I would have loved to have seen a Rescue Rangers movie.  There was supposed to be one, but it was canceled after the DuckTales movie flopped.

I am Adam, Prince of Eternia, and defender of the secrets of Castle Greyskull.  This is Cringer, my "fearless" friend.  Fabulous secret powers were revealed to me the day I held aloft my magic sword and said, "By the Power of Greyskull!"

Psst.  Hey buddy.  Here.  This is a magic sword.

Magic sword?  Riiiiight....

Yeah, all you have to do is hold it over your head and yell "By the Power of Greyskull."

....  Riiiight...
captpackrat: (WTF?)
All in the same show!  Holy Jinkies!

Cat Shit One, the Animated Series is finally finished!  It features the most adorable bunnies ever, shooting and blowing the hell out of terrorists.

See it at

This list seems to be missing a few things, like Spirit and Return of the King. It also only covers movies, not serials like The Mysterious Cities of Gold or Voltron.

Hyoooooge list behind cut. )

I finally managed to download a copy of the album Tin Tin by the group, err...  Tin Tin.  My roommate has their second album, Astral Taxi, as an LP, and I had found an MP3 version of it a couple months ago, but I was having trouble finding their first album.   Astral Taxi was fairly easy to Google for, but searching for "Tin Tin" yields mostly dogs and French comic books.  Neither was ever released as a CD; both of these MP3 albums are rips from the original vinyl.    FUCK YOU RIAA

Here is one of the songs from the album, and probably their biggest hit:  Toast and Marmalade for Tea

And going from obscure music to (semi) obscure cartoons, The Mysterious Cities of Gold is FINALLY being released on DVD!  I managed to catch the entire thing on Nickelodeon some 20 years ago or so (but I never saw more than a couple episodes of Sparticus and the Sun Beneath the Sea).  I've already pre-ordered it from Amazon.

The Japanese are so freaking weird.

I discovered that Voltron: Defender of the Universe is available on DVD!  *squeal!*  I loved this show when I was a kid!  Well, the Lion Voltron anyway, I always thought the Vehicle Voltron was stupid.  Even through I hadn't seen the show in decades, I could still quote the opening narration.

My SO and I watched the first 4 episodes last night.  It's a lot cheesier than I remember.  Especially Sven's voice.   "Kitty is excited" became a running gag for us.   Still loads of fun though.

I remarked that this show seemed awfully violent for a cartoon, but apparently it was much toned down from the original Japanese GoLion series.

Unfortunately, only the first 3 of 5 volumes has been released.  Wah!

Gee, you go blind for a few days and you fall over 200 posts behind on the friends page.

I finished the course of drugs for my eyes around the beginning of November, but it didn't seem to take.  My eyes were getting better while on the drugs, and I'd gone nearly a month without any problems, but then the corneal erosions began again last week.  A few days ago, I had a massive erosion in my right eye and a moderately bad one in my left eye, which left me nearly blind for a few days.  I had to spend $100 I didn't have to go back to the eye doctor, and this time he put me on a 4 month drug course.   120 days of taking Doxycycline.  Ick.  The pain subsided yesterday, and my vision was starting to improve today.  I still have slight double-vision in my left eye, and my right eye is still badly blurred.  Fortunately, the human eye has remarkable healing abilities, so my eyesight hopefully will be back to normal in a few days.

I wanted to have the doctor cauterize one of the two lachrymal ducts in my right eye, but he wasn't willing to do so at this time.   The procedure, which is irreversible, blocks one of the ducts which drain tears from the eye.   This would help keep my eye from drying out at night, which reduces the chances of an erosion.  I'd had the procedure done several years ago on my left eye, and it has been relative free of erosions for the past year or two.  It's a drastic step, but it's worked for me once.  (I've tried punctal plugs, but they either fall out or cause irritation)

Nobody told me what their plans were for Thanksgiving, so I didn't take the turkey out of the freezer until Monday.  I use the Good Eats Roast Turkey recipe, and I always let the turkey brine for at least a full day or two, so it was way too late to have anything ready in time.   But it turned out even if I'd taken the turkey out last week it still wouldn't have mattered, it's been sitting in the fridge for 6 days and is still hard as a rock.

Didn't so anything for Thanksgiving or the Day After, I was doped up on Vicodin, so I slept through most of it.

I went to see Happy Feet today.  It sucked.  The animation was fabulous, so warm and fluffy, and the movements of the penguins (when they were acting like penguins) looked totally natural.   But the plot and especially the ending sucked rocks.   The movie had Robin Williams in it, which is usually enough to deduct 2 stars just by his presence (I detest the man, he's just not funny!), but his performance was fairly toned down, at least for him.

My SO bought me a nice carving knife and fork to add to my cutlery collection.  I've got one of almost every common type of kitchen knife now, except a tomato knife, a bird's beak, and a boning knife.  I'm gonna need a bigger block.  Yes, I packrat some of the darnedest things.

A great bit of animation:

You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll run screaming in terror!  ;-)

My favorite Private SNAFU cartoon!

I was flipping through channels tonight and came across a show called Wulin Warriors.

It's like a Japanese version of Thunderbirds. It is Bunraku, Japanese puppet theater, but with special effects and camera angles for television.

It made absolutely no sense whatsoever, but it looks very very strange.

One of my all-time favorite Christmas programs was on tonight, 'Twas the Night Before Christmas. Lousy bastards at ABC Family cut out Father Mouse singing "Give Your Heart a Try"

(Not work safe, but only because people keep singing rather loudly about porn.)

One of the greatest Flash animations of all time, Nightmare City now has a sequel, Nightmare City: Catastrophe

All I can say is "WOW!"
