Shootin' the Breeze / Afro Samurai Trailer
« on: July 26, 2006, 08:33:31 PM »

Cool looking trailer. May not be work safe, lots of blood and some language at the end. Can't wait to see the show. I had to stream it because of problems with the downloads not opening in QT or WMP. Not sure if it was on my side or their's.

Shootin' the Breeze / Scientist Discover "Godzilla" Fossil
« on: November 11, 2005, 02:52:51 AM »
From: CNN with a picture


(CNN) -- Scientists say they have discovered the intact fossilized skull of a marine crocodile with a dinosaur-like head and a fish-like tail that likely terrorized the Pacific Ocean 135 million years ago.

The head of the expedition that found the specimen has dubbed it "Godzilla."

The fossil was discovered in 1996 in the Patagonia region of Argentina and researchers spent years uncovering the skull and analyzing their find. They published their work Thursday in the journal Science.

Zulma Gasparini, paleozoology professor at Argentina's Universidad Nacional de La Plata, said the fierce-looking animal probably terrorized creatures in the Pacific Ocean in the late Jurassic era, just as the film monster Godzilla frightened the people of Tokyo in the movies.

"We are calling him the 'chico malo' -- 'bad boy'" of the ocean, she said.

Report co-author Diego Pol of Ohio State University said "Godzilla," whose scientific name is Dakosaurus andiniensis, had a short, high snout and large, jagged teeth for biting and cutting prey.

He said this was surprising, because other marine crocodiles have long, thin snouts and many smaller teeth.

But Pol said "Godzilla" was a top ocean predator and preyed much like the dinosaurs of its era.

He said it was probably about 12 feet long and had four paddle-like limbs instead of the legs of today's crocodiles.

The National Geographic Society and Argentina's National Council of Scientific and Technical Research funded the research.

Coolest new fossil find in a while, imo. Fans of the big G will probably love this.

Shootin' the Breeze / Justice comes after Justice Souter
« on: July 16, 2005, 05:16:43 PM »

For Release Monday, June 27 to New Hampshire media
For Release Tuesday, June 28 to all other media

Weare, New Hampshire (PRWEB) Could a hotel be built on the land owned by Supreme Court Justice David H. Souter? A new ruling by the Supreme Court which was supported by Justice Souter himself itself might allow it. A private developer is seeking to use this very law to build a hotel on Souter's land.

Justice Souter's vote in the "Kelo vs. City of New London" decision allows city governments to take land from one private owner and give it to another if the government will generate greater tax revenue or other economic benefits when the land is developed by the new owner.

On Monday June 27, Logan Darrow Clements, faxed a request to Chip Meany the code enforcement officer of the Towne of Weare, New Hampshire seeking to start the application process to build a hotel on 34 Cilley Hill Road. This is the present location of Mr. Souter's home.

Clements, CEO of Freestar Media, LLC, points out that the City of Weare will certainly gain greater tax revenue and economic benefits with a hotel on 34 Cilley Hill Road than allowing Mr. Souter to own the land.

The proposed development, called "The Lost Liberty Hotel" will feature the "Just Desserts Café" and include a museum, open to the public, featuring a permanent exhibit on the loss of freedom in America. Instead of a Gideon's Bible each guest will receive a free copy of Ayn Rand's novel "Atlas Shrugged."

Clements indicated that the hotel must be built on this particular piece of land because it is a unique site being the home of someone largely responsible for destroying property rights for all Americans.

"This is not a prank" said Clements, "The Towne of Weare has five people on the Board of Selectmen. If three of them vote to use the power of eminent domain to take this land from Mr. Souter we can begin our hotel development."

Clements' plan is to raise investment capital from wealthy pro-liberty investors and draw up architectural plans. These plans would then be used to raise investment capital for the project. Clements hopes that regular customers of the hotel might include supporters of the Institute For Justice and participants in the Free State Project among others.

Berserk Miscellaneous / Looking for a couple particular images...
« on: April 10, 2005, 12:06:17 AM »
I've been going through all my images trying to find the shot of Puck doing the Master Yoda imitation. Also I've been looking for some of the colored images of Skull Knight. I seem to remember one of him from the collected volumes but I can't find it. Any help would be much appreciated, whether its the actual images or episode and page #. Thanks.

Creation Station / My first color attempt
« on: April 09, 2005, 08:12:10 PM »
I used Lith's tutorial to a degree. Unfortuantely I didn't have the rest of the panel, just this part that I had cropped out a while back. Because I wasn't sure what else was going on in the scene I didn't try to color in the rest.

The original:

What I colored:

A generic background to make it kinda look like Puck is at sea on a ship with a sunset.

Speculation Nation / Multiple Stages of Apostles?
« on: April 01, 2005, 06:41:51 AM »
I was discussing Berserk with another person and he posed the question/theory of "Is it possible that there are multiple stages of Apostles?" For example, the God Hand offered the Snail Count more power if he sacrificed his daughter, and still had his Beherit. The Snake Tyrant also had his Beherit and Wyld tried to call the God Hand by using Griffith's Beherit. Then there are those Apostles like Zodd, Gurunberd, Locus, and such who seem to be greatly more powerful than the average Apostle. Could it be that some Apostles did not sacrifice everything during their initial use of the Beherit and were able to sacrifice something else later for even greater power? Could part of this superior level/stage be that the Apostles become more deeply connected to the Vortex instead of the Interstice and Physical realms, which attributes to this power?

Shootin' the Breeze / Had a good night
« on: March 07, 2005, 08:01:56 AM »
Went to see "Be Cool" and "The Jacket" tonight. "Be Cool" was pretty good and the Rock was great. "The Jacket" was ok, started really good but it got rather predictable unfortuantely. Most interesting those was what happened while we were playing in the arcade in the theater. I was hoping to play DDR, but the machine was busy so while I was looking around I see a prize game different than most. It was a realitively simple game where the object was to stack up a series of blocks all the way to the top. It started with 3 blocks and then becomes two, and eventually one. If you don't keep them going straight up and miss lining up at least one block you lose. The interesting part was that while there was a middle level prize where you could stop and get stuff like yo-yo's and little die cast cars. Then there was the top level prizes that included Mercenaries(Xbox), Metroid Prime II, NBA Street Vol 3(GC), Need For Speed Underground 2(GC), Doom III(PC), Evercrack II(PC), and some walkie-talkies. I won both Mercenaries and Metroid Prime II for a total of $12 or so. The game itself was fun, but I couldn't believe it when I first one and got Mercenaries. If I had had some more cash I was going to go for NBA Street and Doom III. After the movies I was able to get the last of the Bacardi Vanilla from my friend and a couple Sin City trades to read. Its been a good night.

Shootin' the Breeze / Walk Down the Right Back Alley in Sin City...
« on: December 21, 2004, 08:00:37 PM »

Here's a direct link for those who can't get it to work from the page.

After watching it I'm so freakin hyped about seeing it. I've been waiting to see this trailer and it does not fail to impress. At first I was a bit worried about the movie when it was announced, even though Rodriguez is a great director, but as more and more info became available, the more I wanted to see it. I think I'm gonna break out my Sin City collected and read it again.

Shootin' the Breeze / Macross Zero
« on: December 06, 2003, 05:23:30 AM »
Macross Zero the 5 episode OVA covering the time that lead up to the events of Super Deminsional Fortress Macross is currently in production/release in Japan. The halfway point was reached with the recent release of episode 3 last month. Once again it proves itself to be once of the best animated shows. The blend of 2D and 3D is nigh perfect, smoothly flowing from the 2D characters to the 3D ships, Valkyries, etc. Featuring the most action in the series thus far, episode 3 starts a little slow, but blows up into some of the best anime action in a while. This is deffinitely a series that needs to be liscensed and put out in the US soon.

I got linked to from The Spectrum, and after lurking for a few days decided to join. Berserk is one of my favorite animes and manga. It'll be nice to discuss it and people know what I'm talking about.
