With the return of Gourmet Gaming, I felt a return to the classics (in terms of both food and games) as a gentle ease in would be best. Pokémon recently enjoyed a resurgence in popularity thanks to ‘Twitch Plays Pokémon’ where gamers set aside their differences and took part in some (mostly) jolly co-operation in a bid to become Pokémon master. When it came to the Old Gateau, I decided to base the recipe on the traditional Japanese treat of Uirō, which is rather similar to Mochi in texture and taste. I decided only a sweet from the Edo period could have survived so long in the Old Chateau. I like to think maybe it’s the final tasty evolution of a Gengar…
Sir Anthony Hopkins Hears The Waltz He Wrote 50 Years Ago For The First Time
Academy Award-winning actor Sir Anthony Hopkins was a musician before he got into acting. 50 years ago he wrote a waltz but was too afraid to ever hear it play. Dutch violinist André Rieu performs it for the very first time. Watch Hopkins’ reaction.
That was beautiful
I cried a few tears and felt better about humanity’s endeavors.
My laptop’s been having issues for the past week. (Computer hasn’t been recognizing that my laptop is plugged in while putting the power settings on high performance and launching games on it, which leads to either draining my laptop battery, or shutting down without warning if I don’t have the battery plugged in) Luckily, it’s still under warranty, so I can get it serviced. Gotta give credit where credit’s due: MSI was really quick on their customer service, which is refreshing.
However, I need it for well… everything right now. I might send it in a few days before I go on my trip to Japan so they can fix it while I’m gone.
So May is going to be an odd month where I’ll be holding off from doing commissions to get the computer serviced. Might be a sign that I need to look into building a new desktop.
