Almost done with Trollope's book. Yeah, I think the small passages where he doesn't speak too kindly about blacks is what keeps the book if not his entire legacy hidden away from public consideration now. To wit:

And I am aware that it is my duty, as it is the duty of us all, to see that no injury be done to him, and, if possible, to assist him in his condition. When I declare that I desire no dealings with the negro, I speak of him in the position in which I now find him, either as a free servant or a slave. In either position he impedes the civilization and the progress of the white man.
There's really no positive way to spin that.

My intended next target is Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds. It seems to be difficult to find this book unabridged and in an electronic format, or at least one that doesn't carry a cost. If I have to resort to getting a print version, it'll probably go on the back burner behind my Civil War reprints.

Songs. Most of my sentiment was altered by my very poor play of Bahram Attack. I kept in sync with the record during the difficult parts, and it was only during the easier measures such as in the beginning where I was radically worse, while elsewhere in the more complex phrases of the chart I kept pace. I don't understand. Regardless, playing a 4 minute 6000 note song was enough to compel me to conclude the day.

Lunar Beat. Extra Mode. Double play. "@" denotes Random chart modifier. All songs are of highest difficulty type unless specified.
First line, by column; song title, EX score percentage and letter grade rank, EX score value and pass/fail, judgment readout (just great, great, good, bad poor), highest combo reached, note count of chart under Extra Mode, original note count of chart, percentage increase of Extra Mode notes over original note count, timestamp.
Second line, by column; pass count / play count, EX score percentage difference from record, EX score value difference from record, judgment readout difference from record (if current play is new record), highest combo reached difference from record (if current play is new record), timestamp of old record (if current play is new record).
