We started the show off with a bit of talk about Rita. We expressed concerns over how the storm would affect even us in PA, and a plea for everyone in the area of the hurricane to be safe. Luckily, the the only fan I think the show has in the area, Myra from Huston on the Batsu boards, is safe and well.
Later on in the show, we discussed Advent Children, joined by guest Craig Carestia, who had a bit of a problem d/ling the film because of assholes on Limewire who rename French Porn into highly downloadble items. I did, however, see the movie, and I was honest... I was a bit disappointed. I was really hoping there would be a good solid story that would further the legend that is Final Fantasy VII. However, what we got was a non-stop action fest with only slightly more story than Arnold Schwarzenegger's Commando. I will hand it to Nomura though, the action was pretty kick ass and stylish, but it just wasn't what I wanted in this film. But hey, this is my personal opinion. If you think I'm full of shit, proclaim it in the blogger and tell us why!
We did our first Stupid People segment this week and discussed a theif at Otakon who was crying that he got banned for 3 years. I have no sympathy for theives, so it felt only appropriate to have this be our opener to this re-invented skit. Fan reaction was pretty hostile towards the theif, and a few comments were read on air. This will be a feature for future stupid people segments, so feel free to put in your two cents!
We finally did our Otakon 2005 coverage. Basically, despite the appearence of a major musical guest, the convention still was alot of fun! You can tell the convention took strides to make up for it by adding more panels and doubling the size of the dealer's and game rooms! One thing I didn't mention which rather pissed me off was that they were very strict on signs this year. You couldn't be creative at all, only "Hug Me" signs. I saw convention officails harass people with seemingly innocent signs that they were not allowed to have them, which I thought was pretty fucking rediculous. I even tried the sign thing for the first time with a message that concerned vampires and necking people, but within 2 minutes of me entering the convention with it, I was told by officials to get rid of it. No fun. Other than that though, Otakon oh five was a huge blast!
Lastly, we officially resurrected the Blitz Round from Bad Transitions and re-invented it a bit too. Now, instead of us taking randomly bad songs and picking them apart, we have changed it into a big "Fuck You" to MTV culture by taking popular songs from popular genres, and tearing them, the artist, and their fans a new asshole. For our first, we decided to ridicule the second most annoying group of people on the planet, Emo kids, and took on one of their flagship bands, Bright Eyes. For further details about this, Malice Mizer Inc has kindly posted the entire show on bittorrent! A segment like this cannot be exlained, only heard. I'll post the link later on tonight!

Well, we cried like Emo kids that no one is posting comments anymore. So are you guys gonna make us happy, or are we gonna have to slit our wrists out of attention, hold 'em up to you and say "My blood is a red as the pain you bring to my soul"?
