    Did you ever eat alligator meat?

    I can't really pull anything out of memory. I do remember my uncle eating escargot when I was little and I was all like, "Ewwwww! Snails!" Then my stepdad cooking up huevos de toro, then I was all like, "Ewwwww! Balls!" Though my mom says I ate turtle soup and gator meat once as a baby. Which made me sad, cause I had pet lizards and I like reptiles. ;__;

    Art Red Lines

    [quote name='Boo][size=1']Seriously, what are red lines?[/size][/quote] Lines usually drawn over an unfinished piece by another artist to correct anatomy. Which are usually red.

    Gaming Which game should I purchase?

    Odin Sphere is the best choice if you actually want to get it now. Atlus has a bad habit of RELEASING. SO. FEW. COPIES. of their games. So if you miss your chance you'll end up having a hard time getting it later. Alternatively .hack seems okay if you're into it, and I see Dawn of Mana all the time at game stores, so I'm sure you could get it later.

    Anime Otaku and Geekyness

    I'm not really obsessed with anime. It's just a hobby, and I have tons of others, such a drawing, music, and games. Otakus tend to be obsessive with one thing in particular, and that can pretty much range to anime, games, music, models, or pop idols. Otakus tend to have a bad rap in Japanese media, such as the news, because a number of crimes have been committed by people who watched anime. By definition, yeah these people were Otakus, but not everybody who watches EVA is going to go out and choke the next girl they see. But Otaku is just a stereotype, just like gangsta or emo is in the state. There's no real point on stereotyping yourself, or living up to it. I'm getting of my soapbox, and I probably went way off topic. ;___;

    Anime Welcome to the N.H.K.

    Yeah, Welcome to the NHK is pretty great. I finished it a few months ago and enjoyed it. Coming from someone who kind of lives like Sato, it hits home hard. Though it still has great laughs and drama, depending on the episodes. Some of the characters are a little unlikable, but saying who would kind of spoil it for anybody who hasn't finished. I've been meaning to check out the manga though, which I heard is a little darker.

    Anime Anime in 2007

    [b][url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EReMsfpBeXE]Maiking Break-Through Gurren-Lagann[/url][/b] is something new from Gainax and Hiroyuki Imaishi, who did FLCL and Dead Leaves. It seems like a comedic twist on classic super robo shows. Comes out April 1st, so I guess there might even be RAWs out for it now. [b][url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BrHUrDdMLdk]Bokurano[/url][/b] is another mech anime that interests me, but it's far from the light hearted Gurren. GONZO has brought some great stuff, but some of it doesn't appeal to me. But this defiantly sparks some interest. Airs the 8th of April.

    Anime Akira Live Action Wtf

    I know a few anime that have been made into live action films and have done well. One of them Death Note, with the first movie at #1 for 2 weeks, while the next movie held it for 4 weeks, and become the highest grossing movie of that year in Japan. It just matters if the writers and director can translate the story into a movie well enough. And, as we have seen with Norrington, wasn't able to do that with the The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. Fortunately, he has dropped out of the project. I'm pretty sure America has opened up to comic book movies, and films based on Spiderman, X-Men, and Superman do great at the box offices. So why not a anime/manga based film? Though, we've also seen some big bombs since the comic book movie craze, such as the Hulk, and, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. Also, I've been hearing rumors about DBZ and EVA movies for years. I'll doubt they'll ever get off the ground. The only thing I've actually seen from them is some concept art for EVA.

    Anime An anime idea I had

    Sounds like Welcome to the N.H.K. Except the character regresses to his old ways of a Hikikomori (basically a shut in) and doesn't really get rejected.

    Time machine.

    By playing MGS3, I know that changing the future leds to only one thing. TIME PARADOX! Just think. What if you did give Osama's mother a swift knee to the gut? There still be terrorist and terrorism. Terrorism itself has been around a long time before Bin Ladin. Us Americans only have heard of it since 9/11. Plus, there have been more horrifying events that have cost more lives than 9/11, so why not stop those? Somebody would have sexed a monkey up with or without you. Nothing can change that. And you just can't stop people from killing from each other. You could lower murders and such, but why not just stop all crime? If I went back though, I would probably work on social skills. Then... TIME PARADOX!

    Web Comics

    I used to read a lot, but now I just check up on Penny Arcade, Clone.Manga, MacHall, Ctrl+Alt+Del, and VG Cats. I mainly read PA, MacHall, and CAD just for laughs, while I like most of Dan?s story driven comics on Clone.Manga. Most of them are dark, and somewhat twisted. He also writes some funny comics, but still retain his twisted-ness, with jokes about incest, rape, pedophilia, and lesbian relationships. Another web comic that relies on dark humor is Perry Bible Fellowship. They're basically your newspaper?s funny pages, but much more twisted. Other than that, I find most story driven comics, like MegaToyko, boring. They just can't keep my attention. I also find most sprite comics and such low brow, and most show no talent. Though, 8-Bit Theater out does almost all of them.
  13. [quote name='Cygnus X-1][COLOR=Sienna']Japanese porn is some of the most ****** up stuff you're likely to ever find. EVER. From bukkake (Although I guess that's more Chinese...) [/COLOR][/quote] Bukkake isn't that bad. Compared to lolicon/ shotacon or guro/ vore, Bukkake is just icing on the cake. The pun was indented... >.> But yeah, Japanese porn is messed up, especially because you can't show pubic parts. So that's why hentai is so weird. Japanese men need something to get off on, so that's where aliens/squids/rape monsters come in. Though, sex isn't really such a big deal over there. They haven't have Christianity over there so long, so things we see wrong aren't so bad over their. What's really weird is how bookstores just sell them in the open. Usually you have to go to some sleazy gas station or porn shop in the U.S., but in Japan they're basically sold at your closest bookstore.

    "Shacking up"

    I don't find it wrong, but I do think the couple need to think about the subject. I'm the last person to care about anybody's business, but some people just dive into it too fast. I knew this one girl last year in High School. She was a Senior, and met her boyfriend over the internet. So she always rambled on about how she was soooo in love with him and how they were going to live together. Now, the guy lived up north, while she lived in Georgia. He moved in with her parents and her, and I don't really know much from there because she stopped going to most of her classes. While I can't really judge her, because I hardly knew her, I didn't really see her as mature. She could never make her mind up on the subject, and him coming down her wasn't planned well. All anybody could in a situation like that is to leave it up to the couple. It is their life and relationship, so no one has really has a place in it.

    Gaming Final Fantasy VII Remake

    From what I've read, there is a small chance of a remake happening, seeing how SquareEnix has said next to nothing about it. The tech demo was just showing off what SquareEnix has in store for next gen consoles. Yoshinori Kitase, the original director, has stated he would like Tetsuya Nomura to direct it. But, Nomura, the character designer for VII, said his next project isn?t going to be a remake or prequel to VII. If they added alot of new content and such for the PS2/PS3, I might consider buying it. VII had some of the best graphics of the time though, and had a great story and battle system. So, is there any real reason for SquareEnix to redo it? How much would graphics add to the game anyway? I see no real value of giving FFVII a facelift, even though fans may disagree.
