[15:25] * @Dr_Xadium sneaks up behind Minako and gives her a big hug ♡
[15:25] <C'est_la_V> ♡
[15:25] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Gah can we please stop these damn PDAs please :P
[15:26] <@Dr_Xadium> Bleh, I'm wishing my precious Minako-sama a happy early Birthday
[15:26] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> (nasal) "My precious Minako-sama" (normal) Blah you sound like a wuss
[15:27] <@Dr_Xadium> Hmph. If I was even remotely interested in the likes of you I'd be enthused at the prospect of your giving me a hug in the next few seconds.
[15:27] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> The f[BLEEP]k would I be hugging you.
[15:27] * @Dr_Xadium holds out a slew of tickets to Mamoru Oshii's _Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence_
[15:28] * --=[ SpeedRcrX ]=-- pushes Neko aside and hugs the Doc
[15:28] <C'est_la_V> _;
[15:29] <@Dr_Xadium> As an early birthday present to my lovely wife and to the rest of you for coming back from... wherever it was you were, I present these tickets ^_^
[15:29] <C'est_la_V> (pouts) Is this my only present?? ^_^
[15:29] <@Dr_Xadium> You'll get more later this week ^_^
[15:29] * C'est_la_V grins
[15:29] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Kickass! When do we go?
[15:29] <@Dr_Xadium> Now
[15:29] * @spiritflame wants to go too
[15:30] * @Dr_Xadium has a ticket for too "Sorry for leaving you behind on that engagement cruise"
[15:30] * @spiritflame bows
[15:30] * @spiritflame sets everyone away: Ghost in the Shell 2
[17:16] * --=[ SpeedRcrX ]=-- -tachi are back
[17:16] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> DAAAAMN.
[17:16] <FireFly_9> As usual, Oishii provides a visual and philosophical feast for the mind...
[17:17] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> By that she means the mindf[BLEEP]k quotient is high
[17:17] <FireFly_9> Bah, the plot was straightforward enough, the few convolutions there were were a logicla consequence of the nature of the reality inhabited by the characters.
[17:17] <C'est_la_V> That movie was GREAT!!
[17:18] <@Dr_Xadium> Yes, whereas the plot was simple, it seemed more fleshed out than the first movie, in some sense, exploring what it means to be concious and to have conciousness as opposed to the first movie, which explored the nature of what life was and what was truly "alive".
[17:19] <FireFly_9> Interesting to note the Ghost in the Shell: Standalone Complex designs were used for this film, even though it stood as a sequel to the first movie.
[17:20] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> This could have been a regular episode of GITS: SAC, but the visual treat man... this movie blows every other anime I have ever seen AWAY.
[17:20] * C'est_la_V is listening to: Yoko Kanno & Origa - rise [264 kbps]
[17:21] <FireFly_9> The "Data City" to the north was especially well done, with the juxtaposition of the artificial "seabird" like aircraft and the real seagulls quite interesting.
[17:22] <// J_Daito //> I did notice a character design change... the old ba[BLEEP]rd's hair wasn't so poofy
[17:22] <FireFly_9> "Old Man" or "Monkey" if you go by the manga.
[17:22] <// J_Daito //> Bah Aramaki is an old ba[BLEEP]rd That's all there is to it
[17:23] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> The only sucky thing is that I figured out how it was all done because I remembered the SAC (or was it the manga?) plot the movie turned out to be based on
[17:24] <C'est_la_V> Yeah, but there's a horrible secret there... if you think about *what* the androids were used for, and then who was controlling them...
[17:24] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Damn. Makes the subtitle "innocence" all the more messed up.
[17:25] <C'est_la_V> Yeah but the DOLLS were copies of that consciousness... so every time... it was like....
[17:25] * C'est_la_V is trying not to drift into spoiler turf
[17:26] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Anyway this movie rocked, it needs to be seen on the big screen, the small screen WILL NOT DO IT JUSTICE
[17:27] <// J_Daito //> Don't go all gushing all over yourselves now, it was a decent film if you can get over the fact that BEAT COP TOGUSA can quote the bible and french philosophers and the buddha and such without batting an eyebrow
[17:27] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Yeah, it's like ME being able to do it. Dumbass.
[17:28] <// J_Daito //> What is EVERYBODY there a damn philosopher?!
[17:28] <@Dr_Xadium> If you had a cyberbrain, you'd probably remember all the philosophy you were ever exposed to, as long as you didn't delete it....
[17:29] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> LOL I would
[17:29] <FireFly_9> Dare I ask why, Haruka-poppa?
[17:29] <// J_Daito //> She'd be storing Pr0n on it.
[17:29] * --=[ SpeedRcrX ]=-- coughs
