    Seen Nikita twice, seen Halloween once on Blu-ray. Don't think I've ever seen any of the Connery Bond movies PROPERLY. Lady Snowblood because I remember finding the manga alright (read eight years ago) and wanted more 70s samurai stuff after recently finishing the Lone Wolf and Cub series.

  • @ezekiel Goldfinger is one of my faves.

    Looks like I won't be watching it for another week, because the first disc (Dr. No) is cracked. :(

    Edit: I know what I'm gonna watch tonight. Been waiting a month for this import, released in January.

  • Well... I just spent a ton and bought my first ever full frame camera. There is a Nikon upgrade promo going on where Nikon will give you a free $400 CAD ($300 USD) on top of your cameras in-store value if you trade up to a D780.

    After about 4 years being into photography, I decided it’s time to go full frame. I’m immediately blown away by the high ISO performance. I can shoot in the dark @ 20000 ISO and barely even see much noise if any. Already has made my life so much simpler. I’ve become a Manual spaz because I’m always trying to reduce ISO to prevent noise or I’m always fiddling with the light meter. Not anymore! Now I’m just gonna focus on getting a good shot and let the camera do the rest of the work.

    It’s amazing but burned a damn whole in my bank account. The usual big purchase remorse that takes a day or two to settle in.

    Nikon D780

    Check out the camera and I recommend the upgrade program. It's literally free money for you to get a better camera: https://www.nikonusa.com/en/nikon-products/d780-trade-up.page

  • I'm a film man. Shot a roll of Ektar on my last trip. :)

  • @oscillator

    I want to dive into film one day, but I have a desire to get into sports photography so I'm sticking with digital for now.

    My friend has a Fujica STX-1N and its made looking back at vacations and good times that much more comforting and nostalgic. I sometimes grab disposable cameras before a camping trip or anything like that, but one day I'll consider a film cam.

  • Getting closer to cosplaying Persona 3 MC... jk I can't cosplay good. Finding headphones like this is hard, gotta import it.

  • I don't have the game yet... But this came in way earlier than I expected.

    Some region B imports. I love Masters of Cinema packaging. They use original poster art for most of their releases. The one on the left I got two months ago.

    They also come with nice little booklets featuring production photos.

  • Some games I purchased in the last few weeks

  • @neocweeny Upvote for Billy Hatcher.

  • @demonpirate I'm trying to complete my Gamecube collection. Billy Hatcher is kinda a "wild card" for me, I don't really know much about it so I'm glad to see it has its fans ^^

    Haven't bought any console games (and barely any PC games) since Astral Chain back in September. This will also be my first Luigi's Mansion. Been playing a lot of Mario Odyssey lately. It came a lot quicker than I expected. I ordered it just three days ago, so I'm guessing it came from the Gamestop right down the street rather than from any warehouse.

    English-subbed Nights of Cabiria on Blu-ray is one I've been waiting a few years for. I just skimmed through it and am so glad it looks much than the crappy 2019 scan I downloaded and watched earlier this year.

  • Hey, look what finally arrived! Wish I had it on Friday, but it is what it is.

    I needed to upgrade my PS4 slim, Is how I justified this purchase for myself.

  • Getting some tracks to fill up my Walkman. I'm trying to normalize buying individual tracks since most of the time the albums themselves aren't that good as a whole... and also because it's cheaper. I'm planning to order some video game OST CDs next.


  • New hawaiian number. The sun goes to my head, I'll be lucky to wear it again all summer

  • just pre-ordered this beauty.

    i put it on a 3 month payment plan.

  • Cleared out my entire savings on PC Parts/Desk/Chair/Audio gear/Monitor, plus some. And I'm still waiting on the NVIDIA 3080 or 3090 to drop.
    Probably a dumb-ass thing to do during quarantine when I don't have a job, but Tokyo needs a new PC and I don't tend to half-ass building them.

  • @tokyoslim

    You did the right thing...

    Curious, but how do you even plan a PC right now when the future of next gen is a bit unclear? Try to go spec for spec against the Series X / PS5?
