I might need to update my software, or they face regional limitations, cause I found no evidence of either.

Spiffy! The english dub of Bubblegum Crisis on Tubi. It's gotten so hard to find these oldies on modern streaming services.

Or do Japan's cultural values vary depending on exactly who you're trying to shut down?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:33 PM)

Could it be that, perhaps, these different cultural values might lead to a different approach seeming appropriate?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Hm. Back when we were arguing about the Legends comic, I seem to recall being repeatedly told that Japan had different cultural values than the US (and therefore anyone who had a problem with anything at all was wrong to voice that opinion ever).

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:23 AM)

Plus, as much as I hate to admit it, every single anime character is built to suit the audience's tastes so they buy more merch/do other things that allow $$$ to flow in the production committees direction, so the authenticity is certainly not for representation's sake.

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Both those anime air at midnight and are aimed at a very specific audience in a whole other media landscape. Major projects have press releases about almost everything, and there are groups just waiting to pat anybody on the back for doing what they want (GLAAD, HRC, etc)

@  B-Fox : (19 February 2020 - 03:16 AM)

It's funny that a friggin' anime about zombie idols and an anime about a school of anthropomorphic animals can have really positive trans characters WITHOUT a press release about their inclusion in the series prior to the episodes airing or having the creators announcing it on social media and patting themselves on the back for doing a thing.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 06:57 PM)

Vegans are better than kids if you don't talk to them. They'll keep the lawn trimmed anyway.

Hook up your sprinkler system to a canister of healthy organic carrot-juice. The kids won't be able to get off your lawn fast enough.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 February 2020 - 05:21 PM)

Japan seems to have a tradition of murder things where cellphones facilitate the killing instead. Like King's Game and Doubt.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 05:17 PM)

Or there's just conveniently no reception, or all of their phones are dead at the same time. Or they're just stupid and forget about them.

@  Patch : (16 February 2020 - 04:41 PM)

Now the slasher villain has to go and knock over the nearest cell tower before butchering horny teenagers.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 03:54 PM)

Think of all the horror and mystery movies that involve the bad guys cutting the phone line. Now think about how many people don't even have a land line to cut anymore.

@  Telly : (16 February 2020 - 03:47 PM)

its like that scene in commando. the bad guy has to get to a phone to call the big bad to tell him arnold isnt on the plane. that wouldnt happen today

While browsing Youtube vids I read these comments: 'The X Files is such an underrated show' and another 'Brent Spiner is a underrated actor' I want to punch something.

There's nothing stopping you from having those. Just pay attention to portion sizes. Self control is the, hands down, hardest part of getting healthy.

Got up and ran 2 miles outside since it was warm enough. Haven’t ran outside in awhile and it showed. Feb 1st also starts a biggest loser contest. I’m around 235 right now. Hopefully with motivation to win that and doing the 100 mile challenge in Feb I’ll drop a lot of pounds with the shock my body is about to get.

I was running today, and I told myself something I usually tell myself when I’m running and somebody passes me: don’t worry about them. Run your race.

But then I also realized those that were passing me were what appeared to be young kids in their 20’s while I’ll be 40 in May. They better be passing me up!

Alpine by Giant. It has 4.5” wide tires. I remember hitting a patch of snow on my old bike, and it was like quick sand, but this thing is a tank.

Snow never really worried me, it was the ice. I hugged up my shoulder beautifully one year by hitting a patch of the black while riding. My bike rotated 90 degrees and dropped my entire weight on my right shoulder. It's still not right, I'm as strong as I used to be, but range of motion suffered and the damn thing wants to pop out of the joint if I move too quick.

Taji 100: 100 - 3.5 = 96.5 more miles to go this month!

 

Got a workout in yesterday.  You can see on my first run where I had to step off the treadmill for a minute.  Was going a little faster than I should have.  Not sure if I am just going to walk my 3.5 miles tonight or get on the elliptical.  Might not do weights everyday, but going to try and do core everyday after getting my miles in.  I saw myself in the mirror this morning when I was getting ready and saw some good changes.  Did a side by side photo from September when I was down in Florida on the beach vs now and WOW!  Maybe Ill post a after picture when this deployment is done or the Biggest Loser contest at the end of March.  

 

Speaking of the BL contest, I went to get my weight recorded yesterday and was trying to save a trip for the bathroom until after I was weighed.  Well the guy on night shift was doing inventory so I went to the bathroom, did my run, then got weighed in.  As most of us know, running can work as a laxative.  So I weighed myself after I went, I lost a whole pound!  lol.  Weight at weigh in (with shoes and clothes) 240.6

I did 50 sit ups that are not on the list, forgot to add them.  Probably going to walk my 3.5 tonight plus weights after the Super Bowl is done. 

 

Also, product plug.  Treign is a small business from my hometown.  The owner was a basketball coach at a local high school and had a job in sales before he went on start his dream of owning a fitness clothing company.  The design is taken from ancient gladiators and the style of wrap they would use on their hands.  The clothes are super comfortable.  www.gotreign.com
