Hey guys, I made the news!!! Sorry to create a throw-away topic like this, but well.... I was excited... I was never on the news... well for anything good that is... LoL

http://wnep.com/2012/04/27/electric-city-tattoo-convention/

I had to work a convention yesterday and they interviewed me and used a segment of it to kick off the broad-cast.... and holy-heck do I look bad-LoL.... still fun for me none-the-less

Ok, and so that ends the pointless throw-away post. You can all ignore this now.

Mondo thanks for the advice Aeolus!! You actually made things easier because HSotD is one of the shorter series on my list and what I was initially inclined to check out first anyhow, so I will actually do that one first before moving on the magical girl stuff...

Berserk vs. Slayers vs. Magic Knight Rayearth eh..... that is a tough one.....  I would say Magic Knight Rayearth is definately the weakest of the three but if you dig nineties fantasy anime as much as I do you'll love it all the same :)..... Berserk is one of my favorite series of all time, though as Aeolus said, waiting for another installment of the manga is rough.... luckily playing catch up takes a little bit if you pace yourself seeing as how there are like 20 volumes of manga beyond the covered story arc of the series.... Berserk also sports some of the most shocking twists and turns in a fantasy anime plot I've ever witnessed, as well some of my all-time favorite characters and battles, so I suppose I'm highly partial to berserk.... Slayers is great, don't get me wrong, I've watched all but the very last season and have enjoyed all of it, but its just no Berserk to me... no sir...

My final word on the matter is this... if you want something more lighthearted and traditionally "anime", go Slayers.... if you want something that is gonna really grab you, take you for a more serious  adventure and are in the mood for something darker and deeper go Berserk. Either way watch both Berserk and at least the first 3 Seasons of slayers and then at the end of it, don't forget MKR

As for dougram and dancouger..... I got nothing.... not familiar I'm afraid

I'm looking to acquire/expand on my image library of high resolution anime and RPG illustration and graphics.... I love collecting wallpapers, sprite graphics, original game illustration et cetera..... Particularly the wallpapers because the resolution is usually good enough for me to make poster prints for my house and tattoo room.... and so I was wondering if you guys had any decent resource suggestions for the aquisition of such. I have naturally already done google searches for "rpg walls" and "anime wallpaper" and the like and browsed a number of sites but there are A LOT of them. So do you guys have any go-to places for this type of stuff?

Well I haven't had an erection in almost 3 years now

A) Too much info, B) maybe you should see a doctor about that, and C) perhaps your ailment is being afflicted by the very thing you're defending.



E:F;B!

I unfortunately I have to see doctors far too often and they are well aware of my condition... or more accurately a side effect of how  hormonally retarded I am as a result of my condition.... I was diagnosed with, when hospitalized for a week a ways back..... ready for this one.... "Non-renal metabolic alkalosis, with a standard anion gap hypothyroidism, indicating failure and malabsorption".... long story short, most foods are like poison to me, my diet is limitted as hell, I can't get it up, I lost like 60 pounds, and my central nervous system occasionally feels like there is a cannon being shot through it...... all that aside, the worst part is I have to take a loop diuretic in dosages twice that of my 87 year old grandmother or I swell up like an italian sausage to the point where I experience pulmonary edema..... I have to see two seperate sets of doctors because the ones in my area are only competent enough to take my bloodwork every few weeks, while the others I correspond with are specialists a state away.... They claim that ultimately what has really occured is not hypothyoidism per se' but more or less my thyroid "shut off" and most of its functions in regard to digestion had been assumed by my hypothallamus.

..... now given all that, you can see that erections really are the least of my troubles.... quite honestly I've found my complete lack of sex-drive to be awesome.... you have any idea how much money I've saved without having a girlfriend for the last 3 years? or how much time I've been able to devote to my career and gaming? in other words, the way I see it now, the loss of my ladibo has been the only bonus is this mess...

...let this be a lesson to all the kiddies reading this by the way... take care of your body.... don't abuse the hell out of your body when your young and you won't feel like your 26 with your 65th birthday on the horizon....

But that is enough of that, back on course, the topic is not "Klyde's Pickle" and I don't mean to turn it into such :)

Strikes my fancy indeed.... in fact it put me over the edge, I think now is finally the time for me to get an x-box....Initially I thought that Tales of Vesperia was the only undeniable appeal of the system for me.... after hearing about this and few others on the Live network I think I'm sold

Klyde: Kamitani (founder of Vanillaware) worked on the old side-scrolling D&D games from the 1990s.  This game is supposed to be similar in style.

Wow, no kidding.... I don't know my ass from my elbows when it comes to much outside the realm of your JRPG.... particularly anything that has to do with company lineage.... now, given that is the case, I'm even more impressed with Odin Sphere whose visual style ranks amongst my favorites in recent history. The illustrations for that game actually help motivate me to get to work on the days when drawing does in fact feel like work to me.... I wish someone would come to me for an odin sphere tattoo.... I think I would do it for next to free just to get to do it....

I have always watched anime via a "research and then purchase" order of operation... thus I was not exposed to alot of stuff that made it to cable television.... cowboy bebop was one series I actually never saw believe it or not.... I know nothing about it... and while its on my "to get to" list, there are a number of titles before that one....

As for the time being I'm now watching Utawarerumono (I wonder if I spelled that right......) and though I almost gave up after a few episodes and wrote it off, I'm glad I didn't. I'm about 11 eps in and really digging this at the moment. Great one as far the fantasy stuff is concerned.

I'm also rewatching Sailor Moon-LoL! I'm also 11 eps in on that as of today and not really digging it.... the appeal of this one is purely nostalgic to me as it was the first anime I was ever exposed to.... Never did watch past season 2 though, so I guess I've got something to look forward to... then again maybe I don't.....

On deck I have Saiyuki, High School of the Dead, Clannad, Murder Princess, Gai Rei Zero, Eureka 7, Revolutionary Girl Utena and Magical Girl Lyrica......something or other.... full title escapes me at the moment..... anyhow, any suggestions as to what to dig into next out of that bunch?

I'm a big supporter of Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha. (I've recommended the show to some girls and guys and up to now everyone loved it)
The biggest problem with starting to watch it used to be the terrible and lolitastic season 1... but not anymore!

For maximum enjoyment I'd say watch "Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha - The Movie 1st" which is the improved movie version of the first season.
After that "Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha A's".
If you liked it and want to see more of the characters then check out "Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha  - Strikers", but be warned that season 3 is pretty average.

Thanks for the advice my friend! Figuring out where to start with some of these series is the hardest part :) I'm going heed your words and start my magical girl adventure tonite! hahaha... that sounded dirty

Watched Thermae Romae a few days ago, short but man it cracked me up! Currently watching Desert Punk and I love it, just the right amount of humor and dark humor for my tastes.

Though I'm not one for humor much, desert punk was one I wanted to check out too and I like your tastes Bytor.... think that one is going on the list now too...

Well I haven't had an erection in almost 3 years now, so it certainly isn't about the sex appeal for me.... I am a huge fan of all this crap but NEVER would I EVER claim it is meaningful, or anything beyond fanservice for that matter.... I do adore these games for very shallow reasons and that I will gladly admit. It is bright, bubbly and makes me happy in a nostalgic way that reminds of being a kid again I guess... Its hard to express really, but its all about the visual aesthetic of it all for me.... Maybe... Okay surely, I'm just weird.... but come on, there has to be some other folk out there that just happen to like the stuff because it oozes some of the most beautiful, albeit cliche and over done, anime-esque graphic to grace console gaming..... Even as big of a fan as I am though (and I am a freakin' ridiculous fan of these admittingly poor titles), once again, to claim they've got any type of appeal beyond that is sort of absurd I suppose.... I feel like fans create a worse stigma for this stuff than the actually games, products or bonus material itself....

I really had vanillaware pegged for having a keen sense of aesthetics.... taking that into account I don't know how to really judge the presentation here.... on one hand I hate it, despite being well done.... on the other-hand, intended or not, I think its hilarious how this looks to be a complete satire of western comic/D&D illustration which I abhore.... I know saying I have a distaste for your Boris and Frazetta styled illustration being a tattoo artist here in the states is borderline-sacreligious but I can't help my personal taste.... it is what it is.... I don't know whether to laugh or cry as a result of the illustrations for this title

When I read what was to come with the LE Agarest Wars 2 this coming summer I couldn't believe it.....

http://www.siliconera.com/2012/04/21/record-of-agarest-war-2-limited-edition-includes-blow-up-doll-wait-a-second/

That is right.... a blow up doll and compress towel to compliment your art book.... they have officially beat their well endowed mousepad of yesteryear if you ask me.... this is just too cool

Between this and the LE Atelier from NIS with "Barrel!" T-Shirt, I must say I'm quite excited at the prospect of how many levels the decor in my living room is going to gain in the coming months :)
