‘Stripspektakel’ haul

Dus afgelopen zondag (in de wandelgangen ook wel 'gisteren' genoemd), was ik naar het STRIPSPEKTAKEL in Arnhem. Van het spektakelen kwam het echter nietecht, want er waren meer verkopers dan potentiële klanten, courtesy of het 'goede' (zo noemen weermannen het in ieder geval) weer en de wedstrijd Deutschland – Britfaggia. Om 15 uur begon iedereen dus al in te pakken, en dit terwijl de beurs eigenlijk tot 17 uur zou duren. Een epische faal die de meeste aanwezigen waarschijnlijk meer geld heeft gekost dan opgebracht, en mij overigens ook twee uur in een stomend hete auto en €20 aan benzine heeft opgeleverd. NEUK JA!
Daar eindigde de fail by the way nog niet, want er waren letterlijk bijna alleen maar 'strips'. Oftewel: Europese troep die ik niet lees. De rest waren eigenlijk LP en CD stands. Er waren ongeveer twee stands met comics, en één daarvan was fucking overpriced ("SUPER sale: 70 cent bovenop de dollarprijs!!!" … srsly? Do you have a fucking clue what the current exchange rate is?) maar gelukkig viel er bij de tweede nog wat leuks te halen want ze waren al half ingepakt en ik kwam als een schattige klant nog even door de dozen snuffelen dus uiteindelijk heb ik 13 single issues voor €0,75 per stuk gekocht.

Uiteindelijk is de haul dus toch nog redelijk uitgevallen:

Haul

Zoals gezegd dus 13 comics: Issue 0-7 van Battle Chasers, en issue 1-5 van Soul Saga; 4 dvd's (a €2 per stuk: awesome!) Escape from L.A., Escape from New York, Street Fighter en Godzilla (allemaal fancy collector's editions) en een paar bijzonder goed uitgezochte cd's die blind op de cover zijn gekocht: Lowgold – Counterfeit, The Accidental – Wolves, Parisman – A place that Glows en Underwater Pilots – Tranquil Places. Stuk voor stuk eigenlijk best awesome cd's a €1, which is pretty damn nice.

Kurt Russell

In de achtergrond zag je misschien ook de Invader Zim dvd box die ik van een /b/tard kocht voor €28 terwijl 'ie currently voor rond de €230 op eBay verkocht wordt (en voor rond de €180 ook daadwerkelijk gekocht wordt). Er zit een klein deukje in het dak, maar voor €160 korting neem ik die er wel bij.

ZIM

Binnenkort komt er echt een ZONDVLOED aan stuff binnen, dus expect meer van deze soort posts in de nabije toekomst :3c

Are you hyped for the #WinterOlympics yet?
Because the Korean government would really, really like you to be #hype!

I've never really been into the Olympics, except for that one time when the guy who was born in the same town I lived in (#GianniRomme) was raking in Gold Medals like it was one of those coin pusher games - and even then it was mostly because my school was making a big deal out of it.
As such, I'm not very interested in the Winter Olympics either, even though this is the first time I'd be able to attend the events myself and watch my country's athletes get burried in speed skating medals.

Still, I hope Korea will put on a show - and a performance - to be remembered for years to come.

Being a Starcraft fan in Korea feels a lot like what I'd imagine being a rich acquaintance of Ronaldo would feel like for a football fan - you get front row seats to all the major games, get to meet legends like Messi, Robben or Buffon (in our case, Byun, SoO or Stats) and get to ask for their signature pretty much whenever you want - all without paying a single penny.

The professional scene has been taking hit after hit since I started getting interested in it, and I'm afraid it'll never be the same as it once was, but I'm glad that in 2018, as well, I'll be able to enjoy some of the best e-Sports the world has to offer.

#WingsOfLiberty down, #HeartOfTheSwarm and #LegacyOfTheVoid to go.

이제 인스타로 새 책을 받을 수 있는 이벤트가 있어서 당연히 참여해야지~

In Korea, the past and the present are always living together in some sort of awkward balance.
Traditional norms, values and traditions clash with the influence of a rapidly modernizing and developing society; pride in one's roots compete with a constant need to move forward, and historical buildings vie for room to breathe in the middle of a metropolis.
I hope Korea manages to move forward without forgetting the things that make it unique.

Fuck you, Korea. I love you.
