February 11, 2017 in what did i watch this week

Banpei Weekly [episode 6]
As you may have noticed, the format got renamed. Last time I asked if anyone could come up with a good name for the newer format, as it started to get bigger than just what did I watch this week. AE86 Standard came up with the Banpei Weekly and I liked it a lot! Thanks again, AE86 Standard!

I also added a little down on the street in here. I spotted a Toyota GT86 (aka 86 / FR-S) in the parkinglot at Fosdem. I didn’t want to disturb the owner (he was calling someone on his phone) and I returned later to take a few pics and videos.
