Another week, another round of strange and interesting articles. Let’s dive in below the fold.
- Pastor Dwight McKissic at SBC Voices wrote an important piece on the Alabama US Senate Special Election about who’s voice truly matters the most – Roy Moore’s voice or those of the many credible accusers.
- Martin Shkreli’s assets are being seized by prosecutors and, as such, this will include the infamous, ridiculously expensive single issue Wu Tang Clan album, Once Upon a Time in Shaolin. Here’s hoping the US Attorney’s Office releases this album for the world to finally hear.
- College Humor has a funny article asking the internet to stop inventing this which already exist. It keeps happening, hip, genuine writers come up with these things…that are actually other things which have existed forever. Check out the article. It’s snark is entertaining.
- NintendoLife posted an article about…Street Fighter II X Transformers. With a video. Oh man, the video. You have to see the video. Seriously. I want the Bison/Vega Transformer so much…and I have no idea what I’d do with it, but it looks amazing! I may have a problem.
- Otaquest has information and a trailer for the Batman Ninja movie. Wait – what is this? It’s an anime film coming in 2018 where Batman is a Ninja in Feudal Japan. The Joker has come to as an ancient warlord trying to unite Japan under his evil banner. It looks crazy and I want to see it like right this second.
- R86 at Beneath the Tangles is a Professor and is answering reader questions about life, the universe, and everything. His most recent piece can be read here!
- Here’s a few anime/manga/visual novel industry interviews recently from around the blogosphere:
Twitter recommendations this week are going to be super controversial in that I have 4 of them. Okay, not really. Here we go:
- Shower Thoughts – Shower thoughts is a collection of random comments people submit about weird thoughts they’ve had in the shower. It’s kind of like Jack Handy’s (or my) deep thoughts. It’s fun and worth following.
- Kim Back Writes – Kim is a work-at-home Mom who is very clever and friendly on Twitter. Her tweets (and the RTs she finds) are worth checking out if you enjoy funny parents!
- Out of Context BTVS – This account is literally comprised of random screenshots taken out of context from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. That’s all this account does and I absolutely love it. You should follow it. No really.
- Nate Ming – Nate is a staff member at Crunchyroll/VRV working in customer support. He talks about anime, culture, music, video games, and whatever else he feels like talking about. I know him and I don’t agree on everything, but he’s generally courteous to differing opinions and offers a reasonable/interesting voice online.
Music this week will be the ridiculously catchy and straight out of the 80s feel “Shut Up and Dance” by Walk the Moon. It’s so good. I could listen to this on loop…
