Spike, Cowboy Bebop
If you were like me two months ago, your knowledge of anime was limited to Hayao Miyazaki films and your knowledge of manga was limited to Scott Pilgrim. Fast forward two months and skip the parts where I metaphorically drop acid and crush pills between pages and pages of comic drawings. Somewhere inside that mess, I discovered my gateway drugs to anime and manga.

This is probably scientifically impossible, but it's definitely probable. No it's not. Yes, I know it isn't possible, but that's what this segment is all about! Really though, this situation is completely possible because I spent a whole day in a situation where my blood was actually blue, as well as everyone else's. Here is my story.
The series finale of The Office aired last night (very appropriate ending) and now all I can think about are all of the funniest moments that happened throughout the series. A lot of these moments occur during the intros of the episodes. So in honor of the ending of The Office, I put together five of my favorite intros. I think you'll enjoy this (That's what she said).
Freedom of speech is a very important issue in this country. The invention of the internet made the right to speak your mind a cultural phenomenon. Social media, smartphones, and blogs allow anyone to say basically anything they want. You can complain, criticize, and be opinionated about whatever you want. But to be frank, the majority of what people have to say is either insane, inappropriate or just irrelevant.

Hi Mom! Happy Mother's Day! She's so happy every time I give her something for her other birthday of the year. But it's not her birthday, it's Mother's Day! So what is Mother's Day?

This day is undoubtedly the busiest day of the year for most restaurants, and that's no bull.

Potatoes. Oh potatoes. What a great piece of food it might be. Potatoes come in many different shapes and sizes, mostly potato. How many potatoes can a human eat in one sitting? Probably a lot. How many can I eat? Probably a lot. It's not really my favorite food, but it's still a good one. But just like anything else, there are literally infinite ways to prepare it. Since there are so many ways of preparing it, I would guess it's probably my favorite food. So what kind of prep are we talking about? I have about 4 favorite savory preps that will make the common person, you, have their mouth watering in seconds. Not mine.
On this episode: Kyle is joined by Mark Dillman to discuss and give insightful opinions about one of the biggest gaming releases of the year, BioShock Infinite.
We all know that when a movie is over the closing credits roll and that's our cue to get up and leave (unless it's a Marvel movie of course). They typically consist of a black screen with white type rolling from the bottom to the top with music playing throughout. But what about the movie's opening credits? These can be entirely more creative and can truly set the tone for the entire movie. Some films take advantage of this tactic and utilize the opening credits to create something truly amazing.
