Anime RE-Claimed: Durarara!

I'm a sucker for down to earth yet weird animes: "Tenchi Muyo" & "Burn Up W" comes to mind but "Durarara" is special. Although to be completely honest I haven't watched much of it (mostly due to life issues and free time being incredibly scarce) what I have seen of it I greatly enjoy. So let's talk "Durarara" and see what's what.

Anime RE-Claimed: A Sister's All You Need

I've watched a lot of anime, "Ninja Scrolls", "Bastard", "Vampire Hunter D", "Serial Experiments Lain" and so on and THIS, this is easily one of those "What am I watching?" animes. Let me back up and start at the beginning. This little gem came to me via Instagram when someone posted the opening scene of the 1st episode and that scene is more than likely infamous now and a good indicator as to what you're about to experience watching this show. That being said, this show hits a number of notes for me and while I won't be binge watching it as much "My Hero Academia" (easily best anime of last year), it's still one of those down to earth animes that still manage to be bat-sh*t crazy. Let's dive in and I'll give you the rundown.

STRANGE LOG: Lord Explosion Murder!

Oh no, look it's another "Strange Log" and yet not a real article...why isn't this a real article?

Adventures In Drawing Women

Yeah, it's been a good while since I've written anything and there's a valid reason to that, I'm father, have been ever since April so free time is quickly vanishing that and I'm trying to spend more time with my family and overall I'm in kinda of a weird place in life right, we'll get to that. That being said previously I've written an article about my inability to draw women, consider this a follow up to said article as I've (at least in my estimation) greatly improved on my ability to draw women. So here's some things I've discovered on my adventures in drawing women...

The "Infinity War" Trailer

Well, Christmas has come early for nerds and geeks everywhere as the MOST anticipated trailer has dropped, yes, "Hanna Montana II" has arrived! No, I'm obviously talking about the semi-conclusion to The Marvel Cinematic Universe "Avengers: Infinity War". The build up to the entire MCU has been reached and we'll be checking it out as soon as next year. Suffice it to say this is the culmination of a 9 Year project starting all the way back in 2008 with "Iron Man". So let's get to the trailer and see what's what.

Horror & Capability

For the longest time I've been thinking quite a bit about horror movies and horror as a genre entirely. I've made videos about my ideas of what horror movies really are, they're not about what they're about there more about the idea of what they're about. As an example, "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" isn't about some chainsaw wielding nutcase ready to hack you and your friends up, it's actually about being on the outside of an inside joke, the fear of not knowing. Everyone in "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" was aware they were leading those guys to their doom EXCEPT for the main characters. That's what I mean; "Halloween" wasn't about a killer, it's about an unstoppable, unreasonable force. But I've recently found myself returning to more Lovecraftian notions of horror and really re-thinking what makes horror horror and what exactly makes it scary and I've discovered it comes down to one factor, what is that factor? Find after the break!
