Hello Dwellers and Welcome to the Basement...

So I had this idea for an image, of Ecto-1 sitting on a darken street... and so this was the end result of trying to bring that visual to life. This was created using paint.NET



Blue Seed: "I'm Fired Up! I'll Do It! Because I'm the Kushinada!!" (Talking Anime)

Hello Dwellers and Welcome to the Basement...

We're Talking Anime, and of course we're discussing episode seven of Blue Seed titled "I'm Fired Up! I'll Do It! Because I'm the Kushinada!!", which has a slightly different style plot as compared to the first six episodes 



QUICK NOTES Original Airdate: 11/16/1994  (English, 11/27/1999)The kidnap / ransom plot is certainly quite a different tale as compared to the monster of the week style episodes we have seen in the first six episodes (5 if you count the first two episodes as 1 story)The Kushinada project and how it relates to Momiji and her encounter with Orochi in the 2nd episode when it placed her in a ceramic field has some extra significance considering it comes into play hereHaving the Aragami disguise themselves as humans to achieve their goals adds a whole new ball of wax into the field, as gives more story telling optionsMomiji certainly was hell bent to find the kid, she really took it personally tha…

Hello Dwellers and Welcome to The Basement...
Another Live Stream on twitch is in the books, as it was back to the Star Trek Online and seeing the story from the Klingon perspective (or at least that of an Orion-Talaxian hybrid) as I take a LONG (and I do me long) look at Sphere of Influence, plus we do a few things like head off the Solanae Dyson sphere to get a briefing and also New Romulus to do some tasks on the planet.


QUICK THOUGHTS Since I was reading every single bit of dialog in Sphere of Influence that didn't have VO work, I noticed something that I don't think anyone brings up, that during the course of the mission, you find a log about New Romulus saying the Iconians have been messing with A'dranna and actually sabotaged the activation of the gate that was found... making me wonder if they didn't, would the gate have worked on its own with the geothermal power source?I do find if funny that even the Iconians are scared of taking the Dominion head onMadaran su…
