I’ve spent the last fifteen years of my life slowly amassing a ludicrously expansive collection of inspirational instrumental music to back the epic fantasy novel that’s always being written in the back of my mind. So much so that when I sat down and decided to make a “Swashbuckling Fantasy Music” playlist, I had to split it into four parts. Here for your listening pleasure is Part 3!
If you play D&D, or if you’re writing a sprawling genre saga, or if you just really, really like listening to beautiful soundtrack-style music, I made this playlist for you.

EPIC INSPIRATION FANTASY PLAYLIST ❧ ACT III: AUTUMN
“You expected to be sad in the fall. Part of you died each year when the leaves fell from the trees and their branches were bare against the wind and the cold, wintery light.” - Ernest Hemmingway
Sample Songs: Kissing in the Rain, Shadow of Doubt, Russian Dervish

Here’s the demo version of the song me and Maddy did for last night’s Adventure Time!

The chords are B flat, E flat, F, B flat 

To make it easier, on guitar I play it with a Capo on the 1st fret and the chords A, D, E, A

This version was played on a ukulele tuned down a step (to F, B flat, D, G) — and the chords played as C, F, G, C

Here’s the lyrics:

Bb

Where are you

Eb

little brother

F

are you happy

Bb

or do you feel weird

Bb

have you changed a lot

Eb 

or not

F                                                   Bb

are you ever gonna come back here?

Bb                                     Eb

I shouldn’t have been so hasty

F                                 Bb

You were just a little baby

Bb                     Eb

Or maybe you weren’t

F                                           Bb

I’m not really sure how little brothers work

Bb                    Eb

You were the first friend

F           Bb

I ever had

Bb                  Eb

No one can compare

F                                             Bb

Together we could probably fight a bear

Bb                                        Eb

So if you’re ever sad slash lonely

F

Don’t be

Bb

Cause I’ll be

Bb                          Eb

Right here next to you 

F                                                                 Bb

Cause that’s what big/little brothers are supposed to do

My fiancé and i wrote the Little Brother song for Adventure Time yesterday, here is the demo used for the pitch- it was super fun because we both have little brothers, so we used them as inspiration! 

Note: i am not a singer, nor do i claim to be!!!!!

The most talented friends!!!!!

"…I started hating it in all the uncritical ways I roll my eyes at when people hate a game without thinking why. It was too pretentious. I didn’t get it. It’s just some arty bullshit. My mind even flirted, briefly, with the notion that it wasn’t even really a game at all. Mountain was turning me into the kind of videogame player I hate, and I loathed it all the more for it.”

Excellent article on Mountain, vidyas, art, and formalism.

oh man this is so excellent, this is so… pure late-gen nintendo chiptune magic :O

I know you fellow .01%ers tend to dismiss this kind of argument; I’ve had many of you tell me to my face I’m completely bonkers. And yes, I know there are many of you who are convinced that because you saw a poor kid with an iPhone that one time, inequality is a fiction. Here’s what I say to you: You’re living in a dream world. What everyone wants to believe is that when things reach a tipping point and go from being merely crappy for the masses to dangerous and socially destabilizing, that we’re somehow going to know about that shift ahead of time. Any student of history knows that’s not the way it happens. Revolutions, like bankruptcies, come gradually, and then suddenly. One day, somebody sets himself on fire, then thousands of people are in the streets, and before you know it, the country is burning. And then there’s no time for us to get to the airport and jump on our Gulfstream Vs and fly to New Zealand. That’s the way it always happens. If inequality keeps rising as it has been, eventually it will happen. We will not be able to predict when, and it will be terrible—for everybody. But especially for us.

Now that I’m an adult, describing Sailor Moon is a little embarrassing… but here’s the deal: Sailor Moon is a magical girl who goes to middle school by day and uses miraculous powers to battle evildoers from outer space by night. Everything about her is feminine, from her pleated mini skirt to the sparkling backdrop of her transformation sequence. She is also a clumsy gluttonous crybaby, an F-student, and as boy-crazy as a cat in heat throughout the first season. Despite all of her personal shortcomings, she dedicates her life to fighting for, as she puts it, “love and justice.”

This was a world where girls were fighters. Where they could eat all the food they wanted. Where they could cry.

Like, “what if, instead of classic inspirational quotes, Zen Pencils made dynamic comics around dril tweets?”

Chiune Sugihara. This man saved 6000 Jews. He was a Japanese diplomat in Lithuania. When the Nazis began rounding up Jews, Sugihara risked his life to start issuing unlawful travel visas to Jews. He hand-wrote them 18 hrs a day. The day his consulate closed and he had to evacuate, witnesses claim he was STILL writing visas and throwing from the train as he pulled away. He saved 6000 lives. The world didn’t know what he’d done until Israel honored him in 1985, the year before he died.

Why can’t we have a movie about him?

He was often called “Sempo”, an alternative reading of the characters of his first name, as that was easier for Westerners to pronounce.
His wife, Yukiko, was also a part of this; she is often credited with suggesting the plan. The Sugihara family was held in a Soviet POW camp for 18 months until the end of the war; within a year of returning home, Sugihara was asked to resign - officially due to downsizing, but most likely because the government disagreed with his actions.
He didn’t simply grant visas - he granted visas against direct orders, after attempting three times to receive permission from the Japanese Foreign Ministry and being turned down each time. He did not “misread” orders; he was in direct violation of them, with the encouragement and support of his wife.
He was honoured as Righteous Among the Nations in 1985, a year before he died in Kamakura; he and his descendants have also been granted permanent Israeli citizenship. He was also posthumously awarded the Life Saving Cross of Lithuania (1993); Commander’s Cross Order of Merit of the Republic of Poland (1996); and the Commander’s Cross with Star of the Order of Polonia Restituta (2007). Though not canonized, some Eastern Orthodox Christians recognize him as a saint.
Sugihara was born in Gifu on the first day of 1900, January 1. He achieved top marks in his schooling; his father wanted him to become a physician, but Sugihara wished to pursue learning English. He deliberately failed the exam by writing only his name and then entered Waseda, where he majored in English. He joined the Foreign Ministry after graduation and worked in the Manchurian Foreign Office in Harbin (where he learned Russian and German; he also converted to the Eastern Orthodox Church during this time). He resigned his post in protest over how the Japanese government treated the local Chinese citizens. He eventually married Yukiko Kikuchi, who would suggest and encourage his acts in Lithuania; they had four sons together. Chiune Sugihara passed away July 31, 1986, at the age of 86. Until her own passing in 2008, Yukiko continued as an ambassador of his legacy.
It is estimated that the Sugiharas saved between 6,000-10,000 Lithuanian and Polish Jewish people.

Bad. Asses.
