    That hallucination scene really got me though. I thought the guy had actually lived.

    I knew it was a hallucination as soon as he showed up. Not only was it thematically obvious (having something happen right as a character is about to die/black out is usually a sure sign), but the depressurization would have killed her almost immediately, and as she said, there's no way he would've been able to get all the way back. It threw me off a bit when he knew something she didn't, but whatever.

    Overall, yes, a very good movie. A nice realistic take on space, and a very thrilling and original concept.

    You're most likely a dual citizen at this point, so you can choose to identify with whichever. And either way, you can always say you're "from Kazakhstan."

    Iron Man, especially when played by RDJ. Batman close second.

    But if by "superhero" you mean "comic book hero with superhuman abilities," which neither Iron Man nor Batman have, then I'd say Armor. Even if she is rather minor, her power is really cool.

    I've only ever cared for two ships. Lyra+Bonbon (MLP) and WQ+WK (Homestuck).

    I thought David Tennant was Scottish not British, and he was the Doctor.

    David Tennant is Scottish as opposed to English. He's still British.

    Tobuscus is a terrible actor. He'd never make it 's where I discovered that he's a *terrible actor.*' class='bbc'>on TV, much less as arguably the most important interchangeable role in all of television.

    I've never had a problem showing it to people I don't know. Way I see it, if they like it, great; if they don't, I'll never have to interact with them again. I do, however, fear judgement from people I know, and especially my family. I feel like my family might see some theme or idea they don't like and both tease me about it and limit my artistic freedom.

    ?

    I don't actually remember whether that's right, but that's the only song I know that goes "da ba dee da ba dai."

    posted a message on What is better: Indie music or Mainstream music?
    Very rarely do I like something mainstream from this decade. I do like classic rock, which I suppose falls under mainstream, but I think I prefer electronica/trip-hop/electroswing. So indie for me, by a small margin.

    Since the OP mentioned videos, here are a few:

    Woman's A Devil and Brush Your Hair are the two songs by them that I'm really a fan of. They make decent electroswing, but I'm not all that fond of the vocalist's voice, to be honest.

    posted a message on Favorite song genre?
    Quote from _Kayo

    I tend to listen to electronic genres such as dubstep and chiptune but I basically listen to anything that sounds good, including classical and waltz.

    Fun fact: waltz isn't a genre, but just a key signature, and many songs outside of the realm of classical music are waltzes, such as Billy Joel's "Piano Man" and "She's Always a Woman," Tears For Fears' "Everybody Wants to Rule the World," and Pink Floyd's "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" and "Brain Damage."

    (Plus Caravan Palace's "Violente ' class='bbc'>Valse" and "Sydney")

    ;~; It's beautiful...

    I've never seen a "What's your favorite genre?" thread with electroswing as an option, let alone with it as the first choice of the OP! Good show, sir!

    I'd never heard of ProleteR before, and am sampling him right now (That's Life is good so far, especially because I've always been a Sinatra fan). Parov Stelar is good, but Caravan Palace is by far my favorite band ever (only one that has never made a song I don't like, which is really saying something), and I'm also a fan of Wax Tailor, 11 Acorn Lane, Tape Five, DJ Yoda, AlgoRythmik, Electric Swing Circus, and The Real Tuesday Weld, just to name a few.

    Oh! And besides electroswing, I like classic rock, swing, Big Band, and some scattered bits of electronica and pop.

    Edit: ProleteR did not disappoint, not by far. Thank you.

    posted a message on My Little Pony : FiM (All Pony-related things go HERE)
    Hey guys. I know I haven't been here in a while, and as word may have reached you, it's due to a sharp decline in my interest in anything MLP (in small part due to terrible decisions such as Twilicorn and EQG, though mostly just naturally declining interest). But I haven't cleared my dA watchlist of pony artists, because I do really enjoy seeing quality fanart. Especially of Octavia, who will always hold a place in my heart.

    On that note, does anyone remember the series of 2.0 ponies created by StickFigureQueen on dA? If not, here's every one of them as of yesterday:








    Well, after literally months of kindly bugging the artist, she has finally caved, and has produced this:

    And that was just so awesome, I felt it justified a temporary reunion.

    (Also, Vivid, you may be pleased to know that I've partially migrated to the Homestuck fandom)
