Spot Spot Spotted.

"Part of me wishes they'd hurry up with the post-human cyborg/digital consciousness transfer technology..."

-Karel P Greyduck

Apparently Boston Dynamics reads The Pond.
I don't have a use for one... I mean, besides the obvious take over the world scenarios, or rubber duck mobility device scenarios... but it's still very cool.

And remember, these are the same people who made Spot dance a year ago.
Won't anybody consider robot rights?  "Dance for the camera, Spot, dance like your electronic life depends on it" is just a terrible image.

At Least I Was Comfortable

After going to bed at a less-than-sane time Saturday night, I woke up on Sunday with a problem.  I was ill.


The headache wasn't terrible, but the fever was.  Not that it was all that high, but because it existed at all.  AND WOULDN'T GO AWAY.  I woke up, I used the loo, I went back to sleep.  Repeat every few hours.  Next thing I knew, it was 530pm, the sun was basically down.  I got some food, sent a few texts and once again, the next thing I knew it was 830pm and I was heading back to bed.  There was a lot of "next thing I knew" going on, lemme tell ya.  

Midnight Sunday night/Monday morning found me here.  And now I'm going to go back to sleep.  Because I still feel like cacapoopoo.  I no longer know if I have a fever, and I don't care.  I want to wake up in the morning feeling like I'm vaguely human again.

Until then, I shall sleep.

It's Been 10 Years.


They say time heals all wounds.  I just wish it didn't have to.  Still miss you, Momzerduck.  

A lot.

Ducks In Anime: Forgot About This One!

-Shokugeki no Soma S2 OVA

While casually searching through one or another of my "screenshots I may use someday" folders, which are filled to the digital brim with reaction shots or interesting things... trains, scenery porn, that sort of stuff... I discovered a Ducks In Anime picture I didn't recognize!  Understand, this is practically unfathomable to me... I can tell at a glance if I have used an anime duckie in a D.I.A. post, and I know this one has never been.  PARTICULARLY since it's Megumi, who would rank rather high on my list of favorite characters of late.  She's interesting, which is more than I can say about the main for this particular show.

What really (note: not really) terrifies me is that I don't remember watching this particular episode/OVA/whatever.  Indeed, I just yarrrred it and watched and I'm almost positive I haven't seen it before.  So how did the first picture in this post wind up in possession?  I don't know, it will forever be a mystery to me.  But hey, more Ducks In Anime, amirite?

Look! A Spot Of Commonplace Activity In My Otherwise Humdrum Life

Stealing a page from my good buddy Brickmuppet, I am warning you in advance about the contents of this post.  If you are not interested in listening to bloviate about mundane achievements, then please watch this wonderful AMV that has altogether too few views on yootoob (less than 1200 at the moment of posting).

If that is enough for you, then I thank you for your time and have a lovely day.  Otherwise, press onward (or "more") to continue.
more...

Ducks In Anime: Yes I Saw It

It started simply enough... an e-mail saying "Watch DanMachi2 Ep 05."  Then a text message.  Then a comment here on The Pond.  Then another text message.  Then a post over at R's place.  Then another e-mail.  And what heralded all this fooferraw?


-Danjon ni Deai o Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Daro ka S02, Ep05
First, it was a duckie.  A very nice duckie to be sure, don't get me wrong, but a single duckie.  At which point, the producktion staff realized that while a single duckie is nice, many duckies are better.  Much better.  Much much better.

Even I had to admit, that was a lot of duckies... and they almost literally appeared out of nowhere.  First one duckie, then many duckies flowed their way into the bath like they had been there all the time... which they hadn't, as an earlier establishing shot confirms.

So where did all of these rubber duckies come from?  Particularly considering this is a fantasy world of swords and magic and Hephaestus isn't a lame, misshapen, ugly man but a eye-wateringly hot redhead with an eyepatch... rubber duckies should, sadly, not be a thing.  But yet, there they are!

I am hardly one to complain about rubber duckies in anime.  Heavens no!  I don't even care about internal consistency when it comes to their appearance in a series... the more duckies the better, is what I say.  Particularly when we all really know why they're here...

Yep.  That's why.  They're just doing their job.
