Well not sure where to start...hrmmmm.

I am currently working for an alternative paper in Kansas City, MO. I went to college and got my BA in Illustration/Commercial Art. I love daydreaming and do it more than I should... :D

My favorites shonen right now are:

Bleach, Naruto, One Piece, Hitman Reborn, Fairy Tale, Psyren, Gantz, D Gray Man and just got into Akaboshi - Ibun Suikoden. (I realize Gantz is a Seinen... whoops! :D)

As far as any anime... I would not know where to start with that. I have enjoyed and watched all kinds of series. I would say everything above plus:

GTO, Record Lodoss Wars, Heat Guy J, Karas, GunXSword, Trigun, Full Metal Alchemist, Full Metal Panic, Eureka 7, Dragonball, Blood, all of Satoshi Kon's films, Wolf's Rain, Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo, Outlaw Star, Ghost in the Shell... and sooo many more. :D

I am afraid I am not to familiar with anything shoujo... so I don't think so.


Hello ghostexiled :) Yoroshiku~
Questions:
What sports are you interested in?
What console/PC games do you play?

I like sports on a casual level... not a big fan of any sport in particular.

I love video games.... all kinds. I have had almost every console since the Atari. Currently I have just the xbox 360, I had to the Wii... but I traded it for a Wacom tablet for my art. :D No PS3, cause it soooo expensive for me right now. :D

I love RPG's (Japanese ones) First person shooters (love BioShock) and slash em hack em (Devil May Cry)

Right now I waiting for "Brutal Legend" and "Batman: Arkham Asylum"

Anything else... I would love to answer, so keep them coming! :D

I have not really kept up with the Blizzard games recently... however, I did play the hell outta Starcraft back in High School. :P

I am looking forward to the new Final Fantasy game and looking out for the next installment of Kingdom Hearts though!

I mainly spend my time drawing random things that I think of, there is a link to my art in my sig. Let me know what you guys think! :)

Aaaww, there's like noone playing starcraft on MH ;( And very few persons playing on bnet... Need to move to South Korea >.>
New Final Fantasy game is either going to be awesome or a totally flop, hope it'll be great! :x

Buy Starcraft 2 when it gets released :occa

Imo you're very good ^_^ especially wind warrior is my favourite because the contours are kind of thick and you coloured it "softly"... It's easy for your eyes to look at it and at the same time it's awesome :P

(If you know what I mean -.-'

I would love to play games.... I just don't have the time these days to play like I did back in college... ah those were the days. :P

I play games that are easy to get into and out of, these days. With the few exceptions of Square Enix games.

Thanks for the compliment on my piece! I try very hard to make time for some art... I have a new one i am trying to get done, hopefully this weekend I can get to it.

If there is any other questions, I am willing to dish out my know how's! :D

You can send my some brownies! :D

There is only one thing that I see wrong:

If you notice that there aren't a thread for the sport you wanna discuss - make the thread yourself! Everything that can be classified as a sport is accepted here, whether it's playing football or throwing horseshoes.

Should say isn't

Or you can say, "If you notice that there aren't any threads for the sport..."

other than that... looks good!

Heya, ghostie! My promised post, which also comes with a glomp. :glomp :XD

A few questions for ya:

When and how did you get into manga/anime?
Any plans to try out some shoujo? If no, why not?
What kind of music do you like? Any favorite artists in particular?

Hmmm.... I think that'll do for now. More later. :lovebunny

Glomps are always welcomed! :p

well let's see... I got into anime first and it was Dragonball when I was 16 years old. I continued for a good while only watching anime, until sometime during college I learned that some anime was based off manga so I started to read the mangas to the shows that I was currently watching (Bleach, Naruto and One Piece)

I am sorry... what is shoujo exactly? I know shonen and seinen... but outside those 2 I have not really gotten into. I am not against new stuff, I just know there are tons of stuff out there... so I usually stick to stuff that I am familiar with. Boring I know! :p But if there is anything that anybody is willing to recommend, I am willing to take a peek! :D

I do have to say I really have never gotten into mech based stories... but there have been exceptions to this. Full Metal Panic, I absolutely love! There are a few others that I have liked but can't seem to remember their names at the moment...

Music... I like all kinds really, but nothing too the extreme of any genres. ex: Gangsta rap - I like hip-hop more and Heavy metal - I like just rock.

Right now I just got into Elbow, they are an indie group from England. I also like Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Queens of the Stone Age and Method Man & Redman... at the moment.

August 23, 2009, 04:32 PM
Shoujo is THE genre to read when it comes to manga. Everything that's not super mainstream yet mindblowing comes from that genre...Oh, apart from School Days... it's sick!!!!!! Shoujo manga is manga aimed to the female audience at the age of like... 12-18 (something like that) and it's often either drama, romance and/or comedy. It circulates around a girl and how she things, with one or more beautiful (fan-service) male character(s) that circulates around her. It's drawn in a way to attract the female audience with a lot of work done on the males to make them look hawt but also at the girls for equalizing the beauty-aspects.

Nevertheless....


It owns :x

Read Skip Beat, Fruits Basket and Ouran High!!! NOW!!!!!

I haven't found this question here yet so I'll ask, what ARE you currently reading? (genre wise)?

Hello, koenosaki! :D

the story behind my nickname... hrmmmm. Well it comes from several different places actually.

Ghost - comes from me being kinda on the pale side, I can't get a decent tan to save my life! :p Also, when I was younger I was kinda like a ghost... few people paid attention to me and I stayed out of the path of the "All seeing eye"!

Exiled - comes from always coming and going from places... I moved around a lot when I was younger. So it also felt that I was being exiled to a new place when I was younger.

I live in Kansas City, Missouri. I am desperately trying to leave... it sucks here! :p I need/want to travel more... Japan is in my cross hairs! :D


I haven't found this question here yet so I'll ask, what ARE you currently reading? (genre wise)?

Bleach, Naruto, One Piece, Fairy Tale, DGM, Gantz, Psyren and Reborn. So Shonen and Seinen.

I am breezing thru Rave Master right now in my spare time.

I need to start FMA, I watched their first go thru of it and found out they went away from the manga half way thru it. I am also watching the new one that is suppose to be more faithful the manga.

I have to go record saying that do know about a ton more series out there... I have watched their respective animes, I just have not gotten around to reading their respective mangas.

But Blai, I will fo sho check out those Shoujo that you recommended me! :D

Nice. ^^ I think Dragonball was the first anime for a lot of people around here. I was a bit of a late bloomer entering into the otaku world, so I've never seen/read it. :darn I started out with Inuyasha instead. I found anime on adult swim and then eventually made my way to manga after I discovered its existence.


I am sorry... what is shoujo exactly? I know shonen and seinen... but outside those 2 I have not really gotten into. I am not against new stuff, I just know there are tons of stuff out there... so I usually stick to stuff that I am familiar with. Boring I know! :p But if there is anything that anybody is willing to recommend, I am willing to take a peek! :D
It seems Blai already explained shoujo pretty well, but yeah, you should really give it a try (I was hesitant to branch out as well, so don't feel bad ;)). It's good if you're in the mood for something sweet or angsty/dramatic (depending on the series you choose). I'd personally say to give NANA (http://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=655) a try if you're looking for something on the more angsty side (plenty of comedy in here, too) or Kimi ni Todoke (http://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=3058) for something a little lighter on the drama.


I do have to say I really have never gotten into mech based stories... but there have been exceptions to this. Full Metal Panic, I absolutely love! There are a few others that I have liked but can't seem to remember their names at the moment...
Yep, I'm the same way. :amuse Not big into mecha, but I've run into a few that I really liked. Code Geass, for example, was awesome but I found myself bored and spacing out a lot during the mecha scenes. :p


Music... I like all kinds really, but nothing too the extreme of any genres. ex: Gangsta rap - I like hip-hop more and Heavy metal - I like just rock.

Right now I just got into Elbow, they are an indie group from England. I also like Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Queens of the Stone Age and Method Man & Redman... at the moment.
Rock would be my preferred music as well. ^^ Love QOTSA! They were veeery disappointing live, though. Saw them a few years back -- and maybe I caught them on a bad day -- but Josh Homme sounded like crap. :s

Hmmm.... more questions.... What's your favorite food? Do you have any guilty pleasures? :fan

Favorites food... wow, lets see here... I like all kinds really! But if I had to pick, I would say that I am a steak and potato kinda man. I was raised in the country, so I am a carnivore! :D

Guilty pleasures would have to be... I am a sucker for chick flicks and romantic comedies! But don't tell anyone! :p

Also I like emotional stuff (very unmanly) "Wolf's Rain" had me crying like a baby at the end of that flipping series! :s

You like chick flicks, eh? Then what's your favorite... *thinking of stereotypical chick flick actor/actress*.... Meg Ryan movie? No wait! Your favorite Hugh Grant movie? :XD

J/k, I actually think it's good if you're in touch with your emotional side. :amuse And now I'm more convinced than ever that you need to try some shoujo! :shakefist

It is funny you should say him... one of all my time favorites is "About a Boy".


So, being serious this time, what *are* some of your all-time favorite movies?

Well as mentioned above, About a Boy... would be one of them.

Lost in Translation, Garden State, Equilibrium, Groundhog Day, Leon the Professional, Last Samurai, Memoirs of a Geisha and pretty much all of Satoshi Kon's (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0464804/) movies.

I use to work at Blockbuster for 4 years... so I have seen aloooooooooooot of movies and there are alooooooooooot that I like. But these are some that stand out, that I can remember at the moment! :p

I liked Memoirs of a Geisha a lot. I have a cool anecdote:
I watched that movie unintentionally. I remember I saw a cool trailer of another asian movie on TV. I think, it was golden flower, cursed flower, or something like that. I said to some mates: "damned, that movie looks pretty awesome. Chinese war romance/historical movie. Crouching tiger, hidden dragon, hero, etc always cool movies to see those martial arts scenes". They don't love these kind of movies as much as I do, but well I could convince them to watch it in the cinema

You had to see me after the movie. I was so happy I had mistaken myself. I loved the movie and my mates loved it too. I think they happily blamed my mistake

btw, any opinion about crash?

Curse of the Golden Flower (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0473444/) that was a really awesome movie, I agree! :)

Crash the movie? Which one?

This one (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0375679/) or this one (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0115964/)? :p

I am sure you mean the first one, if so... yeah I liked that movie! The other one was a bit too weird for me.

Just curious, care to list your top 10 manga that you're currently reading? I figured Bleach must be high on your list since you had an avatar of Ichigo, but then again since Reborn isn't my number 1 even though its in my signature. So yea.

Haha... first let me thank you for coming to this thread and asking me stuff! :) I do follow Bleach, but it is not my favorite anymore. I just thought that when Ichigo released into his new form a while back, I thought it was really cool... so I drew my interpretation of him. :)

anyway, my top mangas right now are (as in which I find really rolling with the greatness at the moment)

1. One Piece
2. Psyren
3. Reborn
4. D. Gray Man
5. Naruto
6. Fairy Tale
7. Gantz
8. Bleach

I would put Gintama for #4, but I was late to that manga and there is like 10 or so chapters around the 60th chapters that have not been scanned and translated... so I am stuck until that changes! :(

That is all at the moment... I suck at finding more and interesting manga to read. I just finished Rave and I am currently catching up with Berserk and Blade of the Immortal.

Like I have said, I am always looking for new suggestion! :)

btw, call me an idiot... but who is that in your avatar? Is is Hibari? :p

hdiuy
November 09, 2009, 04:56 AM
^ Nice. *high five* we both like One Piece as our #1. Oh and that drawing was really nice.
I'm a sucker when it comes to manga cause i don't really read much mangas. I think mainly its because i can't appreciate humour in manga, so i can't really suggest any manga to you. Well other then Samurai X and death note ,since you didn't mention here so i assume either you finished it or you didn't read it. Flame of Recca too, though i watched the anime instead of reading the manga.

Actually the guy in the avatar is the lead character in Persona 3. You're the 2nd person who said that it looks like Hibari. I first got it from a friend on MSN who said that the character was Hibari.She supposedly got the avatar after she googled Hibari. After looking at it after having it i realised that it wasn't Hibari. It was untill i saw someone with the same character as his avatar then i asked that person who the the character was. And thus that's how i knew it was the lead character from Persona 3. Its kind of ironic huh.

Thank you for the compliments! :D

I spent a long time lurking on this website and then one day decided to partake in the discussions on the Reborn threads and soon after that they modded me for the Reborn section! :)

I make comments here and there on other sections... but Naruto, Bleach and One Piece your comments tend to get lost in the oceans of other comments, so I usually stick to commenting in the smaller mangas (ex. Reborn, Fairy Tale and Psyren)

I like all kinds of music really... but not the extremes of any. If that makes sense. :p

But if I had to choose a genre, it would be Rock. (ex. Muse, BRMC, Queens of the Stone Age... ect.)

Although I am a big Redman and Methodman fan as well... anything hip-hop, not gangsta gangsta. :)

I know the guy in your avatar is the lead in Persona 3 the moment i saw it. I am quite a gamer girl, and i played P3 some time ago :D

I saw your deviantart, Ghost-san. I like your gallery =D

Are you currently working in the creative industry?

P.S. i want to recommend Ouran High Host Club, it is super hilarious. :D You can start with the anime if you want to. The anime is a very good interpretation of the manga. Some of the humour are even funnier in the anime. I will recommend the Japansed dub rather than the English dub though...

I absolutely recommend Claymore and Vagabond =D
Vagabond is too awesome. Claymore has the most beautiful and badass girls ever...

I have currently applied for the JET program (http://www.jetprogramme.org/index.html) this year and I am hoping to get in. Cause I have always wanted to visit/live in Japan and the other Asian countries. It gets boring staying in America... :p

So right now I just do art in my spare time. :)

I only read the introduction of the JET programme, sounds interesting (eventhough i actually don't really know what it is about). Hope you get in, good luck :)

One way to promote your works is... to enter competitions, i guess =D

Osamu Tezuka is amazing. I know some of his works are published in English (i forget the publisher). Buddha by Tezuka is one of the most mind blowing manga i have ever read, most of the mangas i had read pale in comparison to it. (in my opinion)... ok, i think i recommend too many mangas already. :)

November 18, 2009, 06:03 AM
Thank you for your good luck casting! :p

The JET program is a program set up by the Japanese government in which they have countries that are first language English speaking, spend a year or more in Japan teaching English to the Japanese public schools.

It is a way to live abroad for a while and get cultured. :)

I would enter contests.... but I am really lazy and very good at procrastination, unless I have a real motivator going for me. It is something that I am trying to work on...

Well Welcome! Welcome! :)

Life is as good as it can get at the moment... trying to find a job since I got laid off about 2 months. But I am hoping that I can accepted into program that I recently applied for, which will allow me to travel to Japan and teach English. :) Fingers crossed!

Anyway, favorite past time (at the moment) is watching a crap load of movies and trying to get some new art done. I am also in the middle of playing "Assassin's Creed 2". So right now I am just bumming around! :p

I am doing great... just hating this midwestern winter going on here now... :mad and like I mentioned looking for a jorb.

I am actually in the process of finishing a piece that I have been working on for a week now. should be done in the next couple of days. :)

No I did not hear about that side band the lead singer was doing... I will have to check it out! Lately, I have been listening to Goldfrapp and Massive Attack... good stuff to listen too when I am working on art.

But I shouldn't complain. I'm really sorry to hear about your job situation. :( It'll all work out in the end, though, I'm sure. Good luck with your search and your applications to that program in Japan. That sounds like a really cool opportunity!

I am actually in the process of finishing a piece that I have been working on for a week now. should be done in the next couple of days. :)
Sweet! Can't wait to see it. :D

Yeah I have been wanting to do the program for about 5 years... so I finally decided to give it a shot! It is really competitive, so I need all the luck I can get! :)

Ghost im trying to do the same style art you do trying to render gutz 3d but atm he really isnt looking to good, any suggestions?

hrmmm... well there are many answers to your question. There is the always tried and true, just keep practicing.

But I can tell you how I learned to work is go to deviantart.com and look up some tutorials and/or go to Youtube and do the same.

My way of doing art is:

first draw it out, then decide how you want to present the subject happy, sad, angry and so on. By selecting your colors, you are setting the mood. Then you assign flat colors to it. Now what I do for the flat colors is I lay down the dark tones first and then build my way up to the light tones.

There are 3 tones you have to present in your pic, Dark, Mid and light. Check out this link and watch how this artist does it. The tutorial is broken up into 6 vids. I have posted the first and the rest are on the guys account.

Well the first thing that attracted me to them was the art... since I am an artist. But the second thing was finding out that the animes took liberties of editing out certain stuff/character from it, thus making me curious why. Then third, the story had to be interesting... of course!

I love drawing women... but they are also the hardest for me to draw. So more times than I should, I just draw dudes. They are easier cause they don't have curves and pretty faces. :p

I have a (silly) question:

Do you compare drawing with math? Let me explain the comparison: I have always had the feeling never being good in math - how hard I tried. My math teacher always said that everyone can be good in math as long as you try hard and do your best. The same goes for drawing: when I end up drawing, I always end up in drawing vague, abstract figures which are given a meaning by the viewer. I can't end up drawing something nice and concrete.

So can it be taught? or is it a talent inherent to someone?

Very interesting question there...

First let me tell you that I am HORRIBLE at math. Now I don't know if that was because I really never cared for it, thus making it so that I never practiced it. But math is kryptonite to me. :)

I just never got it or was interested in it... so I can not tell you if your practice math you would get better.

Now on to art. There are 2 different artist in the world... those with God given talent to be able to create whatever the heck they want without any kind of proper training or practice. Then there is the ones who are not talented right out the womb.

I like to think of myself as stuck somewhere between these 2 different artist. When I was younger, I was praised for the things I drew and whatnot. As I grew older I found that the praise was not around as much.

Even though I have a BA degree in Commercial Art - Illustration, I don't think I really learned that much in my time in college. The problem lies in the fact that I did not go to one of these expensive art schools that do teach you everything you need to know... I went to a regular college that had a decent art program.

My major should of prepared me for what the illustration world was like today! But it did not... it taught me what the illustration world was like 15 years ago. So digital illustration and graphic design was not taught to me, I would have to learn this stuff on my own outside of college.

So anyway... I went off the topic a bit there. Yes it can be learned... but it has to be taught in the correct ways. Also, with anything out there... there will always be people that are natural born talents in things.

I knew a handful of natural born artist during my time in college. I found that they usually threw away their talents because they are bored with them, they have done it since they were small and it no longer offers a challenge to them. So their talents usually waste away...

Not saying this happens to all of them... just most.

I hope that gave you some insight! :)

I also like House, but I fell behind on watching the show.

btw, I see you are a Gintama fan... I had started reading that manga but then there was a huge chunk of scans that are missing (something like 20 or so chapters) somewhere around the 80th chapter... I think.

I wish I knew! :crying Sadly, it seems as there are still gaps in the scans. Gintama is very episodic, though, so it's not that big of a deal in following the story. I fully realize that, but I'm the type of person that HATES skipping anything, so I haven't read that much of the manga, tbh. I've mostly watched the anime, which is fantastic. Do you watch it?

I am also pumped for Chuck to come back on! It really is a great show... for nerds! :p

ghostexiled
February 07, 2010, 03:40 AM
Reasons to read Reborn... well to be blunt, it starts off really slow and aimlessly with what they call the "Everyday Life" arcs. So at first it started as a comedy but then it slowly starts taking on a more serious action tone. I think it starts to become a interesting manga due to the fact that it is something completely different from your run of the mill shounen.

The personalities of the characters are unique and I don't feel they fall into a stereotypical shounen mold.

It deals with some really strong stuff, like suicide and abandonment and how friendship can allow a person to change for the better.

Besides all that deep stuff, it has some really awesome action scenes later on it the manga. :)

Hands are a pain in the ass... I think they are this way due to the infinite positions that they can be put in. Each finger (in a way) has it's own character, so in a sense it would be like trying to draw 5 different people. :D

I live in Kansas City, Missouri.

How about you, where is it you live?

You live in a very big city while I live in a small semi-rural town called Thomasville, NC (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomasville,_NC), former home to the World's Largest Chair.

If you find a wallet with $100 with no ID and just a card with a phone number. What would you do?
Do you wear contacts or glasses? If not I take it 20/20 vision?
Have any pet peeves?

Well I actually live in a smaller city that is on the skirts of KC, called Independence, MO. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Independence,_mo) But it is about 10 miles from where I live to downtown.

I was actually born in Fayetteville, NC. But since my ex-stepfather was in the military we moved around quite a bit.

Well to be honest, that sounds like some shit that would end up being some plot to a movie like Eagle Eye (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1059786/) or The box. (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0362478/) So, I would just take the money and forget about the number and save my ass some crazy ass troubles. :)

I don't wear any glasses or contacts... but I should. My vision is starting to become near sighted. But at the moment I am jobless and have no insurance to get what I need.

Pet Peeves... being called names in an immature fashion. I don't like my food to mix or touch. People that lie to me and suck at it. "Better than thou" attitudes. People that whistle in public. Uninformed people. People at the movies who can't shut the fuck up or not kick your seat. people who put words in my mouth. People who drives trucks, vans and SUV's during snowstorms cause they think they rule the road and speed and ride your ass.

I could go on... but that would be another one of them, people who complain to much. :p

Was the box movie any good?
Which is better Cameron Diaz in Carlie's Angels or There's Something About Mary?

I've been to Fort Bragg once. It was with my high school band. The theme for our marching band was military, all of us dressed up in camouflage army uniform. (may look for pics if I have any) The music was Marine band songs and I think we had a version on the star spangled banner. We played at an air show where they have the Thunderbirds and other crazy flying stunts. Everyone else was more interested in the real attraction and after the air show they walked straight to the exit, passing by us like we didn't even exist. >.<

February 07, 2010, 04:36 AM
I have yet to see it, I just remember the trailer for it was very similar to your hypothetical question. :)

definitely Cameron from There's something about Mary!!

All I know about the expanded universe is that Luke went to the dark side for a while. The Emporer was cloned. Han Solo and Princess Leia had kids that become Jedis and Luke got together with another Jedi and they had kids as well.

I wiki the shit outta of stuff I am interested in but am too lazy to actually read/see or play. :p

I will. I can poke Aki in the eyes. :D

ghostexiled
February 08, 2010, 12:52 AM
I will quote myself from when Aki asked me about it. :)


Reasons to read Reborn... well to be blunt, it starts off really slow and aimlessly with what they call the "Everyday Life" arcs. So at first it started as a comedy but then it slowly starts taking on a more serious action tone. I think it starts to become a interesting manga due to the fact that it is something completely different from your run of the mill shounen.

The personalities of the characters are unique and I don't feel they fall into a stereotypical shounen mold.

It deals with some really strong stuff, like suicide and abandonment and how friendship can allow a person to change for the better.

Besides all that deep stuff, it has some really awesome action scenes later on it the manga. :)

Awesome! I say poke one eye and splash hot sauce in the other! ;bash

Yo hommie!

Thanks! it is the least I could do for poor ol' Aki. :)

Life is slow going... still searching for a job and trying to keep myself busy in the meantime.

Reborn is a very awesome manga... I like it cause it sticks more closely to reality as much as a Shounen possible can. The fights are awesome and uniqe. Also it does not suffer from the same kinda fate as Bleach and Naruto... not that I am dogging those mangas.

It is just as of late Bleach and Naruto are sorta turning into these hyper power battles not unlike DBZ. Where Reborn is a bit more grounded in awesome action while not suffering from characters having planet destroying powers. :p

Although the current arc has had the battles becoming a little more flashy. It is suffering a bit from the Mangka trying to rush a conclusion to this arc. Cause this arc has been going on for about 2 years now.

But overall, I still really like it.

My list of mangas from best to worst is: One Piece, Psyren, Fairy Tail, Reborn, D. Gray man, Gantz, Naruto and then Bleach.

that list is more like me telling you how interested I am in the current stories.

Bleach was once the best... but the very very very slow pace and almost pointless battle with Aizen the almighty is a little bit annoying. I think it kinda lost it's magic right before the Ichigo and Ulquiorra fight.

However, my interest has been sparked again with this new attack on Aizen... but if it turns out to be an illusion, well I won't be happy. :(

Naruto is close to Bleach due to the fact that the manga should now just be renamed Sasuke. :p


You're right.. You're both pathetic.. :noworry

:p

Name calling will only strengthen you losing to me/us. :D

Consider what Aki and I are doing as War Propaganda.

Yeah, like Zoro could ever reach me. He would even get lost in his bedroom.

He wakes up, looks at the door, walks to feet and then realizes he's in his closet. Or something like that. It's amazing he can even get on the deck of the ship..

You come up with some funny questions, Aki! :p

I would say it is safe to eat if there is no mold on it and it does not smell like a foot.

Lately being jobless, I stay up all night and sleep during the day.

I think it is better to rob the security trucks... like Bill Murray did in Groundhog Day (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XmbURZANDOo)

I couldn't find the actual scene but I am sure you have seen it and know what I am talking about. :)

Without spoiling members... I need to go on record and say how really disappointed I am with Naruto and especially Bleach this week! :mad

I don't think I have ever been this upset over a manga chapter like Bleach... in forever!

As for me, I only have the old Nintendo game systems (e.g. the original one, Gameboy, etc.).

Yeah the best video game memories I have is when I played and beat Final Fantasy 7, 8, 9 and 10. Those were great games... not to sure about this new one though.

Yeah the only great thing about the Wii was Zelda, Mario and Metroid.

What do you think? :blink Who's your favourite OP character btw??

I think that if WB was at full health and not sick and mortally wounded... BB would stand no chance. BB is taking this opportunity to take out WB, like a weasel would. I think that BB will allow most of the the WB crew to leave, but would want to test his power and his new crew members powers out against the top guys on the battlefield.

But I kinda think that BB will attack both sides, just to confirm his place as top dog in the bad guy roster that Luffy will later face.

I also think that he will provoke Luffy into a fight... by insulting Ace or messing with his now deceased body.

Favorite character... Enel and Croc are tied for best baddie. Zorro was at the beginning and it is tied between him and Luffy, since Luffy showed his Gears.

But nobody beats the comedy duo of Luffy and Ussopp. :)

Bugzee
February 16, 2010, 07:17 PM

^Well since now you are my OP buddy... I have to tell you what I think about the new chapter...

I think the really huge dude is using a DF, I just can not see that later on when the SH's vs. BB's crew it would be evenly matched! Unless the SH's pick up a Giant somewhere, I am going to say that dude is using a DF to make him that huge.

Or better yet, SH's don't pick up a giant but Chopper learns to control his giant monster form... then that would be nice.

But the huge guy would still tower over Chopper's monster form...

Bugzee
February 18, 2010, 10:39 AM

I agree. I think that massive dude has a df ability as well...without a doubt! It would be cool if Chopper learns how to control that monster form hehe I think he would have a good chance against that San Juan guy imo. :tem

I did enjoy working for the other department that I worked for part time, the edit department. :)

yes you are correct... but that has never been an issue for me. when I had time off I always stayed up till like 7 in the morning or so. So I am very accustomed to being able to switch my sleep schedule around at a moments notice. :)


What's so great about Bioshock (2) whatever? (I've never played)
well I can't spoil you on the sequel, in case you choose to play the first. I will just let you check out this video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CoYorK3E4aM).

That is a trailer for the first one.

The story is that you are a plane crash survivor and you find this lighthouse out in the middle of the ocean which has a sub that takes you down to an underwater city that was built for people to be able to do whatever they wanted to do, without "Big Brother" getting in your way and telling you what is morally right and what is not. The story takes place during the 40's. When you reach the underwater city, you notice that it seems as if some kinda riot happened and you are also being attacked by deranged people.

It was a very awesome game and a very original FPS. Highly recommended!!


If you had to pick a favorite comedy moment from a movie, what would it be?
hrmmm... one that comes to mind would be Will Ferrell's scene from this movie (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JOz4hVOJm0E&feature=related).
