Instead of going to sleep like a sane person who has to work the next day, I skimmed-watched the first Eva rebuild movie I had downloaded right before leaving to see the second one. Yes, I hadn't seen the first one, but I was told it was very similar to the TV series. And it mostly was. Brought back memories (some not so good--like the whole Ritsuko and her mom sleeping with Gendo ick and Ritsuko's mom strangling kid Rei I...).
Now I kind of want to watch the TV series again. And watch other big mecha angst fest series, like Rah Xephon and Sokyu no Fafner. ^^;
Yuppie 911: Hilarious name for a rather dangerous and worrisome trend. Why don't the authorities just charge for unnecessary/accidental emergency calls? Im sure it's quite expensive to mobilize helicopters and trained personnel to "rescue" these people.
When I heard that some major studios are thinking of putting a lag of several weeks between when you can buy a DVD and when you can rent a DVD in order to help prop up sagging DVD sales, I immediately thought that illegal downloads would increase instead. Am I crazy to think this? Do the studios have a good idea?
