  1. What was the last film you watched?

    I think world cinema in general is great, it gives you an interesting peek into the psyche of different countries. It can give you insight into how people are living across the world or explain societal/political issues that would be otherwise be hard to understand. I think BJH is great at showing how a portion of South Korea lives, and visually show us the society that these people live in. In general I'm much more interested in Japanese cinema, but there's definitely great stuff that is coming out of pretty much all of Asia that I do enjoy watching through. Right now there's just so many great directors working out of Korea BJH, lee chang dong, hong sang soo, etc. But there are definitely just as many great directors spread across Asia like Koreeda, Sono, hou hsiao shen, wkw, etc.

    This happened to my buddy, like $4 in change and the tray that kept the change which he had to get another of for like $100 at a junkyard on top of windows.

    This may be my favorite film of all time. Just so much about it was spectacular. BJH nailed this one. Also every frame a painting did a great video essay on it.

  10. What Anime Are You Watching Right Now?

    Finally got around to seeing In this Corner of the World. What a film. I think it's easily one of the best animated features of the last decade. Sometimes it feels as if you're being pulled into Suzu's world, until reality yanks you back out. The sequence between Suzu and Harumi is heartbreaking, memorable, and unique. Katabuchi just shows his masterful hand in this. Gotta check out his other two films after this.

    just finished the new yuasa film, ride your wave. I really dug it, the story beats were fairly predictable, but the animation delivered in the usual yuasa fashion. still have the theme song stuck in my head.

  13. Pot of Counter Traps

    Yea even the "good" trap decks just can't keep up with Spyral, and that's not even considering the fact that most decks will have 3 evenly and 3 Lightning Storm in their side decks with IGAS.
  14. Pot of Counter Traps

    I feel like if you're going to play a deck like this you should be on Inspector Boarders, or other better protect the castle cards. Also do you just auto scoop to Spyral going 2nd? Because set 5 pass into the Spyral board seems like a really bad plan when you're losing 2 to Sleeper in the ep.

    As a kid growing up in Socal during the 00s. This fucking killed me. It's just so crazy. Especially living in the same area as him. Everyone in my city has a Kobe story, when he'd come to the ARC to practice, or that you were going to the same swim school as his kids. For us in Socal, Kobe and the Lakers brought people together. It didn't matter your race, religion, class, or age. Love him or hate him. He'd bring out the most passionate responses in people. He inspired a bunch of short ass asian kids who had no hopes of ever playing in D3 let alone the NBA to ball. On the court at recess and during lunch we'd pretend we were Kobe. We all wanted to be Kobe. Now that I'm older I can only respect his insane work ethic and his brilliant mind. The dude wasn't just a basketball savant, he was an intellectually curious dude. His reach was beyond basketball. He inspired me in how I live my life. Whenever things felt rough, I'd tell myself that Kobe wouldn't let that discourage him. So I chose to work my ass off just like he would. The mamba mentality can be reached by us all. And this is all for a person that's never met him, I can only imagine how his family is. I always felt like there would never be a celebrity death that got to me, but this was just too much. So to the mamba, thanks for everything. Socal mourns for you.
