Re: Prominance of Beta in Anime Tape Trading

Betamax is probably the rarest format for anime to me, even more than LaserDisc. And I've even seen anime on a reel-to-reel machine. It was an old episode of Speed Racer on 35mm film. I had no idea how the thing escaped a tv station.

Re: 1990s Corn Pone Flicks parody subtitle in Blu-Ray HD

There is some comedy gold in these two subs. I enjoyed them thoroughly. But did you timed this to coincide with the announcement of a new Grendizer film?

Re: The 1976 New York Star Trek Convention aka DisasterCon

Just a while ago someone reached out to me and said that his/her best friend created the first sectional, live size Enterprise bridge set and took it around to all the first conventions.

That's a really deep dive on a long-ago convention! Must have been difficult researching a lot of that material.

The 1976 New York Star Trek Convention aka DisasterCon

Can anyone please take a look of a draft I've been writing for r/hobbydrama? It is about the disastrous 1976 Star Trek con in New York.

It's frustrating, but thankfully they seem to be a thing of the past. Have I told you how weird Google Blogspot can be? A friend of mine has his b...

Re: An index of prominent figures in the early anime fandom?
