Some would argue 1995 was a tad early to announce a sequel to the game that's coming out in 1996, along with not actually telling the developer about it, but eh... it's the way of Miyamoto. He's a great man.

tragic (adj.)
1540s, "calamitous, disastrous, fatal" ("resembling the actions in a stage tragedy"), shortened from tragical (late 15c.), modeled on Latin tragicus, from Greek tragikos "of or pertaining to tragedy; stately, majestic; plaintive," literally "goatish, of or pertaining to a goat," and perhaps referring to a satyr impersonated by a goat singer or satyric actor, from tragodia (see tragedy). Tragic flaw (1913) translates Greek hamartia. Related: Tragically.

Whoa! Today is June 6th, 2016. Meaning, it's 6/6/16!

An absolutely meaningless numerical date representation!

Exclusive: Legend Maker is Not Zelda, it’s Different:

Legend Maker may have started out as a fan-made Zelda game that was smacked down by Nintendo, but it’s now on Kickstarter aiming for a 2017 release on PC.

A hypothesis crossed my mind recently, and the more I look into it, the more I think it's plausible, and that I don't really care the outcome: it would be healthier to replace the bread in sandwiches with dark chocolate.

There are numerous reasons for this, but when it comes down to it, once the idea has occurred the real question becomes why aren't we already doing this, regardless of the actual health benefits?

For space purposes, I'd recommend aerated chocolate, but to each their own.

Symphony X was one of the bands that helped take me from a very casual fan of metal to a full on metalhead.

This is one of their newer and heavier songs.

He told the crowds that in order to “make room for grace,” one must be willing to welcome what he referred as the logic of “unjust love.”

“Is it just that I am a widow? Is it just that Francesco does not have his mother? Is it just to be sick? Is it just to be disabled?”

“Is it just that the Son of God died on the Cross? No, it is not just, but this is love: a wonderful injustice.”
 
“Chiara was beautiful. She was bright. She was happy. She was already saying 'I love you' to everyone. She was happy to have lived a full and incredible life. She was happy to have loved.”
In a testimony at the Vatican’s Jubilee for the sick and disabled, the husband of the late Chiara Corbella Petrillo – who died after rejecting medical treatment in order to save her unborn child – spoke about his wife's joyful faith in the face of terminal illness.

This is not just a problem for the internet archive. False claims on youtube are pretty rampant, including vague claims on content the claimer has no association with at all.

Story
Tagline
I'll be here.
Introduction
I have a double majored degree in Theology and Religious Studies and English and enjoy continuing to learn along those lines, particularly Catholic Systematic Theology for the former and 19th-early 20th Century British literature for the latter though I often enjoy other related material as well. I work in tech, and have particular interest in both the development of new technologies and their history, especially in computer technology.

Hobby and arts wise, I like Heavy Metal music, particularly Symphonic Power Metal. I enjoy Retro games for their fun, as well as for their artistic properties, history and cultural elements. I also enjoy a wide variety of other topics and can often be drawn into most fields, at least for a little while.
