Speaking of which, isn't there supposed to be a Sailor Moon airing this year?

Before Sailor Moon there was also a magical girl anime/manga called Cutie Honey by Go Nagai, who also pioneered the mecha and ecchi genres.

This is interesting. It's crazy, and that's why I like it.

Now that's cool.

Apparently I won a Geek Out from their CES participation thingamabob, so I'll be getting one of those soon-ish hopefully. Blue Geek Out for normal use, silver Super-Duper Geek Out (once I fill out the survey) for not-sensitive headphones. I'm still curious what the current limits are for the Geek 1000 for driving planar magnetic headphones. The LCD-X is very efficient, but it's a current-limited headphone.

Nah, need more

Saw the first couple of episodes. Very FLCL-ish, but produced by MAdhouse. Doesn't sell it's message as well as FLCL; the characters are very well written but lack dynamics, and the plot isn't weird enough. Still, it's a load of fun to watch, and there's plot depth for the overly-sensitive and self-critical.


 



I had this on a list ages ago and never got around to watching it then lost my list ;( . Thanks for the reminder! I added it to my new (getting depressingly long) list of stuff I'd like to check out.

So much Geek. You aren't going to get too much current out of a usb port, does the geek out have auxiliary power from a wall-wart or something?


I guess we weren't lucky enough to beta test for them.
USB ports can supply up to 500 mA usually. The Geek Out doesn't have its own auxiliary power, but you can amplify the incoming current with transistors and whatnot. Light Harmonic was using the Geek 1000 to drive LCD-XCs at CES, so I'm guessing the current output must be pretty decent since the LCD-XC is more sensitive than the LCD-2.2 and is at a lower impedance (23 ohms is quite low for a full-size headphone). The O2 can supply 200+ mA.

I'm not too worried about being a beta tester honestly. We'll all get it eventually. tongue.gif

From a manufacturing aspect it makes more sense to do one variant at a time to start, but yeah it's kind of lame otherwise.

Ah, it's no big deal, thankfully I still got a decent grade in CS so my chances of getting in aren't completely shot.


Here are some pictures of my K-ON vinyls! More to come when I actually play them.

Yes, the DOF it too shallow. The lighting in my room sucks which requires me to shoot at low f-stops, so deal with it. (Click to show)

So much moe! I'm a little jealous, I totally would have gotten in on that with everyone else if I thought I'd actually listen to them :-P

That looks like it might actually be worth its money :)

Oh and don't pay too much attention to all the photo snobs here.

+1, reminds me of vacationing in China. The tourist attractions are completely overflowing with people and their stupid canons, and their precise settings. You can't even walk a step without being called out for photo bombing. 

 

I swear one of these days, I'm gonna let one of em take a nice close up of my finger.
