Yahoo auctions and buyee are your friend. ;)

Nothing good on there now, but sometimes you can get the limited edition with everything for around 3000 yen plus shipping.

 

 

How does one even go about ordering from there? >.>. Not like I have any money to buy anything right now xD

Watched first ep of Yuyushiki.

Nope.
Diabetes art style, bad OP and ED, too much orientation on puns.

The good thing about it is that it's on the right level of Japanese. I was able to follow the show with only the occasional glance at the subs for a missing word.

Spent a couple hours doing research. While I want a decent watch, I'm not really that much into watch-fi, so I wanted to keep it as cheap as possible while still getting good quality. I set a budget of about €100.

Probably going to buy the black face Orient Union
 

I've got a cheapass Casio MQ24(£5-8 watch) for my daily beater. Light and doesn't slip down or up my wrist when I'm cycling. Also have an Oris Artelier (633 movment) for more formal situations. Nice and simple design, date window, white face, no subdials.

And I also don't like those rubber sports watches. They just look... fugly.

Ahh, I see

 

I like the ones where you can see the gears and everything behind it.

Keep it simple (when it comes to watches).

You mean my system specs?

CPU is an AMD Phenom II X4 955.
Grapics card is my trusty old Geforce 275GTX.
250GB Samsung SSD
300GB Samsung HDD
4GB Corsair RAM (soon to be 8GB)
Windows 7
 

 


:D
Sorry, but the last person I would ask for an objective rating of the Watamote OP would be you.

Any pics of your sytsem? And nice

That Casio actually looks surprisingly nice for the money.

I think I'll just stick with the Orient Union. Costs a little over €80, which I find quite a bit of money. As such I'll probably wait a week before buying it, and do some more research too. Never hurts, and it goes a long way into preventing later buyers remorse.

I search for the stuff on yahoo auctions, then you copy and paste the URL into the search bar on buyee. At buyee, you put in your credit card info (not sure if they do paypal now), they charge $1 to the card to verify its authenticity, and then remove the charge after a little while. From there, you can place bids on items. If you win, they charge the item price plus their fee to your card. Then you wait for the stuff to be delivered to their warehouse. Once it is, you just have to pay however much the EMS fee is and then they ship it off to you. I've spent over $600 on stuff from them so I can verify they're legit. XD

I just had some pretty disappointing beef bulgogi. The car was nice, but i think they forgot to put the sauce in. It was pretty bland and dry.

Ah well, the delicious barley tea makes up for it.


What's the texture like for durian? Andrew Zimmern tried it on his Bizarre Foods TV show and he said it was one of the few foods he can't eat. XD

Nothing much to see there. Could take a picture of it tomorrow though ;)
Here, you get a picture of my oh-so-cramped and glorious battlestation instead :P



I thought about getting a Geforce GTX 760.
Maybe this one:

At least the you liked car. Best part of bulgogi.
:3
They did not give you any of the super awesome sauce? That's criminal.

Hmmm the texture is kind of like the one of a super-ripe mango or banana.
It smells like rotting onions and the one I tried tasted like rotting onions covered in honey.
One of the worst things I ever ate.
Truffles come in second place.

Muromi-san.

Dropped after 4 episodes. Dang this show is boring.

I guess I'll just go watch Cromartie High. Been meaning to for a long time.

Ahah... gotcha! Thank you very much! Will definitely have to look through this once I pay back all my audiophile debt. 

 

You liking Rewrite so far? :D
