i like the sound of this! my favourite season would have to be winter. i like the cold and the snow a lot, and i get the feeling of everything around me being much calmer, quieter, and more cozy. never enjoyed the warmer months much, i think the whole thing has to do with the amount of people out and about in a given season. i like solitude, i guess.
what is your favourite band, sushi roll?
Led Zeppelin, ever since I first heard them.
I hear a lot of different music and I'm always finding new music, just like everyone else. (I just don't want you to get the wrong idea that I'm some old fart or rocknroll kiddo), I don't know if it's nostalgia, but I really love their sound and, ignorant as I am of music, I consider their sound quite novel.
What's your favorite color palette, sushi?
I'd say aquatic palette (the bluish tones always fascinate me!) is my favorite color palette. It's just so easy in my eyes and refreshing. Hard to describe it in words, but it's… just really beautiful to me. Sometimes I like drawing in pastel palettes too. Overall, I just like color palettes that are easy in the eyes since my eyes are pretty sensitive.
What's your favorite wildlife animal, sushi?
They really make me uncomfortable in real life, but I'm in awe of woodlice, particularly the pill woodlouse that can curl up into a little ball. I think it's amazing how many legs they have and that they just look like tiny armadillos.
What's your favourite video game console, sushi?
My favorite video game console would have to be the Playstation 2. I have fond memories of booting up Dynasty Warriors and grinding out missions after school with my older brother. I remember the time we grinded out a single mission at least twenty times to increase the max HP stat. I still play video games with my brother, but moreso 1v1 fighting games now.
What's your favorite novel, sushi?
The Lord of the Rings. It was one of the first "grown-up" books that I got into as a kid, and everything about it is just beautiful.
What's your favorite memory, sushi roll?
Hard to pick out a specific memory but if I had to choose it would be me laying in a forest clearing on a winter night visiting my friends who lived out in the country. It was pitch black except for the sky, full of starts, constellations and even galaxies. Its a real shame that can't be seen in the city.
What's your favourite dessert, sushi?
I will go with ice cream, but it really depends on its quality. The gap between good and just mediocre ice cream is enormous.
What's your favourite Pokemon, sushi?
I never got into Pokemon, but Squirtle is cute.
What's your favorite comic (strip, book, or manga), sushi?
That would be El Eternauta. I am not big into comics but that one really stuck with me for many years. It's dramatic, eerie and romantic and beautiful and everything in between. I would gladly recommend to anyone, even to someone who doesnt like comics.
Next sushi, here's a hard one. Your favorite childhood memory?
The best one that comes to mind is sitting on a couch in my tiny little local library reading a book while a spring breeze is blowing through the window.
What is your favourite joke, sushi?
The one, that completely catches me off guard, suddenly turning my mood and letting me lose all tension, when I feel angry or anxious.
What is your favourite season?
It would definitely have to fall and for good reason. I like the fall for those cold afternoons where the leaves on the trees have gone orange/brown and the sky cloudy/dark; those days are always silent since many people man of tastely stay home but they remind me of my childhood and the few times me and my friends would hang out even when it was cold and there was nothing to really do. I miss those days and every so often the sky would get cloudy and for a split-second im reminded of those amazing memories.
whats your favourite food, sushi roll?
ironically my favorite food is sushi! had some crab roll today for dinner, it was pretty good :)
what's your favorite drink, sushi roll?
cawfee! Cold or hot, it smells nice, keeps you awake and you can add cinnamon, cocoa, or cream to it.
What's your favourite board game?
Android:Netrunner, it's a really cool cyberpunk card game where each side plays really differently. One person plays as the hacker trying to get into a corporation's servers to steal their secret plans while the corporation player does their best to keep the runner out while they try to make their plans happen.
What country would you like to visit the most one day, sushi?
While I've been there before, I'd love to return to Italy someday. The weather was amazing, the cities and towns alike were beautiful, the cuisine was top-notch. On top of all that, I love history and it was amazing to see such old architecture, both Roman and Christian.
What's your favorite anime, sushi roll?
(Sorry, forgot to add the question)
What's your favorite piece of clothing that you own?
A light blue denim jacket. I own it for more than 15 years, I can't remember exactly. It's just so perfect for me and comfortable, I can't find another jacket like this. Unfortunately, in recent years it became so worn out it may be unfixable. Like, a quarter of the back area needs to be patched or resawn, plus it was made from fairly thin denim, which doesn't help the case. I don't know how long it's gonna last anymore.
What's your favourite strong booze?
What's your favorite beer?
My dad's homemade stout.
What's your favourite monster, sushi?
Hmm maybe not the right answer but Im a big fan of the idea behind Attack on Titan. The idea of having a primordial fear of whatever lies outside of the borders by which you are surrounded, it adds more to your life and shapes how you value it. So I would say my fav monster is a great big human that eats ppl.
hey sushi roll, whats your favourite subject in school?
History, especially Ancient Egypt and naval history.
Hey sushi, what's your favorite pet?
Definitely cats. I fucking love them.
What's your favorite music genre?
Probably Punk, or maybe 90's Pop/Rock I love bands like Matchbox Twenty, Smashing Pumpkins, and Nirvana.
What's you're favorite TV series sushi?
The only tv shows I like are star trek, especially TNG and DS9. They go really deep into the cultures, politics and philosophies of lots of different worlds and individuals. I feel like I get wiser every time I watch it. Star trek thread anyone?
What's your favourite fictional world sushi roll?
The world of Hakumei to Mikochi. It's cute and peaceful.
What's your favourite pastry?
What is your favorite holiday?
Christmas because I get the day off and it's in winter !!
What's your favorite place to visit?
On a regular basis, I don't go out often. But outside of that, Toronto is pretty perfect me, being a big city whilst also being easy to navigate. It also is quite pretty at times, in its own way.
Based on beauty alone though, Switzerland. Went there with scouts once, and it was really the first place that really felt stunning to look at, being in this massive crater surrounded by golden mountains, with lush forests and these beautiful little villages with German architecture dotted around the area.
Forgot about my question, shit. What's your favourite book?
Gulliver's Travels was a good book for me, I liked it, it fascinated me especially chapter 3.
What is your favourite manga?
Liar Game, it's about a couple people who get roped into playing a cruel series of games of deception, and how they use the power of lies for good.
What's your favorite day of the week?
Recently every day just blends together, but normally either Monday or Friday. Friday because it's the end of the week, Monday because it's a new beginning, and I like my job.
What's your favorite smell?
I love the smell of fennel seeds. Toss some in hot oil and the whole kitchen smells like it. A beautiful earthy smell.
What's you're favourite quote?
"If you get the chance to shut up, dont miss it"
Although i use the directly opposite of its intended meaning i hold it dear to reflect on how i was in the past, also its THE quote from my dad, he said it pretty often, telling the story of how a manager told him
What's your favourite album sushi?
Jonathan Coupon Solid State. I love so many of the transhuman lyrics, and the music itself. "Dance like they're watching you, cause they are watching you!"
What's your favorite physical activity, rollsushi roll?
I love playing drums, which is pretty physical, but that's not the reason I like it.
As far as things I actually like for the physicality, maybe playing Just Dance? I've only played it a few times, and I don't actually even own any of the games, but it's also the only thing that's ever actually given me a runner's high.
What's your favorite musical instrument?
What's your favourite way of transportation?
Boats, I've only been on them a couple of times though. I like the idea that the sea could topple it at any moment, I guess.
What's your favourite ancient civilisation, sushi roll?
Mine would have to be the Trypillia culture way back in ~4000BC from modern day Ukraine. They had some of the largest cities in the world at the time, especially noteworthy since that part of the world isn't known for particularly large cities. They also regularly burnt down their settlements for unknown reasons.
What's your favorite way to cook/eat potatoes?
You boil them until they're done, with the skin on, let them cool. Then cut them in cubes or slices (with the skin on), and golden brown them in a cast iron pan over high heat. Dip in a sauce of your choice. I usually cut into slices and eat them with ketchup.
What's your favourite gaming console?
my favourite is the ps vita. ive always loved handheld consoles mostly because growing up with two siblings meant i never got to use the tv consoles much. i feel like th ps vita is the ultimate handheld, its not too big, there's 1 (touch)screen and the touch receptors on the back are also lots of fun.
whats your favourite sport, sushi roll?
I enjoy football/soccer. It might be the boring answer, but the simplicity of how the basic game is played jives with me a lot, and there's less focus on quick action than a lot of other sports. It's still not a sport I'd like playing, but I don't really like playing sports in general unless biking, hiking, and the like count.
Surprised this one hasn't been asked yet, what's your favourite sushi?
I like that onigiri with the slimy stringy seaweed in the middle.
What's your favourite thing to sing sushi roll?
I like mumbling nonsense for no-lyric songs, which could also go in that embarassment thread.
What is your favorite non-alcoholic beverage besides water?
Strawberry milkshakes are delicious, I don't have them often but it's always a treat.
What's your favourite sweet, sushi?
Plain cheesecake, I guess. I like not-really-sweet sweets in general. My version of french toast is close second.
What's your favourite western adult cartoon?
The Tragedy of Man https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0eSdOPcHum8
What is your favorite computer, sushi?
That's really hard!! I *love* the iMac g4 (the one with the dome and the neck) a lot, and also the Thinkpad x200 for being such a tank. But I think that the Pinebook Pro is going to have to win, because I really like the ideals behind it as well as being a really decent laptop ^^
What's your favourite city, sushi?
good taste - I've got an x200t & pinephone :)
my favourite city is montreal. pretty, cheap, good food, a little antisocial
what's your favourite cocktail, sushi? I'll make it!
I call it the Russian Russian… it's 4 parts Vodka to 2 parts Vodka… I just like Vodka
I'll ask the same question, seeing as I kinda feel like I hijacked this answer - what's your favourite cocktail sushi? Me and 7732 will make it!
Is it the Beta?
I preordered a pinephone about 2 months ago and havent heard anything about a ship date….
haha, that works! cheers~>>7747
I have the braveheart edition from january. community edition should ship soon, updates here: https://forum.pine64.org/showthread.php?tid=9942
The Vita is great.>>7732>>7746
Make yourself some Gin Fizz then, I like that one.
What's your favourite game for a handheld device, sushi roll?
Persona 3 Portable, maybe? It fixed my ineptitude towards games for a while and I was able to enjoy playing a game. I wanna get a vita too, just for persona 4 and vall-halla.
What is your favourite thickpad?
Do you mean thinkpad? I've only had a few of the cheaper models but my current x230 is nice. The touchpad is failing though, which is a pain. But on the whole it's been very reliable. I had a couple of e500 models but they both broke within half a year.
What's your favourite video game plot/narrative?
Probably Fire Emblem Three Houses.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cUAaedaFqIw
Too lazy to sum up my views on my own so here's a video
What's your favourite video game character aesthetically?
>>7809>What's your favourite video game plot/narrative?
I still think of Silent Hill 2 from time to time, I particularly liked the moment you come across the fat guy in the pizzeria. It was beautifully comfyhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0zlPtpUZ8uQ
What is your favourite band of NWOBHM (New Wave of British Heavy Metal)
Gonna answer >>7838
and leave >>7844
open to whoever in the future since it's relatively obscure. My favourite character aesthetically is probably the powerwilds from kingdom hearts.
What's your favourite myth/legend sushi?
I accept that I should've made a more general question and answer this with a local myth that I haven't heard somewhere else, just heard it from hitchiking.
In a home in the desert far away of the towns, there was a family, a woman was pregnant. The father decided to leave it in an argument, sending the future mother into a starvation.
For this she decided to cross the desert, so she could feed her child and herself, sadly enough she ends up dying in the way towards the town, but not before giving the light to her children. In this situation, the newborn just decided to drink from her breast for months, until someone, somehow, ended up finding it.
I can't remember the name of it, I'm sure it had one, but I frankly can't remember it. Stuck with me due to travelling hundreds of kilometres just by raising the thumb or a sign patiently.
What is your favourite kind of cake sushi?
Really rich chocolate, with chocolate chips in it.
Also, since no one has answered >>7844
yet, Motorhead.>>7885Isn't NWOBHM basically the most mainstream that metal's ever been? Or were you saying that your favorite NWHBHM band is obscure?
What's your favorite work of horror fiction sushi?
>>7888>What's your favorite work of horror fiction sushi?
This killed it lol
I haven't read much horror fiction at all, meaning I've read some of King, Goosebumps, and that's it. I liked King's Misery, if that counts as horror.
What's your favorite non-Japanese East/Southeast Asian food?
I used to eat duck at a Vietnamese restaurant. I forgot the details but it's really good. Also sweet and sour sauces are great.
What is your favourite desktop background/wallpaper?
I've been using cropped versions of this guy's art for years now. I find it very cozy.
What's your favorite candy, sushi?
There's a coconut, milk, and strawberry soft candy that I can buy at a corner store. It's not very sweet but is fruity and has the advantage of not making you sick even if you eat like forty of them.
What's your favorite Gamecube game?
My favourite candies are the sour ones.
Sometimes I wonder looking at those images if the artists are merely doing it as a hobby while doing their full time jobs or are getting something else from it. Those have a particular winter feeling that I can dig.
What is your favourite thing of winter, sushi?
Monkey Ball! I'm >>7885
as well, I guess I just have a thing for 3d monkeys>>8059
Probably a shitty answer, but snow. I don't get it every year, but when I do I go around the village and throw snowballs at every signpost.
Who's your favourite deity sushi??
If we're talking from mythology then Nyx is really cool because she's technically the goddess of things unknown as well as night and is arguably the single most powerful entity in greek myth.
Who's your favorite historical ruler?
I just dig Caligula for the fact that he just laughed at his own mistakes? He was a terrible ruler, but he didn't just cry and feel sad about it, he actually celebrated what he was doing and I find that endearing.
What's your most remembered dream sushi?
Here's the dream journal entry for my most remembered dream:
I was at an apartment with a friend and his girlfriend. We were all college students and he asked me to take part in an experiment. I was to set the vertical and horizontal directions of a telescope to a certain pair of numbers and call him if I saw the monster he was looking for. He would be in another room and his girlfriend was in an apartment in another block of the same building.
I set the coordinates, and the telescope pointed to a spot in the sky. I waited.
At some point it occurred to me that maybe the coordinates were wrong. I set the coordinates again, this time setting the horizontal number as the vertical value, and the vertical number as the horizontal value.
The telescope was now pointing towards a human hiding behind a rock. I zoomed in. The human was pointing a pair of binoculars towards my direction. I could see his eyes popping out of the binoculars, looking straight at me. I tried to scream, but it was not loud enough. I screamed again and woke up.
What is your favourite painting, sushiroll?
I don't have a favorite painting I just needed to say, holy shit your description of your dream paired with that comic gave me goosebumps and I hope I forget all about it before I have to go to sleep tonight.
I'm late but I have to answer this
Kirby Air Ride is the single best game in history and nothing you say will convince me otherwise
My favourite painting would be The Raft of the Medusa, but then again I'm a philistine that only discovered it after seeing the cover art for a Pogues album.
What is your favourite texture/pattern sushi?
Favorite texture is voronoi, it shows up in nature and is beautiful.
What is the most helpful non-fiction book you've ever read?
Haven't read many books but for the few I did I think The Way of the Samurai/Hagakure is one of them.
Here are some teachings from Yamamoto Jin'Emon>Perseverance can do anything>Keep even the roast chicken tied up (don't know what this means)>Don't stop spurring the horse that gallops>Those who critique openly are no traitors>A man lives a generation, but his name lasts until the end of time>Money is always found when you search for it>It's not so easy to find a good man>If you're walking with a real man, he'll tell you at least seven lies in a hundred steps>Asking what you already know is courtesy, asking what you don't know is an obligation>Wrap your intentions in pine needles (Don't know what this could mean either)>You shouldn't open your mouth much or yawn in front of people. Cover it with your sleeves or with a hand fan>The stray hat and the helmet should be carried inclined onwards. (I guess this refers to the ways of bushido, and how they have to die staring towards the enemy).
What's your favourite historical thing of Japan sushi?
ignore my post for the thread rules>>8080
i LOVE kirby air ride. absolutely love EVERYTHING about it. I love all the stars. I love all the events. I love city trial. I love all the dumb whack stuff that can happen during it. it's easily the game I spent the most time on as a teen. I'm extremely surprised this has not been remade yet, I have heard of kirby airride netplay but still haven't checked it out though I've been meaning to for a while. SO many fun little secrets in this game and it was FUN.
Seppuku, the ritual suicide of cutting the belly horizontally(to inflict the most pain). What is your favorite black and white film?
Totally agree, it was my favorite GameCube game. My sister and I filled out the checkbox grid for every mode and played City Trial with each other endlessly.
>>8136>What is your favorite black and white film
I haven't seen many monochrome movies, but I'm a sucker for slapstick. I think "The General" by Buster Keaton is one of my favorites mainly because of the train scenes in it. Obv I could have probably chosen something else that's equally as good like "Safety last!" with his clock stunt, but I'm gonna keep it simple.
What is your favorite theme style on here?
I don't know if it's my favourite thing, but I really love hokora which are those little shrines you get by the road. Spirits use them for shelter, so travellers can pray there for safe passage and stuff.>>8136
I really like Dr Strangelove. I've only seen it once. I'm waiting until they show it at a cinema again, literally only because of that one shot of the pretty lady on the phone… you know the one.>>8146
Eh I mostly use miku just because it's the default and the colour is nice, sometimes if I'm feeling extra cool I switch to ferus.
What's your favourite poem, sushi?
(by Matsuo Basho)
A hill without a name
Veiled in morning mist.
What's your favourite large body of water, sushiroll?
>>8153>large body of water
The Mediterranean, for sure. It's gorgeous, rich in all kinds of history, and has a great climate for swimming, sailing or just lounging near the water.
What's your favorite flavor of ice cream?
Hokey Pokey, it's basicallyy vanilla icecream with chunks of honeycomb toffee and it's as delicious as it sounds.
What's your favourite spaceship, sushi?
Apollo 1, because its failure reshaped NASA. See the famous "Dammit, stop!" speech delivered by Flight Director Eugene F. Kranz following the disaster.
Who is your favorite fictional villain, sushi?
Moridin from Wheel of Time. I liked how the author had the audacity to just outright make him legitimately right, and not just in the 'Thanos was right' way where there was an obvious third route but where Moridin was legitimately outright correct in his worldview from an objective and logical perspective. If not him then maybe Demandred from the same series (sorry Lanfear, but Sanderson ruined your arc) because he has all the trappings of a hero of another story and yet manages to be a villain due to jealousy: he's so determined to step out of the shadow of the MC and so obsessed with being not just 'the worse Lews Therin' that he doesn't even realize he long since has surpassed him.
Reversed: Who is your favorite """non-MC""" hero in fiction, sushi?
Reinhard from Legend of the Galactic Heroes. If only Reinhard were here…>>8170
What's your favourite mode of transport sushi roll?
You're thinking of Kircheis…
I would have to say walking. It's nice, it's peaceful, and you can really think things through on a good walk. Kinda sad that for health related reasons I haven't been able to take a good walk in a while.
What is your favorite drink, sushi roll?
What's your favorite song?
>>8208>What's your favorite song?
How do you define a favourite song? One year may be one another year may be other. People change a lot and with this their perception of what's best and worse also changes.
But it definitely is embed related
What's your favourite instrument sushi?
Depends on in what circumstance but the drum is very versatile and seems to be useful pretty much whatever kind of song you're making. Beyond that, for some reason I really like lutes.
Ah I forgot to ask a question.
What's your favorite style of building (e.g. art deco, brutalist, etc.)
I really like the architecture on Churches and Cathedrals, all the spires and small details put into make them really interesting.
What's your favourite pastime?
By that I guess you mean gothic? Gothic is really nice, yeah. Wonder why it's called gothic though, since the actual Ostrogothic kingdom never really built anything like that.
My favorite pastime, if it can be called that, would probably be cooking. It's not really a pastime because you can't reasonably cook all the time since you can't just keep eating but I really enjoy cooking and I don't know why. I'm also trying to get into gardening.
you forgot to ask a question
The funny thing is I wrote it in but I think it started submitting first. Technology isn't my strong point.
What's your favorite flower?
What's your favourite car or bike?
Whoops, that's apricot flowers. I've lost my peach pictures somewhere.
Toyota Sprinter Trueno AE86.
What's your favorite roman emperor?
i don't know a lot of roman emperors so i'll go with Marcus Aurelius, he seems like a pretty nice guy. too bad everyone's reading his diary now
What is your favourite way to eat an egg?
Hard-boiled. shame they take so long to cook.
What's your favourite puzzle or kind of puzzle, sushi roll?
I really like picross/nonograms. Feels like I'm building something and the picture at the end is like a prize. Though I've never actually played the mario picross games.
What's your favourite reaction image, sushi?
There are so many to choose from…
Just off the top of my head, I'd say the sad cats. They're just so good at describing emotion. And cute.
What's your favorite album?
One of the most comfy albums I've ever heard. It never fails to put me in a calm state of mind.
What's your favorite color combination (e.g. pink/brown, black/purple, etc.)
Definitely shobon (´･ω･`).
There's a couple I like to use as well, like spurdoface :DDDDDD, and ;_;. :3c when I'm being facetious. n_n occasionally, but it reminds me too much of my randumb otaku past, so I unconsciously repress it.
What's your favorite language? The one you find soothing to the ear and would find cool to learn?
Lojban! It has many cool features that a lot of natural languages lack.
What is your favourite game that can be played with a traditional deck of cards?
It's been a long time since I've played it, but there was a card game I enjoyed a lot as a kid which was either called "spoons" or "spit," depending on who you asked. I don't remember exactly how it was played, but it involved several piles of cards in between the players, and it was played in real time, which I liked better than the turn-based nature of most card games.
What's your favorite sea creature?
Sea urchins or octopi, one of the two. I like octopi more and not just for their tentacles but sea urchins look super surreal.
What's your favorite fish to eat sushi?
Well, I gotta say blue grenadier. It is cheap, nutritious and super tasty. I have been eating it all my life.
What is your favourite cafe shop?
cafe called "bar italia" in london. propper italian run cafe that's been there forever, the atmosphere is great. Also it's open almost 24 hours, which is great because there's a somewhat famous jazz club just across the street. They also sell pizza but it's kind of over priced for what it is, would recommend sticking with coffee.
What's your favorite visual novel?
I really enjoyed Planetarian, I think that might be it. I don't even often tend to care for futuristic stuff like that, but KEY is always great. The music was wonderful (I still listen to it sometimes), the writing was really nice, and it was a real tear jerker at the end. I'm currently working through Ksushi roll as well which might take the title!
What's your favourite fruit?
Dates! They're so gooey and sweet they dont seem real. Basically candy that grows on a tree.
What's your favorite time of day, sushi?
Morning. I like sunrise, I like seeing the darkness fade away, hearing the birds singing their songs.
Who is your favourite composer of classical music from any era?
His op.18 is the best classical composition I've ever heard. Especially if performed slower, than Rachmaninoff himself insisted. Perfomances of Anna Fedorova and Tsujii Nobuyuki are good examples. The version from Nodame Cantabile is incredible, but there's only the first movement recorded.
What's your favourite anime movie from the last century?
Easily Perfect Blue, I really like the concept and execution, but I haven't watched that many anime movies
What's your perfect breakfast?
A hearty Full English in a small local cafe.
What's your favourite emotion, sushi?
What is your favourite sentimental object that you own, sushiroll?
I have a collection of subway ticket sleeves from my trips to Japan as a kid. They're different by subway line so it's a fun little affair.
Where's your favorite place to relax sushi?
It's a big lake that's like 15 km south from my town.
What is your favorite mushroom?
That looks beautiful, I'm jealous.
I'm no mycologist but I like Enoki mushrooms, they're cute and cool looking and tasted good the few times I had them.
What's your favorite kind of bread?
Conchas, I love having them as breakfast or snack
When was the last time you got drunk?
>>8652>When was the last time you got drunk?
Right now :)
What's your favorite way to travel?
I loved to drive around in my car, but then I wore up my suspension on offroads.
What is your favourite book?
The Search for Delicious
It's not the best book I've read but I was young when my father read it to me for the first time and have fond memories of it.
What is your favorite type of blanket?
I prefer a bunch of thin blankets so I can adjust the layers at will.
What's your favorite memory?
First flight. The take-off was lit.
What's your favorite (non-alcoholic) drink?
What's your favorite Halloween costume?
What's your favorite non-fiction book?
