I don't really see what you were arguing about.
But I don't really see what are people arguing about most of the time. At some point I just see words words but no meaning. I don't know if it's a fault of our language that makes people fall into vicious dialectic circles or I'm just dumb and I don't get what people are talking about.

Basically I wrote a dissenting opinion on a popular comment and someone who agreed with the general consensus went out of their way to tell me everybody has a different opinion. I tried actually discussing this difference in opinion and why people would feel differently about the same thing, but he kept dismissing my attempts by repeating "everything is subjective". When I called him out on this directly, he ironically called me closed minded to justify not saying anything else.

A lot of fake "conversation" is subtext and ego battles. There really was no point to his first reply except to dismiss me "nicely"(in a roundabout way). He might have even done it subconsciously. He never intended to talk to me.

Post-modernism gets a bad rap because of politics and how easy it is to abuse, but it can work really well in fiction. Shiki and No Country for Old Men are two of my favorite examples of post-modernism being used correctly. It can create a type of atmosphere and feeling you can't find elsewhere. It's just another tool in the creative toolbox. I like post-modernism more than modernism actually.

Jack Frost, Pixie, and Nekomata Laziness combined with this delusion that I'm entitled to make something of myself artistically. Just nevermind that a lot of successful artists have more than just creative skill, they also have the ability to network so they can make their creations known, as well as support from friends and family (especially while growing up) to nurture their talents.

It depends how well the website is coded. Websites of large internet conglomerates as well as otaku-targeted sites probably handle it fine, but I don't have much faith that your typical small American company is going to get it right considering how many of them do things such as impose password length limits.

A while back I found a list of passwords for databases we had access to in my middle school. I thought it would interesting to see what articles they had on anime. Here's a few interesting and amusing choice quotes.

LOST IN A WORLD OF ANIME, SCREAMS AND THE 'JESUS PHONE'- 2007
>Goku may fly over you this weekend, Sanji will offer a tasty dish and one of Naruto's kunais might come zipping through the air. It's a good thing I brought my kids to work because I'm really not sure what all that means. The boys tell me these and other characters from the world of anime will fill downtown starting Friday when Florida's largest anime convention kicks off at the Tampa Convention Center.
>The boys are excited, but me? I'm just waiting for The Flintstones convention. …
>About that iPhone hype. Unless it comes with a direct connection to the man above, I don't think you should call anything the "Jesus phone."

TV Overdose for Kids- 2009
>I still get nostalgic whenever I come across kiddie shows on television.For example, I pine for old good carrot-munching Bugs Bunny and perky Woody Woodpecker. The fast-paced Japanese animated shows called Anime, in my book, are too realistic and mere imitation of violent adult action movies. Some of the casualties of modern animation were characters that my generation grew up with.
>harsh-voice Donald Duck, Tom and Jerry and Mickey Mouse with his merry gang of Minnie Mouse, Pluto and hare-brained Goofy, truly kid stuffs. These wholesome shows of my childhood have now been replaced by Astro Boy, Voltes V, Mazinger Z and other androids battling mechanical monsters out to take over the world.As always, the shows always end up with the hero and the villain trying to annihilate each other in a flurry of lights, colors and grating synthesized sounds. Great for kids, but unfortunately, bad for their education.
>Research shows that exposure to this type of programming increases the risk of aggressive behavior and at the same time, desensitizes children to violence. Studies on links between TV overdose and child development and value

>To save paying $100 plus per tape, fans would drive for miles to the paltry number of stores stocking anime. They'd tape it, duplicate it, then send it back. It was Gunbuster's success that triggered a flurry of releases, Tatsugawa says.
>More Americans got excited by anime in 1993, when the Fox Channel Network aired a remake of the Power Rangers, says Innes. Mighty Morphin Power Rangers was an instant hit and created an anime frenzy.
>PORN VERSUS PURITAN
>What might hold all this back is pornography and violence. Compared with American cartoons, the miniskirts, bare bottoms and flirtatiousness on some anime can look a bit smutty. Tatsugawa says that part of this might be different cultural values. While Puritan American mothers might balk at boys pulling off girls' shirts on an anime show, Japanese moms might be shocked by Itchy blowing up Scratchy on The Simpsons.
>But the biggest hurdle of all might be the presence of Xrated anime porn. The weird adult anime available in video stores in the US and in Japan is something that companies like Pioneer, Bandai and Viz Communications want nothing to do with. Tatsugawa thinks mainstream companies will react the same way. If you have AOL Time Warner and Disney getting behind anime, the last thing they want is for American mothers to second-guess their anime purchase, Tatsugawa says. "That would crush the industry here." When Japanese manga and anime come to American shores, the content can seem a little raw or risque to American readers. Viz Communications has tweaked the content of manga it handles to suite American tastes; Jason Thompson, editor of the new Enghsh-version of Shonen Jump, offers some examples.
>"We removed a two-page sequence where Misty, the lead female character for Pokemon, was bathing in a hot spring. Where the women's clothing was too revealing, we had to make the swimsuits larger and changed the shape of their bodies so they were less provocative (i.e. less chesty).

I watched The Cabin in the Woods expecting the typical, but it turned out to be a parody-thing. And it was decent. Very amused by the need for countries to create their own slasher situations. Japan's attempt was quite amusing. Who knew JS' were that hard to kill?

Is only true if you're willing to give away your listening habits and whatever other datamining their app probably does.

No, because it was too obvious and cartoonish. It's a thin, oldish guy with overly long, white hair who smiles and laughs maniacally a lot. Yep, that's what a crazy killer looks like. If he looked like a completely normal, or even attractive guy, and he was just one of the school teachers there or a hotel worker, or a police officer, that would have been unnerving. Or if one of her friends killed her, that would have also been better. It could have been an accidental death and be scarier. Some evil guy who looks comically evil, doesn't scare me in fiction.

If the villain is supernatural, I don't think it should be given a human form or shown at all.
>> No. 36788 [Edit]
Socialization really doesn't make any sense. I may seem selfish saying this, and that's probably so, but why do people always seek out new friendships rather than being satisfied with one? You can form a great friendship & think it's going perfectly until you realize the other person just wants more & more friends. You're just another person to them. Applies to both real-life and the internet, though it's to be expected on the internet.

>why do people always seek out new friendships rather than being satisfied with one?
People have frienships for validation and entertainment. One person can't provide an average person enough of these two things to satisfy them. They'd rather have 10+ casual friends they can rotate through when needed than one really good friend because that's more reliable for whatever they need/want, and it gives them more social clout. It doesn't appeal to me either, but for normal people, this human-based mercantilism comes naturally.

I suspect you think like that because you expect friendship to be some sort of soulbonding deep connection when it's just a simple need that requires to be fulfilled to make survival easier. The more friends the strongest the social net so you have a bigger support in case of need.
It's a completely different mindset as >>36789 expressed it quite well. Even some normals also notice that and feel disappointed, leading into the usual emptiness and mid-life crisis.
