Did I say that price was unrealistic? Well, I take it back ^_^

This is the first time I really saved some serious money using that best offer function. Usually, the sellers send back return offers that are only like, 30 cents below the BIN price. To me, that renders the whole thing utterly useless.
Ah well. Paid last night and now I hope he'll arrive before the weekend. Wanna cuddle my Jack =)

Hehe. I just had a look at that Spears woman's so-called performance at that awards show.
Well, I suppose it could be filed under comedy.
Too bad they didn't show more of the audience trying to keep straight faces XDD

I think "Summer night breezer", along with maybe ""Shadow over the world is the only decent song on access' new album apart from "Hitomi no tsubasa", which doesn't count cuz it'd been a single before "Binary engine" (the album) came out. Geez. whats up with ASAKURA these days?
Too bad. But then, there's still Granrodeo's "Ride on the Edge" if I want a really good Jpop/Jrock CD. That band is just amazing, period.

[ profile] yamasagis PS2 auction ended last night at 7. The final price was an astounding 351,99€, which even surprised me who had been very much optimistic about the whole thing. However, [ profile] yamasagi was utterly taken aback. He'd told me he'd be happy with getting 140 Euros when the price was at that level the day before. Well, I thought it'd be about 200 Euros, maybe a bit more. But 350? Madness.

Our phone started ringing mere seconds after the auction had ended. Of course, it was mum who had watched the thing happen, the sneaky thing *lol*
However, like always, she didn't miss her chance of diminishing our feelings of victory. "Selling off your entire household now, are you?", that's what she said. Yeah, sure. Because game systems and games we don't play are totally vital items of survival. Gee... =_=

Also, my auction is live now. See it here. I got the first watcher within the first three minutes, there's three of 'em right now, but no bids so far. Still, looking good. And hey, I got the better games, so hopefully, people will be drawn to that rather than my old-ish console XD

We also re-added some of the cables. Check here to take a look at 'em.

On the "buying" side, I'm waiting for answers concerning two Nightmare before Christmas-related thingies. I sued the "best offer" option on both of them but heven't heard back from the sellers yet.
The first one is just a small set of buttons. The other one is this.
Huge (18" / 46 cm!), new, sealed plushy Jack Skellington. OMG look at him! He. Is. So. Adorable. WANT.
I offered 20 Euros, which is not exactly realistic, but I hope she'll offer to lower the initial price by two Euros or something. Pls?
Actually, I'll take him, no matter what the suggested price will be. He usually goes for more, so it's still a bargain.

I also found this guy selling Doctor Who buttons with free international shipping.
Yeah, I know, I swore I'd never use PayPal again (BTW, that is the real reason for wanting to get a credit card - avoiding the big bad PP). But... eh. Gotta think about it.

Remind me, what was I saying about...

GB being just around the corner?

[ profile] yamasagi didn't want to believe they'd might arrive today. Well, I suppose I was right once again ^_~

Finally, here they are.
Quality is not too brilliant (cellphone cam, y'know), but it's more than enough to see what they are ^_^

10 pics, 224 KB altogether )

Okay, that was it. For now ^_~
Expect pictures of a black RC Dalek, a Cyberman, a tiny radio controlled K-9 and a five-inch figure of Ten in a few days!

Yesterday, I started downloading the three new Doctor Who series in a much better quality. They're x264-encoded MP4 video and AC3 audio stream packed in .mkv (Matroska) containers. And even though the file size isn't any bigger than the other ones, the picture quality is simply stunning. I guess you could call it DVD quality.
I mainly got them because some episodes of season 2 are really badly encoded, block artifacts and everything. Which is a bit silly because putting these inside a big pack with all the other okay looking ones is just careless. I man, who expects stuff like this to happen when 99% of all TV rips out there are of decent quality? And of course, that's why I didn't check them ;_;
Anyway, got the good ones now, and they make watching even more fun... if that's even possible ^__^

Pictures of my new merch will have to be delayed because it's been terribly dark all day. My cellphone cam hates these conditions and turning on the flash and/or electric lights would only make it worse. But they will come.
I mainly compiled this lil' list for personal use, but I thought some of you might like it, too. So, here goes:

Heroes (season 2) September 24

Stargate Atlantis (season 4) September 25

House (season 4) September 25

Qi (series E) September 21

Well, I guess it's time to warm up those BT clients and clear some HDD space, for the summer is over and our heroes will be back very soon ^__^

Oh! "Who wants to be a Superhero?" season 2 finale in two days. Can't wait =)

And finally, expect pictures of my Doctor Who toys to arrive tomorrow. [ profile] yamasagi and me had an awesome unpacking and tryout session this evening. And to be honest, more stuff was ordered as well, because my dear fiance just couldn't resist that black remote control Dalek. Bless him <3

... that was fast.
But then, I gotta remember that the UK is not the US, right? In comparison, it's just around the corner ^_~

Well, it did take me a little longer than expected, but today, I finally succeeded.
I got [ profile] yamasagi convinced that Doctor Who is indeed THE THING to see for any drama/scifi freak.
I first told him a lot of the Daleks, got him interested in them and showed him episode 1x06, which is much better written than 1x01 and really brings out the strengths of the show.
Now, he's not only positive about watching the rest of the series, but he also wants a RC Dalek ^_^
Cool, eh?
Nobody can withstand my power of addicting >:D
