Fading

All stars and souls are fading,
the light itself a-waning,
their lifeblood spilt, degrading,
e'en heroes seen a-draining.

Re: Burnout Recovery: 9 Week Physical Exercise Program

Burnout Recovery: 9 Week Physical Exercise Program

The following is a possible cure, described to me by a doctor who had education in physical exercise (which most doctors don't have, and thus cannot find anything wrong with burntout patients when taking their tests).

Oldhammer Observation on Later Decades of Codex Threadmill

The 1980s were characterized by a wild plethora of all manner of miniature releases, many of which were niche to boot, and which has later been mined for inspiration or reintroduction by studio people.
