First in my sporadic series of anime reviews, this was a vent of frustration with the show Air. Many sources online put it in line with greats such as Chobits, while I found it just plain tedious, aimless and basically any other negative property you could think of. Head inside for the full disclosure.
Just because I couldn't believe anyone didn't know about the Razzies (and other editors talked about the Ignobles and such in the full magazine), here is my short summary and some of the more ridiculous examples of winner-losers I could research.
Because of my personal regard for electronic music (especially that of Renard Queenston a.k.a. Lapfox), I took the opportunity to summarize the basics of electronic music and especially chiptunes. Very much truncated compared to the Wikipedia article, but I hope an easier read.
One of my few technological contributions, this was a short introduction into agile methods, especially the titular Pair Programming from the branch of Extreme Programming (XP). More curious than educational, but very much fitting for the intended readership of computer science students.
A discussion of the trend of remaking old intellectual properties instead of creating new ones. Not a harsh criticism of the practice, but hopefully it becomes clear that many people rightly believe this trend to display an annoying amound of creative stagnation, and will be remembered as an idea as ridiculous as the trend of chronic serials of the late 90s.
As games are one of my biggest hobbies, this was a real treat for me: I got to discuss balancing in all media of games, but mainly focusing on video games. With Team Fortress 2 being as popular as it is, it was clear it would get an honorary mention somewhere.
This article started as I believe some XKCD comics do - with the graph as a point of origin. Surprisingly, there was no backlash in angry letters to the editor about my humerous standards of acceptable age gaps in relationships. A great read for both math enthusiasts and social "enginerds".
Most recent and the favorite show and review of the series, Spice and Wolf really is a gem amongst gems. I didn't go deep enough into the beautiful scenery, incidental music, and storyline to express my love of this show. Especially as I referenced it in the review of Time of Eve, this article was a definite must.
