New free North American streaming app: Retro Crush

So Retro Crush just recently launched their Beta version of their app: http://retrocrush.tv It's mostly the same offerings they have on Asian Crush & Midnight Pulp, but in one convenient place. A word of warning, though--not every title they got streaming rights to is in HD/high quality, so some of ...

Re: What ettiquette was there in the days of Usenet?

Yeah, idk if there was that much of a difference in "etiquette", so much as there were some groups where people just got along better? Definitely demographics. I know something I struggled with looking back was that I original saw Usenet as being sort of like a Twitter or Reddit of the early 90s, b...

Re: What ettiquette was there in the days of Usenet?

Yeah, idk if there was that much of a difference in "etiquette", so much as there were some groups where people just got along better? There was still plenty of jerks online, I remember plenty of drama in some mailing lists I was on back in the day. I think that now that online socializing is way mo...

Re: The Anime Nostalgia Podcast & Blog

It comes up in discussions sometimes, but I haven't done a dedicated episode to that topic...I wouldn't mind doing one, if I had the right person to discuss it with. There's definitely been a shift in popular visual style trends, for the most part. While there's no singular "anime style" and many sh...

Re: Current Gainax President arrested

Yeah...honestly, at this point it wouldn't surprise me if Gainax folded or got sold to another company/studio & merged/disappeared in the next 5-10 years, the way things are going. Most of the truly talented people left ages ago when they could.

Re: The Anime Nostalgia Podcast & Blog

Hmm...that's an interesting idea, tho not really sure what I'd do with a topic like that, unless I could find someone who was vending back in the day to talk to. Me just recounting things I used to purchase at cons would probably be boring :lol:

Re: The Anime Nostalgia Podcast & Blog

Thanks! Yeah you never know what eventually trickles out into online auctions...I remember a few years back, someone dumped a whole bunch of cels from the unmade American Sailor Moon cartoon (what most people refer to as Saban Moon lol). Someone had to have been holding onto those for AGES! Nice! Th...
