Aquired one of these, at somewhat of a knock-down price after it sat idle for over a year waiting to be disposed of. It's quite old but I'm running my turntable, PC and PS3 through it with some old speakers we had lurking around from a dead surround system.

It's not even being tested but it sounds so much better than the logitech PC speakers I had everything hooked up to. Even if I didn't get a remote control with it.

Today my video game and blu-ray collections expanded nicely.
Image

Sorry about the shitty image quality, I opened the curtains to let in more light but it's overcast outside, which isn't helped by my tablet's camera being junk.

Blu-rays: The Great Escape, The Outlaw Josey Wales, and Evangelion 3.33 in all its garish turquoise glory.
Games: Fallout New Vegas Ultimate Edition, Skyrim Legendary Edition, and Blazing Angels.

Fun fact: this is actually the 5th copy of New Vegas I've purchased. My first copy was the standard edition for X360 which I played until the disc cracked. After that I bought another X360 standard edition, which I later traded in towards an X360 Ultimate Edition when it released. Later I bought the PC Ultimate Edition through Steam and ended up giving my X360 Ultimate Edition to my best friend as a Christmas present back in 2014. But I never game on my laptop anymore and not having a physical copy of what I consider to be one of the greatest games of all time was really bugging me, so today I purchased the PS3 Ultimate Edition. I don't regret any of the money I've spent on this game over the years, I just love it that damn much. :heart:

And of course I couldn't pass up Q. This is a really nicely presented box, with a nice artbook inside as well.

Catch of the day: Evangelion 1.11, Evangelion 2.22, Red Dawn (1984), and a Ryobi belt sander.

...What do you mean those items seem completely random? Of course they're related! Stop being suspicious! :tongue:

Got a Kiev 3a (Soviet Contax RF copy, pictured) from my uncle and then bought a Zorki 4 for about 25-30 US on ebay shortly thereafter. ^_^

Skil worm drive saw, 750ml of Crown Royal Black, and seasons 1-4 of Hogan's Heroes in a 19-DVD set. It's going to be a fun afternoon.

Image

I would have preferred a blu-ray set of Hogan's Heroes, but there aren't any as far as I know and this is better than nothing.
A worm drive saw is a contractor-grade circular saw that uses a parallel-mounted motor and special gearing known as worm drive to deliver extreme torque. With one of these you can stack 5 sheets of 1/2" thick plywood plywood on top of each other and cut them all at the same time.
Also, I just remembered this is the first time I've bought whiskey in 4 years. Here's a toast to 4 years of accidental sobriety! *Gulp* ...nevermind. :tongue:

Aww, neither of you want to master the art of drunken carpentry? Just kidding, IronEvangelion doesn't condone the use of power tools by anyone who is drunk, stoned, or under the influence of oral sex. :lol:

Actually the whiskey and the DVDs are the only things in the picture I used this afternoon. The saw I got last week and used it for a small project already (It works great!), but I never had a chance to take a good photo of it until now, so I lumped it in with the other things. By the way, the picture quality on the DVDs is actually pretty damn good. The show is still in 4x3 aspect ratio of course, but each episode has been remastered to some degree. It looks like 480p resolution, which is pretty damn good for a show filmed in the mid-60s. $35 well spent.

:lol:

Very nice. I've found often, 480p remasters look quite good indeed, and I'm a bit of a resolution snob myself. (1080p on up for hi def or nothing at all) but the magic that can be worked on quite old footage and how it looks at just 480p can be astounding.

My haul for this weekend came in the form of Vodka, Sake, and beer. (Vodka I bought myself, parents bought me the beer and Sake :lol:) for drinking and online gaming shenanigans with friends. Since my birthday is on this coming Monday and I didn't take any time off, gotta celebrate somehow :lol:

I got the expected attempt at something useful as a retirement present from work - a crystal decanter, rather nice, but not really my taste, plus an Amazon voucher for the balance of their collection. Oh, and a T-shirt saying "I am currently away from my computer", which is rather neat given the circumstances.

However, one individual who had to miss the presentation gave me a present from himself; a big poster:

"As long as we're all living, and as long as we're all having fun, that should do it, right?" (from: The Eccentric Family )

I'm actually envious, both of the friend who gets it and the poster. I haven't seen that particular piece before, and would have no idea how to track it down.

I guess this is where he got it:

Online, I've found a less blurred version than the admittedly poorly printed (but still impressive) poster:
SPOILER: Show
Image

Also a different colourway (but much smaller):

The background alone is widely available in several colour versions, and has been used with different characters in the foreground.

So this is a fan creation, then? That would explain why I haven't seen it!
