about a week ago i went to an amazing concert and was so moved that i was like “thank you netjer for this band and this music….. thank you Ihy………………” but then i heard a voice in my head say “This is no miracle of the gods. Give them what they’re owed.”
and the realization i got from that short message was kind of nice? its like….. gods can help and guide us, but our achievements are things we do ourselves. YOU wrote that song. YOU build that treehouse. YOU got that job. gods can do incredible things, but so can we. as human beings. give yourself credit for that things youve done.
I was wondering, where does your url come from? Like what's the meaning of it?
It comes from an old episode of Game Theory! I’m not sure which episode in particular, but back when Matt used to do credits at the end of each episode there was one where he referred to himself as ‘The six and a half dollar man’ and, as a perpetually broke individual, it resonated with me.
“His fingers touched the strings, and all my thoughts were displaced. The sound was pure and sweet as water, bright as lemons. It was like no music I had ever heard before. It had warmth as a fire does, a texture and weight like polished ivory. It buoyed and soothed at once.”
One of the neatest things about the Prequel Trilogy is that the character traits which, in any other circumstances, would be virtues end up being the cause of the character’s downfall. Obi-Wan’s dedication to the rules is why he fails as Anakin’s mentor. Padme’s faith in ‘human’ decency and her drive to help others, makes her unable to see the problems of both her husband and the Republic until it’s too late. Anakin’s sense of personal loyalty, need to help, and, most critically, deference to authority, lead him to become Vader. The fact that it’s everyone’s virtues, rather than their flaws, which destroy them make their stories that much more tragic.
I’ve seen that neopets brush art challenge going around (I wish I could link it but they seem to have changed url/deactivated) and it was missing the newer brushes, so here’s the full list from the Rainbow Pool !
I also added some “brushes” for the other colours that are only obtainable through other methods. Have fun!
