@  Cybersnark : (20 May 2019 - 08:52 AM)

So, now that Game of Thrones is over, when can we get back to The Dragon Prince?

@  unluckiness : (20 May 2019 - 12:19 AM)

Like, half of them nowadays are montages of tweet screencaps from the writer's inbox

@  unluckiness : (20 May 2019 - 12:18 AM)

lol you expected integrity from internet news

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:33 PM)

I'm mostly confused how news sites went from "Analysing all the amazingness of Game of Thrones" to "Fans sure don't like this season!", like... way to prioritize clicks over a solid editorial opinion

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:30 PM)

[and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site"] is this like the Toei Quarry?

@  MEDdMI : (19 May 2019 - 11:17 PM)

@Foffy and then that giant lasagna just tipped over and killed everyone, to be later known as the infamous Bad Monday event.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

Ahahaha!!! Go read the reactions for yourself. To say anything more here risks spoiling the finale for subscribing Allsparkers, the quality of this season notwithstanding.

@  Foffy : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

pretty wild how heathcliff was in the game of thrones finale, i was not expecting that crossover

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

were they still super pissed?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

Well, as someone who is not into Game of Thrones, it sure was entertaining to open up social media this evening to unexpectedly see headlines about fan reactions to the finale. Lmao.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:12 PM)

But it's also a SUPER-well known location in my region, so these extensive exterior shots without any post production alterations completely ruin the illusion for me.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:11 PM)

I mean, I get why they did it: It's an existing location that fits the purpose, it's open for the public, and they had to shoot some scenes in my home state anyway to due a subsidizing deal.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:09 PM)

Needless to say, it's not in Berlin, and even what's seen onscreen is waaaaay too modern for something that's supposed to exist in 1929 (even moreso as a derelict site in 1929). The structures seen haven't even been built until the 1960s!

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:07 PM)

I'm currently in the process of watching season 2 of Babylon Berlin, and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site" or whatever it's supposed to be on the show, and I easily recognize it as a place only a few minutes from where I live (it's actually a former ironworks site that's been turned into a public park).

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:52 PM)

Ever since I went to Japan last year, I have friend who dread watching anime with me due to that...

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:51 PM)

Not hugely, but I am the type to notice places once I have been there and say "Hey, I've been there!"

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2019 - 05:50 PM)

Half of new york city (on tape.) is actually montreal.

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 05:50 PM)

I watched Death Wish 5 last night and clearly recognized Toronto streets; didn't pull me out of Bronson's 1-man war on drugs or fashion or whatever it was that pissed him off that time

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 05:49 PM)

it's nice to finally be thought of as exotic by somebody! lol

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:48 PM)

In an "I cannot possibly make my brain ignore the location I'm familiar with and pretend it's whatever the story claims it is" way?

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:42 PM)

Question for those of you living in exotic locations such as the US or the UK: If you watch a movie or a TV show that features a real-life location as a stand-in for someplace else, and you recognize the real-life location due to having been there in person, does that pull you out of the story?

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:15 PM)

Maybe you should have installed macOS in your house instead.

@  Noideaforaname : (19 May 2019 - 04:40 PM)

Nothing like coming home after a long day to find a bird in the house. And then once you sit down for a well-earned rest after leading the bird back outside, you find it had a friend. A friend who *really* doesn't understand how windows work...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 May 2019 - 01:26 PM)

Bingo. The big polls don't tell people what's actually happening because that doesn't sell.

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 AM)

IIRC there are good polls but data is easily manipulated so they give people what they want to hear

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2019 - 10:58 AM)

The only way to get people interested in politics is to make into reality TV. So they lie to do it.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 May 2019 - 01:38 AM)

Yeah, polling these days is garbage.

You know, this election is what has finally broken me of any confidence at any point of pre-polling data. I mean, it's always been sketchy, but this is just... aaaargh!

@  Pennpenn : (18 May 2019 - 06:08 AM)

I was going to make an Auspol election thread in P&R, but the outcome so far has made me feel physically ill.

So uh, here's a thread where you can ask me questions about, well, stuff? 
 
Let's see how bad this ends up turning out!

Edit:Man, you must be weird if you're actually starting to read this thread from the first page. Kind of an odd thing to do, isn't it? Wouldn't it serve you better to just jump in to the last page and check out what's more recent? But hey, I'm not you, so do whatever you want man. Also the chances anyone actually reads this first post ever again is like, actually zero, so that's why I'm blabbering on like this to an imaginary reader. Because why the hell not just spew some bullshit when I'm bored and having nothing to do, right?

Aside from an cooking accident which left me without eyebrows, I have no been on fire for any continuous amount of time. Sorry to disappoint!

 

Hello! My name is Iris!! =) How are you today??

Hello Iris. Aside from feeling sleepy, I am taking it pretty easy right now.

 

Were you one of those people who laughed when you got to the petrified wood section of the museum?

...that's an actual thing in museums? I refuse to believe that is a thing that exists because holy shit does that sound like a waste of space.

 

How did you and Caboose meet?

I met him on here in the giant huge thread that existed in mayhem, before we made our own forum to hang out on.

 

We actually used to not be on super great terms at one point, but that's all behind us now and we're pretty cool with each other.

Oh geez, this is a hard one. In like, the 6+ years I've known you, we actually haven't agreed on all that much completely. Like, we've argued about gundam designs all the time, had multiple debates on Video Games, what we find attractive in both people and character designs,  and our tastes in music are pretty far apart aside from a disdain in modern music. We actually don't agree on a whole lot of things!

 

Off the top of my head, we both enjoyed Gaim a whole lot, think the SBF are pretty cool, that Platinum Games are the hypest game developers and that Symphogear is the best magical girl anime. On the negatives, we think that Valvrave and Age were abominations and that David Cage should really stop making games.

My current Platinum pipe dream is a Shadow the Hedgehog character action game.

 

If you're gonna outsource Sonic games, why not outsource them to GOOD developers?

Play Dark Souls and finish of his backlog of Video Games/Anime!

So I'm not sure why, but I spent a few days trying to figure out a "part-time soldier" joke before realizing your avatar wasn't actually Suzuha.  Where's it from?

Lain from, well, Serial Experiments Lain.

 

I'm a pretty big fan of the artist,Yoshitoshi ABe, art work due to it's super moody coloring and general uneven look to the linework. It also helps that he was partly responseable for two of the best anime I've seen, Texhnolyze and Lain, both of which are easily some of the most well directed shows I know of.

 

 

 

If you're gonna outsource Sonic games, why not outsource them to GOOD developers?

 

Because Sega is run by idiots. At least all the mainline games are still done by Sonic Team, even if Sonic Team's general output of quality is questionable at best.

What do you think of me?

You might be a little bit clingy, and tend to speak before you think, but that's not really all that bad. You're pretty alright overall as far as I'm concerned!

 

Please don't take this in a bad way. I really didn't mean it to be.

 

 

I don't even own Dark Souls so nyeh.

 

Do you know of any absolutely batjive Japanese metal bands besides Maximum the Hormone?

Go buy Dark Souls! It's like twenty bucks at most places!

 

Hmm, batjive Japanese Metal Bands, that's a hard one. First one I can think of is Loudness, but they're more normal metal compared to MtH. You also have the Black Horn, who you may know from Gundam 00 and again, aren't really batjive insane. On a more alternative rock path, you have Ling Tosite Sigure, who's general frenetic and crazy guitar arrangements might be way more up your ally. I'd recommend checking out their album "Inspiration is Dead" to see how you like them, specifically the songs Nakano Kill You and COOL J. White Ash is also a pretty good band to check out, but I have a feeling you wouldn't like them all that much due to not really having a huge amount of metal influence in their work. I've been listening to Mass of The Fermenting Dregs recently myself, and I'd say that they're a pretty damn good Post-hardcore band with some elements of Shoegazing in them, but again, I don't think you'd like them all that much. Their vocals are kinda poppy overall.

 

I hope I was of some help!
