The ramblings of a bearded crazy person

Archive for 2009


Clannad is my second-favorite anime, ever since it pushed Death Note out of its spot. The word ‘Clannad’ is derived from ‘clan’, the Irish word for family. And that’s really what is at the heart of the anime; the building of families. Not just actual relatives, but a close circle of friends who are like […]

Shining Ray

Hatsune Miku – Shining Ray Not since Love is War have I come across a song as great as this. And that’s saying a lot. After all, I have nearly 12 hours of Vocaloid songs on my hard drive. Miku here sounds absolutely stunning. If I didn’t know better, I’d swear it was a real […]

Death Note

Alas, we’re reaching the end of this series. I’ve been saving the best for last, so here we go. Death Note is my third-favorite anime that I have watched so far. (It was my second favorite, before being usurped by next week’s anime.) It is clear that the creators know how to tell a good […]

Azumanga Daioh

Azumanga Daioh is yet another school life comedy, again with high school girls. Chiyo Mihama is a genius in every sense of the word. She skipped five grades, entering high school at age 10. Despite the huge age gap, she gets along well with her older classmates, and is a very nice person. Chiyo is […]

My PC Is On Fire

My PC Is On Fire What do you get when you cross a funny song with Elephants Dream? Good stuff, that’s what.

Return to Bazoik

Earlier today, I became aware of a new Chex Quest mod project called Chex Quest: Return to Bazoik. The creator, LegoexpertSSF, asked me for help with some FraggleScripting, and I happily obliged. (I like passing my knowledge on to the next-gen modders. :D ) Anyway, so I’m out here to spread the word. Now all […]

Cowboy Bebop

WOOHOOO!! Cowbooooys…Innn….SPAAACE!!! First aired in 1998, Cowboy Bebop is another oldie with high ratings. But this time, I feel the praise is more justly deserved. Set in the year 2071, Cowboy Bebop tells the story of some bounty hunters, (cowboys,) who travel around the Solar System in their ship, the Bebop. There isn’t a lot […]

What Happens When…

…Idiots get behind the wheel? Real Car Crash Seriously, guys. Stay home. It won’t kill you. (But going just might.) Also: Get some chains.

Strawberry Marshmallow

Strawberry Marshmallow is another school life comedy, all about comedic situations rather than an overall storyline. However, instead of high school girls, this time we have elementary school girls. And one college girl. Nobue Ito is the eldest of the group. (By far. She is twenty.) She is Chika’s older sister, but all the girls […]
