    Electronic Rock

    Bands incorporating the use of electronics into their music is getting more and more prevalent, and it's hard now to classify all the different sub-genres that are spilling out. If you liked Kid A and Mezzanine, I'm thinking you'll also enjoy the following: Check out the Morr Music label. All...

    Fukuoka, Japan Micro-meet: STAX, R10, HD650, ESW10JPN, MD5000, but only two of us!

    Woosh, finally made it to the thread! A shout out to my man Amos (CurraWong) for contacting me, leading to this Fukuoka micro-meet taking place. All you other Japanese Head-Fiers, don't be shy! Let's gather someday and have a good time trying out gear and have fun talking about life, love and...

    I might cry. Finding headphones is too hard.

    What to get from Japan?

    The giant Kit-Kat is like the size of a regular Snickers or so, but it's just one big long Kit-Kat. I'm kind of addicted to it. In addition to the giant Kit-Kat there were a multitude of special and seasonal Kit-Kat flavors that were released in Japan over the years... Cherry Blossom...

    Sigur Ros amazed me but what's next...?

    Also hailing from Iceland, you would most likely be interested in Múm. More on the electronic side of things, and the melodic IDM persuasion at that. Definitely drift off to sleep in a sea of soundscapes music. Excerpt of Múm from the documentary "Screaming Masterpiece"

    What to get from Japan?

    Snacks? GABA neurotransmitter-laced chocolate balls are tasty and stress-relieving. Wasabi beef potato chips are pretty good too. There's also the giant Kit Kat bar. And don't forget... Gloomy Bear.

    Stax Transformer and Headphone Jack?? Please Help me!!!!

    Voltage and wattage are different things. The Churi is a 117v to 100v stepdown transformer that can handle a maximum output of 100w. Using a 100w transformer on something that only requires 50w will not hurt your electronics or your person. 100w is more than the amp needs, but if you ever decide...

    DENON D7000 revealed, impression and pics here

    Some bad news for all anxiously awaiting the D7000... I just got a call from one of our suppliers and it turns out the first batch of D7000's won't make the initial release (it was supposed to come out around September 18th-19th in Japan). It looks like the next batch is due in Japan sometime...

    New Ear Wax Information? (Apparently it's good for us)

    Any Asian head-fiers on the boards? Y'all know what I'm talking about when I say I love my ear digger.

    Electronica junkies, your help please.

    So, what did you end up choosing and what was the result? No need to go too in-depth on a detailed result... unless you have pics to go with it.

    Anyone here know Japanese?

    You've probably already had your test, but here's what your looking for: Linking -na adjectives Add -de after the adjective. For example: このヘッドフォンは便利で安いです。 kono heddofon wa benride yasui desu. Using -de to link -i adjectives does not happen. Use -kute to link an -i adjective with...

    More conventional, but what about Bjork? "All is Full of Love" has a few different mixes out there that may fit the bill. YouTube - All is full of love Else, possibly Air - Venus? YouTube - Venus

    Music in different languages (most interested in Japanese)

    My mother-in-law loves enka! One of the big enka names right now is Jero. He's half African-American and half Japanese, and has an amazing knack for singing enka. It's just kind of weird to see this hip-hop fashioned 20 year old guy come out, speak fluent Japanese and belt out tunes that...

    Yeah, I noticed the DOF on the Tammy is a lot narrower than what I was used to with the P&S FZ30. It's going to take some adjusting for me to focus properly, and I'm probably going to have to invest some time or money into some softer studio lighting solutions. Thank you for the suggestions --...

    Any anime series that you've been enjoying?

    Has anyone watched the Freedom OVA series by Otomo Katsuhiro (Akira, Steamboy)? I keep passing by it at my local Tsutaya and have been very curious about it since they started airing these Nissin cup-o-noodle TV spots in 2006. I'm just wondering if anyone's seen it and if it's worth a watch? My...

    I just traded in my Panasonic DMC-FZ30 for my first DSLR. I picked up a used Canon EOS 20D along with a Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8. So far, I've been very pleased with the results! First, a few final shots from my FZ30: And now, the 20D / Tamron 17-50mm shots:
