Happy Mother's Day!

If you're a mother.  If not, then still, happy Mother's Day, but... differently.

Okay, just a warning, this post will have almost nothing related to Zelda, so if you don't like that kind of stuff, then you might just want to skip it.  Sorry, but there's not really much going on right now, Zelda-wise.  I'd ask that you still read this, though, because it would make me happy.  :3

So, first of all, I got one of my friends into Zelda.  Well, kind of.  More just into ALttP, and it's on his computer, but still, it's a start.  He really doesn't know much, though.  He still sometimes calls Link Zelda, and he doesn't know that Link's name is Link, and he calls Rupees "Rubels".  But whatever, it's a start.

Speaking of ALttP, I'm now in the Ice Palace, the 5th palace in the Dark World.  Not much else to say, except for the fact that I'm really stuck.

OK, I lied, there is much else to say.  There's this part in the Ice Palace where there's this hole in the middle of the room.  OK?  So, there's blue pillars and orange pillars, and you can hit crystal balls to change which color pillars are up vs. down.  So, there's blue pillars blocking the hole, and you can only get to the hole from the left side of the room.  The only other way out is going through the top of the room, so you do.

You eventually come across one of those crystal balls, and you hit it to lower the blue pillars, so you backtrack and come from the top of the room with the hole, and the blue pillars blocking it are down.  But there are orange pillars dividing the room in half, and you're on the right side of the room, and the only way to go down the hole is from the left.  Now, you can take the very, very long way, and go all the way back through the dungeon to get to the left side of the room, but somewhere in your travels to get there, you had to hit another crystal ball, thus raising the blue pillars again.  So I can't get down that stupid hole.  And I've gone almost everywhere else.  So I'm pretty confused.

Oops, looks like I lied again, this post did have some Zelda-related stuff.  Just no real news.

Anyway, on to the non-Zelda things:

So, if you didn't know, I play several musical instruments.  And one of them is French horn.  And since today's Mother's Day, I made this recording at my dad's friend's house of Amazing Grace for my mom's present.

It's edited to have echo and stuff, but other than that it's just me.  I put the melody and the harmony (main part and 2nd part) on top of each other.  ^^

Oh, and if you're listening with headphones, put both in, because there are different parts in each ear.  Whatever.  Here it is. ---------->  |

Yeah.  Did you like it?  Tell me in the comments!  ^^

So, thanks for reading, and sorry if this post was kind of boring, I couldn't think of anything else.  Bye! :)

  2. Happy mother's day, even though I'm late with saying that. It's really sweet that you recorded that song for her, and it's sounds really good ^^ I bet she loved it. I bought my mom a present and her favorite chocolate, and she gave everybody at home a list with chores in return, so I've been busy that day, haha.

    Your friend is further than mine, I'm the only one of my friends who likes Zelda, and I don't know nice people in my neighborhood who play it. So that's probably why I visit Zelda websites regulary. ;) However playing on the wii with my friends is always fun, which we do quite often. (Playing wii party with them is genius xD Or Mario) But they don't play much apart from that. Maybe I should force them to play Battle quest ^^
    Anyway good luck with ALTTP, that sounds like a rather confusing puzzle.

  3. That was really cool that you did that for your mom :) I bet she loved it!

    Yeah, none of my friends play Zelda :( They all know that I love Zelda, but they don't want to play it. Sometimes they watch me play, which is a small step towards loving it I guess :) I'm trying hard to get them into it, but they don't really like video games in general. I guess that kind of makes sense since they're all girls, but I'm a girl and I LOVE video games! :) I don't think there's anything wrong with that but some people do :/

    Anyways, great post! Have a good week! Only less than three weeks of school left for me! :D
