  1. I've been Original Saku for 12+ years, so that's always been the same... but I dig up some stuff on my ancient photobucket account from 10 years ago... I'm pretty sure I used all of these in the very early years of TW, alos here's one that precedes this forum from myspace also a bonus gem from the the old days when Jake (Spike760) was heavily into advertising (spamming) the forum all over the place.
  2. Ten years ago on this exact day my thirteen year old self was browsing myspace, like most kids my age back then did in their free time, when I came across a post on a Jrock group I frequented at the time. The post was by a "Jake" advertising a brand new Jrock forum that he and a friend created just earlier that day. At the time I was chomping at the bit for any new way to discover new Japanese rock music (VK in particular), I immediately registered and became the fourth member of that brand new empty forum. That forum's name was Tainted World and the Jake and friend in question were none other than Spike760 and Ito. Since that day I have had many ups and downs with this community for better and worse. I've discovered a thousand or more bands, talked with hundreds of people from all corners of the world, made dozens of friends and like minded acquaintances, and even made a few enemies as well. I have witnessed every drama thread/post/chat log that this forum has generated, participated in profound thought invoking discussions that have sprouted up in various topics over the course of a decade, and even was here to witness the almost catastrophic implosion of the site back in 2010-2011 that led to the current domain name. I became a moderator and for a time actually did my job quite well (LOL) this gave me a direct line to grow the community in other ways than just music, in those efforts I would like to believe that the anime and video game fans of the community found this place a little more accommodating and welcome. In ten years my musical taste has gone through multiple transformations that were no doubt in big part due to the people here in this community. I have grown as a person due to my time here, I've learned how to deal with life's unfortunate circumstances and how to cope when things go bad. This place has been a eternal sanctuary for me in my depressing and boredom filled times. I'm now twenty four years old and no longer the child I was when I came to this place, that in itself is a little sad, since my most fun and memorable moments were from those early years when I was still in middle and high school just trying to find a place I could fit in and kill some time. But one thing is for sure... This place is a second home for me, no matter how busy my life gets I know that I can come back here and just be myself and feel good about it. Ten years? I say that's not enough. I won't be satisfied until I can say I've been apart of this place for 20 years, what the hell fuck it. 30 years! Why not? WE CAN KEEP THE DREAM ALIVE AS LONG AS WE BELIEVE! ~ Saku
  3. I'm down
  4. Kotaku is cancer as far as I'm concerned, stopped going there years ago. It's a bunch of clickbait-y circlejerk articles and a bunch of random shit they try to pass off as industry news, but really most of the time they're just grasping at straws trying to stay relevant. Also more on a personal note, whoever over there that does the anime REC articles, has really shite taste most of the time, in my opinion.
  5. I'm actively playing a lot of different games right now... Gravity Rush 2 Trying to find the time to finish this game. I really love this series, but it's definitely being overshadowed by more recent games. Nioh Love this one to death, such good combat and challenging mechanics. It's probably gonna be a while before I finish it though, not really on the top of my list to play atm. Horizon Zero Dawn Fucking Good shit right here! Talk about making a good open world game that doesn't bog you down with a bunch of checklist type fetch quests, just a solid open world RPG that's trimmed all the tedious awful practices of most other games in the same genre. The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild Yeah this is the one that's taking most of my time and attention right now... All I can say is the six year wait was worth it, they really delivered what a lot of fans have been clamoring for for a very long time. This is pretty much a reinvention of Zelda in the best way possible and it just works. Somehow they made an open world that just feels alive and is absolutely gigantic in scale but doesn't feel empty or boring. BotW's open world is really a industry marvel as far as I'm concerned, It feels so well thought out and just captivating that I boot the game up and without any direction or plan I just get lost doing random shit for hours that actually feels fun and memorable. Persona 4 Golden Doing a max social link play through right now in preparation for P5. probably the second most played game right now next to Zelda just because P5 is less than 3 weeks away (I can't believe it either lol) and obviously I want to be done in time for launch. Also it is a undubbed ver. of the game being played on my CFW vita, Japanese voice actors are too good XD 2017 is legit going down as one of the greatest years for video games, this first quarter alone is just unreal with how many quality games that have come out, even more than the ones I just mentioned. 2017 truly the year of dreams P.S. I'm still playing FFXV from time to time, especially for the new timed quests. I'm super hype for the Gladiolus DLC later this month! P.S.S. NieR Automata PC release in 4 days! I'm so fucking hype, but holy shit, there's no time! I'm gonna have to either quit my job or stop sleeping to keep up with all these amazing games!
  6. Finished Zeta Gundam now I've started ZZ! Life is good right now Also been watching a bunch of current shows. don;t really feel like listing them right now though... some pretty good shows this season tho.
  7. I'm gonna start this now before I forget and it gets too far into the year
  8. I doubt it, since Ikkyu is a very common Japanese name... It could be reference to this anime of the same name, which in turn is about the famous 15th century Japanese Zen Buddhist monk and poet, Ikkyū Sōjun.
  9. oh man they're actually coming to my city! yep I have to go, I already regret not going to see boris last time they were here.
  10. wow wth happened here today? all this drama and now spammers are attacking... I'm actually having to do some moderation work for once, dusting off that banhammer feels nice LOL

      @CarmelzorsCan you stop hiding behind a bunch of vague accusations and scare quotes? Until you make an actual reference to something specific and with facts and evidence there's no point in taking what you say seriously. If you got a problem just tell us what it is already.

  11. no you're right, BLANKFIELD is the circle. warinside is the the arranger. I tag all my doujin music very specifically, Artist field I always tag as the specific arranger or performer for that song and then the album artist I tag as the circle. I'm too OCD about it honestly VGMDB is your friend in these cases tho. http://vgmdb.net/album/30631
  12. Well the theme was Doujin Music, specifically Touhou arrangements, although there was a few non touhou arrangements thrown in. I'm very much a fan of the doujin scene, but I don't really showcase that part of my taste very often. I love how DIY the scene is at times and it helps to have your own arrangement niche as well. For me I'm a big fan of the Touhou albums, but I've been getting really into the Kancolle arrangement camp lately. Also I'm a big metal fan, but I'd be lying if I said that I haven't neglected that genre in recent years, it doesn't help that outside of a few acts I just can't resonate with the newer metal bands in Japan... The Doujin scene is great for that, theirs a plethora of great power metal and similar genre bands to check out. In hindsight I probably should have changed the theme to something different, when I learned you were my partner... I had a sneaking suspicion that you weren't gonna be feeling it XD honestly I just feel bad that I made you sit through that mammoth of a mix tape and didn't really find anything you truly liked. After all the reason I do these are to promote new music to people and break people out of their musical bias, and if I can find new stuff to listen in the process then awesome. the tracklist in case you're interested; 01 Overture | SUWA by ALICE's EMOTION 02 Mystic Scherzo by Thousand Leaves 03 Baneful B Abject by 龍5150 04 Emergency by ニケ 05 Instead of the Pills by kors k 06 Netsubyou by 岸田教団&The明星ロケッツ 07 DESIRE DRIVE ~ Desire Dream by Demetori 08 Hate 2 Love by Undead Corporation 09 月まで届け、不死の煙 by Eru 10 戦闘フル by ECE-SMZ 11 Plastic mind feat.めらみぽっぷ by Pizuya's Cell 12 幽雅に咲かせ、墨染の桜~ボーダーオブライフ by まらしぃ 13 Dream in a dream by SWING HOLIC 14 迷彩スナイパーBANG by 150P 15 This is the Dead, and I Reached the Deathless. by warinside 16 Program AWAKE by Regnum Caelorum Et Gehenna 17 Finale (Resurrection) by Thousand Leaves Now to get your review going. My partner was @Carmelzorsand they sent me a mix titled "caramelsauceofbleepsandbloops".
  13. A bit of back story real quick. So a few years ago (early 2015 I believe) I re watched the original Mobile Suit Gundam for the first time in many many years, I enjoyed reliving the classic gundam so much that I intended to re watch all of the Universal Century series in order of production all the way up to Unicorn... but shortly after downloading all of the series needed I got extremely sidetracked with stuff (literally I don't remember what ) . Well some time passed and eventually my anime HDD with my archived collection shit the bed and I lost my entire collection last year... welp fast forward to now and I've finally hunted down my collection again and now I'm happily re watching Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam ! Also IBO season two is fucking awesome. I'm really enjoying this series.
  14. You're fine take your time, as my review of your mix will probably still be a day or two away as well
  15. And this is why I fucking love Yoko Taro XD he's the man.
