Three times I've tried to get this episode uploaded today and three times I've been distracted by various YouTube videos. My current distraction is this incredible cover of Voodoo Child by Stevie Ray Vaughan. I mean seriously.
But anyways. We do have an episode for you this week and it features our friend Alyson aka The Vulgar Seamstress. She's joining us for one simple reason: To talk about anime. It's probably been mentioned many times in the past but when it comes to anime Alex and I are a bit old school. By old school I mean we both own the enormous 8 disc Trigun box set that at one time cost upwards of $200. Alyson, however, has a vast knowledge of anime both new and old and now you have the opportunity to spend the next 70+ minutes listening to her talk about it.
Personally I've watched one actual anime series in the past decade and that's really unacceptable. It's just that thing that I always say I need to experience more of...but then I just kind of forget or willfully ignore it. It takes a lot to get me to actually sit down and watch something to completion. I'm really, really good at starting but never finishing. For example here are some shows that I've started, enjoyed, but have yet to complete: Breaking Bad, Daredevil season 2, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Making a Murderer, and Season 4 of Arrested Development to name a few. Come to think of it, off the top of my head aside from Parks & Recreation I think House of Cards and Stranger Things are the only shows I've been able to actually complete recently. I'd like to think it's because I'm so busy with being productive and doing adult things I just don't have time to finish anything. But in reality its mostly because my nights are taken up with Overwatch and reruns of shows I've already finished.
I guess I just have a hard time with commitment. Or I'm lazy.
Yeah, it's probably the latter.
