Today's Manga: Short-Tempered Melancholic and Kekkaishi 14. I was pretty sure Grenadier 7 was out by this time, but I didn't find it. I don't think I even found a copy of 6. I also bought South Park season 11 and the extended version of Superhero Movie. What? I like those movies... sort of. I also got a special bonus that Curt pointed out: the first season of Freakazoid on DVD. Awesome.

I got plenty of new games, though. Curt had coupons for 25% off used Nintendo system games, so I got Prince of Persia: Rival Swords, Crash of the Titans for the Wii, and New Super Mario Bros. I also grabbed Death by Degrees off the $10 rack at Target. I need a much better controller if I'm ever going to get anywhere in that game. I used up most of my health recovery items fighting the mini-boss with the machine guns in the freezer (he just kept shooting whenever I tried to approach him, leaving me unable to dodge, and either my controller or my thumbs don't seem to respond to the quick flicks needed for evasive actions), only to have to fight him AGAIN in a knife-lined cage, still firing those guns, except that now I CAN'T dodge, nor can I hide behind the frozen meat. I can sure get knocked back into those knives, though. I'm getting used to the controls of Rival Swords and enjoying it so far - maybe I'll beat it this time, although the only thing that hurt last time was getting through a difficult trap-laden corridor, only to discover that it was actually the right way to go, and the path that looked like the right way led to the extra health. Crash is a pretty standard platformer that lets you control enemies, but the Wii version lets you grab the "Mojo" (experience) by pointing the remote at it instead of having to touch it. Pretty convenient.

Yes, I'm THAT Nidoking. Sometimes I write fanfiction... often I waste all my time playing video games and watching anime. But it's not a waste if I enjoy it, right? I can quote from a movie, video game, anime series, or British comedy apropos of just about any situation, and one of my main goals in life is to entertain people. (The other big one is amassing as much anime and manga as I can... see below for a progress report.) That's me in a nutshell. ("Help! I'm trapped in a nutshell! What a bloody great nutshell this is!")
