Beneath the Skies

My name is Matt. This is mainly a commonplace book but is not limited to that. I am particularly interested in culture, languages, music (all art, really), and the general mystery of this "feverish and silly world."

I keep listening to the fill that happens around 2:00 minutes over and over and over again.

No really. Watch this.

Ancient Chinese instrument, the sheng, which originated back in 1,100 BC, and it can perfectly replicate the music in Mario.

It even makes the coin noises.

It looks like one of the Monster Hunter hunting horn weapons.

All that glorious vinyl

In any relationship, there will be frightening spells in which your feelings of love dry up. And when that happens you must remember that the essence of marriage is that it is a covenant, a commitment, a promise of future love. So what do you do? You do the acts of love, despite your lack of feeling. You may not feel tender, sympathetic, and eager to please, but in your actions you must BE tender, understanding, forgiving and helpful. And, if you do that, as time goes on you will not only get through the dry spells, but they will become less frequent and deep, and you will become more constant in your feelings. This is what can happen if you decide to love.
