Dream, you're combining a holier-than-thou attitude here with a position that's one step shy of Nazi apologism. Probably best to quit digging.

I fail to see any hint of anything like sympathy for the Nazis in what Dream said, unless saying something that a subtle Nazi apologist might say now automatically implicates one as a subtle Nazi apologist.

Those Nazi uniforms, with the exception of Misato's, look absolutely terrible. And that's just because she's being fetishized viâ the uniform in a way quite counter to the Nazi sensibilities, which doesn't speak well of the artist's Naziism.

Actually that seems to be sort of the thing that Dream was talking about, though at the other side. The Nazis, not considered as an actual civilization, but as a myth. For the mainstream, this is as the Titans or Giants or worse as a joke; whereas neo-Naziism is basically a cargo cult. I saw something on tumblr about that.

Anyway, I meant Japanese WWII uniforms. But really, that's too specific. Any good-looking militaristic uniform would do. The bloody Utena duelists' outfits would do. In fact, those might be even better.

That annoys the fuck out of me too, but I didn't see any of it here.

I think you misread the critical line -- "and thus it's just a matter of time before the same mistakes repeat again in another skin". To put it in other words, I read Dream as saying "I don't think most people would be able to say why the Nazis were bad outside of generalities or hyperbole, and thus the risk rises that something like the Nazis could happen again".

Why do those costumes actually suit them very well (or look good on them if you will)? Is it just me? It's also hilarious. I never thought something like that was done in a doujinshi. But is there anything like that for any of the other WW2 countries? I can just picture a cigar chomping, trench gun wielding GI Asuka with a huge, unshaved stubble.

Well, ISIS-chan is already a thing, so..................
Among the people who use the Internet, many are obtuse. Because they are locked in their rooms, they hang on to that vision which is spreading across the world. But this does not go beyond mere ‘data’. Data without analysis [thinking], which makes you think that you know everything. This complacency is nothing but a trap. Moreover, the sense of values that counters this notion is paralyzed by it.

And so we arrive at demagogy. - Hideaki Anno, 1996

Hey guys! I was wondering if someone had a high quality version of the Yomiuri Giants Asuka promo pic.
Thanks in advance.

fan art of Rei with wings needed

Postby Angel » Thu Sep 10, 2015 2:51 pm

I have recently joined the Glorious Linux Master Race, and now I can actually set my wallpaper to change at arbitrary intervals. I've decided that I want most of my wallpapers to be fan art of Rei with wings. I used to have a huge collection of fan art, until the hard drive that it was on died. However, I'm willing to bet that there's someone else here with a huge collection of fan art, and I'm hoping they'll be willing to share whatever images they have of Rei with wings.

Thank you :)

EDIT: I'm willing to compromise on the wings if the art is sufficiently awesome in other ways.

You mean like I can in Windows? Marvellous! These are my desktops.

Most of my pix with wings are Kaworu, so I can only offer a handful of Rei with Wings.

I have literally never seen or heard of this being a thing in windows, and my family is extremely computer-literate. Maybe they never told me because they were afraid I'd become addicted to Wallpaper Roulette :)

It's built-in in Windows 8, but I don't know when it was added.

First of all, I'd like to thank pwhodges for pointing me toward Jon Lin's wallpaper collection. I've already been able to score a few solid hits. However, I have two minor quibbles. The first is that, in most of the images with wings, the character with wings is not identifiable as Rei. The second is that I'm not necessarily looking for actual full-size wallpapers, just some pieces of fan art that I can plug into the randomizer for some fun.

Anyway, time to keep digging.

EDIT: done digging. maybe sending me to a fan art gallery would be the next logical step?

Does anyone know where I can find the images in this post? The links are all dead and thus I don't know what scenes the poster is citing.

As can I with my 2011 iMac. Heck, I think I could do that as far back as 2009. In fact, it's to the point where the only advantages of different OS or smartphones is preference of gimmicky features. (Oh, look! Android phones with range-less, wireless charging. How... fascinatingly inconvenient to not even have the 3 ft range of a charge cable.) The processing power and access to certain tools are all pretty much the same across the board.
