VF5SS's blog

Like many 20-somethings on the internet, I had a podcast. The genesis for The Veef Show was the encouragement I'd gotten for doing solo episodes of Destroy All Podcasts DX. With its upredictiable schedule, stream of consciousness discussions, and esoteric humor, this podcast serves as a digial mirror for my ecclectic interests. If I had to say anything about the show as a whole, it would be that I only sound informed because I listen to people smarter than I am.

Possible Early Transformers the Movie Art Print

Recently, Adrian Lozano (@giantrobo) of the Macross Speaker Podcast kindly sent me this vintage Transformers art print he found in Japan. As of this article, I have not been able to determine if this artwork was ever used on an official Transformers product. While the scene depicited is similar to what was used on several home video releases of the Transformers cartoon, it does not match any I have come across. In an effort to find out the history of this art, I am going to take a closer look at the details of this piece, as well as share a full scan of art for personal use. Please credit this article if you do decide to use the artwork.

I team up with Carl of Ogiue Maniax to discuss the recent anime, Aquarion Logos! The third entry in the series, Aquarion Logos is an ecclectic mix of characters and ideas in where our heroes battle against the literal corruption of words as kanji are transformed into powerful reality-affecting monsters. This is all caused by darts.

ArshadAA and I do a spoiler-riffic discussion of the 1985 anime, Blue Comet SPT Layzner. Directed by Ryosuke Takahashi, this series if a little bit Gundam, a little bit Fist of the North Star, and a whole lot of '80s.
