@Mac: I've heard of Ghost in The Shell, I've read it's one of the best anime movies ever made so far. Do you think it lives up to that name?

I just got back from WWZ! :D It was a great movie; it was different from regular zombie movies. There was very little hack-and-slash (more shooting than chainsawing, and they deliberately didn't show Brad Pitt putting a crowbar through a zombie's skull full view), and a lot of good story. Worth the admission.

And as I was exiting the theater, some random teenage girl goes "You look like Edward from Twilight. That's a good thing."

Me: O_O

Nah, that's an invention of Hollywood. I just sort of glow in the dark. :9

@MC: Yeah, once you're started it feels great to actually do something interesting -and- useful for a change ;)

The roof is the one on this little cabin, the infamous corners being those on the part to the right. I'm kind of happy it's over, but it sure was fun to build as well.

@Napoleon Cullen (I'm so proud of myself because I had to google sparklyboy's surname!) I seriously laughed out loud reading that comment, MC.
If you ever find yourself out of work, I suppose street lamp is an option, Napo ;9

Dude, that house is insane. :|~ You're so much better at castle stuff than me.

A dark, and edgy streetlight. That plays with Lego. ;9

Thanks a lot! I really pulled myself together for that ramshackle look, too, so I'm glad people like it.

As for the street light part: Great, now I'm imagining a crowd of annoyed pedestrians shouting at a living, completely indifferent lamp because its light is focused at a stack of Lego bricks rather than the road X)

It's one of my favourites anime films, right up there with Akira.

There's also a Ghost in the Shell TV series called Stand Alone Complex which is phenomenally well made.

AlbaVik: very nice build, the roof and vines are great!

@ street lamp: just think of all the people you could confuse without much effort :o)

Napo: I don't think I'd take that kind of insult lying down. ;)

Anyways, I happened to finally get around to uploading some of the pics I took when I was in the Navy to my Flickr account.

Here's a quick sampling:

Daylaunch 1 by Hikaro Takayama, on Flickr

Very Historical photo: This is an actual combat shot of the USS Obrien (DD-975), my first ship, firing Tomahawk Cruise Missiles at Taliban and Al Quaida targets in Afghanistan in October, 2001.

My Bunk by Hikaro Takayama, on Flickr

This was where I lived during the three years I was on the USS Obrien (home sweet home!). As you can see, not much space, and my bunk was right next to the cramped TV lounge, which kinda sucked when I was trying to get some sleep and the rest of the guys were playing their "training videos"... :/

Me and my radar by Hikaro Takayama, on Flickr

...And here's a pic of me taken almost exactly 10 years ago while working on my radar antenna. For comparison, here's a pic of me taken October of last year:

Halloween Costumes 2012 by Hikaro Takayama, on Flickr

...I think I know why I still get carded when I order wine at restaurants. ;)
