I'm not one who would usually air the family "dirty laundry", but I'm in need of support and good thoughts right now...

I've been dealing with a situation here at home with my spouse. She has become infatuated with Sam Heughn, the actor who plays Jamie Fraser on Outlander. She keeps getting messages on different platforms (Google Chat, Twitter, etc.) from people purporting to be...

It's generally to do with self-confidence.  Like, she feels she's too smart, too well-informed, to deserving to contemplate that she's being scammed.  You aren't arguing with logic, in her eyes, you are just not seeing how amazing she really is.  This is something you need to take her to a psychiatrist and sit in, if you can.  And you may have to look at locking her out of finance until she is under control.  I am not an expert, but you really should take her to one.
rlochraven:
Thanks, @fredhincanada.  I'm looking into all of what you noted.  It's just hard that with the number of people telling her it's yet another scam, she just won't take us seriously.

So, kind of as a bonus today, here is the track that I was planning to share for yesterday, but moved it when I somehow forgot to post yesterday. The track is Hello, World! by Bump of Chicken.

Enjoy!

I can't believe that I missed yesterday!! So here you go, a day late....

Yesterday's track is Grilletto, by GARNiDELiA. My brain isn't working to remind me which anime this was used in, but agree song nonetheless.

Enjoy!

Been having this one on repeat lately!

Love it

Today's selection is an older track from one of the first Anime series I watched (and collected!). This is Hemisphere by Maaya Sakamoto, from the series Rah Xephon.

Rah Xephon was one of the first series I watched, and at the time, I believe was being shown on Showtime. I eventually bought the DVDs of the series and the 'compilation' movie. Still one of...

This one may be a surprise, but definitely fits my anime theme. I've selected Breaking the Habit by Linkin Park. I remember the first time I watched this video. I was hooked! (Must be the Otaku in me!)

Enjoy!

I really like Link Park and this song is a classic 🖤
user119547201:

This song is Enigmatic Feeling by Ling Tosite Sigure. I'm trying to remember which anime I was watching when I Shazam'ed this. I just like the beat.

Enjoy!

Now that my computer is back, the playlist resumes!

For Track 12, I'm going a little more upbeat with Keep On Keeping On by Hiroyuki Sawano's nZk, featuring Mizuki on vocals. This was used several times in the anime series Aldnoah.Zero. I originally saw this series on Netflix and was one of the best I'd seen in a while. It's now streaming on Funimation Now...

Well, my main computer is back and on-line!! Yeah!!!

So. you ask, what was the cause? Well, when I bought the computer last fall, I bought a memory upgrade (from 8GB to 32GB) from a 3rd party OEM supplier for Apple that I had bought from for previous computers. In the end, it turns out the root cause of all my problems was that one...

Well, with my computer woes from last week, I got some good news. They were able to recover all the data. That was my biggest concern (data loss), so I'm very relieved. Now, though, they have to go in and do the diagnostics and try to fix the OS. Hopefully in a day or two I'll have it back!

** major sigh of relief **

felicity:
This is great and I know the sensation!
rlochraven:
@felicity I was scrambling for a couple hours... the place I would normally have taken it isn't taking service calls / drop-offs during the Quarantine.  I was fortunate my 'backup' place WAS.... It will be nice to get it back... I'm using my 10 yr old iMac which is significant slower than my new one....

For those that have been following my Quarantine Playlist, I might have to stop for a few days. I somehow managed to mess up the OS on my main computer and am working to get my old computer back up and running. I am going to try and get a playlist item out today, but please be patient. I may not have my main computer...

suciasuicide:
Oh no! I hope it can all be fixed and sorted out! Im sorry love
rlochraven:
@suciasuicide Fortunately, I found a shop that was still doing repairs.  It took them about a week, but most of that was data recovery (1TB...).  I got the call a couple hours ago it is ready for pickup tomorrow!  YEAH!!

To start the new week, I selected Fallen by EGOIST. If my memory is correct, this song was used in PSYCHO-PASS. EGOIST is also known for her work on the Guilty Crown (where, if you didn't know, she was a member of the Japanese voice cast for the show as well!).

Enjoy!

Has it been 10 days already?! Today's selection comes from the recent simulcast on Funimation Now title ID: Invaded. The song is The Other Side by Miyavi. Pretty cool series and interesting song. It's used as the closing music of the episodes.

Enjoy!
