Episode 64: Podfade he wrote

Download Episode 64 here.

No, certainly not podfade, but more a symptom; the reason why the show has to wrap up. Essentially, those things that we said might happen, all happened at once and thus, we were unable to record a show until recently.

Shootin' The Breeze

Ladies; the solution for satisfactory self-pleasuring has revealed itself; You'll be able to hear my voice on another podcast, once ANIPAC has been wrapped up.

Stay tuned at Capricorn Theatre.

We then talk about the Olympics; the most boring event in the whole galaxy. I discuss the "reality" of the Hong Kong torch relay as opposed to the foreign sensationalist press.

We both agree that perhaps the addition of some classy entertaining sports such as mud wrestling might spice the olympics up a bit.

Check out "Hot Chicks With Douchebags". I vote for DNA Dan; Yuck.

Still, I suppose living on as the douchebag boyfriend of a lovely young maiden, that the fate of the poor fellows depicted in the "Kaibo Zonshinzu Anatomy Scrolls".

Gone are the days of rampant piracy in Hong Kong; Check out this video from 2006:

Review: Harmageddon / Genma Taisen

...because the word armageddon isn't threatening enough, let's add the word "harm" to it. Oh yes, much more threatening now.


noun 1. physical injury or mental damage; hurt: to do him bodily harm.
2. moral injury; evil; wrong.

–verb (used with object) 3. to do or cause harm to; injure; damage; hurt: to harm one's reputation.

Ar·ma·ged·don -

–noun 1. the place where the final battle will be fought between the forces of good and evil (probably so called in reference to the battlefield of Megiddo. Rev. 16:16).
2. the last and completely destructive battle: The arms race can lead to Armageddon.
3. any great and crucial conflict.

Whoever thought of that English title, should be forced to watch a compilation of all the "slow moments" that Rintaro insists in putting in, ad-nauseam, for all eternity.

Ask any Japanese male in his mid 20's to early 30's; They'll tell you that this is the best thing put on film. That's nostalgia talking. Whilst well animated, for the most part, from a narrative perspective, it's an utter mess.

What has Mad Bull 34 and Harmageddon taught us? That New York unless New York city is well policed, the "negros" will run free, heaven forbid!

Oh! Ice Cream Truck! No...wait, it's just Genma Taisen's soundtrack.

I bet you didn't know that one of the characters, Bega (or Vega) had his own laser-disc game, did you?

Regardless, it's a piece of Anime history, and it's less than $10!

It's A Wrap!

Coming soon...The final episode of school / assignments / work LOLZ Anime Pacific.

There's still time, if you have something to contribute to the final episode. Rest assured, we'll be reading all the e-mails that you have kindly sent for the final episode.

Thank you and see you soon!

Hey Dane what is the time difference between you and Alex in terms of hours ?

Dane Scaysbrook said...

Howdy Marius! It's a 15 hour time difference between Kamloops, Canada and Hong Kong. It's currently 5:12pm as I write this, and 2:12am in Canada. Luckily, Alex's job usually requires him to work different hours so it's quite normal for him to stay up at strange times.

Unknown said...

Damn thats insane . I have to make do with an 8 hour time difference with tissuekins , and thats hell already.

Long time no new episode, thought you guys were gone for good! Anyway awesome show as usual, always interesting to hear about Dane talk about Hong Kong from a non-native(?) perspective. Kind of sad that you guys will be ending the podcast though, but I guess podcasting is quite time-consuming.

First thing i could think when i saw the name capricorn theatre was "Damn thats a good name for a podcast."
Alot better than I <3 the 80s. Not that that is a bad name, but its really unoriginal.

Also that movie Alex keeps blabbering about is Capricorn One and im pretty sure its a 70s movie and not an 80s one :P

Will Alex be making any guesst appearances on this new poddy of yours? It might feel abit empty without him around to cut you off all the time :P

Anyways, Ill try to make a voicemail for the last show. Not making any promises cause if i get as much problems with it as i did with the other one ill probably just give up.


Dane Scaysbrook said...

It's nice to see some people re-appear! I'm glad to see you're still listening, Mana!

Actually, 16 hours isn't terribly inconvinient as when I wake up in the morning it's around "prime time" in Canada, so it's not too bad. Of course in Japan, there was only a one hour time difference, ahh the good ol' days.

And Bork, dear Bork, it's actually Eeeper's podcast, and a fine job he's done. He extended the invitation to both me and Alex, but Alex is much more of a lad of the 70's and doesn't have the childhood nostalgia for 80's films, well at least that's my impression.

ZombieToaster said...

Oh i know it isnt your podcast. But you're gonna be in every episode aintcha?

Dane Scaysbrook said...

No, i'm just one of many "guest hosts" who appear on the show. In a way, it's comparable to "The Greatest Movie Ever Podcast".

However, you'll get to hear me more than once, as a matter of fact I'll be doing another episode with Eeeper this weekend.

Much as I would want to have Dane on every show, the sheer logistics of having him every show would consume more time than he's currently using up on Ani-Pac. Plus the fact that I want opinions on films across a broad spectrum. I've just finished a podcast with Aaron from the WARP Podcast.

As for Alex I don't mind talking about whatever era of film he wanted to talk about. As it says on the site I'm currently into 80's films but I could move onto other era's after I'm done with my 80's picks.

ZombieToaster said...

Ok, well im still happy :P

Anyways i just watched the first half of New Getter Robo. On your advice and im really liking it. Personaly i think its better than the old getter robo anime. Altho ive only seen the 3 eps that got fansubbed of that.
So Dane, what do you recomend me checking out next in the world of giant robots?


Dane Scaysbrook said...

Funnily enough, my last anime "big buy" was the Aura Battler Dunbine series, which is fantastic for the first half and then in true Tomino fashion wastes our time with a totally un-neccesary second half (fueled by a Dues-Ex-Machina that makes the first half of the show utterly irrelevant) finally ending with the most depressing end to pretty much all the characters and cast. I paid a lot for that show and got badly burnt (well for the last half). Are you watching Macross Frontier? That's THE Mecha show!

ZombieToaster said...

Actually I havnt seen any macross shows at all. I tried to watch the do you remember love movie just about a week ago. But sadly i couldnt get the sound to work so ill have to try to find it on ebay again. Also is it episodic? Cause i preffer watching finished shows if they arent.

Anyways i finished watching new getter robo. I have to say i really liked the part in the middle where they traveled back to the steampunk medieval japan.
The thing i love about 13 episode shows is how you can watch em in one day :)

Also watched the first episode of ashita no joe. I really liked it. The rough art was really nice.
To bad only 3 eps have been fansubbed.

Watched both seasons of baki the grappler last week. I didnt think that would be a series to my likeing. Shows how much i know about my own taste :P
While i hate when they just randomly throw in a martial arts tournament into a manga or anime. I actually like shows and movies that are about martial arts tournaments. Bloodsport for example. Love that flick. You should review it ;)

Watched the crusher joe movie. I liked the artstyle but thats aboout it. It was filled with jokes, none of wich i found funny and many of the characters just bugged me.

Watched some random ova's i had lying around. Most of them sucked. Especially twilight of the dark masters. Talk about a movie wich takes its priorities wrong. It doesnt matter how good a movie looks if the story sucks.
Watched Trava: Fist planet. Have about the same opinions about that as with twilight of the dark masters. Really good looking ova. But the story wasnt very good. Better than in twilight tho.

Oh and yes, ive been watching helluvalot of anime last two weeks. :P Watched afew other ova's too but they were nothing special, niether really bad nor good.

Planning to watch some kotetsushin jeeg and mazinger z stuff soon. To bad they got HK subs tho.


Jeff Tatarek said...

Dane is an amber rain alert anything like a golden shower? I felt the need to ask the experts on this matter.

Dane Scaysbrook said...

Jeff, as someone who has basked in both, I can asure you they aren't that similar!

Goodness, Bork. You really HAVE been watching a lot of stuff. Regarding Macross, it's as much a soap opera as it is a Mecha show, so it's both episodic and not. I've always actually preferred Macross to Gundam as I'm apparently extremely gay and touchy feely.

You could always check out the OVA's first, Macross Zero (which is a prequel to the original TV series) and Macross Plus. Macross Plus being one of my favourite anime's of all time.

Dane Scaysbrook said...

assure! assure!

*phew* I almost mispelt something.

ZombieToaster said...

What happened? For awhile it said there was no blog by this name :O

Also watched a bunch of more anime and aquired those macross ova's from ebay ;P

Dane Scaysbrook said...

Ebay; See what you've done Alex!

I didn't do anything to the blog, perhaps blogger was having some problems?

ZombieToaster said...

Ok good to hear.

Oh and i did buy the ninja scroll tv series since i saw it really cheap. Personaly i didnt think the movie was one of kawajiris better creations. And most people say the tv series isnt as good as the movie. But i still want to see it. And when the price is right anything can happen :P (Dont think i had bought any anime since last summer. But then again, i have hardly watched any since then either)

ZombieToaster said...

Oh right and i also bought the toward the terra movie dubbed in swedish :P Also cheap as dirt.

Dane Scaysbrook said...


The Ninja Scroll TV series is TERRIBLE, it's not comparible to the film in any way (whether you liked the film or not)

Be warned!

ZombieToaster said...

Hohohoho thats what everyone tells me :P

Anyways i took a break from the anime yesterday and watched some lois and clark and hercules the legendary journeys instead ;)


ZombieToaster said...

Watched an old samurai movie from 1968 called "KILL!" Yesterday, it was highly enjoyable.
