Saturday Morning Update #38


This week I went to a "Yell Like Goku" event. It started like many fake Facebook events as a joke that evolved to having hundreds of confirmed attendees. With time to kill I got there a bit early and started to watch the usual crowd (i.e. people you see at an anime con) as people began asking a common question: is this really going to happen? Low and behold the event organizer (just some random guy who thought this would be funny) showed up and started talking with everyone. He then made an empowering speech and, as promised, everyone yelled like Goku for about two minutes. And that was it. People started leaving right away and as I headed home I saw a few stragglers on their way to the already over event wearing Dragon Ball inspired t-shirts, some even in full cosplay. While it didn't bring forth the hundreds who confirmed their attendance on Facebook, there was a decent sized crowd of Dragon Ball fans all there with the same goal in mind: have fun for five minutes. I had to leave relativity soon after the yelling ceased, but I am sure others hung around for a bit. It didn't change the world or cause any problem, it was just a bunch of geeks gathering to have fun. As events go, I'd say it was a success.

What did you do this week? What are you up to this coming week? NYCC is getting close! I'm too excited!

REVIEW: ThinkGeek Messenger Bag of Holding


I’ve gotten a lot of use, and compliments, out of my ThinkGeek inspired backpack from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. However, I’ve always been the kind of guy to carry just a few essentials in an easily accessible bag. Luckily, ThinkGeek sent me another bag to review that is way more my style: the Messenger Bag of Holding.

Saturday Morning Update #37


At the beginning of September set out to blog every day in the month. As of yesterday, that's not happening. I had the idea back in August but decided to wait until September because it was shorter and I'd have five Saturday Morning Updates for easy posts. September also leads in to New York Comic Con, which means money has been tight. Not to mention some private stuff going on at my day job.I've had less money to buy things to review and less motivated to go out and do fun things, so I've had less things to blog about. The stuff I prepped back in August have been big hits, and the stuff I threw together at night when nothing had gone up yet proved to be a prime example of quantity over quality. I spent what little free time I had writing about stuff I didn't really care about. I might honestly go back and delete some of this month's posts all together. I would rather crack out one or two high quality posts than try to rush something every single day. This was supposed to be a fun experiment, but halfway through the test tubes exploded and nature bit back in a big way.

Let me know in the comments how your week went. I hope it was better than mine.

FIRST IMPRESSIONS: The Tick


I didn’t really know what to make of the new Amazon Prime exclusive series The Tick. I have vague memories of the cartoon that aired on Fox Kids and didn’t even know there was a live action series until this new one was announced. So I dove into the first two episodes to see what was up. Here are my first impressions.

Do Digimon Have Gender?


I’ve seen this question come up a lot over the past few years. It’s so strange that it’s even worth debating, especially when there are so many other aspects of Digimon that could actually fuel an interesting conversation. Everyone wants to know if Digimon have gender, which I guess is a fair question. Since I’ve stumbled across people asking online, and multiple people have actually come to me for answers, I thought I’d finally break it down and see if we can’t clear this one up. Do Digimon have gender?
