    Mine is just the name of a rock. Granted it is a very important rock in the history of humanity but still.

    ... earth?

    Not the whole rock. Just one specific type.

    I think the real meaning for my name is something like "of God" or "in the form of God" or something all up in God's butt like that. I guess the Welsh do be loving them some of the Christian God.

    Which raises some more questions because as far as I am aware my dad's side of the family is primarily Irish? Or Irish adjacent. I personally think we came out of a stump somewhere in Tennessee like a dour, angry, dirt farming Lorax.

    wales and ireland are a stones throw from each other I bet some seafaring welsh whatsit got all up in your ancestor's business at some point

    No one on my family has ever boned down how dare you

    I am skeptical on this point but I have no concrete evidence, you've bested me this time I suppose

    my last name refers to saving William the conquerer from dying

    its weirdly specific

    It's just a shame they didn't wait to save him until after the conquest, Mr. Drowningbastard.

    Whats the deal with evil toy monkey with symbals, is there some movie besides Merlins Shop of Mystical Wonder that has an evil toy monkey with symbals, is it just that movie and the cover of Skeleton Crew, I feel like evil toy monkey with symbals is very prominent in spooky imagery for some reason

    My last name means, "from food town" so, could be worse. Actually going back most of my ancestral surnames are pretty generic, "woods person", "from pond town", "archer", &c.

    I feel like lots of scary haunted house movies use them in the kids’ room for spooky “toys acting on their own” scares

    But also it is very prominently on the cover of monkey shines

    In that new wonder woman movie they say monkeys paw a lot referencing that old story with the monkeys paw and Wonder Woman makes the same wish as the bereaved parents in the monkey paw story for a dead loved one to come back and in the story it's like a shambling rotting corpse but in the Wonder Woman movie it's just like it works her dead loved one is back it seems curious to reference the monkey paw story and recreate a bit from the monkey paw story but not do the thing from the monkey paw story

    Clerics hate this one simple trick to marrying your cousin!

    My middle name, however, is great and is apparently a portmanteau of the medieval words for shield and wolf.

    Great Gundam Project and Austin Walker, in case anyone else was confused like I was.

    I would like him to stay on permanently, but if they get to the end of Turn A and he basically slams the eject button as they head into a solid year and a half of fuckin SEED and an SD kids show it would be very funny.

    SAC 2nd Gig has always been one of those shows I would think to myself, I should watch that. I liked the first one. Just never got around to it.
    I feel vindicated in my procrastination.

    The overarching plot is not very good and they drop the standalone episodes, which are laser targeted to the GGP crew's sensibilities as one shot episodes about broody cops

    The first half is still mostly ok imo.

    Once the name Kuze starts flying around it goes downhill quick.

    Oh man, I totally forgot that Big O was gonna be the Turn A backup show

    I am giddy to hear Austin talk about Big O

    EDIT: The SAC discussion reminds me that I felt very vindicated to hear Austin talk positively about GitS Arise. Back when it first came out and I was reviewing it (and enjoying it) for my anime podcast, it felt like a bunch of people were dismissing it out of hand.

    There are a few but mostly front loaded, and not as energized as the first season

    Yeah, I still had a good time with 2nd Gig overall,and if you enjoyed the first season there's probably enough there for you to like, but it's overall not as good (from my memory at least, I haven't actually sat down and watched through either season in years!)

    2nd Gig doesn’t exactly do away with the one-shot eps, it just zooms in on smaller goings-on amidst the larger story.

    Paz has an episode that is noir as hell and I loved it.
