This week’s anime release list is up, courtesy of Mightyblue. This week is of particular interest because it sees the first volume of Welcome to the N.H.K. Vol. 1, which I will be picking up despite its indescribably horrible (and completely unrepresentative of the contents) cover. Man, between this and The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, it’s almost as though I like anime. Consider these the exceptions to the rule.
Funny story time — toastyfrog.com will soon be a working domain again, rather than simply a redirect. People have wondered why I abanoned the URL by which most people know this site, and my standard answer — because I’m sick of people referring to me as “toastyfrog,” or “tfrog,” or “the frog,” or whatever — was actually only partly true. I mean, yes, I do think of you as a slack-jawed moron who wallows in human excrement as a hobby if you call me by the name of my site, but the real truth is that I switched webhosts a while back and couldn’t update the nameserver info for toastyfrog.com to correspond to the new location. My domain registration login info vanished, and the Yahoo! email address with which I had last updated the domain back in 2001 had expired, leaving me no way to update nameservers. (Yes, there are other recourses, but none of them would work for me, either. It’s hilarious, in a very stupid way.) Yesterday the toastyfrog.com domain actually expired, which prompted me to make one final attempt to try to access the old email address. Turns out it had finally been inactive for so long that I was able to re-register it… meaning that at any point, anyone could have come along and hijacked the domain name simply by registering the address before I could. I guess you guys missed your chance.
Anyway, it may be a few days or a few months, but this means you can set your bookmarks back to toastyfrog.com again, although I will still think of the site as GameSpite. Just don’t call me toastyfrog (or t-frog, or etc.)… unless, of course, you actually are a sub-retard who eats his own filth and don’t care who knows it.
