I think there was one guy I knew at college who may have watched it but he wasn't a fan per se. Any other friends at college hadn't seen it. Tried to watch it with my housemates at university, no dice. Girlfriend at the time didn't want to watch it with me. Their loss!

    I'd be a hypocrite if I said I hate Google since I use Chrome and Android, but yeah, the search engine can be annoying so I feel your pain there. The situation on Bing isn't much better. OSN actually makes it to page three on DuckDuckGo but that search engine's only recently taking off. It's all such a pain in the ass, even if you invest some money into it. I take it you've tried advertising your business on social media?

    I'd totally listen to them privately. While I'm sure Starwind55 has a lot more to say about metal (if I recall correctly he's a fairly big fan) I do love some instrumental metal (or instrumental in general) so those songs sound awesome.

    Oooh, I didn't even know such a kit exists on Etsy. The XGP was my first 3D print. It's not actually my model as I found it on Thingiverse. I'll get a photo when I can but it turned out very badly. Glad ya like the star/dragon though. I always thought the dragon would make an excellent tattoo, so good luck with that! I'll be sure to let you know about the printer.

    There's this cel seller who's called silvrdrago or something like that. I think he gets cels en masse from Japan and resells them on eBay at stupid prices. I do have a few Outlaw Star cels but I didn't pay anything near the prices he charges. Merch guide is going on my to-do list!
    Merch guide could be a really good addition. Just something that spells out what a collection could be. Something that shows how many DVD releases there was, the blue rays, toys, etc. it could be helpful for old and new collectors, but also a guide to battle eBay pirates lol.

    Tattoo: Iíve got concepts worked up. Itís just finding the right person. Have seen two people so far but it was a waste of time.

    CASTER: yeah that Etsy set is pricey but very cool. Iím attempting to find another person to help right now but the overall cost for it will still be pretty high. I may have no choice but to pay the juice, this build might be more than I can do on my own. Found someone on Instagram last night...unpainted gun with no assembly and extra shells = $125. Which isnít bad, but the guy never made one before and I could break it while assembling it. At that point Iíd probably just snag one of those PVC ones for the collection and keep searching for help with the 3D one.

    SONGS: you send me an email and Iíll send them to you. They are super old and super unprofessional in many ways. All I ask is to not put them online. A copyright battle is the last thing Iíd want.

    GOOGLE: I use google a lot but I do not enjoy Google Adds at all. Iím a full time musician, so when a new album comes out my team usually tries to get me to use it. Itís never been a good investment. This could be based on a few factors, but even with other projects Iíve done it doesnít work out well. Maybe if I was a plumber or something it would be different.

    OTHER FAN BOYS: yeah Iíve only met one other person who enjoyed the show...but it was more of a passing thing. He wasnít a huge fan, he just knew it existed.

    Side note, I have a learning disorder in written expression. If I ever write something on here that confuses you, please just ask me to elaborate. Iíll be more than happy to.

    Hey Justin, hope you're doing well. I'm one of the guys on the manga crew & I try to make it to as many gaming / movie nights as possible (as my work & family schedule allows). It's really nice to have a new committed forum member show up! Our community is small but tight-knit. I look forward to chatting more with you on a movie night or in some threads around the forum!

    Hey Zemekis, nice to meet you. Iím doing ok...slow morning but Iím doing my best to keep motivated. Thank you for the warm welcome. Iím really happy to be here. Hopefully my contributions can be helpful to the group.

    I saw that you use STEAM for games, but Iím curious how do you guys facilitate the movie nights?

    I don't actually join in on the games since I don't buy digital copies of games nor do I enjoy playing on Steam, but I join in as often as possible for movies. I never watch films on my own so the group helps pressure me to catch up on things I wouldn't otherwise. To answer your question, Mantis owns a Plex server I believe. He can issue you a username/password I believe (not even sure if you need his invitation to create an account? It's been so long. He can explain), and then he will create a room where we can all see the video being shared. It's a nifty system but it can't handle too much stress which has been an issue several times. I think the kinks are worked out as of our last viewing though.

    Wow, Iím only starting to understand how much Mantis puts into all of this. Amazing! Nifty indeed. What a fun way to get people together! Knowing that we are all fans of an anime, Iíd be curious to see what types of movie suggestions get thrown around.

    I hear ya on steam. My home computer is all work/music based. I have some video games here but not enough time to invest these days. Plus most modern games really annoy me, lol.

    The movies are all over the place, come to think of it. We've done cheesy 80's movies, horror, artsy stuff, and for a while now i've been pushing for Tremors 2.

    Wouldn't it make more sense to check out the first Tremors before moving on to the sequel 0_o. I'd love to revisit both movies as I haven't seen either of them in years. Yeah, when it comes to movie nights, we pretty much just throw out suggestions and then we go with it. We just kind of go with the flow for the most part. I don't recall any of us having any strong disagreements over which movies to watch. When you join us, we're all ears if you have anything in particular that you want to watch.
