Incidentally, I have been keeping busy running a public-domain movie group. We watch things like this. I can leave updatees here for when movie viewings in a room at sync-video.com are on the way, so if that intersts you, follow this thread!
My whole review on Letterboxd: "The movie with the scene in which a bunch of kids, Ronald McDonald, and a bear suit-wearing alien whose eyes look as if they're about to escape his head have a dance-off in a McDonald's as cheesy hip-hop plays. Unintentionally hilarious at times, but aggravating in its insistence of making any given McDonald's out to be the best place ever and in depicting a stupid bug-eyed alien puppet to be some sort of messianic figure. About as healthy as any given meal served at McDonald's."
No, problem, man. Data's getting a foothold in life, whereas this is what passes for my life. If you'd like to join the [suffering] group, just send me a hello on Discord and keep up with this thread. Ask me for my info if you need it.
Starting to really enjoy looking into the tracker music scene, so double feature because why not? This one was composed by the fellow who went on to make music for Hitman and Assassin's Creed, and this one was composed by the fellow who went on to compose for the Unreal and Unreal Tournament series.
One of the best movies I've ever seen is "Brazil." From the mind of Terry Gilliam of the Monty Python troupe, this Blade Runner-esque sci-fi retro-noir features an astounding setting, quirky humor, and one of the most thematically rich film experiences one can have, as an accountant considers his role in a buraecratic society. It's also on more of the Top Ten lists made by prominent filmmakers on Criterion's website than "Citizen Kane" oir any of Kubrick's works, so that should say something.
Saw "Pi," the debut film of the famed Darren Aronofsky, last night. Fascinating, disorientating, and thrilling. Also may have a Low 2-C entity with Omnipresence and manipulation of Mathematics, Vectors, Reality, Fate, Order, and Chaos. So that's cool, too. If a film about a man trying to unravel the secrets of the universe via mathematical theory interests you, check it out and help me spread the word by fact-checking me if I decide to make a profile.
Do check out "Pi" if you're up for some good old-fashioned surrealism. I'm not sure if I can make profiles for it, though; see the movie and you may understand. As for a movie I'm sure I could make profiles for, "Dark City" is a sci-fi noir that inspired the Matrix, and it has Tier 7-ish guys who can manipulate matter, space, minds, and more. Roger Ebert, the most influencial film critic probably ever, gave it a perfect score. And speaking of good scores...
I am always stunned by a viewing of "Angel's Egg," an experimental expressionistic effort collaborated by the director of the original "Ghost in the Shell" movie and the artist/creator of "Vampire Hunter D." The film, which I posit is a masterwork of vast proportions, is available on YouTube for free viewing if you'd like some gorgeous surrealism laced with religious symbolism.
Speaking of hypnotizing, I recently viewed Serial Experiments Lain. Really one-of-a-kind anime. I'll not pretend to understand it fully yet, but I have a feeling it's like "Mulholland Drive," in that it isn't designed to make complete sense on a first viewing, but the craftmanship is so elite and the emotion so elevated that it makes a first viewing enjoyable and repeat ones something to look forward to. Highly recommended for you fans of surrealist work. SEL is up there with MST3K, Twin Peaks, and Mr. Robot as one of my favorite shows now.
Going to take a break. My schedule's going to get busy with summer ending. I don't much like hearing about all these unfortuneate developments, anyhow; I hang around here for the company, and I can't do that if I have to worry about the company being up to some mischief, can I? So let's end this thread with my favorite song from my favorite band, the Electric Light Orchestra. I used to think their music was somewhat cheesy, but it has grown on me, and I think they may have the best lyrics of any band I can think of.
Anyway, I hope you enjoyed this music thread and got to learn about new things! I aim to enhance appreciation of art and encourage the building of character. I have enough avenues to cover without worring about things here, but maybe I'll change my mind and be back in three days, who knows. Good luck to you good fellows out there!
Well, I joined the server for Sardonicast a while back, and while things are pretty mem-y and toxic there, many good folks were there, too, so we have our own server where we talk movies. It's been pretty hectic, though. I really feel for Antvasima, running this place and all.
If you're online atm, I'd love to go to chat. No worries if you get this later; I'll be back tomorrow having rested from my three hours of picking plums off my fallen fruit tree. Been having bad weather, messes with my internet, too. But good to be alive and not an alien doppelganer why would you think that ha ha ha!
Out. Vaporwave is a most bizarre genre that has piqued my interest as of late. Take an original song, do some heavy editing; get a new song! One of the genre's leading artists is t e l e p a t h. Not "telepath," mind you. Big difference. Most music by t e l e p a t h is ethereal and relaxing in nature. Great studying music.
He's a somewhat famous science fiction author. He is well known for writing philosophical books, often from his own, optimistic but materialist perspective, and inspired many concepts such as the laws of robotics.
Man, I never update this thread. I could use this to update my movie chat invites, though. But I feel that so much time has passed that it might be best to start a new one instead of keeping this one going.
That sounds good to me! However, I've been waiting to take some feats to the calc request board; as far as aliens are concerned, Vortigaunts have some concrete wall-shattering feats that might be in the 9-A range if violent fragmentation is taken into account. Would it be cool if we got that out of the way first?
Prolly not gonna be back for at least a few weeks due to schoolwork and yet more RL misfortunes. I will try to return with some goodies, such as DW7 screenshots, calc requests/upgrades for Half-Life, and some Doctor Who-related things. I'll also wait 'till then to make my Turrican profile. Take it easy in the meantime, dudes!
Sorry for dashing out of chat, Data! That was horribly rude of me. I was just going to post the Offline notice here when I heard you were going to chat. I was running out of time and my attempt to stall for more failed. Again, sorry for the inconvenience!
Online. Here's a track for Gargoyle One! Despite owning most of the Ace Combat games and even some spin-offs such as Sky Crawlers (with reversible alternate cover!), I don't think I've played them save for AC4. Gonna have to fix that soon... Oh, and the theme "Romance" from one of the Fate titles sounds a lot like this, but I couldn't figure out which one.
No worries, Data! And stick around for today's closer track, which will be the longest one featured on the show so far.
Online. I've decided to play thorugh the Mana series, starting with Secret of Mana rather than the original Game Boy Seiken Densetsu title, since there was a remake for that recently. I plan to make profiles for Seiken Densetsu 3 after finding out what all the fuss is about. I might make reviews for the games since there's a lot of good qualities I'm noticing in SoM that don't get a lot of recognition. Oh, and here's today's opening song, of course!
I met a future version of myself who sold me some lighter fluid! He said he had to sell it to me for $50000 instead of giving it to me because some jerk ripped him off in the past by selling him something useless for $50000.
Also, this thread is getting long, so let's make a new one!
Not that great, I'm afraid. Feeling the repercussions of a death in the family. But it means a lot that you stopped by to ask! Thank you!
On a formal note, I don't think I'll be able to be online for any extended period of time for a while, but I typed up those DMC low tier revisions. I could make the thread now; I don't want to be an inconvenience by taking forever.
Hey freeman sorry to bother you but I have a question,I'm adding up some of the missing abilities we missed and in the manga it was said sparda could take away names of demons I was wondering what ability would that fall under
