So, I've apparently lost my mind... How so? I started a new game on Pokemon SoulSilver... and started with Chikorita. For clarification, Chikorita and its evolutionary line are almost useless against most of the Johto Gyms, most members of Team Rocket, and ALL of your rival's team.

I like bacon. If you think you've lost your mind, keep in mind there are people who have spent billions of dollars for cans of artist poop. I recently learned this despite my appreciation of Duchamp's fountain. Evidently dookie is profitable.

Aww, no one caught the PBG reference?

Ahh, yes. I'm back. And I'm glad I was there. Because I somehow got a great idea while camping! Or then again, maybe I should be very afraid because I got a rather horrible idea while camping. You see, I have another manga in my head...

Odd, I've never heard of a peanut butter guacamole sandwich before. However, this idea for a manga intrigues me. Please share, you might find that we provide another source of inspiration. Weird ideas usually work.

@GabrielsThoughts: Actually, it's this guy.

Also, I started thinking of writing a harem manga. A really, really strange one. One with a concept so absurd that it may be more of a harem parody.

So, there's this guy who's lived in a household that isn't very fond of technology. So, now that he's finally moved out on his own, one of the first things he wants to do is purchase his first computer.

However, since he knows almost nothing of computers and has no access to the internet, he isn't very knowledgeable on how to go about this. Fortunately, he's able to buy a used computer pretty cheaply at the Black Market.

Everything seems to be working pretty normally, up until he attempts to connect to the internet. Because at that moment, a very strange girl has just popped out of his monitor... and another... and another... and another... and another...

What makes me think this would fall into the realm of harem parody specifically is because, rather than all the girls trying to get the attention of the same guy in the name of love, they all want to be his default internet browser.

That's right. All the girls in the harem are personifications of internet browsers. They also have superpowers and digital weapons. Hilarity ensues.

I also saw Pacific Rim last night. Best action film I've ever seen IN MY LIFE!!!

@Lugbzurg:

Well, I always wanted to know where pixar got the idea for "CARS." For some reason I foolishly assumed it as inspired by those chevron commercials.

The idea for the harem manga seems like a good concept, but the internet has been popular since the late 90's and I find it hard to believe somebody could know almost nothing about computers.

Then again I had my i Mac for six months before I knew there was more to it than a web browser. Granted all of my textbooks, pdf's, and production software were and still are on my other six computers.

I think what I like the most about your idea was that a magic computer with a holographic interface would/could have avatars for the individual web browsers and applications.

I can't speak towards the quality of Pacific rim. I haven't seen a good movie in theaters for a long while, "Contagion," "Argo," and "The Croods" being the last few I actually remember actually watching in theaters.

I have my doubts about whether or not Pacific Rim is any good because I wasn't a fan of Evangellion, or the recent G.I. Joe movies.

Granted, as a lifelong insomniac and MST3K watcher I occasionally enjoy Godzilla and all those similarly styled funny Japanese monster movies they aired on TBS. I very much enjoyed Cloverfield and other Sci-fi epics. I was probably one of the few that thought The Avengers and Transformers 2 and 3 were a horrible movie series...because they really were. The first "Transformers" movie was salvageable the others were not.

@GabrielsThoughts: At first, I didn't care about Pacific Rim in the slightest. I mean... giant mechas vs. giant alien monsters? Why would I want to see that? Well, then I saw MovieBob's review.
http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/escape-to-the-movies/7705-Pacific-Rim
That was actually kind of the point. No romantic subplot, no traitor story arc, no whining about the horrors of war and the moral ambiguity of killing creatures we know nothing about, no sex scenes, none of that unnecessary nonsense.

Pacific Rim is a film that exists to actually entertain its audience, rather than simply find another way to explain that the producer thinks life stinks.

Also, I've gotta hear this several more times. 'Scuse me.

@Jarkes: Because the concept, on its own, sounds like it would be very shallow and unintelligent, stomping in the footsteps of Godzilla and the like. I thought Pacific Rim would be stupid and forgettable. I was so wrong.

@Blazing_Cha0s:
Jack Chick is supposedly God's Editorial Cartoonist. I personally don't ascribe to his philosophy. Then again, I prefer to follow what Jesus taught and try not to get it confused with Peter, Paul, James, and Jude's bigotry.

Of course, I probably like Chick tracts for the same reason I like reading Children's bibles. It makes it easy to identify the the difference between the idea of God, the appeal to tradition, and why we need to change.

Some Children's bibles (new testament), in comparison to the living bible and the new international version, are excessively punitive, and pathologically disgusting to such ridiculous degrees it's a wonder they don't encourage atheism.

So it's entirely possible that what was meant for "evil" might actually do some good. However, since I consider myself a man after God's own heart, I can't bring myself to find faith in the words of a man filled with so much hate. Rage and ignorance I can understand.

As for recommendations the "adventure bible" and the "action bible" are top notch recommendations. The former for bordering on evil incarnate, and the latter for being a work of love. "Manga Messiah," is a good children's bible as well.

@GabrielsThoughts: I actually own Manga Messiah. I've been using it as a reference guide for the recent Sonic Future pages and it was also the first thing I reviewed on the Animé and Manga Introductory.

I think I might have received the "Action Bible" at some point in my life.

@Kurona: Tell that to the Poliwrath my Meganium KO'd (well, it was a Bayleef at the time, but still) by waking up on the turn immediately following the turn it fell asleep, using a Magical Leaf to interrupt the Poliwrath's Focus Punch, and landing a critical with that Magical Leaf.

It was Chuck's Poliwrath, btw.

@Kurona: You have a point. And I suppose I just got lucky with the "woke up immediately" thing. Still, I almost NEVER get that lucky, so it was pretty cool to me.

But I did end up nicknaming my Meganium "Steve" as a result of this. Since you're a fellow Chuggaconroy fan, you probably know what that's referencing.

...You know what I've never understood about Lugia? It learns a bunch of Water-type moves, and is found in a watery area. Yet instead of being Water/Flying like basic Pokemon logic would tell you, it's Psychic/Flying. And it didn't even learn any Psychic-type moves naturally until Generation IV.
