Anime of the day is Shirobako, from 2014, a not entirely unrealistic look inside the anime industry. Yes, everything is a bit too clean, but the depiction of people working unreasonable hours under insane constraints for crappy pay is pretty accurate.

It's also a great show in its own right.

It's Not A Phase Mom Video of the Day





So, just in the first moments - Slayers, Evangelion, 3x3 Eyes, Escaflowne - to be fair, in that case the guy just has long hair, he's not cross-dressing, and El Hazard. And then Project A-ko, Sorcerer Hunters, Dual: Parallel Trouble Adventure, Dragon Half, Ranma, and Utena...

Which all came out around the same time.

Okay, maybe it was a phase.


Disclaimer: It was definitely a phase.

What are practical solutions to avoid being ransomed? Eliminate outside email that is not from pre approved senders?

Run obscure software that no one wants to hack?

23 Nice AMV Pixy, featuring some of my favorite shows of recent viewing, mostly thanks to your excellent anime palate. Last night, I finally finished Escaflowne and the entire journey certainly was a complete and worthwhile experience filled with fine action, memorable music and iconic mechs.

The overall plot definitely needed more time to fully expand upon its many plot points and mounting conflicts so the conclusion was a little disappointing and the romance a tad contrived for me.

Still, I would definitely recommend the show simply for Escalowne herself, as that mech in dragon or robot form definitely hit the solid spot in my heart to remain one of the best mechs I've encountered.

And the music never fails to capture the key moments of the constant drama and all the praise begins with the beautiful intro, deep orchestra for the battles and of course Escaflowne's personal theme is perfection.

As for the characters, the main leads- King Van and Allen are awesome for the most part and the side characters like Dryden, Folken,, Eriya & Naria and especially Dilandau all greatly enhanced the story's significance.

25 Chances are the teamsters just contacted their partners in the communist party and sorted things out.

The Teamsters are such a funny union, at least in the film industry, their leadership is so communist like most unions, but their members tend to be very right leaning, with so many often listening to Rush even in a van full of actors/producers/crew types, as well as many not being afraid to be open Trump supporters (not afraid basically because they can't be fired) It's pretty funny to egg them on around others on set, since everyone is afraid to talk back to them, so all the lefties need to just sit there biting their tongues, lest they never get a ride anywhere on time again.

26 And to furthermore, I also need to address the issue some might have with the series main voice, Hitomi. While, some might negatively reflect upon her constant complaining and disjointed romantic affairs as an Achilles heel for the show, I will defend the lady as an overall good protagonist for the sake she is self-aware flawed person developing in a state of chaos that we experienced at home for all its ups and downs. Did I enjoy the result of her final climax for her emotional journey?

Yes, simply for its honesty that we can expect a too idealistic conclusion and the love she shared is merely the starting point in the extended track meet that all relationships endure.

30 From a story at WZs:
"A driver believed to have been drunk or high plowed into demonstrators protesting the shooting of a black man in Minneapolis and killed a woman.

The man - who is white, and who police think was under the influence - was pulled from his car and beaten by the crowd before being taken away in handcuffs by police late on Sunday in the Uptown area of Minneapolis."

Also, the 'protestors' were playing volleyball in the middle of the street at midnight.

**

The US has had 40K+ new cases annually ever since the 1990s. Every year, year in and year out, for a virus with an extremely known route of transmission, an extremely predictable group of carriers, and a virus that could be essentially eradicated if it weren't so noble and good.

If people aren't "aware" of HIV/AIDS, there isn't anything to help now.

88 All stories published by the publishing industry are to be taken with a grain of salt. In fact, I'd say they should not considered to be remotely close to reality unless there's evidence they have to provide.

***

There's even a term for it. Gell-Mann? You notice the news is wrong about every aspect of something you're experienced / knowledgeable in, but believe their other stories.

They're ALL wrong.

92 I used Palm phones, loved my Pre. Then HP bought Palm and flushed it. My wife had an Android phone and I hated it. So I went with Apple. No reason to change. It is fine.

Thank you. We're very proud of our girl. A lot of work went into her recent success but that work would be as nothing if Delilah wasn't a quality dog who loves to be in the ring.

Maybe I shouldn't talk so much, but we live in a depressing age when bad people are rewarded for nothing and good folks are driven to the wall. A little good news can't hurt.

98 "but believe their other stories."

I don't.

Anything published by the Conde Nast empire, the NYT, CNN, the WaPo, CBS, etc is a lie to me. Even weather reports are meaningless.

I think January should be National Shame Month.

Where everyone disconnects from social media, makes a nice cup of tea, sits down, and says... "jeez, what hell am i actually doing with all this bullshit?"

Can you run a web server on your iPhone, scan a network or edit your hosts file?

Hint: no, Apple doesn't want you too.

My wife and I had nice rooted Samsung S3 phones that ran all sorts of system applications, but the sudden death bug killed them both in the same week.

What's up with crunchyroll?

It used to have a pretty great library of old and new anime but it seems a lot smaller now.

F'rinstance, Shirobako was easily available up until a few months ago then nothing.

Has one of the other services now become the Big Dog in anime streaming?

Apple?

If you're a high end user of a certain type, and know a lot about computers and software and enjoy spending your time working around and fixing a ton of lame-ass problems, yeah..Apple isn't for you.

If you're some shmoe like me who wants a computer that's a black box but does all the simple tasks you want it to do, without problems ( as a general rule) - like word-processing and surfing the net, etc,
then Apple is for you.

Also, if you want all of your personal info to go to one evil corporate entity instead everyfuckingcorporate entity in the world, then Apple is for you.

106 Apple's been an arrogant elitist ripoff from day one.
I remember when they reported on a meeting between the top admin of Apple (Jobs and everyone else. This was back in the early years when they only did computers) and it was reported that some wanted to lower the price just a little bit.
Jobs and some French guy went ballistic. Said that the people who bought Apple deserved to get ripped off and besides no one wanted to give up any part of their bonus.
Apple should've been in the dustbin of computer history by now. A mere footnote but the ripped off someone (I forget who. They ripped off so many computer tech companies) and got the lead on the phone market and surprisingly it took off. (bet it surprised them too)

And they've been having slaves make their shit for decades and charging the snob leftists that would swagger around telling everyone how they were part of a small minority that used the very best computer. Why it had to be the best, it cost so much.
Same with the phones. Then worst thing happened; Microsoft started to imitate them and made what was already borderline into something that was just a source of angst and anger.

I've hated Apple from the beginning.

Vrv started offering Crunchy Roll as one of its many channels for only a couple of dollars more that CR alone. Over the last couple of years Vrv has been dropping channels and now only has a handful, while reducing what those channels offer as well. I'm going to finish Naruto Shippuden and then drop it since Case Closed isn't worth $10 a month. I'd love to know the alternatives as well.

108 In fairness to Dual, it's contribution to "the phase" was a spoof of what Eva did.
El Hazard takes the cake in audacity, though. Not only do they disguise the protagonist as a woman for pretty much the first half of the series, but they also have the lesbian girlfriend if the woman he's pretending to be sneak into his bedroom for a little fun.
