Tuesday Tunes: Summer-set

“The summer sun sets on Summerset.” – song title on a purloined item in TESO

To celebrate the early access gameplay of Summerset, the newest chapter of The Elder Scrolls Online which launched yesterday, I offer up these three songs about summer.

Sunday Morning Anime

Here are a couple of endings from the anime JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure for your Sunday morning entertainment.

I love the various references to different artists in the episodes they conclude.

Notable Quotes: Vincent van Gogh

Writers, artists, and other creative, deep thinkers tend to say meaningful things which touch us in some way. Author, singer, actress, and poet Maya Angelou, as well as the poet Rumi, were two individuals who left behind some fantastic quotes which resonate with me.

Noted artist Vincent van Gogh was another, and I was inspired to post these three van Gogh quotes after seeing a re-airing of one of my favourite Doctor Who episodes.

These quotes, along with many others, can be found on the GoodReads.com site in case you were interested in having a look.

β€œThe fishermen know that the sea is dangerous and the storm terrible, but they have never found these dangers sufficient reason for remaining ashore.”
― Vincent van Gogh

β€œI try more and more to be myself, caring relatively little whether people approve or disapprove.”
― Vincent van Gogh

β€œBe clearly aware of the stars and infinity on high. Then life seems almost enchanted after all.”
― Vincent van Gogh

Need A New Zojirushi

Our Zojirushi cooker finally gave up the ghost the other day. It was a good product and was used almost daily. Time to get a new one.

The cooker is mainly for rice, but is an excellent multi-purpose utensil and we used it for soups, stews, and even bean dishes. Great way to prep beans to fry up for southwestern-style recipes, for example.

I like this brand better than the crock-pot for the versatility, ease of use and cleaning, and all-around convenience. Definitely worth the price.

Sunday Screen-Shots

I rescued this post from the trash-can and updated it. Summerset Isle is coming soon! I can’t want to have a grand, new location for my Sanctuary guild-hall.

It will be epic.

Repairing a door after a successful capture.

Siege engines up – retake the crucial home keep!

The Doctor has taken the crown – an excellent display of teamwork!

Time away from the battlefield; visiting a lonely grave.

A feathered friend squawks approval.

Standing on the balcony of her grand, new manor…

…Sepultur’a surveys the courtyard, admiring the fruits of her labours and trials.

A reflecting pool, graced by the goddess of dawn and dusk.

Greeting a welcome guest…

…the knighted Titan-born in his finery.

Taking in the lovely scenery…

Sitting upon the hard-won throne. It is surprisingly comfortable!

Flanked by loyal, faithful, and trustworthy companions.

Having a drink near the statuary and shrubberies.

Time for an intimate meal…dessert to follow.

Five On Friday: Rock & Roll Hall of Fame 2018

For today’s “Five on Friday” post I decided to play one song each from my top five artists who were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame this year. Choosing one good song from these talented people was difficult, but I managed to narrow it down.

Awesome Game

The Seattle Mariners played an impressive history-making game in Toronto, Canuckistan against the Blue Jays.

James “Big Maple” Paxton, native to that country, threw a no-hitter in the Mariners’ 5 – 0 win. That is the only time a person from that region has ever thrown a no-hitter on their native turf.

Isn’t it ironic?

5 On Friday: Clueless Gamer

For today’s “Five on Friday” post I offer up some excellent “Clueless Gamer” clips from Team Coco. The weekend is almost here so it’s time for some gaming.

Bamboo Screen

The weather has improved quite a bit today and should be nice until the weekend begins, so some outdoor landscaping needs to take place in a hurry.

New neighbors require a natural privacy screen and the local bamboo provides it quite well. We have a veritable forest of it in the back yard and much needs to be moved. I didn’t want to get rid of it and neither did my hubster so we’re moving it to the fence-line between our property and the one next door.

It was nice to not have neighbors but now some fat slobs and their aged, 3-legged dog are moving in. They look to be the type to have grandchildren of the “special needs variety” and who needs to see walking abortions of that sort? I certainly don’t.

Bamboo screens are an eye-saver. The “green screen” will go up first.

The black bamboo will be added soon. The combination will be spectacular.

Happy 4/20 Friday

For this “Five on Friday” post I pay tribute to one of nature’s treasures: Cannabis. Marijuana. Mary Jane. Reefer. Sweet Leaf.

Whatever name you know it by or refer to it as, I am a consumer and aficionado of it. Like fine wine, prime sushi or any other decadent cuisine, it is to be enjoyed in moderation during certain times of the day or week.

Like any of my other enjoyable hobbies or pursuits other than computer gaming, there is no one selection or strain that is exclusively preferable. For this “Five On Friday” post, I offer up my five dank favourites in no particular order. Actually, doing it alphabetically should suffice.

Here they are:

B. B. #3, Bio-Diesel, Blue Pineapple Chunk, Gorilla Cookies, and Northern Wreck.

I’m also a fan of Animal Cookies, Obama, Granddaddy Kush, Purple Urkel and Big Bull.

Happy 4/20 Friday to all who enjoy a bit o’ the kind now and then. Fuck you mindless mongoloids who dress up in lederhosen and goose-step around your domiciles.

4/20 is about smoking the peace pipe. Dipshits.
