Thank goodness my computer's back at 100% ...
Anyway, I hung up and wasn't away from the phone for more than five minutes before he called me back and told they wouldn't let him buy it until Tuesday. No street date breaking at Circuit City, no way!
I'm thinking of doing some work on the comics blog later tonight, but right now, you get links.
- Keith Palmer discovers Robotech The Movie: The Untold Story, or as he puts it, The Star Wars Holiday Special of Robotech.
- Chris "Robotech_Master" Meadows gives us a well-played Vince Grant before (Sentinels) & after (Shadow Chronicles) shot and shows us how he lied to the REF about his age.
Actually, if you want to see a lot more comparison shots of the Shadow Chronicles cast of characters, I made this thing around a year ago. It might come in handy on Tuesday, when you're busy speculating about the next ROBOTECH animation after you're done watching the DVD. Of course, you'll have to mark off a couple of extra casualties while you're at it ...
- I point out this "What Robotech Character Are You?" quiz only because my girlfriend just e-mailed the link to me and told me she wound up most like Dana Sterling, of all people. Suddenly I am that much more attracted to her -- my girlfriend, I mean, not Dana. Heh. Meanwhile, I ended up with this:
You scored as Scott Bernard. Born in outer space during the Expeditionary Mission, Scott Bernard is part of the new generation of Earth's defenders. He is a pilot in the Mars Division, one of the advanced battalions trying to reclaim Earth from the Invid. He arrives on his ancestral planet as one of the only few survivors from this advance Robotech fleet. When he recovers from the shock of his disastrous landing, Scott, sets about to fulfill his mission to reach Reflex Point and join Admiral Rick Hunter's new army at all costs.
Which Robotech character are you most like?

- Well, sure ...
- For you general mecha-heads, my pal Evan Cass points me to the Live 365 radio station Super Robot Taizen, featuring a constant stream of mecha anime tunes new, old, and really old. (Ore wa Gu-ra-i-to, Gu-raito Mazinga!) I've got almost all of these songs on my computer in MP3 format, but I've still been listening to this all night, and will probably continue to 'til morning.
