I should really work out when I'm going to do all that schoolwork but first come Super Metroid and making my BZP convention package.

Soundtrack Appreciation Post

Nintendo, you release far too few soundtracks, and I wish those you did release were more easily available.  Would it be that hard to post all the soundtracks on iTunes?
Here's to appreciating the soundtracks, Nintendo or otherwise, that are available, and how awesome they are.
I own, from eBay, the Japanese Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask, Wind Waker, and Super Mario Galaxy soundtracks. My fave is probably Majora's Mask for pure addictive tunes, although Galaxy has a wondrous, different type of epic, inspiring pieces that are impeccably orchestrated.  Wind Garden and Melty Molten galaxy, anyone?
Here's too rereleases of the Twilight Princess, Moka OoT remix, and MM orchestrated albums so they go down in price, and more soundtracking in general.  (Also more iTunes/iTunes equivalent releases, pretty please?)

The atomic bomb go game is a celebrated game of Go that was in progress when the first atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, Japan on August 6, 1945. The venue of the game was in the suburbs of Hiroshima, about 5 kilometers (3.1 mi) from ground zero.[3]

The game was about to enter its third and final day of play when the bomb dropped at 8.15 am. The players — Hashimoto Utaro, who was the Honinbo title holder, and Iwamoto Kaoru, who was the challenger — had replayed the game to the adjourned position but had not yet started to play on. The explosion caused disruption to the game, damage to the building, and some injuries to those attending the match. Play was resumed after the lunch break, and the game was played to a conclusion that evening. Hashimoto, holding White, won by five points.

Game 1 of the match had been played 23 to 25 July in the centre of Hiroshima. The move to further out of the city area was recommended by the police, after a drop of propaganda leaflets[citation needed].

The match was continued after the war, ending in a 3-3 draw. A three-game playoff was held in 1946, won by Iwamoto in two straight games to claim the Honinbo title (becoming Honinbo Kunwa). Utaro went on to reclaim the title in 1950.[4]

The Honinbo title, originally the name of one of the Four go houses or state-funded academies of go that had been set up in the 17th century, had become the first of the annual titles for which professional players compete on the death of Honinbo Shusai. Wartime conditions had made the holding of annual matches problematic, since large preliminary qualifying tournaments were required to find a challenger. In 1945 the Honinbo Tournament was being run for the third time.

From Wikipedia:

In 2003, lecturers and students from the University of Plymouth MediaLab Arts course used a £2,000 grant from the Arts Council to study the literary output of real monkeys. They left a computer keyboard in the enclosure of six Celebes Crested Macaques in Paignton Zoo in Devon in England for a month, with a radio link to broadcast the results on a website.[10]
Not only did the monkeys produce nothing but five total pages[11] largely consisting of the letter S, but the lead male began by bashing the keyboard with a stone, and the monkeys continued by urinating and defecating on it. Mike Phillips, director of the university's Institute of Digital Arts and Technology (i-DAT), said that the artist-funded project was primarily performance art, and they had learned "an awful lot" from it. He concluded that monkeys "are not random generators. They're more complex than that. ... They were quite interested in the screen, and they saw that when they typed a letter, something happened. There was a level of intention there."[10][12]
