Well, that’s pretty much me in a nutshell, isn’t it?

I should really be doing this more often so that I don’t post all these topics at the same time that have nothing to do with one another.

Botcon was last weekend, and with it came lots of interesting new Transformers news regarding future toy lines and the upcoming movie. 2 or 3 years ago I’d have been really excited. But now it seems like I’ve lost some interest. I don’t know why, I still like Transformers and all, but I guess the more important (and less fun) elements of life have pushed their way to the forefront of my mind, so it has been hard to get excited about things like this. So I have to take a more relaxed approach to fandom for the time being, because even though I am interested enough to keep up with everything, I just can’t be bothered to care about it that much.

When I was out of town, I saw Jet Li’s Fearless. I thought it was phenomenal. By far my favorite movie of the year. I absolutely loved it. In fact, I wish it were longer, because I could have easily sat there and watched that movie for 4 or 5 hours and enjoyed every second of it. But, of course, watching a big epic with crazy kung-fu and subtitles is my perfect idea of a good time, so perhaps I am biased.

So, apparently YTV in Canada has applied for a license to broadcast an all anime channel. It’ll likely be on digital cable. Provided that this doesn’t interfere with anime shows being broadcast on regular TV as well, I think this is a great idea. Really, it should have already happened by now. There are so many shows out there that deserve a chance on Canadian TV, many of which have already aired or are airing now in the US. Plus, there are also plenty of classic series that should be on TV but would otherwise never get up on the air unless something like an all anime network came about. There’s a link right here to leave your comments so the CRTC can be convinced that this is something they should allow to happen. I’m going to let my opinion be heard, and so should you. Click the “2006-10” button on the link, then check the box that says “YTV Canada, Inc.” and take it from there. Let’s make this happen!

Life goes on, and I know that everything is not always as bad as I often make it out to be. But still, I can’t help but to feel that life is very unfulfilling right now. Situations being what they are at the moment mean that there’s nothing I can do about it except endure. But endure is what ninjas do best, so that’s what I am doing.
