    Know that I am completely open-minded and accepting about homosexuality when I say this, but it is the gayest show in existence. It's like the show is in the closet about it, which makes it really, really funny.

    That's lame. You're no longer "gangsta." Live with that, punk!

    Yes, the thing is, cancer is in a sense part of the human body, just cells gone out of control and become immortal, in a sense. Consuming everything else in their path and eventually breaking down the other bodily functions. From what I've heard from good sources, it's possible that the best we can hope for it a more effective treatment. The ones we have now are brutal and horrible to go through for the most part, so a revolution even just in treatment would still make life for millions across the globe radically better. Just like with AIDS now that I think about it. There's still no cure, but now, instead of being a death sentence, most people can live semi-normal life (both in length and enjoyment) as long as they go through (albeit expensive) treatments. That's surely progress.

    *Throws various utensils, boxes and books at papermario* Pervert! Creep! You heard nothing!!

    Awesome, that's high praise indeed. I gave the series an 8, even if I find this to be merely "as good" as the series, it'll still be great. If it's even better, that would be just an absolute treat.

    Y-you're blogging? About *my* Yuno? Well, I guess she can defend herself, no need for me to fly into a fit of rage. BUT I WILL ANYWAY. *eats his keyboard*

    Ah yes, I was just hunting for some subs and saw Working. I'm heading off to my mother's for the evening, but I'll be sure to watch that when I come back.

    That's one crazy series. So very, very crazy.

    Consider your love of rap duly sabotaged.

    Nothing much to do about that except wait for a cure, if a cure for cancer is even feasible.

    Hmmmph. Stupid Yuno. I don't l-like her or anything, so don't get the wrong idea. Got it?!

    Oh, cool. I expected them to be pretty good, but it's great to have some confirmation, I'll make sure to put them on my mental to-watch list.

    I'll get some sleep now, by the way. Enjoy the rest of the movie, man.

    I authorize it. By the power of Grayskull, let it be!

    Yes, I'm sure I just shattered your high regard for the genre.

    He's a funny guy. True to the topic, he died much too early, from cancer in his mere early 30s.

    Even though every death except those of the congressman and bodyguard (who were inspecting the premises, and did not live there) was by suicide, I guess when you see hundreds of people around you plan to kill themselves, you'd be wise to run, they're obviously crazy enough to do anything.

    I'm not really a masochist. I think. Besides, as we all know, yandere girls only kill and hurt those close to their sweethearts; never the guy himself. Therefore, I wouldn't get much pleasure out of it even if I was a masochist. Which I'm totally not. I guess there's just something romantic about loving someone no matter how messed up they are. Even that might be putting too much thought into why I actually like her, though. The truth is, I just find her compelling for some inexplicable reason.

    Yes. I think they're making sure nothing bad happens to the children. Those brave souls are donating so much of their time for the sake of the next generation.

    You can't spell "rape" without it either.

    It's mostly about how extraordinary people with a good message tend to get killed (Lennon, Gandhi, JFK, Jesus etc) while mediocre hacks live long and prosper. He laments it in a humorously morbid fashion.

    Damn. That is insane. Sounds like there wouldn't even be room in there for that much. As for Jonestown, that was actually a small settlement. A "town" of sorts, where only cult-members lived. Just about everyone committed suicide, a few handfuls escaped into the surrounding forests. So that's why there were so many children who took part, literally everyone was instructed to do it, and a lot of people lived on the settlement as families.

    Here's what I think tips the scales in Idolmaster's favor. A normal episode of Idolmaster is about on par with a normal episode of Working. Working is generally very consistent, you can expect good laughs and awesome character moments episode. However, an Idolmaster episode like the one we had this week sort of blows Working out of the water. That's how I feel about it, anyhow. I have a very strange attraction to Yuno. It scares me almost as much as she does. But hey, I liked [insert spoiler yandere] and [insert spoiler yandere] too, so maybe there's a pattern here.

    I teach it to middle aged men in trench-coats. Don't know what they're going to use it for, but I'm sure it's wholesome and conducive to a prosperous society.

    Hahaha, there's something magical and wonderful about rap, huh. Makes everything so much better.

    Bill Hicks (controversial, deceased stand-up comic) has a great routine about that exact topic. It's wonderful.

    We don't have kool-aid here, but I'm sure there's plenty of soda-like drinks that are just as harmful, or at least come pretty close. The Jonestown incident is one of the most insane things I've ever heard. 900 people committing ritual suicide in the middle of the USA. How do you get to that mindset? The mindset where you'll literally swallow deadly poison, and feed it to your children, just cuz some guy says?

    I think I'm largely in agreement. When push comes to shove, I'll likely pick Idolmaster over Working too. Just by a smidgen, but still. I think I saw you mention the scene where Yuno is at the mail-slot in the Mirai Nikki thread.... that scene caught me by surprise and genuinely scared me. I still love her, though. A little crazy won't deter me.

    What can I say? I've always had a natural knack for stalking.

    Okay, that was pretty bad. But since I have no connection to the source material, there's no feeling of being defiled. You know what it reminds me of? Vanilla Ice. "Go ninja, go ninja, go!" That song, whatever it's called, and I can't believe I'm making that kind of a reference....

    Very wise decision-making on the part of JFK is supposedly what saved the day there, he apparently went against most of his advisers and chose what in retrospect turned out to be the right decision. And he got shot for it not too much later. Great world.

    It is nothing short of horrifying, the worst modern-day cult incident and one of the greatest tragedies in American history, outside of war. Over 900 people committed suicide (these were all sorts of people from every range group, including many children) on the orders of their cult leader, after they had shot and killed a congressman and his bodyguard. They all died from cyanide poisoning, supposedly from laced kool-aid. (Hence the expression, "Don't drink the kool-aid." It's almost unbelievable when you hear it, but they all believed they were going to go directly to the next life, and that it was for the best. Something to do with spaceships and aliens if I recall correctly. One of the most notorious cults ever.

    Working is damn, damn good too. I look forward to both, I'm not actually sure which I prefer. Working is more straight comedy with some adorableness thrown in, while Idolmaster can be a bit more heavy, more like a comedy/drama. Both are excellent in their own right, and I think it only depends what kind of mood I'm in when it comes to which one I most look forward to. Mirai Nikki is great too, I love it, but for some reason I don't anticipate it as much as I do the two others; I always end up enjoying it a lot though.

    Educated guess. Your personality gave me the impression that you had not yet been afflicted by chicken pox. Oh yes, I can tell!

    Hmm. Now I'm curious. Will it chip away at me until I finally decide to listen? Yes, yes it will.

    Yes, quite. It's amazing that no nukes were dropped during the Cold War, the Cuba Missile Crisis had us literally at the threshold of all-out nuclear war. It boggles the mind to think about that.

    Tasteless joke referencing Jonestown. Speaking of scary stories, that's one of the things I can hardly believe even happened.

    We better, now that I got my hopes up. Well, we still got five episodes left, I'm getting ahead of myself.

    That's why I'm poxing you. I knew you'd be vulnerable!

    Pirate rap, huh! Well, I showed you that vampire rap, and I can't get it out of my head or stop listening to it. (Yes, really.) I've also heard the Lazytown pirate-song. That's.... almost pirate rap? It's pirate-related and bad, anyway. Sooo bad.

    I don't want to be a doomsayer, it's just a scary possibility. I think that if that advanced weaponry ever got readily available, society would have to radically change and be reformed with immense focus on security, and almost no liberty. Which would be bad enough in itself. Well, enough "the sky is falling"-ism.

    You're right. It's time to get serious and just drink the cyanide cool-aid.

    Ah, that's true. I didn't think about that, for some reason. That often happens with anime these days, and with idolmaster's popularity, it seems highly probable. Yay!

    A pox upon you!

    It had a decent amount of good shows, but for every one good show, there was literally four or five mediocre or downright horrible shows. When we first got it, it was the first time in my life we had a channel that showed children's programming all day, so I ended up watching just about every show I could whenever I was allowed for as long as I was allowed to sit plastered in front of the television. Of course, my obsession passed when we had had the channel for a while, but by then I was hooked on a lot of it. I know nothing about 4kids, except that people hate their dub of One Piece. Having never had the channel, and never watched the show, original or dubbed, I don't have much of an opinion on it. But I'd wager it sucks.

    It is in fact very scary how fast technology progresses in comparison to social values. Today people are blowing themselves up with bombs, imagine if an individual could get access to nuclear weaponry. Just a tiny one could blow up a small city, and you know there are people crazy and hate-filled enough to do that, they demonstrate it every day. That's just one of the doomsday scenarios, of course. Nanotechnology-based microbes that target people with specific genetics (based on race, for instance) could be another. We have to grow up as a species; and quick.

    That's just.... very silly and stupid. If I saw that I think my jaw would drop and I'd turn on Linkin Park and get the razor blades sharp and nice for a session of cutting.

    That is the concern. I'd rather have nothing, and leave with a sense that this was a wonderful series, than for it to continue and spiral into mediocrity, or God forbid; jump the shark completely.
