Captain Apache vs. Navajo Joe: who would win?


Off-Topic Discussion / Jesus Camp
« on: February 19, 2007, 12:05:55 AM »
anyone else seen this..?

"A growing number of Evangelical Christians believe there is a revival underway in America that requires Christian youth to assume leadership roles in advocating the causes of their religious movement. This documentary, directed by Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady, directors of the critically acclaimed THE BOYS OF BARAKA, follows Levi, Rachael, and Tory to Pastor Becky Fischer's "Kids on Fire" summer camp in Devil's Lake, North Dakota, where kids as young as 6 years-old are taught to become dedicated Christian soldiers in "God's army."

This riveting Oscar-nominated documentary offers an unfiltered look at a revivalist subculture where devout Christian youngsters are being primed to deliver the fundamentalist community's religious and political messages. Building an evangelical army of tomorrow, the Kids on Fire summer camp in Devil's Lake, N.D., is dedicated to deepening the preteens' spirituality and sowing the seeds of political activism as they're exhorted to "take back America for Christ."  "

well, i just watched Jesus Camp.. and i'm pretty unsettled right now.

the contents of the film were enough alone to disturb me.. i was not aware that a good sized chunk of the film, including the intro, was filmed in my hometown and at the church i went to growing up. i've experienced a lot of what is going on in this movie throughout my life, until i moved out, although not as extreme. had no idea this film would be hitting so close to home though.

anyway, strongly recommend this film. it completely drives home the impact this movement is having on our government right now

the leader of the camp in this movie, even states she would like to see children in this country as passionate as the children being trained as militant extremists in other countries

i'm going to go try to unfuck my head now

Off-Topic Discussion / a question about blank firing replicas
« on: February 14, 2007, 11:51:52 AM »
i know a few of you have experience with these.. i've been looking into them for a while, and what i'm wondering is about the orange cap on the end of the barrel.. is it removable? i would be buying these for use in a project down the line, and a gun with an orange cap on the end wouldn't be of much use..

or do you all use the real thing with blanks, or are there replicas that don't come with the orange cap?

was also wondering about the smoke after firing, like FC brought up in FH's topic... FC: you said a bit of smoke comes out? what kind of guns you using? i was under the impression that even if you remove the orange cap, the barrels are still closed off

Reservoir Dogs

Off-Topic Discussion / NTSC/PAL DVD Player recommendations?
« on: November 24, 2006, 02:25:41 PM »
I was wondering if anyone has suggestions for a good dvd player that will play both PAL and NTSC discs, for output to a NTSC television. I'm looking at the CyberHome CH-DVD300, as price is a big factor and this one seems to get very good reviews.

another big factor is ability to play burned DVDs. some of my friends players seem to wig out a lot on burned DVDs.

Off-Topic Discussion / stephen king's gunslinger
« on: March 08, 2005, 09:57:04 AM »
anyone ever read king's dark tower series?

the main character, roland, is admittedly based on sergio leone's man with no name. this series is an excellent read, especially if you're into spag westerns. the books draw much from these films and are very well written. they are actually what has gotten me back into sgw's, since i've been reading the last couple that just came out and complete the 7-book series.

the first book is called the gunslinger, and i highly recommend checking it out. if you enjoy leone, you will love these books.

and if you've never read any stephen king, just completey forget all of his movies. they are absolute crap and his writing is way better, especially in this series.

General Discussion / sw sources
« on: March 04, 2005, 12:54:37 PM »
im relatively new to the sw genre..

i watched leone's stuff  when i was younger and loved them, and recently went back to check them out again- and discovered a new interest for these films. 

i recently watched the great silence and keoma, and was surprised at how much i enjoyed them.

so.. what are some good resources on the internet for spag westerns? would love to check some more stuff out..
