...Prove Their Worth...

"Problems worthy of attack
prove their worth

A kind of running diary and rambling pieces on my struggles with assorted books, classes, and other things, as they happen. You must be pretty bored to be reading this...

Oh my fuckin' God. I have got to visit Japan some day. I just found a link to the most hilariously bizarre thing ever while reading Charlie Stross's latest update (highly recommended web log, by the way [and read any of his stories you can get your hands on - he's a fantastic scifi writer]). It's well known that there exists anime for every taste. Well, it turns out that even those whose tastes run to 'hamster sex comedies' aren't left out. Ladies and gentlemen, I point you at Oruchuban Ebichu (and that's a link to the first of several DVD collections). Here is a review. Apparently, this is a special 'housekeeping hamster', and it's somehow involved in the explicitly rendered sex lives of the humans it lives with. It gets better. The studio producing this is Gainax, and the creative mind is Anno Hideaki. Not only that, but the starring female role is voiced by Mitsuishi Kotono (you may have heard of a character of hers named 'Misato' before). Yes, ladies and gentlemen. The creative team behind that famous pinnacle of mind-bending anime, Neon Genesis Evangelion, have managed to top themselves!
