Plinky Plonk (That's The Noise Of A Piano, Right?)

Posted by The Dandy Automaton , May 06 2012 · 35 views

How rare for me to spend a day doing revision. If it can be called that. I've watched A Hard Day's Night, reread about half of Frankenstein and then watched Billy Liar, which besides from AHDN and Donnie Darko, is one of the few texts we looked at in Film Studies which I actually enjoyed. I find I can relate to Billy quite a bit.

Far more joyously, I finally acquired two new albums today, which I'd been meaning to get for a while. "NieR Tribute Album -Echo-" and "Piano Collections NieR Gestalt & NieR Replicant". -Echo- is alright, but given the facts it's a tribute album, is forgettable. I would never have imagined "Shadowlord's Castle (Roar)" to be performed by a brass band, but clearly someone else did and what do I know? No, the piano collection is where it's at. Both "Repose" and "Hills of Radiant Winds" sound gorgeous in this mix, not to mention how it has Grimoire Rubrum on the album artwork. Grimoire Rubrum! That boss we fought for about two minutes who was never mentioned before and never gets referred to again! :D

I'm Starting To Develop A Fear Of Screaming Fangirls

I'm really hard-pressed to call lying in bed whilst watching A Hard Day's Night "revision". Something just doesn't seem right.

It's Too Darn Optimistic Round Here!

Posted by The Dandy Automaton , May 05 2012 · 43 views

I'm in one of those melancholic moods at the moment. Not a bad one where I'm just moping around, hating myself. Just a pretty good one where sad stuff feels kinda refreshing. Not sure how to describe it. Hopefully you guys know what I mean.

But the one thing I need is more sad music. I never seem to have enough anymore. I've been listening to "Enough For One Life" from the Assassin's Creed soundtrack, "Star-Stealing Girl" from the Chrono Cross OST, "Anchor Song" from Freesscape and "Yonah (Piano Version) from the NieR soundtrack, but I'm still in need of more.

Anyone got any recommendations?

I, For One, Welcome Our New Malicious Overlords

Posted by The Dandy Automaton , May 04 2012 · 51 views

And here we are again. Wasn't that a fun five days, going to websites, sitting in the BZPower groups and taunting our dear hacker friend, all the while irritating the locals.

So, not much has really happened in the time we've been gone to me. I've been discovering new bands and songs, including a band whose lead singer did the vocals for the NieR soundtrack (I swiftly told my monitor to cease talking and accept my currency), been doing a lot more reading and, big surprise, I've fallen back into a depression. This time I've decided to go back to councilling, so that'll be a barrel of laughs.

Custard Creams Are The Best Ice Breaker

Posted by The Dandy Automaton , Apr 27 2012 · 62 views

Guess who finally finished The Hunger Games. Here's a hint: It's me! ...God, I hate being a slow reader.

It's weird how I always considered a positive social experience to be a success. I mean, today, I finished my day in a good mood, because I actually had a good laugh with my group in English Language. Bearing in mind this is the class I'd pretty much given up on trying to integrate with, due to on several times accidentally having them all think I'm completely insane. My group and I were mostly in hysterics when we became curious as to the origin of the custard cream. A quick search on the internet and we found this gem:

The Custard Cream was invented by accident in 1575 when Russian woodsman Vladimir Nabkotov returned home from work and was the victim of an elaborate practical joke by his second daughter, Antonina. It was especially unfortunate that she died in the ensuing fracas before Vladimir had actually tried the biscuits, and discovered to them to be really quite lovely. He spent the rest of his life wracked with guilt at her death, but he lived long enough to reverse-engineer the recipe, and ultimately published his findings to an enamoured 16th Century Russia. Custard creams have been with us ever since, and thank the good Lord for that !



We then spent a while pondering just what kind of prank could have ended with such tragic and delicious results.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to try and stop myself from buying more shirts with dragons and wolves on. I'm doubtful this will be successful.
