This is Epth Nation

Epth is a state of mind, not a place. Reading this will give you a virtual drivers license in that state, but you'll still need to be 21 to purchase alcohol. And you can't get any there anyway, so stop asking.

Time to Take a Stand

Today I saw a very disturbing ad on the TV -- it was for the bad Robin Williams family movie RV. No, Mr. Williams' mugging wasn't the disturbing part. It was the very end of the ad, when a disembodied voice said that this giant flaming bag o' crap was available in "DVD and Blu-ray disk." All of a sudden we've decided that "Blu-ray" is the High-Definition disk of choice for America just because Sony said so? Like we'd ever pick something with such a dumb name. We need to unite and make them name it something better, or just pick a different format altogether. An American format. How about "Freedom Disks"? Wait, you're right -- that's just as dumb. How about simply calling them HD disks? You know, this is exactly how that whole DVD+/DVD- RAM/ROM thing happened. Think about it.

Oh, and America? You don't have talent. Just because 10 million people watch that bad show doesn't make it true. A dude with bad hair just played "We Will Rock You" using water glasses. This is the kind of thing that succeeds on Japanese TV, not American.

I really don't have a point here, admittedly. I probably should have led with that fact. It all seems so anti-Japan. As a counterpoint: Anime.

    This blog is like the Dallas Observer. You want to pick it up and read it everytime you see it, but then you realize that it only has new stuff like once a week. You need to get a new job that lets you write more.

    P.S. Let's win the lottery.

    Hey, go back and read some old stuff for the time being. It's all great -- and if you forgot about it, it's new to you.
