A Proposition will be back in order for a few chapters, after which it will likely spin out again. I swear I've been tempted to hire consultancy services or something, but then I think about the idea of hiring somebody to read my fanfiction, and it sounds stupid.

 

There's something that surprised me, though: people out there waited the one and a half years for me to update that bucket of molasses. People were still hanging around for that long!? Then again -- I'm still around, too, so I guess I have nothing to say. As for why the story became difficult... well, there were a number of reasons. Work being the obvious dampener.

 

I try not to let work be an excuse for less productivity. Try. I had moderate success for about two years. One year and a half, I did nearly nothing except code. Almost every day, I spent my eight hours at work, usually coding, came home, coded till midnight. Food and hygiene somewhere in there. Repeat. Weekends, vacation days, great, it's time to work on my coding projects. I thought I might even become like the president of Vanillaware who allegedly eats bread every meal. Man. Talk about burn hard, burn fast, soon maybe, burn out. On the latter, I saw the signs: I started coming home to jam mythic dungeons with my friends instead. (I have unsubscribed from WoW for now.) Funnily, I still remember being new at programming and everybody laughing at me. :-) Now I'm a mid-level dev having a mid-career crisis.

 

UUgh I think I just needed to say all that. I don't really have anything interesting to share. If I'm not coding, I'll try to do A Proposition. Try.

Kokia has an angelic voice. This is one of my favourites from her.

Some really cool instruments in the music this expansion. I dunno about all the hate BFA is getting, dungeon and raid content feel relatively the same. Some classes could use a couple more abilities but yeah.


In Topic: [Anime] What did you watch today?

I watched this 90's anime called Iria: Zeiram the Bounty Hunter. Pretty decent show with great production quality. I thought there was going to be a bounty hunter called Zeiram. Instead, Zeiram was a freaky alien who gave off serious Bio-Broly vibes (or the other way around, considering the respective release dates?). Jesus, that creature was horrible.

The Xenogears concert bluray came in the mail today. It was awesome!

 

- I could finally hear it without the audio stutter. Catharsis. Who needs drugs when you have Xenogears music.

 

- They fixed trumpet guy's mistake in Flight! I wonder if they re-recorded the entire section or pulled it from another concert performance. I don't know why I'm so stunned about this, seeing as it was an obvious move.

 

- They remastered the audio! Now it sounds really well-adjusted and clean for a concert recording. Previously, in "Blazing Knights," the electric guitar was super loud at this one part (you'll know what I'm talking about if you've heard the stream; the guitar even quiets down drastically as if to say 'oops', lol). Now it sounds even with the rest of the performance. Other instruments also received a lift, revealing some melodies that I wasn't aware of before. Pleasant surprise. I think the percussion is still overwhelming sometimes, though, especially versus strings and Joanne Hogg's voice.

 

Joanne Hogg, I love Joanne Hogg lol. I said that before didn't I? Her and her oh so twee but so lovable lyrics.

 

9.99999/10 except for percussion volume

 

Quick, check it out before it goes down again!
