Anime Vice News

Vice TV: MJ is in my Nintendo!

And he won't stop dancing!

  
  Manga Mad, the Documentary: Here is a nice documentary about manga, anime, Japan, and other things people like me dance to. If you got some free time in your life, then give it a shot because you can find out interesting facts like anime is made in Japan, and that 2D girls are better than 3D ones. 

  
  Michael Jackson Takes Over Nintendo: What is the best way to remember Michael Jackson? Is it through his music, or his awesome house? No, through his adventures within the wonderful world of Nintendo, this is how he would like to be remembered. 

  
   
Uninstall Sounds Good ALWAYS: I swear, I never heard a bad version of Bokurano's opening song "Uninstall", it's like ear crack. Here the scream boy and maid girl(?) play it with acoustic guitar and violin; bravo!  
 
  
  Super Robot Wars MX JAM Project MAD: What you need now in your life is a super boost of super robots along with a dash of JAM Project. Here is a MAD that features the robots that are available to play in the game Super Robot Wars MX on the Playstation 2. What I enjoy about this MAD is that it shows scenes from anime not seen very often, especially over in the west.  
 
  
  Boiling Beat Takeshi is Hilarious: Pain is hilarious, there is no lie in that. Beat Takeshi is also hilarious, so when you mix the two together, there is no way this can not be the funniest thing you ever saw. Here is an old skit that features an young Beat Takeshi trying to cook food in a giant pot of boiling (wink wink) water. Things don't go as planned, and lots of pain is involved, or so we think. (Spoilers: it's fake) 
 
  
  Don't Ya Wish Sora no Woto Had This Opening: Ok, so maybe you don't care for this song, but I think it fits the series perfectly. A series like this doesn't always have to have a Jpop song for the opener, sometimes a military song for a military show is a perfect match. 
 
  
 Random Video of the Week: (Thanks Konanda!)

I watched that manga documentary a few days ago.  It was OK.  The Ninentdo/MJ video is awesome.  I seen it a few months ago.

I would like K-on Witches a lot more if it had that ED. Also, <3Mercer.
HeeroYuyon Jan. 24, 2010 at 9:08 p.m.
I'm glad that only replaced the Sora no Woto ED, the OP by Kalafina is about half the reason why I bother watching it.
 
Random Video: I always wonder where they find these absolutely retarded people...

For those who may be wondering what the random video of the week is. It's from a one hour special on CBC TV in early 2001, that was a compilation of a short segment done by Rick Mercer in This Hour Has 22 Minutes. (A satirical news program on CBC TV since 1993 that mainly focuses on Canadian politics) The reason the image quality is so terrible is because it was likely from a VCR recording or something similar.  
 
Anyone wanting more however is out of luck. (well besides the rest of that special) Shortly after the special aired Rick Mercer abandoned the segment due to it being in poor taste to continue because of the events of September 11th. He also had moved on from 22 Minutes to focus on another show called Made in Canada, a sitcom that satirized film and television production, (The Office is kind of similar to it besides the mocumentary part) which ended shortly thereafter (it lasted from 1998 to 2003) and in 2004 came to his current show The Mercer Report
  
Sorry for going on so long but Rick Mercer is a very important figure of Canadian comedy on television and seeing as Canadian humor is a fundamental aspect of Canadian culture, (laughing keeps us warm) among other things. For instance apologizing in a passive agressive tone, while providing a veiled criticism as Colin Mochrie will explain.
 
   
  
As you may tell we have a thing for satire. 
 
Anyway that's enough off-topic grandstanding for tonight. Now it's back to self-deprecation. 
 

Hello, can anybody hear me?

Who doesn't. People without a heart that's who.

@HeeroYuy: 
Rick Mercer showed you, around political rallies. ;) Also there was one other person besides the child to call Rick Mercer on his lies, after laughing at him she proceeded to answer.

Anyone else know rick mercer is gay? Just found out about it a little while ago from some random google searching. I honestly never knew he was gay.
 
Anyway, i loved that show "Talking to Americans", it was hilarious. Makes me sad that he didn't make any more. Funny though, i never liked him in anything but that special. Proably because his punch line was always like " because he was (insert never heard of before low ranking Canadian politician here)!". They always went over my head ^_^

@crusader8463: 
Ya I've known he is gay for quite some time. I remember reading something about him and a Gerald guy in a news paper like 5 years ago or so.

Ottawa is the national capital of Canada, Toronto is the capital of  the province of Ontario, you know fyi.     
 
Fixed the spelling error in Ottawa and corrected the grammar in the last bit. Also added proper capitalization.

I saw the "boiling humans for comedy" and decided to skip it. Not because I'm afraid of what I'll see, but because I think it'll ruin the perfectly hilarious image I already have in my head.

Because I'm Canadian, I can't watch Hulu videos. 
 
I didn't know Rick Mercer was gay.  I actually shook hands with him at the gay pride parade in Toronto.  I thought he was just there as as a celebrity support kinda thing. 
 
Funny story:  I then met him a second time when he was shooting a segment from his show in my town, Sudbury, Ontario with Member of Parliament, Bob Rae.  Their car had broken down and we(city workers) gave him a ride.  I never actually spoke with him, since the van was crowded and there was no way I would've been able to get a word in edge-wise.  Here's the video of him in Sudbury:
