Shootin' the Breeze / Re: Gen Con Anyone?

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:

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:

« 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:

How about Hebrew?
Because Guts's got chutzpa! :guts:

But for some strange reason, that made me think about Fiddler on the Roof: Berserk style. I can see it now, a line of Daka partaking in some Russian folkdancing. :serpico:

Speculation Nation / Re: Berserk on a motion picture?!?!?

Something as epic as Berserk would surely require lots of international collaboration, I think. It would be hard to have it in Japanese as a live action film (although I would probably prefer it that way, given the choice) because of the broad range of racial characteristics amongst the cast.

But, bah... who am I kidding? Berserk could never fit within the limits of even a 3 hour movie (if it were to not suck dirt, that is). I'd wish they'd start from scratch with the anime like they're doing with Hellsing, instead. But that's a whole different conversation. :puck:

I saw it last night, and I enjoyed it. I have to admit, I didn't have very high standards when I walked in. ^^; I'm looking forward to the (hopefully) final film in the series, though.

Johnny Depp was probably the most entertaining aspect of the whole movie (other than the swordfighting sequences), because Orlando Bloom was a bit too stiff and... well, basically everything else acting-wise was forgettable. :<

Oh wow! So great! Can you speak Persian?
Oh my! a half Persian Berserk fan, :isidro: tiihii!
I'm afraid I don't know how to speak much Farsi (Other than my mom's favorite curse words, of course :carcus:), but I am planning on learning some time in the future, I hope. What about you?

And yes, us half-Persian Berserk fans sure are few and far between, but we are just as enthusiastic as any! :serpico:

Wow, that's freaking hardcore. :SK: You can definitely tell Chris Cunningham directed that, heh. I still have to say that I like what he did with that Madonna song a tad better, but that one was a longer video, so I suppose it isn't fair to compare them too closely.

He accepts fan mail via Hakusensha and Young Animal.
Ah, of course! I forgot about that alternative method, there. I wonder if he'll get a lot of presents from fans. :isidro:

Happy Birthday Miura!  :miura:
I'm more interested with how you got his address!
I concur. From what I understand, Mr. Miura would be awfully secretive about that stuff, considering he didn't want people to see him in that DVD interview. :x

But I don't know what I'd get him for his birthday. A juicemaker, maybe? :troll: Or perhaps one of those spiffy Berserk watches from Art of War!

He's Naked Snake, AKA... BIG BOSS.

Is that so? Hm.. well, that sure narrows things down, thank you. Maybe I should actually play the games, I'm tired of getting lost when people make Metal Gear references that I don't understand. :judo: Shame on me!

Haha, of course! The idea never crossed my mind Griffith, but your... re-alteration is very funny. XD I haven't much experience with that game series though, so I'm afraid that I don't recognize who Zodd is supposed to be. I guess I'll have to do a little research. :carcus:
