    Thank-you! In order to brighten everyone's day (or at least try to), I thought I would share my favorite piece of Christmas music. I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I do.

      Nordic Chamber Choir - O Magnum Mysterium (M. Lauridsen) - YouTube
      Very nice. I envisage that you could reproduce that as an atmospheric piece on a synthesizer using choir and string sounds etc. It's a very eclectic piece to be done with the human voice that lends itself to that.

      A guy called Eno way back (formerly of Roxy Music) ventured into synth soundscapes in later years. This short piece below reminds me of what you posted. this has been extended to an hour.

    I am going to wish you and everyone else a Merry Christmas, and the ethnic minorities can run for cover.

    Christmas party tonight at gym I go to but since I recently gave up drinking and coffee ...so far so good hahaha I am not too thrilled to attend.

    One week to go amazing. It is the New Year I am so focused on..it is probably the best feeling I had of a New Year and New Era since 12 years ago.

    That one was seeing an event I never thought I would see in my life time.

    This one is like a huge weight lifted and apocalypse avoided.

          Should be, l am sick of Zelda, (Wii U) and even clocking up the horses with bomb arrows.

          But Super Mario, is the deciding factor, (if l cannot get past a tough puzzle l will).

            I want one of those race car driver /space shuttle captain type Gaming Chairs!
            I hear they work for marketing all day too.

              Sorry to hear that, (l am nervous of any chair that plugs in).

              Sold my Wii U, in, etc, and got the Nintendo Lite, with the Zelda, (whatever the new one) and killing off 100 hobgoblins at once,...gold.

              But this one even though more impressive graphics, has invisible barriers than previously.

              But l am enjoying it, and hopefully the next will be more open world.

                I have heard about games where they have entire eco systems paying for real estate and goods in virtual outer space etc.

                When I did play it was mostly solo stuff like my fav vacation resort SILENT HILL or my time as Solid Snake (Metal Gear)

                As far as chairs go I am sure they have a line with all the bells and whistles and something with the basics like lumbar and awesome visual design options.

                I am surprised Virtual Reality Headsets did not catch on like anticipated.

                Probably some health related liability issues in there somewhere.

                  There is a game for the Switch, that is open world and is more legends and Wizard/zombie type game, that apparently is an upgrade or two of previous incarnations, (which sucks if you played it previously, but since l haven't it might be worth considering).

                  VR is impressive now days, but is never as good as look at the tv formats, (apart from the Playstation 5 one, that may put it on par with conventional systems).

                  PS5 has serious power, and can handle 4k, (and l think 8, without checking) so when it comes out this year, (rumored) it should be impressive....

        Have you considered getting a gaming tablet instead? You may have to import but for around £100 with all the retro games you can ask for and expandable memory I'm never without one. Have 2 at the moment - GPD and JXD.

        I prefer the GPD. Build quality and system speed was compared very favorably to a similar Samsung tablet by one pundit.

        I think everyone should have one. There are cheaper gaming tablets on Amazon and some of the smaller ones are really good for around £40. I have bought a few as presents. Best avoid some on eBay which aren't quite up to scratch. You need the buttons integrated into the tablet.

    It is a unique feeling when Christmas comes around and you may be in a financially challenged Country.

    Your heart wants to help everyone you know you can't.

    My used Iphone crashed and would not power on so I took it to a good repair shop.

    He took out some parts and put them back in...

    But no success.

    They just happen to have another used Iphone that was technically an upgrade for me.... They closed me. I am happy.

    The next day low and behold the older Iphone began working perfectly!

    I may have had too many apps for that level of system upgrade level.

    This newer one has most current update from Apple. And I notice some Apps like my Online Banking App would not let me get the latest version unless I got the latest apple software release...I was trapped.

    So I had two used Iphones.

    On my way to and from the gym I sometimes get some fresh fruit, veggies, or peanuts from this young street vendor.

    I thought maybe I will meet a Future GF that needs a cell phone but said nope let's deal with the right now...

    So I gifted that young person the older Iphone and his facial response was the best feeling.

    If you have any old or new or just stuff you have that may not be of value to you it may be of value to someone else....let it go.

    Now at the same time, when you see me walking down the road people are so quick to judge us just based on what they see in a matter of secs and I just do not look like the type that does alot of things that I actually do.

    We have to dismiss that. F. em. Those that do not know our real nature who cares.

    As long as we are content with who we are.

    "Safe" Holidays.

    Oh...I have to give a shout out to Bezos "EX" Wife hahaha she is sending emails so ridiculous that it is ending up in the spam folders like Royalty Scams.

    One Charity did not know she sent them a confirmation email that she was gifting them 10 Million dollars because it ended up in spam.

    Noo, more into Zelda and Super Mario, (latest versions). Nintendo has bought out a threesome, or the first mario, for the 64, and others, but l have played them all, so couldn't be bothered.

    Nintendo SL, has one Super Mario, one Pre, Zelda and another in the works, which we will be seeing sometime next year, but l am stuck with Mario for the Wii U, so unless l can get through that l will upgrade, (looked at a YT walk through and l am reasonably sure l have made it harder and can get through it).
