Certainly a strange instrument but also very interesting, love the skill she shows in playing it and here is another example, I have enjoyed the sound and watching her play it so much that I have subscribed to the channel. But what in blue blazes is she wearing in this video?

Oh, it's emulating typical pop-star diva costumery common in most anime for the last 3 decades. Pretty mild by currents standards, and I'm certain the hardcore fans can tell you exactly which anime or manga it is "inspired by".

Anders posted this in the Discord; intrigued, I sought out and found this prior work by the same studios:



Def worth seeking out better quality video on torrent or disc.

It seems that the Chinese version of our anthem is creating a bit of a stir on the internet.

I'm finding those "reaction" videos kind of pointless. Who is this guy? Does he have any expertises besides saying "Ooooh!", "Amazing!", "Wonderful!" and making faces? :roll:

I have no idea, but those kinds of videos are on the increase and cover almost every topic you can think of.

It makes a change from the "unboxing" videos, where someone takes a product out of its box, holds it up to the camera, shows the instruction book, the leads and other bits and pieces, and that's about all. They don't try to use it and put it through its paces.

That's kindof why this thread is here... for our friends to share videos that are in some way actually worth watching.

Spec just didn't get the memo... :rofl:

Let's chalk this one up to "tangentially relevant"... in that any such attention is good for those who create media that is actually worth watching. ;)

Want to play a bit with non-linear chaotic systems and op-amps?
Then have a look on what Mr. Chua has designed.

Yes, i've posted a number of their vids in the TEA... a bit "hype-y", but they do take the time to get good camera happening, which makes a huge difference.

Is this the answer to charging your EV car, charge it while still on the move, like a dodgem car at the fairground, as long as you can miss the supporting pole :lol: :lol: :lol:

Flicking through the many suggested YT videos I receive, I decided to explore this one with the heading "The last electronics store in the United States" which attracted my attention, and boy or boy, what a beautiful store this is, a real treasure trove. I think its highly likely that you could find the precise odd ball item for that restoration product that's been taunting you for years. Does anyone know of anything similar in the UK at all?
