    Yeah, we recently had a conversation at work about how back in the day, there was really nohinglike it and how the tv show lineup is now flooded with things that are derivative of it but just cant really capture that magic. I see it as a product of its time that has had a huge influence on pop culture, redefining how we take in our media, and its really hard to replicate that effecf

    So in X-Files matters, we've reached season five (just watched 'Post-Modern Prometheus') and I have to say, the thing I probably love the most about the X-Files is that it really never treats itself too seriously - there's always room for making fun of itself and redefining what it is. It's as serious as it needs to be in the myth arc episodes, which are mostly good for it, but probably my favorite monster of the week episodes are the ones with humor in it (or the really smurfed up ones). The ones that are just super serious and not really out there (most of the ones focusing on 'Nam vets, and there have been quite a few now, actually) always feel like kind of the wasted opportunity. It's when the series goes tongue in cheek that I feel really at home. Episodes like 'Humbug', 'Clyde Buckman's Final Repose', 'War of the Coprophages', 'Jose Chung's From Outer Space', 'Small Potatoes' and, most recently to me, 'Post-Modern Prometheus just make me feel that I really love this show and am so glad it's part of my life now. And there's a similar vibe in even slightly more sinister episodes like 'Syzygy', 'Quagmire' and 'Detour'. It's those little bits of humor, wit, and incredible chemistry between the two leads that makes this show really worthwhile.

    Both the wife and I are so glad we got into this series.

    Okay, without overwhelming you with details, I think a plot for my thing just dawned on me.

    The plot is once again the area I'm the least confident in, but I hope I can work on htat through rewrites and feedback. If you ever feel like it, I'd appreciate your feedback on some of my ideas.

    In general, though, the idea is pretty big.

    I think I actually need to start working on this new project. I am not kidding, it's all I've been able to think about for the last three days. It's insane.

Mononoke Hime

by Wolf Kanno on 11-08-2017 at 02:25 AM


A few days ago, I went to a midnight showing of Princess Mononoke at the Esquire Theater downtown. The very same theater I went to watch it the first time back in 1999 during it's initial release in the States. At that time, I was an avid anime fan who would consume whatever I could find as the medium was only in the beginning phases of it's explosive popularity in the 2000s, so the prospect of being able to watch an anime flick in an actual movie

Fighting Evil by Moonlight...

by Wolf Kanno on 06-14-2016 at 09:21 AM
So tonight I finally broke out a Christmas present I received several years ago that I never watched. Partly because for the first time in a long time, I felt ready for it. I acquired a DVD set that featured the entire DiC dub of the first two seasons of Sailor Moon, so basically the original dub, not the new one. Original Western score, Sailor Says, and the whole "Serena and Darien" name changes.


It was glorious.

Defining Gaming as Art

by Wolf Kanno on 02-23-2016 at 07:49 AM
This was going to have a subtitle, but they all sounded like pretentious academic papers and that kind of goes against the point of all of this.

So recently I began reading a very in-depth article series about two series worked on by one of the more influential game designers/writers in my life, Tetsuya Takahashi. I'll leave it up to Google for you to figure out why. Anyway, it was mostly a really well written and interesting analysis of the works and I actually learn a few things

Neon Lights, Large soda, and a handful of quarters...

by Wolf Kanno on 08-01-2015 at 10:07 AM
So lately I've been reminded of one of my life goals was that I wanted to one day build my own arcade for myself. Get all the games I grew up on and just have a fun little place devoted to letting me play through the classics and relieve the arcade scene I grew up in. I've been discussing this with friends as we try to create a list of the games we would add to the arcade. Of course there would be the classics like Galaga, Gauntlet, Pac-Man, Paperboy, Frogger, and Dig Dug but I also thought about

Trying to remember a feeling.

by Wolf Kanno on 11-04-2014 at 10:02 AM
Normally I really hate writing personal posts like this but my strong dislike of EoEO and the fact this topic doesn't feel quite "EoEO material" as well as posting it in the Writing Forum felt weird because it's a bit too personal and I feel that forum should stick to its primary focus.

So recently I came upon some writer's block with a novel I am working on and so I decided to shift gears and work on a different story instead until I recharge and have a chance to step back
