That Which You Most Need...

That which you most need will be found where you least want to look.

The Mysterious Floating Orb

Weird Al always got some wonderful whacky wizardry a cooking!

The New IMDB

I don't like it.

A while ago they had a poll asking for user feedback. I considered adding my two cents, but skimming the much more in-depth comments other users had left I was joyous to see that pretty much the entire community shared my views; that the new layout was terrible. That the two-column cast list with extra spacing and circular actor images in particular was difficult to get an overview of compared to the proper single-column one of old, and that it was the same with so much else on the page; barely a detail there that wasn't a step backward in terms of usability.

And today, low and behold, they've moved over to this new layout.

It's not better.

It's not fixed.

They didn't listen to their users at all.

It's not a huge change mind you. Apart from all the extra and highly unnecessary new spacing it still seems similar to how it's always been, but that spacing's so unnecessary. The cast list in particular is the exact same cast list I and so many others had no love for during the beta.

I respect IMDB so much less for going through with this despite the heavy critique (read: helpful feedback) they were given.

Rotten Tomatoes? Maybe it's finally time...

Social Space

Social Space - READ FOR FREE!

I helped proofread/give feedback on this thing a while back, and just got a mention there so of course I gotta return the favor. :) Go read it! It's great.

1000 Episodes Of Detective Conan!

I posted about the 800 mark a few years back, and here we are now! At a point no other anime no other internationally notable anime has previously surpassed. The thousandth episode. And not just that many, but all with a level of detail and intrigue you'd expect of a mainstream detective fiction movie.

The DragonBall realm may still have more episodes total, but not in one conducive segment. Not like this.

This show has now been running for over 25 years straight. All canon.

I haven't made it much further now than I had in my earlier attempts on catching up with the anime, but I did make it a bit further with the manga. I bought a whole set. The first 53 books or so. All that were published in Sweden. It's nowhere near the full thing still but... we're getting there. I'm getting there. Some day.

There's no rush yet; hopefully it'll keep on going for a long long time.

I try to imagine what it'd be like to be the author behind this too. To know how massive a legacy you've left behind already, and are continually building upon. Most likely that's not something you want to think about though, less the pressure amounts and the legacy unfortunately comes to a halt. It could happen any day, but for now rejoice, for the thousandth is upon us and it gongs tough.

Hurrah. Also.
