Can't find a YouTube link, but I'm really digging the new Trans Am EP, California Hotel.
I have basically the opposite reaction. It really rubs me the wrong way when companies use any kind of political ideals, progressive or not, to promote themselves. On the other hand, I think the fact that a piece of art can be responded to and have its meaning changed is what makes it interesting. Of course, not being the artist himself, it's easy for me to say that.
I picked up WarioWare Touched and played through the story mode this weekend. The demo was actually the first game in the series I played, back when the DS first came out. EB Games had it set up, and I completely forgot what I went in for. The two GBA installments are some of my favourite games on the console, and Touched doesn't disappoint.
As always, I've been playing a lot of NHL 2K10. With the right gameplay sliders, it's probably the best hockey sim I've played. I let up a little with a 4-2 lead last night and paid the price, having to finish the game in overtime. There are no shortcuts to victory, just as it should be.
"Everybody Wants To Rule the World" might be a perfect song.
I didn't get that from the article. What gave you that impression?
What got me interested in the franchise as a whole was actually the much more recent series Casshern Sins, which is only very loosely based on the original series.
Casshan and Casshern Sins appeal to me in different ways. A lot of Casshan's appeal is simple entertainment. I like the way it looks and sounds, and I like seeing Casshan defeat the enemy of the week using his distinctive acrobatic fighting style.
But what really draws me to Casshan more than most series like it is the travelogue aspect of the show. I love seeing the effect that the conflict between Casshan and Andro Force has on civilians and how those civilians affect the conflict. It's not all that ambitious, but it makes Casshan more interesting than the average action anime.
I wish I'd thought to recommend Casshan, because I'm a big fan of the franchise as a whole. That said, I found the original series tough to get into at first too. But it's got fantastic sound design and manages to avoid getting monotonous by introducing sort of a travelogue-like feel. The fights, although they reuse a lot of animation, are kept really fresh too. If you do decide to continue, there are some great episodes later on.
Put yourself out there. Try to ignore that fear of rejection. You still have trouble believing this, but people like you more than you think.
You're going to miss the deadline to apply for your first choice of university. Don't worry about it. You choose one that wasn't even on your radar, and it makes you way happier than you would have been otherwise.
Try not to waste so much time. Do things that actually make you happy.
Things are going to be tough sometimes, and it might feel like they'll never get better. But you're here now, and that's what's important.
