Photography question
Aug 18, 2014 - 6:13 AM - by Freak
Freak's Avatar I'm after some camera advice.

We're going on honeymoon to Iceland in February. We're hoping to see the Northern Lights. I know for a fact that neither of my current point and shoot cameras will be able to cope with night shots so if we are lucky enough to see the lights, I won't be able to take any decent photos on them. Even in daylight, my camera phone takes better photos than my actual cameras.

Can anyone recommend a camera that would be able to take decent photos in Iceland (scenery, etc. in daylight, lights at night) which wouldn't be too much of a stretch for someone who has only ever tinkered with the settings on a point and shoot?

I'm know I'm asking ahead of time but I'd like to get the new camera early so I have time to practice with it before we go.

Thanks!

Recommend me some new (not "nu") metal music
Aug 19, 2014 - 2:27 AM - by Taustin Powers
Taustin Powers's Avatar I'm in the mood for some new grooving heavy stuff. Problem is, I seem to have reached that age where I only buy cd's from bands that have been around 20+ years now. The last two metal albums I bought that I really dug were "The Blackening" by Machine Head and "Cold Day Memory" by Sevendust.

Some favorite metal albums are Pantera's "Vulgar Display..." and "Far Beyond Driven", most of Machine Head's stuff, Anthrax's "Sound of White Noise" and "We've Come for you all", most of Sevendust's stuff, some Slipknot tracks...

What are some younger/newer bands I should check out? I heard some stuff by Perephery which sounds pretty good, but maybe a little too "polished". I don't like dramatic/theatrical vocals. I like a nice groove to it, and a certain brutal/gritty feel.

Any suggestions?

(If you post youtube videos, please mention what they are - a lot of the time the videos are not displayed in my country due to copyright issues)

Men's Fashion/Clothing/Shoes thread
Sep 10, 2011 - 11:55 PM - by King Kashue
King Kashue's Avatar I wanted to mention [url=http://www.josbank.com/]this great sale at Jos. A. Bank[/url] for anyone who is looking for suits. 40% off the 1st, 60% off the 2nd, 70% off the 3rd, 80% off the 4th. If anyone needs to create a wardrobe from scratch, you can get 4 suits for the price of 1.5.

And since since several threads have been started seeking advice when interviewing, etc., I figured a thread dedicated to the general subject would be a useful resource, so here it is.


As a note, I'm definitely buying [url=http://www.josbank.com/menswear/shop/Product_11001_10050_101830]this suit[/url], because it's something [url=http://blogs.villagevoice.com/runninscared/don%20draper.jpg]Don Draper would wear[/url] and I'm a follower...


Edit: As a note on the sale, the website's shopping cart doesn't seem to be working correctly, so if you take advantage, figure out what you want and then place the order by phone.

2015 NFL Thread

King Kashue's Avatar Let's get this started on a 'realistic appraisal of where the NFL's priorities are' note:

The National Football League has decided that smoking pot is 8 times worse than [url=http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nfl-shutdown-corner/nfl-suspends-ray-rice-for-two-games--report-145355380.html]beating a woman unconscious and dragging her through a public place (on video)[/url].

The NFL - "We could give a shit about 45% of our fanbase, I mean, they probably deserved it, mirite?"

NotFSI's Avatar Thought this was too important to put in the gamer/gaming thread

Exactly what it says on the tin.
