Calling All Internets
« on: May 25, 2008, 11:10:01 PM »

Ok, I've been looking for a pretty long time, but have yet to find the one thing that would make my life complete (because I'm shallow.

This one item would be a good pair of either classic blast or flight goggles. The kind with good leather straps and either glass or very hard plastic lenses, that'll last a long time.



This is also a thread for anyone else that can't find something they want people to be keeping their eyes open for, be it torrents, items, or anything that exists on the internet.

Atome Fabrik makes some interesting goggles.  The site seems to be down at this very moment, but Warren Ellis linked to it and a picture of some of their work on his blog recently.  Not exactly the blast/aviator goggles you've got in mind, but an option if you want to go a bit stranger.

For the "I want goggles, but I don't want to see" crowd.

I know that the Kinokuniya bookstores have non-translated manga, but you might be able to order some from their website.

Kinda been wanting to get a pair myself, for skiing. Probably one of the only times I can justifying wearing them without looking like a douche!

Then again:

I've had good relations with Sasuga Books in the past.

Anybody know what's decent for a TV Tuner card these days?  Specifically for playing my Pee-Ess-Too and Wee on.  Don't mind having to swap out gpus if it means an upgrade from my 7950GTX, but I only have one PCI-E slot and my tower is too badly thought out to handle anything double-stacked (like the 8800, GOD DAMN YOU).

Tried an external TV-to-monitor box but it contracted the curse of suck.  My sister's using it now.  I want something that feeds off my pretty, pretty PC's graphic capabilities.

Ry: My friend Kristie loves goggles, and she usually buys them at anime conventions, or she has one nice set that actually came from a hardware store.  You can unscrew the lenses and everything.

And you need goggles so you can be a proper steampunk engineer.

I was wondering when you'd get here, Silversong. I never got a chance to thank you for your wonderful PDS 07 gift!

I got the goggles a little while ago. They will undoubtedly show up in Otakon photos.

Now I ask and ask, and ask for more. If anyone comes across any working source of any number of songs by "Trouble Over Tokyo" I'd be much obliged. I can only live with just two songs in youtube quality for so long.

What about Doktor Sleepless/Dr. Horrible-style goggles?

Because it's never too early to think about Halloween costumes.
