Up a Paddle - Episode 56 - Yeah, I'm Kinda Evil
In this episode I do a rundown of E3 and talk about videogames and such. Also, I talk about certain tendancies of mine. Evilish tendancies.
Well, you want evil, you got it, albeit in the form of random slightly disturbing videos. So, in no particular order:
Pom Poko. "Mommy, why isn't that raccoon wearing any pants?"
Disney stuff is the best. Speaking of Disney stuff:
Walt Disney's The Menstruation Story
Worms in a guy's stomach - WARNING - Video is exactly what I said. People with weaker temperaments beware.
And, because Wii Fit Girlfriend got you all hot and bothered, here's the sequel:
See more funny videos at CollegeHumor
Be sure to check out Dr. Horibble's Sing along blog (now on iTunes).
Putting this video on hulu.com after I downloaded on iTunes, now that's evil. Well played, Whedon.
Here's the wikipedia article on the spanking machine I mentioned. I did not realize how depraved the thing was until I learned it also has a kancho mode. For more information on kanchos, go to Gaijin Smash, a blog written by an American that taught English in Japan. There's some pretty wild stories in there.
Back to my show, I also go on a bit of a rant (I know, I never rant, but I guess there's a first time for everything) about why E3 is a flawed concept.

Since I'm not completely evil, here's Pug vs Cat. Cute.
Thanks for listening!

Up a Paddle - Episode 55 - Scary Tales
In this episode I go over the announcements at Anime Expo, discuss the relative hotness of Disney Princesses, and play a segment recorded back on Easter. I also review Enchanted and Monster, because this is the Monster/Fairy Tales episodes.
Here's the time codes if you want to skip ahead. I know I would:
0:35 The News
American Death Note Movie In Development.
It will be interesting to see how this turns out. Will it end up crap like other crappy J-Horror to American Horror movies? We'll have to wait and see.
More rumblings about Arrested Development movie.
We need an Arrested Development movie. Come on!
There are layers upon layers here I can't even begin to comprehend.
Capcom vs Tatsunoko
This looks like it will be an awesome game. Heck, even Morrigan from Darkstalkers has updated graphics. That hasn't happened for at least 13 years. Also there's the Gold Lightan Love
This is why we can't have nice things, Internets. Of course, this is just the tip of the iceberg. Can you imagine what these deviants and onanists are cooking up next. I shudder to think of it.
This monstrousity causes me to shudder as well:
What has 4chan wrought?
Since that was disturbing, I thought I'd bring back teh actual sexy here with Wii Fit Girlfriend
It's almost hypnotic
Now, on to Anime News:
Geneon is back ... Kind of
ADV is also getting titles distributed by Funimation
Funimation sure is making out like a bandit in all of this. Must be all of that Fullmetal Alchemist and Dragon Ball Z money that they have lying around.
I'm not dead yet!
Bandai Visual, now part of Bandai Entertainment
I was really hoping that Bandai would have learned from Bandai Visual's failed marketing tactics, but I guess they aren't going to.
On the other hand, this was a business model I wish would have worked. Order a dvd and it's made for you.
That's it for news
11:45 Email, Awesome
Just like the movies
First off I read an email from Maestro Davinci.
I'm not sure but hoping this is the site you referred to in your email. If not, please send in the right one.
Judging by his email address, this is also a site he is affiliated with:
Here's the mod I mentioned
Super Smash Bros DS
Super Smash Bros Rumble in the Jungle
18:28 Promo - Dave and Joel's Fast Karate for the Gentlemen
19:15 Little Brother Challenge
Admittedly, not the best challenge so far. I should have sprung for the large eggs.
29:40 Disney Princess Poll. It's coming down finally. Ding Dong the Witch is Dead.
35:49 Promoish sort of thing - I Luv the 80's. And I do. Hopefully after this, I'm not banned from listening to the podcast.
38:13 Review - Enchanted
41:45 Review - Monster
ANN Entry for Monster
Watch this show, darn it!
Here's the show opening for Monster, so you can get an idea of the character designs:
1:00:01 Destroy All Podcasts DX promo
1:01:55 Wrap Up
1:03:10 Monster by Matchbook Romance
On Sesame Street, Bert's goldfish were named Lyle and Talbot
Kermit the Frog was left handed
Yeah, this episode kinda got away from me, in terms of quality and coherence, but at least it's over. Until the next recording, anyway. Bwuah ha ha!
Thanks for listening!
