Preordered a Sony Xperia 1 Mark 2 (awful name). 
Comes with the WH-1000XM3 headphones which I’ve eyed up for a while now.

It’s an expensive phone, (£1100 outright or thereabouts) but the o2 refresh trick means it will cost about £790 and the free headphones too make it a pretty sweet deal. If I don’t like the headphones I could sell them on and make it even cheaper!

They’re really good headphones, I’ve got some myself. Only real issue is that the touch controls sometimes get triggered as I’m taking them off.

Shit just got real.

Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 3rd Gen USB Audio Interface: Amazon.co.uk ...

Had a fiddle with this the night before last. It's goooooood. Time to start making some music! Just need to find the time now. :D 

Edit: Should probably mention what this is. It's an audio interface, meaning that you plug your guitar lead jack into the socket and can then record your playing.

Very nice! I have quite a few friends that have made big item fitness purchases over the last few months that definitely usually wouldn’t have. Hope it helps you get in the shape you want!

The bigger issue is changing my diet. But I'm hoping to do 30 minutes each morning on that thing when it turns up and hoping that'll inspire me to eat better too.

Now you're moving onto an actor whose films I can fully appreciate. 

As for Jackie Chan, I'm assuming you will be getting The Tuxedo in due course, assuming you haven't already?

I have no idea what that is, but I'm certain you overpaid.

You'd be surprised how much GameCube broadband adapters go for. They've become quite collectable, as they can still be used to some degree.

Gone a bit overboard getting stuff for the new bike

Right now i'm focusing on his Chinese movies. I'll start getting the American stuff once Dragon Lord and Fearless Hyena arrive from 88 Films. Still have to pick up Drunken Master also. Then I'll start working on the rest of the Schwarzenegger films.

Finally a microSD card for my Switch :D

And later today I will most likely buy the following on PS4:

It's on sale for 15 bucks and almost out of early access. Seems like a good time to jump back into the rogue-lite shooter genre :peace:

Think it's time for a new model. My PC is about 15 years old (gfx replaced about 4 years ago). Just need to get a friend to assist me with adding a disc drive and we'll be sweet.

Pre-ordered the new F1 game so it’ll be ready to download as soon as available

I think this will be the last PS4 game I play before the PS5 comes along.

My projector screen has been held up by adhesive hooks for the last year because the only wall it could go on is too weak to screw or drill anything into and it fell down again yesterday for the third time this summer so I’ve finally given up. It’s a shame as I loved the size but to be fair not being able to use it on really hot days because of the heat it pumps out and needing to upgrade to 4K for the next gem consoles made the decision a bit easier.

Anyway, I’ve grabbed myself a 55” LG 4K tv, a new stand for it to get it a bit higher against the wall (on the same wall as the screen was so can’t mount it for the same reasons) and a couple of 4K blu rays to test it all out.

I'm secretly hoping my TV dies soon so I can buy a fancy new one, but that stubborn bastard is too damn strong.

Definitely recommend Samsung TVs for longevity - twats.
