  1. Listening to this on repeat. The verse of Naofumi (1:08) is incredible. 10/10 highly recommended. Check the rapper (VI Seconds) out too, Shizzy's got it baby.
  2. Its incredible how me living in a third world country smack dab in the Tropic of Cancer has made me practically immune to any temperature below 35 degrees Celsius. For anyone who cares, here's a song for you to chill to: 


    1. Kōyamaki


      Must be the rum.

  3. I have not actually heard of any of these except Shiki and Devil Lady, I'll defo check those out, thanks
  4. Can any of you suggest an anime that, very much like a good horror/thriller movie keeps you at suspense throughout the whole thing? Watched Orphan (2009) recently and I loved how I felt; kinda wanna recreate that
  5. I apologize if I came across that way, and the assumptions were made because your original post lacked in essential details for my response to be somewhat helpful. Otherwise, your story/perspective/anecdote, at face value, didn't make sense to me. I didn't assume that everyone could afford guitar strings either. But if you can't afford a $4 dollar monthly expense, you've got bigger things to worry about, which to me seems reasonable enough of an explanation. It's obvious that I was wrong about you being a beginner, but I see your point overall.
  6. What guitar strings you using? The case of your amp is unfortunate, but there's cheaper alternatives for guitar strings, some specifically made for beginners ergo they have a significantly lower price point. It seems to me you haven't changed your strings in years, which is already a no-go for most guitarists (ideal is a string change every 2 months or so, and that's being generous). Judging from what you've written, I'm also assuming that you're just starting out, cause as much as I understand being attached to your instrument, being crazy about rusted strings isn't something I've noticed in any guitar player I closely follow. Lastly, if you genuinely can't afford any brand of guitar strings, being able to play electric guitar is the last thing you should be worried about.
  7. I've had the fortune of seeing Kimi No Nawa (Your Name) in my life two years ago, 3am in the night, with a couple of my friends on Discord. One of the most surreal experiences of my life. There's very few things that I'd ever rate a 10/10, cause I hate calling things flawless. But I can't find a thing I'd change (I've tried). Not when it took such a wildly different approach to love. Not when it's touched me in a place where nothing else could. This movie's changed my life, and I hope it will yours too (might end up doing a full blown review some other time) Good luck.
  8. I swear to god The Paper Kites has made some of  the most beautiful music I've listened to, bless Aussies.

  9. Death catches us all the same...


  10. Finished playing Outlast. Almost done with Outlast 2. Probably one of the scariest experiences I've ever had. @Kreideprinz have u played outlast yet?
  11. Loved this one. I'm listening to a goddamn nostalgia trip aka Linkin Park, Evanescense (i forgot how to spell this band smh), IconForHire, Green Day, The Killers...all things early 2000s, really. Right now, Im listening to Mr Brightside. It's sooo goood.
  12. This....is an interesting take that I wouldn't have thought of otherwise, thank you. You're right, Light Yagami is blinded. Confused. The world isn't as he sees it, himself isn't as he sees it. He's overidentified too much with what he's trying to enforce, to the point where he's stopped looking at himself to see where he stands. Any impeding hint of guilt is immediately disregarded, as he believes it'll only distract him, despite that voice in the back of his head trying to save him, something he only realizes as he bleeds to death in that staircase. Beautiful point. Obsessive compulsive tendencies do be the end to many a great minds. Overall, Light wanted to do some good, and it's obvious from seeing the anime that he's always been obsessed with the idea of fairness, and he saw the Death Note as his only way to enforce authority, a system of rules that he thinks will help everyone, and sacrifices every ounce of human in him to be a God. And that was his problem. When you lose touch with what's human to become something more, you inadvertently risk becoming something much less, and the confusion between these two is what ends up causing their demise. Light, as a person, is everything that I don't want to become; a person so obsessed over one thing that he tunnel visions deeper and deeper without ever getting any better. He is worth feeling sorry for. One of the only reasons I put Mello and Light up in my most favorite characters from Death Note is for practically the same reason; they're both obsessive compulsive, which means they'd stop at literally nothing to have their ends of the bargain met. These are people you do NOT want to screw with, because it only takes them something like the Death Note (for Light) and the existence of someone better (for Mello) for them to go batshit crazy on whoever tries to stop them.
  13. Hello, I hope you're having a great day :3 


  14. I've never really cared. I don't sport anime merchandise, but it's no secret that I like anime. If wearing merch is your thing, go for it.
  15. It's funny how despite wanting to be Erwin Smith, I always end up relating to Spike Spiegel. Man, that guy's a mood. 


  16. I put three cubes of ice in my glass of lemonade, then refrigerated it for an hour for it to cool even more, and its STILL not enough to help me get through this heat wave in peace. 

    I think I'll go and see if I fit inside the freezer, coz we dont have air conditioning. Keep me in your prayers.

    Context: Today it's 37 degrees celsius, or 98 degrees Fahrenheit

    1. What the Fuck.

      What the Fuck.

      That's pits mate. Wish I could send you some snow. Still having that here.

    2. Ohayotaku


      Been making a run at 90F here all weekend, but hasn’t cracked it yet. Supposed to rain Wednesday & cool things down into the 70s.

      @Wedgy @Ohayotaku Update: Yes, it did rain. But it's still very very hot in here. Not nearly as much as the day this status was originally posted tho. So I haven't officially melted, and am alive and well :3

  17. In the fetal position aka the most common one. However, I think I alternate between positions a lot in my sleep, because I never wake up in the same position I remembered dozing off in. Either way, hugging a pillow/blanket is probably the best (and only way) of putting me to sleep. I have a bolster pillow just for this, and it helps a lot with not only feeling comfortable in bed, but also with chronic loneliness. Something like this...
  18. Kentura Miura, the creator of Berserk, has passed away, at the age of 54. I got the news just an hour ago from an acquaintance. It's sad how I'll get to see no more of the best manga art I've seen in my lifetime. What do you think will happen to the Berserk manga, now that no one's here to continue the story?
  19. Hmmmmmm


    What? That's it...shoo shoo!

      @Ohayotaku wtf 😂😂😂. Also, I'm VERY interested in knowing how onions and raw potatoes are supposed to work 🧐

      @Wedgy The weirdest smell I've smelt....

      Boy, now that I think about it, I don't think I've ever smelt anything that's weird enough for me to remember. I do remember the smell of rotten corpses tho. Reason why I've wanted to donate my dead body to a scientific organization so it can be used for research purposes ever since.

    3. Ohayotaku


      @TobiGotGrenades he always said it would “cut through the phlegm” … yeah, it didn’t need to make sense, he was bigger than you. Guess he thought chicken soup when you’re sick was for wimps 😂 
      Of course as you can see from the labeling, medicine could be kinds sketchy back in those days too.

    4. TobiGotGrenades


      @Ohayotaku Oh man, I know Asian parents all too well for me to be able to understand where they're coming from. 

      Fortunately, I get sick very rarely 😌

  20. Hey, I just noticed how you're from Bangladesh, and I'm from the same country as well. 

    "Ki obostha?"

  21. @Ohayotaku You're not alone. My old man passed away in November, due to COVID. It rained heavy that night, but it felt more fresh, as opposed to dim and melancholy. It felt like I was done with season 1 in my life, and I hope season 2 has a more promising ending. All I have rn is a mother (who's ill with an anxiety disorder) and a younger brother (15M). Dealing with the loss of a pet can be tough too. I had two rabbits that my dad sold when I was a kid coz we were short on money, and we couldn't take care of him any longer. I've never had a pet after that, coz we couldn't afford it any longer. Neither in money, nor in patience. @Zila I'm sorry for your mother. Losing a parent really is painful, usually more than we think it would be. But I didn't have time to grieve. Given how my father was the only source of income in my family, money grew tighter. And I painfully relate to not knowing my dad well. I never asked him personal questions, never tried to get to know him more. Hindsight 2021, he was greater than I could possibly give him credit for. Facebook posts from his colleagues told me the story I'd never bothered to hear from him, the story of how this man came from rags to being not only successful, but also the most charismatic person I've known. He made mistakes, just like any parent parenting for the first time would, and I love him for always acknowledging his mistakes afterwards, being open minded till the very end. I wish we had more time. I wish he got to see me become an adult (he died when I was 16). I wish he got to see me move out, something he'd always wanted to be there for. Takeaway: If you don't know your dad well enough, get to know him. You never know, he might just be the coolest person you've known. Make sure he's alive to know that you do, in fact, appreciate him, more than he thinks he deserves.
  22. If my life ends on a happy note, and I'm fully content, boy will this be a great story.

      @Zila Mine was kinda inspired from this one thing my friend said 

      "Life's shit expect for a few moments of joy. So, stretch those joyful moments. Dont miss a second. LIVE them like they were your last, live them until you start feeling like life is joyful, expect for a few moments of shit"

      And that's exactly why it's always fun to have a sage around as your buddy xD.

  23. Spoiler below for anyone who hasn't watched till S4 in anime
  24. What do you guys think of Ch 139 in Attack on Titan? I read a lot of varied opinions over the Internet and was interested in knowing what you guys had to say about it. Cheers!
