  1. Another fact concerning emails: Â Sending one is apparently safer than texting..... [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mifJG3ACjVs[/media]
  2. Pet peeves? Â This'll be a long list so here's my top five: 1) Â The sound of babies crying in a public restaurant. 2) Â People who drive 45 mph in the 55 zone, especially when I want to run 65. 3) Â Those idiots who drive through the parking lot with the bass on their stereos turned all the way up. 4) Â The sound of someone talking on a cell phone in a public restaurant. 5) Â Neighbors who let their dogs bark all damn night.
  3. I just started [b]Sacred Blacksmith[/b] this morning and I'll probably be marathoning that today. Â I've also got [b]Black Butler[/b] and [b]Phantom[/b] on the pile to keep me occupied for the time being.
  4. I too shall friend you. Mushi-shi fans have to stick together in this sea of catgirls and giant robots.

  5. [quote name='CaNz' timestamp='1295452455' post='704026'] "you don't like me and I don't like you either." [/quote] And that sounds like every relationship I've ever had.
  6. Oh yeah, I remember these things.  [b]Laser Tag[/b] and [b]Photon[/b] were all the rage back in the 80's.  Laser Tag even had its own Saturday morning cartoon as I recall. The world of [url=http://cdn.bleacherreport.net/images_root/slides/photos/000/555/507/Lazertron_display_image.jpg?1291894839]pro-wrestling[/url] also tried to cash in on the lasermania. With FPS games being so popular I'm guessing there's a market for this somewhere.  Â
  7. This one shouldn't be too hard to guess: [img]http://batrock.net/animeimages/uwm08-01.JPG[/img]
  8. Is that from [b]Basilisk[/b]?
  9. Are you or someone you know the spitting image of a character you've seen in anime or manga? Â Do you feel an emotional connection with one of them because they remind you so much of yourself? Â Or perhaps there is one particular character you wish you could be like. Â Whatever the case may be this is the thread to discuss such things. I've always thought I looked sort of like a slightly pudgier version of [b]Gendo Ikari[/b]. Â I have the same hairstyle and color and I also wear classes. Â I've even considered shaving off my moustache and growing my sideburns down to connect to
  10. So I'm not the only one to notice this? The Gomer is like the OB's hall monitor or something.

  11. I see what you're saying and I agree with all of it. Â I was just trying to segue into another tirade. Â Sorry 'bout that. Â >__> Anyway, going back to a prior post I broached the subject of what the future holds for both the industry and fansubbers. Â I think that's a topic worth discussing as well. Â Where do the rest of you see the anime industry five years from now? Personally I'm seeing a lot of business moving into the online streaming market. Â I just hope anime will still be available for purchase on solid media if it comes to that. Â Fansubbers might also s
  12. [quote name='Katana' timestamp='1294868911' post='703846'] [size="1"][color="royalblue"]Fansubs, on the other hand, aren't like that. The subbers didn't [i]make[/i] the anime (or draw the manga). They didn't write the stories. They didn't do the voice acting. All they're doing is translating it. But their motivation, I believe, is still pretty much the same; they're doing what they're doing out of love for the show and wanting to spread it to the masses. The problem is that they're not promoting people to watch the pr
  13. Halfway through my second week of being laid-off from work for the winter. Â Only another six and a half weeks to go! Â Already going stir-crazy though. Â Halp! O__O
  14. [quote name='Miss Anonymous' timestamp='1294816119' post='703837'] Goodness gracious, I hope this was relevant... uhhhhh so basically, fansubs: good or bad? Ehhh, good for exposure of certain shows and advertising, bad in that the company doesn't do any actual advertising for themselves and in that people simply watch fansubs, never buying anything ever which will result in a reduction or destruction of the American anime market. Or something like that. [/quote] It is indeed relevant and does a lot to sum up the current situation. Â I'm a very possessive gu
