Sunday, December 31, 2000 — New Year’s Eve

Just watched the first DVD of the El Hazard OAV, and I’m impressed. It’s certainly at a Tenchi level of enjoyment (both series were made by the same people), without re-using any characters. (OK, Shayla-Shayla and Ryoko have their similarities, but so do many characters. Underneath the surface, these two are very different people.) I also grabbed some video footage for what will probably be my next anime music […]

Ha! I am so COOL! I’ve been so pumped by the fantastic anime music videos at Aluminum Studios that I decided to try my hand at making one. I took the theme song to The Real Adventures of Johnny Quest and set it to clips from Gundam Wing. I’ve put it on its own page, and I have to admit I think it came out extremely well. It was so amazingly easy to make; it took […]

During lunch I went over to Suncoast and bought four anime DVDs: Princess Mononoke, the second volume of Trigun, and two DVDs as gifts for Saalon. Heck, it’s payday, and I can afford it. Though I certainly have lots of other anime that I should finish watching before moving on, but oh well. Unfortunately, I then found out that Saalon bought me a Princess Mononoke DVD for Christmas, which is en-route. […]

I watched the final two half-hour episodes of Key: The Metal Idol two days ago, and the first half of the first “movie” yesterday evening. The final episodes of Key blew me away. I consider it to be among the best climaxes (well, anti-climaxes; Key‘s story isn’t over yet) that I’ve ever seen presented in […]

In the wee small hours of the morning before falling into bed last night, I added a page to my Homepage’s library, describing the anime titles that I own, and which ones I’d like to buy in future. I figure this will be a good way for me to keep track of what I have […]

Thanks to, I came across, a site where you can paste in a piece of spam, and their software will find out whom you should e-mail to report the spam, and will e-mail them for you (prior to your approval of the addresses they come up with) with a complete report on the spam. I’ve reported a handful of spam today, and plan to do it as much as possible from now on. You can also […]

The AWANA meeting last night went well. My Dad came along, and there were a lot of good suggestions all around. It was held at the new building, which formerly belonged to the National Wildlife Foundation (is anyone else vaguely annoyed at how much wolves are used as ecological poster children?), and boy is it huge. Meanwhile, I see there is now a, the official homepage of the show and the upcoming movie. […]

Wow. I recognize every category listed on the user profile page at SourceForge. And most of them are pretty geeky. That’s very cool, actually (I love their example for strongest leadership skills). I’ve posted a couple of reviews to Points of View, of the second Samurai X: Rurouni Kenshin DVD, and of Photon. That last pretty much sums up my feelings on Photon, as alluded to in an earlier update. Tonight I have a planning meeting to attend for McLean Bible […]

Just got home from a 10.5-hour workday. I should start getting used to this, I think. This morning I ordered Dual volume 2, Evangelion volume 2, Wings of Honneamise, all on DVD, from Right Stuf Anime. Should be fun; Wings of Honneamise looks terrific, and I know I’ll enjoy the other two. Let’s see, what else. Lots of interesting stuff has been posted recently on rec.arts.sf.composition, particularly regarding […]

Had a very nice morning at The Falls Church (gotta love a church whose website contains multi-year archives of past sermons). Reverend Yates gave a sermon on the authority of Scripture, and how important it is to spend time in it to strengthen one’s personal beliefs. Then, in a class on classic spiritual literature, we talked about Cardinal John Henry Newman, an Anglican in the 1800’s who converted to Catholicism after a lot of intense study. While […]
