Behold.....a bunch of CDs!

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.
 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v80), quality = 80

 

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 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...

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.

As for why? Well, I started using it in real life. My speech patterns are reflected in the way I type so naturally I started using it when talking to friends on FB or LoL and on head-fi too. :D

 

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! :/

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.

It's slightly outside of the $150 limit, but I think the iDSD is rumoured to be pretty good for what you pay for. I'm personally not a big fan of any of FiiO's products except for their cables. >.>

@Music Alchemist you were wondering what Doujin music is?

Here:

 

In addition to my previous answer about expensive albums, here's another crazy one.

 

 

It's listed here for $360 - and that's just for a used copy! (It is hard to find and has 7 discs, though.)

 

Those doujin images are cool, but don't tell me much. They almost look like anime soundtracks, but I'm assuming they are just normal albums with that type of art.

 

All I know is that it's Japanese indie music...right?

Lol... The cover is pretty brilliant though, there's a clear sheet that has the title of the album and the blue things on it, with the rest of the cover being a separate piece of paper! XD

 

But seriously... How would you even carry those things?

Oh right... The Final Fantasy schiit will always garner a crazy amount of money... Especially the vinyls like those. I too have a rare record that I got for a much more nominal $13! :D

 

These particular ones are all remixes of Touhou music, which I believe was discussed a few pages ago. You can google all the albums and listen to them on the internets.

That box set is 7 CDs, not vinyl, lol. So I guess you never played Cool Boarders 2...

Final Destination
T01 - Credits (Super Smash Bros.) -> Tori no Uta (Air)
T03 - Opening (Super Smash Bros. Melee) -> Last Regrets (Kanon)
W25 - Final Destination (Melee) -> Toki wo Kizamu Uta (Clannad After Story)
W31 - Giga Bowser (Melee) -> Last Agni-Kai (Avatar The Last Airbender)

Distant Planet
L06 - Main Theme -> Memphis (Tutankhamun Soundtrack)

Pictochat

Did you just happen to be holding it when you read that, or is this after the fact? XD

 

Cool Boarders 2 is the most interesting snowboard game. SSX (on PS3) is fun as well.

 

Here's my favorite level and song in the game. (This would probably break every bone in your body if attempted!)

 

 

And here are pics of the ultra-rare soundtrack.

I happened to be rifling through my PS1 games earlier today and they're all within arms reach right now. 

 

I loved that stage, but I remember thinking "I could never do this in real life...".

 

Fun fact: I had never broken a single bone in my whole body until last year, I broke my hand while I was rocking out to Kansas and It hurt like hell. I also broke my chair. I'm still pretty salty too XD

Ah, for some reason it looked like vinyl to me...

Nope, never heard of it.
