This should’ve came out 2 months ago, but it didn’t, but better late than never. 10 years of doing this podcast, like dang. It’s the ususal fare that we’ll treat this as our holiday/general discussion episode with a minor review thrown in. So here we go.
(0:00 – 59:00) The blabbling of blabblers that like to blabble 2023 Edition: We’re going all over the map in this episode, so just chill out and enjoy. There’s plenty to talk about that happened the last two months of 2022. So we got our hot takes on when Vic Mignogna didn’t wear pants to a stream and the crazy VA’s that had their opinions on that, Ye on Alex Jones , American Political Redneck drama in the House / Midterms, the Dan Crenshaw/Solidus Snake conspiracy, and much more
(59:00 – 2:34:16) A “no craps given” Review of Kiss Meets the Phantom of the Park / Christmas talk blabbling: I think Jonn and Dustin spend about a total of 10 minutes talking about this forgotten Kiss movie, which gets wrangled in with Limited Run Games drama. Then this goes into how our Christmas went with Jonn talking about Lupin the Third films, David Lynch filmogrophy, our thoughts on book-to-movie adaptations, fansub/anime licensing talk, and much more. Dustin goes on to say how his Christmas was filled with busted pipes and overtime because Hell froze over and came to South Carolina during Christmas, along with seeing NC State lose yet ANOTHER bowl game, and seeing a dead body in ATL on New Years Eve. All this and more in this episode…
OP – Welcome to our 10th Anniversary!
ED – 10 long years of podcasting is quite a price to pay…

Truly the most rocking movie ever made…
It could be settled with a case of Bud and a pack of Copenhagen, yea bo….

We’re a little bit late than we wanted, but here we are in our final installment of our Berserk coverage of the 2016 and 2017 series. Oh yea, E3 was this year, and it sucked, and we talk about that too.
(0:00 – 34:15) E3 2021 Review – Nothing really much to say, because nothing really happened. A new Halo, some talk from a company about diversity in the gaming industry, you know the hard hitting stuff every gamer really cares about, right? In terms of games the company that showed up was Limited Run Games, which Dustin talks why everyone should get everything Zombies Ate My Neighbors from them. Its a great game BUY IT!!! This also talks about Dustin still working on the old Initial D cabs, how LRG has the rights to Plumbers Don’t Wear Ties, and much more!
(34:15 – 1:55:17) Review: Berserk 2016/2017 – This finalizes what has been animated so far from Miura series, and Jonn and Dustin are there to share their thoughts on the series. This gets into Japanese censorship for nudity, bad CGI shows and Max Steel, the best review of Species 2, manga talk, the great failings of Tokyopop, internet drama and much more.
Just a heads up, make sure to check out Trigun ReAnimate, a collaborative project to reanimate the Trigun intro.
OP – Best opening to an anime should be a song from Clerks…
ED – Here’s a band that writes music about Berserk…

(0:00 – 01:04:00) Serving #1: A Stand Alone Complex (sorta) Review – Everything in this write-up was written sometime last month, but better late than never.

It’s per tradition that we release convention reports half a year after the con happened, because oh freaking well. So if your wanting someone to drone on about their time at a con that you weren’t at during a long holiday flight or drive, we got your covered!
(0:00 – 1:34:15) Animazement 2018 Con Report – Dustin regales his tale of a con that happened when the weather was a whole lot warmer, where the first time in years he is a regular con lackey roaming the hallways and not dealing with patrons in the dealers room. Stories can be told about hanging out with other Otaku he’s know about online and their posse, Dustin old parking job and the economics surrounding that industry, modifying your SNES, getting sweet swag from Limited Run Games on a yearly visit, trying to talk to women at the bar with a Salvador Dali art work on their back, the dreaded bootleg dealer came back, rednecks whining about stuff they don’t have in public restaurants, drunken dads that roam the cons and more.

Dustin recants his experience by hanging out with his buddy downtown to ride on electric scooters after eating some Pho’King amazing food, getting the correct panelist badge, meeting with old friends, meeting cool people like Tim Eldred, Micheal Sinterniklaas, Darius Washington and Andy Field, talking about panels done at the convention (which were titled Anime in High Gear, Christianity in Anime and Mobile Suit Gundam in America), buying Neil Nadelman old Gundam laserdiscs, getting the sweet hookup on Voltes V from Dave Merrill, getting to meet the Corn Pone man himself in person, people who have seizures at the con and how the staff handles that proper, Is Daryl Surat a Pokemon Seizure Episode Denier that it was ALL A CONSPIRACY? and more.
(04:03:30 – 04:29:48) Closing Remarks Part 2 – Somehow we get into closing remarks territory with the past pre-hearing of the Kavanaugh case, banned episodes of Pokemon, general anime and politics talk, people who had complaints on panels at AWA from an alt-right perspective and more.
