    Ratpadz XT

    Another Ratpadz thread to watch! Got mine from the 2011 [H] show in Dallas. There was a tall stack of them and I got two. Shoulda grabbed the lot and bolted.

    Is this UPS dead or is it just the batteries?

    When the UPS is fully charged and you pull the power cable, does the connected gear stay on? If it doesn't the battery is no more. I got four years out of my last UPS, and it powered a 4bay NAS, router, modem and switch. (850VA) It was a Cyberpower too, and I couldn't locate a replacement...

    Cowboy Beebop live action at Netflix!

    Haven't watched Macross, but I have almost all of her CB and GiTS:SAC discography. The NBebop soundtrack lines up pretty well with the 98' stuff. There are some new versions of the 98' themes. The new stuff is good but a some of it is short cues and brief themes.

    At least I got new Yoko Kanno album out of it.

    Cowboy Beebop live action at Netflix!

    There is a lot to like. I'm happy with the principal actors. It's obvious they get the characters, even if the writers don't. And the visual aesthetic / look is better than I expected from an anime that's so visually distinctive. My three lingering complaints with Netflix Bebop- Viscous and...

    Cowboy Beebop live action at Netflix!

    Half way through. Like it a lot so far. Feel the prinicpal cast is perfect. Art direction and music are really nice. And it's a blast to be in Yoko Kanno's space again. The original music is pretty good. The rest is callbacks to 98'. But I'm at odds with the new series re-telling the stories...

    Geek trolling? They dropped the WOPR launch code from War Games too.

    One of my framed vinyls is Symphonic Suite Yamato, complete with OBI. I grew up on Star Blazers in the early 80s. (in a lot of ways I was crazier for it than SW/ST) But it wasn't until the late 90s that I discovered SBY and started collecting the BGMs. When they rebooted in 2012 with SBY2199...

    My Anime Soundtrack collection is literally 75% Yoko Kanno. (GitS:SAC and Bebop) the rest is HIroshi/Akira Miyagawa (Space Battleship Yamato/ SBY2199)

    Cowboy Beebop live action at Netflix!

    I'm glad she's only re-using 10% of the 1998 score. The promos have been recycling the original so much I was afraid there was no new music. But to be honest, I haven't heard any of Kanno's younger stuff since Ghost in the Shell: Solid State Society. (2006) If you've ever watched DVD extras of...

    I really want to know how they'll translate this scene to live action. On this, all hope depends.

    There are scads of female manga artists that draw proportional girls w/o the "male gaze" attributes and the peculiar camera positions. And a lot of those are produced anime OVAs. "Almost all Japanese animation is produced with hardly any basis from observing real people. you know. It's produced...
