I don't think that's the case in Canada. Bank account debits from outside parties need to be pre-authorized at your branch or via online banking.

@  Benbot : (23 July 2019 - 10:04 AM)

That does sound like fun.

@  Dekafox : (23 July 2019 - 09:35 AM)

Fun note: in the US(at least), by default if someone has your routing number and account number off a check, they can pull as much money out as they want with nothing you can do about it until after the fact.

That's why you should keep your under-the-bed money in gold and silver--that won't burn!

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 July 2019 - 02:24 AM)

Disparaging the youth has been a pastime for thousands of years. Pretty much every society we have writing from has some version of "kids these days" at some point.

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 July 2019 - 02:21 AM)

Numfar! dance of pain.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (23 July 2019 - 01:49 AM)

If the USA vanished from Earth prior to millennials (later to be joined by Generation Z) coming of age, would the global community have the same magnitude of disparaging upon youths as a pastime because old boomers are insecure about their inability to handle new technology?

@  Ashley : (23 July 2019 - 12:02 AM)

This wasn't that, this was a "we don't trust banks!" thing

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (22 July 2019 - 11:57 PM)

Well I know when I first got my back pay for disability, some of the paperwork said I couldn't have so much in the bank after 30 days...so I had to take out a huge chunk of cash.

@  Ashley : (22 July 2019 - 11:53 PM)

I know a family who lost thousands of dollars in a house fire because they were literally keeping it under the bed. Don't underestimate the USA's luddism.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (22 July 2019 - 10:39 PM)

The US is filled with people LITERALLY proud of their ignorance of tech. Don't expect the US to be a major power in the next 30 years.

@  Pennpenn : (22 July 2019 - 10:25 PM)

Most people in Australia that I've heard of use electronic transactions for rent (and similar things). I mean, doubtless there are some people who use cash for various reasons of varying levels of ethics, but most require electronic transfers.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (22 July 2019 - 09:22 PM)

But I don't understand Paladin's premise of "allowing the landlord access to one's bank account". I'm pretty sure I have acquaintances who pay monthly by check or automated bank transfer.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (22 July 2019 - 09:15 PM)

I know many lower-end restaurants in the USA take cash only as a probable method of tax evasion. Perhaps that is why some landlords do as well. Alternatively, such people demand cash upfront because they have thin profit margins or whatever and are too afraid of spending the time and effort to pursue someone whose check or electronic payment bounced.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (22 July 2019 - 09:14 PM)

@Nevermore The USA is a place where lots of people can proliferate at being technologically behind. e.g. almost no one accepts or pays by contactless yet despite the inherent security of the process. And by having a population of over 300 million we can generate large quantities of believers in the Luddite fallacy and such.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 July 2019 - 07:59 PM)

I pay by credit card whenever possible for the rewards/points, but utilities don't usually allow that so those I just pay through the online bill payment feature rather than mess around with pre-authorizations

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 July 2019 - 07:57 PM)

Most monthly or whatever payments are done electronically around here, I think. Mine certainly are. Whether by pre-authorized debit, an e-transfer (transfer from one bank account to another), or your bank's online bill payment system/database

@  Nevermore : (22 July 2019 - 07:04 PM)

If I overpaid, it may take several months for them to pay me back the difference. If I underpaid, they're very quick with demanding the difference.

@  Nevermore : (22 July 2019 - 07:03 PM)

Meanwhile, I can write a tax report, but since the employer already deduced the standard legal taxes from my monthly payment, the tax report is also mostly just to let the tax authority determine if I underpaid or overpaid.

@  Nevermore : (22 July 2019 - 07:02 PM)

Based on my average costs for the year, they will then calculate the estimated monthly costs for the upcoming year.

@  Nevermore : (22 July 2019 - 07:01 PM)

At the end of the year, the power company will send me an annual invoice which shows if I overpaid or underpaid. If I overpaid, the difference may just be deduced from my December bill.

@  Nevermore : (22 July 2019 - 06:59 PM)

I also pay my monthly gas and electricity bills that way.

@  Nevermore : (22 July 2019 - 06:59 PM)

It's funny. Here in Germany, many people still pay cash in stores, restaurants etc. (the staff usually asks "cash or wireless?"), but many regular payments are handled wirelessly and automatically.

@  Nevermore : (22 July 2019 - 06:57 PM)

Around the same time, I get sent a slip from payroll that lists my gross income, all the deductions and the net income, i.e. the final transaction sum.

@  Nevermore : (22 July 2019 - 06:56 PM)

My monthly payment from my employer is wirelessly transferred to my bank account. Taxes, health insurance, unemployment insurance and social security fees are calculated by the payroll department, handled by the employer, and I just get paid the rest after taxes and everything.

@  Paladin : (22 July 2019 - 06:55 PM)

yes. you're assuming US employers would pay fairly & take fairly.

@  Telly : (22 July 2019 - 06:55 PM)

we dont get paid on a monthly basis, if thats what you mean. i myself get paid every 2 weeks. some are every week. and if im telling you something you already know, just ignore me...

@  Nevermore : (22 July 2019 - 06:54 PM)

Which I assume doesn't work that way in the US either?

@  Nevermore : (22 July 2019 - 06:53 PM)

That way you may time the transaction with your monthly payment from your employer.

@  Nevermore : (22 July 2019 - 06:52 PM)

You don't need to give the landlord access to anything. You go to your bank, show the clerk your bank account card, give them the landlord's bank details, tell them the exact amount of the rent and which day of the month the transaction should happen, sign the order, and you're done.

@  Paladin : (22 July 2019 - 06:49 PM)

most Americans wouldn't trust a landlord with access to their bank account.

@  Nevermore : (22 July 2019 - 06:47 PM)

Do people in other countries really still pay their landlords in cash? Here in Germany, it's very common to have the payment as an automated bank transaction on a set day of the month, so if the payment is late, it's either the bank's fault, or there's not enough money on the bank account.

@  Paladin : (22 July 2019 - 05:46 PM)

meanwhile some of us are trying to calculate if they'll have a spare forty bucks at the end of the week for some food...

@  unluckiness : (22 July 2019 - 07:20 AM)

At least I can see where the 600 US bucks is going in this case. The MP line looks more ridiculous by the day.

@  Maximus Ambus : (22 July 2019 - 07:09 AM)

It's ridiculous. I'll stick to Armadacron

@  unluckiness : (22 July 2019 - 06:13 AM)

If anything, shipping is going to make the actual toy's price look affordable.

@  Pennpenn : (22 July 2019 - 02:28 AM)

Its like, $550 ish in US money (so probably about $800 for my Australian self) and is taller than TR Fort Max. He's gonna be a hefty boy.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 July 2019 - 10:05 PM)

Damn, that Unicron looks big. Not gonna be cheap

@  wonko the sane? : (21 July 2019 - 09:09 PM)

"By the way, your landlord called. Something about being late with the rent."

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2019 - 04:09 PM)

"Hi there, I'm Unicron. Your husband ordered me."

@  unluckiness : (21 July 2019 - 09:04 AM)

"Perhaps I misjudged you. Proceed on your way to the couch."

@  Donocropolis : (21 July 2019 - 07:33 AM)

I'm just afraid of what my wife would do to me if it showed up at our door.

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 July 2019 - 01:23 AM)

Giant Robot Satan has that effect on people.

@  Ashley : (21 July 2019 - 12:31 AM)

So, I might not be able to get Hasbro Pulse Unicron because my mother is afraid of it

@  Pennpenn : (20 July 2019 - 09:58 PM)

But that's neither here nor there.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 July 2019 - 06:57 PM)

Six of one, half-dozen of the other.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 July 2019 - 05:13 PM)

Both maybe?

@  Benbot : (20 July 2019 - 04:44 PM)

The official English of STORY is almost on par with the Ono Kensho version. Actually convinced me to give the show another shot (I got one whole more episode in before quitting again).

 

 

Related, they aren't English, but I do know that Harada Hitomi and Suzuki Konomi both did covers of other anime OPs/ED for their Madan no Ou to Vadanis OP/ED singles. Hitomi did First Kiss from Zero no Tsukaima and Suzuki Konomi did a cover of nano's Born to be from Mahou Sensou with nothing but a piano backing her.

 

Other awesome anime covers include:

  • Faylan's anime cover album, which includes a bossa nova version of FLOW's DAYS from Eureka Seven
  • FLOW and Diana Garnet coming together to cover Blue Bird by Ikimonogakari from Naruto on FLOW's BEST ANIME Kiwami album.
  • ClariS' cover album, which included sakura by NIRGILIS, also from Eureka Seven
  • ELISA's cover album ANICHRO, which included a cover of Himitsu Kichi by Takada Kozue, also from Eureka Seven

I think I said earlier if they ever want to do a recut of Eureka Seven where it was down to two cours they'd only need one more cover to make it happen.

 

Utaite tend to do really good covers as well, but I'd really rather see more established artists coming out and doing covers. This hasn't been a big year for them in anison (it's always a big year for covers in general Japanese music), but here's hoping~

 

Oh my gosh how could I do such a big post without mentioning the two most covered songs in all of anison; secret base ~Kimi ga Kureta Mono~ (which can be heard in Kyou no Go Ni and anohana) and disillusion/THIS ILLUSION (all of the Fate/).

 

(Also the other covers thread is in Mayhem so maybe this should be moved there?)

I cut up a clip of Minase and Ogura (the two ViVid Strike leads) performing the Nanoha As opening.

Even as far as live performances go, I can't say the two of them are even as good as Mizuki on her own.



But I guess that's to be expected.

I think if Minase tried to be a good singer she could be at least 75% as good as Nana.

 

Ogura is really not helping.

 

I'm starting to think Nana as a whole is just from another time, but Uchida Yuuma is trying his dardnest to be Miyano Mamoru so maybe we just need to wait for somebody who sets their sights on being "Next Nana".

And I've been enjoying Amalee's catalog of covers quite a bit. Her new version of Kiss of Death was great.

That was pretty nice to listen to, say what you will about the series but the openning theme was rather enchanting to say the least!

NatewantstoBattle's Clattanoia from Overlord season 1

 

I think Overlord season 1 openning is the best, the others are ok but the first one just kind of nailed what the show was about!

 

I'm generally not a major fan of English dubs of Japanese opennings, the ones I tend to hear, feel like they are butchering the song, but not to say I haven't found one that I think equals its original:

I'd love to talk about these in more detail but I don't know if anybody else wants to and I'm mainly interested in covers by Japanese voice actors that I'm already following.



Aoi is my favorite magical girl voice actor and Platina is my favorite magical girl song and it's not a bad match for her voice. It's the kind of thing I never knew how much I wanted.



Minase's cover of the Sailor Moon theme is like, I can't say she's doing anything wrong, I guess. Funny that her voice is a bit deeper than usual for this. Though as far as magical girl things go I'm not sure how she'll ever top Senkin Dur da Bla.

It's hard to remember that the original version of GravityWall isn't all in English.

 

I wish there were more covers by seiyuu I follow already, but male seiyuu don't tend to do covers of each other. I mean, I can't even find covers of Orpheus which feels like it should be a super covered song.

 

I think LiSA has also done a cover of the Sailor Moon OP? Here's a terrible recording of a sample featuring Takamiy from THE ALFEE for some reason. I like this one way better than the original, probably because I have no childhood memories to ruin. Apparently Ziyoou-vachi (aka Queen Bee, performers of the first Tokyo Ghoul:re ED) also did a cover for the album LiSA's version was on.

 

Aoi Eir did a cover of Yumesekai for her single Niji no Oto and I'm pretty sure it's like 5000% better than the original Tomatsu Haruka version.

Don't know if LiSA has but Momoiro Clover Z has a full album of songs from the original show they put out before or around the same time Crystal started.

 

 

Not so much a cover as a remix here. Two-Mix's remixed dance version of Rhythm Emotion. I actually remember a club near Fort Campbell playing this a couple times the few times I hit one.

At some point, Virtual YouTubers became a treasure trove for this. Or maybe it's a garbage dump.

YuNi has done covers for the third Cardcaptor Sakura OP, the first Saint Seiya OP, the Evangelion OP, the first Sword Art Online OP.

There's Evangelion songs by members of the idol group 22/7.

Cocoa Music's done covers of another SAO song, the first Mahouka OP, and the BTOOOM OP, for some reason.

And more than I want to keep track of. Like covers by Mari and Aoi.

I think the VTuber crowd tends to be more into Vocaloid songs though. I kept running across more and more covers of Roki, for example. And there's probably more covers of Sand Planet/Dune out there than anybody needs.
