Yeah, I was just thinking actually, why would you even say that? If you were so ashamed of something, you'd just not associate yourself with it. :)

DBZ Season 3 (not the orange brick, but the season in general which was the intro to the FUNi/Faulconer era) and Dragonball Evolution.

I watch the dub from time to time for nostalgia's sake. Funnily enough it just gives me new stuff to bitch about, I should really stop watching it. When I finally think it can't get any worse I find another awful facepalm worthy exchange.

I find Cell's techno theme remix fairly catchy. I don't mind listening to it at all.


I'm sure there's more but that's all I can think of for now.
:lol:


See bold. :oops:

Sometimes when I feed my cat, I burst out with "CAT LOVES FOOD, YE YE YEAH!"

I love debating Funi VS Original with my friends when we're drunk.

Big Green and Malaysian dubs, fo sho.

Doing Chris Sabat Vegeta hurts so much, so I created my own! :D


I love talking like Vegeta! Can't really do the yelling stuff yet, I'm working on it, though :)

I do a spot of Chiaotzu as well...it's quite different from Vegeta's voice, contrary to popular belief :lol:

If anyone's interested in hearing some voices, me and my friend dubbed over some Vegeta/Nappa footage for fun.

Ah, What's up Mr. Earth Crisis. So you're edge, I'm cool with that. If you're not into drinking or other things, that's perfectly commendable, but I'd appreciate it if you didn't go all xFSUx YouthXCrew Hardline on me

I am a big fan of the American soundtrack for "the History of Trunks". That movie is what got me into the band Dream Theater and was a heavy inspiration for drumming. 8)

To this Day "Scenes from a Memory" is one of my favorite albums of all time.
...Wait what are you doing? Are you still reading this? I finished what I had to say, why don't you move on to the next post?

I don't really think that should count as a "guilty pleasure" though, Dream Theater is an incredible band.

A "guilty pleasure" is something that, if someone caught you doing and went "wtf", you'd be fumbling over yourself to explain.

well here it feels like a sin to like the american soundtrack over the Japanese audio.

Another one would be, I kind of liked Evolution. I had a lot of fun with it(for both right and wrong reasons).

Occasionally when I'm alone I will concentrate embarrassingly hard and try to 'power-up' or do the Kamehameha, in all seriousness.

Me and my friends continued to honestly believe that we were Saiyans until we were 14.

We were good at it too. We were way into Cooler at the time, so I used to mix corn starch and water to get that weird goo that can go from solid to liquid really fast, threw in a bunch of red and blue die, and bam! Instant Cooler blood. 8) We had mountains and shit to climb and battle in, it was epic. I didn't tell my friends about the fake blood stuff, so I made like 3 gallons of it, and threw it all around our mountain to surprise the shit out of them. Gooood times. :lol:

We tried to meditate and raise our power level like everyday too. :roll: Hehe.

Now it's just rewatching the parts of the series I own, and following the news. For some reason, that's still exciting to me. I feel old... dammit... Oh well... Eventually, the Dragon Boxes will be all I need to be completely satisfied as a fan of the series.
Can't you see? He's the man. Let me hear you applaud. He's more than a man! He's a shiny golden god!

Hah, when Gohan taught Videl how to fly. I honestly thought if you focused enough, you could possibly concentrate your chi in some form, and with practice and patience be able to do something with it.
