TMA-2 Modular Headphone

Too often when people buy headphones they are not satisfied with the complete package. There is at least one component that could be better. Now, with the TMA-2 Modular Headphone you can choose your own parts in 4 different categories – cables, headbands, ear pads and speaker units.


Solo Stove

We are continuing with featuring the best camping gear there is currently on the market and the product we are about to showcase is one of those simple yet life-saving ones. This is one of the lightest and most efficient outdoor stoves you’ll find around. Also, it is an environmentally friendly cooking device which incorporates secondary combustion for a much more efficient and cleaner burn compared to regular, compact stoves.


I don’t know if this was already translated, but I was looking through my files and found an interview with Ohtaka from 2013 and discarded djinn equip designs for the Kou brothers. They appeared in a booklet that came with the magazine:

A discarded design for Astaroth djinn equip:

Aladdin: ‘On the right is Astaroth djinn equip that appeared in the story and below is a discarded draft. The motif behind the discarded one is a combination of a dragon and a skeleton, and it looks totally cool.’

On the current Astaroth djinn equip:

‘I was lost on the djinn equip for Kouen. I thought about the upcoming developments and imagined how Alibaba, Sinbad and Kouen will look like standing next to each other. I made sure not to have their colors overlap with each other. It makes one wants to see how they’ll look like in color standing next to each other isn’t it? Maybe someday.

A discarded draft for Dantalion djinn equip:

Aladdin: ‘in the image above are two rough sketches for Koumei. Tengu was the inspiration behind them. In here he’s holding his trademark fan as well. I wanted to see it in action, and it’s a shame that they ended up discarding it.’

Leraje djinn equip

Aladdin: ‘the author likes this one as well. I’m amazed by how intricate in their design the accessories on his waist and limbs are. The motif was the grim reaper+metal.’

Have you ever had to improvise/diy a treatment or preventative measure? If so, which was strangest? when I worked at a vets we had a greyhound that kept breaking her tail, so we improvised a tail protector thing out of cotton wool, bandages, and a cardboard tube to act as a buffer when she was wagging her tail and it looked absolutely ridiculous but did the job and it was really interesting trying to devise solutions! question tax(?): i just love this blog. so much. its great. thank you.

Greyhounds (or other dogs with whip-like tail) often injure their tails by wagging them so enthusiastically against hard objects. It’s common to bandage a type of splint around the tail to protect it. Hair rollers used to be commonly used for this, but they don’t have a lot of other uses in the clinic.

We often have to improvise something in veterinary medicine. Lots of our medication and equipment is designed for human medicine, and we just make do. There are more and more vet-specific products on the market, but sometimes they’re unreasonably expensive (a prime example was a vet-registered fluoxetine with beef flavor that was 5x more expensive than human fluoxetine).

This is particularly the case with exotics. While dog front limb splints are manufactures, nobody makes splints for finches or bearded dragons. The most interesting treatment I’ve had to improvise lately is making my own splint for a bearded dragon out of cardboard.

For @ffxiv-art-prompts‘s #003: “ ANY FFXI AF - ESTABLISHED OR CUSTOM”

I decided to go the “custom” route for my own Red Mage AF armor and relic weapon design, combining elements of the old school RDM, FFXI’s version, and recurring elements I’ve encountered in FFXIV’s equipment designs.

Also I don’t have enough fluers de lis in this outfit.

Now back to working on commissions!

“We put our eldest Sister through a new regimen of physical and mental conditioning, and suited her up with modified Protector equipment of my design.”

Big Sister: Combines the strength of a Big Daddy with the ADAM-draining abilities of a Little Sister. They are armored, deadly, and can survive out in the ocean, but are also able to drain ADAM from corpses to power Plasmid abilities.

Along with dashing and slashing attacks, Big Sisters may wield genetic abilities like Incinerate! and Telekinesis. Big Sisters are incredibly agile and can jump up to perch on walls like a Spider Splicer, catching their target unawares.
