Up a Paddle - Episode 49 - War Stories, Part II
This episode I review Leji Matsumoto's The Cockpit. If this episode seems a little off, it's because half of it was recorded before Christmas and the other half after. I hope you all had a pleasant holiday. I sure did.
W00t is 2007's word of the year Woot!
Gokusen 3 set to air April 2008 Woot!
Itsudatte My Santa - recalled. Meh!
Nintendo along with Gamestop now selling IOU's. (how's that for up to the minute reporting?)
The Hobbit movie finally confirmed. Woot! of relief
Chow Yun Fat is Master Roshi in the Dragonball movie. (Woot!?!)
Science time. Trees Killed the Woolly Mammoth? Damn dirty trees!
Arrested Development Movie?
On average, a child uses 730 crayons by their 10th birthday.
Conspiracy Theory Corner - Chupathingy redux
But cryptzoologist fans, don't worry, There has been a unicorn siting.
Also, another long thought extinct beast was spotted in the Wild. Duke Nukem Forever has a teaser trailer out.
What I'm playing
Mario and Sonic: At the Olympic Games
Fun minigames. Some are a little complex. Get you going, pumped
Super Mario Galaxy
It sucks. Worst game of the year. Except instead of worst, best (stay tuned for more in that regard). This is no Super Mario Sunshine my friend.
What I'm watching
Just finished From the Earth to the Moon. I got in on a Black Friday sale for this one. It's still cheap, though and well worth it
For a brief interlude
Cthulhu Claus is Coming to Town
by Smart Bomb Radio
A fear of long words is, ironically, called "Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia"
This one's spoilerriffic as well, so do yourself a favor and watch the shows first. There are 20 minute OVAs and they are well worth your time.
The Angry Dome
World War II games are the tool of the devil
An analysis of mammalian bite force, corrected for body size, shows that the Tasmanian Devil has the strongest bite of any living mammal.
