Worry not my friend. My first post was mostly hyperbole. I just happened to come back at the same time.

Perhaps you felt a disturbance in the force....as if one voice gave a “WHAT,” in terror, and then was suddenly silenced. In all seriousness I was in shock Joker was announced for Smash (insert “Never saw it coming,” song joke), but had moreso mixed feelings than anger or anything like that. Honestly I’m just happy we finally get an Atlus character, and hopefully this will open the door for another one or 2 in the future. It likely won’t happen, but something Etrian related would be cool.

Anyway, glad to see you back on the forum. Who’s your king for this month?

That’s a great score for a comic over 50 years old as well, dude. That’s a cool thing to have in a collection.

Thanks, I'm pretty proud of it.

Mostly just been playing some 5mash lately. Apparently my brother entered me into a tour on the 15th.

Other than that, just waiting for life to happen. Expecting a call from my shrink at some point to go over my blood results and determine what else needs to be done. Surgery on my jaw is going to be May-June now since we need to move my midline over a bit and adjust a few teeth for optimal results. Basically, let the braces do their stuff some more.

Found these waiting in the mail when I got home from work this afternoon. Volume 1 & 2 of Suikoden 2’s soundtrack.

I bought them via Amazon during Black Friday weekend. I don’t do much Black Friday shopping, but I found both new for a good deal so I went for it with part of the money I had saved. It helped I was in the middle of Suikoden being my new favorite thing too. 😜

But that aside, the music in the game is REALLY GOOD. I was really surprised by the first game’s soundtrack/music quality, and Suiko2’s music is just as good if not better in certain areas. Some standout songs include “The Opening,” “Reminiscence,” “Those Who Don’t Work Don’t Eat,” “Adventurous Journey,” “Tension,” “Bygone Days,” “Nahara Yan Kun,” “Dandy Richmond,” “A Bustling Town,” “Orizzonte,” “A Captured Town,” “Proud Saraband,” “A Man Named Gorudo,” “The Chase,” “Silver Wolf,” and every song associated with Neclord the Vampire Lord and the cooking side quest (special mention to “One Minute Showdown!”). It’s hard to only list a few examples! Going through and adding all the music to my iTunes/iPod gave me some more appreciation now that I can properly associate a track name with the songs, as well as realizing just how much music was in the game (105 songs total). Thank goodness for VGMDB having all the track names translated too! Took awhile to type them all in, but worth it.

I can’t believe Miki Higashino didn’t do much composing work after Suiko2, but you can tell she put a lot of effort into both Suikoden 1 & 2’s soundtrack. She has a mix of styles similar to what Yuzo Koshiro does, so perhaps that’s why her music clicked with me. Definitely happy to have it in my music collection.

Found this trailer and I’m excited. I won’t pick this up until next month, but nevertheless I’m looking forward to diving back into Ni No Kuni 2.

So while I was gone from the Den, I went a trip. Over Thanksgiving break I was in Cuba. It was nice, got to see my home town. Also met with my step dad’s side of the family for the first time. I’d heard about them over the years but it’s nice to have met them face to face.

My World of Light file in Smash is at 99.67%. So close to a perfect file.

Psych called. My blood work is fine. No concerns there so that's pretty nice.

Had the day off so I did the rest of my Christmas shopping today. It’s so much nicer shopping at the mall on a weekday versus the weekend, and I’m glad to have all my Christmas shopping done. Now I just need the last gift to arrive in the mail and I’ll be ready to wrap.

Also went and finally saw Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. Good film and direct follow up, but boy, that ending raises a big “Wait, what?!” Kind of bummed we didn’t see more beasts like the first film, but what new ones were shown off had some cool designs.

Ugh. Christmas Shopping. I need to do that too. 

 

Saw that movie too, pretty good and looking forward to the next one.

So... I hate to be a complainer, but it's worked again!

A few years back my wife and I got shitty advice and rediculously slow service on a single can of paint at Sherman Williams after the guy spent over an hour convincing us to do this and that and when he went to actually make the paint, couldn't and when he got help, found out it was impossible in that color, that style. Lowe's did it in 5 minutes and I said so on my bad Yelp review. Regional Manager gets in contact and next thing I know he's meeting me at the store to personally hand me $300 in paint. Very very nice.

This week my wife got kinda playfully yelled at by a neighbor over a "dead grass" violation he received from the HOA (I'm a Board member, secretly an undercover HOA hater trying to keep the rest of the board from really passing anything. Oh and I got a $50k playground built). It being winter and our community not being one with sprinklers, 500ish of our 508 homes' yards all go dormant for 5 months anyway. So I log on and notice the company we pay to manage violations sent out 71 "dead grass" violations, costing the HOA somewhere around $300-$500 in processing and mailing ratea. It's F-ing winter! Not to mention, we specifically brought this up and it was well-documented in our May meeting said company. I wrote a very not-nice email providing pictures of violations with typos all over, stupid violations, and violations not according to our code. Put our manager's boss on the email since she's new and rarely responds to anything anyway... dude responds at 10pm. I email back a bit nicer and mention how my wife was upset she's taking the blame for his company's mistake (ok, a bit of stretch here, but I know the neighbor will yell at me tomorrow). Dude gets back to me at midnight! detailing changes that will be made (from what I understand, we're their largest client) and privately sending me $150 gift card to take my wife out! Holy cow (pun intended, it's a steak house)! Between this and the gutter company responding at 6am to my request for them to fix an issue we discovered 6 months after installation, my faith in customer service is returning. Oh heck, and after almost a full year, I'm allowed to review on Amazon again! Trifecta this week!

That's actually pretty cool. Thanksgiving isn't my favorite holiday. I don't care for most of the traditional Thanksgiving food, plus I don't eat much anyway. A Korean BBQ place would be a ton o' fun.

It was. The place had some really good stuff...

I know my company is taking us to a classy Chinese restaurant to celebrate the end of the year

Got knocked out in round 2 during sudden death. I won't lie, the rules for the tournament were kinda jank. FFA no items, final smash on, battle field stages. I got a smash towel though.

First American Christmas this year with the family. Last year we were in Japan for my wedding (one year ago, tomorrow). For Christmas we spent it in Japan with my visiting parents and brother's family. We went to Atami. Somehow we found a Japanese Catholic church for Christmas mass. My wife and the baby bowed out, so it was the Americans traversing to fins a random, small church through the hills of Atami. The parish was super nice and they gave us English translations of the Japanese mass, to follow along. Afterward they invited us to a dinner they were throwing in the rectory. There was a language barrier, but one of the parishioners spoke English, so she was able to translate.

Later that night at Christmas dinner my dad inadvertently tried wasabi for the first time when he ate a chunk of it at once. We were all laughing to hard to ask him if he was okay. I always say that was one of my favorite memories of Christmas last year, and then I have to caveat that with "...besides the wedding," lest I invoke a stank-face from The Mrs.

Took a year off from the Den's annual Fantasy Football League as we had declining membership, but kept up the family league & work league due to peer and wife pressure. The family league I snuck into the playoffs on the last weekend but will probably exit based upon me not checking my lineup before the 1pm games (one guy sat out). Thought I was a goner anyway as my 7-7 team was taking on my 14-0 aunt who retired last year and apparently has nothing better to do. It's a surprisingly close one and I'll likely lose by single digits. D'oh.

Work league is usually a burned $20 investment yearly as competition is as rough as the old TV show The League. Somehow made the playoffs for the first time in 4 years as the last seed. Took out the top player last week and am cruising to another upset this week by almost doubling my crippled opponent's score. Blind dumb luck, but looks like I should finish at worst 2nd place and get some $$$ back. I should dump out next year and call it even (especially since I swear they plan the live draft on Plattym4's birthday each year)!
