kevinlowl3 years ago#33236469You listed 80s synthpop in your music section so I thought you'd definitely know them. What 80s synthpop do you listen to?

Well, I know their big hit, True Faith (cool video for that one), but I don't listen to them regularly. Men Without Hats and Pet Shop Boys are my most listened to bands from back then.

But most of the synthpop I listen to is actually instrumental. Over at bandcamp.com you can find a lot of music you'll never hear on the radio, and I've found groups like Betamaxx and Robert Palmer who make great instrumental synthpop stuff. I like instrumental because I can listen to it while doing other things; if I listen to music with lyrics it distracts me from anything else I'm doing. That's also why I like anime soundtracks a lot, since there's a lot of good instrumental-only tracks that I enjoy, and it's another way to 'support' the shows I like.

kevinlowl3 years ago#33182031Do you listen to New Order?
Occasionally, yes. I like most of their stuff, and their videos of course.

Edit: ah, sorry. I thought at first you were referring to the group World Order. No, I don't listen to New Order, I'm afraid.

Actually it's not late for me. As I'm responding it's my birthday but everyone else's birthday wishes came in on the 28th. Thanks man!

kevinlowl5 years ago#10899528Hey, how was KanColle Spring 2016 event for you? Did you get Iowa? Why am I asking this, of course you did, you're a veteran admiral. :D

I had a very bad month for playing kancolle, so I wasn't able to get Iowa unfortunately. I was able to clear up to E-6 though. I was on E-7 trying to clear when the servers went down >_< The sad thing is I really had the resources to complete it, I just really didn't have the time. I ended with 140k fuel and ammo and 150k steel and like 45k bauxite. I will be donating those to the "get myself Bismarck fund" after I finish taking a break. That last event was pretty hard on me. I hope you were able to get what you wanted from the event though!

kevinlowl6 years ago#3172541I got a knockoff one from this ITEM #174214 lol. Though, I could use a real HK416. What is this line which you speak of, can I have a look? And thanks so much for asking!
No problem. I love helping out fellow gun nuts :D

The line in question, after some looking around, is called "U.S. Marines" by the Excite company. Their toys are, for a lack of better words, not really good. However, because they provide a lot of over-sized weapons, they fit well with Figmas strangely enough.

So here is the M27 IAR (I couldn't find a good online picture, so here's mine)

Now, seeing as this company isn't a "high-end" company the end result isn't as fancy as other lines. I won't line, up close it looks rather terrible. The details are all there, though, but problematically the model in question is "mirrored", so one side looks like the other. Therefore you see two bolt-catch, two firing switches, etc.

This being said, the scale is still rather appropriate for Figmas and the like. Might be a tad small, but still looks good and fits without any problems so long as the figure has a "trigger" hand. The foregrip also doesn't get in the way (and that's good because it's not removable).

All and all, it's not a bad weapon but not on par with Little Armory by far. But I got mine for about six bucks, so what do you expect? I should also mention that TRU likes to carry rather "generic" military brands around, and some times their weapons are surprisingly good. For example,

Not sure about you, but that SCAR and AR-15 sniper look good to me!

Hope this helps!

Hey quick question. Are you still looking for HK416s? I ask because there is a line of American figures that offer a rather nice M27/416

kevinlowl6 years ago#3062839I came here to ask the same question lol.
@God Yagami, I hope I don't come off as "stupid as fuck" lol, but seriously though, why did you choose to learn Chinese over Japanese when you're into anime?

LMAO |D -- No don't worry.
It's because I study foreign trade in college. So I decided to learn chinese too since it's important for business. I hope to learn japanese someday too - at least it will be easier after learn chinese...
I just get tired when people are like "it doesnt matter you have to learn japanese because you like anime", wtf! I don't like sushi and I hear the same all the time :'(
"How come you don't like it? You are an otaku you have to eat sushi"

Japan have some importance in our economy (import/export) but it's veeeeery small compared to some countries as China, USA and Latin América.

Haha that was a surprise to see this comment. I love M&VS and this style of music so much, like in Drive.
