Okay, cool! I'll check it out! I don't mind watching things online, really. That's how I watch all my anime and how I watched Dr. Horrible originally. I jumped on the Whedon bandwagon really just this past year, so I had to get it off YouTube. My sister introduced me to Buffy (which I'm still not done with; finished season 6 last night!), then friends introduced me to Firefly, then I introduced my sister who then became interested in Dollhouse, who showed it to me, then I watched Dr. Horrible and now I just have to finish Buffy and watch Angel!
I've never really gotten into Fruits Baskets, I don't know why. Never really appealed to me. And I've never actually heard of the others you mentioned, I'll check them out too! (NOTE: I'm more of an anime appreciator than an actual anime junkie.)
And I'm going to start watching Dr. Who after I finish Buffy. That's the one thing I'm embarrassed to say I've missed out on in the nerd culture. I've turned from Newbie Geek into Cultured Geek in the past year, since going to college really, but I'm still learning, haha.
Also, much appreciated. I'm glad you like my writing!
excellent. I jumped on the Whedon bandwagon a year ago too! my Dad introduced my siblings and me to Buffy first, then I watched Firefly and Doctor Horrible, and I’m going through Angel right now :] haven’t seen Dollhouse, though. I’ve heard mixed things on it, so I’m sorta still figuring out if I want to. your thoughts on it?
yeah, Fruits Basket is a bit odd. took me a few episodes to get properly hooked. what I like most about it is a) the story b) the characters and c) the animation is lovely. (…I just listed the most basic reasons to like an anime ever. aheh. oops.) I’m not much of an anime junkie either, I learn about most of them from my friend who is very much an anime junkie. he’s insane, he does nothing else with his life but read manga and watch anime. (which is sorta useful for me ^^)
Buffy > Doctor Who. it’s just sorta true. I mean, some of the Doctor Who episodes will be AMAZING, and I adore the Doctor, (mainly the one played by David Tennant) but I will always love Whedon’s stuff more.
don’t get me wrong, I’m a total Whovian. seen all of Doctor Who to date and love it, but.. (plus, Spike’s not in Doctor Who. major downfall. ;] )
geeks rule. ^^ we have the best tv shows/movies/comics/books/EVERYTHING. aheh.
Okay, I'm a little embarrassed to ask this, but...
I'm totally on the anime and Joss Whedon bandwagon, and I love to cook and am a total geek, and obviously love art. But I've never actually heard of Newsies, and I've seen you post a lot about it recently. Could you clarify what that is for me, please?
Also, while I'm at it, what are your top few favorite anime? I'm actually more of a manga person myself, but I really like FMA (I finally finished reading the series after years of meaning to, but I've always been a huge fan of the original anime), Death Note (yeah, I know, unoriginal...), and Code Geass. And I like The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya for kicks and giggles, my guilty pleasure.
Newsies is my very favorite movie, on the newsboys strike of 1899. it’s a musical and is pretty much the most brilliant thing ever. it’s on youtube if you don’t mind watching things illegally. (I sorta had to get over that when Doctor Who came back. aheh.)
my favorite animes so far are Soul Eater, (which I haven’t finished, but LOVE so far. so I’m gonna trust it.) Fruits Basket, 5cm, annnnndddd… FMA I s’pose. tis fantastic.
I STILL need to watch Death Note. I’m so mad at myself for not watching it.
In the sciences, there’s really only one way to approach things, most everything has already been discovered about it, and when someone tries something new they’re reprimanded until many others try it and get the same results. But with art, everything’s completely and utterly original. It’s the…
WOW, THAT DIDN’T WORK AT ALL… REWRITING THE MESSAGE. HEY GANG! THIS IS KATE AKA HOOHAA/QUEENOFNEWYORK/AHHHKATE! JUST SAYING THAT I HAD A SPLENDID NIGHT WITH YOU ALL AND I QUITE ENJOYED THE LIVESTREAM REUINION. LET’S KEEP IN TOUCH! PERHAPS MAKE A NEWSIES RP? EH? YEEAAHHH
HEY, REMEMBER THAT ONE ATTRACTIVE MAN WHO WE WERE ALL LIKE “OH HEEEYYY!!!” TO BUT HAD NO IDEA WHO HE WAS? THAT STILL MAKES ME LAUGH.
THIS WAS AWESOME :D
the attractive guy ruled. ^^ (I’m TigerScott, by the way.)
This movie has been a part of my life forever. Newsies is not only a heartfelt and ingenious classic, but it is one that anyone and everyone can relate to. We all love and adore these characters for their camaraderie on and off the set. I have yet to see another movie have a reunion like this….
I love meeting all of these wonderful people through a wonderful movie, with a fantastic crew of people ^^
