>* *< cats rock! They're the most understanding animals ever, will eternally love you if you-and only you-feed it, and have a very deep gaze that sets them higher than other creatures. I personally like cats because most of them like weird smelly seafood just like me. My last cat, who disappeared one night a while ago , was really friendly and had only three working legs; the back left was torn apart by a dog and healed sticking straight out. He was the coolest friend anyone could ever have, and helped me eat all the tuna in the house. A funny thing about them is if you stare at any cat long enough, they'll jump at you no matter what kind of mood they're in. I'll do that for fun to test my reflexes, he hasn't 'gotten me' yet.

I'm listening to Paradigm Shift by Liquid Tension Experiment. Very awesome progressive rock. This was from some videogame and i think its commercial too, please tell if you know.

haven't seen the anime, but I have the latter part of the manga which is great. I love how much humor goes into this story, as dark as it is. Also there are some strange little gaps, like how Seras seems to fill out very much from vol. 4 to 5, which probably wouldn't happen in a matter of hours like it does. The action is awesomely done and so is all the gallons of blood that Kohta Hirano adds while still making the picture clear and detailed. And Anderson is the coolest thing since oversized shades!

here's a recent pic of me with my small but substantial keyboard in back of me.

This is the only good pic that I've been able to get with the camera I'm using, it terribly distorts me whenever I try to smile.

here's pretty much all that's on my photobucket account that I've done, either completely freehand or completely MS paint.

Posted on 03-03-05 09:18 PM, in "Under God" in the Pledge and on money Link
This to me is one of those minute little details that nobody needs to question, but then many people somehow follow it. Even if it wasn't always there, America's founders were of a Christian majority. Their idea was to have a nation which ran on and supported Christianity, but its citizens did not have to practice it. Having under God in our pledge and our coins should be a small reminder for those who might happen to notice it. Modern America (our very worst generations) has done its best to get rid of God from its core and make false theories that eliminate the purpose of religion. The people who want to take God out of our currency and the Pledge are doing nothing but setting America as the first nation to be judged.

Posted on 03-03-05 09:41 PM, in What do you look for in a game? Link
I like games that have a slight learning curve but aren't frustrating, different perspectives and a story that you could never predict.

Metroid Prime
story:you have to play NES metroid to know it well, but still flows well and has some very impressive cut scenes

controls: looks like a Fps, but waay different. I love the setup and the maneuverability you have.

character development:we see glimpses of Samus's style in cut scenes, but no dialogue or strong emotion, which in a way also describes her personality

gameplay:seems slow and unnatural at first, but becomes much more intense. Good job of combining progressing difficulty with the timeline.

Yeah Anderson is that crazy Irish priest, who I'll imitate one day just for kicks. And by filling out, we are talking bust here. It might be that there were less serious drawings of Seras in 4, but it looks like she goes up a letter or two in the 5th volume. I'll scan and post the pics that show this when my scanner's software decides to find itself.

Posted on 03-04-05 07:46 PM, in Sega Saturn, Anyone? Link
I was one of the lucky few to have this system, but I was around 9 at the time and didn't know about/find any anime games for it. I had Sonic Jam, which was a small collection of Sonic games, Virtua Fighter 2 - that could have been a fun game if I played it more often, some cop game that involved shooting, more that I forgot about, and the Independence Day game, which I still think is one of the best random movie games ever. They used actual military planes and prototypes, the gameplay was very smooth and the whole thing had a great setup. I had the arcade style controller, and that was fun since it stayed in one place better. Sadly, mine broke due to unknown reasons (NES style). Very fun system. I think there was also a Lunar game for it.

Posted on 03-04-05 08:03 PM, in Evolution Link
One of the reasons that this theory was further explored and appraised was just to give us the impression that everything on earth is mathematically perfect and that we don't have any significance, which it isn't true at all. There must be a creator for things like language, laws, and numbers to exist, because knowledge cannot grow from just knowledge, there has to be something that makes a plan. Evolution would be like Contra becoming Timesplitters without any outside force. Every game takes a programmer, so why not earth?. We were made to all fit into one giant story, our lives carefully written before we were made. Evolution has to be false once you realize this.

I'm hoping to go to Florida State for aeronautical engineering(airplane and space vehicle design), but I also plan to be creating manga professionally and doing something with my trombone, maybe joining a local civic jazz band. I've always liked making models and understanding how forces affect things, and having a job that takes intelligence would save me from being an average unintelligent guy.

You are Beowulf Cor Leonis

src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v328/Administrator/YouAreBeowulfcopy.jpg">


You are Beowulf Cor Leonis. You are a great artist
and one who is willing to hear what others have
to say. You are a rebel and proud of it as
well. You do not hesitate to reveal what is in
your mind no matter how unusual it may seem to
others.
However, your ideas tend to be too radical and
unpopular to others. As a result of this, you
are a loner since many see you as an outcast.
And why not? Your strong belief of your own
ideas makes others think you are perhaps weird
or just annoying. But never fear, you do not
care what others say. Self satisfaction is all
that you need.

"People and I shared something different, but
I still choose to live by my way of my own
nature..."

"I choose to live for myself. My own body
doesn't mean anything, but my own spirits still
remain the pain I feel for."

Posted on 03-05-05 10:25 PM, in Favorite Anime/Manga Series???? Link
....and yet he manages to spell pwn the right way.

I still think of DBZ as the greatest anime of its time and better than most today, it was focused on lots of action and comedy (much more sensual humor in Japanese form) at the same time. The Gundam series is so huge and always has a different storyline that is always at least good. It also brings forth lots of political views that were more noticed in universal century, in which Char was the more liberal side and the Earth Federation held to their traditions. I didn't pick other but other favorites of mine are Trigun and Hellsing.

well Tamarin, Creation only assumes that a God exists, while evolution assumes that human logic is perfect, that the unseen doesn't exist exept with forces, that hunger of knowledge is the only reason for life, and that natural disasters happen for no apparent reason, always. I still really like my theory better than yours.

Posted on 03-06-05 08:07 AM, in If you could make a law ... Link
hmm, so many things to change but a good law would be to send all minor drug offendors to treatment places instead of prison, which never does any good. My uncle has been in and out of jail for over 20 years for this reason. Another law would be to make a law that requires every religion to separate from others and self support itself for 10 years, just to see which ones would be better off.

Posted on 03-06-05 08:17 AM, in Berserk Link
I'm reading the first part of the manga, it's very intense and graphic, but still cleanly drawn. I like the combat, I'll probably base the action scenes I draw off that style, since there will be lots of halfing people and large weapons. The world portrayed in Berserk is amazing, really really dark and almost no hope for anything. The anime I haven't seen yet, but I'm assuming the manga is better (it usually is).
