Ha, I remember seeing that come up with the drugs. Did you ever find out what was inside? I assume they were just sadly taken away before the mystery was uncovered.

I think I posted it in this thread. I am CZroe's twin brother and I was with him that day. We used my cash to buy the suspiciously heavy NES games.

[edit]

Yup.

Hah, I saw that one on Reddit and a few other places, it's really been making rounds.
Almost thought your post was a joke, but your username and avatar lines up with one of the guys on NintendoAge, so I'm assuming you're the same person :)

Did you ever find out exactly what chemical it was? :3

Yeah. I was with my twin brother at the flea market on April 1 (HAD to be on that day, right?) when we found the heavy games on the cheap rack at our friend's booth. Our friend couldn't find his gamebit screwdriver, so we bought the games from him and promised to show him whatever we found inside.

Julian / Emmett Turner is my brother (aka "CZroe"). He recorded the video of the cartridge shells being opened and of me cutting into one of the packets.

Police haven't contacted us back. We haven't heard what it is. People have said a dozen different things, but the more authoritative suggestions have said it's heroin.

hell yea, higurashi. recently rewatched that thinking i'd be extremely embarrassed but frankly liked it more than i did as a teen. it frequently borders on trash and is flagrantly problematic, but i really dig how much it has an authentic core value of sticking with your friends through thick & thin. really admirable kind of ethic in today's time where callout & cancel culture are so rampant.

I've never watched it!!! But it was $20 and I didn't want to risk it going out of stock like some other things have (bought or already had all but one of the ones that went oos thankfully).

I'm probably most excited for Say "I love you." which I'm starting tonight. The reception on it is mixed, but every review makes it sound like everything I always want out of these kind of shows. As if ridiculous melodrama or corniness could be a detriment in this genre. They are in fact a huge plus. :lol: :lol:

Tamako Market is probably the 2nd to get watched out of these.

found some monitors locally for very cheap so I assembled a cute, WAF retro gaming corner to be staying in the living room (in its corner there when not in use, and rolled up closer to the couch when gaming). gonna put a figurine or 2 on top and it's gonna look ace.

Image

in there is Genesis console I just got, looks absolutely mint and is an early model 1 with great sound. super stoked about that

Yeah I saw the Salamander 2 Pop Up art by itself in Beep a day after buying the board, I just had to have it.

That´s actually a Darius Gaiden Gamest Mook and while it´s really cool, it´s not really original kit artwork. I did preorder the Darius Cozmic International Limited Edition with comes with repro art for Gaiden, so I´m good.

I’ve got that exact Salamander 2 POP, bought it years ago and haven’t even got the game. Nice pick ups.

Dubya gives a hearty 'Thumbs UP!' to his new SFII`CE cab. Here we see the commander-in-chief about to start a game using his favorite character, Guile.

@kitten, it was a gift from a family member who appreciates my taste for irony. I think he found it at Goodwill or something, unopened.

This particular figure is _insanely_ detailed and has all of the 'Mission Accomplished' accoutrements. I've actually never taken it out of the box before tonight, but it's just such a weird thing that I can't bring myself to get rid of it. As it turned out it was the only toy I owned that was the appropriate scale for this photo, so there you have it.

My dear Kitten, it could be much, much worse - he could very well have owned a 'George Bush Junour Sex Doll' if, and let's hope it doesn't, but if they are available on the public market that is :lol:

Numerous photos, as I've been systematically photographing my recent comfort buys as they'd come in, and it's just tonight when I get around to posting them, not much of an internet person that I am these days.

First, the weirdest of all, actually...
Image
...since no information whatsoever is given here who, when and where did piano-playing and recording of the tracks on this one. It sure was a cheap CD, but, blimey!

Though my introduction to the piece was a half-staging of it in the NFM's magnificent Red Hall a couple of years ago, re-staged next year, which I also got lucky to witness. Could be the reason why this "merely" stereo recording feels almost like an altogether different piece.

Image

I can't seem to get enough of these. Pretty cost-effective, nicely versatile way of increasing volume & broadening frequency response.

Image

Did I forget Summer Eyes to be this long.

Last but not least...

Ministry's 'Land' is a good album - Golden-Dawn is still special. I actually like 'Filth Pig' over all as a fave Ministry album but the early stuff is well worth having - takes me way, way, waaay back :D
Yep, Helmet's 'Meantime' is a good album too, good man!

I'd be interested in the Francis Bacon book. Recently, I bought a book about Hans Bellmer which may be of interest to you too:

Thanks! it was a really rewarding experience. I had been writing/calling a ton of broadcast studios/rental shops, universities, hospitals etc in the last 2 years. too many to count. And now finally after all that work and those negative answers, I finally found this one broadcast rental shop. It was a 6 hour drive in total. I "cleaned house" so to speak (they only had a couple monitors left). They were more than happy to get some coins from their crt monitors, to be honest.

It was pretty cool to go there, they are an official Sony dealer so they had all these Sony posters/laminates describing gear and specs. I got into their warehouse and saw all those monitors and VCRs and Genlocks and interfaces etc etc it was so cool

Lots of nice stuff over the holidays, but this is probably my favorite. I was due for an upgrade. Replaced the Hori PCB with a Brook wireless board. Stick and buttons are Seimitsu (LS-56-01-AS for the stick). This thing is as smooth as butter and I love it.

5 of them. 2 x PVM 20L5(one has a slight defect to the screen but still very useable), 1 x PVM 20M4U, 1 x PVM 14M4U and 1 x PVM 14M2U. all have very good tube and screen geometry

I might trade an L5(since I have 2 of them) against a very large PVM with a softer picture(I prefer those), I have a line with another retro gamer

Yeah I was tempted by it too. You know me, lol. But that other stuff wasn't for sale I don't think. Plus I had only brought enough cash for the monitors.

Wow that's pretty sweet!

I've always wanted a PVM... I've always had that itch to see how good they actually looked in person. With ebay prices and all there is no way I'm going to spend that kind of cash to experience what its like.

I guess I'll make due with my consumer grade Sony WEGA CRT TV. People say the later models are almost just as good as a PVM but I'll never know really until I see it for my own :cry:
