  1. "You should see me in the groooound...."
  2. The Undertaker: Long Term Story Telling in Wrestling Pretty awesome.
  3. Age also changes your face too. Even when he was on Chuck, there were a couple times he was shirtless and he was not a lanky guy (especially for a tall dude).
  4. Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story Great example of truth is stranger than fiction.
  5. Yes, there was anime before all this (I basically consumed all the cartoons in the late 80s/early 90s), half of them were anime dubs... but I really can't say that it was what exposed me to 'anime' since nobody referred to it like a separate genre from western cartoons. Technically, they do count but my favorite being the Robotech trilogy dubs/edit is vastly different from it's original. My first exposure to anime was Fist of the North Star movie, fansubbed tape my co-worker at Great America gave me. Followed by Record of Lodoss War OVA... he was a bro for sure. (He was also amongst the top Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat player at that time, I worked at the arcades alongside him and a couple others.) Everyone thinks that Cartoon Network was what started the craze but it was really the Silicon Valley PBS station. They made the fantastic mistake of allowing anyone to vote on what they wanted to see so the hardcore anime fans of that time did. They volunteered and went out of their way to spread the love of anime. It came out of the great fansub scene (we're talking about tape trading here, not internet) and anime clubs. Publishers noticed it and started buying up the rights to practically every anime that was 1/2 way decent. The video rental stores' anime section had it's own shelf. We also made Michael Flatley (Lord Of The Dance) internationally famous too... fuck it, we dug the shit out of him back then.
  6. I did not know that, the season felt complete thou so I'm not sure if it was even that detrimental.
  7. This looks like a blast from the past (but updated)
  8. Not to mention Epic doesn't seem to allow 3rd parties to selling digital keys when all the competitors do. This type of exclusivity is not good for the consumers no matter how you look at it. (Not to mention moneyhatting games that were crowdfunding thru the people on other platforms and making it exclusive from said platform... that's just straight up skeevy.) EDIT: Tim Sweeney (Epic founder) two years ago. "The thing that I feel is incredibly important for the future of the industry is that the PC platform remains open, so that any user without any friction can install applications from any developer, and ensure that no company, Microsoft or anybody else, can insert themselves by force as the universal middleman, and force developers to sell through them instead of selling directly to customers.”
  9. A must read, short write-up on the PBS that started the anime craze: http://missmediajunkie.blogspot.com/2018/06/anime-on-pbs.html Between that and the British classic reruns, it was a glorious age to grow up in.
  10. @jaedmc I highly recommend Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress. Same Studio as AoT but they learn much from working on AoT and Iron Fortress is the better for it.
  11. Some quality matches all around, some even Takeover level great. EU = Erectile Undysfunction
  12. Ascendance of a Bookworm Amongst the best webnovel out there is getting any anime! It looks promising, glad they are going the low budget Miyasaki-ish route. The author was as prolific as you can get with 600+ long chapters (that wasn't droning repetitive crud). It's an isekai, I remember first reading it and seeing the fan trashing the MC as being weak and using OP powers. The novel embodies "knowledge is power."
  13. Alita is like that great wrestler who just started out: her moves are fantastic and she executes them well but, in between, her pacing is awkward and there really isn't any flow, she tries but the hitches and hesitations can only be solved by experience... and then she's asked to end the match and she just kinda does without any real setup. TLDR really fun movie, shoulda been a Netflix mini-series.
