Chrono News / Re: R.I.P. Akira Toriyama
« on: March 08, 2024, 07:40:40 pm »
Goodness, we lost one of the greats. When I read the news, I came here.

Like Lord J said, Chrono Trigger is a game which, through the people I've met because of it, has changed my life... for the better! For so many reasons, beyond the art and story we all love, I'm so very grateful to the creators of this game.

Thank you, Mr. Toriyama.

Here are the Chrono Trigger songs from the YouTube video I linked.

Man, you are my hero! Thank you!

Isn't that arrangement of Frog's Theme amazing? I squealed like I was 12 again when I first heard it. It was such a pleasant surprise.

I couldn't believe it hadn't been commented on here yet, but during the Parade of Nations, both Frog's Theme and Robo's Theme were prominently featured in the musical fanfare. I was so delighted I had to run here and resurrect my account to talk about it!

Frog's Theme was so beautifully done it brought a tear to my eye.

Yeah, she lives in quite a rural place, some distance away from where I work. I sat her down and told her that once I move, I will have a lease wherever I'll be at and won't be moving back in. Also, it will be difficult for me to come check on her often.

But she's in lovey dovey mode, and thinks her new boyfriend will be forever. I guess it's not just teenagers who can go boy crazy, heh. Still, it's very irritating that she is pushing me out to move in her new boyfriend, especially with all I've done for her. It's her house, so like I said before, I totally understand she has the right. I'm just stressing out about the situation.

That's a shitty situation to be in. It sucks for you (did she give you until October to move out) and is quite unfair. You probably have legal standing regarding proper notification for "eviction" in your state, but of course one doesn't normally want to do that to their family.

That all being said, I would lay some groundwork with her regarding your relationship with your aunt and her expectations. For example - if they break up after you move out, it's very likely she'll ask you to move in again. Or even with this boyfriend, if they're both elderly, she may be asking for lots of help for the both of them (without moving back in). One can't have their cake and eat it, too, and it's not fair to whip you around (should it come to that; I'm hoping it doesn't).

I'd lay some groundwork when you realistically can to make sure you are protected from her screwing you over again. Not meaning that to be mean to her; she may not realize that she's doing it, but at the end of the day, you gotta do what's best for rushingwind, too.

Welp, I don't really have many other people to talk to about this right now, so I'll share it with my old friends here. Turns out i'm getting evicted, despite paying rent and doing everything I was supposed to do (but hey, it happens to all of us at least once). I've been living in a spare bedroom with an elderly aunt, and I pay rent monthly, along with doing household duties, like cooking, cleaning, laundry, and any errands my aunt needs done.

However, she got a boyfriend a week and a half ago, so now I've been informed I have to leave so he can move in. It's her house, so I don't hold it against her, but it really puts me in a pickle. I just took a hefty pay cut three months ago at work, and because of that, my savings are now nil. At least I have until October to figure something out, but ugh, what timing...

Not to mention, I'm kind of worried about my aunt. She's kinda wealthy, and her boyfriend of 1.5 weeks that she's so in love with (and him, her, reportedly) does not inspire confidence in me that he'll actually take care of her.

Such is life, I guess.

I've had the great fortune to really explore and improve upon my musicianship these last few years. I've gotten great at the piano and guitar, and I'm an opera singer! It's been so amazing to pursue those dreams which once seemed so impossible that I never honestly allowed myself to consider pursuing them... until they nearly fell in my lap (I mean, I've been working hard at it, but the opportunity had to fall in my lap, I mean!).

So, I thought for this year's Dream Splash I'd create this awesome piece of music, complete with those epic female vocals you hear in other dramatic music! After all, I can play the instruments, and I can sing, so why not?

Problem is... I am not a composer. I can do great covers, but it's hard for me to musically "think outside of the box" without sheet music to guide me.

So, I've learned that being a good musician is not the same as having good musicianship. But! The Dream of Zeal will continue to drive me forwards to learn new things!

Just thought I'd share that with you guys. :)

There's at least one more after the Skyway comic. You can find it on mysticalpha's DeviantArt page:

They're still producing art, so maybe there's a chance they'll return to the comic one day (I hope!).

Site Updates / Re: When Cease and Desist Letters Backfire

It just occurred to me that I totally posted this in the wrong news forum (that's what I get for having too many tabs open at the same time). If a mod would move this to the "News Submissions" thread, I'd appreciate it.

I'm really sorry. I can't believe I did that. I'm usually super careful about posting in the correct forums.

Site Updates / When Cease and Desist Letters Backfire
« on: December 28, 2013, 02:53:08 pm »
Square Enix isn't the only company out there that likes to fire off Cease and Desist letters every time it thinks someone might even be looking its way with a fan or derivative work. The Arthur Conan Doyle Estate just learned that bullying creators into paying up fees or abandoning their projects is actually kind of a bad idea because eventually, you know, someone's going to get pissed off and fight back and sue them (and win):

The ACD Estate's careless actions of the past will cost them huge money now. Even big Hollywood producers have an excuse to sidestep them and not pay to use their classic characters.

This situation is obviously different than the CE issue that happened here. But still, it warms my heart to the core to know that a greedy organization sent out a heavy-handed C&D letter to try and intimidate what they thought was some small-time creator, and then it blew up in their faces most magnificently.

I'm very late to this thread, but i am just dropping by to say this is all freaking AMAZING. Good work. Seriously. Wow. That Zeal map has left me almost breathless! I can't wait to see how it all comes along!

This thread totally needs to make a comeback. Also, I have been waiting three years for an answer to Saj's brilliant riddle, and I DON"T HAVE IT YET. It's going to drive me CRAZY!

Here's a riddle I made up when I was 13.

I swim within the ocean blue,
I am a certain artist's tool.
Beware!  Too much of my harsh white
And you could lose your cherished life.
