Act 3 is OUT!!! All will be available until July 20, then you will have to wait for iTunes download or the DVD. I am waiting for the DVD, but go watch it while it’s free! xD

If you fancy some singing… head over here.

Act Two of the Joss Whedon web-series was out today, and I love it!!! I LOVE Neil Patrick Harris!!! If you haven’t seen it yet, you better head over there and watch it. Act Three will be out on July 19th, but I’m pretty sure it will be hard  to watch in the first hours of the day just like it was to watch today’s episode.

Fangirl me thinks this is worth buying when it’s out… just for captions and extras. You know you want to have subs and caption for it so you can sing along to it… you know you want it~~~

Not entirely sure what the name means, Google Translate shows it as One Possible!, but I’m more inclined to say that Continue Reading…

Eigo de Asobo (in its original 1990 title display 英語であそぼ, or in hiragana えいごであそぼ), meaning… I think, Play in English or Let’s Play in English. Well, I actually didn’t know what the heck ASOBO meant, lol… but I looked it up. (answer here, if you’re interested in use and phrases), is another NHK show I remember catching a glimpse of. I actually went through my video archive on VCR tapes, and I had recorded some of the show during its 1998-2001 period.
