Shootin' the Breeze / Nearly ready for release

Wow...That wasnt hard at all. I thank Cronus for the tip on the nifty, easy as hell to configure board.

Can you say, Pirate? Yarr. I know that I can, matey.

Yarr...where be me booty? Anyway, this guy not only blatantly stole the current chapters, he took all of sections 1, and 2 of the FAQ and threw it on his site, with some damned nifty character pics (which I cant say anything negative about unfortunately)...and yes, without my permission. and YES this is a bitch fest.

He DID however, make original screen captures for the anime from apparently the original DVD source. Im happy for those, and the images in the character sections...HOWEVER, the rest...We will discuss.

If you havent payed any attention to the news, The World Trade Center, or the Twin Towers as some call them have been destroyed by 2 757's that plowed their way through the buildings early this morning.  The pentagon's army division was also destroyed, (taking up about 1/5 of the pentagon itself) I personally am still stunned, and have been watching the news for the past 6 hours.

On a more comical note, President Bush has informed us that he will "get those folks".

How reassuring...

My friend Dboykun (the guy who coded the old BBS here) just informed me of this:

"There were reports of gunfire in celebration of the attacks in Lebanon, home to some 360,000 Palestinian refugees.", Im really a big fan of humanity right now.

Shootin' the Breeze / Desperation attack! SHINkuuu....PARADISELOSTINSULT
« on: September 25, 2001, 08:41:11 AM »

...after the last comments that Walter, and Cronus, and Oliver said...

...well, what can I say... comment, I have never seen idiots like this Board Administrator...


Im sure most of you have seen the  atrocity that is Paradiselost's apparent attempt at revenge, or some sort of LAST CHANCE move on virtually every post in this board. We are most likely going to ban him today, however...We would like your approval. He is,  of cource a part of the community and NONE OF US want this to become some sort of group where people are punished for speaking their mind. Its just that Paradiselost has been extremely excessive for months in flagrantly accusing native-speaking english Americans of bad english, claiming that Olivier needs to further understand Berserk and become more educated (although indirectly complementing him with a double negative in the same post) and generally becomeing a disturbance on the board.

THe point of this post is...Who agrees with the admin's on the banning decision? We want this to be a community decision. We will require 20 responses in favor of Paradiselost's ban in order to take action against it.

Otherwise, it would just be a select group of people not wanting to hear his posts anymore. And thats just unfair. So, state your agreeances, or disputes here.

Shootin' the Breeze / Biggest Change Ever...
« on: October 03, 2001, 08:26:05 AM »
A while back, days after we were virtually forced to ban Paradiselost, I got an email that said:

...hi Wally...

...I'm sorry you took your idiot decision...

...however, I'll respect it, no problem...

...but, I really hope you'll be able to respct my next decision, boy...

...I'm really sorry...


... what's a pity...


pit·y (pt)
n. pl. pit·ies
1) Sympathy and sorrow aroused by the misfortune or suffering of another.
2) A matter of regret: It's a pity she can't attend the reception.


Today I got this email.

"We at Hakusensha Inc. is a publishing company
Thank you for your reading our comics, but as you

immediately, and please do not use them from now on.

Which means, bye bye to scans. Im not even going to attempt to go against Hakusensha, they fully have the right to take legal action against me. Personally Im very satisfied with this, since all I have to do is remove scans. It was bound to happen one day, however...I think its safe to say that you can blame Paradiselost for contacting Hakusensha, since he had contacted them a few weeks earlier about the relevance of "Chapter 83". Yes, it is safe to blame Paradiselost for ruining the fun for everyone.

Oh and on a completely seperate note, email is:

PS: Yes it really was Hakusensha, the mail came from the PR guy

Shootin' the Breeze / Quasi-Neo Board
« on: January 14, 2002, 12:47:30 AM »
As you indefinately have noticed, the board has been updated. If anyone has any weird errors, dont hesitate to IM me. Hope you all like the changes! Im still tweaking it myself...

Oh, and for the next day or so, dont write any Thesis's because the board will be going on and offline very VERY often.

However, just to give you a general estimate of when to post and when NOT to post:

01/14/01: post : 5am-2pm (US eastern)
                DONT POST: 2pm-6pm
                post: 6pm-xx


Legend of Galactic Heroes (LoGH for short), has long been one of my favorite series. It is a space war/political drama that feels more unique than anything I have ever experienced on the wonderful machine known as Television. I am not exaggerating. However, I dread to claim its my favorite series, mostly because it would be ludicrous since I run a Berserk site. But seriously, if you have not seen this series, I beg you to. ( ) That is, only if you are a fan of war drama. If your favorite aspects of berserk are the number of intestines that fly out of someones body when Guts smacks them, I severely advise you to stay away, from both me and the series.

To the point: Since 1996-1997, there have only been 42 out of ~100 eps fansubbed/translated. Adding to the frustration is the fact that Episode 42 leaves you on one of the largest cliffhangers of the series. This is an atrocity. I have searched for years, high and low hoping for more translations. What is even more frustrating is the fact that there is an extremely large fan base of the series, its just that 99/100 of them dont speak japanese, and those that do, arent willing to translate. It is truly a sad state of affairs.

Ultimately what Im asking is whether or not there are some LoGH fans out there, and are familiar with the above frustration. If so, leave a message! Id love to talk with fellow LoGH fans.


Shootin' the Breeze / The Parlor (high connections needed)
« on: March 27, 2002, 12:43:18 PM »
Best short film (10 minutes) Ive seen in a while. Funny, dramatic, and a great angle on today's online society.

If youre below a cable, I dont think itll run very good.

Try to guess whats going on before 5 minutes are up, and you beat me.  ;D Spoilers will be deleted if posted.

2012 UPDATE:

Shootin' the Breeze / Attack of the Clones Preview (article)

Found this while browsing a few SF sites:

Spoilers are within[/b], but only after the first like 10 paragraphs, which is where I stopped reading. Read with discretion.

PS: DO NOT, I repeat NOT discuss spoilers here. If you do, your post will promptly be deleted. A simple: "badass" or "it suqs" will suffice for comment here.

I really had hoped xXx would have been better... Like the next 'Commando'. But alas... just another Vin Diesel movie.
