    the forums haven't been too active and I've been kinda busy with my own stuff, but there's no harm in catching up with people who are still around, haha how's it going?

    To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand the Netflix adaptation of Death Note. The drama is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of moral philosophy, most of the themes will go over a typical viewer's head. There's also Light's narcissistic outlook, which is deftly woven into his characterisation - his personal philosophy draws heavily from Machiavellian literature, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these murders, to realize that they're not just awesome- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike the Netflix adaptation of Death Note truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, the drama in Light's existential catchphrase from the original anime "I'll take a potato chip, and eat it" which itself was left out of the adaptation because of how trivial the scene was to the theme of the movie. I’m smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Adam Wingard’s genius wit unfolds itself on their television screens. What fools.. how I pity them. And yes, by the way, i DO have a Death Note tattoo (one reminiscent of the Netflix adaptation, of course). And no, you cannot see it. It's for the ladies' eyes only- And even they have to demonstrate that they're within 5 IQ points of my own (preferably lower) beforehand. Nothin personnel kid -- In all seriousness though, I thought the movie was hilarious. The movie was so bad that my friends were willing to sit through the experience again just to see what my reaction was. I wasn't expecting it to be good, but maybe I was just pleasantly surprised because I wasn't going to take the movie seriously to begin with ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ But if I could sum up the entire movie in one picture, this would be it:

    What was the recent Anime you watched?

    I'm normally not a fan of these kinds of anime, but something about Shokugeki is just oddly... intriguing? I honestly can't put my finger on it, lol. I think it's just the fact that they weaved the fanservice in a way that's actually purposeful. That in itself is already pretty impressive. This show also reminds me of Detective Conan for whatever reason. I think that might be because of the way the students always divulge the secrets to their dishes and explain why their ingredients or approach overshadowed their opponent's cooking. Kinda like how Conan always explains how the culprits screwed up in their murder attempts. I don't watch Yu-Gi-Oh but I can definitely see why you might think that, haha.

    What's on Your Mind?

    OH MAN, a similar thing actually happened to me as well. Our building’s alarm went off so everyone had to evacuate. I figured we would be outside for a while, and what better time to grab a few pairs of eclipse glasses? Except the place that was handing them out was all the way across campus, so my mentor dissuaded me from going, and I never had another opportunity to grab eclipse glasses from my workplace since then. It caused me a lot of stress when I was trying to track down places that were handing them out weeks later, lol. -- OMM: why is textbook hunting such a pain

    What Was the Last Song You Listened To?

    the La La Land soundtrack is just too damn good, geezus
  12. Kenzi

    What's on Your Mind?

    probably not all that much different (aside from the general polishing and gear replacement) if they plan on preserving its historical integrity ironically enough, it was easier to track down places that were handing them out for free than it was to hunt for stores that had them in-stock (or even online at a reasonable price, for that matter) -- a cloud blocked the view during the peak of the eclipse yesterday ._. granted, I wasn’t in the path of totality, so it wasn’t that big of a deal, but it still annoyed me a good amount, lol the next eclipse is happening in 2024, and I live close enough to the path of totality, so that’ll be pretty hype at least (honestly though, who knows where I’ll end up in seven years, haha)

    What's on Your Mind?

    for now at least until school starts back up again, lol it’s nice to see that some of you guys are still around also, can I just take a moment to mention how stupidly difficult it was to get my hands on eclipse glasses if not already sold out, those glasses were either on the other side of the world or being sold at a ludicrous price

    Movie 20: The Darkest Nightmare

    DC movies have all been downhill for me, but hey, different strokes for different folks ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    What's the last movie you saw?

    I watched these movies a while ago but…………. Spider-Man Homecoming was gr8/8 it had so many overused tropes and dank memes but it was just executed so well end credits scene killed me tho Wonder Woman was ok premise was kinda cliche

    Movie 20: The Darkest Nightmare

    thread is dead but I figured I’d update my thoughts on here anyway so I finally got around to watching this movie and I’ve never seen Ran in a more vestigial role. ever. nothing about the movie would’ve changed if the producers took her out entirely ferris wheel design may also be one of the worst feats of “engineering” I’ve ever seen it took every ounce of effort to not burst out laughing in the middle of the night when the announcer lauded that it was the aquarium’s most important renovation everything else worth complaining about more or less stays the same between most DC movies but I appreciate the flashback they snuck in there oh no wonder it’s the highest-grossing DC movie to date lol

    Even if I lack the time to really sit down, I don't think I can ever abandon DCW entirely. I've spent a good chunk of time derping around here these past couple years, and I'll always be grateful for how much I've grown from interacting with you guys. I look back on my history here quite fondly, so I'll always have a soft spot for DCW, haha. you rite tho the absence of activity here does make DCW feel like a wasteland, lol

    I'm curious to hear about what you guys are up to (even if we don't talk much) ...if there's anyone still here o: --- OMM: SUMMER IS FINALLY HERE well, not officially, but the school year is over so it's summer for me :^) I have so much on my backlog but I'm really glad I finally had the chance to play through Chrono Trigger and LIMBO tbh the only reason I got a Steam account was because LIMBO was on sale, lol I only have a couple more weeks to potato before going back to work, so I gotta make these dog days worthwhile, heh there's so much I want to do now that I finally have some free time to sit down gosh I'm so excited........... ahhh, it feels so good to be on break :')

    What Was the Last Video Game You Played?

    School is done (for now) and I finally had the chance to finish Chrono Trigger (which I previously thought would never have the chance to play) and LIMBO. I loved Chrono Trigger for the Steins;Gate vibes and I loved LIMBO for its simplicity and puzzles. Both are fantastic games.

    not exactly, bit I'd say there is some resemblance my parents ended up sending him back because taking care of him was too much work it might've been for the better since he never got the attention he deserved during the daytime since no one was home the poor guy just kept meowing and pawing at the door until someone opened it for him :c I agree! the extra touch of realism can really help, haha

    What's on Your Mind?

    The last Pokemon games I’ve played were the gen V games, so it’s been a while, haha. I’ve been told that the newer games tend to be a lot easier since they buffed the exp. share so that experience is distributed among every member of your party (which makes it stupidly easy to become over-leveled, lol). I turned off my exp. share the moment I received it, and admittedly, there were a few parts of the game that caused me a fair amount of stress (one of the trials took me a couple of attempts to beat, and I was actually a bit under-leveled for the elite 4). Granted, I didn’t really grind and mainly relied on trainer battles to gain levels, haha. One of my friends went to even further lengths to up the difficulty by setting the battle style to “Set” instead of “Shift” (“Set” doesn’t give you the option of seeing the opponents next Pokemon after you knock one out). I’d venture to guess that you left the exp. share turned on and had your battle style set on “Shift” if you thought it was that easy? Seeing as you haven’t beaten the game yet, maybe implement these options and see what happens! But to answer your question, the difficulty curve is comparable to some of the older games when the exp. share is turned off. Maybe a little easier, or at least in my opinion, lol. OH MAN, the new features are amazing. For starters, no HMs is probably one of the best aspects of these games. The Pokedex is actually useful for once by telling you Pokemon locations and even giving you typings of Pokemon you haven’t caught yet (which was especially useful since I was trying my darndest not to spoil the games for myself). Also the fact that whenever you catch a Pokemon, the game gives you the option of seeing its summary and letting you put it in your party instead of sending it straight to the PC box! The list just goes on and on, haha. Um, I greet people with “Happy Holidays," lol. But does that mean I'm against Christmas? Not in the least bit (fun fact: it’s actually my favorite holiday). What about Kwanzaa? Well, I don’t exactly celebrate it, but that doesn’t necessarily mean I have adverse feelings towards it either. And same, I’m not Christian, but I celebrate Christmas for the exact reasons you do. Quite the opposite, actually. After reading your take on the subject, perhaps our differing perspectives is due to our interpretation of the phrase “Happy Holidays.” To me, “Happy Holidays” is inclusive of all of these different celebrations since you can’t assume what each person celebrates. I don’t see how it can be considered name-swapping unless, for example, you’re solely referring to Christmas when you say “Happy Holidays” (which seems to be what you’re claiming). But again, that’s not what I feel the phrase is meant for. The phrase is meant to be inclusive of every holiday during this time of the year, not just Christmas. In other words, “Happy Holidays” is actually acknowledging every holiday, as opposed to only saying “Merry Christmas” or “Happy Hanukkah” to someone who might only celebrate Kwanzaa. But, in the end, no matter what you consider the phrase to mean, the person wishing you a “Happy Holidays” is ultimately wishing you happiness. It’s not really fair to interpret the benevolent gesture as some malicious attempt to cause you offense, lol. not to drag @machine into the conversation or anything, but I think this just about sums it up pretty well: before my parents adopted the guy, its name had been “Pickles” for about three weeks we haven’t made a firm decision yet, so its name seems to alternate between “Pickles” and some Chinese variant of “Kitty Cat” lol and it’s about a year old, haha I was asked the same question by one of my friends, except his question was “why did everyone choose Sun because you’re the only person I know who chose Moon” hahahh LITTEN I only did it so I could name the guy “mixtape” no ragrets

    What's on Your Mind?

    ALL OF MY YES oh man, I thought I was head over heels for Platinum, but Moon completely blew my expectations out of the water the main thing I'm peeved about are the AIs in Battle Royal I genuinely want to see what their algorithm consists of because I swear there's no predictable pattern I could discern from their battle tactics (aside from, you know, targeting the weakest guy) or I dunno, there could be an aspect of probability/chance that plays a bigger role than it should because I was getting seriously frustrated playing this battle format after being ganged up on for the umpteenth time despite there being enemies with disadvantaged typings on the field also the framerate issue can be a bit annoying at times, but it's nowhere near enough to impede on the most organic ecstasy I've felt in ages playing this godsend of a game everything has been pretty good on my end, but I hope things look up for you for New Year's! tbh I always thought that saying "Happy Holidays" was a way of encompassing holidays such as Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Christmas, etc. into a generic greeting people do mean well when they say it so I don't see how it's taboo to refer to these occasions as such, especially since you can't assume what each person celebrates I'm not trying to argue with you, I'm just curious about how you came to this conclusion -- OMM: my parents got a cat while I was gone .-. OMM2: recently prioritized Cowboy Bebop on my watch list after having several friends rave about it to me I haven't finished it yet but it's damn good

    What's on Your Mind?

    @M.K. I don’t think it’s fair to dismiss a show solely based on the fact that it incorporates explicit content (or even go so far as to say that you “hate” it), especially when you haven’t even given it a chance. It’s a shame you generate this much animosity towards nudity and violence, because there are a ton of thought-provoking films and shows out there you’d be missing out on if you continue judging them through the same lens. -- OMM: microaggressions :^) I actually feel kinda bad for the presenters because this term is turning into a running gag. The seminar was just really hard to take seriously, hahahah. OMM2: I’m really itchy :<
