Skyward Sword

In my opinion, the best part of the Skyward Sword was the staff credits.
The video is completely spoiler free, just awesome music.
I especially love how the main theme is Zelda's lullaby reversed.
It's too bad that besides the main theme, the in-game music is pretty dull.

Totoro For Every Season

Totoro for Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter.
Spring is a flower field, it would be nice to find something more obvious.
Summer is a sand sculpture, not too many cool Totoro Sand Sculptures out there.
Fall is a Halloween Pumpkin, there are lots of those.
Winter is a Totoro Snowmen, there are lots of cool ones.

A Big Giant Totoro

The Scariest Japanese Film Ever

Seriously, this movie looks terrifying based on the cover art.
Not at all like a Robin Williams cross-dressing comedy.
Mrs. Doubtfire, catering to a whole different audience in Japan.

Ah! My Goddess...

Throughout the years...

A compilation of Belldandy, one portrait from each Volume.
Mr. Fujishima's art has changed a lot, hasn't it?
Especially between 8 and 9.  I like 10 the best.
I think the characters are too round now.

Gremlin World

Gremlin World is my friend's webcomic. Not only as his friend, but as a manga reader, I suggest you give it a try.  It's an action comedy in the vein of Excel Saga.  Here's the summary blurb:

Do you know Gremlin World? What?! No?! Grr... Well I'll spell it out for you then: It's a crazy adventure full of fighting, random comedy, cute girls, hot dudes, honeyed espionage, a bunny-eared chick, and screaming eye lasers! And believe me, there's much, much more! Crazy Potatoes! Can Dr. Pinhead's creation ever become the monster she was meant to be?!

Cheering For Legend Of Zelda

All from Ocarina of Time.  I just finished Skyward Sword... thought 
it was too slow and linear to be a great game.  I still favor the 2D Zeldas.

Rockman: The Heavy Metal

Pretty awesome imagining of Megaman characters into a traditional 2d fighting game format.  Art is by Kei-Suwabe.  His Pixiv link is here.  He makes awesome stuff.

Greatest Weakness

Took these from some Reddit thread.

What's the best answer you've ever given in a job interview to the question: "What is your biggest weakness?"

A few years ago I was applying to work for a middleschool in PA and had this conversation:
Q: "What's your greatest weakness?"
A: "I'm just a little bit too attracted to teenage girls."
Q" ..."
A: "Just kidding! It's actually that I don't know when a joke is inappropriate."

Me: I'd say my biggest weakness is distinguishing between fact and fiction, reality and fantasy.
Interviewer: And your biggest strength?
Me: I'm Batman.

My friends tell me I am condescending. Condescending is when you talk down to people.

"Cookie dough ice cream."

"I'd say my biggest weakness is that I work too hard. Also, I steal staplers....... hey, is that a Swingline?"

One applicant once told me, with a straight face, that his biggest weakness was upper body strength, but he'd been going to the gym, so that should qualify him..."

Bullets. Definitely gonna have to go with bullets on this one, Bob.
BULLETS! My only weakness...

That I am unemployed.

"Singing, definitely singing, but I promise if I work here I won't sing, so it's all good."

"Stairs." People don't know if it's okay to laugh at cripple jokes from a cripple, it's hilarious.

When asked that question by my third interviewer, I took a deep sigh and said "Well I'm addicted to heroin, and some employers have a hard time understanding that work will always take a back seat to that."

Print a business card that says "Sometimes my overpreparedness comes across as arrogance."  Hand it to the interviewer when asked.


I find this guy's comics really fun.  See more over at asaekkiga

The Life Ending Adventure

One of those ridiculously cheaply difficult flash games.  It's a fun way to spend an hour or so, unless you easily get frustrated.


Satsui no Hadou Shirizu

I can't really claim to know exactly what or why this is, but it looks like an imagining of random Japanese pop culture icons into Street Fighter 4 styled video game portraits.  The art is by Kei-Suwabe (who also has a pixiv page) of Metajan Requiem, I just organized all the illustrations into an easy to browse format.  I think this is his coolest work (although his other art is good too), I'd definitely play the game.  See how many characters you recognize!
