O-New: Now Extinct Website

Posts tagged “Twitter

This is Anime and Grantland

Recently, Kriz on Baka Laureate wrote a lengthy piece questioning not just his blog, but aniblogging as we know it. He challenges himself to hone his craft, and our community to do the same. We at O-New do not know how to back down from such a challenge.

So it happens that another blog has issued a challenge. Over at The Beautiful World, Kitsune and Neko asked for our Genshiken Diaries. In other words, they would like to hear about the real world experiences that led to our involvement in modern visual culture. Perhaps one might interpret this challenge as a mere request, but again we do not accept such questioning and will respond in kind.

Seeing Seattle’s Seas

In a pitiful attempt to introduce new scheduled posts à la Musical Mondays, it’s time to pitifully attempt to schedule new introduction posts with a new tag: Vendredis de Vacances! Which means ‘Fridays of Vacation’ in French, which I had to make in french to keep its alliterative qualities, for no weekday begins with a ‘V’. Anyhow, these posts will have me talk about my ~marvelous adventures~ in being an overbearing first-world snob and wasting money on frivolous tours.

So. Yep. Seattle. Again.

It’s a vacation post. Expect pretty pictures. Prepare for letdown. (HINT: The link in the above paragraph actually contains PRETTY PICTURES!!) Death of my life, it’s my character to only take ugly pictures

The Aniblog Tourney, or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Admit That O-New Sucks

Well.

As we enter into the month of May, it’s now been two weeks since our round against Shameful Otaku Secret, and Round 2 has officially started! I put an exclamation mark there, but it’s not an exclamation mark of excitement; it’s an exclamation mark of HATRED. And DISGUST. And O-NEW.

So, in fact, the word is ‘unwell’, not ‘well’.

Unwell.

How to Fix the Creepy Cartoon Controlling Program

The Creepy Cartoon Controlling Program, also known as the Crazy Changing Comics Player, and shortened to ‘CCCP‘, is the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Социалисти́ческих Респу́блик. The Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Социалисти́ческих Респу́блик is in charge of playing crazy changing comics, as well as controlling creepy cartoons. Sometimes, the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Социалисти́ческих Респу́блик does not work, whether it is because they are on strike, they are on their lunch break, it is a national holiday, or the Социалисти́ческих Респу́блик has been nuked by the Соединенные Штаты Америки.

Obviously, this is a great hindrance to those who wish to watch creepy cartoons or crazy changing comics.

Having run into this problem in the past, I am experienced with the art of making the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Социалисти́ческих Респу́блик work. Unfortunately, I forgot how exactly I made the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Социалисти́ческих Респу́блик work, and the methods by which I have made the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Социалисти́ческих Респу́блик work are not recorded anywhere.

So, here, I shall teach you how to make the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Социалисти́ческих Респу́блик work.

This problem where the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Социалисти́ческих Респу́блик does not work is characterized by six things when you attempt to open a Matryoshka doll:

  1. A error message which pops up that says something about a ‘D3DERR_NOTAVAILBLE’;
  2. A second error message which pops up that says something about a ‘D3DERR_NOTAVAILBLE’;
  3. Audio which works;
  4. Subtitles which work;
  5. Video which doesn’t work because it is upside down;
  6. Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Социалисти́ческих Респу́блик which does not work.

The solution is complicated, and requires many steps. I shall provide you the instructions in a list below.

Merry Christmas: Twelve Days of Comments

Y’know, I never understood why people used colons in post titles. I was originally going to make something punny around ‘comment’ and ‘christmas’ having the same first letter, but I guess my brain blanked out so I had to write a boring coloned title instead. You can call me Colonel Title if you want.

This is a Christmas post because, at the date of this post being published, it is Christmas in London, Portugal, and Morocco – the only countries which matter.

BUT TO EVERYBODY WEST OF EUROPE, IT IS NOT CHRISTMAS YET

You have NO IDEA HOW MANY TIMES

I HAVE SAID TO PEOPLE

THAT IT IS NOT CHRISTMAS YET

…Except, now it is.

Winter solstice is over. Autumn is over.

It is now Winter.

Merry Christmas, everybody.
