Squadcast Episode 19: It's a Quake! Con!

Gia, Dawn, and Naomi gossip about CNN, terrible Dragonball: Evolution music videos, Astro Boy, and more!

Dawn, Naomi, and I got together via Skype and chit-chatted about the latest topics, including that really bad Dragonball: Evolution music video. We also chatted about our expectations for Ponyo, and comparisons of Hayao Miyazaki to Walt Disney. Hey, did you know that Walt Disney was a fanfic writer, btw?
 
We also talked a lot about the upcoming Astro Boy film, with comparisons to the original manga and Naoki Urasawa's modern adult take, Pluto, as well as plenty more gossip about everything else that's been going on lately.
 
Intro song: The Ponyo theme
Outro song: The tail end of Everlasting Love, from Katamari Damacy. <3
