MechaCon is Comming

MechaCon is the largest Anime Con in New Orleans, and runs this year from August 23rd to the 25th. There will be a ton of things going on there, including Cosplay and AMV competitions, with a wide range of guests to see and events to attend. What makes this memorable for me is the Red […]


Yesterday I mentioned that the JAPAN FILM FESTIVAL of San Francisco was going to be running Library Wars on Friday, but they have a number of other amazing films you will also want to see on the big screen if you can make the festival (note: it started several days ago, so a time machine […]

Something to Do: Movies, 2Aug13

Europa Report is the planetary adventure this week, searching for life on Jupiter’s fourth largest moon. While not the largest budget film ever, this one looks very interesting indeed. The other one I would really like to see is Library Wars, if I can just make it over to the Japan Film Festival of San […]

Something to Watch: DVDs, 30Jul13

I somehow missed G.I. Joe: Retaliation when it was in the theaters, but I suspect I will watch it eventually. After all, it has both Bruce Willis and Dwayne Johnson, so it has to be a roller coaster of an action film. Something to watch for the mindless violence and special effects, in other words.


Silly Doctor Who Video

Everyone has already posted the great new videos from Comic Con, but somebody had a lot of fun editing this silly footage together, so I thought I would put this up for your enjoyment instead. It’s been online for a little bit now, but I just found it, so maybe you haven’t seen it either. […]

Anime Studio builds

If you are into building your own animations, and you are using Anime Studio as part of your toolset, here are a few videos to inspire you. The first is called Ballade by Yaki, the second is TTTest1NS, the final one is Dark Prints. Each of these is pretty amazing in its own right, and […]

New Blender Foundation Open Animation

The Blender Foundation is constantly testing and improving the free open source 3D modeling and animation software Blender, and part of that process is to get the funding to allow a talented team of people to do some actual animations with it. This one is called Sintel, it was made back in 2010 and has […]

More Strange J-Commercials

Japanese commercials are even stranger than the ones they build to catch our attention in the west. Having said that, a lot of these would work anywhere around the world, but about 25% of them could only come from Japan. That probably has as much to do with the globalization of culture on Earth as […]

New Kickass Trailer

NSFW, but it definitely looks like Kick Ass 2 is going to be just as off the hook as the first one. Just one of many new trailers that have hit the web during and after Comic Con this weekend.

Something to Do: Movies, 26Jul13

There is no doubt that the primary choice this weekend will be The Wolverine, next from the Marvel X-Men franchise. I am pretty much on the must-see bandwagon when any new Marvel movie hits the big screen, so I don’t even need to think about it any more. If you are in the mood for […]
