Convergence IV, a gathering of net.goths from all over the area. It's
pretty cool bumping into people I know who don't live here.
First night featured a live show by Masochistic Religion. They're a band to miss. Very
loud and annoying boyz-with-guitarz band with the occasional use of a
*coffin* as a stage prop. Sheesh.
Just saw Legacy of Rage, starring Brandon "The Crow" Lee from 1986. It's a
pretty typical hong kong kung-fu/crime drama story, but it is kinda cool
seeing him being used this way... The film style, dialogue, and action
sequences are so different from how westerners do things, and the culture
differences are very noticable. Brandon gets to kick ass as usual. The
plot is a little far-fetched but that's not why people watch it, of
Biohunter, an anime from 1997, is an above-average anime in the genre of
"demon possessed people who fight other demon possessed people who
rape/kill/fondle with tentacles beautiful young women". Yah, it's
derivative. And this particualr movie has very strong Incredible Hulk
influences, but they also have a hand which walks around by itself a la
Aadams Family, and some really well-done scenery and monster battle
scenes. Oh well. Pass the crackers.
