GirlDuality: Assignment for this week “The most unfortunate (shitty) dubbing of any show/film/video game you’ve ever seen.” The first thing that comes to mind is “Believe it!” This isn’t really a dubbing thing as it is more of a lost in translation thing. &#%$ing english translating mother&#%$ers! OK so this really bothered me when I first encountered it several years ago. Really really bothered me. I guess its because… mostly… it doesn’t make sense. Today, I’ve gotten over it a little. Though I still think its just &#%$ing stupid. So several years ago I was really into the Japanese animated…

RIP Maurice Sendak

May 8, 2012

Maurice Sendak, beloved children’s author, illustrator and charming curmudgeon died in a Danbury hospital this past weekend. Sendak, author of Where The Wild Things Are as well as many other books left us at age 83. Where The Wild Things Are was written in 1963 but was made into a film by Spike Jonze in 2009. The book was brilliant and demonstrated openly that sometimes children are just plain rude, uncouth and nasty. He didn’t glorify Max with perfect behavior. After a fight with his mother, Max then escapes into a dark, dangerous, fantasy world- free of the restrictions and…

I spotted the cutest little girl on the train today. She was sporting braided pigtails and a Cars backpack ( I’ll forgive her for that). She was reading an Avengers movie adaptation to her Mom on the train. How cute is that? When Mom asked her which one was her favorite, she answered ” I’d want to be a strong doctor, like the Hulk- would be really cool if I could break a car too.” Her Mom just smiled. Kudos to Mom for raising such an awesome lil’ tom boy!!

You Can’t Always Get What You Want… At Least Not When You’re Five.

Girl Duality gave me another homework assignment. She said I had to talk about a toy I wasn’t allowed to have when I was a kid, but always really wanted. I have two stories about this. Story number one starts with this amusing picture. I want to tell you a story. A story about a young boy with a dream. What dream do you ask? Why the only true dream. The dream of some day becoming an astronaut. He thought about it day in and day out. He studied hard in school, and learned all about spacy stuff like comets…

HW Assignment #2 -Worst Superhero Toy HW Assignment #3 -Favorite Toy Your Parents Wouldn’t Buy You So recently, we were assigned the task of finding the worst superhero toy we’ve ever seen. After a few searches I found a cornucopia of toys that the Internet would agree on being the worst superhero toys ever. But the majority of these toys I’ve never seen or heard of. Some are of cartoons that never even made it to the US. So I’ve decided to revamp my selections to only toys I have owned. Now I don’t know how you grew up, but…

The dog ate my homework. And then I was abducted by aliens…

And then I found myself in Mexico without any ID. I was able to get back into the states but I was forced to work as a garden gnome salesman for a few weeks. I still have the rash and I can’t hear out of my left ear. But at least the yolks are still yellow. So that’s why I’m handing in my homework a little late. Girl Duality Assignment 1: “Put up your favorite animated fight of all time, then explain why.” OK so I could probably just go with one or two battles that I remember from Dragon…

 She’s like “Put up your favorite animated fight of all time, then explain why.” and I’m like, “Is there any explanation needed?” You be the judge. ~NLTAG

Lookit the stuff I got!

So one of the fun things about being part of a tight knit community of international nerds on the internet is that every so often a bunch of people will up and send each other a bunch of crap in a box!   I sent Lord Mad Hammer stuff, and Wildcard sent me stuff! This stuff I’m gonna show you now! Check it out!   And on the other side!           There’s tons more stuff, but I don’t wanna bore you too much.   ok one more thing….     Anyway, thanks to Wildcard for the…

People Scared Poo’less! Funny? Clicky Clicky

Hello Again, So today I was talking to a coworker about crazy horror/thriller movies that come out of Japan and Korea. She wanted me to watch a film that freaked her out, and unfortunately I’ve already forgotten the name. Once I get it I’ll add it here…. Anyways, this discussion reminded me of a time that I went on a clicky clicky youtube adventure that brought me to watch a numerous amount of scare prank videos. Some of the great ones coming from Japanese candid camera TV shows. Kinda like Scare Tactics, only with Japanese people and a large focus…

Fantasizing about the little people living in the walls. Arrietty

So I saw the US version of Arrietty this weekend; a Studio Ghibli, Inc production. As Studio Ghibli films go, this one did not disappoint. Had a great story and definitely kept me entertained through and through. Even left me with a bit of half closure; just enough for me to imagine my own future for the main characters. However its not the film that I want to write about here. I kinda suck at reviewing and I think anything more that I say about it would just be a disservice to the film. I will say though, that if like…
