But Wait, there's MORE!

Hit the 13th episode of Little Witch Academia, and realized the story wasn't over yet. Hit Nyaatorrents and yes, two more episodes waiting for me!

And still not a single Onsen or beach episode! Yay!

And I totally called it on Chariot's identity.

(In the video below, there are two LWA clips, and they're two of the funniest bits).

Stupid, goofy fun

There are lots of guys who do videos like this, but this guy consistently has a few bits that make me laugh in spite of myself. (Recently, in response to requests, he started adding titles and clip names to the bits, but they aren't always accurate). Definitely NSFW.

New Wordpress post

Where's the Beef? Shorter: All those stalwart defenders of the Hugo from two years ago couldn't be bothered with voting for it this year when there are no Puppies to kick.

Liquid Coolers Redux

Last July I wrote about the liquid cooler on my PC going kaput. Looks like the warranty replacement unit is crapping out now too. I had one overheat incident yesterday, and a couple of pump stoppages that were "cured" with a solid rap today. I know it will get worse. I've already contacted support. If they say its out of warranty, I'll switch brands.

That is F-ing twisted!

A number of hours ago I mentioned in a comment that I'd watched the first episode of "Youjo Senki", also known as "The Saga of Tanya the Evil."

Holy shit!

This is not your typical magic flying girl soldiers kind of anime. Hell no! This is to Strike Witches what Madoka Magica is to Sailor Moon. The first episode was merely setup of the current war situation. The second episode gives us Tanya's back story. And it is a trip, temporally, theologically, and dimensionally.

Yeah, the "Heroine" is a socipathic atheist being punished by God with a really unfortunate reincarnation in order to push "Him" into such straits that "he" will finally admit to faith, and he's determined to live this life as a gigantic "Fuck you" to God--or "Being X" as he allows the divine to be called.

Sweetness and light it ain't. And that's only two episodes in.

Little Witch Academia

Just throwing down a Marker here, after 6 episodes, I'm betting the big secret is:
They totally gave it away this episode.

Funny thing is, this show reminds me of something I only saw a single episode of in the '80's at the Philadelphia Animation Society, about a poorly regarded school magic club where the witches fly out on brooms and save the city (Tokyo?) from something attacking from the sea. I have no idea what it was called.

And while I'm flashing back on the days of 50 anime fans crammed into a rented room to watch fuzzy tapes on 19" TV's, does anyone remember "Prefectural High School Earth Defense Force"?

Not another one...

An artist I've known personally since the 1980's, Taral Wayne has just announced that he's recently suffered a stroke. I don't know much more than that. He had a friend type that for him in his DeviantArt Status.

Any suggestions for this Season?

Seriously. I actually like them. So what are you all watching that you think is good?

Miss Daicon revisited

One of my first introductions to anime back at the Philadelphia Animation Society in the mid '80's, was a fun little convention opening animation set to ELO's "Twilight" from the album Time. It had been degraded from many generations of recopying, but it was pretty amazing, and showed what Fans were capable of. Plus it was an homage to everything that was good in fandom back then.

Lately on Youtube I've been getting an amateur (hardly!) video series suggested to me. But this one, "Cassette Girl" is especially worthy, since it hearkens back to that Daicon IV Opening Animation. Although I still don't understand the fascination with Betamax....

Wheee! Another Instalanche!

For "Who Goes There?!" basically a failed writer goes on HuffPo and writes a piece about how all Self-Pub books are shit because they don't pass through the NYC Publisher's gatekeepers. Larry Correia fisked the living shit out of the post, but I had a different insight that started as a comment and turned into an essay. My theory is that thanks to the way Sales ranking and reviews and also-boughts work on a site like Amazon, plus blogs and social media, the "Gatekeepers" have been Crowdsourced.
