    Hollywood, baby

    well, yea, but the way they do it, as I wrote earlier (and gave examples) is cut out key stuff (because otherwise it'd be obvious) and you get a soulless, 4kids film and this is why Hollywood advertising strikes a nerve: 'legendary director' 'critically acclaimed feature' 'unparalleled skills' 'world class actor' they're masters of BS, but since everyone is bs-ing, it should be ok, no? but put world class BS on top of 90% copy-paste and you get....me ranting

    Some would say it's impossible, but it's not so much about being original as it's about not being a 90% copy (the 10% left is simply you trying to disguise stuff). It's like you're given an assignment in biology class, you take a paper from some site, modify it a bit and read it to the entire class. Nobody's asking you to be original, how could you, you're effin 15 and your interests lie elsewhere...but what you're doing is moonshining. Yes, the Bible was written under Buddhist influence, or rather, the Bible is a retelling of Buddhism, mixed with the local creeds. But the thing is, th
  3. I was thinking of holding the last games at fixed hours, as to give the ones in the race for highest total score a fair chance to solve their duel for supremacy. Demonic and Kaya, what hour is most convenient for you to attend the game at? (it can be any, before fyrd's event, in the morning etc)
  4. 4leafclover Desc: gives the 4leafclover mark to those surviving a hit with less than 10% vitality (don't know how to write the param, it gives a 50% chance of ignoring damage from attackers for the next 5 rounds; a, e)

    That's very true, the way these things operate is revolving around money only, and that's why things will change only when people like me and you will say 'we want some good stuff, we're not gonna pay a cent anymore for crap. i can do crap myself, tyvm'. the way is boycott and i'm doing it already (i'm also spreading hate, so i'm doing a little more). i don't think too big to fail businesses should exist, i think often you have to burn the grass to get better produce next year burn hollywood? nah, let it freefall

    Rehash for money, copy plots for money, either way it's 'not sweating for money'. Also, if I don't care about the Star wars franchise, i won't be giving them any money. They're mooching off their long-life host. And why do people want a rehash, anyway? It's like trying to chase back that feeling you had soo long ago - you'll never have that again. Try something new, don't delve deeper into the nostalgic past. Haven't seen any of those two, they sound interesting, but not my cup of tea.

    same here. you can get a revelation in the dumbest of places or talking to the dumbest of people. read a book on Greek culture written for kids, got three revelations just by thinking about it. BUT! what a frickin' pain also, at some point, if you value yourself, you will limit contact with idiots

    Disagree with both. The fact that samurai Jack is the best action cartoon just shows you how pathetic the industry is. Don't get me wrong, but can't we make action productions that are not based on manga written 30 years ago? As for plagiarism in other countries, I'll make my point in a jiffy. My problem with Hollywood copying the Japanese is the fact that they're dooming you to be forever 12 (mentally). Let's take Mononoke (series). In it, this guy is roaming the land, killing these evils that are born from human emotions. To do that, he has to determine the form, the origin, the f

    Yea, these are the thoughts that don't let me sleep in peace, but...i watched a film yesterday and was left with one question: how much of Hollywood is American and how much Japanese? I just have to know, because it seems they've copied the Japanese for over half a century, since the conquering of Japan, and I've arriving at that conclusion only now. This is how grand is the deception. When I first saw some impressionist paintings, I thought 'da F is this?'. Made no sense. Then it was explained with big words and I believed it. Then, much later, I heard they've been seeing Japanese art (w
  10. ...ok... (don't wanna say something dst would say)
  11. The riddle is (in) the poem itself. It's often that when reading something, you discover it means something else than you thought of, if you read between the lines.

  17. That was a great summary, thank you. Because of my shortcomings in making this quest (which had a very specific purpose that I failed to achieve), I have asked Chewett to sponsor the full rewards to all participants. It wasn't all bad, I guess, but I woke up looking particularly terrible this morning, which means if you drag quests for hours...*they*'re not the only ones who are going to feel that. Lesson learnt
  18. Not much decoration here, but I'm of the opinion you don't need much to get a party going. Just lay a blanket, open the picnic basket that contains wine and bacon and just enjoy...this is a chill place to wait (for years) for those MP3s to direct them to the spear&halberd rack, teach them to use the whetstone and everything.
  19. no worries, if i waited yesterday to run my game (and it was worth it) for the max amount of participants, i will do it today too
  20. Today, in the evening, after or before Fyrd's (we'll see), we're doing this little play. I've attached the so-called map we shall be using, but the details of each room will be disclosed at the time of the event. I'll meet you there!
  21. Sign me up. Imagine if I lost (win) in this one...it would be ironic.
  22. I'll take this opportunity to warmly welcome all to Marind Bell, where for the next couple days you will be able to listen to minstrels singing about love and war (a.k.a. I will be posting link to various music pieces with the theme knights&maidens). I encourage visiting the more secluded areas. Love and battles. Epic battles, battles of dominance, battles of attrition, battles of retribution. Fiery love, withering love, useful love, used love. In this theme is the following riddle/puzzle, entirely a forum quest (hence the submissions will be by forum PM, to yours truly). Fastest corr
  23. That's 10 days from now, but...maybe from 4-5 p.m. server time
