    No, I haven't. But I probably should, I like that ending quite a bit!

    A lot people not only like it, they take it as the be-all and end-all of a review/opinion. Just scroll to the bottom/fast-forward to the end to check the score. Though that's probably more to do with laziness than any sort of philosophical opinion on how one should review.

    I don't think that's unreasonable at all. With the amount of tracks I'm sure you've accumulated, that sounds like it'd actually be not only helpful, but downright necessary.

    Oh yeah, those are brutal too. Just a few weeks ago, I actually did hurt myself under one of my nails. That was pretty fucking painful. Have you seen Ichi the Killer? There's a scene there involving a nipple and a razor blade. Oh god..

    That's what I've heard about Indiana Jones as well, Temple of Doom included, but I wouldn't know just yet. I've also only seen the first Rambo movie, and that was a long time ago, but rewatching that, and possibly the rest if I end up liking them, is also on my long laundry list of things to do. Don't get me wrong about modern movies either, it's not an ironclad rule, just a general trend. I like the Nolan's Batman movies as well, and I'm sure I could pull out a few more examples if I sat down and really thought about it. You are of course right when you say that Deadfall eclipses them all. Nothing more to say about that, really. It just does. It's like "Oh god not the bees!!!" the movie. Every scene is like that.

    Alright, I'll take your word for it. Reddit is alright! About the pictures/text thing, as all good horror directors and writers know, your imagination is the scariest tool of all...

    For every series you watch? You must be a busy bee.

    Sounds like a reasonable scale to me. Like I've said, I'm skeptical about a number's ability to summarize a show anyway, but it can serve as a necessary evil of a shortcut, and be nice for rough categorizations.

    That sounds like a good practice. I haven't used playlists in ages, but it's something that would benefit me as well if I bothered making them. All those folders can get messy, since you're usually in the mood for a certain type of music.

    Yeah, some kinds of injuries just make you shudder instantly, whether they're actually more dangerous or painful than others is rarely the issue. Just something about those scenarios. I watched a movie called "Juice" recently, and a guy put a blade up another guy's nostril while he was threatening him; that was pretty creepy too.

    I've been wanting to check out Indiana Jones for some time, it seems like something I might enjoy. I love 80s action movies, it's in fact the only kind of action movies I do like. A few exceptions here and there, but that's largely where it's at for me when it comes to live-action action movies. The earnest excess and charismatic action stars at their peek have yet to be matched, I think. Of course, I'm more for older movies in general, but I do like a lot of newer stuff too; just nothing from the action genre. It's just not fun to me anymore, the Micheal Bay style CG-fests lack soul. And I don't like the Bourne-style dramatic action either, so there's not much left for me. It's fine for now, though, there's dozens, if not hundreds, of great action movies from the past I've yet to see, so I've no reason to complain just yet. Speaking of GREAT movies, I watched Deadfall again yesterday. I needed something to cheer me up, and Cage's acting did just the trick. I still can't believe that movie got made. Everyone working on it must have been high as a kite.

    The same friends I have who used to hang out on 4chan now hang out on Reddit, so I've decided to stay away from that site. I'm sure I don't want to hear what that story is even about. I've read a few bad ones myself, but you know what they say, a picture says more than a thousand words... and those forums have a lot of pictures.

    The world revolves around the trading of goods and services, which is currently best handled by a currency system (the days of using barter as a effective means are probably never going to come back, but you never know the way the world could turn). That is part of the problem is the economy, for the charities to do anything it costs them like 2 times more then it use to cost them probably so it seems like they can't get as much do anymore. Yeah I understand that, its easier to amass large amounts of money for a good cause then you would think, but as I said before you need so much more now its just so hard to get a truly effective amount.

    Its just that there is certain ideas set about the two different styles, they might both be styles of animation but cartoon's are usually seen as animations aimed at children (weather that is true or not is a different story) and anime is seen as a more broad term. Honestly I like to consider anime a genre more then I consider it Japanese cartoons just because there are works that are influenced heavily from anime and instead of giving them all these different titles I like just calling them all anime. Yeah and that is why youtube and big name companies are getting more and more disliked by the internet community, its like if you use a 10sec clip from a song or movie in a 4 min long mash-up of stuff you have to fight it out just to keep the video up there.

    Lol, well whatever floats their boat I guess xD. Wow, that is like a perfect comment for today, my college gaming society has like a annual event where they just get everyone to play games and the theme of this year was throw-back so we basically spent most of the day playing like Genesis, N64, Dreamcast, etc. Even now looking back and playing games like Star Fox was a blast xD.

    Yeah, as I said the overall soundtrack to the anime was still really good, I just thought the stuff in the Christmas arch was excellent. I don't actually have anything to carry music around with me, I see it as if I am doing something where I can listen to music, I am probably at my computer anyway so its like screw it I am not spending $300 on something I would barely use.

    Yuno is weird, lets just leave it at that xD. I am not a massive fan of VN's either, but I am a massive fan of oreimo and the author wrote the routes for some of the character's in the games so I wanted to see what kind of side stories he basically wrote using the games. The VN's were just as entertaining to me as the actual anime series. The final volume of the LN is coming out next year so everyone is getting ready to see how the series finally ends. She is, they make her so much more Yandere in the games then in the anime or the LN and I find it kind of funny xD.

    Overall, either way its probably one of the best trilogies in recent memory and will be one of the best ever.

    That might have been a good thing for you, I pretty much sent most of my childhood in front of the tv and computer playing video games, minded that might be because I had no friends but that is a different matter entirely. Lucas put a lot of work into the originals and that is probably why they were so good. I can understand how people feel about the new trilogy, it feels like he made it more for the money the for the sake of making something good. Well hey, I said it was not as bad as people say it is, cause I get the general feel that most people seem to think they are some of the worst movies ever made (although I think that might be a lot more letdown then actual hate). I will give you that, the first movie Phantom Menace was weak and honestly the only thing that made it interesting was the silent villain with the double lightsabers xD.

    Oh, yeah. You tend to check out character songs a lot more often than I do. I sort of get those name-puns too, that's cute. I'd pay to see that recording if that was the case.

    Anything that's 8 and over is just amazing in my eyes, that's probably what I'd call the cut-off point for what I consider "favorites." And I do have a lot of stuff with those ratings... just not a lot if you look at it percentage wise. :P I'm sort of harsh with the numbers because I like reserving the higher sports for the best of the best, but I *like* most of the stuff with lower ratings too, I just don't like it *as* much. The dislike cut-off point is probably as far down as 3, anything I've given that is pretty much overwhelmingly negative.

    Aye, of course. I can't concentrate on anything while I'm listening to anything where people are talking either, so if I'm writing I turn that stuff off as well. Otherwise my head just starts spinning. Hey, I didn't figure out jack, you told me how to do it! And it worked, which is awesome. Thanks for the positive feedback, and I hope you didn't mind me hijacking your segment.

    I prefer it when they wear it for a supernatural or silly reason. I'd hate for them to actually have an injured eye from an accident or something. Eye trauma makes me shudder just thinking about it. That's what I meant when I described it a potentially creepy thing to like. I mean I don't really mind it if it's part of the story in an integral way, but I'd hate for people to manufacture injured characters to pander to people like me. That's not really what I want or why I like those patches. As for Ali Project, you're entirely right that it can be hard to tell one song from another. They've got a unique style, but they tend to stick close to it and rarely deviate. I guess the only one I really listen to on any consistent basis is the Rozen Maiden one.

    I had forgotten all about the Indiana Jones review, actually. I don't think I've seen more than one of those movies, but that franchise is a lot more approachable than Star Trek is. I should rewatch that review, and I think I will! Hopefully the new Plinkett will be up soon, since he announced it two weeks ago and said he wad done making it and only needed the editing part, I think.

    That's handy, at least. Don't worry, I didn't think you hung out at /b/ posting pictures of naked children, trolling people's funerals or whatever else they're up to these days.

    I hear yeah, gotta always start somewhere, but the world pretty much revolves around money right now so without money to spare its really hard to have a positive change that we want to have. Even if we give you know like $100 dollars to a charity, $100 split between 1 million people isn't a lot.

    Well I think that is how a lot of American's perceive anime as, just simply cartoon. I feel like it has gotten a little better since I first started watching anime but if talk to anyone who is over the age of like 23-25, they pretty much ask me why I like cartoons so much. Youtube got bought out by google and that was pretty much the end of its free reign. There are certain things that I think the producers have a right to remove like someone just posting there songs, but I am always against when they make people remove stuff like AMV's or Remixes of songs or funny mashups because even though the source material is the same, the product is totally different.

    I don't honestly know anyone who still uses MSN or AIM, i used them during middle school and then after that they pretty much died out. I feel like there was a lot of stuff I did only during middle school, like playing runescape which looking back it was actually a terrible game but at the time I thought it was the bomb xD.


    Yeah, as I said both opening and endings of Toradora! were really well done and fit the anime very well. There was only one actual song used yes, but I was speaking more toward you know the music used in dramatic moments, the background music. I felt like it had the most impact in the arc, minded I am speaking of a anime I haven't watched in awhile but that was how I felt about it the first time through. It might be because the Christmas arch had most of the revelations about the characters though that the music stood out the most to me there.

    I don't honestly remember all that well, I just know that the one from the original world died and the one in the second would got the memories of the one from the first world eventually. Yeah, a Yandere in real life would be something I would never really want to meet, I would probably be afraid for my life. Ahhh right, you have never played the games. In the oreimo games Ayase ends up with Kyosuke in one of the routes (also SPOILER, she falls in love with him in the novels as well) and if you at certain points lie to her, she freaks out on you and stabs you to death o.o ... yeah ... xD I think what they were going for in the anime was honestly a more realistic Yandere if thats even possible. Yeah, she is pretty much one of the prime example of a tsundere, and that isn't really going to change either xD.

    Each movies villain was really different and had different ways to get what they wanted which I really liked. A lot of series are just like "this guy wants to rule the world by killing this guy", villain dies "the new villain wants to do the same thing as the last guy in the SAME EXACT WAY". Yeah, I will agree, the best villain was the Joker, but I can see the best plan being the fear one.

    I was a star wars fan, and I still enjoy the movies and the KOTOR were really good rpg games so I will be interested to see what they do. I am probably not going to follow it super closely like I do with other stuff but I will probably go and see the 7th film either way. The original trilogy was better then the newer trilogy, but I think too many people bash the newer trilogy because I didn't think it was all that terrible.

    Ah, so that's who she played. I thought that might've been it since that scene was the only Nana-related sexual thing I could recall, but to be honest I couldn't remember Momo's name. Hey, I wonder if Takehito Koyasu was in the booth with them while it was going on, or if he recorded his lines separately. :P

    Yeah, what rating you end up giving most often is very different from what each rating means. Since you're the one doing the selecting when it comes to what to watch, it'll naturally skew towards the higher ratings. Otherwise you'd be doing something wrong, picking mostly shows you didn't really like. That's especially true when it comes to anime, since most things that suck just get dropped early on, while when you're watching a movie, you're much more likely to just stick with it to the end regardless due to the relatively short length.

    That's a good way to live. I love music as well, but I don't listen to it nearly as much as you do. I tend to enjoy hearing people talk, so I listen to podcasts, debates and such in addition to music.

    No worries, I don't have unreasonable expectations from this one. She definitely looks a lot like Rikka. I hope it's a new trend. I love those medical eyepatches, every character who has one of those is awesome. Sounds like sort of a creepy turn-on I suppose, but it's purely a visual thing. Ah that's right, Ali Project did that opening... hadn't heard anything from them in a good while. Last one I remember is Code Geass. They're really hit and miss for me. I love their Rozen Maiden opening, but others I'm really meh on. I'll get to that Chuunibyou episode tonight!

    Hahaha yeah, those are brilliant. I have checked out his other stuff as well. It's really good, but unfortunately I can't fully get into the Star Trek stuff. I've never been a fan (well, more accurately I've never been exposed, I've nothing against it per se), so most of that stuff just flies straight over my head. He's still funny in those though, and I actually watch their Half in the Bag review show where he reviews stuff not in his Plinkett character. Nothing beats a Plinkett review though, and there's a new one on the way according to their website. Can't wait for that!

    Guh, 4chan. I seriously can't stand that site, though I'm sure there are corners of it that aren't as bad as the notorious stuff I'm referring to. See, there's another thing I hate. I just can't stop!

    There are too many characters in that series for me to keep track of, I can't keep all of those voice actresses straight in my head. Kanae Itou was Nana, I think? And Hanazawa Kana was Mikan. That was before I really knew of her, and I didn't understand why I found Mikan so cute back then. Mystery solved! Then Takehito Koyasu is in there somewhere as her Lala's guard or something. I love that guy, but speaking of awkward roles, that guy will pop up literally everywhere. And God Bless for him it.

    That's a reasonable system. I'm a bit of a stickler in that regard, since mine differs from most people's, but I gotta stick with what I find most comfortable. Almost any system is fine as long as you're consistent, but the one I can't stand is the "7 is average" rating system. That seems so counter-productive, you're setting up a huge amount of nuance for the bad shows, but hardly any nuance at all for the good ones. I can't say I've never given a 4, but I've never given a "1", yet. Maybe I will when I finally sit down and watch "Angel Cop."

    When I hear a song, I'll usually be able to identify the show it came from, but as for listing the names and whatnot off-hand, that's something I can only do for a certain selection of titles. Usually the stuff I really like, but a lot of random stuff gets stuck in my head too.

    Ah, so it does get a little more creepy as it goes along, that's fantastic. I've enjoyed what I've seen regardless, but horror in anime is a rare treat, so the more I can get of that, the better.

    Combining the topics of Anakin being creepy and Plinkett being awesome, my favorite scene from all of those reviews is the part where he analyzes their romance and highlights all of Anakin's romantic missteps, such as "supports fascism" and "creepy sex look." So many gems in there.

    That's true, I do. I guess the only option left for you is to jump on up on the hater bandwagon. Don't worry, we've got bitter lemonade and cookies fashioned from our broken dreams.

    Mmmmmm, I'm Canadian and I don't pay particularly much mind towards economical or political things. I know the States have had a bit of a depression in recent years but I wasn't sure if that ended yet or not. My lack of a job is mostly just my inabilty to find and keep one.

    Screwing others over is the main appeal of Dokapon Kingdom though. It's a interesting blend of fun and frustration at the same time.~
