[Poem]The Raven by Allan Poe

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
"'Tis some visitor," I muttered, "tapping at my chamber door —
Only this, and nothing more."


Ah, distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December,
And each separate dying ember wrought its ghost upon the floor.
Eagerly I wished the morrow; — vainly I had sought to borrow
From my books surcease of sorrow — sorrow for the lost Lenore —
For the rare and radiant maiden whom the angels name Lenore —
Nameless here for evermore.

And the silken sad uncertain rustling of each purple curtain
Thrilled me — filled me with fantastic terrors never felt before;
So that now, to still the beating of my heart, I stood repeating,
"'Tis some visitor entreating entrance at my chamber door —
Some late visitor entreating entrance at my chamber door; —
This it is, and nothing more."

Presently my soul grew stronger; hesitating then no longer,
"Sir," said I, "or Madam, truly your forgiveness I implore;
But the fact is I was napping, and so gently you came rapping,
And so faintly you came tapping, tapping at my chamber door,
That I scarce was sure I heard you"— here I opened wide the door; —
Darkness there, and nothing more.

Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there wondering, fearing,
Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before;
But the silence was unbroken, and the stillness gave no token,
And the only word there spoken was the whispered word, "Lenore?"
This I whispered, and an echo murmured back the word, "Lenore!" —
Merely this, and nothing more.

Back into the chamber turning, all my soul within me burning,
Soon again I heard a tapping somewhat louder than before.
"Surely," said I, "surely that is something at my window lattice:
Let me see, then, what thereat is, and this mystery explore —
Let my heart be still a moment and this mystery explore; —
'Tis the wind and nothing more."

Open here I flung the shutter, when, with many a flirt and flutter,
In there stepped a stately raven of the saintly days of yore;
Not the least obeisance made he; not a minute stopped or stayed he;
But, with mien of lord or lady, perched above my chamber door —
Perched upon a bust of Pallas just above my chamber door —
Perched, and sat, and nothing more.

Then this ebony bird beguiling my sad fancy into smiling,
By the grave and stern decorum of the countenance it wore.
"Though thy crest be shorn and shaven, thou," I said, "art sure no craven,
Ghastly grim and ancient raven wandering from the Nightly shore —
Tell me what thy lordly name is on the Night's Plutonian shore!"
Quoth the Raven, "Nevermore."

Much I marveled this ungainly fowl to hear discourse so plainly,
Though its answer little meaning— little relevancy bore;
For we cannot help agreeing that no living human being
Ever yet was blest with seeing bird above his chamber door —
Bird or beast upon the sculptured bust above his chamber door,
With such name as "Nevermore."

But the raven, sitting lonely on the placid bust, spoke only
That one word, as if his soul in that one word he did outpour.
Nothing further then he uttered— not a feather then he fluttered —
Till I scarcely more than muttered, "other friends have flown before —
On the morrow he will leave me, as my hopes have flown before."
Then the bird said, "Nevermore."

Startled at the stillness broken by reply so aptly spoken,
"Doubtless," said I, "what it utters is its only stock and store,
Caught from some unhappy master whom unmerciful Disaster
Followed fast and followed faster till his songs one burden bore —
Till the dirges of his Hope that melancholy burden bore
Of 'Never — nevermore'."

But the Raven still beguiling all my sad soul into smiling,
Straight I wheeled a cushioned seat in front of bird, and bust and door;
Then upon the velvet sinking, I betook myself to linking
Fancy unto fancy, thinking what this ominous bird of yore —
What this grim, ungainly, ghastly, gaunt and ominous bird of yore
Meant in croaking "Nevermore."

This I sat engaged in guessing, but no syllable expressing
To the fowl whose fiery eyes now burned into my bosom's core;
This and more I sat divining, with my head at ease reclining
On the cushion's velvet lining that the lamplight gloated o'er,
But whose velvet violet lining with the lamplight gloating o'er,
She shall press, ah, nevermore!

Then methought the air grew denser, perfumed from an unseen censer
Swung by Seraphim whose footfalls tinkled on the tufted floor.
"Wretch," I cried, "thy God hath lent thee — by these angels he hath sent thee
Respite — respite and nepenthe, from thy memories of Lenore
Quaff, oh quaff this kind nepenthe and forget this lost Lenore!"
Quoth the Raven, "Nevermore."

"Prophet!" said I, "thing of evil! — prophet still, if bird or devil! —
Whether Tempter sent, or whether tempest tossed thee here ashore,
Desolate yet all undaunted, on this desert land enchanted —
On this home by horror haunted— tell me truly, I implore —
Is there — is there balm in Gilead? — tell me — tell me, I implore!"
Quoth the Raven, "Nevermore."

"Prophet!" said I, "thing of evil — prophet still, if bird or devil!
By that Heaven that bends above us — by that God we both adore -
Tell this soul with sorrow laden if, within the distant Aidenn,
It shall clasp a sainted maiden whom the angels name Lenore -
Clasp a rare and radiant maiden whom the angels name Lenore."
Quoth the Raven, "Nevermore."

"Be that word our sign in parting, bird or fiend," I shrieked, upstarting —
"Get thee back into the tempest and the Night's Plutonian shore!
Leave no black plume as a token of that lie thy soul hath spoken!
Leave my loneliness unbroken!— quit the bust above my door!
Take thy beak from out my heart, and take thy form from off my door!"
Quoth the Raven, "Nevermore."

And the Raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting
On the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door;
And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon's that is dreaming,
And the lamplight o'er him streaming throws his shadow on the floor;
And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor
Shall be lifted — nevermore!

[PC]兩岸猿聲啼不住,我要成為海賊王﹣猴島新作即將上市!

談到猴子跟海盜,現在的人可能馬上想到的就是One Piece的蒙其.D.魯夫,然而對於經歷過電腦冒險遊戲黃金時代的玩家,絕對忘不了那個膽小卻又夢想成為海盜的倒霉鬼﹣蓋布許.翠普伍茲。上一代《逃出猴島》已經是9年前的事,如今,猴島最新作《Tales of Monkey Island》又要回來笑掉你的大牙!

經過了九年的歲月,這次遊戲帶來全新的3D動畫引擎!

Tales of Monkey Island
等等,我說了“全新”兩個字嗎?

這畫面看起來一點都不新呀!

總之先來回顧一下過去的作品:



The Secret of Monke Island

LeChuck's Revenge
一、二代都是點陣圖

Guybrush 1Guybrush 2

The Curse of Monkey Island
三代是用卡通畫風

Guybrush 3

Escape from Monkey Island
四代開始用3D引擎,醜爆了

Guybrush 4

最後是五代的人設,

Guybrush 5
咦,你的鳥窩頭呢?

每一代的人設都讓玩家大吃一驚,已然變成特色了。還我那個一看就覺得很沒用的蓋布許呀!

Guybrush Threepwood Cosplay------------->Guybrush Threepwood?
要花多少錢才可以整型成右邊那樣!?

負責新作的製作團隊Telltale Games裡許多人都曾經參與過猴島系列的製作,包括促生猴島的領隊Dave Grossman。同時幫男女主角配音的配音員是過去的老卡司Dominic Armato和Alexandra Boyd。故事將發生在四代故事的數年後,一共分為五章,第一章會在2009/7/7發行,每月發行一章。平台包括PC和Wiiware!

除了新作之外,也會在PC及Xbox Live Arcade推出第一代的復刻版,時間預定是2009夏季。

想不到你居然有耐心看到這裡!為了獎勵你,最後來看看五代的預告片吧!


天呀!這個是9年前的動畫吧!真可怕!

[Youtube]I'm Batman

別人推薦的影集The Big Bang Theory(宅男行不行)實在太好笑了。以我記得的影集相同類型的只有The 3rd Rock(外星人報到)。內容是講四個宅男與一個普通女生相處的故事。有點像是Friends,可是笑點跟漫畫、科幻影集(Star Trek最多)有關,所以至少要有一些粗淺的認識看起來才有趣。如果你對這些題材都有興趣的話,不要懷疑去找來看就對了。像這個Sheldon學Batman Begins講話的橋段就好好笑喔。





另外看看Dean的Batman
