Re: Prominance of Beta in Anime Tape Trading

Thanks for answering - interesting to see that tape trading was almost always a VHS affair here, even in the 80s when I suspected there was a bit more parity between the two formats. There was never really "parity" between the formats. Beta was pushed as a better reproduction option, but ...

Re: What are you Watching?

I'm now half way through ANOTHER Evangelion movie on Amazon which apparently is the 4th.

It's in english (ugh - I'll take subtitled anyday) and seems to be some fresh material. I just say Rei explode by the way, head first. That's a new one.

Re: What are you Watching?

I've been watching Neon Genesis Evangelion. It certainly was interesting with the really weird looking "Angels" who were attacking.

A bit too much youth drama for my liking, but I got through the whole show.

I think I liked Cowboy BeBop (Live Action) better.

Well, I'm still grounded, so I missed this.

Re: The 1976 New York Star Trek Convention aka DisasterCon

There are trailblazers in every field.

Did the convention go well? It would depend on who you asked.

I've attended dozens of conventions. Some were run better than others.

They all shared the same love of the subject.

Did you attend this convention?

Re: Live Action Robotech - Not Dead?

Ugh. I worry about stuff like this.

Tobey McGuire as Rick Hunter? NOPE. That would be awful.

This needs some fresh face - the Tom Cruise from Risky Business of 2022.

I agree, the CGI changes to bring back the dead are creepy. Who thought Governor Tarkin looked good? He looked plastic.

Re: Star Blazers And The Start Of A Fannish Journey

Interesting! This was before I discovered anime (I was a Robotech convert myself) and once I figured out where to get some (Wyvern's web in Florida) and could afford it ($100 and up for a VHS import tape), I started buying. This is before it hit the mainstream, and you could get it at hobby shops an...

Re: Gall Force - Your thoughts

Honestly, I found the follow on series to be a bit pre-programmed with the same basic lineup (and even mecha designs) between the Solenoids and Paranoids. The first series in my mind really set the tone. Each new OVA built off the previous one for a consistent storyline. So I'd suggest watching the ...

The clock of life ticks on.

At some point, all of us are on our last tick.

We seldom know when that will be.

Godspeed.

Re: Gall Force - Your thoughts

Good observation.

I really like Eternal Story. I just about wore out that VHS tape I played it so much.

Stardust war was my next favorite - I used to have that on LD but when my LD died, I had to buy the DVD collection. The resolution is good either way, but the LD played soooo well.
