    Clue is fun until my notes get illegible and then I give up and start playing at random.


    Next time I play it I'll forgo the tiny included notepad and just get a full sheet of paper on a clipboard.

    I almost bought something at Walmart...
    ... I had to restrain myself. It was...
    ... not easy.

    There I was looking in the movie section, when I found myself and I'm not even joking here, my eyes open wide, mouth open wide, and making a sound reminiscent of Kayako from The Grudge...
    ... I can only imagine what the people around me were thinking...
    ... I'm not sure how long I was standing there. It couldn't have been long, but something had caught my eye.

    It was one of my all time favorite anime, on Blu-Ray...
    ... Osamu Tezuka's Metropolis.

    I grabbed it. I held it in my hands. I was prepared to buy it.
    Then I stopped and thought. Maybe there's a Collector's Edition or something. I've been waiting a long time for this moment, and if there's a Collector's Edition, why settle for the standard Blu-Ray.
    I took out my phone and headed to Amazon.
    Not quite a Collector's Edition, but there's a beautiful SteelBook coming out in October.
    There is a drop dead gorgeous, SteelBook coming out in October.
    I placed an order, as I reluctantly put the movie back on the rack. I nearly went back for it about a dozen times before we left the store.

    I could still go back tonight... it's only a half hour's walk away. That's it.
    Needless to say, I'm watching my old DVD copy now, as I mull that over.

    Edit: Credits scrolling...
    ... MadHouse!! What haven't you guys done?! I love them so much. LOL

    I'll try to. X3 Not an adventurous trip, I will just be staying with a friend for a while, maybe meeting someone from here if I can work up the courage, MAYBE doing a small road trip. Plan to eat and sleep a lot though. X3

    Used my bonus, bought a relatively nice guitar. Need a setup done on it though (low E string buzzes, strings probably have slack that keep it from staying in tune, intonation is off as far as I can tell), and an interface to use it with the PC. Rocksmith cable is kind of annoying to use, for low latency and sound output I have to mess with the drivers every time I use it, and every time I want to go back to normal PC sound. I'm sure it's decent for Rocksmith, which I don't have yet, but for just listening with headphones using an amp sim, too much work.

    To keep from having to swap my headphones back and forth I'm thinking of connecting the audio interface to the PC, already have a TRS to 3.5mm cable. Just need to figure out which works best, interface to PC, or PC to interface.


    My fingers are bigger than they used to be. A chord is hard, lmao. D and E are easy enough at least.

    I've been thinking of using Rocksmith to try to learn the guitar. :3 But I prefer acoustic to electric. X33 Brother does have an electric guitar I could use though...

    Today I bought a small set of Torx Security bits so I could open my PS4. I put electric tape over the sensor for the the eject button, seems like it works since it did not immediately eject the disc I put in to test. Nice that I can finally use my PS4.... but I am tempted by the limited edition Pros coming out. X3

    One of my black friday purchases was a Logitech z506 5.1 surround sound system for my PC/TV, so to achieve that I am about to re-arrange everything and make a full fledged work station/gaming area 3 screen setup AND put this old CRT in the far corner for retro purposes, Things are about to get awesome. I will have 2 screens hooked up to the computer proper, and I bought a Steam Link so I can play and use my computer on the TV WITH the PS4 controllers if I need.

    My other non-gaming purchases ended up being some replacement ear cups for my Sony MDR-10RBT head phones I have had and love for the past couple years. and a mic desk arm so I can record voice over with a bit more ease.

    I am preparing for full entertainment immersion with my new surround sound system (cant wait to hear what God of War and Horizon Zero Dawn sound like on this thing) and of course movies are gonna be that much more involved and naturally music. I am pretty darn stoked with my end list of Black Friday purchases, and I really busted ass the past few weeks selling stuff on ebay to get up the money for it, now it will soon be time to get down to business. My social media and YouTube/Twitch Presence TheDorkyDeviant is trying to go pro. More soon. :)

    Bought another hockey jersey. That is my 50th jersey. I, officially, have a problem.

    Finished off Hanamonogatari today. Went to Barnes & Noble, and grabbed this beauty...
    [​IMG]
    ... normally $30. Got my 10% off, plus the 25% coupon they emailed me this morning. I thought $30 was a bit much, but $20 is more reasonable.
    Then I got home, and B&N had sent me a $10 Gift Card in the mail. Nice of them.
