Last Night I dreamt the library was invaded by very slow moving manequins, and in order to stop them, we had to engage in turn-based combat with makeshift spatulas.

Was it ATB? I hope it wasn't ATB. I hate ATB in dreams. Controls become all sluggish, the enemy moves faster and faster and then you die :(

I prefer realtime, because I love to spam arrows and magic. The only downside is that is sounds silly if you have to shout the names of the spells. IceIceIceIceIceIceIceIceIceIceIceIceIceIceIceIceIceIceFire3!

Sure, I've got two DVD-players, but one is my PlayStation 2 and the other one is my other PlayStation 2. Oh and I guess the PlayStation 3 counts as well, so that makes three. NTSC U/C PS2 and PS3 are currently hooked up to the TV. PS2 plays my region 1 anime DVD's, PS3 takes care of the rest. Why hook up another player if these two are doing a pretty good job?

$250 = 250 euro

Fuck you!

Don't forget about those lovely region locks.

I'm going to buy one, but only because I have to. And I'm totally going to write it off as a business expensive.

Yeah, we're using that cover ironically.

I have had weird crossover dreams, like Xenosaga meets H2G2. Arthur and Allen got along really well, but chaos fled and locked himself in the bathroom when someone asked him to make tuna sandwiches for everyone.

Other dreams are really weird. I had one about the Lego levels in Mario land 2. Except it wasn't really a level but more like a dystopian society ruled by the pigs. The pigs ate people.

There was also the Atelier ??? dream. I loved that one, because it was so cohesive and vivid. Just walking through town and looking at the shop windows was so much fun. The alchemic items looked really pretty.

Well, you know what they say - when you tell a dog "don't do that," the dog interprets it as "don't do that." When you tell a cat "don't do that," the cat interprets it as "don't do that where I can see you."

Rabbits are worse. On one hand they're the perfect pets. They practically house-train themselves, don't make a lot of noise and are a lot of fun to watch. They'll listen if you tell them to stop, but only if you're close enough to actually stop them. They don't react well to punishment, so you have to distract them with someting that's better than whatever unwanted activity they're engaged in at the moment. Oh, and like cats, they like to climb on top of everything and sit in boxes.

Forbidden Planet is my favorite comic shop in NYC. It's also dangerously close to the company I work for (like a five minute walk).

We have a FP megastore in London too, though it's not as close to my flat or hang-outs as I wish. :(

I live in the middle of nowhere and the nearest comicbook store is 1,5 hours by bus and train from here. So, I order most of my books online and rummage through the bargain bins at animeconventions.


I have a small collection of graphic novels too. My brother collects proper comics but he's mostly into mainstream dc (Batman, Superman, Justice whatever-they-are-now). The only ones I still actively collect right now are "Umbrella Academy", "Unwritten" and "Fables". My other comics are just older TPs.

I buy TP's once in a while as well, but it's easier just to borrow them from other people. I lend them manga (and Criminal Minds boxsets) in return. I've got some random graphic novels enthusiasts would consider essentials. Like, uhm... Blankets, Tamara Drewe and Bone (the ultra affordable one volume edition). Oh, but you know what I really like? Beasts of Burden. It's basically about pets taking on satanic cults and the artwork is awesome.

Oh yeah... manga. It's a good thing we don't have earthquakes.

1584  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Collectibles (fancy saying for plastic junk we must have) on: December 23, 2010, 03:48:57 AM
Let's see, Ive got...

A set of Okage: Shadow King figures. They're standing proudly in the living room.

A complete set of Saint Seiya capsule toys. Shun looks like a ballerina and falls over all the time :(

A Timcanpy plush. It's extremely adorable. Oh, and I have a small Lavi figure as well. He guards my bookshelves together with Timcanpy.

A small Tenebrae plush that came with my reviewcopy of Tales of Symphonia 2.

And, of course, a Slime controller! Slimes are great. I love slimes! A friend of mine made a little 8-bit pixel painting of a slime for me.

Yeah, I know. I figured it out a couple of years ago. I never got a confirmation, but it's not like there is anything that can be done about it, so... yeah.

Yeah, they should use that spare time to play Valkyrie Profile. Loki was awesome.
1587  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: superior autobiographical memory on: December 21, 2010, 02:30:36 AM
Well, not really. I have a hard to remembering and recognizing faces. Sometimes I hardly recognise myself in the mirror. I'm also terrible at remembering random numbers and the like, so license plates are out as well.
1588  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: superior autobiographical memory on: December 20, 2010, 12:54:48 PM
I had two slices of toast with 'hagelslag'.

Is it really that special? I don't remember the dates, but I remember a lot of other things. I use is mainly to scare the shit out of people. Like saying the subtitles of an old cartoon out loud before they appear on the screen. Like that one time we got together for a Martian Successor Nadesico marathon in the summer of 2003. We watched some Transformers the next day. It was the episode with the timebomb. I was wearing a black skirt, a white blouse and simple black sandals. It was very hot that day. We went to the town to do some shopping earlier and my feet were still sore from the heat. Anyway, I remembered some of the subtitles.

I can also tell people what they ate when they were with me. I can tell you what I paid for practically all my PlayStation games.

Alundra, bought in the summer of 2001, I paid 30 guilders for it together with Parasite Eve and the Parasite even Eve strategy guide. Shipping was kind of expensive though. 21 guilders. Yikes. Anyway, I was at camp when it came in. Weather was rather lousy those days. The first day was blargh and rainy .I went to the indoor swimmingpool with a friend. I wore my blue swimsuit. I was a much faster swimmer than him because he only had the first two diplomas. Dinner was lousy that evening. Knakworst and bread. I ate an egg on bread instead. It was slightly better the next day and  The third day the weather was much better. We spend the day lazing about. I made a bracelet for one of the boys. He insisted on a pink one. He was colourblind btw. Other people went swimming in the lake and some paddled to a little island. They only found poison ivy and a dead duck. The last day was rainy again. Some people stayed up all night. I woke up early. We took pictures of people as they came out of their tents all sleepy. I also got my cat on the final day. She was mewing all the way home.

Oh, were was I? Ah yes, Arc the Lad. 120, just a few months after it came out. I bought it online from nedgame.com. Free shipping, yay! Sadly, the discs didn't work all that well with my PSone. Lots of trouble.

Breath of III I got from Huls. I loved that store! It was 60 guilders. I remember which shelve it was on.

I got Breath of IV on 8 september 2001 in Utrecht. I don't remember the name of the store, but I know it was in the Gildekwartier. There's a E-plaza now. The game was 60 guilders. I bought it around 2PM. It was the last one. The store had a seperate shelve for PSone RPG's.

I'll stop.

Edit: Looking at my bookshelves, I think I can do the same with my 1570 volumes of manga.

Perhaps you should consider a job at a bakery?

I write for a Dutch game magazine, so I smell like new games and old books (my workspace doubles as my library).
