A truly great man passed away at the age of 47. Madhouse founder Maruyama announced on his twitter than an important Madhouse Studio director had passed away, but didn’t say who, but it seems that the director was Satoshi Kon. Satoshi Kon started off as a manga artist and editor. He was a great director, who  made such films like Perfect Blue, Paranoia Agent, and Paprika. He had a tendency to go with the subjective reality theme, which I’ve always been a fan of. It’s a great loss to the anime industry, and Madhouse as well, which has been having some troubles. He was also working with them on a feature film called Yume Miru Kikai.



Holy fuck that’s creepy

August 23, 2010

So about a week or less ago, I began lurking /x/ and other such faggotry, and a popular topic was Slenderman and Marble Hornets. So probably a mixture of boredom and intrigue took hold of me, and I decided to watch the series of videos that are Marble Hornets. The videos are about a guy named Alex who is beginning to experience a mental breakdown brought on by a mysterious figure that is following him. It really is interesting, and creepy enough to make you want to leave some lights on. It certainly was so for me. The absolute creepy factor that surrounds Slenderman, the impressive work by the Marble Hornets crew, and my innate paranoia all left me sleepless for a couple nights. I suppose I am just a wuss, but I found this genuinely disturbing, yet exhilarating. It’s almost like riding a roller coaster you’re scared of, and upon leaving it you want another go, if not only for spike in adrenaline you experienced. The videos are all well done, and the acting isn’t too bad. It’s not the only thing with Slenderman though, and a lot of the lore behind him is rather interesting (and creepy)

I don’t know what the fuck happened, apparently CBC suspened the broadcast last week, so Tokyo MX will be airing it on Sundays. I thought something was up when I didn’t see any subs or raws out, so I guess that explains it. A real bitch since it was a great show, but 2 days aren’t too bad I suppose.

Drowned in all the other faggotry I listened to, I forgot completely about this ole boy here. “Colour It In” is just one of those albums that I can listen to start to finish, no problem. It is your typical indie rock, but it just somehow manages to be something more. The sweet lick of the guitar, the firm grip of the vocals, it can be quite addictive. It has all the staples of British indie rock, but able to set itself apart in its own way
