It seems positive waves were all I needed.
Found the keys when I went home. Wife excitedly shared with me the news that she HAS A JOB INTERVIEW TOMORROW FOR BANK OF AMERICA IN DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN- BROOKLYN'S FINANCIAL CAPITAL.
So yeah. Excited.
not once did I mention the word nuclear. That was your assumption, not mine. I am well aware of what an ASBM can do despite the fact that I am not an engineer.
That said, a movie about missiles fired by a guy thousands of miles away from a target is the plot of a rather boring video game (see missile command), not a movie I would want to sit through. Stick with physics demos and the occasional episode of Mythbusters, engineer, I'll be watching giant robots punch monsters and have fun while doing it. Snickering from the peanut gallery will be ignored at first, followed by a demonstration of popcorn ballistics if it continues.
anti ship ballistic missile into a populated area.
This is why you will never be president.
Can't link to stuff as I am posting from phone.
I'm old school. It doesn't get much better than bubblegum crisis music. While bubblegum crash has the occasional good song, it doesn't get better than the original. Also, do not listen to the dub. I implore you.
Giant robot music is also a staple of my ear's diet. Dangaio's opening theme and overall theme music is perfect. PERFECT. There is a recent take on the Combattler V opening that is good, along with a music video for a semi unrelated song that is breathtaking. Just YouTube Combattler V 2012 to see what I mean. There is also the soundtrack to the love child of Dangaio, Godannar, which has AMAZING music.
I love true Gundam. But I have to say aside from the opening to Zeta Gundam, the music is lacking. The only good thing to come out of the pretenders is the music of Two Mix, and G Gundam first opening is wonderful. The closing to Gundam X pulls at my heartstrings, for some reason.
But when it comes to robots, anime and music, no series does it better than Macross. Over 30 years of amazing music in every incarnation. While my personal favorite is the music of Macross frontier (I love may'n and Maya Sakamoto!!! Yoko Kanno arranged/composed all of the music, to say nothing of the work Gabriela Robin put in!), the music of Macross 7 with its John Lennonesque main character with his peace and love soundtrack brings my friends together every time- even one who HATES giant robots is a fan. A friend recently went to a concert shelling out major money just to hear two songs by the artist who did the series. I liked only one song from Macross Plus, but it's Yoko Kanno- it's all good stuff. And of course, what would Macross be without the original Super Dimensional Fortress Macross? Lynn Minmays music is amazing even today, Little White Dragon remains a personal favorite, but My Boyfriend is a Pilot is the takeaway hit that was redone in Macross Frontier. But it is the over the top music of Macross 7 that I think has the most crossover appeal. I was originally going to warn everyone off from listening to ENGLISH FIRE!! but I just discovered that it is actually part of the universe- a band on Macross 11 that is managed by *Lynn Kaifun* that claims FIRE BOMBER!! is a rip off of their original music. If you know who that is, I'll give you a million internets.
As I am old school Megumi Hayashibara is a goddess. Listen to almost every Slayers opening ever, along with the music to most 90s harem action anime such as Sorcerer Hunters and Saber Marionette J.
In terms of outliers, I loved the music to Debutante Detective Corps, Revolutionary Girl Utena, and a host of other series I can't think of right now.
they explained why this was a bad idea in the first few minutes of the first movie.
While I think white privilege is a thing, I also think the concept is a very crude, unfinshed bludgeon when on such a sensitive topic an obsidian scalpel is needed.

Two weeks paternity leave sounds wonderful. Twelve weeks maternity leave sounds like mothers finally getting the respect they deserve.
I can see how that would have been offensive to many, but I also can think of a few ways it would have worked at my table at least. I don't know if I would have invited that guy back.

This is supposed to be the WORST characters ever, not the most awesome!
slight leaning towards awful good in my opinion, but I am more concerned about beach ball good with respect to the deities mentioned above. The last thing golarion needs is to turn their good deities into laughably flawed time of troubles FR nonsense.
all I can say is watch outlaw star.
DO NOT WATCH BUBBLEGUM CRISIS 2040.
it's never too late for BSG...
But since you asked, it's always time for MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM.
Not wing. Not Seed. Not X. Not 00. The original, from the hand of Tomino-o-sensei and company themselves. Parts of it have NOT aged well, but it is an epic. I am interested in doing the hardest of hard core things and enjoying Gundam in chronological order- reading the manga, watching the anime, movies, OVAs, etc as they happened in the universe.
Couldn't have put it better myself.
The world we live in IS NOT that of Judge Dredd. The cops ARE NOT judge, jury and executioner all rolled into one- they are COPS.
We have had too many people of late die from offenses that they should have been rightfully ticketed or arrested for. Resistance should be futile, but not deadly, not in the ways we have seen it over the past months. Yes, cops put their lives on the line every day. One never knows when something is going to get ugly and potentially life threatening. But the people who have been killed lately presented only a minimal threat at best to the officer that ended up killing them. It would be different if they had a gun, or hell, even a knife. But the idea that they are big black and scary and the white cop is so *utterly helpless* in every way shape and form that they HAVE to shoot the person despite the other non-lethal weapons at their disposal is unacceptable. Forget the loss of life, it's also making THEIR OWN LIVES a living hell. I may not trust cops very much, or even like them, but I know when they fire a gun, they are accountable for each and every bullet they fire- and when they kill someone they end up living with the ramifications of that death for the rest of their own lives. We should not be putting people on the street, entrusting them with lethal weapons, only to have them use them in situations where it isn't warranted and/or break down when they DO have to use them or shoot themselves out of a job. There's something wrong with the way these cops are being trained, and I think the militarization/mechanization of the police force on a large scale is the main problem.
VI REIGNS SUPREME!!!!!!!!!!!!
What? It was fun, I played it with my wife a dozen times. It was fun having a 2 player game.
I need to..*ahem* research...x-2..Yeah, that's it, RESEARCH X-2. In slow motion.
I'm sorry to disagree with you here. I have no problem with Torag being more than a bit of a jerk to his enemies, and I read "scatter" to mean something other and considerably less than "genocide".
Also, I never realized just how game-breaking Gau can be in the early part of FF6 if you know what you're doing with Rages and take the time to track down the nicer ones.
I can't believe you didn't know that. I personally think it's so the fight with Ultros in the Operahouse goes well if you didn't level everyone appropriately(Ultros can kill everyone at that point in the game), but Gau is a true beast(LOL). My friend cracks him out every game to give him the Merit Award(may have changed in later version) so he can have the fight ability and then truly turn the game on its' head.
