Something I've been waiting to buy for a couple of years now:

image0.jpg

image1.jpg

I got a Blu-ray drive! Which is, to say, outside of my brothers' Xbox Ones and my older brother's PS4, is the very first Blu-ray drive in the house.


Volume / Normalized 100% / 66% (content loudness 3.7dB)

Local VHS collector and video capture amateur. PM me for any questions concerning VHS recording if interested.

Have they come down in price? About 4-5 years ago when I was looking it was $100+ for a good one.

You can get a new BD-ROM drive for about $50. Mine I got used off of eBay and it was $30, complete with two-day shipping.

I really gotta get me one capable of ripping 4K Blu-Rays for my file server to use for Plex.

 

Then again, I also need to get drives for it so that I don't have every single damn port taken up while still slowly running out of space.

I bought an Inland 256gb NVME drive so I can do a nuke an reinstall of all my shit. Gonna move the OS over to the NVME drive.

 

I also got a 2qt All Clad saucier pan at Marshall's for a fucking steal of a price. Basically more than half off because it had a long but narrow shallow on the outside.

 

I been wanting that pan for a while now.

 

edit: The scratch was shallow, not narrow

Gobelets.jpg.71a3a2c3b8737ad12c99d68263c8ec97.jpg

 

And I have 2 mugs on back order one from her and one from another local potter. A few weeks to to wait until they are ready.

 

Daughter got a new woollen cape, a new shirt and a leather waist high belt. Now to make her a skirt and some breeches

Cooking rice with a special veggie/chicken broth I made. Was supposed to be chicken/veggie jelly for spreading on sandwiches. (think savory, chickeny jelly on an American cheese and balogna sandwich), but I didn't have any gelatin packets, so into the rice it goes!

Also, and I should have posted this sooner, I got this
U7S2Yep.jpg

 

I like it. Smooth action and the pump grip doesn't wiggle. Remington 870 Magnum. Based on the serial number I believe it to be of late 70's manufacture.

Just got back from a weekend trip to London so this is just a big post showing all of my main purchases. i'm a big fan of Jordan brand sneakers so I had to pick up the Tinker 3's when I saw them, also grabbed the jordan 1 low PSG for wearing to work as my old work shoes are trashed.

The levis jacket is something i had my eye on for a while and I only now pulled the trigger on it, jumper is just something I liked in one of the stores.

The Gears controller I picked up because I needed a new controller for borderlands 3 and wanted something more interesting than the usual black controller.

The final thing I picked up this weekend is a pre order for the super deluxe edition of borderlands 3 on PC. (Its technically not a london pick up since I bought it when I got home but still thought id add it to the post.)

Well... In my everyday life I'm most definitely living in the XXIst century ^o^

 

Then some WEs, it's either in the middle-ages or in some fantasy world depending on which Live Action RPG we're participating to. ^o^

Plus, my daughter loves Medieval Fairs, but is not really into the Live Action yet, BUT she wants to have her costumes all the same.. And it's more fun to go in a Mediaval Fair when you're dressed just like it... It makes you truly appreciate buttons and zippers 😛

Faire is a period spelling of Fair. Besides, I was actually asking which Faire/Fair (or Festival) you went to.

 

I ask because I've worked at five diffferent Renaissance Festivals in Arizona and California and attended five others in the SSA.

Ah! Sorry for misunderstanding again :-S

Well... I'm almost sure you've never heard of it as it's a Medieval Fair in a small country in Northern Europe...

It was in a small city named Diddeleng. They have their annual Medieval Fair there each september and it's really very nice.

I gots a box.IMG_0226.thumb.jpg.d16d4021d0af5f64e0aef4e3de75dccf.jpg


Waste of time

Candour and lies

For what I left behind

I know the price was high

 

No tears to cry

No words to make it right

But now I know

That home is where my heart desires.

 

 

Pyo.
