A truck driver in the Chiba Prefecture of Japan was arrested last Friday for property damage done at an entrance to an apartment that belonged to a lady he liked. Did he graffiti his name in a heart on her wall? Nope. Did he nail a love letter to her door written in his blood? Naw, that’s old school. He started a new tradition by urinating through her mail slot on the door and into her home. Now that’s a way to show your love! More »
Popcorn and the movies. Television without commercials. Yoo-Hoo and a glazed donut. Some things in life are just perfect for each other. Video games and music are one of those things. While gamers are unable to control the requirement to earn that last gold trophy/achievement, they are able to control what pumps through their speakers while doing so with custom in-game soundtracks. To help change up that stale rotation of old-time favorites, the Wirebot bloggers will be providing a suggested playlist every Friday. Our recommendations this week include songs from: Dance Gavin Dance, All That Remains, Team Teamwork and a few others. More »
It’s a fact: girls (most of them anyways) don’t like bugs. There’s just something about those creepy, crawly little pests that send women into a fright. But Nausicaä, the heroine and star of Nausicaä of the Valley of Wind, isn’t like every girl. She likes-nay, LOVES bugs and is able to communicate with them unlike us spider squashing, raid wielding, bug bombing ruffians. More »

From Swandiary: The excitement for New Moon just won’t cease. Proof? A lot of you sunk your fangs into last month’s SwanDiary giveaway of an autographed Justin Chon headshot. The giveaway has ended and I’m happy to announce the winner, but before I do so — please know one thing: Justin Chon may play human Eric Yorkie, but you can’t actually sink your fangs into his headshot. It won’t bleed. More »

The trailer is now available on the main website here. Now you don’t have to put up with the crappy camera versions previously available on Youtube. And it looks even more delicious now, but it’s studio Deen. I’m sure they’ll find some way to screw it up. If they don’t then it’ll be a pleasant surprise. I still want to watch it no matter what though, even if everyone says it’s terrible. If you watched the F/SN anime and remember episode 14, you’ll know what I’m looking forward to seeing.
