Over the 7777

*Five Star Stories reference for those who didn’t know*

To be honest, I never thought that I would get this far but here I am, seven years in and still blogging about stuff nobody really cares about! And, as tradition demands, here’s the anniversary post for my purchases for the past year.

My volume [...]

Don’t forget to turn off the lights!

A bit of sad news this time around. It’s actually been a few weeks since this happened but Tokyo-Hunter, one of the first Proxy services for buying limited edition items in Japan is no more.

 

 

 

They haven’t really been trading for some time but their website was still up until recently [...]

A whole New World

Well, this was a rather pleasant surprise. A new concert from the makers of Distant Worlds and a premier in London!! Yeah, I went!

The new show was given the complete title “A New World: Intimate music from Final Fantasy” and that was a pretty accurate description. Instead of a full orchestra seen in [...]

Almost there!!

Well, this was the weirdest week in my memory!! I took part in my clubs kendo competition over the weekend and a few other surprise events have left me reeling! So there’s not much to update on pretty much anything right now, other than my copy of persona 4 Arena FINALLY arrived!! I had planned [...]

The Light before we Land

If I ever get a “smart” idea like this again, you have permission to slap me with a set fish!! This has been way harder than I had anticipated but I’ve pretty much reached the limits of my abilities, and collection so I really need assistance with the final push.

But as the famous catchphrase [...]

The Devil makes work for Idle Thumbs…

OK, so the title probably isn’t the most accurate description of what I’m about to attempt. Basically, while checking out my old fansub collection, I found a couple of files from back in 2004. Basically, some heroic fellow made a video of every mecha TV anime which was aired in the 80s and 90s and [...]

Hell or Heaven? Probably hell…

Back to Hong Kong for this weeks post where I’ll be posting up photos of a rather impromptu meetup which occurred while I was there. For one evening Q, Adun50, Coffeebugg, Avan Pang and myself got together for an evening and mingled. We spent some time at the infamous Sino Centre in Mong Kok where [...]

Return from the wilderness

Did ya miss me?

 

Well, who cares about that? For those who are curious, the reason for the lack of updates for the past few weeks was because I was in Hong Kong. TBH, it wasn’t a great trip. I did manage to have some fun times but there was also a fair [...]

Returning to a Distant World

Wow, has it already been 12 months? This time last year some friends and I went to the Royal Albert Hall and were treated to a wonderful evening of music courtesy of the royal philharmonic orchestra as part of the first show of distant worlds in the UK! Back then, the concert opened with the [...]

May’n Rock your Beats @ Paris!

And now for something completely different!

OK, enough with that silliness, it’s time for a different kind! Sometimes, it’s good to do something stupid and one thing you learn is that if there’s a concert which you believe you will enjoy, you damn well try your hardest to get there because you don’t know [...]
