    if "everyone else" started raping small children, would you do it too?
    i'm sure i could come up with something funny, but it would definetly offend too many people to be worth it...


    The Drenai books were written by an author named David Gemmell. On that note, if you like heroic-fantasty novels, then he's worth having a look at.
    ^ thanks, i'll check him out

    I liked Akira and I only watch anime (or anything else not in english) with subtitles.

    Dubs kill anything foregn off, unless its a cheesy kung-fu flick, then it just heightens the experience.

    Ill side with you on that, over the years, Ive seen it on SBS (TV station that plays 'global' films) about 5 times. So that plus the couple of times Ive seen it on computer's left me a little 'over' it. The GITS movies arent bad though; if I were to go an anime movie at the moment, Id go them.

    1) Love in the Time of Cholera, by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Best book ever.

    2) Songs from the Second Floor by Roy Andersson. Best movie ever.

    3) Furnace Room Lullaby by Neko Case. Not the best album ever, but one of those things that you know you would miss dearly once you no longer had it.

    4) A George Jones box set. Really, all I'd need would be "Good Year for the Roses," but I'm sure I'd enjoy some variety.

    5) I can't think of anything else.

    Wow, someone else listens to Neko. I even have Canadian Amp on vinyl, so you know I'm a die hard.

    Media? Probably the following, if I was leaving right now. Results could differ tomorrow.

    1. Dune - Frank Herbert, I've probably read this at least 10 times now. A few more wouldn't hurt.
    2. Rolling Stones - Let it Bleed (preferably on SACD).
    3. Pool of Radiance (old school gaming).
    4. The Fifth Element (Superbit Collection), I never get tired of this one.
    5. Miles Davis - Someday My Prince Will Come - Vinyl, can't beat classic Miles.
