#66279 Why don't Zambees...

Posted by veL on 12 March 2014 - 05:36 PM

The reason is quite obvious. Once you get zambeewiified, you're considered a part of a big, happy family in which everyone is equal and doesn't concern himself with things as silly as power or money. You don't eat your family. That would be creepy. Instead you want more and more people to become part of your awesome and equal family, and so you begin to spread the love by hugging other still non-zambeewified humanees, shower them with lots of lovely red kisses until they like you so much that they decide to join you in your glorious adventure to make the world a better place.

I, for one, welcome our Zambees overlords philantropists.

Full House and Courage the Cowardly Dog were my favourites back in the day, especially the latter. It gave me a legitimate reason to fake all kinds of sicknesses during my school years for that little dose of wicked, imaginative black comedy.

#65305 Movies you hate yourself for loving

As a guy .. Pitch Perfect. Definitely my guilty pleasure. Don't get me wrong, the movie was superb in every way: Music, Cast, Comedy, Silly but believable plot .. But being a person who wants to share something he likes with others, I did not enjoy trying to convince my friends to watch it. Especially because of the poster and acapella-based plot. Seriously though, go watch it.

Easy choice, Chewbacca. You can just roar and choke everyone and get away with it.

#63457 Are Mummy's and Vampires Zombies?

Posted by veL on 29 January 2014 - 02:42 PM

It depends what we'll set as the defining factor here, if it's the same as the current pop culture then neither are, currently zombie is believed to be
1. Reanimated dead
2. Craving living flesh for survival
3. Contagiously spreading.
4. Shutdown brain with only select instincts.

In this case, vampires are a straight no, they're not dead, they crave for blood not flesh and they aren't brainless.

Mummy on the other hand, is dead, but its whole existence is usually strictly connected to curses, revenge and they're often not braindead. So I'd say they aren't zombies either.

When we ignore pop culture and focus more on world's history and real-life examples, Zombies are practically witchcraft and/or results of medicine practiced in the past of Africa and Haiti, that supposedly caused the dead to come back to life as simple creatures who did your bidding (eg. field labour) without any particular need to taste your brain. In that aspect I guess we could level Mummies with Zombies, as both are connected to witchcraft, curses and oinments used to preserve the bodies.

So I just have one question: what sparked Anime World War 1? :P

Oh I did, that one day when I said I hate NGE for being a senseless piece of crap. Before I knew it there was US and Japanese army at my front door. More information is confidential.

Not to cause Anime World War 2, but neither SAO nor Accel World could be considered a 'very good' Anime, unless there are atleast 3-4 levels of anime quality above it, then I guess it could be called something like that.

Also how can people watch dubbing over subtitles for any reason. I mean even if it IS a very good dubbing, it still can't translate all the plays on words and just doesn't feel the same. Unless of course it's 'American anime' that was made like that from the beginning then I guess you aren't missing anything (Good ol' Avatar the Last Airbender)

Sorry about being whiny, it's just my little rebellion against all these hypetrains and stereotypes that make little sense to me. Anyway, I think what you're looking for is an action-packed shounen, preferrably with RPG/gaming roots. Frankly there isn't any new Anime that would fit this description and be very good though. Did you try Kill la Kill? Or maybe sports Anime? Back in the day I was super anti because of all the IRL hate for sports, but in Anime it's pretty damn exciting. Kuroko no Basket is a popular choice right now, but I still find Hajime no Ippo the best currently-airing shounen, easily. There's also Hunter x Hunter but it's not exactly new, but still on-going and not sports-based.

Ahhh, this feels like home.

I assume only book spoilers need to be tagged?

Did you guys see the 4 seconds promo of the new season? Fastest nerdgasm of my life.

#61360 And now my watch begins ...

Posted by veL on 05 January 2014 - 08:09 PM

Why hello there.

I'm ser Whosit of Whocares, first of his name, lord of Nothing Really, the rightful heir to Hopefully Something, Protector of his Virginity and Watcher on the Forum's Wall.

I'm from Poland, and our 'nerd' communities are pretty scarce, hence I searched for a place where I could discuss nerdistic topics without people throwing their kitchen's equipment my way. (You don't do that here .. Right? Making sure, my +10 agility socks are in the laundry)

As some of you might've realised by now, I'm a pretty big fan of A Song of Ice and Fire, but also the TV Show (Game of Thrones), as many other TV Shows, Anime, Fantasy and Wherever People Die A Lot-genre movies.

Oh, and my cat just died. I'm pretty torn up inside right now and thought posting/reading things here would bring me closer to some sort of equilibrium. So don't yell at me, I might cry. Wait, too late.

Nice to meet you all, hoping I'll blend in.
