New Policy On Contests!

Okay folks, I am going to say this just once. I will NO LONGER TOLERATE  complaints about how contests are judged on any of the comment sections of any post on this blog. If you feel you have a legitimate complaint then contact JR via email please. If you can not find his email address then contact me and I will forward it on.My email address (Kaldath@Heromachine.com) is rather easy to find as it is listed at the bottom of any of my blog posts just before the comment section.

I had a member of this community back when I first took the site over to run for Jeff that became a big problem when it came to contests and had to eventually Ban him from this site. He is the only person aside from Spam Bots that I have ever had to ban and I really would like to keep it that way so if you have a complaint take it up in private with Jr, myself, or as a last resort Jeff. Thank you!

Kaldath’s Caption Contest #62

Ladies and Gentlemen it is once again time for our caption contest, however before we get started I have a bit of an announcement. I have decided to stop doing this contest as a weekly thing and instead will be returning to the format I had when I first started it. Starting with this one the caption contest will be bi-weekly from now on, meaning that I will be posting a new contest every other week with the contest winners being announced during the off weeks.

Now with that out of the way, it is time for all you machiners out there to give me your best dialogue for this image:

Beast boy 1

 

The normal rules apply, which are: You are limited to Three (3) entries which are due by 5:00 PM Eastern Time on Tuesday March 31st. Of course I as always expect you to keep your entries no worse than PG-13 in nature and that you follow all the normal rules of the forum when writing your caption for the above image. That being said I wish you all Good luck!

Caption Contest Returns next week!

I do not plan on writing a post this week as I am not feeling all that well, but like the topic says I am planning on bringing back the caption contest next week and see how that goes.

Kaldath’s Corner: Daredevil Netflix exclusive

Recently I heard about a new Marvel comics TV show that is being released soon “Daredevil” and thought to myself, cool I’d love to see that! The problem is this show is going to be exclusive to Netflix and though I used to be a subscriber however I switched from Netflix to Hulu Plus a couple years back due to a larger Anime content on Hulu.

Anime Talk: White-Washing?

This week on Anime Talk I want to discuss a topic I briefly touched upon in the comments of a previous Anime Talk talking about the live action Ghost in the Shell Movie that Dreamworks is putting together. That topic would be the White-Washing of Asian character in the Hollywood adaptations of the works in which the characters have originally appeared.  For those not familiar with the term, white-washing is the practice of casting the white actor or actress for a role of a character that is of a different race in the source material in this case Asians.

Anime Talk: How Do you Watch ?

Hello fellow Machiners, and Anime fans, on this edition of “Anime Talk”  I want to find out how each of you watch Anime? Do you still purchase DVD/Blu-Ray Discs? Do you download (legally I hope) your anime from a service like iTunes, or Amazon instant video? Are you limited to what is on television on channels like the Cartoon Network? or Do you subscribe to a video streaming service like Netflix or Hulu plus ?

Ideas wanted

Sooo, I am having a bit of writers block at the moment and can’t think of anything to write about presently. When I get like this I turned to you for your suggestions. What would you like me to write about for tomorrow’s post? Give me your suggestions. The topics I normally write about are :

Anime Talk – Anything anime ( if I know about it anyway ), not so much on Manga as I don’t read it but if I find something interesting I will discuss it.

Bad Super Costumes – pretty self-explanatory, if there is a costume in comics, super movies, heck even anime and manga that I think is bad it gets discussed here, though I haven’t done one of these in a long long time.

Poll Position – Basically I pick a subject like what Spiderman costume is better, or who would win in a fight between X and Y and put up a poll for you to vote on. Again I haven’t done one of these in a long while.

Kaldath’s Corner – I write about any old thing that piques my interest that doesn’t fall into one of the categories above.

 

So as I said I can’t come up with an idea to write about this week so make me a suggestion and hopefully one of them will break this writers block. If not I apologize in advance for not writing anything of interest this week!
