Capoeira's such a beautiful martial art.

Speaking of Wendee Lee, I just got finished watching vol. 2 of Lucky Star.  I heart Konata and Yui.  Kagami's probably my favorite character, though.  

So which end of a chocolate cornet is the head?

Inherit the Wind is a movie that should be required viewing by all, especially the state of Kansas.  It's totally relevant today.

I also recently caught The NeverEnding Story on TV.  Love that movie (still looks beautiful even today) and the book is quite good.  I read the book a while back, but for the life of me I can't understand or recall why in the movieAtreyu was told that he couldn't take any weapons on his quest.  That seems a bit silly.  Perhaps there was something in the book I just can't remember.

I was at ConnectiCon this weekend and attended screenings for both Lucky Star and xxxHolic.  I went into Lucky Star because I adore the theme song, but heard the series wasn't that great.  Guess what?  I LOVED it!  We watched the dub version, but it was excellent.  So freaking funny.  

xxxHolic seemed like a cool concept and something up my alley, but I hated it.  The characters weren't likeable, I wasn't digging the art style, and I found rather dull and boring.  

I'll definitely be keeping up with Lucky Star.

An oldie but a goodie.  15 minutes of awesome, I'd say.

Nothing fancy.  Just Lee Kyung Won playing my favorite Guilty Gear song (Blue Water, Blue Sky- May's theme from X2) on guitar.  And since I'm a pathetic gearhead when it comes to guitars and basses the first thing I noticed was "cool, he's playing one of the ESP Kirk Hammet sig models."

I love the Least I Could Do webcomic.  Here's Rayne singing about emo kids.

I just finished watching the anime movie Paprika on TV.  It was subtitled too.  It was visually stunning but I have no idea what the hell happened over the 95 minute span of the movie.  

It's like an essay with loads of flowery prose that completely obscures and even misses any kind of point it's trying to make.  Total WTF movie.  Pretty but weird.

I recently saw the documentary Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price on TV.  I'm already anti-Wal-Mart (their unethical business practices are often gross human rights violations), but this documentary opened my eyes to stuff I never even knew or considered about the most evil corporation ever created.

Quote from: "D-Rider"
Oh sweet tits.

The worst Led Zep cover in the entirety of the space-time continuum.

To be fair, it didn't start off too badly, but once it got all 80s synth poppy, I was ready to vomit.  

Then again, 99% of any Stairway to Heaven cover will suck compared to the original, but this one was pretty bad. You've all seen this awful mess before.

I forgot if I posted this already.  Whatever.  It f'n brutalizes.

It's studio footage of Cannibal Corpse, just the guitar, bass, and drums doing Frantic Disembowelment.

No, I don't play any MMORPGs.  However, I am a fan of Ryan Sohmer and Lar DeSouza's work (I love Least I Could Do; it's one of my favorite webcomics), so it only made sense that I should check out LFG.  And I think it's great; I love how it's hysterical yet also tells a pretty complex tale.  Richard and Krunch are my favorite characters.

If anyone likes the webcomic Looking for Group ( ) as much as I do, you'll certainly be amused by Richard singing "Slaughter Your World."

The comic just reaffirms my theory that everyone I've ever encountered named Richard is completely insane, but in an entertaining way.

That was on TV back when I was 10 or so.  I was so excited to see a cartoon based on my favorite Nintendo game and felt blasphemed that Link was an obnoxious jackass and Zelda was a cold hard bitch.  I expected Link to be a valorous chivalrous knight and Zelda to be a nicer princess; I mean wouldn't you be more appreciative of the person who saves your ass in every game?  Even at age 10, before I really knew what anime was, I envisioned a Zelda cartoon looking like something out of these:

The other day I saw something on the History Channel about actual archaeological connections and research to the Indiana Jones movies.  One thing that stood out to me was when one scholar said that archaeologists laughed during the opening sequence of Crystal Skull because there really ARE warehouses like that (often attached to research universities) where all manner of historical treasures exist and few people really know they're actually there.  To archeologists, the warehouse bit was funny because it was true.  Go figure, huh?  

Every time an Indy movie comes out, people get excited about archeology again.
