Up a Paddle - Episode 53 - It's On Like Donkey Kong
This episode I review King of Kong: A Fist Full Of Quarters. I also talk about sending astronauts to Mars and forgetting to leave the lights on outside, Disney going kawaii, and having a smashing good time playing Smash Bros.
Disney, Madhouse to Make Stitch! Show for Japanese TV.
And yet Maximum Horsepower is denied yet again. Where's the Horace Horsecollar love?
Trigun movie announced.
I plan on going to Tim Hortons to have a donut to celebrate this.
Gurren Lagann movie announced for Fall 2008 (In Japan).
My drill is the one that pieces the heavens! I wish these DVDs would hurry up and be released here.
One Way Mission to Mars.
I think it's gonna be a long, long time till touchdown brings me round again to find I'm not the man they think I am at home. Oh no, no, no, I'm a rocket man.
World's oldest animation found.
Take that Gertie!
Wordsworth, Cool Devices categorized as Obscene by Canadian Customs.
Dominion Tank Police only considered "admissible"
But, but I trusted you Dane! All this time I thought you had a wholesome, family friendly podcast (Anime Pacific). I thought we were on the same page when you came out in support of Wholesome Wear. But then you review a show (Dominion Tank Police*) that has been marked only as "admissible" by Canadian Customs. For shame! I might have accidentally watched that show not knowing what was awaiting me. Do you know how many bowls of Corn Flakes I had to eat to suppress the wicked urges that that article begat, let alone how many more I would I have to eat if I had watched Dominion Tank Police**
Also, here's the pdf I mentioned.
* More like the Dominion Tank Police that like to have sex with each other whilst innocent Canadian children watch on with mouths agape because a certain podcaster recommended this lurid filth as appropriate, which although it doesn't actually have any explicit sex scenes, it could. Ridiculous.
** Bonus Pretzels to anyone that gets that Random Fact
Japanese ISPs to crack down on P2P anime sharers.
It will be interesting to see how this affects the fansub community. This is finally an action that could see results. Fans here might have to resort to actually buying their content. That is, if they can get it across the border first. Also, it will be interesting to see if anyone counts how many times I say "It will be interesting" when I talk about this news item in the podcast.
Pirate site crunchyroll.com has been given 4.5 million in venture captial.
Wow, I was way off on that. It was 4.05 million. I had a typo in my show notes. I'll be updating this episode to put in the correct value and will issue a correction in the next one. Good thing no one actually listens to this show. In the meantime, just pretend it's me stuttering. I apologize for the mix up.
Partial Review - Super Smash Bros Brawl
I recently picked up Super Smash Bros Brawl and went over a few of the modes in the podcast. Sufficed to say, I'll be talking a lot about this game, but in the meantime, here's my Friend Code (4296-2752-0234). Please be my friend. I want to play online so that I can show the world my mad skills with Princess Peach (or lack thereof).
The King Of Kong: A Fist Full Of Quarters

I liked it. Two barrels up.
Also, here's the Mr. Awesome interview I mentioned.
