Something of interest–Cat Shit One Animated Series Trailer

Saturday, 28 March, 2009

I am not up on manga.  It pains me to say that, as I enjoy the media form immensely.  Apparently there was a manga released in the US entitled Apocalypse Meow.  It’s a story based during the Vietnam war, but, the human characters are replaced with cute, fluffy animals.

The manga started it’s life in Japan with the title Cat Shit One–which I think is an infinitely better title.  Better, say, than the bad movie-title knockoff it received when translated.  Anyway, it appears that Cat Shit One is going to be made into a computer generated animated series.

What does this have to do with anything, you ask?  Well, the trailer is up on YouTube and I just have to share it.  It is that crazy and amazing (cramazing?) at the same time.  I sat with my jaw well below where it should be, when I gave this the first watch.  Have a look:


Neglect

Thursday, 26 March, 2009

I haven’t meant to neglect the blog as long as I have. I did write one from Florida, but, that’s as much as I have done. I do hope to post some pictures in a blog, at some point.

Yes, that means I am home. I have been back in Plattsburgh for over a week now. The flights were great and comfortable–not to mention cheap! I would like to go back as soon as soon as I can.

Maybe for good? I am not sure…


Florida–a northerner’s view

A little blue heron

I have been here in Port Richey, Florida for about four days now.  Yes, I know I left on the fifth, but, I never actually arrived in Port Richey until after 2 AM.  Let me say that the differences are…amazing.

Right now, in Plattsburgh, it’s still Winter.  It snowed yesterday, and I am sure it was cold.  Sure, it’s Winter here in Florida, too.  That word doesn’t have the same meaning, though.

Each day has been absolutely beautiful, weather-wise.  Even now it’s sunny outdoors and 73 degrees.  I have been told that they experienced a pretty cold number of days–somewhere in the high 30s–before I came.

It’s a bit of a shock.  When I left Plattsburgh it was 27 out, and cloudy.  When I landed, it was near 60 here, and–though it was nighttime–there wasn’t a cloud in the sky.

The weather isn’t only the big change.  I mean, obviously the weather is bound to be different, being in the souther US.  The wildlife, though, is a change I have happily accepted.

I love birds, and may have mentioned so.  The wild birds here are quite the difference from the chickadees, and cardinals that I am used to seeing.  Yes, I have seen a couple cardinals, but the local birds are…well…bigger.

Just outside my Dad’s apartment is a sizable pond.  It attracts some of the most beautiful–and a couple of the most ugly–birds I have ever seen.  Since I have been here I have seen the following, and this is just in the pond.

This is very unlike anything I have seen at home, and with the local flora, has made this visit particularly rich.  It’s amazing to see animals like those, basically in one’s back yard!


Leaving this afternoon

Thursday, 5 March, 2009

I am heading out this afternoon. Going to visit my Dad and brother in Port Richey, Florida. I will post vacation blogs with some photos. I will be gone for just under two weeks, but, there should be a lot to see!
