  1. Hi All, Long time no see! I don't really know how well my subtitles project for the fx and official DYRL DVDs have held up over the years. Perhaps there's newer and better ones available nowadays. But, on the off-chance that some still remember those projects fondly and want to incorporate those subtitles onto their 2016 official Blu-ray release of Macross: Do You Remember Love, I humbly offer a ZIP file containing an SRT file and a ASS (heh) file below. A lot has changed in the fifteen years since I first grafted subtitles onto those DVDs. Most especially, I no longer feel the n
  2. Sorry to necro this thread. But has anyone retimed these subtitles to the blu-ray release? I just ordered a (assumed legit) copy of the blu-ray standard edition form CDJapan. Was wondering if someone had already done the drudgery of retiming things and might have made the subtitle files available for remastering a subtitled blu-ray. Or, dare I ask? Are there now better subtitles available beyond my meager efforts above? Has anyone improved upon them over the years? ;) --H
  3. Hi All, Sorry if this is old news (rudimentary MWF search didn't show anything). . . A youtube video of a scratch-built radio-controlled VF-1 Valkyrie (two of them, actually) actually flying. . . Raw footage
  4. Hi All, My very first Yamato 1/48 recently fell in the bathtub and broke his hip. Or something. . . =) Anyways, if anyone has any spare parts, please let me know. Best Regards, Hurin
  5. Not sure if anyone has ever posted about this before. But Nike allows you to customize the colors on the classic Air Jordan (1st Edition) design. On my only trip to Japan several years ago, I stumbled across some of these in Roy Focker's yellow, white, and black. . . and it even had a valkrie silhouette on the back of the heel. I've always regretted not getting them. At least now I can get these (when the wife is convinced. . .). Anyways. . . you can even make a poster. . .
  6. I thought the same thing since I posted even before DT. But rather than point it out, I decided not to give a sh!t.
  7. Incidentally, those who enjoy the redlettermedia.com reviews of the prequels should probably find a way to download them locally. Disney may not have quick so lax a policy towards such extensive use of film footage that they now own.
  8. Can only be a good thing. I mean, how much worse can you get than Jar Jar and the latest Indy movie? Ironically, it could be Disney that rescues them and returns them to their teenage/young adult-oriented roots. But even if episode 7 stinks, we'll at least get a Plinkett review out of it.
  9. Ah well, that skin I scraped together had a good run! Glad to see MW still going strong. Congrats on the successful IPB upgrade Shawn! The new version seems really robust/versatile. I haven't had reason to run an IPB site for a year or two. But seeing this, I may just find a reason. --H
  10. Well, that could be it. But the current admin may want to check the back-end settings. This is possibly something that can be fixed on the MW side of things. A few years ago (during my tenure as admin), we were having trouble sending to a lot of "free email" services. The problem was that a lot of those services were very picky about the header structure of the emails and rejected the way IPB structures its emails by default. The solution was to add a custom header in the forum email settings (this is something done forum-wide by the admin, not by users themselves). If I recall, the code
  11. $.99 No reserve. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=190503934453
  12. yes. it can be turned off. It's one of the first settings I disable on any new IPB install.
  13. Ridiculous. $400 and its knees don't even bend.
  14. Being the guy who created that logo. . . I'm actually sorta touched that someone liked it enough to steal it. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, etc. =) BTW, that (highly filtered) kite emblem is actually from a picture of the T-shirt they gave away with Robotech Battlecry for the XBox. =)
  15. It should probably be pointed out though that the Japanese soundtrack is very sucky on the ADV release compared to the Animeigo one. The ADV original Japanese track is much less vibrant and quite a bit quieter (and therefore is more distorted and has more hiss because you have to crank it up). The audio track on the Animeigo release is very clean, loud, and vibrant. The dub on Hulu, if anything, will hopefully convince folks to go with the subtitles, and hunt down the Animeigo release.
  16. Christian appearing isn't really a problem. Since he did that even in the accepted "real" timeline (he appears to Jack in the hospital). Unless you want to dimiss that as Jack being drug addled (though we haven't done that with anything else and it would seem that, well, spirits do appear). So, I don't feel like we need to explain Christian in the church any more than we needed to explain him as he appears to Jack other times. I'm really not concerned with the age of Mile's father. Maybe he's just got good genes! Or maybe the writers forgot to put him in makeup. All I'm saying is that t
  17. I think there's a lot of evidence for the ALT timeline being "real" (and not just a spiritual/afterlife realm). After all, the whole point of the last few episodes of last season was the explicit attempt to create a timeline where the plane didn't crash. Then you have Juliette's "it worked" transmitted by Miles. The very next scene (in the next season) is Flight 815 flying over a sunken island. Then throw in Desmond and his demonstrated ability to travel between multiple timelines. His first journey took place when he pressed the emergency button in the hatch, and came into contact with F
  18. Yah, as soon as he did it, both me and my wife said at once: "he's dead." It so obvious you have to assume they're going to throw us a curve. Though, they could throw us the curve by not throwing us the curve.
  19. So, the theory is that Jacob was bringing these folks to the island in an effort to rehabilitate his brother? Think about it, Smokey has almost no frame of reference for humanity. All he know is what his mother told him about how evil they are. . . along with the small community he lived with for a while before mom killed them all. And, if you'll recall, he hated those people. Though that begs the question, why does Jacob take the side of humanity being decent? He had even less interaction with people than Smokey. You'd think he'd be even more of a believer in his mom's warning about how
  20. So. . . some have been hinting about it. . . Yeah, I guess that "mom" had made the mistake of going into the cave of light herself and was able to become a "smoke monster" too. . . hence her ability to wipe out an entire village by herself? So, if that's true, was she evil too? Did it make her evil or does it only intensify whatever is in your nature already (if indeed it alters your soul at all)? Can you get turned into a smoke monster and still be a good guardian of the light (as she apparently was)?
  21. Gotta agree. When they've shown us Smokey killing people in the past, he's usually shown to beat them to a pulp or literally tearing them limb from limb. The fact that they only show us Richard being taken off screen probably means something. Though, I'm not saying that he can't kill Richard. I'm just saying that he probably didn't in this case.
  22. I actually wonder how much they intend to explain. They might throw us a few bones and "aha!" moments. But at this point, I don't really think they need to in order to finish the story. They might just wrap up what happens and just leave us guessing as to the whys of everything. I wonder if they'll somehow rehabilitate Smokey. Like, maybe put him in Ben's body as fully human. . . so he won't be such a threat should he escape the island. And then maybe he also won't be such an a-hole. Edit: I realize this isn't news, and that we were told that not everything would be answered. But a
  23. I think so. Not sure. That was so long ago. Guess it would be safe to assume that's MIB. Yet, I can't even remember at this point if Smokey can take the form of anyone who has died, or if their body actually has to be nearby (hence the need to bring Locke's body back to the island). Could have sworn that it was explicitly stated that the body had to be nearby. . . yet we've seen MIB impersonate Richard's wife (whose body isn't on the island). Also, and this is may be just my own odd theory, I think that Ben childhood flashback episode took place prior to the whole time-travel angle being
