Can anyone tell me if this is an actual spoiler or just a memebox?
I'm afraid to open it

Also known as a surprisebox. Not an actual spoiler but spoilers used for comic effect.

I know that it's a meme, but I find it extremely hilarious. Oh well, can't stop liking that SSJ potato.

I feel the same way right now. I need to learn when to stop.

Well Thursday night into Friday, doesn't matter much to me. I don't eat much any other time besides Saturday usually anyways. I'll be fine but for now I'll try to be comfortable feeling like a pig. I've probably damaged the way my body absorbs food with how much I can eat in a single sitting anyways and most just passes straight through me.
>> No. 25158 [Edit]
I like my pizza with either pineapple and ham or just pepperoni. I prefer it thinner also.
>> No. 25161 [Edit]
Tombstone pepperoni ultra-thin crust. Ever since pizza was the last thing I ate before having a really violent (hacking up bile for over a week, constant fever, etc, violent) flu, I've associated real pizza, even delivery pizza with that experience. The only pizza I can stand is this kind of artificial pizza that doesn't taste much like pizza should. Yet despite this, its still one of my favourite things to consume.

I'd like to start another dream thread, if that's all right. I'll go first.
You know how when you're a fan of something like anime or scifi or similar things in your teenage years parents will try to buy stuff for you? My dad and stepmom bought anime\manga related shit at yard sales a lot. Sometimes it was good, sometimes it was off the mark.
Well, in my dream I'm still in high school. I'm sitting there playing Xbox when my dad & stepmom walk in and yell that they got me something at a yard sale. I'm think to myself, "well, probably shit, but I might as well see," and go to check it out.
I walk into the kitchen and on the table is a box full of stuff from Neon Genesis Evangelion.
I get more excited and go to see what it is. There's every episode in raws and fansubs on
VHS, some uniforms, figurines, and even Shinjis' fucking tape recorder with the tape he listens to inside it! All the merchandise seems to be older and seems like it was directly imported from Japan. I ask where they found it.
It cuts to a yard sale with a slightly sad fiftyish woman in her front yard. She talked about how her son loved this show and whatnot, and seemed very sad. She sold it all for about 10-20 dollars.
I take all the stuff out and find a suicide note. Her son had gotten into anime in the
eighties while in high school and was completely inept and friendless. He grew obsessed with
Evangelion and felt a strong kinship with Shinji because he was such a fuck up. He grew older
and couldn't find anyone to share his interests with, became more and more of a recluse, and
killed himself in the late nineties, which I recall being a shame since the internet as of
96, when he killed himself, could have given him a place to talk to others and feel less alone. I realized he was "an otaku of another generation." I hung up his note and saluted it. I then went to watch his tapes and realized that he had dubbed it himself in case he ever met anyone who wanted to share his joy. I inherited his legacy. His mother had cleaned house and ended up giving me a record of a hikkikomori life.

According to http://www.dreammoods.com/dreamdictionary/m4.htm

It means: "To dream that you are having sex with your mother implies that you are becoming like your mother. No matter how hard you try to deny it, you feel her influence. The dream may also be a graphic way of how you need to incorporate some of her qualities within your own self."

Maybe it's true or something. I don't know.

I had the same dream some years back.

I dreamed that I had to poop. When I woke up, it turned out that I didn't have to poop. Written and directed by M. Night Shyamalan.
>> No. 25156 [Edit]
M. Night Shyamalan writing and directing poop? Them some wild dreams you got there anon.
>> No. 25157 [Edit]
I was just being silly. I'm think Shyamalan is known for having a big twist in his movies. So I was just being silly and saying the revelation that I did not have to poop was a big twist.

Does this happen to any of you? I very often wake up, but am too lazy to get up and go on the computer. Then I fall half asleep again and imagine going on the computer and doing the things I usually do: check a few sites, talking to people, playing a game, whatever. Then I get up a while later, go on the computer, and find that I haven't done anything yet.

Close but no cigar I guess. What usually happens to me (happened today, too): I wake up but go back to a pretty-much-sleeping-state except somehow I'm vaguely aware that I'm actually asleep. I imagine all the fun things I'll do once I'll wake up... and then I actually wake up, realize there's absolutely nothing I'd like to do and I spend a couple of hours in bed.
>> No. 25134 [Edit]
I haven't had that exact scenario happen to me, but something similar. I'll wake up sometimes, talk to family / eat breakfast / do stuff on the computer, but then fall asleep soon afterwards and completely black out everything that's happened since waking up. It's disconcerting to find things on my computer not how I left them, or to wake up with family looking at me strange not having any memory of what I did or said.

I know we're a lazy bunch and we don't go out that much but I'd still like to propose you a photography thread as it can be funny like I'm imagining it.

It's simple. Use any device that let's you take photos and report back with something interesting you found. It can be anything. Outside your window, in your room, in your backyard, in your garage or house. It doesn't have to be any kind of professional stuff, although that's okay of course.

Please limit photos to a maximum resolution of 2560x1920 or something around that area for everyone's viewing pleasure. The photos have to be new and not something you took last year. がんばって!

EDIT: Sorry, my mistake. They're right there: the fairies are the louche, that is, the wormwood oils' emulsion that gives absinth its peculiar taste. The intoxicating effects apparently are just due to the high alcohol level, though.

How about just pics and links with some comment, this time?

Part 1/3. Now you can begin to imagine what Fuminori experienced everyday (also: some of the most faithful depictions of 3D sex I have ever seen in part 3/3).

First Lain video I ever saw.
Back in 2000-something it was labeled "Layer 00" on Kazaa, so I thought it was a promo video or something. It's well-made enough that I assumed that for a while. It took me a few weeks to find out what the hell an "AMV" was. Good times.

All the scenes in this video are good, but this one in particular. Nearly every line is hilarious.

"Even dinosaurs are here. And they use bows and arrows. MY SWORD IS UNBELIEVABLY DULL."
"We die together?!" "...PROBABLY."
"I have to strengthen my mind. I must do Chi: spiritual unification and practice Zen"-"I'M BEING CHASED BY A REAL ARMY."

How about a thread for Japanese movies, drama, and live action?

I really love the GTO, Nodame and Liar Game live action.

I was watching this one show called Trick that is fucking awesome, but I still need to finish the second season.

I started making a list sorta like MAL.

About the older Godzilla movies, Check out piratebay and other torrents. There has recently been a flood of 1080p Bluray rips of many of the earlier and 90's+ Godzilla movies.

The 90's-2000's were pretty good. The ones in the 60's and 70s were crap and specifically aimed at kids.

yeah it was pretty obvious they were going after the kids by the time of the mid 60s. First clue was when they started not so subtlety including Godzilla toys on screen then going on have children in larger and larger roles. One I recall was entirely centered around a kid. The 60s-70s godzilla movies seem like they'd only be truly enjoyable when watched with a group of friends so you can all poke fun at them together.

I'm on the mid 90s at the moment.
85's Godzilla was surprisingly good and was down right fantastic compared to the bunch before it. It's almost weird to see him as an actually menace after so many movies of him being portrayed as japan's protector, even though that's how it should be. The sets used were god damn impressive and all the models looked really good. With this one they did away with a lot of the crap that ruined the old ones and made them the cheesy campy films they were.
1989's Godzilla vs Biollante had some "holy fucking shit this is awesome!" grade fights with well done effects designs and camera work. Those fights really look a lot better at night and being set at night can help make model buildings look less noticeably fake. Shame it took them so long to figure that out. The only thing that kind of killed it for me was all the bad acting, although that was mainly from the American actors. Still it's one of the very few godzilla movies I'd recommend.

I knew as soon as I saw they released a movie every single consecutive year between 1991-1995 that I could expect a drop in quality and for the movies to come off rushed and sure enough that was exactly the case. It's pretty obvious just from watching them they were under time constrains and didn't have much of a budget. They're more competently made with better writing, editing and so on than the 60-70 movies, but they still come off feeling like episodes of a super sentai series. The effects in some of them can be pretty horrible for the time they're in too and the sets aren't as impressive. 1991's Godzilla vs King Ghidorah was so laughably bad on so many levels, it honestly has some of the worst acting I&

I don't normally watch J-Dramas either, not because of any particular objection to them but simply because I haven't gotten around to exploring that particular area of Japan's culture. Then, a couple of years ago, I was at a con and wandered into a room where they had live action asian films playing, and got hooked watching this show called Kaseifu No Mita. I am curious if anyone else has ever seen this show, because it is honestly one of the best things I've seen in some time. I still have to see the ending of it, but seriously tho...that shit is really, surprisingly good.

Relatedly: why are you selling your figures, Tohno? Is your economic situation that bad?
>> No. 25074 [Edit]
I don't really sell figs from my personal collection. I mostly sell figs I find good deals on for a (small) profit. I simply made some mistakes in doing so recently which kinda set me back a bit. mainly getting a bunch of figs I didn't (but should have) realized were cheap prize figs that would cost more in shipping/fees than what could sell them for.
