  1. ^That's so strange, as in, my dad loved to tunelessly hum to like alt rock (he was a baby boomer freak, born 1951, so it was great that he actually loved a lot of the stuff that my sis and I grew up with XD). The Police were great. Lots of songs that were both played, and not played on the radio :3 Fantastic band.
  2. I need to sneak in and look at what people have been posting (from what I see, some goodies) I just felt like sharing this. Watched Sleazy Rider (Easy Rider) not too long ago, and having lost my dad a few months ago, when I hear this song I think of him. Dad loved Kris Krisofferson. And Dennis Hopper XD
  3. Finished replaying Legend of Mana and saw that Salt and Sanctuary got a sequel... So now I'm gleefully suffering through Salt and Sacrifice. It's enjoyable thus far :3
  4. I saw that Redbone song on the previous page, and it made me want to hear some Jim Pepper XD Also, I LOVE this band XD Annnnnnnd probably my favorite band of all time right now (no, they don't supplant The Beatles, but they're amazing XD)
  5. Mom got my ears pierced the first time when I was fairly young. I think I wanted them really bad, probably because I wanted to do everything my sister did and rarely got to XD Got my lobes pierced in both ears again in High School to support one of my friends who was a bit timid to get them, but really wanted 'em. I like the way they look. Had the cartilage pierced in college, but to be honest, it kept getting infected and I got fed up and let them heal. I have one tattoo, and it has meaning to me. It is just the character for "dragon" (yes, I know it was the right Kanji), colored blue. I chose a Kanji because I was studying Japanese and had been a fan of anime and interested in the culture anyway for years. I chose "dragon" because I've always been a fan of fantasy (especially dragons), and blue for my favorite colors. If ya couldn't tell by my pseudonym, I like blue dragons XD I got this when I was...19? Maybe 20. I was in college. I do not regret it at 38 (I also take care of it, and have it on my shoulder where it wouldn't interfere with my jobs). It still looks pretty good The Red Green Show was funny! XD I was so glad PBS aired that show XD Can't say I watched every episode, but it was always good for a laugh.
  6. XD Lol, wow. I did not realize there was a limit to reactions here XD I don't dip in a lot, so I was trying to get caught up on the music thread and uh...yeah got told I reached my reaction limit XD LOL. Guess I'll have to finish another time XD My contributions: Warning, flashing lights: Not sure if I picked this song up here, Discord, or as a suggestion from Youtube, but I dig it.
  7. Some of these are gonna be a bit dated, since I haven't been able to get to a library lately 1. Full Metal Alchemist 2. Sailor Moon 3. Rg Veda 4. Magic Knight Rayearth (both series) 5. Saiyuki (all series, though I need to read Gunlock) 6. Flipside (this is by a dude in the US, but it's in the manga style. It's also a web comic, but he prints it and I buy it every time) 7. Shirahime-syo 8. Revolutionary Girl Utena 9. Van Von Hunter (another US based manga. I am sad they stopped writing this Still hold up XD) 10. Inu Yasha There's a lot of CLAMP on this list XD I loved XXXHolic, too, but I never got to finish it
  8. For Christmas Mom got me a copy of First Person Singular, so I'm over halfway through it. Pretty good. I can't say I like it more than After Dark or The Elephant Vanishes (both of the short story books are really frickin' good), but it's got me thinking about memory and stuff like that.
  9. Did you end up watching it? I started it a while back, but by the time the pandemic hit full force, having known where things were going, I got a little too depressed to finish it XD I want to go back, because honestly the episodes I saw were good. I went into the show thinking it was going to be a crappy cash grab, but it was actually well thought out and I wanted to finish it (just didn't have it in me at the time). Sorry for like...the stupidly delayed response. 2021 was a very...very bad year at our place (not getting into it, but lots of trips to the hospital, which was a place we wanted to avoid D:)
  10. Me, too! I loved it when I was young! I remember searching for a hard copy of it for a long time, and finally finding it at like a Game Stop in a neon green VHS case XD Then finally it came out on DVD. I was stoked :3 There was so much thought put into the world, right down to the music! It's impressive how large of a world was created Such amazing work, and all hand made.
  11. Juggling a couple books (I need to free up some time D:) The Drawing Lesson, Mark Crilley (it's mostly basics, but I love this dude's tutorials and support him whenever I can. It's a cute book. Would be good for beginner artists) What the Hell Did I Just Read?, David Wong (Sequel to John Dies at the End) The Metamorphosis and other Stories, Franz Kafka (this is a re-read...and I am slowly plodding through)
  12. Childhood Nostalgia (man, Ohayotaku hit a lot of my favs XD) The Hobbit/The Return of the King (Rankin & Bass) The Lord of the Rings (Bakshi) The Never Ending Story Flight of Dragons Faeries (this is incredibly hard to find, it's based on Brian Froud/Alan Lee/David Day--I think Day helped--book) Wind in the Willows (animated) Labyrinth The Dark Crystal Teens: Up in Smoke Wizards Hair Rocky Horror Picture Show (before everyone in college over watched it) Easy Rider Vampire Hunter D (both films) Darkside Blues Dark City Ninja Scroll Clerks (well, most of the Jay & Silent Bob, but Clerks in particular) LOTR Trilogy
  13. Re-watched Crimson Peak for Halloween and They Live (wow, does that hit differently since 2020). Dune was pretty good. The film makers at least took the film seriously, and it wasn't filled with a bunch of jokes (I am still scarred from Star Wars. The whole franchise has just been ruined for me, which kinda p*sses me off since I was so fond of it as a kid). A few diversions from the book, but I mean, it's a massive book so that' to be expected. Overall, I enjoyed it. I hope Part 2 pulls through. It would be nice to see at least the first three books made into films (spoilers) It was also nice my partner's coworkers chipped in to rent the 30 seat theater, and only 10 people showed up. So we only had to pay $10 apiece for tickets, and were no where near anyone else in the theater, which I was paranoid about.
  14. I personally wouldn't be offended. Everyone has stuff they're into. I have friends who absolutely love Big Bang Theory and sitcoms...but I personally am not a fan of most sitcoms. So...I guess I view it, we all have our own taste. I'd hate for them to be offended because I don't like sitcoms XD But I will say, most of the people I've personally known who say they don't like anime have a very limited scope of what anime is. I've found with my friends who enjoy animation, if I find something that fits into a genre of shows they like, they'll usually end up liking it, and realizing that anime is not just Pokemon and Dragon Ball Z (not a slant to those shows, but a lot of my generation things that all anime is what they saw on toonami XD). My partner used to say he didn't like anime. But his experience of anime was very...limited XD So I found some shows he'd probably like based on what anime he was willing to watch (Cowboy Bebop, Champloo...basically Watanabe shows XD). I find, usually if someone is judging an entire industry, it's because their experience with said industry is not very deep. Now he'll watch like Space Dandy, JoJo's, FMA, and Paprika, and other kinda strangely skewed animes XD I figured out his taste and what he likes in shows :3 Buuuuut that said, some people just don't like animation. And that's fine.
  15. Got this from a cookbook I use (I love it when cookbooks include music suggestions XD) Heard this on the local jazz station the other day This was either on Reddit or suggested in Youtube
