Everything and Nothing / Photo Thread

A thread for your favorite, interesting, odd, whatever you saw through your camera, etc... photos.  :)

I'll post one my wife took - it's of a large clock in our living room shot in negative.

Computers, Internet and Technology / Now Playing - the video game edition
« on: December 07, 2007, 01:29:24 PM »
Picked up two new DS games this week.   

Orcs & Elves

“classic” dungeon crawl first person RPG.   Darn fun to play (if you like this sort of thing) – a bit on the short side – I’m half way through already since Saturday (which is really fast for me since I don’t play for hours on end…), but amazingly fun.    I’ve gotten overwhelmed a couple of times so even the ‘normal’ mode isn’t a walk in the park.   I think I’ll like ‘hard’ mode a bit better though.

Luminous Arc

A tactical/strategy RPG… somewhat similar to the Fire Emblem series (which I love and wish they’d release more titles in the states…) or games like Advance Wars.    Fight a series of battles with up to 15 characters against an army of monsters – move, attack in various ways, cast spells, etc…   This one takes terrain height and attacking from behind or the side into account which is a very nice enhancement.   

The downside of this one is the background story and dialogue is utterly horrible.   Ouch - you'll groan.   So far the battles have made it worthwhile, though.   I'm still happy I bought it.    It's also very much in the anime tradition of 13 year old children saving the world...  ha.


Everything and Nothing / Creating: inspiration, roadblocks, resources

Please add your thoughts on the creation process (writing music, writing books, painting, etc...)

What inspires you?
What happens when you get writers block?

Some of my favorite threads were the "how we record" threads.   Starting this thread for the gear side of things...

What do you record in? 
What're your main instruments?
Secret studio weapon?

(I'll post later... got to run...)
