1 Well. That was a thing. *blink*

2 Dunno if this interests you, but NBC Sports is going to show the Reno Air Races on 3/27. (Hey, that's only 6 months after it happened, but I won't spoil it).

3 Apparently those trains heard about this...

O Lord, why hast thou forsaken me?

5 Has there...been ANY evidence...that ANYONE...actually WATCHED that series...other than Wonderduck?

WHY would someone spend MONEY to do THAT?

6 There is a... certain subset... of fan that prefers dub over sub.  Maybe this will be the greatest dub ever... or perhaps they'll do a Ghost Stories to it?

I do have it on good authority that I was not the only person to purchase a copy of Rio: Rainbow Gate! on DVD.  This same "good authority" is the one that's told me that my writeups played a part in getting the show licensed in the first place.

If I die, I expect to end up in Hell.  I've certainly earned it for that alone.

8 Ben, I watched it.

9 I bought the DVD, too.

1/3 morbid fascination, 2/3 "give mediablasters some money and maybe Yamibou will actually happen."

10 Mikeski, I didn't know that.  Steven, I thought you just "flipped through it", if you take my meaning?

I watched...I think through episode 5 or 6?  Could have been more, but I know I didn't finish it.  I certainly didn't buy it.  Though I think I offered to help pay for 'duck's purchase...after all, he did suffer the most.  If I didn't, I am now!

When I "flip through" a series simply to plunder it, I watch it in reverse order, beginning with the final episode.

I watched Rio forward; I did some skipping but I watched large parts of it. And I ended up with 114 grabs from it in my top rotation.

12 Wondering what Tarzan has been up to lately?  Judging from the sound of that fourth locomotive, he became a railroad engineer, possibly in India.

13 Nice catch, Uncle Ad!  Here's the real video link, but yep, that's the same engine all right.

14 Watching that makes one think VERY differently about what's going on in the whole Thomas the Tank Engine series. Are those poor engines running around with "KILL ME NOW. JUST KILL ME NOW" going through their engine-minds?
