About Dumuzi
I particularly like Assyriology (study of ancient Mesopotamia), card games such as Poker or BlackJack, pool, beer tasting, watching laughably bad movies and animes.



Dumuzi [Dumu.zid means rightful son] is a deep-seated God in Sumerian religion. Previously Lord of Bad-Tibira, he progressively absorbed personalities of Ishtaran, Amaushum-Galanna (spirit of the date palm's bud), Alla, Ningishzidda and mostly Damu, another deity of vegetation, strangely depicted as a child while Dumuzi is always shown as an accomplished breeder and well-grown man.

In Sumerian royal list, Dumuzi is credited as the Shepherd King, the 5th one of antediluvian times with 36 millenniums of reign. After the Deluge, he's even listed as the King of Ku'ara.

His life's main episodes are his sacred wedding with Inanna (Ishtar) and his death.
He has to decease to counterbalance Inanna's resurrection. At that time, she was trying to take over her sister Ereshkigal's kingdom and she ended up impaled on a hook. Her redivivus was strictly necessary as every single beings of Earth ceased to reproduce the pattern of Love inspired by her very existence...

Inanna chose her husband among the divine family because he didn't mourn her death. Of course, Dumuzi refused to make up for a failed conquest, so he attempted to escape his demonic pursuers with Utu's help (the Sun God) who transformed him into multiple creatures to outrun them, and his sister Geshtinanna, who offered her farm as refuge. However, the Shepherd god was somehow arrested and then sentenced by the Annunakis to go to Hell for Autumn and Winter, while his sister will take his place for the rest of the year.

Inanna's descent in Hell's episode remains one of the earliest explanation of existence of off-season and vegetation's cycle rebirth, far before Persephone's myth in Greek mythology. Dumuzi's relation with his wife is also a very interesting study, as it's as conflicting as it's prolific. It's an epitome of Love, in a way, with its part of creativity and destructiveness.






Plot Elements I consider to be awesome:



My Personal Lexicon



~ My tendency: Total Completist ~





MRRA is the list of randomly selected animes I share in common with a handful of partners.
In order to belong to it, you must be validated as friend.

There's only 5 slots. No more or less. This to increase event's turnover, and not to be stucked forever on the same edition. Some series being very long, it might already take me a while to complete it all.

What are the rules ? If you have more than a thousand entries, you're a permanent member.
Otherwise, your slot selection is uncertain, given randomization of members with few title entries.
I don't wangle it at all. I may be very favored by choices coming out. It's also right for the other way around. Got an awful hentai such as Battle can can ? If it drops, I'm on my way ! Got bara with lotsa buttsecks action ? My doom is coming forth. The most sickening of loli sugarness ?
If I still live to tell the tale, it'll be behind me.

Now, that's what you call a risky watching experience.


Fish Snek Club for life !

Hah, GPX already has such a large cast, why introducing that cheesy ass Randoll at the last third, while many others are currently underused ?
This is one of the two major flaws of the anime... Thankfully, these don't stain that much overall picture.

The main series was my favorite, with the sequels putting the racing on the backseat for more drama. I liked the emphasis on the racing a lot, showcasing the tracks, the environments, etc. All around I liked the vibe of the show, with that early 90's Sunrise charm, and with the sci-fi dabbles it almost felt like a mecha series with those kind of vehicles.

I like car porn in anime. Riding Bean was one of the best at this.

Here is your banner, Dumuzi. Sorry for the delay. I had some issues with the modem today, so I didn't have an internet connection at home.
Anyway, I hope the banner is more or less OK. I didn't resize it to 600 px in width because I don't know if you want to use it in a MAL signature or somewhere else.

That anime was ahem... Very technical.

Jody32 | 06-29-14, 3:12 PM
>I don't mind being shocked to the extreme by something. In fact, it's important to know the exact limit of what you can stand without a fixed grin, so you can enjoy all the more the finest bunch. But I am not like the others, ready to digest any newer duds the anime industry upper decker at their very eyes.

Haha, yeah I know what you mean. I tend to push my limits with how much I can take before I start to cringe. Usually that is around the 2/10 mark.
Well if you like duds, just to establish what you will be getting into, I love showing people this atrocity, though it is more towards the very bottom of the barrel of bad anime, the reactions are priceless. I can see definitely see why.

You can find it on MAL, http://myanimelist.net/anime/5569/Tsui_no_Sora

>Syrian conflict protest.

Ah yes, are you following the news in Iraq at the moment? It's a development of sorts from the Syrian civil war. The US backed opposition is funding and training the extremists originally based in Syria and sending them over to Iraq.

>Rahxephon

Hmmm, I still need to finish that I put it on hold such a long time ago and never got back to it. Well if you're after something good, just ask and give me an idea of the kind of show that you are after. I will do all I can to help.

>I would be more than happy to join, but I couldn't guarantee my assiduousness. If you don't mind I may drop by to share my humble opinion, so be it...

I understand, everyone has a life to lead, but anyone's welcome. xD

Jody32 | 06-29-14, 2:24 PM
Yo, just saying hi.

Yeah, just making a comment on Eiken lol. It is indeed one of the worst ecchi anime in existence. But there are still a handful that I would show to other people to see what a truly bad ecchi anime is. Though note, some of them are hentai, but Eiken is basically hentai in a way.

>What are you up to?

Well, just pulled another all-nighter. Watching me some anime, and checking up on some current affairs. Nothing too special. Just living. xD

How about you? Anything special at your end of the world?

What movie ya watching?

If you watch a lot of movies, me and a couple of others here on MAL have made a cinema club and we're trying to make it a little more active if you wish to join.

Lucius_Evola | 06-26-14, 9:14 PM
About the books: it's a pity, I wish as had some =/

But in this case, has helped yes: now I know a reliable source on Assyriology, =]

Grateful.

Mais je t'en prie, j'espère qu'il te plaira !
Pour ma part le film m'a vraiment émerveillé, ne serait-ce que par son atmosphère atypique. C'était définitivement une expérience complètement différente de ce que j'ai l'habitude de regarder.

En fait je n'habite pas exactement Paris mais j'en suis tout de même assez proche on va dire, comme quoi le monde est petit.


konnakude | 06-26-14, 1:04 PM
Helloes! Long time no write! Lol...

I was actually thinking about you before Fish Sneck Day as I was in Estonia for a short visit and saw those packets of different kinds of dried fish.

Actually, I'm not so active on MAL as before myself, as I got so much work in fansubs that I barely have time to watch anime. Only some short OVAs here and there, but not any longer series as before. I guess I took again too much work on myself, though this feeling that you're needed is that makes me feel alive. XD

I'm trying to avoid everything that has to do with the politics as I have friends here who are both pro- and against Putin and I don't want to choose sides. I just hope it won't grew into smth bigger due to the USA's involvement in the matter.

Otherwise, I'm having pretty much the same life with my bloody migraines now and then. So those days I'm dedicating only to watching anime as amethod of escape. :P

Kionys | 06-26-14, 8:40 AM
> Until when it's gonna be on theaters, Kion ?
As there are so many comments since I posted on the club, I'll answer you here.
So there are projections until the next week but I don't know exactly how long it will last.

Btw, if you are from France do you speak French ? < silly question

I was wondering if I might answer in French or not but before I could even decide I wrote in English out of habit.

Lucius_Evola | 06-25-14, 7:50 PM
As for tips on Assyriology, thanks =]
I ask for books that approach the subject in general, just as something introductory even, and for minimum overall sense of the issue.

Oh sure, let my opinion, for what he described in Cyber ​​City Oedo . Cyberpunk is one of my favorite themes, for her address current problems indeed.

Thanks for the descriptions!

Dumuzi | 06-25-14, 3:48 PM
* groans *

This overused characterization element as plot twist on SAO episode 22

* rumbles *
* groans *

Mushy, idiotic and creepy...
What a pile of dong this anime is.

Lucius_Evola | 06-23-14, 12:00 AM
Hi Dumuzi!

I'm fine, thank you =]

You like Assyriology, cool. Also I am very interested in ancient civilizations (especially Roman). The Ancient Mesopotamia is very interesting, mainly because often be for that particular people and ancient, history and myth end joining. Regarding their religion, rituals, dogmas, as they applied in their laws and in their lives ... there are books that describe in a general way all this?

Their animes, interested me Cyber ​​Oedo 808 (elements cyberpunk) and DNA² (the synopsis it sounded funny). How is the story of the two and what you thought, deepening a bit?


Grateful.

One inflatable duck award for one extraordinarily dumb quote though:
"When I have a bad hand, I raise the pot"

From my viewpoint as poker player, it's the best way to lose your stack if your opponent knows how much probability is at his side. Well, at least I know Kirito would not be that much of a Gary Stu with cards on hands !

Dumuzi | 06-21-14, 4:57 PM
I have forgotten how SAO can be trying at times. I am just plain annoyed at how it can be formulaic, at times. And the attempt at humor with fanservice, highlighting how much of a Gary Stu Kirito is...
