Re: Official Happy Birthday Thread

CoL, I've said it before but just wanted to reiterate that I appreciate your Quixotic effort here, you're the best human on this site. Your daily spreading of birthday-related joy has evoked an elegiac and sentimental response in me that I struggle to conceive in the English language, a sort of wisp...

Re: Convention General Thread

Encountered one of you here cosplaying as either Mari or Shinji at NYCC, was roaming around drunk on rusty nails in a Char Aznable (Zeta, saw you admiring the sleevless turtleneck) cosplay after the Hiro Mashima event on Friday, so I imagine my breath must have smelled of Drambuie and Altoids. I vag...

Re: FML general thread [8]

Wait, what? We know exactly what bullets Oswald used down to the lot number of the 6.5 Carcano he fired. No way in hell he put a different cartridge in his gun. Besides, he was a marine and a qualified sharpshooter. Any claim that Oswald was inexperienced with firearms or couldn't shoot is a flat o...

Re: FML general thread [8]

Given that this is physically impossible, whoever told you it should probably not be taken seriously. It's not like you can't chamber-ream it or re-barrel, if he did I'd imagine it was likely in some Mexico chop-shop because apparently he spent a week there in between ordering the gun in its origin...

Re: FML general thread [8]

And I have to ask: if you (the person reading) actually do believe in some of these theories, why do you believe in them? I want to know because some of this shit sounds so ludicrous and cynical to me that I honestly cannot comprehend the sort of person who does believe in them. Like, if the Earth ...

Re: ITT: What are you working on right now?

Successfully argued my thesis last week. I've got to teach an actual course that utilizes it (need it for the rhetoric component of the college's postgrad program) -- but it's lit homies. It'll be published in the college's quarterly journal this September and it's a refresher on the good old Godard...

Re: EGF's House of Lonely Hearts

It was never explicitly said it was a date and I hesitate to call it one in case she might not want to call it such, despite the fact that I really really want it to be. I was very awkward in asking and I compliment her fairly often. She's definitely a smart cookie, but still I'm left curious think...

Re: NemZ Has Passed Away

As a person who probably had one of the more tumultuous relationships with the man, this really broke me up. Wish nothing but the best for his family, and his legacy here will always be as a titan of discussion in the glory days of this site. He's done more for the understanding of the series and th...

Re: EGF's House of Lonely Hearts

Well still no response. I don't think that I'd be a pest by messaging again, but on the same token, if she wanted to respond I'm sure she would do so. I wouldn't be so quick to assume. I was juggling 3 partners last year and it was a bit of a hassle to keep up with all the messages while teaching/w...

Re: EGF's House of Lonely Hearts

In a (Probably useless) update, I am possibly meeting up with the girl who I met in the summer for Presidents Day weekend. I keep thinking, is this the right moment to ask if she wants to go out with me, or should I wait until we see each other for a third time? My mind is going with the former, bu...

Re: Which anime of today will be considered future classics?

That's true, but even so if the word of the writer isn't reliable there isn't much to be said on the matter. Anything he says is dismissed, and no one else is in a position to know better, so the discussion winds up going nowhere fast. Personally I think it'd be a lot more interesting to ask why he...

Re: FML general thread [8]

Heaven forfend that dub-only peasants should share an interest with sub-only elites! </sarcasm> I'm reminded of the passage in the Inferno where Virgil tells Dante that "the 20th circle is for dub peasants" where they are pelted with Squig's opinions as they try in vain to enjoy the lates...

Re: FML general thread [8]

I helped set up a college anime club, only for it to immediately become populated by mumbling turbo-autists and dub-only peasants. On top of that, the member of staff facilitating the thing has basically ruled that we're only watching dubbed stuff now in the name of "accessibility". And g...

Re: Which anime of today will be considered future classics?

WRT Rebellion: Setting aside that the entire movie would be pointless if not for the ending that it was clearly designed around to begin with, you're spreading a meme that flat-out isn't true. There was no forced change or corporate interference. Urobuchi wasn't sure how to develop things past the ...
