(Reposting) My Angel's Egg AMV

Body: 

Since OR won't let me embed veoh videos: http://www.veoh.com/videos/v1585001SPSJx5t2

So the story behind this is probably better left put in the Rants & Raves section, but suffice it to say I generally HATE anime music videos. So one Christmas in 2005, I decided to sit down and create my own in a three to four day period.

It's nowhere near a masterpiece, but I did submit it to MIddle Tennessee Anime Convention just because...well I had an AMV to submit to my local con...so. And it won Best Drama. They usually say your first AMV is terrible, and I suppose this one could've been better, but the most important thing is that I tried to avoid all those cliches I have grown to abhor.

Site Updates

Body: 

I've added extra modules, most noticeably the Captcha module, to handle the influx of spam following my absence.

Also, I just realized that this theme doesn't look so great in IE. If anyone has any suggestions for a new theme please let me know!

Macross Frontier - Breathing new life to the universe

Body: 

Four weeks ago began the regular airing of the newest title to bear the Macross, Macross Frontier. Set in the same universe, sometime after the events of Macross Seven. Frontier follows a fleet of colonists traveling through space (one of many exploring outward from Earth and Eden), passing [apparently] too close to the galactic core. Here they encounter a new race of enemies, the Vajra, where little knowledge of them exists.

The series focuses on the life of three main characters, Saotome Alto (average male lead), Ranka Lee (petite female lead who is 1/4th Zentradi) and Sheryl Nome (sexy figured female lead).

Jott for BlackBerry: Quick Review

Body: 

Recently Jott, best known for their general voice-to-text translation services expanded further into the mobile market with Jott for BlackBerry.

The premise is pretty simple, after signing up and installing the application to your BlackBerry you can dictate email replies straight from your mailbox. Unfortunately those of you who haven't upgraded or purchased a new BlackBerry in a while will not be able to mess around with this feature. It's only available on the Curve (8300), Perl (8100) and 8800.

Digg: What I Learned

Body: 

Today, the social news site Digg was down for quite some time. Without something to distract me from everyday work all was almost lost... if not for some alternativewebsite suggestions by Digg staff members. These suggestions were pretty straight forward, featuring great time killers like xkcd and Atom Films. Others, however, were able to shine a light on the inside of Kevin Rose's fellow employees...

A one, Brian L., just might be afraid of pentagrams...
