Thanks! So do I. :) I have a horrible tendency to leave my doodles where ever I draw them, but I think I can take this one a little bit further.

I don't know if this will go through for some reason. Anywho, this is a doodle I've been working on in and out of class:

Also just made my first banana bread an hour ago. It's missing some sugar... but it's still sweet!

EDIT: It came through! It's pretty high-res, so you'll have to click the image to see close up and portrait. Click to zoom in to get nitty-gritty.

Not in this order:

Kill Bill

Princess Mononoke

Rurouni Kenshin: Trust & Betrayal

Departures - Soon after buying an expensive cello, Daigo Kobayashi (Masahiro Motoki) learns that his orchestra is disbanding. Daigo and his wife move back to his hometown in northern Japan, where he answers an ad for what he thinks is a travel agency but is, in actuality, a mortuary. As he learns and carries out the rituals used in preparing the dead for their final rest, Daigo finds his true calling in life.

Milk - In 1972, Harvey Milk (Sean Penn) and his then-lover Scott Smith leave New York for San Francisco, with Milk determined to accomplish something meaningful in his life. Settling in the Castro District, he opens a camera shop and helps transform the area into a mecca for gays and lesbians. In 1977 he becomes the nation's first openly gay man elected to a notable public office when he wins a seat on the Board of Supervisors. The following year, Dan White (Josh Brolin) kills Milk in cold blood.

Ha! Brilliant. Loving the anime they're finally getting listed. OPM's one that sticks out for good reason. If you're a fan of animes that tackle tropes, then you may like Re: Zero. It's a dark take on the "NEET transported to fantasy world" theme.

Happens to the best of us, especially yours truly. Bless the edit button.

    Madness of Many is fantastic. It's more complex and has less big riff led tracks, but as a result has lot more depth.

Oh... looking forward to the listen. Their debut album still rings in my head from time to time despite not remembering the last time I gave it a listen. No doubt this'll be as enjoyable. If not, it'll grow on me after a few rounds. I tend to be a fan of swelling riff-driven tracks (hence, love of Soilwork), but theme and variation will be refreshing.

Makes more sense. I was introduced to there debut album (I thought in 2008, but it released in '09) and was going off dated information since. Thanks for the check. Wikipedia says you've got the member list right. Assuming auto-correct got the best of you, turning Mansoor into Moor.

Looks like I have to catch up on Madness of Many. Sounds like a great soundtrack to my proofs homework tonight.

I was going to suggest just this. I think this is the same core group as Periphery except no vocals, if memory serves. Periphery has some of my favorite covers.

On another note, one of my good friends happens to be the daughter of Jonny Z. She had some great recommendations for other bands in the vein of TessaracT:

- Knife Fight Orchestra

- Baroness

- Good Fight Music

- Strapping Young Lads

- Checksters

Haven't gone through them myself yet, but thought I'd share my list in hopes then popping up here another day.

Of the connotations that can be relayed, I found 'highlight' as the least personable. To escape from guessing intentions in diction, I'm more a fan of 'circledot' or 'wheel' or 'some hubski-esque word without meaning'. Keeps it central to the site and no room for interpretation.... you just circledot them, take know?

EDIT: This sound weird, but the more I think about it, why not 'orange'? That's what we all see as our own posts/comments.

Celebrate, sponsor, highlight?

Also, promoting is a way for those without badges to 'unlock' other accounts? As in, once you have an unlocked account, you can promote any newcomers without restriction?

    I remember being pretty much unsympathetic towards any of the main characters.

In hindsight, this was my original line of thought. I only finished the series to finish it and return the borrowed DVD set. Ultimately, the characters themselves weren't outstanding, but all that surrounded them did. I found myself raving at my music geek of a brother of why he'll love each and every episode: describing the art, soundtrack for fight scenes, hell, even chase scenes.

Clever. I'm not totally clear on how each spoke is quantified for users completing a hubwheel, but I think endless spamming isn't one of them. 🖒
