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...

-Paradiselost
"

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.

There...


Today I got this email.

"We at Hakusensha Inc. is a publishing company
of BERSERK.
Thank you for your reading our comics, but as you
notice, it is illegal to use any of Berserk illustrations as
well as our other comics' illustrations.

Please delete Berserk illustrations and related comments
immediately, and please do not use them from now on.

Thank you for your understanding.

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:
paradiselost@iol.it


PS: Yes it really was Hakusensha, the mail came from the PR guy @hakusensha.co.jp

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. ( http://www.animemetropolis.com/kodocha ) 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.

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.

Shootin' the Breeze / xXx

WELCOME TO THE XANDER ZONE!!





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