Anvil - Metal on Metal. Anyone who wants to try out something from this album, title track, Mothra and March of the Crabs are recommended songs.

David Bowie - Station to Station. See, there's my non-metal listenings but I have put more out of place stuff on my playlist lately. Some I've come to like. I find myself digging Blondie's music now.David Bowie might be one of the most underappreciated artists out there.
He is and isn't. His hits are more than popular whereas the rest of his stuff is indeed underappreciated at times. I find that his whole range of music isn't quite as accessible as what others have had but it's good that his artistic works have still given him success.
Bought Floyd's "The Wall", Purple's "Fireball" and "Burn", Hendrix's "Are You Experienced" and "The Cry of Love". Ok, you can argue that all those have helped to develope metal in some way or another. But here's the non-metal purchase for today: Kraftwerk's "Autobahn". :D
Can't argue with the selection of stuff that you got. I could do with more Kraftwerk myself and I'm sure I did listen to Autobahn on Spotify at some point. I would like to pick up some CDs this month but I think I really should see about getting a new external hard drive. The one I have now is becoming a bit of a problem due to hard drive space just not being big enough for me anymore so I want to get something bigger that also doesn't have to use a power cable just to run it.
I can't argue with it being one of the most popular consoles of all time. All you need to do is look at the list of games they had and then realise how fucking impressive it was.And today we have games like Bubsi 3D and Big Rigs. XD
Back then we had Shaq Fu. :P

Got a bit of time before going out for some karaoke (which is my usual for Thursdays starting from the start of this year) so replies time!oooo karaoke! sounds like a blast!
It always is. I find that I'm probably doing it too often now since it's a weekly thing and there's karaoke events at other places hosted by the same guys so sometimes I'll do karaoke twice in a row. I think this Thursday I may end up giving it a miss due to aunt's birthday. I could possibly work around it but missing it out once in a while won't hurt me. At least with that it'll feel fresher the following week.
I always like a bit of chiptune/8-bit music but could do with more of it on my laptop. Best I can do for now is grab NES soundtracks. Over the last month or two I have been on a downloading spree for video game soundtracks but now I feel I'm just at the bottom of the barrel for downloading soundtracks of games that I'm familiar with.i do the same as well; i can never go wrong with a Megaman soundtrack from the NES.
Mega Man? Fuck yeah! Sadly, I've only got Mega Man 2 soundtrack on my laptop but it's better than nothing. I'm sure you can pick just about any Mega Man music and still be good with it.
I wasn't sure what you two enjoy from music generally but it's good to introduce people to stuff I'm familiar with and even vice-versa. I'm understanding that metal isn't for everyone but if one who isn't so big on it wants to try out something once in a while, I can always lend them in on a few records here and there.good deal, good deal. i can respect that very much. i'm always open to new music tastes and all that jazz.
I see what you did there with the last word. :P With me and music right now, I'm still trying to get through all of my dad's music and this is bound to take a long time. He's got hundreds of compilation albums and I'm gonna need to remove duplicates along the way.
They still do tank awards but bringing them out hasn't been all that reliable for the last few years. I'm not even sure if we were meant to have tank awards at Pico Day last weekend. 2012's tank awards were postponed so long that it went over into mid 2013. The last tank awards that were hosted on Pico Day or early on in the year was in 2011 when I won it.maybe they have their hands busy with other stuff. would be neat to see tank awards resurface.
I never try to guess what's going on their end so whenever they can get the latest tank awards out I'll just have to leave it to them. I just hope it won't be carried over into the following year like how it was for 2012 awards.
Incase you wonder what was the cause for me to win user of the year, it was due to my extreme contributions to icon and genre modding at the time.16,000 icons is quite the number! props to ya
It sure is. At the time that was roughly 10% of the whole portal covered by myself alone. I wish I had did more but it was one of those if you stop, it will take a while to get started again. I haven't done any icons in two years and I'm sure there's still loads of submissions left that are needing to be upgraded to the thumbnail format.
I do have a Street Fighter II game but only on the Mega Drive and I gotta say, Mega Drive controls for fighting games isn't all that great. Well, unless you had the six button controller as opposed to the normal one but I was never sure how that worked out.i could never get used to it lol
I found out the start button was the way to switch to kick/punch moves... Yeah...
My sister borrowed REmake off a friend of hers at the time and we both played it. I can't remember how far she got but I enjoyed it enough to pick up the game for myself. This is where my interest in Resident Evil began. It wasn't too long after that I got RE4 and that's become one of my favourite games of all time. Then it was a matter of playing 0, 2 and 3 all on the Gamecube (I know, ports for 2 and 3). I missed out on Code Veronica sadly and while I have it on the PS3, I haven't even gotten in that far.i was let down that they did not remake the second and third as they had the first. it would have been amazing!
I would have loved remakes of 2 and 3 as well. When picking them up on the Gamecube, I actually thought they were remakes but it turns out they were not. I'm still happy with getting them, though.
Admittedly, I felt I was put off from Super Smash Bros. but I think I can have enough fun with the 3DS variant. I still need a Wii U but I'm all for having more games on the 3DS. Plus, I know somewhere to go for StreetPass events.i'm lacking in a WiiU as well, though i'm aiming to pick it up soon. alongside the new Smash Bros. there is Mario Kart 8 that i am looking forward to!
Thankfully the Wii U is starting to pick up with its games now. However, I really want them to make a new Metroid game. That out of everything will make me most positive with getting a Wii U.
where do you go for streetpass events? i streetpass some people occasionally, but are there certain spots to go to for that?
There's a place in Liverpool that do them. Even without that venue I tend to pick up enough to hit the max capacity, even when I'm in Birkenhead!
