Some other stuff . . .

- 30 Rock had an episode where James Franco guest stars as a celeb in love with Kimiko, a dakimakura or a "hugging pillow". Check the episode out at Hulu. Via Anime Vice

- It's no surprise that James Cameron is possibly planning a trilogy for Avatar since it's been such a huge success. The interesting bit is the last paragraph where it says he is working on Battle Angel now for a 2011 release. Via Yahoo! Movies

- DVD Fantasium, a Japanese online retailer, announced it will no longer import Funimation titles due to licensing agreements. Via ANN.

- For $1.99 you can buy a sarcasm punctuation mark. < sarcasm >Great.< /sarcasm >. Via CNet.

- RIP Isamu Tanonaka. He was the only voice for Medama Oyaji, the walking eyeball that is Kitaro's father from Gegege no Kitaro. Via ANN

- To end on an up note, here's a good quality clean opening for the Dirty Pair TV show from 1985. The song is "Ru-Ru-Ru-Russian Roulette" by Nakahara Meiko. Via Japanator

Is it just me or does "dakimakura" sounds like a savory hand-roll? It's getting on Happy Hour and I could go for some sushi & Sapporo...

Sorry about the lack of posts from me. I'm ass deep in trying to get an OtakuHELL show put together for OhayoCon plus I got the crud on MLK day. I'm under the influence of cold medicine and that's all I can blame for the overload right now.

I'll check back in as soon as possible.

Cough syrup is usually enough to get me out of the mid-winter doldrums, but not the gunk : / Hope ya feel better soon!

PG is the bar you go to after work to have a couple of brews and bs. Take care of business and yourself first. We'll save a couple of beers for you.

Battle Angel in 2011? Really? Hasn't the ship sailed on this one? I have as much enthusiasm for a Battle Angel movie as I do for a Mai the Psychic Girl movie at this point. Can we forget about this and move on to something better?



...like a live action Yamato?
