BJ League Ready To Blow

November 28, 2007

First round tryouts have started in Chiba and Fukuoka for the BJ League. Expect some stiff competition as players push and pull for the hard spots on a team. Expect some people to swallow disappointment as the tryouts are multi-tiered.

These tryouts will consist of physical strength, individual skills and game skills. They will be testing out how far and how well you can shoot and if your accuracy is good, no one likes a random shot landing somewhere other than its target. The registration cost is ¥5,250 so if you are in the area, grab your balls and head out as you never know what might happen. Gotta love the Basketball Japan League…. wait you thought I meant something else this whole time? Get your mind out of the gutter you pervs.

Dëthkløk Fuckin’ Rocks

Most of the time Adult Swim kinda sucks. It was good when it first started, a mix of import anime and their own cartoons such as Space Ghost: Coast to Coast. But then the crap showed up: Squidbillies, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, and the like. But as of Monday I was mostly ignorant about a show called Metalocalypse and come today I can’t get enough.

Described as “Spinal Tap meets Scooby-Doo meets Norway”, Metalocalypse follows the exploits of the part-American/part-Scandinavian death metal band Dëthkløk. They enjoy a popularity level unheard of in reality, being “the twelfth largest economy on Earth.” They are so popular that their fans will do anything their songs tell them, even if it means death. Yous need watchs it dildos.
