I know you were in a rough patch for a while. How are you doing?

Thanks for the fave, man!

Why thanks for boarding the Crazy Train! :pinkiecrazy: I do hope you enjoy your stay, friend~

At the time I was a MASSIVE weeb so I loved it for just being Japanese. But then, I also liked the homoerotic overtones clear in the narrative, plus the artwork was acceptable, leaning towards great. It wasn't Miyazaki but what is? It's safe to say I started a fan and stayed one, though it's been a while since I watched the whole thing. I started watching the subbed episodes of the CG reboot. Now they did a gender flip of Mei as I said but that is oddly authentic. In the original books Mei was written as gender indeterminate using non-gendered references, and fans sort of got to think what they wanted. Because the stories read as crazy romantic they all just assumed Mei was female; the author later stated Mei was intended to be male and was given a concrete gender in the movie. But, the series changed that to the initial fan impression and... honestly not much changed. The story beats and emotions (when the show took segments of the movie) are exactly the same, crazy romantic.

I am slightly claustrophobic but more to the point I am comfortable in a space that allows motion but greatly fear being wedged somewhere.

All those things I suggested are good, to me. Your mileage may vary. Sherlock Yack is available on YouTube and is reasonably complete as far as I know. Loulou is on Netflix under the surprisingly proper English title "Wolfy: the incredible secret" but I only got U as a Christmas gift and in French, so I've been machine-translating it with Google.

I'm no time period partisan either. I'll watch anything I consider good and not care when or where it's from. I mean, I love Zootopia, and Kung Fu Panda. And I still want to see Sing.

The music stuff is pretty much all agreeable to me.

2414528 What did you think of "Arashi no yoru ni", once you first saw it?


So, would it be fair to say that you're claustrophobic, then?


Since you suggested the books and animated series Sherlock Yack, and the works of Gregoire Solotareff, especially the book "U" and the movie "Loulou, l'incroyable secret", I ask you: how are they? Are they any good?


I'm guessing you wouldn't be fond of most movies made today (not the least of which would include the 2016 version of Ghostbusters) then, huh?

I'll see your Brian Setzer, the Cherry Poppin' Daddies and the Squirrel Nut Zippers and raise you the likes of Count Basie, Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington and of course, Cab Calloway.


I've also grown to appreciate 1980s-era Heavy Metal bands like Def Leppard, Poison and Motley Crue among others. Although, I've also expanded to music from around the world (namely music from the Middle-East).



Now about this statement: "I watch a lot of stuff on YT, like GMM, and then a vast assortment of movie reviewers, mostly of cartoons or super bad movies. Toongrin, Squirrel Talk Reviews, Bobsheaux, The Cinema Snob, Phelous, The Media Hunter, Hunter the pony, IHE, TheMysteriousMrEnter, AVGN and then overlap with my atheism in the form of The Bible Reloaded and God Awful Movies. With that I also watch full episodes and clips of the Atheist Experience, and listen to talks by Hiith, Cosmic Skeptic, Aron Ra and occasionally Matt Dillahunty."

As I've said, In addition to watching (and listening to) Let's Play vids on the Internet as well as people like Fritz Imperial,

The Distributist and others like

Blaire White,

Theryn Meyer

Dr. Jordan B. Peterson,

Lauren Southern of Rebel Media.

On top of that, I also listen to people on YouTube who have the same political leanings that you have like Prince Of Queens and Tree Of Logic.

To say nothing of others like TriggerTots McGee and Dr.Layman.


As for this statement, here: "I can guess what some of that stuff is, especially as you unironically mentioned politically correct culture as something to be opposed. So, I think you may have missed all the posts of mine about Social Democracy and Euro-leftism. But that happens. Actually you can read my socialism in a lot of the things I write. Heck, anything marked "Etiamsi Omnes Ego Non" is explicitly anti-fascist and anti-misogyny, increasing in passion and strident with the rise of the alt-right, incels and the creeping spread of misogynists in places like, well, various fandoms."

Yeah... no comment. Actually, scratch that. I've a lot to say regarding this entire statement. But, for the sake of not wanting to get in a heated debate in a comment section, I'll say that while I get where you may be coming from, some of what you've been saying gives me pause (if your answers and previous-to recent blog posts are anything to go by).



I have a feeling we may have to have this conversation through personal messages.

It's late and a bit understated but it's a fact. I'm kind of low-key anyhow, as is probably apparent.

I hope you all have a great day!
