The Raptormobile gets an Upgrade

Sunday, October 9th, 2011

I’d been looking for a way to hook up my mp3 player to my car radio ever since I found out that listening to headphones while driving is relatively illegal. At first I tried an FM transmitter, which worked great the 10% of the time it didn’t produce a static-garbled mess. Then I came across […]

Any “Top Anime” List without Detroit Metal City can go to Hell

Thursday, December 31st, 2009

A lot of bloggers have recently posted their Top N Anime of the Decade lists. I’ve never cared to write these kinds of trendy posts (though I’m more than happy to criticize them). Even if I did get in on the posts, the vast majority of my readers wouldn’t care that it was part of […]

Detroit Metal City Is NOT Over

Tuesday, December 30th, 2008

RaptorCon 2008

Sunday, September 21st, 2008

I was planning to report on Anime Weekend Atlanta, but Hoshi broke her sacred vow to suck up to me by not finding me a place to stay. Luckily, I discovered another convention right in town! Best of all, it was conveniently located in my new apartment (not this overpriced dump). I hopped into my […]
