Re: The Most Bad Ass Anime Scene you have seen

The entire series of Cowboy Bebop. For me it was when they first find the 'mysterious hacker Edward' and the last moment of the last episode. You know what I'm talking about. Am I a sociopath if I think Pierrot Le Fou was the best episode? Maybe. Maybe... It was the first episode I saw and gave me ...

Re: Ayn Rand

George Orwell wrote a dystopian story that was nowhere near as dragging as Rand's drivel. 1984 was very good. I will acknowledge that. Surprisingly large amount of sex for a book about overcoming Totally not shadow government based around a dead Stalin. But why use 'drivel?' It's clearly not, other...

Re: Ayn Rand

Ayn Rand is one of the best Dystopian future authors I have ever read. Atlas Shrugged and Anthem are easily in my top twenty stories of all time. However, she can be very dry and preachy at times, BUT THAT IS EXPECTED FROM ANYTHING HAVING TO DO WITH DYSTOPIAN/UTOPIAN STORIES

In my personal opinion: 1) Time skips are okay, but only if they are really meaningful. Also, don't be a dick and say that five years passed and use that five year span as an excuse to pump as much bullshit as you can, or at least mention it when you're summing up the passed five years.. For example...

Re: Star Trek: Into Darkness

I didn't really like it... The way he threw everything from the old series out the window except for THE THING he stole from THE STAR TREK MOVIE set himself up to be compared to THE STAR TREK MOVIE, a challenge he's bound to lose in the eyes of Trekkies.
