V for Vendetta is an amazingly powerful movie. The messages about fear are particularly strong.

"We need to remind the people why they need us!" -Chancellor Suttler

"The ultimate goal was the fear..." -V as Rookwood

So much of the media and actions these days are focused around using fear as a motivator. "Be afraid of guns; be afraid of gays; be afraid of x...

28 times around the sun I have been now. And life pulls its tricks again and again. Things change and stay the same. Life continues on.

I'm not one for making speeches or doing big celebrations around a birthday. Usually take it as time to reflect. And so much accomplished, so much still to do.

Happy Birthday!!🦄🎂🎉🎈🎁

I recently was blown away by a phenomenal set from @jenin: Sloppy Finger Painting. So I'm advocating for seeing and loving it.

Just learned that a few hours ago the legendary David Ogden Stiers died. His portrayal of Major Winchester in MASH shaped my teens, and his voicing of many animated shows and guest appearances (like Stargate Atlantis) will never be forgot. And he lived in the town I often visit, lately for scuba volunteering.

So I wanted to share something here that I can't really share elsewhere, and fun to share anyway.

My martial arts master recently hit the mark of 25 years in practice, and in honor of this and his impact on the area and people I commissioned a special plaque thanking him for this.

The part that is my "secret" is I did this all...

I havent gotten to spar with a proper fighter in too long... :(

@johnnycupcake13 If it has a lot of windup then it is a poor "finisher" (and taekwondo as basically/traditionally taught in my organization doesn't focus on "finishers". The art is the focus. That's also why the Krav and Jiujitsu has been brought in to make up that deficiency). And the predictability depends on the person practicing it too. I was recently part of a trial "black belt one-steps" drill where takedowns are a focus and the final step was to make our own. Of the 24 people partaking not one was the same.

Fun stuff. Talked to my doctor today and found my toe is fractured/broke. Not the best time for this either, as if any time is good for a broken bone. At least this one happened during martial arts for once (instead of elsewhere like most other injuries like this for me).

dariianity:
Recover!
demonwolf:
@dariianity That I will do. It won't stop me, though it will slow me.

GTA 5 is done for me completely now unless I get a very strong inkling for the story again, or get specifically requested to join something.

Like the title says, ask me anything. Feeling spontaneous tonight and wanting to do something different. All answers will be assured truth, it is dishonorable to lie afterall.

@dobleeffe Almost forgot that @vexaltyn is on my short list of favorite Hopefuls too (still thrown by the name change, was trying to link the old name)

The Dragonlance Chronicles is a really REALLY long series following different story arches in the universe, mainly the story follows Characters like Tanis Half-elven , Tasslehoff Burrfoot a halfling, A few dwarves ....  It's basically the Lord of the Rings in a way...
