Treasures and Trinkets from Taiwan

9 May

For lack of a more clever title, this post is exactly as it is–the useless-but-cool merchandise I picked up while in Taiwan the past week.  I had originally planned to go to both Japan and Taiwan during my vacation but with the earthquakes in Japan I had to change my itinerary to Taiwan only.

The week I was in Taiwan, I was fortunate to catch the Taipei Game Expo. It was not as it seemed. I thought I’d get to sample new video games for various consoles but it was actually an arcade game expo… which was still cool, but since 60% of the machines there were slot machines of various types I was a little disappointed with the idea I was so sold on. I took a few photos and videos only to realize, on the back of my industry badge that I wasn’t supposed to take pictures. OH WELL. ENJOY BELOW MWAHAHAHA (It’s not like anyone reads this blog anyway).

Besides the game expo (let me also mention it was right next door to the Vegetarian Food Expo, which was an excellent move because I got hungry after playing games and such, and Taiwanese people are very generous with their food. Needless to say I ate and drank to my liking), I also visited a ton of malls and shopping centers, picking up some random objects.

Clearly I took this photo very quickly.... BB (Super-Deformed) Gundams and Keroro Gunso Plamo Collection model kits

Oh, Yes, I Did Pre-Order The Ultimate Tron Collectors’ Set

14 Apr

I’m surprised I handled myself well enough to not immediately rip open the box upon arriving home after work today to film this un-boxing video. Because I no longer have Christmas presents to look forward to, I have to occasionally order material objects to fill that void in my life.

Since I felt it was a bit hard to show exactly what this collectors’ set included, aside from beautiful Disney packaging, I decided that a video would be a pretty good idea. You also get to see who we are (er, just me, this time), unless you’re my Facebook friend. Then you’re just stuck with seeing all my damn blog posts and shitty camera phone pictures of the concerts I go to.

If you:

a) are at work and can’t watch this video, maybe watch it later?
b) are not interested in watching this video, okay :[
c) watched about 2 seconds of this video and think I am ugly and boring, sorry, I am not Felicia Day :[
d) all of the above,

Scroll down.

If you watched the video and would like us to make MORE videos, please leave a nice comment. We will try to find more seemingly interesting things to vlog about. As always, thanks for all your support, we seriously appreciate it!

Spend $107 at tronsoundtrack.com and you get these goodies:

1. A physical copy of the TRON R3CONFIGUR3D (remix) CD. Looks kinda cheesy and reminds me of the Digitalism album cover art :\

Meh.

2. Exclusive Daft Punk poster 27″ x 39″ (glows in the dark… when was the last time I owned anything that glowed in the dark…)

4. 5-disc DVD set including a special lithograph (not really that special), but basically a Blu-Ray 3D version of the movie, for everyone that owns a pair of 3D glasses and a full HD 3D TV (yeah, sure), Blu-Ray 2D version, regular DVD version, digital copy, and most important, a Blu-Ray version of the original Tron movie.
