Volunteer some time to your animal shelter?

Nothing toku related this time guys. Just plugging in a cause that I believe in / lay a guilt trip.

Most of you don't know this, but recently I've started volunteering at the local animal shelter. At our city, this is especially important because the city's really poorly managed and a few years ago the shelter was taken over by mostly volunteers, since the city couldn't find the money to fund it anymore.

And volunteering is really important for animal support, especially in the case of dogs.

The dogs are kept in these two part cages that can be separated by a guillotine. Since a lot of these dogs are off the street, they don't quite get the concept that they poop/pee on one side and sleep/eat on the other. It can get really messy sometimes.

What I do is called canine support. I go in for two hours a week and basically just walk as many dogs as I can. Typically dogs go for a walk for 20 minutes.

Now here's the guilt trip. Imagine going to a job where your 15 minute break was the only time you were let outside of your cubicle (also you get a private toilet, but it's in your cubicle, and the toilet doesn't flush). Plus you sleep in your cubicle.

That 15 minutes outside would be pretty sweet right?

If more people volunteer, more dogs can go outside and get some exercise. It's always good to get more sunlight and exercise.

So go down to your local shelter and help out. They take old cloth for beddings and food like peanut butter or whatever too. You might make a furry friend along the way.

Dan Tomyuki passes away

Saw on tumblr that voice actor and live actor for the terrifying Isaka Shinkurou, Dan Tomoyuki, has passed away at 50.

Looks like he died at home from a heart attack.

Sad news since he was really good at his job.

So what tumblrs do you guys have?

Piracy overstated?


It may sound weird coming from me, but overall I'm not a big fan of piracy. If I want to see a movie, it's pretty easy to just pay a small fee and get an HD stream through legal means. If I want music, Amazon's got a bunch of MP3 downloads available. If I want comics, I go to comixology and read them digitally (no more storing comics, yay!) My point is, there's plenty of options if you want to support a favorite artist.

I always feel a bit skeptical about studies like this. At this point, I can see how numbers and facts can be distorted in any number of ways to support any claim. There's plenty of "facts" on the Internet, but it's pretty hard to tell which ones are reliable, and I certainly am not going to verify everything that I look up.

I guess my point is that I hope this article is true and that the multiple ways of accessing media legitimately encourages people to do the right thing.

Toku and Japanese media is kind of weird in that the fandom is so small, I don't think that even if the fansubbers went away, there'd be a market for legitimate DVDs/Blu-rays.
