Re: Avatar: The Last Airbender (WTF is your avatar/sig from?)

Pic is from the novel Star Maker by Olaf Stapledon. It's pretty much the perfect image to go with my username (notice the number of stars). My memory isn't so clear on this, but I think it influenced my username choice when I created this account. http://i.imgur.com/vxvnhvL.jpg Quote in sig is from ...

Re: NemZ Has Passed Away

Was not expecting something like this when I came around to check on this place. To think my first post in ages would be about someone's passing. I didn't know him well, but he was obviously a highly valued member of this community. He had too much to look forward to at his young age. My condolences...

Re: Comic Books!

But the coloring is still exemplary and innovative. Lynn Varley is a very talented colorist and engaged in the creative process in the style she wanted to. Most people happen to dislike it, but apparently some are looking back and finding something of value. And we're seeing the influence it had on ...

Re: Currently playing 4: Guns of the Patriots

I was addicted to Civilization V for like a week and then suddenly just lost interest. After the first several runs it got pretty repetitive and the exciting feeling of exploration faded away as I got familiar with the vastness of the game. I recently managed to regain the rank I first calibrated to...

Re: Comic Books?

I like Sarah Horrocks' response to that James Harvey post: I was with this until it got to the point of saying that DK2 should have been colored differently. Varley’s colors on that are actually a great way to approach Miller’s current style, but Varley is so far ahead of the game in terms of colori...

Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2015 to now

The animation of the Space Cobra TV series from the 1980's suits the pulpy sci-fi aesthetic much better than the animation of the more recent OVAs and TV series. Really improves the viewing experience. The movie was also pretty cool. And Cobra must have been a strong influence on Space Dandy, both t...

Re: Comic Books?

I got three volumes into The Invisibles a few years ago but it didn't do anything for me. In fact, I had a pretty adverse reaction and it swore me off Morrison for a while. I think Tines even cites it as an example of everything that's wrong with Morrison's writing too, which is an opinion I tend t...

Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2015 to now

Oh, that. Yeah, I knew about all of that, and have no problem with any of it. My main concern is this: When Satoru wakes up from his coma he no longer remembers who the killer is, and his friend Yuuki is still in jail (I think). So I'm wondering how he's going to find the killer, cl...

Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2015 to now

It's really just a personal problem I have, I don't know if most people would share it. It also seems like I've made it out to be a bigger deal than it actually is, so sorry for the "teasing", guys. So, after another Revival, Satoru is able to save Hinazuki but ends up comatose for 15 year...

Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2015 to now

Why? If you don't mind spoilers, then read the manga or plot summaries. Or I can send you a PM if you're not interested in doing that. Pretty sure we won't need fanfics for that. So you DO know what's going to happen? Safe thinking. Expect most things to end in disappointment and you’ll occasionall...

Re: Comic Books?

If they were honest they'd say: "It's really just a marketing campaign." And it might just work on me. I'll prob check out some of the new stuff and stick with the odd gems I find (if there are any). Btw, I've been interested in reading Secret Wars. Is the main mini-series all I should rea...

So like you just jerked off? Kewl. No real problems with that in itself. I guess what's being jerked off to (and by whom) is what's kind of troubling for me.

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, the best representation of life in modern Philly, continues to shine in its 11th season. Really liked that life in the suburbs episode.

Re: Hardcore Henry

The point is that YOU are the protagonist. The FP perspective makes it easier for projection (another way of putting this would be that it enhances the audience's immersion in the cinematic experience, but that's just marketing). The defining characteristics of a wish fulfillment story are: 1) Prota...

Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2015 to now

After spoiling myself on it (and learning that the prod. team announced the TV series would be a faithful adaptation), I'm certain that BokuMachi will end up as a disappointment. :shinji_boohoo: The last two episodes weren't very good. Airi is a boring and contrived (lol choco bar ruines lives) char...

This throws any pretensions about not being a wish fulfillment flick out the window, doesn't it? Looks like it might be a mindless fun ride.

The year is still young, but if it keeps up at this level it will certainly be a contender.
