AKA another music collection filler entry while I try to think of something more interesting to post

Posted Image

from top to bottom:

- Weezer (blue album)
- Pinkerton
- Weezer (green album)
- Maladroit
- Make Believe
- Weezer (red album)
- Raditude
- Hurley (deluxe edition)
- Death to False Metal
- Everything Will Be Alright in the End

also pictured are my Weezer T-shirt and officially licensed Weezer Snuggie™.

band just released a new single which was kind of disappointing, especially coming after Everything Will Be Alright which is their best album in years. still cautiously optimistic about their rumored new album though, which is speculated to be another self-titled album, most likely a white album. here's hoping they don't screw it up.


Blind Guardian

(L-R: Somewhere Far Beyond, Imaginations from the Other Side, and Nightfall in Middle-Earth)

about 10 days ago I dropped $24 on a set of three classic Blind Guardian CDs from Japan, and to my surprise, they arrived today. they’re all the original Japanese pressings with bonus tracks and booklets in both English and Japanese, although Nightfall in Middle-Earth is missing the obi strip which is slightly disappointing but not unsurprising. really nice to finally own these albums, especially copies as cool and special as these.


Sixth Metalversary

Posted by Scythey , Oct 25 2015 · 127 views

on this day six years ago I made my first foray into the world of heavy metal music with the album As Daylight Dies by Killswitch Engage.

up to that point I'd really only listened to generic radio rock and alternative bands. I heard their rather misleading single “Starting Over” on the radio and really liked it, but the album that was from wasn’t out yet, so I picked up As Daylight Dies from Walmart one night instead. as soon as the first song started I was floored. I’d never heard anything like it before. wasn’t sure whether I loved or hated what I was hearing at first, but eventually it grew to be the former.

my tastes have changed and diversified a lot since then, but that album really opened up a whole new musical world for me and it'll always hold a special place in my heart. gonna listen to it tonight to mark the occasion.

gaming, Life Is Strange
AKA hipster Steins;Gate

played through the final episode last night and I don't think I've ever felt more broken by a piece of fictional media than I do by that ending


should I actually use this blog for stuff?

Posted by Scythey , Oct 18 2015 · 192 views

like the title says. I used to update this pretty often but for the past couple years I've only really used it to post music collection updates that nobody reads, with the occasional random musing here or there. I've got a tumblr (which I so can't link here) where I do most of my actual blogging and updates and stuff, but it feels weird having a blog here and doing absolutely nothing with it. I just don't know what to do with it. I'm not exactly the picture of activity on this site (especially considering my interest in Lego/Bionicle is below 0% at this point, so I rarely if ever post in those subforums) but I'm still more active in COT and stuff than I am here in my own blog.

I also used to have it pretty well decked out with graphics and stuff but now it's about as bare-bones as you can get.

so yeah, suggest stuff I can post here, I guess. this blog used to be semi-active and fairly popular and now it's just dead.


The GazettE

Posted by Scythey , Oct 04 2015 · 98 views

instead of a full collection update, this is just something I got that I find particularly cool.

about a month ago I ordered a pair of CDs by the Japanese rock band The GazettE, imported straight from Japan. today, they both arrived.

on the left is Dim and on the right is Division (the Batman symbol isn't part of the artwork, that's just the reflection of my shirt)

the coolest of the two is definitely Dim, which I got in the 2-disc limited edition. it comes packaged in a hologram slipcase with artwork on each side that changes as you move it.

front: 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5

back: 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5

in addition to the standard CD case, the slipcase also houses a CD-sized photo book.

easily one of the coolest packages in my collection.

BONUS: enjoy this framed picture of a squirrel that I have on my desk.

new album The Ride Majestic dropped yesterday, got my pre-order copy in the mail today. it's so good, probably my #2 favorite album of the year for now.

from top to bottom:

- Steelbath Suicide (Century Media 2000 reissue)
- The Chainheart Machine
- A Predator's Portrait (2003 German re-press)
- Natural Born Chaos
- Figure Number Five
- Stabbing the Drama (US digipak edition)
- Sworn to a Great Divide (limited edition, if that wasn't obvious)
- The Panic Broadcast
- The Living Infinite

- The Ride Majestic (limited edition)

also owned, but not pictured:

- "Sweet Demise" (The Panic Broadcast bonus track, bought digitally)

once my birthday rolls around and I get the inevitable Amazon gift card, I'll probably shell out the $20 for a copy of the Asia-exclusive Beyond the Infinite EP imported from Japan.
