Because it’s all Don’s fault. It wouldn’t be a meme if he’d just ignored it, but no, he had to do one as well, and there you go, I saw it and had nothing better to do…. The beginning to the first post from each month of 2008:
Still Alive…Even if Iâ€™m not feeling very well. Still, while Iâ€™m waiting on the first two shows of the new year to download, Iâ€™ve managed to get my 2007 â€œworstâ€ list finished. Now all Iâ€™ve got to do is get, prep, and upload the screenshots for it. Even managed to get a good start on the â€œhonorable mentions list.â€ Iâ€™d like to get a little further into it though, in case I forget something that really should have been on the first list, like last year. (Wrong post. Sigh.) But no rest for the weary. Lots of housecleaning to do, and I need to help someone with their computer, and my brother with some business, and catch up on fansubs, and write my â€œWorst of 2007â€³ post, and run some errands, andâ€¦
February: So I followed a link to Slashdot to read about the second (or third?) broken cable affecting the middle east. More stupid speculation and accusations of â€œAmerican spy efforts suck!â€ than you could shake a cat 6 cable at. But there was at least this one gem among the tinfoil hat ravings:
Iâ€™d been sitting on an order for a while, given that my last waste of money went so well for me. I decided enough time had passed, and reading about the silliness of Ranma 1/2 over at Stevenâ€™s place persuaded me to try another classic 80â€™s/90â€™s series. (Wrong post. This is the correct one.) Got caught up tonight. I have to say, that while I will not forgive this series for wasting a dozen episodes on high-school hijinks and angst, nor will I give it a good score for the same reason; it has finally gotten off its ass and started kicking some instead. Yuuiji mans up, gets his act together, and lays down some serious smack on a small Tomogara. Thereâ€™s nothing left of it when heâ€™s done. When the calvary comes flying in, itâ€™s more a matter of him saving them, as heâ€™s figured out the enemy plan. With his information, they put paid to second tomogara. And then the wheels come off, because there is a third. And this one seems to be damn near unkillable.
Well, the new season has delivered us a bunch of new shows, most of which I admit I havenâ€™t bothered to watch. I have made it a point to catch all three of the fanservice shows thus far, so at least I can talk about those. I also watched what I thought was going to be the most intriguing: Daughter of Twenty Faces. (edit: that was the wrong post, too — the monthly lists aren’t working right.) Iâ€™ve been thinking about the situation implied by this episode, but itâ€™s got to go behind the spoiler tagâ€¦
May: Warning: If you never played Star Wars Galaxies, this is going to be a long, boring post. Long-time readers of both my blogs will remember that I have a bit of a grudge against Sony Online Entertainment. I ranted about what they were doing to screw up with the Vision(tm) of Everquest for a long time; then I jumped ship to Star Wars, only to find out what true evil was.
June: In episode 8 of Kurenai, Murasaki channels Chizuru (last picture). Ah well, it definately explains Chizuruâ€™s continued sucide attempts. Thought I was watching Sayonara Zetsubo Sensei for a few minutes there.
July: Justâ€¦wow. Now that was a kick in the teeth. We are definitely seeing the theme of CG at its best; itâ€™s lonely at the topâ€¦ I donâ€™t know what the writers have been drinking lately, but Iâ€™d like some.
August: Not. A. Trap.
September: Iâ€™m going to be rather busy for a bit. My hurricane thoughts and such will appear at Houblog.
October: Less Taiga Aisaka, more Ryuujiâ€™s MILF, please.
November: Good news is, my order got in and Iâ€™m watching Saber Marionette J. Bad news is, I just donâ€™t have time for blogging about animÃ© any more.
December: Ok, over the weekend, Dr. Heinous was in town, and he loaned me his copy of Tenchi Muyo GXP, which I quite enjoyed. He and I are now discussing which is our favorite, Ryoko or Amane. ( Poor Kirikoâ€¦. too ordinary. )
Hmmm. Not too bad. It actually got kind of interesting around June. Maybe I’ll do a “last post of the month” meme next.
Edit: for some reason, the “monthly archive” was chopping the first few days out of some months. When I went back to add the links, I found and corrected them. Mostly, I think…
