every last damn thing I love about the Internet

Poe K. Maun brings your Christmas Gift

I feel it beneficial to our society to announce that certain fellows and a lady or two have generously put to fine use their skills and learning in the field of emulation to provide the public with the latest iterations of the Pokemon universe, largely translated into English, and free of charge. One need only search the Internet with a reliable service, such as Google, for "Pokemon black white v7" to acquire the necessary files and instructions.  Alternately, one could enjoy this link.

Okay, so some of 'em are more or less than yon.

Holy F*ck

This is a human player, and the video is not accelerated.

Furthermore: damned if this isn't a cool idea: First Person Tetris

Words Cannot Describe

Some pictures need captions. Some do not. These could go either way.

Were it not for the Internet, we J-philes would still be watching Sailor Moon, reading translations of Ranma 1/2 released at a rate of one every 18 months, all the while wondering what life beyond "annie-may" or "man-gah" was like in the magical land of Japan.

Instead, we get a solid 60~75% of everything available in the Japanese market, translated by both commercial and charity sources (AKA fans), and sold for a reasonable price plus horrible shipping charge, straight to the US of A. Or Europe. Or nearly anywhere in the world where one can expect the Internet to be made publicly available in a cafe or library.

This is what I want for Xmas.
Maybe next Xmas, as I understand they are on backorder for the next 6 months. 

FYI: "pan" (パン)is Japanese for "bread."

Okay, I won't pretend I knew anything about this blog before today, but thanks to FARK, it is now my favorite.

Please, please, please, go read Hyperbole and a Half. For your own good.

Good Indeed

Well, I've forgotten to give love to one of my eldest favorites. Responsible for "We Like the Moon" (Spongmonkeys) and "Viking Kittens" among other things, the lovely limey Joel Veitch behind rathergood.com is also responsible for considerable damage.

...aaand EdII is in the shop, so I'm working on a PC. D:<

Another reason to love the Internet beyond access to foreign shows and classics: access to student work. Long ago in, say, the 80s, the only cartoons we ever got to see were the ones on Saturday mornings. If you were lucky, your parents had cable, and you could watch Nickelodeon shows any day of the week. A Disney flick would come out once or twice a year, and then you could watch that. But nobody put out their shorts, their concept pieces, their student projects and pitches. There is perfectly good animation out there -- sometimes profoundly GREAT animation -- that never reaches an audience outside of a dozen students in animation school.

The Internet gives us a view to anywhere. :3

Damnit, Russia. You and your vintage animations. If it weren't for the Internet, we would all be safe from the adorable but somewhat racist adventure of a little boat. Or a young girl's psychosis brought on by a clear lack of social interaction at home. But no, you had to put them up on YouTube and share them with the West.

Chunga chunga.

*shakes fist in the general direction of Moscow* Ruskies!

Fuck Yeah Seaking

I cannot understand why this amuses me so much.
