No, just no.

 

Use audacity and record from your wave output.

Every time I see a thread for something new and upcoming with "appreciation" in it, I hope to god that it bombs, fails, crash, burn, explode and massacre really really really hard just for those that are waiting for it to be hurt emotionally. Or something. This goes the same way for any other thing that's new and upcoming and people are praising it just based on small teasers. This includes, from this season's shows, Shinsekai yori before I picked it up and heard that people are saying it's going to be great. Same thing I wished for for GC when you guys kind of hyped/liked it. Likewise SAO and Accel World. Wonderfully, GC seemed to have crashed and burned hard enough that some of you guys are in despair every time it's brought up.

And tilpo, there seems to be a reminder for myself to remind you to take notes of your impressions of the akg K400, K500, and the K181 at the Dutch meet. And I seem to also wrote that I should thank you in advance. Thank you.

I also am disturbed by the recent trend of starting "appreciation" threads before barely anybody has even heard something. I can't tell if hype has gotten worse since I joined here, or if I'm just more aware and jaded now.

Except it never fails, crash, and burns or does anything like that. 

 

Like Little Busters and Guilty Crown?

 

We liked GC because it was actually a good show and those episodes that were good were actually good and very edge of the seat.

 

SAO crashed and burned as well, it pulled a Naruto. In my opinion, if it ended at Volume 3 with a short story after. It would rank as one of the best light novels I have ever read manga including with a fantastic anime to back it up. But no.

I think it more as a place to GATHER all the thoughts. Like the E17 review thread and the MH1C review threads. We gather our thoughts in there but if there wasn't a place, an Appreciation thread would have sprung up so that we can each converse with each other, share mods, opinions, and also make it easy for newbs to find information and get help.

If it's a thread to gather thoughts and expectations, then it shouldn't be called an appreciation thread. I don't think anyone can appreciate something that is either a vaporware, or something that nobody has any experience with other than to go from scraps of marketing. English is a vast language. It could, and should be named as.... *drumroll*... a discussion thread.

GC didn't end up being the Messiah anime from whatever season it is, and a lot of people, including you pedopanda, IIRC, are disappointed by that. It's basically schadenfreude for me.

And it has more to do with products that are only rumors, are still a long way before they come out, and anything of the sort. I have no problem (well a bit) with an appreciation thread after they are released.

I just think it's strange that one would give such a thread with those specific purposes in mind the name "appreciation." That's more like a review or discussion thread or something. It's not that important though. Those types of conversations usually just take root wherever people happen to be talking the most, be it an announcement thread, review thread, or appreciation.

 

I'm talking more like when the thread for the new Denon line popped up and instantly some guy was there saying that they were the second coming and better than HD800 and LCD3 or something like that.

Why do we call the people that get hired to drive the rich and powerful's cars chauferre's? The latin root of the word means to boil(chauf) and the chauferre was the guy that was hired to boil water to produce steam for the cars way back then. 

 

While it isn't exactly accurate, it is a word deeply engrained in people. For example, some of my impressions I have had to call Reviews or else nobody would be able to find them (they were all longer than what most people call "reviews").

 

I am disapointed but at the same time since it never was anything at the end, I don't know what it could have been exactly and so I don't go around putting GC on my list.

 

When did I get pedo panda name?

Everything new and upcoming is instantly a Messiah-something, proven sight unseen and sound unheard, and anybody that disagrees are heretics and blasphemers that should be burned at the stake and their lineage ended to prevent its heretical offspring from spreading blaspheme against the Messiah-something.

wrt me calling bowei pedopanda: Your creepy love for that toddler in whatitscalled family harem thing, that even Tilpo dislikes. And he's the nearest version of alternate me that like SoL, harem, etc. His mind almost operates like mine, and that's kind of creepy and astoundingly interesting at the same time.

Little Busters, but the thing is. Our thread didn't do that. Everyone including me was a huge skeptic of what JC Studios could do and we were right. IT pulled off a job that I won't even include in the Key universe.
