    You're holding it wrong.



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.

1 One of the psychotic villains of Escaflowne, I understand was canonically a girl who was kidnapped and forcibly brainwashed and 'transformed' into a boy/young man.

2 Putin has almost certainly concluded that he wants to try helping the US boog happen on his terms. It is unlikely that he will keep the 'big secret' of Biden's level of mental function. The Dems will blame all awareness of such on him, and Putin will cooperate with them, because he wants injuries. Putin's problem here is that he has his head up his rear, and has as much awareness of how it will go down as Biden, Harris, Obama and Xi do.

3 Given that the entire current administration is a bunch of wankers, your point is...?

Also, it is becoming clear that there is a race to see whether Slow Joe or Harridan gets knifed in the back first.  I am still going with my prediction.

4 I strongly doubt that Putin has any interest in jailing or executing me, so he has that over Biden['s handlers].

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
