Re: Nature of sync tests

Spiritual harmonics. Pilots have to stop thinking. Higher stress levels screw around with their synchronization. The soul trapped inside Eva dominates in typical Anno-Jungian fashion. Throw in your Japanese Zen crap and it starts to make sense. The pilots have to concentrate on no-mind, but they're ...

Joy Division to me is more disturbing than sad, it's a sort of cold, arm's-length despair. It's haunting, but it doesn't gut-punch me. It's haunting in the way that something like a David Lynch movie is. Pretty accurate assessment. Cold, debilitating ice of sound that sinks into...

People who dismiss Elfen Lied because of violence and nudity are the same sort of people who would dismiss ME!ME!ME! for being vapid fanservice. It's far easier to dismiss because of its sloppy directing and sappy, hamfisted story than its because of the violence or nudity. Violence and nudity ...

I thought Elfen Lied was more or less universally despised by everyone that isn't an edgelord teenager.

Watched the third Hobbit movie last night, what was it called... uh, The Hobbit 3: The Desolation of Smaug 2: An Unexpected Battle, Parts 1 and 2: The Conclusion; or, More of the Same . It was exactly that. I have to wonder if studio pressures were what pushed the superfluous, half-assed fanfiction ...

Blue Monday - sooner or later I'll get around to finishing Drive. Might just have to order the BD or something. I never expected Refn to be the one who dragged me back into filmfaggotry. i kept hearing for a bit that Refn was going to direct a remake of maniac cop. and apparently highly respect...

Awesome, glad to see you liked OGF, Merri. As the anti- Drive , it's probably my favourite Refn, and I recently bought the Blu-ray as well. The visuals and Cliff Martinez' soundtrack ('Bride of Chang' and 'Sister, Pt. 1' in particular) are simply awe-inducing. I saw ...

Only God Forgives - actually saw this a couple days ago, but it's still in my mind today so might as well post it. Short version: bloody brilliant film, one of the best I've seen in a while. A perfectly paced meditation on consequence, the visually rich film plays out more like a dream than...

Do we have any gigging musicians here? In any style of music? ^_^ I don't gig, but I do record a fair amount. Not sure how to describe it, other than a pseudo-ambient composite of the arsenal of instruments I have on hand and pretend I know how to play. Most of it sucks. I'm in talks with a...

I didn't care for Ellis' DV8 , but I know he's capable of doing much better, as evidenced by his recent stint on Moon Knight . It felt like he was intentionally phoning it in here. I'm expecting Planetary , Authority and Transmetropolitan to be much better. Ellis is pretty hit or mi...

Ant Colony by Michael DeForge was somewhat shit hipster drug music comic book filled to brim with nicely garish color palate, amusingly homosexual ant protagonists, the surrealistic comforts of the absurd, and a vaguely disreputable end note that was not only lacking but seemed to reach for the amb...

I had to get used to the kitties but Spring and Chaos was beautiful. What an affective way of telling Kenji Miyazawa's story and goals. I will finish reading his stories in translation soon. Spring and Chaos is a beautiful film. The montages in particular made quite an impression on me when I f...

OK. 1) Nuking OT dissolves at least +50% of current EGF usership as far as I can tell. As Trajan noted earlier, EGF's OT section has consistently proven itself to be one of the prime staying-factors for users. Evangelion has been discussed to point that there really isn't much left to sa...

^TBH I've always gotten the impression that it isn't the topics so much as what's posted and how the discourse reads that probably necessitates the drastic measures.
