Alright alright. I know google says Italian restaurant. But give a guy a break. I don’t think of it as an Italian restaurant. Convince me otherwise or agree with me?

Nagga's Hill, Old Wyk
20th day of the 2nd moon
On the crown of the hill four-and-forty monstrous stone ribs rose from the earth like the trunks of great pale trees. She closed her eyes to the lullaby of the ocean, breathing in it's poigant salty breath. The salty taste of the air on her tongue and the scent of the sea in her nostrils. The charcoal clouds of omen loomed above them, the sea breeze taking pace as distant thunder rolled like the hoofs of cavalry approaching, the Storm God on his chariot, about to throw his lighting javelins against the sea, the endless battle between the undernearth and the overhead. Across the bay, the black mountains of Great Wyk put on the blue-green hues of soldier pines.
Around the cliffed slope, hundreds of Ironborn had gathered, captains from Harlaw to Great Wyk. A hundred banners flapping in the wind, dancing to the crash of the waves rolling in, each of them as strong... keep reading on reddit ➡

Hello peeps. I have been reading with faint yelps of recognition on this thread, and like many of us here, getting a great deal of comfort and solace knowing that we share similar problems and there are, actually, solutions to them. Here’s a tale of irony and bitter humor that will put a smile on the most curmudgeonly of faces....
About 5 years ago I was married, unfortunately, to a person and let’s just say things had come to a parting of the ways. He was gaslighting for all he was worth, and I was just trying to keep my head above water and to stay sane in a foreign land where I had no family, no money, no right to remain, no home and no job. He had been violent and had been thrown in jail for violating a restraining order. After a Herculean effort I managed to get a vehicle and a place to stay and moved myself and my darling dog 120 miles away, and as I had a work permit (finally!) I got busy looking for wor... keep reading on reddit ➡
(At behest of u/Exospheric-Pressure, I have overset the first deal of 'Zarathustra'; be ready for a long post)
When Zarathustra was thirty years old, he left his home and the lake of his home, and goed into the fells. There he beliked his soul and alonehood, and for ten years did not weary of it. But at last his heart shifted,—and rising one morning with the rosy dawn, he goed before the sun, and spake thus unto it:
Thou great star! What would be thy happiness if thou hadst not those for whom thou shinest!
For ten years hast thou climbed hither unto my hollow: thou wouldst have wearied of thy light and of the faring, had it not been for me, mine orn, and my snake.
But we awaited thee every morning, took from thee thine overflow and blessed thee for it.
Lo! I am weary of my wisdom, like the bee that hath gathered too much honey; I need hands outstretched to take it.
I would fain bestow and outdeal, until the wise have once more become happy in their rashness, and the arm happy i... keep reading on reddit ➡
I tried to find a new list of instruments for Mario Maker 2 to make a music level of Everybody Wants to Rule the World, but I couldn't, so I decided to make my own. Most of the ones that were in the previous entries of the series are the same, but some are very different. Green and Red Koopas and Buzzy Beetles seem pretty different, so be sure to try them for yourself. I put alternate names for instruments so nobody gets confused. I put question marks by the ones I'm not 100% sure about, so it'd be great if you could tell me what you think about those. At the bottom I put a list of items I couldn't get to hit the Note Blocks, but feel free to try for yourself, because there could be a way to do it I didn't think of. Additionally, the 3D World theme does not have Note Blocks. That said, if you or someone else finds a way to make music in that theme, let me know and I'll update the list. Finally, if I got anything wrong or if you're confused about something, please leave a comment!... keep reading on reddit ➡
And I heard, as it were, the noise of riots
One of the five beasts saying,
'Come and see.' and I saw, and behold a white cake"
There's a woman goin' 'round takin' names
And she decides who to free and who to blame
Everybody won't be treated all the same
There'll be a golden L reachin' down
When the bride comes around
The ahoge on your head will stand up
At the terror in each cake and in each cup
Will you partake of thatlast offered chap
Or disappear into the wedding's ground?

The Bride Quint is in the theories
It's hard for thee to accept Itsuki

Then the Father Negi will call his Quint's home

Hello, Violy violinists. let me introduce you to the recently added “Albums” of violin repertoires on Violy — the best violin app. Without further ado, let’s check out the repertoire of Joseph Haydn, whose contributions to musical form have earned him the epithets “Father of the Symphony” and “Father of the String Quartet”.
Franz Joseph Haydn was an Austrian composer of the Classical period. He played an important role in the development of chamber music, such as the piano trio. His contribution to musical form has earned him the title of “Father of Symphony” and “Father of String Quartet”.
Haydn spent much of his career as a court musician for the wealthy Esterházy family at their remote estate. Until the later part of

The news from Zion hit Marshal Antuma like a thunderbolt. He’d grappled with the choice of where to send the second protecting force, and in the end it had come down to two choices. The two colonies outside of Sol that were the most important to humanity: Endymion...and Zion.
And he’d chosen wrong.
Perhaps the Khonhim had spotted the task force at Endymion, and shifted targets. Or maybe it was simply bad luck. There were a thousand factors that may have played a part, not that it mattered now. He was halfway tempted to shift the tas... keep reading on reddit ➡
Mutse-Nam's men were eager to see the glass-eyed stare of death, to feel the Chalaku hovering around them, harvesting the souls of their enemies, to smell the stench of entrails as they rode down one-colour-men with no pattern, no horses, no morals, no god, no gardens, no cities, and no hope. The horses picked up on it too - many of the Akal-Teke were bred for war - which did not mean slow and lumbering, if strong. No, war in the desert meant fast and light and willing and tenacious, tenacious above all. Man and horse must both will to endure above all else in the world. The horses were prancing, dancing, toying with the sand beneath their hooves, snorting and blowing, eager to race forward.
"Youngest, you must not do this," Mutse's mother pleaded. "Stay your hand, take these people as your own, as our own."
His mouth curled into a sneer as he looked down upon his mother, the lines of her face as furrowed as the rich dark earth that provided... keep reading on reddit ➡
Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.1: The Advent of Lord Kṛṣṇa: IntroductionSB
10.1.30: Kaḿsa, the son of King Ugrasena, in order to please his sister Devakī on the occasion of her marriage, took charge of the reins of the horses and became the chariot driver. He was surrounded by hundreds of golden chariots. https://prabhupadabooks.com/sb/10/1/30
SB 10.1.31-32: Devakī's father, King Devaka, was very much affectionate to his daughter. Therefore, while she and her husband were leaving home, he gave her a dowry of four hundred elephants nicely decorated with golden garlands. He also gave ten thousand horses, eighteen hundred chariots, and two hundred very beautiful young maidservants, fully decorated with ornaments.Complete Verse : [https://prabhupadabooks.com/sb/10/1/31-32](https://prabhupadabooks.com/sb/10/1/31-32?fbclid=IwAR2vsGPX99G1_CXUdSeJAptV3m0HbJ2iR_t1pZ5QpXoPsz6iNnB0Y... keep reading on reddit ➡

There’s just something about the use of the old synths and the technical limitations of the hardware that make the music from the 16-bit games so much more meaningful. In my opinion, the jump in music quality from gen 2 to gem 3 was the greatest out of all of them, probably because the GBA added direct sound capabilities.
I especially love the sound of the horn synth and trumpet synths in gen 3. Even though they don’t sound 100% like the real instrument, their sound has a certain uniqueness that I will always associate with the gen 3 games that comprised so much of my childhood. The route 110 theme is the theme I heard most back in the day, due to the sheer fact that my character would spend most of his time in the routes that played that theme. I think there was no better way to convey an free world to roam than with that theme; the opening horn line and the underlying (what seem to be) kettledrums make for one of my favorite themes that never get old.
