More music? Sure, 

 

A nice discovery while looking for new music to listen to Kana, as you can see, she is an indie artist, recordings may not be stellar but she has a nice voice.

 

 

Recently out by TAM, very engaging to listen to, feels pretty grand lol

 

A personal favourite where my top 2 favourite singers, Suara and Nana Mizuki perform a duet :D Very very high level stuff there.

 

 

Speaking of balls,

Back in ye ol' day, I had to go to the video store to rent anime, because broadband was still quite new in Australia, and we didn't have it yet. 

 

I remember having dial-up internet up until abouuut 2003 or so. tongue.gif

 

It took fifteen minutes to download an mp3!

I like the HD600 sound for the most part, but I get the feeling I'm missing a bit of detail in the treble region... (and lacking sub bass)

 

You could get a transparent SS amp and add the tube distortions via software, but where's the fun in that? wink.gif

 

I remember you were interested in the Somics... according to Boris they have more subbass than his hd600 and according to me, the highs on these things are very lively indeed.  Also one of the smoothest I've heard in their unmodded state.  Right now I've taped the vents inside to get more subbass and padded the pads with tissue to prevent them the inside from touching my ears.  Only complaint I have now is they now clamp too tight on my XL noggin, so I'm giving them stretching exercises every day tongue.gif

Really tried to like the Suara and Nana Mizuki duet but the sound quality was lacking frown.gif

I'm just saying, the thread became "Project H, Loungin', occasionally anime/manga, and never music" for like three months >_>

 

and because fire was kind enough to share his wondeful wares, I'll post some tunes too.

Also, so far headphones that are under consideration are the HD600 and HD650 with my mind still tilted towards the 650 because it seems like the sound signature is may be of what I'm looking for. The 600 seems to have better balance through the spectrum and seems like it could actually work well with classical music more so than the 650 but the more colored sound of the 650 is more intriguing at this point. I am also interested in whatever Denon headphone is in the region of my price because the Denon sound seems like it could be what I'm looking for as well. Then again, every time I plugged one into my amp sans the D2000, the Maverick seems to disagree. I think it may be an impedence thing. Then again, I was also in a loud room...idk, I'll look more into it. But yeah, right now the 600 and 650 seem to be where my eyes lay.

I was watching that Kana video, and I couldn't help but feel that I recognised the place.

 

So I did some digging in my photos, and yup, I was right. tongue.gif That's in Shinjuku, I don't think I saw any street performances while I was there. frown.gif

 

It's almost been a year, but the memories are still vivid, I can't wait to go back again.

What's amazing is how well everything just works out of the box now, especially driver support. I have had less problems installing Mint than installing W7 on a brand new custom box with UEFI, Ivy Bridge, all that pizazz. Can't say I've broken an install in years.
Yeah after i broke it i was like whatever

Testing mobile upload.
No more hiding under bed sheets?

My father came in when I was watching Nanoha Movie 1st transformation scenes on my BDP, you should have seen his reaction, hilarious! Anyways, here are some vids.




 No need to thank me =D

Some real music, mayuyu is pretty fail lol but still, bliss


So doing this at future concerts I'm going to.

I've been meaning to try out Arch for quite some time now. If I can get Minecraft and Foobar2000 to work on there, I'm sold.

quite a touchy subject depending on the person...

I don't show it off, but everyone knows about it. Most people I know are aware of my Japanophilism, and I've never really had negative reactions about it either. Some find it weird, and others don't, but even those that find it weird don't suddenly start acting differently towards me.

and 2 16GB SD cards...
I don't have where to use (except for my tablet, but I already have a 32GB there) and asked my mother for 2 microSD ones. She even called me from the store where she was about to buy me 2 pendrives because she didn't exactly understand what I was saying... Eww...

Nice!

My personal loot is the following:
- Some candy
- 6 lined A4 notebooks
- A pot of black Parker ink
- The first volume of Spice and Wolf.

Don't know what I'm gonna do with the latter. I personally don't like reading novels; the entire medium just seems to bore me for some reason.

This.

Except in my case I haven't really met anyone who finds it creepy.

Maybe that's thanks to the fact that all of the people I know that aren't into anime themselves, all study either mathematics or physics. And trust me, >90% of the people studying that are nerds themselves, so they can understand having hobbies like that very well, even if they don't do anything with it themselves.

Why? There's no need for it. I'm intelligent enough not to watch ecchi in front of everyone, and besides, with my very anal anime choices nowadays, there's no problem of that currently. I'm also hating on the too diabetic direction anime seems to be taking right now, the over-glazed, over-sweetened feel-good-time-for-lonely-otaku anime(**), so there's no way of me being accused of being some sort of pedophile, so there's nothing 'wrong' to hide from the fams. I'm all clean for all intents and purposes, until midnight descends.

Well in my case, I already have friends that watch anime pretty avidly like me, and some of my siblings already watch it too, so there's not much weirdness anymore. IMO you guys are the ones that needs to stop treating it like some taboo and just show it openly, where appropriate. Of course being candyfloss panda, that's impossible since he watch a lot of (**).

I really hate this notion that anime seems to be going in some overly moe driven path to the extent that it's dying or something...seriously, anime has always had a lot of those shows. I will admit, presence of the slice of life genre has gotten bigger but still, the number of anime I can consider non-moe is still pretty good. Every season (sans the particularly poor ones), I am of the opinion that those people who go around complaining have at least 3 anime they can watch that aren't diabetes laden lol. Now I'm not really getting on you jgray, it just frustrates me when people go around talking like there are no good anime nowadays and those very people not only have an extremely limited view on anime and its genres but ignore the ones that fit into what they want. Now the actual quality of those shows can be subjective but overall, generally speaking from a critical standpoint, there are still loads of good shows around that don't involve half assed romcom ecchi moemoe kyun tactics.

 

And don't get me started with the ones who clutter anything that isn't an action show into one big pile of "moe trash". There is no helping those folks.

Every time I download a torrent that has the famous 'Torrent downloaded from Demonoid.txt' in it, I cry a little. frown.gif

Edit:

LOL, double post, even though I clicked submit only once.
