, definitely want to have read.


I'm also happy today because I'm making the wise decision to put my homework off for a day, duedate be damned (the professor told us that late homework would be accepted, just given a little bit less care in grading, and fuck it, I need a mental health day or two).  More Babylon 5 :I  I don't care if I'm being a bad student.  Right now, I'd be an even worse student if I made myself keep working when I feel this shitty.

it's always nice to read when you're not supposed to. :U

Why is a time when you're not supposed to read even a thing in school >_____>
Yeah, when I was in elementary school I always got in trouble for reading when I wasn't suppose too. Ironically my teacher had to talk to my parents about it after awhile.

Only once? I can't count how many times teachers have remarked to myself or my parents about my reading habits. Part of that was probably concern for the well-being of my social skills and/or escapism, but eh. I've had novels confiscated for the day as recently as last year, my junior year of high school.

For crying out loud, who am I hurting if I understand the materials and choose to read something unrelated instead?

Percy Grainger really likes the Baritone Horn. I have four solos during that piece. It's perhaps my first or second most favorite song to play ever. (Pretty close to Coat of Arms by George Kenny.)

DA-DUM! DA-DUM! DA-DUM-DE-DUM-DE-DUM-DE-DAH! DE-DAH! DE-DAH! DA-DAH-DE-DAH-DE-DUM-DE-DUM-DE-DUM-BOM!

For those of you that listened to the YouTube video, that is indeed where I cover for the second French Horn part to produce that amazing riff at 3:34.

*hums to self*

In DF, my fort is in a siege. Finally, some fun.

Fun is making me happy.

Just found a game that completely passed me by somehow.  It's ancient but it's like some kind of mixture of Wizardry, Brigandine, Empires Deluxe, and Master of Monsters.  Mostly empires deluxe and Brigandine.  And then take an empires deluxe map, and then throw a parallel world that also has players into it.  It is called Master of Magic.

Surely people are going to laugh at me for never having even heard of this game sooner. But I have just spent 7 hours straight playing this.  I apperantly had access to the 'good' plane very early into the game when I had taken a tower that had seemed to do nothing.  But when I had finally learned astral gate and successfully transferred some units over using it I saw that there was already an explored bit around a similarly placed tower, and sure enough when I placed some units there and changed my planar view they transferred.

I am now invading the green and happy realm with my army of dragonmen, beastmen, minotaurs, and dragons, slaughtering all in my way, because according to the graphs, I have something like 10 times the magic power inflow of all the chumps over here. And while I don't have THE largest army, it seems that even without my magic advantage I'm a close contender with the current big guy.  I named my first outpost on that side "The Black Morass".  Muahaha!

I think I'm in love.

Oh man, I love me some Percy Granger. I had the luck of sitting right in front of the baritone when we performed Granger at Carnegie... pretty sure that's why my right ear can't hear as well as my left can now. :P

When I hear Granger, I smile from a mix of fond band memories, and genuine joy at listening to his music. He's directly responsible for my love of olde folk songs.

GoG version of MoM works fine on Win7 x64, though it wants its older .73 DOSBOX, not the one I have right now. theres an unofficial patch on Abandonia (also a link to buy it on gog there) if you want some bugfixes and other assorted ai improvements.
Also, related.

Master of Magic was apparently the key inspiration behind the CivIV mod series "Fall from Heaven". I've been meaning to try it for a bit... let me know how it plays!

I have never played a piece of his that I didn't like. Shepherd's Hey, Lincolnshire Posy, Seventeen Come Sunday, all good pieces. Even the ones where I don't have all too interesting a part are fun to listen to. I sure do love me some folk songs.

The NDP(Socialists) won in my province again getting 37 seats, beating the PC's(Conservatives) 19 and the Liberals 1.

Hopefully this means good things for the NDP outside of Manitoba.
