Need I Say More?

I am different. You are different. This started differently and progressed without intention. Long evenings without harmless untruths. It was quixotic and confidential.  Trials were made and times got hard.  Everything always got better, but time ways always too short.  

We're silly and horrible people, but you are awesome and  I am awesome. We're not alone but certainly in our own world. We don't always agree, but we can compromise and most importantly you put up with my quirks

Thank you for being different.  Need I say more?


Dear Hollywood: An Open Letter to the Hardworking Men and Women in the Entertainment Industries

The Quantum World – A New Song By Symphony Of Science


Help me rescue @JapanaRadio & @WNOHGB!

A dear friend of mine has a project dear to him that is in risk of going under. If any of you are Anime or Jpop music fans, I'd love for you to take a listen to Japan-a-Radio. It is an online radio station for Jpop and Anime music. Right now, Japan-a-Radio runs out of my friend's house on a T1 connection that he pays for himself with the assistance of donations and paid subscriptions to Japan-a-Radio (you can still listen to Japan-a-Radio for free still, it just has some adverts in it).

Not only am I good friends with the person who runs Japan-a-Radio but I also am a heavy user of another project of his that is run off of the same T1 line (that is also in risk). It's a Star Trek themed MOO that I've been playing for about two years now, I wrote about it here to get more players in the game.

Anyhow, this T1 line needs help and not only is it's livelihood important to my friend but it is important to me as well. If there is anything you guys can do to help out, that would be awesome. I've donated myself, but I can't give much more than I already have. However, as proof that I have put my own money up on this project I have a picture of the receipt for my donation.

How can you help? Obviously the most awesome way is by directly donating or buying a subscription to Japan-a-Radio here is the Donation page. I personally don't like asking strangers for money, so I would be just as thrilled if you could just go listen to Japan-a-Radio and spread the word. With luck, some one will appreciate the station and buy a subscription or drop a tip to Japan-a-Radio.

Please don't hesitate to contact me for any questions or you can reach out to my friend @Otaking on twitter if you have any questions about this :)


Some Poppy Songs I Think You Ought to Hear

Clipped from: (share this clip)

I love the internet. Seriously, the internet makes me happy.  It's incredible to run across something by accident that both made me gloriously happy and slightly sad at the same time.

A long time ago, in a state far, far away…

It is a period of Tia Marie's high school years. Rebel skater boys decided to form a ska band, the lead singer was Tia Marie's first real crush.  Magic Dave was quite handsome, played guitar, had a singing voice to melt the heart of any teenage girl in the rural area and an odd sense of humour.

Imagine if you will Tia behaving like Knives Chau when she heard "Launchpad McQuack" for the first time…Yeah I was one of those fangirls, now that I'm much older I can stand to admit to these freakishly girly behaviours of mine.  

I could listen to Dave sing for hours on end and he wasn't bad on the eyes either.  I think you guys should totally buy this Album, it has a lot of sentimental value to me.  Not only does it bring back some of the weirder memories of my teenage years, but I get to hear Dave's voice again.  Dave's singing is going to live on forever (hopefully) but sadly he did not.  Dave's life was taken away from him far to early.  

If you like ska music then you should click through the clip above and go buy that album. Do it now.  You know you want to.  You'll make Tia happy and the Distorted Penguins happy too.
