After that last soul-crushing post, I thought I’d put up something better and slightly anime-related. My favorite movie ever in the entire history of everything is being re-released into theaters in 2012 and 2013 and I AM SO THERE. OMGOMGOMGOMG! I actually saw The Last Unicorn with commentary from Peter S. Beagle at Dragoncon about […]

This Simpsons credit-sequence crafted by UK street-artist Banksy is hilarious, but where it really takes a turn for the brilliant is when it delves into the subterranean world of Simpsons merchandising, a place where underpaid Asian sweatshoppers slavishly assemble Simpsons tchochkes for a tchochke-hungry world.
One of the things I hate about kids television programming is that kid’s shows rarely deal with how kids’ minds actually work. Typically, kid’s programming is designed to teach kids oversimplifed moral lessons or how to be a fully functional member of society (‘share your stuff’, ‘disabled people aren’t monsters’, ‘Queso is Spanish for Cheese‘) […]
Aint-It-Cool-News has a great write-up on a new feature film, Viva the Nam, which is kind of like Robot Chicken‘s take on Full Metal Jacket. Apparently the whole thing is a Vietnam flick made with twelve-inch G.I. Joe figures. Seriously. Here’s the trailer. Those of you lucky enough to live in Austin can check out […]
Nina Paley, creator and animator of the remarkable film Sita Sings the Blues has made all of the .fla source files for the project available via Archive.org. Plus, she’s encouraging the public to do other cool stuff with the assets. For free. FREE. Free – as in beer, speech, and sex. Nina, I am officially […]
Wow. I never thought I’d be so intimidated by a blank page. I mean, I rant and rave at (great) length on my own blog, so I thought this would be a snap to do (except for keeping the posts concise). I’m Asian! Taiwanese, to be precise, so I should be able to channel the […]
Anime News Network reports that Ghost in the Shell director Mamoru Oshii will not be helming one of the shorts directly, but instead will act as ‘Creative Director’ – uhm, which is fine since that’s what he did for Jin-Roh…and that was farking amazing. Mamoru Oshii (Ghost in the Shell) is the creative director of […]
After mentioning Mamoru Oshii’s Angel’s Egg a minute ago, I thought – since it’s on YouTube, why not post the whole damn thing? For those of you who don’t know anything about it, Angel’s Egg is a 1985 collaboration between Ghost in the Shell director Mamoru Oshii and Final Fantasy illustrator Yoshitaka Amano – and […]
In case you haven’t had a chance to check out the not-so-recent Robotech: The Shadow Chronicles, here you go – courtesy of FUNimation and Hulu.
I finally got around to checking out the teaser trailer for M. Night Shyamalan’s The Last Airbender. Yeah, I know it was posted like Monday or something, which is about three decades ago in internet time – but frankly I’m pretty neutral on the whole thing. So it was mere curiosity that drew me to […]
Since there are about 300 remix videos of this on YouTube I’m going to assume most of you have seen it. But I think it’s funny, so I’m posting it anway. You got a problem with that, buck-o? (Sorry – that’s what my mom used to say to me when I got out of line…and […]
