Re: Net Neutrality Vote on Dec 13th! (#SaveNetNeutrality)

So still write your MEPs on this one, if you're stuck in the EUSSR. Writing the strangers whom I cannot repay for doing me a favor. Are you 60 or 16? Or rather you are completely clueless about what USSR was? Then do me a favor: when the law in question is enacted, organize a strike against it and ...

Re: Mildly NSFW question about the cast of EoE

I'll bet the Gainax boys enjoyed that day of production. Heh, I did read once an interview with photographer of nude models and he stated explicitly that his job is a hard piece of work. He even gave an example of some novice in the craft who wanted to take care of lighting and he couldn't hold a s...

Mildly NSFW question about the cast of EoE

In the late 90ies, when the Internet was still a novelty accessible mostly at universities, I entered an uni and soon got attracted by free access to, uhm, resources. Of course the lab's regulation was explicitly banning accessing such resources and of course this was exactly what I was doing there ...

Re: Evageeks Watching Sport: 2018 World Cup Edition

Ah, no: the monuments (especially the monuments of National Heroes and Their Victories) are kinda revered here. Sadly, buildings walls are not.

Re: Rewatching the Rebuilds, and my thoughts

Hate to agree with Ray again. Generally, if someone desires a happy ending, s/he can take those characters and build a paradise for them – in his or her own fanfiction. From this point of view, Anno will do his job well, if he delivers an emotional blow to all of us, doing something fairly unjust to...

He is right though.

Naaah. He knows it's his eyes what is hollow, so he projects that onto the whole world to find some reason to throw rocks. And he doesn't care that he's just hit Sakura right in her teeth. He is Q-Gendo looking at the face of Q-Lilith at the foundations of the world and thinking: "Wow, I can be...

That's a hypothesis I could seriously consider.

Also (2) talking about love during a war of apocalyptic proportions makes me ...

Think of it this way: What if Anno, for some reason, chose to include a similarly framed type of shot of Rei III in EOE directly following the sequence where Asuka gets killed by the MP Evas, that show her naked boobs jiggling while walking to wherever she's going with Gendo?
