[gTV] C'est_la_V> I'm booooored
flame_SNIPER> Why, Minako-chan?
[gTV] C'est_la_V> There's nothing to do
@SpeedRcrX> DUDE
@SpeedRcrX> Hellsing OVA III came out
@SpeedRcrX> It was SO badass! They did the bit in the manga where Alucard goes down to South America and kicks ass!
[gTV] C'est_la_V> Really??
[gTV] C'est_la_V> That was COOL in the manga!!
@SpeedRcrX> Yeah
@SpeedRcrX> They improved the OVA a lot, much nicer backgrounds and stuff
@SpeedRcrX> the problem is that
@SpeedRcrX> The Audio background still sucks ass compared to the original anime. There are some bits that are nice, like the Orchestral bits at the end and during some scenes, but god dammit I wanted the trippy ultra-cool badassness of the original.
@SpeedRcrX> That's the only thing now stopping me from giving Hellsing the highest rating EVAR.
flame_SNIPER> Hmph
flame_SNIPER> Style never trumps substance. Haruka-san.
[gTV] C'est_la_V> You know what was cool, through??
[gTV] C'est_la_V> Last night I bought X-chan the MST3Ks of "300" and "Star Trek VI" and we watched them, it was great!!
@SpeedRcrX> Umm
@SpeedRcrX> Neko
@SpeedRcrX> MST3K never did those movies.
[gTV] C'est_la_V> True-- BUT
[gTV] C'est_la_V> The same three guys behind Mystery Science Theatre came up with a new idea based on the old idea called Rifftrax!!
flame_SNIPER> "Rifftrax"?
[gTV] C'est_la_V> Hai, Hai...
[gTV] C'est_la_V> Well you know how the beet of Mystery Science Theatre 3000 was talking over the movie with funny comments right??
@SpeedRcrX> Yeah
[gTV] C'est_la_V> Well what they did was, to avoid the hassle of tryign to license new movies, they just go ahead and amek the commentaries like you would for an alternate DVD commentary track, only funny!!
[gTV] C'est_la_V> And then you play them in sync with your own copy of the DVD
@SpeedRcrX> So basically, it's MST3K without the puppet segments or shadowy overlay over the picture
[gTV] C'est_la_V> Yup!! (though I miss the puppets )
[gTV] C'est_la_V> And they use their real names..
[gTV] C'est_la_V> Which isn't bad because Mike-san is still Mike-san, but now I have to pretend Crow and Servo are calling themselves "Kevin" and "Bill" for some reason
@SpeedRcrX> LOL
@SpeedRcrX> So where can I get these Rifftrax things
[gTV] C'est_la_V>
@SpeedRcrX> *loads*
@SpeedRcrX> Look at how many movies they've done
@SpeedRcrX> ... when did pearl forrester become HOT
flame_SNIPER> Huh

 @SpeedRcrX is looking on the bio page at Mary Jo Pehl

@SpeedRcrX> I just got that... you know... Pehl... Pearl...
flame_SNIPER> *shakes her head*
[gTV] C'est_la_V> Hmm I should have read the site properly last night...
@SpeedRcrX> Huh
[gTV] C'est_la_V> Disembaudio~
[gTV] C'est_la_V> I think he was the squeaky voice we heard during 300 a few times that scared the [BLEEP] out of us...
[gTV] C'est_la_V> Imagine a REALY high pitched voice suddently reading some lines with lots of mechanical reverb....
@SpeedRcrX> Freaky

C'est_la_V pasted:
To reassure consumers that the MP3 file is synchronized with the film, a fictional character named DisembAudio occasionally speaks a line in exact synchronization with the movie.[6][7] DisembAudio has also occasionally been known to join in on the riffing.
[gTV] C'est_la_V> Like... like.. the voice of "Pac-Man" in the Bloodhound Gang track where they have Pac-Man on crack
@SpeedRcrX> Man I have all kinds of problems with that track
[gTV] C'est_la_V> Like what??
@SpeedRcrX> He was obviously on speed or PCP or something
flame_SNIPER> ... What kind fo discussion are we having.
@SpeedRcrX> Dude I mean come on, he eats a pill and he starts tripping and getting SUPER STRONG
[gTV] C'est_la_V> Haruka-san makes an excellent point
flame_SNIPER> I'm not going to rank points in a discussion on what kind of drugs PAC MAN was on
[gTV] C'est_la_V> This is why you never have any fun, Rei-chan
