Be it music, equipments to enjoy said music to the fullest, or others, post about them here.

Ex: your latest music purchase which sound good, discussions about headphones, or even how certain albums sound much better when you're high.

I hope this is on-topic.

Is it in any way a good idea to buy musical instruments online? Specifically, I'm thinking of buying a new guitar and amp, but due to... circumstances, I wish to avoid going to the store if possible.

So is it a good idea to make a purchase online without first having a feel for the wood and material, checking the tone, sustain, etc? Will reading online reviews alone be a good enough basis to make an informed decision?
>> No.39004  
>>39003

I buy all my instruments online and have never had a problem. Usually I'll just check out a few youtube videos of the product I'm interested in, and look up a couple of forum threads to see if there are any outstanding quality control issues.

I'm usually very happy with my purchases, but then again I'm not particularly picky about my instruments. In a couple of years' time I plan to order myself a custom-made bass guitar and that'll be online-only as well.
>> No.39011  
>>39003
If possible, I would suggest on trying out the instrument at a local store before ordering it online.
>> No.39019  
It is very important to be able to try an instrument before deciding on a purchase. Buying online is fine but only if there is a flexible return policy.

I actually agreed with your points a few weeks ago, but after re-watching the series in anticipation for the finale, I've since changed my mind. The whole progression of the show in a fairy tale like sense puts the weird pacing into perspective imo. And far from "overstaying her welcome", there are only 4 really important characters in the show and Ringo is one of them. Understanding her, and her interactions with the Takakuras is pretty important to understanding the message of the show.

As for the point on symbolism, I am not going defend it and say "Well that's just how Ikuhara is". However I really don't think it was all that overblown. People can read into the show as much as they want and probably find evidence of anything. But with the exception of a few episodes, the presentation was very straightforward, and the symbolism wasn't terribly important, at least not until the end.

Anyway, I haven't slept for quite a while now and I'm just rambling, so if any of this sounds off to you please forgive (`・ω・´)

>> No.38395  
So, I finally finished Pingdrum. I think it's my favourite show that's aired since Tatami Galaxy. As some have pointed out, the symbolism got a little overwhelming at times, but it's all good. I enjoy tearing up shows and poke about the inside. And it's more fun to find too much than nothing at all. Other than that the 90's throwback style was pretty cool, it had excellent scene composition and art and also something close to flawless foreshadowing.

Im@s was alright I guess. A little disappointed the last episode was just a giant sakuga-splurge. But kudos for well-executed drama in a slice-of-life. In retrospective, I wish the series had been darker. Oh well.
>> No.38397  
I wanted more symbolism in Penguindrum. Something like Utena.
>> No.38398  
Bet I am gonna get flamed for it but I wasn't impressed with penguindrum. I actually love the first part of it when we were slowly given their tiny backstory bits by bits with flashback. Especiallynthe episode about sergeant frog.
The second part, not so much. Too magical for my taste. Symbolism for the sake of symbolism when he should have just kept it simple.
It was still a solid 6/10 though.

I know it's not Shakespeare or anything, but I don't think you're giving the story enough credit. I was highly sceptical of the whole 'story-driven' angle they were going for, but have been surprised by how well it works. It really feels like you're playing a new KOTOR game rather than some generic WoW-clone; little things like how all of the KILL X MOBS quests are now bonus missions rather than NPC-given quests, the way they've handled companions and the implementation of the dialogue wheel make the game feel far less like an MMO than I thought possible.
>> No.38309  
>>38298
I'm not saying it is bad or anything, don't get me wrong, I am enjoying it. But I mean, WoW is a 7 year old game, maybe I'm being naive, but I was hoping for a little more evolution on the genre.

MMOs evolve in the same way as genres such as fighters, racers, VNs and sports games. That is to say, they don't.

If you want evolution, hold out for GW2. In the meantime, TERA might come out so we can all be elin lolis with uguu baraka.

Hey bunbunmaru. I don't know if this is the right place to ask this, but I hope it's fine if I do anyway.

I'm going to make an adult oriented Touhou flash, with the deadline set on christmas. I am, however, not sure of what Touhou character to use, as there is so many of them.
So I am asking you to vote for what Touhou character you would like to see in this flash. You like Touhou around these parts, yes?

I'm not sure what the content of the flash will be. It'll probably be something that fits the character that ends up with the most votes.

So, please vote. I want to get this started on december 1st, so you have until then.

Hello bun.
I have just finished watching Welcome to N.H.K.
I have loved the characters as they are more relatable then the animes I had watched up till now. I want to know if are there any such anime/manga/franchise that have characters with "problems".

One other thing is that I came to realization that there exist a great deal of NEETs after watching the series and reading this survey here:>>12738
Mind you, I knew about the hikikomori condition but it never occurred to me that they are quite the population. I suspect that the demographic is around 18-26, people who should be in the college or on the verge of having a job defined by their degrees or abilities. Being on the same demographic, I sometimes feel like turning into one. I never do.

I want to know if there are any of you who "was" in there.
Any theories as to the cause and cure?
Are those people "content" with what they have?

>>37224 I hear you. That is also why I loved Evangelion, all of that mecha was cool too, but the real deal was that they were all struggling with their identities. Even though I prefer animes with older characters evangelion had them younger but mature, or in the process of maturing.

The interview went fine, the problem was I don't have any experience in the field I was applying for (retail sales). It's also a shop at an upscale mall, so I'd have to deal with rich people all the time, and I've never done that either. But honestly I just need the money while I look for a real job. A lot of stores are currently hiring seasonal temp workers to stay on the next two months.

Before you ask, the things just got chaotic song is "Panic de Trouble de Oh My God"
