It’s amazing how much a writer can change in just a few short years – a point that Zzeroparticle and Pontifus decided to drive home with their Aniblog Readings project. The idea was that a group of willing and capable bloggers would toss their name in a hat, and each would be randomly assigned a blogger to read. The reader must choose from one of the author’s earliest posts, preferably in the first ten, and then proceed to read it in an audio or video clip. Each reader had to say exactly what was written, pronouncing spelling mistakes and everything – however, they had the option of reading it in any voice of their choosing. Then, once they had created their clips, they would send them to the blogger whose post they read, and that blogger would have to post the clips on their own blog. By some stroke of divine perfection, my frequent co-conspirator and good friend Ghostlightning was assigned to read one of my posts. He did so. Three times.
The post in question is entitled “Anime in a Day,” and, without over-explaining it, was a… review? of Futakoi Alternative. In terms of it’s place in my history, this post came in early 2007 when I first began as a quasi-episodic blogger talking entirely to myself. Chances are, if you started reading my blog before fall of last year, then you know I was pretty bad. I’m embarrassed to read anything that I wrote in 2007 or 2008 and a lot of 2009… but even if you knew I was bad, you couldn’t have known that I was this bad. Ladies and gentleman, Ghostlightning will now present to you the blogging equivalent of my naked baby pictures. Three times. (And yes, you must watch all three, as they all have their own style, hilarious videos, and easter eggs.)
In this first video, I was told that GL was trying to ‘sound like me.’ Being as he’s spoken to me on Skype and seen my videos, he certainly would know, and by god he captures the spirit of my conversation to as full an extent as his accent allows. I should just die.
I guess this was the annoying chirpy fanboy voice and is, to be honest, probably the voice that most people heard in their heads when they read this tripe. The world should just break.
And finally, almost as if in reply to the pretentious pictures of myself that I put on facebook, GL enacts the final killshot in this unbearable, painstaking monotone reading that had me gouging my eyes out and begging to die.
There you have it, folks. If I did need a reminder, then now I will surely never forget – I was the worst fucking blogger of all time at some point. And chances are, even as I move into the future, I will continually look back on my old posts with contempt, regret, and suicidal thoughts.
If you can’t get enough of these Aniblog Readings, then follow Eye Sedso for the next few days. I’ll be reading one of his old posts (though strangely enough, I actually like a lot of his old stuff better than his current stuff, but I did bloody find one I could use.) Fans of Glo the Legend won’t want to miss my brilliant British accent, so be sure to stick around~
NOTE: This post contains MAJOR SPOILERS for the Revolutionary Girl Utena movie. It is also slightly NSFW. A post in the Diary of an Anime Lived series.
End of Utena resonated with me in many ways. It’s message, it’s art, the lives of it’s characters – it did what made the series great and kept it more concentrated, poignant, and blatant, which I appreciated. It is a masterpiece, pure and simple, and I was glad that I could find a way to pay tribute to it’s art and message without sacrificing either. End of Utena will go down as one of my favorite anime, because it fills me with such a feeling that I cannot deny it’s impact. I hope that those feelings come through in this video.
I also wanted to make a special note of it’s ending. Was that the most awesome ending of an anime or what!? Hot, naked lesbians making out while laying on the back of a raging motorcycle? What more could I possibly ask for?
Post BGM – Whatever’s playing on Fuzakenna TV of course!
EDIT: Holy shit, just overnight, Mogulus changed their name to Livestream O_o
Several days ago, I was introduced to the video channel creating service Mogulus through The Gaming Dungeon‘s Mogulus-powered TV channel. After a few days of listening, I had quickly heard all of the songs on there too damn many times, so I went and found out how to make my own channel. And did. What I didn’t expect was how I could find out that I could use this channel to bring a whole new style of blogging to the anime sphere – a combination of interactive TV and podcasting that is sure to yield amazing results.
This was originally meant to be a part of a post on Oi, Hayaku called ‘your super-awesome shounen special attack’, but for various reasons the post never happened. However, this video is a thousand times too awesome not to post. The Ultimate Move! SPACE TIME CRUSHER!!!!
(watch it in HD!)
Did you cum twice?
Oh man I lol’d. Being a fan of either woul dmake this rock, but being a fan of both makes it gold.
