Happy Thanksgiving!

Photobucket

Trivia: Did you know that the Japanese word for Turkey is Shichimenchou? That means "bird with the seven faces".

WTF does that mean, Japan?! WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?!

Oh, according to the wiki, it's because when turkeys get excited, their skin color changes from, red, to blue, to purple.

Garo in Wonderland?

Guess this is the movie poster. Looks pretty good! The text on the upper right says "Going to the promised land... all alone." Hopefully that's not literal or it'll be as boring as Red Requiem.

Kamen Rider Wizard lyrics

Oh yeah, for the last two weeks now we've been using the corrected opening lyrics for Wizard. Meant to mention it with the release of the music video.

Thread / Wiki

Difference between the music video versions:

-We had an HD raw for the normal version.

-I bought the Ikusa/Battle first press version which came with the Battle music video. This version focused on the fighters. This is just a DVD so there's no HD version for it.

-I didn't pick up the Oni/Kiryuin version because I had no idea what it was. But I think it'd be safe to say it's the version that focuses on the singer, so screw that.

What's gagiin and boubou mean?

Photobucket
Burn, baby, burn!

Gagiin

It's probably like shakiin which is just the sound effect for a flash sound. Either that or it's the sound of scraping metal sliding into place.

Boubou

This one's easier to answer since I can just grab it off a dictionary. It's the sound of something burning. http://dictionary.goo.ne.jp/leaf/je2/69893/m0u/%E3%83%9C%E3%83%BC%E3%83%...

More Wizard Splashes please

Could we get more of them? (1280x720 format) You guys are the best. Thanks!

Super Sentai Secret

Photobucket I'm not really sure what this is, but I was intrigued by the secret at the end of the list. Hard to believe the next Sentai is just around the corner. The logos are cool at least.

Thread

Edit:

Alright, I'll do the research instead of lazywebbing it.

http://p-bandai.jp/item/item-1000078483/?TOP_B

Looks like it's a pin collection. Oddly it says secret pins, so is there going to be more than one? I thought they were just coyly hinting that it'd have the next Sentai series logo. Oh yeah, that must be the case. Deadline is December 14. Ships next March

Rereading it, there's only 37 types. Considering the 36 Sentai teams are already known, it couldn't be "secret pins". Must be an English screw up on the Japanese part.

Streaming to your Device

So I tested out PS3 Media Server, and it's pretty good. It plays the files that TVserity couldn't, it's free, plus I like the way they structure their files better. Plus, despite its name, you can use it for various devices besides the PS3.

So check it out:

Oh man, I can't wait till we get to the episode where the MegaRangers meet the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!

Thread

Continuing from last night's blog post, forum user kmizuno recommends using the PS3 Media Server for streaming from computer to PS3. Thanks for the suggestion!

Thread / http://www.ps3mediaserver.org/

TLDR version of previous post

Previously I was copying the files onto flash drives, sticking them in my PS3 to play the videos.

With the current setup, I'm just using the program to stream the videos using the computer's wifi to the console.

Using Tversity to stream to a PS3

So I might be a bit behind on this, but I finally bit the bullet and turned my PC into a media server. It was all pretty simple actually. Just got the software from TVersity (had a license fee of 4 bucks, pretty cheap), turned on the wifi on my pc and that was pretty much it. Turned on my PS3 and the media server was in the Video section.

Before, I was putting the files on flashdrives with FAT32 file systems on them. It was alright, but this way will save me a step. I tried a few of our releases as well as some stuff from Youtube, and it looked pretty nice (Even the SD stuff, surprisingly enough).

Unfortunately, there's still a problem with pre-2009 xvid encodes which simply won't play at all in this method.

Anyway, just thought I'd blog about it to let people that they always have options when playing back our files.
