Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo, or The Pet Girl of Sakurasou. This is one of those shows that I watched completely blind. Someone told me to check it out, I saw it had a surprisingly high MAL score, was intrigued, and summarily watched it not knowing anything else about it. The first thing to get out of the way about Sakurasou is that, right off the bat, it is a very much a light novel show....View more »
HBO has some of the greatest shows on television—Game of Thrones, Insecure, Sharp Objects, Westworld.... the list is long. But for people living in Europe, getting legal access to HBO programming is extremely difficult, if not impossible.
Until now that is. Harry Guinness over at How-To Geek has outlined a way for people outside the US to access HBO Now online. It’s not a very elegant...View more »
After setting the world on fire by declaring that ACTUALLY, she simply couldn’t bring herself to vote for progressive upstart Cynthia Nixon over New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo in the primary, Amy Schumer posted Thursday afternoon that she voted for Nixon after all. It worked, folks!!!!
“We voted. And we voted for @cynthiaenixon couldn’t help it,” the comedian posted, presumably implying that both...View more »
In 1847, German biologist Carl Bergmann posited that cold climates give rise to bigger bodies, and that animals who live in warm places typically are smaller. It made sense, since bigger bodies preserve heat more efficiently than smaller ones.
One question remained unanswered. What about birds who endure both hot and cold? As it turns out, it’s all about the heat, a fact made clear by climate...View more »
Fender arrived, it was dirty and there was some rust (?) stains on the clear coat, and a few light scratches. It’s got one big scratch down to metal I am spot repairing (it’s only halfway done), for everything else, a bit of polish/light cutting compound, lots of elbow grease, and about twenty coats of two different types of waxes and I’ve got a literal mirror finish.

Frank Bennedetto was a good man who risked it all for his friends... well, at least according to his self-professed ‘col-o-nel’, Homestar Runner. To the untrained observer, he seemed a bit more like... well, a popcorn machine. Sadly, he was lost in the Battle of Strong Badia, a failed invasion attempt thwarted by the local population expressing disinterest in favor of a game of Badminton and...View more »

Why doesn’t Cherie Lunghi get more roles? Well, looking at her Wikipedia page I see she’s had quite a few but I’ve only seen or heard her in three leading roles—Excalibur, the Doctor Who audio play The Emerald Tiger, and this morning I saw her in the 1984 BBC production of Much Ado About Nothing in which she is my favourite Beatrice.
Much Ado About Nothing is one of Shakespeare’s great...View more »
In their efforts to inform the public that they were doing everything possible to manage the spontaneous combustion of several homes, the Massachusetts State Police inadvertently let a few organizations fighting to end police brutality, racism and the reign of Donald Trump, know that they are being watched.

WEST LIVINGSTON, Texas—When most of the 242 death row inmates living at the Allan B. Polunsky prison look out their tiny, barred windows, they see razor wire, brick buildings, and death.
But Robert Pruett, who's scheduled to be executed in 146 days, has a different...View more »

I received this little gem in my latest box from Japan - the 1/64 Toyota 86 GT by the new manufacturer Oversteer. It comes in a little plexiglass box, mounted on a plinth and fixed with one small screw:
All of that is easily removed so we can get to the model - and it's a winner for me. The proportions of the real car are well ceptured
A pleasing level of detail all around:
Sizewise, it's a...View more »
