Rants & Raves
At some point, probably earlier this year, someone drove down a boat ramp... truck first. Of course in this day and age someone was near by with a camera and snapped a quick shot. You might find one swing your way complete with a little humorous, probably fabricated, story. One example,
|So here it is.
I just bought a new boat and decided to take 'er for the maiden voyage this past weekend. This is my first boat and I wasn't quite sure of the exact Standard Operating Procedures for launching it off a ramp, but I figured it couldn’t be too hard. I consulted my local boat dealer for advice, but they just said "don't let the trailer get too deep when you are trying to launch the boat". Well, I don’t know what they meant by that as I could barely get the trailer in the water at all! Anyhow, here's a picture. See for yourself. What am I doing wrong?

It's currently in the process of being passed around the 'net through websites, and everyone's arch nemesis, the chain email. As with all chain letters each version is just slightly different than the next. Unfortunately this example has been hijacked by someone with an obvious political leaning...
This is a first in a series of articles on how I would cast the English dubs for certain titles that either have not been licensed for North America or have dubs I would like to see recast. Enjoy!
Now, in my "favorite video games" article some time ago, I mentioned that, personally, I'm not much of a gamer. And by that, I mean I'm not very good at them. I enjoy video games. They've been a large part of my life. However, I'm just not very skilled.
So, perhaps it's with a little envy, or perhaps just a boat load of frustration, when I tell you, the folks who are good at them are mostly a pack of arrogant cum stains who I wish would die in a horrible fire that kills their parents and pets as well.
So, the cast for Funimation's Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood dub has been revealed. Or, at least, some of it. Here's my commentary on it:
Vic Mignogna as Edward Elric
Comment: I'm not surprised, but I'm not happy. Vic will continue to gain popularity based on a mediocre effort that pales in comparison to the Japanese voice. Well, I can at least hope he's better this time around, because last time it he was just lousy.
Maxey Whitehead as Alphonse Elric
Oh, lordy, lordy. Won't anyone please save the children from our evil, socialist dictator President and his speech on the importance of education?!
This is the new mental illness of the right, that Obama is going to hypnotize school children into being some sort of Lenin-worshipping communist puppets of the state. How? Why, by talking to them via TV broadcast about... here we go... the importance of staying in school!
Dun dun dunnnnn!
