I have a big exam on Monday so the next two days will entail cramming and sleep (the latter being a very important component of test preparation that I frequently forget).
In the meantime a quick perusal of the interwebs reveals several bloggers who actually have taken the time to provide content over the last several days.
Medieval Otaku gets in touch with his inner his Edith Hamilton to discuss the Oresteian influences in Kill-La-Kill.
Don has one of the two blogs whose embeds are invisible to me on Epic, so I very nearly missed his latest post, which I had initially taken to be a formatting error. That would have been tragic as I would have missed this gem, which shows that these kids today still have an appreciation of the classics. (There is a side by side comparison here.)
Observing us from his secret headquarters in Australia with a mixture of bemusement and horror Pixy seems to have come up with the line of the week…
Heretefore I had thought the term "twintails" meant something entirely different from this.
Now I know better.

...that's 1700 years old...
Well, you probably need to talk to Suburbanbanshee.

In lieu of content here's yet more holiday cheesecake.
Given that there was no love for the G.u.P. girls, we'll try Kannagi.
Of course...I suspect that Steven has simply out-bid me in this regard. (Link totally NSFW!)
...It is a testament to my wasted life that I never knew that about Tuesday.

A friend who desires NO credit for this due to fear of passive aggressive trolling and other markers of 'tolerance' sends me this link...
The Best of Social Justice is a Tumbler blog compiled by a brave or self flagellating soul who compiles posts, tweets, and chats of various "social justice" crusaders.
It's hours of fun...or horror. But it can be useful too. For instance the fact that a prominent poster is named Lickingmuppets is one reason for me to carry a gun.

If giraffe's could speak, it would be something of a challenge, don't you think? *
Note though that he has not allowed his handicap to hold him back. Instead, he has leveraged it into a way to further motivate himself to pursue his dream....which I was quite surprised to learn is to become a LUMBERJACK! )
* that's why they type.

The particular years she chose to focus on are 2008-2012.

Could it be a commentary upon the direction of our society?
Perhaps it's a disquisition upon the ephemeral brevity of our lives?
It could be a message giving orders to those amongst us who lie in wait to do us harm.
Is it stress?
A cry for help?
..or does it represent something far stranger, the likes of which would have not been out of place in the writings of the late Charles Fort.
I must admit that I do not know.
However, I'm pretty sure that I should be concerned by this.

Well this weeks show included a question from a viewer about anime. Mr. Whittle expounded for a few minutes on why anime is not his cup of tea. This disquisition however, quickly dovetailed into glowing praise for someone who does not share his opinion on the medium. According to Mr Whittle, someone named 'Steven Den Beste' is brilliant, insightful, inspiring and ALWAYS RIGHT. Mr. Whittle spent several minutes talking about how important Mr. Den Beste's USS Clueless was in the early days of the blogosphere and what a joy it is to read the editorials Steven still occasionally does. After this genuinely heartfelt tribute, Whittle directed his anime attuned listeners to Mr. Den Beste's "Anime Manga...HENTAI..That's the word I'm looking for.. Hentai blog Chizumatic"
....because Steven Den Beste is just the cat's meow and if you're into that hentai stuff Chizumatic is where to find it!
While Mr. Whittle did mention as an aside that he wasn't entirely clear on the meanings of Manga, Anime & Hentai, I suspect that Steven's incoming search terms will be amusing for a bit.
UPDATE: Just to clarify: Hentai is pr0n. Chizumatic is not a hentai blog. The caption is in jest..

Heads are exploding.
Cause or effect?
You be the judge.
While we ponder that, I'll just leave this Miko Miko Dance selection here.
I don't think those two costumes are the regular Touhou skins. Given the detail they are really impressive
