Damn, finally got around to watching the Young Indiana Jones adventures (...relatively; been trying to make it through the first episode over the last 4 days), and I'm already in love with them. Lucas hadn't completely jumped the shark yet back then, and the stories display both an educational bent and a love of discovery and the spice of this world that is wonderfully alive and human. What a great inspiration for my European venture.

I've been getting a lot of mileage out of this song on loop, and I thought I'd share it with you here:

I love early American riverboat music (technically called old-time music).

It occurs to me that some of you have probably never heard of Pete and Pete. But you probably have heard of Adam West, whose campy performance as Batman lives on to this day, and has typecast Mr. West as a melodramatic--a role he proudly embraces. Here is Adam West on Pete and Pete. Tell me this is not some of the best afternoon television ever produced.

While I was gone I got addicted to and eventually finished watching all of Dr Who and already did all my OMG WTF stuff so I just wanted to say I love it. All of it. Even Matt Smith.

Hah watched the recent episode of Bleach and saw... *gulps*. Crap, I couldn't see Komamura get beaten up! IT'S ANIMAL ABUSE, I TELL YA! But you already know who the winner is. It's official: Komamura's my favorite Bleach character! He's gentle and has a heart of gold, but he can also be wrathful and ruthless.

UNSHAKEABLE, IRON CLAD LOYALTY!

The Scrooge McDuck comics are always fantastic. Great post. Did you know that the Soapy charater is based on Jefferson Randolph II? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soapy_Smith



I love new beginnings. I just got a job working for a major newspaper here in NYC. I'm going to miss my current job, but financially this was the right move for me. I'm a little nervous, but I learned to embrace change. So here I go.

Thanks; read the entire article. I'm amazed I'd never been exposed to that guy before in popular media.

Quote
Some legends state that Virgil, fearing that he would die before he had properly revised the poem, gave instructions to friends (including the current emperor, Augustus) that the Aeneid  should be burned upon his death, owing to its unfinished state and because he had come to dislike one of the sequences in Book VIII, in which Venus and Vulcan have sexual intercourse, for its nonconformity to Roman moral virtues. The friends did not comply with Virgil's wishes and Augustus himself ordered that they be disregarded. After minor modifications, the Aeneid was published.

According to the tradition, Virgil traveled to Greece around 19 BCE in order to revise the Aeneid. After meeting Augustus in Athens and deciding to return home, Virgil caught a fever while visiting a town near Megara. After crossing to Italy by ship, weakened with disease, Virgil died in Brundisium harbour on September 21, 19 BCE. Augustus ordered Virgil's literary executors, Lucius Varius Rufus and Plotius Tucca, to disregard Virgil's own wish that the poem be burned, instead ordering it published with as few editorial changes as possible. As a result, the text of the Aeneid that exists may contain faults which Virgil was planning to correct before publication. However, the only obvious imperfections are a few lines of verse that are metrically unfinished (i.e., not a complete line of dactylic hexameter). Other alleged "imperfections" are subject to scholarly debate.



"Burn it."



"No."

Thanks, Augustus.

I'm actually quite fond of the Ganbare Goemon series. At least, the only ones allowed to be brought over here, which this could also double as a frustration. >_<

Having said that, I couldn't help but notice Zeality's avatar sig. :P

FUCK, do I want this. Having a real bust would be amazing.

I wish someone would also translate the SNES Goemon games.

recently started playing Legend of the Mystical Ninja on SNES.

I love Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann.  FIGHTING THE POWER is now my personal hobby.
