kaijucast:

THE ULTIMATE GODZILLA FAN

The voting continues! I’m in the top four, which is a great place to be, but I definitely need help to break into the top three. 

I know I looks like a crazy old beardy man, but I really have dedicated years and years of my life to the #kaiju genre and am totally in need of your support to win this thing.

Here’s my kaiju resume:

1. I used to run The Shrine of Gamera which was (until wikipedia came around) the best location for information on the Gamera series. Technically, the shrine still exists - it’s just really dusty up in there…
2. I was the webmaster for Henshin! Online from about 2002 until 2005.
3. In 2004 I put on a week-long Godzilla Film Festival at the Hollywood Theatre here in Portland, Oregon.
4. I went to the premiere of Godzilla Final Wars in Hollywood and was able to give Godzilla his birthday card from the film fest.
5. When I was given the opportunity to travel to Tokyo for work, I took my only free day and found my way to Toho Studios just to get a photo with the large Godzilla statue.
6. In 2009 I started the Kaijucast - the first podcast that was 100% dedicated to Godzilla (at least the first one on iTunes). It started out as a monthly thing but throughout the years, I had too much content and we had to add another episode per month. Five years long and still going strong!
7. I have a full tattoo sleeve of Godzilla monsters on my right arm.
8. On our last trip to Japan, my friends dubbed me “American Kaiju Professor” because of my extensive knowledge and passion for the genre.
9. I have a pretty strong collection of Godzilla (and crew) merchandise.

There are only two more days to vote (it ends Friday at 11:59pm PT), please help send me to London! Please vote and share to boost this signal!

KILL ALL BRONIES

No see this isn’t the work bronies, this is the work of the Cloppers. You need to know the difference so innocent blood isn’t spilled during the slaughter. 

ALL BRONIES

It’s worse than it’s said here.  They specifically asked the bronies to leave the disabled kid/character alone.  So naturally, they attacked the character as ‘pandering’ and being ‘too PC’ and when asked to please NOT turn it into a porn character, they went out of their way to make as much porn as possible.

^ Not true.
Kindly read
Or better yet:

Now stop spreading bullshit. People have drawn porn, yes, many without realizing it was actually an OC, but regardless of your stance on that the kid understands that it’s the internet (he’s 17) and isn’t against it at all, nor does he want to censor anyone.

THEY HAVE THE ACE ATTORNEY OFFICIAL MANGA IN MY LAW LIBRARY I AM CRYING.



Your honor, something is amiss here!
As you are probably aware, library materials are labeled with barcodes as well as a number to determine their location on the shelf, as per the Dewey Decimal System. The books just to the left of the manga are labeled, as are the DVDs just in view on the lower shelf. Look even further behind these shelves and you’ll see that even those books are labeled! 
Ladies and gentlemen of the courtroom, I invite you to take a closer look at the volumes that are, allegedly, part of this law library! Something is missing from the spines, isn’t there?

Where are the bar codes?!
This is a blatant contradiction! The OP is lying— these volumes cannot, therefore, be a part of this library at all! I propose that they simply brought these materials in for the sake of the joke!! 


Only focusing on one aspect and not the whole of the issue, are we, Mr. Wright? Typical.

Your honor, if you bring your attention to the books just left of the manga, you’ll notice there’s a book (the second to the left) that also does not have a bar code.

If you examine the picture even closer—particularly the DVDs below—you’ll see that they bear bar codes, but not on the spines. No, they have them on the back and/or front of the DVDs. Of course, this method of labeling and organizing isn’t limited to products of the film industry alone.

Therefore, I’d like to propose that it is entirely possible that the manga books do, in fact, belong to the library!


Wh-WHAAAAT?! You’re kidding!! 
(Shoot, he’s got me there… Better think of something fast! Something about the books that sets them apart from—
…! I’ve got it!)
While that may be true, you’ve also overlooked one critical error: the titles of the books! Whether or not your hypothesis regarding the labeling system is correct, these titles aren’t alphabetized correctly! What kind of self-respecting librarian would misplace such vital books? 
Well, Edgeworth?



While it pains me to have to point out something so obvious, I suppose I’ll make an exception for you, Wright.
Clearly, one look at the titles of the books next to the manga is a tell-all of this certain library’s less-than-stellar organization skills. None of the books are in alphabetical order, I’m afraid.

They could very well be alphabetized by author and not title, but it’s a little difficult to be able to decipher that from this single picture, wouldn’t you say?
Furthermore, the manga books themselves are in numerical order, suggesting some kind of system is in place, albeit not a very good one, if the alphabetizing is off.

At the end of the day, it seems like neither of us can draw a clear conclusion from this evidence alone. Your honor, I strongly suggest a recess in which we could investigate the library itself further.

I see the issue here very clearly.
Due to the uncertain nature of this case, we’ll have to postpone this decision until more decisive evidence can be obtained. The court will now take a 15-minute recess.

(W-wait, but I’m not—)


WAIT!!!

I’ve got some decisive evidence for you, pal!

We investigated further into the photo. Zooming in, you can see a label on the DVD case to the bottom left.

Photo Close-up added to the court record!


As you can see, pal, you can vaguely see the words “Of Toledo Law Library” on the label!

And, considering possibilities of the rest of that label, “University of Toledo" was the first to come to my mind!
A quick search on the University of Toledo’s Online Law Library Database revealed that there ARE the comics pictured in it!
Miles Edgeworth Ace Attorney Investigations volumes 1-4 and Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney volumes 1-5!

And there’s more! 
The section these comics are filed under is the “Law in Popular Culture" Section, which matches up with the stickers on the rest of the books on that shelf: "Lowering the Bar: Lawyer Jokes & Legal Culture”, “Prime Time Law”, “Lawyers in Your Living Room!" and "Reel Justice: The Courtroom Goes to the Movies”!
Not only is it in the right section, it’s also a documented part of the Law Library’s database!
How’s that for decisive evidence?



Shit The Ace Attorney fandom is just as hardcore as the LOTR fandom

Did I just fucking hear them say that one of her tests was to pull 105 lbs simulating an injured soldier out of a tank hatch? This is just insanely stupid because an injured soldier is going to be dead weight and by no means weighs 105 lbs plus the weight of their gear. Hey, why don’t we just cut corners and lower the requirements to a child’s ability while we’re at it? 
The average weight of a man in the United States is 189 lbs. A soldier’s body armor weighs 30 lbs and their load out is generally around 87 to 127 lbs. Well you might say to just leave the gear behind but you can’t just do that. Try telling your squad leader you left another soldier’s shit behind because you were too weak to carry it. I’m sure they’ll totally understand. 
Doesn’t anybody remember the lies they told about Jessica Lynch being a fucking hero when she wasn’t just so they could paint her up like G.I. Jane? She didn’t even fire one round. Female recruits in the Marines can’t even do 3 pull-ups and they’re lowering the standards for what, some false sense of equality?

i don’t trust people who are super into “proper grammar” and “correct punctuation” because what lies just beyond that smug superiority is some sinister classism that gets acutely racist in a red hot minute, so for similar reasons I’m instantly wary of anyone who takes great pride in their love of “logic” and “intellect”
