Check out the Ali G show.
I knew he looked familiar... I guess they're one and the same. Truly, a master of disguises!

I am not know Borat until yesterday when friend show clip on interwebs. Talented and hairy, I wish for him a thousand virgins in afterlife! Plus I go look on his movie.

He's holding her shoulder actually (putting the cloak more tightly around her so she doesn't catch a cold).
Really? Aw, dagnabbit. I got so excited when I first noticed it, since it sure looked like her hair. Oh well, still a touching scene.

And to stay on topic a bit more, I'll just mention an instance that I'm sure wasn't caused by hallucination. In that part in Volume 12 where Griffith has that big epiphany with the old woman and the pile of bodies, I'd overlooked a rather interesting bit when reading the first time where the fortune teller is shown to be Ubik sitting on top of Conrad with a little mask and costume. It kind of made me want to chuckle, but it's a bit depressing when you think about it. :[

I'm usually pretty dense when I read things the first time around, and Berserk is no exception, as much as I hate to admit it. :judo: Though there's the one frame in Volume 23, on the page where Guts kneels in front of Casca, that struck me particularly. I didn't really see from where his hand was, but I believe Guts was actually holding a lock of Casca's hair before wiping her face. To me, it just made that whole moment much more significant. :casca: I'd never noticed it while reading it the first time, now I'm surprised that I could have overlooked it.

Berserk Merchandise / Re: AOW - Young Animal exclusive T-shirts

Aw, man... I actually think these shirts are pretty cool, especially the Armored Berserk one (though I get the feeling that I'm gonna be in the minority with this). It's a drag that they only come in Medium..

I know that I'm probably just repeating what other people have been saying, but I feel inclined to finally add a post here. Simply put, my dear CnC, I have found your colors to be fascinating to scrutinize, particularly this last one of the ship. The way you colored the sunlight falling over the waves and the horizon is really fabulous! :serpico: I look forward to future works with enthusiasm.

Shootin' the Breeze / Re: Korgoth of Barbaria

I just watched that pilot episode last night, it was pretty good. Kind of reminded me of that show "Dave the Barbarian" on the Disney channel, but, you know... not meant for kids. :void:

And Skullgrin, maybe if you cited some examples as to why you think Korgoth and Guts are similar it would help what you're trying to explain here. I personally can't think of how they might be related, aside from the fact that they're big and kill things. :???:

Berserk Miscellaneous / Re: How did you get into Berserk?
« on: August 11, 2006, 02:38:06 PM »
My story begins, on a rainy night.  About, 6 or so years ago, I rented the first dvd on a whim from the local Hastings *book, cd, video / rental store*  And I kinda liked it, but I had to continue with the story.  They only had up to about episode 15 or so in discs...I was stuck right in the middle of the anime with no continuation in sight.  So I have to drop it for about, 2-3 years...

Whoaman, up till this point the story of how you got into Berserk is almost identical to mine. Only I didn't have a friend who had read the manga. I'm all by myself because everyone else I know thinks decaptiated heads and entrails are too gross. Wusses, bwahaha! :badbone:

Wow... I'm sorry to hear that he's passed away, as I used to be a big fan of his work. I read part of the Jon Shannow series when I was 11 or 12 while traveling in England, and I remember really getting into the story.

Though I've never really been a big reader of fantasy literature, his stuff I really enjoyed. It's a shame he died so suddenly and at such a young age.

Ahhh, so close and yet so far. :puck: Wish I could come, but it's a no-go, captain.

Congrats on it being a boy.  If it were a girl, berserk would be the least of your worries in 17 years(teenage girls = the devil).
Oh man... you're breakin' my heart here. :judo: But you're right.

Anyway Pesmerga, start your kid out the right way and buy/make him some Berserk plush toys! That way you can act out scenes from the manga without all the blood and violence. :badbone: Pesmerga Junior will thank you for it.

Now I never, EVER want to hear the "D" word again. The scary sweaty bald man ruined it for me.

But speaking of outrageous people on stage, here's a simply stupendous performance from my all-time favorite band. :serpico:

Congratulations on becoming a dad, Pesmerga! Best of luck with all that baby-taking-care-of business, as I hear it can be rather gruesome. :puck:

So that's why all my friends are rushing out to buy one...

Deduction: iPods = secks. :troll:

In all seriousness though, iPods are overhyped to death. THIS IS THE ONLY WAY TO QUELL ITS VICIOUS MONOPOLY!

That title is very promising. :guts: At last, at laaaast!

And one question came into mind from seeing this preview: how can Guts kick so much tush with such sparse boot traction? I ask you. :schierke:

Yeah, I just heard on the news that he's checking into rehab. Now all I can think about is that all the little old ladies who cried when they saw the Passion of the Christ are gonna be watching this. :schierke:

I'm still gonna be watching Apocalypto though, that flick looks sweet. :SK:

Daaaang. Well, that was fun to look at during breakfast. :SK: Otherwise, very detailed thingamabob. I would have it sitting by my bed so I could wake up to its face... and entrails every morning. Cheers, Mr. Nirasawa.

Bah i see =( I liked the anime up till the end which was just bleh.  I assume the manga isnt released in America yet? I have not seen it or im just really really blind
No, the manga hasn't been released in America yet, as far as I know. Just checked on Amazon and the only versions I see of it I see are in Spanish.

And not to be off-topic here, but I'd like to point out that there's a lot more to Gantz than sex and violence. The development of fairly true-to-life characters within an extraordinary situation is what makes it interesting for me. But I think I'll just stop there before I start over-doing it. :miura:

Hmm, it's pretty cool where I am, since it rained recently.  I'm sure it will be back in the 90's soon enough though.  :puck:
Well, up here in the Bay Area it's hot, at least. I should have specified. In any case, it's nearly impossible to move in such unbearable heat! :judo:

Edit: Nevermind, I forgot that you're in Kentucky. Blast my poor memory skills! But anyway, yeah, I'd kill for some rain right now.

And us Northwest weather wimps are dying in this 100 degree (Fahrenheit) weather right now.  Where's our tolerable 50 degrees, huh? :judo:
Yeah, t's pretty unbearable in California right now as well. I don't think I've perspired so much from just sitting around and lurking in forums. :schierke:

Movies, TV, Books & Music / Re: Batman Begins...again
« on: July 22, 2006, 01:31:24 AM »
Hmmm. Well, now that I think about it, Heath Ledger wouldn't be a completely unusual choice. Though most people remember him for his serious acting work in Brokeback Mountain (which, I must admit, is a far cry from a character like the Joker), I think he could pull it off with the right amount of makeup and a cool costume (Bah, I feel so superficial saying that). :guts: From what I've seen of his interviews, he doesn't take himself too seriously, which would be quite essential to playing such a well loved villian. And his mouth has that turny-uppy quality to it, which helps too.

And Robin Williams couldn't ever play the Joker, in my opinion. His type of humor is of a different flavor, and besides, he's too hairy. :troll:

Movies, TV, Books & Music / Re: Rocky VI: Rocky Balboa
« on: July 18, 2006, 04:05:38 AM »
Place your bets.  Who's gonna win?

I'm betting on Mason over Rocky.  Mainly because the simulation showed Rocky win, so of course it's not gonna turn out that way.  Plus, Stallone said that it's not about winning, it's about proving to yourself that you can still do it (or something to that effect).  So, Mason for the win (even though I'd rather see Rocky win).
I agree. I don't think they could end the series on such a predictable note as Rocky actually winning. There's creative license and then there's complete unrealistic Hollywood mumbo jumbo. :puck:

Well, all we really know about the torture is what the little jailer guy mentions when he tries to catch Guts, Casca, and the other rescuers down at the bottom of the tower. He says that he cut the tendons in Griffith's arms and legs, pulled out his nails, tore off his skin whenever he wasn't sleeping or eating, burned him with hot irons and boiling water, and took out his tongue... I hope I didn't miss anything. :puck:

Anyway, I hope that helps you out. I got my information from Dark Horse's translation of volume 10, which I'm assuming is pretty accurate.

Yeah, I saw the trailer for it when I went to see Dead Man's Chest on Tuesday. Though I'm naturally a bit skeptical, I can't help but feel like this is going to be a good movie. But, of course, it's impossible to make any kind of determination now, so it's fun just so see the details of the film as they roll in. :serpico:

Well, i have two friends that are Persian if that counts  :troll:

Unfortunatley they moved back to Bahrain this summer, so i cannot see them anymore.
That's sad to hear, I have a friend who moved away recently as well, so I understand how that feels to a degree. :judo:
But Persian by association is a good start! Everybody's a little Persian on the inside, you know. :troll:
