  1. Such painful news, it's hard to wrap my head around it. Des was a beautiful cornerstone in this community and will always hold a special place in many hearts around the world. He was kind, encouraging, sweet, funny, helpful, wise and a joy to interact with. Truly a wonderful man. Goodbye Desbreko and thank you for letting us be a part of your life <3
  2. This place has changed more than my life has.... D:   Love youse all! <3
  3. I just can't resist playing around in Photoshop. Practice is good for you, ne? ... Which makes me wonder why I haven't gotten any further/better :p Since the second version's "London" has color in it I decided to not make the first one a yummy orange. But it looked tasty, let me tell you.
  4. I can't believe I forgot to add [B][I]Panda[/I][/B]!!! :animeblus :animedepr She's a rocking gal, has adorable pets and great know-how about anime/life in general, so spending time with her would be an all-around swell thang!
  5. [B]Molly, Anamoly and Becky[/B] - because they want to meet me (madness!) and I wanna hook up with those three lovely ladies as well, to shower them with love :3 [B]Azure [/B]- Because I want to apologize to his face for crashing into his net-life with my rambuctious persona. And he's cute so I'd take the opportunity to oogle him, too >.> [B]Shinmaru[/B] - This guy has put up with me since the very first, very random, IM I threw his way. He's so generous with both time and care for others, not to mention he's got a fantastic sense of humour. I'd totally bug him to write more awesome stories, of course :animesmil [B]Sara [/B]- To entertain her as much as possible and just enjoy the brilliant company, while assigning myself as a Scrabble Apprentice and refer to Sara as Master *giggles* [B]Shy [/B]- Literati. Or Scrabble. And Disneyland. All the while [strike]awing over him[/strike] being thankful for getting to hang out with such a cool guy and hopefully make him smile as much as possible =D [B]Liam & Kat [/B]- Two wonderful people with equally wonderful minds. Some of the time would obviously be spent talking about their writing but I'm sure we could find ways to entertain ourselves outside of that (pillow fights! shameless flirting! etc). [B]Alan [/B]- So he can go Dr Phil on me XD I'd also try my hardest to repay his kindness over the years, pumping in as much happiness into his life as possible and making sure he knows what a great guy he is =) [B]James [/B]- Maybe go all out with my sillyness and dress up as Pikachu, speaking only Pika-speak.... :p [B]Sarah/Anatema[/B] - !!! Beauty, truth and love, all wrapped into a sweet package called Sarah. I imagine I could learn a lot from her. Plus, it'd feel nice to hog her from her family to drive home the point of how fabulous she is >:3 [B]John [/B]- Neat-o friend whom I'd love to have deep conversations with.... provided my brain could handle such a thing XP Mostly I'd just want to hang with him, you know, go bowling and learn how to be cool. [B]Annie & Karmi[/B] - I don't get to see these two girls often these days and boy would we have fun getting into mischief together, hehe. They're also two writers whose brains I'd love to explore. Then we'd go dancing in the streets, bare feet _^_ [B]Desbreko [/B]- Because it'd be muchly fun. And educational. 'Cause you can't visit one of the Great Gamers without getting some lessons in how to Play! He'd probably be able to match my sillyness, too, which'd make for some interesting times.... [B]Charles [/B]- To purr at his feet.
  6. [FONT=Tahoma][B]Method #?? - Play [I]Literati. [/I][/B] It's a great way to make contact with other members (new and old) in a fun and relaxed environment, you might learn new words to add to your vocabulary, the games will usually provide brilliant quote material for your sig, and if you're [I]really [/I]lucky you could earn yourself a 24-hour ban from OB! [B]Mentors:[/B] Sara ([B][I]Queen [/I][/B]of Literati), Shy ([B][I]King [/I][/B]of Literati), Kei (Literati [B]Boss[/B]), Shinmaru (Literati [B]Ace[/B]). [B]Bonus Mentor:[/B] Charlie/Heaven's Cloud (Literati [B]Joker[/B]).[/FONT]
  7. [FONT=Tahoma]The Nifty Fifty continues being awesome 8-D A massive round of applause to winners, nominees, voters, judges and [I]especially to Shy[/I] for inventing this Event/being groovy. It was a complete surprise to be nominated, even more to get awarded, and it reminded me there are still a bucketload of Opinionating to be done ..... ~_^[/FONT]
  8. [quote name='Zidargh']See, I was going to do him (I've done it before), but does he class as a super hero?[/quote] [FONT=Tahoma].... He's got mad swordfighting skills, is quite the acrobat, a killer with the ladies (that fits you to a tee, does it not? ~_^) and just imagine the innuendo-laden puns you could extract from having a horse as a side-kick. I'd say that's Super Hero material, right there.[/FONT]
  9. Zorro! It's easy to cut the mask out of some fabric and use the rest for a cape :catgirl:
  10. [FONT=Tahoma]*beams* I was [B]really [/B]hoping this'd get a conclusion but didn't want to say so in the nomination, in case it'd put pressure on you or anything :animeswea Happy, happy about the prospect of seeing the final pieces coming together soon. Be it here or in some other form![/FONT]
  11. [FONT=Tahoma]I have tried to add ones that haven't been mentioned yet instead of seconding obvious choices :< Because if I were to add on already suggested topics/people, I'd bust the 'max 10 nominations' rule! [SIZE=1]Evil limitations ;_;[/SIZE] [B]theOtaku.com's Podcasters - [/B][COLOR=DimGray]My reasoning for this choice, aside from the added top notch awesomeness of the comment box antics that always follow after a show has aired, is that OtakuBoards has a link to MyOtaku which is tied into theOtaku.com where the Podcasts take place. Spiffyness by association and stuff ¬¬;[/COLOR] [B]Any thread in the Anime Lounge that Dagger has either created or graced with her presence:[/B] [COLOR=DimGray]There are many other great posters in that lounge but her name kinda cements the fact that I'll get valid insight on an anime >.>[/COLOR] [URL=http://www.otakuboards.com/showthread.php?t=51508][B]Crimes of Hate[/B][/URL] [I]by Ezekiel [/I]- [COLOR=DimGray]It helped support the need of decent OB fanfics and always felt totally devoid of inside exclusiveness. Terrific writing that spurred an enthusiastic fan base, even among those who despise OB fanfics. [/COLOR] [URL=http://www.otakuboards.com/showthread.php?t=51532][B]We?re Anchormen![/B][/URL] [I]by Annie/Tex[/I] - [COLOR=DimGray]This is a great example on how the other end of the OB fanfic spectrum should look like. Annie has grown stronger in her writing for each year that has passed and when "Bikini Bandits" went on hiatus I was happy to see her indulge us in this project [to cushion the feeling of loss] ^^[/COLOR] [URL=http://www.otakuboards.com/showthread.php?t=52179][B]The Tragedy of Mitch and Alex[/B][/URL] [I]by Charles[/I] - [COLOR=DimGray]The mere [I]mention [/I]of it should suffice :p[/COLOR] [URL=http://www.otakuboards.com/showthread.php?t=55825][B]One Per Minute[/B][/URL] [I]by Liam[/I] - [COLOR=DimGray]Not only is Liam a great boy toy but he's a magnificant writer. After the [horribly traumatically] painful end of the latest installment in the RPG "SYF" installments he understood that, in order for me to survive, a new era would have to dawn. Bringing along all the charm from SYF and stepping it up 10 more notches, together with side-kick & co-creator Sere Tuscumbia, he has more than satisfied me. I thought it was over but this is only the beginning.[/COLOR] [URL=http://www.otakuboards.com/showthread.php?t=55034][B]Charles goes to court[/B][/URL] [I]by Charles[/I] - [COLOR=DimGray]He's put under a scrutinizing microscope constantly and it only magnifies his tremendous appeal.

  12. [FONT=Tahoma]I'd suggest playing less of [URL=http://www.otakuboards.com/showthread.php?t=55117][U]these games[/U][/URL] for starters >.> Other than that, take notes of what's going through your mind at the time of these attacks (if you're able to do so) because that might help you analyze the situations better. Writing down thoughts that come to you [B]while not feeling paranoid[/B] could be good, too, since the major episodes could actually be several things that have accumulated and then ruptures all at once. Ultimately, it's always best to see a professional when it comes to more serious matters of the psyche. Hopefully you can find someone who'll assist you in shedding more light onto your troubles. All the best to you =)[/FONT]
  13. [FONT=Tahoma]Has Tsubasa been licensed? Because if it [I]has [/I]I'll have to suck it up and wait until I can buy it. [strike][B]If not[/B], does anyone know a group that subs the anime? The one I followed dropped it due to lack of something or another.[/strike] Found another group who subs it and so long as it's not licensed I shall continue to download :catgirl: It'll be really nice to be able to see it to the end, instead of being stuck in limbo and grumbling at how it sometimes lag terribly in progress while dying to get to know more of what's going on behind the scenes. Especially since my knowledge on the whole universe is limited to seeing snippets of CCS.[/FONT]
  14. [FONT=Tahoma][B]4th of July, 2001. 4AM ~ 4.05AM[/B] It's kind of ironic how it was one of the most gorgeous mornings of that summer. In perspective it really has nothing on the people who were struck by Katrina, but at least [I]that [/I]storm blew over. Mine is on its 5th year, going strong for a 6th. And it's not like I haven't fought it for all I'm worth, either. Maybe it'll stop chasing after me if I stop trying to move away from it? [/FONT]
  15. [B]Opinionater:[/B] Sakurasuka [B]Subject:[/B] "Life" [B]Question:[/B] In your opinion, is it possible to truly relate to a situation/ matter you?re enlightened on intelligently to the same degree of a person who?s experienced it first-hand? Sakurasuka - [size=1][I]Of course it is. Possibly moreso, since your emotions would not blind you from the issue as it would had you experienced said situation. You won't likely have the exact same reaction/views/experience seeing as you haven't been through said circumstance yourself and every person reacts differently, but I believe it is completely possible to 'put yourself in someone's shoes' and view the issue in a similar, if not the same, light. Now, the question itself is somewhat vague, but I'll try to incorperate examples to help clarify and make sure I know what you're talking about. Let's say you've never been in a serious relationship, yet a friend of yours is having troubles with his/her significant other. Your views on the subject won't be as emotionally charged as your friends, but you should be able to intellegently discuss and give your advice quite easily, by imagining yourself in his/her position. Same with most things. Let's say someone has been affected negatively by the effects of Affirmitive Action. Now, you haven't, but you can empathize and understand exactly where said person is coming from. Same the other way around. Now, there are specific issues that are better experienced firsthand [You can't exactly understand/comprehend things like sex or true love unless you've experienced it], but generally if you put your views aside long enough to see both sides of any situation, you should be able to discuss it intellegently, though you may not have as many good points of discussion than those who have.[/I][/size]
  16. [B]Opinionater:[/B] Katana [B]Subject:[/B] "Humour" [B]Question:[/B] In your opinion, is there something (a situation, a specific occurance) that is never funny [no matter what]? Katana - [size=1][color=royalblue][I]It's difficult to find situations are not funny, no matter what the circumstances. However, I think that one most people become sour on when people joke about it is death. 'Death', in this case, is applied to that of losing a family member or someone close to you, or even just the death of a person you don't know. I personally find it incredibly annoying when people mock the events of 9/11, and of all the people that died. Not just the World Trade Centers, but at the Pentagon and in that field in Pennsylvania. Thousands of people died - how can you laugh about it? What about Steve Irwin? He was an icon, a hero, to so many people. When he died, there were some who found it ironic that he died by a manta ray instead of a crocidile, but then there were others who found it [i]hilariously[/i] ironic that he died by a manta ray instead of a croc. But in that case, what about the "Crikey!" commemorations going around? Is that laughing at him? No. It's a fond rememberance of him, of his life, and of how he lived. Of course you can joke about the death of someone, even someone close to you. I know I've done it...but in a very bitter tone, in hopes of (verbally) stabbing the people who think it funny to lose a loved one. In the end, joking about death just means that somebody is going to be hurt. Even if you didn't 'mean it that way', it's just better to keep your mouth shut, and keep your thoughts to yourself.[/I][/color][/size]
  17. [B]Opinionater:[/B] Japan_86 [B]Subject:[/B] "Life" [B]Question:[/B] What constitutes maturity, in your opinion? Age, ability, attitude, etc? Japan_86 - [COLOR=Navy][I]In all honesty, I do not really know as I am still in the process of maturing, as we all do fom one time to another. From my life experiences, however, I feel that it depends on how much willpower and determination you pocess to do the responsible thing. Willpower and determination are not only needed, but the taking of action as well . Just like with getting a job. You must take the step to get one, and then yet another to make sure you perform well so that you can keep it. That is also the same thing with going to college, etc. Taking the right steps to have a life you are satisfied with or taking thge right steps to get back on the path that you sidetracked that constitutes maturity. Willpower. Desire. Action. The attitude and action that a person takes constitutes maturity.[/I][/COLOR]
  18. [B]Opinionater:[/B] Retribution [B]Subject: [/B]"Music" [B]Question:[/B] In your opinion, are artists and bands doing [good/excellent] covers riding on the success already established by someone else or do they deserve the kudos for putting their creative mark on the songs? Retribution - [size=1][I]I think often artists and bands doing covers are putting their creative mark on songs, but there are also cases when they're doing it to make themselves look good, riding off already established success as you said. The vast majority of the time, though, there are new elements apparent in the cover that were not in the original song and vice versa, which is why I'm inclined to say it's more a creative exercise.[/I][/size]

  22. [B]Opinionater:[/B] DeadSeraphim [B]Subject:[/B] "Nature" [B]Question:[/B] We?re taught that it?s up to the individual to make a difference but where does the majority of responsibility lie when it comes to improving the environment, in your opinion? The Individual Consumer or The Corporate Producer? DeadSeraphim - [COLOR=Indigo][SIZE=1][FONT=Arial][I]A corporation has somewhat of a responsibility to the environment, but it's also largely in the hands of the individual. I mean, the corporation should only have to deal with things that they are directly responsible for affecting, and it's unfair to expect them to extend themselves further than they have to. The individual, however, has as much or as little power as they want (or claim to want) to do things that can improve the environment. They can recycle if they choose to, they can join activist groups to help change living conditions and standards if they care enough, they can choose to not water [i]every[/i] day. So, basically, I think the corporation has a predetermined amount of responsibility, but the individual can take up as much or as little as they want, for better or worse. Ideally, everyone should work towards taking more responsibility, but that's not about to happen. People are lazy, and people suck. Along with death and taxes, they're the only definites in our world.[/I][/FONT][/SIZE][/COLOR]
  23.

  25. [B]Opinionater:[/B] Sandy [B]Subject:[/B] "Language" [B]Question:[/B] In your opinion, do you think [the majority of] words take on a negative or positive spin when the original meaning changes, and do we try too hard to jazz up our vocabulary or is it just a natural step in the development of languages? Sandy - [I]I can only assume the question means things like politic correctness. In that case, in my opinion more and more words are getting negative nuances in them, and using many of the words that once were part of common talk are actually frowned upon nowadays (like ******, jew, ***, etc.). Obviously many of those were once a nickname to a minority that people started to use in an offending sense. After that, new words were included to the language to replace the ones gone bad (like black, gay, etc.), but I have a fear that one day those will come forbidden as well. In my opinion we sometimes go over the top with P.C. issues, thinking that words can hurt others. The truth is that it's not the words that offend, it's the way they are said.[/I]
