What's all this, then?

This is external storage space for a brain.

Brains aren't viewable to others, but this can be shared out of the love of archivism and openness. If you wish to view it, know that it was not created for you, and there are some things you ought to know..

Shakuhachi >

A rather obvious topic that I didn't find good resources for when I was first interested in my shakuhachi. It got shelved for a long time because of that.

This topic isn't about the other necessary things.

If you can't put the flute to your mouth and make a decent note quite quickly, you probably aren't ready for anything more than Mary Had a Little Lamb and maybe not even that, yet. This is fine; accept your limitations so you have some place to set goals from.

Fist of Legend - (1994 movie) image

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0110200/

Upon hearing of his master's death, a man returns to Shanghai amidst tensions from its Japanese occupation, and learns there was foul play.

Quite a good movie, with all the basic elements. There's next to none of the B-movie cheese that's pervasive of such films, so it's good enough for everyday people.

Chinatown - (1974 movie) image

It is the 50s, and a Los Angeles private detective is swept up into intrigue when a job he takes goes sideways.

Meh. I can see how this would be interesting for someone who like gumshoe movies, but I don't so I'm bored. It, throughout, seems like it's trying too hard to be like an old black-and-white movie.

The Matrix Revolutions - (2003 movie) poster

With killer-machines digging down to bypass the defences of the last refuge of mankind, a man with sudden magic powers magics with his powers.

Oh god, make it end. The writing is so fucking sloppy that the second movie and this third movie should not be watched by anyone, most especially fans of the first movie.

  2. The Matrix Reloaded - (2003 movie)

TODO - The mage counts, even if a star mage

Improve the Star Mage - a cleric, maybe other stuff.

TODO - the Female Cleric has the Mage and Knight under her. Consider a melee..

This is a work in progress.

Yes, it's a very old game, but I decided to make a little project out of it so I don't miss out on unlocking anything and I otherwise have an efficient path for my characters.

The Princess Bride - (1987 movie) image

Soon to enter into a loveless marriage with the king, a common woman's only hope lies in a daring rescue attempt.

A classic movie of fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love and miracles. This is a kid-friendly movie in the sense that the 80s didn't have kids who were complete pussies. There is hatred, danger, death and blood, and yes proper torture, and this is a fine family-friendly film.

The only flaw in this movie is the grandfather-narrator, who is terribly overdone to the point of distraction.

Just like this poster, this movie has no brains.

The war against The Machines escalates, and it's a race between them digging down to Zion and The One pushing his way into the core of The Matrix for reason that wasn't explained very well.

If there are people out there who saw the first one and somehow get to this post before seeing this movie, please avoid this. Yes it's more of the same and it's "good", but this is a shit story that should be skipped.

This movie does not have an ending. It is part one of a mandatory two-movie binge.
