I've been there a few times, but recently Mrs. LMNO and I got a gift certificate there for our anniversary.

We went for the 7-course chef's tasting.

We ate for FOUR HOURS.




It was completely awesome.

Dude, that is awesome.  I wish I could play it at work without getting fired.

Or Kill Me / Re: Steampunk: the new LARP

1. Faust is right.  Kaienne wasn't what I would call a steampunk.

2. I don't have time to listen to the music.  If anyone could tell me, what classifies a music as Steampunk, which is a fashion?

If I were doing it, it would involve Rube Goldberg-type effects, like distortion via a series of torn speaker cones, exposed spring reverbs, and hand-crank-powered electronic equipment (or even better, steam powered!)

The music itself would be bastardized adoptions of secular Victorian-era songs.  Or Rasputina.

I'm looking forward to this.  I did the Hyatt stuff for a while.  The face stuff was really nice, but the flopping over/straightening up stuff didn't go as well.

Sure.  Dinners are usually about $150 per person, if you do it right.

That sounds very cool.

One game I loved was Myst.  Yeah, like everyone else.

For it's time, it was stunning.  No rules, you can't die, interesting puzzles to solve, and great graphics.  I was in lockdown for a week or so.

The best part was that the puzzles were solvable not be gimmickry, but by thought.

I'm gonna borrow from maybe logic, and say that in any given situation, there is a sliding scale of probability whether or not a human will act with what can be observed as "free will".

In some situations, they will react as if following a programmed set of instructions.  In others, they will react as if they were in complete control of their own thoughts and actions.

Only through extended observation can any measure of successful prrediction be made.

he would have control of his emotions and only laugh, cry, rage when he chose too, not when expected.  


That sounds strangely robotic.

...all of which proves that Pope Gregory was a major spaggot.

Who was it that said "It's not wise to learn new things too quickly"?  Or, something to that effect.

There's some truth there.


Also: Rat... Breakfast of Champions Trout for the win!


You mean, "do not understand me too quickly"?  I believe it was André Gide.

Literate Chaotic / Re: Cain: Book Question.

Looks like it.

Thanks!

Just heard about it on NPR - something about a comedy whose theme is that life is too complicated to be contained in a normal story. A piece of postmodernism, before there was even modernism - it was written in 1760.

That resonated with the idea that doing the opposite of something, just because it's popular, isn't actually being independent.

Would you happen to have a pdf of Tristram Shandy?

Just wondering.
