Trigun: Badlands Rumble~

Alright, I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one late on this one, but there’s a Trigun movie coming out this summer? How did I JUST now hear about this? The movie’s called Trigun: Badlands Rumble, and as you can tell from the trailer above, it’s animated and not live action (thankfully). It’s releasing in theaters soon, but only to certain cities who demand it in their area~

LOTR/WTF Mashup: Saruman Sings Trololol~

This is a video of Saruman singing the TROLOLO song (which will now be sung in my cubicle for the rest of the day) from atop Orthanc while an audience of do-gooders watch from below. They...aren't very impressed. Me, yes, but I'm tone-deaf. Also, colorblind. I think I'm gray! NOT gay, although I do appreciate a handsome man when I see one, lol~

Local news struggles to comprehend Mikunopolis~


So! Mikunopolis happened, and it was awesome. Besides being awesome, it happened in America, where Miku isn't as big...yet. Therefore, it was only natural that local news outlets pick it up, to fill in their mandatory "human interest" block. Or in this case, Vocaloid interest~

Such was the case with KTLA, which performed a decent enough job of highlighting this strange Japanese cultural curio. Like most mainstream news coverage it still suffers from some of the misconceptions about why Vocaloids are a thing, but Miku's label as a "virtual diva" is as good a shorthand as any. At least they didn't make any jokes about robot overlords or somesuch~
