Re: Aladdin 2019.

Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now

Spec Ops Asuka is enjoyable..

On a sort of make Madoka jealous by traumatising the living fuck out of it's teenaged cast while getting you partyvanned sort of way.

It's not shy. About anything.

Re: [Film] Alita: Battle Angel

I enjoyed it. Visually it's well realised - especially in IMAX. Beautiful 3D PG "ultraviolence". I can't really review it because I'm familiar with the source material - but it makes a big effort to get as much of the big "Alita" coolness in for people to enjoy. The beauty of a p...

Re: Buying a Record Player

The reason Crossley's and their ilk are poorly regarded is because they use an aolder-style cartridge called a Ceramic cartridge. The moving needle (Or Stylus if you want) puts pressure on a pair of crystals which generate piezo-electric voltages. Amplify the voltage and you've got your music. The p...

Re: Computer Stupidities

I am trying to make a new website using a CMS I've not used before. It works perfectly (apart from the site being work in progress), except for one thing: it doesn't work on iOS when served via https (all browsers, the same). It's fine using https on Windows or Android, or using http on iOS - just ...

And a worthy one at that. Do please share those photos when you've got them. ^_^ See link below. Unfortunately, the processor borked the first few rolls - they came out a little blue. Some can (and have) been corrected. I haven't gotten around to the others yet. The joys of analogue http://imgur.co...

Ah yeah. If anyone else is making the trip, I cannot recommend the ryokan we stayed in highly in. The staff at Hakone Miyamafurin were beyond exceptional, patient and tolerant of us despite us arriving in the dark, dirty and sweaty after a long journey. Also. The rooms are brilliantly appointed.

Jaunting around Hiroshima. I finally get this scene from Evangelion Fuck me. It's like stepping out into a solid wall of heat, dripping with humidity. Getting off the plane in Tokyo was like 'slap'.
