Summer Anime

Before the season started "Highschool of the Dead" was number one on my list, but now that most of this seasons shows are around episode seven it really isn't holding up that well.

I love the Manga and the Anime does look fantastic (especially the blend of traditional and CG art), but "Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakamatachi" currently has been the most enjoyable with "Sekirei ~Pure Engagement~" coming in right behind it.

I'm still watching and enjoying it, but not as much as I thought I would, guess the hype killed it for me.

Anyway, here's the list of this seasons anime I'm currently watching.

1. Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakamatachi
2. Sekirei ~Pure Engagement~
3. Seikimatsu Occult Gakuin
4. Densetsu no Yuusha no Densetsu
5. Highschool of the Dead

  • "With the official Rails 3 release on the horizon, all of the edge features we have been hearing about for over a year are about to become the new standard, and it has definitely been worth the wait. One of the primary goals of the "big refactor" has been to modularize Rails to allow other frameworks to easily extend or entirely replace any of the previously "critical" components (ActiveRecord, ActionMailer, etc). At the centre of all this, is the new Railtie logic, which pieces all of these modules together."

The Goonies (25th Anniversary Edition) - BlueRay

Just added this to my Amazon Wishlist, this is one of my favorite movies from when I was growing up. Remember that my Birthday is coming up...

From Amazon.com:

You may be surprised to discover that the director of the Lethal Weapon movies and scary horror flick The Omen, Richard Donner, also produced and directed this classic children's adventure (which, by the way, was written by Donner's screen-wizard friend Steven Spielberg). Then again you may not. The Goonies, like Donner's other movies, is the same story of good versus evil. It has its share of bad guys (the Fratelli brothers and their villainous mother), reluctant-hero good guys (the Walsh bothers and their gang of friends), and lots of corny one-liners. Like in an old-fashioned Hardy Boys or Nancy Drew plot, the Goonies need to solve a problem: a corrupt corporate developer has bought out their neighborhood and plans to flatten all their homes. Luckily, the beloved gang stumbles on a treasure map. In the hopes of finding the treasure to buy back their houses, the Goonies embark on their quest through underground passages, aboard pirate ships, and behind waterfalls. This swashbuckling and rollicking ride was also a great breeding ground for a couple of child actors who went on to enjoy numerous successes in adulthood: Sean Astin (Rudy, Encino Man) and Martha Plimpton (Pecker, 200 Cigarettes). --Samantha Allen Storey

Heroine T-Shirt: Mary Shelley

Heroine \her-ə-wən\: a woman admired and emulated for her achievements and qualities

ThinkGeek.com has a new T-Shirt under their Heroine series. I had mentioned before the Marie Curie and Ada Lovelace T-Shirts, and this time around we have Mary Shelley.
Invention, it must be humbly admitted, does not consist in creating out of void, but out of chaos; the materials must, in the first place, be afforded; it can give form to dark, shapeless substances but cannot bring into being the substance itself.... Invention consists in the capacity of seizing on the capabilities of a subject and in the power of moulding and fashioning ideas suggested by it. - Mary Shelley

Mary Shelley (30 August 1797 – 1 February 1851) was a British writer best known for Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus.

You should go over to Wikipedia for more information on Mary Shelley, Marie Curie, and Ada Lovelace.
