  1. It's not like if Gubaba would want to watch ep 3 & 4 together. It's more like if he could possibly watch the end of the 3rd and not want to go into the 4th RIGHT FRAKKING AWAY. Seriously, man, go straight up to the end of ep 4, Exodus Pt. 2. It's definitively my favourite Galactica episode, and probably my favourite live action tv series episode ever. I only wish I could be there to watch your face every time McCreary & the Battlestar Orchestra start pummelling on the taikos.
  2. That is standard wingmen procedure: if you cannot get the bandit, set it up so you wing will. And you have four pair of eyes instead of two for the same reason: if you cannot see the bandit, then your wingman might. That's the safest, more efficient way to hunt on a fighter, collaborating with the second part of the pair. Something that neither Kat nor Starbuck were willing to do, I may add. I actually liked her development (but not the character itself) because I saw her trying to overcompensate for the pills incident earlier on the season. She's the insecure natural: she has the skills to pull it through but she's too unsure of herself that she has to prove it all over again every time she can. Even worst, in the inside she knows she's being childish and it might be a very dangerous thing - and I think she realizes that when Starbuck starts recalling the name of the dead, to the point of being angry to herself. I think if she was in a real, properly organized military, with enough training, she would have had enough time to weed that out before it became dangerous for herself and her wingmen But this ain't that. This is frakking Battlestar Galactica.
  3. I think I just cried a little. That was beautiful.
  4. It's better than what they have been doing here in the States, where it's scheduled for never.
  5. I would have actually liked it better if he had had more screen time. Tom Zarek was, when properly written, one of the most interesting characters in the series - and surprisingly enough for me, Hatch had the chops to deliver when it counted. Gubaba, man, drop Battlestar Ponderosa and get yourself back on the Bucket. Not that the rest of it isn't good, but mid-season 2 and the beginning of season 3 have some of the best episodes of Battlestar Galactica, if not of TV, ever, and truth to be told I can barely wait to hear what you have to say about them. Edit: That, and the fact that when you're done with the series we can stop using those pesky blacks stripes.
  6. God, that was beautiful. I think I found the newest poster for my room.
  7. I'm in love all over again I need a poster sized version!
  8. Damn you. I saw this an hour ago and I'm still crying.
  9. He uses watercolours over lightly traced pencils photocopied from not-so-lightly traced sketches. Or at least, he used to. He's been into digital colouring lately - as far as I remember, the Max and Millia boxart for the limited edition Hasegawa Virgin Road VF-1D was one of his first digital pieces, but don't quote me on this. Obviously, Mikimoto for me. I really like Ebata's designs, but that might be because I'm attached to the characters themselves; they are close to the standard style of this days. But then again, Mikimoto's own designs back in 82 weren't that much different from the standard style back then either, and after that he has been much more of an illustrator than a character designer, which allowed his own style to develop in any way he wanted (not unlike Amano). Who knows, maybe 20 years down the road ms Ebata will have given us a couple of very nice surprises. That said, after seen his drawing of Sara and Mao Nome, I would love to see Mikimoto's take on the Frontier cast, and Ebata's take on the SDF cast just for the kicks. And although I hate Masayuki designs for Macross Plus with a passion, I gotta admit I have no idea how Mikimoto's style would have fit there had he done the designs for a dark story like Plus instead of the preliminary designs for 7. It worked for War in the Pocket, but Plus is just too far away from that for comfort.
  10. They tried http://www.variety.com/article/VR111794487...yid=13&cs=1 But then Virginia Tech happened and, well, you know how sensitive people are. If United 93 is anything to go by, I guess they'll restart production in 2012 or something, maybe earlier if they run out of things to remake.
  11. I don't really mind them recycling footage if they are going to do things like the Sheryl insertion there - same footage, different or tweaked plot. After all, Phantasm in the original series was pretty much all reused and repurposed cells and sequences and still turned out to be one of the best (if not a little stoned) episodes in the entire franchise IMHO.
  12. It has something to do with her singing a Gabriela Robin song and sounding just like Gabriela Robin. Singing in public, I mean. Public like in probably her highest profile concert ever which also happened to be a celebration to her career.
  13. Fame? Didn't we get a remake of that already in Glee? (Which, surprisingly enough, is actually good )
  14. As a Spanish speaker, that offer is VERY tempting... but I'll pass. On this day and age, if people want to anonymously sneak something out in the internet, they will, period, and there is nothing anyone can do about it - except making it available for sneaking in the first place. I do want to be able to see and read Macross Ace, but I want even more to see it finish its run naturally first, and supporting anything that might backfire against that goal... nah, not gonna do it. Thanks anyway. --- Ciertamente, es una oferta bastante tentadora... pero paso. En estos tiempos, si alguien quiere piratear algo en internet de manera anonima, lo haran, y no hay nada que se pueda hacer al respecto - excepto evitar la posibilidad de que ese algo sea pirateado en primer lugar. Por mas ganas que tenga de leer Macross Ace ahorita, mas ganas aun tengo de que termine su publicacion entera en primer lugar, y no quiero hacer nada que ponga eso en el mas minimo riesgo. Gracias de todas maneras.
  15. Ditto here. I've never had to cheat to pass any GTA mission in my life... (but after the storyline is over, I'll happily spawn a Harrier and go to town )
  16. I'd follow that man to the end of the Earth... ... ok, I just figured out why no one makes comments like this about the Cap: it sounds ghey. Well, I'd follow him anyway.
  17. That's... probably the funniest picture I've seen in a while
  18. ... I can't believe it. I just screamed "Say anything!" to the screen.
  20. We're proud nerds through and through Anyway, get me a better script writer. It's supposed to be a fun movie, so I don't really care about silly stuff as long as it is entertaining That's how I'm able to bloody enjoy Armageddon, even though I'm an aerospace freak - it's a fun movie, with rockets and explosions, directed by a guy who knows how to make rockets and explosion really cool; if I wanted something deeper I'd be watching Deep Impact (not to say that THAT one didn't have issues). But when I'm pull out of my fun trip because someone does something that even in context is so utterly stupid or doesn't make sense at all... well, the fun-makers ain't doing their job right. And, yeah, cut it with LeBouf already! If we want to see people instead of robots in the movie, we'd rather see Megan.
  21. As the guy who translated the Ohnogi essay into Spanish for Gubaba to post at Macross Generation, I've also translated the Shaloom answer into English for him as soon as I knew about it. I'm going to post it here too, as Gubaba suggested, "for the sake of records, and so no one can say we didn't give Shaloom a fair shake." Since this was a quick and dirty guerrilla translation, I ask all Spanish speaking MWers who find anything wrong with it to comment about it.
  22. I just saw Endless Eight 2. Man, that was... bloody oppresive. I think I just became a Kyoto Animation fanboy; for a series as lighthearted as Haruhi, this has been the first time in a while I've felt truly uncomfortable, if not disturbed while watching a TV series (except for BSG, but that's a totally different magnitude of discomfort). Dissonance for the win!
  23. I volunteer for that. I'm a native Spanish speaker and an English Creative Writing major with a knack for semantics, so even though I'm no professional translator I guess I can do a pretty decent job (that, and that since I'm on my summer break I have time to spare). If you want me to, I think I can have a draft ready for tomorrow night or Tuesday morning so the rest of the Spanish speaking MWers can go over it and give it the seal of approval.
