Love him or not, one can’t deny his contribution

R.I.P. Michael Jackson. I haven’t been a fan for years but I recognize that we’ve lost a great talent who performed deeply personal lyrics and brought attention to a part of the world (Africa) that most Americans pay little attention to.

Stolen One Piece, what’s the point?

So I know this happened  a few weeks ago and I meant to write about it but RL got in the way.

I am still scratching the head about the news that someone hacked into Funimation and stole an ep of One Piece and posted it one day before it was set to be released. Apparently Funimation had come to agreement with Toei to allow Funi to post one hour after the Japanese release.

Now I don’t necessarily feel that you should never watch fansubbed anime. There are some real gems out there that for whatever reason will never see the light of the day in the U.S. but seriously people this is “One Piece”, you know that it will be subbed and/or dubbed.

Also, the argument that many anime fans have given for years is that anime was taking too long to reach the U.S. from it’s Japanese release. Funi was releasing the ep one hour after it’s Japanese release.

So then again what was the point of stealing and posting, besides screwing it up for the rest of us?

LeVar Burton is hotter than your *bleep* *bleep*

Profanity ahead! I was looking around twitter and LeVar Burton had a link to this so I checked it out. Apparently it was made by some fans of his….either that or someone was very bored.

There are just no words to describe this, LOL.

Profanity just ahead…

I immediately had to run over and post this. I don’t know how long it’s been there but Hulu.com has 4 dubbed episodes of this amazing anime. This will have to tide me over until Funimation starts selling the DVDs.

Se7en’s album to drop 7/7

Not much of a post just dropping by to say in case you didn’t catch it—Se7en recently had a press conference in LA to announce his upcoming album. Unfortunately, I haven’t heard anything about it other than a mention I found in someone else’s blog (which I unfortunately don’t remember whose). Today I had the chance to look on YT for any info unfortunately the press conference clips are hard to hear but I did find a clip of a preview of his new song ‘Them Girls’. Sounds good so far! Check it out below.

LYRICS:
Yeah, it’s another Darkchild Production
And my homie Se7en, let’s go

I like them girls that’s hard to get
I like them girls, shot calling a whip
I like them girls (girls), I like them girls (girls)
I like them girls, that’ll love to trip
Trying to spend 24 at Se7en’s crib
Girls, girls, girls, girls
Girls I do adore

Let me holla at ya girl
Every time I turn around
The girls be looking at me
I see a couple of ’em in the crowd
And I can tell that they wanna be
Be the one that’ll make me settle down
Take my number out of the game
Until I find that, I’ma fall back
I’ll tell you what I’m looking for

Tryna make you my accessory (yeah)
All girls are necessary (yeah)
Like Will I’m Legend, feel me
You can Google me, baby
Been around the world, Asia to Philly (oh yeah)
Across the border they all look good to me
I need a few more, so call the G4
Tell them that we only got room for seven more

I like them girls that’s hard to get
I like them girls, shot calling the whip
I like them girls (girls), I like them girls (girls)
I like them girls, that’ll love to trip
Trying to spend 24 at Se7en’s crib
Girls, girls, girls, girls
Girls I do adore…

This is what YouTube should be about!

This has nothing whatever to do with drama or manga except that I stumbled upon this while looking at Roy Adeed Hang Ruck (somebody pleeeaaase do an English sub!). There are some vids up about pangea day which I have never heard of but its basically the idea of promoting a day of unity on May 10, 2008 and they have all these short clips of one nation singing another nation’s national anthem. It’s wonderful and very touching. I was particularly touched by Kenya singing to India. They are each about 1 minute long.
