Why does "Holy Knight" suck so bad?

Hi guys,

I've been playing around with restructuring this blog, and trying to refine it so that it's something that I would like to go to as much as I actually want to write for it. This is why I've been doing the WotA Weekly's and did a huge push of posts in February. WotA Weekly is going to be once a week (on Fridays), and I'm also going to do some sort of math post once a week, and for the last thing . . .

Well, the number one thing the internet seems to regularly fail at when I go to look for information is reviews and recommendations on anime. It's hard to find a source that you actually trust. So I figure, I can be a source that is at least consistent. So here's my first look at "Holy Knight", the dub is available on Crunchyroll if you want to check it out (although . . . well, you probably shouldn't support this kind of content)

What happened this weekend???

Hey everyone,

I didn't get a chance to be on my computer this weekend so I am only now seeing that Friday's Weekly WotA not only didn't post on time, apparently Blogger lost the draft. Not sure what happened there, but I've been having internet connectivity issues so I'm going with that explanation instead of something wrong with the hallowed Google.

I'll be posting at least one WotA blog tomorrow and possibly two, along with the regularly scheduled Friday blog on Friday.

Sorry for the inconvenience! and know that you can email me if something doesn't seem right on any of the sites. A lot of times I am focusing on writing new material or grading/day-jobbing more than updating the sites, so sometimes mistakes happen.

Thank you for your support!

So how was your weekend? I spent it running between family matters and grading an absurd amount of calculus papers. Comment below

News: Jon Stewart leaving the Daily Show

I guess with all the good news in my fandoms some bad news had to happen also . . .

Site Recommendation: RiptApparel.com

If you guys haven't heard of RiptApparel.com yet, here's my recommendation.

Each day RiptApparel.com provides 3 designs available as t-shirts, hoodies, posters, and . . . coasters(?) for some reason???

The designs are always a part of geek culture, be that anime, comics, movies, etc, and they're affordable also (as of Jan 2015, $11 for a t-shirt + an expected amount of shipping & handling). For instance, this weekend they had a couple Deadpool shirts, a Big Hero 6/Iron Man mashup, Attack on Titan, My Neighbor Totoro and a Neon Genesis Evangelion.

What really gets you is the fact that the designs are only available for 24 hours at the normal price, and an additional 12 hours at an elevated price (+$5).

WotA Weekly: Yggdrasil

Hi folks! Today we're talking about the World Tree, Yggdrasil.

Spider-Man coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe

Wow! What a great week for my fandoms. First, Netflix announces a Legend of Zelda series, and now SPIDER-MAN IS SAVED . . .

Value of Your Degree

This is a version of a lecture that I usually end up giving to the dead-eyed college students viewing math courses as nothing more than an obstacle to their eventual college degree-enabled successful life.
