Re: Fight the Future 18 - How I Live Now

@Daniel You hit the nail on the head. It's only crazy to us because it is happening to people it isn't "supposed to" happen to now. Always good to be reminded that our experiences aren't universal. Maybe that is part of what makes YA dystopias so interesting. They are visions of another wo...

Re: Fight the Future 18 - How I Live Now

I wonder if this story is taking themes and situations from a lot of different wars and violent episodes. I agree that the Second World War was certainly an influence, especially with the setting being English countryside, but the pile of bodies at the boys' training camp sounded like some genocidal...

Re: Improvements [commodoreHUSTLE]

Re: LRRcast - Who Needs a Topic

There's really an alley named for Fan Tan? I did a research project in LA on crime records from the late 19th to early 20th century and almost all of the arrests of Chinese people were for Fan Tan. I wonder if it was legal in Victoria. I've always wanted to go up there for research, or for...you kno...

Graham, I had the same birthday experience in the UK. I turned 21 in London while on junior year abroad from the US. Fortunately some friends from the states were also in Europe and they came to celebrate with me. However, all my UK friends didn't quite understand the monumentality of the event. I f...

Re: What songs get stuck in your head/get other songs out?

I was camping and mentioned that I saw a robin outside the tent. My friend asked, "Was it a rockin' robin?" That song has been in my head all freakin' day.

Re: USAires, Go See this Film or Studio Ghibli Will Close

Anyone know when it is coming out in the US? I can't find a date.

Also, why the hell is this the first I'm hearing of this?! I live in LA and we are saturated with bloody Tron posters (what a tease) and yet we don't get anything about this gem? No fair.

That video was awesome. Not only do I love the subject matter, but brilliant comedic timing from everyone. I especially liked the parallel raising of the swords.

Maybe you have to be in the right mood to watch a movie like Blade Runner, like you have to be in the right mood to read Heart of Darkness. Otherwise, they seem dreadfully boring. To me, Blade Runner seemed like the type of movie where you needed to attend a discussion section afterward to fully und...
