Some of my favorite super special limited edition CD thingys.
Best artbook special edition ever (also my nr.1 album of this year so far)
Big ol' cardboard box filled with over 300 CDs
I also have a few more scattered around the house and in my car.
Obviously not pictured are the dozens of albums I bought on Bandcamp.
Not overly impressive but also not that shabby.
Limited editions are the best!
That "Devil's Blood" from the first image brings to mind this rare gem.
The second image reminds me of a rare Limbonic Art box set I have.
Wasn't that image you posted earlier from your own collection? It looked to be about 1,000 CDs. If I counted all of mine, it would probably be a little less than 2,000.
I don't know why, but HF isn't letting me multi quote
I became a church minister. The church is based on freedom of religion and ideals so it has no fundamental anything. It is based off Christian churches but isn't Christian. It rather, allows and gives power to people, those that our wordly laws in the US today perscribe only to clergymen as a true way of religious freedom no matter the beliefs. And thus, the church has a legal and fundamental standing as a Church in the US that allows and grants it the power to give to people like me, powers under law that allow me to perform marriages (with proper documentation and certifications of course).
I don't know why, but HF isn't letting me quote you without having to manually go back and paste.
Secular church. Interesting...
I've never heard of something like this before. Almost sure that this is not legal here :D
Why would a couple choose one of you folks to get married instead of going through the normal procedure?
Are you allowed to marry off gay couples (that depends on the state, right?)
And why did you join this...eh....church? Is holding marriages really that much fun? Tax benefits?
Oh and the last time I checked, the US really did not seem all that secular to me.
Without a prenuptial agreement, marriage is a horrible idea. For example, the woman can divorce the man at any time for any reason and steal half of his income and property, take the kids, make him pay her way after they've broken up, and so on.
There are definitely more churches in the US than in Europe.
This made me think of Blood-C again. The entire series is essentially a charade until the last two episodes, although there are subtle (and not so subtle) hints interspersed throughout.
This certainly isn't the most esoteric recommendation, but I'm really into Final Fantasy soundtracks. Nearly all styles of music are represented. (And look how many of them there are! It would cost a fortune to collect them all. Some of the rarer box sets sell for hundreds of dollars.)
I'll need to look through them again to find the best folk-ish songs; then again, they probably aren't like the traditional Japanese folk music you're looking for.
Here is an excellent Norwegian folk album.
I asked you earlier if you've read the Soul Eater manga. I don't think you answered.
I knew it! I make cat noises a lot...but only when no one's watching.
One of my former close friends is named Cat. She sort of looks and acts like one. Years after we met, she became a model. One day, she wanted me to help promote her on the Internet. I declined (said I didn't have time for it) and she freaked out and blocked me out of her life! :/
You're making me want to skip sleep and watch more. Terrible idea in the scheme of things, so I won't. Responsibilities are lame sometimes.
Before I head out for the night - I'm wanting to jump on a portable DAC/Amp. The FiiO E17 is most appealing so far. Are there any others that I should consider in the same price range ($100-150ish)?
The FiiO E12 Mont Blanc is the best value, but is just an amp. In my opinion, you'd be better off skipping the portable amp/DAC and saving up for a DAP that meets your needs, since some of them have powerful built-in amps/DACs. Adding another amp/DAC to your portable setup only becomes more important when you get headphones that are harder to drive.
