TOO FAT TO LIVE - TOO HUNGRY TO DIE
Sometimes The Internet gets drunk and says something stupid and you want to complain... or let us know how we're doing.
Now there has actually supposedly been a rumor going around about Marvel and Star Wars being in Kingdom Hearts 3 – but actually reading the quote it says fuck all to that effect. I bring this up as it’s relevant to the discussion I am about to pose, and despite their bullshit claim I find it very hard to point to actual evidence that could include Star Wars in the Kingdom Hearts universe other than people’s recent boner over lightsaber redesigns that make folks want a key shaped lightsaber. Since that’s a load of hogwash let’s keep my journalistic integrity intact and move on.
I doubt anyone who’s reading this or even who’s been watching current anime for the past 3 years can recall the title Rainbow. If you think you know the name you likely associate it with some sparkly bubbly throwaway anime, but it’s very much not that. Rainbow is a dark seinen about a group of men imprisoned and then adjusting to life outside of the slammer. It’s like anime’s response to Shawshank Redemption but instead of running to Mexico, there’s boxing.
Here’s a new one for you wrestling fans. If I don’t get lazy I will provide my weekly Monday Night Raw review. It’s tough to write the Raw review on the night of the airing. Let’s face it, Raw is three fucking hours long, and sometimes it’s so bad that I fall asleep before the main event. I won’t be reviewing Smackdown because that show is taped and there are always spoilers, and the show isn’t completely effective towards storylines. They also air mad Raw video packages. Then again, every show airs Raw video packages. So look for my weekly Monday Night Rant! Read more
Hey we actually recorded a podcast last Wednesday, and since it’s Tuesday – that means I can post a podcast. It’s almost like a schedule – good thing it won’t be ruined by Christmas or something. Wait. It totes will be. So this is Christmas-cast because I doubt we’ll even have a proper holi-cast this year.
The year 2014 is coming to a close, and the holiday tradition is upon us. WWE Tables Ladders Chairs (and stairs) appears to be a decent pay per view card, and I’m here to give you my quick picks for this Sunday. Read more
I’ve made it clear on this column before on my love for Space Dandy. This is part because it’s a genuinely surreal/dadaist experience and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Other animes though throw in these sort of crazy elements, and then for the most part they are ignored, or have no point other than ‘lol aren’t we random’.
Right so Alternicon was like 3 weeks ago. Here at Nerdfit though we want you to show up and support us at cons which is why we took so long to release this – because hey man, you should have been there. It in no way has anything to do with Glenn being a spaz and not posting the link until I asked repeatedly.
That shot of the soccer ball droid? That’s J.J. Abrams saying “They see me rollin…”
