OSMcast! The Legend of Korra: Book Two, Spirits 7-28-2014

Play

Still cartoons! Cartoons are still great!

And lo, a year has passed since we all watched the second season, or Book as the kids call it, of the Legend of Korra. But what does that MEAN. Was it worth it? Were they able to write themselves out of the hole that was the complete story arc of Book One? And by that we mean that Book One ended in a way that really didn’t need another season, so the hole we are talking is more the fact there was no hole? But can we DIG IT. Can we place our hands into the ground of The Legend of Korra: Book Two, Spirits and just DIG IT?

Short answer: Yeah pretty much, we are still doing an OSMcast all about after all.

Long answer: Once again, you can have that long answer by click on that episode, and either streaming it RIGHT NOW or download and listen at your earlier convenience. We did spend all that time talking and pontificating all over this here audio file. I’m adding more text here to make the answer longer.

TL;DR: This episode of the OSMcast is about The Legend of Korra: Book Two, Spirits. It’s a pretty cool cartoon made by Bryan Konietzko and Michael Dante DiMartino and the second series to the first book and is in general a sequel to Avatar: the Last Airbender. You can go listen to us yap on about how cool we think it is. Which it was. At times. Eh, you’ll find out!

OSMcast! The Great Muppet Caper 7-14-2014

Play

You probably watched this a bunch when you were kids, but you may discover that you never truly watched it at all! Ooooo deep.

So our last “normal” podcast about a movie reinvention of an old franchise. Therefore we decided to go back to an entirely different franchise, and talk about one of their earlier movies.

That franchise is Jim Henson’s Muppets, and that movie is 1981′s The Great Muppet caper, directed by Jim Henson and filled to the brim with muppets. Which make sense as it is a Muppets movie. With Jim Henson at the helm.

We also talk about being among wolves, shovels, knights, how to protect yourself against the mosquito menace, and even some Dragon Quest and Final Fantasy X|V: A Realm Reborn Minutes.

OSMinterview! Chii Sakurabi @ MTAC In Love

Play

Chii Sakurabi

Yes, you thought we were done with MTAC! But as it turns out, we were able to get out one last interview. This one is with Chii Sakurabi, an international J-POP singer, recording artist, and lolita fashion enthusiast from Tokyo, Japan.

We got to talk to her about her music, fashion, as well as her latest album: Moon Princess.

So, OK. We had this audio that we did with an interview with J-Pop vocalist Chii Sakurabi at this past MTAC. When we got home, our files were being all corrupted and stuff. Not so good, since Chii Sakurabi did talk to us, so we really wanted to get that audio out. BUT THEN, we figured out a way to make it work so yay here have said audio!

We want to give a gigantic thanks to both Chii Sakurabi and MTAC for the chance for the interview. And since it was more press conference style, we weren’t the only ones there asking the questions! You also heard questions from Charlie from the Chainsaw Buffet, as well as Andrew from A Man and His Pod, among others. So big shout outs to them as well.

Next time we will have a normal OSMcast for you, likely yet another one about an American movie blockbuster based of a Japanese thing.

Martin Billany aka LittleKuriboh

Martin Billany aka LittleKuriboh

Wrapping up our MTAC in Love interviews we did, here’s the one we recorded with Martin Billany! Although most people know him as LittleKuriboh, creator of Yu-Gi-Oh: The Abridged Series. We here at the OSMcast know the name as the name that Basil cannot pronounce, ever.

Thankfully, this interview is nothing about that.

It’s instead about more fun, or Billany-esque topics.

However the Chainsaw Boys do get extra shouts outs for their awesome presence at Hamacon. Hamacon of course being the con where we at the OSMcast were so busy helping make happen, that we are really lucky to have this interview to release instead of an actual episode!

But we’ll be back with an actual episode… At some point!

OSMinterview! Marianne Miller @ MTAC In Love

Marianne Miller

Wait what, you thought we were done with MTAC in Love yet? Not quite! This latest interview is with Marianne Miller, who has voiced in a several anime like Sword Art Online, Squid Girl, Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha, and a few others!

She’s also really into Dragon Age, which worked out because we are, too! We also talk about squid stuff, and tattoos, and well a whole bunch of stuff. Like poop!

It’s good stuff, so you should probably go listen. Right now. Not sure why you are still reading this text. Other than the fact that I’ve already typed it, and you are looking for catharsis. If that’s the case, I’m done. Feel relieved. Now go listen to Marianne Miller!

Not a lot to say right now otherwise, as we here at the OSMcast have a whooooole bunch of work left to do to get ready for Hamacon! Why is time still moving, we need to get these things done oh noooooo

OSMinterview! Vedetta Marie & ScatterDOTFashion @ MTAC In Love

Vedetta Marie

ScatterDOTFashion

Sometimes, you gotta spin the wheel, play the cards, hit the Greed button in an MMO and hope you come out of the dungeon with a pretty cool new thing. At this past MTAC (that MTAC In Love con you’ve been hearing so much from us about?), we took a chance. We had an interview that we seriously had no clue what was going to happen.

Thankfully, we came out of it with a pretty cool new thing! And that thing is this interview. We got the chance to sit down and chat with Vedetta Marie and ScatterDOTFashion, a cosplay and Japanese fashion due par excellance.

Now, you may think that the OSMcast is nothing but glamor, pizazz, and fashionability, but really all we know about fashion comes from Jojo’s Bizarre Adventures and Paradise Kiss. Which isn’t nearly enough keep up with these fashionista kids.

However, they are totally cool people and it ended up being a really fun talk. Would chat with again! Five stars (Out of OSM, obviously)!

OSMinterview! Samantha Inoue-Harte @ MTAC In Love

Play

The Hatmaster. Or Meister. Anime loves Meisters.

We’re not done MTAC in Lovin’ yet, folks! We had a chance to sit down several amazing people during this year MTAC, and we have only just begun releasing those interviews! But out of all of them, Samantha Inoue-Harte might be the most interesting of bunch. At the very least, she has them all beat in just sheer quantities of hats she has worn throughout the years.

We’re talking animator hats, voice over artist hats, producer hats, gore effects person hats, and more but pretty much all around delightful hats. Lately, according to MTAC, “Samantha is a Producer and Partner at Animetropolis, a boutique transmedia studio that develops and produces compelling cross-cultural creative content with partnering Japanese Anime studios. Animetropolis partnered with IDA (International Digital Artists) as production partner and lead animation unit for a Japanese/American co-produced CG-animated feature adaptation of Tailchaser’s Song, the acclaimed best-selling fantasy novel by author Tad Williams.”

She talks about that, and a whole lot more. So much more.

But what’s next week going to hold? Flamencos. Samurais. Samurai Flamenco.
