    Adblocker doesn't even block stuff on Blip.tv for you? Have you configured it to do that manually?

    That's wonderful. I'll never reach that stage, I just don't have the motivation and discipline to start learning it properly I think.

    I don't know if that was the problem. I don't think anyone mistook it for anything but a comedy, I mean, how could you? I think it had more to do with expectations. People were expecting Kyoto to make, well, a Kyoto-show. I.e. plenty of moe, with some comedy and drama on the side. Instead they got a wacky comedy with an art-style not optimized for moe-fication and with nothing but skit-based antics. I can relate to not liking the humor, as I didn't care for all of it myself, but I don't think the show was judged fairly; i.e. on its own merits.

    Ah, alright. I know you love the show, s'why I asked. I think it's a great show too, but I can't match your enthusiasm. I will probably see those movies eventually though, as the show more than warranted a second look, even if the movies didn't add any new scenes at all, I'd probably still watch them just for a revisit. It's been, goodness, 3 years apparently, since I saw it. When it comes to Ranka, a lot of people found her annoying and useless as a character. That's never a charge I've really levied against anyone, because I don't view characters as pieces on a chessboard with a strategy to fulfill; i.e. I don't think they need a raison d'etre. I just want them to be interesting or compelling, and I thought Ranka fulfilled at least the latter, if not both.

    No pain, no gain. Which must mean, if we maximize the pain, something wonderful will happen.

    It might be a North American thing when it comes to Youtube, as I've heard complaints, but I've never seen a single ad there. (Even without Adblocker.) Advertisers probably mostly cater to Americans, and Canada gets included. After all, most of the ads I did see on blip.tv etc were for things that do not exist here anyway, so they're completely pointless.

    Class can do wonderful things when you've got a basic vocabulary from anime-watching, I'm sure. Never tried it myself. Taught myself to read kana, but anything kanji-related I'm completely blank on.

    Nichijou is a real hit or miss show for me. It can have sketches that I absolutely enjoy, and some that just bore me to tears, all in the same episode. Overall though, I think it's a very good show, the bad is heavily outweighed by the good, and it gets a lot more flack than I think it deserves. Guess it wasn't moe enough for certain crowds. I love the Hakase segments particularly, wish the entire show was about her personally.

    Oh, cool. I've been considering watching those movies. Would you recommend them (if you've seen them), how are when compared to the series? Ranka is another subject of insane amounts of hate, boy I remember when the series aired, every week. :P

    I like the way you think!

    Ads suck. I understand that people add them if they want video-making to be their main source of income, but I just use Adblocker to remove all that stuff, I can't deal with it. Pretty insane how much money James has received in donations for his movie, really shows how much people appreciate what he does.

    Ah, you can understand, even read, some Japanese? Neat. I hardly know anything at all.

    Indeed, but an educated person is more likely to have a more open mindset. It's no guarantee, there are a lot of factors, but the probability rises.

    I hope so, sounds like he deserves some spotlight. A lot of people hated Nichijou, so I hope that doesn't backfire on him though.

    Luckily, there are no diseases that transmit through blood. Right? Right!?!?!?

    Let's revive the decade! You know, minus the Cold War and everything.

    Yes, fame does kill most people. It's like they turn into a completely different person, I've followed people and seen it happen to the least likely of suspects. That's another reason I respect James Rofle a lot. I feel like he's never given into the drama and popularity. He's always very humble and nice, and doesn't really bring anything but his talent into his videos. One of the few people I feel has tackled fame well.

    As long as you can navigate it, I guess that's alright. Won't you have trouble understanding what's going on story-wise, though?

    Some people truly think like that, but they're heavily outnumbered by bigots of various stripes, especially if you consider the global picture, and not just the privileged West. Education is probably key, though not even that is a panacea.

    Hah, that's awesome, I had no idea. I've been listening to the second opening to Nichijou a lot on my phone, to believe it was only his voice in that song. Impressive and broad talent, that's for sure!

    It tastes just like chicken. Have a bite. *grins*

    There you go, now we're both wiser!

    People do sell out. It's a cliche, but it's true. Often-times they just lose sight of what made them great to begin with. I like things that are down to earth and basic, I hate it when everything gets overblown and turns to drama and ego-masturbation. That clip lol. I have seen a few of iRate gamer's videos, and they are EMBARRASSINGLY BAD. I'm embarrassed for him when I watch his videos, and I literally have trouble watching it because I feel so awkward. He has no wit, no charisma and no acting talent. How did he become popular? The funniest thing I ever saw was his "ghost hunting" show, where he and some other clowns go and investigate supposedly supernatural occurrences... you don't even want to know how lame it is.

    Damn, that's a lot of money, but hey, the girls are worth it, I suppose. Are those games released in English, or do you actually buy Japanese ones?

    It's good when diversity is valued, unfortunately it's usually the opposite, that small differences drive people apart.

    You can say that again, I'm not leaving my bed. Those guys are just crazy... didn't they make the Nichijou openings?

    It's a dirty job, but someone's got to do it. At least according to my highly dubious philosophy.

    Yeah, there's those, I think some of them are a bit later than the 70s though, at least the back to the future movies. From the 70s that I've seen there's also the Exorcist, some of the Dirty Harry movies, Jaws and Jesus Christ Superstar. And of course, A Clockwork Orange! Also the Godfather. Guess there is a bit, after all.

    Man, I watched it again too! Love old-school Spoony... why did everything use to be so much better?? >-<

    It's not an easy scale to balance when you're interested in so many different things. "Luckily", I'm rarely tempted to buy games anymore, but there's still a lot of temptations (and necessities) that keeps my collection small too.

    There are a lot of cool ones, that's for sure. And some silly ones.

    Oh you! Looks like a nice area you're living in too, again, makes me pine a little bit to get out of the city. By the way, you know how I said it was cold yesterday? That was nothing, today is *freezing.* >-<

    Those are the tastiest, silly.

    Mostly the same here. I'm familiar with a little bit of 30s and 20s too, due to watching some classic horror movies. Late 70s I've seen a little bit, but not much.

    Yeah, I've seen the game in action, a friend of mine was very taken by it. I was not impressed. The Bayou Billy one is hilarious too, that's where I first heard of the game. I should check that one out again, I'm smiling just thinking about it.

    I know what you mean, I can't afford much either. That's why I usually buy anime movies when I can, they're pretty cheap and add some bulk to my collection. Still, the selection isn't great for those, but what they do have tends to be stuff that's popular enough to be pretty good.

    Yeah, I just meant the English language in general this time, but accent and which area you're from can make it even more distinct. Again, I love Scottish, it's great for both badassery and humor.

    Gorgeous pictures, I'm getting a little envious now. The last picture in particular looks like something you'd see on a post card, you snapped a good one there.

    I'm gonna have to get some sleep now, talk to you later, and good night.

    Is there any other kind?

    Don't worry, the 70s is one of the decades I've seen the fewest movies from. Plus I'm not really a huge sci-fi guy to begin with.

    I thought it looked bad as well, so I didn't even bother with it. I've heard about that auto-battle thing... sounds like the laziest thing ever. Is that the new wave, games that play themselves? :P Spoony haaaaaaaaates FFX though, he thinks it's one of the worst things ever. To me, it's a magical adventure with one of the best settings, plot and combat ever. Not that this makes me dislike him, fine with me that someone disagrees. Besides, I love his early stuff, like the Phantasmagoria let's play... that's one of the best reviews of anything on the web ever.

    Those first few seconds can make your head hurt, I've experienced that a couple of times myself. Do you generally buy a lot of anime? My collection is pretty humble at this point, but I treasure it still.

    Yeah, there are certain things that just don't work in certain languages, and certain things that *only* work in certain languages. Most bilingual people can attest to that, I'm sure. There's just so much that sounds more bad-ass in English for instance, but when I try to translate it into Norwegian, it just sounds weird. I narrate my roleplaying sessions in English for that very reason.

    I won't judge you, I just ate a pizza with bacon, beef and ham. I'm an accomplice to murder.

    Yes, I discovered your weakness; cheesy 70s sci-fi movies!

    He seemed a little easier from the little chance I got to brawl with him. I hate that little guy who's jumping around and firing at me, crazy little hunchback.

    Final Fantasy VIII did seem pretty bad. I've only played a little bit off it, it just didn't appeal to me. It was completely different from VII, and actually managed to look a lot worse, despite being a sequel. I've seen Spoony's review, though he hates FFX as well, so I don't know if I can trust his opinion entirely. :P

    As for dubs, I never really listen to them. Are they still that bad? There are only two shows I've seen that I prefer dubbed. One is Golden Boy, which is just *hilarious* in English, the lead goes nuts with the role, it's perfect. While in Japanese it's a bit plain. The other is Afro Samurai, which has Samuel Jackson.... nuff said. Other than that, I always want to watch the original if at all possible, whatever I'm watching. I don't want an English dub of Der Untergang or Clannad, and I don't want a Japanese dub of The Simpsons.

    Plus, English just can't do moe justice. And there's simply no denying that.

    Murder always makes me hungry too. Not implying that you killed the pig on purpose or anything. Just saying.

    Oh, tea. =))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

    I imagine that like Soylent Green, pickles are actually made of people.

    I don't know man... this level is 10 times more annoying, and it's so damn long, I'm always short on everything when I make it to the end, and don't have much time to figure the guy out. I still don't quite know how I beat the mummies, I just got into a groove. I'll try again tomorrow, though.

    Oh come on, it's not that bad! Nothing is that bad.... *shivers down spine*
