I am Baby Cakes

March 25, 2009 at 2:29 pm (comedy, strange)

Shudder in horror, cower in despair as Baby Cakes displays his mastery of the twenty-sided die.

What is Baby Cakes? Baby Cakes is Ralph Wiggum at the age of twenty-nine…

if he played D&D…

and if his name was Mark and he criticized a production of King Lear and its use of  New-Historicism…

I am Baby Cakes. You are Baby Cakes. We are the world.

Soul Calibur 4…WTF?

Just saw this and had to share the experience of being dumbfounded.

How in the world can this be explained in Story Mode?

Favorite Anime Openings

February 7, 2008 at 10:10 am (anime, cheese, faces which amuse me, Gundam, strange)

This kind of post isn’t the substantial type I had in mind when I resolved to blog more this year but I promise there will be something of note to read within the next couple of days. That being said, here are a few of my favorite anime openings. Don’t worry about my sanity; I’m already embarrassed enough to feel like a fifteen year old for posting this.

I should mention just because I few of these are favorites doesn’t mean I’ve watched the entire series. I’m thinking of Yamato and Mazinger Z when I say this seeing as how I’ve only seen a few of episodes of each.

Turn A Gundam:

Out of all the Gundam openings this is the only one that passes muster. It also might have something to do with this being my favorite Gundam to date since it’s sort of steam-punkish, has a slow moving plot, great character development, and manages to explain away the multiple Gundam universes/time-lines.

Space Battleship Yamato:

Why would I choose this as a favorite? I’m sure it has nothing to do with the manliness of Isao Sasaki…

Enough of that.

Eureka Seven:

This anime ranks up there with EVA and Full Metal Alchemist, although the ending isn’t a mind blitz like the former nor as sloppy as the latter.

Mazinger Z:

I like this opening for the nostalgia it exerts upon me although I never saw it as a kid. I guess it’s just the horrible animation quality as well as the cheesy music.

Ergo Proxy:

Paranoia Agent:

The last two openings aren’t entirely chosen for how great the music is but for how they encapsulate the anime they’re introducing. Both of them are great by the way.

And finally will end off with the calliphonic laughter of Guu:

So what are your favorite openings?

Why aren’t you reading the #1 Graphic Novel of 2007?

January 28, 2008 at 4:15 pm (comics, strange, Webcomics)

Reminiscent of when the magazine lauded Watchmen as one of the top 100 novels of all time, Time has claimed Achewood as the #1 Graphic Novel of 2007. Granted, this scintillating work of art is a webcomic, it is still more than deserving of this recent prize and I can’t help but wonder what took so long for it to receive this kind of recognition.

I’d recommend starting at the beginning, but if you want to make certain as to whether or not this is a webcomic worthy of your attention, read the Great Outdoor Fight story arc. If this doesn’t clinch your adoration nothing will.

Man. This comic is worth reading for the alt-text alone sometimes. Makes me want to get my slant on.

Another Inappropriate Welcome

This one’s for Wes. Goofy like his dice, creepy like his Daft Robin.
