My Toonami Retrospective

Man, I had a feeling it was gonna turn 20 a few years ago; and seeing that people are just celebrating it, I've decided to describe my own experiences with this epic anime block. This could be a long entry, so prepare yourselves... It all started when I was 10; it was during the summer vacation. Believe it or not, it all began when I kept hearing that ThunderCats was airing. It was actually on the Preview channel; the one that used to show all those scrolling TV listings. Anyway, seeing how g

My 4Kids Retrospective

I know what you are all thinking as I write this entry, and yes, I agree about 75% that 4Kids is the king of failure when it comes to anime dubbing. You're all pretty much right, they had their sour reputation of making poor business practices, laying off talented individuals and transforming the FoxBox into an abomination, and later the CW. But starting the 25%, I didn't mind the editing, though, as I appreciated there was no hoarse language, alcoholism, or brief nudity. I liked the idea since

Why GP Legend was REALLY canceled!

Ever since I saw a video by TASproductions on his retrospective about the FoxBox/4Kids.TV, I had decided to make this blog post. We all know that GP Legend (both the anime and the GBA game) was released upon US shores at the same time on September 2004. It premiered on the FoxBox and to me, it was almost an instant hit. I was playing F-Zero GX during the summer of that year, and when I first heard about it as my younger siblings pointed it out on TV, it was only natural I decided to give it a ga

Was F-Zero made for the wrong demographic?

I stuck w/ the series via the Franchise Report that was made a couple years ago by Freelance Nintendo, then I was watching the first episode of the anime. When suddenly, there was a question that just came to me like a slap in the face. I came to thinking... Was F-Zero made for the wrong demographic? Here's the thing: During the Franchise Report concerning the future of F-Zero, people would see how sales have decreased overtime in the franchise. From the original, to X, Max. Velocity, and e

My Own Guilty Couples

Ever have one of those couples/characters that seem like...guilty pleasures? I'm not really talking as in sexual themes, but mostly because of how dark, though pleasant, these themes can be! Sometimes...doing bad does feel good in a sense. Especially when it comes to fiction. So, here are some of my pairings that seem like guilty couples. You might recognize the F-Zero ones. 1. Cecil Harvey and Dragon Rose (FFIV) I've made a fanfic known as Trials of a King several years back, and it h

Couples in my Fanfics

This idea was actually inspired by Fanfictiondreamer. As she does despise shipping, when fans only look at one official pairing and defend it with their lives, even if someone would disagree with them as like a sin to their ship. Heck, there's even this trope, Die for your Ship, for a reason; a lot of them are like immature and pick the most awkward couples ever, even when involving multiple universes. Even worse still, some people would go as far and as sick as a three-way relationship or harem

My Fantastical Memoir

This is going to be an interesting, though massive, project. Because this is a memoir, and as it defines, it's a personal account that highlights someone's personal experience and/or special sources. For this, I'm gonna try and summarize each of those zany ideas I developed over the years. Fanfictiondreamer has pretty much done this in the Ultimate Story series, but mine's more...complicated, because I'm spanning from many years and different resources, and this is going to be a very long mess.

How My Fanfics/Artwork Come to Be

I was watching James Cameron's Avatar a long time ago, and something seemed to be bothering me whenever I see it. I noticed that some of the things I love don't really leave quite an impact like so many other things do; why was this the case? With Avatar, it inspired me with my own screenname, TheIkranRider, but while it's one of my all-time favorite movies, how come it never drove me for any ideas? I pondered about this, and then I remembered something from TV Tropes, Fanfic Fuel. Basicall

Top 10 F-Zero GP Legend Strengths

Alright, if you hadn't seen its 10 Flaws, here it is. However, I don't see GP Legend/Climax as a lost cause like so many consumers think. I will try and list 10 positives to hopefully cancel them out, and maybe help GP Legend get a second shot for airing the American Dubs of the anime. So here goes: 1. Cool Canon Foreigners As the name would imply on TVTropes, they're characters that're introduced to a work that is far from the norm of the actual series, such as a spinoff or expanding a univ

Top 10 F-Zero GP Legend Flaws

Now, now, don't get me wrong, I love F-Zero GP Legend, ever since I was a late teenager. It has actually helped me thru high school during junior year, especially when the large state standardized test was approaching toward March; I still have some fond memories with both the English Dubs as well as the GBA game of the same name. However, nothing's perfect, and as I was creating my F-Zero fics back in the day, there were quite some unpleasantries that needed to be pointed out. So, here are

Top 10 Scariest, Nostalgic Memories

Just in time for Halloween, and just inspired by Fawful's Minion's own list, I had decided to do the same that showcases my own childhood fears. I was always curious on who someone else's fears are including Joshscorcher's and Watcher's. So here, I'm going to list my very own. Unlike the previous 3 these memories are bound to be so much more different from them, and even some of these memories I still find either unsettling or nostalgic. My cutoff date was when I turned 18, as it's the day I'm c

Time for the Nostalgia Goggles

I began to realize something once I had reached the big 3-0. And this has been getting broader ever since. There was something that actually happened to me. Mentally I mean. And I have already explained this to my former friend, Fanfictiondreamer. And while E3 was coming to a close, I thought I would get this out of the way to let everyone else know of my...sudden mindset. They say that 30 years is usually debated as the middle ages, but I don't believe it, as I only count 50 years to be as

What should be done next?

Alright, all my Starfox content has been released here; I don't have anymore material on the matter. But I don't think it'd be wise to quit here now. Since FFD had done a crapload of fanfics here, even though some aren't Starfox-centric, a lot of her works here are like sci-fi works. So, maybe I'll do the same thing here..? If so, I have several things to offer. I'd been busy on YouTube, so that's why I hadn't been showing up here lately. If I have time, maybe I'll start releasing some of my sci

Creating Couple Categories to the LOTM wiki

Alright, my rival, FFD has added a Couple Category for Fox and Misty, a couple introduced in the Ultimate Story series. So, I decided to add more o my own Couple Categories there.

Starfox content on YouTube

Alright, I shows you Jim's material, and here's some stuff from another YouTuber, one I don't follow very much. So, here are some things from him: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s8Y56mPXT60 - Reviewed Starfox https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TK_46mywGOA - Redo-Reviewed Starfox 64 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=77FgPvaytDU - My 10 Personal Satrfox Planets https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uigF92jkQ3Q - Starfox Assault https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9YA84XTmTRo - What he t

The Great Clement's Starfox LPs

Hey guys, I figured I'd post a little something from one of my all-time favorite YouTubers, the Great Clement. So, here's the LP he has done for the original Starfox game; he's a pro and hysterical while doing it! And here's one he made for Starfox 64, which was several years prior to this; again, he's a pro and he's just hilarious, especially when he does a special meme and a hysterical joke about Solar's temp! You'll see. Enjoy!

What would be Star Fox's next existential threat?

Star Fox Assault's Aparoids were an interesting addition to the franchise, since they were something new and unique. Even though the problem in Adventures was pretty large scale, the Aparoids weren't focused on destruction. Instead, it was spreading across the galaxy if not the universe. The Aparoid Queen's goal seemed to be spread as far as possible, and create something new. Based on the details about the Aparoids, I think that their presence was influenced by a genre of horror known as "

Introduction to Lylat Crisis

Hello guys. As many of you may know, I'm new on this website and this is my first blog here. I'm announcing that I'm working on a fan comic that takes place after Star Fox Command, but doesn't take place in the multiple endings the game provides you. Instead of Fox retiring and having Marcus or Krystal becoming Kursed, team Star Fox had lost against the Anglar Empire. Every member who are/were a part of Star Fox are either captured, missing, or presumed dead. From what I can tell you now, Fox is

The Cozy (and last) Great Fox.

I guess I can't say i've been an absentee on this forum for a bit, looks like it generally stayed the same in general population, although for better or for worse is always a question. With a few new faces (and an old one, to my knowledge), merely judging, it's still quite the cozy home. "Welcome to those new, and those returning to the last known Great Fox." 1. Debating on adding back my old characters again, although in recent months, I actually haven't used them in a while for anything.

How time flies

It's been quite a long time since I've used the blogs here. Let's see how much has changed.   My relationship is steady, I'm happy. I was promoted to Department Manager of the Pickup department about two years ago now. In April/May of that year, I found out that my store was going to be getting Online Grocery Pickup, and only one other store in the area had it at the time. We got two transfers in around that time, first was my new Assistant Manager (ASM), and then they hired a second D

The New SF-O, from a (mostly) absentee.

Tending to post these whenever something takes me away from the site for a while, namely the job I have, and schoolwork to follow in college keeps me busy, albeit now having fun filing taxes soon to come, and being able to shortly use it to fund a new rig (Using a Steam Machine to run Windows 10 is certainly something). 1. Good lord, I haven't been on in forever. April -somethingwasit-? I've always been on the Discord Channel (I now just skim over it, muting the certain channels not related t

Software Feature: Vimperator - Firefox Extension

last update: 12/2017 When keyboard browsing try Vimperator:                     Note: Other software to consider include - Vim Vixen, Pentadactyl, Vimium, or vimb. Vimperator's default key bindings and commands are inspired by Vim - a modal text editor which strives for efficient hand movement. Though the extension's vim-likeness appeals to hardcore vim users, it's also a strong option available to any general user looking for coherent, extensive mouse-less or less-mouse web-brows
