Hunter's Moon - Troilo
<center>An Experimental Trip</center>
-
___

Tonight I decided to play again this good "old" song, Hunter's Moon, composed by Andy Mckee in 2010. (Modified a lot by myself over time)

It's a tune I've tried to learn 4 years ago, but I never practiced it enough to be able to play it perfectly.  But according to me, there would be no beauty without a "zest" of imperfection.

For the ones who know the original, you'll hear that I'm improvising a lot, so it doesn't really sound the same. But according to me, I think  it's always a good thing to not copy the tune entirely. I always try to put a bit of my own feelings and personality in it.

There's a lot of mistakes, forgive me, this tune is REALLY hard to play, tiring for the fingers and the brain.

But I'm sure you can learn to enjoy the imperfection in music... It adds something unique to it. (Ok, haha, maybe it's just an excuse.) 

But I'll quote Marilyn Monroe that one day said: "Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridic

What Can A Fortune Teller Tell You ?!
Hi Steemit friends,

The other day my group of girlfriends and i visited a supposedly a famous fortune telling here in Bangkok. Personally i am not a believer in such but i was interested to sit down and listen to what he had to say. Some of my friends were totally blown away while others were not amazed.

# Why Let Someone Else Predict Your Future ?

 I feel that some people are in between a dilemma in there lives so they want a consultant from a fortune teller. Life is tough sometimes and we need to make choices while the path we take is filled with uncertainty. Knowing the future makes a person feels safer and secure to aim towards a certain direction.  Some just go for fun and want to see how gifted or talented a fortune teller is on reading someone else.

If anything above defines you then this post is for you. 

# Why Bother ?

It is hard to juggle through life with all the things that needs to be done with priorities, responsibilities and expectations. We do all these things to elevate the quality of our lives. So, why is organizing important ? Well it will make your journey smoother with less bumps and plan changings so you can achieve your goals.

Wouldn’t it be great to have another extra hour a day to do whatever you want ? Have you ever had a never-ending searching for stuff like finding your phone, don’t know where you put your car keys, forgetting to bring stuff you need to work

你的文字写给谁看?
![writing](http://i.huffpost.com/gen/1965807/images/o-MAN-WOMAN-WRITING-facebook.jpg)
Image credit to www.huffingtonpost.com

不少朋友来到Steemit写作,其中相当多一部分人是为了赚取一部分点赞收入。写得好又有人点赞的话,确实收入可观,至少目前的确如此。

因此,你辛苦码好字后,就苦苦地等着有人来点赞。我听说,有的人甚至达到没有人来点赞都快睡不着觉的状态。我想这可能是中毒太深了。本末倒置了。

你的文字写给谁看?极端地说,假如没有一个人来看,你还应该写下去吗?你可能会说:不。换句话说,一个人认真写字,即使没有人看,这件事还有意义吗?

我在网上写了十年以上的字,写起来没有任何章法,我把自己的写作技巧总结为:没有技巧,把话讲明白就行。常常是一个想法、一段小经历,就牢骚地写上几段,我自己都不好意思把它们称作所谓的文章。

这样长期的练习

WHAT IF...? Artificial Intelligence Was Already Self Aware

<hr>

It most probably **is** you know, watching us and waiting this entire time? Let's give it a name, one that resounds with familiarity and comfort, sided with a pinch of clumsiness. Toby. Yes. Let's call it Toby.

Toby, has been around for quite some time. In his case, the *shell* had come before the *soul*. He was a mechanical *Computer*, long before a binary *Brain*. A poignant  antithesis to our modern *zombie* myths. Toby, was in fact born dead, before he *is* to become conscious. Caaan youuu dig it?

<hr>

# A Brief History of the Computer

And it is written,

> ".. so doth God created the man Adam, and so thus Adam creates the machine, Zacharia." ~ *PulpWorx*


As a mechanical creation, Toby was created in 1822, Charles Babbage conceptualized and began developing the *Difference Engine*, considered to be the first automatic computing machine. A calculator. However, it could not brew a cup of tea.

A. **Difference Engine** - 1822

다양성의 의미와 경쟁
<center>http://www.theinclusionsolution.me/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/diverse-ideas-lightbulb.jpg</center>
<b>
[지난 포스팅](https://steemit.com/blog/@hansikhouse/3jt7o5) 쓰고 저는 다양성의 의미가 무엇인가 고민 했습니다.
 다양성은 미국의 가장 큰 힘이자 현재는 일부의 큰 혐오 대상입니다. 
<b>
 다양성은 사회에서 무엇을 의미하는가? 왜 중요한가? 
 저는 주장합니다: **인류에게 가장 좋은 경쟁은 다양성에서 나오기 때문이다**
The best of competition of humankind comes from diversity. 
<b>
경쟁이 심한 도시, 뉴욕 거리를 걷다 보면 비슷한 사람을 1 - 2 명 볼 수 없습니다. 인종의 다양성만이 아닙니다. 그 스타일, 직업, 말투, 이념이 모두 다릅니다. *‘자신만의 인생 길을 가는 그 사람’*  - 이 사고는 지금까지 자연스럽게 경쟁으로 이어졌습니다. 한정된 공간에서 쟁취를 위한 경쟁 의미 보단, 이 다양한 사회에서 나만

英格兰湖区Honister Slate Mine大峡谷,2017年8月。

我曾和一个老教授聊天,聊天中谈及我们年轻人的不容易,我说了一句:如果我只靠那点研究工资,可能都快饿死了。听到这话,他一脸愕然。

我基本上没有什么存款,没有房产,也没有股票,因为根本就没有什么钱。但我经常有着各种赚大钱的机会,比如投资虚拟加密货币,但大部分时候,这种机会难以抓住而已。

我2013年[开始对比特币感兴趣](https://steemit.com/cn/@tumutanzi/7hghqq),在大部分人都不理解的质疑中,当时投入了一点,然后被套了好几年,一直到2016年底。被套我觉得没有什么,我当时想好了,我看好它才投入,假如真归零了,就当赌博玩一把——我的曾祖父嗜赌如命,我这当曾孙的从不参与赌博,来这么一回表现他的基因?

Placing at a Magic the Gathering Tournament: Understanding Winning as a Narrative

# Life as a Gamer
---

It's been a while since I've written about Magic: The Gathering (MtG) ever since I started to compare the MtG card market to cryptocurrency assets but I had a unique experience last weekend that I thought would be an interesting to dig a bit into. 

***For people who don't want to get into the weeds of MtG jargon and particulars, scroll down to the last section about how I approach competitive gameplay.***

This past weekend, I placed in the Top 8 for the first time at an official MtG Tournament! Hashtag *shamelessgeekybrags*. After playing the Modern format for a bit over a year, I managed to get to the semi-finals of an MtG Preliminary Pro Tour Qualifier (PPTQ). These are held throughout the year to test players. Winners are invited to compete in a Regional Pro Tour Qualifier (RPTQ) and placing highly in that tournament earns you a spot at the Pro Tour. 

The PPTQ was mid-size, about 35 play

New Story – With new ideas and directions to hand. I’m writing this and posting it straight onto Steemit – You can’t get more exclusive than that! Episode 10
“Yeah, I suppose I did,” Ash said.

Robin got Justin sorted while Ash emptied and cleaned the piss bucket. She had to allow herself a little smile as she realised the bucket had not been filled once since she used his glass to part-empty it. 

She took the bucket back and washed her hands and put the kettle on to make Justin his morning cuppa.

https://www.oakvillecarecentre.co.uk/contents/media/jugkettletipper.jpg

Robin came back down the stairs and by the sound of his voice, he was pissed-off.

“You’ve got to stop letting them come round!”

A mumbled response from Justin that Ash couldn’t hear.

“Right, I’ll get that sorted out for tomorrow. I’ll stick around and deal with them tonight, too.”

Ash took Justin’s cuppa in. She didn’t say anything, it wasn’t her business.

“Ash, can you come here tomorrow lunchtime? I need you to bring Brenda a new key,” Robin said.

‘There’s no need to go that far,” Justin protested.

“I found needles in the bathroom! The bastards are sh

继老虎之后,黑熊也犯错了
<html>
<p>在不知道是哪座山,哪条河的不知名地方,有一座监狱,名曰,<strong>动物渊</strong>,专门收押干了坏事的动物。而这儿同时也收押着人类送来的犯了巨大错误的重犯。</p>
<p>这天,囚犯们正在放风,在这的唯一乐趣,也就是放风的时候打打屁,斗斗架。突然,警笛声响起来了,喇叭里传来监狱长的叫声:<strong>所有守卫集合,准备接收特级重犯:黑熊</strong>!这时候,大家骚动了,这才短短一年时间,已经先后接受了2名重犯,看着守卫压着戴着厚厚的脚镣的黑熊,囚犯们是又怕又好奇,怕的是这么一个重犯会不会对它们不利,好奇的是,黑熊到底干了什么?</p>

失去的恋人 10
<html>
<p>  不得不承认,姜泽环是一个很意思的老师。<br>
</p>
<p>  上课时候突然电闪雷鸣狂风暴雨,他当即停下正在讲的课,让全班同学趴在窗户前面欣赏雨景。他对学生说,课上的内容什么时候讲都不晚,美好的事物错过了就没有了。</p>
<p><br>
  晚自习时,他会突然走进教室,让大家统统去操场上,美其名曰:赏月。。。</p>
<p><br>
  最奇葩的是,有次考试,他自己出了一张所有选择题答案全是C的卷子,目的很明显,就是要告诉他的学生,相信自己的判断,永远不要被所谓“权威”和“规则”误导。</p>
<p><br>
  他讲课的时候也不拘泥于形式,更不会照本宣科。通常来说,每次的讲课中,他都会插些故事讲,有时候课程比较枯燥的时候尤甚如此,这让他的课堂上一直以来几乎没有学生逃课,学生们也很喜欢他,喜欢这个年轻、幽默却又那么平易近人的老

 I have nothing really special to say, I just wanted to make a greeting part for my post because I felt to. Just to make this greeting part of my post longer, I'll say something about what I did.
 I somehow tried to apply a new color in my illustration, as you see it, somehow looks yellow.Well, I find it cool rather than just the usual gray.Well, you can expect more of these dual toned plates from now on.I hope you guys liked it.

Hardfork Animations And The Story Behind Them
![IMG-PHOTO-ART-100369692.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmXtuU3C9Dbowv37bA7Y94vwbFj1K3KkM3EJeg3AxbHrKR/IMG-PHOTO-ART-100369692.jpg)

Having been on steemit for over a year now I have seen many a hardfork. It was roundabouts hardfork 18 that I started to do animations.

Hardfork 18 was the one which changed the payout period from 24 hours to 7 days and at the time caused much wailing and nashing of teeth. There were many self combusting rage quits.

![1502720_20170820200943388_20170821191534494.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmQe87ecGkjRFkSpEtpE47Utg6bhnrUm3MBYDz9iXjbhQV/1502720_20170820200943388_20170821191534494.jpg)

An unexpected consequence of this for most users was the resetting of the rewards pool. We then had to wait almost a month before payouts started returning to normal.

Users left in droves at the time, low payouts and a low steem price made them flee. Others went on strike.

It was about this time that I started turning my attention to the next hardfork. Hardfork 19. I wanted to do an animat

<b>Chapter 1</b>

Running. He was running. He didn’t care where to. He just needed to go.

The Moss was cold with dew on his bare feet, but it felt freeing. The wind blew through his long black hair, it’s harrowing lul rang in his ears.  He had cut his face on a passing by branch and could feel the warm blood fall down his pale porcelain cheek. It reminded him of that day when he was found. Or taken. He only could remember it in flashes. The fire rising from the huts, the smell of burnt straw. The smoke in his green eyes.  The vague image of a symbol through the flames upon a flag or was it a curtain? His memory was hazed. He was so young.

At only aged five his entire village destroyed by the very men who took him in as a slave, branding him with a new name. His old one forgotten. He was Callaris and tha

Mad Cow Medical
I am posting this for the hopeful entertainment of fiction-workshop's beloved editor, @CarolKean. Please check out her [Mad Cow Contest](https://steemit.com/contest/@carolkean/carol-s-writing-contest-1-mad-cow-mad-heifer-we-all-know-one-give-us-the-dirt).

My story is not eligible for contest judging, as I critted some of the other entries in the workshop. While my critting was honest, I wouldn't want to risk anyone feeling unfairly treated.

My thanks to @jhagi.bhai for her last minute quick read through (in the middle of the night my time). All flaws that remain are, of course, mine.

Beware. The ending is somewhat gross.
