Naruto

If you like Manga and Anime, you probably haven’t missed hearing about Naruto, the Manga was first published in -97 and the Anime hit the screens in 2002. Personally I’ve been watching it since 2003.

It’s still a great anime, and never ceases to entertain, although as with any anime following a manga, the filler episodes are totally rubbish. But they are only a small percentage of the episodes.

Naruto Uzumaki is a young boy who has the Nine-Tailed Demon Fox sealed within him, and is struggling to keep it’s massive rage and power tucked inside.

As with a lot of other popular anime it’s main focus is on friendship and working for the better of the team. It’s got some great character development even after  390+ episodes.

The story is about a young ninja trainee, Naruto, who when as a baby had a powerful deamon sealed inside him to protect the village from destruction. This would lead to him having a uncontrollable rage inside him and to become alienated by everyone in the village.

Over the years he turns out to have something that no other ninja can match, the power of blind friendship, later on the series takes a break (after 220 episodes) to start with Naruto Shippuden, where Naruto and his friends are a bit older and the series turns a bit more adult and dark, probably to accomodate that the original viewers have grown up a little (although I’m just as childish as before)

You can watch Naruto Shippuden Online Thursdays 12:00pm BST on Cruchyroll

Topblogging that’s big business!?


Blogganded i Sverige är Big Business, så nu har vi inte bara C-kändisar från dokusåpor utan bloggare också.

Nog för att Aftonbladet inte är känt för sin topp journalistik men hur lågt kan man sjunka?

Bryr sig verkligen en vettig människa i Sverige om dessa två tragiska småtjejers bloggkrig?

Jag menar den där Kisses blogg verkar ju vara en av de mest ointressanta bloggar jag någonsin sett (tror till och med att min blogg är mer intressant): http://www.kissies.se/?p=9359

Och vem är denna Jackie Ferm? http://jackieferm.nu/

Äh, jag tror jag gjorde ett smart drag, när jag flyttade ifrån Sverige.

Sunday Comic strip

I’ve been reading Sinfest on and off for years now, it’s a great comic about existentialism and religion (not really taking any of it serious)

Over the last decade Tatsuya Ishida has developed a line of characters like; Seymour (personification of Christian Fundamentalists) and Li’l Evil ( big fan of the Devil), featuring Buddah, God and the Devil as well in a battle of good vs. evil

His views on the world does come though quite often to: Imperialism

The best thing is there is literally one strip per day since 2000, so you’ll always have something fresh.

Folk Friday

Friday and I’m bored of being a shut in

So with the help of the timeout website I found a little gig venue at the Slaughtered Lamb in Clerkenwell where the Belgium folk music band Isbells was playing

They had great harmonics, magical music and a lot of fun instruments like Ukuleles, Banjos, multitude of percussions and they even played the saw!

Although we missed the preband: Hannah Peel that seemed quite fun

Folk musiks Fredag

Fredag och Lappsjuka

Så jag kollade upp lite last minute gig här i Islington, och hittade en liten trevlig folk musik kväll på the Slaughtered Lamb i Clerkenwell där en Blelgisk grupp som hette Isbells spelade.

De hade bra harmonisk musik, med en massa instrument, det var en Ukulele, Banjo, en massa slagverk och de spelade till och med på en såg.

Vi missade dock förbandet Hannah Peel som verkade ganska kul.
