There really is no other way of putting it: Holy Shit!  :isidro: I can't wait to see the full episode.

102
Started to watch The Americans last weekend, got hooked and finished the first 2 seasons. It's a spy-drama, takes place in the 80's, main characters are KGB agents and it gets complicated as the things they're required to do get all the more dangerous. It felt like a solid 7/10 kinda show. Check out the pilot if you have the time.

I watched the first season a while ago and I enjoyed it quite a bit. I plan on watching the second season soon. I liked Keri Russell's performance in what I saw, as well as Matthew Rhys', but I have to say that I thought his character was a bit creepy.

Reading Aazealh's summary I couldn't help getting a Divine Comedy feeling from this episode. I can't wait to get my hands on the full episode. T minus six days and counting...

On paper I don't see Mexico beating the Netherlands , but there have been surprises on this WC.

No surprise in the end.  :judo: Another exit in the round of sixteen after being so close... what a shame.

I've never liked Robben and I like him even less after today. Such a diver. And he wonders why referees don't give him the calls.

Great tutorial! Thank you very much for taking the time of putting it together. There's indeed no excuse anymore not to buy the episodes now.

Just one comment: if the email address you provide to register is from certain domains, there's an extra step before the confirmation email is sent (my guess is that it's email addresses from free email providers such as Gmail, Yahoo, etc). It's not that big a deal, but I thought I'd share it in case someone else encounters this.

I just saw Edge of Tomorrow and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I didn't really know anything about this movie until about a couple of days ago, but I started hearing so many good things about it that I decided to give it a shot. I'm really glad I did. I think Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt are really good in it, and so are Bill Paxton and Brendan Gleeson. The only downside is that I think the movie runs out of steam a bit towards the end, and I wasn't quite happy with the ending itself, but overall it was well worth my money. I definitely recommend it.

The logo Incantation posted and Walter mentioning runes reminded me that I once saw a pendant that reminded me of the brand when I was at some shop:

http://icelandicjewelry.com/brands/alrun-nordic-jewelry/silver-rune-pendant-heart

The design is quite similar to the logo but, when I read about it in the link above, I found out that the design was based on the runes used to spell the word heart, and I thought it was a bit funny that a design reminiscent of the brand was inspired by the word heart.

Indeed it is.

Thank you!  :serpico:

I'm really curious to learn why Griffith set it up, but I guess it'll  probably be clear when their meeting takes place.

Thank you for another great episode!

There's one thing I'd like to ask you to confirm, if you don't mind: regarding the scrolls given to Rickert, in particular the one granting him an audience with Griffith, from what was said in the podcast I took it that the audience was set up in advance, and that the audience was set up specifically for Rickert. Is this so?

Dude, you're a bad influence on me..gonna have to check this out  :void: btw, you from Stockholm too?

Nope, I'm in Gothenburg.

I don't know if you can find them at some stores over there, but you can find both Sriracha and Valentina at Extreme Food (http://www.extremefood.se)

Valentina is great.  Do they have the different kinds of it in Sweden?  Because the black label one (the extra hot version) is pretty solid.

Yep, we can get both the regular and the black label Valentina, and I completely agree with you.  :serpico: I actually never found it as hot as advertised, though.

If they sell it over there you should try out a sauce called Cholula.  I didn't like it much when I first tried it, but it grew on me quickly.  Now I consider it my favorite out of all the Mexican hot sauces I have tried.

I'll see if we can get if here to give it a try. Thanks for the tip!

What's Sriracha? I live in Sweden....  :ganishka:

Sriracha is a red sauce that is available in most if not all Thai restaurants in Sweden (I live in Sweden too  :slan:). I myself am on a Sriracha kick lately.

Another favorite of mine is Valentina: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valentina_%28hot_sauce%29

As to your question, I think you can get hooked on hot food and sauces. There's some dishes I can't imagine having without Sriracha or Valentina.

Thank you for another fantastic episode!

I think the re-reads are turning out really well, I hope you'll continue doing them. It's very interesting to listen to what you have to say about the volumes, both as to how each of them relates to the overall story, but also on the page level; you guys don't seem to miss the smallest detail.

I also like the sections about stuff that I might not be that interested into, such as certain video games or some TV shows; I still find those sections quite entertaining.

I'm watching the second season of Real Humans, a show that I really like. I thoroughly recommend it to anybody that has the chance to watch it (it apparently has been sold to about 50 countries)

The summary of the show, from Wikipedia, is:

"Real Humans (Swedish title: Äkta människor) is a 2012 Swedish science fiction/drama series set in an alternate version of modern day Sweden where humanoid robot workers and servants are widespread. The series follows the resulting emotional effects on two families as well as the trials of a group of robots who have attained free will and want their freedom from human ownership."

I'm with you, I also think it was a good season finale. I also agree that ending Brody's arc was the right thing to do, but it was still a bit sad to see him go.

I think this is actually a good point to stop watching, I'm not sure I want to sit through another season for just two good episodes.

I just watched episode 11 and I think it's the episode I've enjoyed the most the whole season, which might not be much all things considered, but still... I'm actually looking forward to watching the season finale.

Going into the finale I wonder how the writers plan on solving the current situation, on one hand I'm still rooting for Brody, but on the other hand, if he gets out of this one it will be a bit more of what Walter was saying: how can there be any suspense if he's basically untouchable?

Probably my favorite part of the episode was the scene where Abu Nazir's widow and Brody met. I think the scene was well done overall, but her performance in particular was what stood out to me.

Not sure what you mean. Like, the odd time someone joins a call mid-recording? I think that's happened a total of 2 times. But if they're that bothersome, I'll try to remember to disable them on the machine that records.

I'm more referring to the sounds someone gets when they get a message (the first sound on this link: https://soundcloud.com/beyondthebeep/skype-first-message-received). I think doing the show using Skype is a good way of doing it, it's just these sounds that throw me off.

I think I may have a negative predisposition to the Skype sounds (perhaps a pavlovian response or something).  :farnese:

I wasn't sure whether or not to mention this but, since you did ask what we'd like to hear less of, I personally would like to hear less Skype sounds, I find them annoying in general and hearing them during an otherwise quite informative and entertaining podcast is distracting to me (they don't pop up on every show but when they do they completely throw me off). I think the production value of the show i quite good, but it would be even better without those sounds.

Whether Brody is or isn't actually a sleeper-cell terrorist isn't very interesting suspense within the trappings of a TV series that spans three seasons now ("Hey, I bet he doesn't actually blow himself up in the first season finale")..

That's certainly a problem for new viewers, but for people following the show as it aired it probably wasn't as much so. It certainly wasn't for me (particularly since I don't follow news mentioning show renewals, returning characters, etc.)

So I'll  keep waiting for that next great show to emerge, because this isn't it. It's merely okay, with a solid lead.

Good call. Based on your comments on the show I think you would be better off if you don't go any further because it doesn't get better. I'd say season two is on par with season one but season three is, in my opinion, a lot weaker than the first two. As I mentioned earlier on this thread, I myself am considering whether I should continue watching or not, but I'd say will probably watch season three in its entirety and decide when it ends.

Anyway, I watched episode 7 and it was OK I liked that they finally mentioned something related to Brody's innocence; I thought this season would be focused on clearing his name and boy was I wrong.

The Raid 2 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ObJKvZRlSSY

The Raid was fantastic, I hope the sequel holds up. I'm definitely looking forward to watching it.

Disney's Frozen by the same guys who did Tangled - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FLzfXQSPBOg

I watched a trailer once and it failed to catch my attention. Since then my interest on this movie really sank, though I think I will still see it at some point.

What did you think of episode 6, m?

I thought the episode was better than some of the previous ones. Man, the way Javadi killed his ex-wife was vicious. I was wondering why he stopped by that house when he initially got to the States; that most certainly cleared it. Yeah, Saul breaking(?) his nose was cool, too bad it was too little, too late. Brody's return? Who's this Brody you talk about? :troll: But seriously, I'd really like to see what's going on with him, though I guess he's most likely exactly where we last saw him, getting addicted to heroin.

I still haven't watched episode 7, I hope I'll get to it soon. How was it?

Recently uploaded video of Inoue. According to the video's info it says (Google translated) - "Message Inoue Takehiko, author of Slam Dunk, Real and Vagabond, thanking the award received in the nineteenth Barcelona Manga Manga as best author, and apologizing for not being able to attend."

I'll prolly pause every frame and translate it in Google either tonight or tomorrow, for a transcript since I don't understand Spanish text.

I watched the video and decided to try to translate it for you, though I'm not much of a translator. I hope I can do at least a little better than Google.

Hola soy Inoue Takehiko (Hello, I'm Inoue Takehiko). Greetings to all the people that will attend "Salón del Manga", Barcelona. I'm Takehiko Inoue.

Thank you very much for reading my manga, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

It's been almost 400 years since the cultural exchange between Japan and Spain started. Last year I published a book called "Pepita", in which I share my views on Gaudí through drawings and words. Next year, Tokyo will host the Gaudí Expo, which is currently being organized by people from Japan and Spain. I will also be involved in the expo.

I just received an email regarding "Salón del Manga" of Barcelona, where I was notified that thanks to the votes from the readers I was awarded the award called "Gran Premio" (Grand Prize). Thank you very much, I'm truly honored; particularly because I was selected by the readers, which is something that makes me really happy as a mangaka. Thank you. I won't be able to attend "Salón del Manga" this year, but I hope that in the near future I will be able to meet with all of you. I can't wait for that day to come.

Thank you very much.

Hasta luego! (Until next time)
