“I’m a lot more comfortable doing instrumental music,” explains Jim Guthrie. “I feel like I can say more without words.” After getting his start in the Canadian indie rock scene, Guthrie has spent the last few years intimately tied to the worlds of film and gaming creating music for games like Sword & Sworcery and Sound Shapes and documentaries including Indie Game: The Movie and more recently The Manor. But a decade after his last solo record came out, he’s returning to his roots with a new album appropriately dubbed Takes Time. “Like anything that’s worth anything,” he tells The Verge, “some things just take time. And if you can accept that it makes living a whole lot easier.”
As many of you know, I recently purchased an Uruk-Hai scimitar.
Well let me tell you, it was quite the pragmatic purchase. It has endless uses in my morning routine.
Such as making the bed:
Getting things off high shelves:
Reaching the remote when it’s too far away:
And assisting me when I ran out of toilet paper:
I don’t know how I survived life without it.
No comment necessary.
You are my hero.
This is a nice visual glossary of all the fittings that a blade go into when creating a katana. I have studied kenjutsu and used katana’s for a number of years and never knew the proper names for all these parts. Thanks to this I know them now and hopefully this will be helpful to others who want to learn about these parts as well.

So my dad hurt is back recently and we bought him a cane from walmart. He didn’t like to use it because it had a sparkly blue marble pattern on it, and he deemed it too feminine.
When I came home, I was cleaning the living room, when I found this wooden cane hidden under the coffee table. At first, I was like “Why look at this fine looking cane he made for himself!” My dad enjoys hand-crafting a lot of things, so I wasn’t entirely suprised.
Until, I realized that he hid a bayonet inside.
I swear to god, my father is out to kill everybody.
Also, he decorates our living room wall with his antique katanas and army knives.
Damn, I could need a cane like that. But they are forbidden in Germany :(.
