#WHAT THE FLUFF AMERICA! Charlottesville Riots leaves one dead. what is the Confederate symbol?


Long time no see.

Well, I lost my written lists for the 8 Great Rivals and 7 shows that made me cry topics, so these are on hold until I can write them back up.

Next time, I will have to use one of these:

This week I have to wonder what year I’m in? it seems to be the 1940s, 50s or 60s because we have a White Nationalist Movement and we have threats of nuclear war.

CNN: Charlottesville, Virginia (CNN)One person was killed and 19 were hurt when a speeding car slammed into a throng of counterprotesters in….

ABC: Charlottesville murder suspect’s teacher: ‘He thought Nazis were pretty cool guys’

The Statue at the Center of Charlottesville’s Storm

Three’s a charm. The Rule of three.

Why do people support the Confederacy? Or even want to? For it it such an anachronistic symbol of division in the United States. What is wrong in the modern era? And what do we possibly want from the past? When we are progressing into an era of technology, expansive learning and curiosity, diversity, etc.

It’s funny because no where in Michigan is the Union flag displayed except in the museums. Why? Because it was replaced by the fifty star American flag, along with the state. You can see flags from other countries mounted on hotels and law firms. This international display displays on what the structure stands for. And I should add: The flags in their current form. What purpose would the Union flag have?

Instead of thinking over it, I rather just show videos to display the thoughts of others. It is indeed obvious that what happened in Charlottesville is disgusting, and I rather not just say “it’s disgusting” and leave it alone at that. What I really like to do is offer different sides and what show what they look like, despite how appalling they may be.

In all honesty, this cannot and will not go away. There are rooted values that someone is above the weak; the bad examples of one or few can lead to the believe that genocide or some form of destruction is a solution. I seem to recall everyone getting upset with the idea of banning Confederacy flags (Looks cool TBH).

Internet is a scary place.

CGI #saintseiya is coming to Netflix! Doggie Sketch a Day


Saint Seiya, AKA: Knights of the Zodiac, is coming to Netflix as a new CGI series.

So, why not have a sketch a day to commemorate?

This was done today but not sure how long. Could’ve been around five minutes. Okay, so the hands/fingers are getting a bit better.

The Red Comet World | 8 Great Rivals from the Robot Japanese anime genre (Part 4) #Auris #Char


ChB2a8dUkAEMTgG.jpg

We’re at the halfway point, and I wanted to mention GUNDAM at one point.

Char Aznable was a commanding officer in the Zeon Republic and the focal threat for  Amuro Rei, the main character of Mobile Suit Gundam. That’s the first title to this long-running series, and after that, there’s always been a masked man (or any guy hiding his eyes or face) that follows in the impression of giving the protagonist hell.

Thinking over the series as a whole, I kept wondering over which masked man/rival should I put on this list? I thought of the majority of the series, including Rau Le Cruset from SEED, Chronicle of V and Scwartz of G; for those who don’t have a mask, there’s Gato of STARDUST, Haman, and Daryl of THUNDERBOLT. Who’d be the best fighter that the main character is determined to face? I don’t even mind mentioning Luin Li of the Capital Guard (G of Reconguista).

I’ll have to go with the beginning, the one who started it all, even though he isn’t the most interesting fellow. Char Aznable has his own spin off, his movie, two artificial beings based off of him. No one can doubt that he has massive influence on this series, in real life, and in other products, really coming from the core of the first gundam series. His C.V Ikeda Shuuichi even calls Char “the main character”. It suits him well considering Char’s parents died, and that’s a typical case for gundam main characters 😉

His lines and nickname “The RED COMET” are often parodied as well, as well as a masked (or red-related) character that Ikeda Shuuchi plays (ie: Shanks from ONE PIECE). There’s even an Amuro-Char reverse parody in Detective Conan. Matter of fact, I think Char and Amuro are one of the most intense rivalries in the gundam series along with Gato and Kou in the short SATRDUST MEMORY series. In fact, the radical TITANS movement in Z Gundam was perpetrated to the actions of Gato and his superior Delaz.

Amuro and Char has constantly fought with each other, thus the latter’s mention. Consistent fighting, creating a new war, a long-time influence, a real-life connection, etc.

Notable Mention (?)

Yuuki Tatsuya, AKA: Meijin Kawaguchi, is the main rival of Sei Iori and Reiji in GUNDAM BUILD FIGHTERS. However, he isn’t the primary rival in the second season of BUILD FIGHTERS TRY, but still shows his might. I asked myself would I place Yuuki over Char? In conclusion, I said no. There is no denying this kid’s skill. Reiji had an absolute, burning desire to beat Yuuki just as much as Amuro did with Char. However, Build Fighters is a fun parody, shorter, and the battles between Yuuki and main are few in comparison. And since it is a part on a sports genre, Gunpla Battle, there are inevitably a TON of a rivals that intervene in the series that even the main rival has to put down in order to reach the top.

And Yuuki doesn’t parody Char’s lines, but he does use red units, including a Zaku, and he parodies the 0079 opening theme (ie: Moeagaru! Gunpla!“). So maybe Yuuki is theme song parodier ;D Even in second season, it’s the Fighter Try’s OP theme “CERULEAN”

GENKAI NANTE NAI!” (“There are no LIMITS!”)

World Influence
There is too many to mention. but this is one of my favorites. A Char-based TOYOTA Auris was build.

Help ya boy Shinji out! | Celebrate @Megumi_Ogata’s 25th Anniversary ALBUM #animeg25th #wishes


LINK: “Animeg. 25th” Megumi Ogata 25th Seiyuu Debut Anniversary Project

Long story short.

Ogata Megumi is a voice actress/singer that I admire, with too many credits for me to list, and she’s an advocate for animators in their business and her fans including overseas.

So now, she believes that one of the ways to support financial dissemination is through crowdfunding. She’s releasing a new CD, and overseas fans can get it through Tokyo Mirai Mode‏.

How? Just back the crowdfunding.

And here is the album’s JUICY tracklist:

“Taiyou Ga Mata Kagayaku Toki” – from Yu Yu Hakusho: Ghost Files – feat. Nobuyuki Hiyama
“Moon Revenge” – from Sailor Moon R: The Movie – feat. Masako Katsuki
“Platinum” – from Cardcaptor Sakura
“Komm, süsser Tod” – from THE END OF EVANGELION
“Driver’s High” – from Great Teacher Onizuka
“Fukanzen Nenshou” – from Kamisama Dolls
“My Soul, Your Beats!” – from Angel Beats!
“Kimi no Kioku” – from Persona 3
“Kamisama no Itazura” – from Tamayura: Hitotose
“Bye Bye Yesterday” – from Assassination Classroom Second Season – feat. TERASAKA-GUMI
“Hikari” – from Hamatora
“Zetsubousei: Hero Chiryouyaku” – from Danganronpa
“Sakuranagashi” – from EVANGELION: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo

Indeed. All of these products, from EVA to Persona, Ogata has appeared in all of them. I am personally looking forward to the Sailor Moon duet; believe me, I’ve contained my excitement. Even though the goal has been met, let’s acknowledge this wish further and continue to support Ogata.

“What can I do to overcome this invisible wall separating the fans and myself? There has to be something that even I can do, right?”

(Sic) I also wish my project could help finds residing outside of Japan to gain access to a wide variety of Japanese content. Nothing would make me happier than having those wishes come true.

P.S:

AROUND THE WORLD BABY! (Yes, I like Daft Punk)

Spreading the love? About @GL_Phantasy + an Issue in Michigan


What good am I? If I don’t promote my own platform, expecting someone to see it?

Once in a while, on social media, I like to share news or some knowledgeable tidbits that I happen to pass by. About future developments such as what we see in outer space, renewable gas, school techniques, touching stories about the handicapped, local sports, military, etc. Not necessarily politics. Something with some kind of meaning. So, I made an account to spread interest in different themes.

Maybe I didn’t think too ahead.

To provide advertisement, networking, and maybe advice with research. For example, you want to work in psychology so you and I should find a way to spread counseling (or maybe you want to be a teacher, and you want to do writing). For example on writing, you can give me one of your essays to put on my blog. Also, advertising donation pages, and maybe my own personal projects if I ever find time.

I’m not too embarrassed by it. It’s something that I always enjoyed. It’s something I think social media should be used for.

On the deeper end, it is a selfish reason to grow money. I also have my insecurities as desirable money doesn’t come soon and net popularity is unpredictable.

Being human, I can be selfish and financial insecurity is one of the top issues in the United States.

  • BOSTON REVIEW: 80 Percent of Americans Experience Economic Insecurity (Fischer)
  • theatlantic.com: What Is Driving America’s Financial Woes? (Green)
  • It’s funny when people can get paid for their own opinion or sharing information via free writing, or exposing rhetoric. It is not that strange to do then?

    I even considered AdSense and changing the blog address, since the website’s name is a bit ridiculous, and who is interested in a person called “Doggie”? You don’t exactly find a place called “Supra anything” and expect something useful. It is indeed in the name. You see “Conservative Wagon”, you think political; you see “StickWithIt”, you may think…of a few things.

    More importantly, the views don’t stack up so it’s not a good idea for me to try Adsense. Various people always note about the unpredictability of net popularity.

    TO be honest, despite the blog address, I want people to read more. That’s why I do comic reviews. I plan to do more for novels.

    My six-year-old niece is in a growing psychological stage in her life and has to start being more comfortable in reading. She’s also saving money in her piggie bank (or trying to). Reading is a growing problem in Michigan, particularly southern Michigan (AKA: The troll land), where over 80% of the Detroit residents are not proficient in reading and math. For the latter, I’m probably one of them and I stay clear from accounting.

    Apparently, in Detroit, it is getting so bad that they have to sue the goverment and local teachers for making their children illiterate. I even brought that up at one point.

    CNSNews.com: Detroit Public Schools: 93% Not Proficient in Reading; 96% Not Proficient in Math

    CNS states 90%, while I see comments starting 50%; it’s still too high. Among that, there is also the issue with real estate and crime.

    So, I thought, “If I could do something, I’d like it”. At the most, I can only offer exposure for these articles whether they are frauds or not.

    Why Do Indian-American Kids Do So Well in Spelling Bees?


    In other words: ENGAGE!
    Don’t worry about losing or some defect, you can get better.

    Longreads

    Indian-American children dominate the competitive spelling scene. At Harper’s, Vauhini Vara — a former spelling champ herself —meets a few of the current crop of young spellers and their parent coaches.

    One of the spellers from my Phase 2 room, Naysa Modi, was in line with her father, Nayan. Naysa, a sixth grader who had participated in the National Spelling Bee the previous two years, was a sprite in a pink headband. When I asked her how the latest round had gone, she chirped: “If you saw me and Siyona Mishra” — another Scripps alum — “we were chatting our heads off!” The Modis came from a small town in Louisiana, where there wasn’t much of an Indian immigrant population. Nayan told me that they learned about the North South Foundation only recently, through the community they’d found at Scripps.

    “I sometimes regret she started pretty late,” he said. “But what’s…

    Unacceptable. Words for mental abuse online #health #support


    So far,  I made a couple of entries on information, what’s relayed, by who, and about the consideration of conducting oneself. One’s character.

    Months ago, I saw something that made me irate, but more so, I became impressed by the aftermath.

    This is Doggie Simmer Talk.

    Who is deserving of online abuse and why?

    Not sure what I would call her. She’s not my “friend” even though I’d secretly like her to be (did I say “secret”?). I’ll keep it anonymous.  Let’s call her “Lady M”, like Mikumo from Macross.

    She’s “young” and talented with the big sister title.

    Mikumo_kkk.png

    Popularity could be synonymous to “knowing thoroughly what he/she does”. Whether it is broadcasting, which I always loved, culinary, writing, or singing.

    But I respect her. This Lady M. I don’t like the idea of someone being put under another due to popularity. However, if it weren’t for popularity, some wouldn’t follow in “Lady M’s” footsteps. Some people, notable names even, aspire to be her or work with her.

    M seemed to have be accused for “self-promotion”. In other words, an unworthy human being; maybe a washout even? There is a gap within the “popularity level”. Also, she might’eve been called bad names and was frequently disparaged.

    Why was such hatred received?

    Jealously? A thrill? A deceptive truth?

    Lady M was being susceptible to abuse for some time. It is perhaps the reason why she’s been fickle and upset over “her words”. Grieving over it as if she received some attacks that most could not see. One point she put her foot down and revealed this abuse.

    “That is not my intention”.

    “Those words, do not send them to another woman aside from myself!”

    It is possible that she “isn’t nice“.  Who isn’t rash and who doesn’t get angry and say a harsh thing? Especially on social media? However, so far, from my own impression, M is pretty accepting to a follower or a random stranger, easily inspired, and does not say a cruel thing. People who have worked with her has stated the same thing: “Heart is nice”, “big-hearted”, “nice big sister”, relatively the same.

    They describe her as “温かい” (atatakai) and “大らか” (ooraka; generous). This is a reply to someone who said that M “seemed scary”:

    ええっ⁉︎ 優しいよ〜(^ー^)ノ💕
    まぁ声も強いし、キャラのイメージもあるんだろうね^_−☆
    ハッキリした方だけど、心はあったかいんでござるよ

    “Huh?! She’s tender.

    Voice is strong, and so is the character’s image. [The character is strong too]

    A blunt person, however, has a warm heart.”

    From my POV, M does say many strange phrases (ie: “A man holding a purse is odd” or along those lines) but often apologizes for it. The “blunt person” part may be true after all. It’s not entirely the abuse. M always says “Sorry u(_-_)u” for an awkward phrase. Those who receive scathing words are usually those who dedicate their time and their actions to being negative to others. Take politicians for example.

    So far, she hasn’t said anything personal or political, and often praises/thanks others, commenting that she is “healed by gentle words”.

     

    For those who witnessed the abuse was quite supportive, and M thanked them.

    Doggie Thoughts

    I’ve seen this before, the belittlement of someone being “not popular enough”. An actor could retire for not receiving enough roles, let alone main roles,  as it is a demanding, competitive, and wide industry, and someone could leave a comment such as “I don’t know you, so good for you” or “Great”.

    For Lady M personally, it is extreme ignorance. There can be more said, but that is all.

    To quote www.nyfa.edu: “you need to survive physically and mentally.”

    Also, do not quit. After so many years, Lady M has not quit. Don’t think of yourself as useless and don’t let anyone else say so. And if you’re wrong, be humble and reflect on the mistake/words.
