This particular variation of Zant’s theme comes from the cut scene that plays after Link finds the last Fused Shadow. Zant confronts Link to steal the pieces and critically injures Midna. The Usurper King is certainly a disturbing and creepy villain, with his theme heightening that unsettling factor
Am I the only one annoyed about how some LoZ fans treat Zant?
I’ve seen alot of people call him disappointing and too crazy/insane.
have you guys
even been paying attention
to what he did.
These scenes pretty much showed Zant’s TRUE personality: an arrogant, calm, collected,sinister, cunning tactician.
Oh, and does anyone remember what the Light Spirit said to Link at Lanayru spring about the Fused Shadows?
‘’Those who do not know the danger of wielding power will, before long, be ruled by it.’’
Let’s not forget that he said that quote along with a creepy vision that was enough to bring the holder of the Triforce of COURAGE to his knees.
So after Lakebed Temple, Zant stole the Fused Shadows from Midna.Then, once you find him at Twilight Palace, he acts like a huge psychopath.
Think about this for a second.
Everything from the beginning all the way up to before the Stallord fight was Zant’s real character. But he didn’t know how to properly control the Fused Shadows and was corrupted into a lunatic as punishment.
To sum things up: Zant was not always a crazed and pouty manchild, guys.
Haven’t taken the Landcruiser anywhere in quite a while. Headed up I90 to Lake Kacheelus and played around in the lakebed for a while, then hopped on a fun forest road that goes up and over to Lake Kachess.
Went and found snow today. Attempted to squeeze by a stump in this little gully at the lakebed and broke out my rear side window. Pretty bummed about that, but had a great time otherwise. Found a creepy abandoned cabin, and finished the day with a short hike to Franklin falls.
you know what I hate? witnessing firsthand the slow petering off of fanart for a thing you like. like, be it a show or an anime or a game or what have you, eventually fanartists all move on to something else and you’re just kinda left digging for ham scraps in the tag dumpster desperately clawing at the one new piece of fanart that comes out every other week. yes, dear fanartist, thank you for blessing me with this drawing of the squid sisters. it has been so long since i have supped from the splatoon pool. any drop of moisture will sustain me. im dying in a fan content desert. i remember when it was lively and green, fanart trees for miles. now there is nothing. im clawing at the cracked soil in this dried lakebed. im so cold.
Fossil Reveals Ostrich Relatives Once Lived in North America
New research reveals that 50-million-year-old bird fossil specimens, some of which are on display in the Museum’s special exhibition Dinosaurs Among Us, are from a previously unknown relative of the modern-day ostrich.
The study, published recently in the Bulletin of the American Museum of Natural History, is co-authored by Sterling Nesbitt of Virginia Tech and Julia Clarke of the University of Texas at Austin, both of whom are also research associates at the Museum.
“This is one of the earliest well-represented bird species after the age of large dinosaurs,” said Nesbitt of the specimen, which was found more than a decade ago—with bones, feathers, and even soft tissues intact—in a former lakebed in Wyoming.
Space Shuttle prototype Enterprise flies free after being released from
NASA’s 747 Shuttle Carrier Aircraft (SCA) over Rogers Dry Lakebed
during the second of five free flights carried out at the Dryden Flight
Research Center, Edwards, California, as part of the Shuttle program’s
Approach and Landing Tests (ALT). The tests were conducted to verify
orbiter aerodynamics and handling characteristics in preparation for
orbital flights with the Space Shuttle Columbia beginning in April 1981.
A tail cone over the main engine area of Enterprise smoothed out
turbulent air flow during flight. It was removed on the two last free
flights to accurately check approach and landing characteristics. A
series of test flights during which Enterprise was taken aloft atop the
SCA, but was not released, preceded the free flight tests. The Space
Shuttle Approach and Landing Tests (ALT) program allowed pilots and
engineers to learn how the Space Shuttle and the modified Boeing 747
Shuttle Carrier Aircraft (SCA) handled during low-speed flight and
landing. The Enterprise, a prototype of the Space Shuttles, and the SCA
were flown to conduct the approach and landing tests at the NASA Dryden
Flight Research Center, Edwards, California, from February to October
1977. The first flight of the program consisted of the Space Shuttle
Enterprise attached to the Shuttle Carrier Aircraft. These flights were
to determine how well the two vehicles flew together. Five
“captive-inactive” flights were flown during this first phase in which
there was no crew in the Enterprise. The next series of captive flights
was flown with a flight crew of two on board the prototype Space
Shuttle. Only three such flights proved necessary. This led to the
free-flight test series. The free-flight phase of the ALT program
allowed pilots and engineers to learn how the Space Shuttle handled in
low-speed flight and landing attitudes. For these landings, the
Enterprise was flown by a crew of two after it was released from the top
of the SCA. The vehicle was released at altitudes ranging from 19,000
to 26,000 feet. The Enterprise had no propulsion system, but its first
four glides to the Rogers Dry Lake runway provided realistic, in-flight
simulations of how subsequent Space Shuttles would be flown at the end
of an orbital mission. The fifth approach and landing test, with the
Enterprise landing on the Edwards Air Force Base concrete runway,
revealed a problem with the Space Shuttle flight control system that
made it susceptible to Pilot-Induced Oscillation (PIO), a potentially
dangerous control problem during a landing. Further research using other
NASA aircraft, especially the F-8 Digital-Fly-By-Wire aircraft, led to
correction of the PIO problem before the first orbital flight. The
Enterprise’s last free-flight was October 26, 1977, after which it was
ferried to other NASA centers for ground-based flight simulations that
tested Space Shuttle systems and structure.
here I thought your fingers were well fed by the maze. I was wrong, as I am often when I am alone with the notes that I take. ; the hood you fill with steam, the lip you curl to seal a dream, the swan song of mimetic faculty. death and your ribs, your neck, a final repose you kiss with anorexic breath. ; here I thought my eyes were pebbles enrapt with the lakebed’s descent. I was wrong. as I am often when I am reaching for the bottom of every reflection I circumvent.
