We also discussed theater and what Mac is working and has going thru in New Yourk being a Playwright. Lots of good writing from Mr. Rogers, and our own Mr. Lengel has recieved soem great news as well. Tune in zone out and enjoy the conversation.
I was out of the office, house and my mind that weekend, so Maximillian not only got to edit the podcast but also conducted it as well. Sounds like everyone had a great time LB and Amanda both a pair of awesome editors and field reports/panelists in the anime industry for ANI.ME gave us some insight on what to look forward to for this spring release and some of their own favorites as well as what the in was at Sakura Con this year. Psycho Pass seems to have recieved quite the warm welcome and following this last winter quarter, just listening to the opening and ending theme I sense a reason of why. I myself am looking forward personally to the 2 Season of Accel world and the up and coming Genshiken Nidaime AKA Genshiken 2.0 (in my book anyway).

Both I and one of our other podcasters Bruce decided to review Defiance on Syfy and The Game from Trion Worlds. It also gave us a chance to discuss the game both from the PC view as well as an X-Box edition and there are some debatable subjects that do come to the table as we discussed the nuances that bothered both us with our experiences with the game.
Definitely had some opinions on the show as well, as we went into comparisons and what was done quite well and what fell short of what’s been worked on over the last four years in preparation for this venture melding of TV with Game. Anyways, here it is, and as usual please feel free to leave comments and opinions.

Annette Funicello, child star/Mouseketeer on “The Mickey Mouse Club” in the 1950s for a number of years and in her late teens teamed up with Frankie Avalon in a series of ‘60s teen based movies from titles of titles like “Beach Blanket Bingo” and “Bikini Beach,” she also had cameos in in some the those great campy movies like Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine and even “Back to the beach” in late 1989. She passed away this Monday morning at Mercy Hospital in Bakersfield California. By her bedside were children who held her hand and she slipped away into history.
Funicello stunned fans and friends in 1992 with the announcement about her ailment. Yet she was cheerful and upbeat, coping and coming to terms with the disease with a courage that contrasted with her lightweight teen image of old. The dark-haired Annette was 13 when she gained fame on Televisions “The Mickey Mouse Club,” a late-afternoon variety show aimed towards children by Disney that ran from 1955 to 1959. She also had a wonderful recording career as a singer as well with, 15 albums and hit singles like “Tall Paul” and “Pineapple Princess.” Outgrowing the kid roles by the early ’60s, Annette teamed with Avalon in a series of movies for American-International, the first film company to exploit the burgeoning teen market. The filmmakers weren’t aiming for art, and they didn’t achieve it. As Halliwell’s Film Guide says of “Beach Party”: “Quite tolerable in itself, it started an excruciating trend.”
The films had songs, cameos by older stars and a few laughs. The 1965 “Beach Blanket Bingo,” for example, Among the other titles: “Muscle Beach Party,” ”Bikini Beach,” ”How to Stuff a Wild Bikini” and “Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine.” featured subplots involving a mermaid, Gulligan, a motorcycle gang and a skydiving school run by comedian and wiseguy Don Rickles, with some comicical scenes with silent film star Mr. Buster Keaton.
The beach films also featured ample youthful skin. But not Ms.Funicello’s. In an 1987 interview Ms. Funicello mentions, “Mr. Disney said to me one day, ‘Annette, I have a favor to ask of you. I know all the girls are wearing bikinis, but you do have an image to uphold. I would appreciate it if you would wear a one-piece suit.’ I did, and I never regretted it.”
Ms. Funicello married her agent, Jack Gilardi. Together they had three children, Gina, Jack and Jason. However the couple did divorced 18 years later. Then 1986 she married Mr. Glen Holt, a harness racehorse trainer. Soon after her acting career ended, she became a devoted mother and wife to her family. She and her children have also been seen in some of the Skippy Brand Peanut Butter Commercials from back in the mid to late 70’s I remember watching them myself back then. This particular blogger is going to miss her cheery disposition and outlook on life.
Leiji Matsumoto Created back 1977-79 an original manga, the main character Captain Harlock who rebels against the global government and fights for humanity with his crew of 40 and his space battleship The Arcadia. This manga become so popular and spread like wild fire that a 1978-1979 television anime series born, along with a movie and its sequel, Arcadia of My Youth: Endless Orbit SSX. I grew up on Captain Harlock in my early teen years on television after school. I wouldn’t watch G.I Joe or Captain Planet or mask. I was hooked on Battle of the Planets, Star Blazers, and Robotech, reading Ninja High School and Eastman’s TMNT, and the ilk.
When I heard that Japanese Cinema writer Harutoshi Fukui was involved in this I was like *WHOA!* this should be truly awesome! I mean Harutoshi has been noted for his works with Mobile Suit Gundam UC novels, and live-action Bōkoku no Aegis has refitted the story to that of the current modern society. Also along with him is Shinji Aramaki noted for some of his works Appleseed being just one example, is directing with the latest cinema-graphic technology the same scale and direction as a Hollywood production. The film has Toei Animation backing them up with a budget estimated at roughly over 30 million U.S. dollars? If this preview as a taste of what to expect, I think I know where I will be when it does hit state-side theatrical release. I’m betting they might even preview this at SDCC 2013 as well!
Captain Harlock the Movie is slated for a Theatrical release in the 3rd Quarter of 2013.
